Road tripping: Balmaha

Saturday was the nicest day Scotland has seen in … I don’t know how long. After what seems like the longest winter ever, there was actual sun. I could hardly believe it. Since the weather was in our favour we had two options: sit in the garden and soak it up or get out of the city. We opted for the later, and an hour-and-a-half later, we found ourselves in Balmaha, on the banks of Loch Lomond. Super accessible (like I said, 1.5 hours from Edinburgh, 30 mins from Glasgow) Balmaha offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy a piece of...

My favourite lifestyle websites

We all have them; those websites that you visit day in, day out, knowing that there will always be content that excites you. With the internet being what it is, distilling the good from the bad can be quite a task, which is why I’m sharing five of my favourite lifestyle websites. These sites have made the cut because they have a good balance of content, the quality is high and they leave me wanting more.  Here goes: 1. The Pool – If The Pool isn’t on your daily list of website to visit it should be. The content is...

Brunch at Salt Cafe

I LOVE brunch. In fact, such is my predisposition for food that’s not quite breakfast, not quite lunch, consuming more of it made it into my goals for 2018. Yip, this girl loves her eggs. Why is it that I love brunch so much? Firstly, my Monday to Friday breakfast is normally consumed at my desk, so is limited to yoghurt, fruit, porridge or a snack bar. There’s nothing wrong with any of those things, but let’s face it, nobody is going to choose any of those options versus a warmed croissant or eggs royale. If you would, it’s probably...

January 2018 finds

It’s mid-way through January, which can only mean one thing: it’s time for a monthly finds post. I’ve come across a few noteworthy things since my last post, meaning there are lots of new things I recommend adding to your eating/drinking/viewing regime. Enjoy! 1. The Primal Pantry Paleo bars – I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks and Primal Pantry bars tick all of the boxes. The fact that they are paleo approved is another plus point. There is a variety of flavours, but my personal favourite is the raw almond and cashew variety. Delish. 2. The Crown –...

Hello, 2018

It feels like forever since I wrote a blog post. In reality, I last posted in October, so a lifetime in blogging terms but in actual terms, it’s not that long, I suppose. I can attribute my hiatus to a multitude of things, more commonly referred to as life. Major home renovations combined with a busy job and various other intermissions resulted in a feeling akin to the later half of 2017 disappearing in a puff of smoke. In fact, if I’m honest, I feel like 2017 went by quicker than ever. The saying, ‘time flies’ has never felt truer. So here...

October 2017 finds

/
You would think kitchen renovations would keep me from new discoveries, but no. In fact, surfing the web for some beauty in the world while my real life is covered in dust has kept me going. So with that, here are a few of the best things I’ve stumbled across this month: 1. As you know I’ve been renovating for a while and in my quest for furniture I discovered The Sofa & Chair Company. One word; wow. This company has the most beautiful luxury furniture, with everything from luxury rugs to beds, dining tables, lighting, artwork and more. Their...
