Prague part 1

Have you ever been somewhere, knew you liked it, but didn’t realise just how much you loved it until you looked at the pictures? That is exactly how I would sum up Prague, and who can blame me when it’s this darn pretty. Back in March, we spent three nights there and weather wise we got seriously lucky, I’m talking 18c and wall-to-wall sunshine, which for that time of year in the Czech Republic’s capital, is warm. We weren’t complaining – the chance to wander around in t-shirts was welcomed after a long Scottish winter. Having left Edinburgh at 6am...

Girl Boss

“This isn’t a post about Prague,” I hear you all say, bemused. You’re right. There’s no mention of the Czech Republic’s beautiful capital beyond this sentence. Why? Because I just finished watching Girl Boss on Netflix and I had to write about it. Full disclosure – there are no spoilers in this post.But what you will find are many, many reasons to watch this fantastic show, which is a loose – ‘real loose’, as the titles describe it – chronicling of the rise and rise of Sophia Amoruso to the self-proclaimed Girl Boss she is today. So what’s so good...

April 2017 finds

How the heck is it April already? So far, this year seems to have flown by, but before I go full throttle into my Prague blog posts, I thought I’d take a brief pause to highlight a few of my recent favourite finds: 1. The Good Fight – Fans of The Good Wife rejoice, there is a spin-off series and it is awesome. Centre stage is the ever-inspiring Diane Lockhart (has anyone else noticed how on-point her accessorising is?) and a whole new host of characters brimming with potential. I implore you to go and watch it. Now. 2. Almond...

Falling in love with LOVEThESIGN

One of the things that sealed the deal for me when we moved house was the prospect of outdoor space. As I’ve got older, I want to be outside more, and I don’t want to encounter four flights of a spiral staircase in order to do so. Now, I can open my door and step straight into the garden. In my world, you can’t put a price on that. Just as my thoughts were turning to garden furniture, LOVEThESIGN got in touch. If LOVEThESIGN isn’t on your radar, it should be. This beautiful online boutique is based in Milan, and...

Bloom gin + a very Mother’s Day cocktail

In my last post I talked about one of my recent finds: 31Dover.com, an online drinks vendor that stocks everything from wine and Champagne, to gin, beer and barware. Their range – and knowledge – of liquor is seriously impressive. Last week, the fabulous people behind this website sent me a bottle of Bloom London Dry Gin. As you know, I’m a fan of gin; my go to Friday night drink is a Martini, enjoyed either in the bath or in front of the fire. So you can imagine how excited I was to mix up my usual juniper variety...

Monthly finds: March 2017

/
Isn’t it just lovely to see the sun in the morning? After what feels like an eternity of getting up in the dark, finally it’s the light streaming through the window that’s waking me up rather than my alarm. I have March to thank for that. The joy of this month extends beyond the light and the daffodils and the fact that spring is in the air. It’s also been brightened up by this month’s finds, all of which are worth checking out. Now. 1. 31Dover.com is a fantastic website loaded with Champagne, spirits and frankly, all things booze. When...
