One of my 35 at 35 goals was to explore Scotland more. I had long drives north and ferry rides in mind. Turns out there’s lots of adventures to be found close by. We found Carron Valley Reservoir on google maps just 20mins away, so popped Seb in the boot and took a little drive one day last week.

A few weeks ago I was invited to a Body Shop at Home event in the Butterfly and Pig in Glasgow. This gave me a chance to not just stuff my face with wonderful cakes and sandwiches but also to sort out no29 on my 35 at 35 list, sort out a proper skincare regime.

Around this time last year whilst feeling a little bit down at getting so old I set myself a 35 at 35 to do list. To manage this I need to complete 5 a year, I didn’t quite hit 5 in 2015 but made a good start. Continue reading “I’ve Been Here for too Long – Update”
After my awesome party last year we decided on a little getaway for my birthday/new year this year. After much online searching I found the Bridge of Orchy Hotel. A lovely little 4 star hotel, close enough to the central belt we didn’t have to travel for hours but far enough away to take us to the middle of nowhere. They are also extremely dog friendly so little Seb was welcome. Continue reading “For Auld Lang Syne”
Our main reason for visiting Verona was to attend the open air opera festival which is held each summer. Verona has a wonderfully intact Roman amphitheater, perfect venue for opera on the balmy summer nights. I’ve wanted to experience this for years and it’s one of my 35 at 35. They have four different operas each festival. On the night we attended, Aida was showing. … Continue reading Aida – Open Air Opera
Last Sunday we knocked it out the park with our little beach day trip. The beach at Elie is even more gorgeous than we had hoped and the sun came out, who’d have expected that with the summer we’ve had. Nothing beats a day at the beach to clear out the cobwebs and brighten your mood. Throw in the happiest dog, some good friends and … Continue reading Take a Walk on the Beach
Apologies for my abscence this week, I’m not entirely sure were the week went. Funny how a couple of busy days makes you loose track of everything. This whole year in fact is rapidly disappearing, seriously how did we get to the end of July. I’ve completed only 2 of my 35 at 35 list. I really should be completing 7 a year … Continue reading Double Denim
Right now I’m likely running around a cold, wet, windy Edinburgh, well depending on how long your Sunday lie in is I might be finished. Yes today is the day, the Edinburgh Marathon Relay. I’m first up with the longest keg at 8.3 miles and I’ll be honest my training has not been up to much. I was running fairly regularly when I signed up … Continue reading Keep On Running

For those of you that follow me on Instagram and facebook I promised this tutorial last week, my apologises I got caught up with holiday plans. A few weeks ago I shared my love of full skirts, I’ve not been able to find the perfect one for me though. I wanted green, satin and a big bow, so figured I’d try and whip one up … Continue reading Your Finest Inspiration: Full Skirt – Tutorial
