It’s the Small Things

Posted on

This morning I took Lana to a local playgroup with only wooden toys that she likes going to. Today was not her lucky day though as she got scratched in the face by a little girl and then by a little boy and we ended up leaving the playgroup with a Lana who looked like she’d been in a fight. Kids can be so brutal! Luckily she didn’t seem too phased about the whole thing (I on the other hand felt like slapping the two kids)!

My New Cluse Watch

For the past 20 years or so I’ve had no interest in wearing a watch – I just don’t like how they stick to my skin when I get a bit hot and that claustrophobic feeling of wearing something around my wrist. So I surprised myself when I suddenly found myself craving not only one, but two watches!

OOTD: Pleated Midi Skirt

A few weeks ago we visited a pop-up expo consisting of pavilions designed by five different European cities. The expo was a part of the Scotland-wide Festival of Architecture that is celebrated throughout 2016 with various different events, exhibitions, tours and walks. Whilst there I realised that my outfit reflected the earthy colours of the wood, so I asked Matthew to take a few photos.

One Day of Summer

Posted on

It’s finally happened; summer is here! Well for only one day for now as it’ll be raining all day tomorrow according to the weather forecast…But I’m grateful that we’ve had a much needed sunny and warm day on the beach – I actually think this has been the warmest day I’ve experienced during my 3+ years in the Burgh! (+25 degrees haha)

Sunday Stroll at Lauriston Castle and Cramond

We usually take it pretty easy on weekend mornings, but last Sunday we were out the door at 9.30am! We were picked up by our friends and drove to Lauriston Castle, a 16-century tower house just a 15-minute ride away. The weather wasn’t great, but at least it didn’t rain (I’m starting to be really, really sick of this non-summery weather here – the other week I had to get out Lana’s winter coat because it was so chilly)!

7-Ingredient Raspberry Raw Cheesecake Recipe

I’ve made this cake three times and have changed the recipe each time – and as I’m now happy with it it’s time to share the love! This is the easiest of cakes to make and as healthy as a cake gets too. The raspberries and lemon make it a bit zingy, so it’s not a very rich cake at all.

In Love with Alcúdia Old Town

Posted on

One of my highlights of our Mallorca holiday was visiting beautiful Alcúdia Old Town. It was such a peaceful and quiet place in comparison to the busy beach, with gorgeous terracotta buildings and interesting old doors and windows. We walked there from Puerto Alcúdia, which took us around half an hour – but there are also buses.

Our First Family Holiday

Posted on

Matthew’s watching the Euro 2016 final (which he says is the worst game of football he’s ever seen btw), so it’s a good time to finally do a blog post about our holiday in Alcudia, Mallorca! This was our first real family holiday if you don’t count all the trips to Finland we’ve made – pretty exciting in other words.
