Finally here!

Lana and I survived the flight (already dreading flying alone with two small kids!) and arrived in Helsinki safely at 23.25 on Wednesday evening. My mum and dad picked us up and 45 minutes later we were in Porvoo and Lana started exploring the house and the toys – so we didn’t go to bed until 2am, which I think we’re both still feeling the consequences of!

Join Me for a Magical Instameet at Lauriston Castle

Last weekend I attended an Instameet (for work) organised by the Edinburgh Magic Festival at Lauriston Castle, and it was such a nice event that I want to share some photos with you! The reason the Magic Festival did an Instameet at the castle is that they’ll actually be doing ‘Secret Room’ shows there during the festival where a magician takes you through the rooms and does magic tricks inspired by the room itself. I would go if I wasn’t in Finland!

The Cutest Courtyard Cafe

Yesterday I attended an Instameet at Lauriston Castle organised by Edinburgh Magic Festival. It was a great meet-up I’ll be blogging more about later, but meanwhile I just wanted to share some snaps from the incredibly pretty courtyard cafe at the castle I couldn’t stop taking photos of!

OOTD: Baby Belly in a Babydoll Dress

Posted on

Lately we’ve had days where it’s been warm enough to wear only a summer dress, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this rare treat! This baby blue dress is from Zara and even though it’s not from the maternity section it easily fits my baby belly. I feel it’s quite flattering and hides the bump fairly well – and most importantly it makes me feel pretty.

A Perfect Father’s Day

Posted on

We’ve had a long day today and a brilliant Father’s Day altogether. Lana’s been on form and walked with us for hours and hours as we didn’t even bring the buggy. She’s passed out in her bed now and I think we will be soon too! Warm weather always makes you that little bit extra tired.

It’s been such a warm day today that I’ve been walking around with just a summer dress on – which doesn’t happen often I can assure you! And it looks like tomorrow will be just as nice – perfect for Father’s Day.

My First Trimester (second child)

Posted on

I’m 20 weeks already, which means I’m halfway there and that it’s about time to write about the first trimester before I forget everything! I have to say this pregnancy has gone so much quicker, just as everyone says. We’re having another girl, in case anyone’s missed it 🙂

And We’re Having…

…another girl!! I had my second scan today and we were so happy and relieved to be told that the baby looks perfectly well in every way and is growing as she should. And there was no way we weren’t going to find out the sex! We got such a good view that we could tell ourselves that it was a girl even before the radiologist told us 🙂

El Cartel – Best Mexican in Edinburgh?

Posted on

I can’t remember having done anything as a couple since New Year’s Eve, so it was about time Matthew and I did something together – without a super-energetic 2 year old who demands all our attention! To keep things simple we decided to just have lunch at El Cartel – a small Mexican place on Thistle Street many claim to be the best one in Edinburgh. The best one I’ve tried here at least!
