Advocate's Close Edinburgh Old Town

Hello from a very rainy Edinburgh! We’ve just come home from a little shopping spree on Princes Street, completely soaked. Matthew’s going to Lisbon for a week with the lads, so he needed some summer clothes, and we didn’t come home empty handed. I might’ve also bought myself a little something…:)

My New Hair!

Here it finally is; my fringe!

After 3 years of cutting my own hair (the hairdresser said my hair was almost 2″ longer in the back haha) I decided that it’s time for a proper haircut. And it was worth the effort, it’s such a mood lifter to have a new look! Matthew thinks he has a new girlfriend now, that’s how unadventurous I’ve been when it comes to my head in the past…Might still dye it darker though, will have to see what it looks in daylight first.

Ciao a tutti!

Hope you’re all having as nice a Sunday as I am. The sun has been shining all day for a change, and I feel very energetic as I’ve been to the gym and then climbed Arthur’s seat, followed by a super healthy quinoa-black bean-salmon salad for lunch. Slightly better than the hangover yesterday…

Winter Fashion Likes

I confess; I’ve been spending time on Pinterest again…And here’s the result – a collection of styles and items I like this winter. I really, really like that golden midi-dress in the middle and thought it would be perfect for NYE – but it’s nowhere to be found. Typical.

Forgotten Photos From 1970

Hi all,

When we were in Finland and visiting our summer house (that we call ‘the Villa’) Matthew found an old film spool lying on the floor. He got a little bit obsessed with it and decided to get it developed here in Edinburgh. We found out that they stopped making this 120 mm film 20 years ago. It had to have belonged to my grandfather who was into his photography. As he passed away in 1988 the film must’ve been at least 30 years old.

Back To Work

Hello!

My second day at my new job is now over, phew. My brain feels like mush, but I must say I do enjoy feeling useful again after a two month long period of unemployment! It was nice to have that time in between jobs though, it made the whole moving and settling in process so much easier and more effective. Plus I finally got around to starting a blog 🙂 and using my new sewing machine!

Charity Shopping

Hola!

As I mentioned in my last post, I have bought a few things since moving here…But mostly second hand. Have a look at my findings:

I really liked the colour of the top that is from one of the big high street stores. I think it goes well with this 90s denim skirt I bought in a second hand shop years ago.

A Few Favourite Second Hand Pieces

This is a map of the charity shops in Edinburgh, as you can see there are quite a few – way more than in Helsinki. Since I’ve been here I’ve visited several already, and must admit that I haven’t been able to resist buying a thing or two…But it’s ok since it is so cheap, right?! And the money goes to charity!
