Art & Vintage in Edinburgh

The other week we were viewing a flat in Leith (yes, we’re thinking about buying again…) and since we were in the area I wanted to visit a cafe/vintage shop/art gallery on Lyne Street in Abbeyhill that I was clued in on through Instagram. As soon as we stepped inside I took a liking to the place and decided I want to do a blog post to support the shop. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera, so photos aren’t great I’m afraid…

Rock House InstaMeet

I’ve mentioned that I had a fun work event I had to attend when my parents were visiting, and I’ve finally managed to put together a blog post about it – with quite a few photos so you’ve been warned…Couldn’t help myself as the venue, Rock House in the photo above, is just too stunning! 

My New Job

Posted on

I’ve now been a working mum for a full week, which actually means just two days per week as I’m employed part-time. Although to be honest I’ve been working a lot more than that in order to get on top of everything – I’m sure you know what it’s like with a new job! 

Spring Wanties

I was experimenting with making my own online collages using Polyvore and thought I’d share my very basic creation here as well. It’s actually quite fun, and free to use if you want to try it out! This is a collage of things I’m dreaming of buying (should maybe get a job first though!).

DIY Bar Stool Project

A while back I mentioned my little do-it-yourself project that I would share with you if it turned out ok – and since it actually turned out better than I was expecting I proudly present my old-new teal blue bar stool 🙂

Coffee, Food & Nordic Design

During Lana’s and mine Finland visit we spent a day in Helsinki with a good friend, eating well and checking out the Design Museum. Having lived in Helsinki for most of my twenties the city will always have a special place in my heart and I’m hoping I’ll get to live there again one day – or at least so close that I can visit often!

I’m Doing Something Right

I love plants and think they look nice and freshen up any room, but I’ve never really taken the time to learn how to look after them. Still our plants seem to thrive for some reason – although most of them are in their original small pots and don’t receive any TLC apart from water once a week or less. Maybe it’s our bright flat that is the secret behind it all?

New Living Room

The other day when Matthew was working from home he suddenly decided it was time for a change. Of the living room. I protested but let him move around the furniture as a test – and now I’m not sure what I like better!
