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.

Weekend Fun

Posted on

Hey folks!

Hope everyone’s had a good weekend! My weekend somehow just whizzed by at the speed of light – again. On Saturday we celebrated Matthew’s parents’ 32nd anniversary as well as his dad’s birthday with a long lunch at La P’tite Folie. (It was such a nice lunch that I completely forgot to take photos.)

Christmas Is In Da House

Decorated Christmas Tree

Here she finally is – our beloved Christmas tree! She’s had to endure the cold and rain in our backyard since October, but thankfully she survived, greener than ever, so we could  put her in a corner and bling her up. Not bad for a first Christmas tree, right? I wish we could keep her throughout the winter, she just lights up the room and makes it feel homier. Pretty sure Matthew won’t let me though…

Edinburgh Christmas Market

Posted on

Hello everyone!

Last Saturday we decided to defy the sea of people and venture into the Edinburgh Christmas Market in Prince Street Gardens to soak up some of the Christmas spirit. However, the place was packed (even more so than the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park in London last year) so we gave up pretty quickly and went to Matthew’s folks for dinner, some vino tinto and chilling in front of a log fire instead! I managed to snap a few photos though – how beautiful isn’t that pink sunset?!

Around the World in 580 Days – Part 1

Hello!

Every now and then (especially when it’s cold and dark outside) I find myself looking at the photos from the year and a half long trip I did with three friends back in 2007-2009. We spent around five months travelling in Russia, China and South East Asia, a year working and travelling in Australia and another couple of months or so travelling in Fiji, New Zealand, Mexico, New York and last but not least London. (Who knew three of us would find ourselves living in London two years later?!)

My Dream Home

I’ve become slightly hooked on all these TV programs where people build their own houses, redecorate their houses, try to find houses to buy, renovate their houses and so on – you get the idea. There’s so many of these programs here in the UK! I’ve even started playing with the thought of one day building my own home (who would’ve thought?) , just so I can make it look exactly like I want. A girl can always dream 🙂

Winter is Coming

Posted on

Just a quick update from the land of whisky and kilts. Not much going on here to be honest, life in the thirties isn’t really that different from being 29 – apart from that my bank here now thinks I’m ready for a credit card. (I said no thanks.)

A Foodie’s Heaven

Posted on

I think my birthday dinner was so exquisite that it deserves a blog post of its own. We had around 8 courses all-together, that’s pretty much 4 more courses than I’ve ever had at one sitting. And we had amazing wines with every course too (in hindsight I don’t understand how I was able to drink goon when living in Australia!). The award winning hotel restaurant at Monachyle Mhor is renown among foodies, and many travel to the middle of nowhere in the Scottish Highlands just to eat at the restaurant.
