The Dome
Though we've lived in Edinburgh for a long time now, we had never been to The Dome before until this evening. It was beautiful with a huge stained glass dome, sparkling chandeliers and gorgeous bo...
Mum & Dad brought Nana through to visit this morning and we went for lunch at Loch Fyne, her favourite restaurant in Edinburgh. I treated everyone to some fried oysters to start and they were ...
Palm Vaults
We started our day off with breakfast at the Palm Vaults in Hackney. All pink and green, this gorgeous cafe is filled with plants and palms, making it feel like a greenhouse. I tried their granol...
The Gibson Girl
We started our morning with breakfast at the Clerkenwell Grind. Tom had salmon and toast while I had an acai bowl and matcha latte. We then had a flat viewing at a converted school in Kennington....
We were up early for a trip to London this morning so perked ourselves up with coffee at Nomad Cafe. Right next to Haymarket Station, it's the perfect place to grab a quick coffee and pastry befor...
Milk Juicery
I'm often quite shy about sticking my nose into churches for a peek but St Mary's Cathedral looked so impressive from the outside that I couldn't resist. It was just as impressive on the inside wi...
My parents came through to visit today and we took them for lunch at Bentoya. Tom ordered some sushi and it came in a boat. Everyone was feeling peckish later on, so I attempted to recreate Falko...
Hoot The Redeemer
Louisa was up in Edinburgh today, so Kirsty & Malcolm came down from Dundee and we all went out for lunch. We started out with nibbles at The Refinery where Malcolm ordered the largest salad I...
Organic Delicious Cafe
The blossom was out in full bloom when we headed out in Morningside this afternoon. There's a new organic cafe called Organic Delicious that we wanted to try out for lunch. We tried the vegan sau...
Badger & Co
We met up with Katie & Phil after work and went for dinner at Badger & Co. I ordered the parmesan gnocchi with pumpkin, chestnut and rocket pesto. It sounded delicious from the menu but wh...
Maki & Ramen have opened a new location on Fountainbridge, right next to us, so we met up with Pamela after work and headed along to check it out. The restaurant is in the same place where Kan...
Dalry Cemetery
We've lived next to Dalry Cemetery for over five years but never ventured in until today. I loved how overgrown it was with lots of ivy and sprawling trees. There were a row of mausoleums in the ...
We met up with Pamela this morning for a catch up and brunch at The Voyage Of Buck. I love their pancakes, but I'd ordered them last time so went for something different and tried the chia seed bo...
It was Phil's birthday today and Katie had made a reservation for all of us at Chaophraya but not told him that Tom & I would be joining them for dinner. Chaophraya is somewhere I've wanted to...
Kenny & Claire have added a extension onto their house with a new kitchen and invited us over for dinner so we could admire it. They cooked up an amazing meal, starting with filo tarts.
We got some new bedsheets decorated with kittycorns (cat unicorns) and Bobbin seems to like them. We've discovered an amazing new vegetarian Indian restaurant in Edinburgh called Kalpna where we'v...
My Vitriol
We headed through to Glasgow today and I was on the hunt for ghost signs. We went for lunch at Bar Bloc where we sat under the neon, ordered veggie hot dogs and giggled at the photos of Trump &...
North Berwick
It was a gorgeous sunny day so we decided to put the roof down on Fig and drive along the coat to North Berwick. We went for lunch at the Lobster Shack, but weren't alone in that idea, as there wa...
Styling Menswear
Jacamo got in touch with the challenge to see if we could style menswear, so I teamed up with Phil who offered to be my willing fashion victim. Phil picked a grey suit jacket from Joe Browns and I...
Wagamama Party
Wagamama are opening a new restaurant on St Andrews Square next week and Vicky invited me along to their press party to check it out. The new restaurant has quite an industrial feel with a huge me...

Katie made me this gorgeous cat bat necklace out of shrink plastic. Samantha Germaine Sim created this amazing Crafterella art for Superhero Sunday yesterday.
Alice In Wonderland Tea Party
It was Mother's Day today, and also a chance to celebrate Nana's birthday, so I invited everyone over for an Alice In Wonderland tea party. I'd made so much food that we needed to use all three of...
It was a lovely afternoon so we decided to head to Cramond Village. We went for a drink at the Cramond Inn where we sat next to the fire and read books from the library. There were so many cute d...
