#GreatCitySwap - A Trip To Glasgow


I love Edinburgh, this my friends is quite an obvious fact. I grew up in West Lothian but spent many a weekend hanging out in the capital, mainly on Cockburn Street 'cause you know 'goth life'. I always felt a connection with the city and made the move when I was 18 and I've never looked back (well I did briefly move back home but it wasn't for long.) 

Edinburgh is a truly wonderful city and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else but sometimes seeing the same sights every day can get a little, dare I say, boring. 

As much as I would love to jet off on holiday by bank balance says "hahahahah no" but that doesn't mean I have to stay planted where I am especially when you can pop on a train and be transported to another equally fantastic Scottish city.

Getting In The Halloween Spirit With Fort Kinnaird


I love shopping, eating and watching films. Bring them all together and you basically get the most perfect day ever. That is exactly what I did one very windy Sunday!

Especially with Halloween just around the corner, this was the perfect time to have a spooky themed day out with my wee mother (who is also a fan of this time of the year).

OOTD: Ouija Board, Ouija Board


October finally here aka the best month of the whole year. The weather has taken a turn for the worst, the shops are full of pumpkin spice and of course, Halloween is just around the corner. 

After a year of stress, I am ready to actually make the most of my favourite month, so of course, I had to kick it off with a good old fashion OOTD post.

Frankly Fears: Found Footage Round-Up


Cast your mind back to 2014 when I decided to do a little horror movie series for October. I spent the whole month watching as many horror films as I can then doing terrible reviews on them. I always meant to do it again but life got in the way as usual, plus my reviewing skills really were terrible. 

However, with October fast approaching once again, I've decided it is time to bring it back but with a little twist. Okay, not so much a twist as it is clearly in the title but this time around I am going to focus primarily on found footage. 

Love it or hate it, it's a genre which has kinda taken over the world of horror.

OOTD: Autumn, Stevie Nicks & My Feelings On Blogging


It's finally September and you know what means - Autumn has officially landed. Okay, technically Autumn starts on the 22nd of September according to google but moving on...

It's been a while since I've posted on my blog and a new season seemed the perfect time to start getting into the blogging game again. Normally when I've been absent from blogging it's been due to some crappy health thing but for once this is due to good stuff aka starting my new job. 

Now that I feel a little more settled as a working gal again and my health problems are a little less difficult, I feel this is the right time for me to get back to my normal routine.

OOTD: Nike Bomber Jacket


Recently it feels like good luck is something that just passes me by but one department of my life has been pretty good - shopping!

So yeah, I am pretty darn skint so alas shopping hasn't been high up on my list but I seem to be on a roll when it comes to amazing charity shop finds. 

In the last few months I've come across gorgeous dresses,quirky tops and a pair of leather look trousers that amazingly actually fitted.

However, these finds pale in comparison to the bad boy that I am about to talk about.

Review - The Salvation of Leith


I've lived in Leith for over 6 years now and I am happy to call it home. What's been interesting about my time here has watching how much the area has changed, even in the fairly short time I've been living here. I've loved seeing new bars and restaurants pop up, so I was excited to get to try the menu at The Salvation of Leith*. 

I'd visited The Salvation a couple of times before ahead of my 'foodie blogger' visit, though it had only been for drinks, I was already quite a fan so I was intrigued to see what their food menu was like.
