Cairnie Fruit Farm

September 14, 2015

Here’s the thing about Scotland: when the sun comes out…civilians often panic. People run around in a frenzy trying to “catch” the sun, and frantically make plans that INCLUDE the sunny weather as if they are all on death row and this is the last time they will see sunlight ever again. This is because here in Scotland, you never know how long the sun will last and when it will hibernate again, so we never take it for granted. In fact, we are a nation of TRUE blue sun worshipers. On a particularly glorious and rare sun soaked afternoon […]

Come Rome With Me

August 31, 2015

You know that goosebumpy feeling you get when you look at a REALLY attractive man from across the room and literally SWOON and feel all giddy inside? Have you ever felt that sensation with a location? I have! Rome always manages to just DO it for me. I’m mystified why people claim Paris is the city of love. I beg to differ – for me it’s Rome. As an independent single woman, I feel like I don’t have to necessarily be in “amore” to appreciate the moon in the sky, looking like a big ol’ pizza pie! This is a […]

House of Corsets

July 22, 2015

Ever since the 60′s, the use of girdles and similar shapewear has been shunned and shelved as unfashionable and restrictive BUT recently there’s been somewhat of an underground corset renaissance goin’ on. With celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Jessica Alba frequently sporting waist trainers to achieve their enviable curves, it’s once again become a hot topic! Personally, I love the look of corsets! They’re romantic, ornate and have a vintage appeal. Another major advantage is they look good on absolutely EVERY shape!!!! Unfortunately, many brands on Ebay CLAIM they sell gorgeous “corsets” for a cheap price, but in reality, […]

Exploring Istanbul

July 3, 2015

As you may already gather, I have an incurable case of wanderlust. On my Pintrest board, I’ve collected quite a few locations I’ve wanted to see over time and sometimes I whip these photos out out and have a visual break, mentally. Some of these places include Santorini in Greece, Petra in Jordan, and many many more!! I’ve always wanted to visit Istanbul. It’s such a global city and one of the fastest-growing metropolitan economies in the world. It’s fascinating how it’s located in both Europe and Asia and has such a blend of many cultures with a rich heritage […]

Photoshoot at Belgravia Studios, London

June 14, 2015

Some fashion bloggers have REALLY nailed the art in posing for natural looking photos. You know which ones I mean! Golden sunlight, strategically highlighting cascading waves as the stylish subject appears to laugh charmingly and merrily into the distance. It’s all very convincing when you scroll through these #iwokeuplikedis mini masterpieces on Instagram. I’m not really one of those bloggers!! Confession: I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I kinda just usually stand one leg behind the other and do a rather awkward tight lipped Mona Lisa smile. Less imaginative but hey, it works and it’s my thang. Truthfully, I […]

“Savage Beauty” Exhibition

June 1, 2015

Today, I’m writing a blog post from London! I’ve been here for almost two weeks as I really needed a change of scenery and a break from the balmy, blistering heat! I’ve always adored London (and any city that has an energetic buzz! As you might gather, I’m not much of a nature oriented kinda girl!) Except maybe the beach or Hyde Park … Whenever I come here, I always try to fit in a few exhibitions and this time around I was really dying to check out Alexander McQueen’s “Savage Beauty” exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum. This […]
