Raw Cacao – a hug in a mug

My friend Ozzie, who lives in LA, teaching yoga, recently advised me to get on board with Raw Cacao. Of course i’d heard of it because I haven’t been living under a stone lately, but I’d never tried it. I tried to source it locally to me in Edinburgh, (North) but failed and took toContinue reading “Raw Cacao – a hug in a mug”

It’s Only Hair

Like most women, I know my hair very well, I know what colour suits me, what cut suits me, and how to style it. The joy I have in my hair is mirrored by the lack of experience some hairdressers have with it. This experience, I know, comes because they do not know it asContinue reading “It’s Only Hair”

Book Review: Sapiens

I could just write, wow, and stop this post, but I think I owe to all of us to pen a few paragraphs on this fantastic book. As a writer, slash, blogger, slash,, reader, slash, person, I love books! A few years back I turned to books that taught you something. This wonderful moment convenientlyContinue reading “Book Review: Sapiens”

Hello, again, hello..

  In an attempt to keep writing, I am going to attempt to inject some life back into this here blog. I’ve had dalliances elsewhere, I’m not going to lie, but, like a crazed lover, I keep coming back this little lady. Who I am now? I Am Karlie. Where it all began, all thoseContinue reading “Hello, again, hello..”

T2 – In review

Ahh Edinburgh, what a wonderful city to live in. It’s beauty is rarely captured on screen, (unless of course you scroll Instagram with the hashtag Edinburgh), so it’s great to see it feature in Danny Boyle’s T2, the long awaited sequel to the iconic, Trainspotting. I watched it at the Cameo cinema, surrounded by theContinue reading “T2 – In review”

Get Your SWAG on Bloggers

So, how pants am I? You could be fooled into thinking pretty much so if you take these blog updates as anything to go by. However, I juggle a lot of things singlehandedly, so actually, sometimes, I think i’m pretty badass. But you don’t get to be badass without a good support network, and IContinue reading “Get Your SWAG on Bloggers”

2014 – Goodbyes and Good Hello’s

As 2014 takes its last breaths I’ll be sitting in an airport lounge ready to kick start my 2015, catching up with old friends in new and old spaces. So excited, but before I fast forward in time, let’s go back… 2014 has been a year of Hello’s and Goodbyes. So many more Hello’s thanContinue reading “2014 – Goodbyes and Good Hello’s”

You’re Still a Super Hot Female

It’s no secret I like Motivation quotes, I like them in the morning, in the afternoon, at night, wherever really, I ain’t fussy. A quote showed up in my twitter time line the other day, “Woman have 50 quotes sitting in their albums for when shit goes down” I immediately sent it to my friendContinue reading “You’re Still a Super Hot Female”

Karlie v Vintage?

I directed this stop motion video for my friends salon earlier in the year and have always been fascinated by the way vintage looks on other people. The little video contains my lovely friend Juliet, with hair done by Anne Wilson at Broughton Place Hair and Beauty. Two of my good friends pull it offContinue reading “Karlie v Vintage?”
