Turning the tables with Turmeric

Ahhh dear, sweet coffee, you have been my constant companion for decades. For years we have strolled streets, sat in cafes, you’ve been the eavesdropper to many conversations and confessions, the giver of life, and a gift of love. But, we all knew it could not last and over the years, I have tried my […]

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 to […]

Overnight Oats

I was wary of overnight oats, mainly because I love oats, and didn’t want to fall out with them. If a cold oat isn’t in a sweet and buttery flapjack form, how on earth could they be good? I’m a convert now though, it’s a case of finding the right combination of add ons, and […]

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 as […]

I’m Bloody Ibiza!

On more than one occasion, by more than one person, i’ve been called Tenacious. It came back into my life this weekend, and as I twirled it around in my mouth, I thought of the pros and cons that come with this as your tagline. We’re all a little bit narcissistic in that we like […]

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 I […]

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 than […]

Vintage Fashion Blog – Part One, How To Organise

  How to put together a Blog Post. Well, the vintage shoot is now over and it was a hella lot of fun. Pictures will follow soon I promise. In the mean time, I wanted to share just how we got to the point of the photos and explain, how, if you’re interested you can […]

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 friend […]

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 off […]
