Edinburgh vegan festival goodies.

August 26, 2016

Last Sunday my sister & I decided to pop along to the Edinburgh vegan festival in town. It was on both days over the weekend but we figured it might be slightly quieter on the Sunday. It took place in a lovely hotel and there were so many yummy food options! Also by the time we got there some things had been reduced so it was even better.

I came away with two mashed potato & haggis pies (I heated them up at home and had them with some gravy, oh my), a chocolate cupcake from Missy's vegan cupcakes, two marshmallow popsicles and a delicious salted caramel donut. At the venue we also got hot dogs and gelato, everything was just so damn good, I only wish it was on more than once a year haha.

Vegan cupcakes & the Dorco Eve 6.

August 18, 2016

The other weekend I made my first visit to the quarterly vegan market down in Leith. I believe the "normal" market is on there every Saturday, but once a month it features tons of vegan goodies, yay! I already knew that I'd be making a beeline for Missy's Cupcakes as I'd seen them featured all over instagram. Oh my god, they did not disappoint. I went for a blackforest gateau, banana split & spiced apple crumble. Every single one was amazing, I couldn't possibly pick a favourite! I also got a delicious houmous pitta wrap which I'm drooling at the thought of now...

Another thing I wanted to mention (I know, cupcakes to razors, strange transition) is this Dorco Eve 6 ladies razor I was kindly sent. It came at perfect timing as I was in need of a new one and didn't know which cruelty free options I had in the general shops. I believe this brand is cruelty free, but correct me if I'm wrong. Anyway, it's a wonderful little razor which glides perfectly even over those awkward areas. Unlike most razors it features a double 3-blade format. It's also got moisturising benefits as the little bands contain aloe, vitamin e & lavender. Plus it costs under £5!

Hope you're having a lovely day,

Blue & pink florals.

August 05, 2016

Jacket & shorts | H&M
Top | Topshop
Bag | eBay (old)

These photos are from a couple of weeks ago before I had a little hair chop chop. I'm so bad at forgetting to edit things, sorry! I picked up this sweet Topshop top on eBay recently for under £5. I fell in love with the complimentary pastel shades and floral patterns. It's perfect for the warmer months too as it's so sheer. Whilst I do think it would look good with a super girly skirt, I decided to darken it up slightly with my faux leather shorts. Also I'm still so obsessed with this tote bag I got from eBay absolute years ago (explains any slight grubbiness haha)!

Even the mention of the "e word" is making me want to go browse for some bargains, such a dangerous obsession! What do you think of this outfit? :)

A walk to Dean Village.

August 04, 2016

Last week my boyfriend and I ventured out on a sunny day with a pretty destination in mind - Dean Village. I'd always wanted to go for a walk through this area and it didn't disappoint. The buildings are stunning and there's so much variety of lovely flowers and trees. We walked through the Water of Leith to get there (and maybe did a bit of Pokemon hunting along the way, ha). Also met some swans who decided to hiss at us and cute little ducks. It was a perfect day weather wise, with it being warm but not overly sunny. For once I actually got nice weather on a day off!

We ended up walking a bit further after this and went through the outside area of the Edinburgh modern art gallery. There were a few things to see but we definitely need to go back some time when it's actually open.

Was lovely getting out and about with our cameras as we're always saying we don't do that enough :)

Blue stripes.

July 15, 2016

Top | Vintage
Jeans | Attitude
Shoes | Primark
Earrings | Forever 21

I've actually had these jeans since I was a teenager and luckily they still fit. I used to wear them all the time a few years ago and had forgotten all about them. Whilst going through a few bags of old clothes the other day they were rediscovered, yay! I love the high-waisted fit and prefer to wear them with the bottoms rolled up a little. I just had to pair them with these adorable cream Primark shoes but Converse would look equally as good.

The top was a find at a local vintage fair just over a year ago. Anything striped instantly gives me a French vibe, but I think that's just due to my obsession with French movies haha. As it's not always (ever) warm here in the evenings, it makes a perfect summer piece.
