Over the weekend I have been thinking about all the things that have been making me happy recently, so I thought I’d share some of them with you all.


This program sounds ridiculous and it took me years before I finally decided to watch it and see what the fuss is all about. And now I am hooked! I could explain it to you but it will sounds insanely dull, just watch it for yourselves. Keep an eye out for my favourites, June and Leon!

Wedding planning

Yes it can be a tad stressful but ultimately I think it is completely awesome that I am planning the most important day of my life when I will be marrying my best friend and in my opinion, one of the most spectacular people on this planet. This time next year I will be a Mrs!

Winter bedding

A while ago I saw my fellow Edinburgh blogger The Likely Lady Instagram some adorable ski themed bedding, so I asked her where she found it and off I went to Primark to get my own, et voilà! Not only does it look adorable but it is so soft and cosy – perfect for dark winter nights.



As I carry on the theme of my bed, I also bought a new sleep mask in Primark. It was a steal at only £2 and so soft and comfortable. Sleep is one of the most important things in my life and I suffer everyone minute of every day with fatigue as a result of having Multiple Sclerosis. You can read more about that side of my life here.

Cute mugs

I drink bucket loads of tea and coffee so I love a good mug! My other half bought me this beauty on our recent holiday to visit my sister in Seville. Spot the translation typo… I think it gives it character.

Crisp autumnal days

This is the view from our balcony in Edinburgh and it is packed it shades of orange at the minute.

Cat shoes

I am well known for never wearing trainers but I couldn’t resist these adorable Keds plimsoles designed by Taylor Swift.

Mexico in Edinburgh

There are a wealth of Mexican eateries in Edinburgh but one of the most recent to appear was El Toro Loco in the Grassmarket. This was my spicy chilli chocolate mousse I enjoyed there a couple weeks ago.

Christmas is coming

Yes I know, “it’s only October!” but Christmas is just around the corner. In fact, it is a mere 60 days away! So unless you want to get all of your gifts from the 24 hours ASDA on Christmas Eve, I recommend you start stocking up!

I was sent this lovely gift set from Arran Aromatics…
