20 Years in Scotland

Taken on my run this morning at Inverleith Park, Edinburgh

Today marks 20 years since my family packed up our bags, left our Surrey home in the south east of England and moved 500 miles north, to a house surrounded by nothing but fields near the small village of Laurencekirk in the north east of Scotland.

A Moment of Inspiration

Taken in another moment of inspiration, during an early morning run at the top of Primrose Hill last month. 

Writing. It's a big love of mine, and something which I do every day as part of my job at a creative agency in Edinburgh. But it's something I've neglected in my personal time over the last year or so.

American Beauty Haul

This post has been sitting in my drafts for a while, but better late than never!

No trip to the States would be complete without (multiple) visits to Sephora, right? Although I have heard through the grapevine that the beauty haven is coming soon to London, but we shall see...

Strangely enough, whilst in New York, I didn't feel particularly inclined to shop and I do have slight regrets about that now, but at the time I just wanted to see the city and explore during my limited time there. But obviously Sephora had to happen. And I have a general rule - I don't buy things that are available at home. The exchange rate is terrible at the moment anyway, so it's not like I'd be getting a better deal stocking up on my Urban Decay Naked Concealer!

Reflecting on 2016


They say that New Year is a good time to reflect on the year that has passed and get refreshed, motivated and energised for the year ahead. I'm not one for making grand resolutions that I've not got a hope in hell of keeping, but I do like to set myself (realistic) goals and take a moment to think back on what the past 12 months have brought me.
