Home Inspiration with BoConcept Glasgow*

Boconcept-furniture-stores-Glasgow

My very exciting news this month is that I have moved in with my boyfriend and we are officially now living in our new flat together! It’s so brilliant to finally leave behind the days of living with my parents, staying in shoddy university halls and sharing questionable student flats. Needless to say, a new home means I have my eye on some new interior decor, so I have been ogling over hundreds of gorgeous homeware products at the new BoConcept furniture stores in Glasgow, and Edinburgh. Read on to see my top picks from BoConcept for the bedroom, living room and kitchen!

I am still buzzing from last Sunday where Siam Colvine, Hope Miller and I spent the day at Graduate Fashion Week at the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, London. GFW is a showcase of the work of hundreds of fashion graduates from all over the UK, from womenswear and menswear to communication and marketing, with a vast exhibition space fille with portfolios, sketchbooks, samples and CVs on display for the industry to browse through, and a packed schedule of runway shows, career support, presentations, performances, awards, workshops and live talks.

Ultimate Summer Fashion Wishlist, Show Studio Internship

Urbanity Blog x A Couple of Photos

In just a couple of days, I am moving to London for 2 months for an editorial internship at Show Studio. I am so excited to work with such an innovative and exciting company, but I’m also nervous because, its high, and, well, what the hell am I going to wear! A (poor student) girl can dream…so what better than a wishlist? Here I’ve pulled together a collection of clothes, shoes and accessories ready for a Summer in London!

N.B. If you’re thinking – wait, I though Ruth had short ice blonde hair not long curly pink hair – this is an old photo from August 2016 by Jasmin Bauer from A Couple of Photos, it was the most summery blog photo I could find! I hope you enjoy this post!

Mermaids and Metallics

Mermaid-Dress7

Metallics are just one of those trends I absolutely adore. From shiny silver ankle boots to shimmering sequin skirts, I love rocking something super reflective and eye catching on a night out. While shopping at The Centre Livingston last month, I immediately fell for this unique mermaid mini dress on the Topshop sale rail, and decided to go matchy-matchy and pair it with my metallic cross body bag from Covet Edinburgh.
