I’ve never been to Livingston before, nor heard much about it, but when the lovely Michelle from Michelle Brown PR told me about an upcoming event I couldn’t resist checking it out.

All About the Accessories

style-blogger-10Anyone that knows me or my blog knows how much I love championing Scottish fashion brands. As much as I can, I try to wear something every day from a Scotland-based designer, and when its not possible with my clothes, thats where accessories  come in. I decided to do an outfit photoshoot with my flatmate, friend and talented photographer Skye Lyon to showcase some accessories from the new collections of some great Scottish brands; Iolla, Araminta Campbell and Silk Purse Sow’s Ear.

They have a strong ethos that I really connect with, ensuring the products they sell are ethically made and traded, and their own brand range is 100% handmade by skilled artisan communities from around the world.

Back in March my lovely mum and I were invited by Fort Kinnaird, a shopping complex in Edinburgh, to enjoy some treats to celebrate Mother’s day, including afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie and some pampering at The Body Shop.

Why I’m Dropping Beauty from the Blog

  Girl in Black Dress
Last week I met up with Ann Martin from celebrated Scottish fashion blog Style Stamps for a little street style shoot, as I wanted to show off my new items from Glasgow designer fashion brand Birds of Prayers, a hugely oversized black smock dress with deep pockets and a flouncy skirt, and a giant jersey tote bag with enough room in it for the kitchen sink.
While chatting about the current state of blogging with Ann over a cappuccino at Round Square coffee house,  we touched upon the  issue of over-saturation of beauty bloggers right now, and how neither of us really prioritised writing about hair and make-up.
