Mother’s Day at Fort Kinnaird

mum-coffee

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. We had a wonderful time (I mean I always have a wonderful time with Mumma MacGilp because she rocks) and took some lovely pictures so I thought I’ve give you guys an insight into what we got up to. Read on to find out more about Patisserie Valerie and the Body Shop at Fort Kinnaird.

A Blogger’s Guide to Pinterest

girl-with-laptop
 

Recently I became super frustrated with not getting anywhere near the response I would like from my Pinterest. Lots of bloggers I know herald the virtual moodboard social site for driving huge amounts of traffic and making incredible connections and collaborations, but I never found that kind of joy.

So I decided to delete it all and start again. And after following some advice from fellow Edinburgh Blogger The Sustainable Edit (Using Pinterest to Grow your Blog: Part One and Part Two and Part Three), following loads of new pinners and finding way more enjoyment in scrolling through my feed and discovering creative inspiration.

Read on for an insight into my new lil baby Pinterest and how its slowly growing.

If we were having coffee…

If we were having coffee, what would I tell you? Humour me as I download over a chai latte. Or a dark, rich mocha from one of my favourite Edinburgh coffee shops, Lovecrumbs. Thank you to Scottish blogger Eleanor Duffy for tagging me in this get-to-know-me post. And for anyone who’s reading this, you’re tagged too! It has been a while since I’ve written a more personal post on Urbanity, and I thought I’d inject a bit more of my lifestyle into the sea of fashion. I’m so humbled to have a growing number of readers, so hello to the newbies, and here’s a little bit about me.

24 Vegan Hours in Edinburgh


 *guest post*

Is it easy to be vegan in Edinburgh? Heck yes!
Hi – I’m Emma, and you may know me from the website veganedinburgh.com. I’ve been vegan for about a year and a half now and for around six months of that time I have been singing the praises of the vegan foodie scene in Edinburgh. I’ve made it my life’s mission to eat my way around all the best cruelty-free food in the city and share my mouth-watering discoveries with visitors and locals alike.

Odeon Fort Kinnaird: Lego Batman Movie

 

Last night Jack and I were big kids for a few hours as we settled in to watch The Lego Batman Movie with a big bucket of pick n mix sweeties. We were the only adults in the cinema without kids, but it was great. If you like superheroes, big celebrity voice actors, comedy, catchy songs, and most importantly lego, then I would 100% recommend this film, and Odeon Fort Kinnaird in Edinburgh is the place to see it, with huge screens, super comfortable seats and spot-on service. Big thank you to Hummingbird Communications for this fun date night!
