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!

A Day in the Life of a Busy Blogger

Inspired by Scottish Beauty Blogger Make Erin Over, I thought it’d be fun to do a ‘Day In The Life’ post, as I’ve been super busy lately and have fingers in a lot of pies. Plus if anyone out there is as nosy as me, you’ll love finding out what people online are like in real life. I currently study a full-time degree in Fashion Communication at Heriot Watt University at the Scottish Borders Campus, the school of textiles and design. I also manage fashion and textiles at The Scottish Design Exchange and do freelance social media and writing for various brands, magazines and websites. Hopefully this shows that the life of a fashion blogger (albeit not a full-time one) is not exactly glamorous, and takes a hell of a lot of upkeep! But anyway, here’s what my Monday looked like…

Isle of Skye Candle Company

I first heard of, or rather smelled, the Isle of Skye Candle Company when I was working at Limited Edition, Scotland Redesigned’s Edinburgh Christmas pop-up shop, where we sold hundreds of these bad boys. Founded and based in the picturesque Isle of Skye, the environmentally-focussed brand produces candles, diffusers and  more in countless delectable fragrances and beautiful designs. Skye Candles have grown from a one-man-band in a grass-roofed bothy to an omni-channel company with stores all across Scotland. Here I discovered a little more of their ethical practise and found some new products that fit beautifully in the home.

My Year in Blogging

Hello lovely readers. Its got to that stage in my blogging ‘career’ that I thought its about time I start blogging about blogging. It feels odd to be asked for advice on running a successful blog, as I still feel like a total small fry in the industry, but it was really helpful for me to get my thoughts down on paper about my little blog’s strengths and weaknesses, so I can see what I’ve achieved and know how to move forward this year.  (more…)
