Style with Soul at Bohemia

clothes-rail

Edinburgh fashion fans, have you ever been to Bohemia? If not, why not? Bohemia is a gorgeous little bohemian (as the name would suggest) boutique in Marchmont with a huge selection of clothing, accessories, jewellery, homeware, kidswear and gifts. 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.

Read on to find out more about Patisserie Valerie and the Body Shop at Fort Kinnaird.

Feroce comes out twice a month in print and digital, filled to the brim with editorial campaigns from the world’s most innovative fashion photographers, stylists, make up artists and models.

A Blogger’s Guide to Pinterest

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 Tartan Brunette (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.
