Argyll Escapes

I have just come back from a wonderful ‘staycation’ up in the north of Scotland (yes, nowhere near as exciting as last Summer’s adventures in New York and Norway, but stay with me!). 
 
Argyll is a beautiful area full of breathtaking lochs (thats Scottish lakes!), huge mountains, spooky forests and twee seaside villages, as well as so much history, culture and nature. It rained non-stop and the midges were out in full force, but we had a wonderful week.
 

My family and I have been here countless times, as its the original home of our Clan, but this was our first time by Loch Awe, in a Scandavian-style log cabin called Dalriada Lodge (which you can see on Air BnB here!)

Burrito Heaven at BarBurrito, Edinburgh

Last week I got a masterclass in making delicious fresh burritos at the new Mexican joint Bar Burrito on Lothian road, Edinburgh. I’ve always been fond of Mexican food and love making my own dishes, but have never attempted the holy grail, The Burrito, before! However, after that night, along with a great bunch of other Edinburgh Bloggers, I am confident in how to wrap the (nearly) perfect burrito, filled to the brim with rice, beans, veggies, salsa, guacamole and cheese!

Scottish Girl Bosses

I’ve been thinking a lot about my future career lately, so I thought I would compile a list of the talented, creative and utterly unstoppable businesswomen in Scotland that inspire and motivate me. 

First off we have Ellie Morag. Probably a favourite photographer within the Edinburgh and Glasgow fashion community, Ellie has photographed for Edinburgh Fashion Week, the ECA Fashion Show, Hunted Vintage, Deadsleekit, Kestin Hare, Scot Street Style. and so many more. And she’s probably one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. What’s not to love?

Summer Style Haul

Although my bank account would sourly disagree, I am a true believer in retail therapy. Whenever I’m feeling down, a sparkly new pair of shoes, a new party dress or some colourful lipsticks never fail to cheer me up. 

Of course, I realise that it is beyond a cliche for bloggers to do ‘hauls’ that rub their perky financial situations in their reader’s faces, and thats why I have never done one before, but believe me when I tell you I am broke. And that after today’s spontaneous shopping spree, I’m back on a strict budget to save for my new flat, an you know, so I can eat. Also, thanks to the Summer sales, I got a few bargains, including heavily discounted Topshop (I’m talking a bra for £1) and H&M goodies, and a gorgeous new vintage rucksack from Godiva Boutique


As Donna from Parks and Recreation would say, Treat. Yo. Self. 


Anyway, read on for my thoughts on some lovely new products!

How would Brexit affect Fashion?

UK

Its not often that my blog gets political, but as a young person with strong left-wing beliefs, I think its important to get engaged, and what better outlet than Urbanity? Don’t worry, I’m not going off on a rant, this is relevant to fashion, and very pertinent this week as Thursday we all vote on Britain’s future in the European Union. I wanted to explore how a ‘Leave’ vote would affect my own future, and that of the UK fashion industry, so was interested to read some articles on The Business Of Fashion about how Brexit might affect brands.
