New Edinburgh Bobbi Brown Flagship Store and Salon

This time last week I attended one of the best blogger events I’ve been to this year (my favourites have got to be the Deliveroo 1st Birthday Party,  Hunted Vintage SS16 launch and the Barburrito Burrito Masterclass!), the launch party for the brand new Edinburgh flagship Bobbi Brown store on George Street. I was really excited to attend as I’ve always really loved Bobbi Brown make-up and skincare products, not only for their foolproof contents but for the stunning packaging. The store itself is decorated and styled to complete brand perfection, and on the night the room was filled with giant balloons and streamers, as well as a female DJ, Prosecco, canapés, goodie bags and even a Haig Club whisky bar, whats not to love?

Shopping Heaven at Edinburgh’s Godiva Boutique

Last week I was thrilled to be invited in for a special exploration of one of my favourite boutiques in Edinburgh, Godiva, which is located just beyond the Grassmarket, surrounded by amazing bars and restaurants (my faves include Lovecrumbs and Dragonfly), vintage shops galore (Armstrong’s is a must-see) and of course the unforgettable Edinburgh Castle view! For any tourists here for the Edinburgh Festival this summer, or if you’re a resident and just fancy some shopping, Godiva should be number one on your to-do list, if you love supporting independent designers, chatting to the loveliest staff in the city, and admiring the beautiful visual merchandising amongst handmade, bespoke and vintage fashion.

Anthropologie: The High Street’s Unsung Hero

One semester at university I was assigned to write a couple of reports on a fashion retailer of my choice, so naturally I opted for one of my favourite shops on the high street.Anthropologie is utterly unique in my eyes, offering a diverse assortment of women’s fashion, accessories and home décor which exhibits global influences from independent designers, so I wanted to share with you guys my Report on Anthropologie Edinburgh and my Report on Anthropologie as a company for anyone interested in the world of fashion retail. 

Pictured is me in my favourite embroidered crop top, which is now on sale!

Edinburgh and Glasgow Summer Pop-Up Shops

August is an absolutely CRAZY month in Edinburgh, with more festivals then you can count, and such a huge choice of events and activities that its almost impossible to choose. This year is my first year not flying for various comedy shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and it feels so good to not be stuck on the Royal Mile all day! So far I’ve only been to a couple of shows, the best by far were the fantastic Loud Poets (see details here!), but my highlight of the month so far is discovering all the wonderful little pop-up shops, such as Don’t Look Lingerie, Urban Reivers, Popping Up in Stockbridge and the Craft Scotland Summer Show. Whats more, venturing up to Glasgow, at the end of this month cult Scottish fashion brand Isolated Heroes is showcasing their new collection using a pop-up blogger event and mini-shop. Read on to find out more about these great local initiatives!

Where To Go Vintage Shopping In Belfast

Last weekend I hopped over to Belfast, Northern Ireland, for a long weekend staying with a friend who works across there. I really enjoyed seeing the sights (a highlight was City Halls lit up with rainbow colours for Gay Pride!), exploring the bustling nightlife scene, and even going to a music festival for the day, Sunflower Fest!  But most of all, I adored the cluster of unique vintage shops. From rare retro finds like 80’s high tops and sports jackets, to classic vintage accessories and libraries full of second hand books, Belfast really had it all. My friend and I spent a good few hours browsing various stores, and of course came home with a few pieces, so I decided to compile a list of our top three favourites here, in no particular order, for anyone visiting Belfast who loves a good rummage around in rails of gorgeous one-off clothing.
