Hello my loves,
I feel like its taken me a wee while to get this first post of the year out of my head. But here I am, finaaally sitting down to type it up.
I’m super excited for everything 2019 has to come. I’m currently having a major clear out to help with packing up my flat as the end of next month is my big move back to ABERDEEN.
My return to Aberdeen has been a long time coming. Aberdeen has always felt like home to me. Even in my 3 years living in Glasgow, every weekend trip to Aberdeen brought with it a comforting familiarness and each return to Glasgow was met with a uneasy sense of regret.
So with 2019 comes a new set of goals

So 2018 is quickly coming to an end and I thought why not take a quick look back at what great year its been!
As you could easily tell by looking at my Spotify Top 100 songs of 2018 I was dumped. This is made clear by heavily featuring songs such as “No Scrubs” and “Ain’t yo Mamma”
Minus that but also totally including it as well 2018 has been suuuuuch a fab year.
Probably the best I’ve had in such a long time.
I finally feel as though I’m getting somewhere in life and everything is coming together perfectly after a long time of feeling lost.
Career-wise, Blog-wise and Personal Life-wise everything seems to be getting better…

So I’ve decided to put together a quick blog post on my current favourite bits and bobs for around your home. This is inspired by the fact that yesterday (Haha when I initially started this post *cough* September) I started my first steps towards becoming a home owner. Super super exciting!! I went into my first meeting with a mortgage advisor just to get an idea of where I’m at now, how far I need to get to get on the property ladder, and how much of a mortgage loan is possible for me.
I went into this meeting with zero expectations and I left on an absolute high. I had been looking at flats at the lower end of my mortgage range thinking that had been my highest range. So to know I can afford a much better flat/house is just fab!! Also on a side note, if you live in Scotland like I do and you’re a first time buyer definitely look into setting up a Help to By ISA. This is a government scheme that you can use to save your 5% deposit and when you go to buy the government will contribute a percentage (up to £12,000 + £3,000 from the gov).
Every little helps!

Welcome to the second instalment of Single in the City and this has to be one of the quickest most dull dates I’ve had in my life…and that is saying something
Let me set the scene; I’ve had a super long week at work, it’s a cold Thursday night in October and I’m actually coming home to put my face on and head out to meet a guy for drinks…. on a school night too! This is not the one, I love nothing more than a cosy night in.
I had been WhatsApping this guy for a while. Everything seemed pretty perfect, a year older than me, a farm boy, really polite and seeming a genuinely good guy.

Hopefully this will also be some you can add to your list of go to blogs for updates…
The top spot has got to go to my current favourite and one that I only discovered this year. This chick is honestly my online guru, go to gal for outfit goals, relationship giggles/advice and just all round inspo…
The Brighton Girl
Honestly, go check her out! Tinder Diaries is a must read, especially if you’re currently in the same situation as me and being new to the dating scene again. So relatable.

This is a small corner of my blog where I can vent about the trials and tribulations of being Single In the City!!
Sooo I’ve been single for over half a year and I’m not going to lie, I bloody love it! But that being said I’ve still attempted put myself out there enough to experience the awkwardness of first dates again… (Let the ground eat me)
This time round I’m being picky AF. Mainly because I deserve to be. And I wont settle for less than I deserve!
I learnt a lot in the last few years of what I should and shouldn’t put up with.
I’m also not 100% sure of what I’m looking for in a guy but, basically someone on my level who can have a laugh – surely not too hard to find. Wrong.
So to vent on the weird dates of this year (and let me tell you I’ve had a few) I’m going to go back to one I had in about April time…
