| Beauty | January’s Empties

Hello my Beauties,

So time for my first empties post. I’ve never gotten round to doing one of these, mainly because once somethings empty its chucked away asap – I mean why keep it??

But I’ve decided for the purpose of this post I’l keep a few products after I’ve used them to let you lovely people know my thoughts and if I would re purchase.

So let’s get into it…

|Lifestyle | Hello 2019

Hello my loves,

 

Happy 2019!

 

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

| Lifestyle | Homeware Picks

Hello lovelies,

 

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!

| Lifestyle | Single In the City ~ The Dr Will See You Now

Hello beauties,

 

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.

Hello beauties,

 

Sooo boot season is officially here! And I’m all about keeping my feet cosy in this cold weather…

 

For that reason I’ve put together a collection of my current fave boots! Hopefully this can help you if you’re on the look out just as I am.

 

You can never have too many pairs…

| Travel | Isle of Lewis ~ Outer Hebrides

Who said you can’t be a tourist in your own stomping ground?

 

When I headed back home for my Summer holiday I decided I wanted to make the most of my time there. You really don’t appreciate home as much as once its too late and you need to adult and move away…

 

So apart from HEBCELT which I have a post on here, this is what I got up to in my travels around The Isle of Lewis.
