| Lifestyle | Crazy for Copper

Hey hey beauties,

So it’s officially weekend number two back in Aberdeen and I’m slowly getting there with my wee flat. Its getting cosier by the day and I couldn’t be happier.

The only room I have completely finished and made my own is the kitchen. So I thought I would do a quick little post on ALL the copper pieces I’ve picked up to give the kitchen the Shonz effect.

| Lifestyle | Things You’ll Only Understand If You Grew Up On A Scottish Island

Hello beauties,

If you follow my blog I’m sure you’ll know by now that I grew up on a small Island in the Outer Hebrides. So I wanted to do a post that everyone who grew up in the Islands will relate to. Or if you didn’t you can get a wee glimpse into our life. Enjoy…

Hello lovelies,

 

So if you didn’t know already next month marks my new start back in Aberdeen. I’m super super excited and can’t wait to just move and get settled into my new place (which is the cutest flat ever). That being said I have so many things I’ll need to do once I move…

 

Find a New Hairdresser – this is a big thing. Who a girl trusts with her hair is important. I’ve had the same hairdresser for about 3 years now in Glasgow. I love our girly chats and I trust her completely with my hair. We’ve been through a lot together… from Ginger Shonz to Red head and also the just plain Brunette. I’m deffo going to miss her.

|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

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 Β£12,000 + Β£3,000 from the gov).

 

Every little helps!
