| 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.

| Lifestyle | Holiday Accessories Edit

Hello again my loves,

 

You probably wont know but I’ve got a holiday coming up the first week in October! It cannot come soon enough, I’m soooo ready for days by the pool, in the sun with my book annd busier days touring about and taking in the city’s culture, this and a wine tour. All about getting a taste of the culture too…

 

SO I have been doing plenty of holiday shopping in preparation for this. I’ve still got a long way to go, who knew putting together a holiday wardrobe would be such a time consuming stress??! Anyways that being said I have put together  my ultimate favourite holiday accessories that I have come across on my searching so far…

| Lifestyle | Drive In Movies ~ Harry Potter

Okay so this is a super exciting post! If you are looking for something fun/ different to do I suggest you keep reading to hear about my trip to the Glencoe Mountains for a Drive In Movie…

 

Harry Potter And The Philosophers Stone

 

So a couple of weekends ago my friend and I road-tripped up to the mountains to experience our first (but now deffo not last) drive-in movie! As she lives in Edinburgh and I stay in Glasgow it made sense for her to drive through on Friday night and stay with me so we could set off bright and early on our journey.

| Blogmas | Glasgow Christmas Markets

Yaay finally Ciaran and I had a Saturday off together with zero plans soooo its CHRISTMAS MARKET TIMEEE!!! How Exciting!

Every morning en route to work I’ve had to walk through/past the St Enoch Christmas Market on my way to the subway. And every morning my thoughts have been how much longer until I can get in my full Christmas mood, wander about in cosy clothes drinking a Mulled Wine or a Spiced Plum Cider and taste all kinds of market food!

So yes, as its finally here, I am buzzing!

Here are some pictures of what we got up to last Saturday Night…

| Boozy Bits | Wine Cocktail

The first weekend in November my Other Half and I took a trip up to the North East of Scotland to visit his family.  It was a fun filled long weekend consisting of plenty walks, food and of course booze

While we were there my boyfriend put his cocktail making skills to the test. And he came up with a couple drinks to suit both mine and his aunties tastes.

His auntie is not much of a cocktail drinker as she only likes wine. But, this was just a fun little challenge for my partner as he rattled off a wine cocktail recipe he made up on the spot!

If you want a sneaky wee peek at what this contains and how to make, keep reading…

| Food | SixByNico ~ Illusion

My second foodie blog post. And this one, once again, is all about Six By Nico…

I know what you’re thinking, a bit of a reoccurring theme here, but honestly I cannot fault the place! It’s fine dining at such an affordable price. The atmosphere is perfect. The service is top class. And the work put behind each change in menu theme is ingenious.

This visit the theme is Illusion. Which as my boyfriends mum described, has a very Heston Blumenthal vibe to it.

For an extra £25 each we also added the wine flight which is perfectly matched to compliment each dish.

I’m not going to lie, I struggled to keep up! Which is why when the accompaniment to course 4/6 was a beer I happily passed this over to my other half!

| Travel | South Uist ~ Outer Hebrides…

My first piece in my travel collection. How exciting!! I thought I would start with one close to my heart. So where else, but my childhood home.

 

 

I was super fortunate to grow up in a beautiful, friendly, safe and small Island on the edge of Scotland, way up in the North West. It is not the easiest of places to get to, in fact you are probably cheaper to fly away somewhere nice and hot for the weekend than I am to fly back home. Heartbreaking.

I’m not being biased when I say this, but I honestly believe that if you are a fan of Scotland and all the natural beauty it contains a trip through the Western Isles is a must! I managed within the first year of being with my boyfriend to take him a tour of each island contained in the Western Isles bar one. But this will be rectified in next summers visit home!!
