Christmas Sparkle

  Christmas is the perfect excuse for all things sparkly, right?
This party season I'll be wearing bling jewellery (layered up and unapologetic, most likely during the day, and over a cosy knit), fluttering my eyelashes to reveal black, glittery eyelids (unexpected but fabulous for the office Christmas lunch) and carrying glitzy clutch bags (sure to outdo any disco ball) for dancing with the girls.
 The most important thing to remember when doing sparkle? Don't wear it all at once. 

Clutch: Anya Hindmarch Valorie at The Outnet (sold out in silver but available in purple and copper)
Necklace: Mikey London (mine is ten years old but similar in the current collection)
Drink: Classic G&T*

*Drink responsibly, kids - and remember that the Scottish limit has been lowered (don't drink and drive).

Elisabeth May


 Yesterday I paid a visit to a gorgeous boutique in St Andrews called Elisabeth May. Established in 2010, the boutique is named after the Grannies (Elizabeth and May) of founder, Natalie Kerr. Natalie has almost 15 years experience in retail management and visual merchandising and, after discovering a gap in the St Andrews market for 'covetable buys' and 'something not everyone has', decided to set up shop.

Beauty Busters: Fake Bake 5 Minute Mousse

 You guys know about my Daydreamer brunches which took place in Glasgow and Edinburgh, which were basically an opportunity to spoil some bloggers and get to know them and their blogs a bit better. The events were in association with Debenhams who, as always, provided ace cakes goody bags for the guests. As a Fake Bake fan, I was delighted to discover that the mega-brand's latest tanning product was inside our goody bags.

So, I thought it would be a good product to review, especially at this time of year when there is so much going on - with all the lunches, parties, drinks and dinners at this time of year, we all want to look our very best and, for many, that includes a bit of healthy colour despite the ghastly weather! Enter, Fake Bake!

Yesterday, I hosted the second Daydreamer Brunch of the year! After the success of the gorgeous brunch in Glasgow, the teams at Town House Collection and Debenhams approached me about holding a brunch in Edinburgh, this time at The Bonham hotel. How could l refuse?
