Fujifilm sent us their new Instax Sharer, a printer that connects to your phone and prints polaroid photos on Instax film. It's even more awesome than I hoped it would be and I love the prints. I ...


Seaside Road-Trip
I'd made a promise to my Nana that if we ever got a car, we'd take her for fish & chips in Anstruther. The weather was lovely today, so we put the roof down on Fig, spun by Burntisland to pick ...


Davina & Ross were playing in Edinburgh tonight and invited us along to their gig at the Voodoo Rooms. It was an acoustic gig and a lot more intimate then the shows we'd seen them play in Londo...


I picked up some tricolor lasagna sheets when we were at 181 Delicatessen last week and couldn't wait to try them out. I've never made lasagna before because Tom told had told me he didn't like it...


Mademoiselle Macaron
We have an awesome new cafe called Mademoiselle Macaron in Edinburgh and being macaron lovers, we couldn't wait to check it out. The owner Rachel is super sweet (describing herself as a mix betwee...

It was Ben's birthday today so we surprised him with cake, beer and balloons this morning. We went for breakfast at Salt Cafe where I had their granola for breakfast again. We then headed in to t...


One of the best things we used to do when we lived in London was meet up with our friends every weekend for brunch and I felt all nostalgic as we took everyone for breakfast at Montpeliers this mor...


Ben, Dave & Mel in Edinburgh

Google's Botanical Bash
Tonight was Google's Botanical Bash and all we told was to show up to King's Stables Road where a fleet of colourful vehicles would be waiting to whisk us off to a secret location. I was excited t...


181 Delicatessen
We have a new deli in Bruntsfield called the 181 Delicatessen that I was excited to check out. They sell a small range of delicious products and interesting kitchen tools. I wish I could have boug...


We put some beetroot in our pasta dough and made bright pink ravioli for lunch today. It looked so pretty.


We were sad to leave Roulotte Retreat this morning but Tom had planned for us to stop off at Torness Nuclear Power Station on our drive back to Edinburgh. I wasn't sure what to expect from a visit...


Roulotte Retreat

It was time to head back home this morning and though there's so much to see in Skye that you could probably spend a whole week exploring, we felt we'd done a pretty good job in our two days.


After waking up early and tucking in the breakfast at our B&B, we were excited to get on the road and explore the rest of Skye. We spotted a highland cow with her calf alongside the road and s...
