Crazy Cat Lady Studios
I don't want to sound paranoid but I'm starting to think that Katie & Phil's business model might be focused with me as the example client in mind. First, they open a craft shop within two blo...

There's no shortage of coffee shops here in Morningside but I'm always on the hunt for new places to work from, so I was super excited to see August 21 had opened a new cafe. We headed along for b...

Edinburgh Zoo
We were invited along to Edinburgh Zoo for a visit today and I was really exciting because I haven't been in years, probably since I was on a school trip in Primary School. Our first stop was the ...
