Dinner & Record Club
I had the first call with the editor of our book this morning and it left me inspired to start plotting out our next road-trip later this year. I've pinned so many new places we want to eat, sleep ...
Our Food Is Alive
It's Monday, so I decided to write out my to-do list for all the things I have to do this week. It was very long but there are lots of fun things on it! We went for dinner at YummyTori again tonig...
Raining Cats & Dogs

We've been meaning to try out the new Tony Macaroni in Morningside since it had opened a couple of months ago and after spotting this sign today, we finally decided to go in. The vegetarian select...
As Seen On TV
Cut Out + Keep was mentioned on the TV show Super Scrimpers on Channel 4 yesterday. It's so exciting to be able to say "As Seen On TV"!
Doll Parts
My new Crosley record player arrived this morning and we were so excited to give it a spin. It's so compact and easy to carry around in it's suitcase and I love the colour. We had so much fun ...

Photography Apps I Love

Siri Chat
We continued our new Sunday tradition of lunch at Loch Fyne on the shore today with my parents and Nana. This time I tried the mussels, which were delicious and left me feeling so full.
Record Store Day
Tom and I went to Two Thin Laddies for lunch this afternoon and it was such a nice cafe with friendly staff. It reminded me of somewhere in Omaha. I had the mushroom quiche which came with a reall...
Steampunk Eyepatch
I was busy crafting to the stars today for La Carmina. She asked for something pirate themed that she could wear on an upcomming travel show, so I decided to make a bejewelled light-up eyepatch. I ...

We found our collection of hotel key cards from our American road-trip. There were so many of them but there's going to be many more after we go back later this year. Mum & Dad came over this...
Urban Angel
Tom took me to see The Host this afternoon. I read the book last year but saw the film had scored 10% on Rotten Tomatoes, so I was worried about how bad it would be. It wasn't that bad actually.
Cartoon Heroes
We just discovered that you can watch our Google video in 3D and I'm such a comic book nerd, I think that's way cooler than it probably is.
Hopping Along The Street
I ordered some new shoes and a squirrel sweater from ASOS and they arrived today. I felt like I should hop along the street in them. We've had an amazing response to our Google video since it lau...

We went to see Springbreakers at the Cameo today. It was a strange film but I kind of want my own pink balaclava with a unicorn on it too. Afterwards we went for dinner at Prezzo on the bridges. I...
Mini Maker Faire
It was the first ever Mini Maker Faire in Edinburgh today, so we headed along to Summerhall to check it out. It was very very busy with small children everywhere, which made it quite difficult to ...
10,000 Emails
I sent my 10,000th email with Chase-Up today. It's been less than four months since Tom first built it for me and though I'm sending ten times as many emails, I've never been more organized and I'm...
We went for breakfast at The Souther with my parents this morning. I tucked in to their mushroom omelette which was tasty but a little overpowered by goats cheese and a Bloody Mary. Afterwards we ...
