The Struggle of being a First Time Buyer


This post is more of a rant..

I'm so fed up at looking at homes. Calum and I have been looking for a house for about a year now and we still can't find anything suitable enough.

I know the biggest problem in our house hunt is that we don't want a flat, we want a house. A lot of people say we should just get a flat to get on the market, but why should we? Getting a flat in Edinburgh is bad enough as it is, plus we both have cars so it just wouldn't suit. We are keen to move away from Edinburgh to East or Midlothian - surrounded by the countryside or near beaches.

My Smear Test Experience


Smear tests. They don't sound nice, but it will save your life.

In Scotland, the age to start getting these tests was 20 years old. They have now upped the age in 2016 to 25 to be in line with England and Wales. In my opinion, this is like the NHS playing Russian roulette with women's lives.

Inspirational Women


I feel like in the last couple years us women have really been sticking together, whether it's celebrities standing up for women rights or us blogger girls helping each other out - I see it more and more each day! This is such a far cry from ten years ago when I was a teenager and girls were pretty mean (they maybe still are but I don't see it). Our voices have never been as loud as they are now.

Date Night Ideas


With Valentine's day slowly looming upon us again, what's not to love when you're spoiling your partner and being spoiled back?

Date nights isn't only for Valentine's day, nor is it for new couples or the young. You can be with your partner for fifty years and still have a date night weekly! To me, it keeps a relationship fresh and keeps it healthy.

I thought I would let you know what my favourite kind of date nights are!

La Roche Posay Effaclar Mat Moisturiser Review


I've suffered from oily skin and acne for about 14 years. I have tried literally everything to try and clear my skin - medication from doctors, microdermabrasion, herbal remedies, lots of different lotions and potions.. Some had worked but for a very short time and some didn't work at all! I've probably spent well over a thousand pounds trying to find a solution.

Then I found this.

Clothing Wishlist - January 2017

Hello 2017


Another year done and dusted! I feel like 2016 has flown by, I don't feel like I achieved a lot last year bar completing my college course, but I have a lot obnoxious my agenda this year.

Calum and I started our New Year by being part of Edinburgh's Hogmanay Street Party. The atmosphere was great, it as pretty mild weather wise too! We watched a selection of bands who were awesome but everyone was waiting for Paolo Nutini who was the best! We were there for a couple hours before the bells went to fireworks went off every hour until midnight, were a beautiful firework and laser display lit up the sky. We left after the display was finished and walked about half the way back to my house which was quite cool as Calum hates going for walks - we had a good laugh walking home.
