Styling Neck Scarves and Life Updates

Spring Has Sprung! Or has it?
It became inordinately warm here in Edinburgh in FEBRUARY. The winter itself has been incredibly mild. I don’t think it’s ever been colder than -3 celsius. Incredible, if you ask me, but my relationship with existentialism and global warming has taken a hit as a result. Separate but related thought: one thing I’ve started doing recently is trying to use accessories to change up my outfits. I have a bit of a capsule wardrobe since I moved with only one suitcase, and I try not to spend too much money on consumerism and fast fashion. Instead of buying tons of new clothes here, I’ve bought little accessories to try to fancy up outfits, and create more outfit options to create with what I own. Even when I moved, I brought with me not one, but two neck scarves. One suitcase, two neck scarves. I love them.

Spring Style | His & Hers

Today I’m working with a menswear company called Bonobos to put together some cute his and hers looks in honour of the Valentine season!

For the men’s looks, I’ve stuck strickly to Bonobo’s own brand, and for women’s, for some reason, I’ve really favoured Gap, with a few bits from Zara and Urban Outfitters….

Lifestyle | 5 Quick & Easy Healthy Breakfasts

Hi friends! How are you? Are you surviving school/exams? What have you been up to? Hope you’re well!

I don’t know about you, but breakfast foods are my all time fav foods. I hate getting up when it’s dark out (aka: early) as much as the next girl but one thing that motivates me to get out of bed is the thought of breakfast. When I’m falling asleep I think “Hmmm, what shall I have for breakfast tomorrow?” If I’ve had a bad day I come home and make waffles or crepes and load them on with chocolate, strawberries and bananas. I live for the typical brunch foods – crepes, croissants, fresh fruit, etc., so it can be hard for me to make the decision to have a healthy breakfast. I won’t do it unless it’s equally as yummy, so I’ve created a few of my own easy breakfast recipes that are bit healthier than those brunch staples….

Beauty | Spring Nail Polish

Aloha friends, it’s been awhile. Today I want to show you this super cute nail colour that I think is perfect for Spring 2016! I picked up this Formula X polish from Sephora last minute on my last order because it was on sale and I needed another $3 to qualify for free shipping (lol). Anyways, it has quickly become one of my favourite polishes and definitely the nail colour I’ll be reaching for most this Spring.
