If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I took part in Little Paper Swan’s #autumnhashtagchallenge. I really liked having a bit more of a direction to follow with my photos, and it was equally lovely to see how other people interpreted the theme. As a new hashtag – with people taking part each day – it also meant that I could find the same people each day. I find that Instagram can move so fast sometimes, so although I comment on people’s images and like – it’s usually only the ones at the top of my feed.… View Post

Have you heard of the Pantone Colour Institute?  Every season they evaluate the colours shown by fashion designers in their collections at New York Fashion week, and then use this to create a colour report for the upcoming season. For the first time ever, they even added in a London Fashion Week report too. I had to wonder where Edinburgh would be in comparison to these palettes – I know for sure I’ve been seeing a lot of mustard around.

There is no denying that dark evenings are closing in fast and with that, motivation for outside exercise is waning. The idea of going for a run in the cold and dark just doesn’t appeal.

Any time I’m planning decorating a new room, or have a new project in mind – Pinterest is my go to place. For everything from home design to potential haircuts, I just find it so inspiring and can easily lose a few hours pinning images. I thought I’d share a few of my favourite… Still in love with dungarees. This Halloween nail design. Low budget bathroom updates. Cute toddler hair cuts. You can find me on Pinterest, if you’d like to follow… View Post

We’ll talk about my love for Pinterest tomorrow but to an extent – I think it needs to step aside when it comes to interior design. It used to be my go-to place to ‘pinspiration’ and I would happily create mood boards for rooms until the cows came home. But all too often, I was seeing the same thing again and again. All too often, that pretty image didn’t actually lead to a site with relevant details. It promised pumpkin spiced latte and produced lukewarm herbal tea. However, my mood boards are back to life thanks to Instagram and the… View Post
