Great Lengths and the little details

Lifestyle Blogger Scotland

Sometimes its the biggest of things and sometimes it's the littlest of things which put a smile on your face and a spring in your step. You guys know I'm not exactly groundbreaking when it comes to fashion, I like what I wear and I wear what I like. It's nice to be comfy but also feel confident and take joy in the things which make you feel good about yourself. In today's post I think I'm wearing the most day to day 'me' outfit I'll ever wear. Boring? Maybe. Content and confident? Hell yes.

Modern Calligraphy for beginners

Modern Calligraphy

Despite being the arty type in my day to day working life, I very rarely get to do anything creative these days just for myself. I'd really like that to change this year, and would love to get a few little projects on the go once I finish up on this BBC job in July. After some crafty bridesmaids duties for my besties wedding last year, I fell in love with that currently oh so popular calligraphy style font - and despite using variations of it lovingly on Photoshop and Illustrator, I'd been dying to learn how to execute this timeless craft by hand. So I bought myself and Heather a voucher for the Brahmin Lettering Co workshop and we went along to a class the day I stepped off the plane from NYC back in February.

The Daily Face: Cruelty Free Edition

Girls with glasses

Happy Tuesday darlings! It's been a wee bit longer than I'd hoped since my last blog post, but island life up in Shetland is treating me well and we are halfway through the shoot now. Only 10 more days and I'll be reunited with my furbabies and Pete. The anxiety has been rearing its ugly head a tad more than usual, but I'm lucky to be surrounded by a great team on this job who have been looking out for me and we've been having a really nice time together. Exploring all over Shetland (it is insanely beautiful, with scenery and white beaches to take your breath away) along with eating/drinking our body weight in seafood and Shetland Reel Gin. We've got this weekend off, so I'm hoping to take a wildlife boat trip on Saturday to spy a closer look at Puffins, Seals and Otters, and then Sunday I've got another horse riding trek booked. You can follow my adventures over on Instagram (click here) and I'm thinking of doing a travel post about Shetland once I'm home. It really is an absolutely stunning place! Anyways, it recently dawned on me that although I mention cruelty free makeup all the time on here, I've never done a full 'daily face' type post. So, here's a rundown of my absolute favourite cruelty free brands which I use on my face every single day.
