The Scottish Blogger Shop - Save The Date!

Scottish Blogger Shop

I'm super excited to announce that at in a couple of weeks time, myself and eight other Scottish Bloggers will be holding the first ever Scottish Blogger Shop! If you love a bargain and fancy shopping some of our wardrobes (or just wanna come hang and say hello) then on Sunday 21st August you can come down to Hillhead Book Club and do just that.

She bangs with #BLOW Shawlands

Manic Panic hair dye

It wasn't gonna be long before I started missing having a fringe! Or 'bangs' as all the cool kids call them. I get awfully bored when my hair stays the same way for too long, so having a fringe cut in tends to distract me from taking any length off the ends. I'm trying to grow my hair at the moment (and maybe even considering extensions) cause as I get older, I feel like my hair takes even longer to grow. I'd love to hear your opinions and experiences with hair extensions. I'm off to Singapore and Vietnam for two weeks in September, so will probably wait until I get back to look into them properly, as I know it's gonna be ridiculously warm and muggy over there, and my hair will be getting tied up into a birds nest on the top of my head most days.

The long lasting makeup must haves

Wedding Makeup

Another weekend, another wedding! Tis the season and all that though, eh? Pete and I spent last Friday to Sunday at Carberry Tower out in the countryside near Mussleburgh to celebrate his cousin Louise's wedding. This time rather than getting super emotional blog post wise (sorry not sorry for that last one) I thought I'd try to be semi useful and share some tips for long lasting makeup, for a long day such as a wedding. My pores are feeling really clogged at the moment, just with months of working like mad and sort of (to be honest, COMPLETELY) neglecting my usual skincare regime. You can see it pretty badly on my nose in this picture, but I know it's down to my skin at the moment rather than the makeup I'm using. It gave me a kick up the backside after seeing this photo (my new Canon M3 is lovely but rather unforgiving) so I started a new skincare routine last Monday which I shall share on here soon. Pore-y noses aside, here are my long lasting makeup must haves.
