Friday Hi-Fives: Birthday Fun, Blogger Shop & Bosley!

Blogger shop

Happy Friday, you gorgeous creature! The last time we were hi-fiving, it was the evening before I was due to go and pick up our little kitten and to say I was excited is a slight understatement! SO…he’s home, his name is Bosley (or #exoticbosley if you fancy some Insta-stalking) and he is settling in just nicely. You can expect to see more of him around here, but in the meantime let me fill you in on what else has been going on…

Last week it was my birthday and I gave myself permission to take a few days off and R-E-L-A-X because if you can’t do your own thing on your birthday, when can you? I got utterly spoiled with some gorgeous gifts and time with friends and family – I’m feeling like a very lucky girl indeed.

After going out on Thursday AND Friday night, I decided that I needed some TLC, so on Saturday I arranged to go and get my first ever lash lift by Melissa AKA The Beauty Business at Pixie Hair & Beauty (the same salon I went to for some awesome makeup earlier this year!). I’ll be giving you guys more details on what was involved and how it went really soon, I promise! Afterwards I headed to Three Little Birds Spa on Great Western Road for a deluxe (and uber-sparkly) pedicure before heading back home.

On Sunday we held our first ever Scottish Blogger Shop at Hillhead Bookclub, which was a LOT of fun! We were really grateful that so many of you decided to come down and hang out with us for the day, and it was amazing to meet so many lovely new people. Here’s to the next one, eh?

This week, I went along to the House Of Fraser AW16 press dinner and got to know their new in-house lifestyle brand, Maison de Nimes. With a really relaxed, Californian vibe and some cute palm leaf patterned dresses, I’d say that the label is going to be a big hit! The next night, it was time for some more birthday celebrations, so to get in the mood I visited the all-new MAC counter at House Of Fraser and had my makeup done by one of the MUA’s. I loved my vintage-inspired look and headed out for dinner with Lori, Laura and Ayden feeling like a shiny new penny.

I’m ready for the weekend, how about you?

This week, I’m hi-fiving because…

…I checked out the new Taste Buchanan street food hub at Buchanan Galleries and my tastebuds were VERY grateful! With a range of savoury and sweet options under one roof, the hardest part was picking what to eat first!

…this weekend ISOLATED HEROES have brought the glitz and glamour of Vegas to an exclusive two-day pop-up over at Southblock. I’ll be heading down over the weekend to get my sequin fix, see you there?

…did you know that you can drink beer and change the world for the better? Check out the work that Brewgooder are doing and prepare to be impressed! I don’t drink beer myself but I couldn’t help but feel inspired by this one.

…if you’re in town tomorrow and love a bit of vintage fashion, my beautiful friend Casci will be sharing her (vast!) knowledge of 1940s Glaswegian style over at Tenement House as part of their WWII weekend activities.

…and if you’re in Edinburgh, this is your last chance to visit Urban Reivers’ pop-up in George Street and shop the fabulous local talent they are showcasing.

Well, I plan to make the very most of the next three days with Gary and Bosley so I hope you have a magical long weekend and I’ll see you next week!
