Celebrating Bosley’s First Year!

Bosley's First Year

This weekend is a special one because it marks Bosley’s first year of living with us (AKA his ‘gotcha day’)! It’s hard for me to believe that this time last year we were bringing him home because it kind of feels like he’s always been here.

I was looking through pictures of Bosley earlier and can’t believe how tiny he used to be! I used to be able to scoop him up in one hand and he was able to climb inside my handbags and hide. These days, it’s quite a different story. But he is still as curious as ever and he still tries to climb inside things, even if his big butt hangs out the back! Bosley also has an incredible RKF (resting kit face!) as, despite his grumpy expression, he is very affectionate and friendly. We even joke that he is part dog!

Bosley's First Year

A little while back, I wrote about how having a kitten has been a big learning curve in our house, and I’m still learning new things about Bosley as he gets bigger. Like how much he loves our daily routines (no matter how small they might be!) and how intuitive he is. Also, he makes us laugh constantly – the other day he reacted to a particularly dramatic part of a corny film and it (further) convinced me that he understands English purrfectly…

Earlier this week was International Cat Day which meant that, as well as my feed being filled with even more cute felines than usual, I had yet another excuse to post a picture and celebrate Bosley’s first year on Twitter and Instagram! The gang at RSPCA have even included him in their #MoreThanCat online gallery of kitties – you can check it out here.

Bosley's First Year

It’s amazing how quickly a little animal can become such a big part of your life and, in a short year, Bosley has become a major part of ours. I can’t wait to see what the next twelve months (and all the months and years after that!) bring.

Tell me all about your furry friends! Do you celebrate any pet birthdays/ anniversaries too?

 

My Month in Pictures: April 2017

I’m back, baby! This is my first blog post as Lynsay Loves and it feels GOOOOD, you guys. I thought I would start things off with a little visual round up of what my last month has looked like – I’m always snapping photos when I’m out and about, playing with my iPhone, Instagramming  (of course!) and trying improve my photography skills.

Some of these pictures are personal, some are just for fun and some are snippets from places I’ve been to lately. Enjoy!

Benefit Cosmetics opened their all-pink pop-up charity shop in Glasgow as part of their #raiseabrow campaign this month and so many people turned up to donate, buy and help empower women. Did you scoop any bargains?

I was featured on the Tatty Devine blog this month, hop on over and find me sharing some of my favourite pieces from my jewellery collection!

Pausing for a quick shoefie with Gary (with a floor like THAT, it’d be rude not to!)…

We stopped by the new Paesano restaurant launch on Great Western Road. The pizza was delicious but it was their dessert menu that stole my heart – simple, classic ice cream dishes with super cute branding!

I was beyond flattered that the uber-talented Folklorique recreated my Minnie Mouse look from last year’s Disney trip in one of her illustrations! I think she’s nailed it, don’t you?

Don’t let that grumpy face fool you – Bosley is a very affectionate little guy. We dropped him off at his brother’s yesterday where he’ll be staying for a few weeks. I miss him already!

Here’s looking at you, April 2017! I hope you’ve had an awesome month, and I really hope you like the blog makeover! Let me know what you think in the comments below or over on Twitter…

Friday Hi-Fives: A FrockDrop, a Pop-Up and a Party in a Shop!

FrockDrop

It will probably come as absolutely no surprise to you guys that Friday is my favourite day of the week! There’s something about reflecting on the week gone by and the promise of the weekend that makes me bounce out of bed a little easier, how about you?

Since we last caught up, I’ve been getting ready for a weekend away with Lori and Ayden (we leave next Friday and I can’t wait!), getting my eyebrows waxed in the back of a Barbie-pink jeep (true story!) thanks to the gals at Benefit and having a bao bun bonanza at Mamafubu.

Last night I was through in Edinburgh celebrating Godiva Boutique’s Spring launch party. Colourful dresses by the likes of Rowanjoy and a treasure trove of original vintage kept me swooning all night. Godiva have always been one of my must-visit spots whenever I hit up the capital, and last night was proof that the store is still at the top of their game.

And now to share some events happening in Glasgow this weekend that I think you’re going to love! First up, we have the Buchanan Galleries #FrockDrop station, which has been set up in support of Marie Curie. From now until the 19th of March, the FrockDrop will be gratefully accepting donations of pre-loved clothes, which will then be sold on in Marie Curie’s many charity shops to help those living with terminal illness.

You can find the FrockDrop across from John Lewis on the ground floor of the centre, and Buchanan Galleries are rewarding those who donate with a £5 gift card and money off vouchers. It’s a fantastic cause, and a good excuse to have that wardrobe clearout you’ve been putting off, right?

Meanwhile down at Central Chambers tomorrow, Peaches Wax Bar have organised a very special pop-up at Swoon Nails, and a little birdie tells me there are still a couple of brow appointments that have not been snapped up yet! Head over to Swoon Nails on Instagram to find out more about this awesome ladyboss collaboration.

Before I head into the weekend, I have just a few more hi-fives to share…

This week, I’m hi-fiving because…

…I tried Earl Grey chocolate from Mary’s Milk Bar and now think it needs to be a regular staple in my diet. Delicious!

…our bathroom renovation has started and I get to say things like “the antique brass towel holder just got delivered”. When did I become this grown up?! Send help!

…Wednesday’s worldwide celebrations for International Women’s Day 2017 were a true source of inspiration on my feed

…we recorded a drag-tacular episode of the podcast, where you’ll find us talking about all things relating to RuPaul’s Drag Race (or as much as you can squeeze into 40-ish minutes anyway)

…Queen Michelle is starting an arts and crafts movement in the most stylish way imaginable. My favourite outfit post of the week!

And with that, I’m off to make some broccoli slaw and finalise the frocks I’ll be dropping off at Buchanan Galleries tomorrow! Have an awesome few days and I’ll see you next week.

Love,

Signature
