Tonight Steven took me to The Monteiths, a Royal Mile restaurant and bar where he used to hang out with his friends while studying in Edinburgh. The weather was lovely and we both enjoyed our cocktails-Rosehip Gimlet for me and Charlie Chaplin for him-we ended up going at the #edfringe but more on this tomorrow!
Tonight I discovered a beautiful place to have drinks in Edinburgh, the Indigo Yard in 7 Charlotte Lane, another one of Steven's favourite bars. The music was live-which always gets my thumbs up-the drinks were in very affordable prices and the vibes were very positive.
We met the other night Kyle and Georgia, two of Steven's best friends, at Mamma's Pizzeria at the Grass Market. These two make one of my favourite couples for all the things they have achieved together and all the places they have travelled, they truly are made for each other!
First time I met them was at the NYE party they had at their flat but at that time I didn't have the courage to get my camera out and start shooting-something that I regret because it really was a fantastic party!!! Eight months later and I feel brave enough to snap their faces and post about our night on the blog. We were all a bit tired but so happy to see each other.
Life is all about love, good company and food, isn't it?
My love for flowers is well documented on Instagram , Twitter and the rest of my social media by posting loads of floral prints, flowers and garden views. However, I have never show you my gorgeous, floral laptop bag!
Isn't it the most beautiful and girly bag you have ever seen?
Also, it is spacious enough to fit all these things, my laptop and during cold days my scarf :)

Lately I have been working on my capsule wardrobe by wearing identical outfits daily.
The idea is that you get a small portion from your closet to make a sub-wardrobe of a limited number of pieces that you wear for a season. By this, you are going to save yourself money and time to get dressed every morning.
I chose to get dressed mainly with pieces that I feel comfortable in and one of them is this cashmere jumperthat I was kindly sent by Dunedin Cashmerethat is based in the lovely city of Edinburgh.
Do you know the saying "you get what you pay for", well this is exactly what happened in this case. This jumper is the perfect investment piece and it works greatly with any outfit I have tried it so far. It is soft, and it feels and looks so expensive as it is made of great quality material.
I cannot thank enough Dunedin Cashmere for sending me over this gorgeous piece for my capsule wardrobe. I am planning to do some outfit posts and show you more about this new wardrobe idea, so stay tuned!
My love for this city is never ending!
I am going down on Thursday to meet with my love and enjoy the last days of the Festival.
We managed to book some tickets for a couple of shows and also some friends are coming along, so I cant wait for Thursday to come :)
As a vegetarian (OK, once per month pescetarian but close enough, no?), I love veggies and anything that includes carbs. To give you an idea, I could live on sushi and pasta all day long and I promise no complains there :)
Scrolling through my phone I found these pictures of random dinners and lunches and no suprise here, my words about carbs and veggies are being confirmed. I tend to have salads for lunch and soups/roasted peppers/sushi/pasta for dinner (Steven finishes everything with a huge steak but that's another story).
To my dissapointment all food related events in Scotland so far were about meat, remember the Lamb Street Food I attened last year? Well, I did not have a single taste of the lamb and asked my friends to have a taste of everything and let me know how it was in order to blog about it.
Being a vegetarian is, thankfully, being accepted and no weird comments or side eyes are in the air anymore, however I would so much love to go to a VegFest for once...and my prays were heard as this year the first ever VegFest will be held in Glasgow!
So Scottish friends behold the 5th of December to taste some delicious dishes, meat-free this time ;)
I will be there so feel free to come and say hello, cant wait to meet you all!
How nice are these trainers? Makes me wanna wear my Levi's shorts and go around the city, haha.
I've become a real NIKE shoes lover the past years, so now its time for some shopping I think :) Whoop whoop!
