Life Update

Sunday 25 August 2013

Hi guys! Hope you're all well! I thought today I would just do a little life update post telling you about a few things I've been up to/enjoying lately :)

No.1. Chocolate Factory Hot Chocolate / Nachos at Edinburgh Festival / TVD Season 4

On my lunch break at work I've recently discovered this amazing hot chocolate in The No.1. Chocolate Factory in the West End. They do lovely soups and paninis too (I've sampled a couple!) but I love how pretty the hot chocolate is, I almost didn't want to drink it!

Next we have the nachos I enjoyed for lunch a couple of weeks ago in Edinburgh with some of my favourite blogger ladies. We had just attended the Appointedd launch in Hotel Missoni (vlog coming soon!)and decided to wander through the bustling streets with all the excitement of the Fringe around us and find somewhere to get some food. We sat outside in the sunshine and had a lovely wee afternoon to ourselves.

My Season 4 boxset of The Vampire Diaries arrived on Friday, much to my excitement. I had pre-ordered it from Amazon and forgot when it was due to arrive. I've watched two episodes so far and have really enjoyed them, but I have heard that this season isn't as good as the previous ones... I'll just need to keep watching and decide for myself!

Kirsty, me and Lynne / Dinner is (finally) served / Blogging pals

On Wednesday night I headed into Edinburgh again after work for what was initially going to be a blogger trip to a show at the festival, but that plan fell through. We ended up going for dinner in Candy Bar, which was lovely but the service was ridiculously slow! We were eventually given our second round of cocktails for free because they had taken so long to serve us throughout the night! However, the food was good (I had a cheeseburger and chips - typical!) and we enjoyed couple of lovely cocktails. Best of all, we just had a good chat and catch up, my favourite thing about nights like this. Apologies for the dark photos, there wasn't much light in there and the second and third photos were taken on my phone (the first I stole from Lynne!).

New Hair (and some of my best expressions from my latest video!

Aaaand finally, I got my hair cut and highlighted! Today it's a bit of a mess because I couldn't be bothered washing it (who needs to wash their hair for a lazy Sunday blogging and drinking tea?!) - so the photos are screen shots from my latest video (which you can watch here - shameless plug!). My hairdresser had been on holiday for three weeks and it was so desperately needing cut I couldn't do anything with it! It had also been looking really dull recently, so I bit the bullet and got some highlights. I haven't coloured my hair in six years (eeeek, where has the time gone!) but I felt it needed something to give it a wee lift. So I went for some very subtle golden highlights to brighten it up!

What have you lot been up to lately? Let me know in the comments below!
