I’M BAAAAACK (FROM MY JOLLIES)

Please excuse my hiatus, I’ve been a very busy bee both at work and in my personal life buuuut on a plus note we do have a lot to catch up on…

WEDDINBURGH:

I arrived in Edinburgh on Friday afternoon, feeling very  excitable. It had been a while since I’d been back to the beautiful city I grew up in and of course since I’d seen my old pals. I had bought a dress already for the wedding reception (NBD as mentioned in my previous post) but a trip into Edinburgh city centre put paid to that seeing the light of day as I discovered THE dress in Urban Outfitters.

I was really impressed with how the retail offering in Edinburgh has evolved and improved, much in contrast with many places in the UK and I guess at odds with the current financial climate. It’s always a great place to visit, with endless lovely places to eat, drink and shop but it was nice to note that for a much smaller city, shops like Urban Outfitters here were streets ahead of their Birmingham based counterparts (sorry but it’s true). Urbs for example had a much larger range of clothes, along with an impressively put together store – it’s a delight to shop there. Even Primark was actually a nice, non-stressful place to shop, and when does that ever happen?

Anyway, rant aside… (I STILL LOVE BIRMINGHAM, OBVS!)

CLAWS:

I’ve wanted to try stiletto nails for a while, and although as I have mentioned before I’m not very good with long nails, I decided to buy some stick ons and get busy manicuring in the departure lounge. The end result looked quite scary to me at first but the longer I had them on the more I enjoyed them and I felt they worked perfectly with my dress on Saturday night. I painted the inside and the outside and was very pleased with myself and my celebrity nails indeed. I did not however, consider that when one has ridiculously long nails, one is incapacitated. Unable to text, do up buttons/buckles, feed myself correctly etc. I removed the claws first thing as the weekend came to an end. I’ll so be doing them again though!

ANFINALLY:

On Friday night we went for food at Villager (one of my favourite places EVER) where I was overjoyed to find a Banoffee Martini on the menu. If you’re ever in Edinburgh I beg you to try this, it was amazing!

Saturday night was an epic reunion with some of my very favourite people and of course so lovely as it was a big celebration of the wedding of my friends Nadine and Steve.
