“There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!” - Percy Bysshe Shelley ~ One of my favourite Stockbridge buildings looking rather autumnal 🍁
Exploring Edinburgh’s Eateries: @gramsedinburgh | It’s been a while since I posted a food post!My friend and I finally visited Grams after talking about it for ages. I had the #Vegan "Pulled Pork" (Pulled jackfruit in a smoked sauce, peppers, broccoli and brown rice) and liked it - although personally it was a tad too spicy for me 🔥😅
“Nature does nothing in vain.” - Aristotle ~ Thanks Mr. Kitty for the perfect (albeit slightly camouflaged) stride by 😉
“Dawn and dusk are mutual friends of the sun; one opens the door for him to a brand new day and the other one has to shut it to embrace the darkness of night.” - Munia Khan
"I can smell autumn dancing in the breeze. The sweet chill of pumpkin and crisp sunburnt leaves." - Unknown
Exploring Edinburgh’s Eateries: Urban Angel 😇 After attempting to arrange lunch several times, three of my friends and I finally coordinated and had an albeit late lunch at Urban Angel today. Overall, we were pleased with our food, the staff were super friendly, however, (just a caution) it’s slightly expensive!
Good evening everyone! Here’s a snap of Fettes looking oh-so dramatic. It’s no secret that I love old buildings and I’m very excited to finally share a photo of Fettes College - one I’ve often admired!
October is breast cancer awareness month and here’s a little snap from my evening at One Square (@onesquareedinburgh) for their evening tea in collaboration with Cancer Research UK! It was so inspiring to hear two ladies tales of their journey with breast cancer and the massive improvements in treatment over the years. If you’re interested i blogged about the evening and the food, link is in the bio! ❤️
“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.” ― Robert Louis Stevenson, Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes
Good evening! Tonight's post is slightly different, a little while ago the lovely folks at @eteaket sent me a selection of their teas (because they know how much I love ☕️)! I was most excited when I opened the box to see they had sent my favourite flavour "Blooming Marvellous" (if you like floral green tea and haven't tried it you need to!) Also, I sampled their limited edition whiskey tea. I'm not a big whiskey drinker so if you've tried it I'd love to hear your opinion, but, I thought it was very unique and would be a fun gift for a whiskey & tea fan! Ps If you've got to the end of this rather lengthy post, give yourself a pat on the back and in case you're interested I was reading my Edinburgh new town gardens book and the photo is of St Bernard's well 😊 lastly (I promise), as you may or may not know I've moved away from Edinburgh to the countryside and as a result I've been going on a lot more country walks, and that's where I collected my pine cones and chestnuts in the photo 🍂
Hello everyone! It’s been a while so here’s @thebalmoral looking stunning at golden hour! Also, I just finished writing a blog post about my top 5 favourite Scottish words, if you’re interested the link is in my bio ☺️Also, I'd love to hear your favourite Scottish word in the comments!
Exploring Edinburgh's Eateries | The Pastry Selection (@the_pastrysection) | I visited the Pastry Selection a while ago and being located in Stockbridge I naturally expected it to be good, but, the raspberry & white chocolate tart we had truly surpassed any expectations I had - it was utterly delicious! #check8174
Camera Obscura / It's great to have a friend who works at a place with a fantastic view of the city!
The Gardener's Cottage - Isn't it sweet? I've only eaten there once but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had hoped to visit on Saturday but after attending an open doors event, we were too late for lunch 🙁 Anyone else been? (Also, apologies if the photo looks blurry, it didn't when I edited and uploaded it on my iPad 🤔)
