10th Anniversary: The Ivy & Tigerlilly Edinburgh.

10 years, wow. Anytime we tell people how long we have been together we get the same reaction every time ‘what age are you?’. At least, we will always look younger than average in our anniversary photos! We have a bit of an awkward anniversary with it being right after christmas but it’s a big one so we chose somewhere a bit fancier than usual for our lunch. We decided to go in a bit earlier to have a little wander round the shops before lunch, and we came across the Tesla Pop-up shop. Those cars are living in another world; truly amazing. And it seemed like our lucky day when they offered us to go along to their test drive day in a few weeks. It’s a bit of a fun day but a small amount of people get to test drive one of their models. Ross accepted without hesitation & I’m sure I will be popping that on the blog in a few weeks too! I’ve seen ‘The Ivy‘ advertised in London and …

My Instagram Detox

One of my new years resolutions this year was to be more ‘Present’. I’ve been reading a book called, ‘the power of the now’ and it’s all about being conscious of the moment you’re currently in and not thinking about the past or the future.

I used to find myself scrolling and scrolling through timelines, profiles and before I knew it an hour had passed and I wasn’t any further forward with my day, to-do lists or even worse, I wasn’t being present with who I was with. I think Instagram is one of the worst platforms for comparing yourself to others. And we always say that it’s the younger generation thats getting hit the worst by it, but I disagree. Im 24, going on 25 this year and I think it affects me just as much because I look at people I follow and constantly compare myself or …

A Day in Gullane

We are finally into the first week of normality in 2019 and I am feeling pretty good about it. I like having a routine and getting back into the swing of things. Tonights post is going back to last week and a trip we took to Gullane on January 2nd, just before Ross went back to work. It was set to be a beautiful day and we wanted to spend our day somewhere different rather than wasting our last day of the holidays in the house. A few days before this, Bailey was aloud out for walks so what better thing to do than take a day trip with her. We had to be careful though, as she is still a little baby and we didn’t want to walk her too far and hurt her little legs. But, as usual she surprised us and was raring to go from the moment we got there. We originally planned to go to North Berwick and during our drive we went through a town called Gullane and we …
