Three Scottish Craft Drinks You Need To Try.

In Scotland, we take our alcohol pretty seriously. The drinks industry here is booming, and there are so many options to choose from. From beer to whisky to gin, there are craft options being produced around the country, offering unique, distinctive flavours and tastes. Craft 56° invited me to join them in Glasgow for a craft gin and rum tasting evening, giving me the opportunity to learn more about three brilliant small, Scottish companies, their processes, and their products.

A Pony Called Steve - Quirky, Cute Bath & Body Products!*

This might sound strange, but in our house, soap is a big deal. Some people like to splash out on fancy bags or indulge themselves with a new outfit, but for me, buying nice bath products is a little luxury that I love. In fact, owning gorgeous-scented soaps is so much of a treat for me that I nearly cried when I realised my husband was using my precious blocks of sudsy delights as a full-body wash in the shower. So I hope you'll understand why I've placed these two little gems from A Pony Called Steve under lock and key, to protect them from the monster I live with...

Is The Vegan Life For You? Nutritional Testing with*

I'm a vegetarian, but my long-term goal is to go completely vegan (although don't worry, I'm not going to judge anyone who doesn't want to do so - my own husband is currently eating hot dogs next to me). For me, it just seems like the right choice. It would be best for my health (even though I'm lactose intolerant I struggle with giving up my beloved cheese - much to the detriment of my stomach), it's best for the animals, and it's best for the environment. However, I have definitely heard my fair share of horror stories about how going vegan has destroyed people's health. While it's true that not everyone will be able to completely cut out meat and dairy products for health reasons, perhaps a few of us just need a bit of help with adapting to a new diet - and that's where could help.

Aeyshea Jones Boutique Review - #ShopSmall!*

Over the past few years, my focus for buying people presents has turned away from big shops or *whispers* Amazon, and has instead become squarely focused on buying from independent businesses. I trawl sites like Etsy, Notonthehighstreet and Redbubble for the perfect gift, safe in the knowledge that whatever I buy will not be lining the pockets of Jeff bloody Bezos. I love knowing that my purchase will help support small business and enable artists to continue creating beautiful products. So I've decided I'm going to share a few of my favourites on here, starting with the wonderful Aeyshea Jones Boutique!

10 Things To Put On Your Pre-Holiday Checklist.*

We're currently in the middle of a heatwave which is making life in the UK feel unnaturally summery (seriously, it's 29 degrees here in Scotland, madness!). However, if the weather here isn't enough for you and you're jetting off on a summer holiday soon, there are a few things you'll need to think about before you go. Don't worry, they aren't too taxing - you'll be on a sun lounger with a cocktail in your hand in no time...

Three Festivals Worth Catching A Flight For.*

Festival season is in full swing, but I have a confession: I've never been to one. I don't know why, as sitting in a field drinking and listening to music is pretty much my idea of a good time, but perhaps it's the price tags that put me off - I can do that for free! However, there are some festivals that you'd be hard-pressed to replicate in your back garden, and I've picked three that are definitely worth travelling for!
