Hometown Murders.

Happy Halloween lovelies! The spookiest time of the year is upon us. I personally love Halloween, but I'm fairly boring - give me a scary movie and some "leftover-not-at-all-just-bought-for-us-to-eat" sweeties meant for trick-or-treaters and I'm happy, so I don't have any fancy costumes or makeup looks to share. I don't even have any movie recommendations - my favourite is The Exorcist, hardly a hidden gem - so I'm choosing to share something a little different with you this All Hallow's Eve.

Lush Livingston Blogger's Event (+ Halloween Haul!).

Anyone who reads this blog will know I am a huge Lush fan - I have a pile of bath bombs, bubble bars and shower gels that could stock a small store but I'm never satisfied, I always need more!  The Halloween and Christmas ranges are by far my favourite so I was so excited when I was invited to the Lush Livingston store this week to check out this year's offerings at their blogger event.

Glossybox October 2017.

Glossybox October 2017

I know that Birchbox was doing a great deed by having a charity-themed box but I have to admit I was disappointed that neither of this month's beauty boxes lent themselves to a full-blown Hallowe'en photoshoot. I tried to jazz it up with some bat fairy lights and spider confetti but I couldn't get as spooky as I wanted because, let's face it, unicorns aren't scary.

Birchbox October 2017.

I know that every time I write one of these, I start rambling on about how quickly time is going, but seriously, how is it nearly November?! However, I have been really enjoying October. Autumn is by far my favourite season and I have been embracing the Hallowe'en spirit too. I was really hoping for a spooky themed Birchbox this month, but there was a much nobler concept instead.

Mental Health + Relationships - with the Lilac Linnet!

I love a beauty blog or a fashion post as much as the next guy (I'm very envious of their skills with a camera particularly) but the blogs that really get me excited are the ones that I feel like I learn from. I get great joy from being able to click someone's link and be made to think, to find out what is important to other people and to read all about the things they love. That is why I kind of squealed a bit when my friend Abbey introduced me to Llinos and her blog The Lilac Linnet.

Mental Health in the Workplace - #WorldMentalHealthDay.

This year's topic for World Mental Health Day is 'Mental Health in the Workplace'. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this, as I think it's an incredibly important but often neglected subject. It's also something that is very personal to me, as someone who has been unable to juggle both work and my mental health for a long time. Is it time that businesses did more to help their employees with mental health concerns?

Wine Tasting at Veeno Edinburgh.*

If there are two things in life that I love, they are wine and cheese - so I think you can see why I was absolutely delighted to be invited along to Veeno - the Italian Wine Café. I was asked to review one of their wine tasting options, and I don't think I've ever accepted an invite so enthusiastically before in my life!

What I Read In September.


I wrote one of these about both June and July and as they went down pretty well, I thought I'd do another. I've had quite an eclectic month in terms of books so hopefully there's at least one title that catches your eye!

Birchbox September 2017.

birchbox september 2017

Okay, I know that it's technically now October and that this is clearly very out of date, but I just did a review of the September Glossybox, and it felt really weird not doing one for Birchbox too. So if you could just humour me this time, I'd appreciate it.
