Day 1 – calm it on the carbs

Ok so last night I confirmed my re-initiation to Herbalife and that I would diarise my progress with you guys.  I always like to hear how other people manage their diets, for me it has been a constant struggle over the years with my clothes size ranging from an 8 to a 14. So here …

Mhor than meets the eye part 2

Mhor Festival 2015

  For Lee and I’s first wedding anniversary we enjoyed a weekend at Monachyle Mhor and seriously what a bloody weekend it was.  Embarrassingly enough this took place on the 23rd and 24th May and this is me just getting around to posting about it… We chose to spend our ‘Paper Anniversary’ in this picturesque …

Prestonfield House

  I wanted to take a sec to tell you about a visit to Prestonfield House last Saturday, which was a surprise dinner for Lee to celebrate his 29th Birthday (as in the year before 30, as in we are almost at the end of our 20s…) Situated in Edinburgh, Prestonfield House is part of …

Food Life Travel Wedding


Last weekend saw Lee and I return to Mhor 84, the location of our mini-moon back in May, for a rather indulgent lunch which as expected was delicious.  To start we both savoured a seafood chowder which is served with warm soda bread.  Orange in colour, this creamy fish dish has the right amount of kick and is one of …

As the organiser of the trip, which was booked back in January, I put a lot of pressure on myself to try to organise a hen that …

Good food and good fun

You may of noticed the last few weeks have been a bit sparse in terms of posts and so I wanted to take the time to fill you in on the notable goings ons.  In making comments like this, it reminds me that blogging can sometimes be a bit of a self- indulgent sport, I mean, it is of course very likely there will …

Edinburgh Festival pt 2

  Lee and I journeyed back through to Edinburgh this weekend to spend our Satur-day and night soaking up the atmosphere at the festival.  Yesterday was the close of the Fringe and so if you never made it, be sure to plan a trip through next year, it is in my opinion one of the …


Oreo cookie fudge recipe

I wanted to share an amazingly quick recipe for Oreo cookie fudge with you of  Friday afternoon.  I first learned of this recipe last Christmas when I decided to ‘make’ all Lee and I’s gifts, which comprised of glittery strawberry gin, glittery skittles vodka, peanut butter fudge and then Oreo cookie fudge.  The plan had been …


Bibi’s Cantina – Review

Pink Tartan Doll

Last night we dined at Bibi’s Cantina for my brother’s 30th birthday. This is both his and Jac’s fave restaurant and I can understand why. Located on Dumbarton Road (at the Thornwood end of Partick and opposite side of the street from Velvet Elvis), the first things you noticed about Bibi’s are its authentic Mexican decor, intimate surrounds …
