Last week, we took ourselves away for a few days in Edinburgh to eat nice food and wander. Zoe kindly recommended us some places to shop, which we duly went to, and bought from, along with some of our own favourites.

As you can see I've been having a play around with my phones camera.


  1. oh oh oh! U had my favourite kind of day! I love drinking coffee in Artisan Roast and shopping on Victoria street and visiting the galleries of Edinburgh! What should I do next time i'm in Carlisle?x

  2. Those massive building towering over painted shop fronts are awesome.

    Your coffee has a heart on top! I want to go there(and get hot chocolate, because I don't like coffee).

  3. Yay, glad you had a good time with you holibags.

  4. Louisa May- if I were feeling snarky, I'd say not to bother coming to carlisle! but thats mean, I dont make the most of it I think. theres a cafe/restaurant tucked away in the centre called merienda, thats lovely, you should go there, and if youre driving go out to steads for ridiculously cheap fabric.

    LM- the coffee was IMMENSE. I was so buzzing, its unreal.

  5. Thanks Rebecca! I'll look those up! Excitingly you can now buy Artisan Roast beans online at pekoe tea.co.uk! Enjoy!

  6. Glad you had such a good time and that my guide turned out to be useful :) Loving the heart coffee too!

  7. Glad you had a good time; I never end up having any time to actually see stuff in Edinburgh, maybe our next day off!

  8. Happy easter! Need to pay a visit ...
