Live Adventurously with Go Ape

April 24, 2017
I'm not the most spontaneous or adventurous person but when I got invited back to do the Go Ape course at Crathes Castle it took me about 12 minutes to scramble the 'tribe' and get it all booked!

Sam, his sister, brother and myself all did the course last year which you can read all about my first impression here (the video is a must watch for the shaky footage alone - it was when I climbed my first tree that I realised that I was scared of heights!). 

Go Ape have 31 locations all across the UK and counting and they have just celebrated their 15th Birthday ( ... happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you). They have 3 locations in Scotland, Aberfoyle home to two of Britain's longest zip-wires, Peebles with some of the highest zip-wires over reservoirs and Crathes Castle in Aberdeenshire located in 240 hectares of luscious countryside with an incredible skateboard infused zip-wire!

Micro Family Days

April 23, 2017

Family is the most important thing to me, everything that we worry about and stress over really doesn't matter and at the end of the day its who you surround yourself with, it's who your cuddled up on the sofa with at night - that's what/who matters. 

St Andrews, a virtual tour

April 04, 2017
As you may have seen Sam and I were in St Andrews a few weeks ago for a stay at the Fairmont but we decided to stay on a few days more. St Andrews is a home from home for me as my Grandparents  live there and I used to spend weeks walking around the east sands and in and out of the cobbled streets - it brings back great memories of my childhood. 

I thought I'd do a little catch up post to show you the beauty that is St Andrews, a few of my favourite spots and must see's, from the Historic Harbour to the clear blue seas. 

St Andrews is full to the brim of students and as students come and go, as do they're bicycles. Every corner you turn you're more than likely to catch a glimpse of one.

This is the weekend I enrolled Sam as my 'Instagram Husband', slightly reluctant he soon changed his mind and was snap happy. There were a few mid pose change that are quality, trust me, they won't be making a blog post!

The next two photos is of one of the many colourful cobbled streets that connects Market Street to North Street, I love the colourful buildings.

I love boutique stores and independent businesses and Piccadilly Lilly is one of them. Run by Mia in a little Scottish villiage called Elie, Piccadilly Lilly opened it's doors in July 2016 and they sell a mixture of Women's clothing, jewellery, accessories and hand-crafted interior pieces. The interiors are all handmade by Mia's husband Sandy in his workshop, re-using wood and happily commissioning work taking your ideas and turning them into a reality.
A great thing about the store is that it will keep on growing as Mia finds new designers and talented makers.
