July - the monthly roundup

I know it isn't quite the end of July yet, but I am particularly busy from now until the end of the month so thought I would post my July roundup slightly early.   
July has been one roller coaster of emotions. 

At the beginning of the month the school holidays started and we took a trip up to 'Wick' to visit family.  For those of you who don't know, Wick is a small town at the very top of Scotland, around 40 miles from John O'Groats.  Some of the loveliest scenery you will ever see is up in the Scottish Highlands.  We found a hotel named 'Mackay Hotel', we thought this was a great photo opportunity!

Lamb 1887 - Handbags with Heritage

Inspired by the old school glamour of Sophia Loren and Jackie O, Lamb 1887 bags, favoured by style mavens Pippa Middleton, Fearne Cotton and Millie Mackintosh, deliver timeless elegance with modern updates and on-trend prints and colours. The heir to a fourth generation leather empire, founder Charlotte Lamb brings a wealth of experience to her designs from a business originally established by her great grandfather, an artisan cobbler, in 1887.

Hourglass Visionaire Eyeshadow Duo - Suede - Review

Hourglas, Visionaire, eyeshadow, Suede, Makeup

This is the only item in my makeup collection by Hourglass and I picked it up from Sephora during my visit to New York in November.  We aren't lucky enough to have this sort of luxury in Aberdeen Shops, though admittedly the range available here is getting a lot better.

Many of you won't know this and it is a topic I have been debating posting for a while.

This year marks 12 years since the beginning of my anxiety attacks but also, signifies how far I have come in my recovery.
