West End days

Thankfifi- West End days-9

Lazy days in the sun with my fav furry boy and all on the doorstep – every now and then when the sun pokes out Glasgow sure is a bonnie wee place.

Spent bank holiday Monday doing all my most favourite things including dog walks along the River Kelvin with the husband, a Kember & Jones picnic under the last of the cherry blossom, sporting stripes and leather and chasing tennis balls (oh wait, that one wasn’t me).  And not forgetting that caring is sharing… seems Mr K is quite the fan of salmon salad.  (Not literally sharing, ewww, more like me eating as much as I could and him finishing off the leftovers).

Surely one of the best things about blogging is saving memories of days like these?  Thanks for coming along with me.x

Hello toes

Thankfifi- Hello toes-10

Happy Easter everyone!  The sun shone and the toes came out – winning.

Some of you might already know that I took a day trip to London last week and had the pleasure of attending the opening of Ulanka, a huge Spanish brand with loads of really amazing leather pieces and this store at 153 Oxford Street is their first outwith Spain.  I had to bring these sandals home and I am super happy with them – I don’t think I ever received so many compliments on a pair of shoes the first time I wore them.

Yesterday, before our Easter family lunch, we took a dog walk (of course) and saw the bikers delivering Easter eggs to the children’s hospital – literally hundreds and hundreds of bikers riding to the hospital with chocolate eggs.  It’s actually really incredible to see… and hear.

Hope you all had a wonderful day.x

The perfect white tee

Thankfifi- The perfect white tee-7

The perfect white tee is not easy to come by.  Sometimes the basics are the really tricky bits to get spot on.  But this tee has it nailed.  It’s fitted and yet has the perfect boyfriend slouch.  Its v is just right, not too low, not too high, not too wide – just right.  It washes really well (I should know, I’ve worn it almost non-stop since I bought it).  And it’s white as white can be.  I have ordered more colours already because I know I’ll wear them all the time.  Do yourself a favour and do the same, I promise you won’t regret it (your other half might when you’ve worn it all day long and decide you must sleep in it too, then the next morning you wash it and crank up the heating to get it dry again…  It’s that good).

Happy Friday.x

P.S.  After a bit of a fall out with After Effects – you know the kind that starts as an aloof ‘you will not get the better of me’ huff, evolves into a screaming ‘I hate you’ one sided fight before the emotional ‘I’m sorry, just tell me how to fix this’ crawl back – I have finally managed to get my first ever video tutorial online.  Go watch my super easy Spring Ombre Hair video here.  Hope you like it.x

Our Coachella…

Thankfifi- If Coachella were in Melrose-4

Well it wasn’t quite Coachella but we packed up with a group of friends and travelled down to the Scottish borders for the Melrose Sevens – a weekend with a festival atmosphere, lots of laughs and at least a little bit of sunshine.  There was even live music (it might have been the locals, Auntie Liz and Hilda) but, you know what, it was a whole heap of fun.  Perfect birthday weekend for me!
