Birthday treats!

Last Saturday was my 26th birthday - crivens!! Px and I went out for brunch to the wonderful Circle cafe in Cannonmills .

(Picture from thankyou!)

This is becoming a bit of an annual event and the bit of my birthday I look forward to most! I had ciabatta with spinach and parma ham topped with a soft boiled egg and a pile of tasty leaves whilst Px had a juicy pork, lemon and thyme burger. We followed this off with their excellent coffees (beans supplied by Artisan Roast I believe top quality!) and a heart warming apple pie - well it was my birthday after all!

Before she went back off to Italy at Easter my big sister Sarah left me a little bag of delightful treats which I (amazingly) managed to resist opening until Saturday morning.
Such pretty trims! Am looking forward to putting them to good use on some new projects I have in mind for after I finish Uni - next week!!!

I really have no excuses now......

Anyway thank you Sarah for my very special little gifts (and for the double sided tape of course - not so photogenic I'm afraid!!) xxx

Lovely blog award!

I have to thank my lovely big sister....

who has not only inspired me to start blogging but has also nominated me for a 'lovely blog award'!  Thank you Sarah! 

In order to qualify for the award the rules are I have to tell you all 10 things about me that you might not already know.  I'm going to do this one day at a time as I've got lots of uni work due in so am a bit pushed for time! So here goes.....

Number 1.

I am currently working at a lovely ladies fashion boutique in the Scottish Borders called 'Inis'.  At Inis we stock a range of inspiring brands including Noa Noa, Sandwich, French Connection, Inwear, Avoca and Hobbs.  I have worked at Inis on and off for a number of years and am currently assisting in the web office and sometimes in the stores  (there are 3 stores located in Hawick, Peebles and Galashiels).  I really enjoy the work and am very proud to be a part of a great team and most importantly I love and am passionate about the products we sell and hope you will be too!  Please have a look:
