If we were having coffee…

If we were having coffee…

…what would I tell you? I’ve been tagged by blogger Eleanor Duffy in this cool linky, where we share some surprising facts about ourselves.

So grab a cuppa and enjoy!

 If we were having coffee I’d tell you I don’t ever drink coffee, so I’d opt for a peppermint tea instead. I actually quite like the taste of coffee but I have a really low caffeine tolerance. I took high-caffiene diet pills for a while and honestly I thought I was going to die. So I just stick to herbal tea these days #rocknroll

If we were having coffee I’d tell you my outfit was from eBay. I think some people assume I’m a bit of a clothing snob as I love fashion so much, but honestly I couldn’t care less. I started my blog to provide tips for creating amazing outfits on a budget and that’s never been more relevant to my life than now!

If we were having coffee I’d tell you I miss Edinburgh every day.  I am really enjoying London living but there’s so much going on in that it’s almost overwhelming. And don’t get me started on how expensive everything is here. What I’d give for £1 drinks in Hive!


If we were having coffee I’d tell you about my passion for weight lifting. I think this is something about me that really surprises people but going to the gym is as big a part of my life as fashion. I go 4-6 times a week and I’m a little obsessed with protein goodies (protein cookie, anyone?) I’d also have a moan about the lack of gym etiquette Londoners seem to have. It’s tough being a petite woman in the weights room sometimes.

If we were having coffee I’d ask for some restaurant recommendations. I love, love, love going out for food (though I definitely don’t do it as much as I’d like these days!) I love Asian food especially, but I’ve been craving a really dirty everything-on-top burger recently.


If we were having coffee I’d tell you about the brands I’m loving right now. Top of the list would be Little Lies, an incredible Scottish label of beautifully curated pieces. I try to support independent brands as much as I can.

If we were having coffee I’d tell you I miss the Scottish blogging scene. I’ve met some great friends through blogging events in Edinburgh and Glasgow. There’s a place for everyone at them, no matter how big or small your blog is. I’d love to find the equivalent in London but it’s not the same vibe here.

I’d love to find out what you’d have to say over coffee- remember to tag me in any posts so I can read them!
