Dating events have come a long way since that one couple that are friends with your parents met at […]

We “live for the weekend” so much so that Thursday’s are becoming the new Friday, as TGIT rapidly becomes a “thing”. As tremendous as this is, Thirsty Thursday’s well and truly lead to banging headaches come Friday as you’re rushed with the realisation that it is in fact a work day and you’ve got to get your bum to the office and reply to a stomach churning display of e-mails. Alas, we’ve got a solution up our sleeves that’ll have you shotting it like it’s hot […]

How About A Jump Back In Time To The Roaring 20s?

The Spellbinding Tea Shop And Museum All In One

There’s no doubt about it, a cup of tea really does make everything better. It sits on our work desks pushing us through e-mails, lands in the hands of strangers as we meet for the first time, perches on the lips of friends as we catch up, goes hand-in-hand with our morning cereal bowls and rests on our bed side table with a good book. If you think tea is simply tea-rrific then you may have caught wind of Mariage Frères’ opening; France’s oldest tea house and tea house, sitting snug inside a five-storey Georgian townhouse on King Street. The incredible spot brings tea savoir-faire […]

Go The Whole Hogmanay: New Year In Edinburgh

Boy can Edinburgh throw a New Year’s Eve party, that’s one thing we know for sure! And it’s a real given that the last hours of every year should be spent full of food, surrounded by fireworks, and a little (if not very) drunk. Hogmanay is believed to reach back to the celebration of the winter solstice among the Norse, as well as incorporating customs from the Gaelic celebration of Samhain. And yet to be honest, when it all comes down to it, we’re not too phased about why we’re celebrating, we just know we want to! So here are a […]
