This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀

This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

Scotland | Edinburgh

We went to Scotland recently as Richard had some business up in Glasgow while I was free to explore where I spent a day in Edinburgh.

Scotland is one of those places in the UK that I always wanted to visit. For a Londoner, Scotland always seems to me like an elusive part of the UK to visit. I say that as getting to Scotland is no easy feat; by car, it’s a 6-7 hours’ drive, by train it’s roughly the same time and while flying is more accessible – it still a hassle to get to the airport. I would hear friends and family that would say, ‘one day I’ll do the drive up there’, or ‘one day I will get the train from King Cross up to Edinburgh’.

As you can imagine, visiting Scotland was always on my bucket list and when giving the option to visit Scotland – I was not going to turn it down. What makes this trip a little unique for me, I pretty much had a few days to do nothing but to tick a few places off my bucket list. I was free to do what I will. Richard was working all day and me – I was just a girl free to explore Scotland.

We travelled up to Scotland by plane, as it was a quicker and cheaper option. So, we went from Gatwick to Glasgow airport. The flight only took an hour – but getting to the airport, then hanging around waiting for departure took the most time.  We also travelled late in the evening, so we didn’t get to Glasgow nearing midnight.

My plan for the following day was to get a train to Edinburgh and spend a day there. From Glasgow, it is only an hour train ride. Edinburgh has been on my bucket list since I was young and with a journey so easy, I wasn’t going to miss out the opportunity.

Now, this is when things take a downward turn, nothing too bad – but as I was walking to the train station, I went smack on the pavement. I’m not sure if I tripped over something or I accidentally tripped over someone, but one minute I was walking along minding my own business – the next I facepalm the pavement and spread out. I was generally ok, and people did rush over to help me up, but I grazed my hand and cut up my leg. I could walk – but only at a hobble pace.

My first point of call once I got to Edinburgh was to visit the castle.

To help me see as much as possible while I was there, I decided to hop onto a tour bus. I know people roll their eyes at the tour bus, but for me, where my sense of direction is awful, it did seen the logical option. Also, with my fall from earlier in the day, my leg was still cut up, and I was still hobbling everywhere.

The tour bus circuit took me around various places such as Holyrood Palace, Scottish parliament building and Arthur seat. I didn’t spend too long visiting them as the castle took up most of my time.

I didn’t let the tour bus completely overtake my day in Edinburgh. I did get off and walk around areas such as the royal mile and princess street. I also walked around Edinburgh old town and the general area surrounding the castle.

I think I stayed close to the castle area as I didn’t want to get lost and I didn’t really have time to venture further. I did have this plan where I would venture to see The Royal Britannia, the Royal Botanic garden and even, maybe Portobello beach. Heck, me being into ghosts I was planning on visiting the vault and doing a good ghost tour.

But time was a factor for me and also on the day I was there – it was so cold. I was wearing my thick jumper and winter coat – and yet I was so cold.

That was my day in Edinburgh. I travelled back to Glasgow late afternoon as it was getting dark and my phone battery was dying.

I can see how JK Rowling got inspire with Harry Potter as I found Edinburgh to be an enchanting place to visit. Every turn, knack and crony of Edinburgh did feel like you were walking into a Harry Potter film set. There was so much to see and so much to explore – you can bet I would love to go back to Edinburgh. If I had a magic wand, I would go back in a heartbeat.

    I love Edinburgh. We loved it so much when we were there that we were considering moving, but ultimately it was too much for what was just a moment of ‘imagine this.’
    You’ve got some lovely pictures where which are bringing it all back to me!
    I hope you’re okay after your fall!

    Oh dear, I am so sorry that you fell down on a trip like this one. I just checked and a flight from here to Edinburgh is only an hour and 15 minutes. I have to go to Scotland very soon. Your photos are great and my preference would be to going during the summer months.
