Do something Different – 1&2/12

Do Something Different – Jan & Feb

My Do Something Different posts are a monthly feature of the new things I have done. I didn’t make a New Years resolution but I did promise to do something different at least once a month. A pretty easy task if I include new cocktails, bars, foods, places etc.

I thought rather than miss out a whole month of the things I’ve done that are different I would merge January and February into one post for march.


* I bought 4 pairs of shoes or rather 2 pairs of shoes and 2 pairs of boots (1 was a gift) from Topshop in the space of 3 days! I don’t recall this as something I have done before.

* I went to view a wedding venue with my best friend for her big day next year. The venue was a no. But the amazing cocktail with lemon sorbet was defiantly a YES! Missoni Edinburgh you do delight me.

* a double date with my best friend and her Fiancé. We have been friends for a really long time but I think this is the first time we have been out in a couple situation. Not an official double date because we are all beyond that stage but it was fun none the less. We enjoyed a visit to pizza express followed by a visit to Monteiths, I love this place. We had some lethal cocktails that looked like something my granny had made and we all felt very Scottish in our surroundings.

* a lovely walk up a part of the Pentlands that I hadn’t visited before (the entrance from Bonaly). The dog had tons of fun, so did I, until my ears began to hurt.

* I got to indulge in my obsession of China when the Terracotta Warrior lanterns were in town.

* I went along to my first day time bloggers event – #edinblog from Digitas UK and Cult Content. It was a really fab day and I totally loved the talk from bangs and a bun. Inspiring, informative and engaging. I also got to sample Horny Beer!

* I had my first ever experience of Patisserie Valerie. One word “YUM”

* I introduced a blogging content calendar and Trello to my life! hello ms organised.
