I was invited along to see the very first performance of the Virgin Money Street of Light as part of the #mystandrewsday celebrations. After reading so much about it, I was really excited for this light display and believe me, it did not disappoint!
I’m a huge fan of sushi and Edinburgh has quite a lot of really good places, but one spot that I haven’t been to and yet really wanted to go was Harajuku Kitchen in Bruntsfield – I’ve passed it a few times and yet never went in. Thankfully I was able to rectify that recently when the PR folks for the restaurant invited me along to give it a try.
It really is starting to look like Christmas in Edinburgh City Centre. With only a month to go until the big day, Edinburgh’s Christmas is in full swing and some of Rose Street’s independent shops have dressed themselves in beautiful festive art thanks to The Rose Street Project.
It’s that time of year again! It feels like yesterday that I was writing about Edinburgh’s Christmas 2014 – and yet here I am, pretty much a year to the day, writing about this year’s offering. How time flies when you’re having fun, eh?
The awful weather seems to be going on forever at the moment! It may be pouring outside, but that’s just even more of an excuse to find shelter somewhere and gorge on some decent comfort food – and a couple of friends and I did just that last week when we paid a visit to Smoke Stack.
Last week Mr Bug and I popped into Henderson’s Vegan, Edinburgh’s very first dedicated vegan bistro. On the night of our visit it was absolutely pouring cats and dogs outside, so we were very much in the mood for some decent comfort food – would we be able to get our fix from a completely meat and dairy free menu?
Tonight Mr Bug and I went to see the spectacular Botanic Lights event at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, and I am so excited to show you our beautiful pictures! It was a great opportunity to put the ol’ camera through its paces although I must admit Mr Bug did most of the work – I just told him where to shoot! 😉
I was really keen to try out Knights Kitchen – I first spotted it in a pop-up stall at one of the city markets during the summer and had a really lovely chicken curry there, so I was excited to learn that it planned to move to a more permanent abode in Newington.
It’s been open for a couple of months now, so Mr Bug and I decided to stop by one sunny Saturday afternoon for some comforting and wholesome African food before a day of trawling the shops.
