The Vegan Kind Box 10.


Freedom Strawberry Marshmallows
These are me favourite thing from this VK box! Hands down the best, tastiest mallows ever!!! I highly reccomend these and I can't rave about them enough!

Breakfast Bar
This is. Great wee bar, I've always said I'm not a massive fan of vegan chocolate but this bitterness is really evened out because of the chewy vanilla granola bar.

Nope. Rank. I really did not enjoy these. I'm not sure what other things you could use them for, maybe on salads? Not for me though, just not a good taste or texture for me, if they done a dry fruit alternative then is probably love it.

Ahhh I loved these! People forget that household things like this aren't vegan and can be tested on animals, so they are harder to find. These were great and no less effective than non vegan ones so I'm sold and my mum has been ordered only to buy these washing tabs!

I love that more and more popcorn companies are doing salt and sweet bags! It's my favourite and I always get it mixed at the cinema! This popcorn was a little different because the sweet was more a toffee popcorn, so if that's how you like your corn this is the one!

Last Wednesday night I was invited over to Edinburgh to visit a wee shop in the city called Godiva Boutique. I'd never been before so I wasn't sure what it was going to be like but its the most adorable little store!

In the front section of the store its all very kitsch and quirky and they have an open floor with a couch and a huge mirror covered in scarfs! I love this layout, it all feels very personal shopper yet still cosy as its open but feels so welcoming that i don't think anyone would be shy about coming out of the fitting room to show of their finds. If you visit the store you will understand what I mean. This is the area where they have all their local designers. I know a lot of Glasgow designers so this was exciting to get to learn about the Edinburgh designers and designers I didn't know about. They have loads of different bits too, clothes, bags, scarfs, purses and some lovely quirky jewellery and accessories.

Moving through to the back of the store you go in to the Vintage section of the store, full of great, very affordable vintage bits. I definitely notice a different in the prices of vintage from Glasgow to Edinburgh and Glasgow is usually more affordable, but Godiva have those Glasgow prices and a brilliant collection of gorgeous vintage dresses!

There was loads of fun things to do at the event, the staff really put so much effort in and had some great ideas, I've enjoyed an event so much in a while. There was demonstrations from Runaway Fox (more on that next) some DIY on how to make your own vintage camera strap from the Godiva girls, lots of amazing cakes and nibbles and a customization station! 

The guys from Runaway Fox gave us a demo on their new Body Casting service, which they came up with while working of their new collection, which you have to watch out for! Lets just say it included a very real looking crab claw necklace and a very creepy pigs snout door knob, all animal friendly though! 
They cast a few of the girls fingers in front of us to show how they do it, it was so cool! They then made the finger casts in to necklaces for the girls.

To find out what the other bloggers thought of the event just search:

Thanks so much to the guys over at Godiva for the invite and hosting a brilliant night! 
I can't wait to pop in the next time I'm in Edinburgh!

Day 3 was just spent enjoying the last of our time in The Dam before we had to head for our flight ... which we almost most.

We basically just enjoyed watching the city go by and had a big pancake breakfast!

I absoloutley loved the city and I would highly recommend it if you are thinking of visiting, it may be the city famous for smoking and Ladies of the Night but its such a beautiful and romantic place.

Theres loads of touristy things to do, amazing galleries and mueseums, a variety of flea markets, tons of resteraunts and great shopping to!

I will deffinately be back!

Amsterdam Day 2.

I got up early on Saturday morning and headed in to the city by myself to visit one of the flea markets! It was an absolute dream! Piles ans piles of clothes and fabrics everywhere, it was just a matter of diving in and having a good rummage about, which I did, for about 2 hours. I ended up with a ton of vintage stuff! 4 Dresses, 1 hand made tartan coat, 2 shirts, 2 meters of perfect white lace, one pastel scarf and a waterproof bike sheet all about £9. Unbelievable.

Once I met the rest of the group we done the canal tour around the city, I loved it, its amazing just to see all the different building and thousands of houseboats along the canals. I could see myself living in one of those house boats.

Then at night we headed to the Ice Bar and had a few ... OK a lot of drinks. We ended up heading back to our hotel on a rickshaw which was hysterical ... even better they let us stop for food on the way.

The Perfect Saturday.
