Last weekend, I had the joy of a trip to Birmingham…. Two reasons for my trip: to catch up with my friend from university and for our first Chic Tribe UK meet up.
I love when you get exciting mail... it doesn't happen often these days... it's usually junk mail, bills or bank statements, but over the weekend I got some lovely mail gifted from Niki Mun at Candelicious last week. I love all the vintage inspired details, but the quality of the products are what stand out. … Continue reading Candelicious
Well, it's Friday and I'm sat in the airport watching the world go by as I wait for my flight down south to see some friends. I love people watching and wondering about their lives, what they do, where they are travelling to, whether it’s business or an exotic holiday somewhere. For me, this isn’t an … Continue reading What’s In A Story?
I remember my step-mum saying to me when I left school, that the friends I made at university would be my friends for life. At the time, of course, I thought I knew better and was adamant I'd be friends with my school friends forever (in reality, I lost touch with most of my school … Continue reading Lifelong Friendship

If you’re anything like me, when it comes to looking after your hair, you’ll be pretty fussy… I’ve pretty much had the same hairdresser for years. There’s the odd time I’ve gone elsewhere (usually if I’ve been away or I’ve been lured in by a special offer) and I’ve always regretted it and gone back … Continue reading Monat
So... this is hard... for anyone who's met me in real life, you know there's times when I can talk for Scotland and times when I can be really quiet... this past year or so I've pretty much been in hiding due to life being difficult and only spent time with a few close friends and family so I've definitely been on the quieter side, but lately I've been feeling more like the old Gill (which is part of the reason for launching this blog)... so the once chatty girl is back!
