My Stylish Adventure



Hi there, Im back after my little adventure in Edinburgh and pretty smitten I can tell you! I fell in love with  its beautiful architecture, stunning skylines and scottish charm! I was thrilled by Edinburgh eclectic mix of Italian ice-cream, Neplalese restaurants, Sherlock holmes quaint gentility and its highland eccentricity.Edinburgh is a wonderful place to visit, dubbed by many as little Venice for its designer shops! If your the type of gal who loves to mingle amongst the contempory and the traditional, this is just the place for you.Cosy and sophisticated are words that spring to mind!



Edinburgh Castle,so romantic!

Jenners a shopping centre, believe it or not, you could be in Venice!

One of edwardian rooms at the George Hotel where we stayed, so elegant.

Our Room In The Hotel

My favourite shop Jack Wills, you must pop in if you visit Edinburgh, features quirkey eccentric and fun pieces, superbly tailored, like this tartan blazer and these pretty tartan panties or this evening dress with stiff charcoal netting and huge bow! charming!Here are a few favourites to give you a feel.





Hope you enjoyed the delicously sweet pink and blue candy stripe that adorn all their traditional range,like this cute tin box of sticking plasters! Here are a couple of photos of the famous Usher Hall, that we visited when we went to see a classical Rachmaninov concert together.Check out, the blend of the old and new, the light feature below stretches almost from floor to ceiling, stunning! With the spiral staircase snaking around the shaft of light, Edinburgh designers are not afraid to mix things up a little!!



Great to be back! But I have left a teensy piece of my heart back there and I just know I will return! Sharon xx

Your trip looked lovely. My daughter went to visit Edinburgh a few years ago on a youth trip and was quite enchanted by the Edinburgh Castle as well. I must say this is one of the places I do want to visit. Glad you are back...happy week to you my friend.

My dear, thank you very much for taking us on a gorgeous tour of Edinburgh, I have dreamed of setting foot in that fine, ancient city for as long as I can recall, and love to live my travel dream vicariously through those who head there.

So happy you had a fantastic trip! I hope your week ahead is marvelous, too!

Edinburgh's great isn't it?! I've only been once and there was probably more emphasis on the drinking than the sight seeing but I thought it was wonderful and have been itching to go back ever since.

Your hotel looks gorgeous - much nicer than the floor of a student's bedroom that I stayed on, along with 4 of my friends when we went there!
