It is so exciting but I have moved - eeeek! 

My new website is which I am buzzing to show you! It isn't finished yet and still needs a lot of work, but I can't wait any longer to show you. So have a little patience with me getting it up and running completely.

I know this one looks a little messy as I was trying to change it, but I have scrapped that and went completely new!

So pop on over, get following and I will see you there!

For a lot of us, Sunday's eating habits are about sitting around a massive roast with family. It is something I desperately miss when I am away. I love coming home from church and filling up with stuffing, roast chicken, and usually a cheesecake of some sort. 

Sunday's in Edinburgh revolve more around burgers and Nando's. Don't get me wrong, I love it but a homely meal is needed every once in a while.

This is why I am showing you my new favourite Sunday Lunch joint. The Lioness of Leith.

It is quirky and delicious - need I say more?

For your roast, you can choose between a 1/2 or a whole chicken. For the 5 of us, we went for one and a half roast chickens which was perfect. 

You can choose between Yorkshire puddings, honey roasted carrots and parsnips, rosemary and garlic roasties, peas, and other scrummy things. We pretty much ordered them all!

Their beautiful blue china is gorgeous and gives the place a real country feel.

Lucie ordered a kiwi cocktail to celebrate the summer sunshine breaking through the clouds!

A little tip - if you are going for Sunday lunch, I recommend bringing a group of people. It means you can nibble on all the side dishes without having to compromise, or else it would be quite pricey.

And here we go. The feast that fills every person to the brim on a Sunday. 

I cannot describe how delicious everything was. The roast chicken was so juicy and crispy on the outside. The smell of it made all of us crave even more.

The plates kept coming until our table was filled in every corner. The vegetables in their honey roast went down a treat with everyone. The roast potatoes were a personal favourite with the steam drifting up as we dug in.

Our Juicy Lucie took the honour of carving our bird for everyone. She is the only one we trust to take on such a task - the rest of us could never be trusted with a knife!

I can not recommend this place enough. The staff were great and the food was a real crowd pleaser. It wasn't too busy which was nice, but I'm not sure if that is true for most weekends as it seems pretty popular.

Grab your friends and head along some weekend for home comforts and a fully belly that will bring you on to Monday morning!

In my flat, I am blessed to live with four engaged girls, including myself. As my sister said, its like we have "diamond dust" in the water.

Many of you will be the same with friends/family getting engaged. Then it is a tough one knowing what to get for them. Here I come to give you a helping hand.  

So here are a few cute ideas for inspiration and take your gifting worries away. 

Everything today is from, and

1. Personalised Bride Wedding Hanger

You can personalise the bride and groom's name on it, the date, and pick a colour of your choosing.

2. Personalised Heart Map Print

This is a great idea for a couple who live apart in a long distance relationship. You can choose the two cities which is pretty cute if you ask me.

3. Wooden Map Heart Box

This is another little location number. Are the couple moving to a different location once they are married? Perhaps a map location of the new city/town or the place where they first met.

4. Ground Coffee and Mug Set

This is for the coffee lovers out there with the cute 'Good Morning Beautiful/Handsome' mugs to match.

5. Mug

 To keep on the mug theme, since I am a tea lover. This is a great, simple idea.

6. Mason Jars

Or if they are more of a cold drinks lover, this is for them. It can even be used on the wedding day with a vintage theme.

7. Wedding Notebook

For the girl that loves to make lists and write every single thing down, this is for all their plans. Personalised too which is an extra bonus. 

8. Wedding Countdown Notebook

This is another version of the notebook, but perhaps this could be for the girl who uses diaries. They can document the whole wedding plan in a cute little diary format.

15. Countdown Calender

Then just to top of the cuteness, you can get an advent style calender. For your best friend, you could team up with her fiance and create personalised messages behind each door. Do you not just ADORE this idea? I want this so badly next year *hint hint*

You can put 23 reasons why her fiance loves her, 23 things the bride/groom should remember for the day, or for all you hens/stags you can put 23 memories behind the doors. IN LOVE!!

16. Finally, you need an engagement card to top your amazing prize off. 

You can officially say your the best friend they could have asked for now.

'You're Getting Married' Engagement Card

Congratulations to all your friends and family who are putting a ring on that beautiful finger. It is such an exciting time filled with love and blessings. 

Hope this has offered some great inspiration! Happy shopping!

So it has been a few weeks - heeeeey *waves*.

Exams are finito and I am free as a bird for a while to enjoy the beginning of summer. However, we have a lot of catching up to do.

A few weeks ago I went to my University's Grand Ball. If you follow me on Instagram you will have already seen plenty of pictures, but I wanted to show you it all in a blog post. 

It is a great way to end the University Society and Sports year - everyone gets dressed up in their finest, eats a great meal and dances the night away. Some a little more sober than others. I've mentioned before that I don't drink or go out, so it is always interesting watching these nights unfold - tehee!

It was best of all - a masquerade ball - so there was no way I was missing out.

I used my Sleep-In Rollers for my hair to give it a good bounce. The only thing is I didn't sleep in them. Just a self blow-dry and put them in my hair for around 4 hours with A LOT of hair spray. 

I don't really like my hair fully curly, or in an up-do, I just love big and soft curls falling over my shoulder. This definitely achieved that. However, if you feel like sleeping in an extremely uncomfortable position all night with a sore neck in the morning - be my guest and wear them overnight!

Here are the results:

I just love getting dressed up with my besties. The Christian Girls are some of the sweetest, loveliest people I know. They have such a huge heart for people and all looked amaaaazing on the night.

Lucy told me off for taking too many selfies, hehe!

But hold on Lucy, there are many more to come.

Lucy was dressed up in the most beautiful Gatsby style dress with her matching 1920's hairdo. She honestly looked like she could have been in the book. 

Outside was buzzing with different taxis arriving with men in suits and ladies in heels. All wearing glittery masks to match. 

I got some pictures with my two flatmates who looked UNREAL. Literally could not have looked more beautiful. 

Lucie was wearing a self-confessed "iron-bru" Ted Baker number and Lois was wearing a vintage velvet dress. Both were just stunning. 

Poised. As always.

Let's take a closer look at these beauties...

That red lipstick with the gold mask - mmhmm! You can find her glittering gold mask here.

Then Lucie - just wow. She can really pull off that bright number with her blonde-bombshell look. I just loved it. You can find her mask here.

I wore a simple black dress. Nothing too fancy. You can find it on Missguided here 

My shoes are New Look (similar here) and you can find my mask here

Can I just say that my shoes were beyond comfy. Instead of limping home with sore feet I could not wait to get off, these were medium hight and kept my dancing going all night.

Happy feet = Happy Jess!

The actual ball was a secret garden filled with leaves, birdcages and fairy lights. 

We giggled, caught up and watched the award ceremony unfold with good food. 

Lucie even won an award - YAY! She has been such an inspiration in the CU and I can't wait to see where life leads her in the future. 

The girls at CU are all so inspiring with their stories, lives and great fun.

We danced the night away to (I must admit) a not-so-great DJ. The band were great, but the DJ would not shut up during the songs, meaning we couldn't just dance to our favourites. He swore a lot and kept slagging of people, but it didn't get in the way of our fun.

It is sad to see the end of another year of uni. Time is flying by so quickly. I am glad to have some time off now for a while and return home, but goodness, these really are the good days!

Thank you everyone for making my night so fantastic, you all looked breathtaking! Bring on final year!!
