Outfit - Let Me Put You On Hold

     I've taken a break from classic animated Disney this week, to do an outfit inspired by another Marvel character. I did Captain America a few months ago, and this time I've chosen Black Widow - so obviously, all black items were called for! I tried to put together something that was functional and practical, for a superhero as she is, but still a little bit sexy, so this loose top and comfy leggings are easy to move around in, but the sheer stripes with the bralette underneath, and leather effect are a little more sultry. I chose flat boots rather than heels, again for practicality, and the leather jacket ties in to her whole aesthetic as well. The jewellery is also minimal, so nothing gets in the way, with silver accents to tone in, and I chose the arrow head necklace since she wears something similar in The Winter Soldier, a nod to Hawkeye. My hair is styled after that film too, with the centre parting (yes I know, it's not dead centre or straight!), as was the makeup, with subtle eyeshadow and a nude lip.

Pentlands Glencorse View | Hiking Edinburgh

     Another sunny day means another day trip to go hiking or walking! To be honest, the weather has gotten cloudier in the last week or so, but there's still been warm, dry days to spend outside. I headed back to the Pentlands again at the weekend (having been a couple of months back), taking a friend with me who hadn't been before. We weren't out to do a huge, tough hike, so I researched a route that was fairly easy, taking just an hour or two to walk, with minimal ascent, but where we could still get some good views, so we settled on the Glencorse Reservoir Walk. You can just explore the Pentlands without following a specific route, but we had time limitations to consider!

Holyrood Palace Garden Party

     Well, it's not every day you get to say you had tea with the Queen, is it? Alright, I didn't actually have tea with the Queen, I didn't meet her at all actually, but I did get to attend the Royal Garden Party at Holyrood Palace this year, which is pretty fancy, right? A few thousand people get invited to it every year, most of them nominated by the 'Lord Lieutenant' for their area, which is basically the Queen's representative there. In our area, that would be one of my parents' neighbours, so others friends of theirs have gone in previous years, and it was my parents, plus another couple in the valley, who got invited this year, and I got to go along with them. I'm not a massive fan of the Royals, but I don't hate them either, so I mostly just wanted to go for the experience, as I likely won't get such a chance again.
