today was quite wonderful. spent it shopping in the west end, then sprawling out in botanics again with my sister for a few hours discussing important things. mostly cats, tbh.
i bought wine, beer and ingredients to make a fab dinner for my papabear coming home, but it was so nice out that we just took the beer and some snacks into the garden and had a right good ol’ catchup sitting on the bench.
tonight i’m packing for my shooting trip in north berwick this weekend, and hanging with pb. we’ll probably watch a movie after i post this.
none of my cats pissed anywhere today so i’m in a good mood. i hope everyone has had a pleasant friday.

I’m having a gin and lemonade - with the Vimto ice cubes I made last week because I am a geeeenius. So delicious.

Also purchased today; this little polo neck to go with my AA Riding Pants. All I need now is the horse.
Today was really lovely. Spent it with Nadia shopping in the West End/Egg for an hour or two, then we bought lunch, rose wine, sweeties, chocolate and strawberries and sat on a blanket leisurely munching it all in Botanic Gardens. Such great weather. Bumped into serendipity man again. Always so dapper as fuck. Smiles.

Oh my god. I bought a vintage swimming costume today from Vintage Guru and it has confirmed my suspicions that me, and specifically my body, belong to an entirely different era. Absolute perfect fit. ♡

There’s a new mag in town. Libertine Magazine: “For Interested Women”
Founder and editor Debbi Evans explains:
“to redefine the ‘women’s interest’ category. In addition to luxury lifestyle content we cover tech, science and business, and celebrate high achieving maverick women for the contents of their brains, not their beds. There is no fashion or beauty content in issue 1, unless you count a piece on the semiotics of handbags. There’s nothing like it, and we’re really excited (and relieved!) to have finally got it out there.”
i will undoubtedly be picking up this issue. excellent news.

i tried to make my above-bed shelves tidier this morning and it didn’t work.
my impulse-bought vintage furniture was delivered today. i feel like such a grown-up. i will spend tomorrow moving my room around to accommodate and add all my trinkets to the dresser; but ohhh my days i adore it. agatha christie is relatively indifferent to it. as she is to most things that don’t involve chicken.

parmavioletheart asked: Your new vintage 2 piece is gorgeous!!! :) I love that colour! I might have to pay a trip to the vintage offering in scotland! Also, all your Gatsby gifs are making me so excited!! I can't wait to see it just for the aesthetics and costumes! xx
thank you! i’m making a conscious effort to brighten up my wardrobe. i literally had three items that weren’t black, and two of those were white. now there are reds and pinks, greens and yellows, and all sorts starting to peek out of the clothes rails. i’ve just never thought that colour suited me. but now i feel cheerier when i wear them. slowly but surely becoming less of a miserable bastard haha.
gatsby was terrific. after the film my friend and i could hardly articulate a feel. i cried at so many bits. a number of bits that i didn’t expect to, it was just a beautiful adaptation. i’m considering going back and seeing it in 3D, even though it’s never really appealed to me. visually it’s already pretty full-on in 2D but i intend to see it a handful more times anyway, i may as well see if it makes an impact/difference.
perfect cast is perfect, too. ❤
