Dresses & Docs



Dresses & Docs: the summer must haves. I don't exactly remember when docs became a huge thing again but now I can't step foot into Topshop without seeing every single girl wearing them. The 'it' thing used to be jeans and a nice top but now it seems like dresses and docs have taken over (or at least it has here in Edinburgh). So I thought it was only appropriate to share some of my favourite summer dresses.

A trip to the Scottish Borders





Recently my boyfriend took me on a day trip around the Scottish borders. For someone who's lived in Scotland for years now, the borders aren't a place I would usually explore. The weather was typical of Scottish weather: wet, rainy and grey. It made for some atmospheric shots though I must admit (the last picture looks like a car advert lol!). So I thought I'd share some pictures from my road trip and would definitely recommend going down to the borders for a day.

The best Edinburgh Brunch: Papii


Hi lovelies,

I want to start a new section on my blog where I talk about my favourite food & drink places in Edinburgh. To kick start this little section I'm talking about one of my favourite brunch spots. This is not an unheard of or uncommon brunch spot in Edinburgh - they're actually quite famous for their waffles.

Papii is a tiny little cafe just off George street, on Hanover street. If you go on the weekend or peak times you might have to wait for a table, especially over the Fringe! For Edinburgh Papii is a super affordable, cheap cafe with amazing portion sizes. My first thought was actually about how many Strawberries I got with my waffles - almost an entire punnet. Their menu is all over their wall and they have a good range of brunch food and sandwiches.

Definitely a must try for Edinburgh brunch.

Banana Bread


Hi lovelies,
Today I'm sharing with you my go-to recipe for banana bread. I am always posting pics of this on my Instagram stories and in my 'what I eat in a day' videos on YouTube. So I thought I would share with you this super simple banana bread recipe. I always like to change it up, I make it on its own or sometimes I add frozen raspberries, blueberries, anything I feel like. My boyfriend is gluten free and I eat plant based so this recipe is super easy to switch out the 'normal' ingredients for your substitutes. 



Ingredients:
  • 150g butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons milk (add more if you think needs more)

Method:

Melt your butter in a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, eggs and mashed banana and stir till combined. Sift in the flour and baking powder. Dissolve baking soda in the milk and add to the bowl. Beat until all ingredients combined. Pour mixture into a baking paper lined tin of your choice.
Bake at 180°C for 45-55 minutes, or until it is fully cooked. Leave to cool down before slicing.



If you bake this yourself make sure to tag me on instagram @emmyrosam.

Stockbridge Markets | Edinburgh


The markets in Edinburgh are a big hit. Stockbridge markets happen every Sunday featuring food and gifts from many local businesses you will find around the capital. It is always packed and full of people, good vibes and good food.

Every time I go I always see something new I haven't seen before. On my walk home from a Sunday yoga class I decided to pop into the markets with my mum for a had to obviously get a crepe as well).  If you find yourself in Edinburgh on a Sunday you definitely need to check out the markets. Most places are cash only - so be prepared.

Best Hairdressers in Edinburgh

I have been living in Edinburgh for 4 years now and have been getting my hair coloured for years. Anybody who knows me knows how precious my hair is to me and how I don't trust many with it, even going over a year without a cut or dye because I don't have a hair stylist I trust enough. When I moved to Edinburgh I did a lot of research and ended up going to a large chain we have here in the city and honestly it was over priced and overrated. I was never satisfied and would be left hundreds short. I vividly remember going to this large chain once, spending 5 hours in the chair and coming out with my hair looking the exact same when I wanted to go blonder. Super unsatisfied.

I decided to finally find a new salon when I dyed my hair pink myself. It was fading and I was wanting to get rid of it, and then I found Mosko. I popped in and they said it might take more than one session to lift it but miraculously he got it all out in one. I was back to being golden and over the moon with the styling.



Fast forward a year later to today and I am just out of my recent appointment with Kieran. I have never felt more like myself and I am over the moon. Feel like the ashy blonde princess I wanted to be. Kieran understand and knows how busy I am so my hair is always done so it isn't high maintenance as I don't have loads of free time to regularly get it done. I am constantly receiving endless compliments on my hair and hands down Mosko Hair is the best hairdressers in Edinburgh.


All my friends, my siblings and even my mum goes there now. The prices are so reasonable and they even do student discount. If you're looking for a new hairdressers would definitely recommend any more.
