It has been another busy week here in Edinburgh with lots of events and fun stuff in the diary. Last night I headed along to Surgeons’ Hall for a “night at the museum” style after hours party, A Scandal at Surgeon’s Hall, as part of this year’s Festival of Museums. Dressed up in my best Victorian outfit (and by that I mean a cameo necklace and a black dress), I was ready for “one last fright”. We investigated a 19th century crime scene (and solved the case – I knew all those hours of watching murder documentaries on Netflix would come in handy!), got our tarot cards read by a fortune teller, and danced away to a ceilidh. As a Scottish History graduate, I love the chance to explore museums in a different way, so the Festival of Museums is right up my street. It’s only on for one weekend, but there are events all across Scotland and you can still catch some last minute events this afternoon and evening; check out what’s on today.

On Friday evening I went along to Mademoiselle Macaron with a bunch of other blogger babes to celebrate the shop’s one year anniversary. I’m ashamed to say this was my first visit, despite having had it on my to-visit list for the last year! The macarons were top notch and I will definitely be a regular customer from now on, it’s hard not to fall a little bit in love with Mademoiselle Macaron as soon as you step in the door. There will be a full post about Mademoiselle Macaron coming soon, so keep an eye out for that if you love sweet treats.

There was also, of course, a wee bit of eating and drinking with Laura this week. You should know by now, we can’t go more than a week without going out for some food and wine! Earlier in the week we wandered up to Harajuku Kitchen for some sushi and other tasty Japanese nibbles; we’ve been here a couple of times now and it’s always lovely, would definitely recommend! One evening we also stopped off at Pickle and Custard for some cocktails but, I have to say, the cocktails were a little bit disappointing. This place seems like it would be really nice for lunch or coffee so I’ll have to head back during the daytime, but don’t think I’ll be making a return visit in the evening for cocktails. And finally, this afternoon we’re off to The Jolly Botanist for some Sunday lunch because, well, you gotta treat yo’self.


What have you been up to this week?
