Since moving to Edinburgh, I have tried to make a conscious effort to buy from independent shops wherever I can. I think there is something lovely about supporting a family-run or indie company, who possibly need your custom the most. You don’t have to look far in Edinburgh to find independent shops, markets, boutiques and cafes- and often you can feel real gems that you simple can’t get in huge corporate companies. Here are a few of my top recommendations to suit the coffee drinker, interior home shopper and art fanatic.
With international women’s day taking place earlier this week, I wanted to highlight some female figures and organisations who are particularly inspirational to me. We have come so far in the last couple of years in getting equal rights to men but we still have such a long way to go. As mentioned in a previous post, I think women supporting other women is so important- we should celebrate each others achievements and lift each other up.
