Last weekend of Lumen

If you have not checked out Lumen yet, this weekend is your last chance. The special light and sound installations around Edinburgh city centre are on between 5pm and 10.30pm. Visit the 'Serenity Gardens' at St Andrew Square, the 'Moments Lane' in Assembly Rooms Lane and the 'Ocean of Light' at The Mound precinct. Read more about the event here.



Last day of the Walker Slater Pop-up Sale Shop

Both Mr Enthusiast and myself are massive Walker Slater fans so we are sad to see the Walker Slater Pop-up Sale Store closing its doors at Victoria Street. One of our favourite finds from there is a stylish and summery linen jacket for Mr Enthusiast which served us well last October in Italy. The good news: this weekend there will be further markdowns at the Walker Slater Sale Shop on the already discounted tweeds, clothing and accessories. Don't miss such bargain!



Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all Mums! If you're in need of some last minute present ideas, here are our favourite picks:

  • Mademoiselle Macaron has some lovely Mother's Day macarons which you can order online (last orders on Friday) or pick them up in the store in person.
  • If your Mum is lucky enough to live in the catchment area of Mud Urban Flowers,  you can order some blooms online. Wish they would deliver to EH11 too!
  • Why not take out your Mum for a special afternoon tea? Our favourite picks include the classic Balmoral experience, Milk Cafe at Jupiter Artland, Peacock Alley at the beautiful Waldorf Astoria and the Restoration Yard at Dalkeith Country Park.


Have a nice weekend!
