My Free Boots Beauty Haul

I love Clinique! You only have to take one glance at my blog to work that out. When I read the most recent post by TiggyPoes and Flutterbys about the Clinique Bonus Time event at Boots I had to go. If there is anything I love more than Clinique it is free Clinique products. Imagine my surprise and absolute glee to find out that there is also a Triple Points and the Big Beauty Event going on. It was like all the stars had aligned. They do say everything comes in 3's.

Isle of lewis and HebCelt

Summer is the time for sun, sea and festivals. Me? I went north to the Isle of Lewis for the Hebridean and Celtic festival in Stornoway so it was more like rain, mud and music but nonetheless it was a great week away. Set on the grounds of Lews Castle the festival had something for everyone.

Trip to the States #1 Seeing the Sights

When work offers you the chance to go on a week long course to New Jersey you do not say no to that! Most importantly when you find out your hotel is located a mere 50-minute train journey to NYC, you go!! So off I went! Oh did I mention it was ALL EXPENSES PAID.

Ladies Who Lab #2 Alice

I did promise a monthly section about females who have a career or passion for science as a way of inspiring younger girls into the field. Being a busy scientist I missed last months but now I am on track. This month is Alice; a lady who labs in the same place as I. She is the same Alice from the curry fundraiser that you can read about here. Introduction over and with no further ado, Alice!

The Readers-The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor

Because I am not busy enough what with the PhD and all that I decided to join a book club. I say decided, when Elanor asked me to join hers I jumped at the chance. I was a late comer so the first book for me was The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor. DISCLAIMER: I have never watched The Walking Dead…not even 1 minute of the show.

The Kailyard by Nick Nairn: Review

As some of you might know I recently visited Doubletree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro for a work summer school. Work trips might sound boring but getting the chance to dine in a Nick Nairn restaurant for 4 nights, all expenses paid, is definitely something to get excited about!

June Round-up

June has been a really busy month full of food and travelling so I must apologise for not blogging as frequently as I normally do. The past 30 days has featured hard work, free food from the lovely Kailyard by Nick Nairn and a free week long stay in the states!
