Meet Marmite!





















Meet our little Marmite! Well she isn't so little anymore... Born on the 7th of April 2015 the newest addition to the Verwoerd family is our 6 month old black Labrador.

You may have caught a glimpse of her cheeky face on my Instagram but I thought it was about time I introduced her officially to you guys. She is SO naughty but learning and very doting.

I honestly didn't think it was possible for me to have as much love for this little, warming, heart beating puppy as I do. She is my little angel and I will miss her like crazy when I eventually move out.

4 Years ♥




Last week my darling Robert and I celebrated 4 years together! We have had an amazing 4 years and he is absolutely my best friend. I can't wait to start the next chapter of our lives together. We just need to find slightly better jobs and the perfect little rental.

As big steak lovers we headed to the Lounge Bar at the Trout Hotel as it is the perfect combination of cosy and upmarket dining, a little effort required but no pressure. This visit was actually a little disappointing but working in hospitality I would never dare say anything (except to all you guys over the internet) because I feel bad. The service was quick but very unfriendly and unwarming and our rather expensive sirloins were over cooked. Hmm. I would still go back because every other time has been just delightful.

Where are your recommendations for fancy eats in the Lakes?

Breakfast with Marmite





Breakfast this morning with our puppy Marmite (more about her very soon). It's starting to get really cold in the North of England but the weather has been so beautiful we just have to make the most of it. I had porridge with blackberries from the garden and a little Twinings Intensely Buttermint.

My mom has just come back from Hong Kong so we are going to take Marms to the beach nearby for a walk and a catch up.

Have a lovely day!

Nasty Gal





Who doesn't love a good night out? I haven't been out in so long so here's a little throw back to my girls birthday. I'm not normally one to wear such a revealing outfit but I LOVE this dress I got a while ago from Nasty Gal.

We are going to go big for Halloween this year to make up for it, yey!

Isle of May














For our last day in Fife visiting my sister we decided to take a boat trip out to the Isle of May. It didn't take too long to get there and once you arrive you are free to roam the island.

We took a picnic for lunch and walked around the whole island to find a great private spot with amazing views over the Firth of Forth. There is an abundance of history and lots and lots of birds. Also a chance of spotting a seal or 2!

For all the info check out Anstruther Pleasure Cruises.

Kellie Castle, Fife













Spending the morning Pittenweem was followed by a little roam around the gardens of Kellie Castle with it's walled garden, free roaming hens and fruit and vegetable patch. There is also a little hut where you can purchase goodies from the garden.

The gardens are open 9 until sunset and entrance is free!
