NEW BLOG POST: A girls' weekend in Fayence, France
A photo diary of a weekend in the most beautifully French villa just outside Fayence with the most wonderful group of girls. This was in fact a hen weekend but not as we know them…
NEW BLOG POST: Elusive summer staples sourced
There are two things I struggle with every single year – shorts and the perfect flat sandals. And somehow, right at the start of June, I managed to nail them both...

A couple of grown up days away in my most favourite country to celebrate the impending nuptials of my Nancy
P.s. I am OBSESSED with hair bands now, it’s my new thing. (I am a child of the 80’s after all).

NEW BLOG POST: The next level basket bag
My love of basket bags is no secret that is for sure. And this baby has absolutely stolen my heart. She is from Casa de Vera, handcrafted in Venezuela, and I think she really speaks for herself… that fringing is just everything.
You know that saying, ‘Why be yourself when you can beBeyoncé’? Well, in the world of basket bags, she is Beyoncé...
NEW BLOG POST: Simple ways to embrace an outdoor life
I have never spent so much time outdoors as I have in this past month. And what I have realised is perhaps not exactly groundbreaking but, boy, the outdoors is so good for your soul. Sunshine helps for sure but that fresh air literally breathes life into you. So here are some super simple tricks I am using right now to encourage myself to embrace the outdoor life even more...

A really personal (and loooong) post on the blog this week all about why I quit the day job - http://www.thankfifi.com/2018/05/why-i-quit-the-day-job/

You will find me right here, lazing in the sun, amongst a few of my favourite things - the perfect tortoiseshell sunnies from Powder, a new bag which is not a basket (I repeat, NOT a basket), oranges, that towel that looks like a rug and, just out of shot on the shady side, chubby baby legs...
NEW BLOG POST: Five things making me happy right now
Clue: one of them might be these gingham beauties...
Boden gingham pumps - http://rstyle.me/iA-n/c4ujfzm5ue_
This is why I workout...
That right there is dessert for two - a Black Forest baked alaska at The Shore and if you haven’t had one yet then you, my friend, are missing out...
As a prequel, you know when you go to a restaurant and the menu is so great that you literally cannot see past the starters? Mussels, scallops, carpaccio, mac’n’cheese, pate, charred beets... So you just go ahead and order them all? Tell me it’s not just me?
Have a look through the gallery to see this beauty of a restaurant (think wooden wave beams, loads of white marble, brass accents and a view to top it off) - just over the water in North Queensferry so not far for a day trip like I did with my mama yesterday OR the perfect stop off en route to St.Andrews or Elie, one of my fav wee beaches on the East coast
NEW BLOG POST: Why I quit the day job
Grab a cup of tea - it's a long one...
NEW BLOG POST: Something old, something new, something blue
Just me hanging out in all my old clothes under a tree. (Apart from the bag, she's new). And why I'm getting invites to my own party...
On backorder : more days like this please... Family cuddles on probably the best towel in the whole wide world (to me anyway) - it looks a lot like my family room vintage rug don’t you think? Slowtide Europe

NEW BLOG POST: Why you need more baskets in your life
As if I need a reason to justify more baskets in my life… But these baskets from TK Maxx and Homesense make a difference – yeah they look great but they are also part of the Sustainable Trade Project in Uganda throught which the sale of two baskets is enough to cover one child’s schooling for a term.
Check out the blog post to see how I styled them in two different rooms...
So Saturday started out pretty awesome... Long dog walk with the boy tribe in the country sun under the blossoms
Wearing new pieces from Rheign which I absolutely love - the fabric is so nice and, I’m not really sure how to describe it but, thick (if you wear a lot of activewear you’ll know what I mean!)
NEW BLOG POST: Eternal optimism
You guys, my closet is overrun with summer dresses right now. I cannot stop buying them. Perhaps I am an eternal optimist? I mean, honestly, in Scotland we have had approximately two sundress appropriate days this year…

NEW BLOG POST: The new Pinterest worthy store to put on your Glasgow wishlist - Bluebellgray
Stepping past pots of lavender, placing a hand on the giant pink handle and opening that door to Bluebellgray is not really just ‘shopping’, not as we know it, it is an experience; immersing yourself in a world of colour and interiors inspiration and you better have your phone in your hand because you are gonna want to take pictures…
NEW BLOG POST: The new shape of denim - high street road test part IV
The final instalment in the road test comes in the shape of these high rise beat up babes from Gap...
It’s that time of year when the streets look so pretty you’ll swallow your shame and ask a complete stranger to take your photo...

NEW BLOG POST: New kicks
Seems I spend half my life on the run these day. So I suppose you could say that these new FitFlop uberknit sneakers are my perfect match...
NEW BLOG POST: Le Taos, Tignes - New Mexico luxe in the Alps
Take a walk with me into Le Taos, Groupe Montagnettes...
Congrats Fi and the whole Bluebellgray team 💕
The new concept store opens this Saturday in Hyndland and yesterday I had a sneak peek. Spoiler : it’s incredible.
A beautiful space with so many inspiring things (think incredible original art, cushions, bedding, fabric, Bluebellgray and beyond), attention to detail (like these beaut tiles and that neon sign!), a kids interiors corner that I totally wasn’t expecting but was of course won over by (may have bought a rainbow and a crocodile) and the most beautiful staff you could hope to meet (love them all)

NEW BLOG POST: A facelift
Welcome back. It seems somehow apt that with another birthday passing I might start thinking about a little facelift...
M o r n i n g s 💕 Simple starts with cuddles in bed in our everyday whites Fantasie - the best part of the day is this special morning moment, before we get dressed, when his whole face lights up just to see me again
Perfect white base for the day right now is this new Fusion white set - super comfortable and soft the whole day long. Also, it turns out big pants are awesome. Who knew? I actually received matching regular pants and the super high ones but I'm loving the retro fit of these (super forgiving on the mum tum!) #fantasie #fantasielingerie #fusion #ss18 #ad

NEW BLOG POST: When spring won't wait
Or, more accurately, when I won’t wait for spring. Because this dress, and the neckline on this dress and the super flattering waist and the length and the sleeves (which it was too cold to even photograph) – well, it’s just everything...

NEW BLOG POST: Scottish minibreaking - North Berwick
Where to stay, what to do and where to eat...
Go to the beach in spring they said. It will be beautiful they said. Cue forty five mile per hour winds (aka gale force), hail, snow, sun, sub zero temperatures, colossal waves and sand that whips your face like a brutal dermabrasion. But beautiful it was nonetheless…

NEW BLOG POST : Spring greens http://www.thankfifi.com/2018/03/aspinal-mini-hat-box-bag-green/
Somehow pink and green together is just inherently good. It started with my plaster pink walls flanked by green leafy things... Not a huge leap then to imagine that this sage green Aspinal of London mini hat box bag rather won me over the moment she crossed my body atop my pink trench of the moment...

NEW BLOG POST: Some thoughts on warmth
Today, at least 4 million households are living in fuel poverty across the UK with many forced to choose whether to ‘heat or eat’. Our Power, a green, non-profit energy company, have launched their +Impact tariff - every home that switches will help a fuel-poor household heat their home for an extra 54 days and that could be life changing...
Take a look at the +Impact tariff here - http://bit.ly/IMPACT-thankfifi
M u m s ❤️ Spent the day yesterday maxing out Glasgow Fort with my own amazing mama ahead of Mother’s Day this Sunday - lunch, matching pedis and, yeah, all the shopping... • She helps me every day more than you know and I love her so much for that • You can meet her in my IG stories as well as all we got up to but she’s not in this pic because, you guessed it, she took it 🙌🏻

W i n t e r S k i n 🌿 Snowed in and giving my winter face a treat with Alex Carro Skincare Face Oil, literally the ONLY skin product I ever tried and truly loved right away... • My skin routine was always super basic before now to be honest but this stuff, this stuff smells like a spa on your face and after using it for 3 months my skin was the best it had ever been so I’m stoked to partner with this gorgeous brand again • Ad. • I’m actually trying a whole new routine recommended by a top facialist and I can’t wait to share it with you once I’ve tested it for a while - but I’m bringing this one to the table all by myself...
