I was away on a press trip most of last week in Edinburgh and Lothians for my digital magazine Twinkle Style & Travel Magazine. I ate great food, stayed in great places and had some spa pampering. Subscribe to the magazine for the upcoming reviews of my time away. I couldn’t not share a little sneak peak with you here though.

I also discovered a great singer last week on YouTube. I was watching one of Fleur de Force’s vlogs and she used this brilliant track called Icing by Charity Vance in the background. I’ve popped the actual music video above so you can check her out. She wrote this song in her 10th grade English class about her best friend. I can’t believe i’ve only just come across her now.

It was my husband’s birthday last week too, so I ate lots of nice things; but still managed to loose 1lb. The 5:2 diet rocks!
