February Instagram Review

Hello!

We apologise for the lack of posts the past couple of weeks, we have both been extremely busy and we are wondering how it is March?? Already?! In our busy lives we did manage to fit in a Blonde Edit trip to Amsterdam.  It was lovely to have a weekend away with friends, wander the pretty streets and boutiques of Amsterdam, and fit in tasting some of the local delicacies (mainly Heineken).  We will save our stories for a later post dedicated to the Amsterdam trip! In the mean time here is a round up of our favourite February Instagram posts.

As you can see our February consisted of lots of grey and black – and thankfully we are not talking about the Scottish weather.  In fact we were lucky to have lots of sunny and crisp winter days but our love for grey and black outfits can not be changed by the sunny weather.  Another running theme in February was Asian food.  We had a few Blonde Edit dinners and we both happened to cook asian noodle recipes!

One of my favourite mornings in February was a Saturday.  We both normally work Saturdays so having a Saturday off is always going to be memorable.  This particular morning I woke up and it was a miserable day outside (which I was secretly happy about).  What to do with a Saturday off? Well, I stayed in my dressing gown until midday and flicked through the beautiful pages of my Kinfolk magazine.  This may sound boring but the magazine had been sitting, unread, on the table for nearly a month and I was so busy I hadn’t even picked it up.  Sitting in my dressing gown, reading, with a cup of lemon water and fresh fruit was the perfect Saturday morning.  It is the simple things!

We are hoping March consists of more mornings like this!  And hopefully more Asian food… Can you recommend any recipes?  Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram @theblondeedit1 so you can keep up to date with our daily lives.

Cosy & Other Stories Jumpers

Hello Readers!

Well another post about cosy clothes is definitely necessary! This week has been freezing here with some frost and a scattering of snow so we are starting to feel a little bit more Christmassy. We are both in love with these comfy knitted & Other Stories Jumpers – a favourite throw on for a lazy Sunday afternoon.  Fi’s jumper (the amazing neon colour) is last season and not available anymore *sad face*.  But Ollie’s is still available online at & Other Stories and right on trend with the monochrome design.  Both the jumpers are a lovely chunky knit and feel really good quality but still very affordable!

This time of year is so difficult to avoid spending loads of money! Not only have we gone wild buying friends and family Christmas presents but we are constantly being tempted by all the pre-Christmas promotions in the shops just now!!  The shopping addiction is not be helped in anyway.  So we have lots of new purchases to show you soon.  But for now we must try and avoid the shops (until the January sales).

Hope the Christmas shopping is going well and and everyone is starting to get in the festive mood!!!

Love Fi and Ollie
