Blog Giveaway!


If you already follow me on Twitter, you will know that I recently celebrated hitting the 500 followers mark. This is an achievement that I am very proud of, as it means my little blog is reaching more and more of you lovely people!

Coincidently, over the last few weeks I had been thinking about running a giveaway on here for the first time; offering one of my loyal readers a prize seemed like the perfect way to say thank you for visiting and supporting my blog... So I decided to join the two together, and run my first blog giveaway to celebrate achieving my Twitter target!

When it came to the giveaway prize, I had to have a good long think about what I wanted to offer... The answer was pretty simple in the end - who doesn't love a little beauty bundle?

Sightseeing in Glasgow

As many of you will know, Mr Maggie May and I recently enjoyed a lovely weekend in Glasgow - you might have read my post about our incredible meal on the Friday night, or ogled all the pictures I posted on Instagram. Well we had a pretty amazing day on the Saturday and I have wanted to share the details with you all for ages - finally, here they are...

We woke up early so we could fill up with breakfast before our big day ahead. Having slurped lots of coffee (nursing a slightly fuzzy head from the night before, ahem) I dashed off to the south of the city for a morning of meetings, leaving Mr MM to explore. He managed to get a few nice snaps along the way.

How to Dress Like the Bond Girls in Spectre


I finally went to see the new James Bond film Spectre last night, and I am pleased to say it did not disappoint; there were car chases, martinis, nasty fights, beautiful dresses, helicopters and of course, Daniel Craig looking wonderful. Although not quite as good as Skyfall in my opinion, it was still excellent and I would definitely recommend seeing it.

One of the best highlights for me was the wardrobe in this film; all of the characters' outfits were sharp, sophisticated and perfectly suited to their roles, and it is clear that there was a lot of thought put into the design from the start. Those of you who follow me on Twitter will have already seen me raving about how I want Léa Seydoux's stylist... She looked effortlessly chic throughout (to be fair, she is Parisian), and I was very impressed with the team's choices.

Determined to try and capture a few of my favourite looks from the film, I've hunted down some lookalike pieces, as well as some of the exact items worn in the film by Léa, who played the role of Dr Madeleine Swann, and also Naomie Harris, who played the role of Eve Moneypenny. Now we can all feel like Bond girls - just grab me a dirty martini and we're good to go...
