Creative February | Scottish Life

February was a good month and we did loads and also tried to relax a whole lot as well! The Brit and I are both pretty exhausted from work, so we had some weekends on and some weekends off. Overall I think we’ve done quite a few culture activities and I managed to really throw myself in my writing once again.

Here are ten happy things from our creative month of February in Scotland:

  • We started the month with a gorgeous dinner at El Cartel, a delicious mexican cantina in Edinburgh, for the Brit’s best friend’s birthday.
  • We attended the Nutcracker performed by a Russian ballet at the Edinburgh Playhouse with Mel and her sister. The Brit’s first classic ballet!
  • I bought a beautiful picture book about St Andrews. It’s a gorgeous love letter to the town and I’ll definitely read this to our future children to indoctrinate them as soon as possible… jk…
  • I reunited with this gorgeous fellow Canadian (pictured) who was visiting Scotland for a weekend from London. 
  • We had dinner with some friends who live just outside of St Andrews and had such a fantastic evening with them in the countryside!
  • We had a lovely food day for Valentine’s day – starting with pancakes and ending with a three-course dinner in a fancy restaurant in town.
  • That same day (between the pancakes and the dinner) we visited Dundee and it was lovely. The Brit studied there for his undergrad and we had a lot of fun playing tourists.
  • I had a Pride and Prejudice night with some girlfriends in Stirling. We started around 7.30pm on a Friday and finished around 2am, but we did it!
  • We attended the amazing concert of fellow Canuck City & Colour at the O2 Academy in Glasgow. What a superb evening it was!
  • I started pitching ideas to magazines and newspapers around Scotland and the UK. I told myself I would start pitching last year and never did, so I’m proud of myself for taking that step now!

What were you up to this February? Anything creative?xx
