One of our favourite artists is having an exhibition at one of our favourite Edinburgh galleries, The Red Door Gallery. It opens next Thursday and we're very excited about seeing all the new work Mina has made for it. Pop along if you get the chance..
This delicious looking cupcake made by Candy Cupcake was waiting on the desk  for me this morning. I had to resist the temptation to devour it straight away. Candy cupcake is run by lovely Elaine and is just round the corner from us at 92 Marchmont Crescent. Check out their fantastic range of cakes and other delicious things!
