LookS: Sophia's wedding at Lenoxlove House!

The wedding weekend in Edinburgh began with my journey on the Wear It Pink Day and my good friend Sophia got married at Lennoxlove House, in the outskirts of Edinburgh and more towards East Lothian, the day after. Sitting on a bench watching the autumn colours of leaves and trees, I found Edinburgh to be a beautiful city with a great deal of calmness and serenity. There seemed to be a romantic spell dancing in the air as lovers with intertwined hands strolled past glowing with affection for each other in this lovely Scottish city.

But having lived in London most of my life, it was the first time I ventured into Scotland and realised once more, that....you can take the girl out of London, but you can't take London out of the girl! It began when I sat on a plane full of people wrapped up in woolly jumpers and brown flat hiking shoes........I looked down at my almond-toed bright purple suede heels and full length pink maxi dress, and I started to weigh the number of pretty things ag…

LookS: Granny chic for Franklin Tree.....and the Pink travel Day!

Welcome back to Walking in May and I hope you like the new polka-dot look!

So the end result is a blog that looks more crazy, but somehow more organised with tabs to flip through.....so feel free to stroll through!
Now lets catch up on some things I mentioned in my previous posts....first up is the photoshoot I did for Franklin Tree (for those who have missed my previous post; Franklin Tree is a vintage boutique on Asos Marketplace and Etsy). It was not something planned but rather something that happened by chance....as it so happened some of our friends at Franklin Tree needed a model for their new range of necklaces, and I happened to be free on that day. So it was more of a quickly get changed, do your make-up and lets take some photos sort of afternoon.....but nevertheless it was a fun way to spend some time on a cold day!

Irresistibly sweet because its life...and there is no take two!

Greetings my darlings! I am safely back from a weekend in Edinburgh celebrating my good friend Sophia's wedding....of course more to come about that event in the following post! But first I would like to thank the lovely Wendy from the ~Butterfly Balcony~ for passing on the "Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award" to me!! As part of the rules, acceptance of this award means that I will have to reveal 7 random facts about myself......so by the end of this post you might come to the conclusion that I am utterly barmy (ie. mad)! That could well be possible, as I tend to live with the idea that life might not give second chances!

Anyway...here's the 7 random facts about me:
1. When people ask me where I am from, I either ask them 'what do you mean?' or I would reply along the lines of 'that is not an easy question to answer!' My ancestors may have been from China a long time ago, but they were from a minority tribe called the Hakka, and my parents were born in Ma…
