I've been so bad for not updating bellamalone.com but now that the days are getting longer and brighter I can start shooting outfits again. Thank god winter is nearly over it was one of the longest ever and Edinburgh has been absolutely freezing for months now. It's scary to think I'm close to finishing second year, it feels like yesterday that I moved to Scotland and now my whole life is here.

I hope you all have an amazing valentines day whatever you're doing.

Happy New Years!

It feels like months since I've last posted, probably because it has been months.
I just about finished off my uni deadlines at the start of  December and quickly started celebrating with  my flatmates. I had an amazing 21st (Though I might not remember it all) and flew home to Belfast for two weeks to spend Christmas with my fam.

Leaving Edinburgh after 4 straight months was harder than I thought but after a few days I was a Belfast girl again.
 I got back to Edinburgh just in time for Hogmanay and had an incredible night with my closest friends.To start the new year my best gals and I headed up to the highlands to stay in a glamping pod literally in the middle of nowhere which was as fun as it sounds. My love for Scotland has only strengthened after seeing how stunning the highlands are.

I now have a few days to adjust to being back and to mentally prepare myself for going back to uni.
Wish me luck!

The Boux Diaries

What a mad few weeks. 
Uni hit my flatmates and I like a tonne of bricks and we're trying to get everything done because the deadlines are creepin up on us like crazy. 
It literally feels like last week when we moved in but it's nearly been three months and Christmas is coming. 

I went to London for the Boux Avenue A/W 16 collection party and had such an amazing time. 
I met some of my fellow student ambassadors and ended up having the best night ever with them. 
I also met Theo Paphitis and became an absolute fan girl.  After way too much champagne and an extensive bar crawl it was the day after and time to get back to the Burgh, I've never been so happy to see my flatmates. (Chloe got me chips to cure my hangover).

Boux kindly sent me a box every month of their beautiful pieces and I'm finally getting around to getting you some decent images of them, courtesy of my flatmate and next big photographer Adele.

Secret Edinburgh







Last week I was lucky enough to attend a blogger photo walk with 8MS and Yelp on a mission to discover Edinburgh's secret bars. Starting out at Panda and Sons we were not disappointed. A hidden gem along Queen street Panda & Sons is a beautifully designed speakeasy with a nod to a vintage barber shop. Attention to detail is everything here and the cocktails were divine. The perfect spot for an impressive date!




Next up we arrived at Hoot the Redeemer. This bars location shocked me the most. Slap bang in the middle of hangover street right next door to Bella Italia is a mysterious door that leads you to the most incredible bar. "It’s the 1950s and you are in New Orleans embracing a vintage funfair. There’s a Tarot reader ahead of you, a claw crane machine on your left, and an ice cream parlour on your right with a happy ice cream pot on the sign. No, this isn’t the beginning of a very strange dream – it’s what it’ll feel like walking into Hoot The Redeemer." This is the best description I could give you. Hoot the redeemer literally transports you to a different world. They offer alcoholic ice cream, slushies and a claw machine where you can grab your own random cocktail flavour. Also serving beer, wine and cocktails this place is something else and not easily forgotten.

The third bar we ventured to was Secret Arcade, a vodka bar. "A secret is worth sharing and so is our Secret Arcade Bar; a vodka drinker’s paradise, deep in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, but first you need to know where the Secret Arcade vodka bar is. On Cockburn Street, find the Arcade Haggis and Whiskey Bar, take a wander down the little lane next to it named Jackson’s Close and hey presto you are there. Many treats await those who venture into the Secret Arcade’s welcoming doors, as there are over 100+ vodkas to choose from!" Like the others this bar was up a tiny alleyway and through a dark door, completely hidden away. I'm a vodka girl through and through and the vodka was so good I could've had ten, not sure if that's a good or bad thing but for once I wasn't on the Glenns.




Our final stop was Under the stairs, a bar that is literally under the stairs on Merchant street in beautiful old town Edinburgh. A sophisticated bar and restaurant with good enough atmosphere and comfortable enough sofas to keep you there all night. Stepping off the cobbled streets and the warm and inviting Under the stairs with it's exposed brick and happy to help staff is the perfect way to spend a chilly night in the capital.

 Find the full walk here and enjoy the perfect guide to the hidden side of Edinburgh that's yet to be discovered.

That girl makes me want to be a better man












Happy Wednesday!

I hope you're all having a decent week so far and aren't too freezing. It's gotten absolutely baltic in Edinburgh since last week and we are refusing to put the heating on because we are poor.
The jacket I'm wearing is from www.highheelssuicide.com and I've wanted it for around 8 months so when my student loan came in that went straight in my basket.
It's not the warmest for Scottish weather but I wont get pneumonia in it if I wear a jumper under it so it's ideal. You can grab it here


As you are all probably aware Missguided.com had a 50% site wide promotion last week and I went into panic buy mode and went mad. No regrets.
I picked up this beautiful chartreuse playsuit for £22.50! You can find it here.
I also bought countless bodysuits cause I'm living in them these days.

I've just gotten a second job so I'm trying to fit uni, blogging and the sesh in between working but hopefully the content will be coming regularly.
