I’ve just returned from a week in Edinburgh, which was a birthday present from my boyfriend.
Having been to Edinburgh before, I knew exactly where to head for the best shops!
Starting with some of the Vintage shops, the best area is Grassmarket where most of the vintage shops lie. One of the biggest and my favourite to rummage around in being Armstrongs. It’s like an Aladdin’s cave in there with the place decorated with all sorts of wonderful vintage items! I especially like the back room full of women’s clothes, it has sections for everything from theatrical and evening to lingerie…. There’s also a big men’s room, which has loads of cool military jackets.
Also nearby is the Barnados vintage shop, Herman Brown and Godiva.

Andrea Garland Lip balmAndrea Garland Lip Balm Collection
What a fab range of ethically inspired, vintage packaged beauties!
I found a link to these by chance whilst taking a look at the ASOS site and what a find!
The range is full of ethical, natural and organic beauty balms for face, lips and body all packaged in one of a kind vintage trinkets and bottles. The packaging looks amazing! What makes it even better is that being vintage they are all unique so no chance of having the same one as anyone else!
The range is a dream for ethically minded shoppers not wanting to compromise on the appearance of their beauty finds. Also, what makes them even better is the fact that there are refills available for them which not only help the environment but also your purse as they are cheaper than buying new ones each time!
All the ingredients are sourced from ethical suppliers and a number of the ingredients are organic.
Most importantly it states on her website that no ingredient or product has been tested on any bunnies!
I can’t wait to place my first order and give them a try, I’ll let you know how I get on!
