red hair in the wind

Diary | Things You Already Knew…

… IF you’ve been following me on Instagram stories, that is.

Because, yeah, I’m still talking about that. Probably will be for a while, actually. Sorry about that. If you’re already following me on Instagram, then you can move right along: nothing to see here. If you’re NOT, however, this post is for you, because you won’t know about…


My windy day in North Berwick

You soon WILL know about this, mind you, because it’s the subject of tomorrow’s post, but, for now, here’s a photo of my hair in its natural habitat. Thank God I bought that Tangle Teezer, huh?

You also won’t know about…

sunset over Scotland

That amazing sunset we had on Monday night

I always feel like sunsets are amazing to experience, but totally boring to talk about or post photos of. I think this one was worth remembering, though, which is why I hung out of the bathroom window to get this photo JUST FOR YOU, people. Just for you.

You also missed…

car selfie

All of those car selfies I keep taking

We’ve been out and about a fair bit this week, and I’ve been most diligent in my documenting of our excursions. Unfortunately, most of those videos are just of me sitting in the car, but there are also quite a few uboxings. Like…

Zara box

My latest Zara delivery

Well, it wouldn’t be my Instagram without at least one video of me opening some kind of box, would it? I’m going to be an absolute asshole about this one, and keep you in suspense as to what was actually in this one, because I’m planning to take some outfit shots, and there’s not much point in posting the same thing twice, is there? Obviously if you follow my Instagram Stories, you’ve already seen it, in which case I’m going to make like JK Rowling¬†and ask you to #KEEPTHESECRETS. I’m also going to ask you to kindly lower your expectations here, because this is Zara we’re talking about, not Harry Potter

One thing I won’t keep you in suspense over, however, is…

Nike Free Run in black and white

My new running shoes

They’re really springy and bouncy, and, well, totally uninteresting to look at, but also kind of awesome, really. ¬†So that’s nice.

How was your week?


  • Hi Amber, that’s a stunning sunset. I love the colours. xx

    Ooh be interested to know how you get on with the Nikes, I tried them and while I love the feeling of running in them I ended up with painful arches when running. Mind you I am probably twice as heavy as you and maybe they aren’t meant for running elephants

    The Nikes may not be very interesting to look at, but the composition of that photo is your usual outstanding work. I like the repeating theme of black and white (shoes, bed frame against background, clothes). And, yes, the sunset was worth posting!

    Thanks for doing these roundups. I don’t use Instagam, so it’s good to see what I’m missing out on over there!

    I don’t use Instagram either, so I appreciate the round up.
