My trip to Edinburgh! (Reviews)

I was so excited for my first ever trip to Edinburgh for my friend's wedding, so I was keen to see as much as the city as possible over the weekend.

There is so much to do in this city and with so little time I made sure to visit some of the stores and here were my favourites:-

Jenners on Princes Street is the department store to visit in Edinburgh. I was wowed by the store's striking architectural features and inside was no different, six floors of fashion brands, designers, cosmetics, home interiors and portraits to just name a few.

There is also a fab food hall but unfortunately I didn't have time to try it, definitely worth a visit next time!

 We picked up this lovely pink gingham wrapping paper in Jenners for the wedding couple's gift!

 I loved this display of cute tartan accessories in Jenners

Centotre is an Italian restaurant in George Street another beautiful grand entrance and interior where we had breakfast and what a delight!

 Hot chocolate at Centotre

I chose hot chocolate, waffles, fruit and cream whilst my boyfriend went for bacon and waffles and syrup. Of course I tried some of his, both were delicious! And the service was good too. We ended up in Centotre twice because the breakfast was so good!

 Waffles and berries...yum!

My other favourite place was Bibi's Bakery on Hanover Street. The shop was filled with cupcakes and tiered wedding cakes it was a cake fiend's dream! 


 Cupcakes galore!

I couldn't resist popping into I Love Candy, an old fashioned vintage store of Scottish sweets. I was mesmerised by all the sweeties from bonbons to sugared sticks to refreshers there was every type of sweet you could think of!

 
 Display stands in I Love Candy...spoilt for choice!
