Lets Just Be Fabulous For The Day

Sometimes you just need a day of being absolutely fabulous!

Straight out of the Ab Fab film on the Friday night, I headed through to Edinburgh the next day to play at being the most fabulous for the day!

And where do most fabulous people start their Saturday adventures, the bar at the top of Harvey Nichols of course!

I had headed through to spend the day with my sister and we decided we were just going to have a 'treat yo'self' day. We started off going to see a beautiful exhibition all about Impressionism and it was  just beautiful to wander around and take it all in.

Then we headed to the iconic Harvey Nichols to play at being ladies who lunch for the afternoon!

We climbed up to the top floor were foodie heaven awaits you. As it was a Saturday afternoon we struggled to get a table straight away, but that didn't matter as we decided to relax in the bar. We popped a bottle of fizz and sank back into the relaxing atmosphere, catching-up and watching the various Hen-Do's and birthday parties that ordered rainbows of different cocktails.

But what to wear for a weekend of bubble and fabulousness...?

I'd spied this Zara jacket back in the shops when it first came out, months and months and months ago, and I had been dreaming of it ever since. When my birthday rolled around and I was taken on a birthday shopping trip I just have to have it! Although it's the jacket that everyone and there mother has got I still love it - and sometimes it's actually quite fun to wander down the street, or scroll through instagram, and see how other have styled it!

Pop on a pair of jeans and crisp white top and that's all you need! This top has fast become one of my favourites! I just adore the cut, it's relaxed, but also perfectly tailored and looks like a dream. A hat, obvs, because dahling, why not. I also love this Michael Kors bag that I was treated to on holiday. The colour is me all over and I'm also such a fan of the simple, but also statement style of it - love it.

Soon though, our table at the Fourth Floor Brasserie was ready and we sashayed up, more fizz following.

The Fourth Floor Brasserie is just the loveliest place to sit and while away the afternoon over good food. It's a stunning light, bright and airy space with the most beautiful views over the gorgeous city. You can't beat the amazing vista. And one of the best bits is just the amazing buzz about the place, everyone is just happy to be there and having a wee treat of a Saturday afternoon.

Surprisingly the food wasn't too expensive at all either! You could go for two courses for £18 or 3 for £22. We had 3, of course.

To start I went for the Ratatouille tart, hallomi and pesto - delicious.

The food was all wonderfully presented, just a feast for the eyes! It was beautifully simple, but also showing the skill and flair of the chefs, with delicious ingredients coming together perfectly. It was all amazingly tasty and stunning simplicity ruled the menu.

For main it was the Sea bass, chick peas, chorizo, mixed peppers, basil and sherry vinegar - a dream!

The food was absolutely fabulous and just what we needed for lunchtime. The whole meal was just so relaxing, it was just bliss and the perfect atmosphere. You also feel quite glamourous and almost as though you're at an exclusive venue, dining in the sky along with the elite and a glass of fizz. It's all about understated elegance and just the loveliest.

Pudding definitely led to a whole lot of oooohs and ahhhhs - Fourth Floor chocolate cookie and milk ice cream - I know right!

It's just such a cute playful dessert that was so exciting when it arrived! It was a lovely contrast to the simpler style of dishes we'd had early, just such a fun way to finish an amazing lunch! The giant oreo style cookie and kids-look milkshake was chocolate heaven and a sweet-tooths dream! It was the adult version of a kids fun pudding, but the adult version that was rich and flavoursome.

We had such a lovely girls day totally treating ourselves - as one should every now and again! I'd definitely head back up to the clouds and dine in style again!
