FS 2016: What to Wear

With St Andrew’s Fashion Show season in full swing, having a countless number of outfit ideas is pretty important if you’re planning on hitting them all. Here are some suggestions from our Sartoriowl on the hottest looks for this season that you could sport to FS this weekend. As this isn’t a ball, we’ve opted for some different looks and there are no ball gowns in sight! Be brave at the fashion shows, the more creative you can be, the better.

Best Christmas Markets

It’s that time of year again. I know it’s early, I know we’ve only just had Halloween and Bonfire Night, but people are beginning to mention that inevitable c-word. It is quite a while away, but with deadlines and exams and last minute shopping and travelling home, it will be Christmas before we know it. And to really cash in on this festive season, towns and cities all over the country are beginning to open their Christmas markets, to lure in those people who having been waiting for Christmas since boxing day of last year. I know it is certainly too early for some (at work the other day, I made a man a coffee with a snowman on top and he looked far from impressed), but we’ve decided to round up some of the best Christmas markets for you to see before they all start getting far too busy!

Harvest Throwback: Preview

The usual Throwback Thursday that takes over the Vic every few weeks has had a makeover. This Thursday, enjoy a night out AND do something to help those less fortunate. I spoke to Ashton Squires, the resident DJ for Throwback Thursday at the Vic to find out all about Harvest Throwback, the event where the entry fee is some donated food that will be given to a local food bank!


A Conversation with Oh Comely

I caught up with Liz Ann Bennett, from the amazing print magazine Oh Comely, a “lifestyle magazine with life”. They write about a vast array of different things, with each issue having a central theme. They also feature a ton of photography and illustration in each issue, making Oh Comely Magazine a truly collectible piece of print.

Edinburgh Coffee Festival: Reviewed

Walking into the beautiful Mansfield Traquair on Saturday morning, I was hit by the most amazing smells of freshly brewed coffee. After being given free fudge on the way in (always a great way to start an event!), we were handed a map illustrating all of the different stands on offer, with information on the various events and talks running throughout the day. For the student entry price of £8 , there really was an opportunity to pack as much into your day as possible, fueled by the endless coffee samples being handed out.


New York In Photographs

As I’m not always the best with words I found myself completely stuck for ideas about what to write about New York. It’s such a well-known place. Everyone knows what New York is like, or at least has an idea of what it’s like from the hundreds of films and tv shows set there! Plus, there will be tons of students here who know New York waaaay better than I do, or could ever, being native New Yorkers themselves. I really just didn’t think I’d be able to write anything new. Instead, here are some of the photos I took from my trip that sum up the experience I had in the wonderful city.
