About Me

Hi, my name is Lou and I am an Edinburgh mum of three. Thank you for stopping by. I have one patient husband and one crazy black Labrador. My children are scattered all over the world and I love travelling and exploring.

I enjoy learning about social media and it is a fabulous way to stay in touch with the millennials and stay up to date with technology.

At my happiest with a camera.

I am an amateur photographer who enjoys sharing Scotland, especially Edinburgh on Shutterstock. More of my portfolio here, click Shutterstock.

My background is in the hotel industry and my favourite job was in Walt Disney World in Florida as a cultural representative for the United Kingdom. I also started a franchise for a local family magazine and ran this for 7 years. I gained great experience in the world of publishing and I use this today in my blogging.

Likes: chocolate eclairs, people, gin and tonic, cashmere socks, swimming and yoga.

Dislikes: bad manners, gluten, feeling cold, rudeness and choosing home furnishings.

I hope you enjoy my blogs and thank you for reading this far. I am trying to build up my film stock on Pond 5 and you can take a peak here: Pond 5
