Special: Highlights from the Beast from the East

Posted by

By now I’m sure we’ve all been hit by this infamous Beast from the East. Hard. And although going outside made me question all my life decisions as that bitter cold blizzard smacked me hard in the face and made all my toes and fingers feel as if they were about to fall off, I’ve never seen Edinburgh this beautiful. So, I think we can all agree that this rare, snowy storm has been a special treat, especially for us Californians who almost don’t really know what the word snow even means. I’ve had the best week embracing my inner child and playing out in the snow for literally hours, so I wanted to share some of my favourite photos with you, enjoy and stay warm!!
