3 Awesome Jumpers to Keep You Warm This Autumn

3 Awesome Jumpers to Keep You Warm This Autumn

Ummmm…can we just talk about how dark and windy it is outside for a sec?! Autumn is clearly here to stay- no Indian summers in sight *siiiiigh* Because of this, lately I’ve been eyeing up every knitwear and jumper piece that I see.

Hyde & Son – Where You Can Get Both Your Coffee and Gin Fix at Once

Hyde & Son – Where You Can Get Both Your Coffee and Gin Fix at Once

One day, I was happily scrolling on Instagram when I came across a photo of a coffeeshop called Hyde & Son. It looked airy, it looked cool, it looked almost a bit minimalistic, a touch of Scandi maybe? I thought “ah, this isn’t in Edinburgh. If it was, I’d definitely have found it by now.” BUT IT WAS. IT IS.…

After moving away from Stockholm a few years ago I knew there would be things I would miss, most of which include food, let’s be honest.

A couple of months ago my friend Charlotte who runs the awesome blog  and Instagram Ohh For Shore told me about a new cool place that had just opened in Edinburgh called the Milk Juicery which does healthy juices, smoothies, snacks and food.

The Lighest & Brightest Coffeeshop in Edinburgh – Cairngorm Coffee

I’ve slowly been going through all my different memory cards and hard drives so that I can clean up all my photos. I literally have thousands and thousands of blurry accidental shots that need deleting and take up so much space. Full disclosure: I used to buy a new memory card every time it was full instead of just backing…

About Me - a lifestyle + travel blog by KK Land

Welcome to my blog! This space started due to a combination of things – my cosmopolitan lifestyle and my love of taking photos. My biggest love is to travel and I don’t stay put in one place for more than a few weeks.

Here you can find a mix of different posts, such as my days spent in Edinburgh, with a coffee cup in hand. Or my travel adventures in different countries. Or some style posts- I’m a casual gal but enjoy a good statement piece.
