Diva’s diaries is where I share random happenings and highlights from my week. Last week just flew by. Literally.
Sartorial tips from the Diva
Please note the way the cycling shorts and flourescent jacket work so well with the fantasy wings and killer heels. I hope you can make out the fantasy wings. They really are an easy wear accessory guaranteed to get you noticed.

Of late I’ve felt an inexplicable pull toward all things geeky so when I saw a Beginners Electronics Workshop advertised where I could solder under the instruction of Super Geeks – I was sold.
Electronics workshop with Edinburgh Hacklab
I’ve been excited about this dining experience since I first became aware of it in August this year after reading about it in ion magazine (page 102) and on the Edinburgh Spotlight website.
Charlie and Evelyn's Table
Charlie and Evelyn’s Table is a supper club run by Chris and Rachel Rowley. They invite up to 8 guests into their home for dinner. It’s the first supper club I came across in Edinburgh and I was very keen to try it. Even in September all dates for 2010 were fully booked so I was thrilled when Rachel agreed to host a special date for me as a Sunday Brunch Club event.
The Angel with Bagpipes
Angels with Bagpipes is the latest addition to the Valvona and Crolla string of Edinburgh delis and eateries started in 1934 when Alfonso Crolla opened Valvona & Crolla on Elm Row, which is still there today.
It opened in July 2010 and is inspired by nearby St Giles’ Cathedral and the angel playing bagpipes in the Thistle Chaple. Lex McFadyen was commissioned to design the impressive bronze carving of an angel with bagpipes which stands in the restaurant window above the stairs.
The statue certainly has wow factor, but would the food…?
Mr Mac and I along with good friend Jane Stewart and her friend JR went along to find out…
Foodies Festival is a fixture in the Diva calendar and Foodies Christmas is a particular favourite. And I’m delighted to bring you another Divine Diva Giveaway.
