What The Dickins: A Tale Of Edinburgh City

Top 10 Highlights at Edinburgh’s New Life & Style Event

There’s a new summer event in town called Life & Style Edinburgh – and as it’s less than two weeks away (1-2 July) we thought we would round-up our top 10 favourite highlights to help you start to plan your day out at Edinburgh’s most exciting new event!

Tickets are available at www.edinevents.com/lifestyle if you’re interested in any of these events.


1) Free Beauty Treatment

Let’s be honest, we all love a freebie, and there are lots of luscious beauty treatments to enjoy at Life & Style Edinburgh from top names such as Clairns, Benefit, Molton Brown, Neal’s Yard Remedies, The Roxburghe Hotel, Cheynes Hair & Beauty and Arran Sense of Scotland. You can also make your own bath bomb with Lush to take home and soak in!

2) Reserved Seat at a Fashion Show

Get the Anna Wintour treatment with reserved seating at one of the many 20-minute fashion shows across the weekend. Take your seat and get your Instagram Stories ready as the latest collections from top brands including Anthropologie, Debenhams, Jenners, Covet and Marks & Spencer strut along the catwalk, showcasing this summer’s hottest trends and wardrobe must-haves.

3) Prosecco on Tap

Enjoy a welcome glass of bubbly on arrival from Poco Prosecco – that adorable little Italian van that serves prosecco. As an extra treat, you will also receive a £5 gift voucher to spend at participating businesses after the event. That’s £12 of value before you even walk through the front door!


4) Sophie Robinson at the Lifestyle Stage

If like us you are obsessed with Interior Design, then you will be just as excited to hear judge of BBC’s ‘Great Interior Design Challenge’ Sophie Robinson joins us on the Lifestyle Stage. Get design inspiration and top DIY tips as Sophie presents ‘Common Interior Crimes and Fixes’ and answers questions from the audience.


5) Yoga in the Gardens

Exploring all the themed rooms and pop-ups at Life & Style Edinburgh is our preferred form of cardio, but if you fancy trying the downward dog and warrior pose, then head along to the free yoga classes hosted by Lululemon in St Andrew Square Garden across the weekend.


6) Tantalise your Taste Buds

Spend the day tasting your way around Life & Style Edinburgh with chocolate samples from Hotel Chocolat, cocktail-making masterclasses with Badger & Co, food & wine pairing from Veeno, and tea tastings with The East India Company. You can also sample Marks & Spencer’s Food Hall favourites and try the new range of summer juices from Wagamama. Nom nom nom!

Stay in 40B Royal Terrace for interior design inspiration

Royal Terrace self catering Edinburgh accommodation

We think all ten Life & Style highlights are great, especially the ‘Common Interior Crimes and Fixes’ talk with Sophie Robinson. All our self catering homes have different owners and are therefore unique, but we do get a little extra excited when we take on a home which has been decorated to professional standards – and 40B Royal Terrace is one of them. No interior crimes to be found here! See more photos here and book this stylish apartment now!
