Gambling regulations in the UK - the need for balance

The Gambling Commission was set up under the Gambling Act 2005 to regulate commercial gambling in the UK in partnership with licensing authorities. They also regulate the National Lottery under the National Lottery etc. Act 1993. Gambling is a diverse concept that incorporates a range of activities done in a variety of settings. There are conflicting advantages and disadvantages to gambling and the various methods through which it can be done. The government must try to balance the economic and entertainment benefits of the industry alongside the need to protect vulnerable people and children from engagement and addiction. Although striking a balance is difficult and attempts have been made, there is currently more that can and should be done to protect the vulnerable.

The Bodyshop - Foundation and Drop of Sun

Today I thought I would review The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation and Drops of Sun. I really needed a super natural foundation for no-makeup make-up looks and this is perfect.

To what extent is there in Scots law a satisfactory legal framework with respect to digital content?

This post is something a bit different from my usual content, so if you aren't particularly interested in law then please check out any of my other posts! I just thought this might be interesting for those studying the law relating to digital content, so here are my thoughts on the topic.

The Sale of Goods Act 1979 (SGA) does not deal with digital content and the relative scarcity of judicial authority on the matter means that it is not clear what manner of legal treatment should apply to disputes involving software. This leaves uncertainty regarding business-to-business transactions especially with English and Scots law differing. However, the introduction of the Consumer Rights Act 2015(CRA) was described as a “timely introduction in order to simplify and strengthen the consumer protection laws in the UK” (Althaf Marsoof). I will first consider the law applicable to consumers and then businesses in order to show that the law relating to business transactions in both Scotland and England is unsatisfactory.

Kiko 2-in-1 Foundation Review

Today I thought I would review the Full Coverage 2-in-1 Foundation and Concealer by Kiko. This is definitely my go-to foundation for when it comes to nights out, events and more glam makeup looks in general. It covers all discolouration or pigmentation perfectly. I love the little brush applicator inside it as well, as it really helps to apply it just like a concealer on the under eye area. It also helps when you want to touch up your makeup, as don't need to carry around a separate brush and it helps to apply the product precisely, without accidentally putting too much. It has a matte-satin finish, so it still looks glowy and isn't too drying, although it still stays in place for hours.

Strawberry picking and Stonehaven

A few months ago my boyfriend and I took a weekend trip to go to a popular little village in the highlands, just outside of my city called Stonehaven. It has Scotlands highest award winning fish and chips and ice cream shops, which are both directly next to each other. I had always visited Stonehaven growing up as a kid and throughout my life with my friends so I really wanted to take him. There is also the famous Dunnottar Castle which is really interesting to see.

In February my friends and I took a trip to Berlin to celebrate our friends birthday. Berlin had always been on my bucket list and I couldn't wait to experience it with my friends. Needless to say it was insane in the best way. I thought I would write a bit about my time there and share some photos.To begin with, the nightlife...

Wednesday, 9 May 2018


So for one week last month, I had a placement at a law firm in Edinburgh. Although I was working all week I still got to see some beautiful sights on the weekend and I thought I would share some of the photos. This was my second time in Edinburgh and I can't wait to be moving there to work in two years time.
