Giveaway & OOTD Fall Winter Street Style | Burgundy Patchwork Bomber Jacket c/o SheIn

Fall Winter Street Style | Burgundy Patchwork Bomber Jacket

c/o SheIn

Another weekend with another outfit post! Winter's coming and I AM excited! Fuzzy socks, jackets and blankets... what's not to LOVE?!

I love this long cute bomber jacket. The color, fit, quality - everything's perfect. Only thing I'm disappointed with is how it looked thick and warm on the website, and how thin and not-at-all-warm the material actually is. It's perfect for Fall, but is definitely not going to be of much use in the actual Winter chill here. Eh, I like it enough to not want to return it though (LAYERS to the rescue!). Plus, the color is the exact shade of Burgundy I had been looking for. Penny for your thoughts?

Lisa Stewart | New Release Spotlight

Sunny is outshone by her exceptional brother, Gil, but when he unravels faster than a spaghetti jumper, Sunny finds herself chasing love, aliens and a runaway nun to get their lives back on track.

Peggy Drumm dreams of winning the lottery and escaping her ordinary life but when she scoops the jackpot, she finds the answer isn’t at the bottom of the champagne bucket list after all.

Soup is the New Coffee

by Lisa Stewart

Published by: Independent (Self-Published)
Page Count:  366

When two young women clash over serving up the best soup in Edinburgh, expect a mixed broth of rivalry, surveillance, magic, romance and team building. Warning: may contain nuts.

About the author

Lisa Stewart started life in leafy Bricket Wood. The village is home to the oldest naturist community in the UK where rumours of bike-riding naturists sparked great hilarity in junior school. Aged eight, she moved 410 miles to Scotland with her family (mum, dad, older brother, younger brother, younger sister, dog and guinea pig). 

She attended Woodmill High School in Dunfermline - her favourite memories being of the hillwalking club, trips to the Edinburgh Fringe and school discos. She left school at five feet two, graduating from Queen Margaret University three years later and three inches taller. 

Lisa has worked in NHS Lothian for many years – her best friends making a half-decent multidisciplinary team, although short of orthopaedic surgeons.

Lisa wrote her first novel ‘Soup Is The New Coffee’ in 2002, followed by ‘Being Gil’s Sister’ in 2004. Unsuccessful in getting a publishing deal – the rejection letters being used to stuff a king-size mattress – she turned her attention to non-fiction. She completed a Masters degree, also at Queen Margaret University, and published her assignments in professional journals.
A casual question from her mum, ‘What are you doing about your books?’ spurred her back to the word-processor. She re-wrote ‘Being Gil’s Sister’ and published it on Kindle Direct Publishing in 2012.

In 2014 she completed ‘Knitting Haggis’, followed in 2017 by a re-working of ‘Soup Is The New Coffee’. 

Lisa likes to have fun with her novels and blogs. She enjoys creating characters whose stories are amusing and absurd. Her fourth book ‘Camp Conkers’ follows siblings Sunny and Gil (Being Gil’s Sister) in a summer holiday countryside caper. Their story bears no similarity to summer and even less to a holiday.

Lisa lives in Edinburgh with her husband and son, where a quiet evening can carry the screeching and squawking of wild animals. That would be the zoo, as opposed to the Stewarts fighting over the hair gel.
