Noir#10 'A Christmas Affair'
In Aid of Homestart Edinburgh
The event was held at the artistically seductive Summerhall in Edinburgh. It was a fantastic day of designers, distinguished ladies, gentlemen, families and delicatessens; all in one delightful dose! Noir 10 was held in aid of Homestart Edinburgh, which trains volunteer's to help support families throughout Scotland.
I arrived to a generously warm and welcoming entrance, your senses are instantly titillated with the glorious array of fantastic foliage and flowers! I headed up the stairwell to the Mainhall and Fashion Market, which was a wash with fantastic garments and pieces from a selection of the finest milliners in Scotland including Jane Davidson, Harris Tweed, Joyce Paton, 21 Century Kilt and Godiva boutique. The Bone Library was an amazing place to spend the day. It was an ornately decorated room packed full of unique and inimitable pop-up shops, where one could browse and get all the best goodies for Christmas loved ones. The Anatomy lecture room had an electric atmosphere and offered a selection of live music, poetry and short films. After a long day of shopping, I headed straight to the Courtyard and then onto the Dissection bar for some mulled wine and tasty treats!
Apart from the fabulous selection of entertainment, refreshments and gift's, the event also featured a full length fashion show choreographed by the amazing Anna Freemantle with designer's from Edinburgh's College of Art, and hair by Dickson Reid. All I can say is, I simply cannot wait for the next Noir! An absolutely lovely day out for all the family and fashionista's alike!

MacAulay & Co
I first met Fred at the 100 year anniversary show for Harris Tweed, held in the magnificent and simply mind-blowing natural beauty of Stornoway. It was an amazing experience and Fred certainly caused a stir. I had met him previously in the day when we were being kitted out in our kilts and my first impression was; what a nice guy. So warm, and friendly and on top of that one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. I remember him on the hit TV series ‘Have I got News for You’ and just thought; what a humble guy. I got into the studio for Fred's live show at about 10:00am which was broadcast live from the foyer of Pacific Quay
The atmosphere was buzzing and the studio was packed full of guest anticipating Fred taking to the stage.
Christopher Brookmyre was one of Fred's first guests with Richard Cadey amazing all of us with his super cool magic, and comedian David Kay who also raised plenty of laughs. Fred make’s the job look so easy with his charismatic smile and his happy go lucky comedy, that’s great fun for everyone
MacAulay and Co. is a daily magazine show on BBC Radio Scotland, which is broadcast between 10.00am and 11.30am Monday to Friday. Fred has a different guest presenter each week, and features a range of people including journalists, musicians, comedians and members of the public..

When I first heard about the upcoming docu-film 'Dream's of a Life' I literally stopped everything that I was doing. The story is so powerful that it left me in a dichotomy of loving and fearing it. It is after all probably every one's worst nightmare: a woman found dead after three year's alone, wrapping paper from Christmas strewn around the room and television still on. It is a harrowing and unforgettable story of Joyce Vincent, a beautiful and talented singer who died in isolation in her Wood Green flat.
Joyce Carol Vincent
When she was eventually found three years later, she was completely unrecognisable which lead the director, Carol Morley on a mission to find people who knew her while she was alive. The tale is so moving and to me teaches us that life is precious and can be taken away at any time. We must live life and we must love life and one another. It really is too short to exclude people or let a harsh words settle. We are all human so let's try to forgive one another rather than hanging onto things that are simply just petty. The film is being released in the UK by independent film makers Dogwoof on December 16.
