This week, The Rock Trust launched their postcard exhibition at Summerhall. The exhibition runs from 4th of June to the 2nd of July and coincides with an auction to raise money and awareness for youth homelessness in Edinburgh and the Lothians. The exhibition is made up of 170 pieces of art donated by local, national and international artists- and you can go along and bid for your favourite piece with all proceeds raised going towards helping Edinburgh most vulnerable youths.
Good news fellow Edinburghers! it's baby season at Edinburgh Zoo at the moment! I went last weekend and gushed over the ADORABLE baby penguins in their little huts that look set for a beach resort. They were cute beyond words and you have to go and see them while they are still at their fluffiest.

Fans of fitness clothing will know about this beautiful little showroom on Castle Street. On Saturday the 13th of June they will be closing their showroom- but fear not, they are moving to an even bigger and better store on George Street which is set to open in the next few months. At 12noon they are holding a goal setting workshop, which is a great opportunity to meet some positive people (for the record the girls at Lululemon are awesome) and be inspired to get out there and make things happen. See their Facebook page for more details.
