Last Friday I jumped into a minibus with 11 amazing ladies and headed off to Edinburgh for my hen do, officially titled Jen Do (and the hashtag version, #JenDo). It was the best weekend… ever.

We stayed in the most beautiful apartment in the very centre of Edinburgh. When the minibus pulled up and we finally lugged the last suitcase up the stairs, we spent at least 20 mins running around squealing like they do in America’s Next Top Model.

This is No.19 The Apartment. It sleeps up to 14, welcomes hen parties and has the best location in Edinburgh – Queens Street, right in the heart of the action but still quiet and peaceful. I was utterly bowled over by this place – high ceilings, hardwood floors and the most beautiful interior features that made it such a special place.

The weekend was a perfect mix of city exploration, delicious food, gin and dancing-til-your-feet-fall-off. We did a treasure hunt around Edinburgh. We had afternoon tea. We danced non-stop ’til 3am and sang (screamed) many, many songs.

I got dressed up as Carrie Bradshaw from the SATC opening credits, for goodness sake. Best. Weekend. Ever.

Huge thank yous to Team Bridesmaid: Clare, Laura, Lins, Rachel and Jen, my mum and mum-in-law and my amazing friends Lil, Lauren, Steph and Lisa. You made this an experience I’ll never forget.



oh wow Jen, it looks like a fantastic time – and what a great location?! Were you involved in the planning or was it a total surprise?


The apartment looks amazing. If I was staying there, I would have been doing the ANTM screamathon and runaroundathon too. 😀


It looks amazing, and the place you stayed looks incredible!!
Glad you had a lovely time Jen, can’t wait to hear all about the wedding.

Looks like you had a fab time!
I’m in love with that bird print/wallpaper over the fireplace as well – definately need to redecorate our living with that!

Good luck and congrats for the big day as well! 🙂 x
