Travel | Edinburgh Day 4 & 5

Hi lovelies,

So for the next part of our Edinburgh adventure:




Personal| Happy Easter!

Travel | Edinburgh Day 3

Hi Lovelies

So for part 2 of our Edinburgh adventure:


We left you at the end of our second day in Edinburgh. On day 3 we explored the Royal Mile. The Royal Mile is a nice cobbled touristy street filled with whiskey shops, souvenir shops, restaurants and more. And one of those well hidden gems is the museum of Childhood.


Travel | Edinburgh Day 1 & 2

Hi Lovelies,

Warning: text heavy post!



So for the long awaited Edinburgh report. This was supposed to be a video report. Something different isn’t it? We have been wanting to make video’s and vlogs for a long time  and in Edinburgh we finally did round to doing some properly. We had so much fun doing it and felt a bit like real bloggers. But, of course there has to be a but, otherwise you would already have laid eyes on these said videos. After hours of editing (I have a tendency to ramble), it just won’t compile, render out or however it’s called. One or two have made it onto YouTube but more about that later.


Factual | We are on bloglovin!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

bloglovin is this awesome place where you can kind of collect all the blogs you would like to keep up to date with. I have also linked a couple of most loved tumblr blogs on there so when I don’t feel like muscling through all those post I have the ones I really don’t want to miss in an other place.
Also brilliant: if you haven’t marked it as read, I will keep showing up in you feed. Just for the times you don’t have the time to read that long lovely post and don’t want to forget about it when you are installed with a nice cuppa on the bed at night.

Go check it out. We think it’s awesome

Lots of Love

Hi lovelies,

Today I have a product for you that I feel has a very popular kin. I have seen Origins Peace Of Mind making a couple of appearances on my bloglovin feed recently. This product isn’t new or anything, I just noticed that lots of people are loving it recently. If you are like me, seeing a product you think you might like and might actually be exactly what you are looking for, you are really bummed out when finding out there’s no (cheap/ easy/ any) way of getting it where you live.




Welcome to our new blog: Peanut+Monkey! We are the girls behind the budget blog: 3 girls on a budget. But as life goes, you move on and since we started out about a year ago our budget and the brands we started out with, have changed. We also got the hang of this blogging business a bit more.

We are still massively enthusiastic about all things beauty and make up, but our interest in DIY (beauty, jewelry, knitting, sewing…) has also been sparked. We discovered the joy of making YouTube videos and we have each come more into our own . We have our own favourite brands, favourite little corner of the beauty world and different ways we manage our money.

For those of you who have followed us here from our other blog, we hope you feel welcome here and you can see why these articles needed a different home. Don’t worry, 3 girls isn’t going to die a silent death. Action, Kruidvat, Catrice and Essence are still brands and shops we like and their home is very much three girls on a budget!

We hope you will enjoy this blog and take away some of our tips and hopefully we can learn from our readers. We can’t wait to hear from you!

Lots of Love

The Peanut+Monkey Team
