A few things to do in and around Kirkcaldy this weekend (Thurs 21st Sep 2017)

Hi there and welcome to this week’s guide for what to get up to this week in and around Fife.
As usual, we’ll have a pub, restaurant and a few gigs to go to at the weekend.

Pub of the week


Ship Tavern, Anstruther

"Popped in for a quick drink and were blown away by the welcome, definitely not the sort of welcome you'd expect from a pub. The landlord (we presume) was friendly, knowledgeable and boy, could he make a wicked Gin and and Tonic.
Lovely place which you should visit if you're in Anstruther - we didn't eat anything but food in a chiller cabinet on the bar looked very good too.
Will definitely return next time we're in Anstruther"

Keeping in with the Anstruther theme for wining and dining this week, why not have a drink then head to the restaurant? Or vice versa, or both :)

Restaurant of the week


The Cellar Restaurant, Anstruther

"The Cellar is a unique and one of a kind restaurant situated in the heart of the East Neuk of Fife. An area with a rich fishing heritage and traditions. Over the centuries The Cellar was used as a Cooperage, building barrels for salting the local fleets Herring catch. A fishermen’s store and even a smoke house.
Reopened in 2014 by Local Lad Billy Boyter, his ethos at The Cellar is simple. To source and promote the best local and Scottish produce throughout the seasons. Making good use of the surroundings by foraging local seaweeds and other edible plant species.
The cooking at The Cellar is modern and simple, but still very much in touch with our past traditions and heritage. Every effort is put into keeping old practices alive such as drying, fermenting, salting and smoking. These are all important elements in our cooking."

"With roots in Portland, Oregon and Liverpool, England The Horsenecks play a dynamic mix of American roots music that they bring to life with the high-energy performance of a group of people who love the music they play.
Top-shelf musicianship and a love of the lost art of Old Time music are swiftly making them a well-loved and highly respected staple in the traditional music scenes in the US and the UK.
Gabrielle Macrae; Fiddle, banjo, guitar
Barry Southern; Banjo, fiddle, guitar
Chris Marshal; Bass
Dave Searson; Guitar.
"...on every track their talent is self evident...
...Gabrielle’s fiddle playing has a real energy and a complexity
that is stunning...
...Barry’s banjo style is jaw dropping whether
he is playing the open back banjo and clawhammer style to
produce melodic and mellow tones or the bluegrass picking
style..." -Sue Rooke, OLD TIME NEWS No. 84 Winter 2015-16

"The Earl David Hotel, Coaltown of Wemyss.
It was named after David Earl, the second Earl of Wemyss and was built in 1911, and has been the heart of the village for many years.
Owners have come and gone many bringing the community together but some that never quite had what was needed to bring the pub back to the villagers and become the heart of this community, which has been a detriment to a building that is steeped in history.
It is our mission, to bring a village pub back to life and bring new guests and customers into our village and our lives and maybe even decide to stay!"

Many people find they have a bit of bother getting this just right so, in this guide, we aim to help with that!

6 Rules For How To Layer Necklaces

An example of layering necklaces

Choose necklaces in three varieties of length- short, medium and long, to get the most out of this look.
Be sure you’ve got a healthy mix of clearly defined lengths, starting from the shortest of 14” to the longest at 33”.
With a deeply elongated look, this style plunges down the neckline creating length on the upper body. Let it hang out, or tuck it into the neckline of your top and let the top of your necklace peek out.
Bring color into your outfit with a set of enameled necklaces-jewels with a powder coated splash of paint. You can use this chance to add some color to a monochrome ensemble.
Why not add a bold necklace to incorporate into your layered look? This acts as the focal point of the look, while the smaller, daintier necklaces look as though you always have those on, and just threw on this stunner piece to punctuate your look.
Choose metals in similar shades to create cohesion with your layers.

15 Ways To Layer Necklaces


"1. Wear a body chain with a dainty necklace for an out of the box style

However, feel free to give them a try because they are very easy to style and fashionable when styled with your outfit.
They are very cool and it is possible to rock this style all year long without showing too much skin or necessarily being at the beach. And, these pieces are also great to be worn over your night-out outfits as well.

7. Combine your oldies with your newbies for a truly original style

It is such a great idea because you can create yourself a very unique design on a budget. There is always an alternative that allows you to stay trendy and cool.

9. A melange of different layered necklaces for an individual style

Don’t be afraid to stack up your dainty necklaces with chunkier chained necklaces for a statement look that will be definitely noticed.
Pile up different in length and size pieces for a truly individual style. For some people the over accessorized bling-bling style is not to be considered but you can always replace the statement necklaces with more discreet ones.

V-neck tops with lace are very trendy right now so it would be a crime if you don’t have one yet because they are so easy to style and look great with some layered necklaces.
However, it is better to pair your top with different in length necklaces to give dimension to your outfit. For example, a lariat necklace with a delicate choker for a modern and stylish look. During the colder days you can layer with a chunky and fluffy cardigan.

Long delicate necklaces look very feminine when styled with a black-on-black outfit. You can never go wrong with such a simple, yet elegant style.
It is up to you to decide if you want your necklace to be with pendants or clean designs with nothing but a beautiful and stylish chain.

13. For a boho-inspired look add some beaded layered necklaces

Add a pop of color by adding some beaded long layered necklaces with tassel pendants or animal elements to it to complete your bohemian style.
Make sure to focus on earthy and natural tones when choosing your beaded layered necklace because these colors are very typical of the boho hippie inspired fashion style.
In addition, these colors are just perfect for the fall season because we usually like more settled and darker palettes for this time of the year.

14. Girls and their pearls for a classic style

Girls and their pearls are a very timeless and classic combination that will never go out of style.
Furthermore, don’t underestimate the versatility of the pearl necklace because you can easily wear your layered pearl necklaces for casual and everyday looks.
Or you can style your pearls to go to a special event where you can simply stick to the all times classic style. People prefer to wear them for weddings, operas, theater, special occasions, red carpet events or any place where you can show off your passion for the classic pieces.
Pearls bring confidence and sophistication to your outfit therefore don’t hesitate to give them a try because they are also very flexible and adaptable to many different kinds of styles.
This season pearls are so trendy, but not at all in the way that you picture them. If your nature is far from being an all times classic, then you can enjoy the pearl embellishment on you clothes, eyeglasses chains or chokers as an accent piece.

15. Pile up bold necklaces for a daring and fearless look

Mix and match chunky and bold detailed necklaces that will fully wrap your neck and give your look a very fearless and daring style. The layering of statement pieces definitely calls for attention but don’t worry because it is not that difficult to properly style them so they don’t look tacky.
If you are not sure how to wear chunky layering necklaces like a pro make sure to add to your collection an already layered bold necklace that consists of dainty chains attached to a heavy set piece.
