Well, hello there! If you’re reading this on Friday night, you’ve either managed to resist the Black Friday mayhem OR you’ve swooped in super early and have snapped up everything on your shopping list already (you clever thing!). Either way: welcome! I thought it was about time we had another catch up and shared some hi-fives, don’t you?
Lately, I’ve been checking out a couple of new openings around Glasgow – including a brand new Swatch store on Buchanan Street. It’s filled with super cute watches, jewellery and even sunglasses! Well worth a look next time you’re hitting up the Style Mile. I spent an evening with Kiehl’s (also on Buchanan Street) discovering some of their latest Christmas gifts – I’ll be sharing a few of my top picks very soon, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled…
I also took a few days off and had a little long weekend to myself! My lovely friend Vicky came through to Glasgow for a few days and we had a sleepover. We got through multiple cups of tea, a few movies (including I Am Divine, one to add to your Netflix watch list if you haven’t seen it!) and I was able to introduce her to the wonderful Cafe Strange Brew. Vicky is always taking me to fabulous places in Edinburgh so it was great to return the favour!
This week, I’ve been along to a couple of awesome dinners with some of my favourite beauty brands. We were celebrating a very merry Glitzmas (hint: all things pink!) with Soap & Glory at The Bothy on Tuesday, then on Thursday I headed to The Corinthian to chat about being kind to your hair with the Salon Success / Paul Mitchell crew. With two Christmas dinners under my belt (and it’s not even December yet!), you can bet I am dying to put up my tree ASAP.
Before I go reaching for the tinsel though, let me share a few more hi-fives with you!
This week, I’m hi-fiving because…
…I had the most relaxing facial at the Clarins Beauty Bar – I was actually ENCOURAGED to take a nap during it! Surely this is pampering at its very finest?
…Tatty Devine have released their new Home & Accessories collection and it’s glittery perfection
…The Glasgow Food Blog is back with a bang (and a sassy makeover!) – go check it out here
…it’s just one week until the #EtsyMadeLocal event kicks off at The Briggait with oodles of everyone’s favourite indie makers, I can’t wait to pick up some locally made stocking fillers!
…our latest podcast episode went live on Monday and we’re falling down the rabbit hole of forgotten celebrity clothing lines – come find us here and add us to your playlist
Here’s to the weekend! Have a great one and I’ll see you next week…
