Friday Hi-Fives: News and Kitten Excitement!


What a difference a week can make – get comfy because you and I have a LOT of catching up to do! Since we last hi-fived, our renovation work in flat has finished, final arrangements for the first Scottish Blogger Shop were made (find out everything you need to know about that here!) and…we’re getting a kitten! In fact, we’re actually bringing the little guy home TOMORROW, say whaaaat?

Needless to say I am practically bouncing off of the walls with excitement. I mean, I guess I’ve always been a crazy cat lady in the making, but knowing that we’ll have a little furry baby padding around the flat by this time tomorrow is almost too much. I can’t wait to meet him! Any kitten advice and heart-warming anecdotes are actively encouraged…

So what else is going on? Well, this week I spent 3 busy days in York, which was fun because I hadn’t visited the place since I was little. Not too much had changed since then and I’d really like to go back again someday with Gary and go ghost hunting!

On Sunday, Elaine and I had big plans to hit the Vintage Car Boot at Merchant City, but due to the crazy wind it had all been called off (boo hiss!). Not ones to get all gussied up for nothing, we still had an ace day out of brunch, shopping, silly selfies and even foosball – because friends don’t let friends go out in the billion-MPH winds by themselves, am I right?

Recently we also went along to the Scottish premiere of 4DX at Cineworld and were among the first to try this new super-immersive movie experience (and caught a preview screening of Suicide Squad while we were at it!). It was a really fun night and if you’re planning a trip to see a big blockbuster soon, try to see it in 4DX – I’m already wondering what the next movie released in 4DX will be.

I hope you guys have had an awesome week! Before I head off and get ready for tomorrow’s excitement, here are another few things I’d love to share to get this weekend off to a good start:

This week, I’m hi-fiving because…

…it’s my birthday on Thursday, hooray! I hereby invite you all to have cake for breakfast that day!

…if you love secret gigs, you can pick up tickets for a FREE live music event by Sofar Sounds & Koppaberg taking place next week in Glasgow by clicking here

…this post on being a cat parent by Hannah made me giggle while I was getting stuff ready for our kitty cat’s arrival

…I hit 10k followers on Instagram this week! I’m not one to chase numbers but I do enjoy a nice round milestone and I’m truly grateful to everyone that chooses to follow my colourful snaps, so THANK YOU!

…my girl Lia at Swoon Nails gave my hands a much-needed pampering (let’s just say after several weeks of dismantling and moving large furniture my hands were in need of some TLC!) and I now feel like my glittery self again

Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you next week!

  1. Aww, a new kitten! Love cats! And kittens are so innocent and sweet and sleeping in funny places all the time. This is definitely the time when you can get a good bond with them. Funnily I remember when I got my cat that he was sucking on my hair in the mornings, apparently thinking my hair was his mummy. Haha 😀 But he learned out of it quickly. Good luck and happiness with your new kitty 🙂
