Whoosh! It’s the end of the week AND the start of a new month – January seems to have just flown by, doesn’t it? I hope your 2017 is off to a fun and fabulous start so far.
Lately, I’ve visited a few new places around town to grab a bite to eat – including Chaakoo and Temaki in the city centre, and you can expect much more on Temaki next week! I’ve also been doing a ton of research for our big US road trip in a couple of months – making notes and bookmarking all of the places we want to check out.
This week, I’ve been making plans to catch up with some friends that I haven’t seen in a long time – including Silvia, who is in town celebrating her company Chouchou’s seventh birthday (SEVEN YEARS?! How did that happen?) for a few days. I’m also excited to see my friend Fiona, because no matter how long it’s been, we always pick up where we left off the last time.
If you’re in Glasgow tomorrow and fancy something a bit different, Ross Street Market is on from 11am to 5pm at The Barras. Expect art, food, drink and more from the likes of Julie’s Street Kitchen, Freddy & Hicks and other local independent companies. My mouth is already watering at the thought of Julie’s Malaysian-inspired street food!
Before I drift off into a food-related daydream, let’s share some more good stuff!
This week, I’m hi-fiving because…
…I’m STILL obsessing over La La Land and I’m plotting a repeat trip to the cinema. If you HAVEN’T seen it yet, put it on your to-do list and check out Gary’s (spoiler-free) thoughts to get you started
…Ayden’s been supporting the Jo’s Cervical Cancer #SmearForSmear campaign and talking all about why us girls shouldn’t be skipping those important appointments
…multicoloured holographic nails, you say? If I’m walking around staring at my hands and bumping into walls then you know why (and it’s all Swoon Nails’ handiwork!)
…Junk Kouture is arriving in Glasgow next week with its show of fashion design and wearable art from young talent – find out more about the event and how to attend here
…we spent a lovely afternoon lunching and laughing to celebrate my dad’s birthday last weekend. Oh, and it’s not a birthday without cake, am I right?
Here’s to making this weekend awesome – I’ve got a busy week ahead so I fully intend to spend the next few days hanging out with my nearest and dearest.
Who gets your hi-fives today?
Until next week…
