My neighbour got a kitten, so I’ve been doing a bit of cat sitting. I can’t say my dog, Indie, is particularly happy with me.
I needed all the fuel before a long day at the Ignite off-site in London. Black coffee and croissant at Notes coffee shop did the job.
I won’t say much. I’ll let the photos do the talking. Suffice to say I’m proud of my sister, Carolyn Baxter, and the work that’s went into creating this line of bridesmaid dresses. Having such a talented sister inspires me.
It’s great when we get to collaborate on projects. My sister designing and making the dresses, and myself photographing them. I can’t wait to see what else she creates.
Yo! Sushi was a staple of Buchanan Street. I was a regular for takeaway and was disappointed when it closed some time back. Now it’s returned! This time setting up camp on West George Street in the old Pizza Hut building.
My friend, Laura, and I haven’t caught up in 6 months. We’ve been busy being adults. So we decided to have our mate date at Yo! Sushi, despite Laura expressing reservations about sushi. “I like the ones with vegetables and that’s it.”
The menu had all of my favourites—udon noodles, gyoza, tempura… Even Laura gave her meal a glowing review and was adventurous with trying new dishes.
We finished our meal by sharing dessert(s) and drinking matcha lattes.
10/10. Will be back.
On Friday I went to The Finnieston’s pop-up gin bar as part of a 5PM deal. I love gin, but I’m disappointed when it’s served with the wrong garnish or the bartender doesn’t take pride in its presentation.
This wasn’t the case on Friday. We were presented with a list of premium, Scottish gin and tonics of which we could choose three. Jamie, our bartender, gave us recommendations based on our preferences and told us a bit about each gin.
They went down a little too well. I have to admit we didn’t stop at 3.
Living in Finnieston, I drink at The Finnieston quite often. Their gin cocktail, The Nautical, is my favourite. It was really nice to spend some time in their upstairs bar, which I didn’t even know existed, and have more of an intimate setting with the bartender who could talk us through our drinks.
It was Blake’s birthday last month. I can’t believe my nephew is 2 years old. He’s turned into a little chatterbox and I adore having him in my life, reading him books and being silly with him.
His 2nd birthday was the perfect excuse to go to soft play. As a 30 year old woman, I couldn’t resist taking off my shoes and diving about the ball pit with a bunch of toddlers.
You’ve met Brittany before. But I can never have enough photos of my friend, Brittany. This was after we’d stuffed our faces at West Brewery with currywurst.
Glasgow Coffee Festival returned for another year. Rab and I went on the Sunday as we had a wedding on Saturday. I’m always tired the day after a wedding as it’s both physically and mentally demanding, so coffee was definitely needed!
We complimented our flat white with cakes from CakeSmiths, then washed it down with #rawsoda. We also saw a lot of cute dogs.
