Wine Tasting

What a civilised afternoon we had. Shawshank and I spent today wine tasting in Peckhams. This basically meant sampling 8 different wines and eating lots of cheese. Oh, and my first mince pie of the season. Afterwards we stopped off at George Square for a mulled wine. I think it’s officially the countdown to Christmas.

 
 

Hamburger Jumper

Ally has a habit of wearing fast food jumpers. I’m already a fan of his chips jumper, and now I’ve arrived to the studio to find him in a hamburger jumper. What’s next? Bacon. I’m hoping bacon.

 
 

Coffee, Dumplings And Crabbies

This weekend saw the return of Kiltr‘s street feastival. Not festival, FEASTIVAL. This was my first time visiting, though, and – despite verging on being too busy – Jen and I enjoyed a Dear Green coffee (best in Glasgow) and vegetarian dumplings, washed down with Crabbies. I opted for the spiced orange flavour. I left with a very happy tummy.

 
 

Kelvingrove Cafe Cocktails

Joanna and I met for lunch and cocktails at Kelvingrove Cafe, a fairly new addition to Argyll Street. There seem to be many new places popping up along Argyll Street, which is good for me as I live so close and like to eat. Anyway, back to Joanna…

Jo set up Toad’s Caravan – a collaborative work space in Ruthven Lane – which is where I now work and how we met. She’s talented, ambitious and very hard working – my kind of woman! It was fun to chat over our cocktails, which were served alongside a plate of sliders. I had a mac and cheese slider, which was kind of weird, but definitely in a good way.

 
 

Leeds

Leeds is a city I knew nothing about. Needing to escape for a couple of days, my friend – Harry – spent 48 hours introducing me to its array of indie coffee shops, great restaurants, and getting me into beer (albeit fruity, cherry flavoured beer) and gin. Not a particularly healthy few days, which is why I spent some money I’d earned on a Jawbone Up (already hit my 10,000 steps by 10am today. YALDI).

My favourite spots in Leeds;

 
 

Banana Bread

It’s very unusual to see me in the kitchen. I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve never taken the time to learn to cook or bake. Recently, though, I’ve taken more of an interest in my diet (which is ironic, given I’m showing you a stodgy banana and raspberry bread I baked) and am spending more time preparing food for myself. My first attempt at baking was ridiculed on its presentation, but it doesn’t matter when it’s so tasty.

Unrelated: Thanks to Jonathan for helping me iron out the kinks with my photo blog.

 
 

Afternoon Tea

It’s been a suh-weet weekend, with afternoon tea at the esteemed Hidden Lane Tearoom. Ayden and I enjoyed finger sandwiches and cakes, washed down with two pots of tea. We went for the bog standard Afternoon Tea on the menu and found ourselves walking away with adequate food babies, so I’m glad we didn’t opt for the Luxury Afternoon Tea (perhaps next time).

 
 

RailsBridge

This weekend was fun. I headed to Edinburgh for RailsBridge, an organisation working to increase diversity in tech. There was a turnout of about 20-30 female programmers in TechCube, and – for me personally – it was great to work on an app and have an experienced programmer (teacher) I could ask questions to as I progressed.

I spent the weekend at my sister’s shop, which is next door to Casa Angelina – a vintage tearoom. It’s fairly new yet seems to have gained popularity with its afternoon tea. We didn’t quite stretch to afternoon tea, but the soup and cake I did have was very tasty.

 
 

Saturday with Brittany

Brittany and I met for sushi on Saturday, although it didn’t really go to plan as Shilla have stopped serving their amazing sushi platters. Still, we enjoyed some Korean food and quickly followed it up with a scone at The Hidden Lane Tearoom.

I really enjoy taking people to The Hidden Lane Tearoom who haven’t been before. It’s always a nice surprise for them walking down the misleading alley and being met by such a cute cafe. In Glasgow, alleys are generally used for men to urinate in.

 
 

Kym ‘Krispy Kreme’ Ellis

Yesterday – after spending the weekend in England for a wedding I was shooting – I had the pleasure of trying my first Krispy Kreme doughnut and meeting Kym Ellis. Kym and I have tried to meet on a few occasions, but something always gets in the way (like January’s crazy blizzard). It was great to finally meet as we both love cameras, coffee and  – now that I’ve finally tasted ’em – Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I want to try them all. ALL OF THEM, I TELL YOU.
