Hello, friends! And happy Friday to you! Our usual Friday hangout has been on hiatus for a couple of weeks while I was off gallivanting in Florida, but we are officially back ON for our weekly dose of chatter and good vibes. Hooray!
What’s new with you? I hope you’ve had a fabulous week. After arriving into Glasgow at 5:30am on Sunday, I’ve been battling with jet lag for most of the week – trying to avoid sleep as though Freddy Kruger was after me, I swear… #thestruggleisreal you guys.
As far as first weeks back home go, this one has been pretty great (and busy!) – no post-holiday blues around here! I had a fun afternoon out with the lovely Hayley on Wednesday and spent a long girly lunch at the Glad Cafe, before moving next door to Glad Rags Thrift and having a good old rummage. Yesterday, Gary and I went along to a preview screening of The Nice Guys and grabbed a dumpling-tastic dinner at Nippon Kitchen in the city centre. The movie was very funny and it felt like the first time in ages that I’d watched Ryan Gosling in anything. Go see it!
This week has been amazing for Scottish talent, with both Bonnie Bling and Sara Hill releasing gorgeous new collections. I’m seriously crushing on Bonnie Bling’s 1970s-inspired jewellery (it’s all about that cheese plant!) and Sara Hill’s luminous Nectar blush has ‘cult make up bag favourite’ written ALL OVER IT.
If you’re city bound this holiday weekend, don’t forget to check out Glasgow’s first Style Mile Festival, which is on until 30th May. With events, offers and treats for fashion and beauty lovers, you can find out more here, or by stopping by the pink Festival Hub outside House Of Fraser. It’s like Woodstock for shopaholics!
I’m ready to get into this three-day weekend, how about you?
This week, I’m hi-fiving because…
…Cafe Strange Brew have switched up their menu and their Turkish Eggs are perfection (even better when you’ve just bounced off of a transatlantic flight…)
… you can get some free summer styling from Blow’s braid bar at Topshop Argyle Street this weekend. Fancy joining the Braidy Bunch?
…being away is awesome but walking into the flat for the first time in over two weeks made me feel all warm n’ fuzzy
…pink smokey eye make up is the beauty look I never knew I needed! Can the Sephora MUA’s do my face every day, please?!
…Hello Giggles turned 5 this week! Happy birthday, ladies!
Hi-Five Homework: Pay it forward this week – maybe make a donation (no matter how small), help someone that’s having a rough day or support a small business. It’s that simple!
Have fun this weekend and I’ll see you next week…
LOVE LOVE LOVE,
