A Day In Glasgow

As I mentioned yesterday I spent Thursday shopping and eating in Glasgow with Hayley & Louise before we later met up with Morag, and I thought I'd share a few foodie snaps as well as my rather large haul with you all. I've been trying to incorporate a lot more food on the blog so I think the combination of a food event and a very nice meal out will help me do just that!

Hayley particularly fancied a trip to Forever 21 after I raved so much about it, and I wasn't one to turn down a visit! However I strangely didn't really fancy any of the clothes, which has been the same for most shops at the moment, and instead opted for some pretty little earrings for my forward helix and a pair of gorgeous monochrome heels which I had been after since the day the store opened back in March.

Where clothing lacked, beauty definitely picked up the slack. I managed to add two new MAC lipsticks to my collection - Mehr and Lovelorn - whilst also repurchasing The Porefessional and a travel bottle of Fix+. The Body Shop were selling their amazing body butters at half price so I snapped up a pink grapefruit one as well as the hand sanitiser and a raspberry lip balm for my bag. In Boots I bought two new nail polishes from Rimmel - Oh Boy You're So Fine! and Mary Mary Quite Contrary which are two lovely purple shades, the latter being so pale it's almost white. A blogger shopping trip is not complete without a visit to Lush and I ended up picking up A Breath of Fresh Air toner, Sweetie Pie shower jelly, Creamy Candy bubble bar and a sample of Karma soap.

All in all a pretty good haul, I'd say! I will be doing mini reviews/swatches of the two MAC lipsticks as well as the nail polishes, Lush goodies and The Body Shop products at some point next week so keep an eye out.

After we'd finished shopping we popped to Zizzi's in Royal Exchange Square for a bite to eat which was absolutely delicious, I had mozzarella and dough sticks to start with a pizza Florentina for my main while Hayley opted for a calzone and Louise had the spaghetti. None of us had ever tried Zizzi's before and I think we were all pleasantly surprised! The meal was lovely and very reasonably priced, and the building itself was stunning.

I had a lovely day with these fab ladies and can't wait to do it all again, hopefully with a bit less thunder this time!


  1. Why did I get so excited about seeing your haul?! I know what you bought, I was there!

  2. I love the shoes so much! I don't think there's a Forever 21 in Hull, which is horrid. I am also really hungry now, by the way.
