Galavanting around Glasgow.

People make Glasgow

Oh Glasgow, I have well and truly fallen in love with you. Last weekend was spent visiting family in Glasgow, the photos are all taken within the city centre. There is still a vibe about the place post Commonwealth Games with signs still up that depict where certain venues are. In 7 weeks time I will be an official resident of Glasgow and I can’t wait!

Autumn Nails.

It’s the end of August which can only mean the darkening days of autumn are coming complete with knitwear, scarfs and the infamous pumpkin spice latte. Neon and bright colours are my favourite type of nail colour but not quite appropriate for the coming months. Here are my picks for autumn nails.

I have been good with my nails and resisting shellac, which has definitely helped restore my nails!

Apple & Cinnamon cookies.

Apple and cinnamon cookie ingredients
My absolute favourite part of baking, apart from eating the baked goods is the smell that lingers in the kitchen post bake. These apple and cinnamon cookies from Hummingbird Bakery’s Cake Days cookbook are no exception. A tried and tested flavour combination for a simple cookie perfect for an afternoon tea.

I recently visited my Grandparents so made them these cookies as they always give me the largest lunch possible so wanted to somehow contribute.

Just make sure you get rid of all the juice from the apple grating, to avoid a soggy bottomed cookie.
