BBC Good Food Show.

So, Sunday was a lovely afternoon spent with my Mum. I had entered Girl Around Glasgow‘s competition for winning tickets to the BBC Good Food Show and completely forgotten about it. A few weeks ago, Laura got in touch to say she had re-drawn the competition and I had one tickets! I could not contain my excitement. A perfect end to moving in weekend.

Entering the SECC you are faced with rows and rows of stalls. Mum and I knew where the first stop would be.

The Bubbly Champagne Co’s Bar.

We ordered a glass of brut and rose and sat down to see what the show had to over.

I then spotted the little top hat caps, that are in fact champagne stoppers. Treated myself to a black sparkly hat as an essential flat decoration.

The show itself was lots of stalls with everything, my favourite – cheese.

Near the end of the show, I spotted this incredible bagpipe cake by Rachel at The Butterscotch Bakery. I started to speak to her about icing and how I struggle to do it.

Rachel decided to give me, my very own lesson on piping! So useful, I did get slightly better.

If you are ever need a cake or cupcake in Glasgow, give Rachel a call!

Will definitely be going to the show again next year.

You know the phrase, ‘Don’t judge a book by it’s cover’. Well sometimes the cover is what draws you to a book. Especially given how full the shelves and tables can be in any bookstore. The yellow coat caught my eye, call me a bumblebee but I just love yellow. My immediate thought was how can a happy colour like yellow be associated with loneliness?

The book is a collection of Marina Keegan’s essays and stories that she wrote whilst attending Yale. Marina died in a car accident five days after graduating. The book was created to document her creativity and allow her thoughts to live.

My favourite was the titled Opposite of Loneliness essay. It hit home, a lot. Having just started my grad job and living by myself the sudden sense of loneliness is apparent. No longer am I surrounded by people at all times, it’s nice to know that all students across the globe have that same feeling of being thankful for being part of their university community.

Bubbles and Boxes.

Moving in to Glasgow

This past weekend has been a blur of boxes, unpacking and mess. Massively helped by my parents which meant I am all moved in and unpacked after 1 weekend. To thank them for their help, I bought champagne when I flew up from London. However, the fridge had been set too low. Resulting in the cork exploding and champagne flowing everywhere! It was one way to christen my flat. Expect more photos of the flat next week!
