Masterclass at Gordon St Coffee.

Gordon St Coffee, Glasgow

I have fallen more in love with Gordon St Coffee, there masterclass was a lovely evening and a great way to get to know the staff better. The evening started with a lesson in all things coffee, from how they are grown to how they are roasted and everything in between!

John the roaster, is not as scary as he looks in this photo! Warning: when the roaster is on, it gets very very warm upstairs! By the end of the evening the place was like a warm cuddle, that smelt of coffee.

Coffee beans pre-roast are actually green. They also change considerably in size during the roast.

Once roasted for 14 minutes, the beans are cooled for at least 4 minutes. The smell at this point is amazing, would love to have an alarm clock that burst with coffee smell when it was time to get up.

Care for your Hair.

CareForYourHair

Winter is here, it’s time to pull on the coats and layer up. However, if you have fine and brittle hair like me, this turns your hair into a knotty tangled mess. Despite using a Tangle Teezer to brush out the knots, my hair still breaks easily and needs a bit of TLC. Here are my 3 favourite leave in conditioners, I have been known to leave them in over night when my hair is particularly bad!

1. milk_shake Leave In Conditioner

2. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Light Mega Deep Treatment Mousse

3. John Frieda Sheer Blonde Hair Repair Conditioning Treatment

Does anyone have any secrets to helping keep your healthy in the winter? I just seem to get my hair forever stuck on my coat, which doesn’t help!

There is something magical about any city in the lead up to Christmas. Over the weekend, I met up with my Mum in Edinburgh and the city was turning the lights on and the streets were filled with various carollers and dance groups. Mum and I had a lazy day wandering around the city and loving the lights.

People tend to say I look like my Dad, but I definitely look like my Mum in this photo! (Scary)

We stopped at Harvey Nichols for a coffee, which was delicious. 4 Americano’s and a lot of talking later…
