It feels like aaaaages ago that I last shared some of my small happy moments. This series is a really nice way for me to reflect on the previous month. In case you don’t already know, this series is all about the little things. I think it’s important to appreciate all of the small happy moments, so here are some of mine…
We may not have found a new place yet (keep your fingers crossed for us) but I’ve enjoyed going to house viewings. It’s so much fun to look around a home and try to imagine how your own life would fit in there! Obviously the main reason I’m enjoying it is because we’re looking at properties with gardens aka we’re one step closer to getting a doggo.
A Visit to Tuk Tuk
Tuk Tuk Street Food is a restaurant I’ve been eyeing up for a while now, and I finally got to go a few weeks ago! We ordered a lot of food, and oh my god it was worth the wait. There is so many amazing vegetarian options, and I left feeling very full. If you’re based in Glasgow or Edinburgh, you definitely need to take a trip to Tuk Tuk. I could easily eat their paneer curry everyday!
Sum of All Your Parts
No idea what I’m talking about? Fatherson are a Scottish band who have been one of my favourites for years now. Their new album is out in a couple of weeks, and I have a feeling it’s going to be a good one! Three singles have been released so far, and they’ve been on pretty much nonstop in our house.
Ever since visiting a few markets on my trip to Newcastle, I’ve been obsessed with finding more closer to home. Southside pals, Park Lane Market is held in Shawlands twice a month and is probably my favourite! It’s basically impossible for me to leave without buying something. Mount Florida Gallery and Studio also recently held their first market, and I’m hoping it won’t be the last! I have a feeling there’s also a few markets I’m missing out on in the city centre, so if you’ve got any recommendations for me please do let me know.
Finding New Coffee Spots
I’m a sucker for routine, and I always seem to opt for the same couple of cafes. However, I’ve found myself in several new coffee spots recently, and it’s been so nice! Minor Figures are running a campaign encouraging Glaswegians to try out several cafes around the city and go dairy free along the way. If you complete the card, you get a limited edition jumper and I’m ridiculously excited for mine to arrive. I’ve loved making the effort to explore new areas of Glasgow and find great coffee along the way. A few cafes have even become new favourites of mine, and I didn’t even know they existed a few weeks ago! I’m looking at you The Good Coffee Cartel and East Coffee Company.
