A Wee Weekend in Glasgow

So today's post was supposed to be all about our bedroom redecoration, but doh didn't get the bed actually moved in in time for me to take pictures soooo this is a random little post about last weekend in Glasgow. My best friend lives there and it was my first time visiting because it's soooo far away, but a five hour drive and all the coffee later I made it and what a beautiful city!



I think it helped that the weather was amazing - so sunny and actually warm (a rarity for Glasgow though apparently). I'm sure that even when it's a bit grey Glasgow would still be beautiful, as all the buildings and streets are so pretty. Even though it is a totally different kind of city, it made me miss living in London so much because it has that exciting fast paced feeling and coming back to Hull made me realise how behind Hull is as a city (sorry Hull, love you still).


We went to the Barrowlands, which are markets full of cheap gems (got some jammy saucers to keep my plants on) then wandered into town where I lusted over the Jo Malone counter and spent too much money in Lush. I didn't know before I went that Glasgow is the vegan capital of the UK and we ate at the yummiest vegan cafe called Mono. In the evening we went to the cutest (although massive) pub called The Chip, which was on a street covered in fairy lights.


The next day we spent wandering the west end, visiting the botanical gardens and sitting in the park in the sunshine. Healthy food was ridiculously available (someone please open a healthy deli in Hull where I can buy lunch) and I had a tasty green juice from All About Juice (later followed by McDonalds at a service station on my way home, balance right there). I was pleasantly surprised by Glasgow and will definitely go back to explore more!







Have you been to Glasgow?

  3. I've never been to Glasgow but it's definitely on my list! I didn't know it was the 'vegan capital' of the UK, either, that makes it even better. :) xx
