After a massive break from blogging, basically lasting from just before lockdown up until now, I’ve decided to put a little love and care back into my blog. There were lots of contributing factors to the lack of posts, but I think mainly living in Groundhog day is the biggie. I mean how can you get the motivation or even any ideas on what to post when you’re repeating similar days/ not having too many exciting events through the year to look forward to and write about. That being said, although 2020 has been a shitter, there have been a few fun things happening…
I’ve had the chance to temporarily move back home to the Outer Hebrides. I can’t think of a better place to be while the world is all going through this craziness. Its been so nice to spend a lot of time with family and keep my normal work routine while on WFH – without work I think I would have lost my sanity.
Ya gal turned 26. I feel like we have all mutually agreed to pause our age since the year has been an absolute write off. But also I was super relieved that lockdown had eased in time for me to move home before my bday so I could enjoy it with family.
Soo what beats a Saturday Brunch with a Gal pal and some vino… answer – nothing. A couple weekends ago I finally got round to visiting Cognito on the Corner and it totally did not disappoint. In fact I 100% will be rushing back. Mainly to try out their cocktail menu. But also the food was pretty great too.
So I’m just back in Abz after a fun filled weekend in the capital. Basically plenty of food, plenty of booze and plenty of laughs…so all wins. Alsoooo a trip into the city for Saturday brunch, is there a better way to start your day??! Don’t think so. Anyways, if you wanna hear about our Brunch spot of choice keep reading.
So currently in my life, for the foreseeable anyways, I have decided to avoid boys and stick with drinking plenty water and eating veggies cause they will deffo not cause me wrinkles and grey hairs. That being said I have found the absolute gals night out venue in the Deen.
Basically I’ve hit mid life crisis at the thought of turning 25 this Summer, so I’ve decided to soften the blow by trying to gift myself with the best bod I’ve had yet. Annd this obv isn’t an easy gift, I need to start now, in fact I probably needed to start last year!
So if you fancy sticking around to follow my “transformation” (we hope), or even to help encourage me/ share tips and tricks I’m all for it!
I’m starting off with a post on my current go to breakfast, its so quick and easy to grab and take to work.
My second foodie blog post. And this one, once again, is all about Six By Nico…
I know what you’re thinking, a bit of a reoccurring theme here, but honestly I cannot fault the place! It’s fine dining at such an affordable price. The atmosphere is perfect. The service is top class. And the work put behind each change in menu theme is ingenious.
This visit the theme is Illusion. Which as my boyfriends mum described, has a very Heston Blumenthal vibe to it.
For an extra £25 each we also added the wine flight which is perfectly matched to compliment each dish.
I’m not going to lie, I struggled to keep up! Which is why when the accompaniment to course 4/6 was a beer I happily passed this over to my other half!
Today we ventured out towards Finnieston to finally experience the greatness that is SIX BY NICO. This is not your regular restaurant with its seasonal menu, no, Six by Nico has a themed menu which lasts 6 weeks and is then gone and replaced with a completely new theme all over again! Fab, right?!
