Escape with Gleddoch Hotel & Spa

Gleddoch House

You know that feeling when it's Wednesday, your to do list is giving you evils, your self care is at zero and your shoulders and back are in agony (let's face it, most of your body is sore because that's what unexplainably happens now that you're almost 30) Well, that's what is punching me right in the feels today folks, that and photos of my day trip a couple of months ago to Gleddoch Hotel with one of my best Gal Pals, Ashley.

Homegrown - The local brands I love

NAF Salon

Well would you look at that, the wanderer returns! August has seen a brand new start for me and my lil' family. We've moved out of Glasgow, back 'home' towards the town I was brought up in, and bought our very own house with a garden, and a garage, and a bedroom for Reuben. So now we have numbers 4 and 10 ticked off the 30 before 30 list, yay! This new home has given us a lot of the factors we have been craving since I fell pregnant last year (mostly, SPACE!) so making this move was a mix of happy and sad tears, as we waved goodbye to city living to start a new chapter further out into the suburbs. With the last box unpacked today, I thought it apt to do a little ode to Glasgow and some of the favourite brands I have discovered, and fallen in love with, from our Dear Green Place.

A day in the life of Reuben

Chicco Next 2 Me

Our little baby Roo is now 4 and a half months old, and I'd be lying if I said I've got this whole parenting thing down, but we're definitely getting the hang of it now. On a good day I can get up and out the house before 10am, and on a not so good day I realise it's 4pm and I've not cleaned my teeth or eaten. Some days I don't even brush my hair, and some days Reuben naps for long enough that I manage flicky eyeliner AND cleaning the entire flat. This boy gets more likes on instagram than I do (Can I really blame you though? No, no I cannot) so I thought I'd share an insight into his average daily routine.
