Papamacs Gourmet Kitchen

So here I am again guys, posting on a Monday! Hope you are proud of me, but to be honest, I hope you are actually enjoying the content I'm putting out there! I still need to kick my bum into gear about planning & scheduling more. But, I have faith I will get there in the end. So as I mentioned last week in this post, I was starting a new series on the blog. Which is great because it means at least twice a month I'll have something to share with you guys and its keeping in with the lifestyle direction I'm really keen to go with. Plus, it means I'll definitely have those posts planned every month, which will really help with having content every month. Anyways, I don't want to dribble on too much so I'll get onto talking about another amazing local spot!

Today I am sharing another amazing little place, which is also about a 15-minute drive from our flat. It's somewhere I have also been to, many, many times already... I still find it crazy where this place is located. But, being the family restaurant that it is, it doesn't surprise me that they have chosen somewhere local and stayed where they are. Papamacs, is a place you would expect up in the west end of Glasgow. Not Johnstone. Not that there's anything wrong with the town, there are no restaurants here except the traditional Scottish cafes, the chippies and the odd takeaway. Plus, the town square is tiny! As you can tell, there are "food places", but not gourmet food. But don't let those fancy words scare you. I actually went for a "test shift" here when I was younger (I didn't get the job, I was quite a nervous teen...), so I know a little history about the place. Such as the name and how truly family born and bred they are. Which again, pays homage to my "keeping it local".

I remember learning that the chef and his partner had named the restaurant after one of their Grandads (can't remember whose exactly), which is so heartwarming and lovely. It's also even more amazing that they now have a son, whose photo hangs on the wall, showing how much family really means to this place. The whole place just feels very personal. There are many portraits of what seems to be, their nearest and dearest hanging on the walls. The interior overall has a rustic feel to it. They have exposed brick walls as well as hardy wooden floorboards. The tables and chairs are also wooden, with a simplicity to them. But it all works together, the overall simple theme works really well because the menu sure makes up in whatever character the decor is missing. Which, to be honest, isn't a lot. It's a really quirky & cool bistro.



Chef Scott Keenan who is the chef & owner, was trained in Paris, as well as working in some great Scottish kitchens. You definitely sense the Parisian training with the techniques and gorgeous presentation of the food. That's one of the things that's great about here, they still manage to make really slightly boring traditional dishes, different and more special! What's also great is, Papamacs uses and sources local produce. I love knowing that the food I am eating, is from where I live. I love the idea of helping other businesses, just by going to that place. It's almost as if everyone is giving back and sharing. As well as preparing and cooking all the meals, the desserts and cakes are also made in their kitchen.

They also have their specialised & themed menus. Obviously, with the month of love fast approaching, they have their valentines menu. As well as their most recent, Annual Burns Night Special which of course,  has that fine dining feel to it! And on every last Thursday of the month, they have a steak night. So whether you just want to go for a catch up with a great friend or that special someone, it would be perfect for both. They also have their Sunday market meal, which to keep fun and interesting they change every week! Chris & I also keep trying to remember to do this, as well as try ALL their other menus and sample something from their all day/brunch selection... Although, from their Instagram, I really do feel we are missing out on those Sunday market menus!

I have been able to witness it grow over the years, which is amazing because its turned into a brilliant place! It always had that extra something anyway, so to see it grow even more is fantastic. I feel so lucky to have it only down the road. So if you happen to be in the area, or you are even sick of the hustle & bustle of the city. I would get yourselves down soon, if I can't tempt you then follow their Instagram, you will not be disappointed!

Easy Like A Sunday Morning (OOTD)

Hiya guys! Last time I spoke to you, it was only the beginning of the week... Now we are about half way through! Yay, we are all going to make it to the end. I have to admit, though, my week hasn't been bad. Slow maybe, but not a bad week. I hope its been the same for you, except maybe going a bit faster? With working in retail, my busy/stress levels depend on how many people are shopping. But since its just after Christmas, believe or not, there aren't many people spending money right now. At times the shop can be basically empty! I finish tomorrow for the weekend though so it isn't too bad. Although, I've got a lot going on so I'll probably blink and be back at work again. Its always the same isn't it? The time you want to hold onto slips through your fingers before you know it. And the time you want to skip goes slower than a snail.



Now, if you were here on Monday then you will have seen my post about my local favourite & new brunch/lunch series? If not just click on the link to have a quick read & then come back! Well, this is the outfit I wore that day (& the next after work to go food shopping, I recycle outfits if they have only been worn for 2/3 hours). I didn't post it all together because I want to keep my outfit posts separate from other types of posts. That doesn't mean if I'm posting about a day out I won't share any photos of me in it, I'll just save the majority of the photos and details for an actual post itself. I just think if I'm talking about a certain topic, I don't really want to be adding photos of myself posing in random locations. I don't know, it just doesn't work for me.



Im actually quite happy with how these photos turned out, I don't know why, but both Chris & I agreed that I didn't quite look like I was into it this time. I didn't feel like I was either, no idea why! I feel like I just didn't know what to do in front of the camera. It's strange you know, taking photos of yourself in outfits, then posting it on the internet... For me, I always go into knowing what I want, how I want to look and feel. As well as how the whole photo looks and feels. If I don't see or feel the connection, then I feel like I lose it a little. I wanted it to look a bit more casual & cool. Jumped out of bed, thrown it together and ran out the door kind of vibe. I think I ended up with something completely different to want I intended in my head, but Im still happy with it and I think it all somehow works. Even the location & editing.


Dress- Topshop
Cardigan- H&M
Jacket- Unif

Outfit Details
As it was a fairly casual Sunday, I didn't want anything too fussy or fancy! This tartan dress really is a favourite of mine to just throw on, It looks great with a lot of things. I knew I wanted to wear these awesome metallic boots, I think the super pointed toes really make them for me and add a great touch to any look. Again, keeping to the casual theme, I wanted a cardigan to just snuggle into. Because of the speckling effect, I thought this specific cardigan would match perfectly with the boots. They also have a slight speckling detail to them. Bag-wise I went for my trusty, spacious leather backpack. I thought it matched the dark/grungy vibe already had going on with this look. Plus, as I was going to be fairly busy in this outfit I had a lot I needed to carry. There are more pockets than I know what to do with them...

Easy Like A Sunday Morning

Bernie's Cafe Deli

Heya guys, how has your Monday been? I hope it wasn't too much of a crappy start to your week! I just had a short shift today, so I decided to get some new work uniform. Best to just get it done as soon as so it's sorted, also means when it starts to get busier again I can just get straight home when I finish. I have a bit of distance to travel to & from work you see, hence why I prefer to just get to the car as quick as I can! So today's post is the start of, a sort of new series on the blog... It's a nice fun one and there's no pressure of me having to keep up with a schedule. Once in a while, I want Chris & I to go for some brunch/lunch at some new place or a cute little place hidden down some random street we stumble across.  Or even somewhere that I've managed to find online. This is to sort of help with pushing me to try and discover new places. There's also so many great local places that I've been too, there has to be more. I feel everywhere has some hidden gems.

Now, I know I started this post by saying I was going to be trying new places and pushing myself, blah, blah, blah... Well, I'm actually going to be kicking this off with a place I've already been too many many times. One of the reasons I want to to do this and share it on the blog is because I really feel supporting local business is important and plus, I want to show off the local Scottish talent. So if you ever get the chance to visit you can maybe go. I would also love to hear suggestions from you about where you live, so If I ever get the chance to go I can! If you are a follower of my Instagram, if you aren't then why don't you hope over quickly and click the follow button? Then you will have probably of glimpsed at some pretty spectacular looking sandwiches. BLTs' (without the T), more specifically. And the odd occasional bowl of soup. What can I say? I'm a creature of habit.

Bernies is the local Deli Cafe and is a little gem just about 10 minutes drives from our flat. Yes, I'm sure we could walk, but we live in Rain All The Time Scotland. Hidden away in Bridge of Weir on their main road. The place has a relaxed, warm & comforting feel to it. Whatever you are feeling, there are many options for seating. From the cute little snug spots in the corner against the window to the big soft cuddling sofas and even the 6ft runner table in the middle if you have a lot of company. It's a big open space with high ceilings, the aesthetic, it's kinda quirky and cool. With also keeping to the "supporting local", they too, support locally. They use local food sources for their menu, as close as a few metres down the road at the village butchers. All the cakes that are on display are made in house by their own baker, and for years I've sworn that their victoria sponge cake is my FAVOURITE victoria sponge cake ever.

They also have different menus depending on the time of day. As well as specialised menus like their Valentines Menu, which is being held on the 11th of February. For £19.99 a three-course meal, as well as, a glass of something fizzy is included. Whether you are wanting to share this with a special someone, or even close family & friends, Im sure whoever you chose to share it with would be a great evening. They also have Slouch & Bistro evenings. Of course, both of these evenings are completely different from each other and have their own type of menu. The slouch evenings have more of a relaxed and chilled feel to them. You are more likely to come with a decent book & blanket. While you maybe enjoy a glass or two of wine, with a side of locally curated meats. Whereas their Bistro nights have a more uptown feel to them. A slightly more put together menu, again sticking to the keeping it local theme, using well-sourced ingredients to create something new. If you do fancy going to one of these evenings, I'd be quick! Spaces don't last long... Chris & I have still to check these out. So when we do Ill let you know all about it.

As well as the special evenings and menus that they do, they are also available for hire. Which is great because it has an amazing open space.  So whether you need it for a birthday or a private event for a club you are a part of, its perfect. But again, be quick! I tried to book here a few birthdays ago, but due to leaving it late someone else snapped it up! They also like to hold fun nights for the community (or anyone willing to travel). Something a little bit different than a local karaoke session...They have had drama sessions, poetry reading and even a barbershop singing group, The B Naturals. Its great to have somewhere that also believes in the local community and actively tries to get involved as much as they can. I have to say, there is a very big fanbase for this amazing local hotspot. People all the way from Port Glasgow come for a quick bite, as well as many cyclists due to being just off a cycle track. So if you are ever in the area, I highly suggest you have a little visit.

Bridge of Weir, Scotland

What's your favourite local hotspot? Do you have any Sunday/weekend traditions? Do you even like to leave the house on a Sunday? Any brunch/lunch recommendations welcome below! I look forward to reading & replying to your comments.

Mom Always Says Wrap Up Warm

How are you today? Glad to have arrived at the weekend? I've been quite unwell. I had so many plans to get blog work done yesterday & today, as well as household chores... But I guess it was not meant to be! I've been pretty much bedridden for the past 24 hours, except for the last few maybe, I've been on the sofa! At least I'm feeling better now though as I have work tomorrow and I really can't be calling in sick! If I still felt like I did yesterday, then I would of had no choice... This look is from a few weeks ago when I went to see my Gran and Grandad for a few hours. So something comfortable was definitely on the cards. Plus, I was dying to show off my new coat & boots I had gotten in the sale. 



Im trying to set myself little blogging tasks everyday, as well as using my time wisely. For example, on the way to work yesterday, I had to get the bus due to my start time being much later than Chris'. Because I knew I'd have about half an hour to play with, I pre-edited some blog photos. So if I've maybe not posted in a few days I've got some content for you guys! Plus, I've also started batch taking outfit photos as the weather is a bit unpredictable in Scotland! It also has a habit of getting pretty dark quite early. Although, the evenings seemed to already be getting lighter. Which is great, because it just gives you a bit more time to play around with. Especially if you are having to run out in between light rain showers! 



Although, exciting news! Come this time next year, well I'm hoping at least by August, I'm going to have a perfectly awesome space in the flat to take photos and film videos agains! We have a two bedroom flat and recently decided to move in to the bigger room, thus leaving a spare room which already has my built in wardrobe with all my clothes... So Chris generously suggested that I could have it as a potential walk in wardrobe! Hurrah! It makes sense really, I already have my clothes in there as well as 6ft clothing rail and I don't think we want to stay here for our first baby... Even if we did decided to do that, that's all in the future we can decide those details then. For now, I'm just excited to have some space to blog and create.


Jumper- Primark

Boots- Next
Necklace- Market Abroad
Bag- Skinny Dip laptop bag in same print

Outfit Details
As I said I was just visiting my Gran and Grandad for a few hours so I knew I wanted/needed something casual & comfy. But also chic. We've been getting the odd really cold day here and there so I thought this burgundy polo jumper would be great, the colours would match my new fluffy cream shearling jacket from Next as well as my new cream suede ankle boots, also from Next. The jeans are also really fun and quirky, totally up my street! So I couldn't help but pair everything with these. I was lucky enough to get these for my birthday from Chris. They were actually in my birthday wishlist post. Since discovering the brand at asos, its really made me want to check out other stuff! They have some pretty funky designs! Plus, they also have a petite section which is music to my ears!

What do you like to wear when It's cold? What are your go to winter staples? I look forward to seeing in the comments, speak soon!

Restaurant Review- Dakota Deluxe Glasgow

glasgow restaurant, restaurant review, glasgow blogger, luxury scottish hotels,
Source- here

About
Dakota Hotels are jointly owned by McCulloch Unique Hotels & Evans Property Group. They are lifestyle hotels specialising in that boutique & luxurious aesthetic. All three (there are big plans for more openings!) have a restaurant attached to them, plus, all three reside in Scotland with two being in Glasgow. The newest addition to the club is more in the heart of Glasgow rather than the outskirts. Its also slightly different to the other two, it is a Dakota Deluxe. They are supposed to have a more polished feel to them, which I have to say, I did feel this as we were walking through the entrance. The Deluxe versions are also meant to have bigger bedrooms, to suit the needs of city travellers. So on this occasion, we were only sampling the restaurant! Which is great even if you aren't looking to stay for the night.

Experience
So being the last minute, unprepared people that we are, we booked a table the night before New Year's Day... We still managed to get a table during the day for lunch, but we didn't really mind the time (I'm not even going to tell you what we had for dinner that night after this beautiful meal). As we arrived the main entrance seemed to be closed, so we entered through the hotels' instead. Being the nervous & hungry nelly I am, we arrived a little bit earlier just in case the traffic was bad. It was not. So we were told by the restaurant receptionist that we may have to wait in the waiting area for a few minutes, but being the fuss-free people we are it wasn't an issue. She quickly came back to let us know there was, in fact, a table free for us. The restaurant is beneath the hotel itself and it isn't huge. It has a nice quaint feel to it, with their signature dark and moody vibe. I probably should mention that I have eaten at a Dakota restaurant before (twice actually), the only difference is that this time it was Deluxe. Fancy eh?

 Our waiter really was great, he was smiley, chatty and very attentive to what we needed. Plus, there was just enough small chat. To be honest, I was probably doing most of the chatting. As my husband, Chris, always like to point out that I chat too much! It was welcoming without being too overbearing at the same time. I was especially impressed since it was New Years Day! I always feel slightly guilty on days like this, I'm a fellow boxing day worker myself... Personally, if the waiter looks miserable or like they couldn't give two f**ks it puts me off. It affects the whole experience and meal. A pretend smile isn't too much to ask for, is it? There was enough time left between each meal as well. Sometimes this can be an issue in restaurants, but I didn't feel as if we were being rushed out the door. We were still only there for around an hour and a half, but I feel this always the case when there's just two of you. Or you aren't having as many courses.

Food
Oh, my, the food. Where to start? Chris & I had been eyeing up the deluxe hotel ever since we heard there was one arriving or had arrived. And boy, oh boy we were not let down! When trying new restaurants it's always tricky to not go for something you are used too. I like to try something different that I've maybe not seen before elsewhere, or something that I have tried so I can compare. First, we were served a complimentary appetiser. They seem to do this at all Dakota restaurants. It was heavenly goats cheese in a tomato sauce, with a side of small heated crusted loaf. As you can imagine, It went down a treat and an empty board was carried away... Then, onto the appetisers. As I said earlier, I either go for something completely new or something I enjoy with a different spin. Sometimes, I just go for a favourite so I can compare... Scallops always have and always will be a firm favourite of mine to start with. The way they are presented and how they are accompanied can be different, though. I loved the way they were served, they tasted amazing & not rubbery at all plus I enjoyed mostly what they were served with (I can't stand onions).

For those of you wondering, I did actually take them out of the shell. I'm too clumsy of a human being to eat like that... So as you can imagine I was really enjoying my meal. So for my main, oh my god my main. It was seriously really good! I have never tasted food like it I've had things similar but not with these ingredients. So I had roast loin of venison with a blackberry jus, butternut squash & herb gnocchi. It was absolutely delicious. The gnocchi & butternut squash had a slight sweetness to them, but it wasn't over the top. Along with slightly bitter blackberries & venison, the tastes were all evened out lovely. I do have to say, I could have taken my venison slightly pinker though, I can pretty much eat meat walking out the field... Apart from that, I really can not fault it at all. Because it was a special occasion (trying out this restaurant and 2017s' first day) we decided to push ourselves and have a pudding as well. I probably shouldn't have as I really struggled, it was super tasty as well. The ice cream wasn't too powerful, and because the chocolate part was a mousse it was quite light as well.

Personal Thoughts
I really did enjoy it, its probably one of my favourite meals to date. I'm not going to lie though, I do have s soft spot for the Dakota franchise... As I said I thoroughly enjoyed everything a part from the meat not being quite to my peronal taste. I'm hoping to go back and try more of the menu sometime. Maybe I could do a revisit review? Or just a general post? I would definitely recommend this to anyone who asked, I think its a great restaurant with some great food, plus I'm a huge advocate for supporting local! I think if you have a special occasion or just want to celebrate in general, then its the perfect place to do that as you won't be disappointed. There's a great choice of things to choose from on the menu, some of it is quite different though! So you just have to be brave & trust the chefs!

Why Is It Always So Cold?

So this is my first official outfit post of 2017! Yay! It feels so so so good to be posting something like this again. I know in my birthday post I talked about sharing different topics here, but outfit posts are where I started! Fashion, is, has been and always will be a staple topic on here! Its something that really is a huge and important part of who I am as a person... I love creating looks, especially ones to match my different moods. Just the way beauty gurus have more than one look, I'm the same with my outfits. Sometimes, I love the cute girly look with a lovely dress and some cute heels. Then other days i'm feeling nothing but rock n grungy vibes. I do feel I'll always channel that inner rock child though, its where i've always felt my most comfortable. Plus, I just love really edgy and cool clothes. Especially those with the grungy 90s vibe.

I think wherever I am in my life, no matter what I'm doing, I think I will always express myself through clothes and dressing up. I enjoy being able to make myself different everyday and I enjoy too many styles and items of clothing to limit myself to just one strict box! In the next year I'm really looking forward to pushing myself style-wise as well as artistically. I'm also looking forward to what type of content I'm able to create for youtube this year. I think youtube really helps you to express or share yourself in ways that blogging can't. For one, straight off the bat I feel it's more personal. Just because its a live image of yourself.

I was saying earlier tonight to my husband Chris, no matter where the whole online industry goes, I will always blog. I know many are saying that instagram & snapchat are where its going, but many of the online generation came from blogging. I doubt that it will be brushed aside that easily. Plus, they also say this about new forms of entertainment. When the t.v first came out that was to be the end of the radio generation. Yet we still turn it on every single day. Its the same for traditional tv, many are now flocking to online forms of video entertainment. Whether its youtube, twitch of even vevo. There is always going to be the next big new thing, but it doesn't always mean the end of something! Anyways, more outfit posts following soon! Already so much planned for this year.

Outfit Details
I wore this yesterday and wanted to keep it quit casual & comfy. As well as significantly warm and full of layers. We were off for our first weekly shop of the year, so I didn't need a huge jacket. When doing indoor things, I like to keep my jacket quite light with an extra layer like a cardigan on underneath. I didn't want to keep going for the slightly oversized black tee, so opted for this fun red one instead. I kept the colour of my lipstick within the same family. I thought the tight pencil skirt was a cute add to the oversized/casual look, plus I enjoyed pairing it with a more dressed down look. Since I'm always wearing this little black bag, I thought it would be rude not to use it again. Plus its great everyday bag fits the essentials!
