Reasons to get laser eye surgery and other stories

5. I was 5 when I was first told I was going to need to wear glasses. And as you can imagine, I took it about as well as any 5 year old who's told she's going to be different would. I cried my fucking eyes out. I was pointy with shocking white hair, and with my NHS specs I resembled someones very tiny and very weird Grandma. And if you think the other kids didn't notice this, well, you have another thing coming.

Time to Try Chaophraya

It's all very big. Which shouldn't come as much surprise. Popular Thai chain Chaophraya cater in creating dramatic destination dining across Europe and the former Royal Academy of Music and Drama has been their home since they came to Glasgow. Retaining many of the original features (expect famous composers busts adorning the wall as you make your way around the impressive venue) next to giant gold brushed Buddhas, a trip to Chaophraya at the very least is worth it for the interiors alone. That said, with an extensive cocktail menu and a rich and varied menu, there's a few other solid reasons to pay them a visit. A slight disclaimer: Come Hungry.

I Don't Think You're Ready for These Jellies

Sun Jellies live in that beautiful grey area where you're not quite sure if it's some elaborate kitchy home wear or a handbag. The easy answer is of course, both. The vintage inspired bags, made entirely of recycled plastic read as a bit of a love letter to mid-century retroism crossed with some old school 90s nostalgia. So, I guess we're ticking a lot of boxes from the get go right?  And what better way to celebrate new styles, new colours, and bad ass business bitches that with an afternoon tea with some of your favourite people?  Coupling cake with colour therapy (and a killer collaboration with my beloved Karen Mabon) is the perfect pick me up and if there's a finer way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Glasgow, well I'm yet to hear it.

Capital C Changes - New Flat Times

Here's the abridged version. The last few months have been nothing if not transformative. It's been devastating, and fulfilling, with a big old dash of fear and hope and all the emotional whiplash you can expect from any Big Change. Like capital C Change.  In short - I started a new job, my husband and I parted ways and uh, I moved out the flat I've lived in for 10 years to a flat share with some complete strangers. I did however keep the cat. So y'know, there's that.
