It’s bank holiday weekend and while sitting in bed and binge watching Grey’s Anatomy is tempting (super tempting) you’ll be doing yourself a huge disservice. Glasgow is essentially turning it out at the moment, what with the launch of a dessert parlor on my doorstep, braid bars and bag giveaways, it’s giving you every reason to get up and go this weekend.
First up it’s St Enoch Centre with their Handbags and Gladrags event running the 23rd and 24th. Celebrating the finishing touches of any outfit, they’ll have in centre giveaways. With gift cards and beauty goodies you’ll be able to pick up something pretty spectacular from any of their retaillers. While H&M might be my usual stomping ground I couldn’t help picking up a novelty trashy bag. “Follow Your Heart” indeed. Floozie scratch a particular itch with their kitschy red and pink colour combos. And let’s face it who doesn’t need a heart shaped bag?
Dress – H&M
Necklace – Joy
Bags – Both Floozie @ Debenhams at St Enoch Centre
Shoes – Topshop
Festival season is hotting up and obviously Glasgow’s hottest style and colour bar BLOW (it’s official as of last week guys, BLOW are multi-award winning) for braids, cider and styling as Topshop roll out west for a Finneston high street take over. Magners cider have drinks on tap for that true festival vibe, with personal stylist Alice Mccolm on the floor between 10-6 to answer your style questions. BTW guys – it’s going to include a lot of fringing. Topshop‘s personal styling service is free all year round and can find you the perfect outfit from a night out to a full revamp. Gusto will be on hand with a bunch of desserts to chow down on as you enjoy a complimentary braid bar for one weekend only. How often do you get a chance to get your hair did by one of the best hair stylists in Scotland? Oh yeah, and the chance to win £100 to spend in Topshop? HALLO.
For me though my weekend is looking to be a host of family dinners as well as the annual Eurovision binge watch (don’t try and pretend you don’t love it.) Basically, the perfect end to a weekend of shopping a hurr. What’s your top picks for the Bank Holiday weekend?
