Lunch Breaks & Carrot Cakes



Today was the equivalent of a Saharan heatwave for us Glaswegians. The first sign of proper sun rays that actually stay out for longer than twenty minutes is an absolute feat in this city and like a true Scottish individual when there's any sign of sun, I shoved on my sunnies and left the coat at home. I didn't go quite as far as some people I saw in short-shorts, flip flops and sun hats however, slathering each other in sun tan lotion. To be fair, I'm surprised I didn't burn to a crisp as soon as sunlight touched my face, it's been that long since I've felt or seen it. Even the cats were out basking. Hello cat.

Anyway, as it was so nice today we ventured out of the vending machine fest that is the library cafe and went for a nice lunch to Naked Soup and sat outside to soak up some rays. The best place for a cheap, healthy breakfast or lunch in the West End, you can never go wrong with a Naked Soup badboy. Their carrot cake is also so yummy I think cherubs must have made it (note empty plate, crumbs and slobbery fork.) I was feeling like wearing a very comfy set of clothes today as I was just library bound as usual (see previous post: pyjamas in library) so  there isn't much to it - just a baggy vintage shirt, the necklace I currently like to wear with everything and some shiny leggings. But I just wanted to get the old camera out and get some snaps while everything looked summery and bright as tomorrow, let's face it, it'll probably be snowing again!

  2. This is such a nice post :) It's like that down in Yorkshire - bit of sun = ditch the coat and sprint to the nearest cafe/bar for an outside table!

    You really are so beautiful and you look so casual and chic :) sometimes simple outgfits look the best as when you feel comfortable, you feel way more confident..

    Love Em x

    1. I know haha - it's mental, we're just so unused to anything that's not clouds or rain haha! Thank you so much, that's so nice of you, and you're definitely right, I always feel way more comfortable in something baggy, if you're in something too tight you're always kind of aware of yourself! Hope the sunshine lasts in Yorkshire! Where abouts is it you stay? I used to live in Scarborough! :)

      Love, Megan xxxx
