Q&A with Ethical Clothing Brand OTSO

This week I have teamed up with UK based clothing brand Otso to get to know them a little better.

Afternoon hike – Ben A’an

A sunny morning in Glasgow - so Adele and I decide to go for a wee jolly up Ben A'an. Reasons being - I've never been up Ben A'an before, it is small enough to do in a short afternoon and Adele told me she'd never climbed a hill before. Say what!

I am suitably windswept and windburnt to call myself a yachty now... although I'm not sure that's really a trend I want to … Continue reading Sailing Jolanda

Glasgow Food Map (Summer eats)

BreakfastBramble Cafe Giffnock I can not fault this place. Wonderful fresh food, great service and spotlessly clean. The cafe is small, so sometimes I've had to wait for a table... but absolutely worth it. Delicious cakes for after, and fantastic coffee. BrunchCafe Strange Brew ALWAYS busy, but for good reason. I could shout about these … Continue reading Glasgow Food Map (Summer eats)
