October Round up

16:00:00

Goodbye October, hello November.
As another month kicks off I thought I'd do a quick post rounding up the last month, talking about what I've been up to and about my where I've ate, where I've been and what else I've been up to!

Food

Paesano Pizza

If you've somehow managed to miss me rambling on about Paesano Pizza, the I urge you to check out my post on why I think you should go visit, and then actually go visit them. With it turning November, which means the start of Christmas shopping (wow, that time again?) it's the perfect spot to grab a quick and delicious bite in the city centre after hitting the shops.

Chompsky food van

The debut of Glasgow's first food truck did not disappoint (read the full post here). Located in the West End on Kelvin way, this food truck makes some delicious fresh food which is worth the trip over. With a menu that changes periodically you'd be best to check it out on their facebook or twitter before heading over - but I'm pretty sure regardless of what it is - it will be great. You can also find them in a pop-up shop in the food court at Buchanan Galleries.

The Hope Bar and Restaurant

Another ideal stop to get some warmth, a pint, and a scran after some Nestled. Charlotte had the chance to review here and you can read my full post here. Nestled on Waterloo Street just seconds away from Central Station, it makes for the perfect spot before heading for the train. High-end pub food that will do the job after a long day, I'd recommend the Chicken drumsticks and Burger with cheese and bacon washed down with a pint of St. Mungo. Perfect.

Wasted Little Travels

Paris

Despite having gone at the beginning of August, I only really a chance to post about our trip to Paris in October! I took Charlotte away for her 21st birthday and we stayed in the BEAUTIFUL Montmartre area near the Sacre Coeur. We spent 4 full days in this amazing city, dedicating one full day in Disneyland Paris. We had an absolutely amazing (but very busy!) time, and you can read my posts so far here and here.

Paris - August 2016

Croatia

After a very busy and hectic city break in Paris, we were both quite ready for a chilled out pool holiday. After searching for what felt like months we finally managed to book to go away at the beginning of October. We got an incredible deal to stay at the brilliant Lafodia Hotel on Lopud Island, which is around a 40-minute ferry from Dubrovnik. We basically spent a week relaxing, drinking cocktails and when the sun made an appearance chilling out at either the beach or pool bar. Read more about our holiday here!

General Life

When I've not been sunbathing or eating out for dinner I've been working lots. I've recently upped my hours in work from 14 to 35 per week and started doing 12-hour shifts 3 days a week. Although it sounds horrendous it's working pretty well as it gives me my Mondays and Tuesdays to work on my blog and search for digital marketing roles.
If you read my post The Next Storm, which is about my goals for the year, it outlined how I'm looking to get a job working in digital marketing or social media. October has been a pretty good month for working towards this with some promising conversations which I'm hoping may lead to work. I really think my blog has had a really positive impact in creating these opportunities which I'm really happy about as that was one of my main motivations for starting it!
In my actual spare time when I've not been working or job hunting, I've spent a lot of time watching my team Celtic and/or out with friends in the pub. We've had a crazy set of fixtures recently, but it's been great going to these or watching them with my dad which is always good.
