Act Casual


The other day I had a day off work so we went into Glasgow under the pretence of going to see Glasgow University. Like any good “under the pretence” trip, we spent more time going on a roundabout route to the university than we spent there.
First thing we intended to do after getting off the train was to go to YO Sushi for lunch. But instead we spent twenty or so minutes drifting through the House of Fraser it is in. The building is probably Victorian or Georgian – I'm not too sure – and even though everything was way about my price range, the building and atmosphere was nice. They had put up their Christmas lights which was exciting, because who doesn’t get excited by Christmas lights. 


We finally sat down to eat at YO Sushi. YO sushi is great for those who want to be adventurous but at the same time are sort of scared. The sushi is very recognisable and most of it is fully explained in the menu. The conveyor belt system is great because it meant I could be adventurous and try some of the things I wouldn’t normally. 




Once we had finished and had explored the market in a backstreet off Buchannan Street, we got the subway to the west end. We did our compulsory rummage through the vintage shops off Byres Road, and by the time we finally got to the university it was 4 o’clock and getting dark. 



(Look at this scary Santa on the Ted Baker display)  


I didn’t really get anything from us awkwardly drifting around the area about the university except that the main building looked like Hogwarts. But I had fun getting there which is what counts. 


 I didn’t get any pictures of my outfit in Glasgow because it was busy in the main area and had got dark quickly so these are more of a re-enactment in my back garden.




I had my eye on this jumper for a while. It was from the men’s section but like I previously said, men’s jumpers are usually in nicer, more muted colours. If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen that this jumper has become a bit of a staple for me because it’s so warm and I love the colours. It’s probably the most casual outfit I have worn on this blog so far, but it is far too cold now for anything else.






I'm wearing:
Jumper from Primark for £15 in the men’s section
Grey skinny jeans from primark
Boots from Primark from a while ago 
Comic book bag this is my go-to bag as its can hold so much and is comfortable to carry. It even has an amazing Spiderman 2 spoiler on it! 

Today I'm listening to:



Keep an eye out for my new video - which I will try to post by next Tuesday - about Christmas gifts I got people this year. (I should just call my blog my Adventures in Primark)  If you want notified when I post this or anything new, follow me on one of my sites listed on the side of my blog because I usually mention on them when I’ve posted.

So what do you think of this more blog-y blogging style? Do you like it better than my normal, less about me and more about the clothes posts? And if you go to Glasgow University, what do you think of it there?

Have a very merry Christmas and I’ll see you in the New Year!

  4. Your trips sound like so much fun :) I love sushi, though I wish I was more adventurous while choosing my order (I always end up ordering the same thing as my friend, sice she is a true sushi addict :D).

    1. Yo sushi is great for that: you don't have to order, its on a conveyor belt and you just grab whatever looks nice

Raccoons and Ringlets

After we went swimming the other day, I just let my hair dry naturally. This produced what has been dubbed as my “triangle hair”. My hair usually curls tighter when I leave it, but I’ve been straightening it a lot more often and it seems to have melted my hair or something because the last couple of times it was just straight frizz. The lighting is terrible in all these pictures so if I look a little red that’s why. The jumper I'm wearing is from the men’s section. I find that guy’s jumpers are a lot warmer and the neck-line is so high, you don’t need a scarf. In Primark specifically, the men’s jumpers seem to be less itchy and wash a lot better as they don’t shrink as badly. The styles are usually very similar to the woman’s and they seem to be in more muted colours which is something I particularly like.      I'm wearing: Jumper from Primark (they are  usually  £6 but I managed to get mine at the start of summer for £3.)

M7974 at Ardoch Roman Fort

Last Autumn, I got a swatch of this lovely Atelier Brunette Viscose Crepe . At the time I was looking for a lining to a jacket (that I’m still working on) but it didn’t quite fit the bill. I absolutely loved the fabric though, so I kept the swatch. I had put off getting more to make a full garment because I didn’t trust myself to make something nice enough from it. At the time, I probably only sewed once a week for about 3 hours and the things I made were full of mistakes and dumb fabric choices. I’m going to stick some of these up on my blog at some point but even though I was proud of the fact I could make then, I didn’t really enjoy wearing the clothes enough to justify investing in nice fabric. Another issue was that I couldn’t decide on what to make from the fabric. I was jumping between a blouse or a wrap dress but none of my ideas felt perfect. I really liked the M7974 but I had it in my head that I only wanted to make view C in a light weight linen like fabric and

Writers block

So I haven’t posted in the last couple of weeks. I had everything ready for posting back however many Thursdays ago it was that I was supposed to post this except for the text. I had no idea what to write for it. I am the first to admit that I'm not very good at writing for this anyway. I’ve never been very good with non-fiction writing. It doesn’t come very easily to me and nothing interesting enough to write about ever happens to me. But ever since people I know in real life started reading this, I feel as though I should be better at this; and my technique for things I don’t think I'm very good at yet, put them off until last minute. One thing with not blogging as frequently as I promised is that even though I have had my hair short for over a month but I haven’t put any pictures up on here. I really like it; I'm even considering cutting it even shorter. I also want to dye it. I’ve never dyed all my hair a different colour; I had it dip-dyed r
