Wander Through My Week #5

Hey! Hope everyone is well and had a great week! Mine has been a little up and down (there’s been some personal stuff going on but things are okay!) but overall, I’m pretty good! Here are some highlights of my week.

Largs (Again!!) 

My friend Nikki and i headed down to the coast and I ended up in Largs again! It was one of those days when it was ridiculously hot and it was so gorgeous! We went down for lunch and a bit of a wander along the front, browsing in a few gift shops. We ended up Tony Macaroni for lunch (they do a really good lunch offer, would highly recommend it!) and I had the best goats cheese salad I have ever tasted!

I was so glad I ordered it! It didn’t sound like much on the menu, but it was one of the tastiest goats cheese salads I have ever had! It was crammed with walnuts (I’m obsessed with walnuts in my salads) and yep, highly recommended! After we walked off lunch, we headed for some ice cream and I got a tub of Mr Whippy! I know, I know Largs has Nardinis (which offers some of the best ice cream flavours!) but I was really in the mood for some whipped ice cream goodness! Overall, it was a lovely day and nice to get some sunshine!

Cocktails & Manta 

On Friday night my friend and I headed to October which like Barca (see this WTMW) is in Princes Square and is such a nice bar & restaurant. I started with a mojito (big hello to my #MOJITO girls!) and had a few others! Dessert was Passion Fruit Daiquiri Cheesecake – wow!! I’m not generally a big cheesecake fan but this was yummy! And yeah, I forgot to take pictures of the entire night, sorry!

After a good few hours eating, drinking, chatting and laughing a LOT, we headed to see my friends band play in King Tuts. We arrived just in time for their set starting and it was really good. Manta are a heavy rock band and the four guys are all really talented. I would definitely recommend going to check them out: Manta Facebook

Well that was my week! Had a bit of a tough week but those were definitely the highlights and really cheered me up! What have you been up to? Let me know in the comments below or tweet me @thingsarahloves.

    Oh wow, that salad looks amazing! And so does Largs – I've never actually been to Scotland but would love to 🙂
    Sorry to hear you've had a tough week, hope you're ok!

      Hey Nicola!

      How are you? I'm doing better! And that really was an amazing salad! Scotland is amazing, I particularly enjoy going up to the Highlands – such beautiful scenery.

    That cheesecake sounds absolutely divine! But hey – at least this week there wasn't a fire. But that also means there were no cute firemen. Pros & cons!

      Yeah, no firemen this time. Pity! The cheesecake was so yummy, I really need to go back and actually take a picture this time! Hope you had a good week!
