Hello my beautiful people! The sun is shining and there’s a chill in the air. I’m not a massive fan of autumn but on days like these I can’t help but love it. It feels like Christmas is slowly closing in as the temperature is dropping and Halloween is now over.
Today is the day, this evening we’ll know whether Jamie is Scotland’s mixologist of the year. We’re both so nervous but excited to see how it goes this evening. Last night I was running around the flat packing all my stuff for Jamie to bring to the hotel so I can go straight there after I’ve had my make up done once I’ve finished work. I’m going to Bobby Brown to have my face glammed up and then at the hotel I’ll curl my hair and get dressed. Can’t wait for the evening to arrive! Before then I’ve got a day of work and a couple of meetings so I think this work day will just fly by! I need to run to the shops as well to grab some bits I’ll need such as hairspray and other exciting things.
I can’t remember if I mentioned it here or not but two weekends ago Jamie and I went to Whole Foods. I must’ve mentioned it here! I love Whole Foods so it would’ve been very strange if I hadn’t said anything… Either way, we were there two weekends ago and I of course stocked up on snacks I could try out that I haven’t come across elsewhere in Glasgow. One of these was the snack bar from LoveRaw.
It is my recent obsession with cacao nibs that made me want to try it out and chocolate is always nice. Funny coming from me seeing as I really disliked chocolate as a child. I know, I was a weird child… I still don’t like milk chocolate at all. The darker the better! Anyway, the addition of maca powder in this bar made me even more intrigued ! To be honest, I didn’t really taste much of the maca in it but the cacao nibs gave it a nice crunchy texture. It was a tasty bar with a nice darker chocolate flavour. Nothing super special, I would get it again if I came across but wouldn’t go out of my way to get it again. A big bonus is that it’s organic, not a lot of store bought bars like these are. So big thumbs up for that.
Please please please cross you fingers for Jamie tonight! I can’t wait to see how it goes!
Have a beautiful day,
