Another one of my favourite Scottish cities is Glasgow. I would describe it more as the modern day Scotland. I love the architecture of Glasgow and the colour of the city (that doesn't even make any sense to you does it?)
I have a lot of days off work at the moment so last week I booked a last minute bus ticket to Glasgow just to spend a little time away from dreary Aberdeen. I hit up the Gallery of Modern Art because there was a few exhibits I wanted to see. Who knew you could draw on some paper with biro and write on a post-it and have it framed for an exhibit? Fascinating!
I wanted to go to The Lighthouse which is a visitor centre that has a lot of design and architectural exhibits. *Side note* my brother did an exhibit there during his uni days and I got to go and see it. If you go up to the 6th floor, there is a viewing platform that it supposed to be really amazing but alas it was closed for a private event. Boo!
I ended up doing a little shopping, being payday and all. The new Forever 21 has opened so I had a little look inside. Oh em gee. It is so amazing! Three floors of amazing clothing and it's so much better laid out than the Oxford Street one in London. It has a mens and a plus sized section as well which was good to see.
The weather was so nice and although I ended up losing a nail polish on the way home (where did it go?), I had an amazing yet tiring day. I'm sure it won't be the last time I'll hit up Glasgow!
