Cafe Circa (Abernyte) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I felt like a drive and Perth was on my hit list, so I got up and took a drive to Perth.

Before going to the town centre I stopped by the Scottish Antiques and Arts Centre and popped into Cafe Circa for a spot of lunch.


Bacon, Brie & Cranberry Ciabatta £9.95

I saw a few things that sounded nice, but this caught my eye.

On arrival this looked very nice, and I couldn’t wait to dig right in as I was very hungry.

I took a nice big bite and ohh this was nice….flavour wise just ok as the bacon was the strongest flavour here but overall it was just nice.

I liked the little shop near the cafe, as they did a lot of really nice looking products.

Afternoon Tea for 2 at Edinburgh Woollen Mill Restaurant (Moffat) 2022: Review

Visit : 

The Visit

I fancied a random drive today and thought let’s take a visit to Gretna Green, and on route I stopped here for a snack and spotted they did a tea for 2.

The afternoon tea here was of excellent value at £15.00

The Afternoon Tea

After ordering the Afternoon tea they told us they had run out of cupcakes and to pick one of the tray bakes.

We grabbed a seat and then it arrived.

For £15 this was amazing value!

Everything today was very fresh, tasty and really moreish! The only down point was the cream was not clotted cream but that’s a personal preference.

If you are in the area or passing, this is a great stop for a snack or something.

This afternoon tea is of amazing value and everything was very fresh and tasty.

5 Options When You Start To Lose Your Hair

When you first notice that you’re starting to lose your hair, it can be an alarming experience. It’s a sign you’re succumbing to the effects of old age, and once your hair goes, it won’t grow back. But before you start panicking, it’s important to remember that hair loss is a natural part of life, particularly if you’re a man. It is simply something that happens when you get older, and it’s not something to stress about.

There are so many bald men who look great and rock their smooth, shiny heads with pride, such as Bruce Willis, Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Your receding hairline is much more of an issue in your own mind than anyone else’s.

But if you are feeling self-conscious about your hair loss, there are options. From covering it up to more extensive treatments, there are things you can do to take the focus off your baldness and feel better about yourself. Here are five options to consider.

Cover it up

The easiest way to mask your hair loss is to simply cover it up. Wear a hat when out in public, and make your headwear part of your personal style. Have a range of baseball caps and beanies to alternate between, or you could even go more extreme and opt for more unusual garments like fedoras, cowboy hats, or bandannas. This way, you can feel confident when out and about, safe in the knowledge that your receding hairline is safely concealed.

Change your hairstyle

Perhaps hats aren’t your thing, or you prefer the show off the beautiful hair you’ve still got while it remains. In this case, there are ways to be smart with your hairstyle in order to cover up those pesky bald patches. Speak to your barber or hairstylist and ask them what they can do to conceal your hair loss. Using different lengths, textures and style, anyone who gazes upon your head will be none the wiser.

Get a wig

If your hairloss has advanced significantly, you may opt to wear a wig or toupee. These hair replacements are usually made from authentic hair and are convincing enough to look like the real thing. There are all kinds of styles and colours available to choose from.

Scalp micropigmentation

The aforementioned options are all temporary solutions, but there are also treatments with a more permanent and convincing effect. Scalp micropigmentation is one such example of this. But what is scalp micropigmentation (SMP)? Simply put, it is a non-invasive, non-surgical hair loss treatment that involves placing tiny deposits of carbon pigment into your scalp. This works almost like millions of tiny tattoos, creating an illusion of a full head of shaven hair.

Embrace it

The final option for coping with hair loss is to accept it. Losing your chair doesn’t change who you are, and it is nothing to be ashamed about. Learn to adapt your look to embrace your lack of hair, and work on building your confidence and your self esteem. When you’re not constantly trying to change yourself, your mental health will be stronger and you will experience a higher quality of life.
