Little Italy (West End, Glasgow) : Review

V: 7th November 2020


** This was typed up before lockdown 2.0, please check the restaurant to see if they do takeaway or visit it when it reopens**

Since I was back here I had to try new dishes, even though the Focaccia from last time was sooo good.

Stuffed Mushrooms £4.50

I opted for this, and on arrival, the presentation was really nice and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

The cheese, onions and mushroom all worked very well together.

I was very impressed with the flavours of this dish, and would have it again.

Pizza Slice (Pepperoni)

After the starter, I opted to go for a pizza slice and pepperoni as my topping.

This was a very good sized portion, and mmm very nice. The pepperoni was really nice, and every bite was very tasty.

For a slice this was very filling, and I cant wait to try more pizza or slices at my next visit.

The MB Fairy – Treat Box (Glasgow) : Review


I got gifted a box previously from The MB Fairy, and said I would order again….and I did. This time I said to surprise me as everything looked good, and I couldn’t make my mind up.

If you check out her instagram page @thembfairy you will see how good everything looks.⠀

Treat Box Contents

Now it was tasting time 🙂

Old School Cake

Cast your mind back to high school and the cakes you used to get there, this is exactly that but 100% much nicer.

I purchased a box of treats from @thembfairy as previously I got gifted some, and they were very good so I had to get more.

As I said this was just like the old school cake, but it was much nicer and super moreish!!!

Mars Bar Cake

Next from my treat box to try was the Mars Bar Cake, this looked good and I am a big fan of Mar Bars.

I cut these up and took a bite and instantly mmm I could taste the chocolate, the mars bar and the crispys…..this was a perfect bite and before I knew it the portion was finished.

This was a solid 5/5 for me⠀

Crunchie Tiffin

Next from my treat box to try was the Crunchie Tiffin , this looked good I couldn’t wait to dig in.

I took a big bite of this and I loved the texture, flavour and again wow so good. I think the flavour and texture is what made this really good to eat mmm

I could have easily had more and more of this one.⠀

Millionaires Shortbread

I am mega fussy when it comes to any kind of shortbread, caramel or millionaires etc etc why? I have always found that there is either too much base or too much topping and not enough of the middle part.

As you can see from the photos this had a good-sized middle and a nice balanced base and top, now it was time to taste.

Perfection! Everything worked really well and had a really yummy flavour! Now, this is how you make these!

A solid 5/5

Maltesers Brownie

And there’s more….⠀

This was a great selection I got from @thembfairy and now it was time to taste the Malteser Brownie.⠀

As you can see from the photos these looked really good, then again everything I got looked and tasted good so now time to dig in.⠀

This was very nice, its exactly as how you would expect it to taste and like the others mega moreish.⠀

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of these amazing sweet treats.

This really hit my sweet tooth more than once, and was amazing from first bite to the very last crumb.

If you liked what you saw, or have a sweet tooth like me then head on over to the MB Fairys instagram page @thembfairy and send her a message for an order or two.

Overall Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Bagging my 3rd (Ben Narnain) and 4th Munro (Ben Chonzie)


I couldnt stop at 2 Munro’s I wanted to see how many I could do, and I managed to bag 4 Munro’s in a month which is good going for me.

See my previous post here to see what my first two Munro’s were.

My 3rd Munro was Ben Narnain (926M (3,038 FT)

For me this was probably the hardest out the 4, as there were parts you had to climb more and it felt steeper but that could have just been me.

At one part near the start I will admit I nearly gave up, as I have been going through a rough patch recently and it hit me very hard all the emotions etc, plus the day I was doing this I should have been celebrating something else which sadly I wasn’t.

The people I was with, gave me lots of support and I found the strength in the them and in me to go onward and upwards.

I was so glad that I did as the view from the top, plus the feeling of achieving another Munro was amazing. I would have preferred to celebrate the other thing, but this was the next best thing.

My 4th Munro was Ben Chonzie (931m (3,054 ft)

After experiencing Ben Narnain this got me to mentally prepare and be ready for anything, as they were all different so far.

This was an interesting one, firstly the route there was a long narrow winding road and this had a path for about 80% of it.

The first 60% was a nice little walk then you started to feel the incline, and then it was marsh to the top. Today as you will see from the photos below, was very cloudy so I knew not to expect a great view but hey it was still my 4th Munro.

This Munro was my first where I actually had the correct gear, as the previous ones I wore my jeans and didn’t have gaiters etc but this one all my gear arrived and worked well 🙂

I enjoyed this one as it was more of a walk than climb, as it allowed me to just focus on where I was going rather than many things at once.

I will need to get some new hiking boots, but for now these ones will be fine.
