Apothecary Fox is back!!

I am really not sure how to start off this post..you see things have taken a major turn for me and my life and this little blog has born the brunt of it. If you follow Apothecary Fox you will know that I left the UK about 18 months ago in search of a different life. One less driven by the day to day burdens and stresses of a very fast paced and pretty stressful life in the hospitality industry, and more focused on exploring my love of the handmade life.
Wellllllll.....I made a U-turn. It wasn't that I didn't love my new found life of handmade loveliness or that of the peaceful Vermont life. It was more that I realised I wasn't ready to let go of my career in restaurants and that an opportunity to take on an exciting project came my way. I literally couldn't resist, but it did take about 6 months of back and forth chat with my old bosses to convince me that I was making the right decision. So, I am back in the UK (Glasgow to be precise) and have spent the past 3 months opening a monster of a restaurant. Here is the story in pictures...

I have always been up for a challenge and this one was too good to resist. The biggest opening my company has done in over a decade, and a new and exciting city to explore! What is not to love about all of that? Browns Glasgow has made quite a splash and we have been open less than two months. Read some of the amazing reviews to get a sense of what we have all achieved with a whole heap of hard work! The Daily Record, The Herald, The Glasgow Evening Times, Bite Magazine, Dram Magazine and more to come I hope!

Anyway, I am sure you can appreciate the time and effort it has taken to make this transition but I pledge to you all that normal service will resume shortly. I realised that I just could not shake my love of this crazy world of restaurants and bars and wasn't ready to slow down. My heart belongs to Browns. I might well have known that all along. But....I am passionate about all the gorgeous design-led beauties I see around me everyday so that will always be high on my list of extra curricular activities. This blog will just have to be the way I indulge my love of the handmade for a few more years to come.

I can't express my gratitude to you all enough, for sticking with me through the months of silence, for your encouragement and design tips, and for your like-minded  interests that keep stearing me to new discoveries. Stick with me, and we will continue this beautiful adventure!

  1. Still sticking! Congrats on your new venture. What's that about good things being worth the wait? I'm sure you won't disappoint.

  2. Thanks Suzy!I so appreciate all those who have been through this journey with me, however random it may have seemed from the outside. I have had the most incredible 18 months imaginable and am so lucky to have landed a dream job at the end of it. xx
