My Short Trip To Millport

27 June 2017


Today is a relatively short post, because there isn't a whole lot of travelling going on in my life at the minute. I'm still working out a budget for when I go travelling, and I don't want to start planning anything until I know how much money I'm gonna have. Saying that, however, at the weekend I had a rare Sunday off work! In fact, not only did I have the Sunday off, but my granda was free, my uncle was off work and my mum took the Sunday off from car booting, and so my granda suggested we take a trip over to Millport, on Great Cumbrae - one of the Scottish islands just off the coast at Largs.

Why I Don't Drink Caffeine

24 June 2017


A while ago I did an experiement where I went through a whole month without drinking fizzy drinks, sweets (dessert didnt count - only snack sweets) and pizza. (YES. I WENT A MONTH WITHOUT PIZZA.) to see if I could break a habit, because it apparently takes 22 days to break one. I chose sweets to encourage me to eat healthier snacks, pizza to encourage me to eat something new, and fizzy drinks after I recalled a Chemistry experiement my friend conducted at high school that I took part of, where the higher the amount of caffeine I took in (pill form), the slower my pulse was.

A Hair Raising Scheme

20 June 2017


Tuesday's come around again so quickly, hasn't it? Today's post is a little different, and has a loose connection to travel.

You all know that I'm planning on going travelling at the beginning of next year, and you also know that I'm in the process of trying to save some money in order to make the most of the time I'll be away and, well... I've set up a go fund me page.

Now, I'm not asking you to donate just so that I can live a life of luxury, of course not, so I wanted to let you know why I've made this page, and how you can help.

Things I've Learned From Others

17 June 2017


This is a post idea I've had for a really long time, and it's something that I know I can add to later in the future as well. We all evolve as we begin to meet and interact with new people, and that's not a bad thing. Personally, I'm a completely different person to who I was 5 years ago. Even just two years ago! And the change has absolutely been for the better. I like who I am now, even if there are still a few things I'd like to change about myself. But, this post isn't about that. It's about celebrating the parts of me that I owe to a few of the people I've met so far in my life.

I also want to point out how much influence music has on me. If you tell me your favourite song or band, I'm more inclined to listen to it, because it helps me feel like I can get to know you a lot better. And, chances are, I begin to like that song or band, too.

6 Ways I Prepare For A Coach Trip

13 June 2017


I take the coach a lot. Like, an awful lot. I've written a review about my Megabus Gold experience, and I've travelled frequently with National Express as well. But to be totally honest with you, I can't stand getting on the coach. They're long, they're clammy and they take forever - which isn't fun when you're a person who can't sleep on public transport very easily.

Parlez Vous Une Langue Étrangère....?

11 June 2017


Sorry this post is a wee bit late, I'm up in Inverness staying with my best bae, Jasmine, to celebrate her adorable daughter's FIRST birthday. Rinoa is ONE. HOW?!

I haven't done a language post in a little while so I thought, "well hey, maybe I should talk about how I'm getting on learning a new language!"

Gailypi's Excellent Adventure

06 June 2017


Thanks for joining my second 'Travel Tuesday' post! I almost didn't have a post for this week - which would have been outrageously idiotic for me, so today's post is a relatively short one, but also one which I feel may be of interest to a bunch of you.

Pizza Punks | Review

03 June 2017


A couple of weeks ago, I went to Pizza Punks with Morag after we went to the She Reads Comics event at Forbidden Planet, Glasgow. Now, I really, really like pizza, and I've been to Pizza Punks once before and I really liked it. Morag has also ordered deliveries from them for a while, and we were struggling to think of where we could go together for food we both like and can eat, so this seemed like the perfect option.
