Packing & goodbyes groundhog day

04. October 2015 Travel 0
Tomorrow marks the beginning of another adventure. I am going to New Zealand & starting my trip with a week in Asia – Singapore initially & probably Malaysia. Knowing me, I am obviously in packing hell. I can never decide what to take & I pack too much in an attempt to be resourceful & save ...

What I did on Thursday

29. September 2015 piercings 0
For reasons unbeknown to me, I am the proud owner of a nipple piercing. I went to one tattoo & piercing salon in Belfast & they said I needed another adult to come in with me to get pierced as a nipple piercing was classed as an intimate piercing. This was disappointing as the only ...

Turn & face the strange. I am looking in the mirror facing a stranger. I am virtually unrecognisable to the me that looked into the mirror 1 month ago. For one I have went from abhorring sparkling water to enjoying & longing for it. And secondly, I took a wild notion to get my nipple pierced. So ...

Current mood

There’s something about taking the bus on a Monday morning in agony with period pain to into town to go to my nearest bank & seeing that it is closed that pisses me off. I don’t just mean pisses me off in a vague way. I mean kick me in the crotch, grinding my soul & ...

I expected more

It has been about 3 months since I embarked on my better eating habits. I cut coffee out of my life, no easy feat for me, & I reduced my sugar intake. I don’t eat cereal which was my favourite handy snack food, I don’t drink fizzy drinks, I don’t use sugar in cooking or ...

My boss has got me tickets to the Italian Grand Prix! If you don’t know, I am a massive Formula 1 fan. I never miss a race, I done my final piece in university about Formula 1 & have sent many CVs to the teams. I also have rejection letters from the teams & have ...

That irrepressible desire to book more flights *sigh*

02. September 2015 asia, Travel 0
Apparently not content with stopping over in Singapore on my way to NZ I have an overwhelming need to visit another country in Asia while I’m there. I have 1 weeks & I’m looking for travspiration (travel inspiration) of amazing places you have visited. My top wants on the list are: incredible sights, cheap massages, amazing ...

Planning Singapore

31. August 2015 asia, Travel, Travelling 0
One of my favourite things about travelling is the research prior to my adventure. When I see the images in books & online I feel a rise of excitement that I’m actually going to be there experiencing it. I am enraptured with this feeling & the seemingly idle meander of time until I get there. Next ...

3 weeks of clean living

As part of my ever present, although sometimes flagging, objective to be fit & healthy I am making my last 3 weeks in Switzerland count. Today I have went for a 5K run, followed by yoga with Adriene then I had avocado for breakfast. Avocado is my happy place & when I have avocado on toasted ...
