Room Tour of The Sunborn Yacht Hotel, Docklands London

Room Tour of The Sunborn Yacht Hotel, Docklands London

I've been to London a lot recently and on one occasion work booked me in to the Sunborn Yacht Hotel in Docklands London. I've never been on a cruise ship before, so I was intrigued to board and to be honest, it was pretty much like a regular hotel. I'm sure it might feel different if it were bobbing through the waves, or, [...]

Zombie Apocalypse Training: Gym Motivation

Zombie Apocalypse Training: Gym Motivation

I don't like going to the gym. Some people do. They get a rush and they do multiple classes in one session, but I am not one of those people. However, I understand the need for regular exercise, despite doctors this week claiming it has very little effect on obesity (I am not obese though). So, I've had to rationalise it in my [...]

New Aussie Bodywash Review on YouTube

I've been posting on YouTube again. Check out my review for the new Aussie bodywash. Purveyors of fancy-smelling shampoo, Aussie, have come out with a new line of bodywash and well, I wasn't the most impressed with it. Watch my review below!

April Fools Day 2015

April Fools Day 2015

Happy April Fools Day 2015. It's just gone 9am and I've already happened upon several fools. You can read about previous fools from years gone by here and here. The first one I spotted was the Go Ape Tree Top Segway Experience. They sent me an email this morning and I was immediately suspicious, but I do actually think this was quite a [...]

7 Things I Learned About Relationships in 2014

7 Things I Learned About Relationships in 2014

2014 was a good year for me. I learned a lot about myself and others. There were some interesting lessons about relationships. You can be with the right person at the wrong time. A few years ago a friend of mine broke up with her boyfriend. After several years apart, but remaining friends, they got back together and are about to buy their [...]

Finally Stopped Procrastinating: Back On YouTube

Finally Stopped Procrastinating: Back On YouTube

After the wonderful catalyst that was a bloke coming in to work to motivate the team, I decided to stop procrastinating and realised that the time is now to get back to making videos. So, here is hopefully the first of many... Need to try and figure out the light though. It's still not right.

UPDATED: I Really Like You! The Carly Rae Jepsen Revival?

UPDATED: I Really Like You! The Carly Rae Jepsen Revival?

Last I heard of young Carly Rae Jepsen was that she'd happily retired on the royalties of Call Me Maybe and was residing in the same gated community as Toni Basil and Rick Astley, where Rebecca Black has a small condo too and Meghan Trainor is viewing property. If you're not getting the hint, I am implying that she is a one hit wonder. [...]

Hungry Ghosts, OK Go – A Review

Hungry Ghosts, OK Go – A Review

Hungry Ghosts is the fourth album from Chicago band, OK Go and I love it! That could just be the end of the review right there, but that seems a little lazy. I fell in love with OK Go right from the first song of their's that I heard, Get Over It. I must have been in Sixth Form or a uni fresher when [...]

It’s Mardi Gras / Pancake Day

It’s Mardi Gras / Pancake Day

Happy Mardi Gras, Pancake Day or Tuesday! Whatever you're celebrating, have a wonderful day. Here in my house, we're celebrating a combination of Pancake Day and Mardi Gras. In November 2013, my best friend and I travelled to New Orleans, Louisiana as part of my 30th birthday celebrations. Here we sang karaoke at Cat's Meow, drank Hurricanes, ate PoBoys, explored the swamps, had [...]

Hey Mango

Hey Mango

It's midnight and I'm inadvertently launching pieces of mango around my kitchen. I love a ripe mango as much as the next person and lord knows I've been waiting for this mango and it's been waiting for me. It's traveled many, many miles on top of it's already extensive journey from it's country of origin (maybe Kenya), as through poor forward planning it has [...]
