Bangkok Taxis, the Scam to watch out for

While in Bangkok we had to use a few taxis and at the start of the holiday this wasn’t a big deal. It wasn’t till a few days in when we went to safari world when we had an issue. So we went to Safari world for the day and got the hotel to book us a taxi as you do, saves time and hassle. We took the highway to the safari park, toll charges were 100baht on the way there which was a shock as we didn’t know about them! The taxi altogether cost us 400baht, we tipped around 20baht. We paid, got out and the driver drove away, as you would expect? Well after spending a good few hours in the park went left, the same taxi driver was there which we thought was weird but great timing. We got the highway back which this time the toll…

My goal to lose 1 Stone by Christmas!

Weight, so Christmas is coming up. A time when I’m putting on the most amount of weight and literally eating whatever I can get my hands on! I’ve decided I need to lose some weight ready for it! Plus I’ll be able to get into my Christmas tops without any issue and I won’t have to buy anymore! I decided that I’d have a bit of fun with this instead of just keeping it to myself. Mainly because I thought it would give me a bit more motivation to lose the weight I want if I’m telling people about it! So I’m deciding that I want to put out an Instagram picture every Monday in order to update people on the weight loss and keep up with a routine myself. Of course I’d like to hit my goal, it’s almost two months away so I’d like to think I’d make…

Fashion Friday, What’s that about?

Lately I’ve seen a rise in plus size models, which is great although they all seem to be female? I’m not sure if society still has a view that men are supposed to be fit and toned with wash board abs, but that just isn’t the case. I’m not skinny, I don’t have abs and I am forever trying to lose weight. It can be a tough uphill struggle, especially with the media throwing out male underwear models and the perfect male image. So I came up with fashion Friday. I’m always looking for new clothes, shoes that fit or something different that supermarkets just don’t stock. So why not chat about it? I’ve given it some thought and feel like it’s something close to my heart and something that I want to talk about. It would be great if you could come along with me. I thought about creating…

The Wood Oven Bournemouth, where Pizza hits the soul!

What a tale I have to tell. If you live in Bournemouth or just visit a lot you may know about this place, then again I have lived here for almost 5 years and had no idea it existed. Possibly because it’s along the Boscombe sea front, or maybe because it used to be a public toilet; now transformed into the life of the pizza party! Whatever the reason, now that I have had a visit I would recommend anyone visit. So my partner got invited along to a blogging event here and decided to take me along, nice of him right? I had no idea what to expect which was all part of the fun. The wood oven is easy to find on the seafront and in the perfect position for everyone on holiday in the summer, they even deliver to beach huts! More on delivery later though. Once…

Platignum Pens, Grab your fill with this amazing competition!

So I love pens, fountain pens, normal pens, colorful pens. It doesn’t matter I just love them, even more so as a university student. You may have gathered that much though if you recently read my review of the amazing Platignum pens that every students needs! Of course you don’t have to be a student to enjoy pens, in my case though it’s mandatory; being at uni and all that! So myself and the good folks at platignum have decided to put on a little competition. Now you don’t have to be a student to enter. I mean anyone who loves pens as much as myself, feel free. So the competition prize, let’s talk about that a little. You would have seen that I got slightly addicted to the fountain pens, in fact everyone I have showed them to LOVE them! Well you’re going to be in with a chance…
