Brighton Vlog


You may have already seen my 24 Hours in Brighton blog post, but during my time away I also filmed a little vlog of our trip. I'm still getting used to this whole vlogging game and talking to the camera in public, so apologies if I'm a little awkward on camera.


Anyway, kick back, grab a cuppa and come on a 24 hour trip to Brighton with us...

Avocado & Coffee Smoothie with Alpro


If there's one thing I absolutely detest it is cow's milk. I'm not vegan, but there's something slimy and lumpy about animal milk that absolutely repulses me, so I've avoided drinking it as much as possible for a good few years now. I also find as soon as I've had cow's milk in my coffee, my stomach instantly feels bloated and uncomfortable - ugh! My hatred for milk has meant over the years I've had to find suitable dairy free replacements, particularly something that works with my constant stream of coffee throughout the day. Alpro have always been my favourite plant based brand for tasty, dairy free products so I was delighted when a box of goodies from them arrived for me to play with.

On my recent visit to kick ass coffee shop, Palm Vaults, I tried Kaye's avocado and coffee smoothie. Avocado and coffee are two tastes that I adore separately, but I wasn't quite sure just how they were going to work together. Much to my surprise I absolutely loved the combination; the avocado worked to make the consistency creamy, which was similar to that of a frappe but this one was a lot healthier! It inspired me to try my own coffee avocado smoothie at home with a few of the Alpro products that were gifted to me.

I'll be honest with you; the past few weeks I've abandoned my blog in favour of becoming a Pokemon trainer master. 

I never really 'grew out' of Pokemon, despite being 25 years old. I still re-watch the old episodes and movies, collect the trading cards and play Pokemon Stadium on the Nintendo 64. I've even still got my Gameboy Colour with Pokemon Yellow to hand and a Pikachu pyjama top from the 90's that still fits. The launch of Pokemon Go was always going to be a landmark in my lifetime and a distraction from everything else, including my blog. The past few weeks I've found myself walking for miles and miles on the hunt for new additions to my Pokedex and I've found myself neglecting my online documentation, but I'm okay with that.

I actually shot this outfit just after a Pokemon Go hunt in the city centre; it actually happens to be a really great re-spawn and lure spot (for those who do not play Pokemon Go, I apologise for all of the Poke-lingo). So, I suppose this was my trainer uniform for the day!

'Snippets of Amsterdam' After Movie

Amsterdam Travel Vlog After Movie Blogger Vlogger

A few months ago, James and myself jumped aboard a Megabus to endure a 13 hour journey to our favourite European city, Amsterdam. We only decided to go a month beforehand because we had booked tickets to see the RuPaul's Drag Race tour out there, as it worked out considerably cheaper than seeing them in London with travel costs included (£13 each way to Amsterdam!). Crazy, right? I've got to admit it was a struggle as we were both suffering with the flu the first few days of our trip and throughout the bus journey, which meant we were those annoyingly sick people coughing our lungs up the whole way.

As we were travelling all the way to the Netherlands for a drag show, we decided to make a few days of it and spent five days wandering through those picturesque, cobbled streets. I took some video footage in between the days of our sickness and wanted to share it with you guys in a quick after movie below. Unfortunately it's taken so long to upload because I'm having an absolute mare with my iMovie freezing during playback, which has meant I've not been able to edit this too smoothly. Now if someone wants to buy me Final Cut Pro, I wouldn't object, as my relationship with iMovie is a little rocky right now.
