Scotland Video Diary Part 1 - Kent to Glasgow!

So you may remember I exploded my camera the other week, meaning I didn't have a camera for my trip to Scotland. Alex has a nifty little Flip-type camera, so I thought instead of having nothing to show for my trip, I'd film some footage along the way! 

I am no camerawoman or editor, but I hope you enjoy Part 1 anyway. This is up until we travelled up from Glasgow to Cullen. Everything after Glasgow will be in Part 2, coming soon!!


It's times like this, when I'm unleashing my un-made up face, close-ups of my messed-up teeth (awaiting surgery in Autumn, yayyy!) and questionable panic breakfast choices that I thank the baby Jesus I have disabled anon comments!! 

It's no thriller, but there's some funny moments/banter along the way that I hope will be enjoyable, rather than seeming hideously self-indulgent! 

Hope you enjoy my video diary!! :) 


PS - Guess how many times I say "HELLOOO" to animals in this video..? A) 1, B) 3 or C) 7!! .... I really need some new banter when conversing with animals! And there's more where that came from in Part 2!

  3. wowzer, that's a lot of footage but in a good way, you're just as funny to watch as you are to read. my personal highlight was the genuine shock on your face when the fire alarm went off -x-

  9. I've always wanted to live down that lane, its just off Byres Road isn't it?!
    In the city centre did you manage to have a look in mr bens? its a really cool vintage shop with lots of sparkly costume jewellery and real military jackets :D Starry starry night is great too, its a little green shack just off Byres Road, you can't really miss it :D
    It's a pity about the charity shops, theres a place in glasgow I go to called Clarkston. The charity shops there are amazing. You should go there the next time your up here.

  14. It's so weird to see the place I live in on your video - the ice-cream/coffee shop on Byres Road is delicious!
    And you've reminded me to go upstairs at de Courcy's arcade, which I forget to do every day after lectures.

  20. Great video Gem- looks like you found a lot of the fun shops to visit just off of Byres road! The charity shops in that area can be a be a bit baron as the surrounding vintage shops seem to loot them!

    You've inspired me to do some video-ing on my next hol now!

  21. gem you're hysterical! 'I'D love to live in a lane...oh yeah we do live in a lane!' rofl. You're so funny!

  22. Loved the video - you are too adorable and I feel slightly weird for saying that considering you're older than me BUT it's true! It's so funny how you get everyone involved in the videos, especially your bf and the animals. My favourite part was when Roxy was in the binbag. Perhaps because it has parallels with my blogname... I DID NOT THINK OF THAT AT THE TIME. Woahhhhh freaky coincidence. Can't wait for the second part. Oh and I just thought I'd let you know that I got the Maybelline gel eyeliner: it's AMAZING. As is your coat in the last post :) xx

  23. LOVED this video. Roxy is the most gorgeous little cat ever!!!
    Had a little chuckle when Alex letting slip you had cold spaggetti hoops for breakfast (We've all been there!!;)
    Just a quick question from a fellow cat owner. Where did you get that red a cream blanket in Roxys carry case? My pusskin is getting mighty fed up of trips to the vets sitting on the news shopper. That blanket looks very comfy! :) xxx
