You’re probably wondering what an historic interior has to do with my decision to start a YouTube channel, Rachel With An E (NEED LINK), last year. Well it has nearly everything to do with some of the reasons why I started YouTube in 2016. I started YouTube to share my love of everything historical (as well as vintage lifestyle, lifestyle videos, fitness and travel videos).
Inspired by this post over on one of my favorite blogs, Cup of Jo, I decided to write up some of my ‘autumn aspirations’ for self-improvement, fitness and travel. I’m always one for improving one-self through courses and classes and exploring new places – Autumn is a perfect time to start this as the evenings are darker and we find ourselves spending more time indoors.
After a wonderful night’s sleep in twin beds! (This is the only room the hotel had left for a reasonable price!) we awoke and a wonderful breakfast at The Corrie Hotel. The only problem being that the waiter assumed I eat pork (which I don’t) and gave me a full Scottish breakfast! This was soon rectified with a lovely vegetarian breakfast and we were soon on our way to explore the rest of Arran!
As you may have grasped I’ve recently moved to Scotlan, to the west coast to be precise, for a job. I like to explore the area I live in when I move somewhere, especially pretty sea side villages. On this note I recently went to Dunure, a sea side village twenty minutes south of Ayr, for a day trip with a friend. Much fun, eating of fish and chips and ice cream ensued!
Good morning! I hope you have voted, are on your way to vote or will vote later on! It’s sooo imporant (especially as women) to vote both responsibly and to vote informed about your choice of political party and candidate. I’m wearing a home-made belt or sash in the Suffragette colours of purple, white and green to show my thanks to the women who campaigned before for the right to vote.
