So I decided to get an electric scooter and here is what I think..

So I have finally decided to jump on the electric scooter bandwagon along with what seems to be every second other person in Dublin. It’s like over night they have popped up everywhere and especially around where I live in the Ballsbridge area. So what do I think of them…are they any good? Well the short answer is yes! I am in love with it! It is so much better than having to drive just 5 or 10 minutes to go see my friends or even just popping down to the shop to pick up a few bits.My only issue is all the media saying that they are illegal so I am a bit paranoid about getting pulled over.


The electric scooter I decided to go for was the Xiaomi M365 electric scooter as that seems to be the most popular online judging by the reviews. It is pretty fast but it did take me a while to get the hang of it so I don’t recommend going to fast on it at the start. After an hour or so of playing around with it I was a pro at it. I have mainly just used it to go down the road to my friends house in the evening so haven’t had a proper go of it yet and I haven’t gone full speed on it just yet.

Do I think they are worth it? Definitely if you are just going on a short commute It is so much easier than having to get in the car and deal with traffic especially in built up areas like I am living in. I think they are pretty dangerous especially if you are not use to them so definitely wear a helmet and make sure you get some lights too. Mine has lights but they are not that great. Oh yeah and for anyone who is interested I got my electric scooter at escooterstore so check them out if you have any interest as they are based in Dublin.

It’s Time I Got a New iPhone

My iPhone 6 is doing my head in! It has gotten so slow over the last few weeks no matter what I do to it so seeing as I spend so much time on my phone I have decided I will get myself a new iPhone. There has been so many new releases of the iPhone in the last few years that I don’t even know what is what in terms of spec and price. From what I can see there is the iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and iPhone X? I am not sure what is different about them and to be honest I find the whole shopping for a phone thing a real headache.

My iPhone 6 was working fine but I guess it has just gotten old or maybe I have too much stuff on it. I don’t need a top of the range phone so I have my eye on a iPhone 7. After some looking around online I see that you can get a refurbished version of the phone for a good price so this is what I am thinking. I came across the website which has them and with a 1 year warranty so I guess it is worth a shot!

It says it is also network unlocked which is good because I plan to go to Bali for a month at some stage so that will mean I won’t need to get a new phone over there and sim card. If anyone has had any experiences with refurbished iPhone’s good or bad please leave a comment as I would like to know before buying what they are like? Thanks!

Thinking of getting a hoverboard to commute into town

electric scooter hoverboard

Has anyone else noticed people going in and out of work on these electric scooters in Dublin recently? I have only noticed it the last few weeks and I couldn’t believe the speed that these things go! To be honest the only people I have really seen use them are mostly foreigners so maybe us locals are slow on the up take but I did only really notice them recently. Anyone I have been use them have been using them in the cycle lanes. This makes sense but I am not sure of the legality of this…not that I really care just pointing this out.

After doing a bit of Googling I see that they are treated like a motorbike so you do actually need a license for them….I think. I can’t see this being enforced though I guess it is one of those things where the law is years behind technology. I hate sitting in traffic every morning and evening especially as the days are getting darker. My work place is only a 10 minute cycle so with one of these scooters I could be into work in 10 minutes without hitting any traffic and the stress that comes with.

I do have one of those hoverboards at home somewhere that I got from the two years back and it is great fun but I have never actually gone anywhere on it. But these electric scooters look a bit more serious and convenient. Imagine if a small percentage of the population of Dublin decided to use these as a mode of transport. It would take more people off of the Luas, Dart and buses around town and take more people off of the roads. I think they should be fully encouraged. Maybe there is a stigma over them as they are so new..just like there used to be over online dating and now look..everyone is doing it!

My Youtube Channel Is Nearly Ready

Hey guys! So what a crazy few days! Not only have I been getting ready things ready for my new business I also took a few days off to visit some friends in Dublin and what a night it was. We stayed up until all hours to watch the Mcgregor Khabib UFC 229 fight and it was a great night even though Mcgregor was well beaten in the fight. The fight lasted 4 rounds out of 5 as championship fights are always 5 rounds with standard fights lasting 3 rounds.

It felt like the whole world was watching that fight and the lead up was crazy. There was very little media stuff done other than the main press conference up until a few days before when there was content from various Youtube channels popping up all over the place. Coach Owen Roddy has his own vlogs as well as UFC embedded which follows the fighters around for the week. I took a fight notes on how to shoot a good vlog and the editing all those channels is very good especially considering they need to get the content out asap.

By the time fight night came I was totally buzzing for the fight. Mcgregor talked a lot of thrash before this fight…more so than usual so he really needed to back it up but unfortunately Khabib is a very good grappler and there was not a whole he could do once he was taken down. After the fight it was crazy with brawls happening in the crowd between Irish and Russian fans which is a pity as it brings the sport down. We had a great night though. My friend purchased the PPV off the official UFC app and we watched it on his android box from and we all chipped in €5 each so it was a great night. All these embedded series have really inspired me to start my own Youtube channel. I am just waiting on some graphics for the channel page and then I can begin!

Thank Goodness for Teeth Whitening Strips

teeth whitening strips ireland

I have finally gotten around to test out teeth whitening strips which I have been meaning to try for quite a while. I take good care of my teeth and brush twice a day most days but I also drink a lot of tea and coffee which have stained my teeth. My friend who works in dentistry recommended me teeth whitening strips to me as a low cost alternative to getting my teeth professionally whitened. So I had a look online and found a site called Glory Smile who sell them at a really good price at €29.00 for two weeks worth of strips. I went for their own brand as the reviews are good and they are almost half the price of the Crest whitening strips which are also supposed to be good but a little on the expensive side.

Teeth whitening strips work by applying them for about 30 minutes before bed each night. They stick on to your teeth and are not that uncomfortable to have on and you can even eat and drink on them. I started to see results after about 4 or 5 days and I done the two weeks worth of strips in about 18 days as I missed a few days when I was out at the weekends as I would forget to pub them in before bed. All in all they have definitely made a difference to my teeth and I will continue to use them for the time being. It is important to note that these are not a substitute for brushing your teeth and mouth hygiene is obviously very important and not only that but can also cost you a fortune if you need to have a root canal or other expensive operations on your teeth. So be sure to keep brushing your teeth but for those of you who want to whiten your teeth more these are definitely an affordable and good option to take.
