Ayrshire College Media Students Launch Ayrshire Film Festival

As a former graduate of Ayrshire College, I am thrilled that they reached out to me to help promote the Ayrshire Film Festival, and I’m even more excited to share with you this fantastic student-led event. I want to quickly apologise, I should have posted more about this in the lead up to the event … Continue reading Ayrshire College Media Students Launch Ayrshire Film Festival

Sandylands Holiday Park (Parkdean Resorts)

Okay, first things first, before we start the actual review, I would like to say that usually this type of content would be accompanied by photos…lots and lots of photos. But to be completely honest with you, it didn’t occur to me until I was already back home that I could maybe talk about the … Continue reading Sandylands Holiday Park (Parkdean Resorts)

Bhad Scholarships

Now full disclosure before we move on, I really had intended to release this article much sooner, especially since Bhabie herself has said that it wasn’t receiving as much press coverage but unfortunately due to mental health issues, I had to take a break away from the site, and so albeit a little later than … Continue reading Bhad Scholarships


I have been making more of an effort lately to find and promote a greater variety of artists and creatives with our content. This has naturally led me to search for people, both established and indie who I feel deserve more attention on their work.  Today, I would like to boost and promote Charlotte Jafari, … Continue reading FEM POP!

Chaotic Bling

So as regular visitors to the site will know, one of our guiding principles here on Off the Record is that we endeavour where possible to boost, promote and support other creators through our content. For a couple of years now I’ve been following internet personality, Fay Kanevsky, more popularly known as Faythefae or FaytheGay, … Continue reading Chaotic Bling

Aella Blaze

So earlier today I got a Twitter DM, now usually when this happens it’s either auto-generated messages activated when you follow an account or they are spam, but this time it was someone who actually had something to offer. In this case they wanted to see if I was interested in their services as a … Continue reading Aella Blaze

Tradewinds Oriental Shop

So I discovered Tradewinds Oriental Shop about three months ago, they are a family run business based in Scunthorpe who have been operating since 1984, starting off they initially just sold a small range of Chinese foodstuffs, but as they grew and developed over the years they expanded to cover a variety of items including … Continue reading Tradewinds Oriental Shop

Static Games

I love Glasgow. I love games. And there's no greater synergy of those to aspects than Static Games. It's just a wee bit further outside of the main City Centre than I usually go when shopping but fortunately during a birthday outing, Joe from American Munchies was nice enough to take us and it instantly … Continue reading Static Games

Tokyo Toys

So I always enjoy a trip to Tokyo Toys, it's a fantastic geek emporium just up the road from Glasgow Central meaning it's conveniently located to drop in on when you just get off the train and still have all your money. The staff in there are always happy to help, or even just have … Continue reading Tokyo Toys


So we've been meaning to pop into Om! for a while now as it's in the perfect catchment for Tori and Lilian who are both practicing witches. In fact Lilian runs her own holistic business called Bewitching Health and Beauty, and you can read the post I wrote about that here. But I only managed … Continue reading Om!


So I'll admit I don't travel up to Ayr much, being located in Kilmarnock it's cheaper and just as quick to head to Glasgow if we have the money and fancy a shop. However because Tori B Bearly is currently studying graphic design at Ayrshire College and most if not all of their media based … Continue reading Boom!

I’ve been on a spell lately of writing about various cool services and businesses that I feel you should check out, and while Google and it’s various services including Premium probably don’t need … Continue reading YouTube Premium
