So, today I had the "privilege" of traveling by train to the mall (laughs). It wasn't just any normal train, it was a type of bullet train? Well, basically it is our version of the bullet train down here, it's called the Gautrain. My mum and I decided to use this bullet train because we had never been on it, and everyone we spoke to, gave it such raving reviews. At first I was pretty excited I won't lie, the area where you had to pay looked really nice, and by nice I mean clean and shiny. I have a fetish for clean and shiny places. We didn't have to wait long for the train to arrive, so that was all good. When we boarded the train and started departing from the station, that's when things didn't go so well for me. I got a bit of motion sickness, I don't know if that is meant to happen, or if you're even suppose to get motion sickness. I never get motion sickness, so I was surprised when I got it on the train! I felt ill the entire trip to the mall, and was dreading my departure back. Besides the motion sickness, our carriage seemed to be shaking a lot, I realize that it is traveling at a high speed, but I mean that much shaking? You could see how much it was shaking in the linkage between one carriage to another. That scared me a bit. But besides those two problems everything else was satisfactory. It was safe, there was security on the train and at the station and it does its job by getting you to your destination in time. It's a bit pricey though, for three people it was about 289 zar ($38.72) so it's about 100 zar ($13.39) per person. I of course, did some shopping, but not that much because we had to travel back by train. I'll upload the fashion haul tomorrow, but for now, here are some pictures I took. I apologize for the quality, I took it with my Samsung Galaxy and my brothers Nokia N8. Oh! before I end my post, the train is really nice if you travel it with someone close to your heart. I say that because there is always a train arriving and departing every few minutes. So, you don't have to worry if you're going to miss the train after a long day out. I think the last train is at 20:00, I know I definitely want to travel on it with my boyfriend. I love the atmosphere of waiting for a train at a train station. It reminds me of a shoujo manga (laughs).

|I love these jeans! I actually bought them on Thursday, they're so comfy and they fit tightly on my legs, so they were a keeper. I had to buy them. My boyfriend is going to kill me, he's sorta put me on a shopping ban. But these pants look so good!|
