#noregrets all you need is Mama and God. buy the plane ticket my girl. pray. smile, its worth the wrinkles. money isn’t the be-all-end-all. It’s a blessing which comes and goes. Be grateful for it but don’t let it ever define who you are as a person. instagram is not always real life. eat the cake. don’t take life too seriously. exfoliate before masking. Mask once a week. don’t ever treat someone more than or less than because of who they are or what they have. [Smiles are the same, laughter is the same, pain and tears are the same. Whoever you are, wherever you are, wherever you will be. *from one of my fave children’s books ‘Whoever you are’ by Mem Fox.] we plan and he plans. cry. It’s all about balance. look for the blessings. Always be on the hunt for god points. listen to other people. everyone knows something you don’t. ask people if they’re okay. How their day was. Genuinely care about people other than yourself. stay in touch with your friends. Its okay if they suck at it, you be the one who checks in every so often. everyone has a story. Be kind. spend… View Post
Hola! I wanted to share my most used apps whenever I’m abroad as they help make life a little easier when I’m on the go and you might find them useful too! Xe Currency Easiest currency app I’ve found so far! You can load up to 10 different currencies at a time and can still use it without data; obviously it won’t be spot on without the data, rather with the most updated rate from when you were last connected, but definitely a close enough idea of what you’re spending! Google Maps Such a lifesaver sometimes! Pro-tip, download an offline map of whatever area you’ll be in (custom map) so you can still use the map without data; even if you do get a local sim, you won’t have to waste precious data on google maps because it’ll still work! I was skeptical of this at first, but you have my word it works lol Uber Uber is definitely my preferred option when you’ve got flights at random hours of the night and in some places people actually recommend you catch an uber versus a local taxi. The fact that its trackable and you can see the drivers rating beforehand… View Post
Hola from Mexico! We’re en-route again, this time from a new part of the world which I haven’t ventured to yet and quite excited to experience. If you follow me on instagram you’ll know we just left Cancun a couple days ago and spent a day in Mexico City as we haven’t really got to our final destination..! My sister in-law is joining me this time around which is grand as we’ve traveled together before so know what to expect from each other (fact: you can’t travel with just anyone regardless of how close they are to you) We had decided beforehand that this wasn’t going to be a luxury, wine-and-dine trip, as we just wanted to experience the countries/cities ‘as-is’ without a hefty price tag and to kinda sorta prove to ourselves that you don’t need X amount of money to see the world. I know for a fact every time I’ve gone someplace, I get at least a handful of DMs asking how I fund my trips and what I do for work to afford travelling etc. and honestly friends, you can do it too! Not going to go into a long rant about how we all choose… View Post
Earlier this summer we were in Vienna with the Vienna Tourist Board to learn more abut the city and experience why Vienna is a must-visit destination! We had a grand time with our lovely host Rebecca and discovered beautiful parts of the culture and history. In comparison to a few other cities I’ve visited in Europe, I have to say Vienna definitely stood out in terms of its cleanliness, culture, overall chilled out and calm atmosphere (people, streets, everyone was so relaxed), and friendliness! In 2019, Vienna was chosen to be the world’s number 1 most livable city for 10 consecutive years and is the leading destination in the Economist Intelligence Unit Livable Cities report. Why?! Well Vienna has more green space than virtually any other capital city in Europe. It’s a place where visitors can enjoy both the city’s lifestyle and relax at the same time in parks and at waterfronts. Sharing some tips and highlights of our trip which I’d recommend you visit if you’re ever in the city! Vienna City Card We used our card a couple times and based on those times the metro itself is quite easy to navigate. Would recommend looking into the… View Post
Had the pleasure of spending some time with my Radisson Blu family again (Dubai) and thought I’d do a quick run-down of the properties I stayed at in the event you’re ever in town and in need of a place to stay! First up is Radisson Blu Deira Creek Next up is Radisson Blu Dubai Media City and lastly we’ve got Radisson Blu Dubai Waterfront There are a couple other residences in Dubai and hotels in other Emirates, but these are the ones I’ve stayed at before as well and would definitely vouch for! Everyone at each hotel is always extremely friendly and personable, address you by your first name and wanting to go above and beyond to ensure you have an enjoyable stay x promise you won’t be disappointed!
