STAYING DOWN IN 2017 (5MonthsIN!)

Image
***I wrote this post around January 2017 when I was facing my biggest challenges***(Drafted - January - May 2017)
I've noticed one thing is that I expect too much perfection and for everything to be done in one go! This is when things go wrong because it ends up being a confusing situation and then you end up taking it out on other people..This has basically been the start of 2017 for me. I know most people seem to make their new year start on a high! But I don't think I was mentally prepared for 2017 and I allowed that overwhelming feeling to get to me by thinking "I'm staying down in 2017". I seriously couldn't believe I felt like this.. Its a new year! What is there that I can't do that I didn't do in 2016 - so much was achieved, I kept myself busy!

I spoke to friends that I trust, that I knew I could let them know how I was feeling because they had been there before. Even though I felt bad expressing all of  it just always speaking out. It wasn'…

Travel Essence - 12 Travel Tips, Treats & Tricks

Image
Thinking that you have everything  well organised for a trip and finding out you missed a few things out can be frustrating . This can be so many of us when planning for the perfect holiday, and I know my plan wasn't on point when I traveled to New York but this time I was determined to do so for my next long-haul holiday. I realised there were so many things to remember... So I had to share (in no particular order) 12 tips, treats and tricks with you that can make your next trip away stress-free!


1. When packing clothes, instead of folding, ROLL your clothes, you'll be surprised as to how much space you still have left compared to when folding clothes.


2. Pack for the amount of days you're staying  - You don't want your suitcase to be filled up and not have enough room for your presents and extra buys.


3. Check the weather forecast for the duration of your stay- Its good to know what type of weather you're packing for. Trust me, you don't want to be wearing a car…

Travel Essence - AMSTERDAM

Image
The joys of being a tourist...


A short break seems like its always needed and I got the chance to take a uni trip to Amsterdam in November 2015 with a few of my colleagues and of course my lectures came.

I've heard so many things about weekend breaks to 'Dam and finally I got the chance to go. As soon as most people hear Amsterdam the first thing is the Red Light District or weed cafes, but obviously there's more to the Dutch lifestyle - the classic bike rides and canals, traditional beers and the people you meet! I will do my very best to share this trip with you recommendations and hopefully you'll be paying a visit to AMSTERDAM too!


Accommodation
We stayed at the Meininger Hostel, City West. A great location which is very close to the Sloterdijk railway station (five minutes walk). This hostel is definitely ideal for students or if you're looking for an affordable and accessible place to stay. The staff are helpful especially as a lot of students stay here, and a lo…

Travel Essence - WORLD TRAVEL MARKET 2016

Image
The essence of travel is like being in another world. What feels like lifetime is only like 2 weeks. You meet amazing people and keep in touch, you finally meet family members that you've never met and you cherish every moment! Don't you just love that feeling?? It doesn't even have to be in another part of the world; it could be that hour trip away for a peaceful weekend that makes you appreciate nature and your well-being! Travel comes in so many ways - leisure, passion, career, inspirations and so much more. I love it! Here is a chance to be part of that through the World Travel Market!



I'm so excited to post a lot more on life as tourism student as I studied it from college up until university. There were a few languages too and I would definitely want you to ask questions or leave your comments, tips and recommendations etc. on unique places you've traveled to. So if you  just want to travel for the rest of their life and you see yourself travelling as a career…

#ThrowbackThursday

Its so inspiring to see that there are many events and campaigns taking place around the world, at a time where there have been unjust killings of black people. These events are here to empower us #BlackLivesMatter and The Miss Black and Beautiful exhibition was one of the many successful  events I had attended this summer... 



I love how I randomly came across this exhibition on Eventbrite. Taking place at the Autograph, ABP, Rivington Place, Shoreditch was a good idea to plan this exhibition as the area is surrounded by art and culture and has a distinct vibe about it. At a time where in todays society there are a mixture…

PANCAKES AND BOOZE

#FlashbackFriday www.pancakesandbooze.com
I bet you guys are wondering what kind of combo is pancakes and booze (beer)...? Yes, it is definitely a combo but I would say its more normal at an art show. 
It seems like my mindset has been open and a bigger interest has grown on me for art more than I expected. I see myself in art galleries and exhibitions. I've also seen so much passion and dedication that my cousin, Rimi has when it comes to her artwork which continues to  inspire many. She had the opportunity of featuring her art work as part of the Pancakes and Booze Art Show too!

Rimi also launched her official website and I would love for you guys to check it out! She's also about to travel to Rwanda and has put together a small collection of Rwandan art pieces on sale.
