Safari vlog

I am extremely excited to share this video with you as I was quite nervous editing it and making it work. I have little experience in putting vlogs together but when I start, I always choose music first. I get the impression that if the music works, everything else will follow and that is how I decided to approach this vlog…

I have already published a post detailing our safari trip and shared some beautiful pictures taken by my husband. If you are interested in checking that out, the link is available here.

Let me know what do you think ? Even if I could have done something better or different, I am more that happy to listen to your opinion.

As usual, do not forget to subscribe to my channel for more travel and fashion videos !!

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by,

Aggie xx

 

 

 

Hand luggage essentials

When I travel, I like to be comfortable. I also like to feel good in myself and I always try to look fairly put together. I does not really matter if it is a weekend away or two weeks of sightseeing, I will aways have few travel essentials by my side.

It maybe controversial but I like to limit my carry-ons, especially when I am flying. I do not like to have too many thing with me, mainly because of convenience and the weight. However, there are few things I would not travel without and I thought it will be useful to share them with you…

The ‘must-have‘ list includes the following:

  • Toiletries

They will be quite minimal in my case and will always include: contact lens solution and case, toothbrush and toothpaste, makeup wipes, deodorant, universal face moisturiser (that can double up as a hand-cream) and a small, travel-friendly bottle of fragrance.

  • Travel documents and passport

They are always by my side in less or more organised way… I never put any of my travel documents in plastic pockets, instead I like to fold them and store them in my passport holder for convenience and space-saving…

  • Electricals

Extra phone charger, laptop, camera and all the lenses are too pricy and very needed when I am on a go so they will always travel with me in a hand-luggage. If I take tripod, laptop charger and all the adaptors I may need, I will keep them in a main luggage as they use is limited during traveling.

  • Reading materials

Magazines are good but only for few minutes in my case. There is nothing like a good book, gripping enough so you will not be able to put it down. I remember one eight-hour flight during which I read entire Gone Girl… best flight ever !

  • Extras (socks, sunglasses and pricy items)

As I am cold most of the time, I like to have my nice, comfy pair of socks with me. I know that most airlines will provide some free-of-charge but my own are my favourites. Sunglasses are also an essential, even if I am not traveling anywhere hot. They are perfect if you are without make up and always add that special something to the look.

  • Snacks

I am a fairly healthy eater and I generally like to know what goes into food I am going to eat. Nuts and dry fruits (dates and figs are my favourites) will be always in my bag even if I am not traveling. A bottle of water is also very needed but I am not going to lie… I will have a G&T especially on long-haul flights !

What about you ?

What are your travel carry-on essentials ?

June

June has gone so fast that I have not had a chance to stop and reflect… It is something that I like to do whenever I closed a chapter in my life. It maybe after the end of the month, year or after a significant change in my circumstances. I try to look at the positives and address everything that I should have done that I have not… so I do not feel like I am drowning…

Last month have been better for me that I have expected. There were so many things that I was worried about that in the end turned up to be not so scary after all !!

I have also made some new purchases for summer time and I will be more than thrilled to share them with you in the very near future !! As I am currently enjoying little get away, my biggest priority were summer accessories and clothing. These are just few examples of what came to my possession lately…

In regards to my blog I am very happy that my community is growing and new bloggers are checking out my website. I cannot express enough gratitude for all the likes and lovely comments. I really hope that this trend will continue as I have all the intentions to carry on…

The blog post with the most amount of views last month was Few words about self-confidence and the one that attracted most likes was Responsible fashion !!

As I have mentioned before I am currently travelling and I will be keeping you posted on what I have been up to… For now I can show you my home for the next few days and I cannot imagine anything else more picture perfect xx

Traveling disasters and pet peeves plus my first ever collaboration !!

I have not planed this post today but as it is in life the best things happen just like that !

Few weeks ago I got approached by Ken from travel website called TravelOopsies.com to joint forces and write one or two things down. The website specialises in collaborations with different bloggers with big emphasis on travel experiences and if they were bad on what could you have learnt from them.

When I got asked to talk about mine I could not resist !

It is so interesting to read about other people travels and their likes and dislikes. Especially when they are either traveling professionally or more often than myself.

With holiday season so fast approaching I hope you will check them out as it is very eye-opening…

It took me some time to reflect on my mistakes and travel choices. I have listed one big one but since writing that little note I could probably name few more… What about you ?

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will see you all very soon !!

Love,

Aggie xx
