“I’ve been invited to speak at a conference in Portugal this March,” I casually say to Tom as we’re sitting on the couch, watching episodes of Fargo. “Is it okay if I go?”
Of course, I don’t need his permission to travel at all; I’m an independent woman, and travel is part of my job. Even if his answer was a sweet, polite, “I’d really rather you stay home,” I’d still …

If you are new to photography or cinematography, choosing the right type of lens that suits your specific use can be daunting. This is because lenses come in not just a range of focal lengths but also in numerous zoom lengths. Unless you are a professional photographer and know exactly what you need, it is important to test a lens before deciding to buy. The best way to do so …

How do you keep your travel photography original? It’s close to impossible to answer that question with a few words, but Anton Charushin doesn’t need words to do that. He just does headstands. A lot of them.
Anton, 27, from Russia got into breakdancing in high school where he realised that doing headstands is pretty good for your blood circulation and general wellbeing. Well, and then there were the creative benefits. Tagging …

I won’t hide that I was more than a little excited to be asked to test-drive the new ASUS Transformer Book T100. In many ways the clever design of laptop and tablet in one is ideal and I really wish my Macbook Air had that same feature. I dont own a tablet so I find myself regularly feeling jealous at everyone I see who does have one, especially those who …

Have you ever heard about LYCRA® fiber? I’d be surprised if you hadn’t, because it’s everywhere! LYCRA® is a fiber, that is particularly well-known for its elasticity. It is blended into all kinds of fabrics so clothes get a stretchy feeling, following the curves of your body. You have probably come across it in your skinny-fit jeans, yoga pants, swimwear, undies or tights.
When Katka posted about how to pack a week’s stylish …

I have never been on a cold weather holiday. Every January, as we enter the depths of bleak mid-winter here in the UK, my little brain awakens from its gentle festive fugue of eat, sleep, drink, repeat, and starts to plan how best to flee the country to get some much needed Vitamin D. Occasionally I have allowed myself to get seduced by the idea of romantic treks through pine …

As 2014 sinks out of sight like a bright, round pink sun and 2015 rises on the horizon promising a blank canvas of opportunities, don’t write a list of the things you’re going to do (or not) – lose weight, clean out your closet, or get fit. Instead think about all the things you can do to get more out of your travel experiences next year. Whether you have no …

No matter how often I travel, I just can’t seem to solve the mystery of packing. If I don’t over-pack, I run out of clean t-shirts after three days or realise I forgot to pack any socks at all. And if I don’t forget these essentials be sure that I simply packed for the wrong season. That just happened to me last week, when I decided to ignore the forecasts …

You know what the most liked Instagram picture of 2014 is? A picture of Kim Kardashian and Kayne West’s wedding. Yeah, that’s right. We decided we needed to chip in some blue-sky-cocktails-crystal-ocean pictures to make up for that apparent lack of pictures from the road on this world’s social media charts.
(Our most liked Instagram picture by the way was London’s skyline with the Shard.)

2014 was a year filled with passport …

Winter is an ideal time to get your reading that bit deeper, that bit more philosophical, that bit different. Winter is a great time to dig into genres that you normally won’t even consider, the sections in book stores that you would skip on a happy summer day. And on a completely different note, hiding in books is also a useful method to beat the post-Christmas blues that is patiently …
