How to decorate a traveller's home

•••
When you land somewhere new in the world and think, ‘You know what, I might stay here for a bit. I quite like it!”, you know you’re going to be experiencing something special. There’s nothing quite like fully immersing yourself in a new city or country for a substantial amount of time and absorbing every part of the culture. There are aspects to the c[...]

Liberty: The Shopping Emporium of London

•••
When it comes to large, established department stores, Harrods seems to always be the tourist fixation when visiting London… but think of Liberty when you want to get less mainstream and more eclectic. Sure, both of these places are incredulously expensive but sometimes, when a girl has to window shop, she might as well do it at the most exclusive and worldl[...]

How to spice up your Staycation

•••
So we learned all about why to spend our winter in South Africa's summer, how exciting and versatile a trip to New Zealand can be and how beautiful cities like Lisbon or Barcelona are even in winter. There's only these two problems that keep us from fleeing the approaching cold front and escape to a winter down south: a) there are hardly enough leave days le[...]

12 things you must do before summer's over

•••
With autumn looming in the distance and limited time left of the summer’s sun, the great outdoors needs to be fully seized and enjoyed before it is too late! Road trips, camping trips, hikes, bike rides; all these things must be done before the miserable winter sets in and you regret your missed sunny opportunities.

•••
Here comes the sun, little darlings, and festival season has already begun. In the UK floods of people (and hopefully not rain) have descended upon Glastonbury and all around the world the beautiful people are beginning to tap their toes to the sound of the world being alive to the sound of music. Festivals are to fashion like dominant eyebrows are to Lan[...]

Meshu: turn your travels into beautiful jewellery

•••
Have you ever heard of Meshu? If you love travel, jewellery and unique momentos then it’s about time you did. Returning from travels is bound to leave you feeling a bit blue. The memories will last forever, but what happens if you want to have a visible (and pretty) reminder? Fancy wearing your travels on your sleeve? Or perhaps you would prefer to have it a[...]

DIY Sunday: Practicalize your bikini

•••
For my upcoming trip to the Maldives, I was in desperate need for one or two new bikinis since I haven't had a beach holiday in nearly 2 years and all I had were bathing suits. But the "Sweetie, with your bra size you really have to shop really early in the season and not at the very end of it, I'm afraid we don't have anything for you" from the friendly sho[...]

DIY Sunday: Travel Shopper Bag

•••
One of the few things I didn't pack on my RTW adventure that I really, really needed was a travel-friendly foldaway shopper bag. Not because I was regularly going wild in the aisles of Southeast Asia's supermarkets but because every now and again I needed an extra bag; for the pair of shoes that I'd forgotten to pack and just found under the bed, to carr[...]

DIY Sunday: Summer Wreath

•••
Here comes summer... oh and there it went again. Why can't the European summer just deliver the goods for more than a few days? I am starting to think I will never have the answer to this question, but what if it is going to rain, the least I can do is take advantage of this and make some sunny DIYs. Today I'm creating a little bit of summer inside with t[...]

DIY Sunday: Foreign coin photo frame

•••
During my recent travels through Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand I loved meeting (and spending!) each country's currency. The notes, coins and amounts were all new and exciting to me. As I travelled on to the next country I somehow ended up collecting and keeping hold of a collection of change which threatened to push me over the edge of many airli[...]
