6 Stylish Camera Accessories

•••
I fully believe in the motto "all the gear but no idea" because if you don't have a clue what you're doing, you might as well try and fake it - for instance, I have tons of top of the range running gear but the reality is that I struggle to walk up the hill by my house to the bus stop without having to stop for air, but that doesn't stop me looking like I'm [...]

Blogs we like

•••
I'd like to introduce some of my favorite places on the Internet - blogs written by ladies who inspire you to jump on a plane with only your camera and a roll of film for company, so you can see the world as they do. Some of them (Alison and Sandra) were among the first blogs I read on this Internet space thingy and maybe partly responsible for me wanting to[...]

How to Bargain with Grace in Southeast Asia

•••
Everyone who has ever backpacked through Southeast Asia knows the best shopping is not at stores but at the prolific markets. They are indoor, outdoor, and even floating. And to make it even better the price of basically everything can be haggled over. Embroidered purses, hand painted parasols, kitchenware, knock-off designer jeans, tuk-tuk rides, surfing le[...]

Falling in love with Copenhagen

•••
Don't you just love Scandinavians? Good-looking, fashionable, smart and incredibly sweet. And as if that wasn't enough, they also have great food! So great in fact, that I kept eating pretty much non stop, duing my recent visit to the Danish capitol. My Danish friends, whom I had met during a semester abroad in San Diego always raved about their city, saying[...]

The smart guide to Cologne

•••
This past weekend, we followed a friendly invitation by smart urban stage to discover the city of Cologne. Naturally we took them up on their kind offer to give us a ride in smart's amazing new Electric Drive model. Better still, we were chauffeured by a super charming guide named Lia, a Cologne local and shopping pro who showed us where the best spots were.[...]

The traveling shoes

•••
Since from before I can remember I’ve been a shoe girl!  I don’t care about bags; I’m happy using a free cotton tote promoting some crazy health food store day in day out, but when it comes to shoes I’m guilty of serious crimes against spending. When packing for trips & holidays I can be super strict on the quality of clothes I pack but even if I’m go[...]

Hunting for carry-ons

•••
I have this thing. Whenever I go on a long trip, I usually take my backpack and give myself the option of purchasing a cute carry on, should i (expectedly) end up buying too much stuff on the road. You might think - wait, does this mean she has a closet full of carry-ons? The answer is: yes. I have 4, which is likely above national average. When packing toge[...]

Brussels on a Sunday

•••
I come from a '24 hours a day/ 7 day a week' culture where I can buy and do almost anything I want at any time of the day …. yes even on a Sunday! So when I recently moved to Brussels I was a bit surprised when I popped down to my local H&M to by socks and it was closed. Closed? What? This is Europe in 2011 and I can’t by socks on a Sunday? So I was [...]

Singapore, je t'adore

•••
Word of warning: don’t even think about doing all that in one day as the heat will send you delusional and recovery time by a pool will be a necessity. I would like to indulge detail of my personal highlight of Singapore: Bugis Street Market and Bugis Village. My boyfriend and I rocked up to Singapore at 10am to freak tropical thunderstorms af[...]

"To Market, To Market..."

•••
A visit to Australia would be blasphemous if one did not rifle and search through the plentiful markets which make regular appearances throughout the massive country. When traveling on a shoestring, little cheap random charms, trinkets, treasures and momentos that you pick up can speak volumes in memories when you return home. However, traveling is the obvio[...]
