• Places Worth Visiting

    place worth visiting, bali

    Hello my fellow travel giraffes, how are you? Have you ever seen a particular place pop up on social media that makes you want to pack your bags and go? Yup! We've all seen them on Instagram. Sometimes you even pack your bags and go, only to realise that they weren't as nice as portrayed. The guys at Handluggage Only did a list of places that are overrated in Europe and I thought I'd share my list of 5 places worth visiting.

  • Summer Plans Without A Vacation

    Summer Plans

    So we're in the middle of summer and you're feeling good! Feeling good until you realise that everyone and their dog is having a summer holiday abroad. I know, I feel your pain because since my last trip I've got nothing planned. So today I'm sharing a few ideas on how to enjoy your summer. Here are my summer plans without a vacation list.

  • Summer 2017 Playlist

    So you're on your summer holiday and having the best time! The sun is shining, you're at the beach looking cute in your kimono and swimsuit when all that's missing is some music. We all need music for our summer backdrop so when winter hits and we hear that song on the radio, it can take us back to sunnier days. That's exactly what today's post is all about; the summer 2017 playlist!

  • Coping with Post-Holiday Blues

    Teleférico de Barcelona- Miramar gardens, Barcelona

    Welcome my lovely wanderlust giraffes to another travel post. Last post I shared some tips on how to haggle and this week I'm sharing my tips on coping with post-holiday blues. Post-holiday blues are the downside to travelling because it means your amazing holiday is over and you're back to the routine of life. Unless of course you had a crap holiday and couldn't wait for it to be over! Anyway here are a few tips I use to help me get over the slump.

  • Staying Motivated With Your Fitness Routine

    staying motivated with your workout routine

    Happy July you fitness giraffes! We're already in the swing of summer, although the weather in the UK leaves a lot to be desired. Anyway, today's post is not about my wanderlust but about staying motivated with your fitness routine. You know how we feel so motivated and gung-ho about joining the gym and by week 2 it's fallen by the side? Then you wonder why you're wasting your money. I'm here to share some tips to get your fitness motivation mojo going again!

  • Tips on Haggling whilst Holidaying

    tips on haggling - bangkok

    Haggling isn't something that is the norm in the western world. You go into a store or shop and the price you see is usually the price you pay, unless there's a sale on. If you visit a market stall, you may be able to wiggle your way to a lower price but not often. However, if you visit South East Asia, Dubai or Egypt, then haggling is pretty much expected. With that in mind, I'm sharing my tips on haggling that I picked up from one of the besties :)

  • Espadrille Wedges

    espadrille wedges

    Hello my fashion giraffes! The UK seems to be finally having a real summer or at least the beginnings of one and that means we need to talk about shoes. If you're new here, then you probably don't know that I love shoes and it's one of my favourite topics. As you can see from the title, today's post is all about espadrille wedges. I think this is the perfect shoe for summer because it goes with practically everything. They're comfy and for anyone who finds it difficult to wear heels, these are a greate alternative.

  • 3 Must See Places in Bali

    3 must see places in Bali, Temple at Monkey forest

    It's another edition of Travel Thursday and today I'm talking about 3 must see places in Bali. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen that I went to Bali and had an amazing time! As you can imagine, I took a lot of photos because the place is absolutely beautiful and I didn't want to bombard you with all the pictures...unless you'd like me to do a photodiary? Let me know in the comments below. So instead I thought I'd share a few of the places I went to in case you're planning a trip to Bali soon!

  • Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

    Hello, my travel giraffes! Hope you're loving this short work week? If you follow me on Instagram (if you don't you should) then you would know that I was recently in Bangkok! Visiting Thailand has been on my bucket list for ages and when I booked this trip last year, it was like a dream come thru. Unfortunately, we didn't get to visit the other islands and remained in the city so we made the best of it. One of the things we did get to do was the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.

  • What Italians Teach About Love

    What Italians Teach About love

    Happy Tuesday and end of May giraffes! Spring is quickly coming to an end and summer will be here before we know it! Today's post is looking at what Italians teach about love. I wanted to do a post about love because it seems as though we need a lot of it. Recent events have hit close to home for quite a few and attacks on innocent people across the world is coming in thick and fast. So this is my small attempt to rebalance some of the hate because quite frankly I don't know what else I can do.

  • 5 Things I Will Accomplish

    5 things I will accomplish on www.majeang.com

    I know we always start the beginning of the year with a list of things we'd like to accomplish. However, I am wondering if this list shouldn't begin during spring. Let's face it, winter is miserable and sometimes really, really long! There isn't a lot of inspiration happening unless your resolution is to hibernate! So with that in mind, here are 5 things I will accomplish by the end of 2017....I hope!

  • Denim and Red OOTD

    denim and red- Amrita Singh choker

    So my fashion giraffes, it has been awhile since I did an OOTD. I was holding back due to not having someone to take my photos and a camera that frustrates me to no end when it's on a timer. To be honest, I think these were just excuses I gave myself because I felt insecure about my appearance. I admit I fell into that comparison trap and to get myself out of it, I did an OOTD by myself in Salerno with the help of my phone. So without further ado, here's my outfit post on pairing denim and red.

  • Visiting Salerno Cathedral

    For the May Day bank holiday, I took off for a few days to Salerno, Italy. My lovely friends were flying over from Sri Lanka and I thought, hey why not! As I was on my own for a few days, I had time on my hands so a stroll around San Francesco was in order. This is where I stumbled across Salerno Cathedral.

  • Post Flight Body Care

    post flight body care, on www.majeang.com

    You know when you've had that amazing holiday, where you ate and drank everything presented to you? Yes, that holiday that you'll be talking about for weeks and wishing you were still there. It could actually take a toll on your body, especially those long haul flights. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the whole process of checking in on-line, arriving at the airport, duty-free shopping, boarding the plane and taking off. I have such wanderlust and I'm always looking for the next trip. However, as much as I enjoy it, I know that flying can take a toll on my body and post flight

  • Solo Travel, What I Learnt

    Teleférico de Barcelona

    Short work weeks are the best! It's Thursday already, which means two things; the weekend is almost here and I have another travel post for you :). Today's post is what I learnt about solo travel. I'm not sure if you noticed but I went to Barcelona on my own. It was my first solo trip and I thought I would share with you what I learnt, in case you were thinking of doing one yourself.

  • Travelling with Caudalie

    Oh hello, beauties! How are you coping with your first day back after such a long break? It's a struggle! Hopefully, today's post will perk you up a little bit, especially if you're a skincare junkie like me. If you read my last post (here) you would have seen that I went to Barcelona for my birthday. I decided to take the travel sized Caudalie products I bought last Christmas (here). So let's get into my thoughts of travelling with Caudalie.

  • Barcelona Photodiary

    Hello beauties! How have you been? As you can tell from the title, today's post is my Barcelona photodiary. I decided to share a few photos of the few days I spent in Barcelona with you. It was a special trip because it was my very first solo trip and it was my birthday! I hope you enjoy!
