    Travel period pain free with Livia South Africa.

    You know when you are sick and tired of being sick and tired? That is how I have been feeling for the past 15 years! One thing I know I hate is having to travel with the burden of a bloated and painful tummy. I remember my trip to Mauritius like it was yesterday because besides feeling fat, I felt awful the whole time. If only Livia was a thing then, I would have conquered period pains like a champ. This month I had the opportunity to try out a new product by Livia South Africa which is a small device which works to reduce the amount and pressure that comes…

    5 best affordable things to do on Valentine’s Day

    I know I am not the only one who dreads Valentine’s Day and that is for many reasons which one of them is that it falls in the middle of the months and usually involves spending loads sh*t of money. Lucky for you, you don’t have to go around searching for things to do and asking you girlfriends or trying to find out what your girlfriend wants as a token of appreciation. Lucky for me (lol) I get to spend V’Day alone, not by choice though but because I am in a long distance relationship plus I am moving house so we know we can’t be spending a lot when…

    Paris, France

    A day in Paris, France: If someone told the twenty-years old me that I would someday find myself in Paris, I would have laughed them to shame. This year however, I did find myself in France and my oh my, it is absolutely everything they say it is and more. Well kind of! My partner and I are in a long-distance relationship and with that comes traveling to each other’s countries. This year instead of me going to see him, we planned to a cross country road trip to Paris. In my head, I always imaged Paris as this expensive and inaccessible city where you must spend thousands of Rands…

    Victoria Falls, Zambia

    Imagine going on an amazing holiday only to find out that the airline providing the a connecting flight sold you dreams and then find yourself stuck in the middle of home and nowhere. On Monday I left Europe with the hopes that I will be home in time for a one man brunch and my bed. Instead I found myself with others stuck in Zambia courtesy of Kenya Airways (the story will be told another time). Sometimes getting lost can lead to unexpected adventures.  I met a group of people who were coming back from different corners of the world and we decided to use the opportunity to visit Victoria…

    The cash passport.

    You have booked your flight. Got your visa. Bags packed. Now what? At this stage you are probably thinking of calling your bank to notify them of “irregularities” that will be taking place in your account because you will be swiping your life away and living your best life. Well, not exactly! In most cases, banks block your card if they see unusual activity on your account even if you notify them prior to your travel. Great banks will even inform you of what to do in order to avoid that but hey. A cash passport is a method of banking almost anywhere around the world without using your official…

    Hair and make-up tips while traveling

    In less than a 24 hours, I will be traveling from Cape Town to the Europe for the holidays and I am pretty much excited about it because instead of just visiting the Netherlands, my babe and I will be doing a couple of trips cross country vibes. Plane tickets booked, accommodation booked, dinners booked and we are well ready for it all. One thing that always graze me off though is looking beautiful without wasting time when getting ready and also being ready for anything that might happen during the course of a day touring places and meeting friends for dinner. My first concern is always my hair! I…

    How to save for your travel plans.

    Ever looked at someone’s Instagram or Facebook feed and wondered how the hell are they managing to travel without privilege? I have, so many times and this was during high school all the way to 1st year of my profession. How does one just get up and go to a different country and a week later they are leaving again. It is very possible. You see then, I had no idea about savings. In the black community, especially South Africa, you are never taught to save. When it happens is because you are lucky that you grew up around people who knew the importance of saving; a family member is…
