#BeautyTalk: Chasing Radiance

Idk if it was my routine or my pre-period clearing up of skin (does your skin get problematic about two weeks before your period then clear up in the days right before? I have no idea why my body behaves this way) but I know I’m looking #LIT lately. I’ve stopped wearing foundation to work,…

Budabest

Hungary is a country of many histories – it was Roman, Ottoman, passed around by many men. But every invasion brought new cultures that added to a unique Hungarian identity. For example, the Turks left behind a hammam culture – which built on the natural abundance of thermal springs Hungary had. Budapest is also known…

The truth about DBS Multi-Currency Account

Now that I’m prepping for a new trip, it’s time to talk money again. DBS launched this product earlier this year and since then I have seen several sponsored posts about this on various travel blogs. Even more recently, they’ve engaged some influencers to promote the DBS Multi-Currency Account (MCA) because of a roadshow this…

PSA: Garnier micellar water for CHEAP

Disclaimer: this is not a sponsored post. I only chanced upon this great deal when LookFantastic sent me last month’s beauty box to review. I’ll cut to the chase. We all know what product this is. No lie, I love this product. (My bottle is virtually empty!!) It gets the job done really well and…

Eating out in Rome is tricky

@ Rome, we have a problem. Rome is so beautiful and so INTERESTING. But like any other popular, tourist-ridden European city, Rome is full of immigrants. Which would be perfectly fine, except for the fact that they have shitty attitudes and make shitty Italian food ): More often than not, it’s expensive. Total #budjetsetno. This…

Didn’t expect to like Tanger this much

Tanger was honestly a lovely surprise. It was still noisy and bustling, but it was also calm and brought our Moroccan journey to a gentle close. Being a coastal city, it was not as painfully hot as Chaouen and Marrakech and also a lot less dusty. This was also where I felt I had really…

Here’s why frequent travellers should try beauty boxes

You guys, I can’t wait to be travelling again after this hellish semester. I’ve actually been hoarding travel-sized beauty products because I intend to be traveling carry-on only (to $ave money lmao). It was a pain to prep for summer because I had to transfer my products into little containers. Really no idea why manufacturers…

We got into a shady “taxi” to go to the Blue City

It wasn’t even a saloon car. It was a mini-van with a couch in the back. *facepalm* Y’all thought that I would be more savvy by now, being a big worrywart traveller. Man, I thought so too. The moment we got out of the train station at Tanger at 7am we were #ready to face…

Between Places: getting to Chaouen THE LOCAL WAY

We got to Tanger at 7am in the morning, drained from the overnight train ride and hungry for breakfast. But there was nowhere open, so we headed to the bus station early. We bought our tickets (40MAD/pax) from the Nejma Chamal because it was the earliest departure. I read that it was only second to…

We forgot to pack moisturiser to the desert

I won’t be naming the tour company we booked with because I was generally unhappy with the whole experience. ‘You get what you pay for’ really applies here. For reference, we paid 70eur/pax for our 2-day Sahara tour, which included one night’s stay in the Zagora desert. My biggest gripe was the hidden costs that…
