six months of see-ya to fast fashion.

Hello Pals,

It’s been over six months since i purchased new clothes.* I think like so many people, I had that period of time where my drawers and cupboards were just overflowing with items; half probably still having tags on them. Looking back, I tried to buy items I liked but had nothing to wear with, or I tried to buy items I wished I could wear but didn’t feel like me.

When I went Asheville in North Carolina to visit a a best pal, we spoke about things that matter to us, what we want to do with our lives. I wanted to be more economical and sustainable with my choices. After living with the same clothes for majority of my trip around Canada and Mexico for 9 months I realised that most new clothes were purchased second hand so why not try a whole year?

Five tips on travelling with glasses.

Hi Pals,

I recently had Lasik Eye Surgery which means II now have better than 20/20 vision. My Dad suggested doing one eye at a time because knowing “my luck” something will go wrong – thanks, Dad. I’ve researched it, and the statistics are all in my favour. I think I’ll be A-Okay. I mean, if it turns out that I’ll be able to shoot lasers from my eyes how sick would that be, and just in time for the Incredibles 2!

But it got me thinking, I’ve been travelling since I was 18 with glasses and how have I managed? Well, poorly, to say the least.

So here are five tips on how you can travel with glasses when you’re a bit of a doughnut-like me.


15 things you should have in your personal carry on.

Hi Pals,

We’ve all got a list of things we feel are necessary for our trip, whether it be long or short – we’d rather have it with us.  I’m always triple checking I’ve got everything I need because I want my carry on to be continuously A+.

I’m not talking about my overall carry on, and that always depends per airline (check here for an updated list of restrictions) my beauty/liquids or essentials (passports/electronics) – but the things that make our trip easier, more enjoyable and generally allows us to be more comfortable, relaxed and prepared.

So, here’s 15 things that I love to have in my personal carry on when I travel!
