How To Prepare For The Ultimate Road Trip - post lockdown

If you love travelling, then it’s likely that you’re willing to try out different methods of travelling around our beautiful world. Going on a road trip is an excellent way of being able to see different parts of the world without having to rely on coaches, planes and boats to take you there. If you’re thinking about taking your first road trip, whether you’re alone or with a loved one, check out these fantastic tips on how to prepare for the ultimate road trip.


Make a packing checklist

The great thing about a road trip is that you have less packing restrictions than you would if you were flying on an aeroplane with a suitcase. However, if you plan on spending a lot of time in your car - and even sleeping in your car - then it’s important to make sure you’ve got everything you could ever need right there with you in your car. Create a packing checklist to tick off when you’re packing to ensure you’ve got everything.

Drive in comfort

During a road trip you’ll be spending the majority of your time in your car, and you need to be comfortable while doing so! After you’ve had your car serviced to ensure it will last the duration of your road trip, make some changes to your car so that you can drive in complete comfort such as a seat warmer, easy to reach refreshments, and clothes that aren’t going to be uncomfortable while driving. 

If you’re on the lookout for a new car for your road trip, visit your local Range Rover Dealer and browse the range. Range Rovers are made for long distance travelling and would be a great choice if you’re looking for a new car.

Create a playlist

No road trip is complete without music, and since you’ll be travelling between radio frequencies, it’s a good idea to find your own music to listen to. Spend some time creating the ultimate road trip playlists to enjoy. If you’re travelling with a loved one, have them suggest some songs and enjoy belting out classics as you travel around the world.

Plan a route - and know where the best stops are

The beauty of road trips is that you can literally go anywhere you want as long as there is a road to follow. However, having a rough plan on where you’re going is always a good idea to prevent getting yourself completely lost in the middle of nowhere. Research places to stop for refreshments and somewhere to stretch your legs to add more fun to your journey. You may even find interesting activities and sights to see along the way.

Take lots of pictures

Like any vacation, taking pictures is a must so that you can show your family and friends what you’ve seen, and also to appreciate them a few years down the line. Why not take a camcorder along with you to film your experiences and your entire road trip? Most of all, have a blast while doing so!



Catch me on the New BBC Three Programme: Is this coercive control?

 Hey guys! I have some exciting news to update you all on. I am part of a new TV programme from BBC Three called 'Is This Coercive Control?'

According to Woman's' Aid organisation, 

'Domestic abuse isn’t always physical. Coercive control is an act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten their victim'.

It’s such an important issue to discuss especially coming out of lockdown in some parts of the world. If you’re interested in finding out what this programme is all about, catch the episode on BBC IPlayer now!

*Disclaimer* This programme is only available in the UK.

Back To The Past Where Everything Was Easier

Can we reboot the year like a laptop that doesn't work? It certainly feels like it. Don't lie; you've probably been wondering the same thing. Wouldn't it be nice to go back in time and make sure that 2020 gets a better start? Unfortunately, there is no off and on button that you can press at will to kickstart 2020 into a fresh new beginning. Time escapes us once more. 
ᴛ̢̟̥͙̙̪̠ͥ̈́͒ͮ͒ᴀ̯̩̦͙ͯᴘ̛̗̟͔͚ͥ͗̓̔̎ͫɪ̶̲̪̮͒̄ͫ̀́̚ᴡ͕̪̲̪̣͒̈̎ͥͅᴀ̠͉̉̂͒̈̎ͬ͝ ̞͙̫ͬ̈́ͤ͐ͥᴍ̷͈̦̄̈͌̔ͮ͛̎ᴀ̦̙͍͓̠̞̪̉̑̂̔ᴢ̧̝̫͂̈́ɪ͚ͪ̆ʙ͉̂ͮ̒ͤ̓̊͝ᴜ̯̮̫̖ͧ̓̈́ͨ͡ᴋ̤͈̼̘͉̊̍̈́̄̃ᴏ͍̒͐͛

However, that doesn't mean you can't go back in time for a little while and spend a day in your favorite decade. Or perhaps, you're more of a mix and match vintage person? It doesn't matter. We can't move the clock backward, but we can directly bring the past into our day-to-day life. After all, who doesn't like a little vintage to spice up our lives? 

Where should you get your vintage items?
The best oldtimers you can get are those who are preloved. Anybody who still has a few jumpers and t-shirts from their teenage years is in an excellent position to create a playful outfit. An original t-shirt with Baby, Mel B, Mel C, Ginger, and Posh is guaranteed to look stylishly cool. If you didn't keep hold of your old clothes, you've still got a few options in your family. Parents, siblings, and other relatives may have accumulated items they don't like or wear anymore. You could come across some gems, such as a designer's outfit from the 1980s. Old-school clothes have a timeless charm that goes with the iconic design. 

Let accessories tell the story
It's not always practical to keep something from the old days. A 1980s outfit with huge shoulder pads or a quirky 1950s pinup dress may be cute for a day, but it can be tricky to incorporate those into your everyday style. Thankfully, you can fake vintage with smart fashion accessories that stamp date a neutral outfit. A cute little black dress with a pair of cat-eye frames can immediately evoke the glamorous 1960s, even if you've just bought your dress from Topshop. Another great tip is to play with hair accessories that have a vintage feel. Hairpins, for instance, can work well with a pinup outfit. Delicate headbands can bring 1970s freedom or the new romantic edge from the 1990s. You can throw a vintage outfit together using only accessories to highlight an area in time. For 1970s enthusiasts, nothing beats platform clogs and boots. 
Actually, I want to buy vintage clothes
Are you ready to buy a real vintage piece for your wardrobe? In any normal situation, second-hand shops would have been the ideal place to find original garments. However, at a time when COVID-19 remains a risk, it's best to avoid small and quirky shops. These are lovely to explore, but right now, they can struggle to meet the necessary health and safety requirements. Instead, head to the world's biggest vintage store, eBay. The Vintage Clothing section is filled with exciting items, ranging from the late 19th century until the early 2000s. You can even find some handmade outfits up to the late 1970s and beyond. Nothing says vintage like an original maxi prairie dress from Woodstock's days! 
Would vintage-inspired clothes work?
More and more brands are creating modern versions of some of the most iconic vintage outfits. So, if you're not ready to look after an original article, you can fake it with a modernised vintage look. It's advantageous for many reasons! Firstly, you'll find that stretchy fabric can be a lot more comfortable in modern clothes. It doesn't take much elastane to squeeze your hips into a tight pair of trousers. But it can make all the difference in the world! 
Besides, women's sizes have changed dramatically in the past few generations. Some of the original vintage clothes have such tiny waists that they would be impossible to wear nowadays! 

How about vintage hair?
Your hair is, by far, your best accessory. If you're going all-in for the golden days, you want a proper 1940s look that matches your hair type. Did you know, for instance, that 1940s hairstyles were significantly different between women? We all know Rita Hayworth's pompadour style, but did you realise that Africa-American and Caribbean women preferred a smooth pageboy style? Your hair can set the era perfectly. If you're going all-natural, head for the freeing hairstyles of the 1970s that embrace natural curls, frizziness, and less is more. 

Are you ready for a little time-travel? Step into your TARDIS/wardrobe and get ready to recreate your favourite era. Sure, it may not change 2020, but it's guaranteed to put a smile on your lips.

Hey guys!

So Its safe to say that loungewear has become a big thing right now so I put together a try on haul video from Femme Luxes loungewear range. Generally, loungewear would be old clothes that never see the light of day but currently, loungewear have become quite stylish which is hilarious. They have Joggers and T -Shirts that will make you feel better whilst staying at home...well at least for now anyway. 

I hope you guys enjoy this quick vid and don't forget to  LIKE, COMMENT & SUBSCRIBE and stay safe!



A day in a life: lockdown

Hey guys! I hope you are well and safe. So this is just a quick post on a day in my life that I recorded during lockdown . See what I get up to in a day. Enjoy! p.s The picture above is by no means a recent photo, just a reminder of what being outdoors feels like !



Staying comfy in Denim (Sponsored)

Hey guys!

I hope you all are staying safe! So I'm back again with another collaboration with Femme Luxe and since it's warming up, I think we can pull out a few dresses that is comfortable enough to wear in these temperatures once its safe to go outside again. Luckily for this denim dress, you won't need to add anything more to this outfit as it speaks for itself, but a statement earring or ring will complete this look. For a dressed down look, white trainers with a small bum bag will work perfectly or for a more dressed up look, a statement animal print boot will look great!

I put together a few accessories ideas that I think will work perfectly together and hopefully that will give you a few ideas! 



Life Update

Hey guys.

First things first, Its great to see some new viewers on my blog so incase I haven't said so already - welcome to my blog!

I thought I would update you guys on a few things since I haven't been active much on blogger. I had quite a lot of exciting projects  lined up to share with you guys but with so much negativity going on all over the news right now with the Coronavirus, that put a big hit on my travel plans this year. There   has been many reports of cancellations of flights going into many affected countries and although I initially was still up for travelling - there was nothing I could do when they announced certain cancellations.

I still am so so disappointed and quite frustrated that because of this, it has affected thousands of peoples day-to-day livelihood.

This had definitely had a negative effect on my work ethic. I've been trying my best to fill my time with other things that I love doing but I have to admit, its been very difficult. At this time, social media can be really bad place to keep being reminded of all the fatalities that's going on in the world and quite frankly nothing really is being done about it here in the UK. I really hope that things do get better so that I can get back to catching flights and blogging the whole journey. 

Now, with my Journalism, I think it has been going ok-ish. I have taken part in something that I will be sure to let you all know and it is quite a big deal so at least on that part, I'm very grateful. But I'm always someone that wants to push myself further in my career and its still feels like a long long way to go.  

I guess there's no easy way to get to where you want to go as there will always be obstacles but I have faith that things will get better...it has to. I hope to update you guys soon on more positive things but in the mean time, take care! x



Celebrating the New Year in style

Hope you all had a great start to the year! I feel like a lot of people had high hopes for this year and that's always nice to hear that a fresh start is what we all need.

I celebrated my birthday during the New Year period and had such a great night! I decided to do a photoshoot and head down to West End (which for those who don't know is Londons district of popular musical theatre shows...very similar to Broadway in the US) and I watch TINA  - The Tina  Turner the musical!

I would easily give the musical 5 stars! ⭐️ 🤩 I enjoyed every moment of it and loved the high energy of the performances! I feel like they showed a lovely balance of some of the struggles Tina Tuner faced whilst she was doing up in the music industry but also some highlights that showed her magic when she was on stage - I honestly felt like I was in the concert during the 70s and 80s! Thats one thing I said to myself is that I will definitely got to see another musical.

To see all the other activities I got up to, check out my new YouTube video below - I definitely will make more of an effort to upload regularly. Aldo don't forget to SUBSCRIBE! Until next time xx
