Travel-Sized Beauty Favourites for Your Next Holiday
Times are tough right now. As well as the ongoing societal problem of systematic and systemic racism against black people across the world, the Coronavirus pandemic continues. With many of us still abiding by lockdown restrictions, travelling has been severely disrupted.  You may have had a holiday planned that’s been cancelled or postponed. You might have planned to take a quick trip away to escape the hustle and bustle of life. You probably planned a staycation to get away from your hometown for a short while. Regardless of your travel plans, it’s annoying to have to put things on hold.

Face SPF Products You Need to Try Right Now
It’s hot. There I said it. It really crept up on us. We were given rain and storms before a heatwave no one saw coming. I’m the first to burn too. I’ll step outside and within 10 minutes, I’m a rosy hue. This list is as much for me as it is you and I’m excited about it, let me tell you.

Summer Lovin’
You've binge-watched Normal People, developed a mild case of repetitive strain injury from swiping left on boys who are 'just looking for a quarantine buddy ;)' and Love Island 2020 (much like my own love life) is cancelled.   If you're a hopeless romantic like myself and need your fix of summer lovin' in the absence of skin-tight white jeans peacocking around a firepit (I mock, but I've never missed an episode), then pick up a love story.

The Benefits of Meditation On Your Mental Health
Life is still a little on the crazy side right now… I mean, if you’d have asked me back in January what I thought I’d achieve this year, you can bet your bottom dollar I wouldn’t have said building a loungewear collection and not leaving my house for months, other than to go food shopping and walk the dog. No socialising… no holidays… not going into work…  Life has literally been flipped upside down for a lot of people and now more than ever, it’s important to look after our mental health and wellbeing. Spending most of your time alone, or with the same few people in your household can also be hard, especially if you’re a natural social butterfly.

3 Dream Trips and How to Make Them Happen

Travel enthusiast or not, there is nothing like taking a dip in the pool of your overwater bungalow in Bora Bora or waking up to the sunrise in a fluffy bed with the Taj Mahal peeping at you through the window.

Some travel experiences are really a dream come true to many, and they might feel like an immense task to plan. To some people, a dream trip would be meeting Bill Gates, and to others, it might be going on safaris in Africa. What’s more, some people make travelling a family get together by gathering around their young children and relatives turning it into an educational experience.

Whether your dream trip is a family walk through history or a relaxing escape, here are 3 dream trips and how you can make them happen.

WAKING UP TO THE TAJ MAHAL

If your dream trip is exploring a wonder of the world, it is time you pack your bags and fly to New Delhi, India.

Once in New Delhi, hire a cab to explore what the city has to offer. Remember to stop by and experience the culture at the Red Fort, Qutub Minar, and Old Delhi. And, before catching an Express train to Agra, pay your respects to Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat.

Express trains from Delhi will take you to Agra in less than two hours. Agra is where you will find the architectural brilliance you’ve been wanting to witness – the Taj Mahal. Hire a guide and spend several hours at Taj Mahal to learn about the architectural secrets you might otherwise miss.

After sightseeing in Agra, you will be likely ready for something new, and this is when you should head to Jaipur – India’s most famous pink city.

RELAXING IN AN OVERWATER BUNGALOW

Do you wish to escape from all chaos and find peace in a quiet corner of the world?

The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort was just prepared for you and it offers around 50 acres of water villas and suites in the South Pacific. While at Bora Bora, you will be spending your days enjoying the sight of crystal blue waters, relaxing on the white sand beaches, and enjoying the spectacular view of Mount Otemanu.

The size of the bungalow ranges from 1,500 to 3,500 square feet with pools, whirlpools, and outdoor dining. Also, each bungalow features a viewing panel that gives you a glimpse of the turquoise water underneath.

As the St. Regis Bora Bora is part of the Marriott International Portfolio, a card like Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card from Chase with a new cardmember bonus of around 75,000 points will help make this trip come true.

Before flying back to your native, drop by at the Tahitian pearl farm or go on an excursion lagoon cruise to see sharks preying on stingrays.

Also, make sure you make a reservation at the St. Regis at least a couple of months ahead of your trip.

FALLING ASLEEP UNDER THE NORTHERN LIGHTS

Wish to experience something surreal and magical on your dream trip?

Catch a flight to Reykjavik, Iceland. Located 65-degrees north and at the edge of the Arctic Circle, Iceland offers you the best chance to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights without having to endure extremely cold climates like in parts of Scandinavia.

Take a dip in the Blue Lagoon, a thermal spa complex located just a few kilometres away from Keflavik International Airport before heading towards the Northern Lights. In case you wish to stay in Reykjavik, there are several companies offering Northern Lights tours. On the other hand, you can rent a car and drive, but be aware of the Icelandic roads in winter.
