HOW TO TRAVEL ON A BUDGET (AD)

I admit it, I have travel envy. I always wondered how my friends and travel blogger peeps were able to whisk away to amazing locations so frequently! Surely it cost a lot, surely you used up all your annual leave? Well after research and actually speaking to my friends I realized it was more realistic than I thought. Below are my tips, that I gained.



Save and invest:

Pretty standard really, I'm not the best at saving to be honest, but having a nest egg for days you want to just book a flight is brilliant. What I have started doing is saving at least 20% of my salary each month. If you can't afford that try 10% or even 5% at first and see how that goes! Do a direct debit each month and you'll be growing before you know it.

Download apps like Monzo to monitor your spend and before you know it, you'll also be sipping Pina Coladas on a beach in Bali.




Hunt for the best deals:
I'm a woman that likes a good deal. What can I say, I love to live boujee on a budget.

I'm not going to go into so much detail about the places I look but you can find them here 

My faves have to be first choice and the tui brand for quickie package holiday deals, as well as my bae travel supermarket.



Borrow now, pay later:

We all need a break, and as such life gets in the way and you may not have enough to get away and you really need to. So you need a little financial help and a mini loan. Cash lady is a good example of this, As a specialist payday loan broker, their service is completely free of charge. They will not charge you anything at any point. Instead, they receive a fee from our lenders once they have successfully funded your loan.

Remember if you go this route, please choose something affordable and choose a realistic timescale to pay off your loan. You can find out more about how this works here. 

So there you go, work out the best option for yourself and enjoy!

BEAUTY| SHEA MOISTURE ARGAN OIL AND ALMOND MILK RANGE REVIEW

Salutations babes, how are we? I have been very busy, with weddings and events. Not to mention, I spent last bank holiday at Supadupafly, rooftop sessions and it was live. More of those events for summer, please! Anyway, onto the review! I was gifted the new Shea Moisture and Argan Oil and Almond Milk range to test out. I am not a stranger to the range and actually love using the products. Most people do not realize, but I am natural underneath my wigs, weaves, and extensions. I have been since 2012, so I do not relax my hair. It hasn't been easy, but I love seeing my curls pop with great products.

Protective styles are important for me so you can see I am rocking this wig from Wiggit, the relaxed blowout. This synthetic wig is goals and emulates black hair when blown out! I'll do a full review on this later. Now, I chose the range based on my hair concerns. It is great for:


  • Fine
  • Frizzy
  • Wavy
  • Straight hair
Other than having thin to medium texture hair, my hair concerns don't completely align with the uses of this product, I just loved the smell and love the properties of almond milk and argan oil. Which is extremely nourishing for dry hair and helps to detangle. There is also Shea butter too, and Shea is always a winner for me.

Just with my normal hair routine, I shampooed and conditioned and I felt my hair to be more nourished as I used the products. What I loved about the product is that the products were clean and contained no nasties, parabens, sulfates etc. The key ingredients will help me on my healthy hair routine, and hair journey. Yup, I am back on that again! I want to say a huge thanks to Shea Moisture team for the goodies. Have you tried these products before?
