11 Solo Trips to Take in 2017

11 Solo Trips to Take in 2017

eatlivetraveldrink

11-solo-trips-to-take-inJust a little over 13 months ago I started traveling solo – and I fell in love. I strongly encourage everyone to travel at least once solo in their life. The things you are going to learn about yourself are going to change you. You are strong, you are fiercely independent, you are a problem solver, and most importantly, you are going to learn to love your company – because you are enough.

Here are 11 trips to travel solo this year:

  1. Iceland – it only seems fitting that I would start with my first solo trip. Iceland changed me in a way I will never be able to comprehend into words for you to read – but just know that this country, this small island, is full of magic around every corner. From waterfalls to the Northern Lights to glaciers – you are going to love it.

Evanescent..Just like Fireworks!

Evanescent..Just like Fireworks!

From the moment I read Evanescent I can feel everything around me fading away..

Just like fireworks.

They shoot up and brighten the whole sky in vibrant colors and vanish into darkness of the night..

Let me share with you some memories of the most amazing fireworks I ever got to witness. It was one of the best nights of my life.

Living in Dubai, I got to know that that Dubai is attempting largest ever firework display on New Year’s Eve 2014.

Loaded with incorrect instruction, we walked 7 km on that frosty night to reached a spot which was centre of the whole display. It was tiring and frustrating ..let’s say we Survived the night

But the moment fireworks began… I got lost in its magic for good 15 to 20 minutes.

It was a breathtaking … magnificent…hypnotizing!

This is what the papers said next day:-

pumps-shoes-in-dubai

High heels. It’s a love-hate relationship. As young girls, most of us couldn’t wait to have our own pair. Maybe you’ve even walked around on your tiptoes, practicing your high heels walk. But while heels are a female thing these days, did you know that when high heels were invented, they were actually for men?

A Quick History on High Heels

It all began in the 1500s. According to historians, the Persian army needed a way to keep their feet in the stirrups. Thus, high heel as a form of footwear was born.

Soon after its inception, the European elites began wearing high heels. It became such a fashion statement that it soon filtered down to the rest of the population. However, the rich were not…

HOW TO CARE YOUR DESIGNER BAGS

Luxury bags cost a small fortune. Try as we might justify our splurge with, “Oh, it will last me years,” we still need to show it some care and love to prolong its lifespan.

If you’re willing to slightly break your bank with these designer pieces, then surely you wouldn’t mind going the extra mile to keep them in mint condition as the day you bought it. Thankfully, there are easy, foolproof ways to keep your bags in amazing shape.

Designer-Handbag

Give it some extra protection

Before heading out, make sure to give your bag some extra protection. Use protectant sprays on your leather bags to precondition it for the outside world. But be mindful before you go spray-happy! Some protection sprays can actually affect the color of the bag so make sure to test it out on a small spot first. There are also fabric protector sprays for canvas bags available. Ultimately, these sprays will not only protect your bags from external damage but also acts as a shield from spills and dirt.

Keep it groomed

Perhaps one of the reasons why women get rid of their bags before their time is because they don’t take the time to groom their bags. After each use, make it a habit to clean your bag. This will prevent the dust and dirt from the day to sit into the material. Leather bags can be wiped down with unscented baby wipes. For suede bags, use a gentle brush to groom it. This will also help get stains out. But don’t brush too hard! Too much pressure could damage the material of the bag.

Store them properly

How do you store your bags? In a pile at the bottom of your closet? That’s the worst thing you can do! After cleaning, place it back inside its dust bag. If it didn’t come with one, you can recycle an old pillowcase. Steer clear of keeping your designer bags in plastics as this will damage the leather.

Remove stains the right way

Stains are every woman’s nightmare. Thankfully, there are surefire solutions to say goodbye to these days! But first, you need to know what kind of stains you’re dealing with. The wrong cleaning method can do more harm than good!

Food stains can be quickly remedied with crushed white chalk. Apply it over the stain and allow it to sit overnight. Use a clean cloth to wipe it off afterward.

For oil stains, apply cornstarch as soon as possible. The worst thing you can do is let it sit! Rub the cornstarch onto the stain to absorb the oil and brush the powder off with a clean cloth.

Get rid of ink stains by using a white eraser to quickly clean the spot. However, if the ink has already set in, then you’ll need to take the bag to a professional cleaner.

Condition the leather

As we’d like to call it, moisturize it! Naturally, leathers change colors and dry out over time. To prevent flaking and wrinkling, generously apply leather conditioner with a soft cloth and rub all over. Leave it on for 10 minutes to allow the leather to absorb it before wiping off the excess. Finally, leave it out to dry in an airy room then store it in its dust bag. Repeat the process every month to keep the leather at its finest!

Taking care of your investments is a walk in the park. Of course, there are more extensive luxury bag care tips but these are our top picks. These will help you extend the life of your bags so that you can use them for many more years to come!
