If you’re looking for pretty much the best weather you can find, good shopping and stunning beaches, then Orange County, California is your destination. These are the best things to do to take advantage of this stunning destination.
Anyone with a sense of adventure must experience the feeling of getting lost in this maze of perfect chaos. It isn’t for the faint-hearted, but it is certainly worth the journey. Here are my top tips for traveling in Marrakech.
Seville is an incredible city—I’ve lived here for a year and a half, and I still haven’t run out of cultural attractions to visit. The heart of Andalusia can easily be toured over a weekend or for weeks at a time, since it has a manageable amount of major attractions and an enormous stock of less famous but equally impressive sights.
What is it like to live in London? At this time in my life, the pros outweigh the cons, otherwise I would be on a quick flight out of here. After living here for two years, here is my view on the biggest pros and cons.
Some people move abroad to ‘find themselves’, while others simply want to have an adventure to tell their grandchildren about. Whatever the reason, it is an undeniably great way to find inspiration, see new things, and challenge your conceptions of certain places.
For me, both times that I’ve moved abroad have been very humbling. I’ve been able to look at things with a fresh perspective, but most of all, I’ve made a surprising discovery—that all cultures have different prejudices, and noticing them makes you reconsider your own.
As I stepped onto the midnight bus to go from Leeds to London to then fly to Seville, I promised myself that I would never put myself through the stress of moving abroad again. Despite my love affair with living in different cultures, it is still painfully difficult to break up with a place that I’ve made my home. I did it in 2010 when I moved from California to England, and in 2015, I was doing it again by moving to Spain.
One of the happiest accomplishments of my twenties has been discovering the joy of reading. I used to read because I had to or I felt that I should, but now I truly love and cherish it as an important part of my life.
This year, my New Year’s resolution was to only support cruelty free brands with every skincare and makeup purchase that I make (and I buy a lot of toiletries). Considering that guinea pigs are my favorite animal, this was long overdue. And now I’ve taken it one step further – I’m choosing cruelty-free brands for soap, toothpaste and cleaning products, and the change feels oh so good.
Here are my best natural beauty tips from a lifetime of reading women’s magazines, watching YouTube videos, speaking with friends, and experimenting. Of course, this is just what works for me. The main idea is that you need to figure out what works for you.
This is a guide for those who are adept at cooking (like me).
Whether you work, study, or live a life of leisure, I highly recommend that you get into the habit of making your own lunch. If it hits the lunch hour and you don’t have a packed lunch prepared, you will inevitably end up spending money that quickly adds up to a hefty sum after several days. You may also end up buying food that is processed and unhealthy for the sake of convenience.
Admittedly, dating shows are one of my guilty pleasures, and for many people, they appear to be a source of harmless entertainment; however, their unhealthy undertones can often be apparent, highlighting how the media perpetuates stereotypes and gender inequality.
Industry and academic discourses indicate that in order to get a job in the media, relevant experience is extremely important. In order to get your foot in the door, it helps to have made connections and developed skills in this field, but this can be very challenging to do. Therefore, for people like me who want to build a career in this sector, acquiring a masters degree is not an immediate priority.
