Travel destinations on my mind

I miss travelling so much and I am sure I am not the only one. Being able to visit different counties and experience life in another spot on the planet is a blessing. We have a couple of travel destinations we were hoping to visit this year but all those plans have been put on hold. Some of the places we had in mind to visit are places we have visited before but we never get tired of visiting.

Here are some of the travel destinations on my mind at the moment –

Disneyland Paris

We visited Disneyland Paris many years ago before the twins were born. I was really looking forward to visiting the park again with them. Disneyland is such an amazing place to visit. The kiddies love rides and all, so I know they are going to love it there. I am looking forward to visiting the park with them in the future when all the chaos and confusion are a distant memory.

Dubai

We have all visited Dubai a few times and that place never gets old. It is such a cool holiday destination. I love everything about Dubai. The weather is nice, the hotels are always so luxurious and there are so many things to do and see. We will definitely be visiting Dubai again.

Los Angeles

I have visited many cities in the United States but never had the opportunity to visit Los Angeles. It has been on my travel list for years now, so it will be nice to strike it off one day.

Malta

I have heard amazing things about Malta and I would love to see the country for myself one day. It is one of those travel destinations that sound good for relaxing.

Greece

Greece is another country we would love to explore one day. I have heard only good things about the country. It is definitely on my list of countries to visit.

I love travelling so much but I must confess, I am not in a hurry to resume exploring for now. The chaos and confusion going on is so off-putting, that travelling is the last thing on my mind.

What do you think of these travel destinations? Have you been to any of these places?

How to make indoor exercise work

It can be a bit tricky to exercise indoors. You may have to deal with issues with space and distractions. I have dealt with all of these and I know how hard it can be to get motivated enough to exercise every day but once there’s a will, there is a way. You will need a lot of persistence and determination to exercise indoors. The trick is to keep at it on a daily basis until it becomes second nature. I exercise in the mornings for about 30 minutes. My weekly target is to exercise for about 150 minutes a week and that includes walking, running, cycling, gardening, doing chores, and the likes. 150 minutes sounds like a lot but it is doable when you exercise for around 30 minutes on a daily basis.

I create my own workout session

When it comes to indoor exercise, I like to just go with the flow and do my own thing. Half the time, I find guided fitness videos do not really inspire me, so I have had to create my own workout moves that keep me inspired and get me to exercise every day. I usually start with stretches, yoga, dancing, and different moves.

The benefits of exercising indoors

Here are some of the amazing benefits of exercising indoors –

You don’t have to deal with the gyms

I have never been into gyms. There are always overcrowded and with the current state of things, I cannot imagine working out in a gym now. So being able to work out from the comfort of my home is a blessing. Plus you don’t have to pay for the pricey gym membership.

You can get the best of both worlds – indoor and outdoor

Exercising at home doesn’t mean you have to be indoors. If you take the workout outside and get the best of both worlds. This is a great idea, especially in the summer months.

You have a dedicated space for workout

You don’t have to worry about sharing your workout space with complete strangers, and spending minutes wiping every equipment.

You can go at your pace

When you work out on your own, indoors and outdoors, you don’t have to keep up with anyone else. You can work out at your pace.

At the end of the day, it makes sense to do what is best for you. We are different and so are our needs. There is no one rule that fits everyone’s fitness needs. You have to play around with different ways of getting your workout done to find the best way for you.

 

 

 

Haircare Secrets of the Stars

I got this amazing book – How to be adorned; A girl’s guide to Hollywood glamour by Caroline Cox. The amazing book is about all things beauty and I was reading a chapter about haircare secrets of the stars the other day. I found the chapter really interesting. It was fun to dig into all the beauty tips of the stars like a fly on the wall. Here are some of my favourite hair care tips from the book  –

Constance Bennett

Constance Bennett was an American stage, film, radio, and television actress. This beauty washed her hair every 2 weeks (like I do) with soap and eggs! After washing her hair with soap, she would rub in whites of 2 eggs into her hair and rinse it all off with hot water, then warm water and finally cold water.

Irene Dunne

Irene Dunne was an American actress and singer. Her haircare secret was rubbing in hot oil into her hair 3 three hours before washing, followed by a vinegar rinse. She washed her hair once every 3 weeks.

Eva Longoria

The beautiful Eva Longoria touches her roots with hairspray and eyeshadow the same shade as her hair dye to blend in. I think this tip is one to remember. I love her hair.

Madonna

Madonna loves showing off her roots. She intentionally lets them show to create an edgy look undone look and it works great for her.

Jerry Hall

Jerry Hall washes her hair once a week and doesn’t use a blow-dry. She allows her hair air dry and uses French mink oil on the ends of her hair.

Jennifer Lopez

The beautiful Jennifer Lopez aka JLO rinses her hair with mineral water to flatten the cuticles and help the hair stay shiny. No wonder her hair is always looking so good.

Do you have a tried and tested hair care tip to share?
