REVIEW : TRAVELSTART STUDENT FLYING PAGE.

Hey guys what is good?! Welcome back to JourneySpeaks. Today I am coming at you with another blog post! But what’s different about today’s blog post is that not only is it something I’ve never done before but it’s something happening locally(in South Africa). So to all my local readers we can start dancing.
I’ve recently been introduced to a company called Travelstart which is a Cape Town based one-stop online travel shop and can I first just say MAGIC. Basically what Travelstart does is offer low airfares on international and domestic flights from different airlines, vehicle hire options from top car rental companies and hotel reservations bookable for properties on every continent Meaning they offer something for every traveler’s budget.

Now the best part about Travelstart is that Travelstart has a student flight page dedicated to all students (me and you) where they offer not only discounted flight specials but useful student tips on how to go about seeing the world as a student. Today I will be doing a review on their students flight page.

When I was first introduced to TravelStart I thought it was just another company trying to make money but to my amazement they were doing the opposite, trying to make us money! 

What I love most about the student flights page is that it’s so easy to navigate and work around with, for a person who’s always using her phone for everything I love that I don’t get any complications when using the page and I don’t have to switch to  a computer to be able to work with it. They’ve made it so easy to understand that you automatically know what you are doing even though you’re clueless.

What’s also nice is that on the page they let you compare flights and let you see what works well for you and what you can do to save money. The little app that they have on the page is also extremely useful especially for people who like to plan ahead and start saving before time because the little tool allows you to plan your flight, check what you need to save for the flight, what company you can go with and it breaks down the flight details for you so that you are aware of the time it would take you to get to your venue and how many kilograms of luggage you can carry.

I also love the fact that they understand that you are a student and that you are still learning about life so they’ve got all travelling tips and advice for you to make sure you make the right move. –Now who doesn’t need this? It’s like having your own travel assistant who’s got your back and makes sure that you get everything for the right price.

Travelstart’s student flight page is so informative that you can do your research right there. You always have a helping hand I believe you can always learn something and a BONUS is that they have a number that you can call when you need help with your booking(talk about kickass wherever you go service!). Please go read up on their page to learn a bit more about travelling and saving money . They’ve got so many tips such as How to book cheap student flights, Money saving tips while travelling and Top Tips For Moving Into Residence That Every Student Should Know! 

ts_logo_genericIf you are a student I’d like for you guys to check out Travelstart’s Student Flights page and make use of it because there is no way that you are loosing, it’s that type of a deal where you’re always on the winning end and please do share the page with your student friends so we can all WIN!

Thank you so much for reading, please give this post a like and leave a comment saying where you’d like to go to one day.

ADIDAS TRACKSUIT AND A BODY SUIT. OOTD 25:05:2017

Hey guys what is popping? Today I’m coming at you with another Fashion blogpost featuring these bomb ass pants that have for some reason being trending. I’ve had these pants for the longest time and only today I decided to take them out and do a little something with them.


I actually didn’t even think these pants would fit me when I took them out because of how long ive had them but God was like daughter, you don’t need to spend that R300, I got you.  I don’t know where I bought them but you can get something like this at Sportscene or Adidas.

The shirt I got from Legit last year on black Friday and I’ve been loving it forever since. It’s actually a body suit and I like how sexy it can make an outfit. 

Thank you so much for reading. If you loved this post please give it a like and then share it to someone else.

REVIEW : 24 MATTE PALETTE BY BEAUTY TREATS .

Hey guys what’s good?! Beginning of this month I told myself out with the basic  repeated eye shadow looks and in with the creative, new, look at me again looks. I went to Dischem on a search for an eye shadow palette that not only had a variety of colours but one that had if not great then good pigmentation. On my search I found the 24 MATTE PALETTE BY BEAUTY TREATS and I am quite in love.

I bought this palette for R85.00 and so far It was worth it. The palette consists of 24 matte shades that are suitable for any event. The colours in the palette range from a dark purple, lime green to a nude peach making sure that you have a colour for both the work place and for a nigh club.

A thing I don’t llike about the palette is the packaging. It is made with plastic and overall looks cheap but I mean you get what you get. The palette ha no mirror and no actual brush but those little sponge things to apply the shadow with.

The palettes pigmentation ranges from a 50 to a hundred. I feel like all the darker colours have more pigmentation than the lighter and brighter colours. I am more of a smokey eye and dark colours type of person so the pigmentation on those colours for me is great. However if you do like playing with colours and having bright eye shadow looks then you are going to have a problem unless you do keep on packing up more and more product and blending less.

When looking at the palette you will see that some of the colours have a bit of shimmer in them however it isn’t that much or noticeable when you apply it.

What I love most about the palette is the fact that the colours don’t fall off.  I hate it when your eye shadow dusts off onto your under eyes after you apply your foundation and then you just have this glitter or colour under your eyes that when you try to get rid of with your brush seems to blend in and then you just have this weird colour under your eyes, However from using this palette for the whole of this month I have noticed that the palette doesn’t fall/dust off onto your under eyes or cheeks.

The palette is long lasting and matte for sure. I have realized that I never need to touch up my eye shadow or add in any extra colours because the way I leave my house is the way I’m coming back with this palette. It doesn’t blur out or lose pigmentation as the day goes but however stay the way it was.

Overall this eye shadow palette is great for its money. It is great for people who are still starting out with makeup and want to experiment with a few colours and for people that love warm tone browns and smokey looks then I absolutely recommend this to you. I’d rate this palette a 8 out of 10 only because of the less pigmentation you have on the lighter shades. However this is a palette I would try again.

FASHION INSPIRATION. [HOT INSTAGRAMMERS]

Hey guys what is popping? Today I wanted to showcase a bunch of looks that have been giving me a lot of heat. With the new saving button on Instagram I have a lot of looks saved that I’d love to recreate. I have been loving a lot of the clothes that Kellie Sweet wears these days since I do like trashy kind of boyish clothing so most of these outfits will be kind of inspired by or similar to hers. 

Fishnets

Lately I’ve been loving fishnets dearly. A look could be just like any other look until you add fishnets. They are like the cherry on top. I haven’t been able to get myself are pair of fishnets but I just know I’d abuse them if I had are pair. PS : please let me know where I could get them in SA.

Sweat pants and jumper pants.

Jumper pants? Is that even a word? I don’t know but what I do know is that I love these type of pants. I’ve got two sides: the girly side and the boyish side. But sometimes I do like to mix up both the sides and get like an equally weird outcome. For example I’m the type to dress up sweat pants by wearing heels and bralets with them. 

Jackets

I don’t know what the disease is called but I’ve been obsessed with different types of jackets. I’d be the type to have a huge collection of them. Just like fishnets a jacket could up an outfit from a 0 to a 1000. At the moment oversized and long jackets are my favourite because they just dramatise a whole outfit.

Shirts and Dresses. 

Tight dresses and oversized shirts are where it’s at. I’m the type of person to up a totally basic outfit into something you’d think I spent a lot on. I find the fun in mixing and matching small little things until they become this overrated thing. For example how something as basic as a tshirt could be uped with an oversized jacket, fishnet and thigh high boots.

So those are half the things I’ve been obsessed with. I am planning a part two of this post with makeup though so if you’d be interested hit the like button. 

Thank you so much for reading. I really hope you liked this post.

HOW TO GET A GOOD NIGHT’S REST.

A few days ago I was introduced to an online matress company, Leesa and they had asked me to give you tips and tricks to getting a good night’s rest. For a very long time I had problems going to sleep that it went to even insomnia and whenever I did get a wink of sleep I never felt fully rested so I thought that this would be such a great topic to talk about.

Here are my tips to getting a good night’s rest.

1. Create an environment that is quiet and most comfortable to you.

I believe being comfortable is the easiest way to make sure you get a good night rest. So position your pillows to your own liking and spread your legs over the whole bed as along as your comfortable.When you are comfortable then you bed will be like laying on a cloud.

2. Go to bed early. 

How are you supposed to feel rested and awake if you go to bed late? Take two hours off of your TV or cellphone  time and put that into sleeping. Give yourself more than eight hours of sleep and you’ll definitely feel more rested.

3. Go with your routine. 

If you’re used to sleeping at 9:00 pm then sleep at 9:00 pm. Don’t procrastinate and do unnecessary things instead of sleeping. Doing this will put you off of your routine and make your body feel tired and that is why we always complain when we wake up, saying we are tired.

4. Have a snack. 

If you know you are about to sleep grab those nuts or crackers and take them to bed. I’m not saying have a whole meal but have a little snack to keep you going before your sleep. The best thing to do is to make it healthy. For example drinking warm milk or snacking on veggies.

5. Read a book. 

Before going to sleep have that one book that you read. I start feeling sleepy when reading books while I’m in bed so that’s a great way to get my mind to start preparing to sleep and to kick start my sleepiness.

Leesa has also given me a graphic to share with you guys on becoming a morning person. Feel free to download it and use it.

Thank you guys for reading! Hopefully you will get a good night’s rest with the tips I have given. Thank you to Leesa for giving me this post idea because honestly I think a lot of us suffer from a lot of rest problems and hopefully from this we can all sleep better.

COPING WITH SCHOOL, WORK AND SOCIAL MEDIA.[UPDATE]

maxresdefault

From the end of last year I had been looking for a Job. Reason being that I wanted to study this year and my mom didn’t have the money to take me to University or to any other further education Institute. Beginning of this year I found a job at shop called Clarks and decided that I would study Marketing Long Distance.

I have been doing that ever since and I must admit, it has been hard. I work from Monday to Sunday and get 5 days off every month. I am very grateful for the job that I have because it gives me a source of income and I still get to study however I have literally no time. Hence why I’ve been blogging less and posting less on social media.

While doing this I have met many beautiful people who make this less harder than it is. I have laughed continuously and learnt many different things. I have learnt that each day is an opportunity to learn and I feel like I have learnt to grow up emotionally and to deal with things in better ways. I have learnt to be independent and to stand on my own and not feel like there is something wrong with that.

Even though I will be posting less and doing less of the things I love, I want you guys to know that I love you so much and that I am gonna be trying my best to deliver content continuously. I don’t want you guys to feel like I am losing interest in this whole thing because you guys mean so much to me but I want you guys to understand the situation that I am in.

Once again thank you so much for the support that you guys have given me from the start till now. I honestly appreciate it.

Leave a comment telling me the hardest situation you have had to go through in your life, if you want to be private then you can email me.
