So yesterday my blog reached 100 followers, which is a milestone for me. I did not expect it at all, especially being that it all started while I was at home, on sick leave, for a whole week, being bored and finally being confident enough to go ahead with blogging (I’ve wanted to blog for at least 2 years prior to starting). Nevertheless, this is extremely exciting for me, as I am really passionate about the blogging world.

It’s become quite the norm these days to ask questions such as relationship status when you’re getting to know someone.

As most stereotypical women out there I tend to over pack sometimes (or most of the time), not only when traveling overseas but even on a small weekend getaway, however, I always manage to fit it all. Being that I’ve worked in retail (start of university years) selling travel goods, such as suitcases, travel accessories, backpacks/day-bags,  has helped me on the way I pack and organise myself when travelling.
