5 Things to Do in Malaysia You May Not Know About

Sapi Island, Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia


If anyone asked me to try and choose between any of the places I visited in Malaysia, I know I wouldn't be able to decide as aside from one or two places, our time in Malaysia was pretty perfect. 

Along with friendly people and cheap food, this country is also overflowing with a variety of different cultures and is truly unlike any country I've visited before. It's a destination that is so underrated, so try and get there now before everyone else realises how beautiful it is. 

This huge country is split over two land masses but I've picked out 5 things to do in Malaysia that you may not have heard of or know about. If you're visiting Malaysia soon or looking at adding some places to visit to your travel bucket list, these 5 will hopefully inspire you.

How Travel Taught Me What I'm Thankful For

Cameron Highlands, Malaysia
Cameron Highlands, Malaysia


We all go about our lives at 100mph busying ourselves with working, socialising and family all while being constantly connected to what's going on in the world through our phones. It can get so easy in this day and age to keep ticking over in our routine without really stopping and taking a breath. Even when we're on holiday and supposed to be relaxing, you'll normally be snapping away while thinking about which photo to post on social media later.

It wasn't until I went backpacking last year for 5 months that I fully stopped and looked at my life. It's funny how sometimes you need to take yourself to a desert island to fully open your eyes to what your life is like. We can get so blinkered with our daily life, but after I found myself sitting on a plane heading to the other side of the world, the veil was lifted and I really started to realise how incredible my life really is. 

There are many factors that I've realised I'm so thankful for in my life, but I handpicked the top 5 to talk about today. If you've found yourself feeling down and uninspired lately, maybe it's time to take a trip stripped back to the basics? You'll be surprised how much travelling can affect you and make you realise what you're thankful for.

New Spring Makeup Releases: What's Worth Buying

New Spring Makeup Releases: What's Worth Buying


As the days get lighter and slowly start to get warmer, I normally find myself reaching for different makeup products than I did during the winter. My skin completely changes from season to season, and I have to tailor my skincare towards it- you can see how I treat my skin during the winter here.

Once I've sorted my skin out - because ya know, it can be a tad annoying trying to put beautiful makeup products on your face if your skin is running riot - I start looking in my makeup collection and at new releases for different coverage and colour schemes. I transition from wearing heavy foundations to lighter ones, my blushers and bronzer become warmer in colour, and I start to play around with coloured shadows and eyeliners a bit more. The lipsticks usually stay the same throughout the year but I end up pushing my darker berry tones to the back of the draw while bringing the lighter pops of colour to the front. 

Seeing as I've been trying out a lot of makeup recently, I thought I'd showcase some new spring makeup releases that have been brought out, how I'm getting on with them and whether you should be popping them into your basket. I'm always on the hunt for new products, especially ones that I can take travelling with me, so I'll also be giving some of these a go in different climates as I go on my travels this year.
