Do You Need Proof Of Onward Travel While Travelling Long-Term?

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

If you've been backpacking around multiple countries or have travelled long-term, then you'll have probably asked this question yourself or to others at least once. 

It's one of those travel questions that doesn't really have a definitive answer, leading you to panic that you could be turned away at the border or refused access to your plane. 

I was definitely one of those people. 

As someone who a) had never backpacked before and b) not flown longer than 4 hours to a destination, I felt completely clueless when it came to this. 

When we were leaving for New Zealand, it wasn't really clear when I looked online about whether we would need a flight out of the country and so we decided to chance it. However, when we arrived at Heathrow at 5am for check-in, we were presented with the question, "Do you have onward travel out of New Zealand?".

Before we knew it, we were looking frantically on our phones to book a flight to Bali for just over a month later.

The Beauty Essentials I've Been Loving This Summer

The Beauty Essentials I've Been Loving This Summer

I haven’t done a favourites blog post or video in what seems like an age. I’ve just not been keen on the added pressure of putting together a bunch of stuff each month to talk about as I find it can feel a bit forced. 

Sometimes I even question whether I’m featuring the product because I do actually like it, or if I feel like I should be featuring it to build up the numbers. 

That being said, when I feel like I have a nice little group of favourites to share with you, I’ll go ahead and share them, normally in the form of a season's favourite series rather than a monthly favourite series. 

So here we are. Summer.

My Growing Obsession with Leopard Print

My Growing Obsession with Leopard Print

This is a paid partnership with Boohoo.

Since returning from backpacking last year, it's been a bit harder to talk about fashion on here, mainly because I had no money to my name. 

That happens unfortunately when you travel, but even once I started earning again I stayed in my money saving default even though I was home and didn't have to think about budgeting as much as when we were away. 

However, in the last couple of months or so, I decided that I wanted to try having a capsule (ish) wardrobe. 

I think one thing that travelling taught me was that if I was able to live on 10 or so outfits that I loved for 5 months, then my wardrobe could definitely learn a lesson from that.

After this realisation came a huge cull of clothing, shoes and accessories that either didn't fit or I didn't love, which were then sent to more loving homes. 

If you want me to talk a little more about my wardrobe declutter or my capsule wardrobe that is coming along nicely, then do drop me a comment at the end of this post. 

Once I had finished my clear out, I sat down and made a list of things that I need to replace or that I wanted to add to my wardrobe- both in the form of basics and trend-led pieces. 

Two of the things on my list were bodysuits and leopard print.

How to Protect Dry and Frizzy Hair this Summer

How to Protect Dry and Frizzy Hair this Summer

As the British weather has been enjoying a bit of a (rare) heatwave at the moment, I've found I've started to have to deal with the type of beauty dilemmas that I would experience on holiday abroad. 

One of those is dry and frizzy hair. 

I was blessed with long thick hair which is really lovely to have, but as the temperature and humidity rises, my hair starts to resemble one big ball of craziness. 

It can be a right nightmare to handle, but after much trial and error, I think I've managed to put together a routine and dream team of products that are helping me tackle my dry scalp and frizzy ends. 

Take a peek below to see what I've been using to protect my dry and frizzy hair this summer.
