January 2016 sponsors 

January 2016 sponsors, thank you for supporting my blog and for working with me. I am so grateful and hope to work with you all again.

Thank you sponsors

January like December is always a busy month, a month dedicated to new year’s resolutions, goals, new life choices & changes and also known as a month of trying something new. Those who know me or have been readers of this blog for a while will know I am anti-resolution but a huge believer in goals. Every month I set goals I want to accomplish and if I don’t no worries I move the goals to the next month. Part of my blog goals for this year is to improve blog sponsorship and January has started off great.

Without further adieu

From Dream To Reality ~ Something that has become the norm in the blogging world is only sharing the good bits of everything posted online but excluding the reality, travel blogging is no different. It has been reported lately in the news that people are giving up on their day-to-day lives and opting for going traveling and exploring the world, what most of these bloggers are neglecting to do is sharing the hardships of travel blogging and this post shared a post by a company who shared the not so glam world of travel blogging. Successful bloggers also know it is important to have the right insurance for all the traveling.

Valentines Weekend ~ As we enter the month of Love, we shared some ideas of how you can spend the Valentine’s weekend with your partner or family. I love planning our Valentine’s Day even if we are not doing anything it’s just nice to put ideas together.

Beauty Review ~ Throughout the month I was fortunate enough to work with ASDM Beverly Hills an American company. I reviewed the Tempez face cream, the Hyaluronic Acid Serum and the Vitamin C Serum. Having the right product can help you maintain your face and prevent blackheads, pimples and even wrinkles.

Tips to renew your bathroom was a collaboration with Click Basin that we shared with you in January, I called upon my sister in law’s expertise to help me write this post and share with you some of her tips when renewing or when you’re thinking of renewing your bathroom. tips to renew your bathroom

Sixteen Destinations for 2016 ~ It is no secret how much I want to travel this year and how much I have already booked/planned so this collaboration with Flight center UK came at the right time (better yet right year). I was able to share with you 16 destinations that I am hoping to visit this year (hopefully) and possibly extend it until next year.

My sister-in-law and my brother have put there home on sale last year so when this opportunity came about to share our thoughts on house evaluations and getting the best price for your home, we thought we share with you some of our tips. get the best price

Have you ever wanted to go on an awesome camping trip in Australia, we collaborated with motorhomes to give you different ideas on how you can experience awesome camping in Australia off the forbidden path, I for one know I definitely want to at least do it once.

    Well, my aren’t we the busy little bee. I love being busy like this though. I remember when I wanted my bathroom renewed, but for a different reason. Hubby knew I needed something different since my back surgery, so he told the guys to put the tall toilet in. God, he’s so thoughtful that way and I bless him every time I sit down. Silly to you maybe, but not to me. You have no idea how much that helps.

      Not silly at all actually quite Romantic how thoughtful your hubby is

    • February 5, 2016 / 1:53 pm

      Thanks Jasmine it truly was

    We have a little guest bathroom (I guess it is more like a powder room???) that would be perfect for me to remodel. Thanks for the tips!

    • February 4, 2016 / 2:40 pm

      You’re welcome

    Very nice group of posts. Who wouldn’t want to do some awesome camping trips in Australia?!! Do they have creepy bugs there? i hate creepy bugs.

    • February 4, 2016 / 8:19 am

  6. February 4, 2016 / 7:09 am

  7. February 4, 2016 / 5:31 am

    Sponsors indeed rock. You are off to a great start. I agree with no resolutions but goals instead. Goals are long term and should be treated as such. Cheers to a great February!

      Thanks so much Mimi absolutely goals are long term

  8. February 4, 2016 / 2:53 am

      Thanks so much heather, I hope so too

  12. February 2, 2016 / 11:11 pm

    You’re so right, people often mask the cons to being a full-time travel blogger. The media really makes it seem so awesome, which I’m sure it is, but there are a lot of sacrifices, I’m sure.

    • February 2, 2016 / 11:37 pm

      Absolutely and for me it annoys me when some travel bloggers don’t give the readers the full picture

  13. February 2, 2016 / 7:55 pm

    Sounds like a fantastic month – I hope February will be even better for you! Kaz x

    • February 2, 2016 / 10:58 pm

      Thanks Kaz I hope so too and wishing you the same

  14. February 2, 2016 / 7:39 pm
