7 Things You Need To Do Before You Move Abroad


via

So, you’re moving abroad. There are lots to get sorted over there; whether it’s finding accommodation, sorting out a job, sorting out schools, getting furniture shipped over, opening a bank account, the list goes on. However, while there are things you need to set up before you arrive so that it all goes smoothly, there’s also a lot of things you need to tie up at home before you go. With so much on your mind, some of these things can easily be forgotten, so check out this list of seven things you need to make sure you do before you go. 

Cancel Any Memberships
You don’t want to start your new life and still be paying for your old one. So, if you have a phone contract, then you need to cancel it as soon as you know that you’re moving away so that you can give them some notice. Also, don’t take an upgrade on your phone, even if you are eligible, you need to cut ties as soon as you can. Then there’s your gym membership, your magazine subscriptions, and any other monthly fees you have. Have a look at your bank statements and direct debits to see what you are getting charged monthly for your TV license, your Sky package, your Internet. You may be able to keep Netflix, but you might need a VPN so that the Internet thinks you are in your home country – if not, cancel and get a new membership in the country you’re moving to. 

Re-route Your Mail
You don’t want to miss any vital mail, but when you are moving abroad, you can’t just get it re-routed to your new house. So you could either get it sent to a friend’s house to save for when you’re back, send it to you, or open for you. Alternatively, you could go on physicaladdress.com and get a virtual address, so you don’t miss a thing.  

Go For A Check-Up
Make sure you book all of your health appointments before you leave and go to them. It’s essential to get your eyes checked, your teeth, a physical from the doctor, and if you’re a woman, then make sure you have birth control for the next year. Of course, there should hopefully be healthcare where you’re moving too, and it might even be better than what you’re used to, but it’s good to know you’re going in top condition and you then have time to find a doctor and a dentist once you have moved. 

Get Travel Insurance
Make sure you’re covered until you’re settled in your job, and you know what company benefits you’re getting as you should get insurance through them, but you’ll need to check.
                                                                                                                                           
Buy back-ups of your favorites
Your cosmetics, any toiletries, and shampoo, and don’t forget any of your favorite food that you won’t be able to get, which you’re there. Check online before you go and make sure you have a good stock so that you don’t run short. 

Change Your Car Insurance
Car Insurance will need to change you sell your car. Even if your vehicle is parked in a garage unused, you need to insure it. 

Flying and Moving Pets

If you’ve got pets, then you need to find out about moving them and how you can do it. Is your pet allowed into the country your moving to?

How To Slow Down The Signs Of Aging

Your body is aging, and that’s something that no one can stop from happening. It’s apart of life. The skin on your body is the biggest giveaway when it comes to your age, and so it’s important to have a good skincare routine. By slowing down the aging, you’ll find you shock more people when you tell them your age. Here are a few tips to slow down the signs of aging.

Stay Hydrated
Hydration really can end up being the best form of skincare for your skin because our skin is made up of mostly water. In fact, our body is, and that’s why when you’ve not had enough water, your appearance looks tired and dull. You should be drinking plenty of water each day, so try to keep a constant supply on you throughout the day. Whether you work in an office or you’re on the go, there should be no excuse for not drinking your daily intake of water. Not everyone likes drinking water and flavoring it with fresh fruit, and certain vegetables can be handy to make the water more enjoyable and not feel so much that you’re forcing yourself to drink it.

Use The Right Products For Your Skin Type
There are so many products out there that so many will try and use products that aren’t suited for their skin and therefore won’t work for them. You want to find out what your skin type is and our skin type can change so you might be currently outdated. You can find this out by going into a beauty store or checking your own features online compared to the skin types that are mentioned. It’ll either be dry, oily, normal or a combination of the two. Find your skin type first and then you can work on getting the right products to suit your skin. You’ll find that once you do this, you’ll find the results to be better when it comes to improving your skin.

Try Beauty Supplements
The beauty industry is undeniably huge across the globe, and therefore, there are so many products out there that promise the world and not all of them deliver on that promise. When it comes to giving your body the minerals and nutrients it needs, it’s a good idea to try out some of the best beauty supplements that are available currently on the market.

Cut Out The Bad Stuff
There are plenty of bad things that don’t help your skin. This might be smoking or drinking excessively. It could be the food you eat or just not having a proper skincare routine in the evenings to get rid of the day’s makeup and dirt. So try to cut out these bad habits and things in your life that’s making you feel and look less than yourself. Start a bit at a time so that it’s doable.


Slowing down the signs of aging can start from your twenties because it’s aging the moment you’re born. It’s never too early to start off!

4 Reasons Why it's Great to Be Single


via

The idea of not being in a relationship is something that fills some people with dread and I totally get that. I have been there. I have been there so many times. However, if you embrace your status as a singleton, it can be genuinely empowering. The realization that you are completely fine; on your own, and don't need to be with someone to be complete feels fantastic. 

Here are just some of the benefits that come from living the single life:

Your Life Goes to Your Agenda on Your Terms

Being in a relationship can make you truly happy, but it can also mean that you set your dreams aside for the sake of the relationship. You may have dreamed of pursuing a specific career since you were a child, but a serious relationship can make you reorganize your priorities and put your dreams to one side. Being single means that you can make plans that align fully to your goals. You can pursue ambitions that you hold wholeheartedly and without distraction.

No Need to Compromise

Relationships are full of compromise. Compromise can become such a habit that you are no longer aware that you are doing it. From what color to paint the bedroom walls, to what to eat, compromises need to be made each day when you are part of a couple. Yet, when you are single, the number of compromises that you need to make; are far fewer. From everyday choices, to more significant life decisions, they can all be made without compromise.

Complete Freedom

No romantic commitments mean that you can do what you want when you want to do it. You can go out and have fun without needing to tell anyone where you are, and you can see who ever you want to. If you don't feel like it, you don't even need to venture outside to have fun. You could use a FREE Phone Chat instead. Of course, the freedom that a single life brings isn't just about dating and meeting people. It also opens up a whole world of possibilities for you. For example, if you were offered a big work promotion that requires regular overseas travel, you could go for it. There would be no need to talk things over with your partner about how you would make it work. Instead, you can go with your gut instinct and see where the adventure takes you.

Empowering Experiences


Being single means that you have a greater need for self-reliance. It could mean you can't off load tasks to a partner; if something needs to be done, you have to do it yourself. While this may sound a bit scary, it is incredibly empowering. You begin to gain a vast amount of experience in different situations and build your resilience and independence in the process. You will develop the peace of mind of knowing that whatever you need to deal with, you are perfectly capable of handling it all by yourself and that’s pretty cool.

7 Wardrobe Fashion Staples To Have This Fall

via



 Fall is such a wonderful season. I love the magical transitional period from summer into winter. With the season changing to cooler weather and wetter days; it is the perfect excuse to bring back your layers in preparation for the colder months ahead. Plus add a few new staple pieces as well to boost your wardrobe for the fall season. However, from a fashion perspective, fall can be a challenging time to dress for; so here are 7 fashion staples to have in your wardrobe to keep you prepared for any occasion. 

1.) A Basic White T-Shirt
I cannot express this enough; a basic t-shirt is a staple that everyone should have in their wardrobe and it will span across all of the seasons. A white t-shirt is the perfect base layer no matter the weather and looks just as good under layers as it does out in the open. Pair a basic white T with dark jeans, boots and a jacket for an effortless fall look or layer it up with a scarf and statement jewelry and sweater for something more sophisticated.

2.) A Leather Jacket
I am obsessed with my leather jacket. It literally goes with everything. You can dress it up or down, and pretty much goes with anything. A good quality leather jacket is a must have for the fall season, offering enough protection and warmth from the fickle weather but also being lightweight and easy to wear if the sun does pop out. For maximum versatility, stick to a basic black or brown jacket with simple detailing.


3.) Cozy Boots
Personally I am a boot girl all year long. I love boots. I love wearing them in the summer with shorts and jeans. But boots really come into their own in the fall season and it’s the perfect time to crack out those you’ve had stashed away over the summer months. A good pair of ankle boots are perfect for everyday wear and a statement over the knee boot adds a touch of glamour to any night out.


4.) A Leather Bag
Leather and faux leather are such great materials for the fall season, offering a bit more protection from unexpected rain whilst also pairing perfectly with the autumn golden color scheme. Finding the perfect everyday leather bag is a must for the fall season; try to find some that are both stylish and functional such as the Dutch leather bags which are known for their practicality without sacrificing their aesthetic. 


5.) A Statement Scarf
As the air begins to hold more of chill a statement scarf is the perfect autumn accessory to add a bit of warmth to an outfit. Go for a pattern or color to add a little something to a simple outfit or opt for a chunky knit to add a little texture. Adding a scarf is the perfect item to jazz up any outfit.


6.) Metallic Jewelry
A lot of autumn fashion is very soft, so why not add a little intrigue by wearing a glimmer of gold or silver? Bracelets, necklaces and earrings can take an everyday outfit from day to night whilst also providing a little sparkle to a dreary day.


7.) The Perfect Pair of Jeans 
No fall wardrobe would be complete without the perfect pair of jeans. I love jeans. All color jeans - blue, black, grey. I cannot get enough. Finding the perfect pair of jeans will depend a little on your own style but whether it is a simple pair of skinny jeans, mauve mom jeans or fabulous flairs your jeans will be the core of many an autumn outfit, so find a style that suits you and invest in a good quality pair to last you through the season.
