Travel | Sao Joao & Beyond


Late last month I visited a side of Goa I don't normally see (North Goa) with Goa Tourism to experience the festival of Sao Joao.
On the day itself we went for a boat cruise aboard the Santa Monica, then took part in the celebrations at Campal & finally we witnessed the boat parade at Siolim.
We were put up at Miramar Residency, which is so beautifully lush (the restaurant could be better, although they have a phenomenal breakfast buffet). I bunked with Diipti, a passionate traveller & the blogger behind Travel Diaries. All in all a fun way to spend three days! I made a video of the trip which you can find above, so do watch it & let me know what you think - I'm still new to making videos so any feedback would be appreciated.

Zoutons Website Review

Today I'm doing a website review for one of my favorite coupon websites, Zoutons.com. I've been shopping online a lot this last month (haul videos coming your way soon!) & it has been absolutely indispensable to me during this time!
There are quite a few coupon & deal aggregators so what makes Zoutons special, you ask? Firstly, I love the layout. The Popular Coupons section on the homepage displays the best deals that are currently running.
Using a coupon is super easy too, just press the big button that says 'click to activate deal' & your deal is then applied to your cart!It's very easy to navigate & find what you're looking for. They carry coupons of all major ecommerce websites in India like Snapdeal, Amazon India, Jabong, Myntra etc. But they are also the only Indian deal website that features bank coupons. Most banks have special offers for their debit / credit card holders but in the past it's been very difficult to figure out which offers are running. Well not anymore, as on Zoutons you can check for coupons according to your bank, that makes life a lot easier.
In the past month I've used coupon codes to buy shoes, a tripod & pizza. Because cheesy pizza is the best. thing. ever.
They have coupons for all of the major websites I shop from & they are in the process of adding new websites too. Overall I've found Zoutons very convenient to use & I know that they will always have a place in my bookmark bar.

5 Unexpected Benefits of Designer Luggage


Have you ever dealt with a low-quality luggage set that couldn’t stand up to regular wear and tear and started to look shabby and cheap after just a couple of uses? While visiting exotic locations to relax or see historic sites may be fun, an unattractive and poorly-crafted set of luggage can make you embarrassed to travel and could even cause damage to your belongings. If you want to make the best use of your money, here are five unexpected benefits that you can enjoy if you purchase designer luggage.

Attractiveness
When you are traveling for business or for pleasure, you want your luggage to be just as attractive as the clothing that you have carefully selected to wear. Generic luggage will blend in with everyone else’s, but designer luggage from http://www.ghurka.com will help you stand out in a crowd. If you want to feel confident while traveling, purchase quality name-brand luggage and you will achieve your goal. 

Durability
Many people settle for cheap luggage sets that will need to be replaced after only a few vacations or business trips, but durability is one of the most notable benefits of purchasing designer luggage. Whether you purchase a designer laptop bag or a large rolling bag that you can stow away during your flight, you will soon discover that name-brand luggage is as durable as it is attractive. If you are looking for durability, ditch the generic luggage options and go for attractive name-brand luggage instead. 

Confidence
When you are traveling the world, you want to appear as confident as possible, especially if you are on a business trip or if you are single and open to the option of meeting someone new while traveling. An attractive designer carry-on bag will help you feel confident and successful, which will in turn encourage others to respect you and take you seriously. Cheap and unattractive luggage will have just the opposite effect and will make you feel self-conscious and unapproachable. 

Gift-Giving
If you are searching for the perfect give to give to someone who already has everything that they want, you can’t go wrong if you purchase high-quality designer luggage. No one can ever have too many quality suitcases, and your gift will be sure to put a big smile on your friend’s face. If you want to give a special gift to someone who already has it all, name-brand travel gear will always be accepted with excitement and gratitude. 

Value
Because designer travel gear is so durable and attractive, it retains its value very well over time. If you are the type of person who likes to switch up your travel gear every year or two, you will probably be able to sell your older designer luggage set for a good price, and then use the money from your sale to purchase a brand new name-brand luggage set. Or, if you prefer to hang onto every valuable and high-quality item that you own, you can keep your name-brand luggage set in the family and pass it down to your children. 


If you want a luggage set that is attractive, durable, and retains its value well, make sure you purchase a quality designer luggage set for your upcoming trip.
