Tag Archives: Blazers & Bubbly

I’ve mentioned Julie of Blazers & Bubbly before when I said she was one of the reasons that I would never have a capsule wardrobe. The first time I met Julie, she was wearing the same pumpkin shirt that I was eagerly waiting for in the mail. And it was like “who is this living Barbie with such a fun sense of style?”

I admire Julie for being a breath of fresh air as a woman and a blogger. She’s gorgeous inside and out, but doesn’t take herself too seriously. You’d see that with just one quick visit to her instagram. (And in how she answered my #wcw questions.) I love her playful, colorful, quirky style and she pulls off everything she does flawlessly. Aside from her day job and her blog, she also runs a boutique on her blog with gorgeous bralettes and super fun trucker hats. I’m itching to get one of her Unicorn Barbie hats for my collection once Lent is over. And honestly- I can’t wait to see what she’s going to be wearing this Saturday to our Bubbles & Bloggers Barbie Brunch!

As much as there are a lot of benefits to a beach holiday, it can leave adventurous travelers like me bored after a few days. After all, sunbathing on the beach can get repetitive after a week. Therefore, you need to do something more exciting to ensure you have a holiday to remember. Here are some easy ways to make your travels much more interesting than just sunbathing on the beach.

Consider going on a safari

If you are an animal lover, nothing will beat heading out on a safari for your next holiday. Getting to see some of the most amazing animals on the earth in their natural habitat will definitely make for a vacation to remember. And you can go on a safari in many different fantastic countries. For example, you could go to Kenya to enjoy a fantastic safari while enjoying the great weather. Or you might even decide to go to Africa to enjoy the wealth of amazing animals. And then you can explore the amazing country when you are not out on the jeep. Therefore, consider a safari holiday to ensure you have a vacation where you definitely won’t end up bored.

Go on a city break

Rather than heading on a beach holiday, you should consider going on a city break instead. After all, there’s nothing better than exploring new places and visiting top sights in the area. And you will get to learn all about the history of the area while you are on your city break. To make it more interesting, you could even go to a couple of cities to have an amazing trip. For example, you might want to go to Europe and go to Paris and London which are only a couple of hours train ride apart. And make sure you go on plenty of trips while you are in the city to ensure you see everything it has to offer. You might even want to book something amazing like a helicopter ride or a hot air balloon to ensure you get great views of the city. And you can look online to find out a hot air balloon ride cost to ensure you budget for it.

Think about going on a skiing holiday

You might want to consider getting sporty for your next vacation. After all, you aren’t going to get bored if you are active on your travels. You might want to consider skiing as a great activity you can do for your holiday. In fact, millions choose to go skiing every year to ensure they have a fabulous holiday. After all, it’s so thrilling hitting the slopes with your nearest and dearest. And you might become an expert before the end of your trip! Evenings in a chalet with a log fire makes it a great holiday too. If you are going to brave skiing, make sure you read my previous blog for mistakes you need to avoid.

And don’t rule out heading on a cruise for a holiday that will be memorable. After all, you will be stopping at so many different places with so much to see and do!
