Habits I Picked Up Whilst Travelling

Finding Time to Read

When your budget is small and you can’t afford to go to the MOMA in NYC or shop till you drop on Fifth Avenue… You go to the park and read. As it might be your cheapest option. I found myself reading a lot more whilst travelling because firstly, I had an abundance of time for myself, secondly it was free (if you already have a book) and thirdly I just enjoyed being able to stop, sit-down and take in my surroundings whilst reading a great story.

Keeping Up With My Skin-Care Routine

There is no excuseΒ for getting sloppy with your skin-care whilst on holiday. You have all the time in the world!!! It also helps to believe in the products you’re using. I took a trip to Glossier the first second I got to New York (read here) and bought a bottle of Milky Jelly Cleanser. The whole experience of buying it directly from the Glossier Penthouse then using it for the first time and being blown away, has made me want to look after my skin so much more.

Soaking In The Moment

Be in the present moment. Look up from your phone. Enjoy the beautiful sunset. Soaking up the moment is such a wonderful thing to do because you suddenly notice what’s happening around you and how lucky you are to have the things you do. You may be sitting in you living room whilst reading this, with your pet on one side and a cup of tea on the other.. Be grateful you have both those things right now. You may be reading this laying in the park sun bathing, be grateful for the beautiful weather, the breeze, the birds singing and the trees that provide shade.

Drinking Coffee Everyday

I didn’t say all these habits were going to be good ones!! Yes, I’ve gotten myself addicted to coffee. Particularly iced. When I was in New York there was a coffee shop 30 seconds away from the place I was staying and then in L.A there was always a Starbucks close by. I honestly feel like I work/write better whilst I’m caffeinated so it’s not all bad news, right?

Sticking To A Maximum Of 5 Outfits

At first, living out of a suitcase was horrible, but after 2 weeks I felt fully adjusted. I actually began to love not having too many things to choose from because it cuts your options and makes the whole getting ready process much quicker! Even after being home for almost 2 weeks I’m still wearing the same outfits I wore whilst away. I’ve finally created a capsule wardrobe!!

What habits have you picked up from travelling or being on holiday? I’d love to hear some of yours πŸ™‚



  1. I realize that while traveling I read the most because I enjoy reading while walking at the same time. I know it might be dangerous but this really helps me in getting into the world inside the book that I’m tasting.

    Great post! Travelling definitely limited the amount of things I was taking for every travel adventure. Before I was packing way too many things not even necessarily ones I needed. Now I am very happy with the small luggage which makes life so much easier πŸ™‚

  3. I really liked this post! Now I’m on holiday and I realized that I started to keep up with my skin-care routine more than ever! I have all the time and there is no excuses πŸ™‚ Also people tend to pack fewer products while travelling or being on holiday. May be this is another reason because you don’t have to choose which product to use since you already have limited items haha πŸ˜€ xx
