Having money saved to go travelling is essential no matter where you're travelling to or for how long. The amount of money you need obviously depends on a lot of things from where you're going, to where you'll be sleeping, the food you want to eat and the things you want to do. There isn't a specific amount of money I can say you'll need for your travels, as everyone's travels are so different. I can however hopefully help you out with some specific ways you can save money for travel.

10 Solo Female Travel Tips

10 solo female travel tips, travel insurance
The first time I ever travelled solo overseas I was 18 and fresh out of High School. While I had travelled overseas once before it was with my family. I will never forget the excitement and terror I felt as I walked down to my gate to fly to London, all by myself. 

I'm an anxious person in my day to day life so travelling always kicks it up a notch, especially when I'm travelling by myself. There are a few things I do though that help to make me feel a little less anxious as I travel by myself overseas, and some general tips for solo females travelling overseas.

6 Destinations On My Travel Wishlist

Travel has been the love of my life since I first left Australia by myself at 18 to spend a month travelling around Europe. The mixed emotions of fear and complete excitement as I walked to my gate to fly off to an unknown country, all by myself, I will never forget. Even today after travelling to various countries around the world I still get that same fear and excitement I got at 18, flying off into the unknown. 

The quote, "I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list" by Susan Sontag, really resonates with me and I'm sure most people who are obsessed with travelling. Below are the 6 destinations currently on my travel wishlist, but really there are so many more.

Winter Fashion Wishlist

As you can tell from my winter wishlist, my outfits in winter mainly consist of Turtle neck jumpers, jackets or coats, cute boots and jeans (not pictured because jeans are jeans). At the moment I'm a poor student but uni is almost finished so my bank account should go up once I can work more, and these are the items I'm going shopping for.

Turtle Necks are a must for my winter wardrobe as they cover my neck completely, which is awesome because I hate wearing scarves. They are also super comfortable and can be dressed up or down depending on the situation.

Jackets and coats, especially coats are a must have for winter in Melbourne. Jackets are good for a more casual day layered over a jumper, and I love wearing coats to work or more dressed up days. Because they're longer they also keep me warmer.

Boots, boots and more boots, this is what my current footwear situation looks like. I wear ankle boots all year round so I have a few pairs. I'd love to add a more intricate pair to my collection like the ones above, right now I mostly own a lot of black ankle boots.

What's on your winter wishlist?

My skincare routine has seem some changes over the years, as I've learnt what works on my combination/oily skin and what doesn't. I've been using this set of products for a while now, and my skin is the best it's been in a while, except for after the Easter chocolate binge. Here is my updated skincare routine for my combination oily skin.
