Watch: 9 Ways To Make Travel More Affordable
In today’s video I’m sharing the holy grail of my travel info! I should have probably mentioned it’s often (not always, but often) a lot cheaper to book an overseas trip on your own instead of getting a package. In this video I share my tips for making airfare affordable with a payment plan, how to get good rates for an affordable-luxury hotel, my budgeting guide for each day, where to get cheap halaal food and so much more.

Watch: Three YouTube Videos That Mattered This Month
As July comes to a close (and my love for YouTube continues to increase), there were three videos that hit home so hard for me as a woman. Judging by their view count, they clearly resonated with a lot of women too, so I thought I’d share them here. A YouTube rabbit hole, curated by me for you.
Watch Ascia Al Faraj bravely discuss her rightful choice to wearing her headscarf in the “middle ground” of the modest fashion realm and deny being a hijabi, cry with Desi Perkins as she shares her fertility battles and why you should never ask a woman if she’s pregnant or when she’s having kids and learn more about what it’s like to live with high functioning anxiety, according to Jordan Raskopolous at her TED talk.

Watch: How To Curl Your Hair With A Flat Iron
I’ve always preferred using a flat iron for curls and there was a time where this was my go-to style because I find curling to be a lot faster than straightening! My current favorite iron to use is the GlamPalm, because it allows you to adjust the heat temperature, the plates are super safe and it leaves behind a beautiful shine. Its plates are infused with ‘healing stone’ from the South Korean moutains, a mineral that has been used in Eastern medicine for centuries and protects your hair from damage and breakage.
I find this style works best with layered hair because it allows different textures, much more volume and more ‘bounce’! Before creating this look I recommend priming your hair, and on that note I’ve totally fallen in love with the new Toni & Guy Touseled & Texture curl spray, which you can use before and after styling because it works so well, doesn’t leave your hair feeling hard and it can be brushed and reshaped after.
