8 Travel Essentials This OctoberLike4

This month’s travel essentials are special!!

For many reasons.

We collaborated with Vacheron Constantin with the Overseas Collection, the removable straps that comes in many different colors and fell in love at first wear especially when not long ago, Vacheron Constantin collaborated with Steve McCurry to illustrate the Overseas Collection. Like 12 hours of the dial, the photo journalist illustrated 12 unexpected locations and captured them as though it was in eternity. So when we were asked to collaborate with Vacheron Constantin, everything fell into place and we wanted to tell our own story as well.

The photo below is by Steve McCurry

 

 


 

 

1. CLARINS Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream – If you prefer a grainy scrub with larger beads then this is for you. Twice a week delivers the most radiant results and the reason why it’s on our list is also because of its compact 50ml travel size!

 

2. RIMOWA – It’s been three years we have switched to RIMOWA and never looked back.

 

3. Vacheron Constantin – A beautiful watch dedicated for travelers thanks to their interchangeable straps, any strap with any color at any destination and occasion to travel elegantly across the world.

 

4. Prynt Case for iPhone 6/6s – Print your images from your iPhone on the GO! With a rechargeable battery and a dedicated application for editing your images, it’s the cutes and coolest travel gadget! It’s around $150!

 

 

5. TOM FORD Complexion Enhancing Primer – One of the greatest primer used for traveling. Enhancing skin tones, helps when skin is tired, dull and fatigued from flights. A new member to our make up skin beauty while traveling!

6. Power Banks – You know you can’t live without them and you cannot go cheap!  Zendure A2, is a 6700mAh power bank that holds its charge well and endures/long lasting and has enough power to charge up your phone two- to three times (depending on its battery capacity)

7. Travel Bag by ASOS collection – It fits everything you need and carries on your shoulder. Front pockets are fantastic for passports and your phone to get out on the go.

    The watch, the watch, the watch. Vacheron has yet done the greatest collaboration with Steve Mcurry the greatest most recognized photographer. It’s a great collaboration indeed to have and I was always mesmerized by the Overseas Collection! Definitely the perfect companion.

  • Sailing has become our family norm in summers for a very long time - sleeping on a yacht for days has become somewhat of a summer tradition for Chloè now in Greece. I’ve been lucky enough to have great sailing experience and learning from the best. This summer, back to Portugal but this time across the islands for the very first time!!
  • She’s the girl that has a thousands things to say to you, and a thousands reasons not to... 💫
  • I can’t wait to go back to my beautiful home 🇱🇧 Have you been to lebanon before? ♥️
  • I read once that some people have the ability to magnetize the people they need to help push them even further into greatness. Some take them for granted, some don't see it because they are too blind. But for those who can see it, be grateful for it, because even if you think you don't need them, one day you might understand the chemistry you once had. 💫
  • Just found this photo, 4 years ago, when I was back in Sri Lanka, it feels like another lifetime, do you ever have that feeling when looking at old photos?
  • The start of summer days in Dubai isn’t so easy with the heat but I’ve managed to pull through by keeping busy with upcoming projects and getting ready for my trip back to Portugal in a couple of weeks for summer!
The exciting bit is that on Saturday the 9th of June in Dubai, I’m hosting another successful and popular workshop: ‘Let’s Get Social’ A workshop on how to turn your passion into a business and the use social media. You can message me to learn more on how to join and learn almost everything I know on how to run your business successfully on social media and tips on successful blogging! Happy Sunday everyone! ☀️
  • There is something you should know... I don’t have everything figured out. Believe me, sometimes, even the people who look like they have their sh*t together... sometimes don’t know what the hell they are doing, but that’s ok because we are not meant to all the time! ♥️
Thank you to @dennisstever for the picture 💫
  • The midnight sun. Where the sun never sets. Endless days... For once, I finally found a place where I had enough hours in the day to do everything I wanted. To take my shots without rushing for the sun to set and keep those color in the skies for more than just seconds and minutes and have endless conversations with friends. This is the sun at midnight beyond the arctic. The sun remains this way till sunrise in the summer from the 20th of May till the 21st of  June and we witnessed the first day of the rise of the midnight sun ♥️ thanks to my wonderful friends @pukkatravels where you can join my next trip in October but this time, we sail in search of the Northern Lights 💫
  • JOIN ME THIS OCTOBER!! The remote islands in Tromsø are one of the most rugged landscapes I’ve ever seen!! I’m so excited to share it with you for those who are interested in joining one of my next @travelwithtjd adventure series with @dennisstever who took this photo of me!!
In October you can also join us as we sail for one night in the arctic and into the fjords to watch the NORTHERN LIGHTS, the rest of our stay will be on land driving into the fjords and set a campfire to see the Auroras! 
It’s going to be an adventure with photography advise, arctic wildlife on ground, at sea and in the skies!
In partnership with my dearest friends from @pukkatravels 
Spaces are very limited and all the info is found in the link in my bio and you can always get in touch if you have any questions!! (More on highlighted stories) #TravelwithTJD
  • I hope you find that place one day. Where the chaos inside is understood and your heart feels at home... no matter where you are. 💫
  • Lost and unlost... Lost and unlost... Over and over again. 
It was almost midnight, (Yes, this is how midnight looks like) where the sun never sets till sunrise, and we decided to climb up the hill to see where we actually anchored the boat, knowing this was a remote island.  The wind was pushing us back and forth and we kept losing balance, no tripod would ever stand-alone. Then, when we reached the top, both Dennis and I froze, dropped to the ground from the shock and suddenly we were numb. The light from the midnight sun reflected the mountains, the sea, the grass and the skies turned pink and purple!! All of a sudden I had a rush of emotions that I couldn’t hold inside of me and my eyes were filled with tears, mostly from the wind and mostly from not knowing how to deal with so much feelings. 
This was a reality I would always want to stay awake for. Then, @dennisstever pulled his camera and took my picture when I was in my moment and I’m so grateful for that!! @pukkatravels @travelwithtjd
  • They say, reality is a projection of your thoughts. I’ve dreamed about sailing north of the arctic for years... I never doubted for a second that it would not happen ‘one day’ but, nothing every prepared me for what I’m experiencing on this trip witnessing the magic of the midnight sun!! I’ve seen and felt things I never imagined existed or at least only on @natgeotravel magazines. This is the start of my 3 day journey sailing in the arctic! 💫

I’m also very excited to announce our new partnership with @pukkatravels for our next @travelwithtjd #TravelWithTJD in October and now, you can join me too! Information will be up tonight on the link in bio!
