This International Women’s Day, Travel 3Sixty and AirAsia Megastore chat about how ladies can step it up during travels to make an even more memorable holiday.
By Ellyse Ng
We love travelling and we can’t think of a better time than to share our girls-only travel tips for you fabulous women out there! Read on and sip on your Cosmos, ladies!
Stilettos Be Gone!
It’s a holiday, so you’re expecting lots of walking and exploring. Time to ditch the stilettos and opt for comfortable shoes! No, you don’t have to wear the ugly-looking sandals you kept in the darkest corners of your shoe cabinet (you bought them because fugly was in fashion at that time). Heard of boat shoes? What about the lovely ballet flats and even the summer-loving wedges? Pair them with your fabulous outfits and paint the town (or countryside/river/lake/sea/beach) RED!
Meet My Best Friend – Sunscreen
Honey, age spots are the bane of our existence, and the sun (as much as we love our golden tans) isn’t helping much. Lather up on sunscreen even if you’re going somewhere with a colder climate. Patch up the dried skin with moisturizers especially on the flight, and don’t forget your hand creams. A pair of sunnies to complete the glamorous look, of course!
Yeap, it’s a dangerous world out there. Make sure someone knows where you are, and try to never travel alone. If you’re with your girlfriends, stick together and make sure your phone is on roaming. Since we have a knack for planning, let’s put that skill to work with further planning on your itinerary and transportation to avoid getting lost. Remember to keep your luggage safe (even in the hotel room) and lock them with the AirAsia TSA Lock with Card Key.
Lightweight is in Fashion
Ditch the heavy layered clothes (unless you’re off to somewhere colder) and it’s time to bring out the sexy silk blouses and chiffon spaghetti straps. You get to keep within your luggage weight limit and look fabulous at the same time. If you’re going during winter, be smart and reuse your clothes in different combinations (so no one can accuse you of wearing the same outfit twice).
Want to avoid looking bulky? Opt for a warm inner layer or long john so you don’t have to pile up the layers on top. Don’t know if you’re within your weight limit? Bring along the AirAsia Digital Weighing Scale that’s small and lightweight to measure your luggage weight.
The huge shopping bag that you bought years ago despite others claiming it’s just too big…is finally useful! We know you need a whole lot of stuff, so this is the best time to make full use of your huge bags to throw in your sunscreen, makeup, sunnies, hat, wallet, handphone and maps. Of course, make sure you have a smaller bag to keep the important passport, handphone, documents and money, like the AirAsia 2 in 1 Set Passport Holder. Need a bag? The trendy AirAsia Tote Bag is ever so handy for you travelistas.
Easy on the War Paint
We know you need to layer on makeup sometimes when you’re on a holiday, if things get to hot and heavy (the weather that is), but you’re also looking at a whole lot of clogged pores. Ease up on the makeup, layer your face with some light BB cream, and sometimes all you need is an eyeliner and mascara to do the trick. The I Nuovi 6 Pc Brush Set boasts super soft makeup brushes in individual fashionable pouches that will make sure your makeup spread evenly and beautifully for a glowing vacation look!
Stay Sick Free
Vacations are never fabulous when you’re busy fighting the flu in the comfort of your hotel room. Stay germ-free by taking extra precautions by avoiding dodgy and dirty areas, unhygienic restaurants and even below-par hotel rooms. Be prepared with some basic medications for fever, flu, motion sickness and indigestion pills. If you suffer from motion sickness, the AirAsia Anti-Motion Sickness Wristbands can help in relieving the nausea before resorting to the pills.
