AD | GIFTED ⚡️ Another day, another door. I think if I don’t stop finding doors to pose in front of I’m going to have to rename my account to kirstyleanneanddoors, as it’s definitely getting out of hand now 🤦🏼‍♀️
.
.
As this has been the first travel picture I’ve posted in a while, I wanted to let you all know that I have something VERY VERY exciting coming soon. Whilst a few of you already know what it is as you’re involved,  I’m hoping it’s something that is really going kick start the conversations needed to push the plus size travel movement forward. It’s taken MONTHS of preparation, but it will finally be coming this Friday. This is your 3 day countdown klaxon! I’m so bloody excited/nervous 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣

AD | GIFTED 💙 I’ve had the most productive day ever moving around three of the rooms in my house. My conservatory is now my office, my office is now a spare room and my dining room is now in the kitchen. This means I officially have a spare room so now you’re all invited over for a big sleepover 🙌🏻😂

To reward myself for all the hard work (by hard work I mean watching my boyfriend do all of the DIY) I’m going to order pizza and spend the night watching episodes of Dexter. The perfect Sunday 👏🏻

Do you ever get those days where all you want to do is lie by the pool in the sunshine? If only I lived in a hot country ☀️💙🌵
.

I used to hate hot weather countries as I worried that as a plus size person, I would really struggle to cool myself down. No matter what I wore I’d always feel as though I was 100x hotter than everyone else, even though they were probably suffering too. Luckily, I think I’ve *finally* worked out some of the best ways to stay cool, just in time for my trip to the states next month. Good timing too, as APPARENTLY it’s going to be around 30 degrees by the time we reach Florida 😯☀️ #cactus #cactai #cactusinstagram #cactuslovers #cactusflower #instacactus #cactusporn

AD | GIFTED ✨ Okay, okay, I know it’s not Sunday yet but after the week I’ve had I REALLY wish it was. While attempting to redo my theme I managed to break my blog TWICE - it was so bad I actually thought I’d lost my blog forever. Thankfully it’s back now and after I few more tweaks I may even have a new layout I love. Bear with me though, I’m not sure I have the patience to edit each post separately just yet 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

AD | GIFTED 🌸 Is anyone else loving this warm weather? Despite all of the hail we’ve had today the last few days have been glorious and I could definitely get used to it. As much as I struggle in the heat, I think I’d much rather be hot than cold (can always jump in the pool that way) ☀️

Would you rather be hot or cold? ❄️☀️

In case anyone was wondering, this jumpsuit is by far the comfiest thing I have EVER worn, and I’ll probably be wearing it for the foreseeable future. 🙌🏻❤️
.
.
I always thought that jumpsuits were off limits as a plus size person, but honestly, I’ve realised it comes down to finding what you’re comfortable in. For me, it’s oversized jumpsuits with a little bit of colour (this one is v v oversized and would recommend sizing down potentially). Now, can @primark please make this in a million different colours and patterns? Thanks 😏👏🏻

AD | GIFTED 🌴 I’ve been a little quiet around here lately and honestly, I’m so glad to finally be back to posting. The last week has been choc full of deadlines and I am FINALLY seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I’m definitely going to need a cocktail or two by the time I’m done 🍹

One thing that will definitely be coming by the end of this week is my review of my stay at @thbhotels @thbtropicalisland - can I go back for this balcony view now please?! 🌴☀️ #gifted #thbhotels #thbtropicalisland #myfavouritespot #lanzarote #visitlanzarote

AD | Have you ever wondered what you would do if you were set for life? I know I have! Although there is a long list of things I would do if I was in that position, there is one thing in particular that stands out to me ⭐
.
.
As someone who loves travel and exploring new opportunities, it's hard to believe that there are still so many places left on my bucket list. Being set for life would allow me to travel somewhere new every month, giving me the opportunity to experience everything the world has to offer as I go. I'm thinking my first stops will involve snorkelling with sea turtles in Hawaii, completing the Inca Trail in Peru and spending the week relaxing in a floating villa in the Maldives. ☀️🍹✈

Whilst this may seem a long way off, The National Lottery are giving you the chance to win a monthly sum of £10,000 a month for 30 years with their new game Set For Life. Launched on 15th March, this is definitely an opportunity you don't want to miss! #ad #SetForLifeTNL #AmazingStartsHere @tnluk

As I’m now in the last two months before my Trek America trip I have been trying to save as much money as I possibly can so I don’t have to worry about spending money 🇺🇸💰
.
.
To be honest, I’ve never been great at spending bans so when I saw this cute dress in Primark it was obviously going in my basket. I couldn’t resist treating myself and throwing it back to the 90’s with my giant earrings and pineapple hair. You can tell the Spice Girls I am ready to join them on their tour now 💁🏼‍♀️

4 Ways To Be “Not Your Average Traveller”

Posted on Location:

Now, let’s get a couple of things clear — there’s no hierarchy when it comes to travelling. If people are getting out there and enjoying all that the world has to offer, then that’s fine. But to some people, the standard “heading overseas for a few days in the sun” type of holiday isn’t enough. They want more — they want to be true travellers, true explorers. They want to see and understand more of the world. But how do you go about this? We take a look at four ways below.

Speak the Language

One of the best things about being from the UK is that you can travel to all corners of the globe, and get by using your mother tongue. But the key phrase here is “get by” — yes, you’ll be able to order food and get directions, but will you be able to really uncover the truth of the region? It’s unlikely. For that, you need to be able to speak to the people on the streets, and for that, you must speak their language. They say if you visit South America and you can speak Spanish, you’ll experience it twice: once in the typical European visitor fashion, and once from the inside. If you don’t know which to learn, go with Spanish and French — they’re spoken all over.

See More

All of the world’s most famous destinations have a handful of attractions that every visitor positively must see. But is this really the case? Not always. If you have no interest in art, then an afternoon at a “must see” art gallery will likely be wasted on you. Instead, build your own plan. It’ll lead to a more satisfying experience when compared to just following the suggestions of others.

Know the Rules

Most travellers only have good intentions. They want to be respectful, they want to learn about other cultures, they want to make sure that they’re not detracting from the experience of the people who live in the destination. However, sometimes, good intentions aren’t enough. The world is too varied — what passes as polite in one country could pass as rude in another. To stand out from the crowd of travellers, read up on the cultural rules in the place that you’re visiting; a good place to start is this guide to global etiquette at Travelbag. You don’t want to accidentally insult a person in their own country!

Out of the Comfort Zone

Some people say they want to experience different cultures, but in reality, they just want warm weather. If you’re going to travel, then be ready to leave your comfort zone, at least a little bit. A person who gets involved with local celebrations, dances, eats the food, and all-around soaks up the culture will be a treasured visitor indeed.

Pushing yourself should also extend to conversing with the locals. You’ll learn a great deal from them, much more than you could ever get from a guidebook — and especially if you can speak the language.
