Now some of you might be wondering, 'Montserrat?' People outside of the Caribbean tend to only familiar with the big names; Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, you know the ones. But the Caribbean stretches much farther than those recognisable islands.
Season Five of ABC's hit show, "How to Get Away With Murder" came back with force and left many viewers, myself included, looking for their snatched edges. Now we're all familiar with the premise of the show by now; someone gets murdered and we work backwards each episode until we figure out who and then the story catches up to itself and insanity ensues.
If you're anything like me, when taking some prescribed R&R on a sparsely populated island far from your daily grind, you transform into your most low maintenance self. I mean minimal to no make up, no heels or signature fashion, you just laze your days away comparing sunsets and eating well. When preparing for this kind of getaway, I like to ensure my hair stays equally effortless.
Do you own a dual sim phone? More aptly, do you know what one is and how to make the most of it? No? Me neither until my first solo trip. But don't worry, I'm about to fill you in.

There are a ton of ways to profit from your dual sim phone while travelling and I've listed my favourites for you below.
Those of us without the coveted 20:20 vision who enjoy faking it like we do with our contact lenses, know it can sometimes get a bit tedious keeping up the prescribed level of care for our eyes while travelling. Bringing along extra solution, trying to stick to the 12 hour wear time, not jumping into the pool for fear of contamination can all get pretty tiresome when you're trying to live your best vacation life. But fear not.
So as I'm getting ready to take my next trip, I stumbled to the realisation that there are a ton of pre-trip rituals we all take part in that are just a little bit weird. I'm not talking about doing the essentials like checking and then double checking (and often triple checking) our flight times, because, let's face it, you can never be too sure. 'm talking about those practices that are actually a bit off the wall in reality, but seem like a rite of passage before our trip.
Answer me honestly; how many times have you psyched yourself up to book that dream holiday only to have the plane ticket price slap you right in the face and settle you firmly back on Earth? Yeah, we've all been there.
