CHEAP STUDENT FLIGHTS??? YASSS!

Do you know what's really annoying?  Seeing pictures on instagram of all these insanely beautiful, exotic places while you're busy studying for exams.


No seriously, Yas is a place and it's paradise!

HOW TO SLAY - NAMIBIAN STYLE

Monday, the 15th of May, was a big day for me - the day I could finally stop cringing when someone asked for my age and I had to end if off with "teen". I'm finally a twenty something (well twenty nothing technically). Cool, right? Tbh it's actually a pretty big deal for me. My excuse for everything in life up until that point was "I'm so young, it doesn't matter". Guess what Asha, it kinda matters now. I mean I'm still so young (I can't even legally drink in half of the world!), but now I don't feel like that excuse is valid anymore. I have no excuse not to have adventures. I have no excuse not to learn more. I have no excuse not to love more. I have no excuse not to get my shit together.




And most importantly, I have no excuse not to slay! This week one of the greatest Slay Queens if my life, has graced us with the ultimate guide to slaying - whether you're 20, 30 or even 102 (Yeah, we're gonna be bomb ass grandmas one day)!

LET'S GET HIGH IN THE PHILIPPINES (JK, PLEASE DON'T)

Happy belated World Press Freedom Day! World Press Freedom Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in December 1993, following the recommendation of UNESCO's General Conference. Since then, 3 May, the anniversary of the Declaration of Windhoek is celebrated worldwide as World Press Freedom Day. Speaking of Windhoek (No, not the beer!), we might be having a blog post about Namibia soon (Yes Elina, I'm looking at you). So often we take Freedom of Press for granted when so many journalists all around the world are being imprisoned and losing their lives for simply recovering the truth. Why are our voices still being silenced?  Did you know that Al Jazeera journalist, Mahmoud Hussein, has been detained in Eqypt for 141 days and counting? Yeah, that shizz actually happens in real life.



Anyway, it's time to get to this weeks blog post. We're still doing the guest post series where anyone who isn't Asha Singh can contribute to the blog (*sigh* I miss writing for you guys!). For this weeks opinion piece, we go abroad to a country I know very little about apart from the fact that it's definitely #travelgoals - the Philippines.

WHY I HATE AIRPORTS BUT LOVE ROAD TRIPS

Ironically I'm sitting at departures at an airport while I write this post, but this reinforces why I would much rather be in a car with my best friends having a road trip right now.

WHY I LOVE MUSLIMS

With recent events such as President Donald J. Trump's "muslim ban" there have been lots of negativity from the western world towards followers of Islam. Our generation prides itself on being all about radiating them good vibes, so I thought I would share with you some of my favourite things about the Muslim (Particularly Arab) culture.
