The entire theme of London Fashion Week is: all eyes on you. This is one of the reasons why I chose to feature something from Alexandra Moura’s latest collection in a street-style setting. It embraces the cool, urban and confident woman, exactly what most of us Londoners feel we are or strive to be. We headed over to ‘the place to be’ where some of the biggest names in fashion (alongside new talent) were already making their way down the catwalk and receiving guests at London Fashion Week’s designer showrooms. We would be making our way to LFW’s Heavy London Showroom and into the streets surrounding the exclusive Brewer Street Car Park venue. It was a wonderful opportunity to bring Novelmodels Elite into the mix. As a boutique model agency, our looks and aspirations are more unique than the usual suspects. Model Serena, standing 6ft 1’ tall, was perfect for Alexandra Moura’s pieces which are known for giving an extension to the body form, creating incredible silhouettes and bold shapes - almost statuesque. My favourite from her Spring Summer 2017 collection is unsurprisingly the all black statement piece adorned with an iconic eye shaped embroidery. We paired it with a delicate tulle piece that flowed in the wind as we swept past the photographic frenzy poised outside on Brewer Street. Alexandra Moura’s designs play on the concept of contrast and polar opposites. So, naturally my second favourite piece was on point, a soft hooded jacket with a colourful flower-patterned jacquard. Just enough feminine power to make it a ‘hoodied’ street-style fave. The Portuguese born fashion designer has said before that she doesn’t necessarily follow trends when approaching her work. Her versatility, skill and uniqueness transcends the concept of time. Her creative drive is the process of learning about the identity of the self, and it is an on-going discovery. This makes Alexandra Moura a #LdnHOUSEfav, and we are excited to follow her work into next season.

Food Journaling Can Help You Achieve Your Health Goals
hether you are just beginning your health and fitness journey, or want to achieve a more specific goal, nutrition is the single most important thing to consider. Food journaling is a great way to focus on nutrition and has been scientifically shown to increase weight loss and keep on track with fitness goals. Food journaling consists of writing down everything you’ve consumed in one day. This may be a bit of a tough task, but it will benefit you in more ways than you think!
Awareness of Food and Liquid Consumption Your perception of what and how much you are consuming can be much different from what you are actually consuming. Food journaling brings awareness of what kinds of foods and beverages, good or bad, you choose to consume and how often. For those that don’t drink enough water, it will be a helpful reminder to increase your water intake, which is crucial for achieving any health goal. Eliminating Mindless Eating and Extra Treats If you have to write it down, you might not choose to eat it. By having to write everything down, it may actually deter you from eating foods that you would normally not think twice about. Recording food and drink intake will allow you to become more aware of what you are consuming, thus reducing mindless eating. This will help you to learn how to make better food and beverage choices.
Determine Your Eating Schedule By creating a food journal, it will reveal what times you are eating and how often you are snacking or skipping meals. Eating late, constant snacking and skipping meals are some of the main reasons as to why many are unable to reach health goals. By seeing your current eating times, it will be easy to see where effective changes have to be made. This will help you create appropriate eating schedule that will be suitable for your current needs.
Discover Hidden Symptom Triggers Food journaling is a great tool to find out what particular food, drink, medication, gum or other substances you are consuming are causing problems for you. Symptoms can appear as skin rashes, bloating, depression, anxiety, body aches, migraines and much more. By recording what you’ve consumed and the times, this will allow you to spot any trends of what may be triggering your symptoms. Don’t forget to include the time each symptom occurred in order to help pin point the cause.
Help Eliminate Emotional Eating If you are getting cravings for a particular food or drink, food journaling can help you figure out which emotions are causing these cravings. By recording your degree of hunger and emotional state with each time you eat, it will help to show you if you are eating out of emotion rather than hunger. Once you realize this, you can find more positive ways to deal with these emotions such as walking or meditating. Emotional eating is another reason why many struggle to achieve their health goals. Being more aware of our emotions will help us control our eating habits and lead to better results.
Help Your Practitioner Give Better Suggestions Bringing your food journal to a Nutritionist or Naturopath will help you understand what immediate and long term changes you should be making. Food journals are one of the first things a Naturopath or Nutritionist will ask you for. Make sure to eat as close to what you would normally eat as possible. They want to see you at your worst, which will allow them to help you manage what you are currently eating. This will help you make steady changes that will result in reaching your goals faster and with ease!
Reviewing your food journal once a week and seeing how your choices have changed since you first began will help motivate you to keep going! Remember- food journaling doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be perfect. Use as much detail as you want based on your end goal. Whether your goal is losing weight, finding food triggers, or maintaining good health; food journaling will help you to achieve that goal. If it seems to get too hard, pull back with detail and focus on the basics until you feel the desire to get more in-depth. Happy Journaling!
Live Well Easy steps to creating a journal...
6 TIPS ON HOW TO CREATE A DETAILED FOOD JOURNAL 1. Ensure you record each meal or snack right away. If you struggle with physically writing, download an app that will help you keep track of your meals on the go. The longer your take to record, the more inaccurate you may be. 2. Ensure you write down everything you consume and be detailed. Whether gum, milk and sugar in your coffee, or salt and other sauces with your meals. 3. Ensure you include all beverages with a separate section for water. Use mL or cups (250mL) as a standard. 4. Have a section to record what you were doing when you were eating. Eating on the go, or while paying attention to something else can affect the way we digest. 5. Make sure you include at least 1 weekend day and 2 working days. Your nutritional choices may vary on days you do not work. 6. Be honest. If you cheat on your food journal, you are only cheating yourself.

Fashion Article Exploring Eco Fashion written by Carmen Obied
Eco by Eko The world is going green – and the fashion sphere is no exception. The importance of creating ethical sustainable fashion is becoming increasingly recognised amongst designer and high-street brands. This rising conscientious movement is echoed in the emerging work of ‘Eco by Eko’, a line of sustainable apparel designed by Emily Katherine, who shared her insights with Fashion Shift Magazine. Emily is a recent graduate of the University of Cincinnati’s School of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning, and her mindful designs embody an elegant minimalist approach for strong modern women, each garment “defining quality through luxury textiles and functionality” shaped around durable construction and natural materials. Fast-Lane Fashion The impacts of the fast-lane consumerist culture we live in is becoming increasingly harder to ignore, as Emily stresses that “it can be overwhelming when you start to peel away the layers and realize how detrimental of an impact fast fashion has, it’s such a huge industry and almost every step of mass production is flawed in some way. For example, conventional cotton accounts for 25% of the world’s pesticides, more than any other crop, despite taking only 2.5% of agricultural land. The average t-shirt can use upwards 700 gallons of water for production, denim can take double the amount. Most of this water waste is polluted with harmful chemicals used during production, or pesticides from fiber growth. Material production has a huge impact on water consumption and CO2 emissions. When you factor in unethical labor practices, transportation emissions and packaging, consumer care, and end-of-lifecycle disposal on top of this, it becomes clear that the entire system could be improved in some way.” Exploring Solutions But how can we reduce social inequality and environmental pollution associated with this ‘fast fashion’? Emily, like so many designers, faces a dilemma between the immense passion for the art and craftsmanship that goes into fashion, and trying to seek a positive solution for the fashion-nature collision. Emily’s solution to the challenge, she affirms, “was to create something that proved fashion wasn’t inherently flawed, maintaining my creative process with a more ethical mindset.” In light of this, Eco by Eko is crafted from local production and natural, mostly locally sourced materials and fibers, such as silk, wool, organic cotton, or man-made cellulose-based fibers, like rayon or viscose. In the case of leather, she ensures the material is upcycled. In the fight against textile waste is the rising wave of textile innovation that Emily is eager to ride on, ranging from artificial leather grown from plant fibers, to recycled cellulose fibers such as Cupro. But ultimately, there is a need to influence the actions of both designers and consumers if we are to further progress the rise of eco-fashion on a global scale.

Joining Forces According to Eco by Eko’s philosophy, the design side can play a pivotal role in the industry’s movement by shifting to sustainable materials and ethical sourcing, minimising manufacturing/ transportation waste – a “mindful production”. However, for long-term change this needs to be a collective act, as Emily explains “consumer culture drives a huge impact on product development, so by supporting sustainable brands and initiatives we can eventually help shift the market. I think of it a lot like the food industry - recently there’s been a huge push towards clean eating and organic farming, supporting local organizations and community businesses. There’s a similar shift happening in fashion, just at a much slower pace.” There are two main ingredients for the eco-fashion recipe – awareness and support. Designers and consumers must join forces to lessen the environmental footprints of our clothing lifecycle. Shifting Choices A greater awareness of the stories behind the clothes would likely lead to a higher demand for sustainable goods, in turn creating a shift in the market and in people’s shopping choices. As Emily points out, this can be achieved by “being mindful of how we care for and dispose of our goods. The consumer use phase (mainly washing and drying) has a bigger impact than all other processes combined, which is pretty crazy if you really think about it, because production also takes a massive toll. I’ve seen companies like H&M and Nike that are recycling clothing - cotton can be re-spun into a really soft fiber, synthetics like polyester can be recycled into plastics (and vice-versa) - this seems like a cool way to close the loop by minimizing waste and raw material.” It is thus our social responsibility to actively seek alternatives and to move the industry forward we must “keep sustainability and innovation in the forefront.” Inspirations & Innovations Inherent in the fashion sphere is the duality between conforming to trends and creative individuality – and more recently, the ways this can be transferred onto wearable, sustainable fashion. Driven by her professors and employers’ sustainable approaches to the industry, Emily voices an ethical stance through Eco by Eko in the hope that sustainable goods and recycled fabrics will become more readily available. A dream-collaboration for Eco by Eko would be Miuccia Prada and Vivienne Westood, who Emily admires “for their outspokenness (in women’s rights & sustainability, respectively) and ability to translate this through their designs.” Some of Emily’s own personal favourite sustainable brands include Edun, Maiyet, and Apolis (menswear), while on the more affordable side she chooses Everlane, Reformation, and Alternative Apparel. Eco by Eko is currently finishing a collection and is excited to share some new material, while also exploring the idea of merging fashion with other visual art forms, through events, video or artist collaborations. Emily expresses that “currently most of us interact with fashion digitally; it feels more like products to covet than an art we internalize. But at the same time, style is accessible to anyone. Tumblr has the same influence as runway. I want to find ways to share my work non-traditionally, sort of exploring this balance of how we connect with fashion through technology as more of a visual art than a physical product. I’m looking to explore this idea more as a means to engage a broader audience with the idea of sustainable fashion.”
Exploring Eco Fashion
Mindful Environmental Lens Empowerment through ethical, simple transitional pieces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this is the balance Eco by Eko pursues for its consumers. Environmentally-friendly clothes that work in any setting or season while giving that little extra boost and positive outlook. Consumer behaviour plays a vital impact on sustainable fashion. As consumers, we should seek transparency within the clothing supply chain and production, exploring the origin of the designs, the artisans who made them and the story behind the products. This also holds true for the producers, who are responsible for the usage of resources and waste created by fast fashion. A combined effort is needed to push for ethical practices across the industry, adopting innovative approaches and technologies for a greener future. It is time for us to rethink our fashion decisions through a mindful environmental lens.

SNIPPETS OF A NOMADIC YEAR: FROM SOUTH AMERICA TO THE BALKANS
written by Carmen Obied
I breathed in the earthy humid air as I took another step deeper into the dense tangled jungle. As I trekked through knee-high swamps any sudden sound would conjure mirages of Cayman crocodiles known to roam these waters. Ancient watchful trees whispered stories across the mist threaded forest. An orchestra of squawking parrots and howling monkeys followed me as I explored this sensory maze. I will never forget the Amazon.
backpack, scuba kit, and boarding pass – these have been my three survival essentials of this spontaneous nomadic year. The moment I passed my Ph.D., I knew I was seeking a complete shift in lifestyle. As an underwater archaeologist with a curious spirited mind, I had a yearning for a stimulating adventure away from academia. My childhood dream had been to explore South America, submerging myself in its captivating nature and culture. Though I love the incessant, vibrant creativity and rhythms that flow through London, I needed to escape life’s rush. Coincidentally, a friend told me about a possibility to work in Chile. That was all I needed to hear – so I seized the chance, jumped on a plane and set off! I was suddenly teleported to the charismatic, colourful port-town of Valparaiso, where this year’s journey began.
ALPARAISO! As the bus turned beyond a mountain pass, I was suddenly welcomed by an explosion of kaleidoscopic colours of Santiago’s bohemian sister town, known to the locals as Valpo! And my new home. A dynamic harbour-town built over 45 hills on which its traditional elevators, ascensores, still trundle up and down the steep hills, cerros. From atop you breathe in this city with all its beautiful chaos, the same views that inspired the Chilean poet and activist Pablo Neruda’s poetry, and many others. This city re-awakened my senses and thirst for creativity. At every turn, I was faced with gritty multi-hued houses and alleys, with the town acting as a canvas for inspiring street art representing post-dictatorship progressive political expressions and movements. It was great to dive and explore Valparaiso’s bay, aside from the cold Pacific waters! The many shipwrecks and artefacts discovered in its bay continue
Street performers and Latin rhythms always resonated across Valpo, bringing the streets to life. Art festivals showcased influential artists like Chilean rapper and activist Ana Tijoux. I even made it onto the local newspaper once, enjoying a wine tasting event which gathered traditional wineries from around the country! It is also the town where I experienced my first earthquake – though common in Chile, the sudden strong trembling that pulsated through the apartment shook me! A fond memory was my weekly stroll by the seaside where I would be greeted by an unexpected horde of large sunbathing playful seals! This is Valpo!
TACAMA DESERT! A dry and barren lunar-like geology surrounded me. Silence filled the air. I felt as though I had somehow stepped foot on another planet. It was otherworldly. In the heart of Northern Chile’s Atacama Desert, Valley de la Luna’s jagged land is one of the the driest places in the world, shaped by the Atacama Desert colliding with the Andes mountains, pushing salt lakes below surface, leaving salt flats in view. Despite these arid conditions, the Atacama Desert holds diverse landscapes painted with soaring volcanic and Andean mountain backdrops, contrasted by vast salt flats, fiery rocks and flamingo-filled lagoons with beautiful symmetries in their waters. The towering summit of the Volcano Licancabur formed the natural border between Chile and Bolivia. Rock-formed ‘Monks’ and ‘Cathedrals’ shaped by volcanic eruptions and winds watch over the sweeping sand dunes, commonly compared to the ‘Moais’ of Easter Island. Spouting geysers and thermal springs lurk at higher altitudes. Local villages are filled with artisan crafts and designs, surrounded by wandering llamas and vicunas. This enchanting canvas is transformed with the settings of the sun and the revealing of the immense starry skies and milkyway that leave lasting imprints on your memory.
Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio De Janeiro
While living in Chile, my dream to visit Brazil felt within closer reach. So I thought, why not escape there one weekend during their biggest, most famous festival? The Rio Carnaval! Being raised in Portugal definitely came in handy and knowing people there meant experiencing the beautiful madness through the eyes of the locals. Vibrant colourful parades flocked the streets in the form of party blocks, blocos, with the most extravagant and imaginative costumes you could imagine! Loud, rhythmic samba beats resonated throughout the whole city, as did the people’s energy. A view of and from the Christ the Redeemer was a must, as were strolls sipping on coconut water along the shores of Copacabana and Ipanema. A delicious feijoada feast gathering hosted by friends’ families in their home was a highlight, with singing and dancing breaking out in that heartfelt, candid manner that seems to come so naturally to Brazilians.
Llama at Machu Picchu Peru
Rain cascaded down onto me, as fellow poncho-covered backpackers from around the world powered up precipitous trails, surrounded by floating misty mountains. It was the rainy season, which brought its own allure of mystery and enchantment. A sudden humbling realisation rushed through my body as I walked those same long-winding, narrow stone cobbled paths and steep slippery steps as the Incan empire once did, which took around 100 years to build. The legendary 4-day trail leading to the archaeological world wonder, Machu Picchu, or ‘Old Mountain’ in ancient Quechua, an oral language still spoken by native locals today! The journey started at the puma-shaped city of Cusco, the religious-administrative center of the Incan empire. The arduous hike underwent dramatic transformations from Andean alpine terrains to damp cloud forests, with the dissipating mist revealing river valleys and terraced Incan ruins along the way, forming connecting stories between nature and its past people. We camped in different remote havens along the way, gazing silently at the majestic views, a reminder of life’s serenity. Damp, sweat-covered and sleep deprived, but the thrill of the destination triggered my fully awakened senses. As I climbed the final steps, the rising sun dispelled the foggy curtains, uncovering the sought-after panoramic view of the Machu Picchu.

Though often associated with unfamiliar perilous and venomous wildlife, the Amazon jungle had always been to me a much fantasised haven which I yearned to explore. Maybe it was growing up as a wild child by a forest pretending to be a jungle native, but that vision followed me, eventually transporting me into the heart of Pachamama (‘Mother Earth’ in Quechua), through which its main artery flows, the Amazon River. The deeper I ventured into the jungle, I noticed the increase in humidity and diversity of indigenous wildlife, ranging from 222 species of mammals, 99 species of reptiles, 140 species of amphibians, 1000 species of birds, 210 species of fish and 2500 species of insects. My guide had grown up in the Amazon, and it was as though he could feel every movement and call that nature shared with us. There is a co-existence between nature and the resilient locals. To decipher the jungle’s language requires local knowledge, patience and a perceptive mind. From being surprised by playful monkeys, to being the one to swing from vines, I felt in tune with nature’s beat. As dusk set in, and we wandered through the night-veiled jungle, my senses felt magnified, alert to any hints of shapes or sounds within the shadows. Furry-legged creatures formed silhouettes under the torch’s limelight to the soundtrack of the dancing foliage. With the rising sun, came rising currents. After an ‘OK’ from the guide, I leapt into the immense fast-flowing river, and momentarily surrendered myself to its will. It was while journeying through the Amazon, with curious eyes, that a fresh peace of mind dawned upon me.
A place where the mountains kiss the seas. Soaring backdrops contour the distinct steep rocky shores of the Balkans. I have been lucky to explore the coastlines of Croatia, Montenegro, and more recently, their less visited neighbour, Albania. It is still relatively unknown and untouched… a beautiful country, rich in history. I was part of a team of international scientists on the “Albania 2016 Marine Science Expedition”, in search of ancient shipwrecks and artefacts along different sites in Albania, known in ancient times as Epirus.
ORFU STRAIT & ALBANIA
Just as ancient sailors did over 2000 years ago, we embarked on our expedition from the Greek island of Corfu, sailing across to Sarande, on the Albanian Riviera, then northward through and beyond the Corfu Strait to Vlore Bay. We sought temporary shelter along the way at Porto Palermo, where the Ali Pasha Castle lies. Before reaching it, we had to watch out for the inconspicuous reef that was hazardous to sailors throughout antiquity, known as the Devil’s Tongue. Below the surface rests the Joni Wreck, a large 4th century AD Roman shipwreck. As we navigated along this mountainous coast, we faced changing winds and choppy waters, so we continually adapted to nature’s whim. Along the largely harbourless Karaburun Peninsula, we caught sight of the distinct limestone-ringed rocky coastline known as the White Roads in antiquity. We anchored en-route, strapped on our dive gear and explored the seabed of Gramma Bay, a small natural haven where Roman forces landed, and Greek and Latin inscriptions of sailors are engraved on the cliff walls of the way, a sort of sailors’ ‘rock diary’. We then set sail around the tip of the peninsula where it curves into Vlore Bay, past the natural colour-changing border where the Adriatic and Ionian Seas merge. Along this stretch lies the Cave of the Illyrians, believed to have been a pirate hideout in the past. We explored threatened areas, finding evidence for ancient sea-level change and maritime trade. Our most exciting discoveries were large submerged remains at the fortified Roman port of Triport, proving to be far larger than previously believed, extending an additional 8 acres at least. It offered anchorage for ships on the sea and Narta Lagoon, linking ancient cities via major Roman roads and trade routes. On the return journey, we took the land route instead, driving south along mountainous winding roads through abundant national parks. We reached Lake Butrint, an inland lagoon linked to the Roman fortified colony and port Butrint, a key archaeological UNESCO World Heritage site in southern Albania. We carried out underwater cultural assessments of nearby areas, while enjoying evenings at our remote camp surrounding a fireplace in the company of scorpions and mosquitos, overlooking Corfu under a starry sky to the sound of crashing waves.

My fellow travelers, Facing websites for buying plane tickets can be extremely exciting! However, it can also be extremely daunting and annoying when it’s time to play. I am by no means an expert at buying plane tickets but I have definitely put in a fair amount of time buying them for work and personal travels. The way I look for and buy flights now is completely different to the way I used to go about it when I first started traveling...mostly because I used to think that using a travel agent was the best way to get a great deal!
heck it out; I’m going to share what I’ve learned with you about buying plane tickets. At this point, it’s important to note that I am going to give you advice on how to acquire the CHEAPEST tickets. If you are looking for a great deal and don’t mind sacrificing a little comfort for some extra cash in your pocket, this should really help you out. If you’re not into that, then just adapt the things mentioned in this blog to your taste and save cash accordingly. You can do it! Here’s what I have learned about buying plane tickets:
Travel Agents/Agencies From my experience, they are not bad, but they are not great and sometimes they can be outrageously terrible. The way they work is something like this... you essentially call them up, provide them with locations, dates, and a budget for a trip you would like to take, hang up the phone and let them do all work. The travel agent I used to use at the beginning of my travels wasn’t bad at all. He found me some decent deals and never made a commission on my sales because he was being paid by another company altogether. As I said though, the deals were decent...not great. There are also other popular travel agencies like Trailfinders. Personally, I would not recommend using companies like this. I can’t speak for them all but I have contacted a few of them over the years just to price out trips and it has always ended up being significantly more expensive through them, then it would be if I organized everything myself. This of course begs the question then...” Why do people use these services if they are not very cost effective?” From my experience and personal communication with others who have used these services; they tend to be more cost effective when organizing trips for larger groups. For smaller groups of 1-3 people, I wouldn’t use a travel agency. Personal Experience: My girlfriend and I recently booked a trip to hike the Inca Trail and trek through the Peruvian jungle of Manu National Park in March 2016! It was incredible! However, getting to the point of final confirmation for everything was brutal for us because we were trying to do it on a budget and it took a lot of time and research to make that happen. I can say this though, where there is a will, there is a way! For now I’ll just mention that trailfinders charged $1500.00 (U.S.) per person to make the trip happen (not including flights). With time and research, we learned that there are much cheaper and BETTER options for around $450.00 (U.S.) per person (not including flights). I’ll dedicate a whole post to this later because we definitely learned a lot of things that I know you guys would benefit from if you are ever planning on taking this trip! Look out for it.
Do it yourself: Three Basic Tips: • • • •
4-5 months in advance Tuesday - best day! Monday - Thursday - not bad Avoid weekends Airline services - LOOK EVERYWHERE!
I have read into this quite a bit in my ventures to find the cheapest deals possible and it seems that everybody has their own opinion on this. However, I find that the opinion seems to come to a similar conclusion between those who travel quite often. For that reason I have followed their advice in the past and have found it to be quite accurate.
Buy in Advance In my experience the old fashion rule of buying in advance is by far the best advice I can give. To be precise, 4-5 months in advance has been when I have gotten the best deals. The majority of frequent flyers have agreed with this whenever I’ve consulted with them through blogs, e-mail or other means of personal communication. Contradictorily, I have found that there are news article from Fox News, CNN, and various airline distributer websites that claim the best time to buy is 1 1/2 months before travel. This has NEVER been the case for me...EVER! I would not listen to this advice, unless you are booking a last minute trip....in which case you have no choice. (; Unfortunately, I have done this many times. Decent deals are still possible to find but are much harder to find and require much more time and effort to get!
Best day/s to buy Most frequent flyers and good news articles will agree that Tuesday at 3:00pm is the best day and time to buy a flight. This is because most airlines tend to release their specials around that time. Overall, I’d say all of Tuesday is generally pretty good. Aside from just Tuesday though, Monday through Thursday are the days that I have found the cheapest for air travel. The price seems to always go up no matter how far in advance, for weekend travel. For that reason...try to avoid traveling on the weekends if possible to make your money go the farthest. These are some of the better articles to read on this topic: NY Times Quartz Today Farecompare
How and where to look for tickets In my opinion, the golden rule for getting the best deal possible when looking for tickets is LOOK EVERYWHERE! My girlfriend and I usually look together on separate laptops and we each have around 10 different windows open (at least) displaying deals from all the different websites. There are some websites that tend to be better than others but no one website is best.
Some of the websites I usually use are as follows: Adjust the currency as needed, usually in the upper right hand corner of the home page. Cheapflights, Skyscanner, Kayak, Cheaptickets, Travelocity, Travelsupermarket, CheapOair, Seatguru, cheapflightsfinder, cheapair, Travelstart, Make my trip, Yatra, Orbitz, ebookers, Tripadvisor, flightnetwork, gohop, Onetravel, expedia, Airfarewatchdog, Momondo, studentuniverse Note: I have not purchased tickets from all of these websites, I have only searched for flights with them. I highly recommend googling the website’s reviews BEFORE purchasing to avoid scams.
It is also worth looking into the local airlines of the region you’re flying to/from, as they sometimes have better low-fare deals! See this website for an extensive list of National/International airlines with hyperlinks to their websites Nations Online
Baggage • Check baggage allowance BEFORE purchasing a flight • Buy baggage online (not at airport) • Buy a luggage scale Baggage is something you MUST keep in mind while you are purchasing flights. When searching for a cheap deal it is quite common to find an extremely cheap flight that has very little baggage allowance. This might be alright if you are going on a smaller trip or if the airline doesn’t charge an astronomical amount for excess luggage, but more often than not extra baggage will cost you quite a bit. Check the airline’s website before you buy the ticket and cause yourself a headache. I am telling you this from personal experience (I travel with a lot of SCUBA gear). Above all...make sure you purchase any baggage that does not come with your original ticket purchase ONLINE! From my experience, it will cost you twice as much at the airport (regardless of the airline) and you will be extremely sad spending a large amount of your “spending money” before you ever step foot on the airplane. Note: When buying baggage for tickets purchased through a third party website, check the baggage prices on their website. Sometimes they are decently priced and other times they are ridiculously inflated. If the prices seem too high on their website, call the the airline directly (with your flight number ready) and buy your baggage through them. This is a guaranteed way to buy your baggage at the cheapest rate. Also, I highly recommend purchasing a luggage scale! They are compact, cheap to buy, light to carry, and extremely useful to have! Don’t be that guy opening up his suitcases at the airport, shifting things around to try to make weight. Here’s an example of a good one for a pretty cheap price on Amazon. I hope this helps you guys out. If you have any questions feel free to get in touch...

TREND REPORT: S/S 17 If you want to prepare your wardrobe for the coming season, these tips will tell you the key pieces you need to buy. The upcoming trends listed here are sure hits – combine two or more to strike the right notes at any occasion.
olour Every season sees a new colour palette ushered in, and this time around we’re looking at soft neutral tones. Take sand for your whole outfit, or pair it with cool shades of Pacific blue (up to 20% on sales) and green. Ecru is preferential to stark white, and should be paired with denim. For sporty types, wear black and white on red backgrounds. The 70s trend ushers in warm orange (stay away from bright shades) in solid blocks or accents. Match it up with golden yellow in low volume and organic greens. Think moss, olive, and camo rather than khaki.
tyling Basic and classic shapes are all the rage this season. Don’t overcomplicate things – take those strong silhouettes and use block colours from the above list to really make an impact. Cross casual with formal so that you are ready for anything. The oversized trench should be worn extra long, and you can match his ‘n’ hers as this trend is also prevalent in menswear. For another outerwear option, consider the lightweight and retro windbreaker, as seen in the ski anoraks produced by Balenciaga. Make them colourful for extra points. The souvenir jacket, as seen at Gucci and Alexander Wang, marks the return of the bomber in silky and reversible fabrics with a strong print. What will you be wearing under it? Perhaps a pinafore slip with wide straps, hitting on lace and romantic trends across categories. Or an offthe-shoulder peasant dress in long evening shapes with embroidered embellishments. The crisp shirt dress is another option, largely traditional in style, with tied belts and long, fluted sleeves. The casual button-down mini also makes a reappearance, especially embellished and matched with a graphic tee. Try a boyfriend tee for those comfortable days, oversized and worn with a skirt and heels for the “boy meets girl” trend. Classic shirts are styled with a pinstripe and kept just-ironed crisp, while the belted blouse brings the 90s back: a wrap-around style with wide and overlong ties is just the ticket. You could also try a ruffle blouse to key into the peasant trend, with a structured and minimalistic approach. If you are wearing trousers, make them wide leg, preferably with side splits. Skinny jeans drop by an incredible 74% - hide them in the back of your wardrobe and don’t even admit you own them. Slim and crop jeans are a better choice. The side split also appears in palazzo pants, with either solid tones or stripes (just don’t overdo it). Micro flares on crops give you a subtle widening at the bottom; make it more of a statement with splits and ruffles at the hemline.
etails Strings and ties should be on everything, so long as they match the fabric of the item they pair up with. Shoulder ties give cold shoulder tops a way back in. Focus on the paper bag waistline with your palazzo pants and pencil skirts. Ladder trims are a huge key detail, on waists and at seams – and you NEED them on your festival dresses. Volume sleeves are a good match, with soft shapes, and you’ll want to invest in some net and mesh detailing. String vests layer up on shifts, and lace dresses acquire net panelling. Layer mesh with your tops to make a big statement. Embroidery is a serious trend going forward, and you will be seeing it everywhere. Look at Gucci for the how-to. Make casual items that much prettier, especially with feminine and Japanese-inspired designs. Floral patterns and stripes are both up, particularly chintzy florals with large hand-painted blooms or small buds across the whole outfit. Digital tropics are hugely in for evening wear and tailored pieces. Keep the prints against a dark background to really speak this trend’s language. The more clashing prints, the better. Think humble shapes if you are wearing ecru and blue, an update on the nautical look which will put wind in your sails. Mix up the stripes for a bold and colourful approach which takes this to a whole new level.
ootwear The babouche slipper with lace detailing is in, in, in. Wear them with wide-leg or crop trousers to show them off. Think Puma for soft slides, or turn it girly with ballet slippers festooned in ribbons. Keep those same ribbons for wrapped espadrilles. Heels will be blocky when paired with soft straps at the ankles, and chunky mules will bear cross straps as seen in metallic shades at Gucci. Loafers from the same house show us how to take on menswear, with backless designs for added sass. Woven shoes in rainbow colours give us the colourful craft trend. See Valentino for notes. Tassels make a big appearance here. Your sneakers should be Nike Cortez in rose gold or olive green, or opt for a luxe skater as seen at Calvin Klein. Satin uppers give it that expensive feel.
ccessories For those finishing touches, throw on some layered chain and pendant necklaces. These are the most popular jewellery item of spring/summer, though layered chokers are also a great hit. Start stacking large and multi-coloured costume rings with gems to die for. As for your sunglasses, these should have a gentle take on the cat eye, with softer edges. Pick out amber and burnt terracotta for your colours. Shoes and bags both love placement tassels this season, so make sure you switch out those fur balls fast. Make sure you pick up a contemporary saddle bag for your arm candy – either oversized or in mini, never in the expected size.

Exploring Underwater in El Salvador written by Christopher Begley, Ph.D.
It’s the twenty first century. There are over 7 billion people on the planet. Are there places left to explore? Were we born too late? It seems the age of exploration has passed, and all the blanks on the map have been filled in, right? Can we still be explorers?
bsolutely! In fact, this could be thought of as a golden age of exploration. New technology and new questions reveal a world full of places to explore. Even old questions have not been fully answered. One of the areas we are currently exploring more than ever is underwater. Diving is centuries old, but scuba diving, accessible to almost everybody, is relatively new. Underwater scientific exploration is only about 60 years old. Much of the underwater world has not been explored, and we have only begun to ask some of the most interesting questions. Recently, I was part of a team that explored underwater archaeological sites in El Salvador, in Central America. The archaeology of El Salvador is impressive, from large pre-Columbian culture to colonial era sites, but there still many gaps in our knowledge. One of those gaps included underwater archaeological sites. Our story starts with Salvadoran archaeologist Roberto Gallardo. An avid surfer familiar with the sea and the coastal communities, Roberto learned about several steamship wrecks from the 19th century, when steamships were among the most complex and impressive machines around. Furthermore, these provided the first continuous, sustained contact between the newly emerging country of El Salvador and the rest of the world. Roberto knew that these shipwrecks could help provide unique insights into the past, especially the early years of the Republic. What technology was used on these ships? What was the cargo? How were the ships maintained and repaired? How do these shipwrecks hold up to the pounding surf along El Salvador’s coastline? There was also another obvious place to explore. El Salvador has twenty potentially active volcanoes, and many crater lakes in dormant volcanoes.
We know that crater lakes were used as sites for rituals for many indigenous cultures in Central America, and some contain offerings from pre-Columbian societies, potentially providing insight into the religious life of these communities. Several crater lakes in El Salvador are located near large pre-Columbian archaeological sites, raising the question of whether these lakes might have been the scene of rituals or offerings like we see elsewhere. This year, we initiated a series of underwater archaeological projects in El Salvador to help with the documentation of these steamship wrecks, to explore the crater lakes, and to test various methods for locating and recording sites, including side-imaging fish finders, metal detectors, and underwater 3D imaging systems. We found several challenges. The crater lakes often contained several feet of silt, or thick vegetation that covered large areas of the bottom. The steamship wrecks are typically in areas with lots of strong wave action, making it hard to dive and potentially dangerous for the boats that take us there. Some of the technology was cumbersome or impossible to use in remote areas. Just getting dive gear to some of these crater lakes, especially the heavy air cylinders, will be an adventure. But we also found that the communities were very interested and supportive, and that inexpensive technology can be used to get results very close to the very expensive equipment we used to rely on. We are just beginning the exploration of El Salvador’s underwater archaeological sites, but this effort illustrates something we need to understand; we are in a golden age of exploration, where technology, ease of travel, and public interest all combine to make the next century as exciting as the previous one.
