new year, new b...

Happy new year my friends! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday and new year celebration!
My very first blog post of the year #2019! So before I dive straight into #2019,  I’ll be sharing a quick glimpse of how fare #2018 has been with me here in today’s blog post.


For me, #2018 has been one of the best year I have ever had 🥳 if I talk about my travel adventures ( 2 foreign travel adventures and 1 small trip within home country India ) and how we moved in Singapore in the same year #2018.
I got the opportunity to travel in Thailand in March to have the best spring break in my life as far as I know, and where we stopped in Pattaya and Bangkok, love both of the cities, especially Bangkok ( If I can wipe off their traffic from my mind though, LOL) And I would love to travel this country again, if I can make my luck again!
And visiting Santorini was an amazing experience, although this was the world’s shortest trip ever, but it was worth that too!
And the BEST part of all these, was we moved here in Singapore. Well, not sure we long we are going to make it through here, but I am so so in love with this place!!!
And in the same year, we had flew in India again, for a family wed, and when we had thought to make most of our time to being in there, and we flew in Gangtok, Sikkim for a quick stacation!

Where life has had been at its BEST in travel in #2018, sadly my social handles weren’t 😭!!!! I was having issues using my Instagram handle, and almost by end of November ( or prior, not sure though!), I had lost the access to it!!!! I can’t explain you, how anxious I felt through those days, & months! I got frustrated in everything, as if  Instagram anxiety was coming out over everything and demotivating me in every aspect of my passion! I felt so clueless where to start it from all over again!
There was a time when I was introduced to my TRAVELHUES page, that I took to start it from fresh again and now struggling through from scratch to build my audience on Instagram! This still feels so horrible to me, and I can’t believe it!!!!!
And in the same year, I finally started posting on my YouTube channel that I wanted to do from so long back!

For my blog TRAVELHUES, it was a pretty good year, it converted into a good community from just an online diary! Well, I can write a thousand words here to share, how has had been the blogging journey through like, but to keep it short & sweet, I met few brands, who wanted to deal with me, where I got the chance to post sponsored articles. But I didn’t! I didn’t because I wanted to grow first before I take the steps, and wanted to learn first where I needed to. I didn’t want to rush myself, instead wanted to keep it simple, and real! And so it is today.


2019


Well, I though still can't believe it's 2019 already! But it's always exciting to start over a new year, a whole new book!
So I thought to share a few of new year goals that I would love to achieve!

Work on my Facebook page and hit at least 5k
Travel to United Arab Emirates (Dubai, Abu Dhabi), Indonesia, and more or less, haven’t thought deeply though!
I’m focusing more on my YouTube channel. And more long hair talks, real talks.
Drink more water and keep myself hydrated!!! Oh I am so bad at it!
Revamp my blog look and feel. And update my about page.

I think there are pretty more things, but I’m keeping it short and sweet!

Okay so that’s pretty much it for today! I really hope you guys liked it and thank you so very much for stopping by! Let me know what was the best one thing in 2018, you would cherish the most in the comment section below? Thank you again! Bye!
christmas celebration : how have i spent my christmas , christmas-celebration , travelhues by babita sen

christmas celeb...

Hey there, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and happy holidays you all! Well, here I sat by my laptop typing my content. Ahh not sure how to begin it, I feel like, December gets close before I come to know it, as if it ends sooner than other months! Does anyone feel the same, or can relate to me a few? Umm anyway! No blame on December, this entire year’s been a craziest year I have ever had! Okay, no I will talk about it later, for today’s blogpost, I wanted to make a quick stop and share with you guys, how I have spent my Christmas and what I wore, ate, etc.

As the tradition goes, I we went to JW Marriott Hotel to celebrate our Christmas and indulge in the wide range of delicious foods, & beautifully designed desserts ( yum .. I can still taste ‘em, so delicious! ) and wines!
Haha, okay, no lie, it’s not a tradition kind of things, we just end up going there every year, for the luxury stay, foods and hospitality! And I absolutely love that! Do you guys call it tradition? Please do let me know, ha? 😊

Ahh, for the foods, I though couldn’t manage to have all of the foods pictures, but you can watch on my YouTube channel somewhat good maybe!

You guys know, how tough it is to click, shoot a video and enjoy the moment, it is a real hardworking! And when you guys like it, the hard work turns to be good! Okay anyway, as I already mentioned above, foods were super delicious and the it was like, heaven of desserts! One time, couldn’t be enough!

And I tell you a secret, I have never tasted wine, I just took it, and acted for shoot!

Okay keep it aside and I let you know what I wore for Christmas 🎄 2018! I wore this plaid and ruffled hem dress and wore the rainbow sleeved knit blouse underneath it, to keep the Christmas colour alive! haha! How many of you agree, red defines Christmas?
Anyway, I layered my look with a long tailored jacket, I forgot to click the full look though, my bad! If you’ve checked / read my previous posts, you might know which jacket I wore! Anyway, I completed the look with my most favourite and best purchase of the year these ZARA OTK boots! These are like saviour!!!! They look so classic and keeps my leg warm. the product quality is so worth buying!
And I matched my boots with the sling bag I wore here, it can be worn both ways, handbag and sling, but the strap isn’t adjustable, you need to keep it wrapped inside the bag. And and that was my look for Christmas! Simple and sweet! Haha

1 year blogiversary, travelhues , blogiversary , travelhues by babita sen

1 year blogiver...

I can’t believe my little space of internet ‘TravelHues’ turned 1 today! 🎈🍰 How quick it has grown up to be 1 and experienced an entire year throughout, somewhat less or more. Officially ‘TravelHues’ turned 1 today but unofficially the journey and/or struggle/, organising things together, making my blog ready and rest of everything else took more than that to make it happen and look forward to what I love and want to do.
Where blogging mainly was focused on trekking and travel at the beginning, I found a bit of interest on foods alongside and wrote quite few about foods and restaurants! The journey was started at an another domain though! But I soon realised that food isn’t what I love and can live in, whereas travel and trek are an absolute love and it’s where, I can safely say that I can live in and within it. ❤️ And that being told! While I lacked interest in writing on foods and so my blog lacked contents / blog posts, I found, my personal style was cooking in my mind to give it a shape. It was when I took no time and bought another domain travelhues.com and shifted a few of the contents. I felt like I found that spark, where I can put together my passion and love, my soul danced like a happy kid! Aww I can remember that happy moment! I started blogging/ writing with love about what I love and find interesting.

Ever since then so much thing has happened also in this 1 year. TravelHues got revamped with a new look and feel. All this could have been possible for my development team, who worked every back and forth and understood me, and gave it a life! Cheers 🥂 to them!
I have published my YouTube channel and uploaded my first video/ vlog in between.

I have learned so many things in this past year and experienced quite lots of alongside!! And still learning, trying to put the best efforts throughout! It’s way more expensive, hardworking and so engaging like from shoots to edits, emails to meetings, etc. And if you’re living in two different counties, like few months here and there, it’s unpredictably expensive, hardworking, messy at some time and so much more that I can hardly put into words!

I’ve now learned how great hard work and time consuming it could be along with Insta. It needs so much time and efforts, like how we need to keep our social channels updated and engaging with pictures, contents beside showing your fellow followers support AND blogging on our little space at the same time.
It makes my day when my posts get a good hits on Instagram whereas when it doesn’t, it really so disappoint me!!! I also got a concern on this, like the number of followers on social media channels doesn’t mean much if they don’t come to my blog or love to join me from one to other social channels! Like, when I ask them to join/ subscribe me on my YouTube channel, I got no responses! I expected at least a few, but it failed to keep my expectations up! And that was really hurtful!!! (I have so much to say about Instagram that I have been reviewing lately! Will come up with that later in few days.)

And lately I have been learning on, how this little space of internet could turn into a blogging community. I feel so loved being surrounded by, so many beautiful, strong and supportive souls in both real life and virtually. I really find it so loving and interesting how we check and show some love to one another and put smiles and cheer every possible way! It’s truly remarkable how we even put a smile on everyone else’s face out there at the same time, and help to find out what could be the best for oneself to be dressed in, or, where to travel, stay, eat, etc. I feel like, as if it gets a life through the community (commenting, sharing thoughts and views, etc!), without a community it would have felt lonesome! While reading through one another’s blog posts, we relate ourselves somewhat less or more and find it relaxing at some point knowing that, there are many souls who experience the same/ or similar!

Ahh okay.. I think I got into a long lengthy detail! Let’s talk on my outfits details. If you’re following me on my Instagram and Facebook then you might already know that the complete look is from one of my favourite designer brand forever 21. This  white pencil skirt and the black blouse with big floral prints are absolutely love and fabric felt amazing. One can certainly enjoy this set in this sweltering summer days. White colour is so versatile that it goes almost with everything and cool to style year round.
That floral printed blouse has an off the shoulder cut. I love that!
And that crosssbody bag is so much love!! I cannot get enough of it, oh I’m using it so much! That’s been possible for that versatile colour. 😊 I will manage to make a separate blog post with this bag soon, since I have been receiving few messages and comments on it. I feel so loved for that! Guys keep an eye for that. ✨

Hope you people like it! I can’t thank you enough for checking in here in my blog, supporting me and sending me a comment, messages or an email through. You guys don’t know, how much I feel loved for that!!! Thank you so so much, you guys are amazing!!  I truly appreciate your comments, visits and any requests, suggestions you guys make. Thank you so much! So much love for you all!!! 😊

lazy weekend , lazy-weekend , travelhues by babita sen

lazy weekend

I woke up this Monday morning with the thought that it’s still Sunday but soon I freshened up reality happened! I think we all sometimes don’t like it to be Monday so soon after the weekend, be you a student or an office worker. Anyone else thinks the same? Sometimes my weekend ends up within my house, reading books, having time spent with family and playing with cousins. So I thought it would be fun to share how I spend my lazy weekends. Reading is the best habit to unwind and relax to make oneself stress free!

One more fun fact about this weekend happened was that we had a power cut for couple of hours on Sunday!! I hope you can imagine how warmer it could have felt, sweats and humidity along with the heat! It made me feel as if we’re already in June- July and summer has officially begun!!!! It was my book what I relieved reading through and enjoyed that time. But the best place when I finish my books real quick are airports / and flights or while on a train that being said! But while being at home, I read it quite slowly in between this and that!
How do you read your books? Anyone book lover there?
I love reading novels specially fictional ones. Sherlock Holmes (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) and Jason Bourne ( Robert Ludlum, Eric Van Lustbader) are my favourites read so far! Apart from that I remember, I finished ‘ The girl on the Train’ in 2 days! I mean the book was so damn interesting I couldn’t put it down from my hands! I so loved and enjoyed reading that.
What are your favourite reads? Novels or short stories? love story, fictional or science fiction?

Let’s finish off May with it and see what June has to offer! 🤫 😉
I hope you guys had a lovely weekend (watching t20 final match ) and thanks so much for stopping by!! Hope you have a great Monday! 🤓
we stepped into feb , dsc_0088 , travelhues by babita sen

we stepped into...

Aww! Did we already stepped into February? February has got to be my favourite month. It’s my birthday month. So exciting! Heart eyes are popping out. Haha But I am totally clueless how the first month of the year been spent and gone off. Whatever! I always am super excited to welcome the month February since it’s the month of love, month of reminder that spring is almost ready here to bloom in on us. It’s just 1 month until SPRING! Growing up SPRING and SUMMER have always been my favourites and I’m certain will so be in later days. Feb has so much to offer specially we have our birthdays in Feb. What could be more exciting than that!

Ah okay let’s keep my excitement aside and talk about this lunch date experience. I had a chance to go out for a lunch date, to taste some delicious foods and kick start the month. I was surprised that I got the chance to pre-celebrate my BIRTHDAY 🎈. It meant a lot to me, a lot! And the cake was so so damn delicious, it had my heart. The design and the taste both were a die for WOW. And so was the unicorn and butterfly 🦄🦋 🍪 cookies. I still have them with me I can hardly eat them soon. See how cute was it, cake’s colour matched my jumpsuit. Isn’t it so cute? Haha
When we dropped in the cafe everything was so pretty and beautifully decorated, foods presentation, ambiance of the cafe, the courteous staffs everything made me feel special and happy together and the day was so GREAT, couldn’t have been better! Jumping into new month and kick starting it, hardly makes everything perfect but when it’s Feb, it has to be perfect and loving. It’s my birthday month after all. It’s the month of LOVE, month of BIRTHDAY, month of fashion shows and so much more to name.

Hope you like the post and enjoy reading in. I’m so excited for the month. So much more to come and bloom in. See you friends on next post.

Note this post isn’t a fashion post instead living. I don’t have that category currently in my blog hence in fashion category! Soon I get my blog updated with menu, it will be categorised accordingly.
