Traveling, Performing and Having that Look

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I have to admit that some of my more interesting and “nerve-racking” trips have actually involved me performing before an audience.

A couple of these trips which my job required involved me leading a song before a large group of people. And there was another trip which challenged me to perform a dance together with my group of friends. This last trip meant that we needed to put on some costumes. Looking back now, I thought we would have been more interesting to the audience had we gone one more extra step of altering our looks a bit. And this would have been simply and easily made possible just by donning on a wig.

Here are 3 wigs which would have made us look a bit “more interesting” and glammed up as we did our dance routine:

  • This Zury Sis Wig Viola Color Sombre would have made a difference on our look for that night. You see its play of shades would have had looked well as the lights were trained on us for that performance.

  • This Bobbi Boss Wig – M899 Yvetra would have really helped the look of the “fairy character” in our performance. The color would have given our co-performer an ethereal look.

  • I have to say though that a clean, no-nonsense look would still be great to have on a performance. So this Bobbi Boss Wig – M896 Andrea would have made sense for some of us in the group.

For a change in look as you and I perform before an audience, it is not hard to do really with the help of a wig or two (or more!). There are great wigs to choose from Divatress.

Travelling to Music Festivals in 2017

Do you like going to concerts  or music festivals?

While I like going to concerts, I have not yet taken one step forward that others would do — travel to another city or even country just to enjoy the live music of their favorite artists in a concert or in a music festival. Speaking of music festivals, here are some which are scheduled to run this year:

    • Exit in Novi Sad, Serbia.  If you’re into electronic, hiphop, punk, metal, reggae and rock music, then this can be the festival for you. Organized yearly since 2000, it is scheduled to run July 6-19, 2017.
    • Tomorrowland in Boom, Belgium. If dancing and electronic music is your thing, then you might enjoy this July 21-30 festival. It would be likely that electronic music DJ’s taking the stage will be geared with the best headphones, hdj might even be their choice for the night.
    •  Splendour in the Grass in Byron Bay, Australia. The “land down under” also has its own music festival which will run this coming July 21-23. This annual event has been held since 2001 and features alternative, electronic, hip hop and indie rock music.

  • Fuji Rock in Yuzawa, Niigata Perfecture, Japan. Reportedly one of the largest music festivals not just in Asia but the world, this will fill the air with rock and electronic music on July 28-30.
  • Rock in Rio, Brazil. This music festival traces its first one back in 1985. Other than in Brazil, it has also been held in different locations including in Portugal, Spain and the USA. This year, it is set on September 15-17 and 21-24 in Rio.

So how about you, would you be travelling for a concert or music festival this year?

Seven Unmissable Experiences in Argentina

Argentina is a destination that’s growing in popularity, not only for tourists but increasingly for students on gap years.  It’s the second largest country (by area) in South America, and it features a wide range of landscapes, from beautiful waterfalls and cosmopolitan cities through to unspoilt forests and laid back beaches.

If you want to backpack through Argentina as part of your gap year, here are seven of Argentina’s “must see” sights:

  1. Iguazu Falls:

A stunning natural feat that many feel is more beautiful and spectacular than the better known Niagara Falls. Yet whatever you think, there’s no doubt that these waterfalls are an impressive site, and if you visit the Argentine side of the Iguazu falls you can walk all the way up to the “Devil’s Throat” at the heart of the falls.  If you’re a nature lover, this is a must see sight.

  1. Mendoza Wine Tours:

Mendoza is located in the Napa Valley of Argentina.  There are a lot of things to see and do in the area.  If you’re the adventurous type you could go white water rafting or paragliding.  History lovers could pay a visit to the Inca Bridge.  Everyone should take a wine tour, though – even if you don’t like wine; it’s a great chance to see a bit of the region, try some new tastes, and learn a little about the place you’re visiting.

  1. Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires was once known as the “Paris of the South”.  While it might not be so glamorous today, it’s a great stopping off point for student backpackers that no trip to Argentina would be complete without.  The city is a true melting pot of cultures, and features some great night life, amazing restaurants, and a friendly culture.  If you’re not a fan of traditional night clubs, you may still enjoy paying a visit to one of the many tango clubs in the city.

  1. The Andes Mountains

Not only are the Andes Mountains a breath-taking site, but they’re great fun for anyone who enjoys climbing or hiking.  There are lots of guided tours on offer, with routes to suit all fitness levels.  Take a camera; the views of the mountains and the glaciers are amazing.

  1. Patagonia

Head to the coast and you’ll get to walk amongst the penguins and play with the sea lions.  Large parts of the coast are relatively untouched, so if you’re going for a long walk be sure to bring plenty to drink – getting dehydrated miles from the nearest store is not a pleasant experience!

  1. Recoleta Cemetary

For a spooky (and free) experience, head to the Recoleta Cemetary, where each corpse is housed in an elaborate neo-classical mausoleum.  There are several famous citizens to look at, including cultural icon Eva Peron.

  1. Eat Like a Gaucho

Pay a visit to La Cholita in Buenos Aires and enjoy a true gaucho style meal which includes steak, ribs, chicken, sausage, and more.  If you’re a vegetarian, you can find meat free Empanadas at La Gauchita.  Eating out is surprisingly inexpensive in Argentina.
