Happy Valentine’s Day!

I am back on this day of sharing love to share something I love with you all, and that’s CHEAP flights! I tell everyone that wants to travel at an affordable cost to follow different pages that share flight deals, but I also make it my job to post some of the best deals that I see. This week in my feeds I spotted some bomb deals, internationally and domestic including:

If you’re really down for an adventure you can grab the flights to Fort Lauderdale/Miami and a flight to Belize making it a multi-stop vacation. Now that sounds fun! Are you down for some fun in the sun? Spring Break and the Summer is approaching. Plan a grand vacation at an affordable cost before it’s too late. Comment below if you’re GRABBING any of these flights or PASSING!



It’s been weeks since I’ve posted a video, but I am happy to be back! I have a few old videos to post, so within the next week, I’ll be consistently posting! Be sure to comment like and subscribe to my youtube channel!


WAIT! Please stop what you’re doing and book one of these flights!!! If I had the time and wasn’t in school I’d be on my way to Europe! Often times we get caught up in the cliche that traveling is expensive, but the key to traveling is booking flights when there is a cheap deal like this one circulating different travel blogs. From the different blogs I come across, often times travelers speak about how they book flights when there are amazing deals going on, and when there are glitches on different websites. We literally have to stop snoozing on deals and see the world! I understand having responsibilities pull us back, but post-grad please believe I will definitely take advantage of all the deals.

Okay, but here is a fair WARNING. Like many airlines WOW Air is flawed. While abroad I flew from London to Keflavik and from Keflavik back to Barcelona. The flying process was like normal. However, the thing that I didn’t like about WOW Air is their baggage system. The only bag you are allowed for free is a personal bag such as a purse or a backpack, a bag small enough to fit under the seat in front of you. If you are traveling with a carry-on, it must be a certain size, and you have to pay for it. Depending on where you are flying from and flying to determines the cost of the extra baggage.

Comment below how you all feel about posts like these! Are you guys booking these flights or what? Do you have things holding you back? Maybe my mantra will help. Book now, worry later!


For the most part I’ve blogged about a variety of things; however, I want to bring the focus back to one of the topics I want to emphasize more, Travel! Here are some of the deals I came across this week that are stealsssss!

I love following travel pages because I get to see all the cheap flight deals and picture of other’s vacations. I’ll be sure to post flight deals that I feel are relevant to my viewers. With this blog post I decided to focus on cheap domestic flights, but I’ll be sure to also post inexpensive international flight deals!

Views from Duomo di Milano

During my travels in Europe, one of my favorite things were capturing pictures in fun outfits in front of places I used to google. Check out this edgy chic look in front of the famous Duomo di Milano.

The Paris Vlog

Today’s vlog is from my time spent in Paris, France. This is definitely one of my favorites out of the bunch. While abroad I turned the bittersweet age of 21 and got the chance to celebrate in Paris! To have the chance to travel through Europe to so many different countries and cites by the age of 21 was a blessing. Never would I have expected to accomplished such a thing, so this was definitely a birthday for the books! I won’t go into details about this trip because honestly everything I would need to say is captured in the vlog. I hope you all enjoy the vlog! Comment, like, and subscribe!



The First Vlog

I’ve decided to dedicate today’s blog post to the release of my youtube channel! During my time abroad I recorded my friends and I travel through Europe! Watching these vlogs makes me so happy.  I’m eternally grateful that I was able to travel with my friends and record our fun, jokes, and laughs. Be sure to check out my blog by clicking “The Vlog” on my sidebar and it will direct you to my youtube channel. Be advised that I will be posting these vlogs either weekly or bi-weekly, so please be on the lookout! Being that now I am so far removed from being abroad I hope that I could recall as much information as possible so that I can give insight on everywhere I’ve visited and helped guide others through their travels.

The First Vlog!

Our first stop was Berlin, Germany, but at that time I was still shopping around for the perfect camera. And that brings me to my London vlog. To be honest, this video is not my best vlog. The camera I had at the time was trash, as a result, this vlog is trash. LOL. The first vlog was in London! My first trip to London ended fast, however it was well worth it. The first stop we made was some sightseeing in Camden Town, where we shopped around. We then ended up at Maxwell’s Bar and Grill. If ever in London and want good food I would definitely suggest this place. Being in Europe Maxwell’s was the closest thing I ate similar to American food. I enjoyed the food so much that I returned the second time I visited London. The barbeque ribs and wings were great! And listen, the baked macaroni and cheese….. the baked macaroni and cheese was surprisingly verrry good (I think this was the start of my macaroni and cheese obsession).

Later that night, we attended Drake’s Boy Meets World Tour. Drake swears the UK is his second home, so of course, he was DTM, but he’s a dope performer. #TeamMeek. No, seriously the setup was fire! We definitely enjoyed ourselves.

We ended our night by going to the very well-known, Duck & Waffle. Duck & Waffle is a 24-hour restaurant in which I highly recommended. I mean how often do you eat duck, a sunny side up egg, and a waffle? AND it’s 24 hours! There were about 3 floors with a DJ each floor (this was early February, so my memory is really faded so I could be making this up lol) but the DJ’s played really urban hip music. Not to mention this is a pretty aesthetically pleasing place. I mean look at my picture above. I KNOW I KNOW it’s hard looking pass my highlight.


I can finally say go comment, like, and subscribe to my youtube channel!


The First Blog Post

The Jiara, Barcelona, Park GuellHi, all! Welcome welcome welcome to my blog! My name is Jiara, and I am more than excited to be here actually typing my first blog post! The thought of creating a blog has been something heavy on my mind, but I’ve finally made my way to a platform! Let’s be honest for a second, if creating a blog wasn’t a class assignment I still might have put my blog on hold. It’s the perfectionist in me. I want to ensure I deliver great content to my audience! As my first blog post, I wanted to formally introduce myself and explain why I am here. My blog will be a lifestyle blog with a great focus on beauty, travel, and fashion! My interest in creating a blog mainly started when I was abroad Spring ’17. Originally I wanted to create a travel blog and vlog (vlog coming soon), but I feel as though I have a wild array of interests that I’ll love to blog about! While abroad I discovered my passion for traveling, and how I want to make a positive impact on others’ view of traveling, specifically targeting those in the black community. Prepare for more organized thoughts and the creation of Jiara the blogger! Follow me as a twenty-one-year-old unapologetic Black girl from the South side of Chicago living and loving life.
