    10 Things to Do in Washington D.C.

    Washington D.C. is such a beautiful place to visit. I had been wanting to visit it again ever since I visited at 13 years old. I remembered the weather and the clean streets.

    New Year, New Resolutions

    The approach of a new year can either create a lot of pressure or take some off. It creates more pressure in the sense that we want to better ourselves for a better future. Then it takes off the pressure by giving us a chance to start again. And the first step to starting again is making a resolution. There is importance in resolutions cause they make things happen. I remember when I was nine and I would list all of the things I visualized myself doing. Out of a list of nine, I can proudly say I completed five. Another point about resolutions is that, after a while, they…

    How to Shop A Moroccan Souk

    Here at The Style Spread, we just love to go shopping. We love it even more when it’s abroad. You get unique items that you probably wouldn’t have been able to get in your local boutique. In Morocco, these unique items are found at the Moroccan souks.  The souk is basically a market where different things are sold. You can get tea sets, scarves, leather goods, and even spices. We think it’s one of the most exciting parts of visiting Morocco. The only part that is not so exciting is the haggling that has to be done. But don’t worry, we are going to show you how to effectively shop the souk…

    Learn French Slang with 5 Terms

    They say that you’ve become fluent in a language when you know how to speak slang. This isn’t always true since nowadays you can just google the terms or come to a site like this. However, learning slang terminology does make you seem more aware and knowledgable in regards to travel and language. Learning a new term shows that you did your homework. After all, slang terminology tends to change rather quickly. You don’t want to use slang from the 90’s in 2017 as you may be perceived as outdated. Below are five modern French slang phrases (including cuss words) that will make you appear well versed and up to…

    La Maison Arabe

    This past week was an amazing time that I would always cherish in my memory. I went on a trip to Paris and then to Marrakech and then to Meknes. It was whirlwind of events but worth every second. Let me start off by saying that Morocco has been my dream place since I was 13. It’s something about the culture that attracts me. I was lucky enough to have this dream become a reality and even luckier I will be when I go for a second time.

    The Reason Why Airlines Overbook

    Imagine stepping up to the check-in counter, just to hear the agent say, “I’m sorry to inform you but I cannot assign you a seat due to there not being enough seats available; the flight is overbooked. You will have to wait until the end of the flight to determine whether you will be able to fly out today.” This is the worst case scenario imaginable! Even though this hasn’t happened to me personally, as a former check-in agent, I’ve delivered the bad news more than a couple times. And the reactions I encountered were of pure disappointment and anger. What do you mean I’m not flying? I booked my seats three…

    Creating A Traveler’s Notebook

    What exactly is a traveler’s notebook? It’s the original notebook in which we used to document our travels and adventures. This form of documenting has become stagnant since social media sites and the blogosphere set off. But who said we can’t bring it back right? The Midori Traveler’s Notebook focuses on just that. To document and record your experiences in a leather notebook brings back a nostalgia that has been lost. Not only that but customizing inserts and accessories, for the Midori, makes documenting all the more fun.

    Tea & Morocco

    Having an annoying cold and working at the same time is a big no-no. I had to work from home, this past weekend, to prevent an office annoyance from my sniffling and sneezing. Whenever I feel under the weather, I have a list of must-haves. I definitely need my Ricola cough drops, in Honey-Herb preferably. Even if I don’t have a cough, I need the Ricola to moisturize my throat. I prefer Ricola to other brands because it doesn’t irritate my throat with a strong menthol taste. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and menthol.
