Maya’s Life and Travels is a lifestyle, beauty, fashion and travel blog founded in December 2020. I post travel posts about the UAE, study tips, weekly affirmations, beauty posts, lifestyle posts and some helpful life tips. I created Maya’s Life and Travels because I have always had a passion for beauty, fashion, travelling and writing and I really wanted to share it with the world. Some of my goals for this blog is to make it well known, reach 1k followers or more and to do some collaboration with brands.

What is the greatest risk you have ever taken?

Well to be honest I actually don’t know because I have taken so many risks in my life that I just can’t count!

What period would you travel to if you were given a time machine?

I would travel to the Islamic Golden age because that’s when the Islamic Empire grew as well as Islam. During the time, men and women of different cultures worked together to build inventions as well as discoveries that changed our world. One amazing invention of the Islamic Golden Age was when Fatima Al Fihri founded the world’s oldest university 1,150 years ago in Fez, Morocco. Another huge part of the Islamic Golden Age is when Algebra was founded by Al Khwarizmi. He also wrote a book about it called Al Jabr wal Muqabala which introduced Algebra which load and loads of us use today.

What is one thing that you absolutely hate about WordPress?

I just hate the updates because they take away lots of amazing things sometimes and replace them.

What makes your day better?

Listening to music makes my day better because it calms me down when I am sad and it just makes me feel better.

  1. Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I definitely enjoyed reading it, you happen to be a great author.I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and will eventually come back from now on. I want to encourage yourself to continue your great posts, have a nice morning!


  2. Congrats on the nomination, I love award posts (perhaps that’s because I’m a little bit nosey haha)! I also hate the updates sometimes, I so can’t get along with the new block editor xx

  3. Congratulations for the nomination & thanks for nominating me! ❤ I agree that one of the most annoying things about wordpress is the updates. For example, I'm not sure if it's just me but my wordpress editor isn't working as well as it used to and I'm wondering if that is due to an update…


    1. Thanks Helen, your welcome! Same it isn’t working for me at all and sometimes the media library keeps changing for me when I upload images for blog posts and it then goes back to normal. Very weird.
