How To Have A Holiday At Home (Staycation)

It's March.  You're totally over the cold weather now and desperately in need of a break except you're still skint from Christmas.  So what are you supposed to do?!  Have a Staycation that's what!  You could take a whole week off work or you could do it over a weekend if you're tight on holiday.  Here are some little ideas of what you can do on your Holiday At Home.


This might seem like a chore to some people but I know others love getting creative and sometimes it's those little job you don't have time to do over a weekend so why not take a week off and tackle a little bit each day.  You'll be amazed at how much you've done by the end of the week!

Stay In Bed

Yep, stay in bed the whole weekend or entire week if you want!  Get some good reading material, your laptop, Netflix and snacks and just relax.  Make sure you make the bed nice and cosy.  This is especially a great idea during the winter months.


Relax in the bath, try out all your favourite products and have a mini spa day/weekend.  You can see more of my ways to relax tips here.


If you're lucky enough to have a garden and nice weather then have a little BBQ and eat outside, there's nothing quite like it.  Oh and don't forget a nice refreshing drink to wash it down, preferably alcoholic ;)


Buy flowers or pick them from the garden and make a nice arrangement indoor.  Or plant some new ones for the summer.  Spring is nearly here after all!

Have a Picnic

This is probably my favourite one to do and you don't even need a garden, you can just go to your local park and feed the leftovers to the ducks :)

Cocktail Class

Have your own cocktail class at home and experiment with recipes you've always wanted to try.  This is great for indoors or outdoors and especially sharing with friends!

Game Night

Get all your favourite board games or computer games out and get your game face on.

Camp Fire

Have a camp fire in your garden, invite friends over and make smores.  You can still do this in the winter because the fire will keep you warm or just grab a few blankets :)

Would you take a staycation?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
