Summer Clothes Haul!

20 Aug

Think the best thing with booking a late deal holiday is the cheap holiday clothes in shops. It also amazes me how in August the most hottest month in other countries and when most people go on holiday, the shops feel the need to change the trend to Autumn fashion! I always have this problem, finding good summer clothes in August! But this year I was lucky! SALES have arrived late! I found it easy this year to get great purchases for cheaper than what I paid for clothes in July! Below are some of my recent purchases!

If you’ve been reading my other posts you’ll understand that my ‘Summer Holiday’ this year wasn’t as good as I assumed it would be. My friend wanted to come to Ibiza with us, but at the time she didn’t have the funds for it, but now she does so we decided to book a holiday to MALIA, SAYYY UHHH AHH MALIA! for the first week in September as a final goodbye to a good summer.

Yesterday me and my friend, Hollie, took a trip to a shopping park and went to ‘Thomas Cook’ we knew the hotel we wanted, we even knew the price! Thomas Cook you let us down! epic fails! We first went in and got given an middle aged woman as soon as we said ‘Club 18-30’ she said she’d put us with somebody else more our age, which is understandable, but she put us with a girl our age, but the older woman would of been more help.

The woman we had didn’t understand that we weren’t going to pay over £250! We knew the holidays were cheaper as we looked online, she kept offering us £300 holidays, me and hollie were on a budget and we weren’t going to pay more than £250. She couldn’t even find the hotel we wanted, when I found it online, on their website, the morning before we went and this morning as well!  We got a quote from her, we wanted to shop around at other travel agents before making a final decision.  We read the quote and she put, extra baggage, extra flight meals etc on the quote! We’re not idiots.

We then went into Thomson, we were welcomed really nicely and even had a friendly discussion with the woman on the front desk, we were given somebody our age again and she found cheaper quotes for Malia. She then suggested if we’re looking for a cheap holiday that Kavos is much nicer and cheaper and has a better reputation than Malia, she showed us some pictures, the prices and we even all laughed and then me and Hollie decided last minute to book Kavos. The girl that served us, was really friendly and helpful, she even convinced Hollie to purchase travel insurance, I knew I could  get some online for a fiver!

So on the 2nd September 2013 I am going to Kavos! Staying in the Alexander Hotel on the beach front, if anybody has ever been to Kavos or stayed in that hotel please, please comment with some tips! I’m really excited! eeeep!

Keep Your Feet On The Ground, When Your Heads In The Clouds – How To Deal With Sore Feet

15 Aug

I am not good with dealing with pain, I can’t stand pain! and I always seem to get achy feet! I work part-time in fast food and have eight hour shifts where I don’t sit down once. Constantly standing up really hurts my feet, I get a sharp pain on the balls of my feet, but with my horrible experiences I have learnt little small ways with dealing with the pain which I am going to share with you!

1- Firstly prepare your feet! – It’s no good going to work or out without preparing your feet. If you know you have a long shift ahead of you, simply take a spare pair of socks and some different shoes to wear for travelling. Each shoe has a different feel on your foot, makes you walk differently or stand differently, a change with help your foot, socks will also refresh your feet and prevent excess sweating. Sometimes I think its best to put insoles in your shoes, you get get some cheap ones from ‘Poundland’ just for a £1! They may not be the best, but it’s still a little bit of extra cushion for your feet.

2- When getting home, bath your feet in freezing cold water for half an hour, then for another half an hour bath them in hot water, this get the muscles working and you’ll be able to withhold your feet for more hours in work. I don’t know the scientific reason behind this, but it really helps me!

3- MASSAGE! – get your boyfriend/girlfriend, mother or even your cat to massage your feet! use body lotion, it feels so good and it relaxes the muscles.

These tips below are also good for wearing heels on a night out!

– Avoid sitting down – you won’t get back up!

– NEVER, NEVER, NEVER take them off! – when were heels your feet WILL hurt, but never take your heels off, your feet will swell whilst wearing heels, when you take them off you’ll have to put them back on and when you put them back on they’ll hurt ten times more, basically because your feet have just simply swelled and the heels don’t fit.

-MOVE AROUND A LOT -never stand still, just move or dance!
