Fantastic Holiday Dress Ideas

Friday, 5 August 2016

Holidays are great, but deciding what you are going to wear can be a real pain. I cannot tell you how often I have ended up packing multiple times because of my inability to decide what to take.
Fortunately, I am getting better at packing, and am far more decisive than I used to be. I am also less forgetful.

What are you going to be doing?

For me the key to successful packing is quickly jotting down what I am planning to do while I am on holiday. Doing this allows me to make a list of clothes I will need for each activity.
Next, I factor in the weather. If I think it is going to be hot, I take mainly lightweight clothes, but always make sure I have something to wear just in case the sun does not come out. Doing this reduces the risk of me forgetting anything important.

Packing simply

It is also a good idea to pack simply. At the end of the day, you are on holiday, so just relax. You really do not need to look flawless.
To look good and stay comfortable in a sunny climate all you really need is a couple of women's summer dresses. Most are lightweight, which means you should not end up with overweight luggage.
Provided you fold them carefully then roll them up loosely, your dresses should not crease too badly. If they do, put them on a hanger and leave them on the back of the door when you take a hot shower. This usually makes the creases drop out.
I also pack a skirt and a pair of shorts as well, with a couple of my favourite tops. If I want more, I buy them at the resort.
Normally, I wear jeans to the airport, and a light jumper, so if it gets chilly I have something to wear. If the weather is bad for a few days, I might buy another pair of trousers, but normally this is not necessary.

Something for the beach

Another lesson I have learnt the hard way is to pack properly for the beach. In the past, I would just pack a couple of costumes and some sun cream. 

Now I always pack a hat and my own lightweight towel. Hotels do not like you taking their towels to the beach, and they will stop you doing it if they catch you, so it is better to take your own. Packing a hat and a light dress to shrug on when your skin has had enough of the sun will allow you to enjoy the beach for longer.

Use a packing list

I mentioned earlier that I was getting less forgetful. Unfortunately, this is not strictly true. The truth is that if I do not use a packing list, I still end up having to buy things at the resort. I guess that means I am actually just as forgetful as ever, but using a checklist ensures that I notice what I have missed before it is too late.
This site allows you to create a pack list that is tailored to the type of trip you are planning. It is easy to use, and a good way to make sure you do not forget anything. I hope that helps, and that you find packing for your next trip less of a hassle.

Panasonic SC-RB5 Bluetooth Speaker review

Sunday, 24 July 2016

It's an integral part of my life, it can transform your mood, the atmosphere of a party / room and even take you back to the best and worst parts of your life. Music has changed dramatically over the years from Vinyl to cassettes, to CDs to now where most people stream all their music online.

I tend to listen to the majority of my music through spotify on my phone which is fine if I want to listen solo but the speakers are no good for sharing music with friends, step forward the Panasonic SC-RB5

Weight: 0.5kg
Diameter: Less than 10cm
Height: Less than 6cm
Price: £79.99

This little beauty uses very clever technology called 'Resonance Bass' which basically means it vibrates through the base onto the surface it's sitting on thus amplifying both the bass and volume. It also changes the sound based on what you've placed it on

The device itself is ridiculously easy to set up and took me less than a minute to synch the bluetooth between the speaker and my iphone, I also love that you can connect numerous speakers together to further boost the sound.

The device is ultra sleek and cute with a black and silver theme with blue lighting detail. The bottom blue line actually flashes in time with your music which looks fab. With a range of around 10 meters and a battery life of up to 12 hours it's perfect for all those summer occasions from BBQ's to Beach parties just pop it in your bag and place on a solid surface once you're there

I think while the price is a little high, you're getting far superior quality when compared to others on the market especially as it's also splash proof with the resonance bass capability. It's built to last and has certainly got me blasting music out in the sunshine we've been enjoying
