More than Magaluf: Planning a Perfect Getaway With Friends

Now, there’s something to be said for keeping things old school and making your getaway about nothing more than drinking cocktails and lapping up the sun! However, it’s also true that there’ll come a time when you outgrow this type of holiday and want something more. The good news is that though you’ve said goodbye to this type of adventure, there’s plenty of others waiting to be enjoyed! Below, we take a look at how to plan the perfect holiday with your closest friends.

Pick Your Timing

It used to be so easy when we were younger. Nobody ever had anywhere to be! But then real life begins, and all of a sudden people have jobs, relationships, and maybe even children that need to be prioritised. As such, you’ll need to put some time into when exactly you’ll be going away. It’s best to give as much notice as possible. Nobody can say no if it’s scheduled for months and months into the future! It’ll give them time to book the time off work, smooth things over with their partners, and so on.

Choose an Activity or Theme

So you’ve already decided that you want to do more than just lie on the beach for a week. The question is, what do you do instead? A good idea is to pick an activity, and then build your adventure around that. If you’ve never been on a skiing holiday before, then take a look at Andorra ski holidays. Skiing is a super fun activity, and it’s even more enjoyable when you’re with friends! And then there’s the whole apres-ski business, which basically means having a few drinks and reliving the day's highlights. Sounds good, right? Alternatively, you could also pick a city theme. If you normally visit beach destinations, then you’ll love all going to shows, out to fancy restaurants, and so on.

Getting Organised

There’s a lot to organised no matter what holiday you’re going on, but it’s all the more straightforward if everyone pulls their weight! Assign each in your group something to take care of. For example, one person could be in charge of getting to and from the airport; another could research where to eat each night, and so on. Everyone will have a share of responsibility, but not so much that they become overwhelmed.

Time to Reconnect

While you’ll be excited to explore your chosen destination and do all the fun things that it provides, it’s worth remembering why you’re going away: to enjoy spending time as a group! Try to avoid cramming your days too full with events and attractions to attend. When you’re travelling with friends, some of the best moments are the simple ones, such as when you’re all sitting around the breakfast table. You’ll miss out on these moments if you’ve planned for everyone to be up and out by 8 am each morning!

Finally, remember to go with the flow. As long as everyone’s having a good time, it won’t matter what else is happening!

Low Confidence? Here’s How You Could Look and Feel Great Starting Today

There are a lot of people out there who struggle with their body image and they also struggle with their self-confidence as well. This can lead to a spiral of depression and it can also lead to feelings of low self-worth and negative feelings whenever a mirror is present. If you are one of those people and you want to break the habit, or if you want to start feeling as beautiful as you really are, then that’s more than possible and you could start changing things for the better.

Correct your Posture

Your brain is trying to connect with the rest of the body to find out how you are feeling. When you stand up straight and confident, your brain will automatically receive signals that imply you feel good. When you slouch, have a bad posture and lean wherever possible, your brain will receive signals that will make you feel low and unconfident. This is scientifically proven, and although you might not feel better right away, this can make a real difference over time. You’ll also find that when you stand tall, you feel better about yourself and you’ll also appear to be slimmer as well. This is a great way for you to really do away with the body issues that you have.








Try Going to the Salon

If you want to feel an instant boost of confidence, why not take a trip to the salon? Think about getting your hair done or even your eyebrows. You may even want to consider laser hair removal as well because this is a great way for you to get rid of any hair you may find unsightly or anything that is lowering your body confidence. There are plenty of laser hair removal experts out there who can give you the support that you need and they can even guide you through the whole process as well, so you can come out feeling more confident and better about yourself. You could even try a new hairstyle or even get your nails done. You deserve to be pampered and you have every right to go out there and treat yourself.


Just Observe

When you look in the mirror, don’t say ugly things to yourself. A lot of people think that their friends and family are all looking great, but somehow they can’t apply that same thought process to themselves. If you find that you look in the mirror at a scar you got years ago, and think that it looks ugly then try and change this thought process. Think about it, when you look at your friend or even a family member, do you look at a scar they have and think it looks ugly? Probably not, so this is just your brain trying to project a negative self-body image onto yourself

when it’s not actually required. Don’t let this happen, and know that every negative thought that you have about yourself is completely unfounded. Know that you look great and that you deserve to feel great as well.

Reconnecting Relationships: 4 Bedazzling Ways to Hang Out With Your Bestie

We all have hectic schedules and sometimes life gets in the way of us spending time with the people we love. Whether you’ve been swamped at work or have been keeping quiet on the social scene it is always a good idea to reconnect with your friends whenever you get the chance. It doesn’t have to be pricey or hugely time consuming either; just a fun activity to get you back up to speed with each other’s lives. Pick up the phone to your best friends, sister or work colleague and treat yourselves to the ultimate catch up.
1.Brilliant Bars
We all love to let our hair down after a stressful week and what better way than heading to a local watering hole to catch up with your best friend. Places like Bunga Bunga do special deals for mid-week drinks, so it is an inexpensive option to meet after a long day at work. Just a couple of mojitos into the night and you’ll wonder why you hadn’t caught up sooner. This is your chance to let loose after being cooped up in the office all day, so take full advantage of the evening and dance your troubles away.

2. Sumptuous Spas
Tense shoulders and chipped fingernails call for a spa day. Grab your bestie and treat yourselves to a relaxing break at the local beauty salon or spa. Enjoy a dip in the pool and sweat out your troubles in the sauna. There is no better feeling than entering the week feeling recharged and refreshed, so do it in style with the ones closest to you.
3. Outdoor Excitement
We can often forget to move our bodies because we get so exhausted carrying out the everyday tasks of life. Running to get the bus to work, whizzing around the house with a duster and skipping around the kitchen trying to pull a dinner together doesn’t count as mindful exercise, so take a walk in the fresh air and get the gossip from your old friend. Getting some exercise together will make it more fun and you won’t even realize that you’re being healthy.

4. Foody Fun
We all have a deep-rooted love of food within ourselves that only our best friend can understand. You both enjoy the same cuisine and unashamedly undo your top buttons of your jeans whenever you go out to dinner together. Reconnect over a lovely fresh meal and try that restaurant that you’ve both been meaning to go to for so long. Try something new and have a giggle over a fine dining, candlelit meal.
Don’t neglect your loved ones for another minute and catch up in some of the best ways possible, put on your dancing shoes or cook your favourite foods together. You spend years of your life building friendships with awesome people so it’s really important that you try to maintain these whenever you can.  You’ll be glad you took the time out of your schedules to get yourselves back on track and you’ll have a whole load of fun along the way!

Stay Gorgeous

The Capital Cities Everyone Should Visit at Least Once

The world is your oyster, so why aren’t you already out there making the most of it and seeing its sights? It’s what you should be doing because you only live once. If you want to start traveling more and seeing more of the world, it makes sense to explore its metropolises. This is where you find life and vibrancy, and that’s what your travel experiences should be all about. To get started, you should learn more about the world’s best capital cities. You should visit each of these at least once.

Budapest

Nestled on the banks of the River Danube, Budapest is a hidden gem of a capital city that most people don't even consider heading to. That’s something that you should change by heading there at the next opportunity you have. You’ll discover something new at every turn as you explore the city. From the grandeur of the buildings to the beautiful gardens and open spaces; there’s so much to appreciate in Budapest.


Berlin

Berlin is one of those cities that offers a little bit of everything. The youth and music culture is second to none, so if that’s the kind of thing you’re interested in, it will definitely suit you. On top of that, Berlin is home to one of the world’s most acclaimed film festivals. If you’re more interested in history, Berlin has many stories to tell and they can be explored through its museums and galleries.

Tokyo

There’s nowhere on earth quite like Tokyo, and if you haven’t been there yet, you can’t quite grasp just how unique it is. You’ve certainly never experienced a city that’s comparable to it. The hustle and bustle of the city centre will take you aback. It’s the kind of place that you just have to throw yourself into it and get lost in everything that it has to offer you.


London

London is undoubtedly one of the greatest cities on earth, and it’s also a very sprawling capital unlike some of the others mentioned here. This means that the things it has to offer are pretty spread out, so you’ll need to make use of the tube to get around and see it all in an efficient way. Head to www.vlondoncity.co.uk if you want to learn more about some of the things you should be doing there.

Copenhagen

Copenhagen is home to some of the most beautiful neighbourhoods and architecture you’re likely to find in any European capital city. Nyhavn is one part of the city that you should most definitely head to if you want to see that side of things. Rosenborg Castle is another example of an attraction that displays the history of the city through its incredibly buildings.

Cities have a lot in common but they vary from place to place. And that’s something you’ll learn for yourself if you decide to take a trip around the world and visit its best capital cities for yourself. There are so many other fantastic ones with different things to offer as well, so see as many as you can.

Stay Gorgeous
