Is 2013 the year of the blonde?
With Anne Hathaway recently showing off her new blonde hairstyle, is it now time for you to have a look trying out a little light in your life? Whether you go for a short cut, or a longer waves, platinum blonde to buttery blonde, all is worth a look.
With the holiday season upon us, and many of us due to travel, I thought I would compare these popular atomisers. Which one will win?

I recently got my hands on a perfume atomizer called Travalo. It’s a practical tool for women who buy full-sized perfume bottles and would like to carry it in smaller containers that could easily fit in their purse or kikay kit. I particularly like the rollerball because it looks sleeker…
- Book early and plan out what you really want to see. Make sure the airfares, hotels, activities, meals are all organised. Once this is done you can just glide from one thing to another without ever having to think about what you want to do next.
- Learn a bit of the local language. You will be amazed by how far a few key phrases will get you, and people always like the fact that you’ve made the effort. Try to learn “Thank You”, “Sorry”, “Yes”, “No”, “Excuse me”, “How much does this cost”, “Where is the bathroom?” & “Do you have WiFi?”
- Always have a little travel bag packed and ready to go. Put your absolute essentials into it (including your Travalo of course) and then all you need to do is do a quick check and you know you have everything.
- Back up all your travel info to a cloud-based system. This makes it nice and easy to find your insurance, flight times, itinerary, key contacts etc. You might want to try a mobile wallet (Passbook for iphone or Lemon for android)
- Get a city guide on your phone. Tripadvisor & Triposo do brilliant guides that will help point you to the nearest restaurant, pub, club, tourist attraction, bus station, etc. Best thing is they are offline, so you download them onto your phone before you go and then you can use them whenever you want without having to worry about data costs.
- Plan extra time into your travelling. Give yourself plenty of time to get to the airport and then just relax a bit when you are there (have a coffee, read a book, try those massage things they have at some airports). You will be amazed how much better you feel compared to running around like a headless chicken.
- While on a plane, eat well, stay hydrated, and if possible try to get some sleep. Sometime listening to music can help drown out the external noise a bit and help relax you.
- There is never a good reason to go into McDonalds or Starbucks when you are on holiday. There is always a better local café/restaurant nearby, you just need to find it and those offline phone apps are brilliant for this.
- When you are there, try travelling on public transport rather than hiring a car. Getting lost, not knowing the local road signs, and driving on different sides of the road are all very stressful. A little planning on where you want to go and then hopping on a bus or train will generally get you where you want to go, and often is cheaper and easier.
- If you can, turn off the tech. Nothing can ruin your relax time like reading work emails, so make sure people are prepared for your absence and then ignore them for your holiday. You don’t need to unplug entirely, just set aside a little time each day to check up on things.
