We’re into June, which means summer is here and the time is right to start planning for the holidays. Ok, it’s England, thunder storms and heavy showers are forecast, but we’re British, we can plan for all eventualities can’t we. Let’s face it, we do get plenty of practice. I’m planning my summer holidays with Tesco Clubcard Summer Boost, so I can get as much for my money as possible!
When I’m planning for the summer holidays; whether it be for a trip abroad, a staycation or days out, I like to have a range of coordinating clothes. Things that are easy to pack, don’t crease easily and are comfortable to wear.
Comfy, lightweight trousers are a must for me. Whether I’m exploring new locations, going for a gentle stroll or den building in the woods, something practical is a must. These F&F Poplin Cropped Cargo Trousers are just perfect.
Should we actually get some nice weather this summer then vest tops are a great addition to any suitcase and can be worn over swimwear or under a lightweight cardi for cooler evenings.
These F&F Jersey Vests are a must for me, and take up no room at all in a case, so why not have 2!
As much as I’d love to dance the night away, my old knees just won’t cope with it these days. So comfy shoes are a must, as we’re always out walking. Something smart but practical and obviously in blue (this is me after all!). These F&F Brogue Slipper Pumps would be fine for both daytime and evening wear, again, I’m thinking of the space in my case.
When the sun is shining I’m always telling my son he needs to wear a sunhat and preferably UV protection sunglasses too. I certainly need them and like to lead by example with these F&F Cat Eye Sunglasses.
Now I do have a bit of a ‘thing’ for handbags and holidays are no exception. I don’t mind having a large bag full of family paraphernalia during the daytime, I obviously multi task as the family packhorse. But sometimes it’s just nice to have a small ‘me’ bag. A bag just big enough for a purse, phone and keys. This F&F Striped Woven Cross-Body Bag is just the ticket.
I’m a bit of a perfume find too, and always like to have a couple of choices when I’m on holiday, Eternity is a holiday favourite.
I’m always worrying about Monkey in the sunshine and protecting his delicate skin. I’m lucky, that he’s always been fine with wearing suntan lotion and this Ambre Solaire Resisto Colour Spray is factor 50 and easy for him to apply himself. Leaving me with one less thing to stress about!
Keeping the kids amused during the holidays can be stressful too can’t it. I’ve found the perfect accessory for my Monkey. This Summit Adventures LED Animal Headlight Torch was made with him in mind. Whether we’re den building, camping in the back garden or going on a bear hunt, this will certainly entertain him, and ease my stress levels. It even comes with batteries!
Finally, all good holidays have to involve a picnic at some point don’t they. This easy to store and carry Family Fleece Picnic Blanket is ideal for summer adventures. It’s got a weatherproof lining too which is always a bonus.
So that’s my summer sorted – no stress, and all available with the Clubcard Boost, for extra savings.
