Patchouli essential oil is calming, earthy, and spicy. Diffuse it by itself to promote a peaceful, centered state of well-being, or get creative and make your own blends. Its familiar scent acts as the perfect “base note” for other essential oils, such as lavender, orange, and lemongrass. For topical use, dilute with a carrier oil.

4 Things To Look Forward To Ahead Of A Family Holiday In Summer 2021

*Collaborative post.

After being locked indoors for the best part of a year owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, the prospect of some sunshine and a beach holiday this summer has never been more appealing. If you’re looking to take your family away on vacation in 2021 when restrictions ease, then here are four exciting things to look forward to so that you can start feeling ready for your holiday!

  1. Meeting New People

When you finally get to go away, one of the best things about a foreign holiday is meeting new people from different countries and cultures. So, why not preserve those travel memories by keeping up with those that you’ve met while abroad on a family vacation? This could result in making life-time friendships or even result in a new pen pal. Sending cards, gifts or photos in the post is a great way to remain in touch. For example, sending flowers to Germany or any other European country couldn’t be easier online with so many websites offering the service at very attractive prices.

  1. Guaranteed Sunshine

We’ve had a bit of a bleak winter this year, with long cold spells and plenty of rain only dampening our moods further, so the prospect of a summer break bursting with guaranteed sunshine is exactly what’s in order! If you’ve been longing for a tan, then this is your chance to get on the sun beds and give yourself that gorgeous golden glow that you’ve been longing for. Just don’t forget your suncream – and make sure you apply plenty on the kids too! Giving them a cap and reminding them to drink plenty of water will help them to avoid heatstroke too. The last thing you want is a sick child on holiday!

  1. Discovering Somewhere New

Months of being locked away in our homes have made many of us sick of the sight of our own four walls. Therefore, a family vacation gives you all the chance to discover somewhere new and enjoy the feeling of being away from home for the first time in a long time. Travel is one of life’s most fulfilling experiences so don’t spend the fortnight sat by the pool – get out there and explore an entirely new country, city or culture to that of your own! Why not pick up a pocket travel guide before your trip so that you can get to grips with your vacation destination and really make the most of the holiday?

  1. Quality Time Together

While you and your family have probably spent a lot more time together than you would have previously over the past twelve months, a holiday abroad allows you to enjoy some quality family time that you’ve probably been lacking recently. There’s only so much enjoyment that can come from constantly working from home whilst also trying to look after your kids. A vacation rids of all of that and gives you some time away from the office, allowing you to enjoy quality family time together with your partner and children.

 

Dining in Dubai

*Collaborative post.

I have visited Dubai a few times and I am looking forward to visiting again at some point in the future when the restrictions have all been lifted. Dubai is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. I love everything about the Dubai. It is a great travel destination for the family. There are many things to do with the kids as a family and as a couple as well. We always have a good time whenever we visit The UAE. When it comes to dining in Dubai, there are loads of options. We usually like trying out different types of restaurants, so we do Chinese, Italian, Japanese and the likes. It is always a great idea to try out international buffer restaurants so you have the opportunity to try out different cuisines in one go.

Dining in Dubai

If you are planning to visit Dubai at some point like I am and want some information on great restaurants to dine in, you are in luck! Here are some great dining options in Dubai –

Marina Social

If you love British Mediterranean cuisines in a lively and cosy restaurant, you would love to dine in Marina Social. You can enjoy brunch, lunch and dinner here. There are also vegan and vegetarian options which is so important for people like myself. The delicious menu is by the Michelin-starred British chef Jason Atheron. Some of the menu favourites are scallop ceviche, cucumber, apple, jalapeño, smoked almonds and sourdough pizzas.

Urban Lounge

The Urban Lounge at The intercontinental is another great restaurant to dine in Dubai. The international cuisines are mouth watering and there is pretty a dish for everyone. It is a late night dining restaurant so probably better for couples only. You can read more about this restaurant and other restaurants in Dubai on the Squaremeal website.

Pierchic

I love the sound of this multi-award-wining restaurant. The ambience is cool, calm and glamorous, which sounds very relaxing. Just the right sort of environment I need in a restaurant. It is a great for a luxurious brunch, lunch or dinner. The view from the restaurant is amazing with perfect blue sunny skies and the Jumeirah’s private pier.

La Serre

The glamorous La Serre restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Dubai. It is great for those after French delicacies. I love the fact that is open for all day dining, so breakfast, lunch and dinner is sorted with the La Serre. Also, this restaurant is very child friendly, which is a massive plus for families travelling with young children. Going out to eat with children can be tricky so it is always nice to know there are child friendly restaurants available to help parents feel welcomed. If you like the sound of a French inspired menu, you will love La Serre restaurant.
