Become That Trendy Friend

*Collaborative post.

Everyone has a trendy friend. The one that could literally put on a bin bag and pull it off. Well, that might have been a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point. When you’re not that trendy friend, you honestly do feel like you can’t put an outfit together without going through a whole evening of stress. But there’s one big key to this here. A lot of it comes from self confidence, and the image you build up of yourself.

You’ve got that one trendy friend, because they’ve always been into their fashion and showing it off. So no matter what they wear, you can’t help but feel like they look amazing. But you could be the same, as long as you know what’s on trend at the minute, and that you have a little self confidence. But self confidence is one of the biggest things that people seem to lack, and that’s where it becomes so hard to find something that you think suits you, because nothing seems to suit you in your own mind. So this article is going to be all about making you that trendy friend.

We’re going to give you some tips to make you more self confident, show you what’s on trend at the minute, and throw in a bit of a beauty tip to help make you feel amazing! Keep on reading to find out more…

Self Confidence Tips

So, before you think about what clothes you’re going to wear, and what might suit you, you’re going to have to address some of these insecurities that you have. It’s so bad that so many of us are walking around right now, thinking about what people might think about us. Or how we start our day by looking in the mirror, and wondering why we were made the way we are. It’s crazy to think this, because every human is different. Every single person has a flaw that they hate, yet due to social media and all of the influencers who look perfect on there, we’re made to believe we shouldn’t have a flaw at all. But the truth is, if you were to see half of the people up close, you wouldn’t be thinking what you are now.

Instagram is so fake and filtered. So rather than starting your day by looking in the mirror and thinking eurgh, start it by thinking about how beautiful you are in your own way. If you have that confidence to carry around with you, you’re already so much more attractive than half of the people you see on Instagram and other social media platforms! If you do feel like you have something that you really want to work on, perhaps you really want to tone up for the summer, then dig deep and find the motivation to do it. We’re so good as humans at wanting a better figure, better hair, or better anything, but procrastinating around the subject!

 

The Top Summer Fashion Trends

Summer fashion is the best kind of fashion. Some of you might disagree with this and prefer all of the warm winter wear, but we can’t help but feel that summer fashion brings out a different side of people.  But if you want to be that trendy friend, you’re going to need some top trend tips. Tip number one, summer dresses are always going to be in. There’s nothing better than going out on a hot summer’s day, with your summer dress on, and just loving life. They’re so easy to accessorise with, and the best part is it goes so well with trainers.

Nike air force 1’s are really on trend at the minute, and there’s so many different styles that you could go for. You can see more nike air force 1 on the internet than you would in the shop, so get browsing! A nice simple summer dress, some sunglasses, and a little bag is all that’s needed to complete that trendy look. Simple and effortless is the way forward this summer!

What I look for when booking a hotel for a holiday

*Collaborative post.

I like to pay extra attention when booking a hotel for a holiday. The last thing I need is to discover the hotel does not suit my needs after checking in.  That would be a holiday from hell. That is why I like to research the hotel we intend to stay especially now that I have kids. When it comes to hotels, I like them luxurious and comfortable. I want a home away from home. The hotel needs to feel like a hotel. It needs to look and feel better than my home, after all it is a holiday and should feel like one.

Here are some of the things I look out for when booking a hotel for holiday –

 

Hotel Facilities

I always check the hotel facilities before booking a hotel. It is important to check the facilities you need are available before booking a hotel. I like to have an amazing room, room service, gym facilities, swimming pool, spa, restaurants and concierge. Room service is so important because sometimes we are just to tired or lazy to go down to the restaurant. So I like to have the option of eating in.

Having a spa in the hotel is also vert important. I like to sneak in a massage whilst on holiday. Having a massage with M is always on the cards too! We have been busy visiting cities in England this year. So far we have explored Essex, London, Birmingham and Blackpool this year, and we have many more cities to strike off our travel bucket list. Cornwall and Yorkshire are on our travel list. We are hoping to visit the both cities soon. I have my eye on a couples spa break in Yorkshire and I can’t wait for that to happen.

 

Location

The hotel location is very important. I like to stay in a decent area and I like the hotel to be reasonably close to the tourist attractions we will be visiting. Being fairly close to the airport is also important. I don’t like to spend hours commuting to and from the airport, so the closer the better really. However, the more central a hotel the more expensive it is, but it is a price we are willing to pay.

Reviews

I make sure I read the hotel reviews online before booking. I like to read the good and bad comments to see if the hotel would suit our needs. The reviews with real pictures are also very useful. I don’t pay too much attention to the photoshopped pictures on the hotel’s websites. Sometimes, the pictures look nothing like the rooms in real life. I also check the hotel rating as that is another way of checking the quality of the hotel. The hotels we like to go for usually have a 4 or 5 star rating, especially when we go abroad.

 

Luggage Storage

Hotels with luggage storage are amazing. We like to make use of the luggage storage option when we have an evening or night flight. Sitting around in the airport for hours with kids is not wise. We rather explore the city for a few more hours after checking out so the luggage storage option is very important.

 

Free WIFI

I work from home and pretty much anywhere, so having free wifi is so important, especially when we go abroad. Free WIFI is an essential I won’t stay in a hotel where I have to pay for an internet connection. It is shocking that we still have many hotels charging expensive fees for WIFI.

Fighting Hay Fever With A Dehumidifier

*Affiliate link.

I have had Hay Fever every summer for the last 3 years. If you have been reading Fashion and Style Policer for some years, you would know all about my summer health issues. I am still not completely sure what triggers my allergy but I have prescribed medicine I now take for it, which has been helpful. The over the counter hay fever medicines do nothing for me. My Hay Fever can get really intense, so I had to get more effective medication for it.

I start to take my medication just before summer so it works better. I did that this year and the first few weeks were blissful. But these past few days have been very hard. My Hay Fever is really messing with my sinuses and has left me feeling very poorly.

I have had many articles and tried many different ways to relieve these symptoms but not really had much luck. It has been so bad that it has started to affect my sleep which sucks. I am proper grumpy when I don’t get enough sleep, so these past few days, I have had the zombie feeling. Which is why I ordered a Dehumidifier. I read somewhere that Dehumidifiers can relieve Hay Fever symptoms. So I quickly placed an order for the DIMPLEX Forte Dehumidifier. I have used it for some days now and I can say it has relieved my Hay Fever. I sleep a lot better with this Dehumidifier on. It is really getting rid of unwanted moisture in my home, and I am thankful a product like this exist. It is great to be able to keep my home at a comfortable humidity level.

DIMPLEX Forte Dehumidifier

This Dehumidifier reduces moisture content in the air. It is movable with wheels and light enough to carry or wheel from room to room. I have had it in various rooms in our house already, and it is really working hard to get rid of unwanted moisture in our home. It is great for anyone that suffers from airborne allergies such as asthma and hay fever. Also, minimising the moisture content in the house prevents excessive humidity in the air which can prevent damp forming.

I love this DIMPLEX Forte Dehumidifier so much that I blogged about it. You can watch the new video on our YouTube Channel below.
