Father’s Day – The Gift of Game

Father’s Day is almost here for us in the UK (Sunday June 18), and that means more gifts buying. I am yet to get Father’s Day gifts sorted, but I am on it. I should hopefully get the gifts in the next few days. I have been snooping around on various blogs and websites for gift ideas, so I have a few gifts in mind already, but I am still undecided.

I am also undecided on how we should spend the day. When it comes to Father’s Day or Mother’s Day, I prefer the gift of an experience. We parents spend our money, time and energy caring for the little ones, so having a scheduled me time is usually the best gift ever!

I have a few ideas for a fun-filled Father’s Day, for the game lovers. These activities would make the day even more special. Here they are  –

Playing Golf

The golf lovers would enjoy a good game of golf to unwind. Personalised golf balls and accessories would also be great unique gifts to accompany a good game of golf for the golf crazy daddies.

Bingo Games

For the Bingo playing fans, an afternoon playing Bingo games could be a fab gift idea. There are many different online games around these days, which means there is surely a game to tickle the fancy on an online game fanatic. William Hill review from Boomtown Bingo explains some promotions and sign up offers currently running on the William Hill website, so do have a look for more information.

 

Watch a Football Match

Tickets to go watch their favourite team play footy is another great gift idea for Father’s Day. Many men are football freaks! The gift of football would definitely put a smile on the faces of many fathers.

Are you sorted for Father’s Day? Or you still undecided like me?

Fashion at the Grand National Ladies Day

We all know, Grand National Ladies Day is the biggest racing event in the racing calendar, we hear all about it on the news and all. However, for fashionistas, it is all about showing off the fancy hats, fascinators, and frocks, and the crème de la crème of your style. I love the very British fashion I spot at this glamorous event, I find it over the top and stylish, especially with the very gorgeous hats and dresses.

To ensure you don’t go to the event under dressed, you need to pay extra attention to your dress, and when it comes to picking the right dress, I will go for a below the knee or knee-length dress. I won’t bother with a floor length dress, because I feel it will get in the way, while moving around at the event. Personally, I will go for a lovely bright coloured dress with a stylish blazer, but you can go for a simple black or white dress if you prefer the monochrome look. The key to getting to getting the ‘races look’ right is to go formal. So no denim, flip-flops, slippers, denim, the whole look has to be very dressy and formal.

Here are some pieces I am currently loving at the moment –

SAO PAOLO PRINT SEREEN DRESS £169

 

Coast Dres Image

 

When it comes to Grand National Ladies Day, the dress you wear to the event is everything. It is the foundation of the whole outfit, so it has to be right. This stunning Coast dress will be a great piece to rock, it will definitely brighten up the races. I adore the fit and flare silhouette, and the subtle fresh floral print. This paired with a cream or sky blue blazer, and a cream hat, would look divine. This is a perfect dress for Ladies Day Grand National,  do you agree?

 

Dorothy Perkins Fascinator

 

I love the power of a pretty fascinator, it has the power to wake up any look, This gorgeous Dorothy Perkins fascinator, which is now on sale, will complete an outfit beautifully. I can picture this beauty, styled with a little black dress, and white heels. The monochrome look makes it a wardrobe must have for many fashionistas.

 

Carvela Kurt Geiger Lana high heel sandals £110 £59

Carvela Sandals

This Kurt Geiger Carvela sandals is not a smart choice to wear to the races because of the high heel, but when it comes to looking all glam, smart doesn’t matter. This shoe candy would look lovely paired with a dress like the piece above, and I am loving the amazing sales going on. What do you think?

 

I am looking forward to seeing the glitz and glamorous this April 2016 Grand National Ladies Day. It promises to be style packed as always, and I can’t wait to see what the outfits the ladies have on. I am always up for some style inspiration.
