How To Have The Perfect Romantic Getaway!

If you're planning a romantic getaway with your partner, you'll want it to be perfect. Whether you've got kids at home or this is something you always do, making memories on a romantic getaway is one of the best things you'll do together. They always bring couples closer together and allow quality bonding time. This guide will help you have the best time together! 


Pick The Right Destination 

You could go pretty much anywhere and make it romantic, so you're not limited to places when it comes to deciding where you want to go. However, there are places considered more romantic than others. When we think of places such as Paris, Venice and Budapest we usually think of happy couples having a wonderful time. Make sure you know what sort of things you'd like to do on your visit and choose that way. Will you be relaxing or exploring? Where would you like to tick off your bucket list? 

Leave Your Work At Home

One of the worst things you can do on your romantic getaway is worry about work. Reading emails and worrying about what's going on back home will not stand you in good stead with your partner. Leave it at home and try to stay off your phone as much as possible. 

Try Not To Worry About Kids/Pets 

If you have kids and pets, it's so easy to worry about them the whole time you're away. Providing you've chosen somebody you can trust to take care of them, then you shouldn't need to worry too much. Make arrangements to call at planned times so you can spend the rest of the time just enjoying your trip and not feeling the need to check up all of the time.

Pick The Right Accomodation

Make sure you do your research and find the right accomodation for your romantic getaway. Read reviews and find out where's best for couples. You may not want the place you stay to be overrun with young children, for instance. If you look at something like Hillarys accomodation, you'll find plenty of options that are in a great place for couples. 

Plan Some Fun Things In Advance 

Plan a few fun things in advance so you have a rough plan for your getaway. Don't fill your itinerary  too much, as things can change and you want to stay flexible. You could plan a bike ride or a walking tour of the place you're visiting, for instance. Whatever suits you best! 

Stay Chilled

There's bound to be at least one thing that doesn't go quite to plan on your trip. Make sure you stay as chilled as possible to avoid things like this ruining your trip. It can be hard, but take some deep breaths and count to 10 before you react to anything. You'll have a much better time for it. 

I hope these tips help you to have an incredible romantic getaway. Make sure you make the most of your time away and really enjoy the company of your partner! 

BEAUTY: You're Not Beyonce, And You Don't Have To Be!

The thing about the beauty industry is that it's full of insider tips and tricks that we regular girls often don't get to hear about. But we can spend hours comparing ourselves to images online and in magazines, wondering why no matter how hard we try we can't achieve the same standard? But what can we do about this? Well, we can take some inspiration from these secrets and apply it to our own beauty regime. Read on to find out more. 

Be realistic

First of all, before we get into the secrets of the beauty industry, it's just necessary to know that they are there. 
Why? Well, it helps us to be more accepting and not put less pressure on ourselves to live up to beauty standards that aren't 100% natural. You're not Beyonce, and you don't have to be! 
Of course, there is nothing wrong with taking a leaf out of the celebrities book and doing something to maximise our look like the suggestions below. But just realizing that they need help too, can make it a lot easier for us to be at peace with ourselves. 

Realise that a lot of celebs have work done 

Now, you will probably be fairly aware of this ‘secret,' as it can be pretty obvious when celebrities have had extensive work done. Such as facelifts and nose jobs. Even if they don't like to admit it in public.

But having work done doesn't need to be so extreme. In fact, if you are looking to improve your appearance you can do much more subtle things like facial fillers, and lip plumpers that can really change the look of your face. As well as being much quicker, cheaper, and less invasive than going under the knife. 

Realise a lot of celebs wear wigs

Another well-kept secret in the world of celebrity beauty is that famous people wear wigs. Especially for an important occasions like red carpet appearances and the like. 
Now, you may think, well it’s understandable if they are losing their hair, but wig wearing isn't just limited to those going bald. It’s a commonplace article for anyone and everyone that wants to look their best.

These wigs are expensive too, as they are often custom made to match the celebrities own hair colour and texture. But exactly can we learn from this? Well, first of all, that looking after our hair is a vital part of any beauty regime. 
Secondly, you can try wearing wigs for big nights out, as they are readily available online. Or you can choose to enhance your own locks with extensions making them longer, or giving them a totally different style without having to go through the risk of actually getting it cut. 

Realise a lot of celebs have professional makeup artists

Lastly, it always helps to remember when you are looking at a picture of celebs at their best that they have a professional makeup artist in their employ. That means not only do they have the benefit of having someone do their makeup for them, but that person is also a professional with extensive experience in making people look their best.

We can learn from this by practicing our makeup looks before we wear them for real. As well as ensuring that our makeup is always well matched to our skin tone and applied properly so as to look flawless in all lights.
