Fall Is Almost Here: Don’t Forget These Essentials On Your Next Shopping Trip!

  Now we’re in September, fall really is right around the corner. Are you ready for the season ahead? After a long summer, there are a few pieces that you might have to pick up for your wardrobe and home on your next shopping trip. Here are some of the items to consider!  Coats and Jackets Fall is chilly but without the same biting cold as winter. This means it’s a great time of year for cute, fashionable coats. You can choose style over warmth since only a thin layer is needed to protect from the chill. A classic fitted mac will never go out of style and is something you can wear year and after year. A style that cinches the waist while skimming the hips looks ultra flattering on any figure, so a great fall staple for most women. Choose a length that takes your height into account, and a hemline sits at a comfortable place on your body. Some styles can look either too long or short on different heights. A trench coat is another timeless piece that works well for the fall. Throw on over jeans and Converse for a trendy, casual daytime look. Longline ‘boyfriend cardigans’ are also a great casual staple for this time of year, as we’re transitioning from warmer to cooler weather. Boots Time to retire the strappy sandals and dainty shoes, fall is the time for boots! A pair of heeled boots looks great over skinny jeans for the evening, or some flat Chelsea or combat boots for your everyday outfits. A good pair of wellies will also serve you well over the coming seasons. There are some higher end brands out there that have made wellies into more of a fashion boot, so there’s no better way to keep your feet warm and dry! Perfect for muddy nature walks or for walking your dogs. Long Sleeve Dresses, Tights and Leggings Casual long sleeve dresses are perfect for fall. Wear with thick tights or leggings, boots and a jacket for a comfortable and easy to wear outfit. If you choose plainer designs, you can dress them up or down easily and completely change how they look with accessories. Swing dresses, jumper dresses and skater dresses look good on a range of different body shapes so make perfect fall wardrobe staples. A quick and easy outfit to put together and will last you right the way through to the winter. Scarves, Hats and Gloves Cozy knits make an outfit instantly look more seasonally appropriate for the colder months. These are also a good way to add some interest to plain or...

Packing For A Successful Business Trip: 10 Must-Have Items

 Frequent flyers who travel for business become expert packers. They know exactly what to take to enhance their stay and remain productive. Take a leaf out of their book and make sure your pack these must-have items. 1. Awesome Carry On Bag Arguably one of the most important travel items is your carry on bag. It needs to be small and light enough to meet airline standards. While at the same time it has to allow for multiple items. And it needs to be sturdy and withstand being dragged through numerous airports and taxi ranks. 2. Sleep Mask Always pack a sleep mask for the flight and hotel. It will block out unwanted light and help your body produce melatonin. This is the hormone that allows your body to fall asleep naturally. Some airlines will provide these for you. Check with your provider when you book your discount business class seats. Getting enough sleep will help you arrive at your conference or meeting looking fresh and rested. 3. Headphones / Earplugs Pro travelers will extol the virtues of a good pair of headphones. It’s worth paying a little extra for a pair that fit comfortably and cancel out external noise. They are invaluable for train journeys and flights. Earplugs are another option. 4. Slip-On Shoes If possible, wear comfortable slip-on shoes. These will get you through airport security quicker. And they are easy to slip off once you’re comfortably in your seat. Your feet can swell a little during flights, so it’s a good idea to wear shoes that have a little extra room. 5. Comfy Socks If you’re on a long haul-flight, you might as well make yourself comfortable. Slip off your shoes and settle back. Take a comfortable pair of socks that will keep your feet warm. Planes can feel very cold. 6.Lightweight Laptop You don’t want to be lugging around heavy tech. Take a lightweight laptop and load it up with all relevant documents. Even better, store your work on a cloud service like Google Drive. This will ensure it is accessible wherever you go. A local version can be downloaded to your devices for when there is no wifi. 7. E-Reader If you like to read, load up your e-reader with books. Opt for a version with a built-in reading light. This will save you valuable space in your carry-on luggage. 8. Day To Evening Clothing To save space in your suitcase, take outfits that will work for business and social events. Take smart, comfortable shoes if you are going to multiple locations. Your feet will thank you for it. 9. Pen And Notebook Though...

The Best Ways To Save Money On Traveling

 Who doesn’t love traveling? Even if you took a trip to the closest country possible, you’re bound to have some amazing experiences. I’ve had some of the most memorable times of my life out of my home country, but there’s one thing I don’t like about travel: how expensive it is! If you find you have this issue too, here are some great tips for saving money on travel. My first tip is to choose the best time to travel. I know there are certain destinations where this isn’t really possible. Obviously you don’t want to take a ski trip in the height of summer! However, if you’d be willing to shift your trip forward or backwards by a few weeks, you could end up saving a lot on the price of your flights. You may only have to change your plans by a few days! Weekend tickets to certain destinations are far more expensive than ones during the week. I understand that it can be pretty tough to check when the most economical time to fly is. Luckily, there are several tools for this. Why not try these price alerts from Skyscanner? This next tip is more for when you’re out there: scrimp on food. Obviously when you’ve gone to a different country, you’ll want to sample the local cuisine and immerse yourself in the culture. However, eating out every day you’re there will end up being extremely costly. If you make a point of staying somewhere with kitchen facilities, you’ll be able to save a lot of money by cooking your own meals. Obviously, you’ll want to eat out at some time or another. For this, I recommend keeping an eye out for lunch specials. There are many countries, particularly in Europe, where you can get massively discounted food around lunch time. This will mean you can save money without having to miss out too much on the great cuisine. My final tip is to plan your travel within the country well ahead of time. The cost of getting from place to place can be very substantial, especially if you’re somewhere with a good tourist trade. If you’re planning to hit several different locations in a fairly rural area, then I recommend checking out some HotWire car rentals. These packages are geared specifically towards tourists, and in a lot of cases end up being a lot cheaper than paying your own way. If you’re visiting one city, on the other hand, then I advise you to get a public transport travel card. Almost every city in the world runs discount schemes on their public transport. If you...

A Guide To Organizing A Girl’s Skiing Break

 Do you love to travel with your girlfriends? If the answer is yes, the chances are that whenever you and the girls go away, it’s to a hot location, where you sunbathe and sip cocktails, are we right? Well this year, why not plan a girl’s break with a difference and go skiing? Beach breaks are great, but sometimes, it pays to mix things up a little. They still sell cocktails in ski resorts; you just can’t sunbathe while sipping them. Whether you’ve skied before, or not, a skiing break could be the perfect girl’s getaway. There might not be any white sandy beaches – sorry girls, but there will be beautiful mountains to glide down, and apres bars to drink in. Not to mention the fact that the accommodation on offer tends to be incredibly luxurious. A ski vacation can be a lot of fun and can make a welcome break from your normal beach trip. To plan the most amazing girl’s skiing break, keep reading. Book a chalet, not a hotel Believe it or not, chalets often work out cheaper than hotel rooms, if there’s a group of you, that is. Plus, by opting to stay in a chalet, you’ll have an entire ‘house’ to relax in, instead of just a hotel room. You’ll have a kitchen, so you can cook whatever you fancy. Plus, you could even have household help if you opt for a catered chalet. The great thing about opting for a chalet is that you can get some fantastic deals. If you go for a package deal, like these Mont Tremblant rentals, you can save money and spend your break living in luxury. It’s just a case of being smart about the accommodation you pick and where you book it from. Hire a ski instructor If anyone in the group can’t ski, it’s a good idea to hire a ski instructor. While you could opt to take part in group classes, private lessons will see you progress more quickly. As a group, hire a ski instructor for the week and then split their time up between you so that you all have the chance to improve your skiing abilities. It’s a good idea to specify that you’d like an English-speaking ski instructor. As otherwise, you may end up learning from someone who doesn’t speak very good English. This will make the learning process much more difficult and may hinder your progress. Reserve your lift passes in advance Whatever you do, don’t leave buying your lift passes until the day you arrive, else you’ll spend hours queuing for them. It’s best to reserve them...

Unconventional Vacation Ideas for Web City Girls Like Us

 If you’ve caught the travel bug, you’ll understand our urge to see as much of the world as possible. There’s a whole planet out there to explore, and over at Web City Girls, we want to see it all. (Okay, probably not every last inch, but most of what’s out there, anyway.) The main problem for us travel lovers when it comes to seeing the world is money. Traveling can take a lot to fund, even if you do it on the cheap. Luckily, if you take the leap and get a little unconventional about the way that you travel, you can make globe trotting a little more doable. There might not be any luxe hotel rooms – sorry girls, but by switching up how you travel, you can see all four corners of the globe. And all without putting too bigger a dent in your savings. For everything you need to know, make sure to keep reading. Road trip it One of the best ways to see and explore the world is by taking a road trip. You’ll save on accommodation and won’t have to stress about buying plane ticket after plane ticket. All you’ll need is a motorhome, fuel money, and food. Today, travel trailers and motorhomes are incredibly spacious and comfortable. They even come with built-in bathrooms – neat, right? The main reason girls like us love the idea of taking a road trip is because of the freedom it brings. Having a set of wheels with beds, a mini kitchen and bathroom in, allows us to go wherever we want, whenever we want. Plus, we don’t need to stress about the cost of accommodation – always the most expensive part of traveling. Couchsurf If you’re willing to forgo the luxury of a hotel room and instead, sleep on a stranger’s couch, you can make traveling more doable. It might seem a little risky – going to a stranger person’s home alone, but there’s a website dedicated to Couchsurfing. (If you’re choosy about who you stay with, and don’t go it alone, Couchsurfing is fairly safe.) The best thing about this informal accommodation is the fact that it’s free – 100 percent free of charge. Of course, your host might appreciate you splitting the cost of food, but as far as money goes, that’s about it. If you’re skint, Couchsurfing is one of the best ways to see the world. All you need to do is save for a plane ticket. Volunteer abroad Want to give your karma a boost and see the world at the same time, and then volunteer abroad. At some point or...
