7 ways to keep you entertained at the airport

passport-e1503092179249.jpg

We love the airport. Its one of our favourite parts about going on holiday, so much so that we often give ourselves longer a the airport than we actually need.

No matter how much you love the airport no one wants to see the words ‘delayed’ pop up on the screen because if there is one thing we love more than the airport its sitting by the pool with a cocktail in hand. Instead of being trapped trapped inside an airport when its not your own choice.

We decided to collate a list of ways to keep you entertained when you do see the dreaded word ‘DELAYED’ appear right before your eyes.

airport.jpg

1). Treat yourself to a coffee and a bite to eat- usually by the time you are through security you just about have time for a coffee and before you know it your gate it open and you are boarding your flight. If your flight it delayed your airline may even give you free food and drink vouchers.

2). Shop around duty free- buy a magazine or a book, treat yourself to something that you have been eyeing up for a while because airport money isn’t real money its Monopoly money right? At least that’s what we tell ourselves!

3). Pay to be upgraded to business class lounge- we recently did this and oh my gosh it was definitely worth it. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast served with prosecco of course, unlimited wifi and free magazines.

4). People watch- this is literally one of our favourite things to do in life! It is so fascinating watching people and trying to figure out there lives etc just make sure you don’t get caught staring as that could be slightly awkward.

5). Make sure you have downloaded a selection of programmes to watch on your Ipad/tablet/phone- this is a must for any flight, we always make sure we have a selection of programmes downloaded on our Ipads. We always pack our headphone splitter so we can enjoy programmes together as well.

6). Use it as a time to research the country you are visiting- we are usually quite organised with our planning and most of the time we lists of places we want to visit and things we want to see but there is no harm in looking at more hashtags on Instagram and lusting over some delicious brunch spots. If you have purchased and tourist book of the city or country you are visiting then this would be the perfect time to sit down and do some reading.

7). Play card games- who doesn’t go on holiday without a pack of cards in there bag? We love playing cards on holiday and one of our favourite card games of all time is Uno! So remember to pack them in your hand luggage as they are a great way to pass some time.

What do you get up to at the airport? we would love to know! 🙂

 

Why you should visit Wembley Park

image 6

We decided to visit the designer outlet at Wembley Park one Saturday. As it was a super sunny day we thought we would make the day of it. The London Designer Outlet (LDO) in Wembley Park is so easy to get to via train, we both just hopped on the Metropolitan Line from our homes but you can also easily visit here from Central London and take the Metropolitan Line from Baker Street to Wembley Park Station. It was such a beautiful day when we stepped off the train, the sun was shining and it was warm enough to take our jackets off. We couldn’t wait to make the most of our day at LDO.

LDO is a short walk from the station and you get to walk past the stadium giving you the chance to see the iconic arch up close. When we arrived at LDO we headed straight for a coffee at one of the many coffee shops LDO has to offer. This time though we opted for Neros as we noticed there was outside seating. There is also two Starbucks & Pret a manger. We both had an iced soya latte with a shot of sugar free vanilla syrup. We also decided to share a berry crumble slice and a piece of cappuccino cake both of which were delicious. We made our way outside and found a little table in the sunshine, it was amazing to be sat outside in the sunshine watching the world go by.

Once we had finished at Neros we headed straight to H&M as there were massive signs on the shop windows that said there was an extra 20% off all items. We both bought the same jumper for our Easter photo shoot as it was only £5 you can’t really complain! We also spotted a super cute grey hooded jumper that we both just had to buy again this was only £5.

There are so many sports outlets in LDO that we decided to head to the sports shops straight after H&M. We were definitely not disappointed there was so much choice and it was all so cheap, if you love fitness activewear then this would be your idea of heaven. There is a Nike, adidas, New Balance and Aasics to name a few.

The first sports shop we went to was Nike and we were really happy with the collections they had on offer! We picked up a pair of black running shorts which cost us £19 which some might say is expensive for a pair of running shorts but trust us when we say it is worth spending the money as the materials they use are breathable which is great when training in the summer. We also purchased a red t-shirt from the kids section which was actually boys. You wouldn’t even know it wasn’t female and with it only costing £10 we couldn’t say no!

Next up was Adidas which is one of our favourite sports brands! We didn’t know where to start looking when we entered the store, the collections on sale were beautiful and all the colours were incredibly vibrant it made us so excited to add some more vibrant colours to our active wear collection. We both spotted a lime green sports bra that we immediately fell in love with and was an absolute bargain as it only cost us £15. Our favourite purchase of the day was definitely some amazing atzec pattered shorts which only cost us £11! We will be shooting in when we go to Paris on the 29th April so keep an eye out for those photos!

We were having so much fun shopping (it’s not often we spend a full day shopping) that time flew away and before we knew it it was 3oclock and we hadn’t eaten lunch. There are so many restaurants at LDO you will be spoilt for choice when deciding where to go. We opted for Nando’s as you can’t go wrong with chicken. There was a 20 minute wait, but we wanted to sit outside so we were seated straight away, It was so warm we wanted to make the most of the sunny weather. We started with humous and pitta and of course had bottomless drinks. Then for the main we went MEGA! We shared a whole chicken with four regular sides (spicy rice, chips, macho peas and super grains) we then also ordered sweet potato mash and halloumi! It was delicious and sadly we couldn’t squeeze in a pudding.

At 4:30pm we started to make our way back to the station, we were both grinning from ear to ear as we were so chuffed with our purchases. We had such a fun day at Wembley that the following week we decided to return and were fortunate enough to get tickets to Craig David concert at The SSE Arena, Wembley to re live our childhood! We had seen Craig David at the Summertime Ball last year at Wembley Stadium and he was amazing, so we knew we were in for a treat!

On the afternoon of the concert we arrived and headed to Pret a Manger for a fresh smoothie, it was such a hot Sunday we sat outside and watched the world go by, everyone was in high spirits drinking before the concert and enjoying the glorious weather.

We headed to TGI Fridays for some dinner before the concert, where we both enjoyed delicious meals and great atmosphere. After dinner we decided to quickly head to Treats which is a dessert bar. We love dessert so a place dedicated to desserts is amazing! We both got mango lassis, which tasted incredible. We also shared a apple & blackberry crumble with custard and a chocolate brownie sundae….. ooo naughty!

We then headed to The SSE Arena, Wembley to boogy the night away with Craig David,  sorry the photos below are not great quality its hard to get decent photos when its so dark inside!

We are so fortunate to live so close to Wembley Park to make the most of the amenities, however its so easy to get to by train that we would recommend a visit to the shops or restaurants, or see you can get tickets to an event at The SSE Arena Wembley  or Wembley Stadium. We are hoping the Summertime Ball is at the Stadium again this year because we definitely want to go again in the summer!

Don’t forget to watch our  vlog all about our day shopping too!

High Street Active Wear

Apart from looking half smart for work we practically live in gym gear, its super comfy so why not. We don’t tend to spend too much money on sports wear because, well, you don’t necessarily need to! There are plenty of high street stores that now offer a large range of active wear, so we decided to put it all to the test! Buying new gym gear is great motivation to get back to the gym, just the motivation to burn off those extra mince pies and beat the January blues!

New Look: New look have a great selection of active wear, and its even better when its in the sale! The leggings are very comfy and fit very well. The tops are cool and we are a bit of a sucker for these slogan tees. You still have to look stylish when working out right?!

Primark: We cannot resist popping into Primark, especially when there’s one on the highstreet right by work. Primarks gym gear is affordable, comfy and also bang on trend. We cannot resist a bargain and Primark certainly offers this!

Forever 21: Forever 21 offer a great range of gym gear, and when they have 10% student discount ever better. However we do find their sizes a bit dodgy and their leggings have been know to keep falling down – you don’t want to be constantly pulling up those leggings whilst on the tread mill not such a good look! We recomend you try the Forever 21 range  on before buying!

Topshop (Ivy Park – Beyonce): This range might be super stylish, but then does it take it a little too far? Who wants to wear a leotard to the gym, imagine that wedgie whilst on the squat rack. You have to draw the line somewhere between looking good but feeling comfortable. We also do not think the quality of the range is that great, you’re better off spending your money elsewhere!

JD Sports Ellesse: If you wear this brand you’ll start to look just like their model Luck Meck right?! Ha, we wish, better get on that Results With Lucy plan! However the range is pretty neat, and we cannot resist a bit of celebrity endorsement, plus this range brings back slight nostalgia of being a kid in the 90s again!

JD Sports Pink Soda: This range is mega fashionable but also very comfy. The cool logo and simple designs makes the range perfect for those who want to spend a little more on gym wear. However when there is a sale on you can nab yourself some bargains, shorts from £20 down to £6, now we are talking!

What is your go to active wear shop, we would love to know yours!?
