With the air growing colder by the day, dark and foggy mornings, and the seemingly relentless rain you wouldn't be blamed for daydreaming of getting away from it all and basking in the sunshine on far away islands. I will admit that it has crossed my mind more than once (a day...) and I am keeping my fingers crossed for a lottery win so I can whisk the family off to enjoy some Winter sun somewhere special over Christmas. A girl can dream!
My top ten picks for Winter sun destinations (in no particular order) would be Mexico, Sri Lanka, Cuba, Brazil, Thailand, Mauritius, the Canary Islands, St Lucia, the Maldives, and Australia. Relaxing on a white sandy beach with a cool drink in hand, shaded by palm trees, and listening to the waves lap the shore. I'm seconds away from packing a bag and setting off! (I wish). If you're lucky enough to be heading to sunnier climes this Winter then let me share a few of my favourite holiday must-haves.
- LifeProof Phone Case
For capturing those all important action shots during watersports and swimming without destroying your phone in the process. Lovely Lisa from Hollybobbs.co.uk took one when we went to Rhodes in September and I so wish I had taken one too, she caught some great moments. If we are fortunate enough to be able to take the kids away next year then I'll definitely be snapping one of these up for our trip to preserve our memories.
I was sent a pair of FlopZ pearl flipflops (£35) to take on my visit to Rhodes, and after some initial uncertainty - Are they comfy? Or do they just feel weird? - I can say that I think they're fab. I'm a big flip flop lover & spend all Summer wearing them, but FlopZ are different in that the clear textured layer massages your feet as you walk. And it actually DOES. By the end of our break I didn't want to take them off but it was sadly not quite flip flop weather on our return to the UK, I'm looking forward to treating my feet to daily massages as soon as the Summer rolls around.
- TeckNet Power Bank
Trust me, you do not want to be without one of these on your next trip. I picked one up for just under £20 before my visit to Rhodes because I was going to be using my iPhone as my camera, and I would have been lost without it. It is essentially a compact, portable power pack that holds 4-5 full mobile charges, meaning that even if my phone was close to running out of juice, I knew I had a charger to hand and I wouldn't miss a single moment.
And of course - don't forget your sunnies!
Are you jetting off to enjoy the Winter sun this year? What are your holiday must-haves?
I received a complimentary pair of Flopz for review purposes. The views shared are my own personal & honest opinions and written in my own words.
