On our recent trip to Spain we flew from Dubai to Gatwick with Emirates, then picked up an Easyjet flight down to Alicante. Now, I don't think I've flown on Easyjet since they've changed to allocated seating. Which my friends, is sooo much better! I used to hate the 'bun fight' which always happened, where you'd try not to make 'eye contact' when you had found a seat, hoping that someone wouldn't ask you to move up!

With most low cost airlines you have to pay for everything these days. We checked luggage in and booked two suitcases at 20kg each and if you're slightly over, you will have to remove some items to make it the weight you booked. I'd strongly recommend investing in a bag weigher. We've got one and it's brilliant! Couldn't be without it now. (Get yours here & here!).

What I do like about Easyjet is there's no weight limit on hand luggage, but the bag does have to be the size they say online. Both at Gatwick and Alicante airports the staff were very strict with the hand luggage. Both ways, while queueing up to board, the staff would walk down the line and if ladies had a handbag too, they made you squeeze it into your wheelie bag. I also noticed they were checking the size of wheelie bags, in the size checker thingy-me-jig! So be careful, make sure you're within limits!

Again, both ways at the boarding gate, they were asking people if they had any bags they would mind checking in to the hold, no charge. I'm guessing to reduce the amount of cabin baggage, as it's always a squeeze. (Maybe it's a way to check your bag in without paying, hehe. Food for thought).

Overall though, I though Easyjet were really good. The Cabin Crew both ways were friendly and professional. The seats aren't the most comfortable, but for a two hour flight they're fine. I don't know if I could cope on a longer flight though, haha. The seats don't have the recline feature anymore. I've heard about some other airlines removing this. At first I thought it was a stupid idea, but since flying recently, I actually think it's a good idea. As the seats are quite tight to start with and space is limited, the last thing you want is the seat in front to recline and leave you with zero space!

They offered a good range of food and drink and I didn't find the prices too over inflated (maybe I've lived in Dubai too long, haha) and I was impressed with the duty free magazine. Some great products and actually better then Emirates duty free.

Have you flown on Easyjet recently? Love to know your thoughts on them!

Soap & Glory Think Pamper Gift Set

My other 'airport purchase' whilst at LGW, was this Soap & Glory gift set. I looooooove Soap & Glory! Actually, I think most of us girls do! For me, Soap & Glory gift products are always a must for Birthdays and at Christmas time. So hubs treated me to this Pamper Gift set (find it here) as an early Christmas present, lucky me!

I've been good so far and have not used any of the products, but I have dipped into the body scrub, as my skin was well overdue for a good 'ol scrub! Actually, the only reason we popped into Boots was to pick up a body scrub for moi and I came out with the whole set!

 I chose this particular one, as I have used all the products before and love them all (I haven't tried the heel cream before, but I'm confident I'm going to love it as much as the others and looking forward to trying it out!) I knew every product would get used. Don't you find that sometimes in the Christmas gift sets, there's always a few products that are never opened and end up being flung to the back of the drawer?! Not this time!!

The wash bag everything comes in is a really good size, perfect for future trips away! All the products are neatly inside the bag wrapped up in pink and black striped tissue paper. The set is £18 and of course is included in Boots famous 3 for 2 mix and match promotion!!

The Think Pamper Gift Set Includes:

Clean On Me Creamy Moisture Shower Gel 75ml
Heel Genius Foot Cream 50ml
Hand Food Hand Cream 50ml
The Scrub Of Your Life Body Scrub 50ml
The Righteous Butter Body Butter 50ml
Glad Hair Day Shampoo 50ml
Body Polisher

FatFace Pyjama Shorts

We are finally back from our little Spanish vacay. I would love to tell you how it was filled with tapas, vino, shopping and walks along the beautiful beaches, but alas it was not. Instead, hubby fell down the stairs, I was struck down with a sickness stomach bug and was wiped out for a day and a half. We both now have colds. The house needs even more work done to it, more blocked pipes, affecting the main bedroom air con, so the wall needs to come down! Other then that, we had a lovely time! We did, honestly. Even with all the bad luck we still remained positive. The builder is really good and is getting everything sorted with the house and with our sickness, well, we'd rather be poorly in our own home, then a random hotel somewhere!

Anyway, let's get onto the main reason of today's blog post! Travelling back, we went via LGW and of course had a nose around the shops. I was sooo chuffed to see FatFace was there, as I thought they'd gone bust! Luckily for me they're still around and I instantly fell in love with soo much of their stuff. Such good quality. Being a little sensible and kinda realising jumpers and winter clothes are a complete waste of time for me in the Middle East lol, yep getting sensible in my old age! I was drawn over to their sleepwear section. I picked up these gorgeous check pyjama shorts (here), tried them on, immediately fell in love and so chuffed that a (UK size) 10 fitted perfectly! I could of even gone for an 8 (jumping for joy!) but I like my sleepwear to be a little loose, so I'm nice and comfy in bed.

These pyjama shorts are made with 100% cotton and are so soft it's crazy, they have the cutest trim and white bow. I got them for £16.80 at the airport and they're £20 on the website. A little pricey for sleep shorts? Maybe, but the quality is fab and when you work out the SPW (spend per wear) they are a bargain really! Also, with Christmas around the corner these would make a lovely little present for your wife/girlfriend/sister/auntie/mother! They have them in full length (here) and if you fancy going the whole hog, they have the most amazing matching dressing gown (here) and slippers too! (here).

Sleep-shorts selfie! FatFace

(from the internet - google search)

I saw this quote today and I shared it over on my Facebook page. It' such a simple quote, but it's true, Be Your Own Inspiration. 100%, do what you want to do, how you want to do it and don't just 'follow the crowd'. So many of us do follow the crowd through our lives and try to do things that society suggests we should do. Sometimes, we need to step back and focus on us and what type of person we want to be. Be YOU! You're amazing!
