The last four Things Jackie Bought...
London Underground Day Pass £15.90
I was in London recently for a training day in Covent Garden with the company I work with, Travel-pa. Seven tour operators and tourist boards talked to us about their fabulous destinations, including Bermuda and Mauritius. It was a lovely day and to top it off, the Cyprus Tourist Board took us out for a meal at Brown’s Brasserie.
Celebrity Nail Foils, £4.99 Adel Beauty Warehouse
I saw these when I was looking for a summery nail polish for my toes and thought they sounded like a much better option. I like my feet to look nice when I’m on the beach. They promise to last throughout your holiday, even if you’re away for two weeks. I have a break planned at Halkidiki’s five-star Sani Resort in October.
Blue Jumpsuit, £22,Tesco Direct
I found this while browsing online. I reckon everyone needs one of these versatile jumpsuits in their summer holiday wardrobe. You can dress it up with sparkly accessories and heels, or wear with flats for daytime. It will be great for a summer wedding I’m going to at the end of the month and for my trip to Halkidiki in October.
Advance Techniques Daily Shine Dry End Serum, £3.50 Avon
I use loads of this on my hair to stop it from going frizzy in hot weather.
You can use it on wet or dry hair and it makes your hair look much smoother and shinier, too. It’s a bargain price. I had tried loads of serums before finding this one.
