If you saw last weeks post about how to stylishly holiday at home hopefully you’ve been waiting for part 2.
And, here it is…
As it seems staycations or holidaying at home is becoming more attractive these days. Whether that be down to your budget constraints, lifestyle choices or maybe you’re a new mum and the thought of venturing on a plane fills you with dread.
But, a holiday spent in one’s home country rather than abroad doesn’t have to mean you can’t get into the holiday spirit!
Oh no – with a few clever buys and a lot of imagination you can bring a touch of the Italian coast, French Rivera, Spanish or Greek Isles to your doorstep.
