The Sloaney’s top travel tips to help start your Easter holiday in style
Whether you are jetting off to top up your tan this Easter, or hitting the slopes for a spot of Spring skiing, The Sloaney has some great travel tips to make sure you are perfectly prepared for your holiday…
Catch up on your Zzzz’s
Travel time is dead time and it gives you the perfect opportunity to catch up on any missed sleep. After all, you don’t want to arrive at your destination exhausted before you have even started. Not only should you invest in a comfortable travel pillow but a Cashmere Scarf, like this gorgeous rose pink one by Valentino (£725), will allow you to stay nice and cosy whilst flying through the sky. And let’s face it, this is a much more stylish alternative to the blanket provided by your airline.
A fun read
Before you slip off into the land of nod, why not slip off into the fun and frivolous world of Chick Lit. Along Came a Stork is the latest book written by former airhostess, Marissa Mackle. Having displayed light-hearted humour in her previous novels, this latest contribution will surely bring a smile to your face.
Hydrate and nourish your skin
Spending time in a plane can play havoc with your skin. The air-conditioning will usually dry it out and leave it looking far from radiant. But fear not, one of The Sloaney’s all-time favourite skincare brands has come to the rescue. Nubo has released a limited edition luxury gift set (£95), which offers a complete skincare system and includes a selection of Nubo’s essential youth-boosting elixirs. The gift set is a perfect travel pack and contains Cell Dynamic The Essence, Cell Dynamic Day Performance and Cell Dynamic Overnight Recharge, all in chic 10ml tubes that are perfect for your hand luggage.
*Thumbs up from the Editor*
Our Editor recently tried these lotions and potions on a long-haul flight and cannot recommend them highly enough; “These products must be magic! The results were unbelievable and this is a must have set for every weekend away or holiday”.
Cosy socks for cosy toes
There is a time and a place for platforms or stilettos, and an aircraft is not one of them. You may want to arrive in style but you should definitely slip a pair of big, snuggly socks in your Birkin for a comfortable journey. British heritage brand, Hunter, has given the traditional knee-high sock a playful twist with alternating candy hues (£15).
Protect your tech
If you can’t leave your iPad at home, then make sure you buy a striking new cover to help protect it on its travels. This Adjustable iPad Sleeve by Mulberry (£375) will give your technology a classic and sophisticated look. The leather cover offers great protection and features the unmistakable Mulberry Tree logo.
