Travel as much as you can. You can earn back your money, you can’t earn back your time.
If someone were to tell me this time last year that I was going to go swimming with pink dolphins in the Amazon River, or that I was going to visit the Norwegian Fjords, then I probably would have laughed in their faces. Sure, travelling the world has always been a dream of mine, but I only believed it would be possible when I finally kicked in my ASOS addiction and saved some money (and that probably wasn’t going to happen any time soon!).
Summertime. For many, this is the time for dancing in a mud-ridden field until they can’t feel their feet, drinking ciders for breakfast, lunch and dinner (again, until they can’t feel their feet), and camping for a long weekend, surrounded by music and friends.
I was 10 years old when I was invited to my first Sparkleworks pamper party. Not only was it the unique party idea of getting a makeover with my friends, but it was also the exceptionally positive and friendly service of the host, Swindon-based Sarah Southall, that left me coming back to them for my parties throughout my pre-teen years.
