Whether you’re snorkelling in Mauritius or enjoying a 99 Flake in Margate, the seaside can be great summer fun or a series of embarrassing mishaps. From vacations to stay-cations, we’ve rounded up the universal code of conduct when it comes to that all-important beach etiquette…
The music, the food, the impromptu Volleyball matches… there isn’t much of a finer time than a trip to the beach with friends. However, there’s nothing worse than when someone treats the coastline as if it’s their very own. We’re talking booming portable speakers, towels taking up too much space and sandcastles built in high traffic areas. Do you happen to be Sir Richard Branson on Neckar Island…? We thought as much, now turn it down – or just get a Mini MP3 Player instead! Read more
In today’s world of sculpted celebrities, post-Olympics guilt and the comeback of the kettlebell, there’s an overwhelming pressure to jump on the fitness bandwagon. Unfortunately, not all of us are bouncing gym bunnies hopping from the treadmill to the cross trainer. Perhaps our tails were clipped at an early age by a callous PE teacher, or the trauma of our school sports days chased us down a rabbit hole, where we vowed never to resurface in a playing field again. But there’s no reason to bring back those childhood ordeals just to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A recent upsurge of fitness fads has given us alternative ways to stay active – some wackier than others – which may just stop you from grudgingly registering at the nearest sports centre. We’ll leave you to decide whether these fads are rad, mad or just plain sad… Read more
Are you getting a little fed up with your traditional restaurant options? Italian getting irritating? French getting frustrating, Thai getting tiresome or Mexican getting a bit, well, meh? Luckily, there’s a whole world of alternatives cropping up for you to chow down on. Yes, apparently food is the latest hot new thing (who’d have thought it?), with culinary kings and queens all over the country clamouring for the latest on-trend cuisines. Read more

Take our word for it – the cat’s pyjamas aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. They’re far too small, incredibly difficult to fit all our limbs into and boast a tuna-odour that makes us feel like we’re sleeping with the fishes. We’d rather leave that to the Sopranos, thanks.
Thermalwear pyjamas on the other hand, well we’re big fans of that here at Wowcher. After all, the bedroom is the last place you want to be battling the elements! Zuzi’s Thermawear PJs are the perfect remedy to a chilly chamber, keeping you warm and cosy thanks to its fancy-pants thermal material. And if Old Man Winter should creep his withered old behind into our boudoir, at the very least he’ll see us wearing something stylish, as opposed to the double duvet look you’ve been sporting for the last couple of months or so…
Fancy a pair of your own? You know where to go…
Copywriter Rose goes for Wowcher pink (naturally) with her hair chalks…
So you’ve gone brown, blonde and black, but what next? We think summery hues are far more exciting than our natural hair, so we’ve been experimenting with funky hair chalks in the Wowcher office. Hey, if it’s good enough for Kelly O, it’s certainly good enough for us! Perfect for indecisive ladies and commitment-phobes everywhere, you can transfrom your locks with wash-out colour meaning if you change your mind, your original ‘do is only a shower away. Our favourite so far has to be punky pink dipped onto the ends of hair for a subtle yet summery style – just the look that bagged Little Mix’s Perrie her One Direction man! If you’re more of a lilac lady, try rubbing stylish pale purple throughout your locks, or why not get bold with baby blue? So if you like the idea of adding some colour to your summer ‘do, just click here!
If you ask us, there’s no better way to spend a girlie night in than gossiping, eating popcorn and painting your nails! There’s nothing better than experimenting with your friends with all sorts of different colours and brands – and these days there are no end of novelty polishes to aid us on our way. One problem though – they never last long enough! Most nail varnishes seem to have a two day life span before cracks appear and they start to peel and need repainting. That’s why I couldn’t wait to get a gel manicure and see what all the fuss was about…
