Happy holiday shopping..

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside...Do you? Have you booked any holidays yet? Here at forward2me, several of us have succumbed to the temptation of a getaway and are jetting off to exotic places in the hope of catching some sun.

Hmmm. So what will you need to take with you? Open the drawer or the cupboard where the holiday clobber is kept. Are the clothes in various stages of decomposition? Have your flip-flops well and truly flopped? Is there stuff in there that you bought, tried on and then wondered why you’d bought it in the first place then just kept anyway in the hope that the fashion would eventually come round again? Is your ‘capsule’ wardrobe in a time-capsule? Me too...time to sort out your holiday shopping.

Never fear - the internet is here! And with a little help from forward2me, you can stock up on all the holiday essentials so that you can feel good this summer. If you’re on a budget or want stuff you don’t need to worry about if it ends up in the wrong country, try Matalan,New Look or H&M for glamorous holiday wear. If your five star boutique hotel requires slightly more sophistication, try the online fashion from ASOS, still at affordable prices. Don’t forget the sunhat! Or the flip-flops, bikini or trunks. And accessorise, darlings, accessorise. Any tatty T-shirt can be jazzed up with a scarf or some costume jewellery to hide the stains from the previous evening’s sangria soiree...

Once you’ve got all the gear, you’ll need something to put it all in. Treat yourself to new luggage that will stand the test of time and stand out from the crowd on the carousel. And you'll probably need a beach bag for the bits and bobs – the kindle, the shades and the sarong. Passport case? Very stylish numbers from Louis Vuitton or Radley... Just remember to use forward2me’s door to door tracked service and to contact customer services if you need to use our personal shopper service.

Bon voyage...
