The Fanciest Vacation Homes You Can Travel By Train Or Bus | Purchases

So you have June 21 in mind and you and the girls start thinking about summer and school vacation plans. We can’t blame you, we are doing the same.

You might not be able to book this all-inclusive Marbella package just yet, but a stay in the UK is officially planned (cheers, Boris).

If you can’t drive or, you know, you just don’t want to, you can feel like you have no options. Seriously, why do all of those Holiday-style dream cottages exist at the end of a dirt road that you can only access if you’re driving a four-by-four?

The injustice is real but, luckily for you, we’ve researched and found some solid options to get your vacation dreams (UK rules allow …) back on track.

From city breaks to seaside getaways, we present …

Just because you’re traveling by train doesn’t mean you have to give up your dreams of a seaside cottage. Bournemouth is the classic quaint seaside town, and this light and airy house gives us major Mamma Mia vibes – c it is also just minutes from the ocean.

St. Ives is Cornwall’s gift to the UK. Its sleepy little harbor offers some of the best seafood you’ll ever taste, there are plenty of art galleries, and the beach is just a stone’s throw away. Dreamer.

19 trendy summer dresses that are worthy of “June 21”

Amber Gill started a collection with Public Desire and that’s what dreams are made of

In the meantime, while waiting for the restrictions to relax, here are some tips from the heat team for a more bearable containment …

1. Make your indoor space as calming as possible

Treat yourself to a few household items to make the most of the pieces you will see a lot over the next few months. Why not start with a little greenery to provide oxygen or maybe a salt lamp to purify the air around you. According to Women’s Health magazine, salt lamps “release negative ions into the air when [they] warm – making you feel better, naturally. “

2. Invest in “active” skin care

Wearing a mask can seriously damage your skin. Now that you have a little more time before and after work (if you’re from WFH), try to figure out what your skin really needs. Hyaluronic acid can help with dryness and niacinamide can help with excessive sebum production. Plus, these days you can get all of those whimsical-sounding assets for less than a decade or so. The Ordinary and The Inkey List are great places to start.

3. Take the necessary time away from your devices

When the only way to interact with your friends and family is online, it can get a bit exhausting to be constantly present in the virtual world. Try to set aside an hour or two every other day to spend time without a screen. You can read a book or try meditation – the Calm app is great for beginners.
