World Cup Widow.....

well one week in ....The only conversation in the office is of a footballing nature and my daily job is to update the wall planner as the final whistle blows!...

So, this got me thinking of all the benefits that the world cup has to offer us girls!.. here's a few of my suggestions
  • Chick Flick Cinema ~ plan your visit to coincide with a popular game, the road's are empty and 2 hours of uninterrupted bliss watching a great chick flick, recommended are Sex & the City 2 and Letters to Juliet.
  • Afternoon Tea ~ especially for those afternoon games, for something a little different  in London check out these  Haagen-Dazs (Leicester square only) complete with ice cream cupcakes and, Sex & The City Tea (Churchill Hyatt) complete with cosmo's!
  • Beauty Hall Treats ~ check out your local department store, lot's are hosting beauty event evenings during the tournament.
  • Theatre ~ lot's of theatres are offering discount tickets, some London theatres from £10 a ticket..
  • Shop the Sales ~ most retailers have gone into sale early to compete... check
  • Grab a good book or visit the library, here are 9 reads  to escape from it all, curl up with a coffee, chocolate & a book... mmm heaven.
  • Blog hop.... follow 10 new blogs that you find hopping during the football... we all know how we can loose hours whilst blogging!
  • Alternatively if all these fail, there's always Glee!... have a Glee night, it will brighten anyone's evening... enjoy Tx

Great ideas! I'm loving how empty the trains are at the moment on the way home.

Some of your ideas sound brilliant, just wish I lived nearer to London (oh well). Went to see Sex and the City 2 with my friend one afternoon and there was only the 2 of us there!! Thanks for another list of books. Have just come back from another holiday in Northumberland and the apartment had I heart New York on the shelf so just had to read it. Loved it and it only took me 4 days to read. Love your tips x
