Hey Fellas our freind Catherine had some real cool ideas for some fun shopping and zillions fun things to do this SUMMER :
Fab Summer Fun Freebies
Fun in the sun doesn’t have to cost the earth. Follow our top tips for an inexpensive summer this year.
Make the most of the great outdoors and head for a walk, which can help to burn off the calories before a delicious pub lunch. Invest in some good clobber to plan against the unpredictable British weather, such as good quality women’s and men’s jackets and sturdy boots. The UK is full of great walks – check out the Guardian’s Great British Walks for inspiration.
Take advantage of the sunny weather and take a picnic to your local park. Plan a romantic meal for two, or why not invite all your friends along and make a whole afternoon of it? If you’re lucky enough to live near a beach, pack the towels and swimsuit for a dip afterwards. Advance train tickets are a cheap option for exploring more of the UK – remember to pack your film-star shades and wide brimmed hat for summer time chic!
If you have a great garden, share it with your nearest and dearest by holding al fresco summer parties and BBQs. Relaxing with your loved ones is the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon, with the added advantage of being able to take it inside if it rains (and we all know how likely that is!).
If you’ve missed out on tickets to the big summer sports events, why not find your nearest outdoors big screen to catch Wimbledon or the Olympics with your fellow fans? If you’re a fan of the arts, there are always loads of free events to take advantage of. Lots of cities have open-air cinemas over the summer, with listings of events and festivals normally available on local websites.
If you fancy a break away from home but don’t have the money for a big holiday then why not look into house sitting? This new travel craze is a great way to visit a new place with free accommodation, with just a few plant-watering or cat-feeding duties to fulfil. The larger house sitting networks may require an annual fee, but the money you’ll save on hotel costs is guaranteed to make them worthwhile.
