Staycation travel guide: what you need to know

Are you thinking about enjoying a staycation this year? Wondering where to go, what type of holiday to go on, and what to take with you? We’re here to help. We’ve put together this handy guide exploring the fantastic holidays you can enjoy in destinations across the UK.

Where are some of the best staycation destinations in the UK?

The UK is packed full of stunningly beautiful towns, cities and natural landscapes – so you really are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a destination. Those that want to walk in nature may love a trip to the Lake District, where you can discover vast lakes, trickling waterfalls and charming country villages. If you love the coast, you could head to Cornwall to sink your toes into golden sands and enjoy fish and chips on the beach. Or those interested in architecture could visit Edinburgh, Durham or Bath – with plenty of stunning buildings on offer.

What types of trip can you go on?

There are many different types of holidays you can enjoy in the UK, depending on the location you’re heading to. If you’re setting off to the countryside, you may want to get back to nature by setting up camp. You could either bring your own tent and camping equipment, or head to a ready-to-go “glamping” site. Or hire a cool campervan and stop at several destinations along your chosen route, taking your own food and drink to lower your holiday costs.

If camping or caravans aren’t for you, then why not head to a luxury hotel for the ultimate rest and relaxation? You could even hire a beautiful holiday property with your own private garden and kitchen to enjoy a home away from home. Ultimately, the type of holiday that’s right for you will depend on several factors, including your overall budget.

What should you take with you during your trip?

No matter what type of trip you decide to go on, there are a few must-have items for any holiday in the UK. The first is a decent anorak/raincoat and an umbrella. Unfortunately, the weather is never guaranteed in the UK, and even in summer you may experience some showers – so it’s good to be prepared.

It’s also worth bringing a good quality camera along with you to get snaps of the beautiful landscape and your family adventures. We think taking a camera separate to your smartphone is wise to avoid draining your phone battery taking photos. Finally, it’s worth taking a decent pair of walking boots or trainers. You’ll likely be doing a lot of exploring by foot no matter where you go, and your feet will thank you for wearing a supportive pair of shoes.

It’s fair to say there are many fantastic holidays to be had across the UK. Which you choose will ultimately depend on your overall budget, so it’s important to consider your personal finances to establish how much you can spend. You should also think about how far you’re willing to travel and the type of accommodation you’re keen to stay in. Why not start researching fantastic staycation destinations for some inspiration today?

Urbanista Launches “London” ANC Earphones for Sleek “Sound & Silence” Experience

Silence the outside world
or let the sound in
with Urbanista’s new active noise cancelling earphones

Urbanista, the Swedish lifestyle audio brand, announces the launch of Urbanista London, an active noise cancelling true wireless earphone, designed to put the listener in control. London is the latest in the brand’s true wireless headphone line-up and lives up to their tagline: “Designed for Life in Motion.” Boasting an in-ear style that combines secure fit and crystal clear, isolated sound with comfort, simplicity, and reliability, Urbanista London allows listeners to either completely block out the outside world or hear their surroundings without interruption to their listening experience.

Priced at $149 MSRP,
London is available in four stylish colors
and boasts full compatibility with iOS, Android and Windows devices.

A Sound Experience Under Your Control

Urbanista London is designed to provide the perfect fit and is comfortable for long periods of wear. Sound design for Urbanista London was developed by industry-leading acoustical engineer Axel Grell. “We have worked incredibly hard to perfect and fine-tune the sound of Urbanista London. The tiny details make for an earphone with incredible clarity and natural sound reproduction with ground-shaking bass and smooth highs,” said Grell. “The micro-speakers I have selected are at the acoustical heart of these earphones. Urbanista London boasts a wide frequency range with very low distortion, an important feature especially for an active noise cancelling earphone.”

Whether you feel like blocking out the noise of a busy morning commute or would like to hear what is around you, Urbanista London puts the listener in control. With the new active noise cancelling (ANC) feature, at the press of a button, users are able to completely switch off the outside world. Listeners can otherwise remain conscious of their surroundings while enjoying a strong audio experience with Ambient Sound Mode. This feature enables listeners to switch to a voice-enhancing mode while listening to music or podcasts, allowing outside sounds in and ensuring the ability to hear any surrounding voices, loud and clear.

Urbanista believes earphones should be intelligently designed and complement the user’s lifestyle. This is why Urbanista London earbuds have a built-in ear detection technology that is programmed to pause when the sensors detect that one bud has been removed from the listener’s ear. The music will stop playing completely when both earbuds are removed.

Inspired by the City

Urbanista London is packed with style and creativity, and its earphones are inspired by the vibrant and busy city. So that listeners can express their personal style, London is available at launch in Midnight Black (black), Rose Gold (pink), White Pearl (white), and Dark Sapphire (blue), and comes with a sleek and slim color-matched charging case. London has an IPX4 waterproof rating and is therefore protected from splashing water from any angle.

Designed for Life in Motion

Staying connected is easy with London. The latest in 5.0 Bluetooth connectivity means London is compatible with iOS, Windows or Android devices and allows users to have a voice assistant available at the touch of a button. While on the go, the built-in noise cancelling dual microphone allows users to make or receive stereo phone calls, adjust the volume, play, and stop.

London provides a playtime of five hours, and with four additional full charges from its case, for a total playtime of 25 hours. The indicator lights let users know when they are out of charge. Users can conveniently charge the earphones in less than one hour on any Qi-certified pad or via the USB Type-C cable, straight out of the box.

Anders Andreen, CEO of Urbanista, comments:  “London is a truly special product and we are very excited to welcome this model to our true wireless family. The small and ergonomic design provides the perfect fit that looks great, and with the active noise cancelling and ambient sound features, London is perfect for life in motion.”

Urbanista London will be available online at www.urbanista.com as of May 25 2020.

CHILDRENSWEAR THAT SPEAKS WITH A CONSCIENCE

A consciously colorful kidswear collection derived from ocean plastics

Quirky, sustainable, durable, and laced with imagination, Joseph & Alexander is fashion with a conscious. Specializing in childrenswear, specifically, shorts, Joseph & Alexander’s environmentally conscious pieces are designed to inspire the imagination and provoke curiosity. With each piece designed to spark an “educational conversation”, critical world issues and championing environmental action are at the heart of the brand. Operating consciously using recycled fabric from ocean plastics, eco-friendly ink, and reusable packaging, each collection depicts awareness-raising narratives of minimizing our environmental footprint and having fun whilst doing so.

Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman’s son, Eric, is already doing his bit to save the planet.  He was recently spotted on the beach in Barbados sporting stylish JOSEPH AND ALEXANDER swimming shorts.

Joseph & Alexander Founder, Alana Sorokin, said she felt compelled to launch a brand which made a “true difference” after learning of the devastating effect of ocean plastics and subsequently chose to work with recycled fabric created from plastics found floating in the world’s oceans as the foundation of her playful collections.

“It is predicted that by 2050 there will be more pieces of plastic in the ocean than fish1. The world has been aware of the detrimental impact of plastic in the ocean for decades, but not until recent years have communities begun to mobilize for the great collective fight to stop plastic waste from finding its way into the sea and waterways. Creating children’s clothing that really has something to say was part of our strategy to incite raised levels of awareness. Every Joseph & Alexander piece also tells a story, encouraging an educational conversation between adult and child around important world topics,” she said.

The Joseph & Alexander collections of shorts, polo shirts and loafers are designed for practicality to take children through from day to night, perfect for little ones who love to keep active. The combination of design and quality is developed uniquely from paper to print, and Joseph & Alexander works with a range of underground designers to create its eclectic mix of modern styles to suit all tastes.

For children fascinated with the sea and marine life, the Trapped shorts inspire depths of conversation. In bold blue, the shorts feature animal drawings combined with a net-like background to tease out discussions surrounding the effect of human activity and plastic pollution on the oceans. For budding conservationists, the Sea Activist shorts make a bold environmental statement with their design. The short collections, including MonacoSuperyachts, and Planting A Seed, tell stories of environmental awareness while remaining fashionable in their vibrant color ways and detailed drawings that kids will feel great in. Jacob (Joseph) and Alexander also host easy slip-on loafers Bleu Marine andNoir, alongside polo shirts in the finest Pima cotton.

 

The limited edition “father and son” shorts are designed with a nod to that special bond between father and son. The collection encourages discussion around meaningful stories that children can be part of, with the pieces designed to ignite their imagination or spark curiosity and investigation. With each piece “transitional”, father and son can sport their shorts from beach to restaurant and are available in designs Yeti & StarfishPortofino DreamingMonaco, and Planting a Seed.
