Working up the motivation to go to the gym isn't always easy, particularly when the sun is shining (and all you want to do is sunbathe in the park with an ice cold beer and a book!). But here at Savoo we can reveal the secret to getting yourself a summer body: chic exercise wear […]
World Cup fever has gripped the nation, but we are happy to report that June is not all about football- the wonderfully British Wimbledon championship starts on Monday. Along with Pimm's and champagne, Wimbledon goes hand in hand with strawberries and cream, so to celebrate the start of the tournament we have rounded up our favourite strawberry themed gifts for under £40… with some Savoo savings thrown in for good measure.
World Cup fever is spreading like wildfire across the country (particularly now pubs and bars have been given the go-ahead to open until 1am when England are playing late!) If you aren't sure where to watch the big game, read on for Savoo's round-up of the best World Cup Deals in London and throughout the UK; if you can't get to Brazil, bring the carnival spirit here instead.
A couple of days ago marked the one year point for the start
of the Olympic Games in London. One
whole year to go and it seems like we can't escape 'the greatest show on earth'
– TV, newspapers, websites, chat in pubs and bars all seem to, at some stage
during a session, talk about the Olympics.
I've got to be honest with you all and admit I am not a big
fan. I love sport but it seems to be
sport that is either team-based (cricket, football, rugby) or that revolves
around using a ball (golf, tennis). Athletics, shooting, archery, wrestling, swimming and cycling are all
commendable sports that, no doubt, require hours and hours of blood, sweat and
tears to reach the top but I just don't like them and that is reflected in my
attitude to the Olympics.
Sitting down to write this blog about Father's Day, I knew I was supposed to be all loving and gushing with happiness that I'd found a great gift for both my dad and my husband (the former from me, the latter from my kids). Instead, I couldn't help wondering (as I have done many times over the years) why on earth are men so bloody difficult?
It's a well-known fact that one of life's biggest trials is finding a gift for a man so, in a bid to find something that wouldn't be relegated to the back of the
bedroom closet, I decided to try and get some ideas by asking the
menfolk themselves. Well, you'd have thought I'd asked them to solve the
Reimann Hypothesis! In the end, I had just 2 overall responses - "I don't know" and "I don't mind". Not particularly helpful! I mean, gents, if you haven't got a clue what you want then how on earth are we supposed to? Well, now that you ask...
We at Savoo are the same as
everyone else when it comes to New Year's resolutions, a quick poll
of the office found we're guilty of the usual January 1st life
changing promises including a manic and short lived compulsion to
a) lose weight, b) get in shape, c) stay in shape, d) get healthy
and treat our bodies like the temple we know it has the potential
to be, and not the receptacle for booze and awesome tasting
awfulness we subject it to, particularly in the Christmas party
With this in mind, we're starting a PRE-New Year's resolution to
rock the good healthy lifestyle we know we're capable of, and save
money at the same time, so here's a look at some of the Health and Beauty vouchers we're going to use to fulfill our new
health conscious destiny!
