Annette's websites of the week

first choice logoFirst Choice- If you’ve got the January blues you’ve probably started to think about a holiday escape. A holiday lover myself, who isn’t? I’m regularly found looking at getaways on the internet where there are many travel sites all offering different tropical deals.

Recently all-inclusive holiday packages have become increasingly popular amongst holiday makers. I recently went on a short break to Tenerife on an all-inclusive deal, which worked wonderfully as all food and drink we’re included in my package. Meaning I avoided a hefty bill at the end of a fabulous weekend.

Catching on to the trend travel chain First Choice now exclusively offer all-inclusive packages (as of May 2012 they will only sell all-inclusive deals) to their customers. Covering the most popular holiday destinations including Spain, the Canary Islands and further afield Mexico and the Caribbean I think that this is a rather clever business move.

Their website has recently been readjusted to publicise their very best all-inclusive packages and it’s most definitely worth browsing if you’re researching a luxury break whatever your holiday requirements; family holiday, couples retreat, group break.

Top Tip: Utilise all of the tools on the site. Explore the ‘Destinations’ to get a better idea of where you would like to travel too. Then use ‘Search’ to find a holiday which meets your budgets, destination, hotel type etc…

Save Something For the Weekend Facebook Campaign- What sad news to hear that the BBC have decided to axe Sunday morning television show Something For the Weekend.

The easy watching show hosted by Tim Lovejoy, Louise Redknapp and celebrity chef Simon Rimmer is one which I regularly tune after I’ve taken the dogs for a walk, and I have to say that it’s perfect Sunday morning TV.

With weekly guests ranging  from musicians, actors, sports personalities and even scientist (Brian Cox is a big supporter) the show has brilliant variety. With cooking segment, cocktail tutorials and brilliantly banter between guests and presenters it genuinely is a pleasure to watch and will be greatly missed.

Disgruntled fans have taken to Facebook creating ‘Save Something For The Weekend From The Axe’ campaign with the hope that enough support will sway the BBC to recall the programme from exile.

I’ve joined the group which has a currently total of 24, 600 likes (wow). Fingers crossed the campaign will have a positive impact and bring back Something For the Weekend. Show your support by clicking ‘like’ – click here.

Slimming Earlier this week I wrote a blog ‘New Year, New You’ explaining why the new year is the perfect chance to start fresh especially if you’re thinking about getting fitter and healthier.

I’ve re-joined Slimming World to lose weight and regain confidence in healthy eating. Although I follow the Slimming World system through the tradition method of visiting a weekly session, I have also visited the Slimming World website for recipe inspiration and encouragement from other members.

The site seemed incredibly appropriate this week as I’ve seen success with my own weight loss. My recommendation would be to use the site as a tool which can aid your progress. I like to find ideas but for new recruits or people who are thinking about joining Slimming World the website is packed with support and gives ideas of what you will be letting yourself in for. The free 7 day menu is a great example of how easy the Slimming World plan is and worth reading if you want to become healthier.

Remember that you can follow Slimming World Online- more information here.
