August in London: Continuing the Summer Bliss at Home

As the summer season unfolds in London, many of us find ourselves reminiscing about our sun-drenched holidays abroad. The golden beaches, the balmy evenings, the sheer joy of being on vacation. But who says that euphoria has to end once you’re back in the UK? Even with the unpredictable British weather, there’s a wealth of experiences waiting to be enjoyed, ensuring that the holiday spirit lingers on.

Self-Care: A Continuation of Your Holiday Indulgence

On holiday, we often indulge in spa treatments, massages, and all sorts of pampering. Why should that stop once we’re back? Think of self-care as an extension of your holiday. Remember the airplane analogy about securing your own oxygen mask before assisting others? It’s a poignant reminder that self-care isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity.

Almost Essential recognises the importance of self-care and has curated a selection of beauty treatments to ensure you continue to feel pampered. From non-invasive skincare treatments that leave your skin with that holiday glow to therapeutic massages that melt away the post-vacation blues, there’s something for everyone.

For those with children, the at-home spa party is a delightful treat. It’s a win-win: your girls get to indulge in a unique spa experience, and you get to relax and rejuvenate without leaving your home. And for those moments when you crave a sanctuary of calm, the House of Kalmar in Belgravia offers holistic massages that are akin to a mini-holiday for your senses.

Nourish Your Body: Savour the Flavours of Summer

One of the joys of being on holiday is the food. The fresh salads, the fruit cocktails, the delightful local dishes. Back home, it’s easy to slip into old habits and reach for comfort foods, especially when the weather is gloomy. However, these often lead to energy slumps. Instead, let’s continue the holiday eating habits by opting for fresh, nutritious foods.

Nosh Detox, available through Almost Essential, is a godsend for those looking to continue their healthy eating habits. Their detox plans cleanse your body, boost your energy, and ensure you’re nourished from the inside out. The best part? They deliver right to your doorstep, allowing you to enjoy the summer flavours without any hassle.

Celebrate Summer with Friends: The Joy of Gathering

Summer, whether it’s on a tropical beach or in the heart of London, is all about connection. It’s the season of barbecues, garden parties, and long, languid dinners that stretch into the night. The sound of laughter, the clinking of glasses, the shared stories – these are the moments that define our summer gatherings.

While the British weather can sometimes be a tad unpredictable, it shouldn’t put a damper on your hosting aspirations. In fact, it offers an opportunity to get creative with your indoor spaces. With the vibrant table settings from Casa by JJ, you can bring the colours and warmth of summer right into your dining room. Their range of tableware, with its rich hues and intricate designs, can turn even the simplest meal into a festive affair, making every gathering feel like a special occasion.

Of course, no gathering is complete without the right beverages. The Chene Bleu Wines, particularly their crisp and refreshing rosé, transport you straight to those sun-drenched vineyards in the South of France. It’s not just a wine; it’s an experience, one that evokes memories of summer holidays and leisurely vineyard tours.

Consider incorporating some exquisite pieces from Mila London . Their collection, available on Almost Essential, includes a range of beautifully crafted items that add a touch of unique handcrafted elegance to any setting.

In essence, summer gatherings are less about the location and more about the company, the atmosphere, and the shared experiences. With the right touches, even a simple meal at home can feel like a grand summer soiree. So, embrace the season, invite your friends over, and let the joy of gathering shine through.

Retail Therapy: Bringing the Holiday Vibes Home

The souvenirs, the unique finds, the joy of shopping in a foreign land. If you’re missing the retail therapy from your holiday, Almost Essential’s ‘New In’ section is your treasure trove. Continuously updated, it boasts a curated collection of beauty products, home decor, and unique gifts. Each item is handpicked, ensuring you’re only getting the best. Whether you’re looking to recreate a holiday experience, find a gift for a loved one or find the perfect hostess gift, one of our favourites being the mindfulness bowls, there’s something for everyone.

In conclusion, summer in London might be different from a beach holiday, but it’s filled with its own set of joys. With a little creativity and the offerings from Almost Essential, you can continue the holiday euphoria right at home. After all, holidays are a state of mind, and with the right approach, every day can feel like a sun-soaked getaway.
