If like us you’re feeling a little blue about the approach of winter and don’t like how cold its feeling now never mind how cold it will get later in the season then it could be time to think about a last little get-a-way before the year is over. Whether it’s a night at a plush hotel in the UK, a mini weekend break in Europe or a longer trip somewhere hot, getting away for even a short amount of time can provide the pre-winter boost we need to keep us going. Taking a mini break is also a great way to get some you time or special time with a loved one so make sure you pack some extra special lingerie in your overnight bag!! The Hestia Basque by Masquerade is perfect for such occasions. The silky fabric gives a luxurious feel whilst the clever ribbon detailing conceals hook and eye fastenings at the back. This style also has detachable straps so it can be worn under a slinky top or dress with or without straps to provide a super flattering silhouette and fabulous cleavage. Attach a pair of sexy stockings for extra oomph!

There are some great UK hotels that provide the perfect opportunity for some all important rest and relaxation with amazing spas, indoor pools and plenty of opportunities to de-stress. For a spa weekend in the UK check out these links;




If however, you’re after some sunshine but can’t travel too far then head to Valencia. With temperatures still in the 20s, it’s the perfect place for soaking up some Spanish sunshine.

Lucky enough to have a little extra time on your hands? Then why not pop down to your local travel agents for last minute bookings and late deals, bring on the winter tan! We all need a relief from day-to-day life and our usual routine so why not book a mini get-away now, just remember to pack your bathing suit and some extra special lingerie to make sure you return feeling refreshed, re-energised and raring to go again!
