  1. Its just 45 mins away from London with trains every 30 mins or so from London Marylebone. Its about 20 mins on train from Oxford and about 1hr 30 mins from Birmingham. You get out of the train station at Bicester village and you are literally in front of the shopping complex. 
  2. If travelling by train get an open return ticket. More often than not one looses track of time in all the shopping. But whichever train you decide to take to get back start walking towards the train station 15 mins before the departure time so there is no rush. 
  3. Beautifully done is literally an understatement. I have never been at a more tastefully done floral piece of space. 
  4. The shops are all there, all the designers and some high street too. Bare in mind that the items in the shops are mostly not from the latest collections. 
  5. There are loads of eating options. Cafes and small carts to serve the hungry shoppers on the go. 
  6. Brace yourself for the cue outside the shops. There are lines for fitting rooms and payment too. Specially at big brands like Gucci, Prada, etc.
  7. The shops accept cash as well as cards.
  8. For shoppers from outside the UK you can get a VAT refund at the VAT office inside the shopping village. So do bring your passport for that. 
  9. If you are going to be shopping loads bring a suitcase or bag so its easier to walk around and carry. 
  10. There are loads of promotions throughout the year so check their site before planning your trip.
  11. The town of Bicester is worth exploring too. Its one of the fastest growing towns because of its close proximity to London and Birmingham. It has cute tea rooms, church, etc.

Another fun post today! The title of the post says homecoming for google search reasons but this post is really for any get togethers, reunions or events. A reunion coming up and the decision to be taken is whether to go with a date or in a group? Let’s talk about a few reasons why people would choose to go to their 'homecoming dance' with a date, with their squad, or go solo.

Going with a Date - When you are in a relationship, going to your homecoming dance with your significant other is a no-brainer. For couples, going to these celebrations will be a chance to enjoy some quality loving moments as you slow dance to the year’s most romantic tunes. Unless your partner is unavailable for the event, then you should have no problems going with a date to this special event. 
If you are not in a relationship but have been eyeing a specific person to share a memorable night with, then this could be your chance to invite them as your date. And this option is not limited to just the boys and men, as girls and women can also ask the apple of their eye to be their homecoming date. The risks of asking someone out as a date would be greatly rewarded should they say yes. If they turn you down, then you’ll have to deal with the sting for a while, but at least you gave it a try. 
Main decision to be made is the outfit, whether you'll like to  wear short homecoming dress 2018 styles  on showcase atm or can you'll go for an eye-catching long gown.  
And yet, while there are significant reasons to go to homecoming with a date, those who are not eyeing specific persons may always opt for group dates.

Going with a Group - If you don’t have a date for your homecoming dance, there really is no reason to worry. One sure-fire way to make sure that your homecoming night is one you will remember for years to come is to attend with your friends. Imagine all the laughter and the lovely pictures you can share with your homecoming squad looking all glamorous in your gorgeous colour-coordinated dresses.

There are a number of reasons why going with a group to homecoming is so much more enjoyable, including the following:

1. You don’t need to go through an awkward date night.
Yes, sometimes people think that they really like somebody but when they get the chance to spend time with them, they turn out to be the kind of people you would rather not hang out with. Dates might be really awkward that you don’t really get to talk to each other, but you’ll never have to worry about this when you are with your friends.
2. Dancing with friends is so much more fun.
These are just two of many reasons why you should not worry about going to any event like homecoming, wedding, get together, any special event without a date. On top of these, no date or squad can make you enjoy celebrations better than yourself. So, yes, if you would prefer to attend by yourself, then go ahead. It’s totally okay to go solo! You and your perfect dress can be the stars of the night if you go for it.

Todays post is a different one its about what shirts do women prefer on men. I have never talked about mens fashion on the blog but why not? Specially if its a post on women's liking on men. 


When choosing a shirt to impress, a few questions might cross a man’s mind: does it match with the trousers? Is the material of a good quality? Is it suitable for the dress code? Something that men should also be asking is – what does this colour say about me?
Research has shown that the colour of a man’s shirt can perceive them in a certain way, if you’re looking to come across as powerful; choose red. If you want to show confidence, always opt for black. With help from Charles Tyrwhitt, experts in gentlemen’s fashion and retailers of men’s formal shirts, lets investigate further and find out which colours women prefer on men.

Choosing the right colour

When it comes to deciding which coloured shirt to buy, there are some that are perceived more positively by the opposite sex. Consider purchasing one of the following coloured shirts on your next shopping trip if you’re looking to dress to impress…

Red

Associated with Valentine’s Day and all things romantic, red signifies love and passion. It is thought that the attraction to red comes from our biological roots – many animals such as baboons are attracted to the opposite sex if they display bright colours. To wear this on a first date might be slightly overpowering, however it does give off some vibes that your date might be interested in.
If you’re looking to demonstrate power and a strong social status, red is a good colour to go for. Research found that wearing red can actually boost the wearers own confidence, which will be a good thing during a first date for women who are looking for a man with some self-assurance. A red shirt can indicate that you have good health and are financially stable, two more things a woman may have on their checklist when looking for a new partner.
In a survey which explored the attractiveness of men in different coloured shirts, red was found to be more attractive than blue or green. This perception was a global consensus - so wherever in the world you go wearing a red shirt, expect to get a similar reception.
However, although the colour was linked to romance it was not associated with the wearer being kind or sociable – perhaps you’ll have to demonstrate these traits through the power of conversation instead.

Black

Although originally kept in the wardrobe for mourning, black is now worn for various occasions by many fashion followers. Similar to red, black can be perceived as the colour of self-assurance – 56% of women said that it inspired confidence. Other comments included that the colour black made the wearer appear more intelligent and sexy – perfect for a first date!
Black is renowned for being worn at classy events. Too much black can be overpowering, so if you opt for a black shirt you should avoid pairing it with a black jacket, pants and shoes too. It is a versatile colour and don’t be afraid to mix and match, for example denim jeans and a black shirt is a good casual outfit for many events. 

White

White was another colour that rated high in terms of clothing. It was perceived to be the least arrogant colour and instead gave off the impression that the wearer was full of optimism!
A white shirt is a nice and classic look for when you are trying to impress at a formal event. However, during research, it was the definitive white t-shirt and jeans combo that caught women’s eyes and was perceived to be the more attractive look for a man. 

Ones to avoid

There are also some colours to avoid when it comes to choosing a shirt. In many surveys revolving around the attractiveness of colour, orange and brown consistently performed poorly. They often are perceived as quite boring, drab colours although a bright orange shirt could brighten up an outfit nicely on a summer’s day.
Pink didn’t go down very well either. Only 5% of people thought that intelligent people would wear this colour!

Other tips

When choosing a coloured shirt consider the following tips too:
·    . Many men look great in a colour that matches their eyes, if you have green eyes perhaps opt for a moss green shirt- a popular colour this season
·    . Avoid wearing dark colours if you have a light complexion, this can really draw your skin tone out and make you appear paler
·    . If you have dark hair, opt for bright colours as these are likely to complement you more.
