Brighten up your January with some holiday planning, featuring Virgin Atlantic,, ebookers & Flybe


Most people go off on their Christmas break feeling optimistic and ‘full of the joys of spring’ as they say.

But coming back to work in January is a completely different story, after spending over a week being lazy and eating pretty much everything, the first few weeks are tough. Instead of returning to the office feeling refreshed, you feel overweight and disappointed that the break is over.

My answer, as always, is retail therapy! Don’t spend your lunch hour looking out the window at the grey, cloudy sky, spend it on the internet planning your next holiday in the sun.

The best thing about booking in January is that a lot of the travel retailers have sales on. So not only do you get that ‘feel good factor’ that comes with spending money, you effectively save yourself money by choosing a good deal. And to put the icing on the cake, a percentage of what you spend can be turned into a donation for your favourite charity through Give as you Live.
