It's that time of year for that well-deserved holiday and a week's relaxation is looming on the horizon. Nothing could shake you from your happy mood, right? Well, so you may have thought...
It seems that women find getting ready to go on holiday one of the most stressful experiences of their life. In fact research shows one in five women find vacation preparation more stressful than getting married!
But why this level of panic? It appears baring our beautiful bodies leaves many of us in a cold sweat, with over a third of women saying the prospect of wearing a bikini instead of a one piece on holiday fills them with dread.
The research by Special K found that many of us want to shape up to avoid the dreaded blushes while on the beach or by the pool.
With this in mind, how can we ensure we arrive relaxed and ready to begin a sun-soaked week feeling utterly confident? The answer is the ultimate holiday countdown.
Travel presenter Amanda Lamb has spent the last 15 years jet-setting around the world and knows the best way to prepare.
From setting a pre-holiday eating plan, to sorting through the holiday wardrobe before the night before, she ensures she lands at her destination with every eventuality covered. And in the following video the 'A Place in the Sun' star she shares her hints and tips for success.
With half of women spending up to two months getting their body ready for their holiday, not to mention an average hefty splurge of £100, how can we ensure this is time and money well spent?
