Hola, so this week has been pretty grim for me, in short I basically had a lump in/on my boob... had a biopsy they didn't like the look of it so they chopped it out and now waiting for my results... ya de ya.
Therefore today I've decided to take inspiration from my boyfriend and focus this topical post on hangover cures especially in the summer. Now I know we haven't had much of a summer this year but these last fews days it has been pretty muggy in London. And last week my boyfriend and I ended up in Hyde Park watching Feeder (big love) and we both over indulged on our poison of choice. I woke up full of beans unlike him on the other hand, to his annoyance I rarely have hangovers where he has only to drink a few pints and that will guarantee a hangover.
So here are my top tips (aimed more for us ladies):
*** Stock up on water next your bed before you go out so you are prepared for the morning after.
*** Take a cool shower especially in the summer as this will just wake you up and make you feel fresh.
*** Even if you are on a diet... healthy salads never cure a hangover. Wack the bacon on and have a sarnie if you can't stomach a full fry up (or its calories).
*** Have a mid morning/afternoon nap and if you have to work try and sneak some minutes in on your lunch break.
*** Just remember your oversized sunglasses, stop that blinding sun and hide those big old bags hanging from under your eyes.
*** Summer recovery; go for a picnic with your friends... a couple of nibbles, copious amounts of water and sleeping in the shade = bliss.
*** If it is a super bad hangover blend up some bananas for a rich potassium smoothie to replace your body with the goodness it is lacking.
*** Want to exercise but can't handle the gym? Go swimming as it is all-over body thirst replenishment.
*** Don't plan too much for the day after the night before, you won't be up for shopping or doing the house work.
*** Finally have painkillers, a mini fan, vitamins and mouth spray at hand all day you don't want to be hunting for the essentials.
