TravelShades for travel sickness relief

travel sickness relief

As a child I, along with my younger sister, experienced travel sickness. Unfortunately she still suffers now. Like most childhood motion sickness cases I grew out of it. For adults it can cause concern when travelling in everyday circumstances but also when wanting to travel on holiday. Cars, boats, planes and trains can all be a struggle for suffers.

We all know someone that can read whilst travelling as a passenger in a car, with no ill effect. Yet others suffer terribly. It is thought that motion sickness occurs when there is a conflict between what your eyes see and your inner ear balance. Both sending different confused messages to the brain, leaving that feeling of motion sickness.

It can be caused when:-

  • Motion is felt but not seen
  • Motion is seen and not felt
  • Both seen and felt but detected by the brain in different ways.

Motion sickness can give the sufferer many different symptoms: dizziness, nausea, vomiting, cold sweating, headaches, extreme tiredness, increased saliva and rapid, shallow breathing. So dealing with this is not a pleasant thought when planning a holiday, especially your honeymoon.

Imagine planning your honeymoon around your motion sickness or never being able to go on a plane to your dream destination. Well, TravelShades are a new product that are designed to help relieve or in some cases cure your travel sickness. It means no more travel sickness drugs to take.

TravelShades are a sunglasses style product that has one translucent lens. It allows light illumination but you are unable to see movement. The TravelShades are also designed so they can be flipped upside down to allow for the other eye to be covered. By doing this it can help to prevent symptoms of motion sickness. Sounds very simple when you think about it.

TravelShades advise you to try them out for 2-3 days at home, before going on your journey. Putting them on for 3-5 minutes at a time, several times a day. This will allow you to get used to having the reduced sight but giving you the best chance of getting results.

There are 3 different TravelShades available to buy:-

  • Horizon and Horizon Junior models can be worn over your own glasses.
  • LoLight are designed for low light travel conditions, like night time.

TravelShades also provide protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, but as with most eyewear they should not be used to view the sun directly.

TravelShades

While wearing these glasses your vision will be restricted so no driving is allowed. It is recommended that you do not walk or run, consume hot drinks or hot food, be careful when handling fragile or breakable items and make sure you take care when judging distances.

TravelShades have an rrp of £39.99 for the adult models and rrp of £29.99 for the junior. With a 30 day money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose.

My sister is looking forward to trying these out on her next trip away, to see how they help with her travel sickness.

Wedding Cake Flavours

Wedding cake flavours

Wedding cakes are becoming more and more elaborate. Gone are the days of a 3 tiered fruit cake, held up with pillars, fresh flowers and a plastic bride and groom on top. There are so many different flavours, shapes, sizes and colours of wedding cakes available. Choosing your perfect cake is a yummy mine field all on it own.

Often brides and grooms have a very clear idea of either flavour or style. However turning up at your cake makers to be greeted with flavours you never thought about, can be a little overwhelming. I have put together my top 10 flavours for wedding cakes. Personally I am chocolate lover. When we first went to look at cakes we had a 3 tier chocolate cake in mind, covered in chocolate twirls. However, when the quote came back for £600 my husband nearly keeled over! In the end we had an 8 inch chocolate cake covered in a rich chocolate ganache, sat on top of 70 chocolate ganache cupcakes. The cupcakes were served as dessert with strawberries and fresh cream. When we married it was very popular.

My top picks
  • Chocolate with a chocolate ganache filling.
  • Classic Victoria sponge with fresh cream and strawberries.
  • Lemon cake with a vanilla mousse.
  • Raspberry and white chocolate.
  • Red Velvet with a chocolate mousse.
  • Chocolate with a raspberry mousse filling.
  • Raspberry ripple cake.
  • Champagne infused cake with fresh strawberries and cream.
  • Vanilla with vanilla mousse.
  • Red Velvet with cream cheese.

Every good wedding cake specialist will be able to provide you with samples to try so you know just how the cake will taste and what the texture will be like. The last thing you want on your wedding day is to find the cake doesn’t quite live up to expectations. So make sure you try before you buy, to be sure you get what you want. If you and your husband-to-be are unable to decide on one flavour why not have different tiers with different flavours?

What is your favourite flavour cake? Mine’s a chocolate cake…. yummy!
