Don't forget your toothbrush | Internet picks of the Week


With most of the restrictions now lifted in the UK and international travel back, some people are hitting the road again.

Even if they’re not already travelling, many are ready to start booking future trips. After over a year with little travel, this week we are looking at brands sending a positive message and harnessing the excitement of holidays to connect with people.

Chocolate Heaven

Recently, Simone Biles has proved that she is even more of an inspiration than ever. After suffering from the ‘twisties’, which gymnasts describe as a kind of mental block, and withdrawing from the women’s final to protect her mental health, she returned for the beam on the final day of artistic gymnastics winning a bronze medal. Biles has once again become a true hero for prioritising her wellbeing and her courage shows, yet again, why she is a role model for so many.

The Willy Wonka themed hotel

What the Cluck?!

Just when we thought we’d seen it all, KFC have launched a fried chicken-themed hotel in Shoreditch. Of course, they have. It opens at the end of the month and looks exactly as you’d imagine - there’s even a cinema room to watch “chick flicks” and a “press for chicken” concierge service. KFC are taking experiential to a new level, and it’s finger-lickin' good.

The House of Harland

Almost Mile-High

With thoughts of foreign travel once more on the horizon, airlines are starting to up their game to attract travellers back to the skies. Emirate has gone the extra mile, however – well, 828 meters – by advertising from the top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The ad features a real-life member of the airline’s cabin crew standing on the very top of the iconic skyscraper, using cards to promote Emirates. Whilst it may look terrifying, at 1.2m wide the space on the top of the building is still almost three times wider than most airline seats…

And here is how they made it!

Mickey here we come!

Living in Scotland we know we can get four season's in one day so we are big fans of the "hot holiday". This week we were delighted to find out that Virgin Atlantic will be running dedicated flights from Edinburgh Airport to Barbados and Orlando. 2022 is looking a whole lot brighter.
