How are you all? So much has been happening since my last post! The World Cup has just begun, Super Eagles 2018 World Cup Jersey sold out in half an hour, Coachella pre-sale tickets have already sold out (if you are going next year make sure to read my post on Coachella 2018 – What is it? Booking Flights, Festival Tickets & Hotel) and Royal Ascots is just around the corner…
I went to the Royal Ascots in 2017, an event that brings out the most elegant outfits and engages people from around the globe. The event was absolutely amazing, I enjoyed every single minute of it and I thought it would be good to share my top tips on the day itself!
- Wear comfy shoes
This is no joke! The friend I went with hates people taking their shoes off during a day or night out, so I wore my old shoes to ensure comfortability However, I suck at wearing heels and at one point had to take them off. Luckily my friend felt sorry for me and didn’t complain, but my advice for this type of event would be get yourself a pair of wedges. They don’t look as nice as heels with a dress, but they are so much comfier.
- Don’t be afraid to gamble
I was the person that was afraid to gamble, which never made any sense as I was only going to the ROYAL ASCOTS!!!! Now I am not saying spend all your hard earn cash! Budget! Set yourself a budget and stick to it because, boy oh boy you may just get carried away.
- Have a big breakfast
Make sure you give yourself a good start to the day with a big breakfast, especially if you’re planning on drinking. I caught the train with my friend from Waterloo Station. As it was Royal Ascot day, the station was heaving with people in elegant dresses and suits, so I didn’t have time to pick up some food. By the time we got there all I wanted to do was eat and the food is not cheap so make sure you fill your stomach up.
- Buy a Race Card
Silly me! I didn’t buy a race card not realising it was a big mistake. My friend was the smart one and paid the extra £4.50, which I believe helped her on the day. The race card gives you all the information you need to know about the races, horses and jockeys and anything else that is happening on the day.
- Portable Charger
Ladies and Gentlemen, please please don’t forget your portable charger. It is so needed on a day like this!
Hope my tips do help and if you are planning to go don’t forget to add your tips to comment section below.
