Accor Autumn Sale ends Wednesday

The Accor Autumn sale ends on Wednesday.  This slipped through the HFP net when it launched and there are only two days left to book.

You need to book at least 30 days in advance to get up to 30% off.  There is no limit to the staying dates so you might find a decent deal for next year.  Every Accor brand is included and the sale is worldwide.

Blow dry bar arrives at Heathrow T5

Heading from the airport straight to a meeting?  Bradley Smith can help you look your best when leaving the airport.

The celebrity hairdresser has opened a blow dry bar in the arrivals hall at Heathrow Terminal 5 right opposite the Heathrow Express exit.  Smith previously ran the salon in the Sofitel hotel at the airport.

The salon also offers threading (most painful thing in the world!), manicures, massages and trims for men.  Appointments can be booked on the Bradley Smith website but walk-in customers are also welcome.

    OT bits – just received notification from AwardWallet that my Virgin MBNA miles have now finally posted. I didn’t do anything re giving them my new number. They ended up posting about two weeks late.

    Thanks for that one the real harry. I was in need of a new simple PC. And with a monitor, it’s an absolute bargain. Well spotted.
