Forget FOMO, this summer is all about GOMO

As a trainee teacher I have fully experienced FOMO (fear of missing out). Over the past three years, I have spent lots of hours preparing, planning etc. whilst my friends have been otherwise occupied with something more fun.  Scrolling through Facebook seeing picture after picture is when FOMO really kicks in.

Now that I have finished university I have vowed to make this summer more about GOMO (going out more often) and instead of becoming a lazy slob, I want to make this summer one to remember.

If you are a follower of Skinny Jeans you will know that there is nothing I like more than discovering affordable things. My aim this summer is to fully experience GOMO whilst not breaking the bank. I have put together a few ideas below of how you can fully embrace GOMO this summer for a small cost.


One of my favourite things to do is get a group of friends together, jump in the car and head off on a magical adventure. The more people you get involved the cheaper it is for petrol (.....or gas) and there are so many amazing places you can go. Grab a mp and start circling. Personally I love a good day out at the beach or a national park.


Even at the age of 21 nothing excites me more then a good picnic blanket and a range of good food. Head down to your nearest store and grab a selection of finger foods: Sausage rolls, crisps, cocktail sausages, bits of cooked pizza, CAKES! Or if your cooking ability is vastly better than mine make your own tasty treats to go with you.


My love of food means I love trying new places to eat. Make a list of all the new places you would like to try then hop on the internet and see if you can find a good old voucher or deal. There are so many out there. One of my favourites if half price Mondays at Slug and Lettuce. Catching up with your favs on their patio whilst munching away on some good food is a great way to pass some hours.


Although this can sometimes be on the pricer side, picking up tickets to a concert, show or sporting event is a great way to get out and about. However there are all sorts of events out there. This summer I am aiming to go to food and drink festivals (surprise...surprise). Eventbrite is a great place to find and buy tickets to all sorts of different events. It even allows you to plan your own events!

I hope you enjoyed these different ideas for GOMO. I would love to hear your plans and ideas as well. Tweet me at @skinnyjeansblog using the #GOMO
