Stay Safe this Holiday Season

Happy holidays folks! How are we? Hope you all had an amazing Christmas? Mine was terrific. I had a swell time and received loads of presents. I have also missed blogging and writing. I have been off work since the 23rd and it has been a much-needed break. My holiday is still on. I am not back to business as usual until the new year. But I am slowly getting back into the swing of things.

We have been on the road quite a bit. Travelling here and there, and it has been incredibly busy over here. This holiday season has been super calm and it has given a lot of time to reflect. It is so easy to get carried away with the festive period and celebration here and there. But we need to always remember to safe and look out for each other.

This New Year season is a time to have good fun with your loved ones and stay safe whilst doing so. The staying safe part is so very important as a lot of us get carried away with the booze and even drugs. Being reckless is quite common during the holiday season. So it is important we remind ourselves of the things that do matter and where to get help if and when needed.

Here are 3 ways we can ensure we stay safe in the holiday season –

 

Eat before heading to the bar

Drinking on an empty stomach is very dangerous. It is the surest way to feel horrible and wake up feeling even worse. Do yours health a favour and have a good meal before having drinks.

 

Don’t have too many drinks

Drinking to stupor is never a good idea. So go easy on the drinks. Alcohol gets you dehydrated so water it down by having a couple of glasses of water in between your drinks. And avoid drinking too much and keep a good eye on your drinks.There are many resources available for anyone battling with alcohol or drug addiction so you shouldn’t feel isolated or suffer in silence. One of such resources is The Recovery Village, which offers a personalised addiction treatment so it is worth having a look on their website.

 

Remember to dress warm

It is freezing at the moment so remember to dress as warm as you can. Don’t leave the house with a warm coat and some weather appropriate sensible footwear. Especially if you plan to be out and about on the streets. It sounds like common sense but it amazes me how many people walk around in the middle of the winter night wearing very little clothing.

 

All these tips sound like common sense but I see many people everyday breaking these basic rules, especially in the holiday season. So please remember to safe stay as you enjoy the last 2 days of 2017.

 

How are you staying safe this holiday season? Do you have any sensible tips to share? Please sound off in the comments section below.

Happy holidays!

This Misguided Babe Power Eau de Parfum would make a great Christmas gift. The scent is designed to evoke a feeling of strength, confidence and femininity. It is a fragrance made for the woman who wants her scent to match her unapologetic no-nonsense attitude. I love it!

The key fragrance notes include a vibrant splash of grapefruit zest and sour cherry, sharpened with crisp apple and pink pepper. At its heart, orange blossom is accentuated with soft peony and jasmine for a succulent signature; while vanilla, creamy musk, playful candy floss and amber crystals combine to leave a provocative lasting impression.

I really like the sound of this perfume. If you are in need of a Christmas gift for a special woman in your life, look no further. Grab this for £28.

Firework Displays to Watch out for in the New Year

Christmas is in a few days and the New Year is almost here. I love watching firework displays. It is usually so beautiful. I remember watching some displays in Dubai last week and it was a magical experience. There are various great displays across the UK too so I will be looking out for them this time. Stagecoach, who offer unbeatable bus prices, have written about the top 5 displays you should be heading to, in time for the new year.

London

I love the city of London. It is one city I need to explore as a tourist but I have not had the opportunity. This amazing city is home to the Big Ben, London Eye and Buckingham Palace. In the past, you have sat at home watching the fireworks display on the TV – so this year, why not gather with the thousands on the Thames come the 31st December? I bet you would enjoy it even more.

The tickets are priced at £10 per person and can be bought in groups of four. A second batch of tickets will be released soon, so keep an eye out on the official website for more information.

 

Edinburgh

I have visited the lovely city of Edinburgh a few years ago. It was a short weekend getaway so I didn’t have time to explore the entire city the way I would have wanted to. I am hoping I get an app to visit Edinburgh again; maybe in the new year.

The Hogmanay New Year festival is one festival that caters to all, with so many various activities taking place on the day. It is a family friendly festival with activities starting at 1:00pm on New Year’s Eve. So the little kiddies can take part in some fun filled activities before bedtime.

You can get more info about what’s happening at the Edinburgh Hogmanay festival on their official website. Tickets vary in price — grab them before they sell out!

 

If you’re looking for something a little less crowded, take a look at some of top picks across different parts of the UK:

 

 

Newcastle

I visited Newcastle for the first time some weeks ago. It is a lovely city so I can imagine their New Year’s Eve event would be as lovely as the city. The most exclusive New Year’s Eve event takes place at the prestigious Vermont Hotel in Newcastle!

Go dressed to impress enjoy a Gatsby-inspired gala in the sparkling ballroom with jazz music and plenty of dancing – and don’t forget the vintage alcoholic beverages. With a view of the Newcastle/Gateshead Quayside, it’ll be a night to remember.

The tickets for the first-class event are priced at £159 per person. Book today on the official website to avoid missing out.

 

Manchester

Manchester kind of feels like my sister. It is 45 minutes away from where I live so I get to go into the city quite regularly. For a less crowded New Year’s Eve celebration, go for the most upmarket hotels around, the Malmaison in Manchester is one of the best places to celebrate the New Year this year. You are sure to get an evening of good music and grand buffet, featuring cooked roasts and local seafood.

The tickets range from £59 to £100 per person. Visit their official website to grab your tickets.

 

Leeds

Leeds is another city I have explored a bit but would love to explore some more. If you like the sound of a rooftop party where you can dance away under the stars, head to Angelica’s rooftop party for a night to remember. Starting at 21:00pm and ending at 02:30am, you will be entering 2018 in a great location with an electrifying atmosphere. Book your tickets now to avoid any disappointment!

 

Where will the New Year find you? Have you made any plans?
