Goodbyes are always hard

Today is the last day of January, and believe it or not, unlike many others, I am a bit sad to see January 2018 go. Goodbyes are always hard for me. January has been a very long month as usual. It has gone on for so long, that at some point, I thought it would never end. I am always a bit reluctant to say goodbye to January because it means the new year has started for real, and I have to get on with it.

January started off slow and quiet. It has been full of ups and downs, with the fever coming around, leaving me feeling horrible. It was my birthday some days ago, and I had a good time celebrating with the family, not letting the sickness take over my special day. I have also been very busy with blog work and my other freelance jobs. Also, I finally got the time to list some items on eBay. I got so many items to get rid of, and I am looking to give many to various charities and sell the rest on eBay this year, so wish me luck.

I am looking forward to February and all what the new month brings. It is the Valentine’s Day month of love, so expect some lovey dovey posts on Fashion and Style Police. I plan to work hard and play even harder in the month of February. Going easy on myself is one thing I am working on this year, so a lot of me time has been scheduled to get some quality TLC.

What was January like for you? Do you have any plans for February? Do sound off in the comments section, let’s chat.

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.

Happy holidays!

It has been a very busy year for me. And the last couple of weeks have been even more busy with me trying to round off work, while getting my household ready for the. I have been dying to get some rest, so I am happy the time has now come. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas. Take some time to relax and reflect. And make sure you make plans for 2018.

Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I am seriously looking forward to spending some quality time with family members. And not have to worry about anything going on online. I want to be offline as much as possible and to be present to enjoy the season. It is the most wonderful time of the year.

I am also looking forward to the Boxing Day sales. The sales are usually so good so I am hoping I get good deals this year. I will be doing majority of my shopping online but I will also be popping into some stores to grab some bargains. I have a few stores in mind already. Will you be shopping this Boxing Day sales?

So here is me wishing you a very merry Christmas and a prosperous new year. Have a wonderful holiday. Remember the reason for the season. And be kind to someone today. Sometimes, the best gift you could give is a hug.
