10 Do’s and Don’ts for New Years EveDec 14, 2017

We’ve come up with some simple do’s and don’ts for New Years Eve so you can have a sparkling night and enjoy all the festivities (minus any embarrassing moments… we hope).

Time to enjoy all the food and drinks before we start planning for all those New Years resolutions once again.


  1. Don’t plan on wearing an expensive outfit or white jeans, let’s be honest it’s bound to get ruined when you get rowdy (you’ll be able to tell in the morning when there’s mysterious stains everywhere).
    Do wear something festive to leave the past behind and bring in a new beginning in something cool (New Year, New You! We’ve all said it before) and can enjoy all those drinks and food.



  1. Don’t have high expectations.
    Do enjoy every moment, no matter where the night takes you.
  1. Don’t leave the house at the last minute and rock up overly late to the event.
    Do anticipate traffic – every Tom, Dick and Harry is celebrating so leave early to make the most of it.




  1. Don’t drunk text your ex! (we promise you will regret it the next day).
    call and message your family and friends you can’t be with.




  1. Don’t go to something that you won’t enjoy just for the sake of being out.
    Do plan a night with your favourite friends, food and wine! Last minute plans always turn out to be the best ones.




  1. Don’t get drunk before midnight (no one wants to be looking after you when the countdown is happening).
     have shots at midnight because nobody cares anymore.
  1. Don’t worry about eating too much.
    Do eat too much. Your new year healthy eating resolution (the same one for the past 12 years) can start tomorrow.




  1. Don’t take a million selfies and post a 200 second snap chat story.
    Do take drunk photos of others for future reference but most of all enjoy the night by being in the moment.




  1. Don’t drink and drive.
    Do have a safe way home planned (or somewhere to stay).




  1. Don’t leave your house without a fully charged phone and rechargeable battery pack.
    Lastly, DO splurge on the Mumm and Veuve!



Happy New Year everyone!
