Enjoy Your Party

How to Really Enjoy Your Party

Posted on Posted in Events, Lifestyle

Anyone who has thrown a party will know that it takes a lot of work to organise. But when the party is in progress, the work still goes on, at least for the host. The host is responsible for making sure everyone is having fun and the drinks and food don’t run out. If you want to enjoy your party more, professional dj hire is a good way to do it. A good DJ will actually run the party for you.

Of course, he won’t be responsible for the drinks, but he will take control of the crowd and get them up on the floor, dancing to the music he plays. If he is experienced and good at his job, he’ll be able to ensure everything goes off smoothly as far as speeches and other things go. He can help control the mood of the partygoers by what he says and by the music he plays.

The host won’t have to worry about whether everyone is having fun, because the DJ will see to it that they are.  This takes a lot of the responsibility off your shoulders and you can begin to enjoy the party too, instead of just seeing that everyone else does. It will give you time to relax and chat to your guests. When hiring, it’s a good idea to ask your friends who they used and if they were happy with them.

Buying Wine

Buying Wine – Online vs. Locally

Posted on Posted in Lifestyle

How do you buy wine? Anyone who likes wine usually has a bottle or three in the house at any given time. This way they can have a glass whenever they feel like it, with meals or on its own; as a celebration or when they have guests over. Keeping a variety on hand saves that last minute rush to the shops to get something suitable for your occasion or for the meal you’ve created; have you tried pairing Wine and Curry?

There are pros and cons to buying online and locally.

Buying locally

Pros

  • Many people source their wine from the bottle shop nearest them for convenience, especially when it is part of their favourite supermarket chain.
  • You can make friends with the sales attendant and they will be likely to tell you when sales are due, or recommend their best wines.
  • You can wander around the shop and learn a lot by looking at the labels.
  • A lot of people like the personal attention of the attendant to help them purchase the right wine.

Cons

  • It takes extra time to talk to the attendant and they might be busy just when you’re in a hurry.
  • If you purchase a lot at one time, it is heavy to carry out to the car – and into the house.
  • Bottles are likely to break on the way home.
  • The local store may run out of your favourites.
  • They may not have what you want, especially if it’s from another country.

THINKING & PLOTTING
Getting work done inside an office complex is difficult, particularly when you have to think creatively. Stimulants such as coffee and chocolate
certainly can play into your work, but even then you find yourself stuck. I had a big breakfast which enabled me to focus on the day ahead. I’m
set to re-design and re-skin the RIOTTT site once more. I always found the carpeting to amuse me as I walk into our office, how great would it
be to create this pattern into a textile and implement it for some Riottt soft goods…ha! It will be a joke I can secretly enjoy. Oh yes, Kangol
sent over a box of hats in various styles and fits…much more to disclose later as “something” develops…
