The 5 Essential Elements of a Bachelorette Party

They popped the question! You said yes! Yay! Now it’s time to move on to the next important step – and no, who cares about the wedding – it’s time to plan your Bachelorette party! Basically, the most important thing you can do no matter who the bride is is to stay true to their individual spirit. Once you have that defined, the next five steps will be the icing on the (pre-wedding) cake.

Venue

Obviously you can’t have a bachelorette party if you don’t have a venue. So, step one; choose the location. This will come down to the personality of the bride and the theme of the event, so keep that in mind. Is it a night or daytime affair? Do you want one or more venues? Do you want food and drink at once place? Outside or indoors? How many guests are you inviting? Finding the perfect location to suit the theme is imperative.

Sexual vibes

Now, everyone knows the deal. A bachelorette party is meant to be a single lady’s final night of freedom. Regardless of the bride’s personality, there are cute, sexy, or risqué ways to add a bit of sexuality to any party. Novelty items, demonstrations, and costumes are all a great, fun way to spice things up. If you feel like you’re in over your head,

Activities

Every party needs an itinerary of sorts, and a bachelorette celebration is absolutely no different. No matter the magnitude of the event, it’s always necessary to have a few activities lined up to entertain the bride and her guests. Whether they’re relatively PG quizzes about how well the bride knows the groom, or more sexual like a strip tease – the activities will make the party. Organise a few, and watch the fun unfold.

Menu and Drinks

Bachelorette parties are often seen as a cliché event full of genitalia themed straws – but in today’s world you have a million more options (in addition to that). No matter what the theme, planning the menu and drinks ahead of time is an essential choice. Whether you want personalised cupcakes and cocktails, a wine tasting and cheese platter, or a sit down meal, the menu you plan will bring together the whole event and give people a great opportunity to mingle.

Guest List

Finally, the last thing you need to organise in order to ensure the success of your bachelorette party is the guest list. Obviously this will revolve around the general shenanigans involved and how comfortable you are with everyone being included. For example, if your future mother-in-law is a religious individual, you probably don’t want to invite her to a party with a stripper. Likewise, if you’re going for a more conservative vibe you’re not going to want your crazy friend from university at an afternoon high tea.

Hopefully, the above five steps will ensure your route on the way to marriage goes incredibly smoothly. Just remember – make it about the bride first, and then work out the specifics.

Personalized Ornaments for Christmas

Time flies soooooo fast. It goes like super sonic speed. It seems that we only celebrated Christmas a few months back and now, we are more than halfway throughout the years. That means, Christmas is going to happen in a few months already!

That is something to think about. At least for me. You see, for the last five years that Dindin has been with us, we thought of making the most memorable Christmas memories with her. And well, it worked because she had always loved Christmas. And now that Siobe is with us, it is going to be more memorable because there is more love to go around. :d

So of course, we are going to put up a tree this year. But I am not sure if we are going to buy a new tree or we will still use the little ones that we always had. hihi. Then maybe we can have personalized decorations? Wow that would be lovely. I believe that for personalized ornaments, we can easily order them online. If not, then maybe I can do something at home, like make some DIY crafts. hihi

Ohhhhh I am uber-excited just thinking about it! hihihi

Advance Merry Christmas! :D

3 Accessories to Keep Warm on Your Bike This Winter

Are the cooler months ahead going to keep you from riding your bike? The answer should be no as there is many accessories available now to keep you warm during winter. Here are three items in particular that will keep you nice and warm.

Arm Warmer Netti S/Roubaix

The arm warmer is a handy alternative to wearing a jacket or an under suite, as it covers you from your wrist up to the sleeve of your jersey. Both jackets and under suites can be uncomfortable to ride in, not to mention inhibit your ride, so arm warmers provide a better option for some riders. An interesting feature to the Netti S/Roubaix is that after you’ve set off and are feeling warm, you can peel the arm warmers off and store them in the pockets on your jersey. This you cannot do with either jackets or under suites, which can overheat you of course.

They are made from fleece back, Italian super Roubaix material. The arm warmers also has rubber grip bands to hold in place, as well as reflective logos to increase visibility to others and adds to the safety of the rider.

Dakine Exodus Gloves

Gloves are an essential part of bike riding, even if it’s not cold. But in the winter months this pair of gloves will not only protect your hands, they will keep them warm as well.

Like most pairs of bikers gloves, the Exodus’ are split into two main parts – the back and the palm. The back of the hand on the Exodus is made of 4-way stretchable nylon that keeps out moisture from the hand. The palm is made from Clarino synthetic suede and has 2mm of foam padding to reduce fatigue on the hand. The palm is seamlessly constructed in one piece to make the gloves more durable.

It features an adjustable hook and loop closure system that most riders will be familiar with. The Exodus also features micro fleece thumb panels and silicone gripper fingertips to give you more feeling than the ordinary pair of gloves.

BBB Comfort Leg Warmers

The BBB comfort leg warmers offer a great alternative to wearing an under suite or longer pants. They offer the comfort and support, as well as not hindering your riding abilities, that neither an under suite or long pants can offer.

This particular pair has been made with the rider in mind, with its four needle flat stitching, anatomic shape and rubber grippers it really is a comfortable accessory to wear during winter. It is made from thermo fabric, which consists of a make up of 11% elasthan and 89% polyester. It is vitally important to keep your engine on your bike warm, and the BBB comfort leg warmers available at 99 Bikes can do that as well as living up to their name, comfort.

So there are three reasons not to ditch the bicycle over winter. What is the most vital accessory for you over the cooler months? Are there any more suggestions to keeping warm when riding during winter?
