2 FROM OUR SIDE
Printed by Paarl Coldset
If its starting to feel a lot like Christmas, thats because Silly Season is here! Even traditionalists must relent today, and go fetch that tree. I know if I had to add putting up decorations to other last-minute preparations, it would tip me over.
If you havent ventured out, there are already great goodies, stocking fillers and treats in store... but if youre still stuck for gift ideas, just have a look at our amazing gift guide on page 12
Also keep in mind, that once in a while we all need to step back from the frenzy and remember that
this season is supposed to be festive; Christmas should be fun. I know some think thats just for children, but its also for adults to step off the hamster wheel and relish the life and people they work so hard for.
On that subject, a little shout-out to the AMAZING team at AWSUM news. Thanks for the incredible year, you guys rock!
Have a safe and fun-filled season of love!Tenille

Easy Christmas Gifts!DIY Glitter Mugs
Lately Ive been wanting to make easy and inexpensive Christmas gifts! I found these mugs at the R5-store and knew exactly what I was going to do with them! So I bought mugs and gold glitter!!
(cause glitter is always a good idea right?!)
The warmer weather is well and truly here and Christmas is fast approaching. You can feel the party vibe in the air.
At this time of year our healthy diets and lifestyles can easily go out the window as we overindulge in rich food and alcohol. With a little planning, though, you can stay in good health while still enjoying summer and all its festivities. Some pre-party preparation and a few tweaks to the diet can minimise the potentially unhealthy effects of partygoing.
Of course it is always best for your health to limit yourself to a couple of drinks when you go out. However, if youre one of those people who gets swept up in the moment and finds it hard to stick to two or three, follow these simple steps to look after your health and help ease those dreaded next day symptoms.
HERE ARE OUR TOP 10 WAYS TO PROTECT YOUR HEALTH.1. Eat before you drinkNever drink alcohol on an empty stomach. Always eat something nutritious before you head out. This will slow down the absorption of alcohol into your bloodstream. When drinking, avoid snacking on high-fat foods such as hot chips and pizza and instead go for healthier
snacks such as dips with crackers and breads, olives, nuts and grilled seafood.
2. Drink slowlyPlay it safe and stick to no more than one alcoholic drink an hour. This will give your liver time to process the alcohol properly and prevent a build-up of alcohol in your blood. Try ordering a nip in a schooner glass of soda water so it lasts longer, or drink a glass of water or a non-alcoholic drink between alcoholic ones.
3. Avoid dehydrationAlcohol is one of the major causes of dehydration. We lose fluid and important electrolytes such as magnesium and potassium when our body processes alcohol. Many common hangover symptoms including headache, dry mouth and thirst are at least partly caused by dehydration. The best way to combat dehydration is to drink plenty of water when you are out and have an electrolyte drink before you go to bed.
4. Up your antioxidantsDrinking alcohol leads to an increase
in free radical production, resulting in damage to cells in the body.
Increasing your antioxidant intake is the best way to combat this. Vitamin C, found in oranges and other citrus fruits, berries, guava, rose hip tea and parsley, is a powerful antioxidant. Other rich sources of antioxidants include berries such as acai berries and blueberries, green and white tea, tomatoes and other red and orange fruits and vegetables.
5. Take a multivitaminAlcohol depletes the body of important nutrients such as vitamin C, magnesium and zinc, and our eating may be less balanced during the festive season. Taking a good-quality multivitamin daily is a good way to help replenish your bodys stocks of these essential vitamins and minerals and to protect your general health.
6. Eat garlicGarlic contains an amino acid called S-allyl-cysteine, which neutralises acetaldehyde, a highly reactive by-product of alcohol metabolism. You could also take a garlic supplement.
7. Eat probiotic yoghurtEating probiotic-rich foods such as yoghurt and miso and taking a probiotic supplement daily will help boost good intestinal bacteria, which can be disrupted when you drink too much alcohol or eat lots of rich food.
Natural hangover helpersCoconut water: Naturally rich in electrolytes, coconut water is good for rehydration.
Ginger: Its soothing for the digestive tract and helps relieve nausea. Try chilled ginger tea with lemon or add fresh ginger to a vegie juice.
Nux vomica: The Nux vomica tree seeds are a homeopathic remedy for hangover symptoms. Available as tablets or liquid from chemists.
Stay healthy this silly seasonKeep your body feeling great with these top 10 tips for smart partying.

support in 2015! We wish you a very happy
festive season and happy new year
ROAD TRIP 5
ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORSRock, Paper, Scissors is a classic game that can keep people of all ages entertained while on the road. To play this, each player makes a fist and says out loud, Rock, Paper, Scissors, swinging down his or her fist on each beat. After the third beat, each player makes one of three hand gestures: a closed fist representing rock, an open hand representing paper or a V representing scissors.The winning player makes the gestures of the object that will defeat the opponents object. In other words, since a rock can destroy a pair of scissors, rock beats scissors. Scissors cut paper, so scissors beat paper. Since paper can cover a rock, paper beats rock. If opponents use the same gesture, the game is tied.
SPELLING BEE A spelling bee held in your car can offer parents the best of both worlds: Your child will be having fun and learning at the same time. One at a time, each person in the car takes turns spelling a word. If they spell the word correctly, they remain in the game. If they spell the word incorrectly, theyre eliminated from the competition. Keep spelling words until you determine which one of your road warriors is the champion speller.When selecting words, especially for the younger members of your group, make sure that you choose words that are age appropriate. You dont want to leave anyone feeling frustrated, disappointed or inclined to throw a road-trip tantrum.
THE GROCERY GAMEA good way to keep everyone in the car entertained and engaged is to play a memory game such as The Grocery Game. To begin, the first player names an object available at a grocery store that starts with
the letter A. The next player has to repeat what the first player said and then add another grocery item that starts with a B. For example, if player one says apples, player two would repeat apples and then might add bananas. If you forget a grocery item, youre out, and the game continues until the player with the best memory wins.If groceries arent your thing, you can play variations of this game with anything from animals to sports to peoples names.
