Christmas has arrived in the A|wear store at Athlone Towncentre and on the newly revamped www.awear.com! This festive season it’s all about party glamour with embellished LBDs and burgundy, the colour of the season, appearing across decadent 1920s-inspired flapper dresses and Grecian maxis!
Partying, shopping, and all the rush and excitement associated with Christmas is part of the festivities. However, constantly being on the go can take a toll on our health and for some people (some 20 per cent of us), it can trigger a cold sore outbreak.
One of the nicest things about Christmas is the whole process of festooning the house with winter greenery. Apart from the tree, whose scent is aromatically redolent of Christmas, there’s mistletoe (if you’re lucky enough to find any), the darkly gleaming leaves of the ivy, and the holly’s bright, jewel-like berries. Whether you’re artistic and nimble-fingered enough to wind holly and ivy into garlands and wreaths, or whether, like me, your usual approach is to balance holly twigs precariously on top of picture frames and door lintels, these plants can really add to the festive feel of a room.
