You can’t live in denial anymore (trust me, I tried), the holiday season is upon us. It means that soon enough, shopping centers will be blasting very cheerful Christmas music in your ears while trying to blind you with colorful lights and tinsels. Since we know getting into the holiday spirit can be hard, here are a few ways to get into the right set of mind for the season.


Make some fancy cocktails at home

There’s something particularly pleasurable about a cocktail designed for the colder months and the Old Fashioned fits right into that category .Even if it is quite easy to make at home, it doesn’t mean that you can’t save some time by using a ready-to-serve option. This season, J.P. Wiser’s is introducing an exciting new product, the Old Fashioned Whisky Cocktail, aiming to bring the experience of the classic whisky cocktail from behind the bar to more convenient occasions without having to leave the comfort of your place. All you have to do is to pour it over ice, stir and add an orange peel.


Find the perfect holiday dress

Picking up the right dress is never an easy task, especially around Christmas, when time seems to fly at a rapid pace. Thankfully, Loue 1 Robe is there to help! From cocktail dresses to stunning full-length gowns, they offer dresses for rent at an affordable cost. By appointment only, clients go to Sarra Ghribi’s showroom to find the perfect outfit for any special occasion. Time to embrace your glamorous side, since it is sartorially acceptable to wear as much festive sparkle as you can manage around the holidays!


Buy some bake goods

Sweet treats season is officially here, and while not all of us have the time to bake, most of us are still interested in the finished delicious product. To stay on the healthy side, we strongly suggest you stop by Petit Lapin, a bakery business in Westmount specialized in allergy-free, lactose-free and gluten-free desserts. Owned by Viviane Nguyen, a real boss lady, Petit Lapin just opened a second store on Bernard Avenue, allowing you to double the pleasure.


And of course…turn on the holiday tunes

Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit faster than music. There is something about those familiar notes that bring you warm and fuzzy Christmas feeling. But to have maximum effect, you’ve got to listen to the good stuff, the classics. Time to rediscover all those favourite festive pieces of music!
