Morning all!


Well, I don't know about you lot, but I have finally accepted that summer is over and have brought out all the electric heaters, hot water bottles and warm blankets (yes, I realise that I have been in denial for much longer than most people).  Let's not even mention the extra-lousy weather we had yesterday, let's get straight down to more of the festive fun that is coming up:


  • The next 12 Days of Christmas offer will be at Gibbons Company today between 12 noon and 2pm.  There will be an in-store DJ and lots of exclusive savings, including 40% off many items and $150 for a 4-piece Pierre Cardin Luggage set.  For more details, see


  • My Sereni-Tea are having a shopping night tonight between 5pm and 8pm.  Complimentary tea and goodies will be offered and you'll receive 10% off of all purchases.


  • Samadhi Spa at Newstead Belmont Hills are holding another Open House on Wednesday, December 22nd between 6pm and 9pm. This will be a monthly event until April. As well as a tour of the facility, there will also be complimentary mini-treatments, shopping opportunities, live Latin music, complimentary tapas and a cash bar. If you RSVP in advance, you'll be entered into a draw to win a Samadhi Signature Massage or Natural Facial (you have to be present to win).  To RSVP, email, or accept the invitation on Facebook!  **UPDATE**  This event has been cancelled.


  • It is a widely-known fact that the Scots know how to celebrate New Year’s Eve in style! Such is our enthusiasm for the last day of the year that we even have our own word for it (Hogmanay), with the Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party being the biggest New Year event in the world. Luckily, the Caledonian Society of Bermuda have stepped in to save you the plane fare and are bringing a little piece of Scotland to you in Bermuda! Their famous Hogmanay Ball will be at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess on Friday, December 31st. The event kicks off with an open-bar cocktail reception from 7.30pm with a rendition of Auld Lang Syne at 8pm (midnight in Scotland). At 8.30pm, we will be seated for a delicious Scottish-themed four-course dinner with wine included. You can also expect party favours, a raffle, champagne at midnight and DJ King Arthur keeping you on the dancefloor until 3am. Dress code is black tie and tickets are $175 each, including everything but additional drinks. Proceeds go towards various community charities. Ian Hind will be coordinating ticket sales so please contact him at You can also reserve a full table if you have a party of 10 to 12 people.  If you'd like to stay overnight, there is a special rate of $149.  Here's the poster.


  • The Barracuda Grill have brought back their Spectacular Lobster Sundays dinner special.  For the price of $49.99, you can have a 1/2 Bermuda Spiny Lobster, served either broiled or Thermador with an appetizer and dessert.  This will be available every Sunday night between now and March 27th, subject to local market availability.  Here's the flyer!


  • Anyone struggling for Christmas gift ideas for their other half?  Cambridge Beaches have some offers on right now that could be a perfect solution – here's the link.
