1. Bake something yummy!
One of the best things about the festive season is that you get to eat scrumptious foods. So why not try your hand at baking something festive and fun for your friends or family? It’s a great way to get into the spirit.
2. Spend time with your family
Yes, they can be annoying and yes, sometimes you’d rather be out with friends. But don’t underestimate how special time with your family can be. It’s a must to spend some quality time with them during the holidays. And who knows? It might actually prove fun.
3. Visit a new place
If you don’t have enough moolah to travel, it doesn’t mean you can’t explore new sights and sounds. There are probably awesome places to visit right in your city that you’ve never seen before.
4. Party up a storm
Remember when you had to decline some party invitations ‘cause you were hectic with exams? Well, those days are over! It’s time to party hard.
5. Score some “me” time
Remember to take a break from the partying every now and then so that you can have some chilled time. Do whatever you wish in these hours, whether that means chilling under a tree with a good book, getting a manicure or heading to the spa for some TLC. You deserve it!
6. Get your shopping on
It’s the time of year to shop for gifts for loved ones, so hit the malls early to beat the rush.
7. Hit the beach
SA has some of the most amazing beaches in the world, so make sure you spend time at one of them. Surf, chill out with mates or take a gorgeous walk at sunset.

A girl needs to be armed with her camera during the holidays for all the spontaneous moments that are going to come up that demand being frozen in time.

It’s tempting to sit and watch movies all day, but do something more fun! The gorgeous days outside are begging for you to get up and do something, like…
10. Learn a new sport!
Playing in the sun is always fun as well as great exercise, so take up a new sport or hobby.

But make them meaningful this year! Focus on what it is that you really want for 2012, along with steps on how you’re going to achieve it all.
12. Make some new friends
It’s always fun and refreshing to meet some new people, so don’t leave the house unless you’re armed with your gorgeous smile.
