At this point it’s common knowledge that I LOVE a good party, from drinks & eats and outfit choices to beauty routines – everything is so crucial for a successful & fun night out! Coming through the holiday season I have just about everything planned out for what’s good on Christmas and of course the biggest party of the year – New Year’s Eve!!
With many planning their New Year’s eve months in advance the last things that they prep are what to wear and how to get home safely. Because we generally toast the new year with some bubbly or cocktails; my mother’s constant “safety first” is on repeat in my head in terms of getting home safe & sound.
So when Corby reached out to spread the word on #CorbySafeRides I was completely on board! For those of you unfamiliar with Corby Spirit & Wine Limited – they’re a leading Canadian marketer and distributor of spirits and imported wines. Corby’s premium portfolio includes the likes of J.P. Wiser’s, Absolut, Lot No. 40, The Glenlivet, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Ungava, Jacob’s Creek and Campo Viejo.
Everyone should plan to have a safe ride home after a night of celebration. That’s why Corby is making it easy for Torontonians to get home safely on New Year’s Eve by partnering with the TTC to offer free rides on New Year’s Eve between 7PM on December 31, 2016 to 7AM on January 1, 2017.
