Going Solo This New Year? - Things to Do

The calendar will be turning to 2018 in just a couple of days ~ if you are going it solo, look at it as an opportunity to pamper yourself, explore new things and step outside of your comfort zone. There are plenty of things to do in Toronto (or in your city - check your city's website) when going New Year's Eve solo. Here are some suggestions for celebrating whether you choose to stay in or venture outside your door. 

Go Downtown:
The perks of living in a city like Toronto is that there is an array of things to do for any occasion. Use the transit system to get around - in Toronto the subway is complimentary starting 7 pm on December 31 until 4 am on January 1. If you don't live in a big city, consider checking yourself into a hotel downtown and celebrate to your hearts desire.

Check out:  Single in the City's one-of-a-kind Thai themed New Year's Party 
                   King Street Club Crawl - Why ring in the New Year at 1 club - when you can do 4 
                   Toronto's Largest Singles NYE Party at Rosewater - presented by Match.com
                   Nathan Phillips Square NYE Party (outdoors)

Make it an Impromptu NYE:

Host a Pot Luck:  We all know people who are going solo or couples that wait to the last minute to 
                             decide on what to do. Why not give them a call and suggest an impromptu Pot
                             Luck gathering. With all the to-go-meal options available at grocery stores these
                             days, no one has to cook - and a quick stop at the Dollar Store will provide some 
                             NYE trinkets.

Head for the Airport: On New Years Eve morning score a last minute ticket to somewhere you have
                                   been wanting to go (preferably a  hot spot) or let faith decide, go to the 
                                   airport and get on the next plane heading out. Think of the adventure!! Don't 
                                   forget your passport!

Consider it a Gift of Free Time:
Look at this as an opportunity to catch up on things you have been neglecting. Maybe reading, catching up on a project, watch your favourite movie, write a letter to a friend, do some decluttering, plan the year ahead! ~ look at as as just another day.

Pamper Yourself!
Whether you start NYE day with a trip to the spa or a massage, use this time to focus on you! Say good-bye to 2017 by cooking yourself an indulgent meal or ordering from your favourite restaurant. Get some bubbly (or if you are like me there is already a bottle chilling in the fridge); put on some soft music, light some candles, enjoy a luxurious bath , slip on your pjs and curl up on the sofa with a good book, watch movies. Watch the ball drop in NYC,  or fireworks from Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square, or Niagara Falls at midnight from the warmth and comfort of your sofa. Start the New Year taking care of you!!

Happy New Year Lovelies,

  1. Dearest Celia,
    What a great post this is and yes, there are so many Gift options
    For sure, while the frost does visit us, catching up on some reading is such winter bliss!
    Looking forward to some cozy evenings and also around table with friends and candle light.
    Wishing you a Happy New Year and stay safe during the year's ending.

  2. hi Celia, Happy New Year! I wanted to make time and visit today, ive bookmarked your blog. I love the ideas you have hear and think exploring downtown is a great idea.. sometimes it is easy to take where you live for granted, great to explore. I am going to listen to your self care idea and plan on going with my sister to a new spa in Feb.. for a facial.
    Wanted to wish you the best for the new year!
    kisses to the pups

    come and linkup if you get a chance ;-)

  3. Great ideas. Hope you had a good one C (or at least did something that made you smile) xx

  4. Again, I LOVE this post. While we can't do a lot of the "CITY" stuff, there are things I can take away from this to apply to this new year. This month is already almost gone - OH MY GOSH - so as my dad would say, "times 'awasting hop to it" - I am not wasting the rest of this year. Love you and thank you for the years of inspiraton you've given me (and keep doing).
