Happy New Year Christchurch!

We hope you have all had a fantastic festive period and that you are as excited for 2016 as we are. We have lots of things coming up this year and the offering in our stores is better than ever! There are lots of brilliant bargains to be found in the sales and plenty of new season products too. Come along to Saxon Square and rid yourself of the post-Christmas January Blues.


Posted on January 6, 2016


If like us you over indulged a little over Christmas, you know what? It really is okay! There is no point in feeling guilty for those extra chocolates and a few too many mince pies because let's face it, one of the best things about that time of year is the delicious food offerings. It is a time to relax and enjoy yourself after all. You can now move on and get back on track with a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. (And that still means you can treat yourself every now and again. We would be lost without our weekly treats from Costa Coffee, Caffe Nero and Greggs!).


To get into the swing of healthy living, a brand new Nutri Pro from Robert Dyas is just what you need. There are endless possibilities for delicious and healthy smoothies just bursting with goodness, nutrition and all of those things that will make your hair shine, your skin glow and your smile that little bit wider.



If you're a little unsure of where to start with your new Nutri Pro, WHSmith have lots of great books full of juice and smoothie recipes that will keep you going for more than just January. You can learn how to make the best concoctions for every season and event.



Now that the warmth of the Christmas lights are no more and the bright colours of the tinsel have disappeared, are you suddenly a little more aware of how cold and bleak it is getting? January is the perfect time to start planning your next summer holiday. Both Hays Travel and Thomson have plenty of brilliant prices on vacations all around the world. Whether you are looking for a week of all-inclusive family fun in the bright sunshine, a romantic escape to the Austrian Alps, a luxurious and relaxing cruise around Europe or a weekend city break away with your friends, you will be sure to find something perfect for you at both of these places.



Unfortunately, it is that time of the year when we are all at risk of catching a cold or a nasty cough. Come and visit our very own branch of Holland & Barrett and stock up on cough spray and nasal spray. Holland & Barrett also recommend that you nourish yourself with Vitamin C; this is one of the best supplements for keeping your immune system strong. These products together make the perfect winter survival kits to see you through the next few months.



Now that we have entered 2016, do you fancy a bit of a change? Scissors hair salon here at Saxon Square will give you the ultimate new do, perfect for the 'New Year, New You'! Whether you only need a bit of a trim or you are brave enough for an entirely new chop and colour, you can rest assured that you are in very safe hands at Scissors. The team of friendly and talented hair dressers will leave you with a new head of hair that you will absolutely love.



Are you planning on taking up a new sport for the Winter? Or perhaps you are a keen runner who won't let the dark nights hold you back? Priory Sports have got all the equipment and gear that you need for a wide range of activities whether you are starting out for the first time or you are a seasoned pro.


If you are heading back to the gym after a few weeks off, then there is nothing like a set of new workout clothes to get you motivated. New Look have a very stylish range of gym kit that will give you all of the confidence that you need to step back into the gym. The flattering shapes, gorgeous designs and colours, and matching sets will get your heart racing before you have even set foot on the treadmill!



Sometimes life takes over and we are just too busy to make time to go to the gym, to go for that run, or to start that new class. However, do not fear. Simply changing up your lifestyle a little can help you live a healthy life. Take the stairs instead of the lift, get off the bus a few stops earlier, walk just that little bit faster... all of these things can help to contribute towards creating a healthier and happier you. Invest in the latest technology and get a Fitbit from Argos. You can track your heart rate throughout the day, monitor your sleep patterns, stairs climbed, calories consumed... the list goes on! It is a great way to track how active you have been. Just completing your day to day tasks can rack up lots of footsteps and getting a Fitbit will keep you focused on staying active throughout the day, even if you can't make the gym.


Have a brilliant January and don't forget to smile!


Happy New Year Christchurch!
