I love the rich and vibrant night life of Nairobi with its many bars and restaurants, where the music never stops, and every so often I let my hair down and go out partying with friends, as you may have seen on my snapchat (@Silvianjoki). I’ve partnered with Ciroc Premium vodka to share with you some simple tips that I follow on a girls night out.

– My night-out make up is always bold, but my scent soft. Bring out the bronzer, falsies and highlighter! However, I find that Overpowering perfume is not very pleasant in closed rooms.
-Dress to impress but be comfortable. Wear a comfortable pair of heels that you can dance in and which can help you survive long hours that may be spent standing in a club or at a bar.
-Don’t drink on an empty stomach. I plan my evening well by eating a filling meal in advance.
-Hit the club early and go home early if you can. You can easier secure a table you like, and the service is better in a less crowded bar.
-Guard your phone and other valuables well. I ensure that my clutch not only compliments my outfit, but also keeps my things safe and secure and can be tucked under my arm.
-Set a budget and carry some small notes; that will make it easier for you when ordering drinks.
– Order a bottle of water along with your first drink. Drinking as much water as alcoholic drinks throughout the night keeps you hydrated and less prone to hangovers. I try to stick to one kind of liquor, or at least stick to the same color liquor and space my drinks with plenty of water or juice in between. But generally I know just about how much alcohol my body feels comfortable consuming, and when it whispers “stop” I listen.
-Use social media prudently. Think about what you are going to post or say during a night out. Drunken tweets may not be fun for you to discover the following day. And try to post pictures earlier in the night, when everyone looks their best 🙂
-Take off the makeup before you go to bed. You might not feel like doing it, but next morning you’ll be happy you did. Your skin and sheets will thank you.
With these few tips, let’s party in style this coming weekend! come and party with me and all the top celebrities and DJ’s in the country at the CIROC party this Saturday night. Find the details on the poster below. And as always! I cannot wait to meet you !
