Pink October at The Plaza

Wednesday 14 Oct 2020

Pink October

October is the month dedicated for breast cancer awareness. During this month, it has become quite commonplace to see a lot of promotional material related to Pink October and the consistent emphasis that women should screen themselves to keep safe.

Several institutions and organisations show their support towards Pink October by organising initiatives with the related themes including pink ribbons, encourage employees to come to work, wearing something pink, and baking goods with pink icing or finish.

During this month of awareness, we cannot emphasise enough the importance of ensuring that women screen themselves, so that any potential problems are captured early on. Whilst this month should be one of caution and attentiveness, it does not mean that our lady friends cannot indulge in some self-care.

At The Plaza, there are several outlets catered for self-care and retail therapy. In this article, we shall be discussing how you can enjoy yourself at The Plaza!

Treat yourself

At The Plaza there are some outlets dedicated to rewarding you and making you feel good. The Body Shop is one of these and boasts products which enhance natural beauty. This is done by using natural products, whilst promoting the well-being of the environment. A perfume? Why not treat yourself by visiting one of Malta’s leading perfumeries? You should definitely consider visiting Franks! Or else, perhaps some make-up? Lucy is the place for you, especially if you are looking for something adventurous.

Maybe you are looking for a new hairstyle? You will be pleased to know that you can achieve your desired style at Toni & Guy.

Retail therapy

The Plaza is also the place to visit for some good old retail therapy. If you would like to buy some new clothes, shoes or other apparel, it is definitely the place to visit due to all the outlets available. These include Miss Selfridge, Promod, Stivaletti, Oltre and Saltwater amongst others. With all these options available, you could for sure find whatever it is you are looking for!

And that’s not it! On Saturdays The Plaza is giving out small gifts to the women that visit, during this month of October.

Whilst Pink October is the month for awareness and keeping tabs on yourself, it should not just be associated with feelings of tension or uncertainty. Reward yourself with a treat at The Plaza!

Should you wish to contribute to this generous cause, collection boxes may be found at the entrances of The Plaza. For further information related to the activities of Pink October, please visit:

Wintery Sliema

Wednesday 14 Oct 2020

As we progress through October and the weather becomes a tad cooler, we slowly start to prepare for winter. We slowly transition for long sleeves and jackets versus summer t-shirts and flip-flops. It is quite common that when colder weather is upon us, many people would opt to stay at home rather than going out. In fact, it can be noticed that during the evenings, most of Malta’s streets would be less occupied due to the cold weather.

One of the localities which still attracts volumes of people even during the colder winter months is Sliema. Being one of the most popular localities in Malta, there are several reasons why people would still visit even when the weather is less permitting. In this article, we will discuss some of the reasons why people will still visit Sliema.

Christmas shopping

The Christmas season is quite synonymous with Sliema. It is the natural place to go to if you are looking to buy some presents for your loved ones. It is quite commonplace that during the Christmas period, shops would remain open till late to accommodate the large streams of consumers making their way to Sliema. Not going to Sliema during the Christmas period definitely means missing out on an enjoyable atmosphere and experience. Whilst you are there, make sure to visit the Christmas market at Bisazza Street. It is simply sublime!

Long walks

Sometimes a walk in the winter can do a world of good. Enjoying some physical activity in the cool air can do a world of good to clear your head. Where else better than Sliema for such a nice walk? Very few considering the beautiful sea-view and bristling activity. So, when the winter comes along in the next couple of weeks, grab your jacket and hoodie, and enjoy the Sliema promenade and the rumbling waves.

 

A warm drink

Sliema is ideal for relaxation and what better way to do that than grabbing yourself a hot drink and enjoying it at a coffee shop? Quite a cosy and enjoyable way to spend the afternoon with a couple of friends.

Dining and drinks

Sliema is also the ideal place to enjoy a good lunch or dinner and some drinks. There are several places of quality that can ensure an enjoyable experience and even in the winter months, visiting a restaurant in Sliema is a treat to look forward to.
