Now that we’ve all returned to work, the dreaded hangover is even more painful; no staying in bed until 1pm or having McDonalds for brunch. Recent studies have suggested hangovers may not be caused by dehydration as previously thought, but by an increase in cytokines which are chemicals normally released when your immune system kicks in. Either way, they are awful and no one wants one.

We all know the occasional declaration of ‘I will never drink again’ when experiencing a particularly bad hangover will never, ever hold out. Instead, let’s find some ways to make the day after a boozy night out a bit more tolerable.

The Classic Fry Up
Sometimes you wake up after a big night and don’t know where your phone is, where your life is going and at what time your dignity decided to leave. We’ve all been there. The one thing you do know at times like these, is that you need bacon and fried eggs, in fact, your life depends on acquiring these fatty treats. Even science agrees with us! Amino acids in the eggs and bacon help to break down acetaldehyde, which makes work for your poor liver easier and the carbohydrates in your toast will help to restore your blood sugar levels.

Exercise
Lol, just kidding! Go out and get a real hangover.

IV Drips
Mere mortals, save your time and skip to the next tip. This one is reserved for the people who have their hangover from drinking too many bottles of Dom Perignon on their yacht in the south of France.
For a ‘small fee’ the hangover clinic will drive over to you with a nurse and a whole lot of vitamins, some painkillers and anti nausea medication. To save some cash, you can go into their clinic instead. They are popping up everywhere, so to hunt down your closest clinic jump on the Google machine.

Sleep
Sleeping through hangovers, just like any other problem in life, means you won’t have to deal with it. Plus, you won’t have to send out those ‘what actually happened’ texts for a couple more hours.

Hydrodol
Although this one requires a bit more preparation, we’re confident that our Tipplers are up to it. You just need to take 4 tablets with your first alcoholic drink… see not that hard! These wonderful little creations are packed full of amino acids, vitamins, and herbs. They all work really hard to make sure you wake up feeling a fair bit better than you would be without them. Gearing up for a big night? Make sure you throw a pack in with your next Tipple order.

Your Guide to Hosting an Adult Sleepover For Your Friends

Who doesn’t feel nostalgic for childhood sometimes?

Childhood was a wonderful responsibility-free time when hanging out was mostly about spending time with your friends. What activity you did wasn’t as important. Well, sleepovers were the epitome of childhood, and as such, hosting one is the easiest way to get transported back into that pre-adult life before responsibilities and bills, careers, and such. But an adult sleepover can have alcohol too, so it’s actually heaps better. Here’s how you make it a great one!

Be careful about who you invite

It’s so so easy to get loose in the invitation phase and invite a few people who might change the mood you’re trying to set for the night. Perhaps your sleepover plans are at the top of your mind when you bump into an acquaintance at a cafe, and before you know it you blurt out “Wanna come?” and immediately wanna kick yourself in the shins.

Remember, you really don’t have to invite everyone, it’s not your 4th grade birthday party. Don’t be mean about it obvi, but it’s fine to only invite your closest friends.

Boring adult sleepover logistics


Make sure you’ve got enough sleeping space/food/booze for everyone invited. If you don’t, ask people to bring their own. We can also pop by with cold drinks if you’re running low!

Consider the mood you want to set

Ask yourself these two questions:
How do I want people to feel during the sleepover?
How do I want them to feel after the sleepover?

Let the answers to these two guide your choices and you’re a long way towards nailing an adult sleepover.

Make it a little magical

Adult sleepovers should feel a little like regressing back to childhood. Check your worries at the door and chill the fuck out. Changing up your place a little can help your friends do this heaps faster. How? Hang those fairy lights that 14-year-old you flipped out over, and drag your mattress into the living room. Cover it in blankets and pillows and make a blanket fort.

Plan some entertainment

Every friend group is different, and we’re not gonna pretend like we know yours. But what we do know is that everyone needs some entertainment. Whether that’s board games, karaoke, drinking games, face masks, dancing, chats, video games, or movies all night – that’s up to you. Just make sure you’ve got ample options available to keep everyone happy.

Plan super easy foods and drinks (and a TON of it!)

No one wants to be in the kitchen when fun’s being had in the living room. Easy does it, so stock up on frozen pizzas, entertainer spring rolls, garlic bread, and all the crisps and chocolate in the known universe.

For drinks, think premixers, wine and beer, or perhaps even a jumbo bowl of punch! Running low on alcohol is the bane of any adult sleepover, so be the Host With the Most and order top ups until 11pm!

No adult sleepover is complete without breakfast mimosas

Your gang awakes in the morning, either smooth skinned and glowy from a night of pampering, or bleary-eyed and headachey from one too many tequila shots, to a MIMOSA BREKKIE! Yep, it’s the best and not very expensive. Your mimosas can even be delivered cold to your door, so you don’t have to worry about fridge space.

Have fun

The best way you can make sure your guests have fun is to have fun yourself, and don’t get too frustrated if plans change or if people chat through the movie. Hey, listen, you’ll knock it out of the park.
