We all like to go out, have a few drinks and a dance with our girlie mates. In fact that's probably what the majority of you will be doing this weekend. But with drink spiking and date raping on the increase, these simple nights often turn into scary disasters that are putting more and more girls in danger. How many of you know someone who's had their drink spiked? I do.
When I was at Uni I went out to a notoriously messy club with my flatmates, meaning we were gonna get annihilated and dance the night away. The night took a suprising twist when after 30 minutes my housemate hadn't come back from the bathroom. When we went to find her the toilet door was locked, she was collapsed on the floor and there was no way of getting her out - she couldn't even stand up or talk. It was one of the scariest nights I've ever had. Eventually we managed to talk her round to pulling the latch herself, but then it was our job to actually wedge open the door and attempt to get her home.
Since then I've had my drink spiked on two occasions. Both times I was in a familiar environment surrounded by friends, once in my local pub and once at a house party. One minute I was fine and dandy, the next I couldn't talk, could barely stand and once I managed to get home (god knows how) I've never been more ill in my life. This is the point - it's not just when you go to a dodgy club or unknown bar that this can happen; it's not necessarily going to be that weird guy eying you up at the bar, it could be the hot friend of your mate. Just because you think you're street-wise you aren't necessarily aware of your surroundings.
This is why I'm so pleased that someone has realised this is a serious and growing issue and decided to do something about it. '2 Love My Lips' is a new lipgloss brand which not only make fab glosses in a range of perfect colours, but each gloss comes with its own 'drink testing kit' so you can feel safe and secure wherever you go. All you have to do it drop a small amount on each end of the litmus paper and if it changes colour someone's trying to do bad things! Easy peasy. Not only do you have a fab gloss, but you're ultra safe and ready for a night out.
The glosses are available in five colours, ranging from clear right through to bright pink, and cost only £9.99 - a small price to pay for your safety. For more information check out their website: http://2lovemylips.co.uk/
