Tips to Stay Safe at Night

Recently my boyfriend got mugged walking home at 9:00pm. YES, only 9:00 at night! They elbowed him in the face, kicked him a few times, and took his backpack.

After this event I started thinking more about my safety at night and wanted to share some tips with you to stay safe while getting home at night.
