As I write this we are road tripping from Chico to Southern California to ring in the New Year. We will be spending a few days in Los Angeles/Santa Monica for a Stylemindchic feature and then on to Newport Beach to celebrate a very special birthday on New Year's Eve. The theme for the party is 'black and bling' so we will deck ourselves out as requested.
(Packing a few baubles and bling for the party and I would love to wear my faux fur jacket but
with nearly 80 degree in temps in Southern California I may not need it)
(Scott surprised me at Christmas with this sparkly and unique cocktail ring locally made in Chico.
This will be a must wear for the party-thanks for the surprise love)
Do you like to celebrate on New Year's Eve? I do.
What's not to like about unabashedly wearing a little sparkle, maybe a stiletto, popping something bubbly and celebrating a fresh new year with kisses at midnight? If you like to sleep through the whole thing that's okay too. I've done that a time or two. If you are a 'celebrate everything' kind of person here is my go to list for a creating a sparkling New Year's Eve.
*Sparkle-chandelier earrings, shimmery wrap, a blingy cocktail ring and/or sparkling shoes are some of my favorite ways of dressing for the holiday.
*A dessert bar or gourmet cheeses/dessert bar is festive and easy. I've been seeing some hot chocolate bars around pinterest-a scrumptious idea.
*Something bubbly to pop at midnight. I use a silvery pen to write names or initials on the glasses. It adds a pretty sparkle and is practical too.
*Light some white candles to get your sparkle shining.
*Add a screen to watch the ball drop from Times Square NYC at the midnight hour.
*A play list of cool tunes that can encourage some impromptu dancing. We have an iPod loaded with our favorite party play lists and I also use spotify radio to set any kind of mood you are looking for.
*Invite in some friends (or better yet neighbors) to the festivities.
*Or make it a party for two.......Dress up, put on your favorite playlist and pop a little bubbly. Midnight kisses can be a perfect way to start your new year.
What are your plans for New Year's Eve?
Are you polishing up a New Year resolution lists like I am?
Now matter how you choose to celebrate I wish you a sparkling 2014.
Looking forward to more connecting with you in the New Year my friends!
PS-10 hours later we finally arrived!
I love LA!
*I used the BlogPress app on my iPad with keyboard to write this post while Scott was driving and it was a breeze.
