New Year's Eve Priorities

New Year's = the one holiday where rocking sequin, glitter-everything, red lipstick and drinking champagne is not only a given, it's a must. I mean c'mon, can a holiday get any better? 

I will say I don't care what my plans are for New Year's, all I really care about is the dress. Yes, the all-glitter-everything dress is really my main objective, numero uno, #1 priority. 

Let's be real, there are many perks of a holiday that ends (ahem...begins) with a champy toast at midnight.

24/7 Champagne Diet

In all seriousness, champagne is necessary to celebrate New Year's. I don't care if you don't like champy, add a little cranberry or a spritz of OJ and you'll be feelin' real good. So go ahead and stock up on Andre (I'm not picky) and some champagne flutes (the Dollar Store plastic flutes will rock your world...err...your drink and they won't break). **This Pomegranate Champagne Punch recipe is definitely going to make an appearance at my pre-game. There's really no question about it.

Sequins, Glitter, Sparkles, Oh-my

'Tis the season to rock and roll (and wear) in anything and everything that's sparkly, shiny, glittery and all things gorgeous. A holiday where rockin' a dress full of sequins is acceptable is ok in my book. If you're not into the whole sequin dress thing, give your nails a nice glitter mani. Your inner 5-year-old-who-used-to-take-ballet will thank you. I would also steer away from body glitter, but whatevs, if that's your thing then this is a no judgement zone.

Hellion on Heels

I love heels, I really really do, but there is a time and a place to where them. I will say I don't usually where them when I know I'm going to be knockin' back a few-too-many champys, but New Year's Eve is kinda sorta a heel-must. I know, I know, I will be drinking bubbly, but hey a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do and that means full on foot/heel-pain. I fully expect to be walking barefoot at about 12:05AM, but hey pretty hurts. 


New Year's is all about the dress, the champy and the sparkle, but yes, the kiss is definitely a #1, as well. Why wouldn't you want to ring in the New Year with a smooch on the lips by a babe?! 2015 is off to an amazing start if you can 1) remember his first name 2) get a picture of your kiss and Instagram it 3) aren't walking barefoot.

This New Year, it's all about you. Drink champagne, party with your friends, embrace your sequin dress and kiss many boys. It's totally worth it. Now go pop some bubbly. Cheers.
