New Year's Eve is a holiday that builds up a lot of anticipation and excitement. Who will be your New Year's kiss? What fabulous all-eyes-on-me dress will you be wearing? When will you find your perfect buzz? Where will you ring in the new year?
This holiday always conjures an image in my head of me in a glamorous outfit (an ensemble of some sort of sparkle and fur), confetti and glitter falling down all around me, fireworks going off, a flute of champagne in hand and of course, the countdown from ten in slow motion. These last seconds of the current year consist of me searching the crowd for that perfect boy to give me the perfect New Year's kiss to mark the end of the last year and the beginning of the new one.
But that never happens does it? Well, not to me, anyway. More often than not, New Year's is like hooking up with a that hot guy you've been flirting with all semester. You've been thinking about it for a long time, built up excitement over it and then once it happens, it leaves you feeling unsatisfied and kind of sick.
This year, my best friends and I decided to ditch the anticlimax we call New Year's Eve and instead, stayed in and created our own little NYE party. It's safe to say no midnight kiss is definitely better than one I regret in the morning.
Makeshift metallic/glitter foliage crowns with blue velvet ribbon.
Wine & apple cider in thrift store bought mason jars, flasks & glass bottles.
This whole little set-up cost us less that $20!
HAVE AN AMAZING 2013!
