Glitter = New Year’s Eve

Once finals are done and everyone’s back at home, it’s time to begin those New Year’s Eve plans.

New Year’s is always an exciting, yet, sometimes, stressful holiday. Learn to plan ahead and you won’t be disappointed.

First, planning that ideal location to bring in the New Year is always an important task. Nobody wants to get into an argument with friends over where you all want to rage for New Year’s. So, do yourself and your friends a favor and plan in advance! The locations can be somewhere simple, like New York City, the place everyone always wants to experience New Year’s Eve. Keep it simple, and throw your own New Year’s bash and have all your friends pitch in for decorations, food, and beverages. Remember, champagne doesn’t always have to be the expensive stuff.

Second, the outfit that turns heads. Be sure to not think about your outfit for the big night until you have your location planned. Try something new this year. Be creative. If you don’t want to spend money on that fancy, black, shimmery dress, look at the clothes you already have. The best thing to make you stick out is to try bedazzling some old clothes. Be comfortable, and bedazzle some jean high waisted shorts with silver gems. Pair any of these bedazzled shorts with your favorite black, or solid colored shirt and accessorize. Also, if you’re into rocking that “little black dress” this year, don’t be afraid to rock some vibrant, solid high-heels. Try neon pink! Bring in the New Year outside of your comfort zone.

Finally, don’t stress! This out of all the holidays should not be a stressful time. The best thing to do on New Year’s Eve is to go out with an open mind, and be ready for anything.

So, kiss prettier, be with your favorites, and be merry! You’re ready to bring in 2013!
