How To Have The Perfect New Year's Eve: A Guest Post from Brandi

I know, New Year's Eve was last night, but I just had to share these fabulous ideas with all of you. I am thrilled to introduce you all to one of my favorite new blogging Momma's. Brandi writes over at Brooklyn State of Mind about being a wife, mother, and all around fabulous lady. Be sure to check her out!

Hi Y'all! I'm Brandi and I blog over at Brooklyn State of Mind

I blog about being a wife, mama, yoga lover, book nerd, and domestic goddess in training. It might sound like a lot to take on at once, but hey women are pretty damn amazing right?

Anyways, I am so thrilled to be taking over Pam's little slice of internet heaven here! I've been reading her since way before I started my own blog and she is simply fantastic. Now that Christmas is over we have one more big holiday to look forward to... New Years! This year I have some pretty grandeois plans {last year I was very pregnant and very grouchy whomp whomp}. I thought that I would give y'all my three *fail proof* tips to a great New Years Eve!

1) Wear a major statement piece
-This doesn't necessarily have to be jewelry. You can wear bold heels or a sparkly dress, just make sure you have on something that pops. And most importantly, something that you feel GREAT wearing. Wherever you go, you are bound to be surrounded by glitter and sequins, it will most likely look like a disco ball exploded, so stand out in your own way.

2) Find the perfect location
-Your perfect location could be anything from a crowded nightclub to your own comfy couch. As long as you have a relaxed environment and good company it doesn't matter where you countdown to midnight! This year

3) Have Fun
-Sounds pretty dumb right? I find that I usually put huge expectations on New Years Eve and it's always a bit of a let down. So now my only expectation is to have fun! If that's your only goal then your night is bound to be a success.

And what New Years is complete without a fun cocktail? So I wanted to share my favorite festive drink.

Shake and enjoy!

PS- This is totally not my image. I have poor photography skills so I turned to my trusty Google to make it look as appealing as it tastes.
