Little Things #6

My week in pictures- Sleeping late, resting, walking around town and seeing family is my idea of a relaxing vacation.

Ma semaine en photos- Faire la grasse matinée, se reposer, se promener en ville et voir ma famille est pratiquement tout ce que j'ai fait ici.

New Years Eve Outfit Ideas

Hey everyone so here are some ideas to base your New Years Eve outfit on. First off a few things that make a New Years Eve outfit: sparkles; bright colors; black with a neon accent; flashy colors or material; SPARKLES! New Years Eve gives you an excuse for so many things: wearing crazy clothing; going to crazy parties; and kissing people :P

The Perfect New Years Party

New Years is literally right around the corner! Are you planning on attending a party or even are you hosting one??? Here are some small tips to help your party get that end of the year feel ;)

First off Champagne! (This is only if you are of legal age!) If you are of age this is the perfect New Years Eve drink for all adults and is a timeless classic. For younger people try having Champagne glasses with sparkling cider or some type of more classy juice (when it comes in the glass bottles and is bubbly it is much better and gives the drink and sophisticated champagne feel)

 While we're on drinks try making a punch and adding cute stars or sparklers to the drink is always a cute and fun touch

Now New Years is very much centered around time of course. So if you have many clocks try bringing them all out (whether they work or not) and set them up around your house or the space you will be in. If you have enough money and time a cute thing is to give each guest a watch so they can count down the hours/minutes/seconds. Make sure that all your clocks are set on the same time and if they don't work a great thing to do is set them to 11:59 just for fun! 

Along with the idea of clocks incorporate them into your food. The cupcake design on the right is a bit more intricate for an experienced chef or if your someone who is ready to take on the challenge. The idea of the right is a bit more simple. Just cut out circles of white craft paper and small strips of black paper. Glue two black "hands" onto the white circle add a gem to the middle and glue a wooden toothpick to the back to stick into the cupcake! 

Another quite simple yet creative dessert choice is an oreo cake. If you have tons of oreos just stack them into a cake form for a more "formal cake look" you could say :P 

Also design a small card to add to glasses or give to people as a fun gift! Just make it on the computer or get it online and then just print a bunch out!

What is a New Years Eve without sparklers?? Get them at a craft/party/grocery store near you for some small fun close up fireworks! 

Voila I hope these small tips helped :) 
I will also be putting up some ideas for what to wear! I'll keep you all posted 


Maybe My Favorite Holiday

Maybe My Favorite Holiday {a short writing piece on New Years by Miki} 

My toes curl over the edge of the chair. My eyelids flutter with the weight of sleep weighing them down. Quickly I reopen them not wanting to miss that moment. The one moment when everything goes quiet. When everyone leaves something behind. When it is time to start anew. That moment when the clock strikes twelve, the ball hits the ground, and a new year begins. 
“Nineteen, eighteen,” I hear people begin to chant. Time slows as I think back on this year. 
“Seventeen, sixteen,” The champagne and wine glasses clutter the table, blocking the view of the screen with the sparkling ball. 
“Fifteen, fourteen,” People chatter between the numbers holding on to bits of their past. Lie to ourselves that our problems go away when we pass through the changing of dates. They don’t really; it’s just that night. When you drink to much champagne and your brain gets all fuzzy. You forget.
“Thirteen, twelve,” I glance around the room. Everyone stands on a chair. About thirty people total, I estimate. 
“Eleven, Ten,” Where are the time machines when you need them? All those problems I could go back and fix.
“Nine, eight,” slipped from my mouth. People were getting anxious. Their faces clearly expressing their want to leave this year behind. Slip into the next year.
“Seven, six,” I always loved this holiday you could say. I like to forget my mistakes and move on and I take New Years as an excuse to forget. But really it isn't; just like you don't feel older the day after your birthday nothing changes between 11:59 and 12.
“Five, four,” I look around thinking about our tradition. In New York City people watch the ball drop, and when that moment comes there is a kiss and a hug for everyone. We jump into the New Year. Standing on a chair, and when the clock strikes we jump. Leaving the past in the air and greeting the present on the ground. 
“Three, two,” I guess that’s why its my favorite holiday. Its chaotic, and filled with the future. But now that I think about it maybe it’s not that amazing of a holiday. Maybe people make it great because they want to forget. I want to leave the past as history, leave my mistakes and faults, forget. What about the good memories, the fun times, the beautiful things this year? Yes, I want to forget, I want others to forget, and maybe New Year's Eve isn’t my favorite holiday after all. 
“One.” The ball drops and I forget.

The new year is approaching, don't forget.
