New Year’s Eve means a lot of things: reflection, rebirth, resolutions, parties, flirting, champagne singing, and perhaps most importantly, SEQUINS. Add a little festive sparkle to your outfit this weekend with one or two sequined accessories, amp things up with a pair of sequined heels, steal the show in a sequined dress, or channel your inner disco ball and wear them all at once. Click through for details…

Call me a Grinch, but I’ve never really celebrated New Year’s Eve. It’s freezing cold, it’s all about drinking (which means other people barfing and fighting), it involves staying up until the wee hours of the morning, and sometimes your crazy-ass friends expect you to shell out $250 for some stupid club. No thanks! I usually stay home on New Year’s Eve or briefly attend whatever party is closest to my place.
I suspect I’m not the only homebody out there, though, because now is the time of year when I hear people bitching about how ritzy New Year’s Eve plans (usually planned by someone else!) are making them go broke. In the spirit of not starting off 2012 with credit card debt, here’s some tips on how to plan your own low-key New Year’s Eve party that doesn’t suck: Keep reading »
New Year’s Eve is completely overwrought with expectation, isn’t it? Will your party be hip-hop-video-caliber awesome? Who are you going to kiss? And most importantly, are you wearing enough sequins?

Never fear, friend. We’ve got seven ideas for totally different ways to ring in 2012. Keep reading »

If a movie was to be based on my love life, it would be called “New Year’s Eve.” (Or it would be called that if there wasn’t already a movie coming out with that very name and, in fact, sponsoring this very post.) But seriously, if I actually had the patience to sit down and write a screenplay based on the longest, most significant romantic relationship of my adult life, it would be a rom-com and if the name was available, it would be called “New Year’s Eve.” Here’s why.

You know how, once in a while, someone asks you your age and your mind goes blank, leaving you sounding like a total idiot tripping over the word, “Uhhhhh…” That’s how I feel about my magic number. Confession: I have no idea how many men I’ve had sex with over the years. I cashed in my v-card at age 16, and for a while kept a mental tally of the guys I had sex with, who were usually of the boyfriend variety. Somewhere in my early twenties, I reached the 10 mark and from there, keeping count just felt kinda wrong. About a year ago, a friend asked about my sex number and I went home determined to do a tally. But after I reached the second guy in the list whose name and identifying characteristics I no longer remembered, I abandoned the endeavor and vowed never to do it again. I know that my magic number is more than 15, and I’d like to say that it’s less than 25. But I’m just not sure anymore. Keep reading »
One New Year’s Eve, back in college, I literally had to duck to avoid the kid who lived down the hall (who looked like Jesus and smelled like he hadn’t bathed since then) from drunkenly planting a kiss on me at midnight. He had been dancing with his pet snake for hours before he tried to slither into my personal space. Shudder. Granted, no one else was trying to get freaky with me, but I was happy kissing my vodka soda when the ball dropped. Keep reading »
Most people will bring in 2011 by watching the New Year’s countdown in Times Square, going to church or attending a party.

If 2010 wasn’t that great for you, maybe you should ring in the new year with the following traditions and superstitions to increase your chances of gettin’ lucky in 2011. Keep reading »

I know I was devastated when I learned that Times Square put the kibosh on Snooki’s 2011 “hamster ball” drop stunt. Yes, MTV had planned to put her in some kind of pink, glittering ball and ring in the New Year by lowering her down into the center of the action. Apparently, the bitches in charge of Times Square’s New Year’s preparations deemed the entire hamster ball apparatus “too impractical.” Ya think? Well, MTV was not ready to give up on the Snooki-drop. “We love our Times Square home and while we’re disappointed there won’t be a Snooki ball drop there, she cannot be denied! So we’re taking a road trip to the place where it all began, Seaside Heights, and droppin’ it all there,” the network said in a statement released on Thursday afternoon. I guess 2011 is going to be a good year after all. Does this make Jersey Shore the new Times Square and Snooki the new Dick Clark? [NY Times] Keep reading »
