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.

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 »

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.)

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 »
