New Year’s Eve In

Date: December 29, 2020

Goodbye, 2020

I cannot believe 2021 is almost upon us, and New Year’s Eve is only a few days away. What a year this has been.

Although I’m wishing I could fly to a beautiful beach and sip on some margaritas, or even host an amazing dinner party with family and friends, I know I can still ring in the new year and make it just as fun and memorable!

Below are a couple of ideas to welcome the new year in the comfort of your home!

Relax and Rejuvenate

Create the ultimate at-home spa experience by first putting on that oh-so-comfy Plush Hooded Robe from La Vie en Rose.

Then, appeal to your senses and grab the essentials such as this amazing 3-Wick Candle with Lavender Sea Salt, Fresh Air Breeze scent, and essential oils.

Feel like a Goddess with this amazing bath bomb from Lush and let the sensual jasmine, rose, and oudh oil fragrance consume you.

Top it off with a bottle of your favorite red, some Purdy’s Chocolatier faves, and an eye mask from La Vie en Rose. You’ll be sure to slip away to paradise.

When done, finish off with Warm Vanilla Body Yogurt from Bath & Body Works made with handcrafted Community Fair Trade shea butter from Ghana (where I come from 😉), so you know it’s great. Plus, it gives your skin a nice silky glow!

Follow up with Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream facial mask from Sephora; industry tip this was named one of 26 Best Face Masks of all time (Harper’s Bazaar, April 2020). This overnight mask includes both anti-aging and moisturizing ingredients to give skin a dewier, healthier appearance.

Seems like a great way to ring in the new year to me!

Did someone say charcuterie?

This year the charcuterie board had a starring role in many household tablescapes. And I’m guessing New Year’s Eve will be no different. Cheat a little, and gift yourself with this Hearty Holiday Medley from Hickory Farms (enough for leftovers), which comes with all the fixings!

Then grab this chic Black Orchid 2-Piece Cheese Board and Small Knife Set from Hudson’s Bay.

Party for One

Put on a fab but comfy romper (I love this one from H&M, below), these cute Faux Fur Heatable Bootie Slippers (you can still be chic on-top and comfy on the bottom) from La Vie en Rose, and discover a new delish cocktail with this Mini Bar Tools set from Hudson’s Bay!

Whether you’re alone, with your special someone, or joining a virtual party, your evening will be divine. I don’t know about you, but that beats a night out in a crowded, stuffy venue any day!

Whether you are lounging in your cozy yet glam satin dress (you’re welcome), catching up on Netflix holiday faves, joining a Zoom party with your friends, or trying out one of my at-home ideas above; let’s say good riddance to 2020 and bring on the new year!
