I don’t know about you guys, but I’m having a serious Christmas hangover. Not literally (although the wine was flowing at dinner), but just…emotionally. After all of the action, it’s nice to have a chance to decompress, but I’m already looking forward to the next holiday. Luckily, New Year’s Eve is so close! Let’s do a little count down with NYE-inspired finds until then, shall we?

I’ve lived in New York for 11 New Year’s Eves, and though I’ve been on the street at midnight some years, I’ve never been to Times Square. Maybe I’m a stick in the mud, but between the crowd and the cold, it’s not my scene. That said, I love watching the ball drop. This gorgeous Ball Chandelier by Tom Dixon for the Swarovski Crystal Palace series glitters with hundreds of crystals, and reminds me of all the awe and excitement of ringing in the new year.

What are your New Year’s Eve plans this year?

    Briana, I too am on a Christmas hang over of the sugar variety. I am bringing all of my extra treats that are leftover to the office tomorrow so they aren't lying around here calling my name!
    We go to see our favorite 80s cover band with a group of friends every NYE.

      80s cover band concert? How cool! I love 80s music. What's the name of the band? I'd love to look them up.

      P.S. I hear you on the sweets front. My boyfriend's mom made dairy-free cinnamon rolls that I could have. Thankfully, the rest of the family finished them before I could do too much damage! ;)
