I never do this, but here, have two posts in one day. I’m not posting tomorrow or Sunday, so this should tide you over!
Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it’s time to think about Christmas and New Years. There is still plenty of time to solidify your New Year’s Eve plans, so why not enter to win a trip to NYC with 3 friends through Hpnotiq’s SparkleLouder Contest?
We already talked about this contest a few weeks ago, so this part of today’s post is just a reminder. The contest runs until December 8, so you still have plenty of time to enter. The big prize is a trip for you and 3 friends to New York City, but you could also win one of 20 EFFY Diamond & Blue Topaz Rings Sweepstake prizes. To enter, upload a picture here and make it sparkle. The one that Sparkles the Loudest will win the grand prize!
This was my example entry:
So go ahead and enter! I wish I could win to celebrate NYE with my best friend Sean (pictured above), although she lives in New York, so maybe it will happen one year.
But wait, there’s more to this post …
You have to start planning what you’re going to do for New Year’s Eve so that you don’t have to stress after Christmas – who needs more stress then? My ideal New Year’s Eve would be a night out in Boston with my favorite people. Preferably in something sparkly, and perhaps magically some way I could still be warm. Last year, I went around to Boston’s First Night, which was loads of fun, but freezing because so much of it was outside. Watching the fireworks down by the harbor was wonderful, though!
This year, I’ll definitely be adding a Hpnotiq cocktail. New Year’s is the time to bring out something special! (This is probably the only time you’ll see me talking about alcohol on here – NYE is a special occasion though, right?)
I would definitely make the azure sangria.
2 oz. Hpnotiq
3 oz. white wine
1 oz. ginger ale
Pour chilled Hpnotiq and white wine into a wine class. Top with ginger ale, and maybe even add a fresh fruit of your choice.
Be sure to enter the contest, but only if you’re over 21. If you’re not over 21, no alcohol for you!
