New Years is the one day a year we say bring on the bling and bring on the glitter. We love all of our new year's party ideas (New Years Party Planning, Ideas, & Supplies , Chic New Years Party Decor Made Easy!, and our personal favorite, Usher in a Rosy New Year! ) but truthfully, all could use a little extra bling. That is why we decided to put together this All That Glitter New Years Party. Feel free to mix and match elements from all our New Years party ideas. Continue Reading →

Party Fun for New Years Eve (or Any Night)!
Up until now we have not featured either karaoke or a lip-sync duel as a “go to” party activity mostly because I really, really do not like to perform. In fact, I think my husband's biggest fear is traveling to Korea on business and being dragged into a Karaoke club.
Having said all that, we love this Jimmy Fallon lip-sync duel and have to say, dueling karaoke does look like great fun. I can now definitely see this as a New Years Eve or late night party activity as good as, or maybe even better than, charades. Adding a lip-sync duel to your list of party games will appeal to guests of all ages! Choose your playlist based on your guest list. For example, if you are having lots of children, think about including some songs from Frozen. If your party is for adults only, it might be fine to include songs with lyrics that may not be as appropriate if children were present.
What you need:
- Memorex MKS-SS2 SingStand 2 Home Karaoke System or any singing machine or karaoke machine with a microphone. (We just checked and you can still get this delivered to your front door before your New Year's Eve celebration begins!)
- A diverse playlist
- A great group of guests wanting and willing to party – in other words well versed in party etiquette!
Merry Christmas! Even as you are opening your presents and eating your feast, the chances are you are already surreptitiously thinking about your New Year's Eve celebration and starting to obsess over the perfect outfit, accessories, and hair & make-up. If you are contemplating wearing a statement dress for your New Years party, then you should seriously consider wearing a sleek and chic hair style like a ponytail. There are various ways to wear a ponytail. My favorite hair inspiration, Kate Beckinsale, has been seen sporting a voluminous ponytail quite often. It is the perfect way to vamp up the typical ponytail. It has a very 1950s vintage vibe to it. And it doesn't matter how much hair you have because with the right teasing, it will look just right! Plus a perfect way to put a modern twist to the look is to add an elastic band hair cuffs! They add glam without overpowering the style. To see how to style this hairdo look below!

If you're anything like us, you may need a reset on that weight loss resolution as we enter our third week of 2013. Don't get down on yourselves and give up, we are considering those first three weeks practice anyway. Reset your calendar and join us with our new bistroMD eating plan.
We get it, you're busy, and just like us chances are you don't have time to grocery shop for fresh and expensive ingredients to create yourself gourmet healthy meals at the end of a long day. We're with you, and that's why we love bistroMD's new personalized meal plans. Not only are they healthy and do not contain fillers or MSG like some other packaged meal plans, they are completely customizable with specifically designed programs for men and women. Don't like fish? Then take fish completely out of your personal meal plan. How great is that? No more choking down foods you don't enjoy just because they are part of the pre-set diet plan you signed up for.
This is plan is no powdered shake, dehydrated soup or boxed food either! We wont be starving ourselves to get back into bikini shape for Spring Break in Cabo or fit into that special occasion dress for summer weddings . On bistroMD's new meal plan we will be enjoying dishes like buckwheat berry pancakes, chicken burrito bowls and broccoli and beef. YUM! So join us this year and take the healthy and nutritious route to achieve your resolution! bistroMD couldn't make this any easier, just choose your foods, order them customized to your taste, and wait for the delivery (which right now is free!)
Party Hearty! Party Pretty!
