A Very Happy New Year

I hope all of you had an amazing weekend ringing in 2012!  Boyfriend B and I went to our wonderful friend K's lakehouse where we celebrated the new year with her, her boyfriend and two other couples.  I couldn't have asked for a better, cozy night at the lake.  When we arrived K and I already had a roaring fire going. They're just the best.

Even though I have been posting about sequins and sparkly dresses, I realized I didn't have much of said items in my closet.  I had one shirt in mind and then realized I forgot it at my apartment in Madison.  That does not help me as I was not in Madison for NYE.  Instead, I went with a shiny necklace. I thought it was the perfect alternative for what I had at home. What do you think?

I also curled my hair for the first time since I don't even know when.  I had to majorly dust off a curling iron I found in my mom's bathroom drawer, and it was extremely thin.  Apparently, thinner was the trick because my hair usually does not hold curls, but it did Saturday night.  K curled it though because I am still clueless in the curling department.  Spur of the moment resolution: learn how to curl my hair.





Recap via my Instagram: cozy fire, yummy drinks, and change of apparel because I got too cold and then proceeded to sit by the fire the rest of the night. Can you blame me?!





How was your night? What did you do?

Time to get my game face on for the Rose Bowl today-Go Badgers!

Last NYE I tried curling my hair too and by some miracle it worked. My curling iron broke after that and I still haven't replaced it, but I've been wanting too. Your curls look great! I love your sparkly necklace and your dress too!
