New Year’s Links

Happy New Year’s Eve!


Whether you’re still planning your outfit (or menu) for this evening, or setting goals for the impending New Year, I’ve compiled a short list of links that might be of interest to you as NYE & the New Year quickly approach.


  • New Year’s Eve Options from J’s Everyday Fashion – I subscribe to J’s blog & love seeing what new outfits she comes up with. Her New Year’s Eve post contains lots of good options – dressy & somewhat casual – perfect for whatever your plans may be!
  • Hair & Makeup Ideas from Real Simple – It’s nice to put a little extra effort into hair & makeup on a special occasion. These ideas, provided by Real Simple Magazine, walk you through the hair & makeup styles step-by-step.


  • Healthy New Year’s Eve Recipes & Menus from Eating Well – Rather than take the “I’m going to be healthy tomorrow, so I’ll eat everything in sight tonight” approach, why not create a healthy NYE menu? In this article, Eating Well provides some great beverage ideas, too!
  • Top Holiday Appetizers from Pillsbury – Is there anyone out there who can’t appreciate a crescent roll every now & then? I didn’t think so! 😉 Pillsbury provides their top 10 appetizers, all relatively quick & easy to pull together. I’m planning on making the fig & blue cheese appetizer tarts this evening!

Goal Setting

  • You Can Do This! from Women’s Health Magazine – Of course losing weight is a common resolution, & this article can provide some advice if that’s something you’re looking to do in the New Year. However, Women’s Health also provides tips for those of us setting other health & fitness goals, such as getting toned or taking up running.
  • How to Jump-Start Your 2012 Workout Action Plan from FitSugar – I love these ideas from FitSugar – all great if you’re looking to get back into exercise, change up your routine, or start from scratch. Two of my favorites? “Revamp Your iPod Playlist” & “Spruce Up Your Closet”… new tunes & clothes are sure to provide at least some motivation to get active!

I hope you all have a wonderful, fun New Year’s Eve & a great start to 2012! :-)

    You linked this up…. and I am loving it!!! I need to put down this lesson plan book and get on top of this outfit situation! I want to look cute! …..I’m glad we are going out with some friends, I don’t feel up to cooking for everyone today but tomorrow, I’m feeling some of that maple mustard chicken from the other day!
    I’m so glad to have found your blog this year, Erica. Here’s to 2012! Have a wonderful evening! *hugs*
