Happy Friday, Gals! I know that most of you already talked about ringing in 2015 but since M was holding our Five on Friday reins last week, I hope you'll indulge me in my very first Five on Friday countdown of this bright new year - so far, it's been fantastic!
New Year's Eve festivities
I am usually a huge NYE hater because there is always tons of pressure for it to be the most awesome night ever and it's difficult to live up to all that hype, but this year...well, it totally exceeded my expectations!
|T and B, looking sharp!|
After throwing on my newest sparkly dress (which is typically the only part of NYE that I actually like!), I traveled south to the West Village to my lovely friend Kate's low-key pre-party, where I got to hang out with J and a bunch of other fabulous people (and take lots of pictures, of course).

|No photos, please!|
After that, T and I went to meet up with some other friends at a private bar party - normally, I'm not a big fan of these overpriced parties but with so many great people (and top shelf liquors) around, I had a blast!
|Excuse the blurriness...this was a little later in the night!|
Plus there were party streamers - so of course, we had to get up in those streamers.
All in all, it was a very lovely way to ring in the new year and start 2015 off with lots of happiness and fun!
Sales, sales, sales
Ok guys, is it just me or does anyone else absolutely love filling out their new paper planner at the start of the year? I am crushing so hard on my pristine Plum Planner and have been having THE best time filling it out with multi-colored pens (I know, I know, total paper nerd alert).
2015 may only be a little over a week old, but I already feel like this new year has given me a fresh start in so many different ways. I've made a new list of resolutions and have started implementing some small personal and professional changes that already feel like they are paying off - now if only I can drag myself back into a regular gym routine, all will be well!
A new link-up!
There's no better way to start a new year than with a new blog project, so M and I are thrilled to announce that we're hosting a new monthly link-up starting this Tuesday! We love experimenting with different cocktail recipes, so we thought it was time to start rounding up everyone's favorite cocktails in one big link-up. Check back here on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 a.m. EST to link up your favorite drink recipes, starting this Tuesday, 1/13!
