If there’s ever a right time to rock sequins or pull on a shimmery dress, New Year’s Eve is it. However, there’s a fine line between sparkly chic and glitter factory explosion. To avoid the latter, stick to sequined neutrals—black, gold, and silver. If that feels overwhelming, try a pair of leather leggings with some shiny accessories, or maybe a bold skirt with a simple top. If your style is more minimal, add some flair to your fingernails with a sparkle polish. Let’s celebrate.

Our post about holiday cookies was supposed to be two things: short and sweet.
Hundreds of cookies later, we realized that compiling a few of our favorites wasn’t going to cut it; there’s too many! Instead, we came up with four categories—Creative Cutouts, Chocolate Treats, Christmas Classics and Gluten-Free—and sifted through tons of blogs and magazines to bring you the sweetest of the sweet. Happy baking!
1. Glorious Treats—2.3. Better Homes and Gardens—4. Klickitat Street
1.2. Better Homes and Gardens—3. Bake at 350
1. A Baker’s House—2. Cully’s Kitchen—3. The Kitchen Magpie
1.2.3. Gluten-Free On A Shoestring
With one week left until Christmas, we’re making our food shopping list and checking it twice. No holiday party menu is complete without cocktails (or mocktails!), so here are some tasty drink recipes to serve at your seasonal soiree. Go ahead, test one out while finishing your gift-wrapping—you deserve a treat, too.
Which holiday cocktail is your favorite? Are you a fan of fancy drinks, or do you tend to stick to the eggnog? Tell us on Twitter @ASargentEvents.
