20 New Year’s Eve Essentials From Amazon Prime!

Amazon definitely gets the “best website of 2016” award from me because it has become invaluable in my daily life! I’ve cut down my trips to every shop I can think of thanks to Amazon! I buy 90% of everything online and probably 70% of that is from Amazon.

While choosing my NYE party theme I decided to try Amazon first just to see what I might find. Not surprisingly, most of what I needed was available through Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping! Which means I can order Monday or Tuesday and have it in plenty of time for this weekend!

Blush, Black & Gold NYE Party

I love creating mock tableaus for inspiration when I’m planning a party. Even if I end up changing my outfit or party table layout, making a ‘practice’ run always gets my creative juices flowing! Today I’m sharing with you a little NYE party decor and outfit inspiration I shot last weekend at my house. Scroll to the end of the post for details on where I found all the pieces for the entire look. I hope you enjoy!

Brand Rep Instagram Spotlight

I absolutely love seeing my sequin hangers shared on Instagram! Recently I’ve started working with two of my favorite bloggers and one of my favorite Etsy shops as reps for the Glitter & Bow brand. Today I wanted to tribute a little shout-out for all the lovely photos they have posted on Instagram featuring G&B sequin hangers. I think the best advertising for any product is showing potential shoppers how an item can be used in real life. Below you’ll see Lexie (J’adore Lexie Couture) using her sequin hanger to display her and her daughter’s favorite clothing, Oksana (Foxy Oxie) using her sequin hanger as a decoration piece and Katie (Sass & Cloth) using her sequin hangers at a pop up shop! Thank you ladies for being such fabulous brand reps and sharing the glittery goodness!
