New Years Eve is over, I had a nice time...Did you, Did you, have a ball on New Year’s Eve?

Well the holiday season is over... well technically over, but not for me and my family anyways. I'm Italian and the Christmas celebration doesn't end until after January 6th. So I'll be taking all my decorations down on January 7th. But for the rest of the world Christmas is over and the New Year has arrived. I can't believe it's 2014 already. Where does the time go? I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. I certainly did. On Christmas Eve my family had our big Christmas fish fest over my brother and sister-in-law's house. The food was absolutely delicious, and I made my famous Peppermint Eggnog Martinis...

 And here's what I wore on Christmas Eve

Dress from H&M//Sweater from Forever21//Bracelet from Macy's//Shoes are Benjamin Adams which were also my wedding shoes//Necklace was a gift from my husband that he gave to me to wear that night
For my make up, I again used my Stila Sheer Color in Medium and my FitMe! blush in medium on my face, just some black eyeliner and mascara on my eyes, and on my lips I used Clinique's Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in #07 Broadest Berry.

After we left my brother and sister-in-law's house and came home, my husband and I exchanged our gifts. On Christmas day my husband had to work from 7am-3pm, then he came home and we left to go over his mother's house. She made a delicious spiral ham that was to die for.

Here's what I wore on Christmas Day

The sweater was actually given to me by my mother. It was her's and then she decided she didn't want it anymore so she gave it to me and between the both of us, we've had it forever and I'm not sure where it's from//Skirt from H&M//Boots from JustFab//Bracelet was a gift my mother gave to me for Christmas. Her friend that owns a boutique jewelry store in Port Jefferson made it for me.

On New Year's Eve my husband and I always stay in, order Chinese food, drink Asti Champagne, and watch The Twilight Zone. My mother and my younger brother, John, came over to celebrate with us and this year was especially fun with The Twilight Zone Twitter Trivia Game. I love The Twilight Zone and know a lot about it and I loved playing along with the game.

Now for New Year's Eve I decided to wear my new sweatshirt that my husband got me for Christmas from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. If there was one item I had to show to sum me up this sweatshirt is totally it. It is one of the most awesome things that I own.


On my lips I decided to wear my new lip gloss that I bought at H&M with the gift card my mother-in-law gave me. It's called LIPGLOSS by H&M in You and Me. I LOVE this lip gloss. I'm usually not a lip gloss person. I find that no matter what color you get, they all look colorless and just shiny. Which is fine if that's what you like, but I love having a bright color on my lips and this lip gloss combines perfectly the color of a lipstick with the shine of a lip gloss.

I'll show you guys everything else I picked up while shopping with my gifts cards in another post, but until then, I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and has a happy and healthy 2014!
