How to Look Your Very Best on New Year’s Eve

Start Planning Early
Everything about NYE can be improved with a little forethought. Figuring out what you’ll be wearing on New Year’s Eve can be frustrating, especially if you leave it until the last moment. To avoid stress, get yourself on Pinterest TODAY. Ideas for outfitshairmakeup, and nails are in overabundance and cater to every style and personality. Planning early can also ensure more designs and sizes when you start shopping around.

Give Yourself Plenty of Time to Get Ready on NYE 
Avoid rushing to get ready or arriving to the party late by giving yourself plenty of time to get ready for the evening. If you think it will take you three hours to get ready, than give yourself four. Starting early allows you to take your time and relax before leaving the house for the evening. It also prevents you from becoming the person everyone has to wait on before they can start partying. Don’t be that person…
Women: Know Thy Heel Limit or Pack a Pair of Flats
Is there anything sadder than watching a woman in pain shuffle around a party in skyscraper heels? If you can’t walk in a pair of shoes with confidence, then don’t wear them. I don’t care how pretty those Louboutins stilettos are, if you’re in pain or shaky on your feet then you aren’t looking your best. If you simply must wear those shoes, then pack a backup pair. Dr. Scholl’s offers a product called Fast Flats that are precisely for this situation.
Go the Extra Mile 
‘Tis the season for fake eyelashes and everything glitter. Use those untouched glitter eye shadows in your favorite palettes. Guys, want to go black tie? Mention NYEDetroit for a 50% discount on suits from President Tuxedo.
Treat yo Self
After a strenuous holiday season, take the time to show yourself a little TLC. The days leading up to NYE are the perfect time to add highlights to your hair or get your nails done. If you have a limited budget, head to Groupon for plenty of savings on local salons.

Once the Bang is Over, Make Sure There’s no Hangover

New Year’s is a time to allow for better and smarter life choices. Kick off 2015 by making the best decisions for you and your rock star body; no more hangovers!

Once the bubbly is done pouring and the confetti is thrown away, the last thing you want is to feel like the DJ has personally followed you home and set up in your brain. Follow these tips to ensure you have a relaxing and enjoyable New Year’s Day.

How to Avoid a Hangover

Get the Munchies: While eating doesn’t necessarily mean you will avoid a hangover, it can definitely help. Digesting foods will slow the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream. Most New Year’s Eve parties will have out hors d’oeuvres for guests to snack on.

Pace Yourself: Many NYE parties will start as early as 6:00 or 7:00 in the evening. That means you’re going to want to run a marathon not a race. This will help your to drink less and also allow your body to absorb the alcohol already in your system.

Drink Water: It is no surprise that our bodies love H2O. They love it even more when they need it the most, during dehydration which is exactly what is happening while you’re drinking alcoholic beverages. Try alternating between a small glass of water and a cocktail, or even replacing pop and juice with water or club soda. Make sure to keep a glass at your bedside when you return home at night.

Stay Clear of Dark Liquors: Whiskeys, bourbons, scotch, and some tequilas have higher concentrations of toxins called congeners. These toxins only add more severity to your hangover. If you’re going to go with the hard stuff, stick to light liquors such as vodka and gin.

Get Plenty of Rest: Not only will you be having a long night of dancing and mingling with friends, your body will be having a long night and following day trying to replenish itself. Try to sleep as soon as your home and take a nap the next day to let your body rest as much as possible.

What to do When You Already Have a Hangover

Take a Couple Painkillers: It will be no surprise if you wake up to a pounding headache after your long night of partying. Try taking aspirin or ibuprofen to ease the pain, and only in the morning. Your blood will already be thinned from the alcohol so mixing with pills while the liquid is fresh in your system at night can be a very dangerous idea.

Drink more water!!: You should already have been drinking lots of water the night before, but you shouldn’t stop once morning hits. Your body will still be dehydrated and thirsting for extra water. Sports drinks such as Gatorade and Power Ade are great alternatives also to give your the extra electrolytes.

Fuel Your Body: Your body will need nutrients to feel better. This time around carbs will be your best friend and make you feel great. Also, foods with high protein will help to ease the pain. Have a banana ready for you in the morning and nice hearty breakfast.

Drink it Up: No, not more alcohol. Smoothies, natural juices, and coconut water are all great options to help cure your hangover. All three contains antioxidants, sugar and water! Plus you may be feeling too queasy to actually scarf down some eggs and bacon.

Work Out: The reason you are feeling so crappy is because your body is full of yucky toxins. A fast and easy way to get rid of those is to sweat it out. Put on your running shoes, get some fresh air, and rid your body of the things it doesn’t want.

Why is New Years on January 1st?

by Laura,

Did you ever wonder why New Years is celebrated on January 1st? Have you ever wondered, why January?

The earliest record of the New Years dates back in the Babylonian era in 4,000 B.C. and was celebrated as a major religious holiday in March following the equinox. In this time period The Roman Time period had only consisted of 10 months and 304 days, unlike the present 12 months and 365 days.

The calendar remained the same until in the 8th century when King Numa Pompilius created the months Janarius and Februarius.  However with these new additions the calendar now fell out of sync with the sun. The next influential man to step in with some change is one that is familiar to most, Julius Caesar, who happened to be emperor at the time.  At this point Julius consulted the most influential astronomers and mathematicians at the time to create what is now known as used in present day time throughout the world, the Julian calendar.

Caesar then implemented January 1st as the first day of the year.  This name was chosen in honor of the name of the month, Janus, which was the Roman God of new beginnings. Unlike present day celebrations New Years was celebrated by offering sacrifices to Janus, exchanging gifts and decorating homes with laurel branches.

New Years Dating Tips

By Ashley Cannard


Do you remember last New Year’s when your resolution was to find that special someone and to be in the relationship you’ve always wanted? Well, here we are again, one year later and still no relationship.

When we stop to realize the realities of today, we find that things don’t quite work out as planned. We’re then left feeling hopeless when it comes to the dating scene. In all of today’s chaos and crazy schedules, how do we find “the one”?

We’ve interviewed a couple ladies who have some great dating tips. They’ve utilized them in their own lives and have had much success, so why not make these suggestions a part of your everyday life? 

“Coming from someone who’s kissed a lot of frogs, and dated more men than I care to mention, I guess you could say I’m as much of an expert as anyone else.  I’ve finally found someone that is perfect for me, so let me share some insight into some tips on how to search for and capture your perfect soul mate,” says Jodie Svagr.

Make A Plan
Having a plan is the best thing someone can do, whether single or in a relationship. Don’t live a boring life. Get out there and do something you enjoy! Connect with old friends, throw a dinner party, go to a good restaurant, or attend a fun event. If you’re out doing what you love, you’re bound to meet other singles doing the same thing!

Don’t Rely on Others to Make You Happy
If you’re feeling miserable in your own life, you’re never going to find someone that will make you happy.  Life has so many wonderful things to offer, you just have to embrace it! “Try yoga, ride a bike, decorate your house, get a new outfit, pick up a new hobby, or go to a New Year’s party,” says Jessie Harper.  Keep track of the things that make you happy and stick with it.  The happier you are with yourself, the easier it will be to attract amazing things, even an amazing person. So start this New Year’s off right and make your happiness your resolution!

Don’t Stress It
Whether you’re attending an event or on a date, focus on staying “in the moment” and enjoy that moment!  Don’t stress about whether or not the person sitting across from you could be your soul mate. Everyone wants to spend the rest of their life with someone they enjoy being with, so try enjoying the moment you’re in!

Just Dance
Yes, we know that striking up a conversation is difficult when you’re first getting to know someone, and maintaining that conversation can be even harder.  But get over it – Life is about taking risks! Get yourself on the dance floor, break up any nervousness or tension and spark up a great conversation with the person you’re with. If you’re flying solo or with a group of friends, getting onto the dance floor can help you meet someone new!  New Years Eve in Detroit tends to have a packed dance floor, so don’t be a wall flower. Get out there and dance yourself into a possible romance!

Getting Started
To find great people, you need great events. There are plenty of events happening in your area all the time that are guaranteed to have amazing singles at them! Check out The Social Connection. Their entire mission is to connect like-minded single professionals.

European New Year’s Celebrations…

by Laura,

With New Year’s approaching some might celebrate their long standing traditions and some might be creating new traditions for new beginnings ahead. But do you ever wonder what other traditions there are out there? If you have intrigue for Europe then be ready to indulge!

In Germany they prefer to indulge in their sweet tooth and relax with some good television. The sweets consist of jam filled doughnuts that can also be flavored with or without liquor as well as a marzipan pig. The marzipan pig is a sweet treat molded into a pig which in Germany symbolizes good luck for the future!

France chooses to celebrate by use of food. They prepare specialty dishes from their region in an either intimate dinner setting or with a lavish ball. New Year’s Day is a day to exchange resolutions and relax to prepare for the upcoming year.

Spaniards celebrate with fruit and then party the night away! Dating back to 1895 farmers realized they had a large surplus of grapes therefore started a tradition of eating 12 grapes for every chime of the midnight countdown. Each grape eaten represents a wish for the following year. They then party the night away in nightclubs that are open until 6 am, which is sure to be a great time.

Lastly, Poland appreciates the great outdoors in celebration of the New Year. The two large events are held in the Main Square in Krakow and St. Mary’s Basilica. The Main Square hosts a large outdoor concert while there is a festive fireworks and music display over St. Mary’s.
