When I went to NYC this weekend I tried DryBar, and  I’m usually quite camera-shy but  it was SO good that  I’m actually posting pictures of myself on the blog. Yea, it was that good. It’s such a fun atmosphere and the attention to detail is phenomenal. From the chick-flicks playing on TVs, to the iPhone docks at each seat, to the bright yellow chandeliers made out of hair dryers, it was all around a great girl’s day with my mom and sister at the salon (and we all looked quite fabulous when we headed out to go see Newsies that evening in the city!).

I’m getting really excited for New Years Eve; I’m hosting a party at my apartment for a few of my friends and I’ve been scouring online for ideas. I’m on a budget so I have a few DIY decorations that I will share once they’re in place. In the meantime, here are some of the images that inspired me…

The silverware and pink combination is so classic.

The ConfettiSystem from Urban Outfitters has that punch of 80’s glam that a NYE party needs.

It’s no Times Square, but this faux chandelier would certainly set the mood for the countdown to midnight! (And its on sale!)
