The new year is quickly approaching! I’ve already been busily preparing for the upcoming year, and this new year’s eve I’m taking a different approach. Instead of ringing in the new year with a really fun party and then spending my new year’s day cleaning up from said wild party, I’m taking new year’s eve to relax and recharge for the coming year! I never knew that declining a party invitation could feel this good! So trade out your sparkly new year’s eve dress for a pair of cozy pajamas and join me for a guide to a chill NYE!
A Lazy Girl’s Guide to a Chill NYE
The first step in creating the ultimate new year’s eve, lazy style, is to grab your finest pajamas. Personally, I’m all about adding a pair of slippers to the mix, but the main goal here is to be comfortable. If you don’t want to hang out in your pajamas, put on some loungewear or another super comfortable pair of clothes.
Create a place of relaxation and coziness
Now that you’re in your most comfortable attire, it’s time to create an atmosphere of relaxation and cozy. I like to start by lighting the fireplace and gathering up my favorite blankets to the couch. This will make for a fun and exciting place to binge-watch movies or shows, or just create a nice nook to read your favorite book.
Pamper yourself a little
Pampering doesn’t need to be an over the top experience here. Start by creating a nice cozy bubble bath for yourself and add a fun bath bomb to the mix. Put on a face mask and take a nice relaxing soak in the tub. When you get out, go ahead and put on some moisturizer and give your skin a little attention.
Go for easy and yummy comfort food
You don’t have to cook on New Year’s Eve if you don’t want to, but this can make for an extra cozy night in! In the morning, dump a few fun things into the crockpot to enjoy later, and let dinner cook itself! If, on the other hand, you want something a little more exciting, consider picking up some frozen appetizers from the store, and have a little oven-baked fun later in the evening.
Snuggle up with your fam for a fun night in
Remember those blankets you set up? Now is the time to put them to good use! Go ahead and take some time to gather up your favorite board games or movies and enjoy snuggling up in the blankets with your loved ones! This can be a fun way to pass the time until midnight, or just to spend a few hours in your comfortable oasis. If you want, you can even use this time to catch up on all those shows you’ve meant to watch.
You don’t have to go out to have a fantastic new year’s eve celebration! It’s totally possible to have an amazing night without the parties or leaving the comfort of your own home.
