Happy New Year and welcome, 2017! Hope all of you wonderful Posse folks are enjoying the holiday and that your new year is off to a good start. What did you do to celebrate? What scent did you wear? Do you have any special traditions you use as part of your celebration? I know here in the South, eating collard greens and black-eyed peas is supposed to bring you luck in the new year. I’ve missed out on that so far in 2017, but it’s not too late. 🙂
I was so excited this year because my DH had the whole weekend off and could ring in 2017 not at work. Usually he has to work on New Year’s Eve and only occasionally has he made it home in time for the big ball drop. So in honor of this momentous occasion, I put on my favorite red lipstick (and eyeliner, too, woo-hoo!), wore Clive Christian C (so rich and luxe), and we went out to eat. We forgot the champagne, so instead I made some “skinny” homemade eggnog (all the store-bought ones are SO high in carbs, sugar and fat), and it was delicious. Then on New Year’s Day took it easy for the most part, just getting some little odds and ends done. Debating whether or not to work today (Monday, the observed holiday day, at least for the U.S.), as my small office is very flexible about things like that. Also, I’m in month two of doing Weight Watchers and am feeling pretty good (more energy, etc.), so I think this year may be my best one yet.
Anyhoo, would love to hear what you’re up to for the start of 2017. Hope it’s a wonderful and blessed year for each of you, and that your dreams (fragrant and otherwise) come true. We here at the Posse are so thankful to have another year to share perfume fun and more with all of you!
*** BTW, here’s the link to the eggnog recipe I used. I normally don’t use Splenda, etc., but did just for this. And it’s easily adjusted without.
Hope you enjoy it!
