Oh New Year's Eve ... ridiculous hype, the rush to get ready and the where-oh-where-will-everyone-congregate-when-the-clock-literally-counts-down havoc. It happens every year and you can't avoid it. But maybe I can be your Virgil*.
OK, you're lost. It's New Year's Eve and you're still at work. Can you make an early escape? Who knows. But the doldrums of the day leach the life from you and when your colleagues aren't buzzing about your ear mercilessly they're emailing you pictures of their dogs in holiday sweaters ... when all you want is to go home and start getting ready!
FINALLY the day is over and you're heading home to primp for a night on the town.
Stop #1: Kanibal Home for some pre-party pampering. We'll be serving up champagne and snacks with a great big side of style (provided by the lovely Shana Fiorianti in the form of makeovers -- see below). We also have plenty of party dresses (hello, did you see that sequin dress in the window? And if you don't want to be the disco ball at the bar then we also have some sexy silhouettes and low-key sequins as well.).
STOP #2: Home. To do whatever it is you do to get ready for a night out. I don't want to know. But, if you're like me, you'll be hustling because the next stop is the pièce de résistance of the evening. And you're probably running late.
STOP #3: This is the part where most people fret and freak out. Side note: These are all shameless plugs, because ... this is what I'm doing on New Year's Eve. But I thought, Why not publicly share? TMI? Nah, we're a social media culture after all. And for the two people reading this blog ... feel free to come have a drink with me at my table. Because I'll be here:
And that's that. New Year's Eve chaos completely diverted ...........E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle.
* OK, who got the reference? ... Anyone, anyone? My super nerd side is showing. But this is what happens when it's a snow day. You guys get a mildly allegorical blog post.
