Love it or hate it, New Year’s Eve is on the horizon, and whether you plan on a lowkey event accessorised with takeaway pizza and supermarket Prosecco aplenty, or a night on the town instead, it’s certain that entering the new year feeling your best is something we all hope for from this controversial calendar event.
In the words of Taylor Swift, we’re feeling (20)22, and it’s okay if you’re happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time! It’s been a wild ride and regardless of your plans, celebrating the milestone of getting through another year of upheaval is something worth toasting to. Get those flutes at the ready!
See what Team Zoella plan to be rocking as the clock strikes 12, and let’s hold a moment of silence to manifest a Zac Efron style NYE smooch for us all. Amen.
My NYE plans this year are still a bit up in the air but if there’s one thing I can guarantee it’s that my outfit will need to be 11/10 to start the new year off right! I love love love this dress from Motel Rocks and although I am bound to be absolutely freezing, I think it’s worth it. I’ve paired it with some knee-high boots for a tiny bit more warmth and a classic black bag for a look that never gets old (imo).
NYE – it’s extra or nothing in my book, there is no in-between for me. I’m going to go for a black tux blazer and trousers because I know I’ll get the wear out of them as separates, then dress it up with all the glitzy accessories, from sparkly earrings, heels and a velvet hair bow to boot. More is more at this time of year!

If everything goes to plan I’ll be in New York for NYE which is SUPER exciting. I don’t have crazy party plans, just planning to bar hop and then go for my first meal of 2022 at Lil Frankie’s! It’s going to be absolutely freezing in NY so I’ll be heading out in jeans a jumper (with tons of layers) some heeled boots and this gorgeous faux shearling coat. I don’t know if I’ll be able to get hold of this Taylor merch for the big night but I REALLY want it!

Is anyone else in agreement that NYE is a strange night? It’s hyped up all through December but usually the actual night is… slightly anticlimactic. I do however like to get dressed up still and feel hopeful of having the best NYE ever ha. So I’ve gone for a pair of wide-leg jeans and a cute cami top with diamanté straps, paired with some clear perspex heels and a diamanté bag to match, I’ll wear an oversized black blazer over the top in the hopes it keeps me slightly warm!

I am fairly certain that it’s a night in with a takeaway for me and my husband this year, trying to convince family members to babysit has so far fallen very flat. To be honest, I don’t really mind, New Year’s out has never really gone that well for me and who’s to say getting dressed up at home and opening up your finest bubbles you’ve been saving can’t be just as fabulous! I’ll be honest the heels are a stretch but a special sparkly dress and tailored blazer combo is always going to make you feel great.
Who knows where we’ll be for NY at this rate but one thing’s for certain, SPARKLES (and crying)! Whether I’m on the sofa with mum or doing tequila in the club, I will certainly be dressing to the nines and when I’ve had one too many wines will cry about the past year, it’s tradition! Gold is ultimate party time and black because I am sophisticated.
