There is nothing embarrassing with admitting that you are spending your New Year's Eve at home, away from the jubilant voice of party and cracking fireworks. After all, there is no place like home, right? Due to work, I'm not able to join the rest of my family in their exciting trip to Turkey. Luckily, I won't be alone at home, my dear sister is also stuck here for exams (#thejoyandsorrowofmedstudent). We already have a couple of things that we'd do together to celebrate NYE.
Baking and Cooking; My sister is currently in a phase when she is conscious of everything she eats, a phase I went back when I was around her age. She's been interested in cooking and baking lately. I haven't been able to rekindle my passion for baking despite the many attempts I made this year. Figure this will be a great chance, I'm thinking something along the line of Hummingbird Bakery Chocolate Brownies or Peanut Butter Cookies. By the way, can you believe that this will be the first time we whip up something together in the kitchen?
At Home Concert/Cinema; even if you don't have impressive home theater, you can still enjoy the euphoria of your favorite concert/film just with your PC and great quality headphones. Turn off the room light, switch on my turquoise ligh-stick, and I'm ready to relive my SHINee World Concert experience.
Lit the candles; get the celebration mood by doing the most simple thing you can do; light up the candles, turn up the fairy lights. Not only it will fill your house with the most heavenly scent, right candle and lighting can set up a right celebratory ambience.
Early morning shopping; which includes shopping for your dinner ingredients. I found shopping at December 31st morning gives me the craziest of deal. Who doesn't love 50% of Hershey chocolates and big jar of Nutella, seriously? While you're at it, visit your favorite makeup counter or retail store, you might find the item in your wish-list to be at its lowest price.
Clean and declutter; use this last chance to do the yearly clean up you always promised you'd do but never did. I've did another wardrobe clean up early this month, and it's more merciless than the one I did back in July. I ended up with two huge shopping bags; one to donate and one to sell.
How do you spend your new year's eve at home? and Happy New Year!
