The countdown to the New Year is on, so to ensure you’re looking and feeling your best when you take 2016 by storm, here’s an easy-to-follow New Year’s Eve prep guide:
Smile for the Camera
Everyone wants to capture the close of one year and the start of the next – so make it picture perfect. Try the Arm & Hammer™ Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ Extra White™ Battery Toothbrush. Pair it with Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Rejuvenating Toothpaste for minty fresh breath. Together they strengthen, clean and whiten teeth in just five days – right in time for that New Year’s kiss!
Get your Party Dress On
Whether it’s heading to your favourite clothing store or searching through your closet (or a friend’s) to find the perfect holiday ensemble, make sure whatever you’re wearing makes you feel fabulous. A little confidence boost will help you get your groove on! Make sure your footwear is comfortable and fashionable though, there is nothing attractive about someone hobbling around in pain!
Feed your Appetite
If you’re hosting a party, make sure you have enough appetizers, desserts and other party foods to last throughout the night. Buy enough beverages and mix it up with a few sliders – delicious food goes a long way!
Pro Tip: provide food and drinks sporadically throughout the night rather than all at once, so it lasts.
