Join Me New Year's Eve!

     To my North and South Carolina reader friends: do you have NYE plans yet? I've actually never been big on celebrating New Year's... I don't think I ever had plans for a year that I was at home in Maine for the holiday! Two years ago in fact I distinctly remember going to bed early and binge watching Gossip Girl all evening- a pretty mellow way to ring in 2015. :-)

     Anyways, last year was my first year of ever doing something out of the ordinary to celebrate, and I knew that this year I had to top it! That's what I'm so excited to be attending the Southern Skyline Grand Ball. There are two locations of this fantastic event, one in Greenville, SC, which is one of my favorite cities in the South, and one locally right here in Charlotte. This year, the Charlotte event is being held at my favorite Uptown hotel, none other than Le Meridien! Le Meridien is the home of rooftop bar City Lights, a place that I've spent my fair share of time at in 2016. I couldn't think of a better place to ring in 2017 at!

     The Southern Skyline Grand Ball is a black-tie optional event, and both general admission and VIP tickets being all-inclusive for beverages and hors d'oeuvres. Guests at the Charlotte event can look forward to four stages, and over 10 bands and DJs performing throughout the night's festivities! Le Meridien just announced this week that UK Electronic Duo Gorgon City will be headlining the Charlotte event as featured musical guests.

     General admission tickets are $130, and VIP tickets are $180. There are also table service and group packages available, as well as hotel room rates. You can purchase tickets for either the Charlotte or Greenville events right here!

     And here is a sneak peak of my NYE inspired outfit post... which will be live on the blog next Monday. :-)

     Hoping that everyone's weekend will be filled with many Christmas blessings. Be sure to keep up with me on social media (Find me @miss_alk on everything) while I'm home in Maine!
