Rock the Casbah

We Rocked the Casbah New Years Eve at the global theme party my friends threw in Laurel Canyon... in honor of 2012 and this last year of the Mayan calender. It was the perfect start to this new beginning with good friends and energy that kept us dancing throughout the night and well into the morning. Our DJ was amazing, along with our very own professional photographer who set up an area to shoot...best part though was how inspired everyone was to go all out on the theme of global ethnicity attire...the girls especially, of course! The atmosphere inside and outside the house looked insane the way it was transformed into an opium-like den, totally setting the mood for the evening. The draped ethnic fabrics and glowing candle light made everything so comfortable and inviting I was hoping my friend might just keep it that way forever...then again, she might need furniture versus a disco ball ;) 

Another theme of the night was the topic of  'intentions'...having an intention for the new year, and then setting it free, as our intentions don't always happen the way we plan. I like the idea of intentions much more than resolutions. There was an area designated outside for anyone who wanted to write their intention down on paper and put it in the 'special' box...which we would burn the next morning to release and let go to the universe!! Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens in 2012...
