One of the best things about the holiday season is the release of yearmixes from our favorite DJs and producers. Recapping the whole year of music in one mix has become a great tradition in the past few years, and who better to lead us into 2013 than the five-time #1 DJ in the world, and Joonbug's own NYE headliner, Armin van Buuren.Last year's mix is still a classic, featuring over 80 tracks and crossing multiple genres. But, Armin being Armin, the 2012 yearmix is even bigger. Featuring over 100 of the year's biggest tunes and names (Markus Schulz, Dash Berlin, Gareth Emery, Andrew Rayel, Arty), this mix is sure to make some noise.

If you’re lucky enough to attend any of the NYE parties spanning across these five fabulous cities, you’ll be guaranteed beats, ball drops and a banging good time! Here’s a look at the Top 5:
Armin van Buuren – New York City

It all goes down at Pier 36, a 64,000 square foot pier that stretches out to Manhattan’s East River. There’s a 3-hour open bar taking place between 9:00 pm – 12:00 am. This event is strictly 21+.

There is something undeniable about champagne, whether you like it, hate it, can’t have brunch without it; bubbly tickles your nose and makes everyone feel incredibly posh. Who doesn’t want to feel like a million bucks as they raise a glass to the past year on New Year’s Eve?
Drink up before you break those New Year’s resolutions—you’re celebrating the coming of a new year! Here are 3 fabulous (and affordable) artisanal champagnes that were recommended to us by our hometown wine boutique, Down the Rabbit Hole in Sayville, NY. Long Island may be a trek for those in the five boroughs but we suggest treating yourself to a bottle of champagne outside the typically common bottles of bubbly at New Year’s Eve festivities. Visit your local wine boutique and they’ll be sure to pour you in the right direction of champagnes worthy of welcoming 2013 in cork-popping style. While you're choosing bubbles for NYE don't forget to plan an unforgettable night and choose from a variety of different parties here.
Ah, New Year's. A time for us all to decide which party to go to and which friends to party with. Should we head to NYC to watch the ball drop? Should we go skiing up in the mountains? House party with some close friends? The decisions are endless, as are the decisions on what to wear. Everybody wants to look glam, damnit, and it can be hard to know just how to pull off that special look. Well, we are here to help. Here are some options to make your decision-making a little more easy.
Make-Up: First and foremost, the right makeup on New Year's Eve is so important. No one wants their eyeliner to run or their lipstick to fade as the night goes on. Make sure you start with a primer to keep that make-up lasting into the wee hours of the night. We like Benefit's That Gal Brightening Face Primer ($29) so give those cheeks an extra glow. If you're going for a bold lip, there's nothing better for NYE than Susan Posnick's Coloressentials line ($19). The lipsticks come in fun, bright colors and is super moisturizing and shiny, plus it's very compact so can fit into the smallest clutch for touch-ups. Make those eyes pop with Lashfully's Lash Appeal Kit ($38). The kit contains two sets of eyelashes with adhesive and tweezers and will provide the most natural and lusciously long lashes for you to don. With the most essential make-up musts out of the way, it's time to move onto what to wear.
We're just about three weeks away from the close of 2012. NYE is the topic of all topics and it's a must to make sure your night is perfect. The end result should be a celebration of the years best moments and on December 31 make sure to toast to all your accomplishments!
