Win Big this NYE with Hpnotiq’s SparkleLouder Contest

This post is sponsored by Hpnotiq, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Have you started thinking about your NYE look yet?  I love New Year's because it gives me the chance to wear my fanciest dresses and accessories.  Chicagoans tend not to dress up that much for a regular night out, but for NYE everyone steps it up.

I saw this super cute LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's dress last month and decided it was worth breaking my shopping ban for - when you find a dress that works, you have to snap it up! Last year I wore a ton of sparkle (ahem, as shown by my blog header) but this New Year's Eve I plan on sparkling with my accessories, like a sparkly belt and jewelry.  

This year you can sparkle too with Hpnotiq's SparkleLouder contest.  Hpnotiq is challenging you to upload a pic to show how you plan to Sparkle Louder this New Year's Eve, whether it's a glam outfit, you and your girlfriends, or a selfie.  Then you can use Hpnotiq's "SparkleLouder" app to make your photo shine, like mine above.  I just uploaded my pic to the Hpnotiq SparkleLouder site, then used the easy tools to add some sparkle.

Each sparkly photo entry gives you more weekly chances to win one of 20 EFFY Diamond & Blue Topaz Rings Sweepstakes Prizes (four each week).  Not only can you win an EFFY ring, but the entry that Sparkles the Loudest will win the Grand Prize: A New Year’ s Eve trip for you and three girlfriends to New York City for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the ball drop in Times Square!  Wouldn't NYE in NYC be so fun?  To enter or for more details, visit http://www.hpnotiq.com/SparkleLouderContest. Hpnotiq’s SparkleLouder contest runs from November 4 - December 8, 2013. When you share your SparkleLouder photos on social media, be sure to use the hashtag #SparkleLouder.

Dress - LC Lauren Conrad (another cute option from LC) / Belt - unknown (similar) / Bracelet - BaubleBar / Heels - Shoe Mint 

If you want to Sparkle Louder this NYE, you can add a little sparkle with accessories like I did, with some fancy sparkly makeup, or with some fun sparkling Hpnotic cocktails!

Right now I can still manage a dress without tights, but considering Chicago's weather, I'm thinking I'll probably have to wear tights and some cute booties instead.  If I won a trip to NYC for NYE though, I'd probably break out the sequined dress from last year.  I mean, hello, I would have to!  Have you decided what you're wearing for NYE?  How do you plan to sparkle this New Year's Eve?
