Glitter and Sparkle Just Make me Smile




from Martha Stewart

It's not really December if I don't pull out the sparkly stuff... so I just wanted to share some things that I think make this time of year extra special. The Starburst Statement Necklace is sooooo incredible for a holiday party, and the hairpin from Etsy is an inexpensive way of adding a (somewhat) similar dramatic effect to your holiday party attire.

As you guys know, I love decorating...the candles shown on Marthastewart.com are gorgeous but I bet you can make them at home pretty easily. Another thing you can do to make your home instantly festive is tie some glittery bows around everything from candles, picture frames, or branches on your tree (see below). I got these bows for 2.99$ at Century 21 but you could find them at Michael's or probably even the Dollar Store.


I would adorn myself and my home in glitter and sparkle even if I lived all alone on an iceberg somewhere in the middle of the ocean...Looking at special things simply just makes me happy!

    While I think I will skip decorating this year (yeah total Grinch) I HAVE added a couple of glittery items to my wardrobe. Well more like sequined scarves, shoes and shirt - my challenge now is to wear them during daytime.
