New Year’s Needs

28 Dec


1. New Year’s Nifty Nails:  Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle.  That is the absolute must for your pretty little fingers.  Whether it’s one statement nail, or all of your fingers, be sure to add some glitter.  I happen to love the above nail style.  Simply pick your base color, with a matching glitter tone for the tip.  Click on the photo for more information!


2. The Perfect Dress: A number of people wait until the last minute for the perfect NYE dress.  It’s a little late to online order but there is still hope.  Visit the trendy. not so pricey stores and you can definitely find something fab.  (Forever21, H&M, Charlotte Russe, Express, etc.)  NYE is a time to reinvent your look.. you can wear something louder and crazier than usual.  Take advantage!  Get that sequin, leather of feather dress.  Just remember, it’s not about WHAT you wear, it’s HOW you wear it.


3. Snazzy Shoes: As most of you Princess’s will be wearing dresses, I think booties or pumps are your best bet.  Just remember, not everyone can pull off the open-toe look with tights.  So if you are planning on wearing tights, make sure you get a chunky bootie!  If your dress is simple, maybe add a fringe bootie or studded pump for some spunk!


4.  Happy Hair:  You can’t go wrong with a fresh blow out.  But, if you are looking to save some money, stick with a curling iron or even a bun.  Depending on the neckline of your dress, a bun could be perfect and classic.  Get an awesome large earring if you decide on a bun!  Click on the photo above for a sock bun tutorial.  H&M and beauty supply stores also sell bun pieces!  If you prefer to wear your hair down, get a small curling iron or wand and jazz up your hair.  I happen to love this look and will be doing it myself!


5. JEWELS: The one thing I love most.  As a jewelry merchandiser, I obsess over funky, interesting pieces.  As I said above, if you are sticking with a bun, make sure you get some big earrings!  If you like big earrings, stick with a lot of armswag.  But, if you prefer a large statement necklace, throw on some studs.  Don’t overdo it.  Keep it funky and neat!  Click on the photo above for a link to my Chloe & Isabel page.  You will most likely not receive the merchandise in time, but get some inspiration!




Christmas Day Dining

27 Dec

Christmas Day Dining

After this week, I’d be okay with not looking at food ever again. (That’s a huge lie.)

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. But, for the first year in my older age, I am finally starting to become more excited about giving gifts, than receiving gifts. I was so pumped to give my family and boyfriend their presents this year!

I received so many wonderful gifts and had such a great time with my family. My younger sister started the day off by serving cinnabon pancakes, egg muffins and mimosas.. which was followed by opening gifts!

Above is my look for Christmas dinner. Very casual, with my brand new flats and watch.

Striped Sweater – Princess Vera/Kohl’s
Spiked Flats – Unionbay/Marshall’s
Beaded Bracelet – Chloe & Isabel
Skull Camo Watch – Betsey Johnson/Macy’s
