'Tis the Season to Sparkle

No matter the season, I love anything that sparkles.  Whether it is the glitter ballet flats that I wear on casual errands, the stardust iPad case that I wore the zipper out of, or my umpteen sequined, shimmery, and sparkling iphone cases, I find any excuse to layer on some added flash. The holidays are no exception and this time of year is a more perfect time than any to break out a sequined sweater, dazzle up your manicure, or add some shimmer to your eyes.  You can add some eye-catching glimmer to any look this holiday season.

One of the easiest way to add sparkle to your look is with your make-up.  Whether it is glitter polish, shimmering shadow, or sparkly lip gloss (or in my case, all of the above) make-up is a great way to add some frosting to your look.  

Holiday Party Look

There is no better time than a Holiday or New Year's Eve Party to add multiple elements of sparkle.  I love gold with blush . . . but love the combo  even more with sequins and pave crystals.  You can even go one step further with a glitter clutch and other accent jewelry pieces.

(I must admit that I thought the Kate Spade bow bracelet was a ring and envisioned it as such when I styled this look)

Casual Christmas

Christmas is typically a relaxed casual day in my family. (okay a little more casual than relaxed)  While entertaining I want to be both comfortable and stylish.  Nothing says comfortable more than flats, jeans and a sweatshirt, but when those flats are covered in glitter, you have a killer half moon manicure and some simple shimmery make-up you'll looked pulled together until the very last guest leaves.

You can continue your glitter spree into the office with some subtle pieces.  Depending on your work environment the safest way to add some sparkle is with studs, a necklace and crystal cat eye glasses . . . and what better necklace to wear than a simple "believe" statement around the holidays?!?!  You can also add some glitter wrapped wedges and sparkling iPad case.
