  • Loving {Forever}: New Year’s Glitz and Glam

    December 29, 2011 | 1 Comment »

    I don't know what it is this year but getting dressed up is more fun than ever. There are few fun aspects of the aging process but one of them is that I care less and less about what other people think of my get-ups. Now the going out part: that's getting to be a little less fun, but who cares? Even if you're just hanging out with a couple of friends on New Year's Eve, give yourself a crazy manicure and stick a feather in your cap. It's a new year and this is not the time to play it safe.

    So, why don't you…
    …don a wild hat and some serious party lips. My two favorites are Funny Face and Schiap by Nars.

    …wear a party dress with bedazzled kicks. Or make your own.

    tease your hair, pile on the sequins.

    …throw some ballons in the air (or under your skirt).

    …be the hit of the party with the most ridiculously awesome cake ever.

    …cover yourself in glitter from head to toe. I'm going to do my nails with this magical Holographic polish.

    …bust out some Sophia minis. And drink them in the can! They're cuter that way.

    …make your own confetti and streamers. Throw them everywhere!

    And don't forget to kiss someone at midnight!

    1. OMG, Kayte, I LOVE that cake. That would be incredible for someone’s first birthday cake… I wonder if I could do super mini cupcake versions.
