Tis the Season to Sparkle

Hello Glam & Sassy loves! The holidays are in full swing and I love this time of year! I listen to Christmas music from Thanksgiving till New Year’s and you can find me singing along if you pull up next to me in my car.  After moving to Southern California from New Jersey, it took me a year or two to find the Christmas spirit amidst the sun and the seventy degree temps. Now at the first twinkle light sighting, I am planning parties to attend, gifts to buy, and outfits to wear. I also have found there are a lot of sales prior to Christmas, so I no longer have to wait to see what Santa brings and settle for the leftover styles on December 26th   …and now neither do you! Check out a few of my fave looks for holiday that you will enjoy now and straight into 2017.

Red Hot

This year, I actually embraced the traditional “anything red” for holiday parties. I tend to skip that for several reasons one being I am not at all traditional and second, I prefer pink all day long to red. Then I found this festive blouse from W by Worth that is THE perfect red for me and for anyone. It is a blue red, not an orange red, and that makes it work on all skin tones. While wearing this top, I felt like I was draped in pink’s grown up sexier sister and now I will be buying more pieces in this daring color.  Cheers to that!

Dream Guy

I have had one true love in my life. When we were introduced a while back, I knew one day I would have him. I thought it to be a bit outrageous at first, but after the first touch and feel and smell, I knew it was love at first sight. It was totally worth the wait and I still feel that way and probably will for the rest of my life. This love of mine is Louis Vuitton.  I am not a label whore, but these bags do last forever and therefore the price is (somewhat) easily justifiable. This LV tote comes in handy for daytime outings in the city and as my travel survival kit on any flight because it is strong and sexy and feels so good! Just like my perfect man!

Sparkle on Sister

I believe we Glam & Sassy girls should sparkle every day, but there is no better time than the present. I love sequins and glitter and anything that shines. The sparkle trend isn’t limited to fashion and I am obsessed with glitter manicures! I added glitter to every other nail and a soft pink on the others. I like how versatile it is and since it is gel, I will be rocking this straight into the New Year as I fist pump into 2017. Hey, you can take the girl out of Jersey, but you can’t take Jersey out of the girl!

Which of these looks and trends do you hope to find under your tree?  Whether I was naughty or nice this year, I’ll never tell. But one thing is for sure… I was definitely Glam & Sassy!

Short Cut

My hair is long.  I like it long.  It took years to grow it to this length, so I do not foresee myself cutting it any time soon.  The only time I don’t love it, is when I am in hurry and have to wash, dry, and style it. That takes FOREVER  and every minute in the morning is precious (since I am not a morning person as mentioned in a previous post One More Night).  Thankfully, it’s not necessary to wash your hair everyday and truth be told, it always seems to look better on day 2!   Is that true for any of you lovely ladies out there too?  On shampoo days, I will do my makeup, drink my coffee, even walk my dog with wet hair so that it will begin to air dry and not take so long to blow out. My arms get tired wrestling with the hair dryer and brush so saving some time here is the goal.   That works fairly well except now it’s too chilly in the mornings to be walking around town with a wet head  (it may be in the 50s, but it’s all relative and FEELS cold).  I have found a better short cut to my drying time that I wanted to share .  It is a soft and lightweight microfiber Go2Towel.  I saw it online and was sent one to try.  Once out of the shower, I gently squeezed the excess water from my hair and wrapped it up in this.  I left it on while I moisturized face and body and it absorbed most of the moisture very quickly. The other reason I really like this towel is the very Glam & Sassy pink color!  You can check it out on their website. It has several other uses like for the beach and yoga and is great for travel. I was also thinking this would be a great gift idea…not for me, since I already have one, but I can give you my Christmas list if you were going to send me something haha!  Thanks for reading and have a Glam & Sassy day!
