For The Girl Who Loves Sparkle

Welcome to the first full week of December! This year I wanted to try something new to me, holiday gift guides. In fact, I have almost a whole week of them, each with a different theme. Maybe a little narcissistic on my part, but each list is inspired by a idea or hobby that holds a special place in my heart. I had an absolute blast making these and I hope you enjoy perusing the selections. To kick things off, one of the great fashion loves of my life: Sparkle. Very few things make me happy the way a little shimmer or glitter can. Rough morning? Put on a pair of sparkle shoes. Want to feel a little fancy? Swipe on some eye shimmer. Giving someone like me sparkle is like giving them happiness in a box. It’s a pick-me-up just waiting to be deployed.

Now I know many people like sparkle, but hate how glitter can get EVERYWHERE, so I tried to pick items that would have minimal glitter fallout. I hope you enjoyed my first gift guide and stay tuned to see what I have in store for the rest of the week.


Beautiful Baubles and Shay Mitchell

I am a notorious binge-watching fiend. Crappy week at the office, family drama, hormonal, and out of chocolate; whatever minor life drama I have can send me scurrying for my Netflix queue so I can disconnect for a bit. A while back, my program of choice was Pretty Little Liars, so I was delighted to discover that the new Guest Bartender at Bauble Bar was Shay Mitchell. Along with the collection being so many of the things I love in my jewelry (sparkle, globally inspired shapes, ethereal styling), it was like getting to see an old friend. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

I even still have a few of my more elaborate ones saved in my jewelry box.bb1 bb2 bb3 bb10I mean, if there was ever a collection that could make a girl feel like royalty, it would be this one.  With so many glittering pieces, I find myself at a loss as to what to purchase first. I also find myself trying to come up with reasons why I might “need” this or that piece. I mean, the holidays are coming up, and there are going to be plenty of reasons that a girl might need a little extra sparkle. Right?
