In a spin?
Lost your sparkle?
😬Often at this time of year it seems like everyone else is sparkling joy
😬Enjoying the 'champagne moments'
Remember to fill you glass😉
Never mind being party season ready (my last post) are you ready? I get to this time of year and get a tightness in my throat as it dawns on my I have done nothing about Christmas Day. If I pause and ignore the low level panic it's no different to any other year.
I've got this.
I have decorated - one of my favourite things. I love dressing the house for winter. As we come to the longest nights there is a comfort in the smell of pine needles the twinkling lights, bouncing off of the baubles scattered through the house.
As you know I love sparkle and shine - metallics are a neutral and work at any time of year. At this time of year they hold their own. Providing a lift both physically and mentally. I have a touch of metallic or sparkle in everything I wear - an advent calendar of sparkle and shine. So I urge you to embrace your inner magpie and go for it.
Thing you can try
Jewellery - this can be anything pick a piece a statement piece can make the everyday less every day.
A piece that sparkles, so sequin, lurex or metallic. Perhaps you have a top or dress that you 'save' for going out. We all have one tucked away. Layer it. A shift dress can be teamed with jeans or trousers with a jumper or jacket layered over.
Footwear - if you are looking for a new pair of boots try something with stud or a metallic. Honestly every time you look down at your feel you will get a buzz and you can wear them with anything. I have a pair I wear on repeat all year around.
Makeup - a splash of glitter over the eyelid or brow is and instant highlighter. I find it more effective than a highlighter as it does not highlight my wrinkles. :)
As I write I am looking at my hands - yikes - time to get out the polish and yes it will be metallic.
Clothes have the power to transform how we feel about ourselves.
You know yourself when you put on a dress that makes you feel unstoppable💫
You have got this!
If after all of this you still think your wardrobe is lacking pizzazz I have you covered.
