Hello holidays! It’s gift giving season and you currently have sugar plums dancing in your head, I’m sure. If you’re anything like me, you walk into stores completely mobbed with people, you love everything, buy nothing, and walk right back out. The twinkle lights are lovely, the music is cheerful, yet the gift lists and shopping can be overwhelming.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and it always has been. Family is the most important part of my life, and there’s nothing I love more than spending time with them. The holiday is right around the corner and we want to know how you celebrate. What are your favorite traditions? Do you celebrate with family or friends? Are you hosting a Thanksgiving dinner this year? If so, I’ve gathering a few of my favorite serving pieces to make your Thankgiving Day fancy and fabulous. I love these pieces and I hope your guests will too! We have a few, upcoming posts for the holiday so we hope you stay tuned, and celebrate with us. As always Beauties, I’m thankful for your love and support. Wishing you a safe and happy holiday. xx
All aboard! We have been invited on an adventure with Royal Caribbean, and are currently counting down the days before we set sail on their latest and greatest ship, the Anthem of the Seas. I’ve never been on a cruise before, so I’m excited for this one. With a boat full of a few of my blogger besties, fabulous food and fun activities, it should be quite the ride.
Here’s what my morning routine consisted of during our tropical stay at the Four Seasons Maui. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. We had no agenda and made no plans. Generally in New York, I wake up in a state of panic, bolting off to work, the gym, or some other commitment I’ve made. I’m terrible at relaxation and I’m quickly bored by empty spaces and silence. I keep as busy as possible and that’s exactly the way I like it. I over plan, over commit, and over think absolutely everything in my life (I sound like a gem, huh?). However, during our stay in paradise, I didn’t care about any sort of a plan. I hardly worked out, and somehow I was ok with it all. In fact, I was more than ok with it…I loved it. It was a sense of relaxation that I’ve never felt in my life. I suppose it’s necessary to give your body a break from time to time. A little R & R was just what the doctor ordered.
National Lipstick Day has come and gone (who knew that existed?), and I regret the fact the I did not throw a lavish lipstick soirée for all of you beauties, here on Sleepless in Sequins. Rest assured, the day celebrating vibrant lip color has not been forgotten. So we will celebrate today.
Waking up in Vegas, I always feel a bit of a thrill. We were on a quick vaca for a few days, and stayed at The Signature Suites at MGM Grand hotel. In Vegas, you never know what to expect. I guess that’s what makes it fun. Everything seems so spontaneous to me. The restaurants, pools, and hotels are beyond extravagant and life is full of overindulgence. The whole Vegas strip feels like a giant adult playground. Go big, or go home, right?
We are heading out on a quick little Vegas vaca and I’m busy packing, or actually just shopping for our trip. I can’t seem to tear myself away from Shopbop’s swimwear selection. I may as well throw a full on pool party for all of the swimwear pieces I’ve chosen. This is beneficial to you, in that I’ve found a few (or more than a few), fancy swimwear styles that you will love. No need to shop at a store, or scroll any further. Stop, drop, and shop these looks immediately. Then invite me to your pool party! Enjoy the sunshine, Beauties. xo
Spring has sprung and it’s time to celebrate! As I peruse my closet, I wonder what I really wore last spring. I’m definitely ready for a whole new, fancy wardrobe and I hope you are too. I took the liberty of finding some pieces that inspire me, and I that I think you’ll love as well. The pastel colors are just perfect for the season. I’m also loving bright brilliant colors as well as intricate prints. I have an accessory obsession, so you’ll find a few fun pieces to play with. Happy shopping, Beauties! xx
Hello Beauties! Here in NYC, we are currently braving winter storm Juno. The weather teams and news crews seem to be going crazy. I’ll admit however, that I had the most beautiful walk home from the gym tonight. It was late. The streets were dark and quiet, with only the twinkling lights on the trees and street lamps to illuminate the way. I watched the snowflakes gracefully float to the ground as I walked. Instead of the chaos the news has been reporting, the night felt so peaceful to me. These are the little moments I love about New York. All of our transportation has been shut down here. So, what exactly does that mean? Snow dayyyy!
It’s almost time to ring in the New Year, Beauties! If you are hosting a New Year’s bash for friends or loved ones, you may be on a last minute shopping spree for the perfect entertaining pieces. Inspired by a theme of metallics, we’ve created an New Year’s Eve party guide to help you with your party planning. Wishing you a fabulous party, my hostesses. Clink your glass of bubbly and toast to 2015! xo
