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.
What do you pack for an epic adventure on Royal Caribbean’s fancy new ship? I had no idea. I was mind boggled, and entirely overwhelmed with every activity and excursion planned for the trip. Add the Fall theme, but 70 degree New York temps into the mix, and my fall packing plans were thrown for a loop. I hope you read up on my previous posts, chatting about our fancy trip aboard Anthem of the Seas. If not, you can play catch up, here.
It’s about time to ring in the New Year, Beauties! The biggest question on our minds? Where will we celebrate, and what on earth shall we wear? Decisions, decisions. I don’t know about you, but my New Year’s Eve plans are always spontaneous. Of course, I have been dreaming of the perfect dress. Inspired by a fabulous, crystallized, Rhinestone Mask that I found at Bebe, I created an entire look for a New Years Eve Masquerade Ball. The mask is absolutely perfect for the occasion. I love the dramatic look of it.
Baublebar is one of my favorite accessory boutiques. It began as an online jewelry shop, but recently, Baublebar opened a pop up shop in Soho. This week, Baublebar had a fabulous DIY Swarovski event hosted by Grace Atwood from Stripes and Sequins. During the event, I purchased the Emerald Iced Bracelet, and was given a small, jewelry box to embellish with Swarovski crystals. I have a love for anything that sparkles, so you can imagine my excitement when I was able to crystallize my own jewelry box.
