Christmas is over, but the holiday spirit is still in full swing. New Year’s Eve is days away, and it’s important to add a little sparkle to your life. As this saying goes, you mustn’t be afraid to sparkle brightly, dearies. Wishing you all the best for the upcoming New Year. Happy 2015 a little early.
Here are 7 sparkly things I love.
#1: Sparkly Mantles
I wanted to do something different this holiday season with my mantle. I mixed things from nature with items from Homestead Gardens and Pottery Barn. Love the sparkly result.
#2: Sparkly Shoes
I notice shoes, do you? These sparklers will make you want to dance all night. From Anthropologie.
#3: Sparkly Clothing
You only live once, and New Year’s Eve only happens once a year. Dare sparkle in the moonlight. This dress is from rstyle.com.
#4: Sparkly Nails
No matter your age, a little sparkle never hurt a girl.
#5: Sparkly Bags
Why not add a little twinkle as you walk around and shop or meet friends for dinner? This one from Macy’s is purple and sparkles.
#6: Sparkly Earrings
Tiffany’s earrings are the sparkliest.
#7: Sparkly Dialogue
Dialogue in films doesn’t get much better than this classic scene in “The Holiday” among Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Cameron Diaz. Truly sparkly.
Graham: And what did you say?
Iris: I asked her to hold. Can I call you back?
Graham: I can hold while you speak to her.
Graham: Find out how she is.
[Iris switches call]
Iris: My brother wants to know how you are.
Amanda: Can you tell him I’m good and that I’m just taking Charlie for a walk in the village. Um, what’s he been up to? Did he say?
Iris: I’m not sure. Do you want me to ask him?
Amanda: Uh, sure.
Iris: Okay. Hold please.
[Iris switches call again]
Iris: I can’t believe that you have had sex with the woman staying in my house!
Amanda: [Gasps] He told you that?
Iris: Oh, my God!
Amanda: Oh, my God!
Iris: Oh, my God! I thought I was talking to Graham! Can you just hold, please? I’m terribly sorry.
[Iris switches calls again]
Iris: I can’t believe you had sex with Amanda! The one thing she asked me was, ‘Are there any men in your town?’, and I assured her that there were not. And then you meet her and immediately get into her knickers!
Amanda: Still me.
Iris: Bollocks! I must have lost him. Amanda, I am so sorry.
[Call waiting beeps]
Iris: Can I call you back?
Iris: Okay, bye.
