7 Sparkly Things I Love

SparkleChristmas 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.

Phone Scene

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.

Iris: Really?

Graham: Find out how she is.

Iris: Okay.

[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?

Amanda: Sure.

Iris: Okay, bye.
