Whew!  I feel like we made it!  Christmas is just a few days away and hopefully you have all your gifts under the tree or on the way to you.  Now, let’s focus on fun and what to wear New Years Eve!

Because my birthday is December 30th, we typically do something low key for NYE but I still love to dress up with a bit of sparkle and celebrate.  This year I want to help you celebrate and toast the New Year with a gorgeous set of champagne flutes and champagne cooler from Juliska.

To enter to win:

  1. Subscribe to my newsletter here,
  2. Follow me on Instagram, and
  3. Comment on the Instagram post with your New Year’s Eve plans.

I’ll announce the winner here and on the Instagram post on December 26th so we can ship these goodies to the winner in time for NYE!

Below, I’ve created a boutique of shimmery pieces to ring in the new year.  I love this lurex highlighted chiffon dress from Veronica Beard that just went on sale!  Lucky you!

If you are going to be more on the casual side, this post has lots of options for what to wear with jeans and still look glamorous.  This one has a big selection of my favorite LBDs.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.  It is such a special time for our family to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ and reflect His grace and blessings.  I hope you are able to be with those you love as well.

Tomorrow, my last Christmas Newsletter will go out with all my favorite recipes.  Then, I’ll be back on the 26th with a new post on all the after-Christmas sales that you’ll want to know about!

Cheers and Merry Christmas!




Thank you to Juliska for partnering on this giveaway.  All selections and opinions are my own.

Color Crush: Coral

Color Crush: Coral

Lately, I’ve found myself having a color crush on coral! It is such a flattering color on all skin tones. I love that coral comes in so many shades! It can lean more pink, orange or red depending upon the fabric. You can shop all of my coral picks in my boutique!
