One of my favorite things ever is to dress up for New Year’s Eve. As a mom, spending time dressing up is super important. I like to sparkle at least one night a year but this year I want the feeling to last all year long. Looking New Year’s party-ready every day isn’t just for moms, every woman deserves to look and feel their best every day of the year.
Spend some time pampering yourself
You need to feel relaxed and ready to have fun no matter the situation. Take one day a week to pamper yourself. I take a bubble bath and spend some time soaking. Just doing nothing makes all the difference in my hectic life.
I also might use a face mask to remove impurities and even give myself a mini manicure and pedicure to feel extra special.
Pick your outfit out beforehand
Don’t wait until the last minute to pick out your outfit. The trick to sparkling every day is to know what you’re wearing beforehand.
I love having a backup outfit ready, just in case though. It’s easier to rock a New Year’s Eve-inspired look when you feel confident in what you’re wearing.
Get your bling jewelry on
One thing I always do on New Year’s Eve to help me sparkle is I whip out the bling jewelry. I don’t overdo it, but you better believe that I will be looking as sparkly as possible. This is also something that can translate to any day of the year.
I love wearing a chunky sparkly necklace, a bling bracelet, and earrings that flash in the light. Jewelry is an easy way to feel sparkly and pretty all of the time.
I’ve teamed up with 7 Charming Sisters to bring you some sparkly jewelry ideas from their holiday collection that you may want to explore and get your bling on. Having seven different lines of jewelry, no matter your taste or occasion, 7 Charming Sisters has a piece you’re going love.
ETERNAL STYLE BRACELET
My bracelets have to be dainty and refined. I have such a small wrist that if they aren’t they are too distracting for me to wear sliding all over the place and clanking where they shouldn’t be. This Eternal Style Bracelet is the perfect size and adds just the right amount of twinkle to your wrists.
This rhinestone square cuff bracelet has a brilliant brushed silver finish that goes with everything and looks amazing all year round. Best of all it won’t get in the way while typing!
OPULENT GODDESS NECKLACE
Another one of my favorites is the Opulent Goddess Necklace. I love how this crystal-studded silver statement necklace can be added to a plain outfit and completely transform it into a showstopper. From jeans to dresses, it can glam up any outfit and make it fierce. More importantly, it will make you feel fierce!
The detailed layering of silver jewels is absolutely striking and will make you feel magical. You deserve your moment in the limelight!
I can really relate to 7 Charming Sisters. We all have different styles, moods, and personas at different times. Maybe one day your rocking your super mom persona at your kid’s baseball game by day and being the life of the party at night with your hubby. With 7 different lines of jewelry, you can find the perfect style no matter your mood. Most importantly, without breaking the bank! All of their jewelry is extremely affordable for us regular women that just want to look and feel their best. Something we all deserve.
Get that makeup girl
The most fun part of looking sparkly all year round is the makeup. The right makeup is going to complete your sparkly look and make you look absolutely stunning.
I like to do something a little different from my everyday look on actual New Year’s Eve. So I scour YouTube tutorials to see what will work for me best and attempt to recreate them. I can’t always recreate something right off the bat so it’s a good idea to find your inspiration early and practice it over the month of December. I like the dramatic look for New Year’s Eve with some sparkle, of course!
For an everyday look, just lessen the drama and just go for the sparkles.
Dress to Impress
As you put your whole shebang together, remember that you’re dressing to impress. Not to impress anyone else, but to impress yourself. It’s more than okay to feel pretty and sparkly. Throw on the glitter and make the sparkle happen. You can do things you don’t normally do to make yourself feel incredibly beautiful.
Keep one thing in mind though, don’t stress yourself out. This is all meant to be fun, so keep it that way! Keep it simple and make every day a night to remember.
Being sparkly means adding your own style. Maybe you want to wear a sparkly bow or a glitteriffic dress. Whatever it is that makes you happy and feel extra sparkly, do it! I gave you some basic tips, now run with them and make it a sparkly year to remember.
