A little sparkle goes a long way

Happy December!  

Hope you had a great weekend!  We had a great time celebrating my oldest son's birthday on Saturday with his party and birthday dinner out and then just enjoyed some family time yesterday after church.  I am loving seeing all the holiday shows and movies on TV...so much fun!  Last night hubby and I watched "Four Christmases" after the kids went to bed...it was a fun little Christmas comedy to end the day with.

Speaking of the holidays, nothing shouts the holidays like a little sparkle so when I saw this sweater online at J Crew Factory I knew it was the perfect way to start ringing in the holidays...


I was a little excited and decided to start celebrating with sequins the last day of November.


Original idea for this look can be found on Polyvore HERE

Pop Stone Ring-Banana Republic

It looks like there's quite a good sale at Anthro today so if you're on the lookout for a Christmas gift for someone (or yourself, whatever...heehee) make sure to take a look!  Here's a few pretty things I was happy to see go on sale:



(speaking of sparkle!)




Did you find anything that you just had to have??  Do tell!

I'm off to get my day started...today's to-do list includes a stop at the gym, working on getting my Christmas card list finished and doing laundry.  Just your typical Monday!

Have a great day!

  4. Cute sparkly sweater. Everything looks so good on you! I had to have the Metallic Lace Shirt and Cabachon Belt from Anthro...it wasn't on sale but thought it would be perfect for the holidays. All the small sizes were already sold out online. I lucked out and found one at my local Anthro (Roseville, CA) store. The sales person told me they just got the shirt in stock. Happy Holidays.
