Have you started to take down your Christmas tree yet? Some people take down their tree as soon as Christmas night rolls around. Then, there is another group who wait until New Year’s day to take down their Christmas tree. I usually fall into the second group because years ago I heard somewhere that it was bad luck to take down your tree until New Year’s day. I am not sure what the reasoning was but I love the look of a tree, so I will leave it up as long as possible. My poor tree has been “up” for two years, so I think that I need to take it down this year finally. Lol! The poor thing has been knocked over numerous times and is missing several ornaments (broken during the falls), so it is starting to look pitiful. I love the tree, it is a champagne color, and I like it better without any ornaments for the soft glow that it puts out. But, I think that January 1st it will finally have to come down, I hope that I left it up long enough to not have any bad luck. Lol!Have you ever heard that anything black is hard to photograph? You can’t see details in a photograph of black items. Today’s look is an example of what I would wear for a New Year’s Eve party. When I think of New Year’s Eve style, I think of wearing something with sparkle. This black lurex turtleneck has a beautiful metallic thread in it that gives a festive shimmer to the sweater. I adjusted the lighting of the photo to show you the sparkle in the top. I don’t have on a lot of jewelry since I opted to wear this metallic scarf. I bought this champagne/silver scarf at Cato Fashions, but I don’t see it on their website. There is a black and red one on their website, go here to see it. The jewelry that I did add is the Tessie earrings and a few bling magnetic bracelets. I layered several of the Pamela and Kayson bracelets in peach and gold rhinestones together for this effect. I loved these foiled medallion print pants when I first saw them a couple of weeks ago. They are comfortable and have a lot of stretch to them. I like that they are pull-on also which is fabulous since most of us might have eaten more than we need during the Christmas season. Lol! I ordered these online, but I ended up exchanging them for one size smaller. The smaller size now seems tight, so I must be in-between sizes, or maybe I ate a tad more fruitcake than I needed. Hopefully, I will lose a few pounds before New Year’s Eve so they will fit better. I wanted to make a toast to ring in the New Year, but I didn’t have any Champagne in the house. I don’t let the details stop me, so I added some watered down apple cider to my glass to make the toast. I try to pick a Word of the Year and this year I had two words that keep popping up. I guess that I will have WORDS of the Year this year. Lol! My words for 2019 are Growth and Caring. I can see lots of applications for these words, and I am bubbling with excitement for what is to come in 2019. I predict that it is going to be a great year!!! A New Year is the perfect time to think about what you would like to change for the better. There are a few things that I want to work on in the coming new year. Some of my goals are small, and some are HUGE, and that is the way I like it best. All of the small changes can end up creating huge differences. If you have been thinking of making a small change, such as taking better care of your skin, then let me know. If you are thinking of making a HUGE change such as starting a business of your own, then we need to talk. Either way, I am your girl, and I can get you started off on the right foot. I have a HUGE sign on bonus for anyone interested in the business. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
