NYE

we resolve to…

Here at The Glitter Life, we believe in home improvement, self improvement, wardrobe improvement…life improvement in general. We love the start of a new year – it gives us a little extra push to make some positive changes in our lives.

New Years Resolutions
six steps to a better us.

1. Get organized. Try as we might, we’ve never been able to use the “task” function on our phones effectively. We’re paper people, and we like to check stuff off. We love this pretty to-do list from Sugar Paper, now available here.

2. Live healthier by drinking one pressed juice a day. You guys know we love Roots Pressed Juices.

3. Develop a signature scent for our homes and our boutiques. We vote for Voluspa Crisp Champagne, now available here.

4. Give more of our time, our money, our talents and our love.

5. Take care of our skin. We each have a Clarisonic, but we aren’t great about using them every day. This year we vow to make them part of our daily routines.

6. Cook. We both like to whip up party appetizers (also hereherehere and here) but it’s rare that we cook weeknight meals. Stay tuned for some healthy, easy recipes you can make any night of the week.

What changes are you making for 2014? Tweet or Instagram us @glitter_blog_xo.

PS – After ringing in the new year separately (check out our instagram for pics), we met up and took some pretty amazing photos. Maybe we should add another resolution to our list: Take one decent photo together in 2014.

friday five: nye essentials.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

This week’s Friday Five is dedicated to New Year’s Eve essentials. After all, it’s a big night and you need to look/feel amazing! Here we go…

1. Chain-strap bag. NYE is not the night to lug around your trusty tote. You need a small, clutch-sized bag with a chain, so you can sling it over your shoulder  when necessary. We both love our Tory Burch Reva clutches–J’s is gold, mine is black. Those exact styles aren’t available any more…so why don’t you go for this one?

Tory Burch Logo Clutch
keeps your hands free to hold a cocktail and noise-maker thingy.

2. Bling. We believe strongly in the power of bling. Whether you’re wearing jeans and a sweater, sleek black pants and a sparkly top, or a full-on cocktail dress, NYE is the night to bring out your biggest, brightest bling. We love these earrings from Social Statesboro.

call 912.681.7008 to order.
Blingy Earrings
both pairs are only $18! score.

3. Stay-put Lip Gloss. Your lip gloss will have to last through cocktails, dinner, more cocktails, champagne, and a smooch or two. Avon Perfect Wear Extracting Lip Gloss stays put for–wait for it–eight hours. Actually, according to Oprah’s testers, it lasted for for ELEVEN hours, with no reapplying. Either way, this will get you through the night.

eat, drink and be merry. this gloss isn’t going anywhere.

4. Tights. Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you have to wear ski pants. Keep warm and stay stylish with a pair of patterned tights. These will jazz up your LBD and–bonus–smooth you out.

Spanx Tights
pretty pattern + Spanx technology.

5. Wine Wipes. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again…wine wipes. These stain-erasing cloths are a must for your NYE bag. Say cheers to pearly whites!

Pearly Wipes
pearly wipes give us something to smile about.
