It is time for the Holiday Reds in your closet to come out for the parties and dinners happening this month. Jennifer from Just Add Glam invited me and a couple of bloggers to a holiday event she was hosting in Marin. I dressed up in this Diane Von Furstenberg dress and invited my arm candy aka Armando to "Meet Me Under the Mistletoe." Armando and I had a blast on this date. We took our photos in a booth, won gifts in a raffle, and even had our tarot cards read! And we ate yummy mini bundt cakes from Nothing Bundt Cake. The best part was hanging out not only with Armando, but also with my blogger friends! We were the loudest group during the whole event and we were joking and laughing the whole time (and it was a dry party!)
I went to a flower shop to buy some mistletoe earlier that day, but they did not have any in stock yet. I tried a Christmas tree lot later that evening and still nothing. (It's almost Christmas, these places need to step it up pronto!) Instead I came out of the flower shop with the red Poinsettia flowers. Back home, my mom will buy a big pot of Poinsettias around the holidays, so to me these flowers really do say Christmas and are part of my family's tradition. I put them in the center of our meeting table to spread some holiday cheer in the office after using them in my outfit shoot.
I painted my nails with the Dimepiece silver nail polish by Floss Gloss. I've tried it before when I've had a mani/pedi at Beauty Company and love how it reminds me of the glitter on Christmas ornaments. I never would paint my nails before and it is now something I don't mind trying on my own. All my money would be directed to clothes but I like that I've discovered a beauty product that makes a statement and is inexpensive. I should note I am not getting paid for sharing this product, but it is something I genuinely love. Who doesn't want sparkle in their day-to-day life?
Hope that you are having fun dressing up for your holiday parties! My office will be having is Holiday Party this week and I am already planning my outfit.
Until next time,
