cupcakes and champagne

I have always believed in those belonging together, like peas and carrots, biscuits and gravy, etc, etc. I enjoyed the theme so much, I had my own little get together to celebrate 2010 in such a style.  This year however, will be much more laid back and enjoyable! I am very thrilled to spend this coming NYE with some new friends and with some dear ones, as well.  

On the champagne front, I have been turned on to something quite delicious! My dear friend, Brooke Beck, brought over some Verdi Raspberry Sparkletini to our Saints watch party on Monday and I LOVED it.  Spumante Champagne is affordable, maybe not so respected, is my absolute favorite because I prefer the sweeter sparkling wine genre.  Add in the raspberry, and its DELISH!

So with beverages covered, after the cupcakes are iced, you have to decide what to wear!  Our party this year is white/black/sequin.  If you know me, you know that is right up my alley.   It encompasses the majority of my wardrobe, but since its a special occasion, I might dig to the back of the cave to find recyclable.  If you still are unsure of what to wear, here are some ideas:

First, the classic LBD with a little frill, belt it and accessorize.  You already have the dress, just glam it up with the silver bling bling.  You can't have too much, just channel the Time's Square NYE ball drop.

Next outfit- The BEKAH outfit, is similar to what I will wear.  Throwing in the color with the aforementioned sparkle is key to representing yourself and reflecting your personality.  xoxo, GG

The next outfit is purely for the brave and inspired by my dearest friend, Carli, who is the only girl I know who could get in law school and rock sequin shorts.  I advise the tights, Gaga.

Well, whatever your New Year's Eve plans, I hope you spend time with someone you love, wear something sparkly, and most importantly, take the fresh start to look around and be grateful for the little things.  That is my resolution for the rest of my life, starting now.  Anyone else making resolutions? Hello, 2011, I hope you're ready for us.

lack of weefee

Happy almost 2011! My christmas vacation abroad, aka the other side of memphis, has left me without wifi, and because of such I have almost completely gone insane missing my macbook and blog sites. but alas, i am back! As I had the opportunity to pounce on my laptop yesterday, there was an opportunity for destruction. Woe is me! I put a small dent in the top of my almost brand new MacBook and literally wanted to die. Some quick checking the geek sites, I discovered it wasn't enough damage to warrant my 4 yr accidental insurance, but there were some quick fixes. One was incredibly intriuging. They make vinyl stickers that are matte and fabulous to go over the tops of the computer, and prevent further scratches and cover up previously made ones! How perfect.

They come in all colors and even numerous creative decorative ones.  My favorite site is Lana Kole's Etsy store... free shipping, and tons of colors. My favorite is the mint green.

beginning of blogging, ladies and gents.

it's the holiday season, and i've been scouring all over the internet for the past few weeks.  Christmas shopping for others, filling up online shopping carts of things i desperately want, and then closing the browser before too much damage is done.


I'm new to the blog world and through the past few weeks I have become obsessed with reading people's style, design, etc blogs and now I am giving it a run for my money.
And I plan on convincing others to join me in my journey.

So, Happy Weekend! One more week left to shop and that is what I plan to do for the rest of the week before Christmas! So if there is anyone out there reading this, thank you and WELCOME!
