Good morning! As I had previously told you, I will be featuring a number of super talented blogging friends posts over the next few weeks as we begin our move. I am excited to have a special  blogging friend, Jan from The French Tangerine here today. Jan has a great sense of style, a fun sense of humor, excellent and elegant taste as evidenced by her beautiful home often featured on her blog posts and above all else is a warm, kind and friendly person. 

I am so happy she is here today to talk about “getting her sparkle on” and New Year’s Eve Magic! And what better time to do a post on all that glitters than the week approaching New Years Eve. Love this post and Jan many thanks for stopping by. For those of you not familiar with French Tangerine…please do stop by, I promise you will be thrilled you did! Her blog is chock full of beauty, interiors, antiques, travel, and she regularly features exquisite interiors of homes of her friends and family. There is always something fabulous to see over at The French Tangerine!

(I will feature my usual Thursday post and house updates tomorrow)

This post is dedicated to my daughter. Although I’m guest posting for The Enchanted Home, I can’t help but bring my daughter into this somehow because of her love of glitter! When she was little, she could spot an item with glitter from across the room and wanted to include glitter in her life whenever possible. She demanded lots of glitter as Cheer Captain, and somehow, glitter makes it into her Halloween costume each and every year. So, when Tina had New Year’s Eve Magic as an option for a guest post, I jumped on it! I mean, glitter is the perfect answer to NYE Magic!
A gold glitter dress…
with a matching mouth…
I don’t know what that stuff is, but my daughter would wear it!
I scored this iPhone cover from J. Crew for a stocking stuffer. However it was found, unpackaged immediately and has already been used for 2 weeks! You should have heard the gasp when it was spotted? and then a whispered, “glitter..”
Another awesome glittery ensemble for NYE might include…
Gold glitter top
Gold glitter pants
Gold glitter shoes
Glitter for the eyes…
Glitter for the toes…
Glitter for the tips…
and glitter for the lips…

Start planning your special New Year’s Eve ensemble soon, and be sure to include some gold glitter!

Now that’s what I am talking about. I am suddenly craving those gold shoes, that fabulous gown, a little shiny gold phone cover and what the heck  might as well go all the way…..and throw in that amazing sparkly toenail polish too!
Jan, great post and many thanks for being my guest today. Don’t forget to go over and say hi to Jan and introduce yourself……I can promise you too, will become a regular over at the French Tangerine! Click here to visit.
Enjoy your day……..

Jan is a sweetheart. Love her. That iphone cover is so cute. I got an iphone cover from JCrew and love it. I have a niece who even at 22 loves anything with glitter! I’ll have to pick up that cover for her. xo


Hi Tina, thank you for the introduction, love all the glitter especially the top and iphone case (daughter would love both). I agree in that NYE is the one night where you can go out of the box a little and add a little sparkle even if its not normally your thing. Such a pretty post. Thank you.

This was fun! Iam incidentally wearing a red sparkle top on New Years Eve, my brother has a big party every year and I think sparkles are the perfect choice for such a special celebration. Glad to meet The French Tangerine.

WOOOOOOOOOO! You are addressing the queen of glitter here! I LOVE IT and I don’t care how old I am, give me a pair of glittered shoes ( I actually two pair and wear them to SCHOOL!) and sometimes you will see a piece of glitter in my house since I have an Etsy business and from my basement issues out glitter creations!

Nice to meet you here! Thank you for taking over our dear Tina’s post while she prepares to MOVE IN!!! Anita

Those glittery toes are so neat! I wish I had the guts to pull it off….this is making me rethink my boring all black New Years Eve outfit though, maybe a little sparkle is in order, fun post. Thank and a Happy New Year to you both.

I generally don’t like glitter or sparkle but will give in on New Years Eve, if we are going to a party which this year we are. Our country club is hosting a disco ball, so I bought my first ever sequined dress, now after seeing this post I am wondering if I should take it all the way and paint my nails in a sparkly gold too. Is there such a thing as too much sparkle? Happy new year.

Perfect timing from Jan for the glitter, just in time for NYE. Maybe a little sparkle on my tee, just a little for this older gal!
Hope the move is going well Tina.

Sending continued good thoughts on the move Tina!

Tina, I love all your guests posts! This has me excited for New Years Eve, we are hosting a small party for 6 couples and going all out, the colors are black and gold so you better believe I have plenty of gold sparkles being used this weekend both in how I am decorating and what I am wearing. Happy 2012-
