    This is what I wear out to a Christmas Party Black panty hose, black dressy boots or heels, a pretty necklace, plain earrings to match. Cute scarf if you have one that matches! Being in a dress always love the look. I also wear glitter eyeshadow and black nail polish with gitter colors all over the top of the black. I will even put spray glitter in some parts of my hair everyone seems to always like the look.

    This is the time of year where I accessorize the most. I paint my toenails a pretty sparkling color with red underneath, I wear pretty dangly earrings like presents or something related to Christmas. How I bring radiance to my face is highlighting it with bronzer , mascara,some eye shadow and a little dash of glitter dust to make my face dazzle. I decorate the tree, the house and add some candles to make the house all warm and cozy. Smells like Christmas in here! The kind of music that inspires me is Christmas music it helps me get into the spirit of Christmas at times when I am feeling down. But I love hip hop music and on my itouch I have a variety list and it keeps me moving! It starts any party that is boring. To my hair I usually add ribbon and make it all curly and it looks amazing it tops off the outfit great too!

    I like wearing a sparkling gold scarf or sparkling red wrap with a black dress--understated but glittering is fun! By the way, that Butter London Dressing Table looks amazing--I would have so much fun preparing for a night out at that table! Thanks for the giveaway!!

    I have a super cute sparkle shirt that I wear during the holidays with a nice red shirt. I usually use some body sparkle too:)

    Sparkly body lotion! It doesn't sound like much, but adds a little fun and takes care of my dry skin.

    I know a lot of people wear black around this time of the year. What I do when I wear black or neutral colors, like creme, is wear a colored eyeliner (I use liquid). The colors of choice for me are teals and golds. It just gives your eyes some pop to them. On other days when I don't wear brighter eyeliner, I will use a sparkly/shimmery eyeshadow (lighter colors usually like a pearlescent) and dab it on the inside corners of my eyes to make them light up. I love this technique.

    To wear a sparkle/glitter heels that always will make a statement when wearing them with a dress or even with jean.

    To spruce up my holiday style I will add a light shimmer powder to any exposed limbs and add longer then I usually wear silver dangle earrings. For my face, I use a shimmer, not glitter, eye shadow to my lower lid and highlight with a light neutral shade.

    I love music. When I was growing up my parents listened to Motown music. The music that always make me good and sends shivers up my spine, would have to be Otis Redding. HIs voice and music always gets me. I especially love "That's how strong my love is" and "Try a little tenderness" On the other side of the spectrum I also love Ryan Bingham. He has got a great country, folk, rock voice. So if anyone wants to listen to something different I recommend these two.
