Here's her tip (which is fantastic for your holiday look, btw):
"Try a little bit of very fine iridescent glitter on your eyes, a tiny bit on your cheek bones and some on your arms to give a glowing impression. Also, dab a little line of glittery lip gloss on the fullest part of your lips to achieve that Marilyn 'pout'! :)"
Got agree with this one! A little bit of glitter goes a long way and adds an extra bit of "sparkle" to the evening!
Actually, her lovely style entry was the only one I received, so I am going to give her 20% for being so dedicated. :) If anyone else wants to enter, I will be drawing another coupon this upcoming weekend. If entries continue to be slim, your chances of winning are enormous. lol.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Mine was insanely crazy and wonderfully blessed. I have so much to be Thankful for, including...
- Spending the day with the best of friends, including my sweet Melissa (of the July 4th wedding) and her hubby Jordan. It was lovely to have some "kindred spirit" time and hear about the latest surprise (Ahh! I can't believe how excited I am over the prospect of being an "aunt"! ;).
- New opportunities and events (opening a business/starting the blog/being successful in my teaching/finishing a novel/making my first new costume in ages/planning next year's trip to England/just being inspired and motivated/too many blessings to count).
- The extension of our family and the wonderful new relationships that have been formed.
- Growing in the knowledge of God, experiencing His Love and Joy ten-fold, and learning to go "beyond myself".
...just to name a few. :)
With my Melissa...
The ball came off beautifully and was the best one to date. We danced for 5+ hours and had loads of fun. And now I am feeling it (you should see me try and make it up the staircase - anybody got a wheelchair? ;).
Unfortunately, I don't really have any great pics from our camera, but I am going to try and snag some shots from my friends. Here's a teaser - more will come soon! :)
Melanie, Anna and Lydia bring three separate time periods together (Regency, Medieval and Georgian :) ...__________________________________________________________
You may also notice that I have made a few small changes to the blog look - I lightened up the background and changed the banner to put us all in a nice "wintry" mood (the first few flakes of snow/sleet came down today! :D). Also, in the top right-hand sidebar you can click to enjoy a special playlist of holiday music which I created - such fun to listen to while browsing or just working about the house! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. :)
