Blogmas Day 3: Little ways to feel glam this Christmas

In my fantasies, Christmas is spent in a grand Upper East Side apartment overlooking Central Park dressed in a sparkly dress and sipping champagne, whilst the snow falls softly outside.

I always did have an overactive imagination.

Sadly the reality is far, far different and I’m usually a frazzled mess by the time Christmas Day rolls around, thanks to the warm Australian climate.

What I am in my mind

The sad reality

Today’s post will show you some little ways to feel a bit glam this Christmas, no matter where you are in the world!

Get a professional blow dry. I always feel like a completely different person when I get my hair professionally styled. A little more Blair Warldorf, a little less hot mess, a bouncy blow wave always puts a spring in my step.

Give yourself a manicure. Nice nails always make you feel a bit more put together don’t they? Pick a traditional red to fit in with the festive season, or add some sparkles for a fun look.

Treat yourself to a new outfit. Christmas Day means one thing and one thing only; looking good in photos. Why not splurge on a new outfit for the day; at least your social media accounts will look cute.

Pull out that costume jewellery. Why not be like a Christmas tree and adorn yourself with sparkly baubles? Just don’t go overboard and be mistaken for a human tree; the last thing you want is people wrapping LED lights around you.

And finally, create a fun makeup look. Christmas really is the perfect time to pull out those shimmery, party shades you’ve been too scared to wear. Try a sparkly eye, shimmery highlighter and a glossy lipstick for a festive look.

What are your tricks to feeling glam over the festive season?
