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?
