month of sparkle
WHAT IS IT
Every December my girlfriends and I do the #monthofsparkle… and by do I mean DO IT UP! We were sparkle every single day for the month. One of my friends introduced it to me and I joined her one not so fabulous year. I was down and out on myself and thought there was no way I could wear something shiny every day, I just don’t have that much shiny stuff. WELL I was totally wrong and that first year every day I put on some shimmer, shine, glitter or glimmer and soon my mood started to change. First year it was majority accessories with some clothing items I purchased, but I did it. Everyone at work and pretty much everywhere I went commented on my holiday spirit which I explained. Next thing I knew I had ladies I worked with and more friends joining in.
Second year I was in all the way and excited to plan for it. Hardest part is finding things throughout the year so right around holiday season is when I get most of my new sparkle additions.
WHY I DO IT
This year 2018 is probably my 4th year doing this and I really want to spread the joy and have other women join in the fun. When I had an emotionally tough time, my friend Denise gave me this to share with her and it bonded us over our love for fashion and gave me a way out of my funk. It is pretty tough not being happy when you are glittering every days and so I found my way out of my rut, PERMANENTLY.
Being into fashion it is fun shopping for new items, sharing finds with my friends, and bonding over our love for clothes. Everyone participates in their own level of sparkle, with us OG’s committing to SUPER NOVA levels 😉
HOW YOU CAN JOIN
Wear something that has sparkle each day in December and post is with #monthofsparkle and tag me @sparklebys
My hope is to have other women feel as fabulous as I do and share there passion for shopping, style, joy, happiness and positivity. Seeing how other women style their looks is fun and you will see when you put on sparkle everyone around you will notice and smile. It is tough to be shiny and sad, so let’s Be Awesome and Sparkle!
