I have a penchant for neutrals but have been known to get distracted by shiny objects on occasion. I do treat metallics as part of my 'neutral' palette because to me they are just shinier versions of their flat color cousins. I have never been one for glitter though but something has snapped in me and made me want to glitz it up this season.  I saw this ribbon which is not really glitter but a weave that mimics glitter, as I am already beyond obsessed with ribbon and now have a soft spot for the shiny stuff  I had to order myself some.  I don't consider myself much of a collector, I like things in my life that have purpose it feels more justified when I buy something that I want and don't need if I can actually use it--like shoes, handbags or say ribbon.  There's a slew of things you could make with this sparkly ribbon: a necklace, belt, headband, brooch, ornament, etc. that I feel like my purchase was more than worth it.

This is so lovely. The perfect amount of bling to jazz up gifts.

Not sure if you have plans on New Years Day, but at 3pm I am hosting a SoCal Bloggers Meetup. If you're free and interested, email me at and I can give you more deets. I'd love to see you there!

Hmmm? Miss J. I wonder why it looks familiar? I am happy to hear that your mailperson hasn't absconded with another delivery, lol. Kayla, you are going to be so happy with your purchase, I promise. Mel, thank you, it was a hot glue gun ditty, I was going to do a tutorial and then it became a craft that went awry, sigh. Dionne, if we are around I would LOVE to come meet you and give you a giant bear hug.
