Everything You Need For A Sparkling Christmas Party




One of the best things about the Christmas season is all the great parties and things going on, so whether you’re traveling somewhere to visit family and friends over the festive period or are going to be enjoying a more relaxing time closer to home, we hope that the below list will help you get organized with the basic essentials you need to take a well deserved break after a long year, and enjoy yourself.

Good Food:

If there’s ever a time to indulge yourself with a few treats, then Christmas is definitely it. Being organized to avoid the big rush of people doing their shopping close to Christmas will be a big timesaver, and help keep your spirits up so you’re not overly stressed. You can either order online at your favourite supermarket or you can just shop a few weeks before for the bulkier items that can be frozen, such as meat, or drinks that don’t spoil and can be stored.


If you know you’ll have people coming to visit, or you’re going to visit them, then being organized with your gifts will ensure that you can just give them out as you see people. Again, much of this can be done online and stored away, and depending on how organized you want to be, you can even buy things throughout the year to avoid the hectic Christmas rush.


Of course if you’re going to be attending parties over the Christmas period, you may want to treat yourself to some new party dresses, a nice pair of shoes, or even treating yourself to a manicure and sparkly new nail polish, plus some warmer jackets or cardigans that can be worn outside and still look dressy.


You certainly don’t have to go overboard with decorating for Christmas, so there’s no need to be out on ladders and plastering lights to your house to compete with the neighbours, but if you’re throwing some parties, or even just want to get yourself in the Christmas spirit, then a few candles, a small tree and some subtle lights will never go wrong.


Everyone loves a good Christmas movie, and whether adults or children, these will always be appreciated. It doesn’t matter if you’re watching them with your partner, a few girlfriends or even to entertain the children of those visiting you, a few festive movies will be a welcome addition to this year’s Christmas party.


No party, especially not a Christmas one, would be complete without some good music for guests to enjoy. You certainly don’t need to have a selection of Christmas carols playing for your parties, but creating a good selection playlist that everyone can enjoy will make your Christmas a hit with everyone.

Now that you know our top tips for making the most out of your Christmas parties, hopefully it will relieve some of the pressure and you can be better prepared and organized for your guests, or if you’re traveling, then you’ll have a better idea of how to travel light and focus on enjoying the festivities.

Manicure Monday – Wet n Wild WildShine in Sparked

Hello strangers! I’m back with a Manicure Monday!
This is Wet n Wild Wild Shine nail polish in Sparked. I received it in a goody bag from that awesome Wet n Wild Max Volume Plus launch event I attended last year.

Wet n Wild Wild Shine nail color
Sparked is is a fuchsia pink polish base with chunky silver glitter. The silver flashes to make the color seem lighter at some angles.

What I really like about this glittery polish is that I don’t have to be super precise when applying it. I was in a hurry this morning, and slapped on three coats. I dare say it looks pretty good for a rush job.

I haven’t worn polish in a while and my cuticles are in rough shape…but a few coats of Wet n Wild WildShine in Sparked and I felt like a lady again. When I get tip wear, I think I’ll just dab more polish on to make the color last a few more days. Since the polish is so chunky with glitter, there’s no worry about blending anything in. Perfect for gals in a rush! I like the slimline bottle, too.

What’s on your nails today? Do you like glitter polishes?
