New Year’s Eve is around the corner. Every year my sister throws an amazing New Year’s Eve bash where sequins are highly recommended. I wore this look last year; not sure yet what sparkly confection from the back of the closet I’ll pull out this year but I’ll be sure to share the outfit on Instagram. So I go whole hog with the glitz, but even for previous years where I counted down to the New Year on my couch in slippers I loved adding some sparkle to my look.
Thousands are expected to come to Washington DC on January 21st to march on the first day of incoming President Donald Trump’s administration.

As a co-leader of my daughter’s Girl Scout Daisy troop, we wanted to find a way for them to actively participate in charities and volunteer activities. At age 5 and 6 and only having 60 minutes for a meeting, this proved more difficult than you may think. We were excited to learn about Operation Gratitude and it has now become a tradition every Memorial Day weekend to have the Scouts make cards for those serving our country overseas.
