When In Doubt Just Add Glitter

You are probably reading the title of today’s blog and thinking – “What the heck is she talking about?  Just add glitter?”   Well for anyone who has ever done an arts and crafts project in life you know that when your craft isn’t turning out exactly the way you hoped you simply add a little glitter and the sparkle of the glitter will distract people from noticing the flaws….it’s like magic!

I have often been teased for my love of all things that sparkle…but I take no shame in my love of sparkle!  There is something amazing about the way the light dances off sparkly things – sparkle makes everything more beautiful to look at.  And so I often add sparkle to my vehicles by having Swarovski crystals placed on the elements of my car, and I have sparkle added to my desk accessories…cause let’s be honest…stapling papers is a whole lot more fun when you do it with a pink diamond encrusted stapler, right!?!  RIGHT!!!!

Like I said, that sparkle can make even the most mundane item seem beautiful.  That is why I am so excited to have come across bath towel bars and toilet paper holders that are covered in crystals to buy for my new home!  No matter what the item you are using is, just keep in mind that glitter is always an option!  So never hold back on surrounding yourself with sparkles.

The bottom line is this  –  Life won’t sparkle unless you do!  That is why everyone needs to have a little glitter in their day.  Whether you cover things in glitter, or crystals, or other sparkly things, the important part is to make sure that you have things in your life that add a dose of SPARKLE.  Then let that serve as a reminder that you need to SPARKLE TO!

“It’s not my fault that when I was a baby I was dropped in a box of glitter and I’ve been shinin’ ever since.”

Today is a day to sparkle!  So get out that glitter and go crazy! And never forget the sparkle a good smile will add to your face 🙂

    Can I simply say what a relief to discover somebody that
    truly knows what they’re talking about on the internet. You actually
    know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people should read this and understand this side of
    your story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular since you certainly possess the gift.
