Post image for thursday poll – edition 75

hey everyone! you ready for the last thursday poll of the year?? last week i asked about your favorite winter whites, and the results were very close but the rows of ruffles dress just beat out the we the free little white tee with 34% of the vote.

i’ve been talking a lot about hair accessories this week, and how great they are to dress up a new year’s eve outfit. well we have some really great ones right now so i thought i’d ask which one you all like best…

the feather and gem headband:

the flower cluster sequin applique headband:

the gypsy sparkle bow headband:

i can’t believe tomorrow is new year’s eve!  this year went by outrageously fast…i haven’t even had a second to really think about new year’s, let alone what i’m wearing, but luckily i’ve found some really great DIY ideas that i’m dying to try…

accessories are a great way to dress up a simple outfit on new year’s, so here are a couple of things you can do that will stand out, and probably start some conversations as well!

bleachblack had this brilliant idea involving fool’s gold (remember fool’s gold?) that would be a sweet new years eve accessory…all you need is an old cuff or ring, some pieces of pyrite (fool’s gold) and embellishing glue.  check out the tutorial here.

and i got to thinking, if gold isn’t your thing, this would work with any kind of crystal or gemstones that you can by at a hobby or crafts store…

hair accessories are big right now too…we have quite a few awesome ones on our website right now…but i also love these “wild” hair pieces i saw on design sponge that you can make yourself:

hair

these are made with items you can find in your garden or a store, or leftover holiday decorations- the top one is a peacock feather, poinsettia leaves and a sprig of evergreen wrapped in floral tape- i love it!  check out their full tutorial here.

finally, if you’re looking for a great holiday makeup look, don’t forget about our how-to video… watch it here!

My friend and i made pieces similar to this for Halloween and they were a hit!

I've been looking all over for this! Thanks.

Post image for what are you doing new year’s…

with new year’s eve just a couple days away, i decided to ask what some of our home office team members are doing to celebrate…if you’re still undecided about what’ you’re doing, maybe this will spark some ideas!

i’m taking my son to “new year’s eve with the kids” at north bowl in philly!  it’s a family event where kids can bowl and jam out to some live music, along with other activities.  it starts at 5 and ends at 8pm with a new year’s toast for the adults!

i will be ringing in the new year at the loews hotel downtown in philly!

bob baer

i’m going to see the radiators from new orleans at my club in ardmore…its called the palombaro club and was originally an italian club to help immigrants get settled here…it’s almost 100 years old. today it is more of a social club but we do lots of charity work.  last year our big project was raising money for the variety club freedom playground being built this spring.

i’m going to boston! a bunch of us will be there to celebrate on new year’s eve, and then we’re going to the winter classic hockey game at fenway park on new year’s day!

lightsrebecca

i am going to see my favorite band, the disco biscuits, at the nokia theatre in times square! i have been seeing them on new years for 9 years, it’s become a tradition that i share with many friends around the country.  my boyfriend is the lighting designer and he’s amazing,  so it makes it even more special for me- i can’t wait!

DSC_0453

i’m thinking about checking out this warehouse/factory party in brooklyn that looks pretty interesting…www.newlostcity.com.

pig

in germany, where i grew up, the tradition is to eat a marzipan pig with a four leaf clover for new years, for good luck -  so that is “something” i will be doing!

so, readers, what are your plans for new year’s eve?

Chloe C -Dec 30, 2009, 9:04PM
oooh - so who is that, coming up to see the outdoor hockey game?!
piper -Dec 30, 2009, 1:34AM
i'll be playing with sparklers and drinking chai while my male friends set off fireworks in my neighbors' yards.. its a tradition.

bottle it up

Post image for bottle it up

i am not a huge wine drinker but i would try these in a second! they are called “wines that rock,” a new line of wines by the mendocino wine company, that are based on iconic music. winemaker mark beaman took the words right out of my mouth: “i can’t believe that this is my job. i get to taste wine, listen to music, and think about how to put it all together in a bottle of wine that truly captures the essence of an album.”

i love the descriptions for each bottle of wine:
“to capture the intense, brooding character of the dark side of the moon he turned to a classic wine variety, cabernet sauvignon. a varietal with a deep, complex character that takes a relaxed environment to fully appreciate, cabernet sauvignon reflects the hauntingly dense, timeless character of pink floyd’s masterpiece album.”

“the music of woodstock celebrates community, individual expression, and breaking with the past. inspired by this message, winemaker mark beaman created a ‘naked’ style chardonnay. unlike other regions which grow more muted flavored chardonnays (which are then dressed up with oak and malolactic fermentation), woodstock chardonnay is an expression of pure fruit character and the land it was grown on…and as mark likes to say, “sunshine in a bottle.”

“to capture the essence of forty licks, the 40 tracks that cover the rolling stones’ career, winemaker mark beaman chose to work with merlot. this varietal captures the comfort of turning to a solid classic that stands the test of time. much like the band itself, mendocino county winemaking stays true to its roots with a consistent and confident character not caught up in fads or trends.”

for more info check out their website.

WOW! what an AMAZING gift! I want them all and will definitely be keeping the bottles. That guy does have an amazing job. Thanks Julia!!
