All Dressed Up ~ On The Brink Of A New Year

Over the years, I have vastly become one of those people who puts much more emphasis on the importance of New Years as opposed to Christmas. As I've grown older (and surely much, much wiser) I have noted that Christmas has become nothing but a commercial-driven madness of a holiday, whereas New Years remains unyielding with it`s importance and significance. It`s a time to reflect on the past, all you have overcome and built in your life. All you have done, strived for and succeded. And it`s a time to reflect upon the future ~ your plans, wants, desires, resolutions...

It's also a time to party like a f*cking rockstar.

With all the looking back and reflecting, you want to take the time to celebrate the year past and the year to come - to celebrate LIFE. Most people take to dressing up and drinking with their loved ones, and as ever I was a slave to this brilliant tradition this year (as I never pass up an oppurtunity to dress up - ever).

Me and my Beloved, NYE.

I wore a lovely, long black dress detailed with sequins around the bust for the occasion, as well as my red rose-crown (made by moi!) which I cannot get enough of. Any chance to sport this floral crown I have, I seize! I got stopped several times in the hotel we stayed at by women who told me I looked like a Princess - truly made my evening.

I wish you all the best for 2012 ~ Cheers to Health, Happiness, Love, Beauty and Fashion!
