The turning over of a New Year, with all its concomitant dreams, goals and layers of gratitude (“I’m still alive!” “I still have a shot!” “I made it through!”), is the most celebrated of renewals. Oh I’ve been known to celebrate the renewal of my skin cells after a proper exfoliation, but no one is going to toast to that (though some days I would!). Yes, the New Year bring us together as a global community to raise our glasses and our hopes for a better tomorrow. Maybe that means a new job, or a healthier body, or maybe it means more dresses and lipsticks. (I’m wearing Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Infrared here, in case you’re looking.) Whatever you hope for, the New Year offers the promise that it could be yours. So I’m sweeping into 2016 in a gorgeous dress (this one by Kevan Hall), in a gorgeous place, in the hopes that I will proceed as I have begun. May your New Year bring everything you need, and some of what you want, and if you haven’t asked or hoped for it, let me be the first to wish a little glamour into your life (however glamorous it may already be… there’s always room for more!). For Auld Lang Syne, and for our collective bright future… Happy New Year!
