Merry Christmas! Even as you are opening your presents and eating your feast, the chances are you are already surreptitiously thinking about your New Year's Eve celebration and starting to obsess over the perfect outfit, accessories, and hair & make-up. If you are contemplating wearing a statement dress for your New Years party, then you should seriously consider wearing a sleek and chic hair style like a ponytail. There are various ways to wear a ponytail. My favorite hair inspiration, Kate Beckinsale, has been seen sporting a voluminous ponytail quite often. It is the perfect way to vamp up the typical ponytail. It has a very 1950s vintage vibe to it. And it doesn't matter how much hair you have because with the right teasing, it will look just right! Plus a perfect way to put a modern twist to the look is to add an elastic band hair cuffs! They add glam without overpowering the style. To see how to style this hairdo look below!

You can wear these headbands any way you wish but there is one way in particular that I love! I love to wear a headband in a chignon style!

We really are not joking when we say Amazon has everything and anything. Just yesterday when we were searching for edible glitter where did we find it – on Amazon, of course.
Today I am finally going to buy the 3D Slim LED HDTV my husband has been coveting and not surprisingly, Amazon has the best deal! My sister can buy herself her favorite DKNY pajamas to supplement the ones I bought her last year and she wears every single night! My children much prefer when Uncle Andy sends an Amazon gift card than when he decides everyone needs the latest and greatest pair of binoculars.
