Everyday Starlet is Engaged!

Everyday Starlet is Engaged - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

Hello Starlets!  If you haven’t seen on my social media and my YouTube channel, I’m engaged!  It is a very exciting time for me.  I finally found my leading man, and we’re planning our Hollywood ending… hopefully more comedy than drama. I’ve spent most of my life single, so at times I didn’t think marriage was in the cards for me, so I am very excited to share the experience with my Starlets.  Fear not, I won’t be making Everyday Starlet into an all wedding website.  I’ll be mixing wedding stuff in with regular content, but this is just such an amazing time for me, I couldn’t not share it with my favorite Starlets.  Here is my YouTube announcement…

I any of you have wedding advice for me, I’d love to hear it!

Happy 2016!  I’m sure many of you have New Years resolutions…. and I’m willing to bet most of them are about getting in shape.  Staying healthy and keeping active are always goals of mine, and any Everyday Starlet.  All the makeup, skin care, hair care, or any clothing won’t help the way you look on the outside if you don’t take care of yourself on the inside.  So for some inspiration, I wanted to share with you my most popular health posts.  There are plenty of tips in these posts to keep your resolutions on track for the rest of the year!

Here are my Top 5 Most Popular Health, Diet, & Fitness Posts of 2015…

5. How to Stay Healthy Through the Holidays: Health, Food, & Fitness Tips … the holidays may be over, but these tips can help you any time of the year!

4. How to Avoid Dairy to Get the Best Skin Of Your Life … I will admit, I indulge in dairy occasionally.  But I have seriously cut back my cheese habit and it makes a huge difference in my overall health.

3. My Fitness Journey + Fitness/Diet/Health Tips (or How I Lost 50 lbs) … this was also one of my most popular YouTube videos of 2015.

2. How to Get a Supermodel Body  …it’s not about looking like a Supermodel, it’s about looking like the best version of yourself!

1. Fitness for Fashion Bloggers …we’re in front of a camera more than most supermodels.  I’m very proud of this post, and I’m thrilled that this was one of my most popular!

What are your New Years Resolutions?  Are the health and fitness related?  What will you be doing to stay healthy in 2016?

Last week I shared with you my love of Pinterest and my most popular Pinterest boards.  Even though Pinterest will always have my heart, Instagram is a social media unlike any other.  I can’t believe I was once hesitant to jump on the Insta-bandwagon (hey, even Starlet can have questionable judgement from time to time).  Now that I am totally an Instagram addict, I thought I would share with you my most popular photos….

I have to admit, sometimes I get so caught up in makeup, fashion, and beauty that I just forget about everything else around me.  While Everyday Starlet is mainly a beauty and fashion blog, I like to throw in some Starlet lifestyle posts as well… after all being well-rounded is an important Starlet character trait.  Last week I shared my Most Popular Tablescapes of 2015, and next week I’ll be sharing my popular fitness and health posts.  So today I wanted to share my popular posts that focus on food, decor, events, and just generally fabulous things…

Here Are My Most Popular Lifestyle Posts of 2015…

I must confess, I spend a lot of time on social media…. probably more than is healthy.  With all the time I spend on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, I sometimes neglect what is possibly my most favorite social media of all (okay after YouTube)… that’s Pinterest.  When I first joined Pinterest, it was possibly the biggest time suck of my life.  But I did stop buying as many magazines so I figure the money I was saving out weighed the time I was wasting… it’s Starlet logic, just go with it.

Since I started blogging, I have focused much more on my Instagram presence, and promoting myself on Facebook and Twitter.  It seems as if my old friend Pinterest got left behind.  But we’re reconnecting and it seems like old times again! So I thought I would share with you my most active Pinterest boards of 2015…

Most Popular Tablescapes of 2015

Most Popular Tablescapes of 2015 - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

Continuing my series of the absolute best Starlet stuff of 2015 (you can see my most popular fashion looks here), I wanted to share my Most Popular Tablescapes of 2015.  I decorated a table for each major holiday last year.  Starting from this past Halloween I tried to make each table into a fashion designer themed look.  Some of my tables were actually some of my most viewed posts this year!  Sometimes a vision would come to me, and I would find everything I needed at Michaels and Jo Ann Fabric.  Other times it took a lot of brain power and many shopping trips to get everything to come together.  Either way, it’s all worth it!  So without further ado…

Here are my Most Popular Tablescapes of 2015….

5. DIY Rustic Glamour 4th of July Tablescape… I wanted to capture Summer Sophistication with the whimsy of catching fireflies (in the form of fairy lights) in a mason jar

4. Glamorous Pink and Gold Valentine’s Day Tablescape…. vintage romance was my goal with this table

3. Valentino Inspired Thanksgiving Tablescape… these pumpkins inspired the whole table!

2. Old Hollywood Glamour Oscars Tablescape…. this table made watching the Academy Awards at home even more glamorous!

1. Kate Spade Halloween Tablescape… This was my very first designer themed table, and it definitely got the best response here on Everyday Starlet and on social media!

Hello Starlets, The Holidays are quickly approaching and life is getting increasingly hectic.  I wanted to check in with you and give you a few Everyday Starlet updates!

First, I have BIG plans for ES that will be coming in the next year!  I’m very excited about them, but I can’t reveal too much too soon (a Starlet always keeps ’em guessing).  As a result of all of these exciting happenings, my posting schedule for ES, my YouTube channel, and my social media may be a little erratic or the next month or so.  Fear not!  This is only so I can focus on some of the new things I have planned for ES and…..

I have a few changes that will be happening soon in my personal life.  Don’t fret, they’re all good.  Be sure to subscribe to my Mailing List, and my YouTube channel, as well as my Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook so you don’t miss any of my Starlet life!

In the meantime, don’t miss my glamorous Christmas gift guide…..

Chanel Christmas in Paris Tablescape

Chanel Christmas in Paris Tablescape - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

Continuing my tradition of fashion designer inspired Holiday Tablescapes (see my Kate Spade Halloween, and my Valentino Thanksgiving), I needed big inspiration for a big holiday.  After seeing this Chanel N°5 display at Macy’s I knew that the legendary brand was perfect for a legendary holiday like Christmas.

Here’s how I got the look for this Chanel Christmas in Paris Tablescape:

I wanted to focus on a vintage, Coco Chanel look.  I used a burlap table runner and a tweed looking ribbon to evoke the feeling of a classic, timeless Chanel suit.

I found the tabletop dress form at Wayfair and added some pearl strands and a black bow with ribbon from Jo Ann Fabrics.  For my Chanel perfume vase, I found a rectangular vase at Michael’s and made my own label.  Instead of N°5 I used N°12 to symbolize the 12 days of Christmas.

Finding red roses was harder than I thought this time of year, but after trying several stores, I found them at my local Jo Ann fabrics, and I bought all they had left.

I found clear plastic Christmas tree ornaments at Jo Ann Fabrics, and cut out gold glitter Cs to make a Chanel symbol.  I glued them on to be sure they stayed put.  The shape of these ornaments remind me of perfume bottles!

I filled tall vases with pearl Christmas balls from Michael’s, and scattered a few more over the table.  After all, it’s a Chanel table, you can’t have too many pearls.

The Eiffel Tower is actually a jewelry holder I stumbled upon at Michaels, and I had a coupon so I got it half price!  I added some fairy lights that I had from my Summer Nights tablescape.  Actually, my boyfriend, PET, came up with the idea of adding the lights.  Who says men can’t be useful when decorating.

I finished the look with some pine garland from last years Christmas table.

As much as this is a tribute to Christmas and Chanel, I also feel like this is a tribute to how beautiful, strong and resilient Paris is.  After all they’ve been through, they deserve some Holiday Cheer!

Have you started your Christmas decorating yet?

I recently joined Influenster, and if you’re active on social media you should definitely check it out.  They sent me a sample of Ponds Wet Cleansing Towelettes in the fresh scent.  I’ve already been a long-time user and lover of the evening soothe scent, and I love the fresh version just as much!

Christmas Gift Guide 2015

Christmas Gift Guide 2015 - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

I must confess, I get my Holiday shopping done early.  Maybe it’s my years working in retail, or my social anxiety, but I just can’t handle the holiday crowds.  Over the past few years I’ve started to do all my shopping online.  It’s quicker, easier, and you can do it in your pajamas (you can wear them in stores as well… but a Starlet never would).  I actually do a lot of my shopping through Ebates now.  If you haven’t tried it, you need to!  I was skeptical at first, but with my shopping habit, it really pays off.  If you’d like to sign up for Ebates (and you should), I would love to invite you to join.  

Note: Ebates is not sponsoring this post.  I get a bonus for referring you.  That bonus will go to making Everyday Starlet even better! I would never promote a product or service that I didn’t totally believe in.

Christmas Gift Guide 2015

To help you get some gift ideas for the Starlet in your life, or some present ideas you can add to your Christmas wish list, I have a Starlet Gift Guide.  Feel free to send this post to boyfriends, husbands, parents, friends, and/or independently wealthy relatives!

  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit– This is on my wish list (I may have already purchased it during the Sephora VIB sale and snuck it in my Mom’s gift hiding spot with my name on it, wink wink).  This is THE makeup gift this year.  Hourglass is pricy, but their Ambient Lighting Powders give an inner glow that is unmatched.
  • Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette– This has become my favorite eye shadow palette.  It makes a great gift for any makeup lover (see below for a bonus gift guide with more palette suggestions)
  • Starlet Lamp– Any Everyday Starlet will be ready for her closeup with this lamp.  It’s small, but gives off a lot of light.  It’s Old Hollywood Glam meets practical.  Note: Amazon has the best price for this lamp.
  • Christian Louboutin Lipstick– This may be the most expensive lipstick ever.  I haven’t tried it (yet), but the reviews have been great.  Think of this as a collector’s item for any beauty lover.
  • Your Beauty Mark by Dita Von Teese– Dita is one of my style icons.  She’s been talking about writing this book about DIY glamour for years.  I have be (im)patiently waiting for the release date… and it’s finally been announced!  The book will go on sale on Dec 1st.  That’s one week before my birthday, and I’ve made an agreement with my boyfriend.  I won’t buy this for myself if he agrees to give it to me as a birthday gift… I could never wait until Christmas for this one!
  • Mason Pearson Brush–  These brushes are expensive, but so worth it.  If you are buying a gift for a hair maven then this is the perfect choice!
  • Audrey at Home– For the Starlet who loves to cook, this book is all about Audrey Hepburn and her home life.  Including some of her favorite recipes.
  • Lush Relax– For the stressed out Starlet, you can’t go wrong with a gift from Lush.  This gift set includes my favorite Twilight bath bomb!
  • Dita Von Teese/Mac Lipstick Collaboration– This will be release mid-Dec, but it’s a great stocking stuffer idea for the Dita fan in your life!  It would make a great gift to go with her new book!
  • Tom Ford Fragrance–  Perfume is such a romantic gift.  I’ve been loving Tom Ford fragrances, especially the Noir and the Velvet Orchid (I tried the Black Orchid, but it just wasn’t for me).  They are pricey, but they make a great luxury gift.

Bonus

I mentioned a few makeup palettes above.  However, since they make such a great gift, I did a whole video reviewing my palette collection.   I have plenty of suggestions for which palettes make the best Christmas gift ideas and stocking stuffers!
