Rosa Loves… A sparkly and glittery day.

Saturday was a busy day. I started my morning by packing for our holiday trip but I took a break for brunch. I met my friend Sara of High Fashion for Less and the lovely KAR of Blue Rooms White Houses at Scion in Dupont Circle. Over mimosas and a giant plate of huevos rancheros, KAR told us about her interior design adventures and we got to know her a bit more. We met briefly at the last Blogger Blitz DC a few months ago and I just love her fabulous blog. For brunch, I decided to wear my favorite lace top and instead of my signature statement necklace, I went with my sparkly heart ring.

After brunch, I ran some errands and when I got home, I packed some more. My husband and I went for a quick dinner that evening before heading over to a cocktail party organized by Ashley of Ashley in DC and her boyfriend Trevor. It was the first time I’ve been to her place and it is gorgeous. There was a champagne bar with all the ingredients needed for guests to make their favorite sparkling cocktails and that was kind of awesome. Also, aren’t those glittery bow drink toppers adorable? They certainly put a smile on my face every time I took a sip of my cocktail. We loved meeting some of Ashley’s friends and we even had the opportunity to chat with some of my favorite bloggers from the area (Hi Alissa and Morgan)!

As you can see, my Saturday was very sparkly and glittery and I was able to spend time with some old and new friends before going to visit the family for the holidays.

Rosa Loves… A day full of DIY projects and indoor activities.

On Saturday as I woke up, I found myself with no plans and with a husband out of town. So I decided it would be a great day to stay indoors and do a few activities including some DIY projects. I opened my balcony, got a couple of blankets out and I just chilled all day long. Here’s a few pictures of my day:

  • I drank mimosas and ate some cinnamon twist bites I got at the farmer’s market while reading the latest issues of my favorite magazines. 
  • Earlier in the week, I had gotten supplies to make friendship bracelets so when I finished reading my magazines, I made as many of these sparkly accessories as I could. If you want to learn how to make these awesome bracelets, go to one of my favorite sites Honestly… WTF for a detailed tutorial. 
  • Lola slept a lot and got a little frustrated when I wouldn’t let her have any of my bubbly. 
  • I wrote some birthday cards for friends and I sealed them with the DIY glitter tape that I made following instructions from a recent post in the Glitter Guide

So that was my Saturday. What kind of activities did you do this weekend? Share in the comments, I would love to hear about your weekend too.

Rosa Loves… Glittery dresses. 
And the Dress-Up Collection by Topshop delivers just that. Set to debut on April 14, the new line is full of flirty dresses featuring sequins, glitter and girly details. I wouldn’t mind adding a couple of these pieces to my closet, after all, a girl can never have too many sequins in her life.
