New trend alert - Summer Shimmer

I went to Totem on the weekend, the fabulous new Cirque du Soleil show which just hit our shores. You don't need me to tell you it's fabulous. It is. It always is.
I was very taken with some of the performers strutting around in body glitter (male and female). That was huge in the '70's. What a big mistake that it went out of fashion! So I'm saying to you, let's bring it back in!
This summer, if you are out to a party, festival or club, slap on some glitter! What could be more festive? What's more uplifting?
We are constantly telling the kids about the magic properties of fairy dust, so lets heed our own advice and make our world a little more glitzy...
Who's with me? (Just be thankful I didn't decide we should all dress as South American Indians - cos it was 50/50 on that count, I was equally taken with the fluffy leg things. Just my whole big ass and lack of ripped mid-drift put me off).

If you do join me in the glitter campaign, let me know if it lifted your mood and dazzled up the night! I have a cocktail party, a 50th, in 2 weeks - and I'm already stocked up and ready to go! It will even go with my shoes!

Otherwise, if you see a sparkly old lady roaming the streets, come over and say hi!

I'm a little reluctant to link the clip, as I prefer the element of surprise, but for those who have never been, and had no intention of going, maybe this will lure you:

  3. I love Cirque du Soleil but A, not so much. We went to one up near Brisbane and I think that the next time one comes to town, I'm going, even if I have to go by myself !!!!
    Not so sure about the glitter - mainly because it gets into EVERYTHING and drives me nuts when I can't get it out - LOL
    Have the best day !

  5. Hand down all the Cirq shows I have seen in my lifetime have been the absolute best performances ever! My fave's have to be O and Ka - as for glitter - the more the better, there really is no other way xx

  6. I found this kids body spray with glitter the other day. I thought about getting it it for them for Christmas, but maybe I could get on board with the shimmer thing instead?

  7. I have to say.... I'm a BIG fan of glitter. Body glitter, not STUPID craft glitter. I'm in too. Shimmer me up!

  8. I remember glitter and shimmer - back in the late 70's! That, and KISS makeup, were our fave things to do when I was a teen/pre-teen! Thanks for the walk down memory lane ;-)

  9. Body Glitter was big when I was a preteen. In 1999 I covered my shoulders and parts of my face to celebrate the millennium. I even had 2000 on my cheeks stuck there with body glitter!

    As for Cirque I would love to go one day. It's definitely on my to do list.

    Yay for glitter, but only on the body, never in the craft room!!

  11. Lol! I am a huge fan of body glitter. I used to wear it all the time in the late 90s. We definitely need to bring it back. Good thinking Lydia!!

  18. Cirque du soleil always leaves me feeling like a child. I'm so with you on the glitter x

  19. Ha ha I love what you're saying but glitter is banned in our household. But maybe if it was in makeup then I could agree to it! x

  20. You can never have too much glitter... as long as it is not in the hands of kids. I am allergic to kids and glitter xx

  21. Love it! I used to regularly buy a glitter soap from the body shop as a teenager. I'd use it when I went out on the town. It left your body are beautifully sparkly. They still sell it, too.

    Thanks for linking up to #thankfulthursday
