Well, it seems to be that time of year again -- I am sitting in Downtown Los Angeles, where from my balcony I can hear the sounds of the city. Grand Park is not too far away, and they are already advertising New Year's Eve festivities. And at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, one of my perennial favorites, Post-Modern Jukebox will be playing.
The hubby and I have our own traditions. One includes pouring a glass of champagne and watching the top 10 viral videos, top 10 news stories, top 10 music videos... you get the idea. It is our own little year in review session.
Speaking of years in review, I can't believe it has been a year since I started this blog. I have enjoyed every minute of it, and learned so many things! Writing in and of itself is its own reward, but I am also grateful for each and every reader that has reached out to me here and on social media. :)
In case you are new (or might have missed them the first time around) here were the most popular blog posts from She Wore Stars in 2016. Hope you enjoy them a second time around.

Nowadays it's considered cool to be a fashion rebel, but it wasn't always this way. But my favorite actress of all time knew how to make her own way in Hollywood circles -- and she used her fingernails to do it.
This is still my favorite perfume. The scent is incredible.
Who doesn't want to emulate a little bit of Marilyn? It's fun!!! And what better theme for New Years than a Marilyn Monroe themed bash? Un-cork some champagne and get to it, darlings.

I look forward to another year of watching the silver screen, toasting with silver screen libations, exploring the ancient Hollywood bones of Los Angeles, and experimenting with the beauty and fashion secrets of Hollywood's greatest goddesses next year. I hope you will join me on the other side of 2017. See you in 2018!!!!
