So, I came across this article the other day…and I could not believe it…well ok I can because one of my “facts” about myself on that instgram thing going around is about how much nail polish I own…but take a look. I was a little shocked.
Real Talk: Women Spend $768 Million A Year On Nail Polish.
The Screen Actor’s Guild Awards were this Sunday and I don’t know that I was completely blown away with any dresses or completely devasted by any. There were a lot of really good dresses and a few “eh” ones, but not a ton that will stand out in my mind for years to come. I did like a lot more dresses than I hated again at least. Myabe I’m just becoming soft in my old age 😛 I’m just looking forward to the Grammy’s and the Oscars! Yay! I love awards season.
So here we go…Please let me know your opinions!
Nicole Kidman: I actually really liked this, but I had so many in my best dressed already I just put her at the top of my list. The detail on this dress is gorgeous and color is great on her.
Jennifer Garner: I don’t feel like this is the best fit ever and I don’t love her hair that much, but the dress is very fun and she looks like a trophy. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
January Jones: At first I really liked this dress. Now I don’t think I love it. I think if the collar wasn’t so high it would be better. It’s not awful though. At least the fit is great. I do NOT like her hair though.
Morena Barracin: From different angles this dress looks totally different. I think it would be perfect if it didn’t have those two weird mesh slits that go so high up the thighs. The one in the middle is ok.
Julianna Margulies: I actually love this dress. The fit is great, especially since she is in her forties. I LOVE that she did something fun with her shoes and hair. She has looked really pretty lately I think.
Jayma Mays: I like the bottom, but not the top. It makes her look kinda frumpy. In the light this dress looked goregous though.
Jenna Fischer: I don’t love the color of the sequins, but I think the fit of this dress is great. She looks really elegant. I wish she had done something a little bit more fun with her hair.
Michelle Dockery: I think this is a little bit too long and it’s a tiny bit boring, because I LOVED her dress at the Golden Globes, but it’s not horrible in any way. It looks like she was trying to be a tiny bit Shades of Grey or something. I don’t know.
Katrina Bowden: This dress is a little bit funky, but kind of angelic. I’m not sure how that goes together, but it works. She looks fabulous. And it’s a different enough color that I wouldn’t have put it in my bridal section from the Golden Globes 🙂
Tina Fey: She looks so good here. I absolutely love her hair and makeup. I think she looks better and better with age. Such a flattering dress and the belt totally works too. Love her.
Sofia Vergara: I actually don’t love this. I don’t like that it has one shoulder, but then the other side has the hanging arm…it is a different shape than normal I guess? She always looks beautiful though.
Helen Hunt: I think she kind of looks like a trophy too, but I’m ok with it. I think she’s another person who is starting to look better with age, because she definitely wasn’t for a while. She looks really happy and I think that’s the best part about this. But she’s rocking the dress and that’s great!
Naya Rivera: I have been going back and forth with this dress. On one hand I think it’s just fine, but then again it’s just fine. She’s so young, why isn’t she wearing something fun! A bright color, or something shorter, or something sparkly! Just something else. I don’t know. It’s not bad. Just nothing special. Her hair and face are perfect though.
Amanda Seyfried: This fits her so well. I love love the bottom. This was another one that I couldn’t decide if I should put on my best dressed. The only reason I didn’t was because I didn’t love the necklace.
Kerry Washington: She alawys picks such interesting dresses and I like this, but I just have been loving her choices for her press tour for her new movie so much, that I didn’t love this AS much. (I’ll post those soon!
Rose Byrne: I don’t like this dress or this hair. I usually love her. I’m sad. The Easter Bunny threw up on her. Wth? That’s all.
Anne Hathaway: Honestly I really don’t like this. I like the top, but I hated the bottom. I didn’t like the tulle and I didn’t like how it didn’t go all the way around. It was really short in the front and then just open. Just not my fav.
Julianne Moore: I hate this. Maybe it would be ok on a younger person, but everything looks saggy. I don’t think I need to say anything else.
Claire Danes: I think she kind of looks like a vampire here…compared to what she wore at the Golden Globes I don’t like this at all. I felt like there was just so much fabric and I thought it was kind of boring.
Lea Michele: Ok, I know that she doesn’t look bad, but I think it kind of looks big on her. There is a lot of fabric going on there. It’s just boring. I liked a lot of the dresses at this show again, so I had to pick something. Plus it looks way better on the model. (And why is the bottom of her hair such a different color?)
Jennifer Lawrence: A lot of people thought this was boring, but I love this. It fits her perfectly and I love the simplicity of it. She looks stunning. I absolutely love the lips and her hair.
Jessica Chastain: I love this for the simplicity also. She looks like a true movie star. She definitely caught your eye. Love it.
Naomi Watts: I think she looks like an angel. Yes that was cheesy. But she looks so beautiful. I am in love with this dress. The whole look is effortless.
Marion Cotillard: This has got to be the cutest thing ever. Again it is so simple, but I’m in love with it. The skirt part of it is to die for. I think it totally flatters her.
Julie Bowen: This is so different! She always looks so great! I absolutely love the sleeves and who wears a leather gown? It’s so modern, I love it! She looks beautiful. Nina Dobrev: No one really talked about Nina, but I think this is the most beautiful color on her. Again very simple, but so pretty. It fit and flattered her so well. I just loved it.
We had another huge snowstorm last night and all day today. Blah. I’m so over the snow 🙁 You don’t know how sad I get when I wake up to all white. You’d think it would be exciting seeing as I’m from somewhere that never got it when I was growing up. It took me 50 minutes to get to work and normally it takes less than 15. The roads were so bad all day. We literally sat and watched two cars come down the road and smash into a parked car on the side of the road outside of the office windows.
Well, sorry for the rant. Here’s just a little picture of some snow that makes it look a little bit pretty.
Apparently snow gives me the right to dress like a lumberjack. Since I was too lazy to actually take pictures or go outside in the snow (and cold) here are some awkward “selfies” for you. I’ll do better next time. I promise.
Top – Forever 21 (old); Jeans – Forever 21; Beanie – (similar here); Boots – Sorels; Watch – Timex; Bracelets – BP Nordstrom, Forever 21; Rings – Disney Couture, Michael Kors.
I seriously love The Beauty Department’s Nail Posts. So I’m re-posting another one of theirs. Click HERE, to go to their link, but it’s all copied below for your viewing pleasure! I tried to do this myself last year basically, by painting the heart myself and it was not as cute as this. This is way smarter! Can’t wait to try it!
It’s almost Valentine’s day!! Whether you’re celebrating or not, a heart mani always looks simple + sweet. After trying to get a perfect heart a million different ways, I finally figured out the best way to do it. Washi tape! You can order it online, find it at a stationery store, or I’ve even seen it at Target in the stationery section. Washi tape is much less sticky than regular tape so you don’t have to worry about it adhering and pulling off your base color so much. Okay, here’s how we got the perfect heart!
I love this new song by Taylor Swift. I always love her lyrics. I’m not sure how she is so young, but is able to write down exactly how so many girls actually feel about what goes on in their life. And as embarrassing as that sounds coming from someone in their late twenties, if you don’t think it’s true then you are probably not a normal girl. (no offense!) I’m sorry, I love Taylor Swift and as many 12 year old girls are screaming at her concerts, you can probably ask just as many 20 or 30 year olds and they’ll tell you they remember feeling exactly like one of her songs at some point in her life. I do love her songs, but I really love her lyrics more. They are just very relatable.
I don’t know why, but I have just really been liking this song right now. I’m pretty sure most of us all know how that feeling when someone physically does not show up for something important. I think it hurts just as much if not more when maybe they don’t emotionally show up either. I’m not sure if she only meant to write this for the physical part or if I’m stretching the meaning because I want it to mean both, but that’s why I like music. It can mean whatever you want it to. It can be there for whatever you want it to be there for. I tend to get pretty emotionally connected to music, but I guess that’s usually the point of why it’s made right?
I am loving ID bracelets right now. They can be petite and pretty or bold and bada**. Just the perfect touch you need to whatever look you are going for. Here are ten different styles of ID bracelets. What is your favorite look?
