I love Emma Watson’s new hairstyle. I know she did it a while ago, but i just read that apparently she did it for a screen test to play Lisbeth Salander in the new remake of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. That would make me happy, because I just finished reading this. I liked it…murder, mystery, etc….I’m now reading the second one (The Girl Who Played with Fire.) Anyway, I haven’t seen the first make of the movie yet, but I was planning on renting it soon. I’ll let you know how it is! But I love her hair, and I thought I would post some pictures. The last 3 are from her shoot for Allure right after she cut it. I think she’s adorable.
Chef Ludo Lefebvre’s French-Style Cheese Puffs
Makes three dozen
1 c. plus 1 tbsp. water
7 tbsp. butter
1¼ c. flour
4 large eggs
1¾ c. grated Gruyere
Pinch of salt
1. Preheat oven to 375°.
2. Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper.
3. Pour water into a large saucepan; add butter and salt. Turn up the heat. Once the butter has melted, turn down the heat and add the flour all at once, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat when the flour is amalgamated and the paste is smooth (about 5 minutes).
4. Continue to stir 3-5 minutes or until the paste is just warm (this process dries the dough). Do not overheat.
5. Put the dough ball in your KitchenAid mixer (if you’re lucky) or just roll up your sleeves to mix by hand. Add eggs one at the time, mixing on low until well incorporated before adding the next. After the last egg has been mixed in, add the cheese, and mix for about 30 seconds (the cheese will melt slightly).
6. Transfer the dough to a pastry bag and squeeze out small, round mounds onto the baking tray. (No pastry bag? A spoon will do.)
7. Bake 20-25 minutes (depending on their size) until they rise and are golden brown.
8. To impress your friends, serve them warm right out of the oven.
Just looking at these items makes me want to sigh…which I’m doing now. And makes me want to redecorate. Hopefully I have some funds accumulate into my bank account soon.

This is my 5 day countdown to Gossip Girl starting again. Yeah I’m obsessed, but I’m also really bored lately too (as if you couldn’t tell).
Today you get some of the girls of GG.
Just a fun little quick post. Apparently Blake Lively and Florence Welch hung out on New Years Eve in Vegas. I loved these pictures. Some of my favorite people again. I think they’re both gorgeous and talented. 🙂
Now I don’t want to offend anyone here, but would you wear these pants? I just don’t think I could wear that pattern on my bottom half. They remind me of bad hammer pants.
And guess how much they are…go ahead…guess….$490!
No way. Just my opinion.
Outfits of Golden Globes 2011
I just thought it would be fun to post about the Golden Globes because I love watching all the shows about outfits and etc. Plus I stalked Perez Hilton’s blog to look at all of them. But I do have some different opinions than him. There was a lot of blush and nude colored dresses which I love right now. Green was another big color, which happens to be my favorite color! I also love how many sparkles and glitter this was this year! My fav! Anyway, here are some of the outfits from the night. Let me know what you think!
These first few are just some that I liked. My most favorite will come later.
Mila Kunis: Not my favorite dress ever, but I thought it was pretty on her, and I really liked the color on her.
Catherine Zeta Jones: Green again. I thought it was really pretty.
Angelina: I love the color on her. I’m not sure I love the shoulders, but overall I think it looks really good. (and I’m still Jen biased)
Anne Hathaway: I love this dress except for the shoulder pad thing going on, so that’s why it didn’t make my favorites. But I actually think she looks really pretty and I don’t even like her that much.
Sandra Bullock: I love this dress. Her bangs are throwing my off a little, but she tried something new so hey I give her that.
Scarlett Johansson: to be honest I don’t like her. And I think she kinda almost is wearing the same dress as Sandra Bullock, BUT I really like it except for the arms. I think maybe they shouldn’t have been so loose. I don’t know…thoughts?
Nicole Kidman: almost a little boring, but I sort of liked the simplicity.
Natalie Portman: little prego girl…so I think this dress is cute because of that. Otherwise it might be a little weird.
Leighton Meester: ahhh my love. I liked it. Almost victorian or something, with a little leg. I love the nude lace.
Megan Fox: Sort of boring for her I think, but I thought it was pretty.
Lea Michele: I’m not a fan of pink, but I think it was cute for her. My other two Glee girls made my favorites! So good night all around for the Glee stars!
Julianne Hough: I thought this was interesting, but it looked good on her and she looked really pretty. She put everything together well.
What were they thinking?!?
Some of these outfits I just don’t quite understand. Of course you see weird things at every awards show, but some of these people usually have amazing dresses and I’m just really disappointed. Then there are just the terrible ones.
Julianne Moore: This one isn’t the worst, but I feel like she just came back from India or something. Plus with all the green going on this year, she would have looked so good in green.
Jennifer Love : The dress would be pretty if she was getting married. Plus I feel like her hair looks so messy. At least put it up in a pretty, elegant updo or something if you’re going to wear a dress like that. .
Julia Styles: I just don’t like this. The actual dress isn’t that bad, but I think it makes her look bigger than she is and I don’t think she looks good all around. Right now I’m not so glad that people always tell me I look like her.
January Jones: could have been pretty maybe if she didn’t leave so much off the top.
O Heidi….I’m just disappointed…usually you’re one of my favorites 🙁 You couldn’t have found something better than that?
Christina : I can see what she was going for, but in my opinion it didn’t work. I usually love the lace over nude look. I actually like the dress, but it’s just not working on her. I also think her hair would have looked cute with curls or up maybe?
Gabby Sidible : WOW…purple leopard? I think compared to what she wore last year when she won for Precious, this is a complete failure. Ugh.
Helena Bonham Carter: By far the worst thing ever. That’s all I have to say. Her shoes don’t even match.
These are my very favorites from the night. LOVE THEM!
Emma Stone: K some people are saying she looks orange all over, which I guess she could have maybe skipped the spray tan, HOWEVER, I love the plain look. I don’t know why, but I’m just dying over it. I love love her hair blonde too. So simple.
Carrie Underwood: She always looks good I think. Classy. Plus I love glitter dresses!
Amber Riley: She looks so good. I think she picked a great dress. Glitter again! My first Glee girl in the favorites!
Dianna Agron: And my other Glee girl! Think she looks amazing too! Simple again, but really elegant. I love it.
Eva Longoria: Perez complained that she was in just another black dress. Umm I love that shape of it. I think she looks great! One of my favorites for sure.
Olivia Wilde: I can’t decide if this one or the next one is my favorite. Yeah she looks like maybe she’s going to prom or something, but she looks amazing, and I LOVE her dress. It’s gorgeous.
Sarah Hyland: Ok I didn’t even know who this was. I guess she’s on Modern Family and she’s only 20? I LOVE LOVE her dress. I would steal it from her any day. I think this is probably my favorite one of the night. I love that it’s still simple, but the top has the lace detail. I think her hair is cute and goes well with the dress. And of course, love the nude color!
