GOLDEN GLOBE STYLE: METALLIC SPARKLE

Roll out the red carpet because awards season has arrived! There is something I love about the Golden Globes that I don’t feel for the Oscars. The Globes are an evening of glamour, but with less of the pomp and fluff, more fun, (seemingly) more enjoyment, and people usually say hilarious stuff as the champagne flows. It’s my kinda night!

Like the majority of viewers, I also love watching for the fashion. I particularly enjoy seeing what trends emerge. This year, Emma Stone took the trend of metallic sequins and made it truly sparkle. Not only did her look appear effortless, but I absolutely loved the whimsical touch of the sequin stars that cascaded down her gown – they shimmered with every step. So I’ve recreated the look with pieces that are fun, playful, and perfect for a night on the town with your ladies, or a hot date.

Did Emma Stone’s look make it to your list of favourites? Let me know in the comments!

OSCAR STYLE: ACCESSORIZE IT!

With all of the 2016 Oscars handed out, and another round of red carpet style wrapped up, it’s time to talk about our favourite looks. More specifically, the gorgeous accessories! After admiring the stars’ dresses, I love checking out their extravagant jewels (I’m an earrings and bold rings kinda gal). Your accessories are the perfect place to inject some personality to your ensemble, so I was thrilled to see the ladies rocking some very unique pieces and fun new ways to sparkle.

From Olivia Munn’s wrap-around bracelet, to Whoopi Goldberg’s octopus ring, and Brie Larson’s delicate jeweled hair clips, there was definitely a playful element to the accessories worn by these leading ladies. And I can’t forget to mention Charlize Theron’s eye-catching lariat bling that perfectly accented the deep v of her gorgeous, red dress. But, I think my favourite accessories of the night were Saoirse Ronan’s stunning, green dangling earrings. There’s something about rich, emerald jewelry that gets me every time!

LIEBSTER AWARD

I was pleasantly surprised to log into my blog earlier this week and discover that I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Rae of Pastel Carousel. Meaning “dearest” in German, the Liebster Awards are passed from blogger to blogger as a way to encourage support and connection within the blogging community. Rae was the first blogger to welcome me when I began this journey, and I will be forever grateful (it’s always nice to know someone is reading what you have to say). I hope you find the blogs I’ve nominated as much of a delight to read as I do.

The Rules

  • Thank and link the person who nominated you.
  • Include the Liebster Award sticker somewhere in your post
  • Nominate a handful of bloggers who you feel are worthy of this award and comment on one of their posts to let them know of their nomination. These bloggers must have less than 200 followers.
  • Answer the eleven questions created by the person who nominated you.
  • Share 11 questions for your nominees. They can be the same ones, or 11 new ones.
  • Be sure to copy these rules into your post.

1. How long have you been blogging?
Almost two weeks.

2. Do you schedule your blog posts?
Not yet. But as I start blogging more frequently, I plan to. I’d like to have regular features that my readers can look forward to every week.

3. Cotton candy or ice cream?
Ice cream – no question! Give me a scoop of mint chip or chocolate peanut butter, and I’m a happy gal!

4. What’s your favorite season and why?
Fall. It always has been and always will be. I love the watching the leaves change from green to fiery reds and oranges, having an excuse to wear a different scarf every day of the week, and of course, Halloween! And I can’t talk about fall without mentioning pumpkin spice EVERYTHING (yeah, yeah, I know what you’re thinking…but I can’t help myself).

5. What fictional character best represents your personality?
This was hard to choose, but I think I’ll have to go with Dottie Hinson. I admire her ability to lead a team, her sassiness, and the way she can kick ass in a dress.

6. Have you ever been to Disneyland/Disneyworld?
I used to travel with my family to Clearwater Beach, Florida, on the regular, so Disney World was a big part of my childhood. I last visited the park 3 years ago, and it was every bit as fun as an adult as it was when I was a kid. I’d love to visit Disneyland Paris, next. #dreamvacation

7. What’s your favorite app?
Aside from apps like Instagram and Twitter, which I use every day, I’d have to say Snapchat. I love the Discover channels like Food Network, Tastemade, Buzzfeed, Daily Mail, and CNN. I can catch up on the day’s news and learn how to bake something new, all within a span of ten minutes.

8. What’s your favorite color?
Pink – bubblegum, neon, pastel, I love it all!

9. Has it always been your favorite color?
Yep!

10. What was your favorite cartoon growing up?
Muppet Babies. But I have fond memories of watching Saturday morning cartoons with my dad and younger brother; X-Men, Spiderman, The Fantastic Four.

11. Would you rather own a unicorn who bites or a dragon who snores?
Unicorn! I already have a snoring fella and a snoring dog to keep me up, uh, I mean, company at night.
