Glitz and Glamor

The Golden Globes this year was filled with many hits and its fair share of misses. I felt that many of the actress' played it safe, making the red carpet pretty boring to watch this year. However a few actresses took a chance with color or sparkle that made them stand out in the sea of beige and white.

My favorite picks of the evening are:

These four ladies shined through with their choice of dresses so show stopping they didn't need sparkly accessories to make a statement. January Jones and Angelina Jolie looked absolutely stunning in Versace gowns. The cut of January Jone's looked fabulous and color on her pail skin was perfect. Angelina Jolie's was modest yet subtly sexy. Olivia Wilde wore my favorite dress of the night. As you know, I have a love affair with Marchesa gowns. She looks wonderful with all the sparkle and the studded Louboutins she wore were fabulous. Amber Riley was the only memeber of the Glee cast to impress me. Girl knows how to work her curves. Her Oliver Tolentino gown, stole the show with its sparkle.

Some of my least favorite dresses of the night:

While Leighton Meester looked beautiful in her Burberry Prorsum gown it just didn't seem to fit in with the occasion. It was just a little too stuffy for my taste, however rumor has it her Country Strong co-star, Garret Hedlund, liked it enough to get awfully cozy with her. He is a hottie, heck I'd wear the ugly dress for him. Everyone has been raving about how great Christina Hendrix looked in her Romona Keveza gown. Honestly, I couldn't disagree more, I think the ruffle takes away from her amazing curves and the fire engine red color does nothing for her gorgeous skin tone and hair. I don't think I need to mention again how bland Christina Aguilera's look has gotten lately. Honestly this dress does nothing but make her look old and washed out. Her hair is a disaster and the nude-lace combo doesn't do her curves justice. Compared to how beautiful she looked last year, you can tell her personal life has put a damper on things. Hopefully she gets it together soon. Lastly, Emma Stone, who I think always looks gorgeous just failed to impress with her minimalist look. The Calvin Klein dress was just too simple, and the absence of a statement shoe or jewelry piece just made the overall look boring.

What were your favorite picks from the Golden Globes?

Monday Model Muse- Victoria's Secret Models

Everyone knows the lovely Victoria's Secret models. They have gorgeous curves and walk down the lavishly decorated Victoria's Secret Runway every year sporting giant wings. Up until 2010 the models have mostly stuck to VS catalogs and runways, however this year the other side of the fashion world has taken notice. Two girls specifically have made their presence known on the runway and in editorials, Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes.

This is me

Just a few photos of this past week. I'm in love with my new camera and jump at the chance to take pictures. This is the first time I've ever posted pictures of myself on here. Its a little nerve racking, but you all share photos and aren't shy so I figured it was my turn. Keep in mind I was in game apparel, with all the beer spillage and food dropping going on, nice clothes are not really an option.

I know some of you are from LA, so don't hate me, but I'm a die hard Celtics fan. I'm in love with Rondo and  Big Baby and I scream at the TV like a man during games, usually while wearing a dress and cardigan. I'm kind of an oxymoron. I like lace and pearls but I also like old school hip hop and sports. I'm trying to decide if I want to go into fashion or sports PR. My favorite food is mashed potatoes and I don't eat meat. I love bright colors but my wardrobe consists of black and grey basics. I'm messy, but I know exactly where everything is. I want to travel and move to cities around the world, but I always know I'll come back home to Boston.

And there you have it, me in a nutshell. Nice to finally meet you.

Spring Fever

Is it Spring yet?
I've ice skated, had hot cocoa, built a snow man and in general thoroughly enjoyed the snow. Now I want warm weather and the leaves on the trees back, please. Winter should only last for the month of December and then move on, so I can wear all the beautiful upcoming spring trends. Here are some things I want to add to my wardrobe this spring.

Alexa Bag in Watermelon- Mulberry

Ducks in a Row Braclet- Modcloth
Reminds me so much of home and the Make Way for Ducklings statues at the garden.

Nars Highlighting/Bronzing duo in Orgasm/Laguna

Classic Knit Dress- Forever21

I really want to incorporate more patterns into my wardrobe as well next season. I tend to shy away from patterns because I think they make me look thicker, but honestly I'm in love with some of the new floral prints.

What are some trends you want for your spring wardrobe?

Happy New Years!

Since you're all from different times zones I have no idea when midnight is there. Regardless. Happy New Years! Right now its the day time here and I just spent the last hour contemplating my New Years Resolutions. I don't want to put anything ridiculous, like loose weight( though I would love to), because those never get fulfilled. I want meaningful ones, that I will be motivated to complete. So without further ado:

1.) Save Money- This is probably the most important. I want to study abroad in London next spring, but as you all know the conversion rate between US dollars and there is ridiculous. Not to mention that I want to travel while I'm there.

2.) Spend more time with my family and friends- This one is typical, however I'm the type of person that gets to caught up in my work projects and I forget the amazing people I have in my life. I want to take time out in 2011 to be with them and show each and every one of them I appreciate them, even if its just something small.

3.) Apply myself more- I know what I want to do with my life and I love the things I am learning, but I need to get out there and learn more. Maybe I will read some books or follow a blog on PR. Just something to keep me more involved and knowledgeable in the business. Hopefully want to land an internship this year as well.

4.) Blog more- I've really enjoyed this past month interacting and getting to know all of you. Its been great sharing my style and life and getting to learn all about yours. Its something I really want to continue and grow in 2011.
