Oscar Dresses= Nude + Sparkle

11 Mar

Okay so I realize my commentary on Oscar dresses is a bit delayed. But, in my defense, I’m just now starting to truly appreciate some of the trends I saw walk down the red carpet. I should preface this by saying: I LOVE THE OSCARS. As a double major in theatre performance and film and television business, you can probably understand why my passion for the Academy Awards might border on full-on obsession. I had my ballot printed, my bingo marker, my popcorn, and my movie candy in hand and at the ready. While there’s not enough time in the day for me to ramble on about my opinions on who won and lost, (actually you should probably be thankful that unlike my boyfriend and roommates you all have been spared that diatribe…) I feel like this would definitely be an appropriate venue to discuss another favorite element of this awards show: The dresses.

By far my favorite trend I noticed were the light metallics and delicate nudes. Here are some photos I will definitely be using for inspiration this spring and summer. I love how simple yet glamorous this combo is!

Just a Little Check-In

19 Jan

Blip. Blip. Blip. Blip. Yes the airwaves are still alive out here! Forgive the empty static but with the 4 day weekend from school coupled with the beginning of classes, I’ve been pretty busy. Now that we are 3 weeks into the new year, I think it’s about time for the first check-in to see how I’m doing with the resolutions, and also let you know what’s going on in my life with the new semester in full swing!

Goal 1. I have not made it to the Rec Center yet. In fact, today I had some minor (albeit kind of painful) dental surgery, so that’s going to put me off of physical activity for the next few days. However, that event has put my #2 well on track…

Goal 2. I have been eating lots of desserts! A half gallon of Blue Bell homemade vanilla, the chocolate motherload cake from Claim Jumper, blended root beer floats from Sonic, cookie dough straight out of the plastic tub, birthday cake at the sorority house…. If it’s sugary and in front of me, I’m eating it. (Coincidentally these are all soft foods which + dental surgery = perfection.)

Goal 3. Over the long weekend I did experiment with some cooking! I made some sort of portobello rissoto. It was… passable. No one else wanted to try it but I ate a whole bowl full. My boyfriend and I also made dinner together, he contributed seared ahi tuna (my favorite, and his house has a very nice grill in the backyard) and I contributed roasted herbed red potatoes with onions and fresh fruit for dessert. I wasn’t happy with the potatoes but my boyfriend liked them or at least pretended to. Continue reading
