Nail Polish Heaven

Okay. Y’all. I’ve seriously found the best website ever if you’re obsessed with nail polish and designs. Whoever runs Pshiiit¬†is a genious. Like hands down. She posts beautiful photos all the time of her crazy amazing designs! The website is in French, which makes it that much cooler…and harder to read so Google is great for helping with the translation ūüôā

I have a giant blog crush now. *adding to bloglovin*

Black Toe Pumps

It always seems like whenever I go shopping I manage to pick out the most expensive items in the store. It doesn’t matter if it’s way up front (which, as you know, is where stores normally keep their most appealing and pricey items), or deep in the back corners, I can find them. And then fall in love. Especially with shoes. I am the queen of expensive shoe crushes and unrequited love.

But for real check this out. I don’t know if I would have the guts to change a pair of shoes, but these are so simple and look really easy to do. Would any of y’all ever do this? Like the look of it?

Daily Favorite

I realize I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I should probably start back up. These really help lighten my mood if I’m having a bad day- y’all should try it!

So, as I’m sitting here in my kitchen, frustrated at my accounting homework, wishing these next five days away until Spring Break officially begins, I’m picturing myself here. Yes, this is my daily favorite. Doesn’t this make you want a giant glass of lemonade?

The Oscars: The Good, the Ridiculously Ugly, and the ones I can’t decide on

Last night I think I went a little bit insane. I love the Oscars. And the stars. And their gorgeous gowns…except Angelina. Couldn’t get over her. BUT other than that, I loved the Oscars! I won’t share any of the winners in case some of y’all haven’t seen it, but it was mostly as expected. And now I have to go see The Artist, because as expected, it did win quite a few awards.

Who were y’all’s favorite dressed? I couldn’t get over how beautiful some of the gowns were!

The Good:

Gwyneth, obvs

Ellie Kemper

Octavia Spencer

“Triple Spanx” is definitely not all to credit here. Octavia looked AMAZING.

Michelle Williams

Duh.

Maria Menounos

Penelope Cruz

She might have looked a little too princess-y for my taste, but if my dad (who was watching with us) takes time to say she looked classy, that means something, y’all.

Sandra Bullock

These photos aren’t great of the dress, but trust me when I say it was beautiful! I saw a red carpet interview with her and couldn’t get over how great she looks!

The Ridiculously Ugly:

Stacy Kiebler

Even though all I know about this girl is that she was at the latest Marchesa show and she’s George Clooney’s recent lady friend, I expected more out of her…because she went to the Marchesa show. I legit think she picked out the ugliest dress at the show.

Jennifer Lopez

No, it doesn’t look that¬†bad in the picture, but in person (and considering the near nip slip), I just don’t like it.

Nancy O’Dell

Does this woman freak out anyone else? Just me?

Missi Pyle

The ones I can’t decide on:

Kristen Wiig

Shailene Woodley

Natalie Portman

Really? Polka dots to the Oscars? Hmm…

Viola Davis

I have undying love for Viola, but her boobs were about to pop out of her dress the whole time. That color green is really pretty on her though!

Louise Roe

Emma Stone

Meryl Streep


And one¬†photoshopped picture¬†for fun…Angie. Because she was literally sticking out her left leg like that the whole night.

Bouquet and etcetera

Okay so maybe these aren’t technically a bouquet…but the title sounded good so just go with it.

It kind of looks like a bouquet right? I think it’s gorgeous!

If someone made this for me right now I would not complain. Actually I think I might fall in love.

If I could have this hair I would be one very happy lady. Realistically, the dramatic blonde ends wouldn’t look as good if she were standing straight up, but if I had that hair I would be in that same position. All day. So my hair would look awesome.

These are just pretty. I want pink. I want to be on the water. And I want some ribbons. Is that too much to ask for?

Float On…

Hi y’all! Sorry I was so absent yesterday. My world has come falling down around me…my Mac’s hard drive has been corrupted or ruined or whatever the tech people called it. Basically, it’s gone, and I feel like I’ve lost a really close friend. Hopefully I’ll get my laptop back with a new hard drive on it early next week, but in the mean time I probably won’t be posting as much. And I love posting on here so a little part of me is dying.

BUT I must march through this with courage. It’s a really tough time that happens to everyone at some point or another, so I gotta get through…please pray for me.

This tattoo is kind of helping me feel better. It makes neck tattoos look pretty and high fashion instead of 1. trashy, or 2. prison-y.

Serena van der Woodsen Style File

Oh, Gossip Girl how you slay me. I’m like a season behind from everyone else (so no spoilers, please!), so of course I see the occasional commercial for the newest season. While I’m dying to find out what happens with Blair (apparently she is getting married?!) or Chuck…or Dan, Nate, Vanessa, Jenny, and most of all, Serena, it’s mostly the hoards of gowns, blazers, coats, and accessories that have me swooning. I guess it’s just another day in the life of New York’s finest, right?

What are some of y’all’s favorite Serena looks? I’m posting a few of mine, but of course it’s damn near impossible to actually find pictures or name them all.
