Fashion at the Golden Globes

Yay, awards season!!

I spent my Sunday night watching the Golden Globes. I love the show itself, seeing who won what and listening to the great speeches. But lets face it, half of the fun is the red carpet. Here are some of my favorites from the night:

Kate Winslet in Yves Saint Laurent
Just impeccable, simple yet sophisticated.
Eva Mendes in Dior
Love the dramatic bow and the turquoise necklace adds a great pop of color
Sandra Bullock in Dior
Fun and flirty ruffles and beautifully draped at the top
Eva Longoria in Reem Acra
Fits her perfectly...amazing color in a sea of neutrals

And now here are some looks I didn't enjoy so much...

Demi Moore in Dior
Love the dress, just not so much on her
Blake Lively in Nina Ricci
Dress looks too tight and the hair looks a bit too casual
Renee Zellweger in Carolina Herrera
Just something I don't like...maybe its the dress or the crazy hair
Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive
Hate to say this but I expected something more from her. Maybe a bold statement necklace could have made her stand out more

Overall, the dresses looked amazing...and the guys didn't look so bad themselves :)

And a BIG congrats to Kate Winslet (one of my favorite actresses) for taking home not one but two Golden Globes last night. Finally! It was about time.


What Not to Buy: Avon Mini Glimmersticks

I made a purchase at Avon recently during their big end-of-the-year clearance/sale/etc. I usually love Avon. Their products are cheap, decent quality, and not tested on animals...what more could a girl ask for? What caught my eye were these "Mini" Glimmersticks. It had great reviews (which now I am starting to suspect are fake, who knows?) and cost only 69 cents. Wow, I thought, what a steal. So I bought two, one in brown and the other in blue, thinking I had just scored the deal of the year. A few days later my shipment arrived and out came this...

Yes, that is the actual size of the product next to my pinkie. And I do have small hands. When they said "mini", that's quite an understatement. I didn't know that they actually meant one time use. They were .0014 oz each. I think most samples are bigger than that. The quality of the product (which is nothing to rave about) doesn't make up for the size either.

Well, after I got over the initial shock of how microscopic my new eyeliner was, I remembered why I bought it in the first place: 69 cents. Yup, no harm done to my bank account. And I guess it would be a good travel size item?


Happy New Year!

To my lovely ladies,

Wishing you all a happy, healthy, and fabulous new year!
