Golden Globes 2017

NOTE: Yes, I know the Oscars are starting any minute, which makes this post about 89 awards shows late. However, I did start writing this the day after the Globes and figured it was worth posting. A little more brief than past years, but technically, my annual streak is still in tact!

So many great films this year. (If you’re asking, my personal favorite was Hell or High Water, but I think the best film of the year was Moonlight.) And there were some great looks to kick-off the awards season. My picks for the 2017 Golden Globes … Continue reading

Golden Globes 2016

On Monday, college football season came to a close with yet another National Championship for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Lewis Hamilton scored the trifecta with another World Championship this past Formula One season (and I was lucky enough to watch him clinch it in Austin in October). Will we see another repeat winner on the red carpet this awards season?

Sunday’s nights Golden Globes put us on the right foot for the fashion season. It was refreshing to see some newcomers on the carpet, but I missed some of our usual favorites – Charlize Theron, Zoe Saldana, Emma Stone. Regardless, there were some shining stars.

Sparkle for the Holidays with essie’s Winter 2012 Collection

Last month, I found a delightful surprise on my doorstep, essie’s Winter 2012 Collection. There was lots of ooh-ing and ahh-ing on my part when I opened the package and saw the bold and sparkly colors. Essie Weingarten, Founder and Global Creative Director of essie says of the new collection: “I just love the elegant simplicity of a saturated, vibrant look. It’s so luxe and yet, so easy to put together. It’s one part Queen Elizabeth, two parts Duchess of Cambridge. They don’t mince words and never mince color. There’s no arguing with regal color, it’s just divinely right.”
