Red Carpet: The Academy Awards! ♥

Hey Girls!
Everyone looked so stunning on the Red Carpet last night! :) 
Here are some memorable outfits from the night...

Maria Menounos
I love the colour of this dress so much! Also the flow and side/back is really pretty <3

Emma Stone
I don't really like this dress because of the red bow on the top of it. But I do think that Emma looked really pretty and I loved her accessories.

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
They looked so GOOD! I loved Angelina's dress! It is structured, black, a slit and really pretty fabric.I also like how she had her classic red lip. Brad also looked very handsome. 

Jennifer Lopez
I think she looked gorgeous. I loved her dress, I also liked her hair.

Stacy Keilbler & George Clooney
I want her dress. I love the metallic gold colour and the flower detail on the side. She looked stunning! George also looked really good.

Gwyneth Paltrow
This is such a chic outfit! I love the cape <3 I think she pulled off this look! It was one of my favourites of the night!

What was your favourite outfit of the night?

Tag: My Nail Polish Obsession!

Hey Everyone! 
Today I am going to be doing the nail polish obsession tag :) 
What's your favourite nail polish company?
My favourite nail polish company is a tie between OPI and Essie. I really like Essie's collections but I like OPI's general colour selection. 
Glitter or no glitter?
No glitter. I have some glitter polishes and I find them way to hard to take off. I don't mind the look of them though.
OPI, China Glaze, or Essie?
Tough question. I would say Essie, just because it is easier for me to get Essie rather than OPI and China Glaze and I don't mind Essie colours.
When do you change your nail polish?
I change my nail polish around once a week.
What's your favourite color on your nails?
Hmm...Revlon Copper Penny & Essie Smooth Sailing (I can't choose between them!)
Darks or Brights?
BRIGHTS! :) I love neon nail polishes and I only have a few dark nail polishes that I wear in the winter :P 
What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?
I am wearing Mesmerized by Essie. It is a really pretty blue colour.
Matte Nails--In or Out?
I personally don't like matte nails.
French Manicure?
French Manicures are cute :) I have only had one once! 
Favourite Winter Colour?
OPI Lincoln Park After Dark
(I am adding a question) Favourite Summer Colour?
China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy!

What's your favourite nail polish?

Fitness: The Couch Workout!

I was looking through weheartit and found this picture! It is from Glamour magazine written by Shaun Dreisbach designed by Bally Total Fitness.
I thought it was the coolest thing! It is great to do if your watching your favourite show and still want to work out. I will type out all the moves because it might be hard to read:
Sofa Squat
What it works: Your butt and thighs
Sit on edge of couch with feet hip-width apart, knees aligned directly over ankles. Stand, place hands on hips, then bend knees and squat down to sit on couch, but only let your butt tap the edge, as shown; return to standing. Do two sets of 15 reps.
Cushion Crunch
What it works: Your abs and obliques
Lie on couch and straighten legs; extend arms overhead by ears. Lift leg towards ceiling, keeping it straight, as you lift shoulders off couch and reach both hands for left toes, as shown; pause, then lower to start. Do 15 reps, switch legs and repeat. Do two sets.
Split Lunge
What it works: Your thighs and calves
Stand in front of your couch; extend left leg back, resting on ball of foot on couch, hands on hips. Bend knee 90 degrees as shown (don't let knee go past toes); pass through heel and return to start. Do 15 reps, switch legs and repeat. Do two sets. 
Incline Push-up
What it works: Your chest, arms and shoulders
Place hands shoulder-width apart on edge or arm of couch; walk feet back so legs are straight and you're up on toes. Bend elbows and lower chest towards couch, as shown; push back up. Do as many as you can with abs pulled in and hips aligned. Rest and repeat.
Remote Rear Fly
What it works: Your back and shoulder
Lie face down on couch, left arm off edge and extended towards floor, holding the remote or any light weight object as shown. Raise remote up and out too shoulder height, squeezing shoulder blades together, pause, lower to start. Do 15 reps, switch sides and repeat. Do two sets.

Will you be trying out this workout?

Red Carpet: Grammy Awards! ♥

Hey Girls!
Grammy Awards is such a fun award night where people can go all out with their outfits! Here are just some of the dresses from the night...

Taylor Swift looked stunning! It was one of my favourite looks! The dress is so detailed and well designed. 

Kelly Rowland. I find the top of the dress really unique and pretty. Overall I think she looks beautiful. 

Nicki Minaj. I got a better understanding of what she wore on the red carpet (and being with a bishop) after watching her performance of Roman Holiday. Her look wasn't my favourite.

Carrie Underwood. I really liked her dress. It looks really elegant and I love the fabric. I was also in love with the dress she wore during her performance! So pretty <3 

Katy Perry. I don't really like this dress. I was watching the Grammy's and people were saying how they loved it but it's not my cup of tea. 

Adele! She defiantly stole the show winning 6 awards and singing amazingly after having throat surgery! It was so cute when she was crying while accepting Album of the year <333 Adele also looked fabulous in her dress!

Rosie and Sophia Grace. These girls are so adorable!! They got to interview some stars for Ellen and wore pink and gold tutu's and golden crowns :) 

There were so many more amazing dresses like Adele, Paris Hilton, and Jesse J. Congratulations to everyone that won!

Who do you think was best dressed?

Valentine's day is only a few days away! I thought it would be cute to show some of my favourite treats and what I am going to might be making this year :)

Cupid's Cups. This is my favourite treat, I make it all year round! The main ingredients are jello and cool whip. Check out the recipe here

These are so cute! They are Mini Heart Shaped Cake! Don't they look like those little candies?? So adorable!! Get the recipe here

This looks so GOOD! It is a Frozen Chocolate "Souffles". I am totally making this! Learn how to make it here :) 

This is a cute little "heart" drink to make in the morning. I would love waking up to this! The recipe for this drink is here

Other Ideas...
Some other good recipe ideas include chocolate covered strawberries (of course!) and brownies (or cookies) in the shape of hearts!

Hope you enjoyed these tasty treats and remember to make them with love! :)

What is your favourite Valentine's Day treat?

Get The Look: Aria Montgomery

Hey Girls! 
This is look 2 in my Pretty Little Liar Series! If you want to check out my Get The Look post on Spencer the click here :)
Makeup & Hair 
For Aria's makeup I would start off with your everyday foundation & any natural coloured blush.
Her eyes are doll like and she likes to use eyeliner to make them pop. I would use black liner on your top lash line and line your waterline half way (from the outer corner to the middle). She also has really voluminous lashes, use any volumizing mascara or fake lashes. Aria's eyebrows also frame her face, I would suggest filling them in to make them more bold. For shadow she tends to create neutral smokey eyes. Her lips vary. Sometimes she wears deep colours and other times neutral. I would use a berry lip stick because I notice that she wears that colour the most. 
Here is a entire makeup tutorial from my favourite beauty guru, missglamorazzi :) 
For hair it is usually down and has a loose curl. To get that look use a large barrel curler (1 inch and up). Her hair is also very shiny so I would suggest any shine product.
Aria defiantly has a more edgy and unique way of dressing compared to the other girls. She is not afraid to try new pieces (like her neon yellow shoes in last weeks episode). She also likes to layer and accessorize. Aria tends to wear girly dresses and a leather jacket over it (her main statement piece). 
Here are some clothes that I could see Aria wearing:
Hope you enjoyed and I will have Emily's look up next week! :)

Taylor Swift in This Month's Issue of Vogue! ♥

Hey Girls! 
I am in love with this months Vogue! As soon as I heard that Taylor Swift was going to be on the cover I wanted it.
 Inside there is an article about what she was like back when she was a kid, her sense of style, her music, and more. I think that Taylor is so down to earth and amazing, and I am SO excited for her new album (they talk about it a bit in the article).

I am also really loving Taylor with bangs! I heard in an interview that Vogue wanted to give Taylor bangs so they were trying to use fake ones, but Taylor told them “Oh, just cut it. It’s Vogue"
I really hope she decides to keep them for a while because they look so good on her!

"It never mattered to me that people in school didn't think country music was cool, and made fun of me for it-though it did matter to me that I was not wearing the clothes everybody was wearing at that moment. But at some point, I was just like, I like wearing sundresses and cowboy boots." - Taylor Swift

Overall, I think Taylor looks flawless in this issue! And I love/really want her cowboy boots (just saying).  

What do you guys think about this months issue?
