And The Award Goes To...

I always make it a point to catch the entire red carpet coverage during awards season and tonight was no different during the 83rd Academy Awards. Gwyneth, Mila and Jennifer were my choices for best dressed hands down and they all glowed from head to toe in their selections. Who were your picks?

Hey Now You're A Frock Star...

I'm a bit late on trying these new Sally Hansen Salon Effects because I've been looking for them with no success for about 2 weeks now. The other day while in the valley I randomly stopped by a CVS and low and behold they had an entire stash of every color and pattern imaginable, too bad I missed the buy one get one sale by a couple of days. I ended up choosing the color "Frock Star" because it looked festive and similar to "Happy Birthday" by Deborah Lippmann.

So I'm not gifted when it comes to painting my nails and I wasn't sure how easy this whole process would be for me. After reading someone's review on a fashion board, I went for an alternative method than what the directions called for and glad that I did, thanks Amber! I ended up cutting the excess off of each nail with the orange stick instead of filing it off, by doing this I was able to use the same strip on two nails instead of one and now I still have enough for another full set. Overall I am pleased with the result, the process was simple and they look awesome! I'm not convinced they will last the entire ten days as the box claims but either way they are a pleasant alternative to painting my nails.

The Best Of Everything, Nothing But The Best...

Yesterday started out on what I thought would be a high note when Michael C. Hall aka Dexter came into my store. I must have looked like I saw a ghost when he walked in because I am totally a Dexter fanatic, like president of the fan club! It wasn't until after he left that I immediately realized that while talking to him it never dawned on me to ask for a picture. Let me tell you it didn't cross my mind because I am totally not the person to see someone and ask for a picture, but c'mon it's Dexter!

Anyways the day went downhill from there, and my boyfriend and I decided after work drinks were extremely necessary. We ventured to the Roger Room which is always a sure thing because of the cool atmosphere and killer cocktails. I went with one of my tried and true favorites, the Tijuana Brass. It's a perfect mix of tequila, lime juice and agave syrup topped with cucumber foam, which is out of the world amazing! If you're in LA and feel like stepping back in time when drinks were carefully created and crafted I highly suggest the Roger Room at 370 N La Cienega Blvd, don't be fooled by the fortune teller signs out front it's an ode to prohibition speakeasies.

I'm totally loving these Giuseppe Zanotti Twiggy Sandals for spring/summer. They'd go great with all my longer bell bottoms and floral dresses and I'm already dreaming about the outfits I'd wear them with.

Started off the day stopping by Saks to try on the Patterson J Kincaid cammy lace shorts. I ended up passing on the shorts but the trip resulted in one of my guilty confessions...outfit pics in the fitting room! Ended the day by hanging out at my boyfriends store on La Brea and took a few pics outside before heading off to dinner.

What I'm Wearing:
F21 fringe scarf, Nation LTD Mississippi T, Old Bell's, Vintage Turquoise Bracelets, Gap Jean Jacket

How amazing does Blake look in Marchesa at the label's Fall '11 fashion show, she is quickly becoming one of my fashion favorites.

Will You Be My Valentine...

My Valentine's Day started off on a sweet note when my boyfriend surprised me with cupcakes from Frosted Cupcakery in Hollywood. I've been on a quest to find the best red velvet cupcake in LA and heard that Frosted makes an amazing version. Not only were these pretty, but delicious too and I was very happy to see they had cream cheese frosting unlike others I've tried with buttercream. I think my vote still goes to Society Bakery in Dallas, TX but these are the best I've had so far in LA.

Romper Room...

I'm loving this outfit on Net A Porter featuring an Etoile by Isabel Marant Wes Romper and Rag & Bone Bouverie Jacket. It already feels like spring here in LA but I can't wait to officially break out the shorts again!

Barney's Rubble...

Yesterday I dragged my boyfriend downtown early in the morning for the start of Barney's Semi-Annual warehouse sale. I couldn't believe the mayhem when we walked in, shoes everywhere, full trashbags dragging on the ground and clothes discarded into empty boxes. I honestly don't remember the last sale being this crazy! There were a few diamonds in the rough such as an Isabel Marant Thai fur coat, Philip Lim trench layered leather and an amazing Dries Van Noten embellished vest none of which fit me properly. Overall I had high hopes of finding a couple pairs of Miu Miu's or Louboutin's that I never bought from this last season but unfortunately ended up leaving empty handed. I say now that I'll never return to another insane Barney's sale because the prices and merchandise aren't that great, but most likely will be dragging my boyfriend to the next one at the end of summer.

Grill Em All & Let God Sort 'Em Out...

On Saturday night my boyfriend and I made the trek out to Eagle Rock Brewery to try out some of their microbrews. The winners of Food Network's Great Food Truck Race, Grill Em All were serving up burgers to patrons outside. I'm not really a beer drinker so I stuck with the taster flight which gave me mini versions of the brewery's most popular beers and surprisingly I really liked two, Solidarity and Manifesto. Now it's burger time!! I opted for the "Miley Cyrus" which is basically a cheeseburger with a fancy name and the double dipped frites which were "dirty" style and amazing! Overall I would definitely recommend both Eagle Rock Brewery and Grill em All to anyone who is curious to try them out and I'm sure I'll frequent both places again.

I've always been in love with LA landmarks, especially the Hollywood sign so when I saw the new J. Crew ad campaign you can imagine I was smitten. They shot all over town and even after gaining the permits to shoot at the Hollywood sign, the police still arrived at the scene because they thought they were trespassing!

Bohemian Rhapsody...

Seeing as awards season is in full swing I thought I would dig out these pictures of one of my favorite red carpet looks ever. Kate Hudson wore this Valentino gown to the 2003 Golden Globes and not only was the dress amazing, but it fit her bohemian personality so well that she exuded confidence and beauty unlike anyone I had seen.
