Oscars 2011 Red Carpet Faves

I decided to make a post about the Oscar dresses this year because all of them took my heart.. Some a little more than the others in which I’m going to post here. I’m always on the lookout during Awards Season because I love seeing all the clothes and the dresses and it makes me so excited. My favorite red carpets are always the first and the last. The Golden Globes and The Academy Awards. So here are some of my Oscar favorites this season: The Reds I am a HUGE fan of long red dresses and gowns so I was especially happy when I saw a few of them in the red carpet. All these four worn by Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang, Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein, Anne Hathaway in Valentino and Penelope Cruz in L’Wren Scott look great. My favorite out of the four would have to be Sandra’s. When I saw this dress I immediately decided that it was going to be my favorite of the night. If there’s one designer …

Good Wolf vs Bad Wolf

I just watched the latest 90210 yesterday (srsly, the only reason why I still watch that show is coz of Matt Lanter–who am I kidding? I love shallow shows) and it was the episode when the girls went away for a yoga retreat. There was a scene where they were all in the sauna where they poured out all their problems and fears. When Naomi (played by AnnaLynne McCord) poured out her story about the rape incident the guru told her to choose between the two wolves inside of her. One wolf was good and full of joy and love the other one was bad and basically had all the negative qualities. So the question was, which wolf was going to win? The answer was fairly simple, but it wasn’t something I expected. The writer of this episode definitely hit a nerve with this one. The yoga guru said, “The one you feed.” I’m going on a deep note here because I need to get this out that’s why here I am at 2 in …

No Sex No City

Tonight I watched Sex and the City 2. I am a huge fan of the series, although there are a few episodes per season I missed, especially the later ones. I watched the first movie and loved it, and after watching this one I loved it even more. I don’t care what critics say, I kept an open mind before watching the movie hoping that I would forget just a little bit of the real world and dive into a world of Carrie and Louboutins. I was in for a ride, a really great one. Initially I was put off because the movie’s length stretches up to more than 2 hours but now that I think about it, it was definitely more than worth my time. The best part was I didn’t have to think, there was no concrete storyline, I already knew all the characters VERY well so I didn’t need explanation. Simply put, it was shallow and superficial—done RIGHT. Being a girl the visuals were great. Louboutins left and right, great dresses, it …

Double Two in Two Days

I always make a big deal about turning a year older usually right before my birthday. Ever since I was about to turn 20, I’ve always been like, “Shit I can’t believe I’m turning a year older. SO FREAKING OLD.” Then my birthday comes, and I feel the same. Sometimes it frustrates me because I want to be older in terms of outlook in life, but it seems like I’m taking a step back. Sure I’ve graduated university and currently but inside there’s major lack of maturity. The good old carefree days are gone and as much as I want to apply my carefree manner to my future I’m having a hard time because the future is kinda freaky. I recently watched this Korean film, Hello Schoolgirl, and there’s a scene in particular which resonated with me so well. I’m not scared of turning older, not scared of the experiences, it’s the fact that adults are faced with so many things at a time especially when it’s not positive, is something I don’t look forward …

Movie Absent

I don’t know why but I haven’t been watching movies lately. I always suck when it comes to blockbusters and such because I usually wait until the hype of the movie dies down before I watch it. I also prefer watching movies which are about 1-2 years old unless of course, it’s a movie I’ve been dying to watch beforehand. The problem is, I’ve put off watching so many movies that they’ve all piled up and I haven’t had a chance to watch them at all. Plus when that happens, new movies come out and I put them off again so it’s like a weird cycle. The last movie I watched in the theater this year was Valentine’s Day (IKR) and since then I haven’t gone yet. While I love going to the movies, I prefer watching them in the comfort of my own couch or bed so I love movie nights in. Anyone? Also the reason why I didn’t relate much to this years’ Oscars. Every year I’m always looking forward to the Oscars …
