Oscars 2015

Did you guys get a chance to watch the Oscars last night? I always have a soccer game right in the middle which bums me out, but this year I was able to catch a large chunk. While it wasn’t the most entertaining Oscars of all time (a tad boring if you ask me), it was full of love and social awareness. Lady Gaga was absolutely amazing singing songs from the Sound of music, Birdman & The Grand Budapest Hotel each took home a couple statues, and I was very happy with the overall winners! Did you guys think anyone got snubbed?

*If you missed out and are catching up online – here is a fun recap of the best moments!

And while the awards show is the main focus, how can we not talk about the fashion?! It was as beautiful as ever – check out some of our favorites…

Happy Friday!

cheesecake5-1-of-1blogsize copyOh sweet, sweet Friday. The only thing that could make you any sweeter would be the this featured orange-chocolate cheesecake by The Vanilla Bean Blog. The  idea of curling up with this & a cafe au lait by the window and a blanket sounds positively divine, don’t you think? Hope you all have lovely weekends, complete with sweetness in any form!

Happy Weekend


{Image via}

With Saturday already being February (!!) all we’ve been seeing is pink, pink pink for Valentine’s Day. Is it sad that we’re almost over pink already and the holiday hasn’t even began? That’s why we liked this picture…it’s definitely pink, but it’s also weirdly dramatic and edgy. But don’t worry, we’re not completely done with Valentine’s Day quite yet…we’ll have some VDay related posts for you in the coming weeks! Until then, have a fabulous, weekend, enjoy the Super Bowl if that’s your thing, and check out our Friday links…
