The Golden Globes
I forgot the Golden Globes were going to be on last Sunday until I saw something on the internet. I did not want to miss Ricky Gervais after his roasting last year! Ever since watching the BBC Office I have been quite a fan. I love his attitude of not caring what others think of what he says which makes him a perfect host for the show. Unfortunately this year he was given too many rules to follow so he was nowhere near as harsh as last year. I cannot wait to see the episode of this new show with sexy man Johnny Depp!!!!
Anyway, how about those gowns?!?! I just wanted to share some of my favorites (I will refrain from pointing out those which I thought were hideous)!
My favorite was Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace. This gown is perfection. She made a statement with the red clutch and lipstick. Luckily she went with a neutral shoe. A red shoe would have taken away from this Versace number.
My second favorite was Claire Danes although this photo does not do the gown justice! I have loved her since My So Called Life. This dress was gorgeous with its amazing lines and the open back to the gown was so sexy!
This gown did not rate high on the fashion experts lists. However I was enthralled with it. Missi Pyle is wearing Junko Yoshioka. I am not too sure what is striking my fancy here….is it the color or the magnificent fabric over the skirt? I don’t know but I love it! It is also a great gown to pig out in since the stomach is hidden.
Madonna! Love her or hate her (I happen to love her), this Reem Acra gown is perfect for her! Both the top and the bottom are fabulous and together make for a flawless look!!!! The cross is just the right neck piece. She has that similar Ricky Gervais attitude of not caring what others think. I always admired that about her.
Lea Michele is my favorite Glee cast member so I will miss her dearly when her character graduates. This gown is extraordinary! Love the simple ring with color. The poor girl looks terribly uncomfortable and I have no idea how she walked in this slinky dress but I love her risk taking.
I usually do not get too excited about a solid black or white gowns but this Zac Posen dress on Elle MacPherson is ridiculously beautiful!
New toys are always fun! I have been wanting to try my hand at metal stamping for some time now. It opens up so many options for jewelry customization.
This kit I received comes with the alphabet and numbers as well as the “and” symbol! It also included the hammer, block and metal cutters. Now I just need to carve out some time to give this a try!!!! I did watch a tutorial on beaducation.com already so I feel somewhat comfortable about this craft.
40th Birthday Card
I received this card from shopflytrap.com.
This website is hysterical to browse with incredibly sarcastic cards that I could never imagine giving to someone since they are that harsh! This card is for a surprise 40th birthday party this weekend. It lists many things that happen to us as we get old. The inside reads “Congratulations, you’re one step closer. And Happy Birthday.”
They also have great naughty adult cards for Valentine’s Day and more! In the package they included this magnet and generic packing slip that made me laugh. This magnet reads “Things that prove you aren’t stupid: You know the difference between there, their and they’re. You never substitute “UR” for “you are”. You don’t do crack. You know the square root of 81. You read books. You don’t watch Jersey Shore. You shop at www.shopfly.com.” Apparently I am stupid but am not going to elaborate on this!!!! LOL. Their generic packing slip cracked me up!
Leaving you now with this funny image of a lizard saving his buddy from a fall! This photo was taken by Alexey Tymoshenko for Cater News.
Have a great week!!! ~Val
