SAG 2012

I always like to see who wins the SAG's because it is actors voting for actors. It is fun to see the community supporting each other, and everyone having a good time. That being said, let's get down to what we all really care about, the fashion. Honestly I was a bit underwhelmed this year. I don't think as many people brought their A game, like they usually do. But, there were also some surprises for who looked absolutely stunning. Here are my favorites for the night....

Jayma Mays in Reem Acra
Jayma Mays usually looks so doe-eyed and innocent on the show, it was nice to see her as a total show-stopper in this form fitting Reem Acra dress. Reem Acra knows a women's body, and how to make it look stunning. You can tell she felt good in it, because this is the most confident I have ever seen it. Not too mention the lace cut-out in the back of the dress, that you can't see in this picture.This MIGHT be my favorite look of the night.

Emma Stone in Alexander McQueen
First of all, I always love Emma Stone on the red carpet. She always makes the best decisions concerning style. Second of all, I am ALL for a vintage look, so this whole ensemble really spoke to me. She nailed the 50's Glam vibe right on the head! Not only is the dress, hair and make-up absolutely fabulous, but those might be the best shoes I have ever seen on the red carpet. I need to find a way to get them in my closet. 

Maya Rudolph in Naeem Khan
I honestly think this is the best I have EVER sen Maya Rudolph look! Not only does this dress make her figure look amazing, but her hair and make-up compliment it so well! I also just adore the beading work on the bust. And black and white is such a classic combination, that you can never really go wrong working them on the red carpet. 

Dianna Agron in Carolina Herrera
This dress is of course a great color, and looks amazing on her, but the real focus here is her beautiful hair and make-up! She looks so ethereal it is kind of unreal. Her hair is just the right amount of unkempt, and her make-up is airy and subtle but still beautiful. I have no complaints about her dress, but it just isn't where the focus was for me.

Jessica Chastain in Calvin Klein
Although I thought the dress was a tiny bit too long, taking away from the column effect, I still thought that Jessica Chastain looked beautiful! Sometimes you don't have to have the most beaded dress at the show to stand out. A beautiful color, and a dress that fits perfectly, is enough in my book to stand out above the crowd. I don't think that Jessica could ask for a better color to compliment her hair color and skin tone! The only thing I would have wished was too see a bit more jewelry. But besides that, she looked amazing!

Rose Byrne in Ellie Saab
Now I know that she ended up on a LOT of worst dressed lists, but I kinda like the vibe she went for. I know it is different then what we usually see on the red carpet, but that doesn't make it bad. I know a majority of people couldn't pull this look off, but I think Rose Byrne is totally rocking it! I love the idea of a jumper on the red carpet, and the jewels on it just bring it to another level. Good for you Rose Byrne! You go Rose Byrne!

So those were my favorites for the night! Who did you like? Who did you hate? Let's hear it!

On Your Mark

You know that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach, when you think things are all about to change, and you are excited but extremely nervous at the same time? (Run-on sentence much?) That feeling when you are at the starting line of a race, waiting for someone to yell "GO!"? Wellp, that is me currently. 

You see, life is full of choices, and there is nobody out there to tell you that you are making the right one. Sure, people have their opinions, and they are always greatly appreciated. But at the end of the day, you are responsible for your own decisions. You just have to be decisive and pray to God that you are making the right choice. 

But if any of you know me truly, then you know that I might be the most indecisive person on the entire planet. Seriously. Making choices gives me anxiety. I am always afraid I am choosing wrong, even if the decision is what to eat for dinner tonight. It is something I am working on. I just have to learn to have confidence in myself, and not second guess all the time. 

We shall see....

SB Part Three

So. The best part of going on a Road Trip with Four Bloggers, is there are four blogger minds hard at work the whole time. That is why we have to credit Tammy with the wonderful idea of pulling over for an impromptu photo shoot on the beach as we were leaving SB. 

We attempted some planned poses...which all didn't turn out exactly how we planned....
{we got ONE where we were all in the air!}
 {Attempting to spell love...}
{yeah YOU!}

{Checkin out the goods}

Then we moved our little shoot to the nearby Railroad Tracks.
 {One of my favorite pictures of the day. My love Kelsey Boo Boo}
{Tammy gettin' her Yoga on}

The one thing I love about us bloggers is we never miss an opportunity to capture special moments. We might be crazy kids....but we know how keep them memories!

SB Part Two

After a night out with these crazy ladies, we were all pretty tempted to stay in bed all day. Instead we willed ourselves up, and the first stop was Blenders in the Grass per my request.
This place has amazing smoothies. If you ever go to SB, please go! And get a Blood Orange, or whatever you please. (Blood Orange is just my favorite, and I have been craving one ever since)...now I am sad I don't have one in my hand right now...anyways moving on...

I was super excited to get this day going because we were going to Solvang, and I had never been before. After the beautiful drive up the coast on the 101 for a bit, we arrived at this little Danish hideaway just in time for some Danish treats. 
Honestly guys. These were the best danish pastries I have ever had in my entire life. I don't think I will ever be able to enjoy a store-bought danish pastry again.

We spent the rest of the day wandering in and out of cute little shops, and finding ways to entertain ourselves....
 {Yes. This happened.}
 {Solvang must know of my love for Jason Segel. I was very tempted to buy this puppet as a tribute of my love for him..}

Oh. Btw. Have you heard of Aebleskivers? They are basically amazing pancake balls (for lack of a better term), and they are the best tasting things on earth...
{That is me shamelessly getting after these delicious pancake balls}

This town was too cute for words. And we ate....a lot....but that is okay because it was totally worth it. AND we totally walked all the calories off (shhh!). The best part? The day wasn't even done yet....

SB Part One

Hi. My name is Kai, and I am a week behind on my posts. No matter. I am here now to tell you about a wonderful trip I had with three lovely ladies. You may have heard of them (if not, you should chickity check them out), Kelsey, Tammy, and Olivia

I got picked up by this crazy crew early in the morning. Once we got to Santa Barbara and checked into our hotel, we enjoyed an amazing brunch at Cajun Kitchen.
{Yum. I want to go back}
{My boo boo Kelsey}

We decided to walk off our breakfast with a bit of shopping on State Street. This is one of my favorite places to shop, mostly for the amazing atmosphere State St. has. I could honestly walk this street for hours...

...but not this day, because we had better things in mind. (a.k.a a bit of wine tasting)

Due to some local recommendations we ended up on a street of three little wineries right in a row: Cork N Crown, Kunin, and Municipal. It was so nice to be able to walk from one to the other, and have ourselves a little wine tasting tour of sorts. 

 {Not sure what is happening here, but I am not a fan. Anybody see Ruby in the back?}
I honestly couldn't choose a favorite, they all had great wine and a great atmosphere. Most importantly, I was surrounded by amazing people, which makes any event more fun! I have never been wine tasting before, so this was really awesome experience for me! 

The we were off to explore State St. at night!
Us ladies painted the town red!

Stay tuned for more Santa Barbara amazingness...
