A Request

A Prayer for my Grandmother.

I can't really get into what happened, nor do I think I want to on here. But I do ask you guys to do me a huge favor and say a prayer for Grandmother (we call her Mimi), who is in the hospital. She is so important to my family, and to me. I know not all of you pray, but any positive thoughts you have would be greatly appreciated by my family and I.

Usually I am so good at putting my thoughts into words, but today I can't. So all I am left with is a request. A request for a prayer. A prayer for my Mimi.

The Oscars 2012

I don't know about you guys, but I thought the fashion last night was a major snooze fest! It isn't that anyone looked particularly bad, it is just that most everyone looked old. 

I know it is the Academy Awards, and by all means, class it up! But, that doesn't mean you can shy away from taking risks in the fashion department all together! Some of the youngest stars there looked the most aged...

But there were some shining stars out there! Here are a few of my faves!
Jessica Chastain: Alexander McQueen
{1 2}
I mean, talk about a wow factor! The black and gold together make such a great contrast! She some how manages to look like a Greek Goddess and Warrior all at the same time, and I like it! Not to mention, how perfect does her hair and make-up look???? Way to go Jessica!

Milla Jovovich: Elie Saab
Wow! There was a sea of subdued tones on the carpet. Whites, Nudes, Peaches, Creams...But none of them rocked it like Milla did! I think the vintage hair and the red lips make her stand out above the others! Not only that, but her confidence exudes from her.

Michelle Williams: Louis Vuitton
Well hello, pop of color! I am so glad Michelle Williams got it right! Although I am not crazy about her Pink lips with the Coral dress, the dress steals the show. I love the detailing, and the bow at the hip! If you know me at all, you know I am a sucker for bow details. But most importantly, the color makes her look youthful, and fun!

Rose Byrne: Vivienne Westwood
I think the term is Va-Va-Voom! Everything about this is fierce and flawless! I love Rose, and thinks she always makes divine fashion choices. And her best accessory is her flawless bob! This dress fits her like a glove, and the low back detailing adds an unexpected flare. 

Unfortunately those are my only favorites, here are some notes on things I didn't like...

- Natalie Portman tried to be unexpected with Polka-Dots, but I think the cut of her dress reminded me of a punk Prom Dress.
- Kristen Wiigg looks beautiful but WHY has she worn the SAME color for all the Awards shows????? Nude every single time!!
- Gwyneth Paltrow and a cape? I don't get it.
- I usually LOVE Emma Stone's fashion choices but this dress has been done before, and it is way to old for her.
- Penelope Cruz's dress was bland and a typical red carpet dress. There was nothing special to it?
-Octavia Spencer's dress reminded me too much of her dress at the last show...

I swear I am not normally so negative. I was a little baffled with the whole fashion choices...
What did you guys think???

Fashion Friday

Let me tell you, I was so glad to see Blonde Episodes Fashion Friday link-up this week! I have been CRAVING some Summer Sandals. 

I need to get my act together and buy myself some more shoes. I always want to buy new pairs, but can never justify the purchase. I suppose Blonde Episodes has just given me a sign to go ahead and indulge a little (if you guys weren't try to give me a sign, just go with it).

Anyways, here are a few open-toed lovelies that I have been drooling over as of late....

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11/ 12

Okay. So a few of these miiiiiight be out of my price range. A girl can dream right? Either way, I think it is time for some sandals!

I have been thinking about blogging, and why I do it. First of all, I have read posts like these, and never thought I would do one. I love writing, a lot, but this whole blogging universe comes with a lot of disappointments as well. It's hard not to think the friends you make on here, aren't real friends. But honestly most of the people aren't.They might leave you nice comments every once and a while, but they aren't what is real. 

It is disheartening when you think you have made connections, that you really haven't made. I am such a positive and nice person, and I usually trust people way too soon. Maybe that is why it is so disappointing to find out how some people truly value you. I think I just always want people to like me, and it bothers me when some people decide to not include me. 

That isn't to say that my followers aren't amazing, and I really do love and appreciate you guys so much! There are SO many great people to meet in this blogging community of ours. But I think at the same time, I need to not let myself get so wrapped up into it. 

This probably just looks like random ramblings to you. And most of you have clicked past my blog already because there is way too much writing on this post, and not enough pictures (Honestly I do the same thing sometimes). I promise I will get back to my regular positivity tomorrow. Today I am just pondering why it is I subject myself to a popularity contest of sorts...

Do you guys ever get stressed out with this whole blogging world sometimes?

Dear Nick,

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I am sorry that we are not together today. 
It breaks my heart when we are apart for more than a day.
You are the most amazing man I have ever met.
 I don't know how I got so lucky to have a boyfriend like you.
Thank you for loving me at my best and my worst. 

I know I am a handful sometimes, but no one gets me like you do.
You laugh at my stupid jokes.
You make me smile when all I want to do is cry.
You know what I am thinking, even when I don't.
You help me make decisions.
You cook me dinner every night (sorry I can't cook).
You give me a kiss and a hug every single day.
You never forget to tell me "I love you".
You get me.

 Thanks for loving me! 

I love you so much! 
Happy Valentine's Day!

Sponsor Post #2!

The best thing about planning our Meet-Up was getting to work with such amazing sponsors. We were so grateful to have so many companies who wanted to get involved with The So Cal Blogger Meet-Up. Today I wanted to give you a look into our Goody Bags!

We were lucky enough to have Skinny Tees donate 60 awesome totes for our Goody Bags!

Not only that, but we were able to put some pretty awesome treats for our guest thanks to tons of Sponsors!

There also were some things that we didn't get a picture of, but I made sure to include everyone in the post yesterday. Again, thank you guys so much for supporting us, you can never know how much we appreciate it!

The So Cal Blogger Meet-Up

This year I was lucky enough to join Kelsey, Tammy, Olivia, Stephanie, and Hollie to help plan The So Cal Blogger Meet-Up! We were so pleasantly surprised to see the amount of people that wanted to participate in our little event. Over 60 local bloggers!! 

We all gathered at Roppongi in La Jolla, which was an amazing location. It was amazing to see so many girls, and get to meet a bunch of them in person for the first time! 

By the way, since I was so busy running around trying to host, I didn't take many pictures. So thank you all who were on top of it, and took some great shots! This blog would be empty without y'all.
We played a few games to get to know one each other. The first was the "celebrity game", where you have a celebrity on your back, and you have to figure out who it is.

There were also yummy goodies provided by Roppongi! And a candy bar, provided from us hostesses!

We also had some pretty awesome sponsors give us some pretty awesome stuff to give away, but I will save that for a whole different post! 

This day was so fun! I loved talking to all the different people, and learning about what makes each one of us unique and awesome! I truly love the Blogger community, and believe it is filled with some pretty cool people. 

I was also lucky enough to have my Mom in attendance! She is a cool cat.

Cheers to my fellow hosts!

Thank you guys SO much for coming! We hope to see you at the next one!
