2017 Golden Globes red carpet

The Golden Globes were fantastic last night! La La Land swept every category it was nominated for, Meryl Streep delivered a beautiful speech when accepting the “Lifetime achievement” award, and most of all, every star made a statement on the runway! There were so many amazing looks, but also some eh ones that took my eye.

The guys

Men in tuxes is probably my favorite thing about any fancy occasions, I appreciate the tailoring of a good tux or and love when a guy chooses to go off the standard black route.

From left to right:

Eddie Redmayne-Prada. Eddie is so attractive and putting him in a tux made me melt.

Pharrel Williams-Chanel. This was a really cool and really different look that I think would look weird on anyone besides Pharell.

Donald Glover (Childish Gambino)-Gucci. This tux is so unfortunate, I couldn’t tell if it was silk or corduroy.

Ryan Gosling-Gucci. A white tux can sometimes look a little “waiter” but Ryan looked handsome as hell and added class with the little red flower.

My least favorites

These ladies went for something else and really missed the mark with their looks.

Anna Kendrick-Vionette. At first I loved this dress, the color is beautiful and the skirt flows so gracefully; then I saw the top. I just don’t understand the boob situation, the stlye is so unflattering and odd and the diagonal shoulder strap makes it worse.

Felicity Jones-Gucci. I couldn’t decide if this dress was made for an 8 year old or an 80 year old. Though the colors are nice, the weird lace with the puffy skirt gave off some weird vibes.

Kerrie Washington-Dolce and Gabanna. For a lot of people, this dress was a hit, for me it looked like a craft project. Kerrie’s makeup and styling was beautiful and she looked great in gold, but the weird accessory in the front, the material of the dress, and the sleeves made the dress so complicated and weird.

Zoe Saldana-Gucci. The first thing I thought of when I saw this dress was in Disney’s animated Cinderella, she gets her pink dress destroyed by her evil step sisters. The colors of this dress look great on Zoe, just not together. The tiered skirt and the boy made it super girly and a little immature for her.

The ones I can’t decide on

These ladies had some cool dresses that I liked for some reasons, but for others had me totally confused.

Tracee Ellis Ross-Zuhair Murad. Tracee looked so stunning in this cocktail length dress, but it was something about the proportions that confused me. Her butt looked A+ amazing but her top looked kind of smushed. I totally love the sheer sparkly fabric though and her red lips made her look even cooler.

Carrie Underwood-Iris Serban. The more I look at this dress, the more I like it. The color is so pretty on Carrie and the style really flatters her figure. The whole top of her dress is really exciting but the ruffles with the belt thing, with the structure was a little much for me.

Hailee Steinfeld-Vera Wang. Lavender is my most favorite color ever and doing it with a long flowing skirt makes it 10 times more whimsical. My problem is once again with the top of the dress, my friend cleverly stated it looked like “boob curtains”. I think this dress could have been so much cooler if the top matched the whimsical style of the bottom instead of going weird and sheer.

Drew Barrymore-Lee Harris. When Drew walked out I thought that her dress was covered in really long Q-tips. It was actually really cool crystal thingies, but I didn’t like how everything was placed and the colors made her looked a little washed out and oddly shaped.

The goodies

These ladies KILLED it and looked stunning AF.

Brie Larson-Rodarte. Wearing a red dress on the red carpet risks camoflauge, but Brie looked so stunning in cherrry. Her waist looks so tiny and the cut is so flattering, her sparles and simple styling gives her a timeless vibe.

Gina Rodrigues-Naeem Khan. I loved this dress so much. It reminded me of the 20’s flapper style but more modern because of the length. The deep v and the sparkeles made Gina stand out and look like a diamond.

Issa Rae-Christain Siriano. Issa’s body looked so incredible despite the fact that she was all covered. This further proves that mystery is sexy and she absolutely glowed in white.

Jessica Biel-Ellie Saab. This dress was straight up cool. It was totally original and funky and I loved the cool flowers. I loved that the top was so open and the skirt was fuller but the whole thing looked sexy.

Kristen Wiig-Reem Acra. Kristen looked like a pretty fairy in this dress. The color, lace, and cut is all so flattering and her pixie cut  looks so good. She almost twinned with Michelle Williams, but I think Kristen pulled ahead.

Emma Stone-Valentino. Emma can do no wrong, she is stunning in every way. Her dress was classy and flowy and the stars were straight up cool.

My QUEENS

These two ladies ruled the runway.

Sarah Jessica Parker-Vera Wang. SJP is my queen always and this dress furthered her regal status. She looked elegant, stunning, and everything inbetween.I loved the drama of the sleeves and the skirt and the little belt added the right amount of sparkle. Her hair also looked super cool in the sort of “milk maid fishtail” look.

Lilly Collins-Zuhain Murad. Lilly stuns me with her beauty each time she walks down the red carpet. The dress is so perfect and elegant, I love how modest it is in the front but the back has a nice deep scoop. She looks so incredible with red lipstick and her eyebrows are as always on point.

Tell me your favorite looks of the red carpet!

Xoxo,

DIY Lip scrub

My lips become extremely chapped over the winter no matter how much chap stick  I put on. I hate the way I look in pictures and I hate having to reapply chap stick after every meal or every couple of hours. Finally, I decided to make my own lip scrub to get rid of all the dead skin and moisturize my lips better.

I used this extremely simple recipe that I found on Pinterest. All it is is: olive oil, honey, and brown sugar.

Take the ingredients and mix them together, the ratio of the olive oil to the honey is pretty similar, maybe the size of your pinky nail(it all depends on how much you want to make). Then add enough brown sugar to fully absorb the mixed liquids.

The mixture should look like this when finished. Then, apply to your lips and rub your lips together. The brown sugar should absorb into your skin and your lips should be left feeling baby soft and tasting sweet!

My lips already feel so much better and the scrub literally took 5 minutes to make and apply. As much as I love brand products I love how easy this was and how I can make more when I need it!

Xoxo,
