Oh Those Gowns & Glory

So I was working yesterday and unfortunately didn't get to watch the 2013 Oscars *sadface* and being the movie buff that I am, I am disappointed in myself that out of all the films involved in this years show, I have only seen Silver Linings Playbook (which I have been meaning to review) and Les Miserables. 

It may have something to do with the fact that most of the nominated films only just came out in New Zealand. We really need to step up our game.

HOWEVER the fact that I missed the show, obviously didn't stop me from stalking all of the glorious Red Carpet fashion and all the winners (and losers) of the night!

Without further ado... My favourite looks from The 85th Annual Academy Awards!

But my Best Dressed award goes to the lovely...
She seriously looked like a princess and if we are being serious, I want to be her best friend. Am I the only one? She is my favourite person in Hollywood right now, so down to earth and hilarious. And she handled that fall like an absolute pro. Congrats to her! 
22 and an Oscar winner? Obviously the rest of us are failing at life.

And of course, we love to point out the not-so-hot choices of the night. These dresses were a bit of a let down. Some not too bad but nothing special, some downright horrendous *erm Brandi Glanville* anyone else wondering why she was even there? If she can go, surely I can go?

Oh The Oscars... So much excitement. Maybe one day I will be there...
Ha, who are we kidding, only in my dreams...

I Solemnly Swear I'm Up to Only Good...

I have received and sent away my Criminal Background check! I am officially not a crim, which should help with the whole getting a visa, and entering the States thing! It's not a huge step, but its something to cross off the ol' check list which makes me happy! One step closer. The next step will be receiving our Welcome Packets which have a bunch of info on our program and our visa applications. So much excite!! (Also, Harry Potter reference in the title? If you got that, we are officially friends!)

In the meantime I have been loving a whole lotta music recently, when I'm working in the jewellery store by myself, I get to play my music so I'm enjoying picking songs to be obsessed with! I thought I would share a few with you...

Carrie Underwood - Two Black Cadillacs
I love how badass this song is! So dark for Carrie but so so good. I have been playing this one on repeat for days! And the video is kickass!

Phillip Phillips - Gone Gone Gone

This song is just so darn catchy, Phillips voice is all gruff and smooth at the same time, an unbeatable combination for any girl!

Finlay Quaye & William Orbit - Dice
This one is an oldie but a goodie, I mean The O.C anyone? That scene where Ryan's sprinting to reach Marissa in time to save her from New Year's kissing Oliver? Swoon! LOVE LOVE LOVE this song!

What are your Music Loves at the moment?

So This is Love

Mickey & Minnie 'So This Is Love' Wallpaper

I spent my Valentines day drinking coffee and watching Game of Thrones. Just the way I like it!

Then later on in the evening I headed over to my friend Alanna's to watch her recap of her time in India. There were photos, videos, snacks and a bonfire, and it was great spending Valentines with friends, just relaxing and treating it like any other day, which, who are we kidding, it is.

Yea I totally rocked a Sari momentarily. I tied it up ALL wrong though haha, its a lot harder than it looks!

My Friends are GREAT Liars...

Tuesday was my 21st birthday.

I spent the morning on the couch watching Cougar Town, then I went and finally saw Les Miserables with my friend Imogen. I then got the lounge set up for a old school sleepover extravaganza. 

Little did I know my friends had been lying to me for weeks and had a bit of a surprise in store....

So some background info to this story. My best friend Alanna has spent the last 12 months living in Calcutta, India. 12 whole months. Obviously I missed her like crazy. Now she had told me her flight home was on the 6th of Feb, the day after my birthday. I had accepted this, she was coming to my party so I wasn't too bummed.


I hear Rachel and Imogen (who remember I had been hanging out with all afternoon) arrive at my house, and all of a sudden I'm told to stay away from the windows, apparently they had a big present and I wasn't allowed to see it yet. So then obliviously I wander downstairs to find this at my door...


Obviously, what with my squealing and crying reaction, I had no clue this was about to happen, so I have come to the conclusion my friends are extremely good liars. It really was the best gift!

Ignore my tired face, I got about 3 hours sleep that night!

Now to catch up on some sleep, plan for my party on Saturday, and spend some time with my friends! 21 is going to be a great year!

21 Years Young...

That's right kids, today (or tomorrow depending where you are) is my 21st Birthday!
It's kind of bizarre saying I am 21 now, I still can't really wrap my head around the whole in my twenties thing. Although in my friend circle I am one of the babies of the bunch, so I guess I should be used to 21 by now.

This last year has been non-stop 21st celebrations, which has been fantastic, bringing everybody back together after sometimes years apart. As today is a Tuesday,  unfortunately I will be home alone most of the day :( but tonight I am having a sleepover with a few close friends, going old school with sleeping on the floor, eating pizza and watching movies. 

But come Saturday it's party time!
I am having a whole bunch of people who have had an influence on my last 21 years come together and help me celebrate! There will be pink punch, a castle cake, cute candles, and lots of music and laughter. I cannot wait!

I have a feeling 21 is going to be my best year yet!
