Nomnomnom Salsa!

Happy Tasty Tuesday!! I could eat my weight in salsa. It's my FAVORITE! I love mine with lots of cilantro, lime and a little extra kick! Since I'm currently living with my in-laws until we move into our new house next month, I'm taking full advantage of her abundance of awesome kitchen tools such as the food processor. (I will promptly be purchasing one for our new home. My husand has been warned.) This is such an easy and delish recipe.

SAG Awards Faves

Finally, a little pizazz! We saw bold, fun and let's make a statement looks at the SAG Awards last night. Rose Byrne took a risk here and looked fantastically cool in this embellished white Ellie Saab jumpsuit!  A stand out and not something we see a lot during awards season. I am loving it! She wins best dressed! That Anna Wintour inspired hair is also seriously working for me.
Yes, a thousand times yes! Emma Stone has been topping all of my awards season best dressed lists this year. How fun and sweet was this girlie, flirty tea length ball gown silhouette by Alexander McQueen?! That clutch – die!! It’s also Alexander McQueen.

Regina King looks so sweet in this lilac ruffled Alberta Ferreti gown. It's fresh and flattering. She's so gorge.


Not seeing anything new from Michelle Williams here with this red Valintino column dress, but I still really love it. The geometric neckline with the beautiful lace and asymmetrical hem adds that little extra. What were some of your favorite looks from last night?

Weekend Maxi

This weekend was filled with family time, relaxing afternoons, my fave maxi skirt and sunshine! M and I also toasted to our soon to be new house! We sold ours back in November and will be closing on our new home next month! Woot!

Fave Find: Vintage Handbag

I picked up this amazing vintage handbag ($15!!!) from one of my favorite stores in the city, Vintage Socialite.  I've found a number of unique and fun treasures in there. No doubt, The Mad Men series on AMC (which I admit I haven't become a loyal viewer of - don't judge me) has brought the hot vintage look of the 60's to the forefront of today's fashions. I shall love and embrace it!

Hummus Fail


Let me just begin by saying my husband and I are huge fans of hummus. We eat it.a.lot.  So I thought instead of paying $4 a pop, let’s make our own, save a few pennies and make it even healthier. I should’ve taken Jack Donaghy’s advice and not followed a hippie to a second location or second post in this case.
“It was an epic bomb.” That’s a direct quote from my husband.

Sunshine and Polka Dots

After a dreary and drizzle filled weekend, it was wonderful to see the sun shining! We're experiencing bizarro weather, nothing new here in Little Rock, and I took full advantage of not having to wear winter gear or a trash bag over my outfit today. So, I felt inspired to bust out this polka dot skirt on this warmish January afternoon!

Grey and Green

A misty and grey weekend resulted in not much happening in the let's venture outside department, but when I did I got a chance to bust out my new Wellies.

Golden Globes, The Bad Hair Day and Eh, Dress Show

I'll be honest, there were a lot of hot tranny messes, beige blahs and serious snooze alerts on the red carpet at the Golden Globes this year. There were a few okay moments, but nothing to write home about, but maybe to blog about.
Alright, aside from the sex hair, I think Reese looked great in this Zac Posen dress. It's a great color and fit, and a sweetheart neckline is always flattering for small busted ladies.

My new girl crush, Rooney Mara definitely pulls off this edgy black Nina Ricci gown. Her make-up is great, but what is the dizell with the gym ponytail?? Lose it! She's so gorge, but let's do something with that hair, lady!
Claire Danes should just walk down the red carpet backwards in this J. Mendel dress.  The front wasn't turrible, but it was a bit boring and her little nips aren't doing it any favors. Can we get a couple of pasties?

Argenta Saturday

It was so gorge this weekend (almost 60 degrees in mid-January) that Michael and I decided to take a little stroll in Argenta with the pups and take a few fun blog party pics.

Best Dressed At The People's Choice Awards

What can I say, I'm a sucker for any and all award shows. My favorite part, of course, is seeing what all of my favorite celebs are wearing.  At the 2012 People's Choice Awards, how hard did Ginnifer Goodwin rock this amazing vibrant pink Roksanda Illincic dress! This was my absolute favorite look of the night. I not only LOVE the color, but the entire silhouette. Those sleeves are amazeballs and she totally pulls it off. I am also a huge fan of hers in general.
I also thought Miley Cyrus looked refreshingly chic in this David Koma number.

Emma Stone in Gucci proves you don't have to wear a dress to look fabulous at an award show. I love everything about this ensemble, the cropped kelley green structured tuxedo jacket, the black pants with the snaps at the bottom and peep toe pumps. Very fun and cool, much like Emma herself.
What were your favorite looks from the People's Choice Awards?

Homemade Granola

Since going outside feels like getting punched in the face right now, I thought I'd stay in and make this delish granola. This blog provided the inspo and I followed this recipe. It has the perfect combo of crunchy sweetness and will be great for breakfast and/or a snack.

Thursday Thought



Say hello to my furry child, Cullen. He came into our lives last year and we haven't been the same since. I've become THAT person. Oh, and yes, I'm also THAT person who named her dog after a fictional teenage vampire family. What?

Hello

Happy 2012!! Last year brought many great things including a new addition to the fam - our yorkie, Cullen. Michael and I are looking forward to this new year which we hope will be full of adventure and achievement! More on that later. In the meantime, we resolve to run the Little Rock Half Marathon, eat our veggies and enjoy our many blessings in life. Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday!
