Fit For A Queen

I stumbled across this gorgeous bathroom with a walk in closet/powder room. I can only dream of a grand room such as this.

Isn’t the tiling of the mirrors exquisite?

Loving the walls, it accents beautifully. Don’t you just want to dive right in?

In a perfect world I would ponder about my attire for the day on that seat.

I thought this brought everything together nicely. I highly enjoy feathers, makes everything seem magical in a way. The room itself is just flawless. From the angles of the walls, to the shapes being carried throughout the room is perfect. Simply breath taking. When I came across this I just had to share it with you!

Thank You Martin Luther King Jr.

TODAY IS FOR YOU

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.

Where would the world be today without this man? Would we still be in the dark, still as prejudice as we were then? He lost his life fighting for equal rights. All of his hard work, struggles, and words payed off. If only he were still here among us today to see the progress made, all because of him.

Remember: It only takes one person, just one, to stand up and make a difference.

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.

The Golden Globes: My Favorites.

One of my most adored parts of watching any award show is critiquing the celebrity fashion choices. Everyone does it, “Oh, how elegant, how stunning,” or sometimes a big flashing “WTF?!” crosses our mind. I can tell you that as soon as Helena Boham Carter came on display that thought was the first thing to cross my mind. What was she thinking? Even though there were quite of few fashion disasters, few made my top picks.These were my favorite pieces from the night.

The one shoulder has recently become more and more popular. I personally love single shoulder dresses. They add just the right amount of elegant and class to any outfit. These three women pulled off their gowns marvelously. Amy Adam sported a luxurious navy blue gown by Marchesa. Amber Riley strutted her stuff in a dazzling pink sequined gown by Oliver Tolentino. The cut and shape of the dress was perfect for her figure. The wonderful Megan Fox had on lookers jaws dropping as she waltzed down the carpet in a baby pink gown by Armani Privé.

There is just something about a long-sleeved dress that draws my attention. It exemplifies class and sophistication, and even though almost every part of your body is covered head to toe it screams sexy. Angelina Jolie was applauded for breaking out of her goth black norm to a beautiful emerald green gown by Versace. It took me a bit to warm up to Ann Hathaway’s dress by Armani Privé. The big gold sequins and the padded shoulders shook me up, it was not until I noticed that the back was completely cut out to fall in love with the gown. I have always love backless dresses, and that was just enough to sway my decision from throwing her attire into the worst dress column.

I thought Scarlett Johansson pulled off the lingerie inspired gown by Elie Saab. The peach, wing-sleeved dress was a lovely switch from Scarlett’s usual bombshell, curve hugging dresses. It was good to see her in a sweet, flowing gown. Simple dresses can be just as eye catching as extravagant gowns. Clair Danes simple cut dress by Calvin Klein caught attention with the neon pink color. Sarah Hyland wowed others in a vintage gown by Max Azria Atelier.

It was love at first sight. I fell head over heels for Olivia Wilde ball gown by Marchesa. Everything about the sequined gown was stunning. The chocolate color complemented her skin tone wondrously. This gown screamed perfection and she wins my best dressed award, hands down.
