Now THIS I can cover!

I am not one for award shows.  I guess I just don’t care enough about movies and tv shows to watch what wins and what doesn’t.  But when it comes to the Tony Awards…well…it’s sort of like my Super Bowl! So let’s talk a bit about what I saw last night!

 

Host Neil Patrick Harris looked amaaaaazing!  He always does though, doesn’t he?  You almost forget from his character on How I Met Your Mother that he is actually a really cool and down to earth guy…and he can sing! And since this is a style site, I will mention that his hair always looks great ;)

 

Oh, hello Sheryl Crow! What was she doing at the Tony’s?  Well apparently she just finished writing music for her very first Broadway show called “Diner”.  She presented an award and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised.  She looked GREAT! Her hair was beautiful.  The color and style were very flattering on her. Her makeup was done to perfection in my eyes.  She wasn’t over done…it was like just enough! She was never one of my favorite musicians, but I can appreciate someone who looks so great and knows how to dress and look for her age!  Prop to you Ms Crow!

 

She bangs, she bangs!!  Yes, that is Ricky Martin! Normally I wouldn’t say this, but I am kind of digging his facial hair.  My guess is he grew it out for his role as Che in Evita, but I think it kind of works for him.  He impressed me during his performance and I think I found him sexier than ever….but maybe it’s because I just have a thing for guys who do theatre ;)

 

Amanda Seyfried did not impress me.  Why was SHE at the Tony’s?  Well she will be starring along side Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway in the screen version of Les Miserable in the winter. 1-you need to dress a little nicer for the Tony’s.  This is not the MTV Music Awards…this is a prestigious award show! Put on a gown! 2- If she is sporting the ombre.. then maybe she shouldn’t pull her hair back so sleek like. It just looks like she has really bad roots! 3- I’m all for a bold lip, but you have to give the eyes a little bit more…or maybe she is just too pale for me.  I don’t know, but something just isn’t working for me.  Sorry Amanda!  I do however look forward to her performance in the movie!

 

Congrats to all the winners last night!!  Now, someone please go get me tickets to see ‘Newsies’! I need to see more dancing boys!! ;)

A bold fall trend

 

Keyword: fall trend, red lips, luscious lips

Red lips are all the rage for this fall! Whether you go matte, shiny, bright or dark…it’s all about making the lips pop with some crimson. When doing this look, it is always important to line the lips first. There is nothing worse than a bleeding red lip. For a red that works for everyone, try Revlons ColorBurst Lipstick in True Red. Some might say that if you are going for a bold lip, keep the eyes more natural. I don’t necessarily agree with that. I’m a risk taker when it comes to make-up. I say do up the eyes WITH the red lip for a glamourous runway look! I would love to hear what your thoughts are though. Feel free to comment and let us know if you’re a bold lip, or bold eye kind of gal….or both! Happy Fall Everyone!!




Social media tattoos

Keyword: social media, media tattoo, awful tattoo, wordpress

 

There have been several times that I have posted about tattoos on my blog (check out these awesome stylist tattoos!). I am a tattoo fan; I have a few myself and am thinking up my next one.  That’s just it though…I’m actually thinking.  There are so many people out there who don’t think before they put a permanent mark on their body.  It’s scary.

 

Today I bring you social media tattoos! I would assume that most of these people did not think about it before doing it….but I could be wrong!

 

Oh hey, remember MySpace? It was cool for like a month.  Now this guy will have to explain to his kids what it was every time he goes in the pool!

 

Thank you to College Humor for sharing this photo! (check them out for some hilarious posts!) If there was a “like” button, I probably WOULD click it…but for all the wrong reasons!!

 

Now here is a guy who isn’t begging for as much attention as the guy above….or is he? Hmmm…?  Can we just point out how awful the quality of this tattoo is though. It looks like those ones you get in prison.

 

I love my mac, and my iPhone. Not sure I love it enough to put it on my body though.  At first I thought this one was a fake.  Then I noticed that the hair around it was shaved off.  No guy would shave their arm just to put a fake tattoo on.

 

I had to put this one on here because WordPress is the network we use to bring you all these wonderful blogs (including wePrideny, weFashionny, weEatny…and more). I also thought my boss would get a kick out of it.

I have saved the best for last…I hope you are ready……

 

wait for it…….

 

 

BAM!!  Yup…an iGoogle tattoo!! But really I know you are all checking out that manly body!

 

What possesses these people, I will never know.  I am just glad they are here for our entertainment!




She looks good! but she doesn’t look THAT good

Keywords: sofia vergara, no id, ava lounge

(dailynews)

 

Sofia Vergara was denied access to Ava Lounge in Manhattan on Saturday night because she wasn’t able to provide proper photo ID.   The Modern Family star (that I absolutely love!) went to the club to attend a private party for the Broadway musical “Ghost”.   She was denied at the door by the security guard who stood firm on the clubs “no ID, no entry” rule.

 

 

Sofia is beautiful on all levels, but there isn’t a 39 year old walking this earth that looks like she’s under 21 haha.

 

 

It’ didn’t turn out to be a big deal, Sofia reportedly treated the situation with ease and went on her merry way.  So,  thank you, Ava Lounge, for giving me a reason to go on that little Sofia Vergara picture search today,  she’s always a fun celebrity to check up on every now and again.  Always keeping herself beautiful and busy! She has the most amazing skin ever




Edible crazes of the past year

Keywords: food trend, 2011, year in review

 

Twenty-eleven… a year chock full of food trends, some that will probably have a lasting impact – and others that we can certainly do without!  Let’s send 2011 off with a list of 11 of its crazes we’ve seen in the last 365 days:

 

1. Green Juice & Fresh Pressed Juice – a member of the “superfoods” trend.. not only for the health conscious – they’re getting more and more flavorful and attracting the taste buds of foodies as well!

 

2. Gluten Free – for the wheat protein intolerant, the options for this diet are expanding tremendously and you can pretty much find whatever you feel like eating in a GF variety.  Don’t be fooled though – this is no weight loss trick.. just because you cut out the gluten doesn’t mean you’ve cut out fat or sugar!

 

3. Locally Sourced Food – we’re all about going local – sustainability people, sustainability!

 

4. Organic everything – from veggies to meats organic is the buzz!  We’re on the path towards eliminating synthetic fertilizers, artificial pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, growth hormones, feed additives or genetically modified organisms (GMOs) from our diets.

 

5. Revamping School Lunches – we have our sights set on balancing the diets of America’s youth.  Getting these kids on the path towards nutrition!

 

6. Artisan products – specialty foods and stores are big now… no more mass producing of things, we’re going back to  hand-crafted with high-quality ingredients.  You’re taste buds will absolutely hold onto this trend.

 

7. Move Over Cupcakes – Whoopie Pies and Macaroons took the sweetness spotlight this year.  They had a place in every bakery and coffee shop and started appearing in some fancy new flavors too!

 

8. Bite Size Everything – from cake pops and mini sweetie pies to tapas style dining and soirees filled with mini ceramic spoons boasting a single bite of yummy’ness, Tiny was the big thing.

 

9. DIY Canning – or as Nonna calls it “putting up” {like for the winter}.  Whatever you’re calling it canning, preserving, pickling, it made a comeback!

 

10. Apps for the Appetite – OpenTable lets us make a reservation on the go, UrbanSpoon gives us great spots to eat depending on our locale, and GiltCity allows us to dine at some of the hottest spots for a fraction of the cost.  Smart phones are on top of their game when it comes to filling our bellies!

 

11. Eating For A Purpose – Youth? Strength? Sex?  What did you purposely incorporate into your diet this year, just to reap its benefits?  Maybe pomegranate, açai berry, or goji berry… Sweet potatoes were big as a healthy alternative… As was Nutmeg for its aphrodisiac properties for women… even Blueberries shined with their fabulous antioxidants!
