Oscars 2012

Published February 28, 2012 by laurrx

i haven’t watched the Oscars yet, it’s still sitting unwatched in my sky+ planner. but i have had a good few looks at twitpics and on the look magazine website at outifts and hair styles etc.

i was planning on watching it until i watched Gossip Girl instead – was that the last of the season last night? it was beyond amazing.

Brangelina what are you all about?
i cannot stand Angelina Jolie (Team Aniston all the way) so this made me dislike her even more. why is she so pale?? and being that pale and wearing black just makes your ghostliness more white!!! her outfit actually BORES me. black dress, black shoes, no jewellery, no bright clutch… and her hair! i would not be paying that hair stylist – that’s if she did pay someone!!! it looks all back combed and teased and tuggy! i was quite disappointed in this look because, although i don’t like her, i think she can look like an absolute babe sometimes. and Brad…whats with the hair?! he looks like a homeless person. But i enjoy the suit. Any man in a suit is sexy, but he needed to fix his hair!

Jen grow your hair back out!
i really, really love Michelle Williams and have since Dawson’s Creek when she played cute “girl-next-door” Jen. this dress is absolutely stunning, the colour is really gorgeous but i don’t like the detail on the bottom half of the dress, it’s a bit much. her hair is gorgeous…but i really want her to grow her hair! i like long frill/skirt at the waist, it really helps give her shape, as she is quite up and down with no curves. i like the minimal accesories, they help the frill/skirt stand out and she doesnt look too OTT. the small pink clutch is really sweet and i genuinely JUST noticed it there! what’s with the paleness though? was that an oscars trend? i don’t get it…

Maya is a babe!
i think Maya Rudolph is an absolutely stunning woman! this dress is gorgeous and really shows off her figure, the colour really, really suits her skin tone. my favourite part of the dress is the silver detail around the waist, the gorgeous belt helps to show of Maya’s lovely figure. I could imagine the dress without the shoulder detail but not the waist bit. i really love her hair, the colour, the style, the length etc, i think its really nice, and her make up is really understated but it’s gorgeous.

i’ve actually noticed that, looking through all the red carpet pictures from the glitzy and glam event, the make up was far from glitzy. it was nude colours and red lips all round. 

Meryl is a GOD!
The “Best Actress in A Leading Role”  Oscar winner looks so happy in this picture! when i see this i couldn’t help but smile. Meryl Streep is definitely up top in my favourite actress list! she looked amazing at the Oscars! her dress was a lovely colour and complemented her shape. it was age appropriate (because there is nothing more unattractive than an older woman wearing clothes that reveal far too much). i dont mean age appropriate to defend her but you know what i mean. i really thought her hair was lovely, it was so simple, but elegant. she had nothing round her neck, but the neckline was quite plunging, so wearing no necklace worked, to help show off the neckline. However she was drop down earrings like big bulbs, and they looked gorgeous on.

another thing i noticed was the use of minimal accesories – small amounts of  jewellery and small clutch bag. the detail and “wow” factors were all in the dresses! 

So, looking at all these pictures has made me want to actually watch the oscars! So i predict another blog about them at some point in the near future!


Festive period is over. Sad face.

i am a big child, it’s so sad thinking Christmas and New Year are over.

I really enjoyed winter, and i am NOT one for loving winter with the awful, awful weather we have in Scotland. The winds were terrible and it is CONSTANTLY miserable. my friends and family and me definitely made the most of the season and ignored the weather.

i really hope everyone had a great christmas and a fab new year. i hope resolutions were made and presents were given and smiles were smiled and kisses were reciprocated.

i couldn’t feel festive. my mind just wasn’t in a Christmassy state of mind, i was watching loads of Christmas movies and doing Christmas things and still couldn’t. i watched a video for Christmas nails by Kandee Johnson and loved, loved, loved them.
http://www.kandeej.com/2011/12/4-cute-christmas-nail-polish-designs.html i done these and it made me feel that OUNCE of Christmassy…

we also went ice skating at george square. in glasgow george square at christmas is such a big deal.

they have a huge fandango about putting the christmas lights up and the ice rink. we havent been ice skating in george square for 3 years so this was a fun idea and it actually was a good laugh, although it rained. i recommend doing this if visiting Glasgow at Christmas time. it’s a must. george square is very nice at christmas, the lights have been the same for as long as i can remember. but even that wasn’t making me feel fully festive. even after the drinks we got…

we also went to the garage on christmas eve eve. i can’t exactly say alot about the night as i can’t actually remember it. but the garage is actually a pretty decent club. more so on a thursday. we went on the Friday and it was a good night…i think.its always a fun night to get everyone out for birthdays and christmas nights out. i did waste my christmas eve though by being a huge hungover mess.

on Christmas eve my my mum, dad, sister and i always go to movies and have been doing so since i could sit in the movies for more than an hour. (my mum, dad and me tried to list all movies we had been to see. the worst was “The Family Stone” worse ever. Or “Little Fockers” now that movie was a let down). so we went to mcdonalds, where i inhaled my food and debated with myself wether i would keep it down…then to the cinema. Always the showcase in Linwood. We went to see New Years Eve. I absolutely loved it! It’s like Love Actually, Valentines Day and He’s Just Not That Into You (which i am now rummaging about in my cupboard looking for as i wish to watch it). It’s got a number of famous people including Abigail Breslin (who isnt the cute girl from Little Miss Sunshine – currently changing my rummaging to look for this move), Katherine Heigl (making her way to my favourite actress list), Zac Efron (he is buff now! no more sissy Troy Bolton) and Lea Michele (BOOO! least favourite). It was such an amazing movie and definitely pulled a heart string. i wont ruin it for anyone who hasnt seen it, but the story line with Halle Berry’s character was a right tear jerker! the story was so real…i know things that happen in that movie happen all the time. But i have never seen this happen in movies before (or movies i have seen). after the cinema on the way home i suggested we play Monopoly (all of a sudden i have a huge love for monopoly – although my iphone always beats me!). my dad truly beat me…

although at one point he had to give up his bank card to pay his rent! Ha!

so Christmas morning we got up and exchanged all our gifts. here are my favourites.

my main gift from my parents was a promise to buy me a T in The Park ticket. I genuinely need a full blog post to explain and talk about this and maybe share what i have for the weekend and what i’ll be taking with me – i’ll save this for nearer the time.

THE URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE. when linda asked me what i wanted for Christmas i had a think about it and chose this baby. it is now my favourite ever make up possession. i will never do my make up without using at least one of these eye shadows! i love the colours, i love the packaging, i love the brush that comes with and i love the fact that it comes with a small primer potion! i am so lucky to have one of these.

I Christmas Day and Boxing Day with family. On Christmas Day we got the Just Dance on (Left and Right Pictures). It was hilarious. Then Boxing Day with my Dad’s side of the family. It was such a laugh, we made lethal cocktails and played chase the ace with the big cards my mum has! i love Christmas for family time. WarmFuzzies!
for new year i had a party. everyone was pretty gone and it was such an amazing night. i have never spent new year with my friends before so it was a special one. i even made two of them cry with a small, very non important speech with was along the lines of  “this year hasn’t been the best, i know we had 21sts and holidays, but there was downs and i’m happy we have each other…” and they started bubbling. Then Melo literally couldn’t stop. “Laura you’ve opened the gates”.
The picture above is not of New Year. It’s us having a pyjama party and eating the party food that was meant to be eaten at New Year, i was just too overwhelmed and drunk to do it then. Aren’t my bright pink pyjamas awesome? they have owls on them!!
the last couple of days before i need to go back to work consist of this. Pyjamas, made in Chelsea and lounging. it has been GREAT! i am such a slob sometimes its awful! although today was pretty productive and tomorrow and saturday will be too.
Today me and a couple of friends went window shopping, and to starbucks and people watched, then went back to Stacy’s house for dinner and a slob sesh. We also made some 2012 plans to be skinny and reem and go on holiday! it’s set to be looking like a fine fine fine year to be honest.
Tomorrow i’m going shopping for a 2012 diary and then lunch with Linda, then later my cousins are coming over for a sleepover party!
Then saturday (siiiiighhhh) me and the girls are going to the panto! i hate the panto, but i think this should be a fun time.
2012 might mean the world will end, so i feel we should make the most of it. i want to make plans and stick to them, make resolutions and stick to them, make decisions and stick to them. and also i want to drive. i dont want to die in the apocalypse with a green provisional!
hugs and kisses
and smiley faces for 2012.
