Oscar Fashion 2011

Anne Hathaway's Wardrobe
& Other Red Carpet Stunners

Although I don't think anyone could steal the spotlight from Anne Hathaway and her big night as a superb choice for co-host of the 83rd Academy Awards with James Franco. Her classic beauty, amazing dresses and hairstyles, made her glow; but her humor and grace are what made her shine.

However, my favorite look of the night was worn by Matthew McConnaugh's lady, Camila Alves...

Other stunners... Reese Witherspoon had the best hairstyle wearing Georgio Armani Prive, Gwyneth was modern chic in Calvin Klein, and Mandy Moore glimmered in Monique Lhuillier.

Did you watch the show?
Who do you think had the best dress?

Lovely weekend in these parts of South Florida! The weather is gorgeous... hope you all are finding hints of spring where you live. Are you ready for the Oscars tonight? I am loving Katy from Sugarlaws newsclip for Hosting an Oscar party... check it out if you haven't seen it.

We had unique shaped strawberries this week, the first one looked like a paw or a fist. Note the thumb and knuckles!

A Little Note

Travel Thursday & Freedom Friday
Fountain in Lucerne, Switzerland

Just a quick little note my friends...
I'm whipped beyond belief with emotion and exhaustion.
Tomorrow is my last day at work for an investment advisory firm,
 before I leap into new ventures
with Photography Getaways and beyond.
I'm filled with much emotion,
but just wanted to wish you a Happy Day.
(If you missed my Freedom Friday post about it, you can read it here.)

Stay tuned...
I've got some great posts coming up for you!

Spring Cleaning


I spent my three day weekend doing some spring cleaning and going paperless in my house...
scanning, shredding, and e-filing old college papers, statements, and other old documents. It's so nice to have things simplified!

This way their will be no excuses for productivity!

Happy Tuesday!
