And the Oscar goes to...


If I could pick, Lady Gaga should of walked home with something. She blew.me.away. with her rendition of Julie Andrew's Sound of Music. It's the first time in a long time where she was fully dressed and people were less distracted with how she looked and more focused on her beautiful voice. 

Well done gaga. Well done. 

My top picks for the night are as follows:

Gwen. She looked pretty. Perfect for the part if you would. 

Reese. She's worn a black and white dress before, I think she looks classy, although this isn't my favorite dress/look for her.

Jennifer Hudson sparkles in yellow. Maybe I'm just biased to yellow I don't know but she rocked it!

J Lo. Gorgeous. I think all the photographs of her in her dress don't even do her justice. When I saw her on TV she glowed. So pretty. 

David Oyelowo must of been the "thing" for colored suites last night! I thought all the men who wore them looked dapper!

Eddie R. 

Most unrecognizable Faith and Tim. Woah holy hair chop for Faith and Tim looks real skinny!

Rosemund Pike. She looked ravishing in red! 

Who was on your best and worst list?

Fifty Shades say what?

I made it to the theater today to see the highly talked about Fifty Shades of Grey.


 If you recall, I read the books and blogged about it back in 2012 here I've also blogged about it here, here, here, & here

I've read opinions all over the place about this film how it being released at Valentines would send the wrong message and blah blah and how the whole submissive is borderline domestic violence and or abuse etc etc....

I walked into the theater expecting to feel really awkward watching this film especially during what I was expecting were some really intense sexual scenes. 

I am happy to report no awkwardness was felt, and those intense sexual scenes didn't really happen. I thought everything they showed was very tasteful and I've seen worse. They really didn't even show much. A few tie ups with a tie, or ropes and a blindfuold which truth be told couples in relationships today who aren't dominatrix do this type of stuff and aren't submissives/dominace people. How often have we seen movies where one person handcuffs the other to the bed? It's not something new that's for sure. 

Raunchy? Nope. The only thing that felt weird was hearing/seeing Jamie Dornan say "laters baby." I thought it was a tad cheesy but hey it's a big part of the book in the dialogue between Ana and Christian. 

Anyone else go out and see it? 

I thought it gave all us fans of the book a well deserved brought to life to the big screen. 

I was skeptical about Dakota Johnson and she ROCKED it as Ana.

Sweet Treats

I decided to be a good neighbor and make these goodies for 3 of our friendly nice neighbors for Valentines day! 
What you'll need:

Silicone Heart mold. I found this particular one via amazon. I also own another one that I've shown or mentioned on blogger before but I use it for my crayon baking only! 

M & Ms

Valentine colored Sprinkles.

White Chocolate to melt.

Mason jars.

So while I was waiting for the chocolate to melt in the pan on the stove, I got my heart mold ready first. 

Once the chocolate was melted, you have to pour it quickly in the mold and then place in the fridge to cool down. 

The first hearts on the left were my first batch and didn't turn out so great. I learned that I didn't put nearly enough M&Ms and sprinkles to get them to lay on top of the chocolate enough. 

DUMP Way more than I am showing in this picture!

Since I only had one silicone mold, it was taking forever to make the treats. I had to wait 25 min for them to cool before I could make the next batch which meant I had to turn off the stove each time. Super annoying. Note to self always have 2 molds ready to go! 

So while I was waiting I busted out my glue gun and got to working on my favorite part, the decorating of the jars! 

Here's my second batch of treats this is how they were suppose to turn out the first time!

The larger mason jars I filled with Angel food cake, cut organic strawberries, and little dab of cool whip on the top!

Grammys Recap!

Met up with a girlfriend to watch the grammys last night at her house and I was so happy that this was the first show in such a long time that really felt like it was all about the music! Packed with great performances!

Gotta start with my girl Madonna.
Love her. I know she's a pusher she always has been. Her performance was nothing shy of her style that's for sure!
Where do you think Lady Gaga gets her ideas from?

Here's Madonna's performance from last night. It's one of the few songs on her new album that doesn't have inapropriate words

The Paul Rihanna Kanye performance.

This was such a weird match up. Rihanna has such a great voice, but I felt like I couldn't hear Paul at all!!!

And Sia. I have been such a fan of hers since she was apart of the group called Zero 7. (their hit song was called Destiny you can hear it in the film Blue Crush)

Did you know Sia wrote Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani's new song/duet My heart is open? Tis true!  I was so impressed. Their voices blend so well together! 

And can we talk about how Pharrell's shoes pretty much trump his goofy hat from last year?! lol Bling Bling! 

I thought this little lady looked so glam! Stunning color! I was sad she didn't win anything this year.


Some things I didn't like....The Artist formerly known as Prince and his really awkwardness and rudeness towards Beck when he won. I didn't like his little thrown in black lives still matter comment. 


I didn't think all these artists really needed to throw in the I can't breathe thing. What's done is done.

What were your favorite likes or dislikes from the show last night!?
