Ok so let me say I know I complained… Well not really complained, more stated that the Oscars were airing too late but last night’s award show was GREAT!! I’ve always thought Ellen was hilarious but she went above and beyond last night and kept the energy levels up for both us, the viewers, and the celebrities in the audience! That ordering pizza piece was too funny!
When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.
If you didn’t know who Lupita Nyong’o was before last night, the amount of attention she received from her Best Supporting Actress win should have definitely woke you up from your hibernation. I could not be more happier for a complete celebrity stranger than I am for her! Whenever a woman, in particular any woman of color, can put her heart and soul into whatever she is trying to do and prove that she deserves to win – I’m instantly a fan and want to do whatever I can to support her.
HER NAILS IN THIS PIC ARE TO DIE FOR!!!!!
Now to the matter at hand… ManiMonday!!! Today’s manicure is inspired by a recent Anthropologie catalog that I received in the mail. FYI: Three brands that I adore: Marc Jacobs (I recently fell in love with the Genius Gel Super Charged Foundation), Kate Spade and ANTHROPOLOGIE!!! Anthropologie is one of those stores that I would work in if they promised to pay me in clothes. The pieces this Spring are inspired by Morocco. From prints, to bold colors, every piece tells a story and based on the brand’s blog – they searched for a location that helped them stir feelings of wanderlust, curiosity and a deep need to learn its secret story – somehow they managed to transcribe the same feelings into the clothing.
As I turned the pages of the look book, I found a section called “Passage to Blue”. This photos were all taken in Blue City of CHEFCHAOUEN – “Its labyrinth walls imbued with magic.”
This instantly reminded me of a color purchased a couple of weeks ago that I never used – “Aruba Blue” by essie – a frosty sapphire blue. Honestly I purchased this color as I was searching for the cobalt blue that I ultimately found by Nails, Inc. and was still a little hesitant to use it this week as I’m not big on shiny, iridescent colors but as I started painting my nails – I fell in love.
I just remembered that I have a birthday celebration coming up with Anthropologie on March 12 – 4 days before my own birthday and the perfect excuse to indulge in this new collection – can’t wait!!
What colors are you wearing today?? Any one ever been to Morocco?????
