I Want Spring Now!

I don't know about you all but I cannot wait for Winter to be over! We recently had a small snowstorm here where I live and it made me officially want Spring to be here. There was not a lot of snow but it was enough for me to OVER it. It was regular snow mixed with rain which made it very heavy to shovel. I couldn't even go home the night of the snowstorm due to the heavy snowfall and slipper roads, so I had to stay over at Shawn's place. The next day there was slushy snow everywhere! Puddles, slush, falling snow, etc. you name it, we had it! It made me wish I had rain boots but I don't any boots that are waterproof at all unfortunately.

I am on the hunt for a nice pair of black boots that I can wear to work. I need something that I can wear to work and be appropriate to wear with a skirt. And if it can be waterproof, even better! I know Blondo makes really nice boots but they are way too expensive for me. I will be writing another blog post as this is a separate issue on its own.

I even painted my nails a nice pastel blue to make me think happy Spring thoughts! Don't mind my cuticles, I just painted them and didn't get a chance to clean off the edges!

Oscars 2013 Best Dressed and Worst Dressed

I am a huge awards show person! Mostly for the fashion but I do enjoy watching the awards show itself. This year I have only watched two of the nine films that were nominated for Best Picture. I watched Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook. During Les Miserables, I was crying for a good majority of the movie. That scene where Anne Hathaway was singing "I Dreamed a Dream", I couldn't even look at the movie screen or I would ball my eyes out uncontrollably. I was staring at the theatre wall and I was still tearing up. Silver Lining Playbook was Oscar worthy but they ending was not. It was had a very predictable ending. I was expecting Bradley Cooper to take off his shift sometime during the film but it never happened!

So now onto the fashion!!

Best Dressed

Stacey Keibler dress is amazing!
I love the metallic detailing!
Amanda Seyfried. I love her. That is all!
Jennifer Lawrence was amazing
the entire show! Her dress is a little
too stiff for my taste but I still love it!
Reese Witherspoon! I love everything
 about her outfit, especially her
 hair! It makes me wish I had blonde hair!

Worst Dressed

I love Halle Berry
but this dress made her look like a statue.
Anne Hathaway is mainly in the 
worst dressed category because of 
the high neckline and the fact
 that you can see through her
 dress. I thought the darting was 
just making her nipples pointy
 but it was in fact her nipples
 showing through. The back of the
 dress was amazing  though!
Helen Hunt wore a dress
designed by H&M.
I like how she is trying to be thrifty
but the material is all wrong!

Trying Something New

I went to my local Walmart today to find a new bottle of purple shampoo for my ombre hair. I finished my bottle of the John Freida Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Tone Correcting Shampoo and it costs me around $10 for the bottle. I wanted to try something new and inexpensive as compared to the previous shampoo that I have used. I came across a brand called Light Blue Shade. The unique shape of the bottle intrigued me at first and then it was the price. It was around $7 a bottle and came with almost twice the amount of product as compared to the John Freida shampoo. I have not used the product yet but I have looked up reviews for this product. Apparently the colour of this shampoo is a lot darker than normal purple shampoos in the market. People suggest mixing it with another regular shampoo and using it only once a week. I only use a tone correcting shampoo once a week so that is not a problem for me. I will give a more in-depth review once I have used this Light Blue Shade Shampoo.
