Born Mermaids

Dining Room Dreams

My new PINK dining room (It's a little brighter and deeper in person)! I'm so excited for this room...we have no dining furniture yet (I put a small white table in there so it wouldn't be so sad! Those leave are going too...) but here are a few things I am dying to get!

Awesome pink chairs!

A gorgeous black chandelier! There's a black one in there now, but it's far from this dramatic!

The huge white mirror that's in behind this table...and some pink flowers as well! We could probably use some of the shelving too.

This beautiful white table...mmm, I love the glossiness of it!

Yeah, so I guess I'll keep dreaming for a bit, and slowly, piece by piece, grow the perfect room! It's been so much fun choosing things for our new house and I'm so excited because it's starting to look like a "real" home! Now all I have to do is get my new puppy to figure out that the bathroom is outside!!! Ugh, I've definitely had to clean up a few messes, but it's impossible to be mad at something so adorable!
I hope everyone's having a super fun day! XOX

Golden Globe Fashion

As usual, the Red Carpet of the Golden Globes was packed with stunning beauties and incredible fashions. I love to see what the girls wear and how they choose to accessorize and do their hair.
I like to watch Fashion Police the next day because then you get to see the people who interview the celebs and compliment their choices turn around and bash them. Nice.

Sandra Bullock in Bottega Venetta. I don't love the fabric- it looks like the curtains we just got from Ikea. Plus, the sheer bottom's a little weird. The color is gorgeous on her, but I think she could have chose a more flattering, form-fitting style. With that body, why not!? I did like her hair though- easy and chic!

I liked Drew Barrymore in Atelier Versace, but I could have done without that hip pouf. Either that or lose the clutch and use that thing to carry your stuff- a red carpet fanny pack! I wish the color had been a little brighter and her hair a teeny bit looser, but overall, pretty.

One of my faves...Emily Blunt in Dolce & Gabbana. I love the ruffles of pink chiffon. It's so romantic and she looks very comfortable at the same time. The hair was just okay- but it could have been the rain that flattened it out on top!

Fergie in Elie Saab. Meh. Just okay. Its pretty, but a little boring. Her hair is a little much. She did bring a hot date though!

Cameron Diaz in Alexander McQueen. I love the dress, but the hair and makeup!? Love her, but theis is definitely not her best...

Chloe Sevigny in Valentino. A little too much ruffle for me- and I do love lots of ruffle. I think I would have liked it better if she matched it with some BIG hair. But she never does big hair- maybe next time! Also, not a huge fan of the color.

Nicole Kidman in Nina Ricci. She just can't stay away from the nudes...and while I don't hate the dress, I think it could have been a lot better. My one problem were her nipples, trying hard to escape! Yikes!

Marion Cottilard in Dior- One of my faves! She is stunning and the whole look is perfect!

Love the color of Diane Kruger's Christian Lacroix gown. The top is a little weird- too much going on there. It would have been a lot better with no sleeves- or maybe just one. I usually love her style, but tonight was just okay.

Toni Collette in Elie Saab. This dress was so much more stunning on TV. It sparkled so beautifully. DEFINITELY one of my faves! Her hair and makeup were perfect and she just looked STUNNING!

Glenn Close in Oscar de la Renta. Such a glamorous, sophisticated, fun and age-appropriate gown. Love it!

There was something weird about the hem of Kristen Bell's Jasmine di Milo dress. It's awkward and cheap looking. From the waist up, she's such a cutie, but the rest was a mess!

Julia Roberts in vintage YSL. She's gorgeous, but come on, this is sooo boring! You can wear anything in the world, and you choose this?! I bet she wears fancier things to the grocery store. Boo.

Anna Kendrick was super cute in her Marchesa dress, although I though the print was a bit old. Her skin and hair were flawless! I wish it had a little more color, but that's just me and my color obsession!

Maggie Gyllenhaal in Rouland Mouret. The dress would have been so much better if her hair and makeup up were a bit more relaxed. Ok, a LOT more relaxed.

Zoe Saldana in Louis Vuitton. I LOVE the color on her, and LOVE the dress! There's a lot going on, but this is a fun event! She's just so gorgeous to begin with that anything would look good on her.

Felicity Huffman in Jenny Packham- she looked SO good! The sparkle framed her face so well and her rockin' bod didn't hurt either! This is one pale dress that I though was PERFECT!

Sofia Vergara in Carolina Hererra- I LOVE this color on her- the back is also amazing (big orgami-like bow with more of the cranberry color).

Lea Michele in Oscar de la Renta. Awesome gown. Good hair too.

Olivia Wilde in Gucci. This girl just doesn't know how to look bad. LOVE!

Good color, bad dress. This isn't prom, people. Lauren Graham's hair just didn't go with it either. Too bad.

Heather Graham in Elie Saab. One word- stunning!

Christina Hendricks in Christian Siriano (yup, the guy that won Project Runway). He made this dress for her. I like it but, again, the color could have been better. It blends into her a bit too much. She is gorgeous though.

Alright, that's all for now! Seriously, what would I give to be able to dress up like this for just one night....SO FUN!
Which ones are your faves/worst dressed!?

My new (super-snuggly!) puppy, ROWLEY!!! I'm SO excited- she really is the cutest thing I've ever seen! She's a boxer- possibly a mix, but the vet's not sure yet. She was rescued and in need of a good home- how could I refuse!? I'm trying to be a good mommy, but I've never had a puppy and there's so much to learn! If anyone has any training tips, I'd love to hear them! I hope everyone has a super fun and relaxing weekend! XOX

Giuseppe Zanotti Quickie

Some of my faves! Even better than candy...

Shades of Purple

I picked up a cute pair of dark purple Ray-Ban's the other day- slightly 80's and very fun!

In other news, the puppy search is going slowly...I keep just missing them! I know the right one will show up soon, but it's just so sad to see the others go! Hope everyone's staying warm- I don't know what's wrong with the weather but I'm hoping there's an equally weird heatwave coming next! :P

Speaking of Urban Decay

OMG, I'm sooo excited about this! Urban Decay is coming out with a special Book of Shadows on the 15th, and it's for...Alice in Wonderland! I can't wait to see the movie, and now I can't wait to see this palette in real life! Haha, just when I told myself I didn't need anymore makeup...
All the shadows are named after things in the book (like White Rabbit and Mad Hatter!) and I'm sure it'll be amazing!

Sisters Recommend...

I got the Urban Decay Sustainable Palette a few weeks before Chrismas and liked it so much that I had to get one for my sis! (So sad we live so far away and can't share anymore!) We are both ALL over the amazing colors- all shimmery, but some more so than others. They are so smooth and the pigmentation in amazing! Also super blendable. We both highly recommend it, with four thumbs up!


We are trying to adopt a puppy and I'm SOOO excited! The BF promised that we'd start looking after Christmas when our house would be set up and ready for a new little friend! Here are two that we will find out about in a few days! Aren't they just heartbreaking?!?!
