#ootd Winter Ball 2015

Last night was our winter semi formal and after a long week of being snowed in with slow wifi and jersey shore marathons, it was actually nice to trade in my sweatpants for a new dress. We braved the cold and the snow (in heels) and had a pretty great night. We need more excuses to dress up!

(What I wore: dress - Forever21 shoes - DSW nails - Essie)

Keep an eye out for my January favorites tomorrow!

SNOW DAY (surviving the blizzard of 2015)

We have been stuck in the middle of this blizzard since yesterday and our classes were just cancelled for tomorrow so we figured we're kind of snow day experts right now. Here's our tips to beat snow day boredom and keep yourself from going too stir crazy!

This really goes without saying but netflix is too important to keep off this list. Some recommendations from us are: Gossip Girl, Friends, any Disney classic or a bad Lifetime movie. (We would be doing this IF WE HAD WORKING WIFI but dvds work just as well I guess).

We for whatever reason decided to be productive members of society this morning and cleaned our room (including vacuuming). Now it just looks really nice and it made us feel less like lazy assholes who have not moved from our beds since.

Play in the snow!
Before the storm got too crazy last night, a group of us threw on a ton of layers and played in the snow like a bunch of 7 year olds. It was really fun and generally just a great excuse to get out of our dorm rooms for a while. *Bonus points if you can get a huge group of people together for an epic snowball fight at an ungodly hour.

Stay safe out there and if you live on campus enjoy your shovel-free day!

Golden Globes Fashion Hits and Misses

Award season is my favorite season and last night I was live tweeting and taking notes on all my favorite fashion at the Golden Globes. Here's my best and worst dressed of the night as well as my favorite and least favorite trends!

My best dressed of the night was Gina Rodriguez in Badgley Mischka. I love that she went for a simple look with the perfect amount of detail at the bottom of the skirt. I also love that she won!! It was definitely a surprise, but well deserved. And her speech was one of my favorite of the night! It might have made me cry...

Some of my other favorites of the night:

Kate Beckinsale in Ellie Saab

Emma Stone in Lanvin

Greer Grammer (Miss Golden Globe) in Lorena Sarbu

Claire Danes in Valentino.... W H Y????

Some other misses of the night:
Keira Knightley in Chanel 

Ruth Wilson in Prada 

My favorite trend of the night was embellishments - to a degree (I'm looking at you Claire Danes) and white!

Some trends that I did not understand were belts and Amal Clooney's gloves - I know I'm not allowed to say anything bad about Amal but those gloves didn't do it for me! Her dress was stunning but the gloves ruined it, maybe if they wear tighter and didn't fit her like the yellow gloves I use to do dishes? I don't know but I don't think they deserve the praise they're getting.

What were some of your favorite looks of the night? Who do you think should fire their stylists? Let me know in the comments! 
For now I will leave you with Chrissy Teigen's interesting cry face


Grant Gustin Appreciation Post

Happy Monday!
Winter break is almost over for me and I know most of you are probably starting second semester this week so I wanted to make a post that would make your Monday a little better, and what better way to do that than with a #mcm? This month our cutie is a superhero with the voice of an angel - Grant Gustin!

You can see Grant in The Flash - Tuesday nights at 8 on theCW!
P.S this is too good and I'm upset:

New Smoothie Recipe!

After tons of stress eating and snaking during the last few weeks of the semester, I felt that it was important to go back to healthy eating over break. So with that in mind, I started experimenting with new smoothie recipes and I wanted to share my new favorite one with you!

((I left my magic bullet at school so unlike these recipes, this one is a bigger serving size because I used a normal blender))


2 handfuls of frozen mixed berries
1.5 handfuls of frozen strawberries
1 granny smith apple (peal the skin off and cut it into a few pieces)
1 banana
Peach yogurt
Orange juice (I free-pour so I don't know exactly how much to use oops)

 Mix everything in a blender and enjoy! :)

Have a great weekend!!
