At the Oscars

Getting ready to rewatch the Oscars. Here in Sweden they showed the show (including the red carpet) from midnight to 6.20 am and it is safe to say I fell asleep around 4-5 am. Before I get in to it too much I must say I was so disappointed in James Franco's job. Anne Hathaway pulled her weight and trying to carry James but it actually seemed like he was high! The only thing I really liked with him was when he came out wearing a dress and a wig, saying: "Just got a text from Charlie Sheen", that was hilarious!!! Sorry James, other than that you sucked! They should have had someone else, like Jake Gyllenhaal or Justin Timberlake, guys that will guarantee laughter along with Anne.

When it comes to the fashion I must say some dresses blew me away while others bored, as S. would say, the bejingles out of me!
These blew me away:
Mila Kunis in this lilac Elie Saab dream looked fabulous! Love it!! Absolute a favorite! I want, I want so bad!
Sweet Hailee looks so pretty in this Marchesa creation, perfect for her young 14 years. I would not mind this dress either :-)
Scarlett Johansson is soo sexy in this dress! Color is wonderful, the lace just right, and the back--WOW! Effortless. This Dolce & Gabbana is perfect for Scarlett. Many say that she should have picked something less lacey and give more attention to her hair and makeup but I think that for a woman her age this is a perfect dress.
Mandy Moore has grown up from her "I want Candy" video. This Monique Lhuillier is adorable with the soft, romantic, and flowing silhouette. I could not find a pic of her blue dress she wore when performing with Zach Levi (which I LOVED!!) but it was a cute dress as well.
And the not so wow list:
Sorry Jennifer Hudson. You have lost weight and have a killer body but this dress and your cleavage is a NO NO NO!!!! Did you not look yourself in the mirror? I mean you may not see it in this picture but her boobs looked awful and even though the color may be the color to wear for the summer I still say NO NO NO to this Versace dress on Jennifer. Next time, cover the babies up or tape them so we don't have an ALMOST nip/boob slip, does not belong at the Academy's.
Kind of a boring dress worn by Amy Adams. Don't really know about the Cartier necklace either but I guess it is to spice this dress up. I would not say it is not a nice dress, just boring. Sorry Amy, you usually look like a fairy tale but in this L'Wren Scott piece you looked like--well, the opposite.
I did not know which list to place Halle Berry but the more I look at this dress the more I feel she could do so much better than this Marchesa dress. The ruffles are a little weird, like letting a child randomly gluing it on the dress. Not so impressive, did not pass.
Why dear Melissa Leo, why?! What is this?? This Marc Bouwer dress is yuck. I really did not like the shoulder pads, popped collar and the straight silhouette. This is one way to show how lace does not look good. No, I do not like, not one bit.
Beautiful Jennifer Lawrence wore Calvin Klein which looks so simple. I know her beauty requires very little but this is the 83 annual Academy Award, this is the time to go all out! Too simple for my taste to be worn at the Oscars.
Lovely Anne Hathaway changed several times while hosting the Awards and she wore some really nice dresses but this Valentino was a tad hmmmm....We have seen Anne wear red so many times before and now it is a bit boring. Red really becomes her but we want to see something else. I, for one, loved the white dress she wore during the ceremony.
One of the major disappointments was gorgeous and mom-to-be Natalie Portman. Nominated for Best Actress I would expect her to wear something extravangant but this dress from Rodarte can be found in almost any shop in town. Not only is the dress oh-so-yawn-I'm-losing-years-just-looking-at-it, she also felt she should match everything in the same color. Shoes, earrings, and makeup are all in the same colorscheme, purple. YAWN! Biggest disappointed :-( You can do soo much better Natalie!
But the price for the Ugliest girl in a dress must be James (Jamie?) Franco. Love however the suit Anne is sporting, very beautiful! Sorry James, you win the category of ugliest dress at the Oscars :-)
I know there are many more lovely dresses as well as boring ones but these are the ones that really stuck out to me. I will now enjoy the recap of the Oscars and see who won what (keeping my eyes off of the papers and news channels).
Until later fashionable readers!

Pretty pretty please!

Love this song and whenever you want to want to boost someone you love play them this song! Pink has done it again :-) Pretty pretty please listen to this song!

"Perfect" by Pink



Until later fucking perfect people!

My anthem

Ok, three's the charm before I give up!!!! I have written this darn entry and every time I want to post this entry my computer starts FU*%#NG with me and deletes everything!!!

Anyways, what I have tried to post is; anthems of my life. Some people have talked about what songs they feel are their anthems, you know songs they hear in their head when walking into a room, the one song that will guarantee to cheer them up, basically the song that represents them. I, being the person I am, had a very hard time choosing ONE song out of ALL the amazing songs that are out there. After much thinking and listening to songs I finally chose two songs I feel are my anthems of the moment! Depending on day, week, month, and year these songs are the anthems of my life :-) Many of you would think, oh come on!!! Of all the songs you choose these?!!! Well, I want to remind you that my songs represent what I feel in this stage of my life. Not only is the music good but the lyrics are typical of what I represent and feel. The songs I have chosen are Katy Perry with "Firework" and Pink with "Raise your glass". These songs will guarantee a dance from me when played WHEREVER!! So, of course I will post them here (if my computer will let me! Dear Dell inspiron 1525, do not fail me now!!!!) so you can enjoy the lovely music.

Pink with "Raise your glass"



and Katy Perry with "Firework"



What song is your anthem? Until later wonderful men and women of the world!

We all need a little laughter

Stumbled upon some jokes from wikipedia...My favorite is the second joke :-) Enjoy!!!

The Jokes:

The winning joke, which was later found to be based on a 1951 Goon show sketch by Spike Milligan,was submitted by Gurpal Gosall of Manchester:

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?". The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?"

The second place finisher and early leader was this joke, submitted by Geoff Anandappa of Blackpool:

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go on a camping trip, and after finishing their dinner they retire for the night, and go to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend. "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see." "I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes" exclaims Watson. "And what do you deduce from that?" Watson ponders for a minute. "Well, astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful, and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe. What does it tell you, Holmes?" "Watson, you idiot!" he exclaims, "Somebody's stolen our tent!"

While this was the top joke in the UK:

A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: "That's the ugliest baby that I've ever seen. Ugh!" The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: "The driver just insulted me!" The man says: "You go right up there and tell him off – go ahead, I'll hold your monkey for you."

Until later darlings
