SAG Award Beauties!

This is my favorite picture of all the gowns from the SAG Awards!
Heather Morris (from Glee) chose a Romona Keveza blush silk chiffon strapless gown with rosette bodice and a Swarovski clutch.

The 24-year-old Lea Michele chose an Oscar de la Renta blush crepe de chine caviar bead embroidered gown, Sergio Rossi shoes, Tiffany jewels, and a Daniel Swarovski bag.

 Julia Stiles also looks lovely! 

Natalie is wearing Azzaro’s “Jungle” gown and $2 million worth of Tiffany & Co. jewelry!

I love my new Moleskine that I received in the mail yesterday! I have these notebooks for Seattle and Prague. I love how I can plan ahead and make lots of lists. The maps are helpful for learning different neighborhoods and I can de-stress by calculating the distance between potential jobs and apartments!

I highly recommend any of the Moleskine notebooks, especially if planning for a vacation, or a big move!

Looking for a Chicago neighborhood to live in.....

Do you live in Chicago? Do you have a favorite neighborhood in Chicago? We are in the process of looking for a rental in Lincoln Park, the Loop, Wrigleyville, Old Town...

I may have an interview in Park Ridge though, so this could be a problem. Any suggestions?

Ski inspiration

I do not need new skis, but these sunflower skis are fantastic!

My Weekend Re-cap

The pressure is starting to accumulate so I spent most of the weekend applying for jobs in Chicago.  I hope I hear back soon, so I can stop stressing so much. 
We also brought cupcakes to a dinner party on Saturday.

There were several roast birds and delicious polenta.

I love playing with Finn too!

It's my birthday...what should I wear?

I've been interested in using Rent the Runway for sometime, especially with our upcoming trip to Cabo and move to Chicago. I'm thinking of doing a trial run for my birthday before Valentine's. What do you think of the following dresses?

I'd like to wear this one to a fancy restaurant in Cabo, or maybe to a show in Chicago!

My husband hates this one but I think it's super cute!

I really, really want an excuse to wear the Heartbreaker dress by Hervé Léger.

We both like this pretty blue V-neck dress by Hervé Léger!

What are your favorite dresses from Rent the Runway?

6 more weeks until Cabo San Lucas

Everyone else is posting about the Golden Globes, so I will too!

Here are my favorite pictures from last night's 2011 Golden Globes!
Artie (Kevin McHale) was rocking a polka dot jacket, apparently Dolce & Gabbana! 

Rachel (Lea Michele) was pretty in pink! I thought the ruffles were a little big but still sweet. The turquoise ring is a cute touch. 
The 24-year-old Glee star strutted down the red carpet in a salmon silk faille one shoulder gown with cascading ruffle detail from Oscar de la RentaChristian Louboutin shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Judith Leiber bag.

This was my favorite emerald hued dress from the red carpet. Mila Kunis looked very glamourous. 
The 27-year-old Black Swan actress wore a Vera Wang dress, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, Judith Leiber clutch and Yves Saint Laurent shoes.

Check out Ryan Gosling's adoable smirk when his name is announced as a nominee! Click on the photo to see the short clip.
