Golden Globes 2014- Best Dressed.

The Golden Globes Sunday were fabulous.  I  LOVE Tina Fey & Amy Poehler and they did great! Last night  there was not a shortage of beautifully dressed women, but of course there were a few women in gowns that made you wondered if their stylist hates them. Here are my thoughts on who hit a home run. 


This is my favorite red-carpet look I have ever seen on  Sofia Vergara. Sofia while always beautiful, tends to go for sparkly mermaid gowns time after time and this sleek Zac Posen black ball gown was a refreshing surprise. 

At her first Golden Globes, Lupita Nyong'o made quite the impression in a red, caped Ralph Lauren Dress. Ladies ,that is how you wear a cape. 


Tatiana Maslany was robbed of the Golden Globe but she looked beautiful in this Jenny Packham gown. I feel the gown is part grecian, part twenties glamour and complete elegance. 


Olivia Wilde showed her bump off proudly  in this emerald Gucci Premiere gown and she sizzled as one hot mama to be.


Monica Potter, (who in my opinion Should have won for Best Supporting Actress TV Drama), shined in this gold and black Romona Keveza gown.

And Now What?

In college I felt competent. I have faced issues with insecurity & lack of self-esteem throughout my life. I have always identified as an outsider, one who struggles to belong or fit-in. I belonged in college. Growing up, if I went to college was never in question. I used to joke that I had Senioritis since Kindergarten, but I genuinely remember anticipating that time of life from the time I knew about the existence of College. There were moments, throughout my college years, where I would be walking to class and this feeling would wash over me “ This is my life, I’m in college, I made It”. It sounds corny but it always made me smile. I dreaded certain classes & at times was a master of procrastination but now I look back with such a feeling of nostalgia. Some might say that it is a bit ridiculous to be nostalgic for something that only ended a year and a half ago. But I am. When I posted a status on Facebook recently about missing college, someone commented saying I should go back. I immediately rolled my eyes when I read that comment. While it is a logical comment, it would not fix my predicament. Though I loved the classes and learning that I could get by going to Graduate School, what I am truly missing is that time of my life. A time that is finished. It is a lightning in a bottle experience that I am nostalgic for, It cannot be duplicated or re-experienced. It is over. I am particularly nostalgic for that time because I have not found the answer to What’s Next? I feel stagnant. I want to have an amazing life but I don’t know how. I have become a fearful person. I am scared to make mistakes. I am scared to live life and for it to plain suck. But what am I doing? Nothing. How stupid is that?! Very. But I don’t know where I belong now. I went through life going to school anticipating college and now it is over. I belonged in College. And it was great. And now what?

The Vampire Diaries

So I've been working as an extra. I don't have a regular job & have been trying to find something to do while I try not to put pressure on myself to figure life after college out ASAP. (it's almost been a year, so clearly it ain't ASAP). I live outside of Atlanta, so there is a lot of film & television projects happening here. One of the shows that films here is The Vampire Diaries. Last night one of the episodes I'd worked aired & you can see me really well! I even made it onto tumblr haha!
