Emmy Wins and Misses

Here are my top 5 favorite dressed celebs from the Emmys... and then there are my 5 fails below!

Lea Michele looks fab in black. I love her necklace and the ruffles.

Maria Menunos looked stunning!

Jayma Mays navy flared strapless dress was gorgeous.

Sofia Vergara would look hot in a trash bag but this golden gown is beautiful.

Nina Dobrev of the Vampire Diaries looks radiant!

These celebs need to fire their stylists immediate if not sooner!

Stephanie Pratt looks glowing but why is she wearing a shirt as a dress?

I love Lauren Graham but this bunchy dress looks like drapes or a napkin tucked into her gown.

January Jones and these cones do not work.

Kristin Wiig's dress is odd and her hair looks like "Something About Mary."

Ty Burrell's wife looks like she needs to be picked from the garden.


Blackberry Love

I had a really great weekend and the highlight of it was getting a new phone. I got the new Blackberry Bold on Verizon and I am so loving it!

hello, pretty new phone!
p.s. do you love my gaudy Chanel background ;)

I had some friends in from out of town also so that was also exciting. 

I know it's only Sunday night, technically Monday, but I am so looking forward to this week. 

My little sister is moving up to college on Wednesday and I am so excited for her!

Obviously she decided early on she was going to UofM.


Then I am going to Florida on Thursday for Labor day weekend!

Have a great week everyone!

You'll Never Blue Ball in this Town Again

I am reading this hysterical book by Heather McDonald called "You'll Never Blue Ball in this Town Again." It is about her being a 27 year old virgin and how she acted like a slut but never put out. It is basically hilarious and an easy read. She is usually on Chelsea Lately and her book is equally funny to one of Chelsea Handler's best sellers. I have read the first quarter of it so far and I laugh myself to sleep. She talks about her adventures being in a sorority and dating older guys and working for her parents. And if you need another reason to check it out the Kardashians recommend it and everyone takes their opinion seriously, right? haha! I do!

Keratin Hair Straightening Treatment

Hi everyone!

I got my hair chemically straightened today with a Keratin treatment! It's very straight now and it is supposed to stay that way after it gets wet! My hair is like the devil so I am not crossing my fingers that it will dry stick straight (in fact, i'd just about be the happiest girl in the world if that actually happened) but I will keep a keratin diary and let you know how well I think this treatment works in case anyone else is considering it. It was a bit pricey... cough $300...but if your hair is anything like mine than you know that anything is worth a try!

I also got a manicure! polish is O.P.I. Royal Rajah Ruby. Ring is David Yurman.

And the cherry on top of this day was the free pedicure I got. 
Yes, free! 
You know you're a good customer when..!

I know I usually do Forever 21 favorites but since I was in CHiCAGO last week I decided to change it to Friday Favorites this week. I want to show you all what I got from Chi-town.

MARC by MARC JACOBS STORE made my weekend complete!

hello my friend in wicker park...

So what did I buy? What didn't I buy is a better question...
