& three is a party

On my first week off in a whole real while, my best friend came to stay at my house.  My nanny family was vacationing in the Dominican Republic and I was ready to have a staycation.  I went upstate to visit my family for a day and then Olive came back with me which felt so good cause it was like bringing a piece of my hometown back to my home.

We slept in, we drank excessive amounts of coffee, we watched Yummy Mummys (terrible but entertaining tv) and the Umbrella Academy (good tv) and also I used my prized possession, my blender and made margaritas and we got drunk in my living room.  Being young and extra as we are we got dressed up and put on heels and we danced our very uncoordinated hearts out in my living room to salsa that blared from the google home.  It was delicious innocent fun.  For a moment there we even flirted with the idea of leaving the house but that is not really our style (mi novio, Olive and I have hermit tendencies and we had everything we needed in the house anyway).

It was so much fun and I even danced even though I can not dance and know so very well.  I was the perfect level of drunk and I felt good the next morning.  When I get drunk I get hyper and then I get sleepy so after we stopped dancing we started watching Yummy Mummies again and I left to change out of my itchy Fashion Nova evening gown into PJ’s and just accidentally stripped down to my underwear and fell asleep in my bed leaving Olivia and mi novio to Yummy Mummies lol.  Anyways here are three photos from that night that I love and adore.  And I hope you have a three-person party soon.  It’s fun, it’s cheap, it’s safe, it’s easy and you can play whatever damn music you’d like.  10/10 would recommend

 

 

very late oscars best dressed

These are my Oscars best dressed (in no particular order cause making decisions are hard and it is 1:41 AM).  The best part of the Oscars to me is the fashion and thinking of all the people it took to make that one person look that good.  The Oscar’s are sometimes inspiring and sometimes sickening cause I can’t stop thinking about all the people who have so so much less than these people (including my lovely self who is sipping her cup of noodles as she rights this).  But anyways here are some very beautiful people in very beautiful dresses. And I hope we all get raises this week!

Amandla Stenberg

I love a 20’s look and she looks like such a goddess.

Gemma Chan

I love it cause it’s elegant and fun and dramatic all at the same time.  Also, I really appreciate how minimal they kept the hair and makeup.

Chrissy Teigen

I think this is a really pretty color in her and I love how elegant and sexy this dress is.  I’m really obsessed with it and how it looks like she’s wearing a glamorous scarf but she doesn’t actually do have to deal with wearing it and positioning it right.  Perfection.

Emily Ratajkowski

Ruffles were really big this Oscars.  I love how sexy this dress is and I love a good fit and flare, though I would have made it a different color.

Emilia Clarke

I am so obsessed with this dress.  It is lavender and sparkly and those are two of my favorite things in this world. I want it.

Laura Harrier

This is one of my favorite colors and the jewelry on this dress is so intricated and delightful.  This is such a princess dress and I love.  I would have worn a different necklace though.

This is giving me bad ass Carmen Sandiago on a date vibes so obviously I’m a fan.

I love this dress. Again this was a big Oscars for ruffles.  Love the gold accenting and the strategic ruffling.

fashion favorites at the Golden Globes

I didn’t watch it cause I have no cable and no patience (these things go for hours I’m told) and I spend my hours being a jello brain on the bachelor thank you very much.

Lady Gaga: I’ve always been obsessed with periwinkle and I love how princessy it is while still be edgy and I love how wholeheartedly she committed to the color.

Lilli Reinhart: She matched her makeup to her dress! Also I love a red dress and this is such a gorgeous and fierce look.

Gemma Chan: This color is so rich and gorgeous and I don’t think people wear it enough.  She looks so lovely and the ruching is so perfect and flattering.

Kristin Cavallari: If it’s intricate, form-fitting and has gold sparkles it will probably be on my best-dressed list.  I love how glowing and godessy this look is.

Sarah Hyland: This is an after party look but I just think this color suits her so well and this dress is so money and so luxurious. And I like how she accessorized.

Christmas Eats

It’s a tradition in my family to make tamales every Christmas Eve but since it’s so time-consuming sometimes we don’t. This year we did (and by we I mean my dad did) but we started a bit late it didn’t end up being ready for dinner.  This is what usually happens.  So usually you have to fend for your self for Christmas Eve dinner and look in the fridge and see what you can whip up.  This year I made avocado toast.  When the tamales were finally ready on Christmas Day they were everything I dreamed they’d be and more and well worth the wait.
