I’m sure most of you watched and enjoyed Ellen DeGeneres host the 86th Academy Awards last night (love her!) and for the few of you who missed the annual ceremony, here is a recap of my fave looks and proud moment of the evening.
I had to save the best for last…my fave look of the night, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o in Prada. Congratulations Lupita for winning Best Supporting Actress!!! This is well deserved. She was A-M-A-ZING in 12 Years A Slave. #proudmoment
Lupita said it best: No matter where you’re from your dreams are valid.

Which is your fave look?
I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s day and that your day was filled with lots of joy, love and great memories.
For me, well this happened…
I enjoyed my lasagna from Johnny Farina’s restaurant for lunch. I was treated to some yummy Valentine goodies and treats (Thank you KatieCakeBake@gmail.com) and had some great quality time with loved ones.
We also celebrated my mom’s birthday (officially today) with a wonderful dinner and movie.
For me, V-day is all about spreading the love to those you care about and sharing it with those who need it most.
Happy Love Month!

4⃣Celebrate LOVE this month by spreading lots of it! 💗💓💕💞💘💖
What better way to accessorize than with a scarf, especially in this cold weather. The blanket scarf is a must this winter. They can add texture, color, and they keep you warm.
I personally love the tartan plaid blanket scarf from Zara in beige (pic below) and also in black (pic below). Although it is no longer available, you can find a similar one from Madewell at SHOPBOB here or a striped version from Topshop here or a bold plum and grey tartan blanket scarf from TheProvidenceStory on Etsy here.
