OSCARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here are my picks for the best dressed at the 2014 Oscars.


"The Cool Kid"



Portia De Rossi in Naeem Khan

Why I love it: The texture! It's fresh and young but the high cut neck keeps it classy and elegant. I loved the big chunky bracelet being the main jewelry piece and going a difference route than flashy diamonds. If i could have changed anything I wish her hair was different. The hairstyle aged the overall look.




"The Dazzler"


Cate Blanchett in Giorgio Armani

Why I love it: In my opinion Cate Blanchett would look gorgeous in anything, but this dress captures her ethereal aurora. The "nude illusion" is fresh and makes the detailing of the garment intriguing rather than overpowering. It takes a confident and beautiful woman to wear this dress and not have the dress wear her. I love how Cate balanced the whole look with her hair down in a soft curl paired with drop earrings.




"Best Baby Bump"



Elsa Pataky in Elie Saab

Why I love it: If you're going to walk the red carpet with a baby bump you better flaunt it! This mom-to-be has nothing hide. Nothing says "I am expecting and proud" like hammock for your belly made out of sequins.




"The Class Act"


Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen

Why I love it: Sandra Bullock is the ultimate girl next door and she kept is classy with a royal blue strapless gown that was flattering to her figure but still looked effortless and comfortable. She toned down the gown with her hair down and swept to one side and added that little touch of hip flare with an ear cuff (haayyy gurl)




"The Dark Horse"


Emma Watson in Vera Wang

Why I love it: This was the actresses first time at the Oscars and she was presenting. I sort of shudder when someone comes in with all the bells and whistles and they are not even nominated. Emma's look wasn't a heavy beaded gown with a train paired with a million dollars worth of diamonds like I would expect from an Oscar first timer. It was edgy, clean and just that touch of glam to make her memorable but not steal the spotlight. The metallic finish kept the look chic, the dark palate added an edge and the clean lines and casual sleeveless top captured the starlets youth. Also, props for the major 'bling ring' stacking. (lolzzzz)




"Best Dressed Couple"



Brad Pitt in Tom Ford and Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab

Why I love it: I was expecting them to come in looking dazzling, but what I love most is how healthy and radiant Angelina looked and Brad's bitch'n haircut. They really do bring out the best in each other.




"Best Dressed Dude"



Michael B Jordan in Givenchy


Why I love it: Men don't have as many options and while I love seeing some white and dark blue jackets on the red carpet nothing beats that classic black tux. Michael B Jordan toned it down with a tie and added just the perfect amount of flare with his shoes and collar. It seemed true to the actors style.




"The Jaw Dropper"



Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace

Why I love it:
When a dress requires a front and back view you know you picked a winner. Kate Hudson is always one of my favorites with her red carpet picks but this one takes the cake. I actually gasped when I saw her. The cape is a hot trend happening on the red carpet but the dress still captured that old Hollywood glam. Kate chose wisely by avoiding a necklace with the plunging neckline. The photos don't do any justice for the beading and detail on this dress so you should google this look because it deserves it.



Also, can I talk about my favorite performance??

The PERFECT t-shirt


I know this post may seem a little boring but if you're like me you've spent a majority of your life looking for the perfect t-shirt. Just a basic black, white or grey t-shirt you can wear that is both flattering but comfortable.

I find myself dealing with various problems when I find a t-shirt I like. The material is either too stiff and scratchy OR it's too soft and falls apart. The cut is either too long to tuck in or too short. It doesn't hang on the body right. It's too tight or too baggy. The list goes on and on and I find myself in a Goldie Locks situation with my shirts, BUT I discovered the most amazing t-shirts.


BEHOLD, THE BEST T-SHIRT YOU WILL EVER BUY






I am an avid follower of Gypsy Warrior and they were having a flash sale on "basics". I purchased the Riley V-Neck shirt in grey and was so in love that I went back and purchased the black one as well. They are $22 and worth every penny.

New Beauty Must Haves for 2014

As a broke girl I have a hard time dishing out money on the newest most in demand beauty products, but when the holiday season started creeping up I realized it was time to invest in some new goodies.

I am overly swamped with my normal Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm day job, styling on the side PLUS starting the newest venture of Broke Girl Style, which will launch this spring on top of running the house and trying to still get my work outs in 5-6 days a week. I always feel tired and I am always worried I look how I feel, so to not look terribly zombied out in all the holiday photos I spent some extra money finding some new products I really love.

Here are my must have beauty products for 2014:

I tried A LOT of different eye creams to try and cure the smile lines around my eyes and stop new ones from forming. Most of the products I was trying were $60-$100 (ouch) AND they burnt the delicate area and did jack sh*t. I was really pleased when one day (literally just for the hell of it) I decided to try out Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair eye cream. Um, IN LOVE. I already notice the fine lines disappearing. I picked this up in late November and use it morning and night. The bottle isn't even half way empty. It's super light weight, does not burn or cause redness of the skin AND it goes on amazingly well under and under eye concealer.


You can buy this at Target for about $18

This brings me to my second must have item, Neutrogena Healthy Skin 3-in-1 concealer for eyes. This is what I have been looking for for almost 2 years!!!! Say good bye to those dark circles ladies. This concealer not only gets rid of those dark circles, but it has SPF (to prevent sun ray damage to your sensitive under eye skin) and it isn't cakey! No weird make up lines, cakey look or heavy feeling under your eyes.


Retails at Target for about $9, BUY YOUR NEW DREAM GLAM SQUAD IN A BOTTLE HERE.


So I don't like putting a bunch of weird crap on my skin before I go to bed. I find most night moisturizers clog my pores and cause me to have lil weird white heads in the AM or don't provide enough moister. I decided to try a more natural route for this. Doing my research I kept coming across multiple people suggesting Apricot oil. I had heard of grape seed oil and of course vitamin e oil/lotion, but was intrigued by the apricot oil. I found a bottle at Whole Foods and decided to give it a go. I love how light weight it is, how little amount you need (I use about a nickle sized drop) and how it doesn't make my sensitive skin break out. I wake up with baby soft skin every morning. I have yet to break out from it (three months and counting) and I am still using the same first bottle I bought.


You can buy online at The Vitamin Shoppe for about $5.


Until about a month ago I had never found a hairspray that I absolutely LOVED. Most didn't provide enough hold or too much hold. MOST of them make my hair sticky and crunchy. They smelt like bug spray or too much like a fruit basket. I have long hair that isn't exactly thick, but isn't exactly thin. I usually do loose curls with it and style it about three times a week. My hair takes direction well, but very rarely do I need maxim hold for a crazy up-do. I craved a hairspray that gave me light hold for the loose curl look but didn't have my hair going limp in an hour. I decided to venture to Sephora for this one and I am 100% glad I did. I got the 3 oz travel size (in case it didn't work out) and so far I have had it for over a month and still have half the bottle left. The smell is very soft and subtle. I use it one of two ways. If I want a more intense hold I spray my hair with it after blow drying, then brush out and style and follow up with one last all over spray. This holds my locks all day with out going limp and without my hair feeling sticky while giving it natural movement. Otherwise if I want more of those beach waves I simple spray after styling. I will definitely be buying the large bottle once my travel size runs out.


Retails at Sephora for $15 for the 3 oz size
