CELEBRITY DRESS INSPIRATION | Blake Lively + Chanel | Are these looks wedding appropriate + Who wore it better?

Ok, SO it’s approximately 4:30pm EST and, as I sit here eating half a cinnabun from last week (I really need to go shopping), I’m feeling pretty high-spirited, because I’m quite sure I have some really solid evidence that those supposed Blake Lively nakey photos leaked to the internets were not real.  And I’m basing my entire argument upon one specific dress choice… {Continue reading…}

It goes on, as you can imagine…

But, here’s the beauty part:

And, stop right there. That’s it – that’s where I start to tear up.


Find out what prompted all of this and more, over at Bakerella.  If you have feelings, the story will touch your heart like crazy.  I tear up a bit every time I read it.  I have never met these people, and I tear up a bit.  You want to make fun of me?  Go ahead.  I may be ridiculous, but at least I have copious amounts of feelings that cannot be contained.

Happy Thursday, to all.

CELEBRITY ENGAGEMENTS | Carrie Underwood + Mike Fisher… Sooo… That Would Make Her Name Carrie Fisher, Right?

All signs point to yes on this one, ladies and gents…

~ PLUS ~


It has been confirmed that Ottawa Senators center Mike Fisher, 29, proposed to country music superstar Carrie Underwood, 26, this past Sunday, December 20th.  She said yes!  Love it.  My fiancé and I have serious love for Carrie Underwood… different kinds of love, but love for her, all the same.  She’s got quite a voice, and the face to go with it.  I can’t blame him.  ;)

Look at them.  They’re kind of GORGEOUS together, no?
