1. Right now I'm starting to attempt getting my blog up and running at a regular pace. It's proving difficult, but I am determined.

2. I'm looking forward to Kai's birthday. I know its still 3 months away, but I can't help it! My baby boy is going to be TWO!! So exciting.

3. I constantly have music on in our house, and recently listening to Hozier has been my current addiction supplemented with The Voice season 7 contestants Taylor John Williams & Matt McAndrew. I've added a music player to the top of the blog page with some music from all three artists... Feel free to check it out!

4. Snapping? I'm confused by this prompt... maybe they are referring to Snapchat? to which the only things I really snap are videos of my kid and weird randoms to my hubby. <3

5. I've been making tons of different soups and such in my new Dutch oven! man oh man am I in love! i plan on sharing a few recipes soon!

5 year old billed for Bday party no-show

Scrolling through Facebook last night and all of the sudden
 this article pops up all over my news feed with a headline to catch anyone's attention:
via here

 So this little boy Alex, RSVP's to a birthday party with every intention or attending, and then something comes up last minute (spending time with his grandparents) and his parents can't find the birthday invite to inform the party host. Since it's just a 5 years old's birthday party & not a business meeting his parents figured they would just apologize to the host parent when they saw them at the school in the next few days. When that didn't happen it didn't seem to be a moment of distress, so no further action was taken.

So when Alex's dad Mr. Nash found a random brown envelope in Alex's backpack after school one day, he thought it a bit strange. Opening up the envelope revealed an invoice from the birthday party, saying Alex owed £15.95 as a "no show fee."


Are you kidding me?

Read the whole article here.

This parent, thought it appropriate to send an invoice to the school for them to pass along to the child? An invoice? 

For those of you that are not sure, £15.95 translates to $24.04.

You sent an INVOICE.
To a child.

For a little over $20.00 ??

That is ridiculous!

  I've read a few different articles on the matter and a few points must be brought to attention.

First of all, yes.. they did RSVP. BUT this is the chance you take when throwing a child's party! There will people who make it, and people who don't. I throw many parties on a regular basis, but never would I CHARGE my friends if they didn't show! 

And if you really feel like they owe you some help covering the cost there are SO many waaaaaaay better ways to get someones attention!

What she did was rude, & in my opinion not handled very classy.

You eat the cost, and move on with your life!
And you sure a shit don't ruin your kids life over $20 damn dollars! 


What do you think? 
Was the mother out of line? 
Or is this exactly the kind of brazen honesty the world needs?

Golden Globes 2015

Okay, I don't know about you but I love awards shows.

First off, you can NOT go wrong with Tina Fey & Amy Poehler hosting. They have announced that this was their last year hosting and if that turns out to be true I am going to be so sad! On top of being absolutely hilarious, they leave NO subject untouched. This year was no different when they closed out with quips at the Bill Cosby scandal...

  Whats an award show without a Cumberbatch Photobomb?


Though I'm not going to lie, 
Margaret Cho's character made me really uncomfortable.

Well now that we have covered all of that, lets move on to what everyone actually tunes in to these awards shows for: The FASHION.

There was a obvious theme, BOLD BASICS!

From beautiful blues

to ravishing reds

 elegant yellows

"It doesn't bite!" -Naomi Watts on her stunning serpent necklace

graceful blacks

exquisite whites

(*All "color dresses" pictures above via here*)
 I mean seriously! Some of those gowns are amazing!

 The men were not to be left out:

"No, you just get drunk at this event" -Kevin Spacey  
when asked if there is food served at the Globes

"The gloves are just my own" -Amal Clooney on her gorgeous white gloves

Not all the style choices were as well thought out...
A few weren't that far off, maybe only missing the mark by slight:

Then some more than others, 
falling more into the failed prom or bridesmaid dress category:

But when you recover from those bad choices, you are brought back to focus with these captivating choices:

(*All good, bad, & fantastic dress pictures above via here*)

And don't you dare try to say something negative about The fanTABULOUS Conchita Wurst:


Because, the hair? the shoes? the dress??
 You KNOW that outfit is fierce!

And Who doesn't love Emma Stone for being perfectly fine rocking a pair or pants & a hot top. This girl, is my idol!


My TOP favorites left stars in our eyes with their stunning choices:

"It's a little snug" -Kate Hudson on her skin-tight sexy dress

(*Top fav dress pictures above via here*)

But my TOP favorite look was from this beautiful couple,
Benedict Cumberbatch & his newly pregnant wife Sophie Hunter!

  I am SO in love with everything about this!

But the one choice that was on EVERYONE'S mind:

The timeless wonder who looks age in the face, 
& doesn't even need to waste a laugh...
 Jennifer Lopez


Seriously. That woman never ages, & she's still breathtaking.

Even other celebrities are not immune to her sexuality

I loved everything so much! The bad, the good, what the hell was that? I just can't get enough of these shows! 

The Oscars are right around the corner, I wonder what fantastic fashion atrocities we will be introduced to then??

I can't wait!

What was your favorite? Which looks did you hate? Tell me in the comments!
