How was your weekend? Did you get a chance to watch the Oscars and/or attend an Oscars party? Lauren and I hosted a small get together at our apartment with popcorn, cheese and crackers, and this really delicious cheese & bean dip that her friends made. Yum! 

My favorite looks from the red carpet are:

Who were your faves?

Other highlights from the weekend include:

-Finding out I won Keaton Row's latest styling challenge - a bridal styling challenge for a cocktail engagement party and a daytime, dressy-casual bridal shower. Check out my winning looks here on their blog!

Photos by Me

-A 2 hour tour of The Met, featuring highlights of the museum, c/o Vayable. Although I visit the museum several times a year, I usually visit whatever exhibit I'm there for and then I tend to wander to the same areas that I like, so it was nice this time to get some backstory as well as explore new areas (have you ever been under the stairs?? And, as in love with mermaids as I am, this is the first time I spotted the one on the bottom left of the collage!)

-Afternoon tea at Alice's Tea Cup with my sister, and brainstorming business ideas and details...I'm excited for things to come!
-My first attempt at making a Roasted Garlic-Lentil Soup, which I'll do a lengthier post about later. (But it was delicious, and not TOO much work, perhaps because I prepped the ingredients the night before I made it.)

All in all, I had a great weekend! How was yours??

  6. Jennifer Lawrence was breathtaking in dior!!!

  7. As an LA girl, the Oscars are a huge deal to me! I just love them. One of my faves was Stacy Keibler. I can't wait to read your post on how to make this soup because I recently bought a bag of lentils but have no idea how to prepare them and your soup looks delish. Congrats on the win and how cool to be a part of this stylist program. I had not heard of it but I will check it out.

    1. Oh yeah Stacy Keibler, she's stunning!

      Haha - about lentils - I actually tried making them once and they were so gross (I probably didn't cook them properly) that I threw out the rest of the bag! So this time I ended up buying a new bag, and the soup is delicious!

      Yes definitely check out Keaton Row! Tell me what you think! :)
