Oscar Dresses

Did anyone else stay up, just to take in all the gorgeous Oscar gowns? I know we shouldn’t be talking about what women wear, but it is pretty difficult to get past some of the stunning pieces of art some of the actresses wore last night. I was so in love with so many of the dresses this year, but I have a top 5.

Seriously, let’s just stop and admire this stunning creation on Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé.

5 Travel Essentials

O.K, so after traveling for a month, and using these items, I am now a converted believer.

I bought a Lesportsac Deluxe Bag. I have never had a purse that was so light, easy to pack if necessary, stuff with so many day essentials, and wash in the bathtub with a sunscreen bottle explodes in the heat! I do now, and I don’t think I will ever go back to another purse again, unless I find something that tops this bag.

Coconut Oil – I put some in a small tub. It stayed in solid form, and I was able to slather it on my face, neck and hands during a 15 hour flight. It was a lifesaver.

I packed 3 of these in my carry on. I know it is weird, but it was really handy when we got stuck in the airport with nothing open, but McDonald’s.


I bought this sweater, as it is Merino wool. I love Merino wool anything, but this sweater was fun and very versatile.
