Happy Tuesday! As many of you know, I am a huge awards show junkie. I love them! Because really, what’s not to love? This past Sunday’s Golden Globes did not disappoint. Fashion, celebrities, sometimes drunk celebrities (yes I am thinking of you Emma Thompson), and good jokes (Tina Fey’s joke about Leonardo DiCaprio? Perfection). By far my favorite part was the fashion. My friend came over, we split a bottle of wine and gossiped about everyone’s looks for the evening.
At first glance, our favorite Hogwart’s attendee Emma Waston’s dress looked great. At that point we only saw it from the waist up and we thought it was a good color and she looked fabulous.
Later on we saw a picture of the dress – whoa! It wasn’t really a dress at all, more of a top with a long skirt in the front – or maybe just half a dress? Anyways, we loved it! I think it was so fun and daring. I would love to see this trend stay around for a while.
What did you all think of Emma’s Dior gown? Do you think it’s a trend that will stay?
We both love to read!
Reading can be the perfect thing to do before you fall asleep at night, or the most amazing Sunday afternoon activity.
We are both currently re-reading the Harry Potter series, as we are both huge Harry Potter fans. It has been really fun to re-read and rediscover the series. Its fun to find and discuss all the new links we’ve found and all the details we might have missed or forgotten since we were reading them as kids, as well as revisit some of the major differences between the books and movies.
Ashley is currently in a book club with one of our close friends and it has been a great way for them to read different styles of books and to keep each other motivated and on track with their reading. We thought it would be a fun idea to do with each other and anyone elsewho wants to join in!

So grab a book and a friend and spend some time away from a screen (as I type and you read via a screen). Its really nice to read for yourself, rather than school or work. It can be a free vacation and great for relaxation if you let it. Revisit old books like we are and keep fining new favorites!
Let us know what your reading!
