Did you see last night’s Academy Awards? I had to wait for the updates and videos online and get snippets on social media because we don’t have cable, but I absolutely adore Oscar fashion dress (all those starving stars in gorgeous luxury outfits!) Ellen’s Twitter account also made me laugh since she encourages selfies, which are like this (the most retweeted tweets ever) because celebrities are just like us . And awesome Ellen delivered pizza .

Instead of working over the weekend, I made the decision to become a total couch potato and catch up on my entertainment. We watched Gravity, which was enjoyable but left me with strange dreams of floating through space, as well as 12 Years a Slave, which left me in tears the entire time. I’m happy Lupita Nyong’o won Best Supporting Actress—her acceptance speech was so lovely—and that it also thoroughly deserved Best Picture (says the girl who has seen 2 of the 10 nominated films).

Although I thought Chiwetel Ejiofor’s performance in the movie was outstanding, I’m glad Matthew McConaughey won for Best Actor as well. I’ve been a fan of him ever since he played Jake Brigance in A Time to Kill 18 years ago, and I also really enjoyed his moving victory speech.

Fashion and interior design are inextricably linked, and the Oscars represent the pinnacle of splendor with their amazing attention to detail. This year, there were a ton of light-colored gowns, some of which had sequins or sparkle added. These were my favorite examples of a neutral sparkling combination in fashion and interior design.

Best Actress: Kate Hudson in Attelier Versace, Kristin Chenoweth in Cavalli, and Cate in Armani Prive.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum wore Reem Acra, Portia de Rossi wore Naeem Kahn, and Meryl wore Lanvin.
These certainly fit the bold category and were highly glitzy.

Olga Kurylenko wore Suzy Amis-Cameron, Charlize Theron wore Dior Haute Couture, and Sandra Bullock wore Alexander McQueen.

But I believe Lupita Nyong’o in her light blue Prada, which had small crystals adorning the flowing pleated skirt, deserves to take home the Best Dressed lady award award.

See a lot more of the here red carpet attire up close.

I finished watching House of Cards on Netflix late on Saturday night; tell me you also watch this program! Francis Underwood is played by Kevin Spacey perfectly, and it is wonderful. His initials on his cufflinks shouldn’t be disregarded, am I right?

Season 2 is halfway through, and I can’t stop watching. I like that Netflix distributes the full season at once because I can sit and watch a show without interruptions until the very final episode, at which point I can turn it off and go back to being my usual, unable to sit still self.

Here is a look back at the most popular blogs and projects from January and February, when I wasn’t quite as lazy, since I did nothing constructive all weekend.
