All about Oscars 2011

So yesterday was an Oscars day and since I’m kinda obsessed with movies , i just had to watch it and with Oscars goes red carpet, so that means my 2 favorite things together : Fashion and Movies. :))) So i stayed awake because of the time difference, so they started at midnight my time. But for movies fanatics like me, that was not a problem, are you one of them ? :))) Let’s get just started with the dresses, wuhuuuu ...

I’ll start with my two favorite dresses, because they are amazing and they really nailed it with the whole styling and make-up. I’m just in love <3 ... 
Mila Kunis in dress from Elle Saab.
Odette Yustman in dress from Monique Lhuillier.

So on the red carpet was seen a lot of red, we can say for this Oscars red was the new black. Here are few of them i thought they look great.
Sandra Bullock in Vera Weng, Anne Hathaway in Valentino, Rhea Durham in Naeem Khan.
But also we had some stunning black dresses.
Reese Witherspoon in Armani, Oprah in Zac Posen and Maria Menounos in Johanna Johnson.
The next trio is amazing, they are just glowing love, happiness and couture. They look stunning !
Hilary Swank in Gucci Premiere, Natalie Portman in Rodarte and Camila Alves in Kaufman Franco and Matthew McConaughey in Dolce & Gabbana.
So let’s go on. I think this ladies have timeless looks, they are just ... i don’t know, I just like them :))
Halle Berry in Marchesa, Helen Mirren in Vivienne Westwood and Michele Williams in Chanel.
I love how kids are still kids and they are not trying to look all adult. All of them look so stunning because of that. Each and every one of them are rockin they own style and they do it well. Good job kids ! :))) I’m proud of you :P
Hayden Panettiere in Luca Luca, Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber both in Dolce & Gabbana and Hailee Stainfeld in Marchesa. 
The last dresses i loved was this 2, the only problem is i don’t love who wore them :))) Not a big fan of this 2 actresses, but have to admit love their dresses.
Amy Adams in L'Wren Scott and Cate Blanchett in Givency Couture.
And now the wrong dresses. There was a lot of them, so i picked the ones i thought the ladies that they wore them, they know how to look better but with this one they went all wrong. 
Marisa Tomei in Charles James, Florence Welch in Valentino Couture and Kim Kardashian in J. Mendel. 
Heidi Klum in Julien Macdonald, Jennifer Hudson in Versace and Nicole Kidman in Dior.
So that was all from dressed, i have to say all the guys dressed up really well and i didn’t had any complains about it. Only about this one. Do i have to say anything else ? What was he thinking ? Did his barber took a long vacations ? :)))

Tutorial : How to make your own Brush holder

After a month a finally managed to get time and take my camera to repair shop. So at the end i bought myself a new camera :)) . So yes, now i can finally go back to blogging and posting pictures for you guys. Today i prepared my first tutorial and i am so excited about it. The story behind it is that i had all my brushes stuffed together in a jar and in a while everything started to become really crowded. So i wanted to buy myself a brush holder, but the cute ones from USA weren’t shipped worldwide. I was so sad, so i decided just to make myself my own unique brush holder. And there it is. :))) Isn’t it cute?
Let’s get started, right ...
First things you will be needing :
- a box ( i took one from shoes :) ) 
- decor color sand ( 4x packs - depends how big is the box ) 
- scissors
- black wide tape
- black narrow tape
- a regular tape 
- wrapping paper

Take your box and take the top of the box down and put it a way for now. Take your wrapping paper and lay the box on in. Measure how wide is the box and make a cut lengthways. After your done take the regular tape and tape the wrapping paper on the box. Repeat the progress again if its necessary to go around the box. 

After you are done with wrapping paper around the box. Take your top of the box and the wide black tape. Tape it all around the top, but leave a bit of upper part of the tape, so you will be able to twist it inside of the top of the box. Take the box and put the top of the box under the box. So on the opposite side you would usually put it. :)) Then take the black narrow tape and tape the upper part of the box, just to hide the edge of the box. And it looks nicer. :) Again leave a bit of upper part of the tape, so you will be able to twist it inside the box.

You are almost done. :)) Now take the decor color sand and pour it into the box. I needed for my box four of them. So you will see, how big is your box so just adjust the sand to your box. But don’t fill it till the top, leave a bit of space. After this just fill the box with your brushes and you are done. You have made your own unique brush holder. Isn’t this so exciting. :))

I have one more surprise for you guys. :)) Wuhuuu, so i am proud to say that soon i will have my first giveaway. Not going to tell you what the price will be but everything you will have to do is that you subscribe to this blog and share it or on facebook, twitter or other sites. But more about the giveaway next time. Now i will leave you with your new brush holder and just wish you a good night sleep. 
Take care,
Yours Cherry Blossom
