January 2017 is here, and Awards Season is in full swing! Last week, it was all princess vibes at the 2017 Golden Globes, with both Lily Collins and Lola Kirke wearing pretty, soft pink gowns on the red carpet. This week, it's People's Choice Awards time!
The 43rd People's Choice Awards, which honored the best in popular culture for 2016, was held this past Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. The awards show was so much fun to watch, and of course the red carpet was full of fabulous looks!
While there were so many celebrities in pretty dresses on the 2017 People's Choice Awards red carpet, our eye was on one celeb: Jodie Sweetin. If you don't recognize the name, you'll certainly recognize the character she place on TV. Jodie plays Stephanie Tanner on the sitcoms Full House and Fuller House! Of course, everyone loves Full House. Netflix has brought it back in such style with the new TV show Fuller House, and everyone has fallen in love with Stephanie and DJ Tanner all over again.
While we love watching Jodie on Fuller House, we couldn't believe how sweet (pun intended) she looked on the People's Choice Awards red carpet! Partly because she always looks so stunning, and partly because she was wearing one of our favorite dress designers: Sherri Hill! Continue reading
With a new year means that it's time for Awards Season! Yesterday, Sunday January 8, 2017 marked the HFPA's 74th Golden Globe Awards ceremony, and the night was so much fun, from the red carpet to the awards show. The ceremony honored the best in film and television from 2016 and took place at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. This year, Jimmy Fallon hosted, and awards were given out for all types of movies and shows, from "La La Land" to "The Crown." Meryl Streep even received a lifetime achievement award!
But, that's enough on the actual event. It's time to get to the good stuff: the red carpet, of course! With prom season just around the corner, the Golden Globes red carpet is a prime place for prom dress ideas, and the 2017 Golden Globes certainly didn't disappoint.
While there were so many prom perfect trends on the red carpet, from plunging necklines to sparkly sequins, there were two celebrities that absolutely blew us away with their dresses. Those two celebrities were Lily Collins and Lola Kirke! They both gave off absolute princess vibes in their pink ball gowns, and we couldn't be more obsessed. See what they wore below and how you can rock their looks for prom.

The year 2016 was all about balance, with Pantone naming two colors as the Color of the Year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. Now, with 2017 upon us, it's time for a brand new Color of the Year. This year is all about new beginnings, with Pantone announcing Greenery as the 2017 Color of the Year.
PANTONE 15-0343 #Greenery is the PANTONE #coloroftheyear2017 selection ?? A fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew, #Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose amid a complex social and political landscape.
In the announcement, Pantone explained that Greenery (PANTONE 15-0343) is a yellow-green shade, "that evokes the first days of spring when nature's greens revive, restore and renew." The hope is that it reminds consumers to, "take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate." With a contentious election that just ended a few weeks ago, and a new president taking office in January, this is certainly an important message to remember and take to heart. Continue reading

If you love rocking makeup, getting that perfect eye makeup look is super important, whether you're going shopping or having a night out on the town. But, if you're not a makeup connoisseur, applying eyeshadow perfectly can be tricky. So, to make it a little easier, we've compiled a few eyeshadow applying guides that we're obsessing over.
The first comes from Good Housekeeping Magazine. They recently created a Complete Guide to Where to Put Your Eye Makeup, which includes a detailed photo of where eyeshadow should be placed in various areas around your eye, and instructions for each section. The main areas they break down are:
- Browbone/highlight: Add a matte or shimmery pale eyeshadow here to make your eyes pop.
- Lid: This is typically where your main shade goes.
- Crease: Applying a darker eyeshadow here adds dimension.
- Outer V: The outermost corner of your eye where deeper shades are usually applied.
- Upper Lashline: Where your eyelashes begin on your upper lid. You can define your eye in various ways here.
- Waterline: The inner rim of the eye, usually where either darker eyeliner is applied for a smokey look or pale nude eyeliner is applied to make the eyes look wider.
- Lower Lashline: Just below the waterline, where liner and shadow is also applied to define the eyes.
- Tear Duct: The inner corner of your eye, where usually pale or shimmery shadow is added to open up the eye.
