What’s one of the biggest evenings of the year? New Year’s Eve, of course! I know, I know, we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving yet, but seriously — New Year’s is the night to get your style on. After all, it’ll be your first look for 2016. Whether you want to go glamazon or classically couture — or both depending on how your night plays out— you know Rent The Runway will have the perfect dress for your party plans.

Don’t drop the ball. Reserve your New Year’s Eve dress now before someone else does!

I’m totally drooling over some of their New Year’s Eve styles. I’m tempted to rent them all and pull a Kim Kardashian and wear all three at different times during the night!

To complement  the colorful collection, essie created a coral half-moon nail  using tart deco and matte about you on the hands. To complete the overall look, she used one coat of limo-scene on the toes.

Get the Look (Hands):
1. Apply fist base base coat to clean, filed nails.

2. Next, apply tart deco in a semi circle at the base of the nail.

3. Once dry, apply matte about you.

Get the Look (Feet):
1. Apply first base base coat to clean, filed nails.

2. Next, apply one coat of limo-scene.

3. Follow with good to go top coat.







Recently I was able to attend the Ant Man premiere in Time’s Square, which was glamorous and overwhelming all at once.  The theater was huge, and as I sat with my complimentary popcorn and super-sized drink, I took into account the array of bloggers present. Everyone seemed excited, as well as myself, even though I had my doubts about the movie before I was invited.


Before the lights dimmed and we all settled into a silence, actor Paul Rudd appeared for a brief commentary about the film, what it’s like to be part of the Avengers team, and how much he appreciated us coming out. Then the movie began.I have to admit that I was was a little bit more than pleased with the movie. Even though I’m not familiar with the comics and storyline behind this unexpected hero, I was happy with the redeeming story of a troubled man, however cliche that may be. There was comedy and emotion, and of course action. And even though the classic Ant Man does not join the Avengers, I’m interested to see where this new story goes and how they tie it into the multitude of other Marvel movies out there.


All and all I enjoyed the film, the appearance of Paul Rudd, and the community that it brought together. I’d most definitely recommend it anyone who love the Marvel’s series, even though I personally like some of the others more. It’s definitely a family film, but one that will not bore the parents and will not be too much for the kids to handle.

I'm going to #BlogHer17 in Orlando!
