I am living in Italy right now so with the time difference, I did not stay up to watch The Oscars but I did take part in the red carpet (of course!).. My favorite looks this year all seem to be within the black and white theme, except for Mrs. Washington. Plunging necklines, fishtails, halter top neckline, and beautiful textures were very popular last night. Love the plunging neckline look!

Left: Portia De Rossi wearing Naeem Khan. I love the detail of this fabric. The print almost reminds me of Louis Vuitton desgin but its not. The cinched waist and hip hugging design looks flattering and fabulous on Ellen’s longtime girlfriend. 

Top left: Kate Hudson wearing Atelier Versace. This white gown is stunning and fits like a glove. The best part is the plunging open back design and draped cape look. I am always a big fan of open back dresses. The shoulder pads even work well here. 

Bottom middle: Kerry Washington –The star of  Scandal  wore a purple strapless gown by Jason Wu. Royal purple is my favorite color, so no wonder why I choose  this gown  as my favorite look at this years Oscars, or maybe it is because Kerry is glowing?! She is stunning with her dark lip and matching nail polish. Flawless.

Not to mention Scandal is my absolute favorite TV show.. I usually don’t get to obsessed with popular TV seasons. However this is my guilty pleasure and I don’t know what to do with myself when an episode ends.. Wait an entire week!?!? Ugh! If you have not watched go on Netflix, start at the beginning, and be prepared for your own obsession!

Top right: Anne Hathaway in Gucci halter gown. Wow. The photo probably does not do this dress justice because I can tell that the intricate design and detail is perfection. This slim fitting gown looks like a million bucks to me. Black and gold is regal and fit for a movie star. The back has a slit that ads sex appeal as well. I would love to try this dress on, just one time! It shines in all the right places.

Bottom right: Charlize Theron is a natural beauty but last night she was looking like a star in this black mermaid/fishtail fitting gown. This dramatic sexy look was paired with dripping diamonds.

Now we will wait to see what the Fashion Police have to say! Cant wait for the premier Oscar episode on E Friday night! I am sure the ladies and gents will have their claws out.. Raawr!

Magical Sights In Milan, Italy

The Duomo Cathedral in Milan, Italy. Larger than life and quite breathtaking!

The Duomo Cathedral in Milan, Italy. Larger than life and quite breathtaking!

Blue skies and a Sunday fun-day to do what we please.. Perfect time to sight-see the beautiful & historical architecture of Milano! The details are incredible inside and out. Gazing up at the handmade adornments filled me with amazement. We stepped  inside on a Sunday during the locals service, which was crazy because there were tourists all around with a rope separating the tourists from the church goers.

The tall decorated columns felt like they went on forever, the decorative marble flooring is perfection, and the candle lit prayer areas add a spiritual charm that warms your heart regardless of religious beliefs. Of course, the stained glass is one of my favorite elements.. Amazing!

Our next stop was a 7 story tall shopping area, The Galleria. This historical t-shaped building is filled with fine dining and top designer shops including Prada, Gucci, etc..  The best part in my opinion is the outrageous glass ceilings that offer natural sky lighting. Milan Feb 2014 (22) Milan Feb 2014 (23) Milan Feb 2014 (24)

My boyfriend and I make quite the team in the kitchen. We brought our American favorites to the table tonight.

Not only is my new boutique (ROC ME OUT-  www.rocmeout.com) my creative outlet but I love to cook! I love all foods including a healthy base with the regular indulgents too… I just cant help myself!

Yes, the VERY cheesy and bacon filled potato skins were my favorite. Of course..

Yes, the VERY cheesy and bacon filled potato skins were my favorite. Of course..

Easy to do:

Clean your selected potatoes, poke a few fork holes, rub on salt and olive oil for flavor, then bake in the oven for about an hour. Next, scoop out the potato to make boats.. Bake the boats for about 15 min on each side. Fill with your favorite toppings and pop back in the over just enough to heat the toppings! I top mine with sour cream and enjoy!

Homemade fresh and spicy salsa!

Salsa is a family recipe that brings a punch.. It is the fresh chopped jalapenos, diced tomatoes, and cilantro that brings the bold flavor!

Pop of color Sunday!

Add a pop of color to your day!

It is Sunday.. Day of rest! Perfect time to visit your local nail salon.. Choosing the polish and design is the most exciting part. I miss this escape because I have been doing my own nails since living in Europe. But I wanted to reminisce on some of my favorite nail designs! A pop of color will add to any outfit.

Our featured items on www.rocmeout.com can be matched with some of these color ideas.
