There was such a 50/50 love it or hate it vibe with this year's Golden Globes. With every post like this I point out that it's black tie so black and white will always be the staple colours. This year, I was surprised to see that yellow and pink made a huge standout amongst that.
Emma Stone
Actress Emma Stone wore this stunning Valentino gown in light pink with silver star accents. As I previously said pink was very big this year and I found it complimented a lot of the celebrities. What really draw me into this is the cut of the dress. With the low V neck, the detailed spaghetti straps and train, here Emma has screamed hollywood elegance. 


Lily Collins
She stole the entire show for me. Draped in Zuhair Murad Couture, Lily Collins wore a beautiful, lace, blush pink gown. For me, Lily Collins emulates fashion like Audrey Hepburn use to and here she's contrasted with a bold red lip yet complimented the busyness of the gown by wearing her hair up. Definitely my favourite from the Golden Globes this year.


Tom Hiddleston
For the life of me, whenever I need to find who made the suit I never can. Please press, when asking "what are you wearing" don't discriminate, ask the men to! 
Tom Hiddleston always gives a gentleman vibe when attending events like this. Sporting a bit more facial hair, a white pocket handkerchief, black shirt buttons, satin lapels and shiny shoes he's taking old school hollywood and keeping it alive. I love it when men dress in this fashion with either a black tie or dickie bow. What stood out for me is the double breasted blazer as a for tall men it's easy to throw on a blazer that isn't as fitted. Again no discrimination, men can show off their figures to!

Kerry Washington
Wearing Dolce & Gabbana, Kerry stepped into the wrong dress for the night. I'm so sorry but what were Dolce & Gabbana thinking creating a design like this? If yellow was going to be a stand out colour, why make it so pastelized when spring isn't anywhere near yet? Kerry's hair and make up was stunning and in my opinion this table cloth look dress with a short side buckle was the complete wrong way to go. 


Zoe Saldana 
This two tone dress mixed the wrong shades of pink for Zoe. The actress stepped out in a ruffled Gucci nightmare tied together with a mauve satin bow. In my opinion this was probably one of the dresses I hated the most. I feel like the draping wasn't uniformed and made the train unnecessary. Bringing the ruffling under the armpit drew away from the neckline and if there was to be a bow in any form it should of been tied on the back.

Danny Glover
Again I have no indication as to who made the suit but whoever did needs to discontinue it immediately. I hate velvet with a passion and I find it strange that the fabric that will pick every hair and fibre up would be worn to a red carpet event. For me this suit looks like sofa material and it really clashes with the shiny black shoes. I also think Danny's blazer should have been double breasted as this suit looks a little like it's wearing him. Double breasting the jacket would elongate his chest and be better fitting.

So that is my top three best and worst fashions from this years Golden Globes. If there are any other red carpet events where you'd like me to review the fashion, comment below ^.^

I know this post is a lot later than other bloggers but I wanted to take a week off after a hectic Christmas period. You may or may not know, but since September I've been working two jobs over 6 days of the week and posting quite a lot of content on this blog to. I ended both jobs on the 31st December and started my new job on the 1st January so I haven't had a lot of time. 
I honestly didn't know what to put in this post as I feel as if 2016 wasn't the greatest year and I feel I didn't accomplish as much as I'd of liked to. This year I am taking a step forward but also taking a step back in all the different areas of my life. Here are 17 things I want to accomplish in 2017.

Blog

- Open a PO Box. I've come to a weird standstill with that as I have had some lovely offers from companies to try their products but I'm not all too comfortable to keep using my own address.
- Take a good profile picture. Taking pictures of myself as something or someone else when I do my Halloween looks is easier than when I doll myself up. I am learning to be happier in myself but this year I really want to have a proper/ official Blog Profile with a picture included.
- Post more in the community. I don't always chat with people on Blogger or other social media sites and that is something I'd like to get more involved in.
- Take my time. I sometimes feel as if I rush to get the post out with everyone else or I'm blogging what isn't relevant. If I want to post a review 2 months after the products has come out I will. I will take my time.
- Post more fashion. I love fashion from red carpet events to magazine shoots. It isn't always going to be wish lists and reviews. I want to post OOTD and even do a post on fashion throughout the years.

Lifestyle

- Go back to the gym. I really loved my gym but with working hours and health reasons I just couldn't keep in a routine. With this job I am hoping that will change and for me to find a 24 Hour gym so I have no excuse about the closing time.
- Be easier on myself. I am a stressor and worrier and that needs to change. I won't be working multiple jobs this year and I won't keeping putting myself in stressful situations.
Say Yes More. There have been situations where I feel as if I'm not going to belong with other bloggers if I go to IMATS or going to fit in if I go to Comic Con and I need to get rid of that feeling of not being good enough to be somewhere and just enjoy the experience.
- Bullet Journal. I have got a blog post on this coming up. I love my Erin Condren and I always recommend it but recently I found myself too busy to use it and when I wasn't too busy I was to sick with my colitis to plan anything to do. I hated having all those wasted pages. I was flicking through Pinterest and found Bullet Journaling. The idea that it's planned as you go along is brilliant. If I end up missing a couple of weeks, I just draw up the week I'm using it for. I can make lists, doodle and basically do anything I want in it as nothing is set. 
- Read More. I think I've said this for a few years and I do need to read more. I love to read and I keep seeing all these movies based on books and even though I know I'd love to read the book, I see the film because of timing and convenience. 
- Clear out and Scrapbook. I have so much stuff I need to sort through, scrapbook the memories and chuck out what I don't need / want.
- Planning The Goals. With all of these different things I want to achieve I want to plan ahead with them. For example when I lose the weight, plan to clear out and revamp my wardrobe. When I clear out and scrapbook plan what I will do with the space...etc
- Save. The reason I work so much is that I am striving to be more stable in a financial way. I am only at this current job for 9 months so I have to plan ahead whether I can save to be stable for a little bit or whether I need a job to move onto straight after. I have produced a savings page in my Bullet Journal which you'll see in an upcoming post.
- Colitis? What Colitis? If you haven't read my blog before you wouldn't know that I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (UC) almost three years ago. I do have a three year update on it coming soon but you can find other posts throughout the years on my blog. It basically has hindered me in different parts of my life and I don't want it to keep doing that. I will always have UC and I can't stress with it anymore if I'm down for the count, I'm down for the count. Can't do anything about it, didn't ask for it, don't want it but it's there. I have to have that attitude more and in a way forget about it and move on as best I can.

Family & Friends

- Take More Pictures. I have a couple of events to attend this year and not only is it my goal to attend them but to take more pictures so I have more memories to look back on.
- See them more. I use to spend so much time with my family and friends but the past year feels like I've not seen them just kept in touch over text and social media and that needs to change.

Personal

- Propranolol. This year I had to say ok I need more help and I've been taking Propranolol to ease my anxiety with travel and colitis. This year I'd like to find more coping techniques with my anxiety and ultimately come off the propranolol.

There they are, the 17 things I want to accomplish this year. I would love to achieve all of them but I'm not putting too much pressure on myself. I just want to enjoy this year.


As always, thanks for reading...
