Rainy Day Shopping

It's been raining on and off the whole day, so instead of doing the logical thing, which would have been working on my thesis, I went shopping instead. My bad. I have been steadily learning the art of procrastination throughout grad school. And now that I'm home, I'm blogging and eating gummy bears instead of working on my thesis.

I ended up buying some shoes. Aren't these pretty? I love the color AND they're super comfy! They're from Circa Joan & David. I love the brand because most all their shoes are stylish, yet comfy.

A Twist on Frozen Bananas

I usually never order dessert at a restaurant, but these sounded too good to pass up a few weeks ago: Frozen bananas rolled in peanut butter, then coasted in chocolate, then sprinkled with peanuts, and served with fresh whipped cream.

SO GOOD and worth every calorie. I'm going to try and make these sometime.

For those in the L.A. area wishing to try this dessert, here's the location:

Larchmont Grill
5750 Melrose Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90038

Golden Globes

Did anyone watch the Golden Globe Awards last night? I actually drove by the Beverly Hills Hilton where the show takes place on my way home from school got a glimpse of the red carpet from the car...exciting! Sadly, no movie star sighting. All I saw were a bunch of photographers, security guards, and assistants.

I usually love seeing all the gowns more so than the actual awards show. Below are my favs from this year:

Olivia Wilde in Marchesa

Kyra Sedgwick in Emilio Pucci

Mila Kunis in Vera Wang

Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive

Giuliana Rancic in Zac Posen
