I love award season. I feel it is the antidote to the millions of hours that husbands log on Sundays watching sports (and many wives are into the sports thing as well, just not in my household). The perfect Sunday get together involves sports in the living room and Red Carpet in the basement. If I may borrow a line from Mikey’s solo in Goonies: Because it’s their time. Their time! Up there! Down
here, it’s our time. It’s our time down here.
These are my picks for the Golden Globe winners tonight…note, you won’t see any actors, just party accessories. That’s ’cause I know jack about acting, but a lot about parties.
1 & 2: We are having a little girl’s night tonight and why not bust out some champagne? These govino glasses are perfect for an informal toast to welcome red carpet season, and my favorite champagne (ok, fine, sparkling white/ cava for those who insist) is Segura Viudas Brut. Under $10 a bottle but tastes like 3x that much.
3: I received this cookie in a subscription box recently- it is from the Momofuku Milk Bar bakery and store in NYC. The flavor? Cornflake-chocolate-chip-marshmallow cookies. Just pulled them out of the oven and well…we’ll see how badly I screwed them up.
4: You will be seeing a lot of this accessory on me. It is a bun pin- the chicest way to dress up a messy topknot or bun this side of the Mississippi (and the other side of it as well). This is the Kitsch Crown Pin, and resembles a mini chevron tiara. Need I say more?
5: Just scored this from Sephora- the NARS Lip Pencil Duo is the birthday gift for Sephora Beauty Insiders this year (thanks Lisa at Shop Girl Daily for the scoop). The pencils are the Allure Best of Beauty Award Winners; the one pictured above is the Matte Velvet Lip Pencils in Cruella. Gorgeous.
What are your red carpet must-haves? Do tell!
