And the winner is…

Ah The Oscars. Usually I’m very excited about them but this year, for one reason or another I haven’t managed to see very many of the films nominated so feel somewhat clueless about who should or shouldn’t have won an award. However, I still enjoyed eyeing up the fashion. I love a good dress and The Oscars is the ultimate ceremony when a girl can really go for it, wear the gown of their dreams (given to them or made for them for free!) and make a real statement.

In 2012, it was a little bit too safe for my liking. I think I was missing Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman as they always bring the glamour. But, in saying that, hands down my winner was Michelle Williams. Yay!! I love her style and she nearly always gets it right with her choices. This time, it was perfect!

A close second was Guiliana Rancic, who is a TV presenter for E! Entertainment. She was working that night but turned up looking more stunning than most of the actresses nominated. And tying with her would have to be George Clooney’s arm candy, Stacy Keibler. Again, not nominated but looked so good!

Noted a lack of necklaces which annoyed me as I do like a bit of jewellery darling! And as I rambled on to my hubby- “If I go to the Oscars..” he interrupts ‘You mean when you go to the Oscars’, I laughed, corrected, “Yes sorry, WHEN I go to the Oscars, I wouldn’t wear something like that!” And he would of course be my date haha…you never know. I definitely have some drama in me.

The Good Wife

Alicia hearts Will?

The dark nights are descending and nothing is more relaxing than cuddling up on the sofa with a blanket and a cuppa, even better with a fire going. It’s also the time that I catch up with some of my favourite TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy and my new love, The Good Wife.

I’m not a TV addict, I have a few shows that I hate to miss and since the demise of ER, Sex and the City, Friends etc, there’s only been very few that I’ve got into. One that I discovered over the summer when my hubby left me alone for a week :( was The Good Wife.

Lead actress Julianna Margulies is brilliant as Alicia Florrick in this US series. She is very understated, subtle but so present. Her supporting cast is also superb, noone trying to overshadow anyone else and a nice balance between drama and comedy.

It’s going into its third season, hopefully showing on More4 or RTE. If you’re looking for a new TV show that will absorb you in it’s relationships, the storyline, with episodic asides of court drama, then I recommend it. I don’t think I’m giving anything away by the ‘Alicia hearts Will’ tagline because I think most viewers are ‘willing’ those two to get together (sorry for the bad pun!)…I’ll keep watching with hope!
