Let me start off by saying that there were a lot of beautifully dressed people at the Academy Awards. It was extremely hard to make this list. The majority of the celebrities brought their “A” game. However, here are my top 10 favorites from the special night, and this is in no particular order.
Robin Roberts: She looked simply amazing and radiant. I absolutely loved her dress, and blue accessories. This color is very rich, and deep. This was a great choice!
Salma Hayek: The neck piece on this dress is gorgeous. It definitely brought this otherwise simple dress to the next level. She looked very elegant.
Halle Berry: It should be no surprise that Halle is on this list. Her dress was on point! I’m in love with this design! It was very unique, and also exuded a lot of sexiness.
Kelly Rowland: Kelly is having some year. Every time she hits the stage or carpet, she is dressed to impress. She looked wonderful.
Naomi Watts: She killed this dress. I am a fan of the one sleeve look. It was well-fitting, and very different compared to the other dresses.
Jennifer Hudson: J Hud’s complete look was amazing; everything worked together.She’s worked the bang and long tresses. She looked beautiful!
Jane Fonda: Jane Fonda definitely put some of her young counterparts to shame. The yellow fits her very well, and made her a standout. She looked absolutely stunning!
Stacy Kiebler: Kiebler’s entire look is awesome. I loved her dress, and her old-school hairstyle. The black accent belt really brought this dress together.
Jessica Alba: Alba’s look screamed classy and elegant. She was simply beautiful in this coral dress. The busy necklace and clutch definitely completed the look without offsetting anything.
Selena Gomez: While her dress may not have been as glamorous as the other guests, I must admit that I really liked her choice. I absolutely loved the design on the upper part of the dress, and I liked how the tulle was cut asymmetrical.
Although, she didn’t make the official list, I think FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, looked beautiful! It was a nice surprise to see that she was an award presenter.
Now, I’d have to say that my least favorite person of the night was Anne Hathaway. She is so boring! O-M-Gee!
Who were some of your favorites?
I absolutely love Essie nail polish! It is by far the best brand of polish I’ve used, and I am no professional by any means, hence the shoddy job I did. Essie nail polish consistency is really thick, and two coats will always do the job. I chose Aruba Blue because blue is my favorite color. The moment I saw it, I fell in love. I was a bit hesitant because I wasn’t sure how it would look against my skin complexion, but I was pleased with how it turned out. Aruba Blue is a very pigmented color, as are all of the Essie nail polishes that I’ve tried. This brand is on the more expensive side, but it’s definitely worth it. It’s long-lasting, the colors turn out amazing, and there is such a variety to choose from. It’s obvious that I’d recommend this brand, but I’d also recommend trying this color. I believe that this shade of blue can be worn year-round. So, give it a shot; I think you may fall in love with it, too.
I ordered a two-egg breakfast that was accompanied by my choice of hash browns or home fries, grits or gravy, and either a biscuit or toast. I chose hash browns, grits, and a biscuit. I was feeling pretty hungry, so I ordered a single pancake as well. The food was cooked to order, and made right in front of us. They have a setup very similar to the Waffle House. Although I had to add salt and pepper to my meal, it was still pretty good. It was definitely like having a home cooked meal. I am very specific when ordering, and everything came out perfectly. The serving sizes were good. The pancake was the size of the plate, and was light and fluffy. It was delicious! I drank coffee, and had no complaints there either.
The service was awesome. We were greeted as soon as we came in. The cooks and cashier were very nice and helpful. They cracked a few jokes, and made the dining experience excellent. We didn’t have to wait long for our orders to be taken or to receive our food. We were often checked on, and our glasses remained full.
The restaurant is set up like a typical diner with booths, tables and counter seats. The seating is limited. I like diners because they always seem to have a comfortable and inviting setting. This diner was no different.
Overall, I enjoyed my experience. The food was good, the service was great, and I loved the diner atmosphere. Not to mention, the prices were just right. I would most certainly recommend this restaurant.
