Fall Beauty Trend- 2009

Since it is my first Fall in Denver, I am thoroughly getting to enjoy cooler weather and the gorgeous fall leaves on the trees. I am missing LA on the other hand though, because I am used to September and October being 100 + degrees and hitting Disneyland for their annual Halloween decor. Still, I am paying more attention to fall clothing and beauty trends, since now I can actually wear them instead of my usual summer clothes until Christmas.

I love nail polish, so I find this color to be very interesting! InStyle Magazine shared that Jade (?!) is the new color for Fall 2009, and many celebrities have been seen wearing it to premieres and red carpet events. The Jade Collection by Chanel is out for a limited time, at $25 dollars a bottle.

Live from New York...It's Saturday Night!

Last night was SNL's premiere episode for Season 35, with host Megan Fox and musical guests U2.There were some entertaining skits from my faves Will Forte and Fred Armisen, but the most talk is revolving around new girl on the job- Jenny Slate. Slate, in a skit with Kristen Wiig, dropped the F-bomb during a back and forth dialogue filled with "freakins" but instead she let the F-word slip. In her defense, with a skit so filled with the "almost word" I would have found it hard to not let it slip too! Those on the West Coast might have missed it, as they bleeped it out for that feed. Being in Denver, I was watching it live and had to rewind because I thought I heard wrong. Nope.

U2 was good as usual, but I found Bono's breaking into a somewhat-rap kinda weird. I also wish they would have played my favorite song from their new album, "Magnificent". All in all, SNL did ok but I am looking forward to the disaster that is Lady Gaga, next week as the musical guest.

While the rest of the episode could have used some help, leave it to Andy Samberg to create a funny SNL Digital Short:

Emmy Night 2009

What better way to start off my new blog than to talk about the Emmy Awards? My personal faves were Mad Men for Drama and 30 Rock for Comedy, and they both happened to win.

Here is the complete list of winners in case you missed it: Emmy Award Winners 2009

While Neil Patrick Harris did a somewhat good job hosting, I can't say that it was all that entertaining.There was the typical song and dance opening, which I don't understand why it needs to be on almost every award show. There were no surprises this year, I am sad Jon Hamm did not win Best Actor in a Drama for the second year in a row, but maybe Breaking Bad is really that good. Dresses from the ladies were colorful, my favorites being of course the gorgeous January Jones in Versace, Kate Walsh in J. Mendel and Jennifer Love Hewitt in Max Azria.

My not-so fave? Leighton Meester. She looked like a hot mess with her baggy Bottega Veneta dress and moppy hair. I was also slightly disappointed in Christina Hendricks fashion choice, seeing as she has a body for a much more colorful and youthful dress.
