BOWS ARE BIG right now, & I'm lovin them all. Here are some of the bows I'd love to own/wear. The first bow is a purse from Tai-Pan Trading, it comes in multiple colors and has two different straps lengths $29.97. You can also find the same bag at Ruche for $38.99.


The MTV Movie Awards and the only thing i cared about was the Fashion. I love watching all red carpet events, here are some of my favorites.

Jessica Biel looked beautiful as always, she looked so fresh, clean and fun. I love her hair and the her white/sheer polka dot dress.

Mirada Cosgrow {i carly} looked adorable and fun . Her dress was fun and flirty, i loved the texture, color and the flowyness {if that's even a word}.

Whitney Port I just love everything about this girl she is so beautiful. Loved her hair, make up and strappy heels. The color of her dress looked so good on her i loved everything about it.

Scarlett Johansson okay this was my favorite of the night. I am obsessed with anything green, and this color and her looks gorgeous.

I fell in love with Anna Kendrick on "UP IN THE AIR" she looked so cute, like a funky ballerina or something.

Did you watch the MTV MOVIE AWARDS? What were your favorite red carpet looks?
