Happy {Oscars} Weekend!

At last, the weekend is upon us! Amidst a flurry of activity, I am looking forward to ending the weekend with a bit of carved out time to enjoy the Oscars, the gorgeous gowns and the sentimental speeches.

Those of you who follow me on twitter, know that I was in the audience for an Oprah taping one week ago today! Best Actor Oscar nominee Colin Firth and Director Tom Ford (yes, that Tom - former Gucci and YSL creative director) where there to talk about their movie, A Single Man. Oh my is it beautiful! Aesthetically and artistically, I'm not sure I've ever seen such a lovely film. It's no surprise that Tom's background in fashion influenced the look of the film! As my friend put it, "The movie was like a beautiful Tom Ford dress."

Have a wonderful weekend, my dears. Welcome to my new readers and thank you to my loyal ones, I love you! xoxo, Crystal

P.S. In case you were wondering, yes, Tom is absolutely gorgeous and impeccable looking in real life and Colin is hunky and delicious...especially with that British accent!! :)

Sounds like such a great day! Also sounds like I need to get my hands on this movie.

Oh so lucky! Colin is so charming, and Tom just oozes appeal (unfortuneately, we're not his type...). Sounds like a fun afternoon.

Have a great weekend Crystal!

I don't do awards shows. But that table setting is the most beautiful thing I have seen in a long time.
Happy weekend!
