I love animals this much too.......

This is pretty much the BEST, silliest, funniest and cutest thing I have seen in a long time and I would act just like this.....I love sloths, but I would freak out for a mini pig? or a baby goat! I am serious...I am a mental case like her.................


SO....I finished the final book and it was a task let me tell you, I feel weird considering these  have been on the top of the bestseller list for so long....so I thought it was a shoe in that I would love them too. but......Eh?
To catch you up if you want.......
My review on the first book HERE : I didn't love it (too much politics)
The second book review is HERE : I did love this one, it kept me guessing and I had to find out what was going to happen.
So now for the FINALE........................ The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest
I did love the way this trilogy ended, I thought it was wrapped up nicely and of course I will see the movies when they come to the theater. BUT the first 3/4 of the book was brutal.......we are talking about at least 40 characters ALL with almost the exact same Swedish names! I had no idea what was going on and the only reason I finished is so I would know Lisbeth's fate! This book was like reading a very boring and in depth police report for 500 pages.

So would I recommend this trilogy? Not so much, if you even out all my reviews I give this Trilogy a "ho-hum"!!! And to think I spent all together like 6 weeks reading these......gosh! I can NOT wait to start something new and enjoyable!

SAG Style

 Oh I just love awards season (as you know) and I have picked my least favorites and my most stylish from last nights awards! Good or Bad first???????
SO bad first.........
* Kaley Cuoco, I think this looks like a prom dress but it is also one color shade away from a wedding dress. Fail!
 *Kristin Wiig, she may be trying to bring back the "chocker" (I hope it doesn't) but paired with a dress that already ties around her neck? This confuses me?? Yuck
 * Angie....I Know I know....how dare I put "Saint Angie" (as many call her) on this list.... but to me this dress looks like a cheap knock of a dress she should of worn off that is made with pleather. And she is so thin it kinda grosses me out, her bones are just poking out everywhere.
 * Oh Heather Morris form Glee.....why? I don't need so say anymore.........
 * Natalie Portman, I do not know why someone would put what looks to be a dead flower hanging from her boob on a dress??!. It is not a good look even on someone as pretty as Natalie!
 Are you ready for my GOOD????????

* Jayma Mays, I love love love this dress! It fills my heart with "Glee" (lol)! This dress is stunning and this picture doesn't do her justice from how she looked on TV! She glowed!
 * Michelle Williams....again, a complete class act. Simple but stunning!
 * Jane Lynch........I surprised you didn't I? I LOVE this dress, the textured material and the color. This is so pretty on her and I would kill to wear this. You can't tell but her earrings have blue and purple on them....perfection!
 *Emma Stone, so young, so pretty......so perfect! She can make anything look stunning!
 * Viola Davis, I kinda feel like this is too much cleavage BUT her face just radiates happiness and that is the perfect accesory. I think she looks completely glamorous! I was so glad that she and her Help co-stars won so many categories!
 * Miss George Clooney's Arm Candy........and she fits right in, in this stunning dress! She looks perfect! I love the shape and her hair but you can't go wrong with black!
Who did you love and who did you hate?????

Oh Boy!

So what happens when I am cleaning house and for 1 minute I leave the room AND I apprantly left with the trashcan lid open?????
Don't ask me how (it must of been a team effort) but my already portly weenie Oscar managed to get my old entirely WHOLE french baguette out of the trash and dig in........
When I tried to take it away he went insane, chewing it as if his life depends on this bread that is the same size as he his. I have Gladiator on the TV in the back ground so maybe he saw them throw bread to the commoners at the arena and he wanted to fit in??? Either way, he has left a big mess and any bets on how long until he pukes? I give it 20 minutes! SUPER!
It is always interesting at Casa de Savage
(which is still for sale by the way, and I just might clean up the mess if you buy it)

Collector or Hoarder?

Everyday when I walk by my "collection" I think .....I have gotta do a post about this and today I finally have! I am a collector......a collector of jewelry ( I think I get this from my Oma). I will start by saying that other than my wedding rings and a set of pearls that is all the "real" jewelry I own but that doesn't mean my items are any less special!
What are my current favorite brands?
Stella & Dot, Express, Vera Wang for Kohl's and JCrew (on sale of course) and I store them grouped by type and occasion.....
I have pieces that I can remember buying over 10 years ago and I can tell you what I wore it with or why I bought it. And about 50% of my collection has never been worn.....I "collect" it for that one special day when I might wear it!
I have this over the door shoe rack packed with over 200 pieces of jewelry....you will find $75 pieces mixed in with my clearance $2 find! This is only my bracelets and a portion of my longer necklaces! Yes, you heard me right only bracelets!
I don't have everything stored in anything fancy just things that work for me......here are all my earrings that I keep in a 3 tier clear drawer...they are grouped starting from the top by Gold, Silver and Misc.
I have my favorites.........
I have taken Matt's old "Mens Valet" that he never used and I have found that it is the perfect way for me to display everything so that I find what I need. In the leopard box I keep my sentimental pieces and the wooden box you will find my costume rings that I hardly wear!
On the part of the valet meant to hang each days outfit I have taken over to hang my necklaces....it is perfect! There are vintage finds, JCrew splurges and pieces I just haven't found the perfect outfit for yet....yet!
I will say I get 90% of my stuff on sale which makes me happy and helps me to justify my expanding collection to Matt! So what do you collect?
I would love to someday add something real to my collection (hint hint Matt)!!! We shall see! Until then.......if you need something you know where to find me! LOL
