Life Lately (April Instagram Update)

April Instagram Update | Rosemary on the TV

April was sort of a whirlwind! I started the piling in a car with friends to go see the XX at the New Daisy Theater in Memphis. Easter meant spending time with my 94-year-old Pawpaw, and my cousin’s adorable two-year-old. We also went on a  mini-vacay to New Orleans, but I’ll share more about that tomorrow. And sadly, Aaron sold his 1970 MG this month, which meant we took lots of convertible rides while we could.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap : Bigger, Fluffier, Uglier

Before we get in too deep, there are a couple of things you need to know about last night’s Met Gala:

1) The theme was “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” – a celebration of the designer known for big, structured dresses. So I’ll just go ahead and check my bias against ball gowns at the door. A theme is a theme, after all, and I would hope that this theme was embraced a little more successfully than last year’s “punk” theme.

2) The attire was White Tie. If you’re unfamiliar with the rules, Black Tie means men wear tuxes and women wear formal gowns. Traditionally, formal meant floor-length. But more and more, women can get away with cocktail dresses at Black Tie events – fancy cocktail dresses, but cocktail dresses nonetheless. White Tie is a step up from that. It means men should, according to the rules, wear tails and a white bow tie, and women wear floor-length gowns. Them’s the rules!

3) HOWEVS, the Met Gala is the biggest fashion event of the year and rules will always be broken. But last night – the rules weren’t just broken. They were ripped to shreds and Hollywood spit on their weeping remains.

Because we’re working with a theme here, and because the Met Gala is all about BIG FASHION, this recap is a little more complicated than “Good” and “Bad.” I’m splitting things up into groups this go around, so stay with me!

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

The Best : Blake Lively

In case for ONE SECOND you thought you were winning at life, I present: Blake and Ryan. This is what movie stars look like, amiright ladies? I absolutely love the jewelry with this dress, but ultimately, her greatest accessory was her arm candy.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

The Good : Hailee Steinfeld

What Hailee managed to do here was take a theme (ball gowns) and modernize it, and she absolutely succeeded. I love the peek of pink underneath and her fresh makeup and simple hair.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

The Good : Charlize Theron

This look was flawless, and a modern take on what Charles James did, just like Hailee’s dress. I like to think that insane ear cuff is an ode to last year’s punk rock theme.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

The Good : Karlie Kloss

Looking past the gloves for the sake of THEME here, this dress was gorgeous. The print was dramatic but not dizzying and she looked v. classic.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

 The Good: Emmy Rossum

I might regret this in the morning, and I might’ve made fun of dresses like this in the past – but for some reason, I liked this on her. Maybe I’m embracing the spirit of the ball gown better than I thought I would!

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

The Good : Reese Witherspoon

I’m usually bored with Reese’s red carpet looks, but something about this was definitively not boring to me. The color? The unusual top? The perfect hair and lipstick? You know what, guys? I’m not going to over think it.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

The Good Try : T-Swift

From the back, it was amazing. And then she turned around:

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

And it was like a wrinkled Easter dress with a sad neckline. Good try, T-Swift!

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

The Good Try : Kim K

This is such a vast improvement from the chintz wallpaper she wore to last year’s Met Gala that I almost wonder if Anna Wintour didn’t threaten to uninvite her if she didn’t show up looking Klassy. This was almost on my Good list. ALMOST. But the top and the hips had a little bit of a flouncy, droopy thing happening, like the dress didn’t fit her properly.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Right but Not Right Now : Emma Stone

Under any other circumstances, this would’ve been my favorite look of the evening. I thought Emma looked casual and fresh and so, so pretty. Would I have liked it better if the two parts of her dress were actually connected and she wasn’t showing an inch of midriff? Yes, but if you MUST show midriff – an inch is about the only way to do it chicly. Unfortch, this look was all wrong for this event.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Right but Not Right Now: Anne Hathaway

I mean, it’s not the best Anne Hathaway has ever looked, but it’s CERTAINLY not the worst.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV
Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Right but Not Right Now : Rihanna

I would have absolutely loved this without the bare midriff. Or even with the 1-inch midriff peek that Anne and Emma were sporting. It still would’ve been all wrong for this event but when it comes to Rihanna and dress codes, expectations are only so high.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Right but Not Right Now : Rachel McAdams

I use the word “Right” loosely here. Rachel looks pretty but boring, which usually deserves its own category on these red carpet fashion recaps – there’s usually a LOT of pretty but boring. But at the Met Gala? “Pretty but boring” equates to “Why’d you bother showing up?”

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Good Way : Karolina Kurkova

You might disagree with me on this one, because I admit – it is way crazy. And when I first saw photos of her trying to, say, climb out of the car or walk through a doorway, this dress was even laughable. But on the red carpet? At an event honoring a designer famous for big dresses? At an ART MUSEUM? Suddenly, this dress became a work of fine art.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Good Way: Erykah Badu

So listen. There are literally two people on the planet who could pull off this look — oh, wait, Erykah Badu’s hat just ate Pharrell’s hat, so now I guess there’s only one person on the planet who could pull off this look.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Good Way: Janelle Monae

In a departure from her sig look, Janelle totally rocked this cape, and the styling was impeccable. Could a run-of-the-mill starlet have pulled it off? No. But that’s the thing about Crazy in a Good Way – you have to always be a little crazy to pull off crazy on the red carpet, just like Janelle and Erykah. You can’t be pretty but normal most of the time and try to suddenly get crazy for a red carpet event. Then, you don’t look cool, you just look….well, crazy.

And speaking of Crazy in a Bad Way, this category pretty much sums up ALL the rest of the people in attendance at last night’s Met Gala. A. Whole. Bunch. Of. Crazy.

::rubs hands together like a super villain::

Let’s do this!

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

 

Crazy in a Bad Way: Kirsten Dunst

Somewhere there’s a nerd that only has two wishes left.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Bad Way: Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal is totally that insane party girl you went to college with who had a kid and got really into clean eating and holistic facial scrubs and now she’s just a patronizing drag.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Bad Way : Kristen Stewart

Kristen looks like the popular mean girl in a John Hughes movie. This hodgepodge of Chanel dresses might’ve been okay without the sheer panel. Might’ve been okay, that is, for the MTV Movie Awards. But for a White Tie event? Nope.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

 

Crazy in a Bad Way : Zoe Saldana

But on the upside, if she gets tired, she has that handy bean bag to relax on!

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Bad Way: Kate Upton

Some idiot at Dolce & Gabbana : “Let’s do a passionate, Italian cougar-type look. La Dolce Vita! Il Positino! It’ll be so classic!”

Some other idiot at Dolce & Gabbana : “Passionate, Italian cougar-type? I know JUST the girl!!!”

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

 Crazy in a Bad Way : Beyonce

When I saw Beyonce’s dress from the front, I was sort of on board. Even though I’m not into the sheer skirt thing (and even though J-Law already rocked a veil at last year’s Met Gala) I could get behind it…until I ACTUALLY GOT BEHIND IT.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

I don’t wanna get swarmed by the Beyhive for saying this, but seriously guys, the back of this dress is ridiculous. And I’m not just saying that out of butt envy (though I do have it). Three more inches would take this to miniskirt status and THAT would have been acceptable.

But Jay-Z looked perfect.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Bad Way : Sarah Jessica Parker

SJP’s look was a perfect mix of the two beauty pageant dresses I wore in my short-lived pageant career – opera gloves and bouffant included. It looks like her top half is a Disney villain that is trying to eat a Disney princess (her bottom half). And an Oscar de la Renta signature across the back?! REALLY?! Does this mean my 1990s Tommy Hilfiger knock-off t-shirts with the logo emblazoned across the chest are cool again?

No?

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

 The Crazy in a Bad Way : Katie Holmes

I would give anything – LITERALLY ANYTHING NAME IT – to pull Katie’s crazy hair half up into a yellow scrunchie and pour her tea from a pot with a British accent and make her carry a French candelabra down the red carpet.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Bad Way : The Olsen Twins

In all fairness, Ashley looks all right. In a crazy-Olsen kinda way. The more pressing question is whether they ARE or ARE NOT sucking in their cheeks.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

 The Crazy in a Bad Way : Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita, Lupita. It’s a long, far fall from grace, but thank God you have a net to land in.

**Bah dum CHING!**

No but seriously she looks like a human cat toy.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Bad Way : Lena Dunham

Lena should just get “Crazy in a Bad Way” tattooed on the small of her back.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Bad Way : Neil Patrick Harris

Tweedledumb outfits AM I RIGHT?

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Bad Way : Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth’s dress is so wrong for the Met Gala, someone should club her in the knees!

(Because her dress looks like an ice skating uniform….get it? Too soon?)

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Bad Way : Brie Larson

Brie Larson got to design her own Prada outfit!

I hope everyone learned their lesson.


Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

 

Crazy in a Bad Way : Michelle Williams

This dress is so offensively wrong for this event that I couldn’t even put Michelle in the Right but Not Right Now category. Also, it looks like eyes peeking out from her boobs and stomach and that creeps me out.

Met Gala 2014 Fashion Recap | Rosemary on the TV

Crazy in a Bad Way : Shailene Woodley

Sewn from a curtain/duvet bedroom set straight from the Kohl’s sale* catalog.

*SALE, because no one would buy it the first time.

 Crazy in the MOST HILARIOUS POSSIBLE WAY : Sandra Lee

Cinderella, A Quinceañera Story

Coming to your local community theatre this summer!

Okay your turn! There were SO MANY terrible looks, I couldn’t fit them all here. Tell me which ones you loved, which ones you hated and which ones made you LOL.

Easter Egg-perimentation

Thanks for humoring my insane cheesy blog post titles sometimes.

:::bows:::

Today, I’ve got a guest post up over at Bourbon and Boots, where I’m sharing how to create marbleized Easter eggs. They turned out really well, but while I was making them, I experimented with a few other ways to dye eggs. I used water, vinegar and food coloring for all of these eggs, so they would be edible later on (when I definitely plan to make deviled eggs out of them).

For all the eggs here, I used this simple formula:

– Hardboiled eggs

– 1/2 cup water

– 1 Tbsp vinegar

– 10 drops food coloring in any color or combination of colors

Marbleized, Ombre, and Dark-dyed Easter Eggs | Rosemary on the TV #holiday #DIY

Aaron has been bringing home gorgeous farm-fresh eggs, thanks to one of his co-workers, so when I was hard boiling eggs, I included a few brown and light green eggs, which created really rich, beautiful hues.

Marbleized, Ombre, and Dark-dyed Easter Eggs | Rosemary on the TV #holiday #DIY

I’d seen ombre Easter egg tutorials online that involved six cups, labeled A-F, all with an assigned number of food coloring drops. Just FYI: that is totally not necessary. Make one cup for each color, and put each egg in for 30 seconds longer than the last one. Here, I started with a white egg in the dye for 30 seconds, then the second egg was in dye for a minute, then I switched to light green eggs, then brown.

Are you dying eggs this year? Any fun ideas to share?

Currently Obsessed : Chateau Gudanes

Chateau de Gudanes | Rosemary on the TV

Now…there are fixer uppers, and then there are fixer uppers. Can you imagine buying a three hundred year old French chateau and restoring it? Because that’s exactly what one Australian family is doing in the south of France right now. A quick history lesson for you.

Chateau de Gudanes | Rosemary on the TV

Chateau de Gudanes | Rosemary on the TV Chateau de Gudanes | Rosemary on the TV Chateau de Gudanes | Rosemary on the TV

Built in the early 1700s, Chateau de Gudanes, located in the small village of Chateau Verdun, was designed by neoclassic French architect Ange-Jacques Gabriel, known for designs like Petit Trianon – the small chateau at Versailles that Louis XVI gifted to Marie Antoinette. The Marquis de Gudanes threw lavish parties attended by the likes of Voltaire and Diderot.

Much later, the chateau was purchased by a foreign investment company that planned to turn its 94 rooms into 17 luxury apartments. APARTMENTS. Can you believe that?! Of course, they were denied the permits to do so, since the chateau is a class 1 historical monument, so the company let the house sit and decay for years before finally putting it back on the market.

Then, after four years of sitting on the market, Karina and Craig Waters purchased it and embarked on a full restoration of the house and ‘le parc’ – the 12 acres of land surrounding the chateau.

And THANK GOD for them, they set up a website, Facebook page and Instagram so we can follow along too.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror

Honestly? This post should be titled “How NOT to make a DIY floor mirror” because I pretty much did everything you shouldn’t do when making a DIY floor mirror. But it’s a true testament to the ease and awesomeness of this project that – no matter how much you screw up – you can’t actually screw it up.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

(image via Live the Home Life)

I originally got the idea from my friend Cara’s blog, Live the Home Life. Cara is a DIY warrior and she threw this little project together so easily, that I thought, “Oh, I can totally do that! No problem!”

Over a year ago, I bought a full-length, beveled mirror from Target – one of the frameless ones that you mount on the back of your door. They’re super inexpensive, about $15. But thinking I’d eventually get around to doing this project, it sat in the box collecting dust. Fast forward a year, and I finally got my butt in gear.

What You’ll Need:

Three boards – I used 1″ x 10″ 6-foot long boards, but I’d recommend 1″x8″

Frameless door mirror

Miter saw

Staple gun and staples

Gorilla Glue

Wood Filler (for emergencies)

1 quart wood stain

LiquidNails

 

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

Reading Cara’s instructions, I knew I needed three boards – two for the long sides, and one that I would cut in half and use for the top and bottom – a miter saw, a quart of stain, some staples and Liquid Nails. My mom had a miter saw and staple gun, so I went to Home Depot for the rest. Cara used 8″ boards to make her mirror, but I thought I’d beef mine up a little bit and use 10″ wide boards instead.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

Mistake #1: Don’t assume your mom has a miter saw, because sometimes, moms’ miter saws break and they don’t have them anymore.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

So that was my first mistake, but since I’d already bought all the stuff, we decided to try with a skill saw instead. The longer boards on each side needed to be 48″ long with 45 degree cuts on either end. The shorter top and bottom boards would be 12″ long with 45 degree cuts on either end. Ideally, the four pieces would fit together perfectly, which meant those 45 degree cuts had to be perfect.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

We used a ruler to draw a 45 degree cut, cut it with the skill saw, then used the first piece as a stencil for the other pieces. If you aren’t power tool savvy, the difference between a miter saw and a skill saw is this: miter saws sit on a table and make near-perfect cuts. Skill saws are handheld and do not.

So let’s just consider this Mistake #2: don’t use a skill saw when you really need a miter saw.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

Because once all the cuts were made, we weren’t even close to having four pieces that fit together. Distraught by this failure, and unable to stand not having a power tool when she needed it, my mom went off to buy a miter saw the next day. We made the cuts again, trimming off a little from the boards, which meant the four pieces would fit together a little more snuggly, and less of the mirror would show in the middle. But we were only losing about a 1/4 of an inch on all sides, so this was a minor problem.

However, this didn’t fix everything.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

Mistake #3: Miter saws don’t cut anything as wide as a 10″ board.

Yup, my genius idea to “beef up” my mirror backfired in my face. Miter saws can only cut wood that’s about 6-8″ wide. And here I had four 10″ boards. By this point, I wasn’t going to look back. So we did the best we could making the cuts and laid out the four boards to see how close we’d gotten.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

Um, not that close. Cara used a staple gun to staple the four pieces together, then filled in with a tiny bit of Gorilla Glue.  So I did the same.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

For extra support, I added brackets to the back. And then I put a little extra Gorilla Glue in the cracks.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

MISTAKE #4: DO NOT PUT EXTRA GORILLA GLUE IN THE CRACKS.

Some of the glue leaked through the crack to the front of the mirror and I spent 20 minutes trying to clean and sand the spots away. Even then, there were huge gaps in the cracks on the front of the mirror.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

So I ran to Sherwin Williams for some Wood Filler. This stuff is magic. It’s just putty that you swipe into the crack, then use a wet rag to wipe off the excess. Unlike caulk, it’s paintable and stainable.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

Once that was dry, it was time to stain. I used Minwax Wood finish in Dark Walnut, for a really dark, rich finish.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

Unfortch, I must not have gotten all the Gorilla Glue off, so there was some discoloration on those spots, but nothing too obvious.

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

Once the stain was dry, we laid the wood down on some newspaper and traced around the inside edge with LiquidNails, then gently laid the mirror down in place. I put some magazine  holders full of magazines on top of it over night, and the next morning:

$50 DIY Floor Mirror | Rosemary on the TV

I had a beautiful floor mirror that cost about $50. Despite the many mistakes I’d managed to make during the project, the mirror turned out beautifully. Which goes to show: it really can’t be screwed up.

Cost Breakdown:

1″ x 10″ x 6 ft boards: 3 at $9 each = $18

Liquid Nails: $2.50

1 Quart of Minwax Stain: $8

Wood Filler: $8

Frameless beveled mirror: $15

Gorilla Glue – already owned

Staple gun, staples and saws – already owned by Mom

Total cost: $51.50

Life Lately | March Instagram Update

Life Lately, March Instagram Update | Rosemary on the TV

March was a good month. I styled a spring fashion shoot for Sync, frequented The Fold with Aaron, had a long lunch with Hannah and Christie, went to IKEA with Brittany and was up to my ears in fresh flowers (and cocktails but that’s a normal occurrence).

Cheers to Julibox!

I’m not a stuff person. I don’t like to have a lot of stuff around the house. I am constantly cleaning out closets and throwing things away. I’m the opposite of a hoarder, I frequently think, “Where’d I put that thing I need?” then remember that in a moment of  cleaning euphoria, I threw it away that one time. So as you can imagine, this whole subscription box craze is not for me. I tried Birchbox and realized about two months into it that I hate having piles of small things around. WHAT AM I DOING?! Cancelled immediately.

But it seems I’ve found the one subscription box I can fully get behind.

Julibox, a Cocktail Delivery Service | Rosemary on the TV

Me and four of my college friends are spread out all over the country, so we usually go in together for a flower or cupcake delivery on each other’s birthdays. But this year, knowing how much Aaron and I love a good cocktail, the girls sent me a Julibox, a cocktail delivery service. On my birthday, I received an email from Julibox letting me know that my box would ship middle of March. And around the middle of March, I received a second email letting me know which mixers I would need for the cocktails that would be arriving in just a few days.

Julibox, a Cocktail Delivery Service | Rosemary on the TV

And when it came, I was absolutely thrilled. Everything about this company – from the box to the packaging to the TINY LIQUOR BOTTLES – is well-designed and fun. And I am a sucker for good packaging.

Julibox, a Cocktail Delivery Service | Rosemary on the TV

 

Each Julibox contains recipe cards and spirits for two glasses each of two different cocktails. So you and a date can enjoy two different drinks. The recipes are created by Julibox and tell you everything you’ll need, how to make it, a toast, and space for tasting notes.

Since I received the March Julibox, my two cocktails were St. Patrick’s Day-themed – the Basilica and the Old Dublin Mule. Did I mention: TINY LIQUOR BOTTLES?!

Julibox, a Cocktail Delivery Service | Rosemary on the TV

We made the Basilica first. And just as the email from Julibox told me, they were sending the spirits (gin and Angostura bitters) and I would need sugar, basil and a lime.

Julibox, a Cocktail Delivery Service | Rosemary on the TV

And the next night, the Old Dublin Mule, which was definitely my favorite with whiskey, cardamom syrup and dry ginger ale from Julibox. Mint and lime provided by me.

I don’t think I need to tell you that I absolutely love this idea. Of course, because they are a small, growing company, there’s a wait list to get a Julibox subscription right now, but add me to it! Prices start at $36/month and I think it’s totally worth it, considering you’d pay $10-12 per cocktail at a restaurant.

If you like cocktails, check out our Summer Cocktail Series here, or my Autumn Cocktail Series at Bourbon and Boots here.

Cheers!
