Recaps + a Recipe

Happy Monday!

I have a mishmash of thoughts and pictures today. Sorry for being all over the place.

Since we are a few hours ahead, I spent my morning recapping the Oscars.
The bird's work put together Oscar ballots and boy, did we miss the mark. I think one of the only ones we answered right was Best Picture: 12 Years a Slave. So well deserved.
I just love Ellen. And here were a few of my favorite looks for the night: Cate Blanchett // Lupita Nyong'o // Julia Roberts

Here's a recap of the best moments of the night.

On another, completely separate note, I am finally getting back into my groove after this awful bug.
Did any of you get it? It was terrible! And it's taken 2 weeks to feel like myself again! Time for yoga.

Lastly, the granola seen above was one of the things I accomplished this weekend. It was delicious!
Salty, sweet and filling. Perfect over yogurt or served in almond milk. Yum!

That granola looks delicious! I'm glad you are starting to feel better this flu season has been really terrible! Btw I didn't get a change to comment on your Friday post but the pair of D'orsay flats I got are super comfortable! I definitely recommend them! xoxoxo

Ugh, glad you're back on the up and up! Lupita stole the night, what a rockstar! I love the Oscars and am honestly a bit sad that now we have an entire year of waiting to watch them again!

Anne Hovingh said...

I still can't get over Lupita's dress - it's so beautiful and flowy! The colour just looks amazing on her. I think her award was the most deserved one, it felt like everyone was rooting for her!
I do feel a bit sad for Leo for missing out on yet another Oscar, but the competition was very worthy - Matthew definitely did deserve his gold statue!

Lupita ALWAYS knocks it out of the park, her style is impeccable and she is so consistently good at it plus she is gorgeous!

We do a ballot with Theo's family and he and I both knew 12 Years a Slave was going to win but we went with our hearts and chose Wolf of Wall Street knowing it wasn't going to win! Lupita did look amazing! Girl's got gorgeous skin!

That light blue dress killed me. She is insanely beautiful and talented (and humble!)

p.s.
I know you follow me on Bloglovin', so I just wanted to update you that my url changed (and like a dummy), I forgot to post it BEFORE I moved my blog to a new URL- so when I sent out the update no one already following me could see it... ugh.

So FYI, I'm now permanently at www.haveashley.com, and I have a link posted in the most recent post if you'd like to refollow through Bloglovin'. New layout and content is pending, but I wanted to be sure my friends actually see it (so embarrassing!)

Thanks for your support and understanding with the hiccups in the change!
