THE TALK OF TINSELTOWN -- CLOONEY FINALLY WEDS

Chelsea Clinton welcomed her first child, a daughter, with husband Marc Mezvinsky in New York City on Friday. The baby girl's name is Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky. Bill and Hillary Clinton said, "We are blessed, grateful, and so happy to be the grandparents of a beautiful girl."


Avril Lavigne celebrated her 30th birthday without her husband. This comes after rumors that the newylweds, who have been married a little over a year, are already on the outs. I'm all for love at first sight, but maybe Chad Kroeger shouldn't have proposed after only one month of dating.


In the October issue of GQ, Tom Selleck talks about aging, his dad and how he almost landed the role of Indiana Jones. I don't even like mustaches, but Tom Selleck is one sexy man. He makes 69 look damn good.


Robert Pattinson's new girlfriend has been on the receiving end of some serious hate. Singer FKA Twigs who is half-Jamaican, half-Spanish took to Twitter to let people know she was disgusted by their racist comments. Some people are just ignorant. Happiness and love know no color.


It's official. George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are married. The couple exchanged vows at the Canal Grande resort in Venice, Italy on Saturday. Clooney, 53, and Alamuddin, 36, were wed by Walter Veltroni, the former mayor of Rome. Clooney wore Armani. Rumors have been swirling that the bride wore Alexander McQueen. Some of the celebrity guests in attendance were Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Cindy Crawford, Bono, and Bill Murray.

I don't know about y'all, but I still can't believe he did it. Congrats to the happy couple!


And, last but not least, it's National Coffee Day. I had three cups this morning. How about you?

THE SCANDAL COLLECTION FOR THE LIMITED



Scandal fans, also known as Gladiators, have a strong affection for the show's main character. Olivia Pope is one bad ass lady. Ok, so maybe she was having an affair with the President. And now she's run away with a hot murderer. She often has wine and popcorn for dinner. But can we talk about her pantsuits and coats for a minute? Girlfriend has a killer wardrobe.

Actress Kerry Washington, costume designer Lyn Paolo and Elliot Staples from The Limited collaborated on a Scandal-inspired fashion line. Much like Olivia Pope's wardrobe, the line is filled with great suits, amazing dresses and fabulous coats. OH. MY. GAH. THE COATS!


Here are a few of the looks you can now purchase online or in store:















I'm impressed with The Limited's Scandal Collection. The pieces are classic and exactly like what Kerry wears on the show. I only wish the line wasn't so pricey. It'll take everything I've got not to splurge on a coat this winter though. The first one is calling my name.

PS -- SCANDAL STARTS TONIGHT!!!

FALL 2014 TV IS HERE!

Some say yesterday was the first day of fall. Some say today is the first day of fall. Technically, in the US, it was last night at 10:29 PM EDT. I can finally break out my hoodies, fleece leggings and Uggs without judgment. Ok. I lied. Most of you are judging me for wearing Uggs. I just don't care. They're both warm and comfortable. I win.

Fall is my favorite time of year and brings many things I love. One of them is the return of my favorite tv shows. Every year I add a few new shows. Sometimes I like them. Sometimes I don't. Here are the ones I'm adding to my DVR list this year.


Gotham // How to Get Away With Murder



Bad Judge // Gracepoint // The McCarthys


And these are the old shows I'm looking forward to the most:





What will you be watching this fall?

FRIENDS CELEBRATES 20TH ANNIVERSARY

It has been 20 years since Friends debuted on September 22, 1994. I seriously can't believe it's been that long. I guess it doesn't seem like a long time when you watch an episode or two five almost every single night. There's a million reasons why I love Friends. It starts with the amazing cast. Who knew six people could have such great chemistry? Most importantly, the clever writing stands the test of time. Every episode is not only funny, but still relevant. I will never ever ever tire of this show.

Here are a few of my favorite Friends moments.

















Happy Anniversary, Friends!

6 THINGS I WANT MORE THAN THE iPHONE 6

Apple released their newest iPhone today, the iPhone 6. I currently own an iPhone 5s. It's still in perfect physical condition. So, even though I'd love to have the latest and greatest iPhone, I can't justify spending the money to upgrade. And I really don't want to extend my current contract with C Spire. #CSpireSucks

Here are 6 things I'd rather buy than the iPhone 6:


pumps


chevron top


Katy Perry tickets


Breaking Bad: The Complete Series


Naked 2 Palette


sofa table


What would you rather buy than the iPhone 6?

MY STYLE ICON -- REESE WITHERSPOON

Who doesn't love Reese Witherspoon? She's a great actress, a mom and southern. She's also extremely relatable and has an effortless sense of style. I love that she always looks put together, but never overdone. She chooses versatile staple pieces and great accessories. Even when she's dressed down, she still manages to look fabulous.

If I could raid any celebrity closet, I think it would be hers.





















Tell me, who is your style icon?
