Taking It Easy...

Happy Friday, lovelies! What do you all have on tap this weekend? Mine? Well it's basically going to be a lazy one. Lots of sleeping, pampering & lounging while counting down to the grand finale, The Academy Awards, on Sunday night.

I can't wait for them this year! And it's for reasons other than style stalking, although I will definitely be tuning in for that as well. We made a pact with some friends to see every film up for Best Picture and we actually did it! I just squeezed in the last one, Winter's Bone, last night. Overall I think my favorite is The King's Speech but I did also love The Fighter. It's a close second in my mind.

How bout you guys? Did you catch all the Best Picture nominees? What was your favorite? Are you going to be tuning into the Oscars on Sunday night?

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! xoxo

"Taling it easy this weekend indeed!" - A sensible way to spend the weekend. A warm and relaxing bath, a spot of pampering, a nice supper, and early to bed, lots of sleep and rest - so good for the soul, too, enjoy!

Katie said...

Taylor said...

I can't wait either!!! And I am in agreeing with you the Kings Speech was GREAT!!!! Maybe cooking a fancy home cooked meal - who knows (I have a red wine risotto recipe I've been dying to try!!!)

Hope yours turns out great!!!

That looks like the most perfect bedroom ever.

I plan to be rather busy this weekend if I can force myself out of this lazy routine I've been in this week. I have some work I would like to get done for the office and I want to rearrange some furniture and at home.

I really need to see "The Kings Speech." I'm so behind on everything.

I'm cheering for the King's Speech(one of my faves). I'm definitely looking forward to the Award show and trying to take it easy:-). Have a lazy weekend! XX

Haute World said...

Oooh, I wouldn't mind lounging in that big bed! I won't be watching the Awards (the time difference make it difficult), but I'm rooting for Black Swan, The King's Speech and Inception. I haven't watched The Fighter yet, but really want to. Have a lovely weekend!

Allison {Live Love Small} said...

pretty images! i didn't get around to seeing all of the movies but look forward to the show and the red carpet!

Christel @ Captivated by image said...

Would love a relaxing and pampering weekend too! I just saw The King's Speech (amazing) and yesterday The Fighter, I'm still not sure what the best movie should be in my opinion... Wish I could watch the Red Carpet Sunday eve, but one: it's not aired on the regular channels here and second it's in the middle of the night. So I'll do the jawdropping work first thing Monday morning online;) Enjoy!!

The October Issue said...

I'm definitely taking it easy today,especially since its raining.

Dancing Branflake said...

I don't watch movies but I always love hearing about the fashions the next day. And James Franco is someone I gush about all the time.

Hi Dawn,

I always enjoy watching the Oscars and see who wins and what everyone is wearing.
As for me, my family and I went for a swim at the sea, so that was nice and relaxing and came home and had a BBQ.

Have a lovely weekend, dear friend

Just a couple of hours away!:) I haven't managed to see all the movies, but I finally saw The King's Speech today and I loved it. I'll be tuning in a bit later for all the glamour on the red carpet and the winners of course. :)

hope that you enjoyed your weekend and the oscars, especially the fashions!

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Hope you had a great weekend! I enjoyed the Oscars very much! I enjoyed reading your tweets about what fashion you did or didn't like. There was definitely some real amazing gowns this year! I have yet to see all the movies that were up for best picture. I guess better late than never to see all of them!
