I had been anticipating watching the Oscars for weeks and when it was finally time I couldn't even stay awake to watch the entire show. I don't know if I was bored or just tired, but staying awake for more than half of it didn't happen. As for my favorite looks of the night, Margot Robbie, Anna Kendrick, and Sienna Miller were probably my top three. (last year's favorite looks here)

I love Miranda Kerr so I also wanted to share her look from the Vanity Fair party. Gorgeous, and another bold red lip well done.
I recently tried out Benefit's new mascara, Roller Lash and it was just okay. Usually I stick with my Lancome but when I saw the lash curling claims of this one I wanted to try it out. I actually really liked the brush and it was lengthening and did a really good job separating my lashes.

In other exciting news from the week, my second Rocksbox arrived! I was kind of shocked at how fast the turn around time was between boxes. I sent my first box back on a Wednesday and by Thursday (the next day) it had already been received and my next box was ready to be shipped out (I got it the next Monday).
Two of the pieces I received were ones I had put on my wish list, but just like my last box, it was the piece I didn't pick out that was my absolute favorite!
1. Perry Street | mindy necklace (the statement piece): I loved the chain detailing, but the jeweled pendant was WAY larger than I was expecting, and the chain was much longer. Misconceptions aside, it's still a really pretty, fun piece & I love the colors in it.
2. Gorjana | luna layer necklace (photo on the right): I was thrilled to get this dainty Gorjana piece after how much I loved the first one. This was another piece that I had on my wish list, but it was different than I was expecting in person. I didn't notice the little jewel details on the half circle, but I actually really like them.
3. Margaret Elizabeth | druzy teardrop: This is hands down my favorite piece I've received yet. The length is perfect, I love the small detailing on the chain, and the druzy is gorgeous. I plan on wearing this basically every single day until I'm ready to send this set back. The picture doesn't do it justice!

I've realized the best way to see what pieces you want to add to your wish list is by searching the hashtags on instagram. That way you can see pieces in "real life" to get a better idea of the sizing.
This was a bit of a hodge podge of a post but I'm linking up with Joey and Annie.
