This Is the Best Way to Watch Any Awards Show
Pamper yourself AND watch red carpet fashion all at once!
If you're an awards show/pop-culture fanatic like me, then you'll relate to this statement: Nothing comes between me and the television when the Emmys, Oscars or Grammys air. Nothing. To affirm this point, I put on my pajamas early in the evening, signaling that I will not be leaving the house for the rest of the night.
But the best part about awards night? Doing two of my favorite things at once: watching red carpet coverage and treating myself to the ultimate pampering sesh.
So, for all of you celebrity-obsessed, fashion lovers out there, join me by grabbing a drink, opening your social media app of choice and settling in for a night of relaxation, glitzy dresses and witty commentary from the comedic host.

Or two... or three... or five. These are so pretty they'll blend into your decor.
Apply face mask.
Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and Peach & Lilly offer affordable options from trusted French, American and Korean retailers. A facial oil or serum is also a great way to treat tired, dehydrated, dull skin.
Paint nails color of your choice.
Erin considers her collection of colorful nail polish bottles almost like sculpture or art. To do them justice visually, she keeps them on display in a mirrored tray above the commode. The blogger notes, "It may be cliché to say this, but everything looks better in a tray. Once contained, pieces instantly take on an orderly look."
No matter what the season, shimmering navy or bright red always look good. Or try one of this season's trending colors.
Treat yourself to popcorn...
Salted caramel popcorn, anyone? Or maybe savory flavors are more your style. The video below has even MORE fun topping ideas. If you're hosting a few friends, set up a popcorn bar to give guests options.
And your favorite cocktail.
This refreshing grapefruit gin and tonic is calling my name. Watch the video to see how to make it.
