Short & Wavy

This post will be short & sweet!

OUAI LA Blogger

Whenever I don’t have time to do my hair, I rely on this little guy to make it beautiful and wavy. For my hair length I spray about 4-5 times of OUAI product, then use my hands to style it and voilà! I get a fresher and more fun look. It’s specially convenient when I don’t have much time to get ready or when I need to retouch my hair mid-afternoon. You all know the struggle…

Plus I love that it leaves my hair soft and smells so nice! <3

I’ve been truly enjoying OUAI Spray that’s why I thought I would share. I plan on doing a post dedicated to the hair products I use and how I style it, but for now this is a sneak peak of one of my faves on the moment.

I’m sending lots of love!!

New Look for Summer!

There’s something about Summer that makes us all want a bit of change. Sometimes the goal is a more fit body, others is to adopt a new hobby under the sun and sometimes we just want a little makeover! You see I’ve worn my hair long for almost 10 years and I thought it was about time to try something new. So last week I decided to cut half of it off and I am loving it! I feel more light and fresh, it takes me literally half the time to get ready (which I’m sure my boyfriend appreciates) and I feel like a brand new Me!

If you follow me on Instagram you might have also seen I got eyelash extensions.  They are so long and full and most importantly so convenient! Most days I just get up, put on moisturizer/sunblock and I’m ready to go!

If any of you are looking for a new look, I would recommend taking it easy. For example, my hairstylist first cut half way to where I wanted and when we knew I would feel okay with the length, we kept cutting off more. She worked her way up slowly until we got right below the shoulders, which is the length I wanted and was so happy with it! Also I brought a ton of pictures of styles that I liked and went to someone I knew I could trust. It’s a big change for anyone but so worth the try!

What about you guys? Does anyone have any plans, goals or wishes for Summer that you are working on? I’d love to know!

As always thank you for reading,

The Silk Dress

You have probably seen the silk dress in every street style photo this season. It is the most comfortable and easy way to look chic! Never thought I would be saying that, literally. Because lets face it, usually looking chic involves a lot of work but with this slip on all problems are solved. You throw it on, add accessories and maybe layer with a jacket and you’re good to go! I paired mine with a cream blazer, my Gorjana jewellery and my favorite and most comfortable ankle booties <3 But you can wear it any way you like.. 90’s mood with a plain tee underneath, with a chunky  knit sweater to add more texture or on its own if Fall weather hasn’t come to your city yet. But the important thing is to try it! You will love it and want one in every color…

Fall Look Vol. 3

Hi guys!

      This past weekend I’ve been in and out of the hospital, haven’t been feeling so good. Buuut I have the most amazing friends who keep checking up on me and have been taking care of me so Im getting a lot better <3 However I am supposed to stay in bed for a few more days and rest so Im sorry in advance if Im not posting as much this week. I hope your guy’s week started off better than mine;) But anyways, I’ve been dying to show you this look from last week’s shoot…

I was going through my closet to find the perfect Fall Look and trying to mix it with my love for dresses. You know, something cute but weather appropriate. And last week I had picked out this gorgeous floral dress from Lucy Paris and I’ve been dying to wear it! The cut and detail of the dress has a very romantic vibe to it, you know very flirty and fun so to enhance that I decided to pair it with a piece that’s completely opposite, something that would contrast. Of course nothing does it better than a moto leather jacket, I added my black ankle boots and voila! My look is done;) Now as you know, I always go light on the accessories and only wear what I truly love. But lately I’ve been dying for The 2 Bandits collection. Their accessories have a bohemian vibe mixed with a vintage look so of course Im obsessed with them. This is the finished look, let me know what you think…
