Floral Prints and Kate Spade

photo 1
Today is one of those days where I don’t feel comfortable unless if I’m in a nice loose dress. This dress from Forever 21, reminds me of the oh so popular Brandy Melville dress, but for half the price.

Since today is all about comfort, I kept the accessories minimal by only wearing my gold Michael Kors watch. I also decided to tote around my very lovely Kate Spade backback, purses are so over rated.

Surprise! This dress is backless, I don’t know what it is, but this summer I am loving anything with a low cut back. It’s perfect to show off my Victoria Secret lace strappy bra.

Even though winter has passed, it’s never too late for these Guess booties.

POP of Red

Hello Dolls! Let’s jump start our summer with a really pretty neutral sage  colored jumpsuit by Cloth & Stone. I got this lovely number for half the price at TJ Max (similar one here)

I love this jumpsuit because of the open back, perfect for a sunny day in south florida.

When wearing neutrals, I love adding a pop of color using accessories. I purchased my red gold combo all at Nordstroms.

Paired with wedges that are Steve Madden, and you have a perfect outfit for a casual lunch or dinner. How do you guys pop your color?

Yesterday was the last day of Sunfest, which is Florida’s largest waterfront music and art festival. Held annually in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida. I wore this fringe combo that is perfect for a hot day of walking around.

Facetune
I kept my outfit pretty basic with lace shorts from Urban and a fringe top from Forever21. What do you guys think about fringe and lace together?

Instead of a purse I find having a backpack is much more easier/practical for a festival, I thrift this leather backpack from my sisters closet. LOL

For accessories, you guessed it are all from Forever21

These are no Chanel espadrilles, but they are supper cute and affordable. I got these from H&M and surprisingly they are comfortable. I was walking all day in the hot sun and I am blisters free my friends.

Hello my dolls! It’s been a while since my last post. I apologize, but I’m back and I have to share a significant change in my life. I recently just got hair extensions! I want to blog about them because they are not your ordinary clip-on extensions. They are tape-ins, made by Hotheads Hair Extensions . What they make such a thing?? Yes and warning they are addicting and I do not know what I was doing before them.

Check out my Before & After :

image

As your guys know I am growing out my hair so I wanted something that was going to be less damaging to my natural hair. Hotheads are a no heat, no tools application. You do have to go to the salon to get them put in. I recommend my hair stylist Hailee, she is amazing at matching real hair to the extension hair, you literally can’t tell the difference.

These hair extensions are reasonably priced too, especially since the durability of these extensions is amazing compared to other extensions. Hotheads can be reapplied up to three times with the durations of 8 to 10 weeks of wear from each application and the hair is supposed to feel and look amazing.

All of this sounds awesome, but there is a downside. There is much work in taking care of your hair extensions so they will last the 8-10 weeks. Side note, there are different types of hair extensions for people with different lifestyles. For example, if you are a low maintenance girl, clip-on extension will be your best bet since you could remove them that night if you wanted to. Where as tap-ins or protein bonds extensions you have to have your stylist remove them.

Some Do’s and Don’t are:

1) Don’t let the extensions air dry or throw them up in a ponytail while the hair is still wet. This will cause for the extensions to pull and slip out way before the 8-10 weeks.

2) Don’t use conditioner on your roots because this will cause slippage, as well.

3) Do blow out your hair after each wash

4) Do use conditioner and leave in on the ends of your hair for the extensions are dead hair therefore they need more nourishment than normal (just be careful on letting the conditioner touching the tape)

Jumper- Forever21
Sandals-Charlotte Russe
Jewelry- H&M

I think I covered everything about these extensions, it’s a lot of information to take in. If you have any questions let me know in the comment below!

Please check out my friend/stylist Hailee Martin website she does such amazing job with hair and makeup! www.haileemartin.com 

How do you feel about long hair?

Until next time, XOXO!

Howdy everyone! How were your holidays?

It is a new year and that means new beginnings. This year, I want to concentrate on something simple and that is to keep my hair healthy. I’ve been trying to grow out my hair for years now, but because of breakage it has been hard to do so.  If ones hair has breakage, you are well aware of how hard it is to grow out your hair. Wondering on how I am going to attempt this.

Here is a list of things 3 problems that can be damaging to the hair:  thermally, chemically, and physically. Thermal and chemical are commonly known as, too much heat tools and too much bleaching or coloring the hair. Physically, what does that mean? Literally means physical breakage by aggressive combing and using rubber bands to keep  hair pulled up.

So this year I am going to cut back on the thermal tools and over highlighting my hair :( A couple post back I talked about a company called 6Dhairties. [Click here to see post] Wah La! These hair ties are the answer to prevent further damage to hair from rubber bands. These hair ties are not only fashionable on your wrist but non-damaging and non-bending to the hair, as well.

I finally got my hair ties in, and they are so adorbs! Check them out!

Hey guys so it’s been a month since the new H&M store was open. Located downtown, city place in West Palm Beach. I recently went to check it out and I left with this all black ensemble.  I thought all prices were reasonable, for quality of the clothes. The sweater is super comfy, but the pleather leggings are hard to get into. I expected that though with pleather lol. What do you guys think about H&M?
