BIG HAIR Volumized Curls Tutorial (Video)

Beauty | February 10, 2015

 


It’s Tuesday and BIG HAIR IS IN THE AIR! Today I’m sharing another request I got from you guys recently asking about this big curly hairstyle below. Scroll down to watch the hair tutorial video.

What I used – Shampoo/Conditioner/Serum: all from Dove’s Advanced Series // Dry oil: Bumble & Bumble // Volumizing Gel (light-weight): Aussie // Hairspray: Dove // Blow Dryer: T3  // Curling Wand: Eva NYC  // Round Brush: T3

 

I know you guys probably have tons of questions about the products I used. I will say that Dove’s Advanced Series products have yet to disappoint me. They seem to have one for all hair types. I’m noticing they are quickly selling out of a lot of their advanced collections. (The DRY SHAMPOO is amazing!) Also, some of you might be thrown off by the fact that I use a volumizing GEL for this look. The one I use is from Aussie and it is super light-weight.  I like the texture it creates in my hair.  If your hair has a life-less/flat texture I especially recommend you try this. I use a quarter size and it helps if you flip your hair upside down and apply it to all areas with a little more in the roots and scalp before blow drying.  (you can find it at Walmart for like $4!)

(Outfit Details) Shirt Dress: Daily Look // Bag: Zara (old, shop similar) // Sunglasses: Karen Walker // Heels: Shoedazzle (old, shop similar faves here + here)

 
This is officially the longest slash coolest button-up shirt dress OF ALLLLLL TIMEEEE. (Sorry, the Grammy’s were on yesterday and I still die for the classic Kanye quote. HA) Anywhoooo, I feel like the length of this dress sits perfectly on my 5’2” frame. It’s not easy being a shorty yawl!!!! I love how it has a tie around the waist which helps create shape around the waist area.
 
I’m heading to New York in 2 days!!! Let’s just say, I won’t be wearing open-toed wedges and breezy dresses. BURRRR! That doesn’t mean I’m not possibly taking this dress with me. You might just see it styled for the freezing-degree weather. Staaaay tuned!
 
Hope you all have an amazing week and kick butt!! I’m going to try to shoot and edit another Youtube video before I leave on Wednesday.

Trend Alert: The Oversized Turtleneck Sweater

The turtleneck sweater is taking over the streets of fashion…and my closet. I’ve been on the look out for quite some time now and am noticing more retailers introducing these oversized styles. Think: chunky-knitted sweater. Instantly the over-sized look adds a touch of laid-back cool to your outfit. Is it crazy that people here in Los Angeles (including myself below) are also rocking the trend? I’m seeing lighter fabric styles appropriate for the cali-weather but still – is that weird? ha In a couple of weeks when I head to NYC for fashion week, I’m hoping to rock a chunkier version for sure.

Channeling my inner Victoria Beckham style today! Call me a creeper but I can sit on Google all day and drool over her style pictures! She’s the perfect style-star for my Woman Crush Thursday (hehe) today. Let’s face it, no one does the classy, sexy, effortless look better than she does. She’s been doing it for years, and I decided to put myself up for the test since I’m such a fan.  This ruffled high-waisted pencil skirt screams Victoria so I knew dressing it down with a more casual top would be a perfect replica to VB’s style.

 

What do you think!? Am I totally Posh!? hah You don’t have to answer that.

Got a celeb crush? Please share below. I’m always looking for new celebrity styles to drool over! Have a great rest of the week!!!

The 21st Annual SAG Awards happened in LA Sunday night and I was sooo lucky (seriously pinch me) for getting to be a part of it. I joined Lo Bosworth and Marianna Hewitt as a social media corespondent for TNT. We got to opportunity to explore the entire Shrine Auditorium as well as cover behind the scenes moments from the red carpet. I seriously had the best time! I felt like a little girl in a candy store seeing all of my favorite actors and actresses up close and personal. Obviously, I tried to play it cool (yea right) and snapped a bunch of selfies and video moments that I can cherish forever. With all of the content I gathered, I decided to edit this cute little vlog for my youtube channel that shares some of my favorite moments from Sunday. My dress was Dior and I seriously never wanted to take it off. I’ll shut up now. Watch below!
 

 

What’s a red carpet without the fashion right? The biggest trend of the night I noticed was the color white. Some were a hit and others I wish I could white-out. ( I just had to with the pun there! lol) After seeing all the dresses in person, It was nice actually being able to make my decisions based off real life instead of after-pictures! Surprisingly none of picks are wearing white. I narrowed it down to my top 3 favorite looks below..

 

1. Lupita N’yongo – Before you possibly freak out..I have to say she looked breath-taking in person you guys! She can do a dress no wrong. She looked so tall and beautiful! (Fun story- I saw her walking out of the bathroom and I literally fan-girled.)

2.  Caitriona Balfe– This dress instantly caught my eye on the carpet. It fit her so perfectly. I’ll admit it had me saying, “Who is that chick!?” After this, I’ll never forget her name. She looked like an absolute star.

3. Julianne Moore – This girl was born to wear the color green this good. I love how she never does anything too crazy with the styles she wears on the carpet but she always takes color risks! My kind of girl!

Denim Love

Fashion | January 23, 2015

 

Happy Friday! As the seasons change and we age – there’s one thing that will never fade. My motto lately? When in doubt, go denim. My love for this fabric has grown over the years. There was a time however when I was so obsessed with patterned skirts and dresses that I never wore denim anything. I guess you can say I’m making up for lost times!

Dreaming of Spring | Sam Edelman

Lifestyle | January 21, 2015

 

It may not technically be spring but lately in California it definitely feels like it. My wardrobe has totally transitioned already from fall/winter to spring/summer. Too soon? I’ve noticed that it’s never a bad idea to go with a midi skirt. It’s a longer style skirt so you can even wear it during the colder seasons to stay styling! I did my research and have learned it’s a classic trend that truly started to re-blossom over the past few years. There are countless colors, styles and prints if you’re a midi-skirt-addict. I think if you are a newbie to this trend (like me) than go with a black skirt that you can style a million times over like this one from Sam Edelman.

I decided to go with the Cali flow and pair mine with a cute crop-top to keep things fresh and flirty. The style of this one is perfect because it’s not too tight which I like. :)

 

Lastly, how stunning are these pointed-toe heels? I saw them at the Sam Edelman store in Beverly Hills and instantly fell in love. Like I kind of started gasping for air. There’s something about a shiny nude statement pump that gets me every time. Bling Bling.

 

What trend(s) are you guys excited to rock this spring/summer?

Strapless in Stripes

Lifestyle | January 18, 2015

 

Strapless in stripes today! There’s no doubt after sharing this post today that I am more than ready for spring to arrive thanks to this little striped Cameo dress.  Real talk, I’ve never been a huge “tube-top” dress kind of gal (my girls can’t hang if ya know what I’m sayin’) but, there’s just something so special about the way this particular dress fits. I was excited to wear it out last week since we’ve been experiencing beautiful weather in LA right now. It’s crazy to think how chilly it is around the globe. I’m starting to prep for NYC in a few weeks and I know it’s going to be colddddddddd! #BURRR However, I think this dress would also look super cute for the winter styled with maybe a pair of hosiery, booties and a leather jacket? I may have to take it with me and see.

I’m glad I finally found the perfect outfit to wear these bow-strap heels. I’ve had them for a few months now but haven’t really taken them out on the town. I do this a lot with my new shoes. LOL It’s like you wait for the perfect shoe moment to give them the respect that they deserve! I love how these will instantly add a feminine touch to compliment/accessorize any look.

 

Before I go, I just want to thank all of you – my loyal blog readers, who have been supporting me on my new Youtube adventure! I’m having so much fun with it and it’s been really nice hearing all your feedback and tips. Keep them coming! It’s been a learning curve having to re-focus and dedicate more of my time into but I’m very excited nonetheless. Yay! Stay tuneddddd for more videos coming atchya every week. Woo!
