The BOB Cut: Why It’s Still The #1 Hair Obsession?

On how I spend my days these days, aside from living the hashtags in my life – #busybee #fuckoff #drankup #iaintneverbitchin – I tend to fantasise a LOT about a different world. It’s a world where there’s background music, where all mistakes turn to great stories, where it’s an all around summer, where we can eat all we want sans the triggering body issues, where the skin is flawless, the eyes are happy, the heart is wild, the brain works 100%, where hair grows right back with just one thought. Oh… how I’d love that. I’d swing in my hammock with a cool chopped bob, sipping on some alcohol, somewhere on a beach, in a white one-piece swimsuit, looking hotter than the sand after a diet of pizzas and pastas. Everything about the above is doable. Every single bit. Hell it’s been did, done, did.…

Autumn’s #1 LIPSTICK Trend: Mysterious DARK

Aside from a mix of sheer panic and a bit of that impossible to resist mystery and sex-appeal oozed by dark lipstick, the very thought of wearing maroon, dark red, purple, black lips in 2015-2016 Fall is beautiful and scary. The beauty trend that was driving my parents insane in the 90s, every time I’d sneak out the house in dead-dark-lips is having a major comeback for sometime now. We’ve already talked about dark lipstick in the cold season in this blogpost, but I somehow feel it’s never redundant to discuss more makeup, more beauty trends, more how we’d wear it, and if we’d do it. Besides, the dark lips trend is going nowhere, in fact it’s ON, more powerful than ever, in a way that’s more 90s mixed with a bit of 70s Jonathan Saunders kinda dark accents. It’s glam but dark. It’s high…

Hair-O-Scope: Tell Me Your Sign, I’ll Tell you Your Hair…

My little twinkle stars… when it comes to hair, and its many many styles and trends – it’s all written in the skies. Each hair has its own destiny, and though it may take billions of shapes, and sizes, and colours throughout its life, it will always feel and look best when it fulfils its destiny. Which lies in the stars. No. I did not just hit my head, nor am I drunk. Nor crazy. Well… that’s up for discussion. It’s summer, which means LEO season, which means my bday today of all days, which means I’m more prone to all these signs and stars and skies and fate things. To the un-savvy sartorial who only occasionally reads in the stars, the horoscope is just a big mess for amateurs with a penchant for daily drama. Ha! Whatever. For the rest of us it’s one…

Beach Waves HAIR: The #1 Summer Hairstyle Trend

When the going gets tough, aka any given Monday morning, just say to hell with it all and head to the beach. Right. If only it was that simple. What is simple though, is pretending we’re going to the beach. Whaaaaaaaa?! Miming beach looks in dead-centre town-lives, in busy mornings schedules that look like anything but the lives of beach friendly rich and famous – now why on Earth would you do that? Pretend you live by the ocean (beauty wise and all), when in fact you’re literally hitting your head against thousands of walls and concrete? Well… cause of the BEACH WAVES baby. And I ain’t talking about those motherfuckers we surf on better than Beyonce in her bathtub, but the waves in our hair. Which too pretend to be those of the sea. Hmm. I’m seeing a pattern here, but I will disregard…

‘I Woke Up Like This: FLAWLESS’

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carefree. All opinions are 100% mine. The fact that we all wake up flawless, with perfect curled eyelashes, amazing bed-hair, soft skin, feeling fresher than a green and orange juice altogether – goes without saying. Right? Well… let’s just say flawless is a state of mind and sprit. How we feel on the inside. Translating that to the human eyes and senses around us might require a few aids here and there. Kinda makes my mind wander to that ‘Sex and the City’ episode when Carrie Bradshaw told Big she needed to leave a few things over at his place because, figure this: ‘I do not look like this, when I wake up.’ Hairdryer or straightener, mascara, moisturiser, deodorant, daily liners. And that’s just to get her and any of us started. Looking fresh and effortless actually comes…

Lipgloss VESRSUS Lipstick: Should We Bring LIPGLOSS Back?

The X and Y versus-talk is never ever a winning battle, but in fashion as in life, it ain’t all about the destination or the result. Sometimes the journey, aka the talk is the whole point – the cake AND the cherry on top too. (great, now I’m craving for chocolate cake.) With that out of the way we can easily discuss LIPS trends for 2015.  We will not suck on bottles or what the hell that Kylie Jenner lip thing was about! Instead we will love our lips as they are and make them pretty with, here’s a thought: makeup. LIPGLOSS lost a lot of trend-fashion battles lately, no denying, BUT here’s a thought: are we sabotaging its comeback for the fear of the 2000s comeback? Lipgloss was the epitome of that era, which is also known as the worst era in fashion. So…

4 BANGS Hairstyles: MAJOR Hair Trend Alert For 2015

To BANG or not to BANG? That is the question on everyone’s lips this season. Well… it’s been on mine for a year now, ever since I’ve decided to be more adventurous HAIR wise. Now all I have to do is to just put this mind-decision into actual practice. We are talking HAIR TRENDS today, so don’t go out banging… your head against walls. If that’s what you thought I was talking about. Instead, let’s get chatty and serious about having BANGS. From blunt, full, wispy, to side-swept, retro, or curly — 2015 seems to be all about bangs. Would that have anything to do with the 70s trend, and the rocker slash boho chic looks taking over streets, retail chains and world wide web pages and blogs, I wonder? Uhhh… where do I place my bet on this one? 2015 seems to be a…

Is GRANNY HAIR Really The #1 Hair Trend Right Now?

No, I did not just hit my head, nor am I writing this drunk. I’ve actually never been more serious, and sober for that matter. GREY HAIR is a thing these days, and GRANNY GLAM just became a massive hair trend in 2015. Whaaaaaaaaa?! Are we loving it ladies? Yes, we are. Why? First of all cause it looks fabulous and second of all, for everything it actually stands for. For decades fashion has been throwing beauty stereotypes our way all centred around the idea of youth, as if being young is a choice and there are tons of immortals and beautiful vampires out there to whose looks we’re all dying to aspire. To think youth is beauty is normal, but to limit beauty to this concept is ridiculous. Millions of women well beyond the age of 50 or 60 look more stunning than millions…

Platinum Blonde Hair. Is It The New Hair Trend?

The fact that it’s even a question we ask ourselves in 2015, is enough of a sign that YES, platinum might just be the new hair thing this season. That, and also Kim Kardashian’s latest hair transformation. The girl just bleached her hair last week and went platinum blonde. If held the planet followed, I would’t be surprised. I wouldn’t though blame it all on Kim. Hello, Kanye. Anyway, leaving those two aside, I would very much dare say I myself had a lot to do with this new hair trend. Whaaaaaaa?! OK. Allow me now for the sake of, basically myself, to be slightly delusional. But honest. Those who know me, know, that last week right before Kim Kardashian went platinum I was seriously considering getting blonde highlights, and then, after stumbling on this photo below of Kate Moss, I was flirting A LOT…

Haircolors Talk & Trends: Blonde vs Brunette vs Red

Let’s set the record straight first: there is no such thing as the ultimate hair color, nor the best, nor the ‘one’ everyone should do, and personally I support hair experimenting more than anybody. Hell I’ve gone from super blonde to jet black, to red, and even green back in highschool. For me, as a girl who loves long hair (or is afraid to chop it off), experimenting with hair color is actually the furthest I go. It’s the easiest way to have fun with looks. Yet, if the age or the affinity for pink, green, blue hair is way past you, then we’re left with the classic colors: blonde, brunette, and red hair. Might seem so restrictive, but it’s not actually, as each and everyone of them has tones of shades (not to mention the highlights you can play with), from cool to…
