  1. Timotei Golden Highlights Shampoo & Conditioner

timotei shampoo timotei conditioner

Timotei Golden Highlights Shampoo & Conditioner with Jericho Rose is infused with natural extract of camomile flower, which is known to have anti-oxidant and moisturizing properties. It’s for blonde or highlighted hair. It contains 100% natural extracts & o% parabens. This shampoo & conditioner formula brings out your golden highlights to reveal the true shine and beauty of blonde hair.

During my use of the shampoo & conditioner my hair felt very weightless & light. The shampoo is very gentle on the hair & scalp. I really loved that it does brighten up your hair & shows off your natural highlights. This product is great in my circumstance because I have never chemically treated my hair & I have natural highlights. During the summer my hair gets almost platinum blonde & during the winter months I have to struggle with my roots growing back a darker blonde – basically looks like I have ombre done. So during the time I’ve used this product it has helped lighten up my roots a bit. I see a difference. Another awesome thing was that my hair didn’t feel or look oily throughout the day. The shampoo & conditioner smells wonderful, gives off a nice shine, makes my roots lift up because of how weightless it is. I recommend this product to my natural & color treated blonde lady friends! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

2. Bielenda Professional Formula Oxygenating & Moisturizing Enzyme Mask Revitalizing Effect

bielenda mask

The Bielenda Oxygenating & Moisturizing Enzyme Mask is a highly effective & innovative oxygenating & moisturizing enzyme mask for all types of skin. It’s created for individuals of all ages. There was a specific task when this mask was created – to achieve results that compared to revitalizing treatments done by professional beauticians. This mask improves the most tired and insufficiently oxygenated skin – it deeply moisturizes, revitalizes the skin, improves blood circulation, improves elasticity, minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, it restores the skin’s vitality & radiance, & also removes signs of stress & fatigue. After one use you truly feel a difference on your skin. This product should be applied twice a week, you apply the mask on your face, your neck & your décolleté. You leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes until your skin absorbs it. After that you don’t wash off the excess, you just massage it into your skin in a circular motion. It truly did help my skin feel hydrated & oxygenated. My skin looks healthy, relieved of fatigue & stress, feels smooth & looks radiant. I will be continuing my use of this product for sure. This is another product I recommend to all of you & if this one doesn’t suit you they have many other to choose from on their website.
My skin is loving this mask, can’t you tell? 🙂

Fun & Flowy <3

Happy Monday Everyone! 🙂

Today’s look is all about the 4 F’s! ♥ Fun, Flowy, Feminine and Fantastic! ♥ This easy breezy skirt and top are perfect for the summer. When it’s hot outside, it’s best to wear clothing that’s loose, light and comfortable while still looking chic. Personally, I think every female should have a maxi skirt in her closet. Maxi skirts are a necessity for the summer. It gives off a fresh look. You can keep this outfit simple or add some of your own personal touches. Most of us women are obsessed with shoes so make sure to pair the maxi skirt with a perfect set of heels. Accessories that will make this look stand out more are heels, a purse and jewelry since the outfit is more casual and simple. This type of outfit works with women of every age.

Bitter & Sweet <3

IMG_1199

Hello Lovely People! 🙂 ♥ I hope you’re all having a great week!

Today’s look is based off of Moschino’s Short Sleeve Dress.

I want to show all of you that just because something is expensive doesn’t mean it’s always better. I found this similar Bitter Sweet Dress from Necessary Clothing. It also looks great and has the same style/fit. The only thing it’s missing is the “Designer Name”.  Many of us need to remember that it’s not what you wear BUT how you wear it.  So many people dress in high end designer clothing from head to toe but only a few of them have actual style. Remember that there is no price tag on style.

This is a fun graphic dress! The shoulder cut outs are a great feature as well. I find it very comfortable, you can wear it more dressed up or if you’re not in the mood for that, dress it down with some ankle boots. Enjoy the pictures! 🙂

Hair Tips <3

Hello Everyone! 🙂

Whether you have long hair, short hair, straight or curly, dry or oily hair don’t you ever wonder if you’re taking care of your precious hair the right way? Us girls need to know/learn some hair tips so we can keep our hair healthy.

hair

  1. Make sure to trim your ends (split ends) every 3-4 months. This is an essential part to get beautiful and healthy hair because it removes the damage from your length and makes it look alive.
  2. Since your hair is most fragile when wet, try to avoid excessively brushing it until it’s mostly dry. This will help avoid breakage.
  3. Find a shampoo that is best for your hair type. It’s essential in order to have healthy, manageable, strong and shiny hair everyday. Some shampoos lather your hair up too much and then leave build-up in your hair which makes it look greasy and dirty.
  4. After you condition, make sure to rinse your hair with cold water. By doing so you seal the cuticle which makes it harder for moisture to enter your hair. This stops the frizz! It actually works ladies! I mostly do this during the winter.
  5. Once you get out of the shower, automatically squeeze out any excess water and let your hair air dry for about 10 minutes before you blow dry. If you wrap your wet strands of hair in a towel this WILL cause your hair to be frizzy.
  6. Stop using bad brushes that just rip out your hair and cause breakage. I found a perfect brush for myself which I believe you should all try. It’s called The Tangle Tamer by Ti Style. It’s “professionally designed to prevent the usual pulling and snagging you get from a normal brush. Perfect for those early morning brushing episodes.” It truly works wonders. I’ve compared my old brush to this one and there is a significant difference in the amount of hair that’s pulled out. I recommend it to everyone. IMG_7810
  7. For the people who don’t have that much time in the morning to wash and style their hair, there is always dry shampoo. This really works wonders. If you need a quick refresh and have no time to shampoo use this product, it’s really the go to product. A great bonus is that it gives your hair volume! Another method is using baby powder but you have to make sure you rub it in so your hair doesn’t look white.         psssssst-dry-shampoo
  8. For those that use blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons every day make sure to apply styling products that protect your hair against heat damage. Also apply the product 5 to 10 minutes beforehand for it to fully absorb into your hair strands so you get the full effect.
  9. If you are one of those people that gets oily and greasy hair easily then avoid directly conditioning your roots. Just condition your hair from your ear down to your ends for the best result.
  10. And like I said in my last post don’t forget to try using Manuka Honey it will moisturize, condition, and protect your hair!

Maxi Skirt <3

Happy Friday Everyone! 🙂 The weekend is finally here! I’m beyond thrilled to just enjoy myself and relax. Hopefully I will also get a chance to go to the beach to catch a tan!

I’m so excited that we officially have consistent summer weather. This is my absolute favorite season. I love experimenting with different pieces of clothing. For this look I took out this fabulous maxi skirt from Kora Rae. One word for this skirt → perfection. I must say that this skirt has my name written all over it. The colors, flow and style of this skirt are pure perfection. The slits on the sides of the skirt make it very fun and flirty. It’s a top favorite of mine for this summer. ♥

Coral & Lace <3

Image

Hello 🙂 Happy Tuesday Everyone! Hope all of you are having a great week so far! ❤

I’m beyond thrilled to share with all of you the outfit I wore for Father’s Day. This look is all about coral & lace. I truly think coral is a perfect color for the summer. It shows off your tan perfectly, which is always a plus. Coral is certainly a color of choice for spring/summer fashion. It’s a color that’s full of life. And who doesn’t love lace – especially on a pair of shorts! Lace is very feminine & has a romantic feel to it. Lace is versatile, it also can easily make a transition from a day time to night time look. It’s a timeless piece which can be used as an overall look or simply just as an accent.

This fun & flirty outfit would be perfect for a date with a special guy or just going out with your girls to go shopping or to grab some drinks. If you want to make the look more casual then you can always wear sandals or flats as well. I personally think wedges look amazing! 🙂 The greatest part about this whole look is that it’s inexpensive! Everyone needs to remember that you don’t need to buy high end clothing to look good. If you have great fashion sense you can put together an amazing outfit by just buying from stores like Zara, H&M, Forever 21, Express, Necessary Clothing, TopShop, Nasty Gal, etc. Don’t have the mindset that if you spend more money on an article of clothing, it must be better because that’s not true.

Enjoy my pictures!

Especially for my fellow Blonde Bombshells <3

Hello Beauties! 🙂

I’m on to my next post which is strictly about BLONDES! People always ask me about my hair & how I get it to be so blonde. Whenever I let people know that I have NEVER dyed or highlighted my hair they are in complete shock. Ever since I was younger I would always ask my mom to go with me to the hair salon so I could get my hair lighter but her answer was always NO! I was always told by mom & hairdressers not to mess with my hair because I have natural highlights from the sun. Now that I think back to that I am SO HAPPY that I listened to them.

I get many compliments about the color and texture of my hair which usually gets followed by questions regarding what products I use. So this is a perfect time to share with all of you what I think works best. Whether you were born with blonde hair or you’ve decided to get it done at the salon, blonde locks require a certain routine to maintain them.

Let’s start off with shampoo’s & conditioners:

  • In my opinion, John Frieda has very good products for various types of blondes. Whether it has to do with lightening, renewing your color, strengthening the hair for triple breakage protection, or preserving the color (mostly for color treated blondes)- they all work wonders.
  • AVEDA also has a great shampoo and conditioner to enhance the blonde color.
  • Klorane has a Camomile shampoo and conditioner for blonde highlights.
  • For the platinum blondes, Paul Mitchell has a shampoo for you.
  • The RedKen used to have the Blonde Glam shampoo but they discontinued it unfortunately. The new product is Blonde Idol Sulfate-Free shampoo. It’s a daily cleansing shampoo for all types of blondes.

Besides the shampoos & conditioners you can also use John Frieda’s Go Blonder Lightening Spray. I use this product mostly during the winter when I’m not able to be in the sun and get my natural highlights. I use it just at the roots to get rid of the darker blonde color. You just spray the product and use a blow dryer, it’s very simple & you see instant results. Obviously if you want your hair very light you’ll have to use it 3-4 times. Also during the summer it’s perfect for when you are at the beach. You can just spray your hair and lay out in the sun catching a tan. The results will be amazing, I guarantee it. There is also a cheaper version which works well – Sun In Lightening Spray which can be found in any convenience store/pharmacy like CVS, Rite Aid, Wallgreens, etc. If you are the type of person that doesn’t like to use sprays and rather try a more natural route then you can always use lemon juice. It works the same way.

Lastly, another great product is It’s a 10 Miracle Leave In for Blondes. It meets the needs of natural & color treated blondes. It tones your hair color, adds shine, reduces fading & extends the vibrancy, detangles & defrizzes & is also a UV protectant.

I truly hope this will help my fellow blonde bombshells, especially since it’s the summer & you all want to show off your beautiful blonde locks! And remember everything I’ve posted is my personal opinion. Make sure to leave me comments & let me know what you think! I’ll love to hear your feedback! 🙂 Have a wonderful day!

Remember ladies,
