Keeping it Neutral

IMG_3076

Hello Friends! Hope all is well with you. 🙂

Everything has been going great on my end. We are still in the process of buying our first home. News regarding that should get back to us shortly – maybe this week or next. This week would be absolutely amazing though since my birthday is tomorrow! But you can’t rush these type of things so we have to patiently wait. I’ll keep you posted…

Besides that, we’ve just been hanging out and trying to get our mind off things. This past weekend we left CT and took a drive to NYC for the night and hung out at my house. I love coming back to NYC, it’s my favorite place to be. I’m a true city girl and I just love the vibe I get whenever I’m here. Once I get on the White stone Bridge & see that city view I feel so ecstatic.

We spent Sunday Funday in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. My mom, my boyfriend & I went to eat at our favorite polish restaurant Karczma  – it’s traditional decor resembles an old country farmhouse that makes you feel like you are in Poland. The old polish folk music, waitresses dressed in traditional folk dresses and traditional polish food make it an unforgettable journey back in time. I recommend you all to try this restaurant out whenever you come to NY, I’m sure you won’t regret it. Afterwards, to get rid of our sweet tooth we went to Fortunato Brothers Cafe & Pasticceria, which is one of the best bakeries in Brooklyn. The day was perfect.

With this look I figured I’d keep it neutral. The dress/tunic was very comfortable and perfect for a sunny fall day. If you are worried that it will be too short for you, just wear some shorts underneath. Tunics are mean to fit loose, not snug. There are many types of tunics for women which can be different style, lengths and shapes. The trick is to pick the one that best flatters your body type. Some may have an empire waistline while others flow straight. Adding a belt is always a great idea. I usually put the belt on my hips – that’s where I think it looks best. I paired this outfit with my Nine West open toed booties which I absolutely love.

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!

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,
