#OOTD (RED BERRY)

Happy Thursday!

It’s been a hot minute since I posted an outfit and this past weekend I attended my brothers wedding in Memphis which was amazing! But interestingly enough I actually picked up a dress far enough in advance which is so unlike me but this being my brothers wedding I wanted to take the stress out of last minute shopping and picked up this BCBG dress which was on sale for half the original price during the 4th of July weekend which was awesome!

BCBG no longer have their stores opened here in Toronto, so I took a chance ordering it online but it worked out great! the shipping to Toronto was fast and I didn’t have to deal with any issues with customs because they partnered up with border free so you know in advance what the total cost is before ordering with no surprises when the delivery man shows up. I checked the website today and they still have this dress available and an even better sale going on right now…… here is the link to  check out if you’re interested. I think it would be a great dress for a holiday party too!! Hope you like like it!

Have a wonderful evening and weekend!

PLAYING WITH REDS

Amy Before

 

I had the opportunity to play with this beautiful lady’s hair this past Tuesday.

Amy just walked in to the salon with a photo on her smart phone to show me what she wanted. At first I thought wait, are you sure you want to book an appointment for me to make your hair purple, red and copper all in the same day lol. It was a lot of fun creating this look on this beauty, and the great conversation and laughter through the process just gives me life.

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

SEXY BALAYAGE

 

 Happy Tuesday! Hope you had a great Easter…

Today’s post is the Beautiful Katya who I had the privilege to work on recently. I gave her balayage and added some layers and soft curls. She wanted to have the highlight frame her face so brought it further up to bring out her beautiful eyes. Let me know what you think!

LIFE UPDATE

I Know! I know! I know!

It’s been forever since my last post, and I’m not even going to try to justify why I haven’t been posting for so long other than the fact that so many changes in my life just took first priority and I didn’t want to keep pushing to post content that wasn’t to my standard. As you can see from my photo’s, I’ve been wearing my hair natural. I have not blow-dried, curled, flat-ironed or use any hot tools on it. Other than the change in color, and a good trim, it’s Just been wash and go. I decided to do that over the summer because it got so hot I couldn’t keep it in any protective style and constantly dealing with frizz and a losing battle to keep it straight. It took a bit of getting use to, but it’s been a liberating experience. So ya, that happened.

In other news, I went on a cruise!! It was my first, and I had the best time ever! Not only did I enjoy the fun times at sea but loved seeing Turks and Caicos, Curaçao, Dominican Republic and Aruba. My favourite stop was Curaçao. Something about the colors, the culture, the beautiful beach and the food that really had me dreaming. I definitely plan on going on more cruises in the future as a way to see the world.

I’ll resume blogging  again soon but with a bit more hair and beauty, share some of my work and of course my personal style as usual. Hope you’re enjoying the week so far!

#HOTD (The Big Tease)

The big tease (1) The big tease (2) The big tease (3) The big tease (4) Happy Friyayyy! Hope you had a wonderful week. I’m super excited about today’s post because it’s been a while since I did a hotd (hair of the day) post. As a cosmetologist and a teacher, I do this type of work on a daily basis so it’s hard for me to feel motivated to do it on my self simply because it feels more like work even though it really only took me 10 minutes to create this look once my hair was curled.  I simply teased the crown section of my hair, sprayed and pinned it in place.  Then from the sides, I brought a few pieces towards the back and pinned it to the bottom of the crown and finished it with hairspray and that was it. I like this type of looks for a semi formal events but also works perfect for the bride who doesn’t want a full up-do. Let me know what you think! 🙂

Happy Saturday! Hope your weekend is going great so far. I found this skirt a couple of months ago at F21 and been dying to pull a look with it so I’m glad it finally warmed up enough to wear it. Also, how amazing is this necklace? I was looking for a silver statement necklace for quite sometime but I kept seeing price tags of over forty dollars which just wasn’t working for me so I was so excited when I found this one at F21 for $12. I’m feeling super girly in this outfit today :). Let me what you think!

#OOTD ( OU SO DYNAMITE)

This Blouse is yet another piece I scored while I was out shopping a few weeks ago before my trip. It was on sale for 10 dollars which was impossible to pass. I didn’t even try it on because I knew it would be a great fit, and I had waited to pull a look with these Sirens pants I picked up over the holidays. I checked the website to see if they still had them but I didn’t see it on there so I linked all the pants they have. And how about these old Nine West Pumps that just keeps working really hard for me after 11 years! It tied this look together so well. Let me know what you think! 🙂

I barrel curled my hair and just rolled and pinned it section by section using bobby pins and hairspray. Hope you like it. 🙂

Happy Sunday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and Easter!. I had the luxury of a vacation in West Palm Beach last week and had all the intentions of blogging while I was away, but much to my surprise I realized I would be missing out on all the beautiful moments if I focused too much on photo’s so I decided to ditch my DSLR and enjoy the blessing of a vacation and celebrate love and family. I hope to take more vacation time in the future soon and take you along with me :). Enjoy the rest of your Weekend!

You can never go wrong with a blouse like this and skinny jeans. Sometime’s just keeping it simple and neutral is all you need for a casually dressed up look. Hope you’re having a wonderful Friday!
