Brigitte Bardot inspired NYE look

It goes without saying that we all feel at our comfort zone when wearing black, which is why I have an abundance of black dresses, specifically from my new obsession line Wai Ming! I am not the typical dress girly girl, you will usually find me in denim, or harem pants, cropped tops, that’s my usual, but I do love to wear dresses on special occasions such as NYE! For this NYE look I was inspired by one of my style icons, Brigitte Bardot, because just like Wai Ming’s designer Emily, I am inspired by the French/Parisian style! Bardot’s iconic full on volume hair, her thick cat eye, and her femme fatale attitude (which I am still far away from…) made her irresistably enviable and inspirational! So when I first wore this Shaz dress, it instantly gave me that confidence, with it’s structured shape yet flowy feel, and that element of sneak peak on the neck and back detail makes it sexy yet classy! So voila mes amie, I hope you like the video (hopefully it gets you in the party mode;), and my NYE inspired look… Oh please stay tuned for my Brigitte Bardot Hair & Cat Eye Tutorial coming soon!

Casi todas nos sentimos más comodas vistiendonos de negro, especialmente en invierno! Por eso tengo una colección de vestidos negros, especialmente de la marca Wai Ming mi nueva obsesión (como ya os conte)! Y sus vestidos (prendas) tienen esa perfecta combinación entre sofisticado y sexy! Este look fue totalmente inspirado por Brigitte Bardot, la definicion de estilo Parisiano ! Espero que os guste, y no os perdáis mi tutorial de Bardot Hair & Cat Eye, pronto en el blog!

Fall Make Up Tutorial

Fall is finally upon us, and while most of us are preparing our wardrobes some of us are also thinking of fun ways to change up our Make Up to welcome this beautiful season! Once again I have teamed up with a professional make up artist Seema Khanna, so she can teach us the best tricks to get a natural smokey eye, tricks for the perfect eye liner, and an instant face lift with make up secrets;) But before we get into all the make up tricks she mentions the most important factor, getting your skin ready with the right toner and face cream! For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you are more than well aware of my profound love and loyalty for skincare brands that work for my sensitive skin, and specifically Murad Skincares! In this video  used the Murad Daily cleansing foam, their Balancing Moisturizer SPF15, and their Instant Radiance Eye Cream, which are my favorite products to keep my skin clean, glowing and moisturized this Fall!

How much denim is too much denim? It’s NEVER too much, that’s right! Especially when  you have such beautiful jewelry pieces to accentuate the look even more so. I found out about Tiffany Kunz browsing around Instagram, and fell head over heels with her designs, inspirations and bold pieces! Ever since I cannot take her jewelry off, I travelled all the way to Spain with them, and literally every other person in the street would stop to ask me where I got my necklace, or the ring:) Who doesn’t love wearing pieces that leaves everyone else wondering and in awe? I know I do! All in all this look is to show you how you can take something as simple as a denim on denim look, but transform it to a bit of an edgier and bolder look by highlighted accessory pieces, and cool ready for fall booties! Hope you like this…


Haya checks out Target’s Beauty Concierge

How many times have you found yourself wandering the Beauty aisle at Target overwhelmed by their selection, and basically clueless as to what skincare fits your complexion to perfection? I know I have endless times (think of the Tasmanian devil twirling around;)! Which is whyTarget has decided to offer us a hand:)! How you might ask? Simply by adding a Beauty Concierge in many of their store locations, and lucky for me one of their chosen locations is the Columbia Heights store across my home:)! The beauty concierge is there to help you find that eye cream that will work wonders, that perfect lipstick for your skin tone, or that hair care line that you never knew was the miracle your hair has been waiting for! NO he/she is not a make up artist, nor a hair dresser, but a trained professional and beauty passionate, there to help your shopping experience be easier and faster! He/she will advise you on the new trends, and give you insider tips!

What products did I pick out?Umberto’s pre shampoo treatmentAhava body scrub,La Roche sun protection, and Covergirl’s pastel nail polish! Oh and usually you will find me at Target in my sweaty gym gear;) But for this occasion I chose a white on white look, blouse by Zara, white denim by Closed, and my favorite heels by Shoedazzle!

Aquí tenéis mi ultimo video, donde os de compras en Target, para que podáis ver como me ayuda el Beauty Concierge a encontrar los productos de belleza que me faltaban este verano! Si tenéis un Target cerca a que esperais? Ir de compras y el Beauty Concierge os ayudara a encontrar esa crema de ojos que necesitáis, el maquillaje que mejor se aplica a vuestra piel, o el champú que mas le conviene a vuestro cabello!

Summer in The City

How many times have you wondered what to wear in this unbearable city heat and humidity? I know I do almost every day, and if I could I would walk around in a bikini, but we all know that’s not happening! So the closest thing to wearing beach wear in the city is this gorgeous cover up by Zinke, the moment I saw this Zoe Dress on their site, I knew I had to own it! I loved taking this beach look into the streets of DC, by styling it with a Noelle Et Filles bagBCBG purple suede wedges, Giant Lion rings and Zara sunnies. I hope you enjoy this video look, and if you do, go ahead and subscribe to my GoodGoodGorgeous YouTube Channel.
