It’s been a while since I shared a “Hair Tutorial”, but my friend (and hair & make up artist) Abigail and I have decided to once again join forces (my hair, and her talent) and share with all of you how to get beautiful, fun, summer hair looks! Oh and we will also be sharing “Make Up tutorials” so stay tuned for those! We would like to bring you different ones on a weekly basis, so you have new ideas and ways to style your hair, and beautify yourself with make up tips! Feel free to ask for whatever tutorials you would like to see, if there is a specific hair style you’ve been dying to try but don’t know how to do it, just leave your comments, and we will try to make it happen;)! Hope you enjoy this Messy Pony Tail look, and let me know how it worked out for you…
What you need:
5 Simple Steps to the Messy Pony Tail style: My First trick & tip, is do not wash your hair beforehand, you want your hair to be not that clean, but also not super greasy, and even better if it is not brushed to get more of a messy effect!
STEP 1: Prep your hair with shine I love this new Toni & Guy Shine that we used on my hair, and spray your hair with Sebastian Shaper plus or any other working hair spray.
STEP 2: Part the hair in 5 parts. Create a rectangular part on top which will separate the front (bangs), the sides and back.
STEP 3: Grab the back part and make it into a ponytail, if you’d like you can take some of the hair on top of the back part and tease it to create extra volume.
STEP 4: Tease the top rectangular part by grabbing horizontal half inch parts each time, comb it back softly. On the sides, do the same.
STEP 5: Grab the hair on the back part and wrap it around the ponytail and pin it. Grab hair on each on the sides and also pin it around the ponytail.
VOILA! The key for this hairstyle is to be very free with it, and let it be messy!
This weekend was filled with sunshine, long walks, quality time with friends/family, and a beautiful dinner Sunday evening with my hubby! For this Sunday dinner date, I decided to wear my new Asos Maternity tube skirt, finally a tube skirt I can wear comfortably in this pregnancy and I absolutely love how tightly it wraps around my hips (basically squeezing everything in hehe)!
To give it a little edge I styled it with red accents, and my new Rachelle Celine stack of rings! I am in love with this local designer’s jewelry, her pieces are timeless, romantic, and subtle, the perfect elements to add the final touch to any look you put together… Dinner was filled with talks about the future, and when the baby arrives, fantasy trips we might or might not take together, but most importantly how exciting (and a bit terrifying) our near future is:)!
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and this year as every year it is about our amazing mother’s, but in a way I am already considering myself as a mother so it is that much more special to me! So I am sure you are all searching and researching and thinking of ways to surprise your moms, as well as your wives:) It can always be a little overwhelming finding the right gift for one of the most special person in our lives, which is why I am always on the look for sites or stores that offer us unique pieces, and a beautiful selection, but not overwhelming us with too many things! So when I found out about Uncommon Goods, I was truly excited, those of you who have been following me, by now you know how I love to support independent designers, and style my looks with unique pieces, and well simply find little gems that make me feel special, and that is exactly what you can find at Uncommon Goods.
They are based in Brooklyn, and their essence is all about giving designers a platform for creativity, and connecting those artists with us:) Most of their products are hand made here in the US, and their mission is to be environmentally friendly in everything from their own company to the materials used by the designers to create/handcraft their designs! So of course I had to get my hands on their Links of Love Necklace! And from this necklace I was inspired to create my Mother’s Day look, with this Raoul Primrose dress, and my Zara heels (who have been proven to be the most comfy heels in my pregnancy:)! Hope you like this look;)
The adventures of pregnancy continue in our daily routine, my hubby and me are trying to take it as easy as we can, enjoy every moment, kick, and emotions that come with this exciting time, as well as other issues that arise… One issue is traveling, where is safe or not safe to go, when could I travel, will I be comfortable, or not??? But at the same time it is all so new, and I have to adapt and adjust to the situations as they come up, and after all it’s only a few more months and then all the “sacrifices” will make sense, and will be MORE than worth it! Another issue is can I wear prints while pregnant??? The answer is HELL to the yea;) All I hear is restrictions, in what to eat or not, where to go or not, exercise, etc… But I will not take no for an answer when it comes to my personal style:) So when I saw Raoul’s new collection, inspired by artistic prints, I fell in LOVE! I have been a fan of Raoul’s designs and garments for a while, it’s always so easy to wear and casual yet feminine, my favorite combination! So I decided to go for this Wave print head to toe…
Por fin tengo el momento de escribiros en Español, y no solo en Ingles! Ya que estas ultimas semanas han sido un poco locas! Como ya habeis visto estoy mas que embarazada y posando con mis looks de pre-mama! Espero que os guste, y lo disfruteis tanto como yo;)! Aqui teneis mi ultimo look! Es de la nueva coleccion de Raoul! Cuando una se queda embarazada hay tantas “reglas” de que hacer, lo que no hay que comer, ejercicios que no se pueden hacer, etc… Pero en cuanto a nuestro estilo personal, creo que es importante poder crear looks, y vestirnos de la manera que nos hace sentir bien con nosotras mismas y con nuestro nuevo cuerpo! Disfrutarlo a tope, sin pensarnoslo demasiado;)! Espero que os guste este look…
