Fall'n over this



Today I'm bringing you a pre-Fall look I created with a mixture of my favorite pieces and some new ones from Shein. I wanted to make the skirt the focus and by wearing it with a grey turtle neck and plaid blazer it dresses it down quite a bit making it into a perfect look during this season and comfortable enough to wear during the day or night. I love mixing pieces that don't necessarily go together, the faux leather skirt with sneakers gives it a fresh and modern feel and it has become one of my favorite combos lately.

NOT FASHION WEEK



I've been wanting a suit for a while but I could never find one that fit me well, I'm a petite girl so dress pants and jackets tend to be a bit big on me, though I love oversized clothes, I had been waiting until I found the perfect suit for me. Sans Souci sent me this a a couple of weeks ago, the pants were a little big on my waist but all I had to do was take them to my tailor and she was able to adjust the waist line and it is now one of my top favorite things in my closet, I love pieces that I can mix and match and turn into many different outfits.
 I'm not the type of person who gets hyped about sneaker releases, in fact I can't keep up with it (sorry I'm not that cool) I'm more so the type to set my eyes on a pair and when I like them enough I invest a little money into them and they have to be something I know I'll be wearing often. I've had my eyes set on chunky white sneakers for a while, I just couldn't decide what I wanted until I saw the Nike's MK2, I knew that they'll be the perfect pair for me to have to complete all my end of Summer/Fall looks. 
On another note, Matt and I were invited to attend Grandoozy this weekend, It's the first time Denver is having a festival this large and we are so excited. We'll be documenting the event so expect a blog post about it soon. If you're in Denver, they still have tickets available so you should definitely think of checking it out, so many great artist coming to the area.

THE JUMPSUIT DAYS AREN'T OVER




I wanted to share this cute jumpsuit look, I know, another jumpsuit? sorry not sorry! I think I saved all of them for the end of Summer and to be honest anything comfy that looks this good - I'm game, so lately I just can't help myself so I keep wearing them. I love dressing up and getting creative with my outfits, but being comfortable while still looking cute to me is always best. With a jumpsuit you really can't go wrong, except maybe for when you have to pee, ok maybe that's not such a fun part but it's a small sacrifice you make sometimes and a girl can always figure it out :p
I mentioned on a previous post Matt and I tried going to the Denver Botanic Gardens and we didn't find parking, so we tried earlier the next day and had better luck. We wanted to go one last time before Summer ends and I'm so glad we did, everything was blooming and it was just so beautiful, definitely a place to check out every season, I know I've probably said that before but it's true.

Wake up your hair (care tips)




Hair has always played a really big part in my life and who I am. As you may know, I grew up with a hair stylist as a mother, so hair care has always been important for me. My mother taught me at a really young age that less is more, she would always say to try and keep my hair as natural as I possibly can for as long as I could. In my early twenties I would change my hair color constantly, I went from being dirty blonde, to having ombre hair and back to my usual brunette but when I turned thirty I decided to stop coloring my hair and just let my natural hair grow. I did that for about five years but part of me sometimes gets a little bored with having the same hair style/color. Sometimes it's just fun to change it up a bit so in March I decided to chop off all of my natural hair and get a little balayage done. It's been six months since that, I have to admit I have been blessed with good hair, my mother & hair stylists would always say that, especially during my high school years when I was obsessed with Rachel Green's hair and I remember me and my best friend would bleach our hair and would do highlights almost every month. We would use my mom's hair products to do it to each others hair, (something I definitely do not recommend if you want to keep you hair healthy) but those were some fun experimenting times, my mom definitely didn't think so though lol.
I get a lot of questions on how I care for my hair, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to share what I have been doing all of these years to keep it healthy. When it comes to hair for me, like I said previously, less is more. If I ever color my hair I make sure I get the most natural color as possible and I don't do it often, since I have a balayage now is very low maintenance so I normally would get it re-touched every six months. I'm no hair expert but one who has learned much over the years, so here are some tips I want to share with you in case you want to follow:

1- Don't wash your hair too often: washing your hair too often can strip the natural oils from your hair and dry it out too much. The longer, thicker, curlier and more processed your hair, the longer it can go between washes (In my case I wash mine every 3 to 4 days). If your hair gets oily quickly, invest in a lightweight dry shampoo. (I do this on my third day of not washing my hair because my roots tend to get a little oily). I have been using Grow Gorgeous Density Shampoo Intense but any shampoo without too many harsh chemicals should be good, try to always think the cheaper the price, the worse it will be for your hair.

2- Condition: After washing my hair I always make sure to condition it for at least ten minutes. Conditioner will improve moisture in your hair, it will make it softer and more manageable and easier to brush. 
We all have distinct types of hair and therefore each type needs a different care, in my case my hair is thick and it has a natural wave so by using conditioner I help enhance it and revive the bleached hair strands. I've been using Grow Gorgeous Density Conditioner Intense since my hair is already on the thicker side I figure having a little extra boost wouldn't hurt, in fact this could help the growing process to have healthy and luscious hair as I'm letting it grow out again. Any conditioner with coconut oil should also work, but always make sure you leave it on for at least 5-10 minutes.

3- Invest in a good hair and scalp mask or deep conditioner: After Summer's heat during those beach and pool days, hair tends to get a bit more damaged, so it's always good to treat yourself and dedicate some extra time to nourish. GG's Thickening Hair & Scalp Mask Intense was great, with just using it once I immediately noticed a change in my hair, it was softer, shinier and more manageable.  

4- The less hot tools the better: We all know heat and hair don't mix well but it is sometimes necessary, I don't straighten or curl my hair too often, most times I let it air dry and add some argan oil at the ends and I find this works best for me when I'm growing it out. 

(Granted, like I said before, I'm no hair expert and I don't guarantee that you will have the same results, I'm just sharing my experience with you after using this product, I like to keep my opinion as honest as possible, I do not get paid to post this, I simply get the opportunity to try the product and when I really like something I like to share it with you) 

I hope these little tips help if any of you should need it. I'm excited to let my hair grow out again, with the colder months coming, long hair is necessary for me since it keeps me warmer. I'm also stoked to be trying for the first time a Hair Thickening/Grow Serum
I always wanted to give one a try and see the results. I shall keep you guys posted on that later on, hopefully I'll have longer hair again sooner than I thought. Click here to find any of Grow Gorgeous hair products.
