Fashion Talk! Winter 2015 Hairstyles!

26 Jan

Hello dear readers,

I have recently reposted a post on hairstyles. It included ways for you to update your look without changing a whole lot of it. Just in case you wanted to revamp or refashion your locks for winter time!!! I have put together a comprehensive list of the “MUST Do DOS” for Hairstyles this Winter of 2015.

Let’s stay updated girls!! Do you have a favourite??


#1 – The Side Swept Hair

The side swept is a cool way to refresh your look! You can go bold and really make a statement with it or you can go a little milder and keep with your original cut lines!

#2 – Wet Hair

This trend was all the range in the 90’s remember?? All the cool hip kids were doing it!! Beware not to overdue it or it might look crunchy and dry!! You want it to look classy and sleek!!

#3 – Ponytails

Ponytails are not new but are very trendy right now!! You can wear them in just about any situation!! In a sleek up do or in a classical wavy look!

#4- Braids

Braids have been trending for a while now and they are a personal favourite of mine as I really like that classical glamour look they can add to any hairstyle.

#5 – Knots and Buns

The Top knot was all the range when I was living in the UK and it seems I was the only one not mastering it properly!! Anyway I did and it looked great!! Buns are a very cool way to do something to your hair when its being stubborn or just plain flat!!

#6 – French Braid

French braids are like fancy braids! I could never really master the Art of it! Although my husband got really close to making me a lovely one!!

#7- Straight

Straight is all the range now. Like it was before but with a twist! You can wear your hair wavy and natural during day time (for example) and at night you can go for a sleek straight approach!

#8- Color

I usually add some highlights during winter time to brighten my look!! Do you do the same? You can go with more bold colours and go FULL out!!

#9 – Bangs 

Bangs are trending right now and you can do a side swept one, you can do a full fringe or even little musing of bangs!!! The choice is yours!!

#10 – Accessories

Accessories are a fun way to play with your “hair”! You can add a pin, a flower, a headband, anything really!!

#11 – The Bobs

There are very different types of bobs!! You can even “fake” one!!! The hit bob right one is a little above your shoulder blades!!!! Which one are you trying?

#12 – Wavy and Curly

I have been so happy that wavy and curly hair has been on trend for quite sometime now. My hair is wavy and it tends to curl when I take proper care of it!! So this is a must do trend for me. The secret is hydration!

Hello dear readers,

Whether you are feeling uninspired because the holidays are coming and you might feel the need to eat all the chocolate in the house ( just because it’s xmas and everybody knows it doesn’t count) then procede to just fit into Santa’s pants after New Year and start some sort of cleanse and promise to be good that year. OH well, just Enjoy!

Why not try to lift your spirits with a different hair style or hair colour? It’s therapeutical, I red about it in some magazine, it wasn’t cosmo okay? I think it was some journal ( if you say journal everyone will be like – oh yes, she is wise in the ways of science).

This Fall/Winter we will see three statement trends:

The Lob – A twist or evolution of the classic Bob, or long Bob. Straight hair, slightly below the shoulders in an…

Fashion Talk! The sixties!

14 Jan 1969-fashion-10

Hello dear readers,

I found these photos on a blog I usually follow, Lost at E Minor, and I thought it would be a good idea to share them with all of you. These are high school photos taken in the sixties, 1969 to be more precise, in the USA. These photos from Retronaut were taken from the LIFE archives and were shot by Arthur Schatz.

The fashion in that decade has always fascinated me and influences from the sixties are still present in fashion nowadays. It’s very cool to see these pictures and remember all these trends in fashion. Of course, it helps, that the people in them are very photogenic, young and beautiful :)

Do you love sixties fashion like I do?? Do you have a favourite trend?? I love bell bottom jeans and I really like the short dresses with the tights. Well I like everything really, but in moderation hehehe!











Here is a little tune to set the mood, Bryan Adams song: Summer of 69. Did you know that Bryan spent the Summer of 69 in Portugal? Beat u didn’t but he did!!!!



Fashion Talk! Winter Classics

7 Jan

Hello dear readers,

How is the New Year treating you?? So far “so so” from my side! Although it is promising to be quite the busy month, I am preparing in advanced and taking it one day at the time. I was browsing through one of my favourite shops “Mango” for “retail therapy”, looking for sweaters and found these two that I thought would make lovely “january buys”. I can get my “shopping” fix by making shopping carts online, I do this in several shops actually *confession* and then I don’t buy them lol.. It works as I like to browse through the items and see whats new and it gives me ideas for when I actually need to buy/need something. I put the sweaters in two different looks. Let me know what you all think!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year



Lifestyle! Time travel Portraits by Christine Mcconnell

31 Dec

Hello dear readers,

I saw this great post on Bored Panda and I thought I’d share it with you all.

Christine Mcconnell “revisited” her old family portraits in such a beautiful way! Don’t you think? She mentions on the website that she grew up surrounded by these portraits and that her mother has an album of these portraits that date back 200 years. She did a wonderful job recreating the clothes and atmosphere of a whole new age.

Her great-great-great-grandmother Martha (born 1821) and herself


Her great-great-grandmother Jane (1858) and herself


Her Grandmother Mildred (1928) and herself


Her Mother Kathryn (1957) and helself


And of course the humorous part of this set!!!

Her future daughter Trigger (born TBD)


Cool idea right?? Awesome job Christine Mcconnell!!!
