With Alexa Chung fearlessly embracing her double braids yet again watching the Topshop Unique show at London Fashion Week, school braids are back under the microscope. Besides the Lolita charm and the effect to unwomanize any look, school braids have always been my favorite since it’s the only way I can actually twist my short hair into a braid long enough to show and see it. Yay for being too school for cool.
When it comes to Spring/Summer 2015 runway, less make up means no make up at all. So take good care of your skin this winter, we won’t be using anything other than moisturizer or simply a BB or a CC cream (have no idea what they are and how they are used) next spring. A peachy pink blush, silicone brushed rimmel and shiny lipglosses are also allowed & thick and bushy eyebrows are encouraged.
I honestly can’t believe that people are thinking of freckles as a “flaw” because for me, it’s one of the most beautiful features a person can have. I don’t remember not thinking once that a freckled woman is beyond gorgeous. Every single woman on my “most beautiful in the world” list has freckles and I remember sitting down under the sun for hours when I was a teenager just for my imaginary freckles to pop up.
Point: if you’re struggling with your “flaw” right now, just please don’t. You are so freakin beautiful. Although I’m pretty sure you are feeling the same way I feel about people thinking curly hair is the awesomest thing in the world now. Just talk to me after a bath when there’s %90 humidity, right?
You know what they say about tattoos: once you pop, you can’t stop. I got my first (and only, for now) tattoo 4 years ago, a small paper plane on my left inner arm and hadn’t thought about getting another one since then. It was simply because that was my dream tattoo and after that I didn’t want to get another one just for the sake for inking my body. But almost exactly 4 years later, my mind is flowing with ideas and I can’t think of anything else. I don’t think I, being a 5’3″ girl, am a big enough canvas for so many gorgeous tattoos. Nor have I that big of a bank account.

Newsflash: like %80 of straight (looking) haired women out there, I too have natural, crazy curly hair. Though it’s not like Lorde curly, not dreamy, making every single straight haired girl jealous curly. It’s one part SJP one part bad morning hair curly so it was hard to make peace with my curls, still is. Lately I’ve been trying Kevin Murphy Motion Lotion but after so many years being a slave to hair straighteners, can’t seem to be able to let go. If only they could look half as good as this ^.
This up there is the only way I can deal with my hair when it’s actually summer out there. When you have frizzy, kinda curly hair that you can not tame or leave as is (because not everyone has dreamy shampoo commercial curls) a headband as big as your head and a flirty little bow (or a turban knot) is all you need.
