Twist it up

12 Sep

Hello Glamourites,

It’s the end of summer and everyone is slowly getting back to reality with normal school/work routines. I know for me this can sometimes mean I’m feeling a bit rushed or even a tad lazy as I try to get used to the fall routine again. This is why braids are the best hairstyle. There are countless different looks and styles that you can create that won’t take too much time out of your morning. I have only experimented with a few, but there are so many pictures out there that I still want to try. Here are a few that I find straightforward to do, but it will still give you a fun and put together look!

French Braid Hybrid    ~ Start by french braiding your hair, then switch to a normal braid for two turns, then French braid again. Alternate between the two braids until you reach the end of your hair. Thanks Byrdie for the pic!

Connect The Braids   ~ This is good for when you wake up and don’t have that extra time to shower and get your hair clean and silky.  Braid a piece from each side of your head, stop where they meet in the back, and tie them together.

SideBraid

Side Braid    ~ Start to french braid from the bang section down, keeping it as close to your face as possible. Continue to add small sections to your braid until you reach your neck, then add the rest of your hair into the three sections evenly. Most important is the last step which is to loosen the braid! Thanks Treasures & Travel!

BraidCrown

Braid Crown    ~ My FAVOURITE. You can choose how much hair you want left hanging or put it all up. You can do any size of braid and it is such a statement look.

Grammys // 2015

8 Feb

Hello Glamourites,

If you didn’t watch the 57th annual Grammy Awards tonight, (or want a recap) I have for you the best dressed, worst dressed, trending colours and makeup looks for you! There are many stars who attend this evening and it is hard to pick out a select few from all the gorgeous gowns and suits! Take note, I would have included many more if I wanted to make this post similar to a novel.

BEST

I am coming from a very non-basis corner as I am not one of the screaming T-swift fans, however I fell immediately in love with her dress choice tonight! Her teal gown designed by Elie Saab was both sophisticated, edgy and classic with the window front showing off her legs and Giuseppe Zanotti fuchsia heels. The matching Lorraine Schwartz earrings in an aqua shade made her blue eyes jump out!

Katy ALWAYS puts her own twist into every look and this one is no different. I am happy that she didn’t go for the complete shock factor but still stood out with a semi-nude dress with glitter fringes, saying she “just wanted to shine bright like a diamond” jokingly to Ryan Seacrest. Adding to this she had statement chandelier earrings and her beautiful lavender hair.Grammys3

Ciara is typically not on my radar but tonight she most certainly was. She wore a one-shoulder ruffled gown by Alexandre Vauthier made with sheer black material creating a draping train.  Grammys

Chrissy Teigen looked stunning in a fitted Gucci gown with subtle cutouts from top to bottom. She a definition of a fashionista! Grammys7

MAKEUP

Trending makeup this year at the Grammys generally was very understated in natural style, which I appreciated and found much more beautiful than being caked in products.

Beyonce showcases this beauty look perfectly, as Queen B only would. She looked fresh, bright and truly like a natural goddess! She was dressed in a custom black Proenza Schouler gown. Grammys5

Gwen also followed this trend with a clean face, simple tinted lip gloss to allow her dramatic jumpsuit by Atelier Versace to be the focus.

TRY AGAIN

Rihanna, I’m sorry, I respect your style but unfortunately this dress I cannot deal with. ri

Iggy you were on point with your Armani Privé dress in the popular blue tonight but the hair needs something different. This just reminds me of a birds nest. Grammys6

COLOURS

To finish up it’s Pharrell in Adidas who is following with the influencing colours of the night including black, blue shades and white. To mention a few in black gowns this year was, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Meghan Trainor, Jessie J, Kelly Osbourne and many others.  Grammys8

Do you Ombre?

12 Jul

Hello my Glamourites!

My obsession with ombre started last fall when I decided I wanted to try something new and different with my hair so I tried the dark to blonde ombre. I loved it too – it was fun and I found I could do many styles with it to transform my look. Naturally I am now drawn to ombre inspiration detailing or themes which leads me to this party idea of ombre! It’s more unique then just picking a colour or two to stick with but using one and playing on the different shades and adding more dimension. Hope you enjoy these pictures and maybe give you some guidance for your next party.

How easy would this be, grab 3 or 4 different shades of balloons and place them in a fading order around the party. Adds a new element to just boring balloons.

Here is a much simpler ombre cake version that you could even make at home yourself if you didn’t want to spend a ton of extra money.ombrecake

Of course you always have to have a party dress that fits the occasion! This gown is stunning with the fitted top and ruffling down into lighter shades.
