Perfect Curls & Healthy Hair



Due to the constant use of the hair straightener and curler, I'm always looking for new ways of treating my hair better. 

An important factor to consider is to use the right shampoo for your hair type. From what I have read and what it works for me, I recommend to buy a shampoo that comes without salt, the ones that you see normally in the supermarket makes your hair super dry. Always try to look for those that will not harm your hair! another tip I have discovered is to change your shampoo at least every 2 months because your hair gets used to the same components.

Another thing I love doing is to apply a hair treatment at least once per week. This will help your hair in so many ways! Consider this more like a deep conditioner, the reason why I love this so much is that it helps to keep the hair stronger, much healthier and shiny. I usually buy the ones that hydrate and repair the hair, but if I have time I love to make them at home with natural elements like coconut oil & avocado. 

Whenever I'm going to curl my hair, I like using products that will make my waves thicker, I recently purchased the L'oreal Mousse, I recommend this one for loose waves, if you are more into well-done curls, you should get an extra strong hold hairspray. It will make your curls to last longer. 

Lastly, to give a beautiful shine to my hair I love using the Argan oil from OGX. As I have mentioned  before, I love the final glimpse it gives to my hair as well as making it easy to manage.

Basic And Elegant Pieces To Include In Your Wardrobe


Walking around Vancouver is one of my favorite activities since I got here, the weather now is so perfect that I never want to spend out a sunny day at home when I have the opportunity to go out and embrace this beautiful city. This kind of happiness has always inspired me to be creative whenever I get dressed.
Right now, I feel like I'm always hunting for incredible details that I never get to see in regular stores. 

Bringing exclusive pieces is one of the things I enjoy the most of being a blogger and of course to inspire many women to find a style they love, but mostly, to feel comfortable in their own skin. 

Personally, I think there's no better therapy, like dedicating time to dress and do what we like. Treating and spoiling ourselves is so important and I'm always going to talk about it, it will inspire us to do things for ourselves, rather than for someone else. 

Today, I want it to show you guys how to match basic & elegant pieces together to create a great outfit. First, I would say, if you are going to keep things simple, as I did with this outfit, try to work more on the accessories like your jewelry, purse, and shoes. For seasons like fall or winter, we can try to pull a cute scarf too. 

When I got these pair of heels, I was amazed, because I didn't think they will look much better in person than when I picked them online. I got these heels from Zaful, the embroidered details I would say is my favorite thing, plus they are perfect for an evening and also for the day to day. As I was wearing culottes, I felt this was the perfect opportunity to showcase them as they deserved. 

At the same time, I decided to pair this elegant purse from Julia Kays. The nude color makes this bag versatile to wear and even more, the size is perfect! I love that I can fit anything in there, even my computer and lunch at the same time! You guys cannot see, but inside of the purse I was carrying so much things. Looks very sophisticated from the outside, but what it really made me fell in love is how practical this tote bag is.

Lastly, Jewelry! This top is very simple so I decided to add a little sparkle with this crystal necklace from Pairie. Getting dressed should be always something fun, make you feel prettier everyday, but mostly, yourself.

Thanks For Reading!
