Fashion Items That Will Always Worth The Investment

I used to be the type of girl that thought that every time we had a new season it was always time to change my wardrobe in a 360 scale.. and WRONG!
Nowadays, I love the fact of being practical and instead of spending stupidly tons of money in cheap pieces I would rather prefer to buy one single thing that it will last me probably to generations, I'm not exactly sure if I can call this growing up, but the fact of literally throwing away my money every season it doesn't make any sense now.
With my 26 years of experience, I would say I rather now,  to buy "smart" and with this I mean, the need to visualize myself on how many times am I going to be able to style any piece and not buying things from a simple impulse, I like to keep my wardrobe filled with current pieces but mostly with the classic and good ones that I know they will last for ages, like:

1. A black leather Jacket 
This item is always a good piece to keep for any of the cold seasons, you can create great combinations with this piece like casual looks with jeans, high-end looks with layers and thick coats, and still get the chance of getting a difference appearance.
2. Black Leather pants
The first thing to mention is how good they often fit plus how warm they usually are, I personally love to wear them all the time because I can also style them with tights underneath, I love when they are black because it gives a uniform tone, you get to look cool, chic and sophisticated.
3. A classic designer bag
This is the part, when things can get more pricey, I have always been an advocate of seeing this as an investment rather than anything else,

After having these 3 main items you will be able to match anything, believe me.
 It's all about being practical rather than impulsive.

3 Main Hair Styling Tools

If I could only count how many different hairdo's pop into my Instagram every day I will probably never end... with technology, tutorials and especially YouTube, hair options are now infinite, all the different appliances in the market are impulsing us to purchase products as crazy!

Speaking of myself, I admit I do invest a lot of time taking care of my hair, especially styling it, I love the loose, beachy, tousled and heavy curls look, I feel they give volume and shape to my face and this is why I keep doing it.

In 2018, after trying some many hair appliances and having not the best luck with some, I got the T3 Twirl Trio, this is my favourite curler of all times, one of the things I love is that I can achieve any kind of waves from this gorgeous machine, (all their products are so aesthetic which is also another big plus) this iron curler is so easy to carry because the barrels come portable so you can basically take them any place, it can perfectly fit in your purse. (another check to the list)

Things have changed and I've learned my lesson, this 2019, I got my second product from T3, the Cura Luxe Hair Dryer, this award winner, won as one of the best beauty products in 2018 by Allure.  This distinctive hair dryer I got to say is a bomb! it comes with a volume booster switch, which is amazing! is also very lightweight and comes with 5 heat options to choose, this last thing is my favourite because none of the hair dryers I have used had that option and so I simply had no choice just to "burn" my hair literally. This is one of the many reasons why this product worth the investment.

From the T3 Accessories, they are not only very pretty, fancy looking but overall super practical! I got the Smooth Paddle and the Volume 2.5 Brush to get my set all paired, the first thing I did was a research if it was worth it or not, and thank god I got these two! first, they don't tangle your hair, second, they are not heavy to hold and keeps my hair feels amazing afterwards!

More than just a paradise is what I call my beautiful country Colombia. The energy, the weather, the streets and the bright colors are pure magic while you get to stroll around the old city in Cartagena.
The beautiful palenqueras are strong, independent and hard working women you'll see every morning selling their most fresh and delicious fruits( you can see them in the first photo).
Overall, traveling here is amazing, I feel I have a little bit of everything. The old city, the modern part, the beach, great stores with local designers to shop, and last but no least.. the food! they're so many restaurants. Honestly, my vacations here are always magical, perfect time to spend with the family.
