Top knot hair bun Spring/Summer trend 

I recently cut my hair about 8inchs shorter… WHAT?!!!? Yeah I legit internally cried on the inside as she was cutting away. I swear hair dressers get a thrill of cutting long ass hair short. I mean… I guess I can kinda relate; being that when I was younger I would only buy barbies with long hair so I could go home and give them a short hair cut myself lol.. I know a few of you reading this did the same exact thing!! Sighhh*


Well now that I have such shorter hair, which I am loving, styling it has become much more different. First obvious difference is how much faster and easier it is.. also loving, but what I love the most right now is the half top knot bun. I tried this look with my long hair but because my hair is so thick it looked horrible. Now that my hair is short it looks so good. 


The top knot half way bun I feel is going to be a big hit this summer. I already see the younger celebs doing it and I see it on the runway so I am excited to do this more often. Quick tip on the perfect top knot; when parting the top to make a bun out of it, make sure you leave your side burns hanging down. This gives it a more effortless youthful look as opposed to it looking to put together like you tried. I really think that the more natural look, the look that you didn’t try hard (but you did lol) look is happening this coming season transitioning into summer. The naked makeup, glowing skin, full bushier brows, blush tones and wavy effortless looking hair dues! <– do’s! (Which ever way it’s spelled)!

The SweatPant Style Trend. Ready-to-Wear

If you aren’t even a little bit excited about this new trend then you are just lost in the world. Let’s face it, who doesn’t LOVE wearing sweaters and sweatpants?!? Who!? Don’t get me wrong..I love glam and I am the jeans and T-shirt queen BUT a good pair of sweatpants!!! Yeah!


 Loving this new trend does NoT mean I love how everyone is wearing it. The whole sweatpants with heels wear of this is just not my cup of tea. If I’m going to wear sweatpants that means I’m going to wear either Sandels, uggs.. or sneakers., but heels….da f*%#! Umm no. If a trend is allowing me to be comfortable with an excuses then you best believe I am going to milk that comfort level to all new heights…. right??? 


Yesterday my husband and I went to the local zoo, well the only zoo in Barcelona lol. And it was the beginning of Carnival festivities here in Spain so we both dressed down went on a 4 hour walk and had an epic cheat day (in regards to food duh). And when you add hours of walking AND hours of eating, you must break out the sweatpants.


Sweatpants are from Zara kids boy section. Top is Zara. Purse is YSL. And shoes are Nike.

Transitioning to Spring. StreetStyle Edition 

I could not be happier that Spring is Springing along so quickly. Although it doesn’t look so sunny outside in my pictures it was actually pretty nice out. It’s been sunny all week and I am so digging it. If there is one thing I get sick of very very quickly, it’s carrying or wearing a heavy coat. Coats in my opinion are nice and can add a spiceiness to ones outfit but it’s always what’s underneath that counts… at least to me. 


Transitioning into spring. I absolutely love sweaters. Not your typical gym sweater but a chic chasmere or knitted sweater top. For Spring season they are essential. They pretty much go with every pant type and is easily dressed up or down, which is Life!!!! 


Today I wore a Zara sweater (comes in other colors as well), paired with high waisted Mango jeans, Zara Booties and Hermes Birkin 35 in black. I was warm and comfy and had my new short hair cut to compliment it all!!! 



I will share more Spring fashion incorporating sweaters. Also guys.. never forget, it doesn’t matter how much money you spend on an item or what the brand is… it’s how you wear it and piece it together!!!! ❤

Let’s talk Hair. Go “long” or go home!?

I have had long hair pretty much my whole life. With the exception of my younger days when my mom would turn me into a boy with the hair cuts she would get me sighh*. I think that scared me for life and now I am just terrified to go short. Or am I? 

I LOVE short hair. And honestly if I had smooth sleek hair that wasn’t so thick I would have cut it all off a long time ago. My shortest length was a little under my shoulders a couple years ago and I loved it (feelings were not mutual as far as my husband goes lol). Short hair is so chic in my opinion. I think it pulls a look together so nicely and just screams mature. Okay without trying to offend anyone here… long hair is only nice when you have full voluminess  hair that is healthy. I see so many grow their thin brittle dead hair long and it completely ages the person. Hair like that should be cut short with full of mixed layers and only blow dried. YAS! 


Nonetheless there are some cons to long hair. It’s very difficult to maintain. It gets stuck everywhere. It’s annoying to sleep with. It uses up two bottles of conditioner a month (which is a lot for me) and it’s super heavy. So I’m pretty conflicted as if to cut it short and take that leap into the short hair club again!!?!? 


Before I leave let me give you my major tips for long healthy hair for those of you seeking to achieve just that.

  1. ONLY wash your hair once a week
  2. Do NOT flat iron your hair. Use a blow drier and wait till your hair is damp-dry NOT wet
  3. Use a good argon oil on the tips of your hair after showers and after blow drying. 

I mean really guys, invest in a good shower cap and use it. You will love the results, I swear by it.
