The other day I told my husband “my closet doesn’t work, it all looks ridiculous on me” Apparently I’ve lost a considerable amount of weight in these last few years (despite of all the 4 cheese pizzas I’ve had), so almost nothing fits me anymore, and the stuff that still fits doesn’t suit my current style. Also, I can’t buy more than I can take with me when we leave Brazil (💔💔💔…), nor I like to spend on cheap clothes that become trash in a matter of months. (more…)
The Low Poo technique has improved the health of my hair for good. For those of you who don’t know it yet, it consists on removing sulfates (harsh detergents contained in shampoos) from our routines, as they interfere with hair’s natural oils and end up drying it out. It also proposes to eliminate all traces of petrolatum, paraffins and insoluble silicones that can only be removed by these type of shampoos and are present in many conditioners, hair masks and styling products out there. I’ve already heard about this technique, but never really paid much attention to it until now: in a few weeks it has made a remarkable difference on the way my hair looks and feels. It’s super shiny and smooth now! I’m currently using local products so I can’t tell you that much, but I wanted to put togheter a list of shampoos and conditioners available practically anywhere and free from the aforementioned substances that I really want to try, for a gentler cleansing and moisturizing routine.
Its patented molecule (OFPMA) preserves hydration and controls frizz.
* All Living Proof products are free of sulfates, oils and silicones.
This is one of those pieces I’ve had for a while and never wore, mostly because I’m not into flowers, but since everything it’s about showing off those shoulders, I figured out it was about time to wear it again. It’s not to late to join the trend, right? (more…)
With minimalism taking over fashion everything became black, white, grey and normcore. I consider a minimalist myself, but if you’ve told me three years ago that I’ll be wearing these colors (and sneakers!) on a daily basis, I probably would have rolled my eyes. On the other hand, we have the “girls just wanna have fun” trend started by Anya Hindmarch’s cute custom patches, which was a much needed breath of fresh air (before everyone copied it!), because let’s face it, things were getting slightly boring. Now, I don’t see myself wearing patches all over just because they’re trendy, but I do like to have a little fun with my clothes. (more…)
