March 2014 favorites

Well, It's me again trend breakers, and today is the end of March 2014, which's time for March Favorites, in this blog post, I'll include some of this month's favorites of mine, and tell you why they made it to my favorites this month...

March 2014 favorites

  • PHYTOJOBA hair mask: I've been using this mask over the whole month now, and actually I'm really happy with it, I apply every week as a deep conditioner, and it has done miracles to my hair, my hair is softer and shinier, and when curled it makes even bouncier, so I really would recommend this mask to everyone.
  •  CHI silk infusion: Maybe I'm a bit late on track with this product, but it's just because i thought it will be one of the regular hair serum, nothing too fancy and it's on the expensive side, but as it took a whole lot of hype I decided to give it a try, and see if it's worth, and by being here, it obviously means it "so worth the hype" i applied this product after shower and let it air dry, and it was so nice, it didn't need as many products as I usually put.
  • Bioderma: Which is a water-based cleanser, this product basically has done miracles to my skin, as my skin is very acne-prone so I'm very cautious about the products I apply to my skin, and this one could my the only thing that cleansed my skin and took all the makeup off without being so harsh and without drying out my skin, so basically it's a very gentle cleanser that actually cleanses with increasing your acne problem "win-win situation"...I guess.
  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil: This is a spot treatment that I use on huge active pimples, although it sounds crazy to apply oil on an active breakout (or oily skin in general), but it's known that tea tree oil is actually good oil for breakouts and acne prone skin, I can say that this does the job really well without being overly expensive.
  • The Body Shop Duo Body Butter in vanilla: i usually alternate between my body butters and that one in particular is my all time favorite, it smells so good and really warm scent, but what really gravitates me to it, is the duo thing with is like 2 body butters in 1, I use the very thick one on my elbows, knees and any part that is feeling extra dehydrated and the other one I use normally and i can just say that the scent is so heavenly.
  • Chanel Lipstick in Chayls: it's such a wonderful color, it's a coral lipstick that is not too bright or in your face kind of coral, It's so settle color, and goes along with everything, I just love it.
  • Steve madden loafers: Loafers in general are my all time faves but this exact one is Leopard and so comfortable, so it's for like: a comfy fashion statement for every day.
  • Cinnamon Chex Cereals: this is made for a really yummy breakfast, and most importantly easy and time-saver.
  • Pretty little liars season finale: I've been watching this show since it came out, but lately I wasn't impressed and wasn't so into it, until the season finale, it made it a bit better, so if you didn't watch go and tell me what do think about it..
These were my favorites for the month of march, if you had anything that made it to your top list for this month, please share them with me, and if you tried any of the above products tell me if you liked it too...

Have a happy April's Fool...

Spring trends Vol.2

Hello there trend breakers, (or shall I say spring breakers??...LOL)
Continuing my spring trends series, today I want to share with y'all, the spring trends that I'm taking home with me and I think I will stick to them this spring.

So, my top 3 trends for this spring season, you may find popular, but they are actually amazing and all of them can look very flattering and can be dressed up, or down easily.

Follow the trend...

Trend #1:
"Two pieces ensembles"...this is actually a matching top and bottoms, it can be cropped top with pencil skirt of the same pattern, flawy top with fitted skinnies, can actually see them going around lately in different styles, that makes it good to make too many outfits out of 3 or 4 pieces, and the different styles of it makes it rather amazing because it will go with many body types, (you know, it doesn't require certain body shape that can wear this type of ensembles) this Trend is great YES for me...hope you try it and like it.

Trend #2:
"pleats"...and to be specific here, I love maxi pleated skirts with side slits, it gives the whole outfit and settle bohemian look, that is just spring/summer appropriate, I also love pleats in dresses and I saw some tops with pleated details that also gives the outfit some extra vibe and Chicness.

Trend #3:
"Varsity jackets" got it right, yes i mean those super sporty and casual jackets, they're actually making a statement this spring and they look much more fabulous and dressy, and of douse comfy and casual, they made the greatest mixture ever made.. chic & fabulous, yet comfy &casual.
what I like about them is that they come now in different patterns, prints, and even bejeweled, isn't that perfect??

trend 3

yeah, I guess this post wrapped up all my top 3 trends for spring, if you like it comment and follow me on bloglovin...Click here's all about the style...

Spring Trends.

YES....Spring is officially here, and that would only mean one thing, which is pulling out all the spring clothes and experimenting with some trends in which what are we gonna break, and which to take ;)....

Today, i'm gonna be specific, and I'll begin with....TADADADA

Trends meant to be broken.

I'll include my main 3 trends that I think were meant to broken and sorry to all the designers but some of these trends I actually find a little off at least my style.

Trend #1:
"Running shoes on dresses"...yet it might sound a lot comfortable, but we all know fashion ain't about being comfy all the time, this trend is getting really high, but I'm sorry i don't think anyone would pull it on perfectly, and it won't look so good at the end.. This trend was captured in both Dior and CHANEL's shows, will it be seen soon on a red carpet?? Maybe...

Trend #2:
"socks with sandals"... Last winter shows made it clear that socks will have a great appearance in the next spring fashion shows, but wasn't expected to be as great. I actually don't feel wearing socks with sandals will do a statement in your outfit, I think it makes it look more undone and that you just rolled out of bed and grabbed whatever to wear.

Trend #3: 
"Dresses/skirts over pants"...Out of all the 3 trends, the one that I hate the most is this one, and If I can chose only one trend to break and smash into pieces, it would be this one, first, it's not flattering at all, second i don't get the idea from wearing skirts over pants, For me, this is the absolute Fashion Fail. 

All in all, I just want to address my opinion about certain trends, If you can pull any of these trends on, then Good for you, and that is your style, that suits you, but all I'm saying here is some trends may be so tricky, and not easy for everyone to wear, but this is the fashion  world, and that is the art of fashion....and your style plays the most important role in this world ;)

Stay fabulous

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2.

Continuing my mother's day gift guide ideas, I'll feature today the second type or interest for mums, and that should be the mum with style, she may one of the trend breakers out there.

The Fashion Lover Mum..
The lady who brought up such a fashion freak, should have a crush on Fashion, so without further do let's see the Gift ideas for this type.

I want to start off with something that most of the women adores, (no, it's not Pizza), it's HANDBAGS...these things have such a great place in our hearts, so I would suggest Micheal Kors "Miranda" bag, such a unique blend for a trendy mum.

Miranda - Large' Genuine Snakeskin and Leather Tote

My second recommendation for a fashion lady would be a nice watch, like: the Marc By Marc Jacobs watch.

'Blade' Crystal Index Watch

Finally, i would like to add a gift that can be for both (mom & daughter), and that would be a nice 'Dogeared' mother daughter necklace, that will have such a sentimental value, and will be great that you wear it together and never take it off.

I'm not sure if they still sell this combo, but if they don't you might have to get two either the heart-shape, or the infinity, and be creative with wrapping ;)

Mother's Day Gift Guide.

Hello Trend breakers, as you may know that mother's day is approaching the people who celebrate it on March 21st, so what do we need to do??  we need to come up with gift ideas that moms are gonna like. So, I thought I might have to do a mother's day gift guide series on my blog that will feature the different types of moms and the gifts that would suit her type.

So, today i'm gonna give you my ultimate gift guide ideas that I think are perfect for different types of moms, and also many alternatives to suite each one.

The beauty lover mom:
I'll start off with the beauty lover moms, and I have so many different alternatives for them, because as they tend to love everything beauty, she might be very interested in: makeup, skincare, and also perfumes- their favorite BTW...
for the skincare, i would suggest getting a set of Anti-aging skincare line of the brand she really likes, or a very well-known one that makes her happy about it, like this Lancome Renergie lift multi-action, that is known to be one of the best anti-aging skincare line.
for makeup, I would suggest to get her the Chanel LE NATUREL TRAVEL SET, which comes in a bag that includes a foundation, lip Gloss, and mascara (ohhh i wish i was a mom....jkin')

for the last category, perfumes, I highly recommend a perfume that she already likes. or something that you know for sure, she will love, so for my choice, i picked the Valentina By Valentino Perume, it's such a warm yet very sweet scent, that i really like. 
That was the beauty lover moms gift guide, I hope you liked it, and if your mom is not a beauty lover then, stay tuned for my next blog that will feature another type of moms and gifts for them.

The 13 Days Diet !!

(The 13 days) Diet, it's actually a diet that i saw awhile ago taking the hype on the internet, and if you didn't hear about it, then you can know it all here :D

First, I'll start the whole story from the beginning with you all, I've been going on healthy diets and balanced nutritional diets for a very long time, which in turn didn't make me lose weight anymore cause my body got used to it, and I no longer lose weight, so I started searching through the internet for a diet that can make me lose much weight faster and in a shorter period of time, ( which BTW is very harmful for your body and not that helpful or even beneficial..).
So, I found this diet and a lot were talking about and said that they lost so much weight, so i gave 
it a try.

Let's first see what it claimed that it will change the metabolism and if you don't know what is the metabolism??, the metabolism is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of living organisms, that actually burns your calories...(kinda off), and also it's supposed to make you lose up to 15 lb. to 20 lb. -which is a lot- and every girl's dream (duhhh), so i did it.

and this is the diet plan:

NOW, it's review time....
Sadly this diet was not as expected at all it was hard and really not nutritional, at the end of each day I would feel really dehydrated and uncomfortable the despite the huge amount of water that I did drink,  and i would just feel so angry and nervous for no obvious reason ( and i know this may happen in a lot of diets but that one was horrible) to the claims that you will lose up to 20 lb. this didn't happen, and i lost nearly 8 lb. knowing that i was dying and i didn't cheat even for a gum -which i needed badly- but that's ok as long as it will change my metabolism rate and will make it higher and so i won't put much weight on after finishing off with this diet. well, this was the biggest LIE ever, my metabolism rate didn't go higher or anything.

 To end my hating thing on this diet, i would say that you should stick to a good diet, that won't put you on a starvation mode, and just eat healthy and exercise at least 3 times a week, but never ever, go to such a fad diet, that makes you lose nothing but your temper.
Stay healthy & safe. <3
