Lowlights/ombre-ish

Hello fashion nation!

First of all, for those who don't know, I have a serious addiction to Pinterest. 
So if you have an account, follow me [ here ]!



I saw this hairstyle on Pinterest when summer started. In that exact moment, I made the decision of trying this on my hair immediately! Actually, it wasn't until last weekend that I actually did something similar... myself. I guess that when it comes to hair, I'm a risk taker and even when I'm a little afraid of changes, hair makeovers are something that always excites me.

Remember when I did my ombre last year? [ Here ]. 
Well, this time I wanted to do blonder lowlights, with ombre at the ends. That's why I bought the L'ORÉAL Paris Féria Wild Ombre 080, instead of the one I did the last time: 060



I loved the result, but it's normal to have some damage in those bleached areas. I did the coconut oil treatment next day, soaking my hair with it and letting it work for 2-4 hours. If you wash your hair in the mornings, you can put on a shower cap and let sleep through the night for a better result. Here's my final look on Instagram:



My hair looks healthy and shiny now.
What's next? More low/highlights, even lighter.
I'll keep you posted!

Have a lovely weekend!

Teresa

Santurce Es Ley 5

When it comes to art, fashion is always present.

My neighborhood was celebrating art this weekend: Santurce Es Ley 5. Independent artists from around the world came to San Juan, Puerto Rico to express themselves in our street walls. This was my first time attending and I'll make sure to go back next year. As I said before, fashion was somehow present in this artistic event, not only because fashion is a form of art, but because I saw, literally, vintage clothes rags and painted mannequins in some of the exhibitions.



OOTD:
My outfit was all about feeling comfy, so I grabbed my fave sleeveless t-shirt, paired it with my fave shorts and added my fave side purseFor the hair, no bangs. I did the twist hair crown, only on the sides.



Top and shorts: Forever 21
Sunnies: Gastby
Purse: Stone & Co.
Watch and earrings: Swatch

This one's for the boys: Gillette BODY Review

I've been thinking about incorporating men's trends and tips on my blog for months. So keep in touch style-ish boys, because this is only the beginning!

My boyfriend tried the first razor made for men to shave their body: 
Gillette BODY.








Gillette BODY is a brand new razor, that allows men to face the challenging task of shaving their body with reliability and comfort. Its technologies and features include: 

Rounded head for greater handling and comfort.
3 moisturized strips for exceptional glide.
Slip ergonomic grip for exceptional control, even in the shower.
3 floating knives for a comfortable, close shave in some of the most sensitive parts of the male body. 
Front pivot head that easily adapts to the contours of the body.


His thoughts:
"We always look for a perfect finish and you can achieve that with the new Gillette BODY. It was a pleasant experience and I had no irritation. I highly recommend it."

His personal/cultural blog: En 3ra Persona.


Until next time, Trend-ish boys!

A Little Party Never Killed Nobody


Hello party people!

When I was in college I used to party every night of the week, but now my party nights are limited to maybe two times a month... or less. There's an e-card that says: "I used to be able to party all weekend. Now, a night of drinking requires more recovery than minor surgery". Yeap, that's right. Also, friends are not that available anymore, working full-time is really tiring and weekends are to rest a little and to do something new. I guess partying is not that important for me anymore.

But... it was a long weekend in my country. Good company, dinner and a couple of drinks seemed like the best plan for Friday night. Gold, black and white were the leading role colors in my outfit, with red lips as the antagonist. This gorgeous sequin skirt is from Mandala Vastra Boutique. I couldn't resist taking it home because it looks like a piece of art with its perfect tribal patterns. A little sparkle in summer never killed nobody!

For You Blue

"I want you in the morning girl, I love you.
I want you at the moment I feel blue.
I'm living every moment girl for you".
- The Beatles


Bloggers & readers, hi!

This past weekend I was feeling blue. But don't get me wrong! I wasn't depressed, I was just feeling the blue pants. This outfit is from a new local boutique: Mandala Vastra. They have plenty of crop tops in any color or texture you can think of. The inventory they have right now is so appropriate for summer season.

Train transportation in Puerto Rico is called Tren Urbano. I don't actually use it, since it doesn't make any stop near my work or anywhere I usually go, but I live pretty close and I love to watch it come and go from my window. Makes me feel like I'm in a big, big city! These photos were taken in the back street of the Sagrado Corazón train station.

What color do you feel today?

But first...

But first...




Hi fashion nation! 

Today I'm sharing an outfit inspiration, where the main star is the Celfie shirt. I'm a big fan of graphic tees since they're so easy to style and can be a transitional piece, depending on the combination and accessories. 

I bought mine on Etsy because the original one  wasn't available at the time. wore it on Saturday. I'm very disappointed because with one wash the brand faded away. Now I can style it with my pajama pants for a movie night at home. (Just trying to find something positive about the whole experience). 

This combo was inspired in a day at work. A pencil floral skirt with black bag / shoes and a statement necklace makes the whole outfit look sophisticated without losing the fresh and vibrant summer vibe. You'll feel comfortable enough for a long day at work and maybe later you can hit an after work happy hour, with pink or red lips.



How would you style your graphic tee?

Teresa

Close To The Sea


What's your zodiac sign?
For those who don't know, I'm a Pisces
I love water. Even more when the weather is melting-hot!

I have no problem with that because I live in Puerto Rico, which is a small island. The beach is less than 5 minutes away from my apartment. Funny thing is that I don't go as often as I should! You may think it's laziness, but it's more about having such a busy life. This past weekend I went to Laguna del Condado, where I watched people do paddle-boarding as I relaxed with the salty smell and the warm breeze.

My outfit was inspired in this kind of environment. I thought a sheer see-trough top and some loose shorts would be the best match for this kind of afternoon. To pair this summer look, I wore peach lips and a baby blue flower crown.
