Every girl deserves a crown

We go trough so much physical/emotional pain... 

We cry when we are furious and when we feel undervalued

We have a monthly period

We have to defend the fact that we are modern women and 
we are no longer the weaker sex. We have to fight. 

We have to get rid of almost every single hair in our body and 
some of those procedures are really painful, VERY painful. 

We have to go to the gynecologist and 
I don't have to do more explanation in this matter, right? 

This is my favorite: we give birth

We have to worry about innumerable 
things, more than any man could imagine. 

We are born queens, princesses, super women... 
even though our circumstances, languages and believes and are not always the same. 

We are born prepared for anything

We deserve a crown... even if it's a flower one.

Today I'm talking about the flower crown trend and you know how much I like boho-chic style. This is a blue flower crown a very good friend of mine made for me, approximately a year ago. I wore it yesterday for Easter Day!

where is your crown?

Review: Nerium Age Defying Night Cream

One of the things I hate most about getting new things is having to read the usage instructions. I'm always trying to figure out how to use stuff using my common sense. Sometimes that turns into little mistakes... or big ones. That's exactly what happened with my new face moisturizer! But not everything turned out wrong and today I'm sharing my story.

How many times have you heard? 
This cream will make your face look vibrant, youthful and wrinkle free! 
How many? 5? 40? 100 times?

Most of the time, they are just selling a product that don't really work. You buy it, use it, get disappointed, another commercial or informercial comes up, you fall for it, you buy it, get disappointed and so on...

So I finally received my new face cream: Nerium Age Defying Night Cream on January 29th! I thought: Oh, another one... okay then... let's give it a try. So I just read the instructions quickly (without paying that much of attention). At first I thought it was so sticky and difficult to apply, but then I realized I was leaving out one important part of the instructions: "you have to apply it into a damp face". Geez! I was already using it for 3 weeks... the wrong way! So I started from cero and these are the results:

[ I still don't have many wrinkles to fight at age 28, but I was noticing that my face was lacking in brightness and didn't really was looking healthy and uniform. ]



Pros:

1. Pretty packing.

2. Quickly absorbed by skin.

3. A tingling sensation that makes the product feel like skin food.

4. Instant elasticity.

5. Lasts all night and even when you wake up, the cream is still working on your skin.

6. Non greasy.

After two months
Remarkable smoothness.
 More uniform skin texture.
Some dark spots have clarified.
✓ Pores size reduced.

✓ I realized Nerium was really working when I started using less and less makeup each day.




Cons:

1. Weird smell.
(I'm not saying is the worst smell ever, 
but it's not a girly/cute smell. It isn't a strong smell either,
there's just something chemical about it).

2. Those dark spots I talked about
 in the pros section haven't disappeared.
They are just less visible, but still there.

Have you already try it?

3 years ago...

3 years ago I started this blog.

I've made new friends, met interesting people [ bloggers/readers/sponsors ]

I've practiced my written English [ I speak Spanish ]

I've laughed and cried [ when I lost all of my pictures last year... still hurts ]

I've disappeared and made a couple of come backs [ but never quit ]

I've been putting my creativity to fly [ talking about what I love most ]

[ I've grown ].

[ I've changed ].


This is a journey I still haven't finished.
For this and many more years to come...

CHEERS!


Love,

How to protect your hair from oxidation?

What is your most cherished body part? For me... my hair. That's why I wanna take care of it and protect it as much as I can. 

I wash my hair every single day. I know! That's not so healthy. But my hair is greasy-ish and I just like that cleanliness/aromatic/freedom sensation of having my hair freshly washed and wet. Why is it so bad to wash our hair everyday? The water. Why? You need to read this!

Oxidation is in the environment, the UV, our hair treatments and even dye products. I was recently informed about a discovery from Pantene experts: they found copper in the water. Yes, copper. Yeah, the same water in which we shower and... wash our hair! 

Pantene also found out that copper affects the proteins and it weakens the fibers in our hair. That's why they have a new collection called "Damage Detox".  It is a system of total welfare hair - shampoo that deep cleans and purifies to twice (2x) more antioxidants in its formula. It also helps remove copper accumulation, reduces oxidative damage and preserves the vital hair protein structure. When using this system of shampoo and conditioner, hair is revitalized 4 times (4x) the level of hair damage prevention. "Damage Detox" is designed for women who need a high level of damage repair. It is the first shampoo system, conditioner and Pantene detoxifying treatment that removes impurities, protects against oxidative damage and provides shine .

Pantene launches new four-step system, NEW 4 -part "Damage Detox Wellness System", which not only deep cleans and detoxifies, but also provides hydration and nutrition that hair needs. Furthermore, strengthens and protects the strands from damage, helping to protect the integrity of the hair over time and recover from damage. 

Guess who's trying these babies?  That is correct!!!  And, of course, I will be back with the review.




Now, tell me about that cherished body part of yours and how do you take care of it! :)

Spring begins with flowers & new friends

We live in a digital era. Sometimes we meet people online and then get to see them in person. Isn't it exciting and mysterious? Watch out... it could be dangerous too, but how harmful can a fashion blogger be? Last Friday I got to meet three local fashion bloggers for the first time! Two of them I already knew time ago: Nydia and Rosimar. We had a great time and a LOOOOT to talk about. We were gathered by JCPenney personnel, who's visiting Puerto Rico and wanted to meet us. I hope this to be the first from many more reunions. Yay!

Review: Pantene Repair & Protect

Remember [ this ] post?
Guess what? I'm back for the review!

I don't know about you, but hair products scents drive me crazy. I adore smelling them in stores and it is  actually a very important factor in my purchase. Pantene ALWAYS smells so good and this was no exception. But the most important are the results, right? This review was made with an entire month usage of the product.

Shampoo + Conditioner

Pros

1. Immediate repair to my ends 
with only a couple of washes.

2. Very creamy!  
So rich, it makes foam with just a little amount. 

3. Soft wet hair. 
One of the most annoying things about brushing my wet hair was untangling it. 
But with this conditioner, my brush just slides down!

4. Stronger roots.
My hair looks healthier and shinier.

NO cons.


Overnight Miracle

Pros

1. Not greasy!
At first I thought: shampoo + conditioner + night cream = greasy hair next morning.
NOT!  It absorbs perfectly and looks completely dry after application.

2. Frizz under control.

3. Extra scent. 
All products have the same scent, so your hair will strongly smell good.

NO cons.

This is my natural hair, no blow-dryer or flat iron.
The only products used: the ones reviewed in this post. ;)

Teresa

Bangs and sophistication on the catwalk!

So last Saturday I went to this exclusive Fashion Show I told you about last week. Great music, chic scenery and an outstanding runway show. I have to say that I would buy all of the pieces as they were so wearable, sophisticated and down-to-earth. Even though their look was a little LadyGaga-ish, I think the blonde wigs with the trendy bangs were genius to make people focus in the asymmetrical hats and clothes, instead of the models.

I'm gonna leave you with some of the pictures I took and let you be the judge of Natalia Collazo's collection, inspired by Finlandia Platinum's bottle.
