This outfit is totally seasonally inappropriate right now - I mean maybe on a chilly morning if I ditched the coat, but it's full on summer right now and this look dates back from one of those chilly spring days. But it's way too cute to just let it sit in my unused folders. The yellow wall plus that bright blue door is everything, man.

I wore this to my sister's housewarming party, where she also introduced us to the new guy in her life. He's a sweetheart and they're still going strong, but my sister has since had to move out and find a new place to live - just goes to show how much can change in a few short months. Life can throw you the weirdest curveballs. She's a boss who always comes out on top, though. Which is why I got her this Hercules necklace from Onecklace, btw, inspired by the badass that is Hercules Mulligan (Hamilton). I ordered myself a Captain one. 


Name necklaces really are my fav kind of personalized gift to give anyone. Just be sure not to get one in Comic Sans for a font snob.

I have been on a sunglasses-buying-binge lately. I don't know why, but this season there seem to be so many cute pairs of shades out there, and since I wear sunglasses 90% of the time during summer, they are the easiest way to lift an outfit to that next level. Whether it is by adding interest, by making you seem cooler than you are, or by hiding bags under your eyes (my favourite tip to not look undead after 24h of travel) - sunnies do the trick. I've gathered up some of my favourite on-trend options that won't break the bank, but will make you look like an insta-model.

My number one fav this season is the coloured lense aviator. This pair is just $7.99 and available in yellow, blue and pink. I have a pink pair as well as a yellow pair - one pair short of an obsession. But you can call it an infatuation. If aviators don't suit your face (I don't look good in most types of aviators either), here are two other options for that retro tinted lense look. These red cat eye shape tinted shades are super cute, only $9, and also available in 5 other colours. The red is my fav though. Would look hella cute with red lipstick. 

The other option is of course the round John Lennon type frames! Pink always has my heart, but if you want to keep things more mysterious, go for the brown lenses - both just $6. Best option to hide tired eyes (or a resting bitchface). Finally, the $8 round, white frames with black lenses. Very retro, very on trend, and surprisingly hard to pull off. I ordered a pair off Forever21 and looked like a bug eyed alien, but I'm determined to keep looking until I find a shape that works for me. Maybe slightly elongated into a cat-eye like shape. If you have any tips, send em my way!

Are you still lusting after a particular type of sunglasses?

Beauty: shiny locks with Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry

Beauty: shiny locks with Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry

Let me just come out and say it: bleaching your hair does not make it shinier, healthier or easier to style. And yet, most of us go through with it at some point in our lives, whether it is to try a bright colour, to hide our grays or to go blonde. I'm currently going through a blonde period and I'm absolutely loving most parts of it. I love how I look better in warm based colours now (give me all the rose gold jewelry), and the beachy vibe is perfect for summer. 

However, while I used to be able to let my hair airdry and have it look, well, pretty good, this is not the case anymore. My locks look the best by far if I either blowdry for a sleek look, or if I want a more casual look: if I let my ends dry naturally while my hair is up in a bun (great way to get those pretty, beachy waves). I particularly need to baby my ends. Even though they have benefited greatly from the Smartbond treatment I got during my third round of highlights - my hair actually feels and looks healthier than it did before those highlights - I still try to limit heat damage to a minimum by using the right protecting and smoothing products. Hair oil has become my best bud.

I was recently sent the new Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry range to test, and when I saw the results I knew I had to tell you guys about it. Let's take a look!

Today I will share another part of our trip to California with you, more specifically the first leg of our roadtrip, between Oceanside and San Luis Obispo, with stops in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara! I have very fond memories of this particular jampacked day, and I'm happy to revisit those beautiful moments.

Beauty: Urban Decay Naked Heat review

Beauty: Urban Decay Naked Heat review

Exciting post today, guys! I know I'm not the only one who let out a squeal when I saw the first images of the new Urban Decay Naked Heat release - warm toned eyeshadow has been having a moment lately, and basically everyone loves the Urban Decay Naked palettes. There's something magical about how the UD Nakeds succeed at throwing together a bunch of shades that just work together perfectly, making your everyday makeup routine more convenient, more inspired and a whole lot easier. I own all the Naked palettes (3 and 1 being my favs hands down), and while I'm not much of a collector, I couldn't resist jumping at the opportunity when Sephora.fr put up a batch of these available for sale online before the actual Europe release. So exciting!! Mine arrived in the mail yesterday, and I didn't waste any time putting together a review. Enjoy!

Beauty: Grey hair with L'Oréal #colorfulhair


This week was allll about change for me - I JUST sent out the final version of my PhD to my doctoral jury (omg finally I'm so ready to be done honestly), I signed the contract for my new job (so excited!), and I got myself a shiny new (temporary) hair colour! I was invited to try the l'Oréal in-salon colour process, featuring their new Smartbond and Colorful Hair products. I can already tell you that I am very happy with my unique new colour, so let me tell you allllll about my experience.
