How to Style: Leopard Print

So, a couple years ago I was an Au Pair of  a girl, a five years old who is the love of my life, and since forever she would pick out her own outfits: always leopard print from top to bottom. Little did I know she was ahead of our times and ready for a trend that would come to shake everyone’s opnion.

The Leopard print came back just last year, and based on the fact that I still see it in every store I walk in, its pretty easy to assure that will stay for a while longer. But how to style this vibe that still raises so many different opnions? Come with me…

With you would ask me, maybe leopard print panst, with a matching shirt and jacket can look a little too much for anyone above the age of 7. But that doesn’t mean that there’s no other way, and to prove you that, I’m about to show you a lot of options!

.

If we are talking about trends, why don’t go crazy and do it more than one at the time? Leopard print + Silk Midi skirt, the skirt version of the slip dress looks even prettier with the print on it. And I can prove it!

Hot to combine: create a fancy outfit by adding high heels, or a silk colored blouse or top, go summery with a t-shirt and flats or sneakers, and create a killer outfit for chilli days by adding a long sleeve turtle neck 😉

And talking about slip dresses, why not a animal print one?!

How to combine: wear it plain, the dress and the print are already a full combination of a pretty look, and most of the tips that work for the skirt also works for the dress. But if you’re looking for a even more fashion way to style, add a belt right on your high waist, style the lightness of the silk with the heavyness of the combat boots, and wear it anytime of the year by adding layers, underneath and on top, again it goes perfect with a turtle neck and/or a leather jacket!

But these two are so not the only ways to wear it right. Leopard print goes great during summer and winter, casual or fancy, any ways.

cozy with seather // hottie with a lace body

Classy // Casual

In general, the four things that wont go wrong with Leopard print is: Black and Gold (in my opnion these are the best combo), white and Denim. You can also add colors such as dark green and pink, pastels and maybe a little bit of orange if its in a dark shade.

There’s honestly, so many ways to style that  the hard part is to decided what to wear first

I’ve been additc to leopard print myself, and couldn’t finish this post without sharing some outfits of my own, right?

You guys can always check my pictures, first handed, on my Instagram Account, and on my Pinterest account as well.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post

Years of Damage: How I Saved My Hair!

First thing I shoud probably tell you is that this takes patience. I am the most anxious person in the planet, and when I started this journey I was so done with my hair, it was literally screaming for help.

I was never cautios about my hair, growing up I used to take the easy road and pay for any treatment that would last at least three months so I wouldnt have to worry about taking any care with my hair, which didnt do any good to it.

In the past three years I started to bleach it, cause I want it to look lighter, but i did that by myself and again it didn’t do any good. Cut it off, didnt help much either, so I had to look for a more specific treatment, a stronger help.

That was when, three months ago, I found something called a “hair schedule”, a weekly plan on how to wash your hair, very basic, very simple, but works wonders.

It’s a reconstruction treatmet, to recover all the good in your natural hair. I’ve been doing this for the past three months and my hair has never been this soft and shining, believe me

Here’s how to do it:

  1. You’ll need to wash your hair, at least, three times a week. –  For myself I chose Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, it’s what works best around my schedule, speacially know I got oily hair roots.
  2. Twice a week, right after washing it, you’ll do a Hydration Mask. I do this Mondays and fridays so I can have a better treatment for the weekends, but you can choose whatever works best for you.
  3. For your third weekly wash, you are going to take turns between a Reconsctruction mask and a Nutrition mask, both also after washing your hair

When it comes to what products to use, I am gonna share a the ones that I use, then a few brands worthy trying  and in the end two other posts on top ten best hair masks!

The ones I’ve been using:

first – Saloon Line desmaia, hydration mask;

second – Dove nutrive solutions, full repair;

third – lolla cosmeticsBe(M)dita Ghee fruit butter for nutrition.

 

A few Brands worth trying:

02688_new

Lush has amazing hair and skin products for everyone, and its all about social-environmental awareness, their products are handmade, ethical buying, 100% vegetarian, not tasted in animals and some of their new products are “naked” , which means no packed, wich means plastic free! It’s a perfect brand with really good products.

9d9e420952

Products with personality! I am dying to talk about this brand for a while, it’s Brazilian, it’s Cruelty Free and Vegan, it has hair, skin and make up products for all kinds of people. The best part: besides the fact that their products actually magical, they have such a personallity, they all come with great names and great proposal: “my curls, my life” and “I know what you did in your last treatment” and “Drama Queen”.

loreal_posquimica_mc

L’Oreal is a Wrold Know Brand, and when it’s one of my favorites, it can be found in any Pharmacy or beauty store and it has products for every kind of hair and need.

nutri_enrich_masc_150ml

Wella is a very professional brand, such as L’Oreal, their hair products are used in beauty saloons and has saved my hair a few times. It’s more expensive than the firt ones but it’s definetly worth.

A couple of posts that shared a top ten of best hair masks:

  1. The best hair masks to help reduce frizz, increase shine and repair damaged locks – Today
  2. The best hair masks – Business Insider

 

That was it for today, I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know what hair mask works best for you down below.

OOTD BIRTHDAY LOOK + PICTURE INSPIRATIONS

Oieee! Hello Everyone, I`m so excited for today’s post, ause I love my birthdays, I like to celebrate the entire week, even the entire month if I can.

But I have to say, this year I’ve got myself feeling sad when the though of having to celebrate my birthday crossed my mind, cause it wasnt an easy year. But I have an Amazing God, and great friends, and because of them my birthday was pretty special, and by the end of the day I was glad, just glad, for everything and decided to take that day as a mark, the first day of a new year, of a new life, I promised myself everthing would be different from that day foward. And you know what?! Everything has been great since then.

I am only telling  you this because I think is worthy, but this post is actually about fashion, clothes and pictures, and cakes and balloons cause we deserve it, right?!

Came home pretty late on my birthday but could let it pass without a remarkle picture, so Iputted on my best dress, which I never actually get to take it out of the closet, did a killer make up, turned my light ring on, and put all of my experience and pinterest refences to work… It came out like this:

 

ADD NEON TO YOUR CLOSET, WITH NO REGRET.

Oiieeee! How’s Everybody? Last month was #RockInRio and I am been trying to do this post since the, and I’m dying to tell you all about it, but it’s gonna have to wait untill the next post, because, right now we’re about to finish the mini-series of Latest Fashion Trends.

And I hope you’ve been taking notes, cause this trend has everything to do with the last ones on the blog: Monochromatic + Suits  + and now the colors that are vibing this seasons: neon and pastel.

Neon!

Neon is been sneaking his way in since last year, and the green neon it’s what its been out the most lately. If you’re not such a dangerous person when it comes to fashion, you might consider this a little too much. But, fortunatly, I am here to prove that neon can be very fashionble, stylish and not so dangerous after all.

The easiest and simpler way to wear it is adding it in the details of your outfit: shoes, scarfs, purses, jewelry….

 

Yes, neon pieces arestill gonna light up your outfit, and it will call attention, but the good part is that it’s not so hard to style, it can really go with other bright collors or neutral ones like denim or black.

 

It’s great for summer (which is coming soon), I’ve already seen bathing suits in this amazing neon candy colors in every store, also, dresses, belts, shoes and lingeries, perfect to be added in your daily outfit, such as for music festivals, that are probably starting around march around the world, like Coachella in Caliornia and Lollapalooza in Brazil.

Here are some other inspo ideas:

a perfect outfit idea for fall

 

Classy and asual looks, with a sparkle of neon, I could easily wear any of these outfits. How about you? Which one would you wear it, or at least give it a try? Let me know in the comments.

And If you don’t own any pieces, here’s a few you an buy it (not sponsored)

Boohoo | Femme Luxe Finery | Na-Kd | Tiger Mist

SUIT UP!

Oieee Hello Everyone, hope you are all doing fine and excited for today’s post.

I decide to bring it another trend alert, first because last week I mention I had two more following posts on the matter (click here to read it) and second ’cause I found out I am pretty good at discovering fashion trends before they are a thing, not the case of today’s post tho.

So, for the last six months I’ve been obssessed with tailoring pants, been searching the internet all over for ideas of how to wear, that’s all because in January 2018 I bought this amazing pair at a thrift store in Florida, which it became one of my favorite pieces. (Click here for a ootd inspo I wore with it)

And then, this year I’ve been seeing a lot of pants similar from the ones I got, but in a set, as in a suit,  and the latest fashion weeks are proof that the trend is for real. Here are some ideas…

Classy, Sofisticated, empowering, and it can also be confortable and pretty. It can be styled however we want, and I personatly think it feels so mature.

As because it’s usually on a set, makes sense the two pieces are matching colors, another reason is monochrome is a thing now, and you can find out all about it in here. And both trends together might be my favorite new fashion thing, based on amazing pictures from my favorite influencers:

What are your thoughts on it? Would you wear it? tell me all about it down bellow…

How to Monochrome, and All About What Can be the Easiste Fashion Trend for 2019!

Oieee! Hello everyone! we just change season and ohh how I love the feeling of starting something new, here where I live we’ve got flowers decoration the streets and trees full of new leaves, the days are starting to get longer and the weather has been changing. And I can’t help it, my mind is just happy and I am blooming with the spring.

For some, its the other delicious time of the year when leaves change colors, the weather gets chilli, the air smell like fireplaces and everything tast like pumpkin (gosh I miss that too!). But in one way or another, this time of the year also means new fashion trend, runaways inspirations, street styles everywhere and I couldn’t keep myself far away from the blog, so for this whole week I am gonna be talking about a few trends for the next season that are already in but are gonna blow peoples mind and closets in the next six months. Are you ready?

On todays post, we’re gonna go Monochromatic for the day! And I want strat it with a few questions: – what’s Monochrome? How to add it to your wardrobe/life? And what are some of the best inpirations?

  • WHAT’S MONOCHROME?

Its basicly a collor scheme with a few different shades, to be more specific here are what it means according to google: “it’s a object or image that reflects colors in  limite shades of colors and hues” or “means one color. Typically one color is presented in different values and intensities — or different shades of the single color.”

Good and simple examples of monocrhomatic in Fashion are an all jeans outfit or maybe dressing all in black. But of course it goes beyond that, and I am gonna show you guys!

monosamples-300x293
Pretty much like this
  • HOW TO ADD IT TO YOUR WARDROBE/LIFE?

That might be the easiest fashion trick ever, specially to those who find it difficult to wear/style collors. Who never said or never heard this sentence: “I would know what to wear with this shirt”? just cause its yellow, or this one: “That would go with anything I own”?

Yes, style collors in an outfit can be difficult if you don’t understand to much about it, or even if you don’t have such a crush on them. But monochrome definetly makes it easier, here’s what you gotta do:

  1. Pick a color you would like to wear, or maybe a collor piece of clothing you already own, like that yellow skirt sitting on your closet forever.
  2. Look for plain pieces of clothe in the same color, and you dont even have to hold yourself to the same shade of yellow from your skirt, you can mix and match with a pastel yellow, a dark mustard color, and maybe some brown shoes.
  3. Really go crazy about it, and style the way you want it: do overlaps, mix dark shades with light ones, pick risk collors like orange. Fall is a great seoson for orange, isn’t it?!
  4. Have fun and discover a whole new version of yourself!

  • WHAT ARE THE BEST INSPIRATIONS FOR IT?

This is SO my favorite part. You guys already know I am Pinterest crazy lady (and you can check all of my boards here), is where I get to know about new trends and also where I get all of my fashion inspirations from.

So, obviously, here are some of my favorite Pins od Monochromatic Outfits:

This three manage to get the exact same color for every single piece of clothing

This three mixed different shades, colors and even patterns for their monocrhomatic

 

Here’s an easy idea, which I ninttend to talk about it a little more over the week, Blazers are a thing now, and they usually already come matching the same collor with the pants. So the only thing you probabl have to do is find a neutral shirt to style with.

And here there’s a few bold ones with overlaps, collors not so similar and different textures!

In one way or another, I really loved the idea and can wait to apply it to my days. Also, can’t stop keep wondering about how to apply this to what I already have, for spring.

Are you guys willing to try it? which one was your favorite? let me know down bellow!

Trend Alert: Mismatching Nails

Oieee! Hello Everyone, I hope You all are feelling as great as myself today, my classes got cancelled so I slept late, took a long steamy shower, took good care of my hair and  skin, aaaand, did my nails. And let’s be honest, who doesnt feel much better after getting their manicure done?Something about it just makes me feel a hundred times prettier and happier, in some way.

And if basic nails already bring up my mood to another level, you guys can’t even imagine how happy I am about the last Nail Trend that’s all over my pinterest: Mismatch Nails.

Yes! First time I saw it, it looked silly and very childish, but let’s be honest: my soul is probably 5 y.o. so it didn’t take long until I fell in love, completly with it.

And also, there are some options to this mismatch trend that can help it look more mature, take a look:

img_1595img_1596img_1615

First time I tried those, I was very disappointed at it, cause it turned out a little weird, but after a better choice of colors, this second try, ended up cute, mature, pretty and very delicate.

img_1605

Here are the nail polish I used on my nails, but as they are brazilian products, right below, there’s a selection of some very similar colors you guys also use.

img_1614

The best thing about it, is that you can be totally spontaneous about it, mismatch the colors the way you most feel like it, mix your favorite colors, pic similar ones or even colors that you never though it would go togheter. In one way or another, I feel like we it’s a new way to re-invented ourselves. Take a look at some other ideas:

Another great thing about it, is that it can last over seasons, maybe by switching the bright colors into coffe/ nude tones, how about an orange dregadê  to match the pumpkin season, or red and green for christmas? I smeel great ideas coming for more posts like this, what do you guys think? Let me know in the coments…

Hope you guys enjoyed this post, don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest for more ideias.

OOTD: PLAID PANTS ARE UP AND HERES AN OUTFIT WITH IT

Oieee! Hello evEryone. How are you guys doing?  Today,  I wanted to bring a recent outfit that I wore for a saturday sunny -not so- winter day, cause it’s currently 70 degrees out here, even knowing it supposed to be cold right now.

Anyways, The main piece of  this outfit, it’s my new pair of plaid pants from Cotton On, honestly one of my favorite stores when it comes to find trend cool pieces.

Those are very beautiful comfy pants in neutral colors, such as beige, gray and black with a very discreet plaid pattern and a frontal ziper. It also has this openning on the bottom of each leg,and has a very mature look.

desenho 023fotos 006

I decided to add a black simple off shoulder top I own to create this outfit. I got this top a couple of years ago on a Zara Sale, it’s a very casual- chic and confortable top (which I usually don’t wear a bra with it) and I think it goes perfectly good with the outfit, the only thing I keep thinking it’s that would probably look nicer in a smaller size so it  looks a little less lose on the waist, but it’s okay.

I acessorized it with a black chocker, thats hasnt been out a lot lately (at least not in a black lace) but it does look cool with the top. A pair of white Adidas, that could be totally replaced with black sneaker or maybe an ankle boots.  Or, another amazing, and one of my favorite ideas, a pair of combat boots, only if I had one… haha

fotos 007

Because its a basic comfy-chic look, I styled with my Black with a pink inside Kate Spade Purse, and my Yankees hat, which it’s totally the key for this outfit.

fotos 001

Really in love with this ootd, and every single piece in particular. I keep dreaming about all the combinations I could do with these pants, and I am wondering what is your suggestion, what would YOU wear with it? Let me know in the comments

Also, don’t forget to follow me on social media for more outfit inspos. Got tons of looks on my Instagram feed and highlights, and even more inspirations on my pinterest account. Can’t wait to see you soon ❤

TOP 3 EDITTING APPS

Oieee! Hello Everyone, how are you guys doing? Today I want to write about one of the things I love to do the most on my phone: edit pictures. And because this is one of my favorite hobbies, I got to discover a few new apps in that last six months, that are now part of my days and can be a life changer for you too.

First of all, they are apps, for your phone, so there’s a limit of how good they can actually be.

But don’t worry, I promise I am gonna say nice things about them, eventually hahah. My point is, they are not professional plataforms like Photoshop or Lightroom, but they are amazing for daily edition or last minute posts, and they can be really fun.

So here we go:

  1. The Tezza App

No, couldnt start with anything else! I downloaded the Tezza App a few months ago, the app can be downloaded for free, but unless you pay for the good stuff on it, it gets very limited, hmm but honestly, it’s worth every cent. The Tezza App has great filter with great colors, all very warm, it has a few dust filter options as well, and if all of this isn’t enough, the Tezza App also has Templates and filters for videos, so it’s been a life saver for Instagram, which seems to never be able to create good filters for stories (#sorry Instagram, I love you, but Snapchat was always better at it).

all editted with “mood” preset, which is my favorite.

2. Meitu App

Definetly my latest obssesion! Meitu App is different from all other apps, it gives you the chance to play and get creative with your pictures: you can add glitter, emojis, flowers and butterflies with the magic brush. You can also change the backgroun for a beatiful Mosaic, can animate your pictures by adding movement to them. And now, with the latest update, you can also Auto Make up your pictures.

edited with magic brush tool

Auto make up correction, take a carefull look at my face.

On this video I add the rainbows with the magic brush and then animated the picture, all  using Meitu App.

3. Color Story

Last but not least, I got one of my oldest favorite apps. Color Story has very delicate presets, that helped me harmonize my feed for such a long time, with color but very light filters. One of my favorite tools are thee Effects, which brings this great light that you can only get when lens meet the sun..

My entire 2017 Summer Feed, all edited by Color Story

So, tell me, which one is your favorite app, please comment so I can look for them 🙂

Hope to see you soon,
