Sunrise and Layovers in Paris

I had a bit of time during my layover in Charles de Gaulle (Parisian airport). Though I’ve been here many times, I don’t think I ever liked it as much as this time. The sunrise, paired with the window wall illuminated the waiting area, and let me tell you, it got hot. I took off my jacket and cardigan, and decided to walk around, wearing a black tank top, leggings, and Clark’s. In Canada, wearing leggings and a tank top is a norm, but it was interesting to see the looks I was getting from local Parisians. As I learned from my visit last year, ladies like to cover their hips, especially if they’re wearing leggings.
Paris definitely deserves the title as one of the fashion capitals, because all the ladies are able to compliment their body types, cover their bums, and do it stylishly.
Long shirts and cardigans did the trick, while also colour blocking and layering. Well done my Parisian ladies, well done indeed.

Not Leaving Prom Behind

As school has come to a close and everyone is avidly planning parties, roadtrips, and sleepovers for the summer, I, along with the rest of my graduating class, were  excitedly looking forward to our prom!

And just as quickly as the anticipation time flew by, so did the night itself, which of course, is quite saddening.

However, I wanted to give you ladies a way to remember your prom (whether just passed, from several years ago, or in the future) throughout the summer with these hairstyles!

At my own prom, I saw a variety of styles that defied the stereotypical prom hair. All I kept thinking was that these would be great styles for the summer on a night out or a way to make your overall look complete!

Instead of doing the traditional bun, curl your hair first. It’ll give your hair more texture and volume. When putting it back into the bun, keep your grip loose so that the hair at the front falls naturally around your face. Leaving out a curly strand is super cute as well!

This is me at prom, and although this is a complete act of narcissism, I thought it was appropriate for this page. This messy braid is the go-to summer hair look for this season and adding flowers with loose strands make for the perfect one.

My friend Shelley definitely put a twist to the stereotypical prom hair with her look. What I like about this one is that wearing your hair to a dinner or drinks just like this works with any look. Of course messing it up, easing up on the curls, and letting them sit naturally do the same justice.

Hoping everyone’s summer is going great – which look was your favourite?

Summer Hair Trends for 2013

Clearly I am getting really tired of winter and filling my time with trends for the summer.

Hair trends this year are putting a spin on pretty-grunge using dull hair colours and vibrant accessories.

1) Platinum Blonde – Try something completely new this summer and go with platinum blonde. Not only is this colour light for the summer, but it makes your face and outfits look that much more chic.


2) Head Scarves – If you want a more bohemian look, accessorize with head scarves. They’re a great way to bring in colour to your hair and finish outfit looks.

3) Silver/Grey – Definitely a new colour to be introduced. Many worry that this will age them, but the trick is adding a little lavender to brighten up the silver/grey. If you are the grunge-hippie type, this look is for you!


4) Hair Accessories – Floral hair accessories are my fav, but metal ones are up there too! Add floral hair accessories to this silver/grey colour. The brighter the better – you’ll get a lovely pop effect! For darker hair colours, I would suggest metal hair pieces, especially on a night out – hot!


Get funky this summer!
