Hair Tips

I don’t fuss with my hair. Its naturally curly and I have finally made peace with it. Only when I am feeling sassy I will blow it out!
I have though gotten into the habit of not trimming it the recommended 4 weeks, till recently. I will add that my hair grows painfully slow, so my thought was don’t trim it so it will grow. Terrible advice!
I got it trimmed last month and within days I was getting so many compliments on how healthy it looked! So a new habit has been started and this past weekend, I got a follow up trim exactly 4 weeks later.‎
I thought keeping a very low key grooming ritual for my hair would benefit it since I was only aging it (yes you can age your hair).
So regular trims are part of the new hair routine and fingers crossed, here is long and healthy hair!

Alternative Fashion

My fashion sense is always evolving. I find my self looking for pieces that are unique, comfortable and loose. I cringe at CPR dresses!

I’ve also have been kinda addicted with boutique shopping lately. I find pieces that not everyone is wearing and I always walk away feeling happy that I am supporting local shops and designers.

Upon discovering Alternative Fashion I took an instant liking to the earthy and minimal collection. It also helps that the designer Alyssa Couture reflects the brand with friendly and creative qualities.

Launching her collection this past Spring 2015, Alyssa’s creations are both simple and effortlessly chic. I share my top 5 looks that I would gladly incorporate into my wardrobe.

Alyssa defines the ideal client to be a “free-spirited, confident woman whom values comfort, ease, and effortless style.”
