Frida Kahlo Inspired Look for Halloween

If you think of style icons from the past, perhaps the first women that come to mind are Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot. These women are all brilliant but we can’t forget ‘out of the box’ style icons like Frida Kahlo.

Frida Kahlo suffered lifelong health problems, many caused by a traffic accident she survived as a teenager. Recovering from her injuries isolated her from other people, and this isolation influenced her works, many of which are self-portraits of one sort or another. Kahlo suggested, "I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best." In other words she liked to take amazing and magic selfies.

As an artist I find her hypnotic, as a woman I find her a hero and a style icon, either way a beautiful inspiration. She loved life, she was fearless and she lived with passion.

I know that some of you will ask why would someone love to have a furry uni-brow and a mustache, well this facial hairs are a symbol of acceptance and being true to yourself and live a life without lurking beneath the filters of social media. I think this is the answer and I had to mention this because I saw people making fun of this matter without understanding the symbolism behind it.

I tried my very best to implement all Frida Kahlo's elements in my look, the way she was wearing her hear, the accessories, the colors she loved and even the facial hair.
I wanted to look like her and I hope I have not done a bad job at it.

2015 Beauty Empties #2 (hair & nails)

......... earlier today I realized I lost control over my beauty empties, the pile got all of a sudden too big and annoying. I am kind of tidy and hording useless stuff is something I hate to do. A lot of things, specially hair products got finished all at once. I am not so happy that some of these products are finished, I will have to repurchase them again and that will maybe unbalance my bank account a bit.

Let's do this! OH, and by the way if you want to see the 2015 Beauty Empties #1 post just click here 

HAIR : 1. L'OREAL ELVIVE COLOR-VIVE  has been my shampoo for colored hair for over a year, actually since I could not find PANTENE PRO- V anymore. I think is time to make a change because I found something much better, something that makes my hair softer. It was not a bad shampoo but I find it way to basic for my needs and I have to use a lot of conditioner after because my hair is all dry and the color is not so vibrant. It smells nice and despite the fact that I have a dry scalp, this shampoo did not caused me any rash or itchiness. I will not repurchase it.

Hold on to your beauty even after 30, new beauty rules and skin care perfecting routine

I was planning for a while to write about some beauty struggles and beauty tips for everyone that has faced the big 30 but also for anyone else that has interest in beauty overall.
Skin is always changing because is alive, one day can be dry as heel and other day can look gorgeous or full of breakouts.

30's is the perfect time to take your skin care regimen more seriously if you haven't done that yet!
 Your skin care routine should no longer consist just of the basic products (cleanser, toner, moisturizer). You must add new products that can bring lots of  beauty benefits, like serums, dry oils and eye creams. 
Do you have a night skin care routine ? If you don't have yet you should make one starting with today.

Unboxing /Haul from Douglas and Paula's Choice

Few days ago I ordered some things from Douglas and from Paula's Choice and so I promised an unboxing post and here it is :)

Some shopping happened because I really needed some things!I am gonna start with the small box from Paula's Choice.

Here you can see 2 of my favorite skin care products for dry skin : Resist Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10 %AHA ( exfoliant ) and Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. Both products are in my skin care regimen for almost 2 years and they improved  my skin condition. A little bit expensive but they work great and its last me for about 6 months. Inside the box there were some paper information about the products, ingredients and how to put together the best skin care routine for yourself.
