5 Ways To Add Colour To Your Hair

Changing your hair colour might seem like life-altering decision…because it is! Kind of!

After having the same hair colour and/or style for years on end, sitting in the salon chair is a weeeee bit nerve-wracking. I know. Last New Years Eve, I chopped all of my locks off! But, a little change goes a long way. Here are some styles you can try without giving yourself a mid-teen-life crisis. read more…

Pixie 101: Now What?

So you’ve made the plunge. Your hair is scattered around you on the salon floor, and your reflection is looking back at you wearing nothing but a big smile and a lot of exposed ear action. Hurrah! You have a pixie cut!

Congratulations aside, you take your new ‘do home and play around with it for a while. A headband here, a few bobby pins there – anything goes. But after a while you get a bit bored. Nothing seems to look right, and you wake up in the morning feeling dejected and a little mussed up (cue unfixable bedhead). This is when you need a little mid-pixie pick me up, and some ~fresh~ new ideas for your budding spring style! And lucky for you, they’re right here. read more…

Trend to Try: Shocking Socks

 

SOCKS

Socks – the most underrated & understated fashion accessory. We put them on every day without fail (unless of course we’re choosing their legged counterparts/going footie-commando), yet we forget to give them tender love and affection. Feet don’t want to be dressed down in basic black or washed-out white; they want to be fashionable like the rest of your body! They want to experiment with trends and be put on the best-dressed list of the Sock-ademy Awards red carpet! (PS. socks love carpets).

This morning, and the morning next, and every morning after that I dare you to be daring with your sock choices. There are literally thousands of cool socks out there calling your name. Cats? Check. Popsicles? Check. The loch ness monster? Double check. Socks are a really inexpensive way to dress up your outfit and add some life to your wardrobe. You may even be tempted to buy short pants and wear socks and sandals just to show ‘em off! read more…

Makeup Trend to Try: Watercolour Beauty

I could attempt to make a skillfully crafted comparison between art and makeup, but instead I’ll start by saying that there’s a job called “makeup artist” for a reason. If you’ve ever messed around with watercolour paints (grade 3 art class counts, guys) you already know the amazing colour combinations you can wind up with when your paints begin to mix together in the totally uncontrollable and stressful way that watercolours do. This phenomenon, of watery paints blending into perfectly pretty palettes, makes for some pretty interesting inspiration. While I’ve messed around with my share of artistic mediums, watercolour has to be my favourite one to generate beauty ideas from. read more…

Radiant Orchid ~Beauty Inspiration~

New year, new colour.

Pantone (A.K.A. the ruler of all things colourful) has decided that 2014 is going to be “Radiant Orchid”. Though the name kind of makes me cringe (after all, it sounds like title of a poem I probably read in grade 2!!!), the colour is kind of amazing in that I’m-not-quite-sure-if-it’s-purple-y-pink-or-pink-y-purple. Either way, the colour of this year has billions of ideas to offer, and in the realm of beauty, here are a few of the best! read more…

Would You? Could You? COLOURED EYELINER


Source: Rickynyc

When we look back at our childhood, we may come to find that our impression of vibrant makeup colours is rooted in our tweenage years. At the age of 10 (or so), caking on some sort of cheap blue eye shadow for fun seemed like a casual ordeal. Let’s keep that thought, only this time, lets tweak it a bit – because our adult idealisms of bright makeup being tacky is about to be put to rest, once and for all. read more…
