Hair inspiration: The loose ponytail

When it comes to styling my hair in the morning, I like to keep things quick, effortless and under 5 minutes. So, when the models strutted down the runway sporting these perfectly imperfect, low-slung ponytails at the Michael Kors show yesterday, I was intrigued.

According to hairstylist Orlando Pita, the models were instructed to wash their hair the night before the show and sleep with it slightly damp to create a natural, fresh out of bed feel. In the morning, just pull some tousled strands into a loose ponytail and you’re good to go. Sounds low-maintenance enough for me!

Baby got bangs

Last week I got a little sick of my hair and booked a last minute appointment at the hairdresser, and voila, bangs!
It’s gonna take some time getting used to constantly having my hair in my face, but I absolutely love the result. Huge thanks to Maryam at Corinne & Friends for working your magic on my hair!

 

Beauty Essentials: Tata Harper

BEAUTY. I got a question the other day about my skin care routine and thought I’d share one of my new favorite organic brands, Tata Harper, with you guys. I got introduced to the brand a couple of weeks ago when I was sent some samples, and let me tell you it’s a godsend for my sensitive skin. My two favorite products from the line are the ‘Refreshing Cleanser‘ (great for sensitive skin) which I use at night and the limited edition ‘Soothing Apricot Resurfacing Mask‘ that gives your skin a gorgeous glow!
