– Looking for a preppy look? Try the  low ponytail it’s one of my favorite hair-dos. Make sure to get the soft-and-bouncy look.

– On a run and still have your hair wet? Do this: comb your hair and make a low-bun. Wait for 30 min -1 hr. (time you take to get to work), undo the low-bunn and you’ll end up with nice waves. 

Calvin Klein straight hair

 If your more into straigh hair, the silky straight hair is for you.

Slicked back down do Balmain

– Going out tonight? Make an entrance with a sleeked-back-down do. 

Low-bun Dolce and Gabbana

– High, neat buns are so last season. This season wear a low, messy bun.

Volume Marc Jacobs

– Add volume to your hair for a wild and fun look. (My favorite)

Side Part Faux bang Rag and Bone

– Love bangs but don’t want to cut your hair? Don’t worry just make a side-part faux bang like this one and you have a complete new look.

My Short Experience – Glass

Hello Followers,

I’m writing this short post just because last week I had the opportunity to try on Google’s Glass for the first time, here’s the whole story… Thursday night I was having dinner with my family at Whole Foods and suddenly I saw this guy wearing some unique glasses with a bright light on it, it reminded me of something I had seen before. I realized he was wearing Glass. Since I’ve been following and have written about Project Glass and Wearable Technology for some time ago, I saw this as an opportunity to finally test my assumptions on these devices. My brothers and I approached the guy wearing Google’s Glass and had the chance to try his glasses. From what I recall its main feature was to let you capture your everyday life and help you make some tasks in a more efficient way. So there I was, with this glasses on watching somebody else’s life. Here’s what I experienced..

When I first put them on, I had a little bit of difficulty trying to see what was on the screen. I guess this happened because it was my first time using them and didn’t know I had to focus my attention to the right eye. Then I saw this small screen floating in front of me with the time on it. Then the guy told me to make the swipe gesture on the right of the glasses to be able to watch some pictures he captured. It was so cool. He said that although Glass has wi-fi it needs to be connected (wire-less) to your iPhone to be able to work. He also told us that he wears it everywhere: while he driving, riding his bicycle, walking, running, etc. and that till now he has had no problem with it.

I really enjoyed wearing Glass for some minutes but I’m not quite sure if I will like to wear them everyday since I really had time trying to focus on the small screen. Maybe if the screen wasn’t that small it’ll be nicer. But the experience is just as I imagined it: amazing. And there’s no doubt I’ll buy them when they come out to the market.

Have you tried Glass? What was your experience? Or what’s your opinion about it?

Behind the Beauty of Shoes – Charlotte Olympia

Hello followers,

Today I was browsing through the internet looking for some shoes I was willing to buy and suddenly a question pop-up into my head: How exactly are shoes made?
Nowadays we see so many crazy and unique shoes that we really don’t know what’s the (hard) process behind those beauties. And suddenly I found this amazing video directed by Tabitha Denholm for Charlotte Olympia’s brand. Although Charlotte Olympia’s a British brand, in this video we can see how Italy’s craftsmanship, quality, details and dedication showcase the essential ingredients to a luxury design. The short film’s name is Made in Italy. Hope you like it!

Now that you know, are they worth it?

Xx,

Hola followers!

Les platico que el día de hoy estuve buscando por internet unos zapatos que quería comprar y derrepente se me vino a la mente una pregunta: ¿Cómo se hacen los zapatos?

Hoy en día vemos todo tipo de zapatos desde lo más locos hasta esos que son únicos y de alguna manera no conocemos el proceso (difícil) detrás de estas hermosuras. Y de repente me encontré este increíble video dirigido por Tabitha Denholm para la marca Charlotte Olympia. A pesar de que Charlotte Olympia es una marca Británica, en este video podrás ver como la artesanía, calidad, detalle y dedicación Italiana se convierten en los ingredientes esenciales para una marca de lujo. El nombre de este video es Made in Italy. Espero que te guste.

Ahora que sabes esto, ¿valen lo que cuestan?
