Warmer weather is just around the corner so adapting the effortless beach vibes is a must. With less is more mentality and soaking up the sun each and every day, start thinking about your must have essentials and put them on display with a clear purse or bag. Make an easy statement without having to say anything!
Loosen up this Spring & Summer and grab your must need lip balm and car keys and ditch the traditional purse. Just throw what you need in your bag and go. And if you feel too exposed, pack everything in a zipper pouch or clutch and dump that inside! This allows you to add pops of color and texture to dress up or dress down a look. It can go from casual drinks poolside to a fun date night dinner!
The easiest way to pull off a see-through bag is look for those little details that set the bag apart. Whether its a structured shape to create angles and dimension or cute handles like these clear circular ones. These details will make your clear bag not just an average bag. But most importantly the trend is about what's inside, so display your favorite lipstick, colorful clutch, or your latest find inside. It personalizes your outfit to really make a statement.
Sometimes it is nice to take a night out on the town and get all dressed up. And that is exactly what I did last week and had a blast. Whether you have something to celebrate, a drink with the girls, or a fancy evening coming up, having that go to perfect little black dress is a must. And this one is perfect for any occasion and is super flattering!
If you are ever in Downtown Los Angeles, I highly recommend going to Spire 73. It is one of the tallest open air rooftop bar and has some breathtaking views of the entire city! It is a fancy night out with a yummy cocktail selection. We decided to take a night here to celebrate our progress and promotions within our careers. I love how this dress hits right above my knees and also has a square neckline to stay conservative yet the silhouette fit was on point! The material is movable and has the cutest back lace up strap detailing.
I have three go to products that I have been consistently using on my hair after the shower that I love. Hair prep after the shower is important because it helps to fight off any damage that could happen with applied heat from blow dryers or flat irons and curling irons. And it gives you the opportunity to put some moisture back into your hair for a healthier look. These are my three go to products that I cannot go without and here is why.
I start with the Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Flat Iron Perfector because it is most important to protect your hair from any potential heat or damage that will happen over the next day or two. I have been using this product since middle school and I really like it. Just spray on wet hair all over the middle to ends.
I then apply all over my still wet hair the Kristin Ess Weightless Shine Leave In Conditioner. This conditioner helps prevent dry or damaged hair by locking in moisture and giving over all color and shine back into your hair. I love the sleek shine it creates. Plus it does not cake on or create an oily finish, so don't be afraid to spray 10-15 sprays. Leave in conditioner can be life changing!
Lastly I apply this Kristin Ess Scalp + Hair Milk Oil which I did an entire post about here. I have been using this product for a few months now and love the affects. This product helps renew any damaged hair with a milky finish and also can be used on your scalp for itchy spots or sunburned part line. I normally fill up the entire stopper and place on the lower 1/3 of my hair on the ends. Game changer!!
