La Petite Magazine

30 Dec 2014

Hi Everyone!

I just found this amazing magazine that their targeted audience are kids! How cool is that? Maybe you are all thinking "ummm...haven't you seen that there are magazines for all types of audiences?" Well, I wasn't aware that there was a magazine fashion conscious for kids, and I think thats great for multiple of reasons.

Fashion is a medium to express style and individuality of an individual, so for instance, it is never too early to start developing that element of life. H.O.N.Y (Humans of New York) if you guys are not aware of, its a project that focuses on photographs with stories attached of the people who had been photographed. One of them tells a story of a woman who teaches pre-school, and she wanted her class to be more socially conscious, such as the case of Trayvon Martin by decorating cards for mother's day for Trayvon's mom. She got fired because of it, she just wanted to teach (show actually because you cannot really teach those values) sympathy and empathy at an earlier age.

I totally agree that just because they are kids it doesn't mean that they are not aware of what is going on. Sure they need some guidance but they know what they do and do not like. Same thing goes with the topic of fashion. Just because they are kids doesn't mean that they do not know how to dress and do not know what they like best, which color, which style...

I remember my little sister used to change outfits three times a day, and her ensembles were incredibly creative and stylish. Kids do have an eye for fashion. And this magazine, La Petite is supporting this idea and I love it! You guys should totally check it out.

Christmas time!

Hair care products

4 Dec 2014

Hi People!

Hair is something we are all concerned about. Is just as much important as eyebrows (what am I saying?), just imagine if you accidentally shaved one or half of your eyebrow. That would be a nightmare. So basically is just the same level of seriousness when it comes to the hair. You probably don't get up and just go outside and start your day looking like I-woke-up-like-this style. It requires styling, caring and lots of love for a fabulous and healthy hair looking.

I used to literally wake up, not even brush my hair, and go on with my day. But now, since my hair is dyed, I don't have the pleasure of leaving it as is it, I must apply products in order to look and be healthy. After I dyed my hair, it got very dried since I bleached it. I started using L'oreal products and Kerastase, they really worked well with my hair. There are so many products out there that doesn't really go with me, leaving my hair even more dry than it was at the beginning or it leaves it oily. These products work wonders on me and Im terribly grateful for them.

1. I first apply this product to my wet, unbrushed hair. Its for heat protection when I use the hair drier, it helps to bring out the color of your hair and it also protects from the chemicals you now have. It smells amazing btw. 

2. I used to use oil for my hair but didn't really know its function. Usually after I dried my hair, it looked like a lion with too much freeze. My hairstylist told me that thats why you need the oil, in order to control that freeze status. After I apply the Keratin oil of Kerastase, my hair automatically looks smoother and shinier. I do this after its completely dried, although you can do it before drying it as well. 

3. After the Kerastase product, I use the total repairs extreme for split ends. It also smells so good! And it definitely works. At first I was dubious but it makes your split ends looks "healthier", more decent because lets get real: it won't magically join the split ends together, you'll need a haircut.

4. I have no idea why I put this as the last step since I dry my hair first and THEN I apply the Kerastase oil and then the split end fixer oil. But you can also apply them before drying your hair. I recommend nevertheless to do it after since it gives your hair more control. 

Favorite month of the year

1 Dec 2014

First of December everyone!

Is the last month of the year 2014. How scary is that? This year definitely went by so fast, but to be honest, Im always looking forward to this time of the year when is Christmas! I love everything related to christmas. The decorations, the scented candles, the colors (red and green), and of course, the most important of all, being with the family.

Finals week is fast approaching and all I can think about is to travel to London and be with my family. I miss them terribly! Im so close to them and it always kills me to leave them, it breaks my heart. This semester has been somewhat interesting (yeah, I'll use that word) and Im so ready to be done with it and finally spend time with my familia. This particular christmas will be very exciting since although we are not going back to Paraguay to be with the entire family and friends like most of the year, we will be celebrating at London. I like to spend such holidays in other places of the world so you can really get the feel of how different it is celebrated. I've spent new years eve in Brazil in 2007, Christmas in Ghana in 2012 I believe and they sure are different from what Paraguay is. So I cannot wait to see how in London is celebrated! Im so excited.

December altogether is going to be an amazing month! I can so feel it. I wish you all a good month of December too!

Let's get ready to celebrate!
