5 Health Tips!

Good morning angels! Filmed a health video yesterday, talking about 5 ways that you can get healthy starting today. Simple little things that can make such a big difference! I love that you guys are interested in my health videos :) It's such an important part of beauty. 

Something I didn't mention is to drink as much WATER during the day as possible! I am sure you guys have heard that before, but it is SO important for beautiful and healthy bodies. Also, when working out and eating healthy, instead of thinking "I'm doing this to be skinny", replace it with "I want to be HEALTHY and FEEL & LOOK amazing". You will get a lot further with a smart and healthy attitude and your results will be much better!

Top Bun Hair Tutorial

Hi ladies! It's been so long since I've blogged. Found myself out of the NYC again lol. My family and I went to LA for just a few days to help my brother move in to his new apartment. We did a whole makeover! Top to bottom clean, bought new furniture, revamped some of his old things, did lots of laundry, (did I mention clean? lol) and decorated. We could've easily been on a home makeover show. It was so fun but so exhausting! He loves it now though, and I do too :) I just got back last night, and was so eager to film and edit a new video for you! I've been wanting to show you how I get this elegant top knot bun which I've been sporting around town.. ;) This hairstyle is so easy to create, you could do it with your eyes closed, but looks really pretty and put together. It's been my go-to hairstyle between washes, and before events where I don't have a lot of time to get ready, I always rely on this. So of course I want to share it with you! 


Products Used:
- Paddle brush (conair)
- Smoothing brush (creative brushes small bristles styling brush) 
- Hair ties
- L'Oreal Elnett hairspray 
- Mesh donut (they're usually very cheap, I got mine for $1!)
- Bobby pins

Blacmera Fashion Show

Fashion Week is in full swing here in New York City and yesterday I was invited to attend the Blacmera Spring 2012 Show held at the Metropolitan Pavilion. "BlacMéra is a couture brand founded by Yuliana Candra, with a vision to bring the femininity and the romanticism of the old world’s beauty to the modern, strong, and powerful women." The collection included some beautiful flowy silk chiffon tunic dresses, inspired by Moroccan Kaftans. Crazy thing is that each one is hand painted! They were definitely my favorite. I took lots of pictures, but most of them ended up blurry, need to learn how to take in-action shots lol :) Anyway it was a nice experience! Last night we also attended the closing party for all the Style 360 Runway shows which was great! Will post some of those pictures tonight :)


My friend, Dale and I :) Love his hair!

My favorite looks from the show!

Designer, Yuliana Candra

Today's Outfit

Today has been a great day! Woke up really early after having some odd dreams, but decided just to get up and get an early start to the day. I filmed my London Haul and another little video which I hope turned out good too. Also got a few photos taken of my outfit that I wore today. It was crazy hot and humid today, not great weather for this concert jungle but fall is right around the corner, yay :) Are you excited for the fall? I think autumn in New York is by far the best season. When all the leaves in Central Park turn red, and you're able to wear boots and a jacket and feel a cool breeze - that's the best time of year here. How has everyone's day been? Will be back with some more outfit pictures soon! XOXO  

More outfit of the day pictures coming up!

Chanel Pop Up

Hi beautiful! I have a few more pictures from my trip below :) I had to check out the new Chanel Pop Up store at Covent Gardens which just opened a few weeks ago. It was really cute, much smaller than I expected but still very glam. I got the chance to get my nails painted in the lower level of the store which was so fun. They had all the beautiful Chanel nail polishes displayed for you to try, as well as some nice fragrances too. Took a few quick pictures with my iPhone, so the quality isn't the best, but you can still get the gist! :) My time in London was just amazing. Really love this city!!

London Town!

I don't know where to begin, London was just amazing and so fun!! I'd been to London plenty of times before, since I used to live in Switzerland, but this time was different. Every morning I got up early and didn't get to bed before midnight, just soaked up as much of London as I could. I got to spend time with my cousin, aka twin, and of course got to spend lots of time with my family. Family time is the best! I did lots of "high street" shopping and got to see some beautiful spots in London. Been so lucky to travel so much this summer! I dreamt of a summer like this for such a long time! :) But now I'll be back home for a while and getting some new videos up soon. Want to film a haul video with all the goodies I got from the high street. Oh yeah! :) Below are a few pictures from my trip! Prepare for a picture bomb lol.
