Winter Hair Trends 2012

Thursday, November 29, 2012

While I was reading a magazine, a subject got my eyes to make a post about it! You know, girls hate winter because it damage our hair, but this season, getting that straight-off-the-catwalk hair is easier than ever with a series of trend-driven hairstyles. All these ideas are effortlessly chic and simple enough to accomplish just with a handful of hair clips, hairspray and hair bands. This is your Fall/Winter 2012 runway to reality hairstyle inspiration with some of my tips

Sleek and Straight
I couldn't tell you any secrets about how to get a look looks like that since I'm not having a hair bang! A good shine serum and exceptionally brilliant hair iron is your ideal way to attain this not-a-hair-out-of-place hairstyle. 

 Loose Locks
The get-out-of-bed-head look is the least complicated style to achieve this Fall. If you're lucky enough to have naturally wavy hair like me, allow your hair to air-dry it's the only secret to make you're hair looks naturally splendid without adding any mousses or spray. If you have straight hair, braid your hair in several sections while its still wet, allow to dry, spray & unwind your curls.
Elegant Upstyles
 I haven't tried this trend before, I only have it when I'm studying at home! It's a classic French rolls, the upstyle takes center stage this season. To attain this timeless look, pull your hair into a ponytail with an elastic hair band, comb over to ensure there are no bumps, and twirl hair round into a coil with hair pins. Spray to hold. Leave a few loose ends as did the Michael Kors models or defy gravity with hair wax as seen at Preen. The best way to combat a bad hair day, this ladylike look can be done on both wet or dry locks.
 Twists and Braids
Oh baby! This is my favorite hairstyle! You know what? It makes you feel you're still young and looks like Russian dolls. Put a twist into your daily hair routine with a few pretty braids. Use plaited pieces to create your own Alice Band or add a few braids in-between straight locks for some movement and contrast, as seen at Rachel Zoe. Stylists at Suno used hair clips to pin loose pieces up into place, romance was in the hair at Elie Saab and Valentino with pinned-up princess plaits.

 The world's most female-friendly hairstyle is bigger than ever this winter. If you don't know what to do with you're hair, then ponytail is a great style. It makes you feel you're having that glamour style without any effort with doing it.
 I'm not a big fan of this trend by I love to pump up the volume with the elevated & dramatic bouffant! It's really perfect for tall women for a romantic dinner or party ... etc! For this head-turning 2012 party look, tons of hairspray & some effort is required. Add a ribbon or bow for that something extra.

Pause The Life

Sunday, November 25, 2012

LIVE YOUR LIFE! I've always wanted to make a video looks like this one! Actually, the idea came up to me when I was in the university and I thought It would be such a great idea to make a video mixed from some photos which are taken in perfect time and makes you feel you're living in another world which I prefer call it "Luxury World" even for a few minutes! The background song, gives me a fantastic power that makes me do anything I don't love with lovely smile such as STUDYING! I know that most of us are dreaming to have a life looks like this one, but you have to remember that there are some people who are dreaming to have your life, those homeless people who don't have shelter from winter or summer, those who don't have a life!

Anyway, to tell me your opinion and don't forget to pause the life and take a photo for your lovely moments and thanks God for having everything :D

 If you are following me on Twitter or Instagram you should know that so many pictures are waiting you in my monthly post "TwitGoodies"! I really need some sleep and I must admit that I'm quite excited that my exams are finished, and finally I'm going to have some free time with blogging and another things!I've been working and studying like a crazy person lately on new projects for the blog: a lot of E-mails, photo editing... etc.

Not to mention all the pictures I had to edit after I took them, because you might know that I shoot all the images of the blog but what you don't know since I don't think I have ever mentioned it is that I'm also the one who edits them, meaning that I make sure that the light is okay, play a little bit with the colors and make sure that the contrast is good such as the size of the images: and all of that takes quite a lot of time after-all, around 2 or 3 hours for one post in total. I really focus on quality and want to show you guys the best pictures possible, it's so important for me. I love doing this so much, more than anything actually you know. Sometimes I'm even speechless because of all the incredible paths and opportunities my blog has brought me to, I couldn't be more grateful and it motivates me to work as much as I can, and I mean... call it work, I would say it's more little taking care of a baby, giving it food and stuff, yep my blog is my babe, nothing's as exciting compared to that, I love it. 

I took the decision to avoid posting on week-end because it's friends and family time, not only for me but for you guys as well! So, it's time to go out and have fun. It is a perfect way to reload the batteries, right? So I hope you will enjoy this new TwitGoodies post which is filled with pictures from general shots of my little life. Wish you all a lovely end of the day and of course a splendid week-end!

Harrods for Stardoll

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Welcome to Harrods! While searching between videos on YouTube, I found this video which was uploaded by Stardoll T.V when they were at Harrods to celebrate the grand opening of the luxury shopping experience on Stardoll! 

When you start thinking about Harrods, many things comes into your mind! So, I was so excited to see the brands that it will be on starplaza, but I got disappointment when I saw some clothes are completely looks like Miss Sixty or Killah and they are so expensive plus they don't have any sense of fashionista (It's my opinion!). I mean, stardoll didn't choose the perfect shops to show it for us except Roberto Cavalli shop, it has great items with leopard patterns and they look really EPIC! And here are some items I chose them from Harrods! Hope you like them :D

Starting from left: Cat Head T-shirt - RYKIEL ENFANT, Ricamo Sweatshirt - Young Versage, Blue Mongolia Cardigan - Miss Grant, Beige Double Breasted Tranch - Roberto Cavalli, Floral Bag - Roberto Cavalli, Leopard Jeans - Roberto Cavalli
Starting from left: Bow Blazer - Scotch R'belle, Fuo Couture Jacket - Miss Grant, Leopard Print Scarf - Junior Gaultier, Ivory Skirt - Chloe, Rose Romantic Dress - John Gallino Kids, Matelasse Shoulder Bag - Supertrash Girls

DAMN IT! I didn't know that I'm such a great stylist. Even the look looks really simple but it makes me back to the old decades! No doubt the filter that I added to the pictures gives you a retro mood! Let's start explain about the look, I used Red Ruffle body top from Red candy for 69 Starcoins matched it with Barbie summer'12 leggins that I'm using it for the first time! And I found that beaded super heel from ELLE for 3 Stardollars will looks pretty good, and finally for accessories I used Fiesta dot necklace from archive for 9 Stardollars with Barbie summer'12 glasses.

Smokey Makeup Tutorial (VIDEO)

Friday, November 16, 2012

BEAUTY I was thinking about creating new post but I didn’t have great idea than creating new video showing up my talent in making Smokey makeup in stardoll since Nadine and Kayci (Our writers) are busy and both don’t have enough time to post here! And finally the video I have been now promising for weeks is finished, and I must say that filming is much more difficult than doing simple pictures. My clip was at first 20 minutes... Can you believe it? Seriously even I'm now wondering what I could have possibly shown during such a long time. Well I guess I did well and it's finally about four minutes long. 

 I am using for my eye make-up the white and black eyeshadow from DOT. Since I discovered this make-up, I'm a fan and wear in honestly everyday and it's really perfect for romantic look!I know I used so much makeup but it's SMOKEY so it must be like this! So finally, I hope you will enjoy the video and I hope I answered to your questions regarding my make-up routine, if you have any other request, please don't mind!

Marc Jacobs Resort 13

Thursday, November 01, 2012

 When you know how varied influences-anything from a vintage photograph to a scrap of fabric found at a flea market to an international trip-can shape an entire collection then you are studying designer's mood! Today I'm glad to give you a glimpse inside Marc Jacobs' creative process, as the designer reveals the eclectic mix that informed his standout Resort 13 collection.

The striking interplay of proportion, color, and floral prints in Marc Jacobs's Resort 2013 collection took inspiration from photographer Cindy Sherman's series of clown portraits. But what keeps the collection from venturing too far into circus territory are its '70s prints and sophisticated tailoring. What do you think about the collection?
