GINGHAM






















TOP - ZARA | PANTS - RAG&BONE | SCARF - LORO PIANA | BAG - CELINE
SUNGLASSES - GENTLE MONSTER (similar herehere) | SHOES - VANS


GINGHAM IS A PRINT THAT I'VE BEEN WANTING TO ADD MORE OF TO MY WARDROBE. IT MIGHT BE MY FAVORITE PRINT OVER THE CLASSIC STRIPES!
IT'S A GREAT CLASSIC STATEMENT PIECE THAT IS VERSATILE ENOUGH TO DRESS UP OR DOWN. 

I'VE DRESSED IT UP WITH SOEM LEATHER PIECES BUT ADDED A CASUAL VIBE WITH A PAIR OF SNEAKERS. LIKE I SAID, THE GINGHAM BEING SUCH A CLASSIC PRINT THAT EVEN WHEN YOU ADD A CASUAL ELEMENT IT STILL LOOKS WELL PUT TOGETHER. 

IT'S DEFINITELY A FAVORITE SUMMER PRINT SO I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO ADDING A COUPLE GINGHAM PIECES FOR THE UPCOMING WARM WEATHER.

PARIS // LE ROCH HOTEL



i stayed here for my 2nd half of my Paris trip and i fell in love the minute i saw it as i got out of the cab. This small boutique hotel only has 37 rooms, but has so much charm! the decor is mid century modern with a good mix of brass, velvets and pastels and dark hues -- the perfect combo, if you ask me! You'll notice that every angle of the hotel is perfection. The attention to detail and the aesthetics are impeccable. 

i found the hotel quite central. it's nestled in Saint-Roch/Saint Honoré (Paris' 1st arrondissiment), which is neighboring to Paris Vendôme, Place de l'Opéra and the Louvre. Just across the Seine river is Saint-Germain where you can fins eom good shops, eat and bars. 



TALK ABOUT INTERIOR GOALS! 
I REALLY LOVED HOW THEY MIXED VELVET AND BRASS -- SUCH A GREAT COMBO!




THE MOST SWEETEST WELCOME -- CHAMPAGNE & MACAROONS IS THE WAY TO MY HEART!



HAD TO GET SOME PARISIAN SOUVENIRS TO BRING BACK HOME


REALLY FELL IN LOVE WITH THEIR MINIMAL CHIC DECOR


I REALLY LOVED Le Roch -- THEIR SERVICE AND DECOR IS IMPECCABLE! 
IT'S THE BEST FEELING AFTER A LONG DAY OF ROAMING AROUND THE CITY AND COMING BACK TO A WARM "WELCOME BACK" AND TO A ROOM SO STUNNING
I'LL DEFINITELY BE STAYING HERE THE NEXT TIME I'M IN PARIS!

HAIR ESSENTIALS


my hair isn't easy to manage so i need A LOT of help. 
thanks to some of the hair tools and products that keep my main mane tamed! 


DRY SHAMPOO

dry shampoo is my LIFESAVER
for 2-3 day old hair, i always rely on my IGK Jet Lag Invisible dry shampoo before styling.
it not only does the job of cleansing, but it softens and adds texture without leaving any residue.  
i'm so dependent on it that i even have this travel size one in my car in case i my hair feels flat 
and i need a little boost. 

WAVE SPRAY

my hair does a pretty good job at holding in curls, but you can never go wrong with a little extra hold. 
that's when i spritz a few sprays of the OUAI wave sprayit's gives the perfect amount of hold where you can still tousle your hair. and the smell? so good! the combination of lemon, amber and musk is out of this world!  




BLOW DRYER 

i'd rather squeeze in more Zzz time in the AM, so i usually wash my hair at night and air dry it 
before jumping in bed. but, the rare days i shower in the morning i rely on the T3 Featherweight
Luxe2i to quickly dry my hair while giving a healthy blow dry with a frizz free and glossy finish. 
sounds too good to be true, right? 

STYLING CREAM 

ever since i started coloring my hair i always make sure to protect my hair. 
when blow drying my hair i always apply the Marula Oil's styling cream to my damp hair to condition, protect and prep my hair for styling.  


STRAIGHTNER 

With my hair growing longer, I've been wearing my hair straight more often that i used to. 
And the days that I go straight, the T3 SinglePass Straightning Iron gets the job done!
With one quick pass it eliminates frizz and gives me a nice silky straight strand. 
Plus, I'm in love with the white and rose gold combo! Unlike most straighteners, it's looks so beautiful on the bathroom counter. 

Well, there you have it! These are my secret weapons to styling my hair. If you have any secret weapons 
for your hair that I MUST try please share -- leave a comment below! 

Happy Monday.
