FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!
although it is very unknown if we are able to celebrate Easter with any other than the people you are in the same household with during this pandemic, nevertheless I put together a Easter dress lookbook for all of you who still want to dress up for the holiday.
I am a huge fan of midi and maxi dresses. I think there isn´t anything more feminine than a flowy dress for warmer weather festivites and they always fit no matter what you do. Super easy to dress up and of course also dress down. This way you can get a lot of use out of every single dress you own.
In this post I styled four different dresses in colors and prints and although they seem to be similar (two are exactly the same in fact) all are styled with other accessories than the one before. I always depends on where you life and what weather you have but adding a jacket and a pair of closed heels can make all the difference some time. I decided to imagine the weather will be nice and warm like it has been last week so I went with sandals, mules and espadrilles.
welcome back to my blog. It is New Years Eve tomorrow and if you are still searching for a big and beautiful hair style I got you covered. I love curls in my hair and they usually last me for days so it is also super convenient. Spending 15 minutes on my hair and it lasts for about 4 to 5 days but this hair style I am sharing today is a little more time consuming. It takes about 35 minutes just to curl the hairs, no cooling and styling time added.
But if you want extra volume and a hairstyle to impress I would say this is for you – go big or go home am I right 😉
I start with clean and dry hair. You can straighten it before curling if you want but I don´t think it is necessary.
I part my hair in different sections about 7 (it depends on how thick your hair is and apply heat potectant spray on every layer. I am using the curl hold spray from ghd. It is supposed to support your curls to last longer and also protects your hair from the heat. After combing my hair through I start curling my hair.
These are the hair clips I am using to hold every individual curl. I got them off of amazon. They are sold in sets of 50. I used about 65 for all of my curls.
For this style it is super important to curl really small sections of hair. About 1 cm thick but not more. That is why you have a ton of curls at the end. It also gives you the most volume. I am using the T3 Whirl Trio curling wand with the smallest barrel. I always hold my curling wand upside down and wrap my strand of hair away from the face. Hold if for about 10 seconds and as tight as possible.
Loosen the curl and let is slide down the wand. Then hold it until you can lay your wand aside.
Clip it immediately as long as it is hot and and don´t uncurl your strand of hair. It has to cool down first. Repeat the same for your whole head is what takes the most time but the more acurate you are working here the better the curls look and hold in the end.
That´s how it look after you are done curling. Let them set and cool for about 20 to 30 minutes. If you haven´t done your make-up before that is how I would use the time.
After removing all the hair clips this is what it looks like before combing through.
I didn´t use a comb or brush at all. I just used my finger to comb through my hair as the curls stay tighter like this. Also adding a volume spray or hairspray or a combined product like the one I got from bed head is a must. I keeps your curls in place while they are still looking bouncy and natural.
We are going out for an early dinner tomorrow and then head home straight after because Chloe is terriefied of the fireworks and I wouldn´t want to leave her at home alone. Also I am super tired in the evenings as the bump grows a lot these days so we are enjoying a low key New Years Eve.
Wishing everybody a great celebration and see you.
I am back with another NYE look today. I love sequins and velvet and all things glitter but to be honest all these materials aren´t made for everyday use so I figured why not create a look where all of the pieces can be worn and styled alone.
So I opted for a basic midi dress cause it is easy to style things around it. I got this one from amazon (they have about 7 different colors and I own six of them) which is available in a long and short sleeved version. It is under 20 and comes with prime shipping. The perfect dress for a bump but also super cute without.
To add some glamour to the look I went with a pair of fishnet tights – always adds some edge – and also a snake print blazer jacket. It has a satiny finish which makes it even more evening appropriate but you could also dress it down as easily.
This is the perfect NYE look if you want to get pieces you can wear year round and don´t have to wait for a special ocassion.
I am sharing an easy and tasty New Years Eve food idea tomorrow. See you.
