While complaining time and time again about snow, the cold and what not, i have officially decided to give up .. Or rather, try and make the cold work for me. And this little furry friend has been nothing but helpful. Not only is it of great quality, but i also snagged it at a very pretty price during boxing week ;) Oh and yes, it REALLY is as warm as it looks. Kept me toasty on perhaps one of the windiest days ever. (okay maybe not the windiest, but it was close.) Ofcourse, it went with my trusty black basics. The jacket HAD to be the highlight of the look.

And yes, it got super cold once the sun started to go down. Its still getting colder here so keep yourselves warm everyone.

Wishing you guys a happy and healthy weekend.

Lots of love,

-Dania

Hey guys!

Apologies for the lack of OOTDs and all that, but i have been under the weather for quite some time now. Its been a mission to drag myself out of bed, much less actually dress up to try and look good. And lets just say, the weather hasn’t been helping either. But i will fix that as soon as i can, i promise!

I wanted to share my ‘hair care routine’ with you guys today. I like to think that i have discovered the perfect combination of products that works wonderfully with my hair and so, i thought i’d share it with you guys.

Because my hair is color treated, i got rid of all sulfate-containing hair products. Recently, i have been loving this shampoo  and this conditioner combo from Nexus, and its really been doing wonders with respect to keeping the color, vibrant and true and my hair, soft and smooth. (For an additional list of products for color treated hair, click here.)

I  also use hair masks once a week. I do try and switch them up every so often, just so my hair doesn’t get used to  one kind.

jasmin and henna

Currently, i have been absolutely LOVING this jasmin and henna fluff eaze from lush. It literally transforms my hair into something much more manageable, soft and healthy looking. I would say, its price is totally worth what it does to your hair and one container actually lasts you about a year if you’re using other products in your hair care routine. (i’ve had mine for almost a year and a half now, so its really worth the price.)

Hair-Doctorroots

My second favorite hair treatment would have to be Roots from lush (do you sense a trend here?) closely followed by The Hair Doctor. Although i have healthy hair to begin with, i can’t stop myself from using hair strengthening treatments like these to ensure it stays the same. I guess thats a lesson you learn after disregarding your hair for years. Its not going to be nice to you forever, trust me.

One other VERY common mistake all of us  constantly make is washing our hair with HOT HOT HOOOTT water. Having been there and done that, i would advise all your guys out there to NEVER do that again. I know, with the winter season here and all, its very hard but trust me, its well worth the effort. I usually turn the temperature to more so a warm–neutral range when i’m washing my hair (and roots) specifically. Hot water not only strips your hair off of its natural oils making it dry and brittle, it also opens up the pores and cuticles of your hair shafts, thereby making it easier for hair fall to occur. (For a more detailed explanation and guide, click here.)

moroccan oil

Once done with my shower, i like to towel dry my hair (patting NOT furious rubbing!) followed by massaging this Moroccan Argan Oil miracle product all over my roots and hair strands as a final taming step.

Note. If i am using heat on my hair, i use a  different product combination after this. Comment below if you would like to see that! :)

Let me know if you love these products as much as i do!

Wish you guys a happy and healthy weekend!

Lots of love,

Dania.

Busy busy time for me right now. School, extra curricular activities, life. You name it. But i know its a Sunday and well, the weekend deserves atleast one post in my opinion. So i thought i’d share my current four finds.IMG_1209

This one’s from Mendocino.

I may be uber excited for spring but it looks like winter is here to stay.  I’ve obsessed about sweaters in the past and i think it’s time to give ‘Faux Fur Vests’ a chance to shine.  If you’re on the market for a fur vest, try going for a more natural shade, along the lines of tan, brown, taupe etc. Look for somethings thats more patterned with respect to colour. It adds to its ‘natural’ flair. While a solid colour might be a good idea, a more patterned one is a great start for someone who’s trying it on for the first time. Keep it simple when pairing it the first couple of times. Nothing beats the simplicity of an all black outfit coupled with the fierceness of a fur vest.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. And this dandy little planner has been my little buddy all along the way. I bought it back in the summer. After instantly falling in love with its beautiful front cover, the price was a nasty shock. But, i still went back to the store the very next day to purchase it. Its small enough to fit in a clutch but big enough to write those ten meetings i have to attend this week.

So the theme for this post quite quickly became; ‘on the go’ and this  protein packed bottle has been my absolute best friend. Its got a rich chocolatey taste with a whopping 17grams of protein; you know for those days i forget to take lunch to school.

I’m old school in a lot of ways and yes, writing letters is one of them. To me, its one of the most precious, personalized and timeless method of communication. Same goes for cards, i can’t help but go back to those text heavy cards and read about things i had forgotten, things i love and things i will always cherish. It always leave me feeling happy and wonderful.

Wish you guys a happy and healthy weekend.

Lots of love,

Dania
