Blunt-Cut Bangs

If adding fringe has been on your radar, take note that thick, blunt-cut bangs are officially a thing. Channel a ‘90s vibe with slightly scrunched curls or use a round brush to add a demure polished bend.

Gilded Hair Accessories

Fortunately, our favorite hair decorations look spectacular with effortless, slightly tousled locks. If you’re constantly running out the door with disheveled bedhead, adding a golden barrette will save the day every time.

Slicked Back Hair

Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are constantly photographed rocking super-sleek, slicked-back ponytails. For those with a penchant for a middle part, you can get the same look by gathering the hair the nape of the neck and pinning into a loose chignon.

Printed Head Scarves

Have you always loved the romantic notion of wearing a head scarf? Us too! The key to landing this timeless look is to pull a section of hair out the front to help frame the face. Pair with oversize sunnies and a convertible sports car.

Glamorous Evening Curls

Dramatic, glamorous curls are back. Whether you opt for disco-inspired volume or ’20s sleek waves, this evening look is perfect for the fast-approaching wedding season.

Valentia Skin Care: The Review


Hello Friends,

It’s a new year! What other way would be more exciting to start off my first post back since my small hiatus? I know! By bringing you a product review!

I got the wonderful opportunity to work with a skin care company called Valentia Skin Care. As you all know, I’ve been a product junky for years. So when I accepted these products I didn’t know what I was getting into. I honestly never heard of their skin care line before, but since I’m always curious to try new things here we are:)

I was given two products which where the True Glow Eye Cream and the Ultra Pumping Hydration Mask. With these products you can use them In the morning and at night. I love having options!:) I decided to try these products right as I woke up because that’s when I feel my face needs the most love.

As you can see this is a good amount of product, The packaging is also very simple and pretty.  The first product I wanted to try was the Ultra Pumping Hydration MaskLately I’ve been feeling my face has been looking really dull and needing major moisture. The benefits of this mask were exactly what my face needed. This mask boosts Collagen production, Increases skin radiance, Reduces fine lines, and best of all secures skin moisture. And what I really liked best is it’s truly made of natural products like Japanese Green Tea,  Aloe Vera, and Organic Rosehip Oil.

I applied evenly to my face for about 30 minutes I felt a slight tingling sensation as its notated on the box, Don’t worry, this was completely normal. The mask felt nice and cool and the texture was perfect for me as I prefer a thicker mask, this one had perfect balance. Once I wiped off the product with a warm damp cloth as instructed, I instantly felt rejuvenated. My skin looked brighter and more awake:)

BTW, notice the orange tint on my face? That’s just the face mask on (last picture)

Now, I was really excited to get the True Glow Eye Cream on my eyes. All my life I have had dark circles, it’s a genetic thing, but I always try to find products to hide it. The great thing about this True Glow Eye Cream is that it reduces wrinkles, nourishes and hydrates, tightens eye area, brightens dark circles and restores radiance. Just like the mask, it has natural ingredients (Vitamin C, Organic Rosehip oil and Arnica)

Using this product was pretty straight forward, I applied a small amount to my eye area using a gentle padding motion, as recommended. I instantly felt a cooling sensation around my eyes. Don’t be fooled by its thin texture, a little goes a long way.

VIOLA! My after results! You can noticeably see how refreshed my face looks after just one application of each product!

As you can see, my dark circles are still a little bit noticeable, but this product obviously reduced a great amount of it after the first try.  I can’t wait to see how much difference it will make after a couple of weeks!

Below are some more pictures 30-40 minutes after the products were removed, and, if you compare it to the initial picture, you can see how much different these products make me look.  I look refreshed and ready to start my day!

Winter Jewel Tones!

Hello Friends,

I’m still dreaming of my trip, I know I’ve been back for almost a week I just can’t help it:).  On this particular day we decided to take a break from our activities, we played in the snow and just enjoyed the beauty. So blessed to have been able to do something like this. Though I said Good bye to Vail a week ago, it’ll forever live in my dreams and memories.

Love, chicki

Let It Snow!

Hello Friends,

A couple of weeks ago my husband surprised me with an amazing birthday surprise to Vail, Colorado. I have always wanted to see the mountains, and I’m so happy he listened and made this possible. When we arrived to -14 degree weather we knew, we where in for some cold days. Luckily he told me pack very warmly which I did. I made sure that even though it was in negative temperatures , I didn’t lose the chance to look cute. Our first morning, there was a snow fall it truly felt like I was in a winter wonderland.

Love, chicki

In the City: Beauty Con NYC

Hello Friends,

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to attend Beauty Con in NYC! I spent the day visiting vendor booths, scoring free samples, and best of all meeting fellow beauty bloggers. For my look I knew I wanted to be comfortable I’ve been eyeing duster coats for awhile now and I finally scored one. The weather was cold that weekend so bundling up wasn’t an option. I can truly say it was such an amazing day and I can’t wait to attend next year!

Love,

Chicki

Shades of Fall

Hello Friends,
I can’t believe Summer has officially ended even though we are still experiencing major heat, and awful rain. Nonetheless It’s still my favorite time of the year, and you know what that means! No not Pumpkin Spice Lattes, It’s dark Lippie season. Yes girls start taking out those perfect wine colors. What’s fascinating is that even though we adore a dark shade, this Fall we will be seeing a lot more lighter colors surface. I’m totally digging changing it up this fall with my lippies!
