Hair Review: Schwarzkopf Oil Miracle Shampoo

Es hora de un nuevo Hair Review! Como expliqué anteriormente, me gustó la idea de tener esta sección en el blog debido a que me encanta probarme distintos productos para el pelo. Tengo mucha cantidad de pelo y también mucho volumen por lo que usualmente busco productos para el pelo que contengan aceite para que me ayuden a tener el cabello más liso y a prevenir el frizz.
Últimamente, estaba usando el shampoo y acondicionador con aceite de argán de Black Diamond pero después de haberlos usado por un tiempo mi pelo comenzó a verse más rebelde y difícil de controlar. Además, me gusta alternar distintos productos para que mi cabello no se acostumbre a uno solo. Esta fue la razón por la cual me decidí a probar el shampoo Oil Miracle de Schwarzkopf que es bastante parecido al de Black Diamond ya que ambos tienen el componente de aceite.
Los pros de este shampoo son que también tiene las propiedades positivas del aceite de argán, tiene un perfume muy rico y suave y, además lo siento un poco menos pesado que el de Black Diamond.
Mi cabello se ve brillante y tiene de nuevo menos frizz, así que para mi el shampoo de Schwarzkopf  es una muy buena opción para ir alternando con otros productos y así mantener mi pelo lindo y saludable.


It's time for a new Hair Review! As I have explained before I liked the idea of having this section on my blog because I love to try different hair products. I have a big amount of hair and also a lot of volume so I usually go for hair products with oil to make my hair smooth and to prevent frizz. 
I was using the shampoo and conditioner with argain oil from Black Diamond but after using these products for a while my hair started to be less smooth and controllable. In addition I tend to alternate shampoo so that my hair doesn't get used to a certain product. So that's why I decided to try the Oil Miracle Shampoo from Schwarzkopf which is similar to the one from Black Diamond because both have the oil component. 
The pros of this shampoo are that it still has the good properties of argan oil, it has a really nice and soft scent and I feel it a little bit less heavy than the one from Black Diamond. 
My hair is shinning and it has again less frizz, so for me the Schwarzkopf shampoo is a very good option to alternate with other products and keep my hair healthy and looking good.

Tips for finding the perfect dress

December is a month full of activities. As we approach the year end, there are a lot of parties we need to attend, whether is the year end party from our work or a friend’s party, for each of these occasions we would need a perfect dress.
Every time one of my friends has a special event in which they need to use a dress they always ask me for guidance. Not only regarding the shape of the dress or the color that would suit them best but also they always ask me about places to find a good dress.
That’s because finding the perfect dress is not an easy task. So when I found out about Aviva Dress, a web store especially dedicated to party dresses I thought that it was the perfect place. They offer a great variety of options for every occasion, from prom dresses, evening dresses, formal dresses to cocktail and bridesmaid dresses.
Another positive aspect of this website it’s that the dresses are very well categorized for every different type of event and also they have a lot of filters to use, such as color, fabric, length, in order to make it easier for you to find the dress you are looking for.
So in order to find the perfect dress, I would suggest asking these two questions:
The first one would be: which type of event are we going to attend? This will let us know if we need to look for a more formal dress or not. For example, if it’s an event from work the best option would be to choose a cocktail dress, since this is the most versatile type, but if we are attending to a more formal event, we may need to look for a long dress.




The second question would be: what image we would like to present? This will help us to decide between the different styles depending on if we want to look sexy, or chic or sophisticated.
For example, if we want to look classic and chic the best option would be to look for a little black dress, because this is a timeless piece that allows us to use it for a lot of different occasions and also we can always show our personal touch by using different accessories with it.






But if we want to look sexy and attract the attention to us we would definitely need to look for a red dress. This color will make us stand out from the crowd and show to everybody else that we know how to take risks.





The last tip I can share about buying the perfect dress would be to take time to do the search and not to leave this for the last minute. If you have more time to look for your perfect dress you can review more options calmly and then choose the best one. So here are more options from Aviva Dress, hope you like them!

Trend: Denim on Denim

Hay muchas posibilidades cuando pensamos en denim, ya sea que usemos un par de jeans o una camisa de denim, una campera o una falda, siempre podremos vernos cómodas, juveniles y casuales con este material.
El denim se uso en principio para la mayoria de las prendas de trabajo, como por ejemplo para los mineros y vaqueros (de ahí que también se utilice esa denominación para los pantalones), debido a su resistencia y durabilidad pero después de la segunda guerra mundial comenzó a formar parte del guardarropa casual. Este cambio también fue impulsado por la industria cinematográfica que popularizó los jeans a partir de la película "Rebelde sin causa".
Actualmente una de las últimas tendencias es usar más de una pieza de denim en un mismo conjnto. El secreto para lograr una buena combinación es que las prendas tengan una leve diferencia en el color. Les dejo algunas imágenes de cómo las bloggers combinaron sus looks de denim con denim.

There are a lot of possibilities when we think about denim, whether we use a pair of jeans or a denim shirt, jacket or a skirt, we will always look comfortable, youthful and casual with this fabric.
The denim was at first used for most of the working clothes, for example for miners, cowboys, because of its resistance and durability but after the second world war it started to be a part of the people's spare time wardrobe. This was also a result of the cinematographic industry that made the jeans popular with the movie "Rebel without a Cause".
Nowadays, one of the latest trends is to wear more than one piece of denim. The secret to style this trend correctly is to try to use denim clothes that have some difference in the color.
Take a look on how this bloggers style their denim on denim looks.
