Trend Alert: Dutch Braids

Would you rock this trendy hairstyle? Read more for the low-down & how-to

Processed with VSCOcam with 4 preset

Looking for a fun way to spice up your style? DUTCH BRAIDS!

I’ve been seeing this hairstyle EVERYWHERE. Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest.. you name it! This a quick and easy hairstyle that will be huge in 2016.

Street style has been trending for a while now. The art of taking “casual” and turning it into “coveted” has become the new norm and I’m loving it 👌🏼Now… street stye doesn’t just stop at runners, fitted sweats, and a basic tee – this hairstyle is a perfect finishing touch. It adds a sense of intricacy while still maintaining that “I didn’t try too hard” feel. I really do love the look of it. Plus it’s great if you just want an easy hairstyle to get your hair out of your face!

Processed with VSCOcam with 4 presetThe How To:

  • To begin, part the hair either down the middle or where your hair naturally parts
  • Clip one half up and separate the other half of hair into three small sections at the scalp
  • Tuck each outside section underneath the middle section
  • Continuously add to the three sections as you braid from the scalp to the ends
  • Keep braiding until you get to the very ends of your hair, then tie with a clear elastic.
  • Repeat on other half of hair

As you can tell, a dutch braid is basically an inverted french braid, so if you know how to french braid your hair, this will come easy. The biggest difference between a dutch braid and a french braid is that you cross the three sections underneath each other so the braid is raised up rather than flat to the scalp. Personally, I love the more “raised up” look. It adds volume and shape that isn’t usually possible with a french braid. I also like to tug at the braids after they’re secured to make them a little loser and make my hair look thicker. Seriously loving this style! You’ll definitely be seeing a lot of it on my InstagramProcessed with VSCOcam with 4 presetWould you rock this trendy dutch braid look?

Summer Travel Essentials

Read more about my top 5 summer getaway essentials!

With winter quickly coming to a close, all I can seem to think about is SUMMER. I can’t wait to pull out my sunnies, hit the beach, and get Summer 2016 off to a great start.

It’s so much fun to plan weekend trips with my closest friends during the summertime, so I’ve teamed up with HomeAway to bring you my Weekend Getaway Travel Essentials.


First off, I gotta have my sunscreen! These days, I don’t seem to go anywhere without my sun protection 🙂 I make protecting my skin a major priority because sunscreen has been proven to help with anti-aging. With all the knowledge we have on the link between prolonged sun exposure and skin cancer, I think this should be an essential for everyone. My favorite sunscreen is the Sanitas Solar Block. It’s oil-free and lightweight, plus it doesn’t clog my pores at all and it’s made with anti-aging ingredients like Micronized Zinc Oxide and antioxidant vitamins.

My second getaway essential is my sunnies! Not only do they add the perfect finishing touch to any summer outfit, they also protect my eyes from harmful UV Rays. I’ve been LOVING this pair that I recently picked up at the Nasty Gal store on Melrose!

I also have to bring some healthy snacks. I’m that girl that always has snacks around. Being a vegan, it’s often difficult to find food on-the-go so I make sure to bring healthy options like fruits, veggies, nuts, dried fruits, coconut water, and my favorite Vega nutrition bars.

Another cute (and useful) summer essential is my floppy hat! I love having the sun out of my face with this accessory. It really creates my own, personal, little shade while I’m sunbathing or taking a nice walk along the beach. VSCO Cam-1

The last essential I have to have with me on any weekend getaway shouldn’t come as any surprise. My flip flops! I can’t go to the beach without a cute pair of sandals. They just make it super easy to get in and out of the water as I please without worrying about ruining my shoes! Plus I get to show off my cute summertime pedicures 😉

So those are my top 5 summer getaway essentials. My dream getaway destination would be somewhere like Bora Bora. How amazing does this look?! Gorgeous waters and sunny skies! Now that’s what I’m talking about!  If you can’t get to Bora Bora, the Florida Panhandle has some gorgeous beaches as well!

Where would your dream getaway take you?

OrganiClear Acne Treatment System | My Skin is Clear | Roxette Arisa

(With this coupon code, you’ll get 5% OFF, FREE Shipping, and a FREE green eco-friendly bag)
Hi everyone! I’m super excited to share today’s video with you. OrganiClear contacted me and sent me their Acne Treatment System about a month ago. Ever since then, I’ve been using the system morning and night. The results have been amazing!! I honestly have never had such clear skin in my life. I know what you might say… “This is a sponsored video etc. etc.”, but trust me guys… if I didn’t actually love this product and believe that it worked… I would not be telling you about it right now. That being said, this skincare range is incredible. If you start using it, you will see a difference. The main difference between OrganiClear and other acne product lines is that the main acne-fighting ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, is micronized. Which means the particles are so small, they can get deep inside the pore and thoroughly clean your skin from the inside. If you go back to some of my older videos, you can really see a difference in my skin. I’ve had way less breakouts and the texture of my skin has improved so much since using this Acne Treatment System. FINALLY – an acne range that doesn’t dry out my skin or give me any irritation and the best part is – it actually works!
Please note: OrganiClear is an Acne Treatment System. Products are not sold individually and are not to be used individually. You must use them only twice a day. It’s super easy – I will tell you more about it in the video!

Chit Chat GRWM: Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette | First Impression Talk Through Tutorial

Kat Von Di Palette Chit Chat GRWM

FIRST OFF: Did anyone know Kat Von D was coming out with a Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette? Yes… you heard me right. An EYE CONTOUR PALETTE. Um… what’s that you ask? Yeah… I asked the same exact thing. LOL. It’s basically a contouring / highlighting/ bronzing palette for your eyes. If that’s still not clearing things up for you, all of the shades in this palette are matte neutrals. This means there is no sparkle or shine whatsoever, and because all the shades are neutrals, they’re perfect for everyday wear and tear. The palette comes with 12 eyeshadows – a mix of warm shades and cool tone shades. 3 of the shadows are extra large – with my skin tone, these shades are GREAT for highlighting/contouring my cheeks – which just makes this palette a double-wammy of goodness! The other 9 eyeshadows are just BEAUTIFUL! Like I said, they’re a mix of warm tones and cool tones – so you can create a wide range of looks quite easily. The shades included are: Laetus (creamy nude), Lazarus (cool taupe), Ludwin (peachy bronze), Samael (dusty fawn), Saleos (smoky brown), Succubus (rich rust), Solas (espresso brown), Shax (jet black), Sytry (chocolate brown), Lucius (soft beige), Liberatus (pinkish ivory), Latinus (golden bisque). ALL MATTE. These shades were created to easily contour the eye area – resulting in bigger, bolder looking eyes.

I wanted to do another Chit Chat Get Ready With Me Video as well as a First Impression Review and Talk Through Tutorial because well… I’ve really been loving the chit-chatty videos lately. Just talking to you guys as friends has been such a nice change up 🙂 So get ready for a long one– in this Get Ready With Me video I’ll be doing a makeup look with a warm neutral eye using the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette paired with a metallic coral lip with the Too Faced Melted Metal Lipstick in Melted Debutante. Enjoy!! xx
