I just had dinner after a day at the University. Luckily, I start quite late on Mondays, so I could sleep in this morning. Other than that, I’ve had a lovely and relaxed weekend and now I’m watching some O.C. before going for a walk and continuing to clean up my room a bit… Well, enough of my interesting Monday! Recently, I’ve gotten questions about how I’ve managed to get so long hair without it being super damaged. Well, for starters, I have let it grow for years only cutting it perhaps four times a year (and then I cut off a maximum 4 cm. or so). I have never dyed it, never had highlights done nor even toned my hair, so it’s pretty virgin! I also use heat tools on it and blow dry it less than once a month. I’ve recently started using Natura Siberica shampoo and conditioner, which is super good! Hopefully I can get my hands on a scent called “White Cedar” that smells divine later this week. I also recently started using Bumble & Bumble’s Don’t Blow It, which is quite nice since I almost never blow dry my hair. I also use Lush’s No Drought dry shampoo and Kérastase Cristalliste Cristal Sculpt. And then, last but not least, I adore my new Mason Pearson Boar Bristle & Nylon brush and my Balmain Hair Perfume. The Mason Pearson brush is really good at detangling my hair and distributing oil from the scalp throughout the hair, giving it a gorgeous shine. The Balmain Hair Perfume makes hair very shiny too and it has a lovely scent, perfect for finishing off my beauty look!
Studying all day means comfy clothes, sleepy eyes and hair out of the way. I don’t know if you guys can see it, but I got a really pretty bra from Victoria’s Secret that has lace straps in the back – perfect for my many backless tees (this one’s bought in Bali). We also went for a walk in the snow and my personal hair stylist – also known as my boyfriend – braided my hair, I’ve never had cornrows before but I actually think it’s really cute! And trendy… Anyway, we just had dinner and now we’re going to watch Star Wars because I’ve never seen any of them before and we’re going to watch “The Force Awakens” on Friday. May the force be with you.
More Christmas presents! Among some other gorgeous gifts, I got this wonderful hair perfume by Balmain from my sweet little sister. I’ve already used it a couple of times and it smells delightful and makes my hair shine and not tangle as much as it usually does… I love that it’s called “hair couture” too – very fancy. I’m not feeling particularly fancy at the moment. I got a headache last night and I’ve been feeling pretty bad most of last night and today… I’m feeling better now after spending all the day eating and watching TV series. I think I’m going to take a bath or a shower, go to bed and then I’m going to study most of tomorrow.
Good evening! I hope you all had a nice Monday. I’ve pretty much been busy all day… These pics are from Saturday night when it first started snowing – and it snowed a lot! We took a walk in the forest even though it was rather late. It was all white and magical as it usually is when it snows for the first time. I’m wearing no makeup, my beloved Marabou feather jacket, Grandma’s home knitted scarf and my beanie from The Kooples. I almost never wear my hair in a herringbone braid like this, but it’s actually quite pretty, don’t you think?
