I hope you are all enjoying the holidays and had an amazing Christmas! I personally feel like I have been in a food coma for the past week, and it doesn’t really help that I have been partaking in so many family stewing sessions aka couch potato/cuddling sessions. However, New Years is creeping up on us and I have been getting tons of questions on makeup products that I recommend for an ultra-glam holiday look. I decided to break it up into categories, so today we are going to be taking a look at some of my holy grail/favourite highlighters as well as some tips on how to make your highlight pop on extraterrestrial levels! Most of the products I’m talking about have actually been around for quite some time, but you know how it goes: #oldbutgold.

Must-Have Products For Colour-Treated Hair

I get a lot of questions about the products I use to soften the blow of the bleach/colour process that went down to achieve my blonde hair.

Sunday Brunchday: Motto am Fluss

It’s Sunday: A day to crank up couch-potato/stewing mode another notch. A day to netflix & actually chill — or not chill (do you, boo). A day to low-key stress about everything you have coming up this week, but can act like you don’t care because it’s still the weekend… and let’s be honest, the weekday anxiety only starts to kick in at around 8:00pm. But most importantly, it is a day for BRUNCHING.

The monochrome life is the life for me! Absolutely loved shooting this effortless biker-chic look. Amazing how drastically a jacket can change the overall look of a super simple LBD. Leather jackets are such versatile and staple pieces & can really pull together any outfit. The perfect leather is always a go-to for me. How about you?

Hello you!

Hello you!

Guess who’s finally back?! It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally in a place where I have the time to really work on this blog and make it everything I envision it to be. As some of you may know, I started this blogging adventure with Es de la Mode a couple of years ago, and believe me I was so excited. The only issue was timing — I was so excited about creating and going live with the site, that I didn’t even consider the fact that I was entering one of the busiest periods of my life.
