I have been on a sunglasses-buying-binge lately. I don't know why, but this season there seem to be so many cute pairs of shades out there, and since I wear sunglasses 90% of the time during summer, they are the easiest way to lift an outfit to that next level. Whether it is by adding interest, by making you seem cooler than you are, or by hiding bags under your eyes (my favourite tip to not look undead after 24h of travel) - sunnies do the trick. I've gathered up some of my favourite on-trend options that won't break the bank, but will make you look like an insta-model.

My number one fav this season is the coloured lense aviator. This pair is just $7.99 and available in yellow, blue and pink. I have a pink pair as well as a yellow pair - one pair short of an obsession. But you can call it an infatuation. If aviators don't suit your face (I don't look good in most types of aviators either), here are two other options for that retro tinted lense look. These red cat eye shape tinted shades are super cute, only $9, and also available in 5 other colours. The red is my fav though. Would look hella cute with red lipstick. 

The other option is of course the round John Lennon type frames! Pink always has my heart, but if you want to keep things more mysterious, go for the brown lenses - both just $6. Best option to hide tired eyes (or a resting bitchface). Finally, the $8 round, white frames with black lenses. Very retro, very on trend, and surprisingly hard to pull off. I ordered a pair off Forever21 and looked like a bug eyed alien, but I'm determined to keep looking until I find a shape that works for me. Maybe slightly elongated into a cat-eye like shape. If you have any tips, send em my way!

Are you still lusting after a particular type of sunglasses?

Beauty: shiny locks with Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry

Beauty: shiny locks with Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry

Let me just come out and say it: bleaching your hair does not make it shinier, healthier or easier to style. And yet, most of us go through with it at some point in our lives, whether it is to try a bright colour, to hide our grays or to go blonde. I'm currently going through a blonde period and I'm absolutely loving most parts of it. I love how I look better in warm based colours now (give me all the rose gold jewelry), and the beachy vibe is perfect for summer. 

However, while I used to be able to let my hair airdry and have it look, well, pretty good, this is not the case anymore. My locks look the best by far if I either blowdry for a sleek look, or if I want a more casual look: if I let my ends dry naturally while my hair is up in a bun (great way to get those pretty, beachy waves). I particularly need to baby my ends. Even though they have benefited greatly from the Smartbond treatment I got during my third round of highlights - my hair actually feels and looks healthier than it did before those highlights - I still try to limit heat damage to a minimum by using the right protecting and smoothing products. Hair oil has become my best bud.

I was recently sent the new Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry range to test, and when I saw the results I knew I had to tell you guys about it. Let's take a look!

Travel: California diaries - roadtrip Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo

Today I will share another part of our trip to California with you, more specifically the first leg of our roadtrip, between Oceanside and San Luis Obispo, with stops in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara! I have very fond memories of this particular jampacked day, and I'm happy to revisit those beautiful moments.
