Ever so pure

Over the past few years, my hair has grown to become at times brittle, coarse, dry, and sometimes just broken down (especially the ends). I don't know the exact causes—it could be at times when I travel and just overall stress that comes with it, it could be the consequences of dyed hair, or it could even be aging—but I try and maintain it by moisturizing it the best that I can.

Every so often I'll use L'oreal's EverCrème Intense Nourishing shampoo and conditioner, and instantly feel and see a lift in my hair. Both are free of harsh sulfates and parabens, and both have natural omega 3 and 6 to help hydrate hair. Once a week I'll run the shampoo and massage it into my scalp to cleanse; I'll follow up with the EverCreme conditioner and apply throughout my hair. While I lather up on body and face wash, I'll leave the conditioner on so that my hair really soaks it in. I find that the benefit of any conditioner is maximized this way. Once finished, I come out feeling refreshed and totally detangled, both literally and figuratively.

On other days, because my hair is ombre'd, I'll use L'Oreal's EverPure Blonde Shade Reviving Treatment. It does what it says it does- prevents the blonde from getting brassy but maintains the shine. Because I’m rather low maintenance on my hair, it's imperative I maintain it with shampoo and conditioner that actually work. Just thought I'd share my latest favorites.

Does anyone else remember their travels, time and space, and events by smell? Personally, fragrances are the first to invoke sweet memories of places and of endearing encounters with people. One day I'm transported back to wistful alleyways in Paris, and then to New York on my way home to the states. The next I'm grazing on pineapple on the beaches of Tulum just days before being back home to Los Angeles, where I'll take a short pitstop before immersing in the electrifying air of Tokyo.

Here you have all of my favorite moments and environments bottled up for me to remember, collected from my trips throughout the past few years x

Day one

Throwing a statement coat over a muted canvas is my approach to a winter’s day in LA. Loving how versatile this faux fur crop is - it’s quite easy to layer and is just as flattering with lighter colors as it is against dark colors. Found this one perusing all the good wintry coats at A&F, along with these perfectly destructed and cropped flared jeans that actually fit very well from hip to mid-leg (for a short girl). My denim go-to since day one.
