Growing Pains

Recently, I’ve been trying to grow my hair out after rocking my short haircut for almost a year. Maybe I shouldn’t be complaining too much since my hair grows quite fast, but sometimes it’s frustrating. I should’ve known that growing my hair back wasn’t going to be easy after watching my mom’s struggle years ago. And I can’t say I wasn’t warned by her because I was, but my exact words were “Its just hair! It’s going to grow out anyways!” Apparently, my need of changing my hairstyle didn’t let me see beyond the Rosemarie Woodhouse stylish haircut. Now that I want my long locks back, I can definitely understand my mom’s despair. The truth is, there’s always going to be that moment when you’re not going to know how to style your hair, how to trim it without cutting too much or how to stop it from looking like a mullet or like Justin Bieber just landed on your head.
So, here’re some tips that helped me over the past few months that will make your growing-your-hair-back-experience a pleasant one. Plus, some pictures of my hair growth. ^_^

-          Headbands and hair clips are your best friend. At this stage, accessories not only make you look chic or cute but they’re also necessary to help you “tame” your hair.

-          Your hair it’s not cooperating today, wear a hat.

-          Trim it when it’s needed. This won’t make your hair grow faster but it will get rid of the split ends and the mullet that may be creeping back into your head.

-          Give your scalp a massage. This will stimulate blood flow, which helps feed the hair follicles.

-          Be patient. I know it’s hard but think about your goal of having your long locks back!

My obsessive obsession: Off to never, never-land

I remember the first time I used a Peter Pan collar blouse. I was five years old and it was part of my school uniform. Probably, that’s why I love them so much. This classic look makes me remember those days when life used to be so much easier and I could stuff myself with candy and spend countless hours in the swims or playing hide and seek. Not to mention, they are also IN this fall as the 60’s make a come-back to the runway. Here I bring you some cool ways to wear a Peter Pan collar.

Detachable collar: This is an easy way to get that Peter Pan collar without investing in a top or a dress. You can attach this trendy accessory to your favorite garment.

Blouses: Weather you’re wearing a chic or sophisticated top, Peter Pan collars are a way to add that cute feminine touch to it.

Dresses: This is another great way of wearing Peter Pan collars. Wear them with lace, embellished, printed, rare cuts, color block or maxi dresses.

The Look Book: Gwen Stefani Edition

I know Mother’s Day was days ago, but everyday should be Mother’s Day! That’s why I’ve decided to choose a celebrity mom that I really admire.

I chose Gwen Stefani, because I’ve always admired her, before even becoming a mom. I grew up listening to No Doubt and she always seemed so strong and with such an energy, that made me want to be like her. Now that she’s not only the front woman of the ska/ pop group No Doubt, with a solo career and a clothing line, she’s also a wife and the mother of two boys. Talk about being multi-talented and a multi-tasker! She’s a role model for any women and she’s stronger than ever! (I‘m not just saying she‘s strong because she can still do push up‘s while performing “Just a Girl“, even though, it’s pretty impressive.)

So, I hope you enjoy it and my admiration goes to all strong mothers that give a 110% for their kids!
