Effortlessly undone hair

It’s no secret that when it comes to hair I like it au natural. That’s just how I roll. The only issue with my natural waves is the lack of texture they have. Often my hair looks pretty lively and bouncy when I leave the house. But when I’m out and…

Fashion blogger things: Instagram editing

Let’s talk about editing for Instagram. Instagram has changed a lot over the years I’d say.

Day in a life of Frederique Bos (La Mer beauty treatment)

Review: My experience with La Mer skincare

by

Well I don’t know about you, but I dislike wearing makeup when I’m at home. My home is supposed to be the place where I feel at ease with myself. And there’s just something about a full face that makes me feel uncomfortable. Thus, chances are if you’re ringing my door bell on…
