CLOSET CLEANING ft. PACT ♡

Hello my loves! It's been a while, I know, but my schedule is so hectic that it's a miracle I actually found the time to even make this post. Between working two jobs, going to college and trying to stay healthy and maintain a social life, I unfortunately had to cut back on something I enjoy so much. Nonetheless, I do want to get back on track with my posts. 

Anyways, today I am collaborating with Pact in order to discuss a very important issue, cleaning your closet. I am absolutely sure that each and everyone of you that is reading this post has at least some form of clutter in their closet. Whether it is clothes that you never wear, or old pieces that you need to throw out, or even things that you don't even remember having in there.

Cleaning your closet might sound like a dreadful thing to do but, believe me, you will feel so much better when you're done. It's like cleaning a space in you head and in your life. Plus, by getting rid of things you have no use for, you make room for new and better things to come.

You can rediscover clothes and accessories that you used to love and wear them again, you can throw away or have repaired some pieces that have holes etc. and, of course, you can donate a bunch to charity, or even to your friends. 

If you are also looking for ways to maintain a clean and organised closet, my tip has to be constant care. Meaning that you need to put every garment you wear back at it's place immediately and not let it sit for days on your bed or "the chair". Other than that, a great tip is also to place your hangers facing you (the curvy back of the hanger not facing you) and place them the other way when you wear them and put them back in the closet. This way, at the end of each season, you will be able to tell which clothes you haven't worn at all, since the curvy back of those hangers will still be facing the other way.

You can use shopping as a motivation to clean since, after cleaning your closet you will not only have tons of free space but you will also be fully aware of your possessions and you will be able to shop smarter for yourself.

On that topic, it is crucial to understand that it is better for you and for the environment to purchase clothes made of organic and recyclable materials. Instead of impulse buying, you can do some research and start purchasing ethically made clothes from now on. 

If you don't know where to start, you can check out wearpact.com and scroll through their lovely selection of clothes with no toxic dyes or pesticides from a company that ensures the well being of their workers and their manufacturers. 

What are your thoughts on cleaning your closet and opting for sustainable, organic clothing? I sure know I am a fan! Let me know what you think in the comments below ♥

FALL HAIR HACKS ft. eSALON ♡

Hello my loves! How are you all this lovely day? Personally I am so overwhelmed with work and college and that is why I have been m.i.a. Anyways, I'm back with a beauty post! I know you guys enjoy these as much as I do.
Today, I am going to share with you my fall hair hacks. In my circle, it is common knowledge that hair is my ish. I have a ton and it is very long and voluminous. Anybody who needs hair tips and tricks always comes to me and I try not to fail them. I have tried plenty of things and I know what works and what doesn't and I love to help.

Singing in the shower

My first tip definitely has to be about hair washing. In my personal experience, good hair days start in the shower. It is important that you pick a shampoo that suits your hair type and not use just anything that is cheap or your roommates are using. 
Another thing that you need to keep in mind, is not washing daily. I do understand that it's hard not to wash when your hair feels flat and oily and you've only just washed it the day before.
But, hear me out. Washing daily will, yes, clean your hair and your scalp - but it will also strip your skin from its natural oils (that are actually beneficial). 
If you have thick and dry hair, you can get away with washing once a week. If you have normal hair just go for 2-3 times a week and, if you have very thin and oily hair, try to leave a day between washingσ. 
Your hair will be stronger and it you will experience less hair loss.

Rapunzel Goals

When you have tons of long, blonde hair (like I do) it goes without saying that people will call you Rapunzel. And, like I mentioned above, that they will ask your secret for growing long hair.
I think it all has to do with the way you treat your hair. If you use heat on a daily basis (for curls, straightening etc.) you're damaging your hair. Big time. It is only natural that it will get burned over time, grow weaker and have tons of split ends. That is not a cute look.
If you want your hair to grow and be healthy you need to let it rest and embrace it's natural shape. It will thank you after a few months. If you want to use hot tools occasionally, it's fine. Just don't forget to prep with heat protectant.

If none of the above works, you might want to change your nutrition and try to be healthy from the inside out.

STYLE FILE: FALL SLIDES ♡

Good evening darlings! How are you all these first few days of fall? Can you believe it's September already? I can't. It feels like summer just flew by so fast, but I guess that's what always happens. Anyway, I'm really pumped for fall because I could really use a break from the suffocating summer heat and I can't wait to put together some great fall posts for you guys♥

I also have been dying to go back to fall clothing and makeup. You guys know that I am a sucker for jackets, boots dark lipstick and nails. But, we still have some time till we reach that point. 

For now, we are trying to create transitional outfits that won't let us down while the weather is still hot. Now, the last summer item that I find myself parting with are shoes. I mean, even during the winter you can wear your sandal heels (with or without tights).


In September it's easy to wear jeans and sandals. But, if you want to be more city-appropriate and stylish af, I suggest you opt for slides. These past few seasons they have been all over the place and, even though I was a bit sceptical at first, I have grown quite fond of them. Especially the extravagant ones with the feathers/ pearls etc, since they are the ideal way to dress up a simple outfit. All you need to spice up a total black outfit, is a pair of fun and daring slides. 


Also, since my feet get super cold during the winter, I find that now is the perfect time to wear them. They are trendy, chic, comfortable and quite versatile. You can wear them with jeans, dresses, skirts, shorts and there are so many different styles to choose from. You could go for the leather Gucci ones that are very polished and office appropriate, for the suede camel colored ones if you want to embrace the fall mood, or choose a pair with fur, prints etc if you are feeling playful and adventurous.

Personally, I am very much enjoying my slides! What about you guys? What is your go-to shoe choice for early fall? Let me know in the comments below ♥

COCKTAILS & POPCORN ft. SkinnyPop ♡

Hello my loves! How are you feeling now that summer is coming to an end? I am obviously really sad and I feel that it went by so fast but, at the same time, I am so happy for all the experiences that I had and all the memories. Also, I am particularly excited for fall, because September is when we start getting back in schedule and everyone is around again and the weather is nice.

Speaking of nice weather, there is nothing I enjoy more than outdoor celebrations. Fall is the perfect time to do such a thing since it's not too warm nor too cold and it's very befitting if you want to celebrate new beginnings or just see your friends again after the summer break. 

Now, there are numerous things you could do, from picnics to game nights to cooking mexican food with friends-which is my favorite. But, they all most certainly include alcohol. I don't particularly enjoy any booze other than wine (yay for rosé ♥), so cocktails really save the day when it comes to drinking something else. They are also much more boujee, fashionable and ladylike ;)



If you are like me and you can't quite understand those people who drink whiskey neat, then I am sure you are going to love the cocktails that my friends from SkinnyPop put together. I think there is one for every taste and they also propose some pairings with their uniquely flavored popcorn! I think the White peach Sangria one would taste divine!

I don't know about you, but I am dying to try out these cocktails and combinations at my next get-together with friends! What about you guys? What is your go-to drink for occasions like that? Let me know in the comments below ♥

BLOUSE SHIRT WISHLIST ft. ZAFUL ♡

Hello my darlings! Are you enjoying the last days of summer in your trendy blouse shirt from Zaful? I'm just trying to relax and recharge and get some vitamin D before I get back to my hectic everyday schedule. To be honest though, I'm kinda excited to see what the new season has to offer ♥

One of the reasons I like the early fall is the weather. It's not too hot nor too cold (most of the days) and you can do a lovely mix and match with your summer and your fall clothes and be stylish af. I feel like one key element in most closets this time of the year, is the shirt. Not only it is very classy and, without a doubt, a timeless staple, but it's also quite versatile.

You can wear it in so many different ways, with jeans, shorts, chinos, skirts and even on it's own as a dress. You can layer it with a sweater or a stylish jacket or use it as a cover-up for the beach. The possibilities are endless and you could say that a shirt is a safe bet when you are in doubt.

Thus, I teamed up with Zaful to share with you some of my favorite shirts from their website!
