Latest Trend: Urban Essentials (3 min read)

Hey guys! I hope that you’re all having a great day.

This will be my first ever post related to ongoing/latest fashion trends. Therefore, if you enjoy reading this post let me know! I will continue to post them everytime that they change 🙂


The first trend I will talk to you about is my absolute favourite.

#Inspiration:

Urban Essentials is inspired by the catwalk shows of Clover Canyon; Red Valentino and Celine. It’s great that many high-street stores follow these influences and allow us to keep up with the latest trends in an affordable way!

Colour Palette:

It consists of a sharp palette of black; camel; cream and tones of blue. Furthermore, a contrast of Chilli Pepper adds excitement into the collection!

Style:

Overall, this trend is delivering a sporty, 90s feel to me. This is probably why I’m so drawn to it – I love to be comfortable and keep up with the latest fashion. This lets me have both!


Now, let’s be more fun. I went into my local New Look store and picked out my two go-to outfits & some must have accessory pieces from the Urban Essentials section.

Outfit #1:

For my first outfit I want to show you how to style a mesh, boyfriend tee for an everyday look.

The first way I’d wear it is with a white, sporty crop top that will pop the colour through the mesh. Pair it up with some acid wash jeggings and tah dah! I’m really loving this outfit.

The second way I’d wear the mesh tee would be with a plain tank top. This might be a great option for those of you that would not be comfortable with showing too much skin.

Outfit #2:

This outfit will be perfect for these lazy days that you still want to look as if you made effort.

A red jumper will make you look fun and show a chilled vibe. I love how many different colours and styles are available in this jumper! So if you are not a red lover, definitely check out the different styles.

Accessories:

Major must haves are for sure chokers’, fluffy pom-poms and high platform trainers.

The black, high platform trainers will make your legs appear slimmer and longer *how great* and will literally go with any outfit. It’s a great pair to own.

The fluffy pom-poms will be a great accessory to your backpacks/handbags and even a cute way to carry keys! I own at least three different ones and my collection keeps on growing. Once you start buying it will be endless.

And then we have the chokers. Everyone has gone crazy for them and I totally love them too!

My personal favourite styles of chokers are shown below:

But there are so many available!

Overall, I am in love with this trend – it is so me.

The biggest staple here is the acid wash jeggings. They are way more comfy than normal jeans and add a fun vibe to every outfit you pair them with. Do any of you guys own a pair of jeggings? I have about five now.

Jacques Andre Salon: Don’t Be Afraid to Chop (3 min read)

A big hey to you all!

So after 2 years of trying to grow my hair long and avoiding hair dressers at all costs, I decided to cut it for various reasons. First of all, my hair is very thin and so when it got longer, it made me look like I had no texture in it. Secondly, split ends became a nightmare and never mind the fact that I still had different hair lengths due to previous poor hair choices.

I took the opportunity to go to a 4.5 stars hairdresser in Gdansk while I was there in April. Getting in touch to them was super easy, I just went on their Facebook page and they responded within a few hours. I was aware that it would not be cheap – almost 400 zl – but I wanted an expert to fix the mess on my head. Carry on reading if you want to see my big change.


This is what my hair looked like before – tired, dull and damaged. But hey, at least it was kind of long!


The big push in my decision to chop my hair was the new trend influence. I felt more confident to go for it, if it went wrong then I would blend in anyway.

My salon was called Jacques Andre Hair & Spa. I walked in there not knowing what to expect as a result, but at the end I was so pleased I did it. They only used L’Oreal Paris products and were trained by them too, truly impressive! Another thing I noticed was that there were a lot of international clients – German, English, Spanish .. you name it! Should this suggest that they have a good reputation worldwide? Oh, below are some pictures of the salon, I thought that the décor was very classy and inviting.

Let’s get to my transformation:

Now my hair is healthy, texturized, glossy and soft in touch! What makes me even more happy is that it finally looks okay in photos and I look much more mature.


To sum everything up – I 100% love my new hair! I made a right choice by going to that salon as I can’t imagine any hairdresser I know of locally could do the same job. Plus, they gave me a mascara as a gift for coming to them – how sweet. So, if you are considering cutting your hair shorter but are too afraid I have one piece of advice for you – JUST GO FOR IT! It will grow back anyway, besides maybe you feel so much better with shorter hair just like I turned out to. Don’t be afraid to take risks on new styles, life’s too short to be boring!


To get in touch with this salon, click here. Alternatively, their Facebook is here too.

So have any of you made the big decision to chop your hair? Or maybe you have some tips on how to keep it healthy? I would love to hear from you!
