New York : A guide to your first visit

If there’s one city in the world that I miss regularly is New York.

The city is filled with an energy that I always find difficult to explain, but which personally gives me wings.

My few visits over the years have allowed me to gather a list of some addresses, good plans and essentials, which you must absolutely do on your first visit. So here they are:

Beauty Test : Kardashian Beauty Hair

My hair obssesion.

You don’t have to be Kardashian fan to be curious and try out their products. I was clicking through a beauty website about a year ago when I came across the « dry conditioner » from Kardashian Beauty Hair. Since my hair texture is dry on the end but tends to be greasy at the roots, I thought a dry conditioner would be a good alternative.

I can’t live without it since.

So when I saw there were sales for the whole hair line, I thought I should give it a try since I loved my dry conditioner so much.

I chose : Rejuvenating Shampoo, Rejuvenating Conditioner, liquid hydration mask, Elixir Intense Repair Treatment and Dry Cumin Oil.

What you have to know before I give my final opinion : The main ingredient is Black Seed Oil and the products are paraben free. I used to do a deep conditioner L’Oréal mask every time I washed my hair  because I have very dry ends and I had to wash my hair every day because it would be greasy at the end of the day.

What Now ?

My hair has radically changed since I’ve been using the products. It’s smoother, lighter & brighter. I don’t need to wash it every day anymore, I guess the paraben in my usual products made my roots greasy, maybe it’s a technique so I use more product and buy more ? I don’t know but I used to fear « the next day » and now it’s gone.

My ends are much less dry, they’re soft, and not only after the shampoo but also the day after. I can only wash my hair 2/3 times a week now opposed to 5/6 even 7 sometimes !

What was my hair routine before :

I would use L’Oréal Color Vive Shampoo, L’Oréal total repair 5 mask and before blow drying I’d put some L’Oréal Huile Miraculeuse on my ends. My hair was looking ok but, as I said, at the end of just one day it would be very dry at the end and greasy at the roots.

What is my hair routine now :

Kardashian Hair Beauty Shampoo & Conditioner, once a week I use the Hydration Mask instead of the conditioner. Before blow drying I put some elixir intense repair, just a few drop. And after blow dry, if needed some dry oil.

At first, and especially with the elixir, I thought my hair would get even more greasy than before, but not at all, the dry oil makes it just soft enough to last at least 2 full days.

On the next I will still use some dry conditioner to keep it smooth.

Big plus : it smells incredible, and they all smell the same.

The downside is that these products are not cheap, but you honestly don’t need much to correctly wash your hair. I don’t know about other countries but in France we have regular sales on this products on a website called « Ventes-Privées » so this is how I will stock up from now on.

If you have any question about the products or if you decided to try them let me know in the comment section !

Why you should do yoga

Yoga.

A mystery for some, a physical activity for others, a lifestyle for a few. In brief, it’s up to you. That’s what I love with yoga: you can approach it the way you like it. In any case, that’s a time to take for yourself, a time to breathe (but not exclusively!), a time to empty your mind (without necessarily achieving the nirvana 😉 ) and a time to enjoy, simply.

Lipstick favorites : The Liquid Mattes

Raise your hand if you are a lipstick addict !

« Your lipstick still hasn’t move » is a sentence I hear a lot after a day, lunch or dinner with my friends: my secret ? Liquid Matte Lipsticks of course!

I haven’t done a beauty article in a while, because I’ve been focusing on trying to make decent videos lately. But since it’s not that easy and I didn’t want to leave this place empty, here I go!

Trip to Arcachon ?

Let me take you away

With my boyfriend’s 30th birthday a week before my 29th, I honestly didn’t even realize I was entering my last twenty-something year. Probably for the best. But the good part is that we planned weeks ago to go see my dad in Arcachon and we jumped on the occasion to invite our friends and my bf’s family.
