Festering Fall Festival Howloween Clawdeen Wolf? Yes? maybe?
Oh man, I just had a blast with this cause I wanted to do something quick and fun! Why has Mattel not done a Halloween set? I think you should and I think I should design the outfits, just sayin! ;P I totes would not mind doing concept art for clothing… that would be cool. That is something I would totally not mind doing. Nope.
Streetwear staple, Dimepiece LA, presents its F/W16 lookbook, Staying true to the brands quirky undertone, the collection features an eclectic mix of everything from effortlessly cool graphic tees and sweaters to jackets and pieces formed with modern silhouettes in mind.
The painting blinked. There was no way that wasn’t a blink.
Or maybe you just blinked; you wouldn’t know the difference due to the lack of anything in the past thirty minutes Eunwoo had left you in here. Would a bullet to the head really be worse than this?
It wasn’t even doing nothing for thirty minutes that ate away at you, it was the idea of being held hostage; the concept of people believing your security, while you’re infact, locked in a small wooden cabin the size of a shoebox, waiting for someone to rescue you. But how was that going to happen? Your only hope of escape was dropped in the other bedroom across the yard, probably in the hands of one of the Capos, giggling and laughing at your stupid lockscreen and stupid selfies you had taken among the stupid texts you’d sent to friends - the mere thought making your face red hot.
Your eyes avert from the painting for a second, knees bundled up to your chin as you sit on the uncomfortable bed (it was more of a cot - you found out) with the bitterly fragrant thin mattress that probably hadn’t been disinfected since it was stolen from, what Eunwoo would call, a barrier in the plan. Only a causality blocking what he so badly needed at the time.
When it comes to genuine West Coast style, our girl Amber Saylor has it on-lock. From prime vintage finds to the mastered art of tomboy chic, Amber is the epitome of Cali-style. We caught up with the style maven in her Long Beach loft to find out what makes her tick, and how she likes to style her favorite Slip-On’s with some of our Fall ‘14 apparel.
Can we talk about transitioning summer to fall? I HATE dressing for summer, I hate shorts and flip flops. How does one dress for both seasons? Sarah help!!!
Ahh! I actually love summer dressing. It’s so easy for me? I’m just in dresses 99% of the time with a rotation of sandals, ballet flats, ankle boots on cloudier days or gladiators and people think you’re so “put together” when it’s like I am wearing a tube of fabric that took 2 seconds to put on. The amount of effort to put on jeans is so much more exhausting lol. And there are things to match. A dress is one thing. Then shoes. Then done.
For fall transitions, I’d just start wearing summer tops with fall-friendly staples like jeans or black denim and keeping shoe and bag choices light (like brown/tan leather). Start putting tights underneath summer skirts, layering light/loose sweaters over dresses.
Back in October, I hit up my local Target and noticed that SheaMoisture had a new line. Since my other shampoo (SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo) was running low and expired (yes, I know!), I had to get a new shampoo and thought I’d try this one. I also got the masque.
The scent: I would say that there is a fig-scented, brown sugar aroma–which I absolutely love. If you’re a fan of earthy scents, then this is for you. You can also smell the honey, but it isn’t overbearing.
Key ingredients (according to the product labels):
Manuka Honey: contains anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the scalp. Helps create a moisturizing barrier.
Mafura Oil: contains high levels of beneficial oleic acid. Helps replenish oils stripped from hair.
African Rock Fig: contains antioxidant Vitamin C, which helps keep hair looking vibrant.
The Intensive Hydration Shampoo: As always, I diluted the shampoo with apple cider vinegar and water, but made sure I had higher concentrations of the shampoo to actually test the product. Interestingly enough, I was able to do a bit of finger detangling in the shower with this shampoo when I cleansed my hair. This shampoo also left my hair very moisturised–even more so than the Moisture Retention Shampoo, which sometimes left my hair feeling dry if I used to much of it.
The Intensive Hydration Hair Masque: One of the best conditioners I have ever tried hands down. The conditioner has a super thick and creamy consistency. I massaged it between my fingers and there was so much slip, so naturally, I was really excited to see how it would work for my hair. Although I considered using the conditioner straight out of the container, I decided to add EVOO and avocado oil to the mix and a few drops of rosemary essential oil. Then I worked the masque generously into my thick hair. I left it in for an hour and when I hopped in the shower, I noticed just how easy it was to remove the tangles and shedding that I didn’t get during my detangling session the night before. My fingers literally glided through my strands under the stream of water. Also, my kinky, coarse hair literally felt like butter! It was so smooth and soft.
Overall, the shampoo and the hair masque are definitely keepers. I was in HEAVEN as I was washing and conditioning my hair today. If you choose not to get the shampoo, please look into getting the hair masque–it works wonders for kinky hair. I’m so happy with my purchases! With the combination of the three ingredients plus gylcerin, shea butter, and aloe vera juice–these will be my fall and winter staples! :-)
