Destination Style

Desination style
Hey fellow shy children!
This post is going to be kind of different topic wise, than i usually cover. But i have been challenged! The lovely people over at Lover.ly has challenged me to style an ultra chic wedding dress and since i never refuse a challenge, i had to accept it.
I do have to state that i have never been married or engaged and i bow down to everyone who has went through the process of picking the perfect dress. So lets get started!
 
 
This Destination wedding takes place on the beautiful island of Bora Bora. I decided to go with Davids Bridal allover beaded lace gown with an empire waist. Manly because i wanted a dress with no sleeves or straps but still gave me a figure friendly shape. The all over beading was a plus because it gives the dress character and also helps with minimizing jewelry. I can also picture the bead work glistening when the sun hits it. (or maybe i have been watching to much Disney)
I do have to say that the destination i picked really did influenced my dress picking because of the wedding being on an island. But this dress can be really functional in other settings as well. So basically its just a really great style, all around. 
With this dress i did pair it with three other key parts. So the shoes are Menbur Bow Pumps that i could have went a little more simple with but my intake on it is after the exchange of vows, your going to need a nice pears of shoes when your dancing and socializing with family and friends. So that's killing two birds with one stone... winning! 
The next piece is the head piece and i deiced to go with a huge flower, instead of a Vail or crown. To me the flower works great with the setting and the elegance of the white dress. 
The last but not least part to this outfit is the accessory. I had to go with a bright statement necklace and the solarium bib necklace was perfect! Its earth toned and it fits the tone of a island setting.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and thank you Lover.ly for the challenge.

New Desk With Inspiration

newdesk
{from my Instagram
 
Last Friday we decided to go to a few thrift stores, basically to get out the house and look around. I had no intentions of finding a desk at the thrift stores or even paying for one. But i ended up lucky this day! The very last thrift store we visited had a desk, setting outside with other furniture. When i went to go look at it, there was no price tag and it was the only piece of furniture that didn't have a tag on it. So when i asked the lady at the register what the price was, she had to find out too. I was even told that all furniture would be marked 50% off if i decided to buy. So basically i found a desk that was basically a still for $10.
So now that you know about my new desk, your probably wondering how i am going to decorate/organize it to suit my blogging need. Well i have you covered! Looking at the picture you can see that i kind of have a lot of the basics, since i have been blogging for almost 3 years now. But every blogger needs more and here are some of the things i would like to have for my new work space.

desk list
  1. Raspberry Many Thanks Note Cards
  2. Silk Sunflower Bush in Yellow Gold
  3. Wall Pops White Organization Set
  4. Mirrored Jewelry Tray
  5. Round Wire Mesh Wastebasket 
  6. Skullcandy knockout Headphones
  7. Bella Sugar Rush Candle
  8. Marilyn Monroe Color Lips Painting
  9. Pilot G-2 Retractable Gel-Ink Pens
I hope this desk wish list helped you out. But i know first hand seeing ideas in perspective is even better. That is where Pinterest comes into the picture. Anytime i need inspiration or a new idea on using something old Pinterest is my go to spot. If you check out my pen board you will see that i have quite a few different categories to choose from. But for this particular post you are going to need my Office ideas section. (I will have it down below) So make sure you follow me and leave me a message, so i can check out your office or desk pin board :)

Saturday i spent organizing both rooms and getting everything in my head jotted down and Sunday I took these lovely pictures with my tripod. (no help because i was suppose to go fishing with the family)

#InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask Review


Untitled
 
I basically never talk about my hair on FashionShyChild, do to the fact of my hair being so dry and damaged. I have been straightening my hair for years now and if you know anything about ethnic hair, adding heat is one of the worst things you can do to it. 
So the neglect of over straitening my hair and lack of moister my hair was getting, basically left me with dull and lifeless hair. I tried everything i could to fix it, like no processing, using sulfate free shampoo and conditioner and even making crazy recipes i found online. Nothing seemed to last or give it its natural beauty back.
A few months ago i was given the opportunity to test out a hair mask. I only used one other hair mask before in my teen years and never used one again. So i decide to give it a try and i am so happy i did.
 
So this is were my review begins!
 I will be covering these Points: Packaging, Product Review (with Pros & Cons) and My Final Thoughts. So lets get started. :) 

Packaging: Is an 8fl or 240ml tub with its name, ingredients, about and directions placed on it. So everything i need to know about the product is placed right on the tub.

Product Review: When you open this tub you will notice the strong smell right of the bat. It doesn't smell bad by any means, its just really strong and fruity. 
The product it self is a cream color and the consistency of mayo. I like that because i found myself using less at a time. 
I would use this product once a week, and that worked for me since i only wash my hair then. The only thing is you have to have clean hair before using this. So i suggest getting in the shower, shampoo and condition your hair, ring out the water really good and than apply this mask. The Argan oil mask has to stay in your hair for 5-15 min, So i would shower and shave within the wait. I also really enjoyed when this product was setting in my hair, it felt like my hair was getting the moister it has been lacking and my scalp was feeling relaxed too. 
This product does contain 5 main ingredients which includes Argan oil, Amino Acid Complex, coconut oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin B5. That being said the packaging says you can use this as your everyday condition, which i personal wouldn't recommend. 
Once the Argan oil is ready to come out you will notice your hair is way more stronger than it was before. I even noticed that my scalp looks more healthy too.
 I'm down to one more use of this product so in all i used it about 6 times with one more time left. So this product should last you about a month and a half if used once a week.

Pros- hydrates your hair, hair looks healthy and shiny, smells good, great size, not oily or greasy
Cons- Smell is to strong

My Final Thoughts: Now using this Argan oil hair mask for over a month and seeing my hair look better, I'm going to have to get another tub. Its even convenient to use, since you don't have to put a shower cap over it to activate. But for the look of shiny, healthy hair fast, this product cant be beat.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
