Pink & White for Spring

Spring is officially here you guys! ♥ I have partnered with Boa Boutique to style some of their new arrivals from their spring collection, which is currently available in store. If you haven’t heard about Boa Boutique, it’s a trendy shop situated in the beaches of Toronto that carries clothing that are North American made. You can check them out here.
I am going to be featuring one look today that I think is absolutely effortless, yet chic. It’s one of my favourite trends for spring that suit just about everyone; the cinched trouser! I couldn’t think of a better trend that evokes something so timeless and versatile.
If you have to invest in anything this spring, a pair of white cinched trousers are great as you can mix and match it with different tops depending on the occasion. I think today’s look is effortless especially if you wanted to brighten up your wardrobe and add a feminine touch. It’s perfect for weekend lunches on a patio or a stroll in the city. Since I am petite I finished off the look by adding a black, skinny belt with gold accents to my waistline to break up the two colours. C’est chic!
What are your thoughts with cinched trousers? How would you style a pair? Let me know below. xoxo

Hair Love: The Chronologiste Line Review

 Kerastase 1
From left to right:
Essential Balm Treatment | Revitalizing Shampoo
Revitalizing Exfoliating Care | Parfum En Huile Chronologiste
You know that feeling when you walk out of the salon with freshly done hair? That’s exactly how I feel at home after using the Kérastase Chronologiste line. Seriously. My hair smells incredible and feels even healthier after the first use. Mind you my hair is in amazing shape to begin with. Everyone and their mother knows how much hair care is important to me. 🙂
I truly believe that if you invest in the right products your hair will reap the benefits and it will show. Plus your hair is your best accessory. So you can imagine my excitement when I got the chance to try out these 4 products.
Here’s what I thought about each product:

Kérastase Chronologiste Revitalizing Exfoliating Care:

What it is: Applied before the cleanser, this exfoliant intensely tones, detoxifies, purifies and cleans the scalp and the hair fiber. This also multiplies the effects of the subsequent treatments, from the shampoo to the final touch.

My first impression was, “What? Do I really need to exfoliate my scalp and hair before shampooing? Isn’t a shampoo enough?” I am the type of girl that likes to keep it simple especially when it comes to a routine; less is more. After applying it to my hair and rinsing it out I loved the results. My scalp and hair felt a lot cleaner and was ready for the next step: shampoo.

Kérastase Chronologiste Revitalizing Bain Shampoo:

What it is: It’s purifying action cleanses scalp impurities as it smoothes the hair fiber. This cleanser combines smoothness and nutrition and it envelops the hair while remaining supple and soft.

This shampoo is amazing. After the exfoliating, I applied a small amount to my damp hair and made sure to massage it throughout. When my hair felt clean I rinsed out the product and could feel a bit of a difference when comparing it to my other shampoo. My hair felt really clean. I also noticed once my hair was styled it didn’t get as oily as it has after a day of not washing it and my hair smelled so good. I would definitely recommend this.

Onto to the next step. 🙂

Kérastase Chronologiste Essential Balm Treatment:

What it is: This Balm intensely nourishes the hair from scalp to ends. Its exceptional formula smoothens and replenishes the hair fiber. The scalp is revitalized. The hair looks and feels sumptuously gorgeous, with an incomparable cosmetic touch.

This has always been my favourite step in the hair care regimen. You get to treat and replenish your hair from sun damage or through the use of harsh hair products. This balm is the best I’ve ever had. You don’t need to use a lot too, which is great. Apply walnut sized amounts over the lengths and ends of the hair and leave it on for 5 to 10 minute. Rinse. Let me tell you this product makes a huge difference with the texture, feel and look. My hair was softer, smoother and shinier.

Once I blow dried my hair, I could see the impact of how all three of these products worked together. It really enhanced what I already had and then some!

Kerastase + Sweet as Fiction

Lastly:

Kérastase Parfum En Huile Chronologiste:

What it is: It adds shine and softness. This luxury perfume envelops the hair in a sensual and subtle fragrance for a long-lasting sensorial experience. Intensely scented and visibly nourished, the hair is radiantly lovely.

I call this the finishing touches to your hair. Once your hair is blow dried and styled, dispense about 1–2 pumps into your hands. Rub them together and distribute the oil through your dry hair. I normally apply this through the mid length to the ends of my hair. I personally loved the scent and it finished my hair off with a shiny, healthy look.

Now I understand why celebs are raving over Kérastase. It’s the real deal, especially the Chronologiste line. For all those asking, these products are suitable for all hair types and their main aim is towards total hair and scalp renewal. It delivers above and beyond to help your hair look and feel it’s absolute best! I am now a huge fan. You definitely have to try this out if you haven’t already.
