How to Make Hair Look Thicker or Fuller

How to Make Hair Look Thicker or Fuller
Hey Beauty Bees,

I know that I am not the only person who suffers from this, but my hair is on the thinner side and tends to look like its stuck to my head. I usually straighten my hair but some days I like to make my hair look more voluminous, even if it is straightened. For years I have been using some of these tips to help make my hair look more full and thick and today I wanted to share them with you.

My Winter Night Routine

Hey Beauty Bees,

New England has finally welcomed "Winter", by this I mean the snow has started to arrive. During Winter time I tend to spend my evenings inside where it is warm. Over the last few weeks I have gotten into a "Winter night routine" that I do after dinner, up until it is time to fall asleep. Each and every night there are many steps and products that I use to get myself from the dinner table to under the covers and today I am going share with you what those are.

Pantone Colors of 2016

Hey Beauty Bees,

With a New Year, comes new trends! "Annually, Pantone declares a particular color 'Color of the Year'. The results are published in Pantone View, which fashion designers, florists, and many other consumer-oriented companies purchase to help guide their designs and planning for future products." This tradition has been going on since 2000 and we have been graced with some amazing shades.

3 Things You Need to Learn About Minimalism

In a world where more asks for more, the minimalist look is a refreshing take on clutter-free style. Minimalist style is modern, it is clean and it exudes an effortless approach to fashion. From Sara Donaldson's blog Harper and Harley to Sabrina Meijer blog afterDRK and so many more, the minimalist take on fashion is being put at the forefront and given a new light on how beautiful this ostensibly simple style is.

Unlike other fashion looks, the minimalist one requires more thought, as the no-fuss choices mean you cannot simply throw things on in an eclectic manner as a boho fashionista would, instead, you have to have pieces in your wardrobe that speak to the minimalist style in themselves.

There are a few things you have to do if you want to become a minimalist style star. Starting out by looking at what you already have in your wardrobe is a good idea and once you have things sorted out, invest in a few good basics - solid colored long sleeved tops and pants. There is more that you can do to rock the minimalist look and the following are three tips to help you transition into a minimalist in an effortless way.

Sticking to black, white and grey is not the only option
The biggest misconception when it comes to minimalist style is that one should only stick to wearing black, white or grey. While it is common to see many minimalists stick to these three colours, it does not mean other colours are out of the question. Rather than choosing the colours others have associated with minimalism, take the time to choose which colours work best for you and invest in pieces that show your preferences off in solid colours.

Stick to one, maximum two, colours in an outfit
When it comes to building your look, minimalist style requires that you stick to one, maximum two colours in an outfit. Go for a stunning black dress, like these dresses from Designer forum, mix a nude skirt with a white crop top or go for a white on white ensemble. You can go for blush from head to toe or you can mix grey and orange to make a colour statement. Whichever colours you decide to wear, make sure that the clothing pieces you choose are in solid colours to exude that minimalist trait.

Aim for the architecture
The best thing about minimalist style is that it allows us to play with the architecture of the clothing. Devoid of bold patterns or florals, and having a solid colour showing every edge, every stitch of the piece of clothing, means you can wear pieces that have more of an architecture to them. Invest in tops that have bold shoulders or an asymmetrical shape; choose skirts with structured pleats and pants that are statement pieces in themselves. Make sure that you dont stop at wearing these pieces only for formal occasions, instead, rock them for day looks as well!

Boston Beauty Buzz 2016 Update!

Hey Beauty Bees,

We are a few days into the New Year and I have been thinking a lot about where I want to go with my blog as well as my life. With all my immigration paperwork finally in order, I will be a lot more busy in my life with searching for a job and starting college.

I had to make the decision if I wanted to continue my blog and how I would go about fitting it into my now busier schedule. It has been almost 2 years of consistent posting and I could not see myself just ending it abruptly because I have had so much fun and made so many relationships through this experience. With that I have decided to continue my blog into the New Year but with a new schedule.

I will be eliminating a day from my regular three weekly posts. Mondays and Fridays will be the two days that I will be able to commit to each week. From time to time I will post three times a week, with the third post being on a random day. This year I really want to work on the quality of my writing and only having two posts a week will help me from rushing pieces and put my best effort into each. 

I am so excited for this year with all the post ideas I have thought of and all the company reviews I have lined up. I also can not wait to shine the light back on some of my older pieces of work that I think a lot of my readers enjoyed for any new audience members!

My readers are a huge support and I love hearing back from you guys on each and every post as well as on social media. You guys give me a lot of inspiration and I would love to get some feedback on post ideas you would like to see this year!

Thank you to everyone who read Boston Beauty Buzz in 2015 and I hope you enjoy continuing to read in 2016!

What I got for Christmas 2015

What I got for Christmas 2015
Hey Beauty Bees,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa spoiled you greatly!! I had an amazing time spending Christmas with my Husband and family. I know this haul has been very postponed with all the traveling I have been doing and dealing with winter storms plus getting sick! The craziness has finally calmed down and I've finally gotten some spare time to snap some pictures of some of the gifts I got this year.

I absolutely love reading blog posts and watching Youtube videos of Christmas Hauls. With that said, I am in no way trying to brag or show off.  This is simply sharing with you the gifts I am so appreciative and grateful to receive from my loved ones.
