I love the idea of dyed hair. However, I’m hardly a hairstylist and I don’t want to pay all this money to get my hair dyed. Enter hairstylist Benjamin Mohapi‘s “Moody Girls” temporary hair color line. It claims to allow one to achieve their pastel hair color dreams without all the fuss. Featuring five different shades from pink to coral, the collection makes changing your hair color easier than ever. All one has to do is shampoo hair and towel-dry until it stops dripping, then apply the product evenly from root to ends. Rinse everything off after 15 minutes and done. Your coif is completely transformed and should stay that way for three to six washes. Now in my case I’d also have to condition my hair heavily, but I’d be curious to see the effects on curly, kinky locks and also if it is drying. The last time I dyed my hair, well, it looked good at first, but I have been paying the price ever since. Dried, tangly ends that just needed to be cut off. Final word: Curious minds would love to know, do it work for real for real? On all hair types?
adidas – “Easy Blue”
I finally found a Stan Smith that I can stand behind. This suede baby gives me life. I love the color blue, believe it or not, and I always liked the Stan Smith silhouette. What held me back is that everyone had them and I just hate having pieces that everyone else has. Somehow, I doubt you’ll see these blue suede shoes on everywhere and even so, I don’t think I’d care. Final Word: In those famous lyrics by Elvis: “You can do anything that you wanna do. But, oh oh, honey, lay off of my blue suede shoes!”
This Balenciaga bag has been making waves ever since its induction onto the scene. Immediately recognized as an up-cycled Ikea bag, I have to say I’m not shocked. In fact, quite the opposite. To me, Balenciaga did exactly what I think most in fashion have been doing for ages, taking something old or done before and taking it up a notch. I’m not upset, they basically made a .99 cent bag into a quality piece. Hence the price tag. After all, artists copy each other all the time and it’s just about who does it better. Just glad Ikea had a laugh about it, instead of a nasty lawsuit! Final word: I’ll stick with the Ikea bag, if anything now it’s iconic!
