Envy Hair Studio

I haven’t posted a lot recently because I’ve gotten a new job. I left my crappy , starting-out hair job for a much more prestigious salon owned by a good friend and co-worker of mine. I really enjoy it and most of all my clients have followed!!

Photos with John Ryan

img_68131A few months ago, well in the fall, I had the pleasure of getting some photos with my good buddy John Ryan. These had a very Kate Moss circa 1990’s to me. It was a nice warm day, after the shoot there was a good rain, but it was still warm enough for a mini skirt and short sleeves.

I own that beautiful vintage fur now btw!

We took a ton. There’s a lot more.

Review: Soy Wax Melts

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

I always have the wax burner (from Yankee Candle) hot and ready because my boyfriend’s dogs can be rather stinky. I keep it in the den so that guests (and us!) are smacked with a hint of aroma upon entry. I LOVE anything that smells good cause it instantly makes me feel soothed or relaxed. The Yankee Candle brand of wax doesn’t seem to smell up the house as much as the ones from Walmart! I was surprised that the ones from Walmart drift all the way up into the upstairs bedroom!! BUT, this post is about the wax I got off the interweb…

These wax melts¬† are from Etsy made by Chris Ian Candles. I will say that they smell absolutely wonderful! They DON’T drift all the way upstairs like the Walmart wax, but that is probably because these are made out of soy and not all the synthetic properties that fill up the Walmart ones. I like these 100% soy meltees because they come in really unique scents like pink sugar/cotton candy and coffee!! And it is also nice that they are better to breathe in than the wax that includes so many chemicals.

With all the brands I have tried, I have come to the realization that the wax seems to last forever. I guess that the smell fades away with each use, but I’ve been using some of the wax for over a year now and it still has held a scent. Maybe it depends on what kind of burner you have, like, how hot it gets. IDK!

I like how clients know that pink is my color! On my birthday one of my clients got me a set of pink clippers that have pink guards, and that is what I use at work now for men hair cuts! One of my loyal clients at my old job got me this nice coffee cup right before I left. I didn’t even know they made pink ones, but I had been eyeing the silver ones for a while. It’s great for coffee and keeps your drink at the right temperature for you. The only downside is that you can’t wash it in the dish washer.

Hair of the Day: Cornrow Pigtails

My old co-worker/friend Keiko did this awesome job on my hair the other month. I was going out for my aunt’s birthday and wanted a new style.

058

It reminds me of Caroline Burt or Kim K. They sport hair like this every once in a while.

064

I hardly ever do anything different to my hair but I must say I really like braids! It was fun to sport these to the Japanese steak house.

Blue liner by Marc Jacobs, Lolitta lipstick by Kat Von D. And dang, my eyes were really watering lol. Just ignore that!!

Outfit of the Day: Pastel Skater Dress

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

I’m not sure what you call this kind of dress, but to me it looks like an ice skating outfit. I ordered it online from Amazon and was happy that it fits perfectly. It has the option of wearing it without the spaghetti straps as well. I wore this out to eat on Valentine’s day this year! The waitress said I look like a little doll because of my look. Lol.

053

It’s a polyester blend and I had to iron it cause it has the tendency to wrinkle up. The pleats on the skirt remind me of Marilyn Monroe (I’m not even a big fan of her) or a cheer leader. It is a very feminine dress and it is my favorite. However, I don’t think it would look as dainty on somebody who’s a bit busty! It stayed in place though, didn’t flash anyone, but I had to be very careful the skirt didn’t blow up and out cause it is super short. The color IRL, is more mint green, it looks almost aqua on here.

 

I think I had on the Jeffree Star lip color Doll Parts.

It’s a fuzzy pic, but I liked it the best!!

Review: Rose Salve

This stuff works miracles. My hands are always in water at work, cold water, and I deal with a lot of chemicals and hair products which irritate the hell out of my hands. I still like using thick hand creams and lotions, but they don’t heal the same ways salves do. This salve is the consistency of vaseline, it smells just like roses, and you can put it on any dry areas. It can be used as lip balm, rubbed into elbows, or cuticles. It can pretty much be used all over! It takes the redness out of my dry, itchy, red, cracked skin instantly. I put this on upwards of five times a day. C.O. Bigelow is a brand you can find at Bath & Body Works.

The truth about Tieks by Gavrieli

, , , , , , , ,

A while back I posted Tieks flats as my shoe of the day. You can type that in the search bar and see that if you wanna check it out before you read this! (Also, this is a different pair of Tieks. I will explain that further down. Keep reading.)

030.JPG

I have worn these a while now. In the last post, I put a photo of the red shiny ones. I ended up trading with my mom because we had the wrong sizes! We were unsure which size would fit us how we would like, so we ordered a US 7 and a US 8 just to see what would happen. One night we were sitting around complaining that they hurt our feet, I said something about how her cobalt blue Tieks didn’t hurt my foot at all when I tried them on once and I liked the color better too. Then we got the ingenious idea to swap them out. Immediately we were prancing around the living room and laughing about how comfortable the switch was for the both of us! We couldn’t stop laughing, because it was pretty funny we both felt the same way.

The reason I was unsure which size would be right is because my feet are skinny/long and a half size, and my mom was just as clueless since she has wider/shorter feet and is also a half size. So I am very happy we got lucky and happened to be able to trade out so nonchalantly. The website for Tieks says to order a size down, and that turned out being true for me, however my mom has a more unusual foot I guess, because she fit into the next size up!

****** I will warn everyone: THESE SHOES AREN’T COMFY AT FIRST! After about twenty wears, these are comfy, your arch feels gently supported, but I still can’t wear them for more than 4 or 5 hours before they feel uncomfortable.. Within the first twenty wears, your toes will probably get sore, and your arches will feel the same and you will be really grumpy because most bloggers lie about how these shoes feel.

They aren’t as feel-good or maybe not even as pretty as I expected, but there’s some positives. Like… You can’t feel the ground through them like you can with other flats. The colors are super bright and chic. They look like my ballet shoes from my dancing days. So they are really girly, and I like how flexible they are. You can walk on your tiptoes or flex your foot up, and that is something I haven’t found in any other flat.

Who knows, maybe after I break the leather in even more I will be happier with them. It’s been a few months though and so maybe they just aren’t super compatible for hair stylists or just my feet in general!

Jewelry of the Day: Tiffany & Co. Necklace

, , , , , ,

This is one of the nicest necklaces that I have. If you have ever seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s then I am sure you can appreciate a piece from Tiffany & Co. If you haven’t seen that film, you need to go check it out ASAP. It is a great classic and any woman into drama and fashion NEED to be exposed to such a movie. It stars the elegant Audrey Hepburn, the best actress of her time. She is such a style symbol and a great idol for little girls, unlike Mrs. Monroe. Anywho, more on the necklace..

017

The design is that of a lock, at least I think that’s what it is supposed to be. It has a phrase indented that says, “Please return to Tiffany & Co. New York”¬† It is also 925 sterling silver.

Above is the nice soft pouch it came in.

So shiny!!
