4 Ways To Upgrade Your Style

There comes a day when you look in the mirror and don’t really care for the image that’s looking back. This has to do with your style and it’s nothing to worry about. The good news is that it can be fixed and changed for the better.

Your style represents who you are and tells the world what kind of person they’re dealing with. Altering your style is a modification everyone goes through at some point and may even do it multiple times. Focus on where your look has been in the past and where you picture it going. See four ways to upgrade your style.

Declutter your Wardrobe

The only way to alter your style is to see what you already have by decluttering. Tackle your closets and drawers and start a donations, give away and keep pile. Try on your clothes and only hang onto items that you love and wear. This is your chance to let go and stop holding on for the wrong reasons. The more room you make, the more new clothes you’ll be able to fit in your closet.

Move

Your style isn’t only about your clothes. It encompasses your life, attitude and way you carry yourself. Consider a shift in your job or location where you’re living. Search apartments in Pensacola, FL and envision yourself starting over in a beautiful community where the sun’s always shining. A fresh outlook may be all you need to get the rest of you in order. Find a place that makes you happy and excited to get out of bed each day. Decorate your new place according to your updated style and enjoy the joy it brings to your life.   

Get A New Hairdo

Changing your hair style is an excellent way to reinvent yourself. Alter the color or length and feel good in your own skin. You’ll feel better in your clothes and more confident in your appearance overall. Find someone you can trust if you’re making major changes and let them offer advice if you’re unsure about what way you want to go. If you’re changing your clothes around, it only makes sense that you’d want a hairstyle to match. Keeping your hair and nails nicely groomed sets the foundation for the rest of your style.

Wear Prints & Patterns

Break out of your blacks and whites and start buying more prints and patterns. Incorporate them into your shirts, pants, shoes and handbags. It may feel strange at first, but you’ll get used to it once you start trying these types of clothes on and wearing them out in public. Start with a few staple pieces to get yourself more comfortable sporting funky designs. This is also your opportunity to incorporate more color into your wardrobe.

Conclusion

Don’t panic if you get dressed and aren’t happy with what you see. All it means is that it’s time to revamp and refresh, so you’re back to feeling confident and fabulous. These are four ways to upgrade your style.

Smell the roses before bedtime

If you like the scent of rose petals, you will love Vanity Planets Flower Child Moroccan Red Clay Mask. This mask smells amazing and you will smell the scent of roses as you relax during your red clay treatment and beyond.

This mask has other fine qualities: The Moroccan Red Clay  gently cleanses and exfoliates your skin. The texture is like powder and you can’t even feel the exfoliation taking place after applied. Your skin will feel soft, fresh and glowing as the clay reduces your  skin’s natural production of sebum. It’s suitable for all skin types but even better for oily skin. I have normal skin and this mask has not dried out my skin at all. It’s even better for oily skin.

It’s easy to use, simply had 1/2 tbls. of power in the palm of your hand and add water to mix until a smooth paste is formed. A nice feature to this mask is you do not have to wait until the mask drys completely. It isn’t even recommended as it could dry out your skin. Right before the mask begins to dry just rinse it off.  You will love how your skin feels and the rose scent is fabulous.

Vanity Planet Flower Child Moroccan Red Clay Mask is an organic powder and helps to stimulate circulation. It is All-Natural, Preservative-Free, Vegan, Cruelty-Free and made in the USA.

Head over to Vanity Planet  and view their extensive line of skincare, haircare, makeup and other health and wellness items.

NYFW’s Cutest Models!

As all the crazy and madness from fashion week has come to an end, I wanted to make sure you saw this season’s cutest AND smallest models to take the runway. This year Cantu hosted the ever adorable McClure Twins to walk in the 2017 Texture on the Runway show.  Not only were Ava and Alexa incredibly cute but their hair looked amazing, thanks to Cantu’s marvelous Global Artist, Maria Antoinette!

Ava’s style: The Braided Half Up Half Fro (Orange Skirt)

Step 1: Start by detangling hair with Cantu Kid’s Conditioning Detangler, followed by cleansing and conditioning with Cantu Kids Tear Free Nourishing Shampoo and Cantu Nourishing Conditioner

Step 2: With dried hair, section the top section from ear to ear and secure the back portion of hair with an elastic band

Step 3: Part out a middle section for the first braid, braid that back all the way to the ends of the hair in that section

Step 4: On each side of the middle braid, braid 5 braids in a diagonal from the center braid back toward the original part, make sure that each braid is braided to the ends. For the 6th braid closest to the ear, part out a section and braid from behind the ear towards the front. These will hang forward, and get decorated with beads. Repeat on both sides of the middle braid

Step 5: Release the large section of hair in the back. Add the Cantu Kids Curling Cream, followed by the Cantu Styling Custard. Make sure all the hair is evenly coated and start finger coiling the curls. Repeat on all the back section of hair

Step 6: Take the braid tails and combine 2 to 3 braids and twist into a Bantu knot at the base of each cornrows. Bead the two hanging forward braids

Step 7: Once the back hair is dry separate the curls and pick at the root for volume

Alexis’s style: The Braided Frohawk (Green Skirt)

Step 1: Start by detangling hair with Cantu Kid’s Conditioning Detangler, followed by cleansing and conditioning with Cantu Kids Tear Free Nourishing Shampoo and Cantu Nourishing Conditioner

Step 2: Section the hair into three sections from forehead to the nape. Creating a Mohawk in the middle and two sections one on each side. Secure each section with an elastic

Step 3: With each side section, install 10-12 cornrows. Leave the ends of the braid loose to blend into the curly-hawk, that will be in the middle

Step 4: With both sides cornrowed down, Add the Cantu Kids Curling Cream, followed by the Cantu Styling Custard. Make sure all the hair is evenly coated and start large chunky two strained Twist. Twist to the ends and then twist into a Bantu Knot. Repeat on the full middle section including the loose cornrow ends

Step 5: Allow those to set a few hours or overnight. Un- twist and pick at the roots to hide parts and create volume.

Step 6: Add colorful hair clips to jazz up the finished look
