I haven’t spoken about a red carpet on this blog since a long while. I did so because so many blogs around me started doing, I didn’t see the point of continuing. Seeing the same kind of articles everywhere usually annoys me.
But when I saw some of the picture from the lat VMA’s (that took place this past sunday), I couldn’t help it… I had to share some of them with you. And since I don’t like sharing the negative parts of things, I’m also sharing my favourites!
Jennifer Lopez in Charbel Zoe
We know Jlo love some bling, but this is a little bit too much for me… And can we talk about the very vulgar duckface? Doesn’t help, really doesn’t…
Beyonce in Nicolas Jebran Couture
Really nice! Such an impressive design. Love those lace details that almost look like a spider’s web. I would have worn different earrings though, smaller ones.
Wait. ARE YOU SERIOUS? Mouhahahahhahaha. Nothing to add
Victoria Justice in Alice + Olivia top and Lublu Kira Plastinina dress
Cute, original, fun. What else can we ask to a young actress (or singer? I actually have no idea who she is… oops!)
Ariana Grande in Moschino
Don’t really know what to say here. This is so outdated, from head to toe. The dress looks cheap (sorry Moschino), the hair is a true catastrophy (why would you ever wear a high ponytail with really big and ugly highlights, to match this outfit?) Not like another pair of shoes would have really saved the outfit, but in this case, it’s just making it worse (when you couldn’t think it was possible…)
Taylor Swift in Mary Katrantzou
I really like this. We do have to admit the print looks better from far away, but the design is so fun! So different from what we usually see on the red carpets, Taylor has some guts, but she pulls it off perfectly!
Happy Bday? Merry Xmas? Yes, this can’t be anything else than a present for me, if not, the person picking it for the VMA 2014 red carpet has definitely some mental issues.
Solange Knowles in H&M Studio Collection
Bold move to wear H&M on a red carpet. But guess what? IT WORKS! I love a girl wearing a suit on the red carpet.
Katy Perry in Atelier Versace
To be completely honest, when I first saw the picture of Katy from the VMA, I though it was a picture from the 2000′s. Like early 2000! But no. And even though I do enjoy the 90′s a lot, even in the 90′s this would have been a mistake. Because the denim is already a lot to take, but with the sparkles too, I mean, seriously? WHY? And the belt? This is waaayyy too much….
Sarah Hyland in Kaufmanfranco
I have absolutely no idea who she is, but I really like the dress. It’s a little safe, but fits her perfectly. And look at that back!
Kelly Rowland in Kaufmanfranco
How pretty! I don’t think it must be very easy to pull of a red carpet look while being pregnant. But she did, and she loks perfect!
Rita Ora in Donna Karan
I have to say I’m just super surprised by the choice of dress Rita Ora made. Don’t get me wrong, I really like it, but it’s the kind of things we’re used to see her wearing. This very glamourous, but it’s lovely on her! That dress is beautiful!
Kendal Jenner in Adam Livne
Going minimalist for a Kardashian sister, especially on a red carpet is super surprising. But it looks sooo great, and she definitely has the body to pull it off.
Miley Cyrus in Alexandre Vauthier
I love this! It represents her perfectly! It’s rock, but still chic, but not really expected on a red carpet. Because yeah, of course Miley has to stand out from the crowd!
Kim Kardashian in Balmain
This is probably the look that chocked me the most. I’m not a huge fan of Kim K, and I don’t really like her style (even though I have to admit it got a lot better since Kanye got involved…) But here, I find her really amazing! The dress is great and fits her beautifully (and let’s be honest, she doesn’t have the easiest body to work with). But even her face and her hair are perfect and pretty, and glamourous and at the same time fashionable. Good job really!
Here is the outfit I wore, back in Ibiza, to go to the Hippie Market, Las Dalias.
I was in a hippie mood, that’s why I decided to go for a flower headband. I rarely wear that one because it’s very big, not easy to pull off. But in Ibiza, you can pull off everything, especially on the hippie side.
I’m also wearing one of my favorite tops, very simple but so easy to wear. And then my shorts, the same than the one I wore in yesterday’s post, but in another color. I bought them both at Primark in june, and I’ve been wearing them both all summer long. Perfect shape, perfect colors, super comfortable, I couldn’t dream of better shorts. And all that for about 10£ each!

The good news is, I’m on a new schedule as from today! I’m starting a new job for the following months at Lady Dandy (where I’ve worked before from time to time), and now full time! See you there?
Here is an outfit I wore in Ibiza for a shopping afternoon. I think it was my second day on the island, and after having a good sun burn on my first day, I had no choice but avoiding the sun for a while. Shopping it was!
I love walking around in the old town, but also enjoy Zara, Stradivarius, Blanco and such…

My third day in London was mostly about the Primark FW2014 Pressdays, then a shopping session at Primark.
Besides that, I walked around a little around where I slept, which was just next to the Primark event (close to Baker street). I took my breakfast in Soho though.
Morning face, and morning view on Regent’s Park
One of the coolest outfit I spotted in the streets, here in Soho
Spotted in the street: Public bathroom that looked pretty cool

Last minute shopping at Topshop to get this white sequined cropped top
Last stop before jumping in the train: a good old Burger King including onion rings, of course!
Many thanks again to Neckermann for the trip!
Lately I’ve been given the opportunity to try the new range a shampoo from L’Oreal, Fibralogy. The focus of these product is to give volume to your hair, by following a few steps: shampoo – thickness booster (kind of looks like a serum to apply after the shampoo, right before the conditioner but without rinsing it) – conditioner or mask – serum (I usually apply it right before drying my hair).
From left to right: serum – shampoo – conditioner – mask – booster
It’s exactly the kind of products I was looking for. I have a big mass of hair, but they’re so thin that as soon as I blow dry them, they seem flat, it just looks like I have just 3 hair on my head… I mean look
They look good but not very full.
So I made a first try last week with the Fibralogy products, here’s the result
I don’t know if we can see it properly but my hair were super voluminous. And it stayed that way for a while, seeing how they were the following night (excuse the picture kind of out of the blue, but definitely shows how my hair were still looking awesome more than 24h hour later)
I tried the products for the second time, and seems like from weeks to weeks, they get bigger!
Since my very first try, I’ve used the Fibralogy products at least once a week. To accentuate the volume effect I blow dry my hair using curlers. Once everything is dry, I leave the curlers on my head for a good 15 to 20 minutes. It definitely helps for the volume and the shine.
My final thought?
I was honestly impressed. I don’t really go for super commercial/chains products like the shampoos you find in supermarkets. I buy most of my products in the US. But this one, when using all of the steps, is pretty magical! Don’t get me wrong, the final results would never be as good if I didn’t blow dry my hair right after.
Now on another point, I’d like to precise that I already owned the shampoo I had received a while ago to try out, and I was already really pleased with the result. But today, I couldn’t imagine not using every product for every step.
I also know that I won’t be using the Fibralogy products every week because I like using different kinds of shampoos and products for my hair (I have a pretty insane shampoo/conditioner/hair product collection…), but these ones will definitely be in favourite section!
Now a few pictures from the past month after using the Fibralogy products
