Summer hair style//Braids

Hair braiding is an ancient art, practiced by the Ancient Egyptians as long ago as 4000 BC. Today it has become a hot  fashion trend with so many styles. We have  fishtail braid, french braid, dutch braid, rope braid, swiss braid...etc.

Braid is a structure of hair that is made by weaving three or more strands of hair together.

When you decide to braid your hair,  make sure your hair is in good condition, or you will experience breakage and damage. Your hair should have elasticity. This is a natural condition of hair fibers and will be present in all hair that has not been chemically treated. 


Hair braiding is one of the most versatile ways to style your hair.

This is my favourite hair style for summer. Summer is all about staying cool. A great way to do that is to braid our hair. And braids are also my go to hair style for rainy days.

Here are some of my favourite braids that you can try this summer:

My favourite is braided top knot. Super easy and quick to do :) Gather your hair into a ponytail on top of your head. The higher, the better. Make a loose braid all the way down the tail. Pin the braid in place with bobby pins and that is it. 
 What are your favorite braided hairstyles?

Good luck ;)

Trendy heels for less/Miu Miu vs Steve Madden

When I first saw these Miu Miu shoes about six months ago I absolutely fell in love :) You can find them HERE. Unfortunately we can’t all afford Miu Miu.

I was searching for a cheaper version of these shoes. So then I came across at "Beasst" by Steve Madden. They are about 90$. You can check them out HERE and HERE.

I am unable too get them in my country. And the shipping would be quite expensive. So I've been shopping around for new shoes for a while. 
And  I bought these from ebay month ago, and I am extremely happy.

Don't they look the same? :)

Clearly quality differences are present, but I love them.
What do you guys think?
