A guilty pleasure …


Today I am going to talk about one celebrity that I like a lot and that lately had been very creative and fashionable with all the things that she wore in her show. I am talking about Jennifer Lopez in American Idol. Yep … this is a “guilty pleasure”, I am not proud to say it, but … I like American Idol! Ha ha … I enjoy the first stage where they choose the participants and then I just can’t stop watching the concerts until the end.

 

Ok, after making this confession, let’s move to fashion and I will show you some of the outfits that she had used in the concerts because they have been awesome, of course it helps a lot her body which is just amazing, in general she knows perfectly what is good for her.

 

Let`s start with the latest, this Hervé Léger (Max Azria designer) Spring collection 2012. As you can see, it is super sexy and please look at her abs! And she already is a mother of two … I love how she looks; my only doubt is if his kind of super sexy dress is right to be a judge in American Idol or if it could be better for a performance? What do you think?

This is my favorite, perfect color, perfect design; love her hair, all I can say as that she looks amazing. It’s a Roland Mouret.

This one is not really one of my favorites, love the color but I am not crazy with the design, but I have to recognize that she looks great. This is a Michael Kors.

This Lanvin is just perfect, very elegant and fun design. This is from the 2012 Resort collection form Lanvin.

Here you can see how a very simple dress makes her look amazing, this is a Blumarine, Spring 2012 collection.

She is wearing a Dolce & Gabbana, Fall 2012 collection, and here I wanted you to compare JLo with the model, I really believe it looks better with more curves, don’t you think? This is not my favorite but she looks great again.

As we can see, JLo knows that the orange is a color that goes perfectly with her skin tone, so here is a Victoria Beckham dress. I love the stripes it looks very modern and elegant due to the pencil skirt.

This black dress is very sexy showing just strategic areas and leaving the rest to the imagination. It’s very elegant and the designer is Catherine Malandrino, Fall 2012 collection.

Not everyone can wear a jumpsuit, but last week she wore this beautiful Gucci.

And I wanted to keep this one for the end, because nobody is perfect and I believe this was not a good option for her. This is a Randi Rahm dress, but it is not doing anything for her body, looks even little childish. But … looking at the other outfits, one mistake is nothing, don’t you think?

See you soon!

Doing exercise with style and care


Today is Friday, finally! Isn’t that great? Now we will have 2 days to relax and enjoy … although I don’t know how much we will be able to enjoy here in Buenos Aires, because they said that we will have a rainy weekend … well, let’s see.

 

I want to tell you that I’ve found a system that is not new, but I haven’t done it before, I’ve read a lot about the great results that it produce, so I’ve decided to try it.
I am talking about “The 30 day method” the author is Tracy Anderson the personal trainer of Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow (among other celebrities). The plan mixes a very strict diet with some not conventional exercises.

I know that it sounds like the typical method that will promise miraculous results, but I believe this is different. If offers you a complete body change, burning your fat and adding shape and muscles where you need it. What do you think? Since I don’t want to have the doubt, I decided to start the plan tomorrow, so I will tell you later if it works or not.

 

And since we are talking about exercise, today I will give you some tips about how to choose your exercise clothes. There is a lot of variety in designs and colors in the market, many t-shirts, jackets, pants, etc. But what really matter is what is closer to your body, and I am talking about your bra and your tights. Both are the key depending on the kind of exercise that you practice.

 

For example, if you are planning to do aerobic exercise (cycling, running, dancing) you should focus on your bra so you don’t get any injure on that area. The objective will be to maintain both girls firm and tight.

 

There are a lot of models depending on the brand, what I suggest you is always to try them on the store so you are sure that the tops is tight enough to support but not hurt you. It has to be comfortable, that is very important.

 

From Nike there are different models with and without shaped cups:

Adidas has this super supported bra that has, as you can see, a design that helps to hang on their place your girls. They have also the regular tops with thin stripes but these are more for yoga or sports where you don’t need too much support.

Talking about pants, again, when you do aerobic sports, especially if you run, it’s vital to have a strong support so your veins survive the effort. Please do not run with shorts, it’s not good for your legs!

 

There are different models, it all depends on what you prefer:

In fact, it’s very important to get the right clothes to do exercise, but what really matter is to choose an activity that you really like, so you can be constant and see the results that you want. If you don’t like it, I am sure you will drop it fast!

 

For me, tomorrow will be day one, so wish me luck and I hope it works!

 

See you soon!

Mirror, mirror …


One of the beauty problems that we all have in some point of our lives is related to the length of the eyelashes. We all (and yes … I am sure you too!) have tried many different methods to make them grow and some of them had worked, some others don’t.
In my case, when I was 15 years of age I was very stressed about my eyelashes because they were very short. So, my mum told me about this old remedy where the almonds oil do the trick! You just have to put the oil every night in your lashes and after a while they will grow, and believe me, the really grew! I did the oil stuff for a year and my eyelashes grew very much and the best, they are still the same length until today.

 

Nevertheless, now there are many other tricks, more modern and I am not sure if they are as healthy as mine, but what I can tell you is that they work. I am saying that, because one of my best friends try one magical product that make her eyelashes grow so much that now she can touch her eyebrows with her eyelashes!! She looks amazing and her eyelashes are not only long but she has more than before.

 

The product that I am talking about is “Latisse” which enhance the grow of the eyelashes making them longer, stronger and darker. The main ingredient of this product is a drug used to treat glaucoma and manage ocular pressure. It has to be applied only once a day in the upper eyelashes.

The product is really efficient, but some of the disadvantages are that it will not have noticeable effects before 4 months and if you stop the treatment your eyelashes will come back to their original size (I am not sure how this works … will they fall out?, hope not!)

Any way, since my mum has glaucoma, I am super freak with this topic so I went to her ophthalmologist to ask about “Latisse” . He told me that the product is good and it works, because the substance that it has that is for glaucoma it really increase the volume and the large of the eyelashes, but he told me that is important to consult an ophthalmologist before trying it, because it’s not for everyone, you should check your family story about glaucoma. I have to tell you that my mum is using the glaucoma medicine due to her condition, and she has more eyelashes than before, but in her case it was not a good effect because she had so many eyelashes that she even have inside her eyes and it was a nightmare!

 

So, I believe it is a great product if you take your precautions before using it, and you have to be aware that is not a permanent remedy. I personally recommend my “home made” remedy, which is efficient and permanent … and of course very very cheap!

 

You decide!

 

Let me know if some of you have tried it, does it work? What do you think about it?

 

See you soon!

Autumn in Argentina


Autumn is starting on the south cone, so we have to start getting ready with all the autumn trends and new fun possibilities that this season bring to the table.

 

The first thing that you should know are the colors of the season, I’ve already mentioned this when Autumn arrived to the north hemisphere,  but it is an interesting application what Argentinean designers have done as we saw in the Fashion Week in Buenos Aires last month.

 

Something that will make your life much more easy, is the big trend of block dressing, which means: pick a color and wear it from head to toe. It is just great, you will not have to suffer about combinations or contrasts, of course you can use the same color in different tones, it is up to you.

 

Talking about design, the trends are maxi dresses and maxi skirts (specially pleated skirts), wide-leg pants, oxford pants (straight leg), and sheer pants and skirts. Do not worry if you are a lover of leggings, they still on but with less power than in other seasons.

 

In general, this season fashion takes and reinvent the 70’s and 60’s style. Something that I like a lot is that the smoking jackets are back, and also the feather jackets (please all fake ok?).

 

Regarding shoes the trend is to wear long bots or ankle boots. I love to use long boots with even longer socks. The bag of the season is the “Doctor bag” style, it is useful, and you can put everything inside!

So, that’s it for now, enjoy the season and make great combinations, although the weather is not really letting us enjoy the Fall, because some days are cold and some others still hot as summer.

 

See you soon!
