New (Short!) Hair + Laura Mercier Lip Glacé

New (Short!) Hair + Laura Mercier Lip Glacé
Ten days or so ago I all of the sudden had the urge to chop off quite some of my locks again.. For no apparent reason. So I did what any impulsive Pinterest obsessed girl would do: I quickly had it cut before I could change my mind. It resulted into a short but mostly very pretty curly do for a special work event..  It was pretty much perfect. But then of course there comes a day you need to wash it and style it yourself. I like to call that day Judgement Day, because you never really know if you like a new haircut until you’ve styled it all by yourself. Right?

I’m pretty happy with the results though, although growing out bangs is a real pain. I think it’ll take me another 6 months to grow my bangs long enough to have my hair all at the same length & going slightly longer in front (we’re thinking Gwyneth here). For now clever styling will have to do - beach waves definitely being the best option. For some reason I still have this strange natural ombre thing going on too, which only seems to worsen during the Summer. I used to think it was the remainder of my dyed hair, but now I realise it’s definitely something else causing this. I’ve promised myself to religiously have my ends cut every 6 weeks now, thinking dry ends because of too much time in between cuts might be the culprit.

On my lips in the first picture by the way (the one with the messy unstyled short hair) is a super fun Lip Glacé by Laura Mercier. They launched 13 extra pigmented new shades recently, of which this pretty Daiquiri one is part of. It’s super pretty - definitely the ‘my lips but slightly pinkier and way better’ kind. A bit sticky, but it’s bearable. And very moisturising too! In Belgium you can get Laura Mercier at Senteurs d’Ailleurs in Brussels, a true heaven for any high end beauty addict. The glosses retail for €25,45.

I found a great spray to style those easy peasy beach waves by the way, blogpost to follow pretty soon(ish)!
