A few Weeks ago , during Lolla Weekend to be exact . I was invited  to visit the Bed Head Hotel hosted by Bed Head by Tigi.  Which is a pop-up party where festival goers can get glam, sip on some coktails and enjoy music performances by some amazing guest DJs before heading out to the music festival.

While I was there I learned how to create the perfect messy waves using the Curlipops™ 1" Reverse Tapered Tourmaline Ceramic Styling Iron,  the steps to make some super easy festival hairstyles, and what Bed Head by Tigi products to use to take your festival hairstyle to the next level. Today I'm sharing with you all those tips and two step by step hairstyle tutorials that I'm sure you're going to love because how easy they are.

For both looks I started by curling my hair with the Bed Head by Tigi Curlipops™ 1" Reverse Tapered Tourmaline Ceramic Styling Iron. This curling iron is THE PERFECT tool to create bouncy curls. The tapered barrel can be used to make volume on the top and tight curls at the bottom, or viceversa, tight curls at the top and loose on the bottom. This is definitely the type of curling iron for someone who likes to experiment with different styles.

Then I sprayed Bed Head by Tigi get twisted to protect from frizz and hold my now messy waves for longer.

I need to say that  my waves last longer using this technique than when I curl my hair with my 1 1/4 barrel. If you have thick long hair, I totally recommend you to try this.

1. Grab a section of hair right at the middle of your hair. This is the portion that you're going to braid and use to make your mini top bun

2.  Make a reverse french braid starting from the front of your head to the back. 
*How to make a reverse french braid : start a normal braid; take the right strand and cross it under the middle strand. Next, take the left strand and cross it under the middle strand. Once you have this small foundation braid, begin adding more hair from the sides with each crossover

3. Secure your french braid with small elastics 

4. Make a little top bun with the remaining hair , and secure it with bobby pins.

5. To help everything stay in place, I sprayed Bed Head by Tigi Hard Head over the braid and the bun.

1. Part your hair on the left side . Then take a chunk of hair on the left side, this is what you'll use to make the braid. I wanted my braid to be as thick as possible so I sprayed this section of hair with Bed Head by Tigi Superstar Queen for a day to add some volume and body.

2. Start by doing a reverse french braid  starting at the top of your part. Thenk keep going until yo reach the ears level. At this point you can just continue doing a regular braid.

3. Once you finish the braid, secure it with small elastics.

4. Pull through the sides of the braid to make it more fluffy and thick!

Ulta Beauty is opening a few new locations across the States and I was invited to be part of the Grand Opening of their Northbrook IL store. After taking a few pictures for this post, I ditched the camera and spent the rest of the day exploring the new store , trying new products, and swatching every single lipstick and eyeshadow in the shelves.

Ulta Beauty esta en proceso de abrir algunas nuevas locaciones a lo largo de Estados Unidos y fui invitada a ser parte de la Gran Apertura de la nueva tienda en Northbrook, IL. Yo me la pase super, tome algunas fotos para el blog y el resto del dia me dedique a "swatchear" cada uno de los lipsticks y sombras de ojos que me encontre en la tienda.

Being the top National Retailer in All things beauty , Ulta Beaty Stores are known for carry a lot of differend brands and products , thus the Stores are usually big. However this is by far one of the biggest Ulta Beauty  I've ever been at. This place is humongous !

Big enough to have full displays for some of their more popular brands and even a table full of one of the latest and more coveted eyeshadow palett launches !! I couldn't believe these palettes were sold everywhere but there it was the full collection ,  in FULL STOCK,  ready for me to take them home.

Al ser el proveedor #1 en todas las cosas de belleza, las tiendas Ulta por lo regular son bastante grandes pero en verdad que esta nueva locacion es lo doble de gigante! 

Tanto que se puede permitir tener estantes completos de una sola marca e incluso me encontre una mesa repleta de una de las paletas de sombras nuevas mas buscadas y que actualmente esta agotada en cualquier parte. Si vieran mi sorpresa cuando me la encontre en este Ulta! Porsupuesto que me lleve una de cada una al terminar el dia. Esas oportunidades no se dejan pasar!

Probably my favorite part about the Store was the Ulta Beauty Collection Wall . I knew that Ulta's private label had a wide range of makeup products, a lot of them are staples in my makeup kit,  but I've never seen every single product of their line in the same place. I was amazed, like a kid in a candy store!!

My favorite part about the Ulta Beauty collection is the price point. You know I love a good bargain and I feel their makeup is super affordable but also Ulta Beauty ALWAYS have a promotion for their private label. I took advantange of  the Ulta Beauty Collection Buy One get One 50% off , combined with the always trusted $3.50 off out of your $15 purchase and I got a bunch of new lipsticks. They have every color you can possibly image. From sheer lipglosses, to metallic liquid lipsticks. If you've never try them I totally recommend you to do so so run to your closest store and check them out.

Tal vez mi parte favorita de esta tienda fue el espacio que tienen dedicado a toda la collection de maquillaje de Ulta Beauty. Por si no lo sabian, ellos tienen su marca de maquillaje exclusiva que a mi me encanta porque aparte de ser super economica tienen de TODO.

Yo me aproveche de la promocion de compra uno , lleva uno por 50 % de descuento que ademas combine con el cupon que SIEMPRE esta online de $3.50 de descuento en tu compra de $15 y me lleve un monton de lipsticks. Ahi en la tienda tenian de todos los colores que puedan imaginarse, si no los han probado se los recomiendo muchisimo!

Off shoulder

plaid-off-shoulder-crop-top

Lately I'm obsessed with crop tops, plaid, and anything off the shoulder. This crop top was a steal I found in Charlotte Russe and the perfect mix of all the things I'm loving lately. It is only $6.99 and still available in all sizes. Get your hands on it before it sells out.  I always pair my crop tops with my favorite black or denim jeans. These are super high waisted and petite friendly! What are some of the trends your loving lately?

Honey-honey!

First of all sorry for the pictures overload guys! I'm just in love with this dress, this location and all of the photos.  You may remember I wore a similar dress for my engagement pictures: you can see some of them ON THIS POST and on my instagram.  I fell in love with this mustard lace maxi romper from the very first moment I saw it on poshmark (yes on poshmark!) but It was quickly sold out and I couldn't find it anywhere after, so I ended up getting it in Wine instead ... Fast forward a year after my engagement photoshoot, Saved by the dress mailed me the dress (or well, maxi romper) that I tiressely looked for. As soon as I opened the box the perfect location to shoot this pictures came to my head right away: " the honeycomb" at Lincoln park. We headed out there yesterday and managed to make this photoshoot happen while a family picnic, another fashion phothoshoot and a quinceanera  session were taking place at the same location.  I left there feeling we conquered the chaos!

Buy my lace maxi romper here:

Nordstrom: Available in Teal , Red , and Coral
Saved by the dress: Available in Wine , White, lilac, black and blush
Dillards : Available in Royal Blue
*I looked everywhere but the yellow is sold out AGAIN! I found several listings on poshmark . You can get $5 off when you sign up using the code THECOLORPALETTE

Hoy creo que los voy a aburrir con tantas fotos, pero de verdad que tenia muchas ganas de compartirselas porque me encanto el trabajo que hizo eric, el lugar y sobre todo EL VESTIDO! A lo mejor se acuerdan que utilize uno similar para mi sesion de compromiso, pueden ver algunas en este post y tambien en mi instagram. Cuando estaba buscando el vestido que usaria para ese dia encontre este "maxi romper amarillo" y me enamore, pero no estaba disponible en ese color en ningun lado y tuve que comprarlo en vino. Paso mas de un anio y finalmente lo tengo en mis manos gracias a Saved by the dress! Hace poquito me mandaron ese paquete y fui la mas feliz cuando lo abri y vi que lo que tenia adentro era el vestido que tanto habia buscado. 
Este color ya no esta disponible (otra vez!!) pero les encontre el mismo modelo en otros colores:

Compra mi maxi romper aqui:

Nordstrom: disponible en Teal , Rojo Coral
Saved by the dress: disponible en Vino Blanco, lilaNegro y Rosa
