Shoulder Length Hairstyles for 2014 / Cortes de cabello al hombro

Shoulder Length Hairstyles for 2014 / Cortes de cabello al hombro

Now this is a haircut that I really love to see in a woman, and even tho' it's been around since like forever, it is having a specially momentum this year. It has the best of both worlds, while it's not drastically short, it not that long either so you can still play with it without having so much volume and hair to carry on your head. The general rule is that the hair has got to be 2 cms below the shoulders.

There are different type of hairstyles according to each face shape out here, yet this "to the shoulder" hairstyle suits pretty much every type of face as it frames it from chin to forehead. I say that you should take a change and it give a try, at the end of the day you know hair grows back again, but trust me, you wont regret it. 

Here are some celebrity pictures featuring this haircut for inspiration.

EN ESPAÑOL:

El cabello hasta los hombros es un corte que combina las ventajas de tener el pelo "corto" y la seguridad que da tenerlo "medio largo". Las celebridades de Hollywood le están apostando a este tipo de corte y se perfila como una tendencia para invierno de este año. Lo puedes llevar rizado, lacio u ondulado, y por regla general, debe ir 2 centímetros abajo de los hombros.

Hay diferentes tipos de peinado o cortes de cabello según el tipo de rostro, sin embargo, llevarlo hasta los hombros representa un factor favorecedor para todo tipo de caras, pues enmarca el rostro de cuello a frente. 

Este es un corte que sigue siendo arriesgado para las chicas que consideran que el cabello largo denota mayor feminidad, pero las que se atreven a darle un chance, lo encuentran tan fabuloso que les es difícil dejar el corte por un tiempo y darle marcha atrás. ¡Anímate! Es tendencia 2014.

Aquí te dejo algunas fotografías de celebridades que de seguro te servirán como inspiración.

Trends: Menswear Fall-Winter 2014-2015 / Tendencias Moda masculina Invierno 2014


Pic: themodman.tumblr . com Graphic: Themodman - Andy Escobar

There are certain trends that I like to pick every season, for fall/winter 2014-2015 I chose five solids trends for men that are gonna stay steady for fall, but you can also wear for all seasons. Being honest, my favorite one has got to be the Ochre Yellow everything, it's not as bright as a true yellow but it's not that opaque either, that's why it suits pretty much all skin tones. Not to mention that it's a vivid color, with so much energy and substance that comes perfect for cloudy gray days. I gotta admit that Ochre is my favorite color, other than true orange, black and burgundy.

Hay ciertas tendencias que me gusta sobresaltar cada temporada, para otoño/invierno 2014-2014 de moda masculina, escogí 5 tendencias que me cautivaron y que se mantendrán fuerte durante la temporada invernal, sin embargo, como siempre lo comento, también son tendencias que puedes usar durante todas las temporadas del año. Para ser honesto, mi tendencia favorita tiene que ser el uso constante del color amarillo Ocre, no es tan brillante como un amarillo canario pero tampoco es opaco, es por ello que le favorece a la mayoría de tonos de piel, cabe mencionar que es un color vivido, con energía y sustancia, es por eso que viene perfecto para iluminar los días grises de invierno. Debo admitir que el amarillo ocre es mi color favorito, aparte del naranja, negro y granate. 

Here are my favorite trends of the season, with photos and trends chosen by me (Estas son mis tendencias favoritas de la temporada).

Blazer for Women / El Blazer femenino

Blazer femenino - Blazer for women

There are a lot of things I like about the blazer as a piece of clothing for both men and women, but the main reason has got to be the the way this jacket gives the body a strong silhouette, as a whole, starting for the shoulders to the chest and torso. You simply can't go wrong using a blazer.

For ages, this piece has been considered a male jacket but today women gave a whole new meaning to it. It talks about empowering and equality between both genders. Business women often use this jacket for work, but there are tons of possibilities with it, since it comes in all shapes and colors.

EN ESPAÑOL:

El blazer es una chaqueta que a tráves de los años se le ha conocido como una prenda masculina, sin embargo, las mujeres le han dado un giro interesante y la han adoptado, también en su guarda ropa. Como el blazer masculino, el femenino está presente en diferentes universos del vestuario, desde el formal casual hasta el jeanswear, solo se requiere una poca de creatividad y experimentar las muchas posibilidades que nos ofrece esta pieza clásica para vestir.

Celebridades, blogueras de moda, ejecutivas, fashionistas, chicas de sociedad, ya tienen esta prenda como un básico de ropero, y a menos que no quieras lograr un look Dandy definitivo, puedes apuntar a personalizar tu blazer con toques femeninos, unos botones expresivos, colores vibrantes, siluetas más ajustadas y pequeñas. ¡Todo está a tu gusto!

It girls, celebrities, bussiness women, are all wearing it. Today it has become a wardrobe basic.

Si, la variedad de colores en blazers es grande. Un privilegio que tienen las mujeres es poder jugar con una inmensidad de tonos y arriesgarse, siempre se ha sabido que los hombres son un poco más discretos a la hora de experimentar con colores, sobre todo, en espacios como la oficina.

They come in all shapes and colors, dare to wear them in every shade. A privilege not all men have.

¿Qué tal lo luce Angelina Jolie o Gwyneth Paltrow? Angelina lo lleva en blanco y lo equilibra con pantalón negro, Gwyneth le apunta a un look negro total en clave Dandy.

Angelina and Gwyneth rock the blazers, both in white and black. How about you?

¿Dónde lo puedes conseguir? En EXPRESS, la foto superior la tomé cuando estuve de visita en la tienda del centro comercial El Tesoro en la ciudad de Medellín. La calidad es maravillosa, y como vez, vienen en clásicos blanco y negro. No dejes pasar la oportunidad de regalarte a ti misma una prenda de esta necesidad. Un básico de ropero.

Where can you get a blazer? Try EXPRESS. The pic above is actually from Express and look how gorgeous their blazers are.

Golden Globe 2014: Red carpet best dressed - Mejor vestidas Globos de oro 2014.

Golden Globe Awards 2014 Red Carpet

The People's Choice Awards come first, Golden Globes come second and then we have the Academy Awards. It's Red-Carpet season and I'm thrilled to see what celebrities dare to wear, we get the boring, the safe, the disasters, and the risky, naturally, I love innovate takes when it comes to fashion, specially in such mainstream event like the red-carpet. So I'll say: Give me the risky.

Here are my favorite TOP 5 best dressed celebrities at the Golden Globe Awards 2014. The key words for this years red carpet are: red, lace black and red. Yes, red once again.

EN ESPAÑOL:

Lo arriesgado, lo aburrido, y lo seguro, vestidos de noche que revelan el gusto por vestir de las celebridades más famosas del cine y la televisión. Estas fueron las mejor vestidas de los premios Globo de Oro que tomaron lugar el día de ayer en Los Angeles. Claves para retomar: Rojo y encaje negro.


- Emma Watson in Christian Dior Couture -

Golden Globe Awards 2014 Red Carpet

She's one of those celebrities who really knows how to dress for her age, and most of all, knows how to experiment with fashion and always has open arms to new things, whether they are a shocker or simply tasteless, she's young and lives to it. At the Golden Globe Awards 2014 she did it again with an impressive Christian Dior Couture dress that revealed an interesting back: skin, dress and formal cropped trousers.  An hybrid of two worlds in one single gown. Fashion, like art, are there to surprise and tell stories, and Emma did and amazing job expressing herself.


- Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren -

Golden Globe Awards 2014 Red Carpet

She has the style, she has the attitude and she has the body so Lupita had it all to wear such a demanding dress as that Ralph Laurent Spring 2014 one in hot fire red with an attached cape. It not only made her skin look impressively beautiful but just simply one of the best dressed of the night. The buzzcut hairstyle and the cute little earnings gave her that effortless look that every celebrity looks for in a red carpet. If you ask me, it feels like that dress was meant for her, better yet, was made for her. ¡And that cape was so dramatic!


- Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé Couture -

Golden Globe Awards 2014 Red Carpet

We already know Cate is an act of class and she's constantly called as a real "Hollywood star", and well, she's really giving justice to that title by looking like a million dollar baby everywhere she goes, the Golden Globe Awards 2014 was not the exception. She was wearing a dramatic black lace sheer-effect Armani Privé Fall 2013 Couture dress and it fitted so perfectly on her that it gives the impression that not other woman could ever pulled that dress off like that. She looks so delicate and sophisticated that it's almost emotional. ¡The neck and sleeve areas of the dress are my favorites!


- Amy Adams in Valentino -

Golden Globe Awards 2014 Red Carpet

Nothing more expressive than wine dark red pared with bloody red, and Amy Adams wore exactly that with an exclusive and very expensive Valentino dress. And we all know no one makes red gowns as perfect as Valentino. What I really love about this look is that incredible cleavage the dress allows (for small breasted women of course), and she gave it her little personal touch with a delicate necklace that went all the way to her chest. ¡Loving her discrete accessories, she knew the dress itself was more than enough! 


- Helen Mirren in Jenny Packham -

Golden Globe Awards 2014 Red Carpet

Helen Mirren is a perfect example of how gorgeous you can look in a formal event even if you're a senior citizen. The color, a very vibrant green, was perfect and made her look bright, happy and alive, which destroys the myth that older women can't wear bright colors. Also, look at the long sleeves, very appropriate. And last but not least, her incredible haircut. Take notes. The dress is by Jenny Packham.

People's Choice Awards 2014 | Best Dressed - Red Carpet

People's Choice Awards Best Dressed
Pics: Getty Images Graphic: Andy Escobar.


It's finally award season and I'm so excited about it. If there is something I truly enjoy is to actually see the celebrities walk the red carpet, showing gowns with the hottest trends that eventually will hit retail and fast fashion stores. It's also an opportunity to dream and think about fantasy, like if those dressed were part of a fairy tale.

Por fin llegó la temporada de premiaciones, y para serte honesto, es una de los momentos del año que más anticipo. La fantasía y la magia de los vestidos de noche sobre la alfombra roja me emocionan, ¿quién es la mejor y peor vestida? ¿Cuál es el color protagonista? ¿Qué tal sus zapatos? Sus looks comunican moda que eventualmente se verá en las tiendas.

Here are my best dressed for the people's choice awards 2014 (Esta es mi lista de las mejor vestidas)

People's Choice Awards Best Dressed

Jennifer Hudson: She looks absolutely stunning with this white dress, matching sandals with see-thro' and white stripes. Also take a look at her black Chanel nails and bracelet. The pop of color is in her bright lipstick. Loving how she looks with short hair, it makes her look skinner and taller. Dress is by: Kaufmanfranco.

Sandra Bullock: This is one of those celebrities who doesn't age, not only because of her flawless face but the way she dresses. She loves dark blue EVERYTHING and she successfully match it with two shades of green and white. Look at those shoes. Pointy shoes are so back. The dress is by: Peter Pilotto.

Allison Williams: There's something about this dress that I absolutely adore, maybe it's the Klein blue or the symmetric white details, it's young, summer-ish, and fun. Perfect for her age. The dress is by: David Koma.

If there's something that I love and adore is to have the chance and the opportunity to taste new products every month. With the courtesy of FancyBox and other stuff I buy thro' the month I try to select the best ones and feature them in a monthly favorites post, and here are my picks for December (last month).

Like I once said, I always try to taste them at least for 30 days so I know for sure they are good and I can suggest them all to you guys.

Me encanta probar productos cada mes con la cortesía de FancyBox y un par de cosas para probar. En esta ocasión les traigo este post con mis productos de belleza recomendados (los que pude probar durante diciembre).

Siempre me gusta probar los productos por lo menos 30 días para poder recomendarlos con sinceridad y certeza. Aquí van.

Got this for my mom because she kinda love nude eye shadows, she's in love with this palette because the colors are very pigmented and creamy, this is by Jolie de Vogue. (The good news is that this palette has vitamins and nutrients for your skin such as Hialuronic acid).

Le compré a mi mamá esta paleta hace unas semanas y está encantada con los resultados. No solo porque los colores son muy pigmentados y cremosos sino porque tiene en su composición química ácido Hialurónico que sirve para la conservación de la piel.

The Fancybox for november was actually great. There are two things I highly suggest buying: the Body Butter and the Furlesse Stickers for the skin. They are wonderful in each category and they last forever. You can find these products at FEDCO.

La FancyBox de noviembre fue genial. Hay dos productos que recomiendo muy especialmente: El Body Butter (mantequilla para el cuerpo) y las Furlesse stickers (cintas para el rostro). Duran bastante y tienen resultados asombrosos. Pueden conseguir estos productos en FEDCO.

I love this hair cream because of its powerful texture and delicious fragrance. I recommend this product for both men and woman, specially if you have voluminous big hair like me.

Este lo compré para mi pues ninguna crema para peinar masculina logra hidratar mi cabello al completo ni logra moldearlo al nivel necesario para controlar el volumen. Encontré esta crema para peinar firmada por Sedal de Unilever y la recomiendo al 100%, no solo por su textura cremosa sino por su olor tan especial, dura durante todo el día y puede hacerse pasar por un perfume. ¡Es así de poderoso!
