Beauty S.O.S: Pastel Hair + Special Discount Offer!

 My "relationship" with my hair stylist started over a year ago (or more, not so sure) and since then I've felt so much joy with my hair, and my frustrating bad hair days are long gone!!!! So I'd love to share him with you -boys and girls- because he is truly a one of kind stylist who understands trends and is not afraid to be daring ;)This season I decided to experiment with the pastel colors and picked pink and green to start, since then I've been planning what other colors I'd like to play with....but in the mean time you can look at the pics I took and take advantage of a very special discount offer he's doing for my readers! Call now and book your appointment with Kiem Voong at the 7Th…

Karina Reske to the rescue!!! Yes, that happens every time my BFF has an event such as a wedding or fashion show to attend, in fact that is the best part of our friendship -the fact that we are so good at different things it only compliments and strengthens our ties :) Don't ask me to do anything related to technology or design of business cards, websites and such - that's with her!!!Anyway, to the point: Kris had a wedding on Saturday and I did her make up and hair and offered tips on styling her amazing DVF green dress, and this is the result...For info on price and schedules available for hair and make up email me at  karinastylediaries@gmail.comBeijos,

New and Upcoming: Alexandre Won

In the fast-paced fashion industry of these days such things like Tailors are not heard of anymore, which is sad because tailoring is an art and a talent that you are either born or not with it. I hate to sound sexist but men are usually the best at this particular task ;)That being said I wanted to share a quick video of Alexandre Won, a tailor who's making headlines in my native Brazil and I'm sure you'll soon hear more and more of the talented guy who rides his motorcycle on his suit (hot if you ask me!!)What a breath of fresh air... http://vimeo.com

Chi-Chi town in Hot Company!

Yesterday I went to Chicago, thanks to my dear friend Eutemia, who had to pick up her passport in the Brazilian Consulate. Of course any excuse is good enough to justify the trip, so there we went...lots of talk and philosophies (haha!), singing and venting we finally arrived and we were ready to shop! Quick resume of our day in the windy city - with lots of sunshine ;)

Brasil….meu Brasil brasileiro….

Listening to axe music, looking through pictures and brainstorming for a post I found myself feeling extremely homesick today, but in a good way. I'm so proud of my heritage and couldn't be happier to see that Macy's has brought a piece of Brazil to it's stores here in America!Such happy colors, places, and people fit in perfectly with the new season. Let's celebrate spring with the joyful spirit of the Brazilians ;)I used to not be a fan of Indy car racing (only liked Formula One because our dear Ayrton Senna) but couldn't help myself but falling in love with this very American race after the Brazilian sweethearts Tony and Helio started to make history on the tracks! Gotta love these guys ;) Viva o Brasil!!!!!Beijos,
