IN FULL BLOOM

Not usually a fan of floral prints, I cannot say I loved this dress right away but I decided to give it a chance. Most of the time, I find floral prints a bit too busy or loud, yet there is absolutely nothing overpowering about this understated floral print. Quite on the contrary, the overall effect I think, is rather soft and elegant.

Initially, I envisioned it with a pair of heels & a leather jacket to make the dress less of attention. But I guess I loved this dress more than I thought since i gave it the full credit just pairing it with a black bag & a pair of black shoes.
Sometimes not always planning an outfit goes as we think is gonna go! I make myself crazy from time to time, planning outfits since the day before and changing them last minute before living the house!
Does that happen to you guys too?

The weather is Oslo has been extremely hard to keep on; some days it snows, some others is 23 degrees. Which is making most of us quite annoyed since we don't know what to wear.

This day it started to get colder and rainy, but luckily the sun came through the clouds, and this leather jacket was a great way to keep me warm thanks to the thickness of it. The leather is incredibly soft and because of that it feels super comfortable. And well I'm one of those girls who appreciate comfort, this was just ideal to me. Since the jacket stands out more, I decided to keep the rest of the look pretty simple wearing a silky black skirt, a black & white wrap tie front top, and a pair of orange heels to put some color into the outfit.

1. Get Your Curls To Stay: Cool Them Down
One of the most effective tricks on how to get your curls to stay is to let the curl cool down and set before letting it go. Take each fresh curl (still keeping the curl shape) and secure it with a clip or a bobby pin. How does this work? Well, as you wrap your hair around the curling iron, heat is transferred onto the hair strands, which is what makes them change their shape. So once your pinned curl is cooled down, it will allow the cuticle to close and set in place, making the curl last for a much longer period of time. Take your curls out, and carefully brush them to get that soft feeling on your curls.

2. Use the right hair products
Help your curls! Apply styling products to your hair, which will help hold the curls in longer. Depending what works with your hair, apply a tiny bit of mousse prior to drying your hair, or a lasting cream; I have been loving the Hollyhood Waves TecniArt to be able to make my waves last longer than just a few hours.. All this is after applying heat protectant, of course - always remember the heat protectant first!

3. Invest in good hot hair tools

For years, you may think that your hair is 'stick straight' and that 'your curls will fall apart in 20 minutes anyway'. You will think that as long as you use cheap, drugstore brand curlers. Only when you switch to better quality, higher-end tools, will you realize that the problem isn't in your hair - it's in the iron! Yes, they may be more expensive, however, they damage your hair less, they heat up better (so you will apply heat for a shorter period of time), and good quality irons will last you a very long time.

4. Your hair still doesn't curl?
Well, my beautiful friend, this is a sign that your hair is screaming SOS. Overly damaged hair (including split ends) doesn't curl well. Period. It's time to give your hair some love and get a trim!

Good Luck With your Wavy Curls ❤

- WHAT's POPPIN?-

Hi. Hello Cornflakes!! What's poppin?
It's your girl Camilz AKA Gambitsky. For those who don't know me... I'm a coffee lover at daytime & a sneaker collector at night.
My sneaker collection is very wide and it contains different kind of brands, colors and designs. I mostly try to have a balance on my style where styling a dress with a pair of comfortable & interesting sneakers is just fine.

Nike has created the Nike Vapormax this year. It's really amazing that Nike is not only focusing on comfort but also new styles and designs on their sneakers!
I absolutely love the way these Vapormax look, specially the bubbles on the sole! These shoes are very comfy and perfect for days outside or at the office. Waiting for the next future colorways and collaborations 😊

I love the way you can transform your look just by playing with different shades of lipstick and take your make up from day, if you’re opting for a soft nude, to a full on glamorous look, if you choose to go with a bold red for example!

Though I did wear quite a few matte lip colors in the past, this year I have a new-found appreciation for glossier shades. Aside from the fact that I love the dimension and fullness glossy lipsticks add to your lips, I have finally found a product that combines both – glossy finish and staying power of a lip stain. I tried this lovely red shade from Lancôme while I was visiting my mom in Sweden and absolutely loved it! The color selection is gorgeous, and this long-wear glossy stain creates a beautiful vinyl texture finish that stays on all day long! Naturally, I absolutely love that! When it comes to favorite lip colors, I like to switch shades depending on a season. Summer time, I tend to gravitate towards a softer palette, but for Fall, I love to go a little bolder and brighter, and this year is no exception of course!

My current favorite is Absolu Rouge cream Lipstick shade 371 in a lovely Ruby Red. I love the way this bold red adds an instant dose of polish and glamour to your look! Pretty much my go-to evening shade at the moment, I usually pair it with an understated eye make up, lightly bronzed cheeks and strong brow.

Never been a fan of big changes; it usually gives me lots of anxiety and insecurities. But I guess I'm not alone about this; everyone experience these feelings in different ways.

As you can see my blog has a new look & feeling. (I'm still trying to fix it to make it look a bit different).
Let me know if there is anything I should change.
Also pretty much all of my old content is gone because I felt I needed to get rid off some of the negativity my old blog had even though I had plenty of content I loved.

I'm really looking forward to work on this new site as well as bringing you guys together with me. 💜

Finally spring is coming slowly in and the warm weather will be soon here. During the summer I like to put less time into straightening my hair and damaging it with heat. That's why from time to time; I like to create this look.😍

Five minutes under the heat of your blowdryer or curling wand can be brutal. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice styled hair just to keep cool. You can get big, bouncy waves and smooth, curls by braiding your hair and letting it air-dry overnight while you sleep, instead of plugging in. Keep your cool this summer with these heatless hairstyle.

  1. I usually apply a heat protection into my hair; The sun still there and as your skin you should take care of it and provide it some protection.
  2. Personally I like to apply Tecni.ART Waves Fatales, gel-cream from L'oréal . This formula is lightweight, and water based.
    This product helps your curls to stay wavy wavy up to 24 hours; which is great if your hair is heavy and you have hard time keeping your curls all day.
  3. Braid your hair with big and small braids to create different textures and waves in your hair.
  4. Sleep & in the morning after getting your make up done; take down your braids.
  5. Style as you whish and Voilá! You are done😘

Gym shoes they are not. They’re designer sneakers, and they look damn sharp.
– You can wear them with just about anything.

Keep ‘Em Clean
Dirty sneakers are fine for mowing the lawn, but they’re an eyesore at the dinner table. So keep a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on hand to remove scuffs, or just Make a paste using water and Oxi Clean powder. Rub it into the stain, let it sit for five to 10 minutes, and blot it dry with a clean wet cloth.

DO: Save the toe
Perfectionists, take note: If you just slide some Sneaker Shields into your shoes, you can preserve the new look. The plastic inserts fit inside the toe and prevent creases. And months from now, your sneaks will still look fresh from the box
