The retro world of today leads to a lot of creativity and opportunities. You have the freedom and space to create authentic vintage style looks, you can mix different eras to create your unique look and you can give your own cultural touch to your style. The great thing about the #instaworld? You can get inspired by persons on the other side of the world.
He has been on my favorite playlists for years and I saw a bunch of his 29 movies, but I had never seen him perform on the big screen. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised when local cinemas broadcasted the Elvis Presley comeback special of 1968. Last Thursday, it was exactly 41 years ago since Elvis passed away. It was also 50 years ago that he made his comeback special after several years of ‘live performance silence’. Enough reasons and a good time to show the Elvis comeback special in theatres on the 16th of August.
It was around the 1st of January when my retro bestie and I decided that we needed to travel more. Now you should know that I am anti-New Year’s Resolutions, but I am definitely pro-travel! Things evolved quickly from there and the excitement really started when we hit the ‘book now’ button. Destination: Cuba. Cuba appealed to us for many reasons. Most and foremost the retro look & feel. Especially when you’re already a huge retro fan living the retro life!
It’s a random Monday evening when I decide to read a book that I’ve saved for this time of the year. 2 hours and 130 pages later, I put the book away. Reluctantly. This is the kind of book that I would like to read in one night, but there’s another workday coming up. The next Sunday I have no appointments and I finish the book in another 3 hours. When I am finished I have mixed feelings. On one hand it’s one of the most beautiful stories I have read in a long time and on the other hand, I’ve just had a detailed glimpse of some of the most black pages in history.
A few weeks ago, I’ve asked my Instagram followers about which topic they wanted to read more on the blog. Interesting enough the topic hair had almost the highest score. Of course I am more than happy to shed some light on my long hair life ;-). So I will divide this topic in two parts: haircare and styling. On the menu today: hair care!
