The essential salon day at Karma

IMG_7750I have yet to share all about my hair. I have been going to Karma Salon in Old town Scottsdale Arizona for a little over a year now. You will not find a more energetic team and relaxing but still upbeat atmosphere to get your salon fix! The layout makes everyone feel like they should when they enter any salon, taken care of. Many of my friends who have gone have said the same thing. Knowing that the stylists care about your look is what creates this successful salon. Visit their site :karmasalons.com/

Their focus is on green products. Your hair, spray tan, and nail treatments will all be taken with great care. Not only that but you can get your makeup done as well. Having a down to earth salon that does it all is hard to find. Everything from products and service all bring together a “vibe that brings good karma.”

What I was hesitant to try was spray tanning and bleaching my hair. I knew I was good hands and felt comfortable to be able to experiment and have fun with hairstyles. Bleaching my hair in an form has always concerned me but Karma uses Oleplex as well great organic products. One of my favorite the salon introduced me to is Neuma hair-care products!

Spray tanning at Karma is actually a great air bush tanning technique and the consultants will make you feel extremely comfortable. I never thought I needed to try out spray tanning until I went for it! I was left with a natural beautiful sun kiss glow to add some color and life back into my skin.

 

Karma Salon in Scottsdale truly provides all the essentials of a salon day!

Hair & Makeup touchup done  at Karma Salon

I have been slowly going blonde for a year now, my goal is to be an ashy cool tone blonde but still trying out other looks a long the way.  I just recently cut and lightened my base. I got bangs and added lighter blonde pieces to my balayage thanks to my hairstylist Josie at Karma salon! She recently bumped up the base so I do not have black roots making it into a soft brown still with a cooler tone and ashy balayage. In my balayage Josie also added in low-lights to break it up which creates the blend from my roots through out my hair.

My current hair, just freshly done for a new Fall look!!

 


Here are some picture of a few of my friends who had a great experience at Karma Salon and can be seen through their fresh hair styles!

 


My friend Vanessa actually just got her hair done a couple months ago and I came along to see the transformation! She got a cut and color and now has a stunning full hairstyle.

My dress is from Joie! It has the perfect amount of detail in it, I love the print and fit. My  favorite part is the tie detail, you can wear tied or untied. I also love pairing this dress with booties. My favorite to pair is the Dalton from Joie in the color Whiskey.

Summer Reds

Too long of a break, I know. I still have great plans and ideas in the making, but finally am back to blogging!

IMG_7880I wanted to share an outfit of the day with a beautiful floral printed summer top from Rebecca Taylor. I was not a fan of red until this summer, and would never want to have a red and blue mix print until I fell in love with this top! The detail of the mixed metallic silk and tie-sleeve detailing is gorgeous.

I paired the top with white skinny jeans from AG jeans and folded them to show off my sandals. The sandals are light and dark blue lace up leather sandal from Joie.

Thank you everyone for supporting me and hope you enjoyed this summer outfit post! I am way to ready for fall to come. I mean, it was only 104 degrees today in Arizona, so its starting to cool off (hey, anything under 110.. we will take it!) Are all of you ready for fall?

Spring is almost here 

Hello my lovely friends! It’s been way too long since my last post. I have been focusing on so much, including the direction of my blog. I want to change a lot and post high quality content. This would mean better pictures, links, and vision boards. There is so much I want to share and have great plans!  

Here a few outfit inspiration pictures that I have shared Via Instagram (@anicamz)
I have also been dealing with personal issues that have been hard to cope with. I am finally feeling like myself again and cannot wait to change the direction of my blog! 

Thank you so much for your support.

Christmas Spirit

IMG_6854I am trying my best not to be a “cotton headed ninny muggins” this year by trying to be more festive. In the heart of Arizona it is kind of hard to feel the holiday spirit when it is over 70 degrees during the day. Every year the winters get shorter and shorter. Despite the sunny weather, Christmas decor must go on! (more…)

New Tarteist Contour Palette

I ordered my Tarteist Contour Palette during the VIB sale, since I had 25% (retail price $45) and ordered it the morning it was released. I have had time to finally decide my thoughts on this palette and also put a review on Sephora. If you’re amazed by the beauty of this palette prepare for some shocking news.  (more…)

Black & Brown Suede

I cannot help but fall in love with suede, especially brown shades of suede. I am the type of person who purchases brown shoes instead of black. To me brown matches with everything. I am trying to wear more black shoes and other colors that aren’t apart of browns, but here is my simple outfit that consists of black and browns.  (more…)
