L'oreal Evercreme saved my life!

posted on: Tuesday, November 28, 2017








This week I wanted to share something a little personal with you guys, which I never usually do, but hopefully some of you can relate. Earlier this year was extremely tough for me, physically and emotionally. I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. For those of you who don’t know, it is an autoimmune disease and a type of hair loss that mistakenly attacks your hair follicles. Seeing that my job is to be in front of the camera constantly, my confidence was at an all time low. I didn't want to take photos, as the look and feel of my hair was nothing like I was used to.

Luckily enough the patches of hair that was lost were underneath my head just below my neck hair line. Alopecia cannot be cured, but can definitely be treated, and my hair is finally starting to grow back - slowly but surely! I tried almost everything and anything from steroid shots, oils, creams and hair treatments. What I really needed was to find a really amazing product to use on a weekly basis that was gentle on my scalp and delicate hair.

Being a long time L’Oréal customer, I am so happy to have been introduced to the L’Oréal Paris EverCrème hair care line. 100% vegan, sulphate free, paraben free and rich in Apricot oils, it gently cleanses dry and brittle hair to replenish nourishment and deeply moisturize for that silky soft texture and healthy shine!
Once a week I like to give my hair a little extra love with renourishing butter that can be used to revive lifeless hair to restore its natural radiance.
After just 3 weeks of use I have noticed a huge difference in the look and feel of my brittle hair. Not to mention that the products are made with natural ingredients AND smell delicious !
I would highly recommended the L’Oréal Paris EverCrème for your everyday haircare. You can find it HERE

I hope my story can inspire some of you to use the right products!

I always Love pushing the limits and trying something different. Last year I was introduced to the most talented dynamic duo, Luis and Theresa aka Stoned Club. 

They were more than hospitable to host me in their hometown, and was super fortunate to stay with them during the summer to shoot this amazing lookbook for Vanilla Swim 

Hope you love the vibes as much as I do

Besos Barcelona











The rumours are true. Barcelona is the most romantic city in the world with the best food! It was a first for me and Jill and we absolutely loved it. 3 nights was perfection.

We were so happy with our hotel choice. I highly recommend the Grand Hotel Central. The property was in an incredible location walking distance to everything, and very affordable. Not to mention the rooftop overlooks spectacular views of the city as seen in the last photo that was taken at sunrise.

We rented electrical Bikes to cruise around the city to see the cathedral, gothic quarter, and the most famous las Rambas shortly after we made a pit stop into the market for some fresh fruits. If you followed my Instagram stories at the time , you will see that snap chatting and bike riding is not a good combination. The bigger bike fall of all time. Ended up with a brush the size of a tennis ball for a few weeks, but non the less I was ok!

 Teleferic - THE BEST TAPAS - Situated in El Born by the gothic quarter. Fresh tapas selections and the mot incredible Gin Sangria! I don't like Gin but this drink is to die for!

Dr. Stravinsky - This little hidden gem is a perfect place to go for the best mixology experience. Definitely a little Hidden Gem.

Sagrada Familia - This monumental unfinished church is set to be finished in 2024. Words can't describe how beautiful and eccentric this building is. Do not miss out on this. 

Soho House Rooftop-  little afternoon snack and have some downtime, The Soho house is the greatest chill spot. If you have a membership and or know someone with a soho house membership this club is a must go to. The rooftop overlooks the water and marina. They have endless amounts of candy and the Iberian ham was my favourite appetizer. dish ;)

BARCELONA I LOVE YOU! 

Who knew I would end up back in the city just a month later ... I will dedicate another post to that trip so stay tuned!
