Summer Hair Trend - Braids

*pictures from Pinterest
This season I can notice a trend that went beyond the runways and can be seen everywhere: the braid. I'm impressed in how many ways you can wear braids, from casual to edgy to chic. The braid is a great option for any occasion, whether for a wedding, clubbing with friends or a dinner. A braid is different and pretty. My current favorite is a Messy Double Dutch braid. For those who aren't familiar, a Dutch braid is essentially a French braid.  It’s the same technique, but instead of crossing sections over the top, you slip them underneath. It looks difficult to create but it's fairly simple. I also love Fishtail braids (pictures below). To create them, divide your hair in two even sections. Take a thin strand from one section and pull it across the other section. Keep altering the sides until you reach the end of your hair.

How to style the off-the-shoulder trend

One of summer's biggest fashion trend from tops to dresses to jumpsuits, is the off-the-shoulder style. Because I tend to buy more and more off-the-shoulder bardot tops and cocktail dresses for my wardrobe, I wanted to put together a few styling tips for how I pair my current favorite pieces of clothing.
Off-the-shoulder tops/dresses expose a little skin without being too sexy. Talking about that, the skin on your shoulders is your best accessory for the off-the-shoulder trend, so take care of it and pamper it by exfoliating! Depending on the accessories, they can be dressed up or be made to look super casual.

Top things to do in Hainan

For me, Hainan is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The island is the smallest and southernmost province of China, known for its tropical climate and fantastic beaches. In today's post I'll show you where to go and what to do in this incredible exotic paradise ☺ When planning a trip to Hainan I highly recommend flying to Sanya and not to the capital Haikou that is also the largest city there.

How to create custom iPhone cases

If you ever thought about making a custom case for your iPhone, iPad or Samsung Galaxy, Caseapp is a great option. The Swedish brand does not only make custom phone cases but also laptop skins. They have an awesome bunch of marbles and other cool designs that you can customize with their designing tool. For my iPhone 5s I decided to go for a Black Marble* print. You can choose between glossy or matte cases. I took a matte finish.
