Detailed snaps

Lately, I have been a busy student, and I will be so all through next week.
Whilst I haven't had the time to shoot a Spring related outfit yet, I will let you enjoy these detailed snaps of my current favourite pieces.
I shot these pictures a while back with a family friend who happens to be a professional photographer, always traveling around the world to capture situations and movements with his camera. You can visit his website here.
Wishing you a Happy Easter and a good start into this new week.

Planning my next trip!

Concrete jungle where dreams are made of ... I suppose you can guess where I am trying to go here! NEW YORK CITY !
Today, in exactly a month, I will be in NYC. I am extremely excited and impatiently counting the days. The first and last time I was in New York was on my 13th birthday, no need to say that I immediately fell in love with the city where any dream is possible!

As I've only been there once, I am asking you for some tips on where I can find what. As much as I know my way around NY, a bit, I am still a tourist when it comes to insider places.
I am looking for a nice Vintage/Second hand store with designer pieces, some local brand stores with affordable prices, some good restaurants and bars; (a cocktail bar suggestion is always welcome!), places to visit apart from the usual touristic attractions, beautiful shooting locations, and more! 
Simply leave your tips and suggestions in the comment section below, I will be glad to read them, and start planning my trip!

I wish I could travel to America more often and visit other cities. It might not be for right now, but definitely on my to-do list!
Make sure to follow me on Snapchat (Arianeglov) and Instagram(Arifashionthread) for daily updates and follow me around on this trip. Feel free to also comment and leave your tips there! 
I can't wait to take you on this journey along with me. 
Until then, enjoy the week and stay tuned for a new outfit post!

Balmain Hair Couture: Review

As a change from the usual outfit posts and trends, I thought it would be good to write a review on the latest products I've tested.
I recently discovered the Balmain Hair couture collection. It's been on the market for quite a while but newly hit the stores in the Netherlands such as De Bijenkorf.
The whole hair collection is composed of shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, styling sprays, perfume, hair accessories etc... I have tried the Silk Perfume and the Leave-in Conditioner

Leave-in Conditioner:
I am positively surprised by this product. Reason being that the texture of the liquide feels light when sprayed on to the hair. It also gives the hair a light feel and shine without making it look greasy. Not to forget, the lovely smell, which unfortunately does not last very long. But  hey!! who wants to have their hair smelling like they fell into a perfume bottle?!

Silk Perfume:
When it comes to this product, I like that the smell was a bit more poignant and long lasting. However, this product has an actual consistency which feels heavier on your hair and, if sprayed too much, you might get a greasy shine. This being said... you will for sure diffuse, through your hair, a lovely smell.

All products are paraben and sulphate-free, plus contain aragon oil and silk protein to hydrate and protect the hair on a daily basis.

If you have seen these products and weren't sure which one to buy, then hopefully this review might help.

10 things you didn't know about me

10 things you didn't know about me. I thought it might be interesting to read a few fun facts.

1) I used to have a big gap between my 2 front teeth which led me to wear braces.

2) I have a dog named Lucky; she's been in our family for 15 years now. In addition, I have a rabbit, called Chupito (Spanish for shot). I guess the name suits him well since he is a super active bunny and often acts like a dog or better said, he copies Lucky.

3) I have to wear glasses when driving or when having to spot something from afar. Yes yes, don't ever wave to me from afar, because if I am not wearing my glasses, I won't be able to see you! 

4) My first designer bag was the Stella McCarnet Falabella. I spent almost 2 years saving up for it and it was definitely worth it. However, I no longer own it, I sold it to buy a new bag.

5) Whenever I travel, the first things I pack are usually shoes and handbags. I tend to think these are the most important items to complement an outfit.

6) I am constantly connected to my social media accounts aka. my phone is my partner in crime. I always take my laptop and my camera along.

7) I used to take opera singing classes but unfortunately due to overwhelming school work I had to stop.

8) I am probably the most emotional person in my family, I litteraly cry for everything. When I see a sad movie , a touching advert, when I meet a friend or get a good grade.. etc! Believe it or not this Coca-Cola ad actually made me cry.

9) I never have and probably never will buy a designer handbag on the internet since I am way too picky.

10) Last but not least, I own about 50 pairs of jeans , and probably only wear 10 of them. I have been piling them up for the past years.

I'm curious, do you have a fun fact to share ?
