I don't know about you guys, but when I'm looking to get dolled up for a night on the town I don't start with my outfit - I start with my hair. There's nothing quite like leaving the house rocking a hair colour and style that you love to make a girl feel like a million dollars. Maintaining naturally long hair while still exposing it to colour processing can be tough - enter Pureology hair products.
I was turned onto Pureology while looking for a haircare line that specializes in colour treated hair. After sporting an ombré colour for a few years now, I'm impressed by how much healthier my hair has become since using Pureology; seriously, my locks literally soak the products up and are left feeling so soft and manageable! Another thing that I appreciate about Pureology is the fact that they're vegan, which honestly is becoming more and more important to me as time goes on.
With my new haircare routine, fresh colour and style (thanks to Luis Pacheco at Medulla & Co in Toronto), and an all-black holiday outfit I'm ready to hit the town! Keep reading for details on my hair colour, and a chance to win your very own Pureology Prize Pack - just in time for the holidays!

I've been absolutely loving midi skirts since the summer time, and am happy to incorporate this style into a holiday outfit. This black midi skirt is perfect for a petite frame, especially paired with a black pump. The subtle amount of skin showing from underneath the crop top hits right at the smallest part of my waist and with the volume of the midi skirt it gives the allusion of a tiny frame - perfect for me, since I'm well into my holiday indulging already! Add a leopard clutch, some subtle gold jewelry and I'm ready to paint the town red in a classic holiday outfit.
I'm definitely having way too much fun with my new hair colour, thanks to top hairstylist Luis Pacheco. Luis and his team at Medulla & Co. in Toronto's Queen West were absolutely wonderful, and ensured that I left with exactly the hair colour that I wanted - a brighter ombré with warm tones, and a rich warm base. Luis also turned me onto my new favourite Pureology product: the Colour Fanatic Hair Treatment Spray, a luxurious spray that adds an extra boost of moisture after a wash, and minimizes breakage as I comb through wet hair.
I'm so excited to be able to give away an amazing Pureology prize pack full of the products that have transformed my hair! Enter below for details, and let me know if you also start off with your hair when getting dressed up for a night on the town.

I love crop tops and midi skirts! I also really love the lip color, really stands out against the black and your new hair! I've always been afraid to go that length with a skirt though because I thought it would make me look short. Do you have any tips for petite girls looking for midi skirts?ReplyDelete
How To Be More Like Lauren
Hey Lauren! I used to stay away from midi skirts as well, seeing as how I'm petite - now I can't get enough of them! For me, the trick is to pair them with high heels. Once the skirt is paired with a sleek heel, it actually helps to make us look taller! I also try to keep my top very slim fitting for some balance. I hope that helps!Delete
I looove this skirt and am so surprised it came from Forever 21! Awesome find :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Odessa! I was shocked that it was such good quality as well - definitely a great score!Delete
I love this chic and girly ensemble, it is so ideal for an evening look especially for the Christmas season! I have a very similar skirt and you just gave me a great idea :) Thank you!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad that you like this outfit, Stella! I'm a HUGE fan of the midi skirt and crop top - it always makes me feel taller and thinner (#win.) LOL. Can't wait to see how you style your skirt xoDelete
