MEET THE SKATER GIRL : MARISA

I've been thinking of doing this new segment on my blog for a while now. Having to deal with some health issues along the way made me put all of those ideas a little behind. While I'm still working on feeling better, I was able to work on this project here and there and I'm so glad I did!

So here's the main idea: I thought it would be interesting to feature some rad skater girls on the blog. I follow a bunch of them online and find them all so inspiring! It's basically like a small community out there; everyone follows each other and encourage others who lands a new trick or it gets us all pumped to try a trick we saw online, etc.

The first shredder to be featured on the blog is Marisa Garcia. She's such a sweet girl! Not only she's a rad skater but she's also a super creative mind. She likes to make art by designing shirt graphics and also creating some pieces of clothing! Check out the interview I did with her :)

'IT'S NOT ABOUT PRETTY' A BOOK ABOUT RADICAL SKATER GIRLS

In case you don't who she is already, let me introduce you to Cindy Whitehead. She became one of the top ranked professional female pro vert skateboarder back in the 70s. Step by step, she slowly made her place in this male-dominated sport. Being fierce and confident, nothing could have stopped her. To this day she's the only female to have been featured in the centerfold plus a two-page article in a skateboard magazine. This is huge y'all!

Over the last 25 years, she worked as a fashion stylist for various sports companies and athletes.
In 2010 she created her own brand named ''Girl is NOT a 4 letter word''. She signed with the largest company in professional skateboarding and designed a skateboard specifically for the female market. Not to mention that she was introduced into the Skateboarding Hall of Fame on May 13, 2016, with an introduction by legendary rock'n roll icon, Joan Jett.

NEW E-POLETTE GLASSES TO PROTECT MY EYES + GIVEAWAY

I recently decided to update my eyeglasses for a brand new pair. It's crazy how changing your glasses can make you feel like just got a makeover! It has the same effect as going to the hairdresser for a complete transformation! Right? Anyway, I found a cute thin and delicate metal frame on Polette's website. Most of the time, I usually tend to go with the plastic frames but since I already own two pairs, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and go with a metal frame. These vintage looking glasses are SO on trend right now and I find them so original and pretty.

So these glasses were part of the e-polette collection. This means they're non-prescription glasses with lenses that have a light-yellow filter that will protect my eyes from the blue light emitted by LED-screens.

DREAMY CELL PHONE CASES - THE SEQUEL

dreamy iphone cases

Last year, I wrote a post that was featuring the coolest iPhone cases I've found online at that moment. Since this post is still super popular on the blog, I decided to do a more updated version of it today.

It's basically been raining all day long and I'm still in pajamas browsing the internet on the hunt for Christmas gifts for my friends and family. In the meantime, I saved all the hottest iPhone cases I've found and regrouped them all together for you.

NEW SKIN CARE ROUTINE WITH LIERAC PARIS

I must admit that I've never really had a serious skin care routine. I know this is SO wrong! For many years, I used to buy a new product once in a while without even using it on a daily basis. I didn't care much about my skin health until a few months ago... Lately, my skin has become uncomfortable, like if my face has no more suppleness. I had the impression that my skin color faded and that it lost all its radiance. Not cool! I was lucky enough to meet this cosmetician that took some time with me to analyze my skin. Diagnosis: My skin was in desperate need of hydration!!!

I decided to try some products from the Lierac. I heard some great comments about them so I was curious to try them myself. They've just released a new collection named Hydragenist. This range ''offers a new breath of hydration for skin with fresh active textures for an immediate hydrating and replumbing effect''. Needless to say that it was exactly what my skin was asking for!
Here are the products I got:
