How I ‘Do It: Hair Talk
Hey there! Here’s a post on how I style my hair. I have my sides and back shaved at a 1 on the electric razor all around, and I keep my top about 3-4 inches long. Some people like to fade in their hair, so it gradually gets a few centimeters longer from the bottom to the top of the head, but I feel like that requires more trips to the barber/salon, so I like it like this. I’ve had this hair for about 2 years and a half now. I get my hair buzzed every 3 or 4 weeks.
1. Wash hair. Because this doesn’t happen every day in the morning when I’m hurrying, and I need my hair moist before I can blow dry it, I have a spray bottle filled with tap water.
2. Apply Mousse. Of course, mousse isn’t necessary if your hair is easy to style. (With my thick, untamable Asian hair, it’s difficult to style without) I use Agadir Argan Oil’s Styling Mousse, which comes out as white foam in the palm of my hand. The brand is sulfate-free.

Thought I’d review these Clarks Original Desert Boots. A history tidbit—the Desert Boot design was brought to the attention of Nathan Clark in the early ’40s when he was at war. The suede external and crepe soles were customized from the average military boot so South African soldiers based in Cairo had better fitting footwear for desert conditions. (more history)
I got this pair recently. It took me half a week for me to break into them (with excessive walking). What I like about Clarks’s desert boots is that they have women’s sizes (5.0 upwards) and the women’s version is not different in design from the men’s. The ones I have are a 6.5, true to my foot size, and I didn’t need extra room.
They’re snug, so the front or laces might feel a bit tight the first few times wearing them. Wearing them with thin or thick socks hasn’t made that much of a difference so far; they fit my feet well either way. They don’t slip on surfaces easily and the insides grip well. Note, the material of the shoes will not keep your feet warm during winter. When I was out in -3 celsius (26 F) weather my feet felt damp and stayed cold from the dampness. Overall, I love these, from the design to the durability and the fit.
Tip: Have the hemline of your pants be a little higher than ankle length, to reveal the high top of the boots (also, wear awesome quirky high socks for that little gap). For the summer or casual wear, lose the high socks.

Vine on a simple casual-formal outfit. Try it yourself: plain T, (white, black, dark blue, gray) dark trousers, dress shoes (brogues, loafers, oxfords), simple accessories: watch, belt, glasses.
Tip: when your trousers’ cuffs are high and expose your ankles, you can wear awesome socks with oxfords or brogues to add colorful detail, or expose your ankles without visible socks with loafers.
Tip 2: with high trouser cuffs try rolling up your t-shirt’s sleeves to match
