Say hello to healthier hair! When our hair is lacking we turn to superfoods to fix the damage. We love dates for their sweet taste, but even more for their nutrients. Dates are packed with B5 and do wonders for our hair. You won’t see a miracle overnight, but this fruit can stop brittle hair and split ends like no other.

 Meet Enocha Tellus of Locks & Trinkets. She tells us all about her personal style and journey in the music industry!

What made you start blogging?

I first started blogging as a outlet to share my music before I even really knew what blogging was and that it was the new “thing.” My friend actually introduced me to the world of fashion blogging, I told her I think I want to start posting my outfits and she says, “Oh like Karla’s Closet?” and just like that a whole new world was revealed to me. I had honestly never read a fashion blog until I started one, but I quickly realized that this was right up my alley. I was always known for how I dressed so when I found an outlet to share my love with the world, it just seemed to fit perfectly.

Have you always been fashionable?

Apparently. My mom says I stopped letting her dress me by age 4 because I didn’t like how she styled me! I do remember crying one time because she put me in a polka dot suit and I was NOT having it.

Who do you look to for style advice?

I kind of wear whatever I want so I don’t typically look for advice persay when dressing myself, but I do love to scroll through Tumblr for style inspiration and I love people watching and checking out different fashion blogs. Also, am I the only one that still sometimes finds inspiration from store window displays? Sometimes they dress the mannequins tres chic!

What’s your beauty regimen?

I wear the same makeup day or night. I’m so low maintenance in that way. I’m more concerned with the quality of the makeup than doing crazy different styles.

I wear Makeup Forever HD concealer and foundation, MAC powder and eyeshadow, Anastasia Eyebrow gel (otherwise my eyebrows look cray), Tarte cream liner, Lorac blush, mascara and lipgloss in the ‘ben” color <– it’s like my favorite thing ever.  On days I don’t wear makeup I always make sure to use my Anastasia eyebrow gel and my Lorac lip gloss so it looks like I tried at least a little.

Music seems to be your first love, can you tell us about your experiences?

I have been recording since I was 16 years old. When I went to college I decided to go for Fashion Design, but by age 18-19 I was performing all over nightclubs and bars in Boston and recording every weekend I realized I wanted to go to school for music instead so I finished my undergrad at Berklee College of Music. I’ve had a lot of close calls with some big people in the industry, but now that I look back on it I’m glad nothing panned out because I was too young, the music industry would have eaten me alive. The past couple years my music has been on hold, but I now have a great manager and am starting to work on my very first official album with some amazing people in the industry and I’m very excited about it! :-)

What songs are currently in rotation for you?

No specific songs but I’m loving all things Lorde lately, James Blake and my all time favorite Little Dragon.

Finish the sentence: I never leave home without my camera, my lipgloss, and my cell phone charger.

I usually rant; and it’s not like I’m not ranting right now. I’m merely raving, as well. I’m raving mad about jackets worn over-the-shoulders, sans sleeves. Even our stylists are loving—and practicing—this ‘coats as capelets’ trend.

You might have witnessed the following posts on Facebook and Twitter.

There’s no need to fear this caped crusader trend. Whether it’s a coat, a sweater, or a jacket, it’s time to wear it out/over your shoulders. Here’s why:

Sometimes we get cold, and if someone drapes a coat over our shoulders, we swoon and tune into our romantic inclinations.

Why wait for a signif’ other to forfeit a jacket when you’re perfectly warm in the one you put on yourself?

Our musical ear buds are currently blossoming for the sister trio Haim. Native Angelenos Danielle, Este, and Alan Haim have a natural fan base in LA. But, their recent performance at Chloe’s first fashion show solidified their presence on the scene. We’re loving their chic look and indie sound; which has had deserving comparisons to Fleetwood Mac. Take a look at their video for “Falling” below, and tell us what you think.

Sipping coffee is one of our favorite ways to combat fatigue. But, if we don’t take care of our eyes, swelling and dark circles can be a dead giveaway that we haven’t gotten a full night of sleep. However, the solution can be found in our beloved morning brew. Whether it’s coffee or tea, the caffeine it contains acts as a simulator causing skin to constrict and become firm.  Caffeine is also full of anti-inflammatory antioxidants that can brighten skin to reduce the appearance of shadows. Try this tip: apply a teabag or coffee bag topically after steeping and then allowing to cool in ice water.
