Style Sessions - Denim Jacket


Denim jacket. The one piece in our closet that can be worn anytime of the year. I own two denim jackets that I purchased probably 10 years ago and they are good as new. No woman's wardrobe would be complete without a denim jacket. It's so versatile, you can style a denim jacket in a million ways and it's perfect for layering between seasons.

What's in my travel bag - skincare & makeup


Oops I did it again!!  I packed too many products. Again! It happens every single year where I promise myself that I will pack only the necessary products but end up packing too many. Does this happen to you too? On the other hand, I think I somehow did good on the makeup.

Products I used today and ootd




Hello my beautiful girls!! How are you today? I am back with another #makeupoftheday and #ootd post. I am currently getting ready (and packing) for our last week of our summer vacation. We are visiting my parents (again) next week and staying with them and we are planning to spend most of our day time at the beach, then in the afternoon we like to dress up and go for drinks with our dearest friends.

Things I love on Sundays


Game of Thrones - my favourite tv-show ever, I mean, if you are not watching this, you should. When I first started watching it, it took me a while to get to used to this kind of plot, I am more of a 'Friends' or 'Sex and the City' or 'How I met your mother' kind of watcher, so it was difficult for me to adapt to this.

Ag Pharm - an introduction to the brand



You know my love for skincare products and my excitement when I discover new brands and products. There are so many brands out there that I haven't tried before and they all come out with new products, it's just too difficult to keep up with all new releases and find the right products for my skin type and those products that will be a staple in my skincare routine, a.k.a. the products my skin loves.

It's a haul - new products


Happy Thursday everyone!! Are you excited for the weekend? Do you have any plans or are you getting ready for your summer vacation?? I am visiting my parents for the weekend, I plan to travel to my hometown tomorrow as soon as I finish work, my hometown is 5 minutes from the beach so spending time in the sun and relaxing will be my only plans this weekend. Life is better at the beach right?

On Wednesdays we wear pink


I expressed my love for pink a million times here on my blog. I cannot help it! I love pink. Any kind and any shade of pink. I love it on my clothes, summer dresses, accessories, bags, necklaces, earrings, scarves, pink makeup, give me anything pink and I will love you forever.

Summer lipsticks


Happy Friday lovely friends!! Are you excited for the weekend? Do you have any plans or getting ready for your summer vacation? I have plans for Saturday and Sunday, I plan to spend both days at the beach, with a nice book and a cocktail in my hand, spending time at the beach makes me so happy and the sound of the waves relaxes me so much. 

Products I used today and OOTD


Happy Sunday everyone! How are you all doing?? I am at home chilling and eating ice cream as we speak, ice cream has been my best companion these days and I am waiting patiently until tonight, it's Game of Thrones night since it is the premiere of the new season, I cannot wait for the first episode, it's been a year since the last dramatic episode of season 6. So it will be a pizza/wine night and I hope the new episode does not disappoint.

Upgrade your old straw bag with pom poms - diy


Hello girls! I am so excited for today's post for the reason that I will show you how to upgrade an old straw bag by using pom poms. It is an easy tutorial and it took me about 30 minutes to complete it.

Accessories for summer - wishlist


Accessories upgrade any dull and simple outfit, either that is a simple top or a dress beach. I always add an extra piece when wearing a simple outfit, a pair of statement earrings, a long necklace or a lovely summer hat, it's all in the details and Zaful has the prettiest accessories.  I used to make handmade jewellery a few years back and sold them on etsy and believe it or not, every single piece I made, I wanted to have it τοο, so sometimes, I created two pieces and kept the second one for me. 

Summer lovin - my summer essentials


Summer has made its entrance since June and I couldn't be happier about it, I love summer. We have been experiencing high temperatures since the middle of May and last week we had a heatwave and days with 44 degrees, can you please imagine that? 44 degrees in the middle of the day!! Since the change in temperature, the change in mood, skincare and wardrobe was almost immediate. 

Cherry print dress


Hello my lovely girls! How are you today?? How are you handling the heat?? The weather was at its normal stage at the beginning of June, we even had rain for one or two days, but now it is out of control, the temperature is increasing day by day and the forecasts said we may experience temperatures like 43-44 degrees earlier this summer, normally this happens mid July. We will see, I hope it goes smoothly. 

The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil


I haven't done a review on The Ordinary products before but I have been using them for a long time now. When I placed my first order, I bought the Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5, the Buffet which is an anti-ageing product and the 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil. I haven't tried Rose Hip Seed oil before but a lot of you recommended this one so I thought I should try it next.

4th of July inspiration


4th of July. Independence day. Fireworks, BBQ, white, blue and red clothes. Even though I am not a US citizen and don't celebrate this day, I am always excited for today's posts all over the blogsphere. My feed is full of amazing inspiration from the ladies I follow and I always look forward to this special day. So, I have prepared for the first time a white, red and blue board/wishlist for 4th of July. It's the first time I do this and I hope you find it inspirational.

Window shopping - summer 2017


Happy Monday everyone!! How are you handling this hot weather? I am constantly inside in front of the air condition, the sun burns and the temperature is extremely high these last days so we must be extremely cautious. Do you have the same heat wave in your country?


I love gingham


The last time I wore a gingham dress, I was probably six or seven years old, until last year when I found this lovely strapless dress from Boohoo on sale. This year, this trend is having a big revival and I couldn't be happier since I love this print. 

It's blush time


 With the temperature going up and the heat almost unbearable, I find myself using less products on my face day by day. I spent June with only sunscreen, lipstick and blush on and believe me, it's more than enough when it's 37-39 degrees Celsius out there (that is 98-102 Fahrenheit).

Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask - Review


My love and addiction on face masks is well known here on my blog. I tried a million of face masks and that also includes sheet masks that made their appearance to the west world a few years back, but I am slowly getting to know and try these products.

4 things I am excited for this summer and things you can do


Summer:
Hair gets lighter,
Skin gets darker,
Water gets warmer,
Drinks get cooler,
Music gets louder,
Nights get longer,
Life gets better.

Let's talk about serums


Hello my lovely ladies. I am back with a skincare post and today I talk about four serums I am currently using in my skincare routine. Serums are well known to the beauty world as powerful moisturizers that deliver active ingredients to the skin, that is why serums are used after cleansing and toning the skin.

My love for maxi dresses


Hello my lovely ladies! Today I have two looks I wear a lot these days and I am talking about maxi dresses. They are comfortable, stylish and in my case, maxi dresses are perfect to wear on days when you forgot to shave your legs the night before and you cannot go out wearing a mini dress (don't judge me!).

5 products from Essence I have been enjoying


I talked about Essence many times on my blog and how much I love their products. Essence is a European brand that offers makeup products in affordable prices and I don't believe there is a makeup addict out there that they haven't tried at least one of their products. They have some hits and misses of course, since not all products are wonderful and cannot be compared with other more expensive brands but there are some hidden gems in their collections. 

5 ways to use a scarf in an outfit


How can someone upgrade any simple outfit, you ask? But with adding the right accessories, of course. I love to add a statement necklace on top of a white t-shirt or wear a pair of statement earrings. I also love scarves and I have a ridiculous large amount of scarves. Using scarves in an outfit is the perfect way to make any simple outfit stand out, more special and unique. 


Nivea Visage Aqua Sensation Refreshing Cleansing Gel


On a recent trip to the shops I noticed Nivea had 40% off their products and I picked up a few new products I haven't tried before and the Nivea Aqua Sensation Refreshing Cleansing Gel is one of them.

Four ways to style a white off shoulder top


Hello my beautiful ladies! I am back with another fashion post today, I love fashion and I love clothes and I would love to incorporate more fashion related posts here, so here we are.  The sun is out so it is a beautiful day to be outside and take some pictures, so I grabbed my coffee, Tyrion, my phone and tripod and I headed out! And it is indeed a lovely day outside.

Dresses & earrings for summer


Another wishlist? Yesss, because I cannot get enough of summer dresses. Summer is here my beautiful ladies and the heat is real. I put my jeans at the back of my closet (see you  in October my lovely jeans) and dresses are out. It's the only thing I wear in summer since they are flowy and airy and so comfortable to wear. I love all kinds of dresses; long, short, print, floral, striped, long sleeve mini dress, you name it. 

Sheet masks - what I have been using this month


I cannot remember who recommended sheet masks to me since it was a long time ago, but I would like to say a big thank you to that person. I have been using them regularly and they are a part of my skincare routine and I am hooked, it is my favourite product to use after a stressful day and my favourite subject to talk about and also, read posts with recommendations on what to try next. 

Summer, beach, new swimsuit


A long time ago, I was curious about the history of swimwear and how and why women started to wear a swimming suit. And after watching a documentary about the history of clothing and how people used to dress throughout the years, I looked more into it and found some interesting information.

When life gives you lemons, wear them!


Hello my beautiful friends, how are you today? I am doing great and enjoying these lovely summer (and hot) days! 

Sun, beach, sunscreen


You are familiar with the fact that we must use a sunscreen 365 days a year, right? That said, I never used to bother using one before hitting thirty and I didn't bother protect my skin from the damaging rays of the sun. In Cyprus, we have an intense summer with extremely hot days and these days usually last 6-7 months. So yes, the summer here is extended and I feel I must protect my skin more.

Royal Rose Eye Cream

 
Hello beautiful girls! I am back with a review on the most amazing eye cream, you know I love rose products and I have been using lots lately and the Royal Rose Eye Cream is my most precious skincare product I am currently using.

L'oreal Paris Infallible Mega Matte Lip Gloss


You know you came here for another lipstick post, right?? The L'oreal Paris Infallible Mega Matte Lip Gloss is the newest member to my *lipstick* family and these two beautiful tubes won a special place at the top of my dresser because they are just amazing.

L'OREAL Mythic Oil Sparkling Shampoo

 

I am sucker for a nice packaging. I am a sucker for a nice packaging plus glitter. Anything that has glitter in it, I want it. And I must admit I reached and picked this product from the shelf  and put it in my cart before I even read the label and see what this product is.  So today I will be talking about the L'oreal Mythic Oil Sparkling Shampoo

Spring Lipsticks


Hello my beautiful girls!! How are you today??? I am back with another lipstick post, you know lipsticks are my obsession and I love to use a different one each day. Since the weather is changing and getting warmer, our lipstick preferences change too and I like to switch things up and use more neutral shades and pinks.

Korean products wishlist


Today I have a different post to share. Ι know everyone loves korean skincare products and there are so many brands, products and shops to choose from. I was introduced to them a few months ago and I tried some really good products that made my skin glow, and of course, I tried the famous 10-step korean skincare routine to see what all the fuss is about and let me tell you, I am really really impressed!  Today I would like to share my wishlist of some products I intend to buy.

Ikarov Rose Water Review


Using rose water to cleanse and refresh skin has been well known for centuries. The famous for her beauty routine Cleopatra, used milk and rose petals in her bath to smooth and soften her skin, both ingredients popular for their nourishing and soothing effects on skin.

Going on holiday? These are the clothes you need



Have you planned your summer holidays yet?? I haven't but I hope I get to book tickets and hotel later this month.  Last year I travelled to Crete twice, in June with my fiance and in August with my parents and it was amazing. I love Crete, I visited this beautiful island before and every time I get to discover other beautiful places and beaches. And I don't mind travelling there again this year but we will see since i have some other options in mind.

Is it summer yet?


My love for dresses has been discussed here enough times to persuade you that I love dresses. More specific, floral and colourful dresses.

YesStyle Beauty Box - Sweet Spring Makeup Kit


After my little disappointment on the last YesStyle Beauty Box I received last month to review, I decided to sign up again and I was lucky to get chosen to review the spring beauty box as well. I started to explore Korean beauty and products not long ago and I am a huge fan and this beauty box has some Korean makeup products too so it would be great to try these too. So let's see what's in the box!

Favourite product of the month - W7 Butter Kiss Lipstick in Red Tulip


The W7 craziness continues! I swear, I want every single item from W7 cosmetics because 1) they are really affordable and you can justify to spend 3-4 euros on an impulse buy and 2) their lipsticks are soo good!

Sun, beach, dress


Raise your hands if you started getting ready for summer!!! (raising both hands and feet)!
After clearing out my closet and throwing away clothes I don't need, don't fit or don't like anymore, it's time to do some shopping and add a few pieces for summer. Since last year, I have been loving the off-shoulder trend and I think I will continue to wear off-shoulder tops and dresses this year too, it's so feminine and classy.

Three mascaras from W7 Cosmetics


Hello lovely girls!! How are you today? I am back with my most favourite post for this month and I wanted to sit down and write about these three W7 mascaras for so long (to be honest, I started writing this post as soon as I tried these mascaras since I wanted to write every single detail about their performance but I did not finish it) but I wanted to provide swatch pictures too, and I just couldn't do it. It was impossible. Girl, the struggle is real, I cannot capture my lashes correctly to show how a mascara performs to save my life.

Technic Mega Bronze Quad Palette


I discovered Technic cosmetics last year and I recently purchased three of their amazing highlighters. If you haven't checked these highlighters out, you really should. They are pigmented and affordable and I also purchased the pink sparkle highlighter as well that was released this month and was featured in the Technic instagram account. A girl needs some sparkle in her life!!

Two lipsticks I must wear more - Wet 'n' Wild Cherry Picking & Stoplight Red



If you are a lipstick hoarder like me, you must fully understand my pain. I have so many lipsticks but I only wear the same 5-6 I really love and put aside really good ones and forget I have them. I usually take photos for a blog post, put them away and then forget all about them.

I purchased these two Wet 'n' Wild lipsticks a long time ago and I only used them once or twice so I put both of them in my makeup bag and I plan to wear them every day in rotation for a week or two.

Need firmer and smoother skin? Try the Rosa Pretiosa Natural Rejuvenating Serum from Natural Cosmetic


When it comes to skincare, I like to incorporate a large amount of products to my daily routine. And I tried almost everything; creams, serums, essences, toners, oils, the list is endless and from the minute you start taking care of your skin and have a regular routine, you are hooked.

Face masks - what I have been using lately


Face masks are an important step to my skincare routine. They are no longer a luxury but a necessity. I use a face mask 3-4 times a week (sometimes more) and my skin feels so good after I use one, feels and looks healthier, has a nice glow and gets all the great ingredients a mask has to offer. 

Sunday is for relaxation


Keep Calm and relax, it's Sunday!

Sunday is my second favourite day of the week, I love Saturdays best but I always do household, blogging or run errands and usually I don't find time to relax and have some 'me' time. So I promised myself I would have a whole day to relax and do nothing (besides preparing lunch and dinner) and I found many ways to do that.

Milani Runway Lashes Instant Volume Mascara



I found a mascara that I really love. And I don't believe it. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the Milani Runway Lashes Instant Volume Mascara that got me all excited this week.

KIKO Milano Smart Lipstick - 904 Strawberry Pink

 

If you haven't tried the KIKO Milano lipsticks before, you are missing out. It's been so long since I wanted to try them and I did placed an order a long time ago, but as it happens when you own too many lipsticks, I forgot I had this gem.
