Down Under

Black triangle bra, nude brief, and a sheer lace skirt that I usually wear under long masculine jackets, mini skirts or oversized t-shirts, like this one here, all by Intimissimi Summer 2015 collection.
New Almond Blossom moisturizing face cream for normal to dry and sensitive skin by Korres, that offers constant dehydration and nutrition. Plus it smells of almond blossoms -have I said that already?

Mission: Beauty Buffering

Lots and lots of new beauty products keep coming hand in hand with Spring paying tribute to blossoms,
glorifiers to make your skin radiant from head to toe. Molton Brown launched “Blossoming honeysuckle and white tea” -eau de toilette followed by shower gel, body lotion and hand cream- while “L’ile au the” by Annick Goutal has notes of mandarin, white musk, white tea and osmanthus, inspired by Jeju island somewhere in the seas of Korea.
Clarisonic Pedi home foot care treatment consists of a pedi device, a brush head, a pedi buff, a balm and a serum for your feet and I must confess that the results are astonishing. How else could I wear those Stathis Samantas sandals?

“Sittin’ pretty” and “Bump up the pumps” are two candy colors by Essie and
Wild Rose sleeping facial creme by Korres is your personal nocturnal worker, doing some extra time just for your good looks. You’ll be astounded by the next day effect from day night 1.
As for the rest of your body, here I present you the exotic exfoliating scrub and shower gel by “Une nuit a Bali”, a high-end range of perfumes and 100% natural body care products, each of them formulated with a unique fragrance of Ylang-Ylang and Jasmine.

Molton Brown, Une nuit a Bali and Annick Goutal are all available at Heaven on Earth.
You can find Clarisonic Pedi exclusively at Sephora stores.

Golden Rules

A week with plenty beauty arrivals just in time to welcome March.
Kérastase launched the new luxe series “Chronologiste”, introducing an innovative exfoliating rinse-out product for the first time.
“Soin Gommage Renovateur” is to be used prior to the shampoo and the rejuvenating hair mask for deep detox.
The procedure is completed with the “Parfum en Huile”, a scented hair oil conceived by the famous perfumer Alberto Morillas,
giving a shiny and silky look.
I performed the whole ritual -followed by a head and neck massage- at Andreas Coiffure, which left my hair
lightweight and glowing. However, if you prefer to enjoy the ritual at home, you can have an amazing outcome as well especially with a professional hair dryer and brush like the ones by Remington.
Giorgio Armani also launched the Summer 2015 collection consisting of an earthy eye shadow palette, a nude sparkly lipstick, a discreet shimmering powder and a bronze nail polish. In addition, the Armani Prive perfume series counts a new member, “Pivoine Suzhou”, inspired by the gardens of Asia and more specifically the Chinese peonies *eyeroll*
Last but not least, my newest nail lacquer obsession “All eyes on nude” belongs to the Cashmere Matte collection of Essie and it’s the absolute nude color.

Violet

Trying to feel pretty while I’m having an awful cold.
Thank god for the new limited edition of Korres: The “Delicate Violet” nail polish is from the Chic collection while the “Seductive” twist lipstick from the Glowing collection. Am I glowing or what.
The bottle that looks undefined familiar to you is no other than Disaronno, only that this time it wears Versace for a good cause. With every bottle that you buy you help the Fashion 4 Development Association, plus you get to make the best amaretto sour. That’s what keeps me attached to life as we speak.

Heaven is a place on earth

Whether you want to find your Holiday gifts or you really need something to cheer you up, Heaven on Earth is your place to be. I visited the all-set-for-Christmas shop last week and it made my day. Annick Goutal, D.L. & Co. home fragrances, the new Laduree candles, Bumble & Bumble hair products, Molton Brown, Agraria soaps -you name it.

Pink Gold

There are some new entries on the block and here is all in full display.
I love sector “Beauty” but those of you who know me for a while most probably have noticed that I have a thing with hair. I use a few beauty products but 
hair, well is my thing you know.

First of all, Kérastase has a new, quite important launch. “Discipline”  is a procedure that offers discipline, of course, and anti frizz control to the unruly hair that actually stays untouched from humidity, while at the same time is easier to style. It is divided in two parts: The first one is the Discipline Protocol that you get to do in an authorized hairdresser. I did mine at Ilias Zarbalis, and I came out with smooth, shiny and lightweight hair that will last for ten hairwashes. The second part is the one you do at home by using accordingly the shampoo, mask and anti-frizz spray, to preserve the “Discipline” effect. I loved it. 

Famous, beloved greek brand Korres just put out the most magnificent CC Cream I have ever used, based on Wild Rose, the trademark ingredient of Korres beauty products since the very beginning. This colour correcting cream SPF30 is a multi-tasking product: a moisturizer that brightens the skin while at the same time covers all the imperfections, for a make up free look.

And then we have a very uncommon perfume, “Black Opium”. Coffee Floral, boyish and dark the new fragrance by Yves-Saint Laurent 37 years after the launch of the legendary “Opium” is highly addictive. And how cool is that bottle, right.

Sleek

Getting my staying-alive 70s jumpsuit out for a walk has never been the same after adding some major sparkle
with Yannis Sergakis fine jewelry. A yellow and black gold pendant and cuff with diamonds accompanied my beloved V ring from the Charnières collection.
Αnd if you wonder about the radiant make up, that’s because I got a skin treatment with the Powercell series
of products by Helena Rubinstein and the Re-Plasty Laserist serum, which is a miracle on its own.
Shoes:
A lovestory that was born a couple of months ago when I came face to face with a pair of satin sandals with pink metallic strap,
by -who else- Raf Simons for Dior.
