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.

On the skin: Color Clone 23 make up, the new mascara Mystic Blacks
and Wanted Rouge 102 on the lips, all by Helena Rubinstein.

Dusk till dawn

I visited the In Style GR headquarters the other day with a most vibrant and cheerful outfit, which the fashion team deeply appreciated it and called it Look of the Day (thank you guys).
What is more important in this post is the 24/7 kit that makes my life easy as the weather gets hotter and hotter and my everyday make up tends to melt.
The green cream you see below is the Nude Magic CC (Color Correction) Cream that arrived to make small miracles, like being transformed into foundation once you put it on and neutralising redness (!) and red spots. It also works as moisturizer and has SPF 20. All in one if you ask me, I absolutely love it.
Eyelashes: the second most important thing from the morning till the evening. The shape and design of False Lash Wings offers an butterfly effect, it’s impressive.
Last but not least, the lipstick. For those who follow me for a while, they might have noticed that this girl doesn’t use lip gloss. Ever. The product I’m presenting you might look like a lip gloss but actually has a matte effect that lasts, without the annoying dryness on the lips. Herewith I present you Glammatte, no.511 (Skinny Tangerine), my favorite hue from May till September. All products by L’Oreal Paris.

28 °C and counting

While packing my beach bag initiating the summer season, two things are in my mind:
New bathing suits and suncare. Latest obsessions are no other than the bikini and tea-cup swimsuit by Paolita coming straight from the 50s, though I wouldn’t say no to the crochet beach dresses either, from the same collection.
Apart from my facial sun protection throughout the year, my pochette also includes L’Oreal Paris Sublime Sun protection milk for golden tan SPF20, L’oreal Elvive dry hair oil (how could I pull through the summer without a hair oil?) and the Radical hair gel for a much needed natural wavy hair look.

Korres Summer

It’s time for a serious beauty session people. Along with Korres best seller products (famous After-Sun Yoghurt lotion and sunscreens to name a few), new items made an entry that need your undivided attention. The Soothing after-sun yoghurt facecream is even lighter, perfect for every skin and bound to become a smash. A series of new metallic nail lacquers are added to the collection, such as Metallic Taupe and Flashy Fuchsia (the one I tried below, flashy as hell).
The Santorini Vine collection: The Shower gel and Bodymilk that come with a fruity scent from greek vineyards will knock your nostrils off. I’d love to see it become a unisex eau-de-toilette sometime soon.
And colors! The volcanic minerals Eyeliners and Twist Eyeshadows are extremely long lasting and easy to apply.
Snaps from yesterday’s presentation at Korres headquarters.

Hey April, what’s new

A pair of Soya Fish high sole sneakers, that’s what’s new. Very lightweight and comfortable, in an ice white color (I’m so in for the pink-gold Golf shoes, too). An everyday fix for sure.
“Ρomper Room” and “Find me an Oasis” are the new summer nail lacquers by Essie.
Hydrangea in pastel pink. 
Bio-Oil, the beauty essential that just arrived in Greece: A dry-oil miracle for special treatments, such as dehydrated skin, dark spots, scars etc. They promised me that my skin will look new in a couple of months so see you around June.
Enoe me “Double Arrow” golden cuff -check their silk pants, it’s the best thing you’ll try this summer.
Snaps from a19th century building in the heart of Athens, that after many decades will be revealed under new identity later on this year.

Pre Xmas Warming Up

Getting ready for winter holidays with just the necessary (ok maybe not just the necessary).
Nothing gets me going more than some Christmas spirit or to be exact, alcohol spirit. So here comes Absolut Originalitythe new edition of Absolut vodka was created with a drop of ice blue color in every bottle, giving us for Christmas holidays 4 million unique Absolut bottles. Probably my favorite so far.

The feather white & black diamond ring is from the master of his kind, Mr. Nikos Koulis. The grey necklace and the turquoise pendant by Mimika Ciboyianni.

Korres presents two new eau de toilettes with pepper, for him and for her. I love pepper in perfumes. New additions from Moroccanoil, too: The styling gel and the glimmer shine for finishing. Your hair will look new, whatever that means.

Wool and silk black & white top by Yiorgos Eleftheriades is my won’t-take-it-off top for this winter, along with that gorgeous pleated skirt by SOMF.

And for the finale, lucky charms for the new year: Round pendant by Utopia Elena K., evil eye by Gregio, lucky besom by Zeus + Dione.
