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.

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.

For the twill of it

Four days are left for Dimitris Petrou highly anticipated fashion show and I had the pleasure to attend the private preview, which might have shown us nothing from the collection but yet, hairstylist Dimitris Sarantou (who will take care of the models hair for the catwalk), talked to us through all the high quality products of Moroccanoil and shared some hairstyle secrets. Plus, Essie was the there with all the new Fall/Winter colors -Dimitris Petrou chose “For the twill of it” for his presentaion, the green purple metallic color that makes your nails sparkle as a queen Μay beetle.

Lots to share

So that’s what’s new these days.

I’ll go pink for the winter (God forgive me) with a wool boyfriend coat from Marks&Spencer new collection, that hits the store of Ermou street on Thursday 26th. It’s oversized and I love it for that. In the same collection named Britains Leading Ladies”, I found a pair of leopard wedge booties, not very high/not too low. Soon to be mine, as well. For those who like it punked, a great part of the new Marks&Spencer line consists of leather jackets, tartan fabrics, leather skinny pants and british inspired motifs.

Moreover, I tried the new Ibuki skincare of the incomparable Shiseido. The name of it means “Fresh breath” and that is a promise made. The facial foam is the best I’ve ever tried, I swear. New obsessions: Shiseido lipstick PK303, Essie nail polish “For the twill of it”.

September’s treat: The fig sorbet I tried during my small getaway last weekend, for which I have plenty to share soon.
