High sugar concentration, colors, gelatin and corn syrup are the ingredients used for these yummy gumdrops: Wearable t-shirt (illustrated clothing with sketches originally made with ink on paper), Viktor & Rolf BonBon perfume, leather lace ups in the color of pomegranate by Nak and porcelain lucky charm by Yannis Sergakis Adornments.
Fun guaranteed when being with my besties.
As for last night’s outfit, it was composed of a red Vivienne Westwood Anglomania crepe dress, a pair of nude-fuchsia Stathis Samantas for Mi-Ro sandals, a metallic Marc Cain clutch and a pair of grandeur Katerina Psoma snake earrings.
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.
And this is the most beautiful dress I have ever slipped in. Not really a dress, since it’s a three piece miracle made of silk crepe in an icy lavender color, consisting of a maxi skirt, a top and a pvc belt.
By glorious Roksanda Ilincic.

It’s time for a serious beauty session people. Along with Korresbest 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.
Last ten days were about:
A soft light blue-grey silk dress by V Society (damn I love this color).
Black high heel suede sandals by Santethat popped through my door the other day. “Charnieres” gold and diamond drop earrings and cuffs by the ever so talented Yannis Sergakis. In love with them is an understatement.
My whole house smells of rose. Rose Soaps and Rose scented wax soapdish by Santa Maria di Novella, one of the most ancient pharmaceutical workshops in Florence that produces enchanting soaps and perfumes since the 16th century. Exclusively at El.Marnieri gallery.
Mariah’s final recording “Utakata no Hibi”(1983), one of those albums to be on my Top 5 list for life.
Handmade easter eggs as usual, and a small getaway to catch up on lost sleep.
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.
