Stripes on stripes & a tropical touch

Last weekend’s backpack included some fresh arrivals. First of all the AtoZGreek pouch made of canvas with a leather strap, that is big enough to carry all your sunscreens plus your hair oil. It’s tested and approved.
Moroccanoil just launched the Smooth series of shampoo, conditioner and lotion including nourishing argan oil, argan butter, Vitamin E and essential fatty acids that leave your hair bright and manageable. And THAT SCENT, AH.
The “Kitty” sunglasses by Toms come in honey color and they are very elegant and fine made, On top of that, for every pair that one purchases Toms will help give sight to a person in need. One for One, true story.
The Tahitian print bikini is a #CLZ, winning cheer-upper by Calzedonia, that huge straw hat that covers my back is by H&M and the fancy headpiece is an old palm tree somewhere in Dodecanese. All time classic blue&white stripes on the adilette slides by adidas and on my favourite traditional cotton sheeting by TE Pareo.






Let’s get serious

Ladies, I have news: It’s sales time.
One of my most beloved brands “V Society” offers the summer collection “AURA” 50% off, so if you have been dreaming about that gorgeous silk fringe kimono you saw here, thinking about investing on a statement suit or a timeless silk dress, you are a few clicks away from making it yours half price.

Gold, white and navy are masterfully paired with the classic black and the alluring burgundy. The “AURA” collection consist of loose see-through dresses, super chic jackets, high-waisted, pleated baggy pants, denim-cotton jean shorts, ultra feminine bodices and stylish kimonos.

This collection exudes a timeless feminine flare offering a numerous mix and match choices for super chic outfits, catering to the desire of being unattached by current trends.

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.



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 Sante that 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.
