It’s the first long weekend of summer and I’m getting ready for my first beach getaway.
Here are my top resort wear and beauty picks for June:
Bikini top and bottom in rust red by H&M and cotton wrap dress by Glorious Beach Living.
Suede metallic sandals Toms x & Other Stories.
Ippolito straw and leather bag.
Inside my admittedly super cute tote there’s the Red Grape Sunscreen and After Sun lotion by Korres and the shimmering version of the famous Nuxe multi-purpose Dry Oil, that nourishes and illuminates face,
body and hair in one go.
Juicy Couture launches a monogramming service, so now I have my own “DI” personalized handbag from Kalogirou Stores. Which matches with my KenzoxHM silk scarf which matches with my Chanel Rouge Allure “172 Rouge Rebelle” which matches with my Serge Lutens “Cuir Mauresque” perfume which matches with everything.
In double Gs we trust.
Gucci Guilty Platinum is a limited collector’s edition of the Gucci Guilty fragrance. In a platinum-toned metal bottle with interlocking G design, so 70s and glamorous I don’t know what I love more, the perfume or the bottle.
A vivid blue personalised pouch by Koku Concept will fit some new arrivals like Embryolisse (at last available in Greece, HURRAY) and my beauty colours for the rest of summer. Fuchsia, glittery blue, some more fuchsia.
Silver leather shorts by V Society.
Embryolisse “L’éclat du Regard” it’s a trick for immediately brightening eyes, something of a smoothing radiance booster that instantly reduces dark circles and puffiness.
Smoothing and glow boosting is also the new liquid care “Énergie De Vie“ by Lancôme, that fights all environmental factors that alter the appearance of the skin, such as high stress, lack of sleep, pollution and daily life excesses, offering a burst of energizing freshness.
Essie “Viva Antigua” nail polish.
High waisted bikini Pink Sands, designed by Stefania Frangista whose work I’ve shown to you several times in the past. The best UV Protective products of Shiseido, a classic luxury choice that never fails to amaze me with its excellent quality. And the always favourite Hei Poa goodies, the body oil with Monoi extract and the exfoliating douche scrub. Digital print pouch from morning till evening by Thalatta Concept.
Wet Force Aging protection Face Cream, UV Protective Compact Foundation -a best seller-
and UV Protective Liquid Foundation.
I don’t actually intend to wear them alltogether at once, but a few injections of baby or salmon pink
here and there damn! they are uplifting.
Scallop-edged pumps Chloe because mid-heels are the new sneakers, colour blocked shoulder bag Marc Jacobs, “Sunshine State of Mind”, “High Class Affair” and “Lounge Lover” nail lacquers by Essie Spring 2016, “Dragon’s Blood Fix Serum” by Nip+Fab.
