Carry less, feel more

Summer of 2020 has been quite difficult for the biggest part of the world and I am no exception.
However, amongst life’s ups & downs I was lucky enough to spend some days on the beautiful Cycladic island of Serifos, which I hadn’t visited in years. I traveled light, stayed on a magnificent traditional house, ate tons of fresh vegetables and fish, swam a lot and felt grounded.

I’m very sensitive in matters of sustainability and respect of nature, so I am thrilled to have discovered
Anaskela eco-friendly microfibre beach towels, made of plastic bottles (six bottles each, to be more specific!).
They are extremely lightweight, dry fast between your dives and have a sand-free texture.
I took three from the Geometria collection with me, slept on them, wrapped them around my body and that was all I needed to have during those days spent under the sun.
Check Anaskela beautiful and ethical collection of patterns and you can thank me later, when you realise you don’t have to carry around a heavy bag full of towels ever again.

Buy better, buy less.

Korres, Colour & my Athens

A hidden gem of downtown (and really old) Athens was the location for Korres Athens press event,
where I was introduced to all their Fall 2018 beauty launches. Amongst the new OUD eau de parfums and a dozen of colourful make up treasures, I found my new obsessions:
The Golden Krocus Eye Elixir -yes, same as the worldwide known elixir but for the eyes (!)- and three shades of Morello Matte lipsticks with matching lip pencils (available in November) that have already passed the test of working, eating,  drinking and staying intact for hours.
And lipsticks, I know. Trust me.
Wearing H&M dress and mesh shoes.
