Black + White + Gold

Black + white + gold  is, by my opinion, a combination u can't go wrong with. Here I was inspired primarily with lovely white buttons on my skirt, which go really good with the plastic white circles necklace. A bit of gold and there we have- one quite elegant and relaxed look great for any summer evening (even dough I like to wear this combo no matter what part of the year is).
September is coming and along with that so many things, every September is an hectic month for me. Couple of events to attend, shopping and sales, end of the summer and working season, one week holiday... all this means a bunch of outfit and other pics!!;)

Red & Fuchsia Dreams

I was so thrilled when I found this magnificent top or better to say sleeveless blouse! Under a big pile of stupid/monochromatic/boring shirts and other things- there it was, hidden beauty. It was complete eye-catcher, it reminded me on some beautiful canvas painting with the most amazing color palette. I like to think it was there waiting for me, 'cause this gorgeous jewelry set I received just few days before (as a gift from my bf's mum, yes I'm so lucky, I know!), and it matches perfectly. Do u think the same?!:)
And now I'm heading to the beach with my G (Sunday is the only day I can "properly" stay there)!;)  WISHING U ALL ADVENTUROUS SUNDAY!!!

Summer Hair Care

Proper hair care during the summer season is essential! This is the time when our hair is the most "vulnerable" cause of the daily and constant exposure to many aggressive external factors- strong sun, hot temperatures, sea and chlorine water, heat, hot air, humidity.... They're all damage-threatening so we must to do something more during these months. 
I don't need to mention again how much I like and have the need to take care of my hair, all year round. Don't let it ever to be a seasonal care!!! And I have one extra reason- I paint my hair from time to time. On the pictures above u can see my current hair products like shampoos, conditioners (normal and leave-in), hair cremes... And those are my small summer tricks and tips:

- Try washing your hair less often with strong shampoos (sulfate free are excellent ones, but a bit harder to find). Very important- wash it every time from the sea or pool water!
- Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water. Use warm or cool water, and always finish with a cool to cold rinse- it gives that finishing shine!
- Limit the use of "hot" items on your hair such are the blow dryer (I use it only several times during the whole summer!), irons or hair curlers. Let your hair to dry by itself!
- GO NATURAL! Whether your hair is straight or curly/wavy. For example mine is wavy in the summer (I get "beach look" so easily without doing anything, entering in the sea is enough!) and I don't try to correct it.
- Use the abound amount of the conditioners! Keep them 2-5min after washing and rinse good! I use them as styling products as well!
- Nourish it like u do with your body! Whatever is good for your body also is good for the hair! Every time when I apply body milk/lotion I pass one time over my hair (all surface or only ends!).
- Make sure u cut the ends at least one in two months like u normally do during the rest part of the year!;) 
- And one fashion tip: now it's absolutely the best time to wear all possible and impossible hats, caps and scarves! It protects your hair and makes stylish person from u!:)

I know u're beautiful person and u already knew those things, this was just a small reminder!;) Btw I would really like to know is there any special hair product u use (or better say u can swear in its effect,lol) during the summer? Any recommendation, more tips?? Love to hear anything from u!!:)

Sail away into the summer night........

I thought this outfit would look really good on the photos during the night 'cause of all dark shades... Now when it's done I guess I was right!:Dlol There will be more night shots, at least until the warm summer weather allows me...
I wanted to thank u for all your beautiful comments u left me recently, especially on the previous post, I couldn't be more happier!!! Also with my b-day approaching very soon I'm planning to start some new things concerning my blog, let's say to upgrade the whole thing.

Flowers which don't break the bank!!

Nothing but absolutely nothing in this look is branded or expensive! The total value (and yes I mean from head to toe, except from the watch which is vintage and gift) might be less than 50e, but not more for sure! I realized it now when I started to write down all outfit's parts... For me looking good and stylish (or trying, which must be respected as well!!) without breaking the bank- is more inspirational and creative! I love this look- it's vibrant, dynamic and energetic, at least I felt like that wearing it!;) And I love matching background!!
p.s. I have decided to post more frequently, every second or third day (as I promised it before)... so drop by from time to time to check what's new!;)

Lovely Chartreuse-> GlamFabInspiration + Glam Chameleon Jewelry

Chartreuse is a color exactly halfway between green and yellow, mostly considered to be pale apple-green shade. It got its name from very famous French liqueurs (18 and 19th century) called green and yellow chartreuse. Combination with pink color (pale and stronger shades as well) gives very fresh, clean, romantic and lively touch to everything- from clothes, over accessories until decorating and interior design moments.
Do u like this color? I hope u'll enjoy in my small collages... HAVE A WONDERFUL MIDDLE OF THE WEEK!! kisses
Note: Glam Chameleon Jewelry as inspiration

Sunny White

Middle of August.... it's so hoooot here, but I don't complain! August is my favorite month, but somehow every year I work during the whole August so I can not enjoy in each day as I want. Still I'm finding my own ways to stay on the track... At least I have more and more inspiration when it comes to my looks and outfits, and I have even started to think about my holidays' outfits in September (pssst I won't say anything now about destination, it's a small secret!)!
Tomorrow I'm going with my mum to ThessalonĂ­ki (9am-5pm), my most adored city in Greece (I could move there immediately if somebody asks me), for a _____ (what?)- SHOPPING!!:) August/ summer sales, hmm I'm thinking-> paradise for the eyes and rehab for my soul! I'm thrilled 'cause I know even if I don't take anything I'll feel good just for being there, walking a lot and taking some pictures!! In the next post u'll know what happened!!;)

Palazzo-> GlamFabInspiration + Glam Chameleon Jewelry

Inspiration for this post was one of my favorite perfumes, Fendi Palazzo. The iconic and legendary Vogue's September issue (2007, lucky to have it in my Vogue collection) turned out to be "fatal" for me. The moment I opened the "smelly" page with this perfume was the moment I felt like I was opening golden and heavy door of some beautiful baroque palace and entering in the world of richness, luxury and royal life. Just like I belong there, complete transcendence in only one second...
Palazzo has woody and floral composition. The base is made of patchouli, Guaiac wood and warm sandal wood. Notes of mandarin and bergamot, jasmine and orange blossom, Turkish and Bulgarian rose give that feminine and seductive touch. On my skin it leaves sophisticated and elegant, extraordinary, classy and refined smell. From the moment I first tried the perfume I knew I had to have it, it was constantly on my mind. But it was hard to find, u could only buy it abroad. Thanks to my boyfriend I have it now- it was his New year's present!:)
p.s. Addition to this post are Venice necklaces (combinations of semi-precious stones and Swarovski crystals) from my Glam Chameleon Jewelry line...

Who do u think u see???!!

Recently I really ADORE playing with photos (especially making the collages and similar)!! These pics I took one night (actually my boyfriend was a photographer, as always), before going out, but 'cause of the light in the house they didn't turn out to be like I wanted soooo I experimented with them a bit...  I like to think I saved this outfit post from deleting!:)lol
As many of u already know currently I'm living in the other place in Greece, Paralia Katherini. My mum came to visit me two days ago, she'll stay here for 10 days so I'm separating my time to do the daily job and to spend some quality moments with her! Until now I'm managing this very good!:)

Snake in the Port

Oh boy what is what here?? I'm wearing a mixture- vintage and modern/new items, branded and 1e ones... but it makes a sense at the end, don't u think?;) I still don't care if some fashion thing I own is signed by designer/high street house or it costs even less than 1e. As long as it gets my full attention and as long as I like  visually what I see- I go for that, point, conversation finished!!
My favorite item here (along with that one "pink thing" on the pics, btw branded one & mine, lol) are my sandals! Blue/green snake skin print on the nude base, L O V E them-> adored part of my shoe collection, ever growing one!!!
