New in my Beauty World


Recently I have started again to pile on different beauty products, make up things, cosmetics for the face and body, hair products. In the case of some other person this might be the alarming signal (for cutting the budget) but in my case it's more than good- it means I'm returning to my "beauty roots"! I'm a little bit of a make-up junkie (proudly announcing that!). Until few years ago I was complete maniac, collecting and using everything and anything- lipsticks, glosses, eye shadows, powders, nail colors, blushes and bronzers.... Then in one feng-shui attack I threw away more than a half. But here I am, after a long time I just want to be a girly girl again! To have pretty make up, lovely colored nails, healthy hair and great skin condition. Soon on my blog you'll hear and see more about make up world and some beauty tricks!

Milan Fashion Week Fall 2012 rtw/ part I


Glam & fab solution for finishing this week in a beautiful way is (yes, you guessed right) -> Milan FW!! Apparently the only effective solution... Passing through those collections helped me to color my cloudy days; making the collages and selections even more. Iceberg, Gucci, Prada, Alberta Ferretti, Moschino, Fendi, T by Alexander Wang, Luisa Beccaria, Versace, MaxMara and Blumarine. This is my fashion pill, mixture of favorite looks (read: ingredients!). But be careful, maybe my pill is not appropriate for you, and yet maybe it can be your next cure!;)

new look: "Leopard's Traveling"


Cozy, comfy and warm, this was great outfit idea for traveling (as I already mentioned before- by bus, and for more than 11 hours). Yet I wanted some cheerful addition, cute vibrant orange beanie turned out to be a good choice. Just one colorful detail can influence your mood, in a positive way. I noticed, most probably you did as well, that this kind of the winter hat became quite popular again. I dig out mine accidentally, it was in the closet for few years and never was worn. As soon as I go back to Greece, one of the primary things that has to be done is- closet organizing as well as huge reinventing...

One more delicious street style inspiration straight from the London's fashionable streets.

Real people, real fashion! Share your thoughts with me!

Good morning, I hope you're doing well and slowly getting ready for the upcoming weekend!!

Not so big selection but for my taste very pretty one! Burberry Prorsum, Donna Karan, Mulberry, Antonio Berardi, David Koma, Marios Schwab and Erdem

Glow After Dark-> GlamFabInspiration + Glam Chameleon Jewelry


Night darkness... Black, silver, gray, all obscure shades in between... This time they're not synonyms for the dark side of the human soul. Today they mean luxury, mystery, lifestyle, elegance, beauty, glow, romance... We all love those colors. Perfect for day, magnificent for night... When we don't know what to wear- black is always first and eventually the best choice. This winter gray has been favorite "new neutral" among fashionistas, and according to fall 2012 fashion week collections it'll continue its glory in the next cold season. And what about silver and metallic, futuristic and trendy yet glam tones?
I hope you will like my collages and inspiration for this day!

new look: "Petrol Blue + Brick Orange"


I took these photos just before I left Greece (few days ago). The snow melted down, it was warmer (at that point!!) so there was no need to put my coat, this knitted faux-fur vest worked well. I was always attracted to petrol blue + brick orange color combination (warm and deep), that idea was stuck in my mind for any winterish outfit. Can you imagine the thrill when I found those lovely tights in Tally Weijl? Excellent timing!

Glam & Fab Week (13.02.-19.02.)


Hello my pretty people, I'm writing you from Serbia. I came early this morning, and I think I'll use whole this day for rehabilitation. I wasn't sleeping good for the last three days (waking up before 6am each morning), I almost fainted in the house 2 days ago, so traveling with the bus for more than 9 hours (+ 3 with the car) wasn't such a pleasure this time... However I promised the post today, so here are the pieces of this week- what I was reading, new things in the closet and something else...

For the first time in the last two weeks it was sunny all day! It looked so enchanting! I had some time before noon, so I happily decided to take a walk... After almost two hours I came home, frozen!!! Yes it was sunny but soooooo chilly! Today it's cloudy again... 
During this weekend I'll be on my way to Serbia, where I'll spend two weeks (you'll hear more about my planned activities). It's cold here in Greece, it's cold there, so it's the same!

Happy Valentine's Day


Happy Valentine's Day my cupcakes!!!:) We all have big reasons to celebrate love today!
If you have somebody next to you who makes your life prettier and meaningful, you are blessed. With or without presents, dedicate this day to yourselves and remember all things that connected you from the beginning. That first look, touch, kiss... Dinner (or simply a drink) at the restaurant or at your own place, with romantic candles & ballads or loud music & lights, just the two of you or in some company, as you wish! I suppose some kind of "dessert" is included!;)
Even if you are single you should certainly celebrate this day (oh how many times I spent wonderful Valentine's day completely alone!!). Show some love and respect to yourself, indulge in all hedonistic things that make you happy. Put that new pretty dress and expensive piece of jewelry, paint your nails and lips in red, don't forget that sensual and seductive perfume. Make some nice dinner or order something exotic, sip a glass of tasteful wine, and enjoy in your own company while reading your favorite book, checking new fashion magazines, watching love movie or SATC marathon. If you don't love yourself nobody will!!
Main source of the Universal Love is nowhere else but inside each of us, we just need to open our hearts without fear, and to believe we deserve all gifts we shall receive!!

new look: *Red As Love*


Red means love, passion and joy... Valentine's day is tomorrow, and most of you will mark that day with loved ones. Inspired by all pretty reddish/pinkish things I'm seeing everywhere these days, and moved by pure desire to celebrate my new state of mind, I picked to wear something in happy red color during this weekend. Not even cold, rainy and humid weather could affect my mood- mood of serenity and love, peace and new zest for life...

Glam & Fab Week (06.02.-12.02.)


Good morning to everybody. I hope you slept well and you're perfectly ready to enjoy this Sunday.
I'm sitting in my home office with the laptop, writing this post and looking outside at all white surfaces covered with the snow. I woke up at 6am, again, with no reason, but until now I learned to accept each day like that and make the best possible out of it.
This week somehow I ran out of the energy, felt exhausted and started to make some mistakes. That's why I have decided to isolate myself a bit, for three-four days, to work on my mind and find some balance. Searching for my truth, connecting with my source and just letting my spirit and body to do whatever it feels right at some point. For example enjoying in those small girly things and activities that are quite helpful each time you feel a bit down: doing face and body treatments, walking, manicure, meditating, reading book and fashion magazines, taking some pretty pictures, cleaning my closet... I am still in the search but I'm more closer to my center and more connected with the Universe...

Hello my lovely people. As you already know NY fashion week has officially started, and this is the selection of my favorite runway looks concerning its beginning. Even dough it would be much better to follow everything from the first row, this year I gave an assignment to myself to take my time and methodically check all collections during fashion weeks, which means I'll be doing that whole this month (enthusiastically looking forward!!). Chadwick Bell,  M. Patmos, Douglas Hannant Pink, TSE, Costello Tagliapietra & Juan Carlos Obando. Those are my picks, and as always I'm extremely curious to hear your thoughts!!!

Editorial inspiration & blog awards


I had to showcase this dreamy and gorgoeus editorial from February issue of L'officiel Paris. Model Luisa Bianchin completely revived 50's retro glam. Perfectly styled spring collections, vamp make up, enviable tan and flirty curls give me one more reason to cherish warm weather...

new look: *Lilac Snow*


Now you can finally see some snow on my photos! This was at the same beginning (pics were taken few days ago). The day after average layer of the snow was around half meter, yesterday rained and melted it, but in 2,3 days it'll start to snow again... So you'll see more winterish white dust on my blog (for now you can see it on my head!lol)...:)
Honestly I don't sleep so good in the past few days, I wake up between 6 and 7am (go to bed after 1am), but it doesn't matter 'cause I have started again to do something creative and pretty... Handcrafting makes me happy, I'm always on the go! More about new projects soon!;)

new look: *Blue & Green Preppy Plaids*


Those pictures I took few days ago, and if I show you the current situation outside (or just the day after they were taken) you simply wouldn't believe me... Everything is completely white, covered with huge amount of the show, not to mention freezing factor. Yesterday I opened the balcony door, smell the air (literally the only part you could see outside was my nose!!) and shut the door in the panic. Today is another scenario- I must to go out cause two days in the house are enough!
While putting this outfit I was obsessed with total blue and green combination. I started with cute plaid skirt, completely matching tights and boots. Then I picked this vintage striped shirt (for so many years is in my closet) to add some fresh twist and over it simple top as a vest in navy color... So what do you think- blue + green, stripes + plaids? Yes or no?

Crete/ last day


This was it, the last day on Crete. As well the only day G and I took the advantage of and spend some time in the city (Heraklion). After the breakfast we packed our suitcases, went to the center where we were checking some shops and interesting spots (we're not "all day in the coffee shop persons", never), and then the best thing- stroll next to the beach!! It's unbelievable that immediately after we finished and were ready to go to the exhibition, it started to be cloudy and rainy!! We took the plane the same evening at 8pm, came in Athens, check in the hotel, sleep over and the next day we were on the road- coming back home... Even if I didn't have any spare time to enjoy outside during my days there, it was really nice to know the weather is warmer and that the first thing I see in the morning when I open my eyes- is the sea!!
