The Fabulous Greek Islands (guest post)

Mykonos

I love to write about Greece, about all the places I visit, the hotels where I stay, and with a big pleasure I share the pictures on the blog. But equally I like to read what others think about this Mediterranean country, which every year attracts a huge number of tourists from different parts of the world. Moreover as a former travel worker and tour guide I'm always more than interested in the offers of travel agencies connected with sunny Greece...
That's way I'm glad to introduce you today my first "guest" on the blog!:) Read below how one travel agency see Greece, with the addition of my photos...:)
...

Volim da pisem o Grckoj, o svim mestima koja obilazim, o hotelima u kojima odsedam, i sa zadovoljstvom delim na blogu slike sa ovih prostora. Ali podjednako volim i da citam sta drugi misle o ovoj mediteranskoj zemlji koja iz godine u godinu privlaci ogroman broj turista iz razlicitih delova sveta. Sta vise kao bivsi turisticki radnik i vodic uvek sam i vise nego zainteresovana za ponude turistickih agencija vezane za suncanu Grcku...
Zato mi je drago sto vam danas predstavljam svog prvog "gosta" na blogu!:) U nastavku procitajte kako jedna turisticka agencija vidi Grcku, uz dodatak mojih fotografija...:)
p.s. Tekst je na engleskom jeziku, za prevod na srpski potrazite pomoc Google prevodioca koji se nalazi na desnoj strani sidebar-a...

SANTORINI Instagram

Before our trip, I suggested that this time we will visit two islands. First was Ios, and the second one was our favorite Santorini!:) However the last time we were in Santorini was two summers ago (as we chose to visit Mykonos last year) and this year we noticed a big difference that we frankly didn't like... Santorini is a beautiful island, yet its soul was always comprised of the people who visit it. The atmosphere in the air and the energy that tourists carry always give that unique mark to any place. But as the composition of the people who visit the island drastically changed in the last two years, that specific energy started to gradually fade... Luckily we spent only two days on the island, so I still carry nice memories...
These pictures I was sharing on my Instagram, and more about the hotel where we stayed and our activities there you'll read in the coming period... 
...

Pre naseg putovanja, nagovestila sam da cemo ovoga puta posetiti dva ostrva. Prvo je Ios, a drugo je nama omiljeni Santorini!:) Elem zadnji put smo bili na Santoriniju pre dva leta (jer smo se prosle godine odlucili za Mikonos) i ove godine smo uocili veliku razliku koja nam iskreno receno nije prijala... Santorini je predivno ostrvo, ali su njegovu dusu uvek cinili ljudi koja ga posecuju. Ta atmosfera u vazduhu i energija koju turisti nose uvek daju unikatni pecat bilo kom mestu. Ali kako se sastav ljudi koji posecuju ostrvo drasticno promenio u poslednje dve godine, i ta specificna energija je polako pocela da bledi... Srecom proveli smo samo dva dana na ostrvu, te i dalje nosim lepe uspomene...
Ove slike sam podelila preko Instagrama, a vise o hotelu u kojem smo boravili i nasim aktivnostima citacete u narednom periodu...

Morning loves, I'm back, finally!:) I missed the blog so much, I missed everyday posting, yet I gave myself the right to completely enjoy my "blog break". The result is a bunch of a new material, a creative boom and charged batteries!
Although I wasn't posting anything on the blog, I was active on Instagram (as I promised), so today you can see a recapitulation of all the pictures from Ios that I shared there. And much more about the vacation you will hear in the coming days!;)
...

Jutro moje ljubavi, vratila sam se, konacno!!:) Nedostajao mi je moj blog, nedostajalo mi je svakodnevno spremanje postova, ali sam dala sebi pravo na potpuni "blog odmor". Rezultat je: gomila novog materijala, kreativni uzlet i napunjene baterije! 
Iako nisam nista postavljala na blogu, ipak sam bila aktivna na Instagramu (kao sto sam i obecala), tako da danas mozete videti rekapitulaciju svih slika sa Iosa koje sam tamo podelila. A vise o samom odmoru cucete narednih dana!;)

OOTD: Blue-green kaftan tunic

Outfit: Blue kaftan tunic. Outfit of the day. Best summer looks. Pink Woman tunic. Dita "Supa-dupa" sunglasses. Bershka skirt. Floral wedges.

I wanted to leave all my printed summer tunics for the seaside, but mild changes in temperature these days lured me to wear one of them before the summer holidays. This time the choice fell on the loose blue-green kaftan blouse from the brand Pink Woman, which I paired with new Dita "Supa-dupa" sunglasses and floral platforms. In order to balance the prints (though at first glance completely matching ones), I added Bershka's simple black mini skirt and black bucket purse...
This wasn't the last summer outfit that you'll see on the blog, but the next ones will be marked with the sea vibe, and of course a visible difference in the color of my tan!:)
...

Zelela sam da sve printovane letnje tunike ostavim za more, ali blaga promena u temperaturi ovih dana me je namamila da jednu od njih ipak obucem pre godisnjeg odmora. Ovoga puta izbor je pao na leprsavu plavo-zelenkastu kaftan bluzu brenda Pink Woman, koju sam uparila sa novim Dita "Supa-dupa" naocarima za sunce i floralnim platformama. Kako bi izbalansirala (iako na prvi pogled potpuno slagajuce) printove, dodala sam jednostanu Bershka crnu mini suknjicu i crnu "bucket" tasnicu...
Ovo nije poslednji letnji outfit koji cete videti na blogu, ali naredni ce biti obelezeni morskom atmosferom, i naravno vidnom razlikom u boji mog tena!:)

Victoria's Secret Fabulous body mist

Victoria's Secret Fabulous body mist. Victoria's Secret Fabulous.

Sexy, fresh, vibrant! That's how absolutely every Victoria's Secret body mist smells (at least those ten that I have)! And "accidentally" the name of the mist "Fabulous" is a part of the name of my "Glam Fab Happy" blog!:) 
"Fabulous" fragrance line is a combination of light floral and juicy fruit notes. At the top of the pyramid are currant, apricot nectar, mandarin and violet leaves. Middle notes are the mix of osmanthus flower, pink freesia and jasmine, while the base is a harmonious blend of Australian sandalwood, musk, benzoin and vanilla whipper cream! Freshness of a summer day in a girly pink bottle!
...

Sexy, sveze, vibrirajuce! Tako mirise apsolutno svaka Victoria's Secret vodica za telo (barem onih desetak koje ja imam)! I eto "slucajno" je naziv vodice "Fabulous" deo naziva i mog "Glam Fab Happy" bloga!:)
"Fabulous" mirisna linija je kombinacija lakih cvetnih i socnih vocnih nota. Na vrhu mirisne piramide se nalaze ribizla, nektar kajsije, mandarina i lisce ljubicice. Srednje note su mix osmantus cveta, pink frezije i jasmina, dok je baza sklad australijske sandalovine, mosusa, benzoina i slaga od vanile! Svezina letnjeg dana u girly pink bocici!

Budget makeup: 1€, 2€, 3€!!!

Budget makeup haul. Best budget makeup. Sixteen cosmetics pink lipstick.

Yes, definitely there are still some hidden small shops where you can find very good makeup products for less than 3 euros, you just need to research a bit more.:) During this summer (and completely by accident) I stumbled upon a local shop in the center of Thessaloniki, where (besides purses and accessories) they were selling cheap makeup products both from the Greek and foreign brands. I mainly chose the products from the Greek brands, 'cause now I live in Greece so I thought it would be nice to support the economy of this country!:D
Joking aside, almost everything I've bought has a really solid quality considering the price. Lipsticks are well pigmented, quite long-lasting, and the same goes for the shiny shadows. Of course there were countless other shades and tones, but I picked the shades that I was currently missing...
Over the next few days I'm gonna need to go again to Thessaloniki, so if I find something interesting, be sure I'll share here on the blog! Enjoy today and refresh your life with some colors!;)
...

Da, definitivno i dalje postoje neke skrivene radnjice gde se mogu pronaci sasvim dobri make-up proizvodi za manje od 3 evra, samo treba malo vise istraziti.:) Tako sam ja tokom ovog leta (i potpuno slucajno) nabasala na jednu lokalnu radnjicu u centru Soluna, gde su se (pored tasnica i aksesoara) prodavali i jeftini make-up proizvodi grckih ali i stranih proizvodjaca. Ja sam mahom izabrala proizvode grckih brendova, jer eto zivim u Grckoj pa rekoh da podrzim ekonomiju ove zemlje!:D
Salu na stranu, gotovo sve sto sam kupila je zaista solidnog kvaliteta s obzirom na cenu. Ruzevi su dobro pigmentisani, prilicno postojani, sto mogu reci i za svetlucave senke. Naravno postojalo je bezbroj drugih nijansi i tonova, ali ja sam se odlucila za one nijanse koje su mi trenutno nedostajale...
Narednih dana me ceka ponovni odlazak u Solun, pa ako opet nadjem nesto interesantno, svakako cu podeliti ovde na blogu! Uzivajte u danasnjem danu, i osvezite vas zivot bojama!;)

OOTD: White dress for Summer's end

Outfits with white dress. Summer white dress. Louis Vuitton purse. Avon flats. Avon jewelry. Outfit of the day. OOTD.

If we take the calendar into consideration, we can freely say that the end of the summer is almost here... Yet regardless of the date, for me the summer doesn't end until I get back from my holidays, which (you might already assume) will happen during the month of September... That's why I still "live" the summer (although my tan indicates the opposite, because there was almost no tanning), and without remorse I dress summer dresses and colors, such as, for example, the white dress that I'm wearing in today's outfit post...
...

Kalendarski mozemo reci da je kraj leta... Elem bez obzira na datum, za mene se leto ne zavrsava sve dok se ne vratim sa mora i godisnjeg odmora, sto ce se (vec mozete pretpostaviti) dogoditi tokom septembra meseca... Te ja i dalje "zivim" leto (iako moj ten pokazuje suprotno, jer skoro nije bilo suncanja), i bez grize savesti oblacim letnje haljinice i boje, kao sto je na primer bela haljina koju nosim u danasnjem outfit postu...

Avon jewelry: Delicate Shine (ring & necklace)

Avon jewelry- Delicate Shine ring & necklace. Beautiful Avon jewelry/jewellery.

When it comes to jewelry, we can say I'm a lucky girl 'cause I have a huge choice available, absolutely every day... There's jewelry that I design myself, then the one that I'm buying, and then the one that I'm getting as a gift. And exactly jewelry happens to be very often the initial idea for creating some outfit as well as the make-up look. Sometimes I'm inspired by the color of the stones, sometimes it's the form of a necklace or earrings, sometimes it's simplicity or complexity of a certain piece...
Avon's "Delicate Shine" set (necklace and ring) got me at first glance with its delicacy, femininity, gentleness of the oval stones in a light purple color that match perfectly with a silver metal base... And this is my jewelry choice for the next outfit post which will up on the blog tomorrow!:)
...

Kada je nakit u pitanju, mogu reci da sam srecnica jer mi je veliki izbor na raspolaganju, apsolutno svakog dana... Tu je nakit koji sama kreiram, zatim ono sto sama kupujem, i potom ono sto dobijam na poklon. I upravo je nakit vrlo cesto pocetna ideja za kreiranje nekog outfita kao i make-up look-a. Nekad sam inspirisana bojom kamenja, nekad je to oblik ogrlice ili mindjuse, nekad je to jednostavnost ili kompleksnost odredjenog komada...
Avonov "Delicate Shine" set (ogrlica i prsten) me je osvojio na prvi pogled svojom delikatnoscu, zenstvenoscu, neznoscu ovalnog kamenja svetlo ljubicaste boje koji se savrseno slazu sa srebrnom metalnom osnovom... I ovo je moj izbor nakita za sledeci outfit post koji cete sutra videti na blogu!:)

Acheloides Hotel (Kalliroi) :: inside look + video

Acheloides Hotel, Kalliroi, Kalambaka, Aspropotamos, Trikala. Αχελωίδες ξενοδοχείο, Καλλιρρόη. Acheloides hotel video.

The name of the hotel "Acheloides" comes from the mythical mermaids or better to say nymphs, who were born in the river of this region called Acheloos (also Achelous, Aspropotamos). Three sirens were very close to Persephone (the daughter of the god Zeus and Demeter; wife of Hades; queen of the underworld), and when the god of the underworld Hades kidnapped Persephone they turned into birds in order to find their loved friend...
The interior of the hotel is completely in the harmony with the external appearance. Rooms with wooden flooring that nostalgically creak when walking, traditional wooden furniture, fireplaces, hand-woven carpets and rugs give a true antique look, and the slightly dimmed lighting in the entire hotel adds to the romance and mysticism...
...

Ime hotela "Acheloides" potice od mitskih sirena iliti nimfi koje su rodjene u reci ovog predela koja se zove Acheloos (takodje Achelous, Aspropotamos). Tri sirene su bile vrlo bliske Persefoni (cerka boga Zevsa i Demetre; zena Hada; kraljica podzemnog sveta), i kada je bog podzemlja Had oteo Persefonu pretvorile su se u ptice ne bi li lakse pronasle svoju obozavanu prijateljicu...
Unutrasnjost hotela je u potpunom skladu sa spoljasnjim izgledom koji ste mogli videti u prethodnom postu. Sobe sa drvenim podovima koji nostalgicno skripucu kada hodate, tradicionalan drveni namestaj, kamini, rucno tkani tepisi i cilimi daju pravi starinski izgled, a prigusenost svetla u citavom hotelu pridodaje romantici i misticnosti...

Acheloides Hotel (Kalliroi) :: outside look

Acheloides Hotel, Kalliroi, Kalambaka, Aspropotamos, Trikala. Αχελωίδες ξενοδοχείο, Καλλιρρόη.

Surrounded by high mountains and hidden among the greenery of trees in the place Kalliroi, at 1040 m. of the altitude is a hotel called "Acheloides". It consists of three main buildings, and has a total of 24 rooms and 6 suites. Rustic atmosphere that emanates from this hotel is the result of a traditional building style which uses mainly wood and stone, and it is typical for this mountainous region...
In mid-August we sought the refuge from a daily work in the shop and the summer heat, exactly in this hotel. Although we only spent there one entire day (two nights)- that was enough to breathe some fresh mountain air and to recharge our batteries. And also to catch a bit of sun by the pool, because the sea we'll "see" us now in September!:)
Today I'm showing you the outer appearance of the hotel, and in the next post you can see its inner appearance...
...

Okruzen visokim planinama i skriven medju zelenilom drveca u mestu Kalliroi, na 1040 m. nadmorske visine nalazi se hotel "Acheloides". Sastoji se od tri glavne zgrade, i ukupno ima 24 sobe i 6 apartmana. Rusticna atmosfera kojom odise ovaj hotel je rezultat tradicionalne gradnje od drveta i kamena koja je tipicna za ovaj planinski predeo...
Sredinom avgusta potrazili smo beg od svakodnevnog rada u radnji i letnje vrucine bas u ovom hotelu. Iako smo otisli samo na jedan citav dan (dva nocenja), i to je bilo dovoljno da se nadisemo svezeg planinskog vazduha i da napunimo baterije. A ujedno i da malo pocrnimo pored bazena, jer ce nas more tek sada u septembru videti!:)
Danas vam prikazujem spoljasni izgled hotela, a u sledecem postu mozete videti i njegov unutrasnji izgled...

OOTD: Fleur de la passion

OOTD: Fleur de la passion. Best summer looks. Derpouli top. Sequined sneakers. H&M purse. Fashion and style blogger.

Thanks to the low temperature drop, I finally got the chance to wear my new sequined sneakers. But the main inspiration for today's outfit was this sweet white shirt with floral print and pink bow on the back. I paired it with a black maxi skirt, silver jewelry and color-block purse in silver and coral color. The result is a casual outfit suitable for every day and particularly for this transitional period... 
...

Zahvaljujuci slabom padu temperature, ja konacno dobih priliku da obujem svoje nove sljokicave patikice. Ali glavna inspiracija za danasnji outfit je bila ova preslatka bela majica sa cvetnim printom i roze masnicom na ledjima. Uparila sam to sa crnom maxi suknjom, nakitom u srebrnoj nijansi i color-block tasnicom u srebrnoj i koralnoj boji. Rezultat je kezual outfit pogodan za svaki dan i narocito za ovaj prelazni period...

Birthday girl :))))

Birthday girl. First september birthday. 01.09. birthday.

Yesterday, on 1st of September, was my birthday... I'm slowly approaching my 30's, and I still don't have any problem with that (ask me again in a year or two, lol).:) You're as young as you feel from the inside, although the years are flying and passing so quickly...
Like every year, I am so grateful for the huge number of messages and greetings that were sent to me via fb. Now it's time to return the courtesy and thank everyone individually, because it's the least I can do...<3
...

Juce je bio moj rodjendan, prvog septembra... Priblizavamo se polako 30-oj, i jos uvek nemam problema sa tim (pitajte me za godinu, dve, haha).:) Svako je mlad onoliko koliko se oseca, iako godine lete i prolaze tako brzo...
Kao i svake godine, zahvalna sam na ogromnom broju poruka i cestitki koje su mi poslate preko fb. Sad je vreme da uzvratim ljubaznost i da se zahvalim svima pojedinacno, jer to je najmanje sto mogu da ucinim...<3
