It's blush time

 With the temperature going up and the heat almost unbearable, I find myself using less products on my face day by day. I spent June with only sunscreen, lipstick and blush on and believe me, it's more than enough when it's 37-39 degrees Celsius out there (that is 98-102 Fahrenheit).

Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask - Review

My love and addiction on face masks is well known here on my blog. I tried a million of face masks and that also includes sheet masks that made their appearance to the west world a few years back, but I am slowly getting to know and try these products.

4 things I am excited for this summer and things you can do

Hair gets lighter,
Skin gets darker,
Water gets warmer,
Drinks get cooler,
Music gets louder,
Nights get longer,
Life gets better.

Let's talk about serums

Hello my lovely ladies. I am back with a skincare post and today I talk about four serums I am currently using in my skincare routine. Serums are well known to the beauty world as powerful moisturizers that deliver active ingredients to the skin, that is why serums are used after cleansing and toning the skin.

My love for maxi dresses

Hello my lovely ladies! Today I have two looks I wear a lot these days and I am talking about maxi dresses. They are comfortable, stylish and in my case, maxi dresses are perfect to wear on days when you forgot to shave your legs the night before and you cannot go out wearing a mini dress (don't judge me!).

5 products from Essence I have been enjoying

I talked about Essence many times on my blog and how much I love their products. Essence is a European brand that offers makeup products in affordable prices and I don't believe there is a makeup addict out there that they haven't tried at least one of their products. They have some hits and misses of course, since not all products are wonderful and cannot be compared with other more expensive brands but there are some hidden gems in their collections. 

5 ways to use a scarf in an outfit

How can someone upgrade any simple outfit, you ask? But with adding the right accessories, of course. I love to add a statement necklace on top of a white t-shirt or wear a pair of statement earrings. I also love scarves and I have a ridiculous large amount of scarves. Using scarves in an outfit is the perfect way to make any simple outfit stand out, more special and unique. 

Nivea Visage Aqua Sensation Refreshing Cleansing Gel

On a recent trip to the shops I noticed Nivea had 40% off their products and I picked up a few new products I haven't tried before and the Nivea Aqua Sensation Refreshing Cleansing Gel is one of them.

Four ways to style a white off shoulder top

Hello my beautiful ladies! I am back with another fashion post today, I love fashion and I love clothes and I would love to incorporate more fashion related posts here, so here we are.  The sun is out so it is a beautiful day to be outside and take some pictures, so I grabbed my coffee, Tyrion, my phone and tripod and I headed out! And it is indeed a lovely day outside.

Dresses & earrings for summer

Another wishlist? Yesss, because I cannot get enough of summer dresses. Summer is here my beautiful ladies and the heat is real. I put my jeans at the back of my closet (see you  in October my lovely jeans) and dresses are out. It's the only thing I wear in summer since they are flowy and airy and so comfortable to wear. I love all kinds of dresses; long, short, print, floral, striped, long sleeve mini dress, you name it. 

Sheet masks - what I have been using this month

I cannot remember who recommended sheet masks to me since it was a long time ago, but I would like to say a big thank you to that person. I have been using them regularly and they are a part of my skincare routine and I am hooked, it is my favourite product to use after a stressful day and my favourite subject to talk about and also, read posts with recommendations on what to try next. 

Summer, beach, new swimsuit

A long time ago, I was curious about the history of swimwear and how and why women started to wear a swimming suit. And after watching a documentary about the history of clothing and how people used to dress throughout the years, I looked more into it and found some interesting information.

When life gives you lemons, wear them!

Hello my beautiful friends, how are you today? I am doing great and enjoying these lovely summer (and hot) days! 

Sun, beach, sunscreen

You are familiar with the fact that we must use a sunscreen 365 days a year, right? That said, I never used to bother using one before hitting thirty and I didn't bother protect my skin from the damaging rays of the sun. In Cyprus, we have an intense summer with extremely hot days and these days usually last 6-7 months. So yes, the summer here is extended and I feel I must protect my skin more.

Royal Rose Eye Cream

Hello beautiful girls! I am back with a review on the most amazing eye cream, you know I love rose products and I have been using lots lately and the Royal Rose Eye Cream is my most precious skincare product I am currently using.

L'oreal Paris Infallible Mega Matte Lip Gloss

You know you came here for another lipstick post, right?? The L'oreal Paris Infallible Mega Matte Lip Gloss is the newest member to my *lipstick* family and these two beautiful tubes won a special place at the top of my dresser because they are just amazing.

L'OREAL Mythic Oil Sparkling Shampoo


I am sucker for a nice packaging. I am a sucker for a nice packaging plus glitter. Anything that has glitter in it, I want it. And I must admit I reached and picked this product from the shelf  and put it in my cart before I even read the label and see what this product is.  So today I will be talking about the L'oreal Mythic Oil Sparkling Shampoo

Spring Lipsticks

Hello my beautiful girls!! How are you today??? I am back with another lipstick post, you know lipsticks are my obsession and I love to use a different one each day. Since the weather is changing and getting warmer, our lipstick preferences change too and I like to switch things up and use more neutral shades and pinks.

Korean products wishlist

Today I have a different post to share. Ι know everyone loves korean skincare products and there are so many brands, products and shops to choose from. I was introduced to them a few months ago and I tried some really good products that made my skin glow, and of course, I tried the famous 10-step korean skincare routine to see what all the fuss is about and let me tell you, I am really really impressed!  Today I would like to share my wishlist of some products I intend to buy.

Ikarov Rose Water Review

Using rose water to cleanse and refresh skin has been well known for centuries. The famous for her beauty routine Cleopatra, used milk and rose petals in her bath to smooth and soften her skin, both ingredients popular for their nourishing and soothing effects on skin.

Going on holiday? These are the clothes you need

Have you planned your summer holidays yet?? I haven't but I hope I get to book tickets and hotel later this month.  Last year I travelled to Crete twice, in June with my fiance and in August with my parents and it was amazing. I love Crete, I visited this beautiful island before and every time I get to discover other beautiful places and beaches. And I don't mind travelling there again this year but we will see since i have some other options in mind.

Is it summer yet?

My love for dresses has been discussed here enough times to persuade you that I love dresses. More specific, floral and colourful dresses.

YesStyle Beauty Box - Sweet Spring Makeup Kit

After my little disappointment on the last YesStyle Beauty Box I received last month to review, I decided to sign up again and I was lucky to get chosen to review the spring beauty box as well. I started to explore Korean beauty and products not long ago and I am a huge fan and this beauty box has some Korean makeup products too so it would be great to try these too. So let's see what's in the box!

Favourite product of the month - W7 Butter Kiss Lipstick in Red Tulip

The W7 craziness continues! I swear, I want every single item from W7 cosmetics because 1) they are really affordable and you can justify to spend 3-4 euros on an impulse buy and 2) their lipsticks are soo good!

Three mascaras from W7 Cosmetics

Hello lovely girls!! How are you today? I am back with my most favourite post for this month and I wanted to sit down and write about these three W7 mascaras for so long (to be honest, I started writing this post as soon as I tried these mascaras since I wanted to write every single detail about their performance but I did not finish it) but I wanted to provide swatch pictures too, and I just couldn't do it. It was impossible. Girl, the struggle is real, I cannot capture my lashes correctly to show how a mascara performs to save my life.

Technic Mega Bronze Quad Palette

I discovered Technic cosmetics last year and I recently purchased three of their amazing highlighters. If you haven't checked these highlighters out, you really should. They are pigmented and affordable and I also purchased the pink sparkle highlighter as well that was released this month and was featured in the Technic instagram account. A girl needs some sparkle in her life!!

Two lipsticks I must wear more - Wet 'n' Wild Cherry Picking & Stoplight Red

If you are a lipstick hoarder like me, you must fully understand my pain. I have so many lipsticks but I only wear the same 5-6 I really love and put aside really good ones and forget I have them. I usually take photos for a blog post, put them away and then forget all about them.

I purchased these two Wet 'n' Wild lipsticks a long time ago and I only used them once or twice so I put both of them in my makeup bag and I plan to wear them every day in rotation for a week or two.

Need firmer and smoother skin? Try the Rosa Pretiosa Natural Rejuvenating Serum from Natural Cosmetic

When it comes to skincare, I like to incorporate a large amount of products to my daily routine. And I tried almost everything; creams, serums, essences, toners, oils, the list is endless and from the minute you start taking care of your skin and have a regular routine, you are hooked.

Face masks - what I have been using lately

Face masks are an important step to my skincare routine. They are no longer a luxury but a necessity. I use a face mask 3-4 times a week (sometimes more) and my skin feels so good after I use one, feels and looks healthier, has a nice glow and gets all the great ingredients a mask has to offer. 

Sunday is for relaxation

Keep Calm and relax, it's Sunday!

Sunday is my second favourite day of the week, I love Saturdays best but I always do household, blogging or run errands and usually I don't find time to relax and have some 'me' time. So I promised myself I would have a whole day to relax and do nothing (besides preparing lunch and dinner) and I found many ways to do that.

Milani Runway Lashes Instant Volume Mascara

I found a mascara that I really love. And I don't believe it. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the Milani Runway Lashes Instant Volume Mascara that got me all excited this week.

KIKO Milano Smart Lipstick - 904 Strawberry Pink


If you haven't tried the KIKO Milano lipsticks before, you are missing out. It's been so long since I wanted to try them and I did placed an order a long time ago, but as it happens when you own too many lipsticks, I forgot I had this gem.

I Heart Spring Tag

How is everyone enjoying the spring weather? It's lovely isn't it?

I was tagged but the sweet Kay at Shoes and Glitter blog  to do the Spring Tag. I wasn't familiar with this tag, I only found out about it after reading Kay's post and this tag was originally started by Ingrid Nielsen on Youtube. So today's post is a little different than usual, I love doing tag posts, they are so much fun so here are my answers and I hope you enjoy!

Three W7 pink nude lipsticks to wear now

Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a lovely Friday and I sure am, since I am enjoying a lovely warm weather. Spring is the season when we change our closet, change our makeup routine and of course for us lipstick junkies, re-discover our beautiful pink and nude lipstick shades (or buy new ones!)

 W7 has became one of my favourite brands for affordable lipsticks and there are so many shades to choose from. 

I am welcoming spring with stripes and flowers

Aren't you just happy that it's spring? I must be the happiest girl in the world. As I mentioned (and also complained) in previous posts, I don't enjoy winter at all. I am always cold, my feet need 2+ pairs of socks and I wear too many clothes to handle low temperatures. So yes, I am a happy girl now that the weather is changing, sun is out and the weather is getting warmer.

NYX Professional Makeup Haul & Nicosia Grand Opening Event


 It is always exciting when a new makeup store opens in your city, isn't it? And I am talking about the NYX Professional Makeup store that opened last week and welcomed each and every one of us. 

The new NYX Cosmetics store in Nicosia opened on Friday 17th of March and of course, I had to attend. I wanted to experience this great opening and have the joy of trying all NYX products I have been ordering online for so long and not being able to test them before purchasing. I was thrilled to swatch every lipstick shade (I did!), have a chat with the lovely consultants and talk about new products and also their recommendations.

Makeup I have been using every day

Hello girls! Today I am back with another post and I would like to talk about my current makeup routine and the products I use every morning before I leave the house. I usually don't have more than 10-15 minutes to do my ''perfect makeup'', so my routine is simple and I only use basic products. These are some of my current favourite products I reach for every morning.

YesStyle Beauty Box - Skincare Essentials

Three weeks ago, I received an email from YesStyle and I was happy to read that I was selected to try their YesStyle Beauty Box*. To my surprise, this beauty box arrived exactly two weeks later from the dispatch date which is pretty amazing taking into consideration that any package from an Asian country usually arrives a month later (maybe more) in my country. 

Two blushes - Sleek Coral Blush & Technic Cheek Sculpt in Peachy

What is your favourite makeup product? Like the one you could not live without?

Mine is lipstick. I have a thing for lipsticks and this thing is translated into love, obsession, passion, no matter how you call it, I love lipsticks.

Technic Colour Max Bronzing Eyeshadow Palette

I discovered Technic last year in a local beauty shop that sells Technic and W7 Cosmetics and it has clearly became on of my favourite shops and I am proud to say that I am a frequent visitor. I recently purchased the Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighting Powder and I am obsessed with it.

Essence The Gel Nail Polish

I've talked about Essence before and how much I love their products, especially the amazing formula of their gel nail polishes. I have been collecting their gel polishes since last year and let me tell you, they have the most amazing colours in their collection. 

L'oreal Mythic Oil Milk

loreal mythic oil milk

L'oreal is a brand I trust and use for years and I am always excited when they launch new products. I love to use their hair products - shampoo and masks - but also their oils and leave-in conditioners. 

I love to use oils in general and they are so beneficial for skin and hair. Oils nourish hair and deep condition and when you have thick frizzy hair like me, oils are a great way to tame frizziness. 

Foltene Eyelash & Eyebrow Treatment

Every girl I know that is interested in beauty, blogger or not, wants long lashes. And this multimillionaire beauty industry makes sure all girls have the long and voluminous lashes they want by producing mascaras and eyelash treatments that help eyelashes grow stronger and have more length. 

Products I use to beat the dry winter weather

If you are a regular reader here, you must all know my love for summer and my loath for winter, I complained several times about this terrible cold weather here and if I had my way, I would move to an exotic place that has 365 days of summer.  Winter and me do not fare so well and we will not be friends ever. 

Essence - new products

If you have been following me on instagram you would have notice that I did a little haul on Saturday and I visited a new beauty store that sells products from Essence.  I didn't need anything in particular, I only wanted to try two shades from their matt matt matt collection (02 perfect match and 03 wow effect) but these were not available and I purchased some other lovely goodies from their new collection.

Empties - Cleansers

After two weeks, 25 cups of coffee and 3425259 photos, I finally managed to finish this post. I wrote it two weeks ago and had it ready, but taking photos of these products was such a pain. Cloudy days are a nightmare. I took the first bunch of photos on a Saturday, the second the next day, then I had to do it all over again in the next weekend since the first two bunches were horrible. 

13 signs that indicate you are a beauty addict

Am I the only one that gets excited when it's the end of the month, which means only one thing: payday! And that means I can browse into my favourite websites and finally order all these products and makeup I have been saving in my basket throughout the month! Am I the only one? I don't think so. We all love makeup and we get excited when new products are launched, and I personally love trying new skincare products and face masks.

Essence The False Lashes Mascara - Dramatic Volume Unlimited

On the search to find the perfect drugstore mascara, I probably tried over 25 mascaras but I haven't found the one yet. Essence is well known for their great formulas in mascaras and I also tried many from Essence, some great and some not, some giving volume and not length and some giving length without the volume or curling effect. My favourite ever is the Essence Big Lashes Volume Boost mascara but I cannot find it anymore in stores, so maybe it's discontinued.

Happy Valentine's Day ♥

Today is a special day for those who celebrate love and Valentine's day is all about love. This day is the day where our instagram feed will be full of pink and red flowers, hearts, gifts, pink lipstick, red ribbon, happy people and honestly, I love this day. I love the happy mood everyone is on, making plans for the night to celebrate. But I strongly believe that we must celebrate each day of the year and show our love not only today, but every day.
