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.

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.

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.
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.

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!

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

After all the hype of matte and dry liquid lipsticks, one would think: who on earth wears a lip gloss in 2017? Personally, I haven't worn a lip gloss for at least 5 years since I hate my lips feeling sticky and also, my long hair always gets stuck on my lips if I wear one. Plus, many brands stopped producing lip glosses since there are other trends that brands focus on, such as lip stains and liquid lipsticks.

My love for lipsticks is well known here on my blog but also in real life. My friends know, my fiance knows (he practically lives with them) and my mum once commented and asked me if my room was a department of a beauty store! It sure feels like it and I am sure every one of you feels that way. We collect so many lovely products or makeup and things that make us feel beautiful. And yes, I am a lipstick hoarder.

Oriflame is probably one of the first brands I tried when I started using makeup and taking care of my skin. I remember me and my friends browsing through the catalogues and flipping the pages since this was the only way to order the products (yes, we are that old!) and taking notes on what products interest us and what makeup we were going to purchase and wear on our Saturday night out! Those were the relaxed and stress-free years and I miss them a lot. Oh well, I don't actually miss them, I just miss the fact that the only concerns and worries we had back then, were where to go for coffee, what to wear on a night out and who we will meet at the party.

I've talked about the W7 lipsticks in the past and how much I love them. From the moment I discovered this brand I became obsessed. The W7 products are extremely affordable (you know this girl loves nice and affordable products) and their lipsticks come in a variety of shades you wouldn't know which one to choose. And this girl chooses everything she sees!

I know it's such a cliche to say I love Valentine's Day and every year I get excited about it and I truly believe we should celebrate our love every day of the year and not only on the 14th of February. But yes, I love this day. I love everything about it, the mood, the flowers, everything pink and red, people that are happy and celebrating and look after each other. Love is in the air my dear friends!

After I tried plenty of micellar waters from different brands, I came to the conclusion that this one is by far my favourite. It removes everything, and I mean everything from my face; makeup, oil, impurities, dirt, everything. It does not irritate my skin nor it dries it out, it is gentle and it is also suitable for sensitive skin. I sometimes use this after washing my face and it is amazing how much dirt this product picks up, when I thought I just washed my face and it is super clean. I also use it on my neck since I sometimes find it difficult to clean my neck area correctly.

I could swear I don't own many nail polishes since I only use a couple of them in winter (usually a dark red, a dark grey and a plum) and a couple of them in spring and summer (usually the same light pink or light orange nail polish) but if you take a look in my top drawer, you will be able to see a box full of nail polishes. Oh God, why is this thing happening all the time? I guess that is the definition of a beauty blogger/beauty obsessed that collects beauty items and makeup but rarely uses.

I promised myself that I would only write about products that I am really pleased with in January, but I couldn't help it. These two products are a nightmare, or at least were a nightmare since I no longer use them. Generally, I like the Aussie brand and tried many hair products in the past but these two are my biggest disappointment and I will explain why.

When I was contacted by the lovely Jessica at Rosegal who asked if I wanted to try their clothes in exchange with a review, I just couldn't say no. I first tried their clothes in summer and I really liked the quality of them, especially a blue chiffon summer dress I received and wore all summer. (summer post here).

Neutrogena Visible Clear Pore & Shine Daily Wash
I haven't used a Neutrogena product for ages and when I saw this gel wash, I knew I had to try it. A strange thing happens with my skin in winter, one day it's so shiny and oily and needs extra cleansing and the next day, it's so dry it needs moisturising.

What is the best thing to do when you are feeling stressed and tired and have been working non stop during the week? The answer is simple. Have some 'me' time and relax, unwind from all things that make us anxious and stressed and enjoy some free time.
I love to do this every Friday, I feel it's the best time after a stressful week and this is the routine I follow and the products I use.
