First days of Autumn, Spice Pumpkin Lattes and new Make up Obsessions

Autumn has well and truly arrived and it might be that I’m a (late) Autumn baby but I bloody love this season and everything about it. From the cozy jumpers and the delicious spice pumpkin lattes to the autumnal scents and colours, I get excited this time every year  as I’m anticipating new and exciting things to come.

It’s also the season that many beauty brands choose to launch their new lines and products and this year has not let us,beauty fans, down. Charlotte Tilbury launched her new line of liquid lipsticks, Victoria Beckham launched her new make up collection with Estée Lauder and Jo Malone has released 2 new amazing English Oak based scents. And that’s to name a few. Here’s what I’m already loving and what I’m lusting over this September!

New Favourites:

Nails Inc Caffeine Hit Range

Coffee is one of the things I appreciate the most in life, up there with chocolate and good wine. So I was super excited to see that Nails Inc brought the colour of my favourite beverage to my nails this Autumn. The Caffeine Hit range features 4 amazing rich coffee-brown shades-3 matte and one sparkly-and the best thing? They are caffeine infused and actually smell of coffee! I bought the Espresso Martini shade to try first but I’m convinced I have to complete the collection with the rest of the shades.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Liquid Lipstick

IMG_0083.JPG

I have to admit that there’s no love lost between me and liquid lipsticks. I usually find them heavy on my lips, difficult to apply without making a messy job out of it and sticky. However, I’m open-minded especially if it has anything to do with a new Charlotte Tilbury release. And rightly so! When I checked out the new Hollywood Lips shades I loved them all but wasn’t holding my hopes up  with regards to their formula. As soon as I tried them on though I was happily surprised! They feel nourishing and comfortable on the lips rather than sticky, their application is beautiful and they are really long-lasting. I went for the Too Bad I’m Bad shade but I want them all!

Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

I started noticing lately that the laughter lines around my eyes are getting more and more evident. And although I love a good lol as much as the next person, I felt that I should take some…action before it’s too late. I am quite lazy when it comes to my eye skincare routine-I struggle with actually sticking to one. So I knew I needed a product easy to apply, mild on the eyes (as mine are quite sensitive) and good with dark circles as well as with fine lines. After doing a lot of research I was between the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue  Cream  and the Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream as I read great reviews for both of them.  I decided to go for the latter one though as I felt that its natural ingredients would make it very gentle to the eyes. Now I haven’t been using it for long so watch this space for a performance review, but first impressions have been really great! It starts as a rich cream but after tapping it around the eyes it magically turns to water and then gets immediately absorbed by the skin. And I have already seen a difference in the appearance of dark circles. So, so far so good 🙂

Wishlist:

 

Glossier Cloud Paint Cream Blush

 

 

You know it’s going to be an amazing Autumn in the beauty world when you hear that cult beauty brand Glossier will finally start shipping to the UK in October! I can’t wait to try all their products but I know which one is going to be the first on my list. Cloud Paint has so many raving fans loving it that I’ve been dying to try it.  The product’s gel-cream formula is designed to give a natural, seamless finish while hydrating and plumping up the skin. It is available in 4 shades: Dusk, Puff, Beam and Haze.

 

VICTORIA BECKHAM X ESTÉE LAUDER- Eye Foil

The Autumn/Winter 2017 Victoria Beckham collection for Estée Lauder was a much anticipated one after the success of her first collection for the brand. And it is as stunning as it is innovative.

Eye foil, a product launched in her first collection, is back in new shades. These liquid eye shadows create a vinyl-like finish on the eye and use sparkling pearls to give a gunmetal foil effect. Burnt Anise is my absolute favourite shade and definitely in my wishlist along with the gorgeous Matte Lipstick in Black Cassis

 

Ciaté London Dewy Stix

Which Dewy Stix is for me?

 

I really-really love a good highlighter. It has started becoming one of my favourite beauty products. When used properly and is of a good quality, it gives such a charming shine to the face.

Ciaté London’s Dewy Stix is a highlighting balm stick that gives gloss and shine without shimmer. It is available in 3 shades, Glow , Gleam and Lustre.  I have my eyes on Lustre which is a rose gold shade that gives a glamorous, pink toned iridescence.

Which are your favourite beauty products this Autumn? Can’t wait to hear your recommendations!

Love,

Weddings’ Season Part 2-First Time Maid of Honour

IMG_9254

Quoting Grey’s Anatomy, Katerina is my person. I met her 15 years ago when we where both teenagers trying to figure life out. With long blonde hair and the warmest eyes, she got straight into my heart. And she staid there through our University years in Athens (where we were spending our time discovering ourselves by having deep conversations and getting tipsy in little taverns singing our way back home) up until now, that we are trying to work out how to…adult.

When Katerina found love, her One, I was over the moon. And when she asked me to be her maid of honour (koubara in Greek) and be part of one of the biggest days in her life well…I cried! Although living in different countries, we spent the months before the wedding talking and messaging on a daily basis so I couldn’t wait for the wedding day to finally come!

The wedding took place at Meganisi, a beautiful little island in the Ionian Sea. We all traveled there the day before the wedding and we spent our time at the beach up until a few hours before the ceremony!

IMG_8947.JPG

The Bride and Groom were the most gorgeous couple you will ever see, with the bride looking like a magical fairy in her dress-let me take a moment to take my hat out to her for doing her hair and make-up on her own!!!-and the groom looking very handsome in a blue suit that matched his eyes. The ceremony was very intimate and took place at a tiny little church by the sea. I was so stressed about my role in exchanging the rings but fortunately everything went smoothly!

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, wedding and outdoor

The wedding party was held at the Esperides Resort Hotel  , a beautiful venue with a breathtaking view that welcomed us with the most gorgeous sunset.  We staid there until the first hours of the next day dancing in the rhythm of the newly-weds love.

Choosing an outfit for this wedding was quite the challenge as I wanted something very special that would at the same time suit the laid back style of an island wedding. Eventually, I went for a coral gown in Grecian style from Little Mistress.

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, people standing and outdoor

As we were in a small island, I had to do my own make up and I went for a bronze/coral look to suit the dress. I used some of my favourite make up products to create it including:

the porefessional face primer

  • Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam highlighter

Matte bronzer doubles as bronzing powder AND contour powder!

Blush - Super Orgasm

426 - ROUSSY

  • Laura Mercier Lip Glace lip gloss in Bare Baby

Lip Glacé

Weddings’Season Part 1-Wedding in Sicily

19225962_10213374212367802_7924395392628103082_n

Last week I came back from my summer holidays tanned, relaxed but also filled with very strong feelings of love and pride. Like every year, my summer holidays involved sun, sea, and down time. Only this year they were extra special because I got to be part of some of my dearest friends’ and family’s big day… Their wedding day!

The first wedding I attended was of my boyfriend’s brother’s. The ceremony took place in Sicily, on a beautiful sunny day and it was truly amazing. The couple looked gorgeous and made for one another and their love was radiating throughout the day.

My boyfriend got to be best man for his brother and his pride and joy on the day was so moving. He looked so handsome in his Ted Baker suit which he bought from the amazing Moss Bros shop in Newcastle. The tailored fit of the suit was super elegant while the violet back of its waist coat added a beautiful detail to the outfit.

IMG_8897.JPG

I selected my own outfit for the wedding from a bridesmaids’ dresses boutique in Newcastle called Here Come The Bridesmaids  where the amazing Nicola helped me choose among all the stunning dress designs available. I went for a maxi figure hugging ruby red dress with a cute diamond detail.

IMG_8895.JPG

 

I completed the look with the Rose Glitter hardcase clutch bag  and a pair of cage crystal stud earrings from Accessorize and a pair of silver diamante ‘Mirelivia’ high block heel ankle strap sandals from Debenhams.

My make up for the wedding was done by a professional make up artist using exclusively Clinique products from which I especially loved:

More Cherries-Part 2 (and last!)

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying the warm sunny days 🙂

As promised (warned), here’s the second part of my cherry-themed post as I didn’t want to leave these beauties out:

Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick in Black Cherry

 

In a different, darker shade of cherry, the colour of this lipstick is so beautifully dramatic and seductive. Its  liquified lipstick formula is applied on the lips like a gloss but then dries to a matte finish. The product is infused with a no-sting lip plumper and filler to make the lips look fuller and the colour even more intense.

Dolce & Gabbana Marina Spring-Summer 2017 T-Shirt

T-SHIRT IN COTTON WITH JEWEL EMBROIDERY

All the beautiful patterns on this T-shirt speak of summer and take you to the wold of sailing where the 2017 Dolce & Gabbana Marina collection took its inspiration from. The t-shirt’s vibrant colours, relaxed look and cheerful design makes it one of my favourite items of this collection.

River Island-One Shoulder Bikini 

I love how different the style of this bikini is! The one shoulder design is so sexy as are the net details and of course the print. Not so sure about the tan lines it will give though!

Tikiboo-Red Cherry Leggings

 

I am a big fan of the Tikiboo funky designs for their leggings collection and this pair is one of my favourites!  These fun black Lycra tights are designed for comfort throughout the workout and better recovery.  Also available in Capri length leggings.

Bobbi Brown-Pot Rouge For Lips And Cheeks

BOBBI BROWN Pot Rouge For Lips And Cheeks (Chocolate cherry

I love 2-in-1 products. This multi–tasking cream colour comes in a handy compact packaging and works both as a blush and a lip stain. The cherry chocolate shade is stunning and gives a natural finish to cheeks and lips.

Love,

Eleni xx

 

 

Cherries on Top-part 1

IMG_8234

Hi everyone!

So on this post I’m going to confess to you one of my obsessions… Cherries!

Apart from being among my favourite fruit and a symbol of warm summer days, I also love their vibrant, intense colour and sexy, playful shape. Everything with a cherry pattern or shade is bound to steal my heart!

Many of my favourite fashion and beauty brands are feeding my obsession this season so here’s a list of my favourite cherry themed/coloured products:

Pull & Bear Long Sleeve Cherries-Printed Shirt

love the casual chic style of this shirt! You can dress it up or down and its print makes it a statement piece-perfect match for denim. I could wear it every day all day.

Lancome Juicy Shaker in Cherry Symphony

One of the most long-wearing lip glosses out there, the Juicy Shaker’s Cherry Symphony shade is just gorgeous. Enriched with nourishing oils that contain sweet almond oil, omega 3 and cranberry oil,  it keeps the lips hydrated, in an irresistible cherry shade.

KORRES Almond Cherry Body Milk

I bought this body milk for my friend’s birthday and it really has one of the most sensual, delicious, addictive scents I have ever smelled in a body lotion. Sweet but fresh, it is enriched with almond oil, active Aloe and provitamin B5.

Ann Summers Cherry Cami Night Set by ASOS

Image result for Ann Summers Cherry Cami Night Set

Cheeky and cute, I love the pattern on this Ann Summers Cami Night Set. There is also a super cute watermelon pattern set if you prefer a different…fruit!

MAC Lip Pencil in Cherry 

The base to my Ruby Woo lips, the cherry shade of this pencil enhances the iconic MAC red , has amazing pigmentation and helps the lipstick stay in place for hours.

GUCCI Leather Cherry Pump

Gucci Leather cherry pump Detail 5

Now there’s a pair of shoes that is guaranteed to steal the show! I’m not sure what I love the most about them… Their beautiful turquoise colour?  The bamboo effect heel?Or the cherry decoration on the front that comes complete with encrusted crystals? Whatever it is, these shoes have stolen my heart forever!

Charlotte Tilbury Lost Cherry Lipstick

MATTE REVOLUTION

The Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick is one of my absolute favourite. It’s so pigmented and long lasting yet soft on the lips. I love the Lost Cherry shade and can’t wait to add it to my summer lipsticks collection.

Enjoy the cherries season!

Love,

Eleni xx

Spring Crush

Hi Everyone,

God it’s been ages! Work and life took over the past few weeks but I’m back and can’t wait to talk to you about all my new Spring crushes 🙂

I’m dreaming of Spring while I’m looking out the window to a grey, rainy day… But here’s hoping for some warm weather, some sunny days and some proper flowers blossoming!

In the meantime here are a few of the things that stole my heart these first days of Spring..

Zatchel Bags

I was in York for a catch up with one of my best friends when I passed by a Zatchel shop. I couldn’t resist but taking a look inside and that’s when I saw the Red Leather Satchel from their Classic Satchel Collection. The red colour is so warm and vibrant and the bag itself is of high quality and so elegant in its classic school satchel style that I had to make it mine!

img_7738.png

Although I went for a more autumnal colour, I love their Pastel Satchel Collection for Spring. Here are some of my favourite colours of this range:

The Little Spring Dress-Ruffle Knit Dress by Hollister

Nothing feels more like Spring than wearing a little casual, floaty dress! This super cute knit dress has a wrap-front, shape flattering design that ties at the waist and adjustable cami straps which is always a plus! I got mine in blue but it’s also available in grey and burgundy.

The Body Shop-The Finest Facial Mask Duo

Related image

I actually got this amazing mask duo as a gift for my birthday back in November! I was still using some other mask products back then though so it was only recently that I  tried these ones.

The set includes the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask which I used as a first step to clean my skin and draw out impurities. It offers a deep cleaning sensation (its scent is quite particular) and leaves the skin feeling smooth and glowing without that feeling of dryness that some purifying masks leave to my skin.

The second product in this set,  which I used right after the purifying mask, is the British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask. The texture of this mask is totally different to what I was expecting! It has a gel feel to it and it actually looks like jam! It smells amazing and it’s very light on the skin. Super hydrating, it leaves the skin very smooth and fresh.

I love using them after a long bath as they make me feel as I’m at a spa being pampered 🙂

Bobby Brown Illuminating Cheek Palette in Guava

Image result for Bobbi Brown Illuminating Cheek Palette in guava

The Bobbi Brown Havana Brights collection has every potential to become my favourite make up collection for the new season! From the name and the packaging to the warm, sexy coral colours and the new funky products it has summer written all over it!

Bringing to the skin the glow after a day in the Caribbean sun, the Illuminating cheek palette has it all; a bronzer, blush and highlighter. When layered together, the shades create a natural-looking, healthy colour with a subtle glittery finish. According to the Bobbi Brown website, the product should be applied by starting with the neutral shade, adding a touch of the bright shade, then finish with the subtly shimmery shade to highlight the face.

Apart from the Illuminating Cheek palette, the collection includes 4 more funky products in different shades:the dual-ended cream shadow stick, the art stick lip pencil, the art stick liquid lip (I love the Papaya shade) and the Havana Brights Cosmetic Bag.

Lush Pop Corn Lip Scrub

My lips and hands had a very difficult winter this year. Which means they need some extra TLC. Hence, I make sure I use a lip scrub a couple of times a week to make the smoother. On my recent visit at Lush I discovered this amazing Popcorn Lip Scrub. It contains coconut and jojoba oils, sugar and sea salt to make the lips soft and although I was skeptical in the beginning, its scent is actually incredible!

Love,

Valentine’s Treats from You to You

Hi Everyone,

With Valentine’s Day approaching, it got me thinking about how grateful I am to feel and receive love every day in different shapes and forms and not just in the romantic way.

As I’m getting older though, I come to realise that as amazing as the feeling of love from and to others might be, true love from ourselves to ourselves is a truly empowering feeling that shouldn’t be ignored!

With that in mind, this Valentine’s Day I have decided to celebrate self-love and why not give me a little treat for it 🙂 These beauties are in my Valentine’s wishlist ❤

 

L’Oreal Paris- Colour Riche Gold Obsession Lipstick 

in Pink Gold

Image result for l oreal paris gold pink

This is such a gorgeous shade and it will look SO amazing on a bronzed skin! Can’t wait for the summer to come to try it on. Enriched with Vitamin E and Omega-3 oils, the Gold Obsession collection has the the moisturizing feel of all Colour Riche lipsticks and comes in 4 more shades: Plum Gold, Pure Gold, Rouge Gold and Nude Gold.

 

Jo Malone- Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne

Image result for Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne

As I mentioned on my previous post, I have been reading Jo Malone’s amazing story which drew me even more towards the brand she created. I recently tried the Nectarine Blossom and Honey Cologne and fell in love with it. Fruity, fresh and sweet this scent is amazing. Being Greek, all its notes bring be back to the glorious summers of my country. Absolutely brilliant!

NARS-Super Orgasm Blush

Image result for nars super orgasm blush

Never before has a blush looked so sexy! NARS blushes are iconic for their shades and texture and the Super Orgasm is no exception. A peachy pink with a gold, glittery punch, it has a silky texture and gives a lovely glowing, healthy look to the skin.

Liz Earle-Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser Rose & Lavender

Image result for Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser Rose & Lavender

As I mentioned on a previous post, the Liz Earle Clean & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser has been my favourite face cleaning solution for months now. While gentle and hydrating, it removes even the most persistent make up leaving the skin feeling fresh, deeply clean and rejuvenated like I have just had a facial. Much as I love the spa-like scent of the original Cleanser, the Rose and Lavender fragrance is gorgeous too!

Katie Loxton London-Bag of Tricks Perfect Pouch

I recently discovered the Katie Loxton London products and since then I have spent hours on their website  browsing through the brand’s gorgeous range of products. From scarves to keyrings, candles and greeting cards, there’s something special for every one. The colour of the Bag of Tricks Perfect pouch though, totally stole my heart. And how cute is their Love Heart Coin Purse!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love,

Lovely things to start the New Year with!

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you all had an amazing time with your loved ones and that 2017 will be the year to make all your dreams come true!

I love new beginnings, setting new goals and making fresh starts. January and the beginning of a new year is a great opportunity for me to reflect on the things I achieved and enjoyed the year that just passed, to try a new approach for the things I would like to have done differently and (the most exciting part of it) set new goals for everything I would like to experience in the new year.

I have chosen to share with you some of the things that I’m loving at the moment and will accompany me in this first month of 2017 🙂

Jo Malone, My Story



I find Jo Malone and her approach to life, enterpreunership and the beauty industry very inspiring so when this book got released it went straigh to my to-read list. I bought it in its paperback version in December and started reading it just before the holidays. I was abroad for about 20 days during the holidays though, so I couldn’t take it with me as it was too heavy. I was looking forward to going back to it when I came home this week and I have been enjoying reading it since. The narrative is very warm and direct, so much that you feel like Jo’s sat next to you telling her story. Her journey is truly amazing and this book is one of the most interesting reads I have come across in a while.

Charlotte Tilbury-Matte Revolution Very Victoria Lipstick

MATTE REVOLUTIONI love starting the New Year with a new favourite lipstick. A Christmas gift from one of my best friends, I got the Matte Revolution mini lipstick charms trio and fell in love with the Very Victoria shade the minute I tried it on. I’m not a great fan of nude shades in the winter, I prefer using them when I have a tan but this one is a perfect  taupe  shade that makes the lips look fuller and the rest of my make up stand out. Despite its matte effect, it feels light and hydrating on the lips, it is long lasting and very elegant.

Bluebird Tea Co.-Snowball Tea

I discovered the Bluebird Tea Co. the week before Christmas, just in time to try their amazing Christmas Cake tea. I am now enjoying their Snowball tea flavour which is as great! After a sugar-heavy Christmas Holiday I have decided to stay away from every kind of dessert so this tea comes as a great guilt-free treat! With a delicious taste and scents of chocolate, marshmallowes and coconut , it feels like a comforting hug in a mug for the post Holiday blues.

Vagabond-Grace Heeled Chelsea Boots

Grace Heeled Chelsea Boots

I practically live in my ankle high boots which means that I make the most out of every pair I buy but I need a new one every January! I really liked the modern design of these boots, especially the nubuck leather details, but what stole my heart was how comfortable they are! I was concerned that they might be tiring because of their considerably high heel (6cm) but they are perfect! I also like how versatile they are as I can wear them at work or dress them down for a more casual look.

L’Occitane-Lavender Foaming Bath

Lavender Foaming Bath

The best time for me to make plans for the New Year is while having a relaxing, candlelit hot bath. The lavender scent of this bubble bath foam enhances the relaxation experience and is sure to guarantee a good night’s sleep. And as with every L’Occitane product that I have tried so far, it is very hydating leaving the skin smooth and soft.

What are your favourite things in the New Year?

Love,

Eleni xx

November Favourites

I absolutely love November! It’s my birthday month, our anniversary month and this year it also marked the beginning of my big 3-0!

I got thoroughly spoiled by my amazing partner and friends and got loads of lovely gifts. I also had a good excuse to spoil myself with some nice treats!

Here are some of the things I loved the most this November:

LUSH Spa-Synaesthesia Treatment

This is the gift that I got myself for my 30th birthday and I enjoyed every minute of it! I love LUSH, had read about their spa treatments and was dying to try one of them. I had initially booked The Comforter treatment at the Lush Spa in Chelsea. A couple of hours before my appointment though, they called me from the Spa to let me know that the therapist giving The Comforter treatment had called in sick and offered me The Synaesthesia treatment (which lasts longer and is normally £40 more expensive) at the same price. Of course I accepted and thought of it as a Lush gift for my birthday 🙂

I am going to briefly describe the experience here as I intend to write a detailed blog post about it-watch this space. If I had to use one word for it, it would be magical. Stepping into the spa kitchen felt like stepping into a different world, into the kitchen of a cozy cottage in the countryside while the treatment room looked like it was out of a good witch’s house, full of beautiful scents, potion bottles and relaxing music and sounds. My amazing therapist Mona, gave me the best full body massage I have ever experienced in my life and when it finished I felt like I was walking on air. I was relaxed, full of positive energy and feeling that I could achieve anything I ever desired! Walking out to a busy Christmassy Chelsea was like being transported to a different world! I had high expectations for this treatment but the experience exceeded them all and I can’t  wait to try a different one next. Fingers crossed there will be  Lush Spa in Newcastle soon!

L’Occitane-Amande Shower Oil

IMG_6723.JPG

Anyone who knows me well knows my love for L’Occitane. For that reason I was over the moon when I got as a birthday present a beauty bag full of L’Occitane goodies! The Almond collection is one of my favourites -the Almond Delicious Soap in always in my bathroom-so the first product to try from my beauty bag was the Amande Shower Oil. Its scent is out of this world, fresh and sweet at the same time. It’s very hydrating and leaves the skin smooth, moisturised smelling soooo good!

System Professional-Silver Shampoo

System Professional Extra Silver Shampoo

I have brown hair with blonde Ombre highlights for a natural look. I love the colour combination but frequently the highlights can turn a little yellowish so the last time I went to my hairdresser’s I asked for a cooler tone of blonde. She then recommended using this shampoo. It’s a bit on the pricey side (£18.95) and as I hadn’t used a silver shampoo before I was a bit skeptical about its effect. I have been using it only once a week (to avoid overpigmenting) for about a month and it has worked really well for my colour! The highlights have come out nicely looking shiny and blending well with my base tone. The shampoo also leaves the hair very soft and hydrated. According to the website the product is great for blonde hair, which is coloured, natural or bleached especially if you do not want to see warmth on blonde or yellow on grey hair as well as for hair with  highlights.

Waterstones-Letters to my Future Self by Lea Redmond

Letters To My Future Self                                                       : Write Now, Read Later, Treasure Forever (Notebook / blank book)

This was one more of my amazing birthday gifts. I love journaling and the idea of writing letters that will be opened by my future self is very exciting to me. This book includes  12 fold-and-mail style letters with prompts to write about a variety of topics (‘I promise to myself…’, ‘All the things I’d like to try someday’, ‘A pep talk for the future me’). It’s a very special way to reflect on dreams and desires, look into the things you love the most in life, feel grateful for all you have and focus on your most precious values. Postdated to be opened on a certain date in the future, I’m sure the letters will make me very happy and emotional when it’s time to open them.

I could go on forever about my November favourites but I will keep the rest of them for the next posts!

Have a lovely and very Christmassy week every one!

Love, 

Eleni xxx
