My Current Top 5 Fall Nail Polish

Essence 52 / Essence 10 / H&M Roseraie / H&M Red Cacao / Essie Angora Cardi

Hello everyone,

We're already halfway into fall? What? How did that even happen! Feels like it was just yesterday we were bidding adieu to summer. The weather though has been so warm and kind that it was easy to forget we're on our way to winter. Not gonna lie though, I kinda want the temperatures to drop a little so I can start wearing all my awesome new fall finds *hehe*.

L'Oréal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation Review + Demo

Hello blogger world,

It's been a while since I did a beauty post. During summer I don't fuss too much over makeup so I just didn't have anything exciting to share, but as soon as fall kicked in I knew I needed to revamp my makeup drawer. So long story short, I popped in the department store and picked up a few goodies to change things up in my usual routine, among which the much-talked about  L'Oréal Nude Magique (or Lumi in some parts of the world) Cushion Foundation.

Luxury vs. Value: Fashion Dupes

Hello everyone,

Most of us are well aware of beauty "dupes". Sure you must have seen beauty blog posts and videos of side-to-side comparisons of luxury products and their lower-priced counterparts. But we rarely see a showdown between the season's hottest fashion items and their high street alternatives. If anything, it's somewhat of a taboo among the fashion industry. We all know that Zara basically copies all the popular designs you see at Net-A-Porter and the like, but nobody talks about it that openly, even if the "inspiration" is more than blatant.

In May I did a similar post which you can find here. The process of making it was so much fun I decided to try it again this season. Hopefully my findings will save you the trouble of having to look for a cheaper version of that hella-expensive item you've been coveting.

Luxury vs Value: Cat print + minimalistic pumps

While the Dolce Gabbana meowy prints are super adorable and covet-worthy, if you're shopping this trend simply for the quirk of it and let's say you're not exactly interested in the particular cut and quality of the garment then there's no reason why you should fork out nearly 2k when the job could be done for 20 euros. Same goes for the minimalistic, block heel pumps: if the cool design is your main reason for buying this shoe the Mango one should work just fine at a tenth of the price.

Dancing At Sunset

Hello again,

If you know me well then you surely know that sunset and twilight are my favorite time of the day. That serene, magical moment when it seems as though everything is painted in lilac and even the ugly can look charming, is unbeatable.

August in Greece: White & Blue

Hello my lovelies,

Summer's on its way out. The feeling's bittersweet... mostly bitter. I feel like this summer flew by so quickly but I'm still thankful for all the pretty memories. It was a quiet, relaxing time spent in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Greece.

As August approaches the city becomes emptier and emptier. Buses get signifantly less crowded and downtown you're more likely to find foreigners than anything else.

Skopelos Day 5

Okay. I know I said that the previous post was my favorite from the Skopelos series but I've changed my mind. This is the one.
