#GreekFaceAwards - NYX ♡

Hello my darlings! How are you this fine looking day? I sure am tired as eff but really excited at the same time. Easter break has officially started and I am so down for not going to college for two weeks. I really needed a break from all the classes (and tbh the people there) and, even though I have so much in my plate at the moment, I will try to unwind and relax as much as I can. 
Anyway, today I wanted to talk to you about the story behind my entry for the #GreekFaceAwards by NYX. Basically the greek version of the og Nyx face Awards, where you have to create an out of this world makeup look and compete with others.
When I first heard about it, I had mixed feelings. First things first, I don't really do special effects makeup, creepy looks etc. so I wasn't sure what I could do. The other thing that was holding me back, was more serious though. 
Some people from college and this guy that was hitting on me discovered my videos and that made me feel so self-conscious and just, really, bad. I re-watched all my videos and all I could see was flaws and things I didn't like. Thus, I made them all private. Generally, I seem pretty confident, so it's hard for people to understand how insecure I can get at times.
As far as the guy is concerned, I felt I didn't look as pretty as I do now, one or two years ago. As for my classmates now, it's more complicated. First of all, that particular group is known to gossip like there's no tomorrow and be mean for fun. I already went through this in high school, with this girl who was trying to bring me down and make me feel terrible about myself (sort of a wannabe bully) and I just didn't want that kind of negativity in my life again. I'm not the victim type of person but, I don't like confrontation and some people interpret that as me not fighting back. And I didn't want that.
But then it hit me. Was I going to let them dictate my actions and tell me how to live my life? I don't think so! It doesn't matter who you are, how pretty, smart or talented you seem. There will always be haters out there, bullies and people full of negativity, inferiority complexes and inhibitions who will criticize you no matter what.
I realised that I didn't need to be better, I just needed thicker skin. Those people are so completely irrelevant to me and their opinions are worth nothing. And there is no way I will let them affect me in such a bad way ever again. I am going to do what I love, work hard and do what makes ME happy. And if they're not ok with it well, pardon me, but they can suck it! Nobody is forcing them to watch my videos, read my blog or even talk to me and I suggest they get a job or a hobby or do some volunteer work instead of gossiping about others behind their backs. Get a life people!
I absolutely love what I do, every little aspect of it, and I do love myself. And I'm never going to let them or anyone else convince me for the opposite. And you shouldn't either. Be confident, stay true to yourself and don't listen to anyone else. You can be perfect and they still won't like you. In fact, the better you are, the more threatened they feel! Leave them and their negativity behind. If you believe in yourself, nobody can drag you down. You do you boo 😘 
So, here is my video. I didn't make it to the top 20, but it's ok. I adore it, my friends adore it and it symbolizes something very important to me. This is me being me. Think of it as my fairy princess alter ego. With pink, glitter, rhinestones and a tiara! Just the way I like it. ♥
I hope you do too! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below and don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel  😉

VALENTINE'S DAY ft. BONOBOS ♡

Hello my darlings! I'm back! I finally finished with my finals and I couldn't be happier. I am so ready to relax and have fun and see all my friends again. Let's just ignore the fact that I've been working all day today because...fashion :P
Anyway, today I wanted to do a Valentine's Day post for all my lovebirds out there. Personally, I don't celebrate it a)because I'm single and dating and b)because I feel that, if you are in love, every day is special. It doesn't matter though, because I love creating sets and articles about this "holiday".
This time, I teamed up with Bonobos again, to create two looks for you. If you've been with me for a while, you might remember our previous collaboration. If not, you can check it out here. Bonobos, basically offers high quality menswear, and I can guarantee that you'll look like a million bucks if you get your clothes from their website bonobos.com I absolutely love their chic and polished aesthetic and I wish more men would dress like that. Well, a girl can dream ;) 
If you're looking to buy menswear for yourself or a special someone, I would highly recommend you to check out their website and especially their pant's page.
The first look that I created (header) is very bold yet classy. This suit is what black tie dreams are made of and I just adore how lovely it looks with the deep red clothes. This has to be my favorite shade of red-almost bordeaux-and I think it's so sexy and sultry, especially paired with the black sandals. I love red on red and, since it can get pretty intense, I would suggest keeping everything else (including the makeup) pretty minimal. This look is proof that you can be sexy and feminine without showing too much skin or wearing tight clothes. Lastly, let's just admit that if we saw this couple out on Valentine's Day, we'd be pretty darn jealous XD

Bonobos: valentine's day ♥
The second look is a bit more casual yet still very polished and glam. I really like the laid-back vibe of the suit and how well it plays with the pink candy tones. I feel like this is fit for a younger couple who wanted to dress up for the special occasion, hence the diamond choker. The pumps are simply to die for ♥ and the makeup set from Kylie's collections is just perfect for the look!

So, what do you guys think? Which one of these looks is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below ♥

HOLIDAY MAKEUP ♡

Happy New Year everyone! Can you believe it's finally 2017? I am so glad that we are moving on from the year that must not be named ;) I had the most amazing time on nye and I really hope you did too. Being genuinely happy around my friends and family is something so precious and empowering and it really gave me hope for the future. May the new year bring happiness, health, love and success to us all! I wish all the best for you and your loved ones ♥
I don't know about you, but makeup always makes me happy. Thus, one of the things that put a smile on my face this holiday season, were all the press samples I received. Aromca was kind enough to send me a bunch of makeup and I can't thank them enough!
I mostly got lip products. A gorgeous waterproof lipliner from Artdeco in the shade "10", a lovely deep red shade(1st swatch). I also got a matte red lipstick (Perfect Mat 116 Poppy Red) from the same brand (3rd swatch) and a creamy one from Erre Due (Full Color Lipstick No.420 Criminal Red) in a similar shade (2nd swatch). Both of them have orange undertones-which are not my favorite-but they are very pretty. The only downside to the E.D. lipstick is that is bleeds and gets on my teeth. Like, a lot :/ So I guess I either need a lip primer or a lipliner underneath. 
The third lipstick that I got was also from Erre Due (4th swatch) in the shade 587. It's a gorgeous matte vine shade that is right up my alley. It vanished when I ate, but stayed put all night when I was drinking on NYE ;)

I'm really excited about the highlighter that I got too. It's in the shade Cinderella Pink-My Precious Glow (5th swatch) and it's a lovely pinky-white shade. It offers more of a subtle glow, but it gets better if you spray it with some Fix Plus. It has a gorgeous floral design and it smells like a delicious cupcake♥ #yum
Other than that, I got the Velvet Touch Lengthening Mascara from Artdeco and a brow pencil from Erre Due. I haven't tried either of them because I already have some mascaras in my rotation and I didn't want this one to dry out and I also gave the brow pencil to my mum as a gift, since I don't need to fill in my eyebrows.
All in all, I am beyond excited with all the makeup that was send to me and I can't wait to play more with it!

DIAMOND CHOKER & BRA ♡

Hello my loves! Are you feeling excited for New Year's Eve? I know I am! I can't believe 2016 has finally come to an end. On the one hand, I had tons of fun and I achieved some amazing things. On the other hand, I went through some really bad things and I am so down to leave them behind tonight. 
I wish that the new year will bring health, happiness, love and success. I wish all the best to you and your families. May our future be as bright as our highlighter ♥ Happy NYE!
I don't know about you, but I have been planning my outfit for NYE for a while now. It's just the perfect opportunity to dress up and get all fancy with a full face of makeup. I'm really excited to be as extra as I can :P And I obviously encourage all of you to do the same. Glow baby glow, and blind the haters ;)
Anyway, today I wanted to tell about an accessory that I've been seeing literally everywhere-especially on Instagram. I'm talking about those gorgeous diamond chokers and bras. 2016 was the year when chokers really made a comeback. I mean, everyone and their mom had at least two.
 Diamond chokers though, are not for everyone. You have to be pretty brave to wear them since, it's guaranteed that they will make everyone's head turn. Especially if you pair them with a diamond bra. I feel that those two together make a very bold pair. I am absolutely in love and I think that they are perfect for NYE.
I am actually going to wear a diamond choker tonight, but I had to refrain from the bra cause I'm not quite sure how my D-cups would fit in a bra like that. And, since I'm gonna be dancing, I don't want to risk flashing everyone :P
Nonetheless, I am obsessed with this trend and I think it totally matches my personality. It's easy to pull it off, especially if you are comfortable with showing cleavage. It's the perfect touch to glam up any look and, if you wear those, you don't even have to try for the rest of your outfit. 
To me, it looks so effortlessly glam and I think that you could even pair it with casual clothes and makeup for a more everyday look. That, of course, depends on your personal style and preferences. I would wear it without a doubt!
What about you guys? What do you think of those lovely diamond pieces? Let me know in the comments below♥

STYLE FILE: HOODIES & FUR ♡

hoodie and fur
Hello my loves? How is life treating you? I'm a bit terrible, since I got sick again, but imma fight it ;) I'm definitely not ready for the holidays, that's for sure!
Thus, I decided to skip the xmas posts and talk about real street style. It's been my favorite lately and I've been really loving all the trends. Basically, think cool girl meets lazy girl. Like Kendall and Gigi. 
The new hot trend, that I'm really digging is wearing a fur (faux obvi) over your hoodie. All the icons (and Kanye XD) are pairing them with skinny pants and they're mixing and matching different colors and patterns.
Why I think this is awesome? First of all, it's so incredibly comfortable. If you sleep in hoodies, like I do, then you basically go out in your pj's. Hoodie plus fur equals warm and cozy. I also wear skinny jeans on the daily and then the sneaks or boots that go with my look. Lastly, this look combines casual badass girl with glam and sophisticated lady. Think of it as the adult way to wear a hoodie. 
Extra points if the hoodie is long and you wear it like a dress with otk boots! Simply cool and amazing.
What do you guys think about this trend? Let me know in the comments below ♥

GETTING PERSONAL...♡

Hello my darlings! Are you freezing your everything off where you live? Or is it just us here in Greece? I guess it's a small price to pay for the wonderful weather we have the rest of the year. That header, for example, showing me enjoying the awesome greek summer back in August. Btw, I obviously can swim, and I used to do it competitively, but I just love to relax in my floatie♥ Oh how I miss it!

Anyway, today, I wanted to take a tiny break from our fashion chats and talk about something a little more personal, and more real and important, if you will. 

I just wanted to say that I've been so stressed and in such a bad mental state lately and I'm trying so hard to get over it. I want you guys to know that I am here, if you ever need someone to talk to :) 

I know exactly how bad it can get and I know that sometimes it may feel like you're powerless. But you're not. You are the boss, you control yourself and it is your choice to not let anything and anyone affect you. You are the most important one and you are beautiful-inside & out-just the way you are. Don't let them convince you you are not worthy of something/someone or that you are just not enough. 

I think the most important thing I have to say, apart from advising you to believe in yourselves-if you can dream it you can do it!- is that you are in fact way stronger than you think. And way better than you're letting yourself admit. All those people you see, so confident and full of themselves, they've got nothing on you. They just know how to fake it. Or they are ignorant enough to believe that they are perfect. Nobody is or ever will be perfect. The sooner you realise that, the better.

Everyone is unique and we should learn to love ourselves first, before we seek love and approval from others. After all, their opinions couldn't matter less. If you think you can get better, by all means, go ahead and shine! But, stop beating yourself up and being so hard and mean on you.

If you feel like you are not enough, work harder. If you feel like you can't make it, just know that you can. This is coming from someone who had a panic attack, two days ago, and couldn't breath properly or function, or stop crying. And for something so unimportant. 

Talk to others, make them understand and, most importantly, talk to yourself (even out loud if you need to) and accept who you are. Accept your flaws and your imperfections, embrace your good qualities. And never, ever, let anyone bring you down. After all, at the end of the day, all you're left with is yourself. And you should be thankful you are so amazing!

Family, boys, friends, school, work...they are all important in their own way. But, most of them are also so ephemeral. They come and go so fast. And all you're left is the scars that you let happen. Cherish the good times, make great memories, create strong bonds and let go of anything toxic that is poisoning your thoughts. Life is too short to worry about them-or anything.

Take a deep breath, do more of what makes you happy and, relax, and love yourself ♥

SYLE FILE: FISHNET STOCKINGS♡

Hello my loves! How are you all this cold cloudy day? Or is it just here in Athens? Who knows... As for me, it's that time of the month (TMI I know) and we all know how that goes. I've been in bed all day working and dying :P
On the bright side, I'm finally posting on my blog♥ Today, we're talking about a mojor trend, fishnet stockings! 
Do you remember the days when those were so trendy and then they so weren't? And now, much like the other 90's trends, they're back. But, they got a makeover and I am totally obsessed with them. We used to refer to them as tacky and provocative but this is another example of how the person's style can affect the way an item looks. I mean...those trashy girls were wearing them in red and hot pink with belt-like-skirts and stripper heels...can you blame me?
Anyways, atm the icons like Kylie and Kendall and some of my favorite style youtubers like Maddi Bragg are giving this grungy trend a new twist. The street-style cool-girl ways to wear them are endless!
You can wear them with oversized hoodies/t-shirts and boots (thigh-high too), with party dresses, with shorts, skirts, sneakers and (probably my favorite way) jeans. Imagine seeing black fishnets inside the rips of denim pants, over the jeans if you're wearing a croptop and under them if you roll them and pair them with ankle booties or sneaks. 
Also, I adore the version with the tiny pearls and gems on the fishnet. It's so edgy and glam! As you probably guessed, I've already purchased a pair and I can't wait to  wear them *_*
What about you guys? What do you think of this trend? Let me know in the comments below♥
