#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  😉

VIDEO: MAKEUP HAUL♡

Hello loves! How was your weekend? I still have 3 more weeks until the end of my finals and I'm slowly dying XD This is why I haven't been so active lately. Plus, I really wanted to film and edit this video, which is a lot of work. But it was totally worth it! 
You guys know that I am absolutely obsessed with watching Youtube videos and, since I am so bubbly myself, I also love making my own.
This video is a collective makeup haul. Basically a bunch of makeup items that I bought lately. Some were birthday presents (♥) and also a big portion of this stuff was sent to me.
 So, I want to say a HUGE thank you to the girls from Aromca for sending me the most adorable stuff! I couldn't be more thankful since I am actually using all of them on a daily basis! You can find out everything about Erre Due makeup on their website erredue.gr  They really have amazing products!
What do you guys think about the products I hauled? Have you tried any? Let me know in the comments below!

SPRING FESTIVAL MAKEUP TUTORIAL♡


Hello my darlings! Is your Monday going great? Ha-ha dumb question, I know. Well, maybe this post will spice it up a little bit. I decided to take a tiny break from my mini series, since I posted this brand new video.
I'm uploading once a month now...I'm slowly getting there. Anyway, Coachella(aka my dream festival) is right around the corner and, even though I'm not going, I'm excited. Thus, I created this makeup look. I think it's great for any spring-bohemian festival and I believe that it compliments that extra trendy 70's vibe. 
Well, I think it's bohemian, my dad thinks it's middle eastern...who knows XD Nonetheless, I really dig it and Ι like the way it looks on me. Plus, I had so much fun filming it^_^
What do you guys think? Do you like my look? Let me know in the comments below♥

FEBRUARY FAVORITES♥

Have a nice month everyone! Am I on a video strike lately or what? You guys know that I've always loved creating videos but I never had the time to really get into it. I just hope that I will be able to continue doing this because it is so fun!
This video is all about my beauty favorites for the past month. To be honest, I also filmed a couple of random favorites but the footage didn't make the cut because I didn't want the video to be a billion minutes long. I tried to keep it as short as I could and I narrowed it down to my absolute faves, aka the products that I've been using non-stop during February.
I hope you guys enjoy this video of me making a fool of myself! What are your favorites? What other videos would you like to see in the future?

Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial♥

Yes, I finally uploaded another video! I've been wanting to do it for so long, but I was incredibly busy with my finals. But, the minute I finished, I sat down to film this look for you! 
It's probably my favorite look so far, because it is feminine and maybe "subtle" but it's also really sexy and glam. This time, I wanted to go all the way, hence the falsies and the contouring. I would definitely wear this for valentine's or for a date and I think that anyone can pull it off, no matter the skin tone or the style. I wore this on a night out with friends, with this mauve turtleneck, a black skirt and over-the-knee boots, but you can pair it with so many different looks. 
I realised that most of the VD tutorials involved pinks and mauves and glitter, but that was after I had uploaded it XD
Anyway, I hope you guys like this look whether you are single or in a relationship. Make sure to tag me if you recreate this♥
All the products I used are in the YT description bar^*

YOUTUBE CONTEST♥

Hello my lovelies! How are you? I'm currently incredibly busy and overwhelmed because of my finals but I just had to share my video with you.
It's part of a greek competition for new youtubers-hence me speaking Greek XD! Many people from all around Greece sent their submissions and the people organising the contest chose the top 100. Mine included! I couldn't believe it, to be honest^^
Now it's up to the crowd to decide their top 20 picks. I don't see mine winning but I'm still proud that I got some sort of recognition and, of course, I'm proud for my effort and the result. 
The contest ends in 5 days and I finally got the chance to share it with you. I would really appreciate it if you could check it out and give it a thumbs up if you enjoy it. Even if you can't understand greek you can just mute me and watch the tutorial:P
I hope you like it! Let me know in the comments below♥

FALL GLAM MAKEUP TUTORIAL♥

You guessed it right, it's another Youtube video! I'm so excited to share this with you. I know I've been on and off with Youtube for so long, but with so many things going on in my life it's hard to keep up. I've noticed though that whenever I do them, you guys seem to enjoy them as much as I do. I will try to upload more often from now on and I will definitely upload another one next month since I'm planning something special for you (shhhh ^*)!
In this one, I'm showing you an easy way to create a glamorous yet wearable makeup look using products mainly from the drugstore. It goes without saying that you can use things you already own to recreate this. I am not a makeup artist and I'm still learning, so please don't judge! 
I believe that this look is perfect for fall (and beyond) and it combines nicely warm neutrals with the smoky effect and bold lips. Feel free to play around and add winged liner for a more dramatic effect or change for nude lips in order to make this more daytime-appropriate. It all depends on your style and taste!
I hope you guys like this video, give it a thumbs-up if you do! Please subscribe to my channel and check out my previous videos! Let me know what you think in the comments below♥

MY GREEK LITTLE PARADISE: BEACH BY THE CITY

Hello guys! How are you all? I hope your weekend went well. Mine was great because I had the chance to relax for a while and unwind, which we all know is hard to find. 
On Saturday morning I went at the beach with my bestie. Of course we didn't swim, with 15⁰C and less outside, but we had so much fun just hanging by the sea and feeling the sun on our skins. I know most people wouldn't call this an "adventure" but for us it was, especially when you're used to being inside everyday studying or walking in the city. 
Anyways, I decided to film some moments and I think they make a cute video. After all this blog is also about travelling!
I hope that you guys like what I did. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below♥
