KYLIE JENNER INSTA-STYLE

WARNING: This is not one more post about Kylie Jenner's lips. Thank youXD.
Hey guys! How are you all? I'm feeling a little sick today but I hope that it will be gone by tomorrow. I say it's my punishment for having way too much on Friday and during the weekend. But who knows?
I've been meaning to make this post a long time now, but something always got in the way. Or maybe it was just me worrying about your response on it. I know that a lot of  people criticise "The Kardashians" and that just as many worship them. But, you see, this post is not about their lifestyle, the plastic surgeries or the scandals. It's about style. And I believe that we can all agree that Kylie Jenner's got it. There is a reason that so many girls are trying to copy her looks these days, after all. 
She caught my attention because of her famous LIPS. I am sure you've seen a tutorial or a ten(thousand) on how to make your lips like hers. As a fashion and beauty blogger, it's my job to pay attention to stuff like that. I thought though that there is no need in talking about her lips AGAIN. All I'm going to say is that any nude-dark pink-mauve-brown matte colors(preferably combined) are her thing. If you want more, then just go ahead and type "kylie lips" on Youtube.

Now, let's talk about the most distinctive things of Kylie's style.
First of all, I'm sure you've noticed her eyebrows. I know I'm stating the obvious, but these bad boys are on flick and you can't deny it. I think that probably people decided that it's not that easy to create the "Cara eyebrows" if you don't have a strong natural shape to back you up. So, they went for Kylie, whose brows are much easier to imitate. 

Next are the nails. I've been drooling over her long artificial nails for a while now. Usually I am not a big fan because they look just too tacky and overloaded, but hers are so simple and chic most of the time. It's actually hard to find a chic set of nails in stores. They all have glitter, prints, 3D stuff on etc...not really my thing.
Moving on to the accessories, Kylie is rocking her stack of the "Love bracelets" from Cartier. You could say it's pretty easy since they are extremely versatile and timeless. But she also wears some cute chokers, or stacks dainty necklaces and bracelets and she also loves rings(chunky or more delicate ones). I want that skull one so, so bad. Her thing for really big sunglasses and tons of earrings is obvious. I guess false lashes could be described as an accessory too, since it's clear that it's her favorite one.
Her style in general could be described as grungy chic meets sexy glam. She lives by crop tops, leather and high-waisted clothes, anything oversized, like a flannel or a kimono and, of course,  high, high heels.

She chopped her hair and dyed the tips blue-green and then she changed that to her usual dark color. Currently she has long extensions on and dyed her hair in a silver-grey color. 
So, this was it for Kylie Jenner's style. I made this post not because I admire her that much or because I think that we should all copy her, but because I like her style and I thought that it's quiet close to mine. I honestly don't care if she has had lip injections or anything, but I would love it of everybody could just stop the hating. Not just on her, but on everybody. There's nothing for you to gain and if you send negative vibes, negative vibes will come back to you. Just be nice to people:)
I know this post was huge but since I don't post that often I feel like I need to say more. Anyway I hope you liked it:D

QUEEN OF GOLD-HALLOWEEN 2014

Queen of gold-Halloween 2014
Happy Halloween everyone! I know that technically it's over here since it's already November 1st(so have a nice month y'all ^^). But, we don't celebrate halloween here in Greece anyway. We have a similar holiday where everyone is dressing up and stuff around February though. But, I know that a lot of my readers are from the US, so I thought I should show you what my costume would be. I already made a post with an exclusive nail art tutorial where I collaborated with Julep, so you can check it out here in case you missed it.
About my costume now. I know that some people go for something really spooky and disgusting on Halloween, but this year I decided I wanted to do something a little more, well, me. I've been obsessed with gold these past few months, so this look is probably the perfect fit for me(plus I think that it would look amazing with my hair). 
This Oscar de la Renta gown is simply out of this world. A real work of art that belongs more to a museum than inside someone's closet. It's so gorgeous and mysterious and embraces all the golden accents without looking tacky. The shoes had to be Jimmy Choo, since he's one of the few that can make all that shiny material look chic and expensive.That mask from etsy gives that air of an old venetian ball to the look. The Versace earrings blend perfectly with the italian vibe of the costume somehow without being overwhelming. I think that the Trick-Treat Charlotte Olympia clutch was made for this look, and it kinda balances the whole gold thing. Gold nails by Guerlain and golden liner by Urban Decay and we are good to go!
I am absolutely in love with this outfit and I really wish I could afford it. All together the pieces cost almost 15.000€ which is beyond the limit of "out of reach". But, you know, weird things happen on Halloween, so maybe my fairy-god-mother will show and transform me into the Queen of Gold with her magic wand.
If not, consider this look as a tribute to the late Oscar de la Renta. May this incredibly talented man rest in peace.
What do you guys think of my Halloween look? What was your costume this year?
ps. this is a photo I made specially for the day(sorry) XD

FASHION WEEK INSTA-DIARY

Hey guys! How are you?? I'm so happy that this week is finally coming to an end, because I really need some rest. Here in Greece, was a national holiday, but I didn't stay in and relax like normal people did. You see, I had to go to fashion week.
Those of you who have been to one probably understand what I'm talking about. It's that mix of feelings where you really want to go and see all the fashion shows, but on the other hand, you just want to stay in bed and burn your heels.
Let's be honest, I am tired, but I truly had an amazing time. I met new people (some of them knew my blog #OMG) and I got to be surrounded by fashion, which is kind of rare in my everyday life. The ones that follow me on instagram, obviously noticed that I was posting like crazy these past few days. 
So, I thought that instead of a boring outfit post, I should show you Athens Exclusive Designers Week, through my point of view.
You know that feeling when you realise that a big event is tomorrow and you still haven't figured out what to wear? Jewelry is a very important part of my look, and I think that the right combo can really make the difference. {FIY I ended up wearing most of these the first day...oops^^}
I got new last minute business cards specially made for fashion week. I love the way they turned out! ps. I gave that necklace to my bestie to wear at axdw.
 Just a tired, blurry mess, which is exactly what I felt like when I came home the first day.
Arm candy and a bold lip(and the perfect wing that you can't see) for day1...what else?
I'm so thrilled every time I get to sit in the second or the front row because I can totally see all the details-and take awesome photos- and it really feels like it's just me and the model there.
One of the prettiest models, or so my friend who is a professional makeup artist says, of axdw in one of the most chic and elegant dresses we saw.
Vassilis Zoulias presented gorgeous 50's and 60's lines and added plenty of color. Sure works for me ^*
This show reminded me(and the rest of the people there) of the italian designers. Especially the jewelry were just so D&G!
All I wore under my strict blazer was a lace bralet. It goes without saying that my blazer was fully buttoned at all times.
The first day of fashion week was also my bestie's bday so you can guess we went a little cray-cray there. That's just normal behaviour for us though XD
"Feel your heart" program by Coca Cola light. What better thing to do than support the health of women's heart? #wecandothis
My awesome pass that really makes people look at me in a different way. It makes me feel so professional.
I've been obsessed with this hairstyle ever since I saw it on the runway. I even recreated it at home(successfully!)
The white angels at the Kathy Heyndels show were either brides or cousins of Elsa from Frozen.
The black ones had a more hipster vibe.
One of the best shows of the season hands down!
Just me once again blending in the fashion crowd. [random people passing behind me] I'm seriously in love with my outfit from that day.
Just cause it wouldn't be fashion week without delicious drinks for the tired bloggers. 
Oh axdw I'm gonna miss you until next year! Thank you all, my fashion friends/designers/idk...for the great memories and experiences! xx
