SPRING 2015 BEAUTY ESSENTIALS♡

Spring 2015 Beauty Essentials♥
Hello guys! How are you? Holidays are over now, so how good can you really be right? No! There are still plenty of things to be happy about. And, of course, one of them is spring! What better thing than blossoms and amazing colors and wonderful weather? It seems like it's time to change that makeup bag of yours! 
As always, I got your back. I put together a list with all the beauty holy grails that will keep you satisfied and looking flawless.
  • First, I think that a BB cream is the best option for spring. It offers good coverage, while protecting your skin and having a decent SPF, without looking cakey. Find the one that suits you the best and I'm sure it will become your biggest necessity.
  • I always like to smell good and this Victoria's Secret set is just perfect because it offers lotion and cream and body mist. What more do you need?
  • Rosy flushed cheeks are always a must and I believe that Nasrs "orgasm" is too!
  • Then of course you need a lip balm because unfortunately lips still get chapped. Whether it's EOS or Baby Lips or anything else you like, it works!
  • I have been obsessing over liquified lipstick for like a year now and I think that this one by Too Faced in "Melted Peony" is just perfect for spring. 
  • I think I've heard like a zillion people talking about the Roller Lash mascara by Benefit and I believe it's super good too. Who's ready for some spring va-va-voom?
  • Then, you obviously need powder even if you don't have oily skin. Powder just makes your makeup stay on longer and will prevent your spring sweat from ruining it. 
  • When it comes to eyeshadow I like to keep it simple and neutral during spring. No more black smokey eyes, I'm afraid XD
  • I am probably one of the biggest fans of dark nails, but in springtime I just can't get enough of the dreamy, romantic pastels.
  • Since the weather is getting warmer and your pants and dresses are getting shorter, a shaving cream is a total must-have, especially if you shave everyday like I do.
  • Lastly, you need a spring themed makeup bag to brighten up your bag and your mood!
So, these are my beauty essentials for spring! If you want to check out some SPRING FASHION ESSENTIALS then you should totally visit Amy's blog fashionglaze.blogspot.co.uk This post was a collab with her. Her blog is so cute♡
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! What are your spring essentials? Let me know in the comments below♥

MY GREEK LITTLE PARADISE: EASTER BY THE SEA

Hey guys! Happy Easter again! Like I told you in my last post, here we celebrated this past weekend. I honestly had such an amazing time these two days.
I took some time off from all the studying and stressing and got to relax and have fun with my family and friends. These photos here are from Sunday, when we went on a road trip. It's quite of a long drive to a tavern we go to this time every year and we get to spend the entire day at different places near the sea. So, what you see here are four different beaches and a lake near the beach. 
Going at the beach, especially during this time of the year is like therapy to me. Taking long walks, sitting on the cliffs and just breathing. Unfortunately living in a big city sometimes makes me feel like I can't breathe. Also, feeling the sun on my skin for a change was a great break from studying and staying inside all day. So, long story short, I got to recharge my batteries and feel happy for a little while^^
What did you guys do this weekend? Have you ever been at any of these places? Let me know in the comments below♥

COACHELLA 2015

Coachella #1
Hello my loves! How are you? I hope you had a great Easter, those of you who celebrate it. Here we celebrate it this weekend. But this weekend, another incredible celebration will also happen. Right in the desert, in California. Lots of music, lots of amazing people(+celebs) and, as always, lots of fashion. Probably one of the most famous music festivals at the moment. Yes, I'm talking about Coachella, and yes you already figured from the title XD!
Since, I can't go this year-fingers crossed for 2016-I thought I should put together some looks for each of the 3 days. Let's be honest here. It's half seeing all your favorite artists and half putting together the perfect outfit to do so. Although I've watched like a zillion post and videos like that, when it came to creating the looks I started improvising.
For the first day(header) I went for a pretty basic look. I combined pieces you can wear pretty much everyday and I took it one step further with the accessories. I absolutely love the color blocking and I think that the plain crop top and the highwaisted denim make the perfect canvas for you to go crazy. Florals and neon, statement pieces with tribal and hippie accents and, of course, headwear. A lip and cheek stain is probably the best choice you can make for the dessert.

For day #2 I ditched all the girly and romantic stuff and I went for chill hippie. I love how all the prints look mixed together. It's a black and white outfit, but I think it's not your ordinary safe option. The bag is super fun and goes great with the rainbow lenses of the sunnies. The bindi looking headpiece is life♥

The third look is edgy yet elegant yet wtv. I am in love with this two piece although I know it won't be the most comfortable thing to wear at the festival. Flower crowns are just basic right now but I think it adds a lot to the look. I love the kinda western vibe of the whole outfit. I know, somehow I managed to incorporate fringe in all the looks #notsorry XD.
If you want more, and affordable, ideas of what to wear to a festival this season you can check out the latest collection for Coachella at the H&M's website.
Those were the three looks that I put together. I hope you guys like them. Let me know what you think and tell me your plans for festival season in the comments below
