Tatoi Summer Palaces: A day in the woods

Tatoi Summer Palace is the former summer residency of former Greek Royal Family. It is located in mount Parnitha and it is in a densely wooded area.The Palace is now abandoned but the property is still in pretty good shape. Buildings are not habitable obviously but its a great place for a walk, bike riding or a picnic!

January had been a very busy and difficult month with work and the University so this week on my (one and only) day off we decided to visit the area. Weather was great so no need for  heavy coats,I was able to pass the hole day with a sweater and a boyfriend blazer. Walking is a great exercise,despite my boyfriend’s complains on the matter.

Mia Aesthetics Beauty salon

One of the best things about blogging is going to all these fabulous events and meeting incredible people. The other day I attended the “Mia Aesthetics” event and boy I am ecstatic! The venue is great (right in the center of Athens, across Megaro Mousikis), the place looks amazing and the staff is THE TOP! Mia is a fantastic person, a real professional that knows her job so well that you immediately trust her. Her methods are insanely good  -we saw a live demonstration of wrinkle removal and the results where crazyyyyy!-  and the quality of the provided services are top of the line: Micropigmentation, Permanent make up, lashes, plasma treatments are some of the main services of Mia Aesthetics, and when you know that Mia has been awarded the Quality Riso Award for “Best Micropigmentation Techniques” you know you are in good hands!

We also saw a demonstration of lash extensions placement and when I saw the results I knew I am getting it very very soon (I actually have an appointment for lash lifting so I’m gonna share more soon, plus pics!).

For those living in EU you are in luck, as Mia Aesthetics also has a beauty salon in Wetzlar, Germany and also collaborations in Austria and Switzerland. So make sure you stop by their website and check all the available treatments!

SAG Awards Red Carpet

Hey Ladies!It’s Red Carpet season and SAG Awards has given as sooo many nice appearances!Today I’m sharing my favorite looks from the event!

 

Holly Hunter

Gold is the color of luxury, but sometimes it can look dated. That is not the case at all, as Holly’s Paule Ka gold gown looked amazing! I love the simplicity of the design and of course the pockets!

Allison Williams

Everyone is talking about her drugstore makeup for the event but I have to say how much I love her dress! This hole 20’s vibe was so good in this Ralph & Russo gown! Red lipstick is a must in these cases (which by know we all know it is from Avon). My favorite thing about the look is the ear cuff she was wearing, giving a rock twist to this otherwise very elegant look.

How to take care of your faux eyelashes

Friday fun day darlings and this is a post for all of you getting ready to party this weekend!

I know like me most of you follow couple (in my case dozens) of beauty Youtubers and you check regularly for all the makeup tutorials. And yes, fake lashes are a must and will always be a must simply because you cannot create a more fabulous look without them!

While most of the beauty posts related to lashes have to do with how to chose a brand or how to wear them I decided that another post is a bit more important: How to care for your lashes in order to keep them nice and clean and usable for the longest time possible!

Chrissy Teigen

Needless to say she is THE most favorite person of mine to follow on social media. Her humor and intelligence is something you cannot just ignore. She has a beautiful family (now expecting baby no 2), she is always brutally honest and of course gorgeous. There are not enough adjectives to describe Chrissy and that trust me, is a compliment!

Chrissy’s style has evolved through the years but the bottom line is: it has always been flawless. The fact that she doesn’t really care about others’ opinion is why I think she always enjoys dressing up. Her airport style is by far my favorite although she rarely ditches her heels for flats (which is something I cannot do for a flight!!!).

Golden Globes: The “Black” Red Carpet

This was definitely one of the most political and personal Golden Globes ever. Many actresses wore black gowns and quite few actors also, in order to  support the Time’s Up movement standing in solidarity with victims of sexual assault and harassment.Although in my personal opinion this action (and the hole movement’s publicity) is so long over due it is “better” late than never.The entire event was  dominated by the #timesup movement with plenty celebrities giving empowering speeches on the matter.

Anyways, the red carpet was filled with amazing gowns and here are some of the ladies and outfits that popped my eye this year!!

Kelly Clarkson
