I’m not the romantic type and this is something that my boyfriend can definitely tell you! But August’s full moon has always given me this weird vibe,making more of a dreamer. Last year we went to Acropolis to watch it but I hated it because it was super crowded and you couldn’t find the slightest corner to sit down.
So this year we went to Stavros Niarchos foundation Cultural Center,for me one of Athens jewels! Of course there were a lot of people but because the Center is very big and the park is in levels it was much easier to enjoy the night!

So I know that most of you are next to a beach somewhere,sipping cocktails and Instagramming about it but I am at work, doing the night shift and thinking of the last vacation I took. Now this time I didn’t go on a roadtrip or in one of the islands, but instead we decided to go to my boyfriend’s country house,only an hour away from Attica. Although I had 6 hole days we felt so tired and didn’t really want to start looking for hotels and places to visit. In reality, I only needed to sleep and eat, and of course see the beautiful blue sea and relax.
Weather was not ideal, the beach bar had the music a little bit too loud for my taste at night and I managed to destroy one of my swimsuits, but still : It was a break from reality I really needed.
“When you love what you do, creativity and ideas are not hard to find”
These words by the founder of X Nihilo, Jenny Hsieh, describe their brand in the simplest yet most accurate way . I came across this brand few months ago as I was stalking one of my favorite bloggers, Figtny and immediately fell in love with it. You know me, I’m the definition of a bag person, but still I don’t just love all kinds of bags. Sure I’ll buy few trending pieces but I am all about the classic and simple lines, elegance and uniqueness. When first noticed X Nihilo I was impressed with their aesthetic : In a fashion world full of “busy” products their approach to simplicity was impressive. “Simple” elements tend to be considered boring in fashion, but these bags are the exact opposite!
What’s up crazy fashion babes? How is summer treating you so far? My days sound a lot like a Rihanna’s song (work work work work work) but I enjoy meeting all these new people everyday. Earlier this month we took our second roadtrip for the summer and it was just great! Turns out roadtriping is my new favorite way to travel,although it needs more time if you decide to leave your country too.
Anyway,this time we went to Methoni,which is around 300klm away from Athens,in Peloponnesus. It’s not one of the most touristic areas of Greece and I really love that cause you can always find nice hotels in good prices and home cooked food.
On our first day we decided to stop to Polylimnio waterfalls. This has to be one of the most beautiful places in Greece I’ve even been: nature at its finest and small crystal green lakes scattered everywhere. It is quite the walk,with some occasional light climbing, so make sure you have nice shoes with you! I was wearing slippers so I had some hard time in few parts of the climb but is was still manageable. We spent about two hours in the area and still didn’t see the half of it so if you’re in for the trip make sure you have a lot of time and supples (water,swimsuit,shoes,hats and sunblock!).

while reading this post I’ll be on my way for my next adventure (a.k.a. road trip baby!!!) so make sure you stop by my Insta!
Anywayz, as you may have seen in my ” products I tried this month” post I have put to the test three serums from The Ordinary. Keep in mind that it is the first time trying their products and since serums are a necessity nowadays I’m not looking for a product that it’s “just OK”.
I placed my order form Deciem, which sells several brands, and their fast shipping and nice packaging is definitely making me order form them again in the future and maybe trying few more brands too.
Now I really wanted to try their serums as I’ve seen so many good reviews online. I placed my order strategically, getting one treatment for hair and skin, one anti-aging serum and one the dark spots.
Happy June everyone! First official month of summer and obviously this is the time to try all kinds of new products. So for ya I have brand new face masks, serums and hair care products!
First of all, my one true cosmetics love, Korres: Their new package for face masks is so adorable! The products are still amazing but the new package is making them ideal for travelling! you can carry them with you all the time, each cube has enough products for one generous application so its a win-win!
