New addition to my hair routine : Fructis Grow Strong

It is very important to change your shampoo few times a year. Your hair get used to specific ingredients and if you use the same products constantly for long then you might notice some oiliness. As it was time to do that “time out” from my usual shampoo I stumble upon the new Fructis “Grow Strong” line. I decided to give it a go for few days but I loved it so much that I made it my No1 choice!!

Originally I loved the smell but after the second wash I noticed the difference in my hair! It was much easier to untangle,much smoother texture and a more healthy look in general! The hair mask is incredible and it’s officially my favorite hair mask for 2015!!
So what’s your fav shampoo?

5 easy steps to a perfect skin

All women worry about their skin at some point. Some are lucky enough not to face any serious issues but girls like me.. Well, we have to be extra careful with that! So here we’ve got my most useful (and simple) tricks towards a better skin!

1) makeup remover
That’s basic darlings and you know it!! Even if you’re really really tired don’t forget to remove your makeup! Ideally you won’t just be using the tissues that are so popular. It’s ok when you’re in a hurry but don’t get used to it. Try to use a nice cleansing soap or cream . Lotion after that is also essential to make sure your skin is truly clean and makeup free!
2) day and night cream
That’s my biggest problem of all! I’m usually in such a hurry that I forget about it. This is truly important though cause your skin needs hydration!! Apply cream before your makeup in the morning and after cleaning your face at night.

3) exfoliating mask
Once a week don’t forget to exfoliate. Especially if you have combination to oily skin it is important to help your skin clear the pores! I’m telling you,if you find the right exfoliating cream or mask for your skin you’ll have huge results!

4) water
It’s in every other post of mine so you’ve probably taken the hint by now!! Water is a life savior for your skin but also for the entire body! Especially while on vacations add few glasses of water to your routine. If you experience high heat then have one of these vaporizers with you and spray some water directly to your face! (Did that while in Tunisia on a camel cruise around the dessert and it worked like a charm!).
5) 8h sleep
No,this is not an excuse to lie down and take a nap. But a nice and relaxed sleep is very beneficial to your skin (not to mention your performance and your mood the next day!). Although it’s not always possible make sure you have once in a while a nice relaxing evening to yourself to pamper you and then have a good night sleep! You will feel rejuvenated in the morning and your skin will be glowing!!

5 Instagram accounts I can’t get enough this week 

1) sincerely Jules
For me the best street style blogger I’ve seen in a while! I love that she wears denim a lot and her looks are mainly casual so I can easily relate!

2) Margaret Zang 

I first found out about Margaret when started watching Australia’s fashion bloggers on E!. I really admire her for her photography skills and especially on how she chooses locations!

Essence pure skin: anti-shine mattifying gel cream review 

I’m always neglecting my skin. It’s sad but it’s true! So every now and then I have to do something drastic to tone it up a bit. Obviously I’m not recommending you to do the same! It’s always better preventing than running to save your skin! But if you are like me you will love this product! 
  
This light gel has a great texture and the skin is awesome after the use! As I’ve said many times I don’t believe in “miracle makers”. So I won’t tell you that if you use it the next day you’ll have the perfect skin. But I have to admit I found it very helpful! After only a few days I found my skin less oily and without that awful feeling of “dirt”. Yes, from time to time I still have breaks but that’s mainly cause I’m not committed with my treatment. If you you are better than I am at this I’m pretty sure you’ll have even better results!

My Big Greek Drama

I know I have kept this blog “light” and without many personal details on who I am and how I live(after all,this is a fashion blog!). But given the situation I’m now up against I wanted to share my thoughts..

I’m Greek. I’m 30 years old, i have a 3pages CV (bachelors degree,seminars,foreign languages,working experience in Greece and abroad) and I’m unemployed. The sad thing is I’m not the only one. There’s about one million people in Greece facing this. I’m considered lucky cause I have a family behind that can support me. In most cases this is not an option. There are families here that live just with the pension of an elder member. I can’t begin to describe the present situation in Greece.
When I entered university in 2003 I was like any other kid. I had dreams and high hopes.. Now I’m 30 and unemployed. I have a university degree,I’ve attended a dozen seminars,I’ve worked in several fields and I try my best always to learn something new.
When I graduated and couldn’t find a job I thought it was my fault. No,scratch that: I got convinced it was my fault. Year after year all these saviors came but things only got worse. Prime Ministers kept promising it’s the last time measures need to be taken but it was never the last time. It kinda felt like the women who get abused by their husbands. They always say it’s the last time and you always forgive them. Well that was it.
