If you’re not living in Mars, or any of the seven newly NASA discovered planets, then you know the No1 for this Spring:Pink.
Zara made it pretty clear that we’re gonna be seeing it A LOT, and we all know that Zara is a trend setter among the retailers ( Hell, if Olivia can wear TLZ looks then who Am I to speak, right?). All jokes aside, pink has always been a Spring favorite, this year though we are talking about a more bold and vivid pink. From Culottes trousers, to shoes and trench coats, pink is here once again to help you make a statement.
Hey everyone! Its finally February ( I thought January would never end!!!) and I’ve been keeping my promise so far to post more often. This time I want to share with you the highlight of the previous month: My long weekend trip to Sofia. So if you think about it, I have already fulfill two of my New Years Resolutions, posting and travelling! Lets hope I’ll stick with both for the rest of the year too! 😛
Anyway, I had booked and planned the trips weeks in advance ( You Virgos out there know how we enjoy planning) so we manage to get a 5* Hotel in a pretty good price! We stayed at the Anel Hotel in the center of Sofia, so commuting was quite easy. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, the spa is great and the buffet delicious!!
For those reading me from abroad this name might sound a bit unfamiliar. For Greeks though this couture house has been a synonym to elegance and style for many years. I had the luck to see few runway shows from Celia Kritharioti in Athens over the years and I always like the aesthetic and that chic vibe. Even the brand’s prêt a porter line “5226” has a style you can’t easily ignore.
So the designer’s long dream to show in Paris became a reality last week, when she showed one of her dreamiest collections so far. At Salon Vendome in The Ritz the House showed their collection for SS17 “Les Fleurs du bien” . Using flowers, nature and romance as inspiration Celia created a collection that looked like a fairy tale in the Greek islands. Baby blue, light pink but also bright yellow and white were the main colors of the collection. The designer played with structures, texture and fabrics to create a variety of looks, one better than the other!
Red Carpet season is always an exciting time for me. So many stunning ladies rocking the Red Carpet. Especially this year’s SAG Awards, having that Political flavor, made my day and felt really proud for some of these ladies.Now enough with the Politics, lets see the dresses that stole the spotlight this time!
My hero and one of my favorite celebrities Taraiji P Henson wore a dreamy Reem Acra gown and for me wins in the best dressed category of the evening!
He guys! What’s up!! What have you been up to? I’ve had a pretty good start of 2017 with couple of days off and a short trip to Sofia (post will be up in few days with pics!). I’ve also tried some new beauty products and have changed a lot my beauty routine lately (getting older and wiser..!!).
So here are the products I loved and can recommend for ya!
I can’t describe with words how happy and satisfied I’m with the entire line. Although my skin is oily, during winter -and especially when I have a cold- I find my skin too dry and dawl. So this was a very nice surprise as with the ultra day cream I could actually feeling the hydration all day long,even after 8h of hard work. The lip balm is also great. I found the application a bit bizarre at first (you need to squeeze the product and then use your fingers to apply) but is is actually not that bad as you can control the amount of product you use. The body lotion is one of the brand’s best sellers and for a good reason! All and all I’ve been pretty satisfied with all the products I’ve tried from Kielh’s and I also got a nice sample sized night serum as a gift and been planning on buying the product soon!
First Red Carpet of the year and I think 2017 is going to be a great year for fashion! Although it’s still January we saw bright colors and summer textures in most of the gowns. Very few looks were not worth mentioning – with so few no-nos finally!! – while it was the first time that it was sooo hard to pick my favorite looks! It was obvious that we had some winning colors as yellow stole the spotlight with many ladies having a preference for it this year.
Michael Kors was the winning designer of this year’s red carpet in my humble opinion, as two of his looks were in my top 10 looks of the night,one of them in yellow! Viola Devis wore this vivid yellow gown while Sienna Miller showed her incredible figure in this white dress.
