For the second time I need to state my full support and admiration for Mrs Marina Vernicos and Creaid. For those reading for the first time about it,Creaid is a non profitable organization dedicated to help those in need and raise awareness in order to relieve weak social groups.
Each action of Creaid has an artistic side too. Their second fundraising event is called “Designer Lights” and all the funds raised will be used to create a playground for Athens General Children’s Hospital.
Greek designers,architects and artists were invited to design their own light. All items will be auctioned online and will be presented in an exhibition until April 10th in Athens.
Best of luck to Creaid’s second event! Please visit the website and make sure you bid on your favorite (I personally cannot decide which I love most!) item and support Creaid’s work!
I consider myself a very sensitive person when it comes to those in need. I always participate in projects and love to spread joy to others. That’s why from the moment I found out about CREAID I wanted to help!
CREAID is a newly established non profit organization oriented in the mutual respect and human dignity. You see, the fundamental meaning of helping is originally respect and understand the differences between (equal) individuals. Only when we achieve that we can truly understand the needs of others and help.
So I was with my boyfriend for coffee the other day and I girl walked in. I saw her and just said ” why can’t I just look like her?”.
That has to be a question you’ve all asked yourselves at least once,right?
So why does that happen? Why we see some random person on the street and get so envious that our confidence goes down the sink?
After my jealousy outbreak my boyfriend pointed that this girl wasn’t as pretty as I thought. And right at this moment it hit me: It was an ordinary girl! I thought she was skinny but in reality she wasn’t slimmer than me. Ok,she was taller but the high heels she was wearing were the ones making her looking like a model!
It’s finally February ,we’re done with the holidays so it’s time to finally focus and start planning this year. The past few weeks I have been wondering about my future and my goals. Are they realistic? Am I a dreamer or have I settled for less than I could have? These questions troubled me for some time. But then I realized it’s all in my head. Not just these troubling thoughts, but their solutions too!
You can be whoever you wanna be. I can be whoever I wanna be! But you have to start now! Time flies so quickly so you’d better hurry!
Fashion is a brutal industry. Designers have to “fight” each other for the best piece of the market. Commercial brands fight over store locations and prices. And the materials it-selves are sometimes environmental unfriendly. But there are still plenty of things we can do to help the environment and the society.
There is something unique about Tyra. That girl has something remarkable and I’m not only talking about her style. It’s one of those rare women who can change your perspective once you notice them.
I never had a false idea about models. Sure there are beautiful women but still I always understood how hard most of them work for that beauty. I am also well aware of the fact that beauty comes and goes..
So the reason why I admire Tyra so much is her ability to adjust and evolve. After her glorious modeling career (remember that she modeled during the greatest era of modeling with all the other supermodels) she didn’t just rest. University degree- and not just from any university! Harvard ladies!- tv shows, magazines, books, photography, singing, publication group and so much more! It is amazing how talented some people can be.
But it’s not just her talent that I admire.
This is one of those days where I don’t want to present to you nothing else but myself. And this is because I’ve felt so much of your love and support this week that I feel the need to express my gratitude towards all you wonderful people filling me with so much joy! I might sound mellow,but it’s true!!
Yes, I get it why a Hollywood celebrity, a global pop singer or even I high profile politician might need a personal stylish.
But for the rest of us common people that might not be so necessary!
I have always found myself looking at magazines and complaining “why she looks so gorgeous and I can’t” or “if I had her assistants I would look as amazing as she does”, and I wasn’t really doing anything about it.
Obviously I never hired a stylist: I just became my personal one!
For quite sometime I was feeling awful about myself. Whether it was my weight (although I never weighed more than 53kg), or my hair or my style. I began to love fashion a long time ago. Although I had a good eye for looks I never tried any of my ideas. Instead I kept going shopping with my friends and I was creating looks for them. I never thought I deserved any of these.
No, I didn’t have any mental conditions, I wasn’t depressed or anything. I was just brainwashed by tv and the hole celebrity looks I got to see in magazines. I was a normal girl but I was led to believe I wasn’t even a mediocre looking one!
I know many of you young girls out there feel the same. You see movie stars or singers looking great almost effortlessly and you feel you don’t even matter.
Fashion is art. Is the expression of your personality, your mood and your culture. From time to time it may change- for the better or the worse. Fashion can be a lot of things but it doesn’t have to be one: forced. Nowadays it’s common for young girls to just follow a celebrity style. This is wrong. Be yourself! Yes,get ideas from celebrities, get inspiration. But don’t just copy someone. Be you, be true to yourself.
You don’t have to spend tons of money in order to be beautiful and trendy and in fashion. Use smart ways and solutions to save money and time. Don’t just be a fashion victim and shop everything you see.
