“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!
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!
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!
hey guys!! Happy Holidays to everyone!
I’m so excited today for two main reasons : First of all cause I have some days off and I’m gonna be spending New Years Eve with my boyfriend, and secondly because we planned a Secret Santa at work and I got an amazing gift!! :)Now you know I tend to share my (beauty) secrets with ya but I actually never asked who my secret Santa was and it doesn’t really matter anyway cause just the fact that we all went for it and bought things for one another tells A LOT about how well we work together!
Hey darlings!! How are you?? Well I have to tell you I’ve been super excited and anxious about holidays this year. First of all,this year I will be working on Christmas Day but I have planned early holiday vacations in the beginning of December and again in January. So I’m really looking forward! Most importantly,I’m leaving for my first trip while I will be getting my Xmas bonus (plus the paycheck!!) so that leaves me with a good budget this year for beauty buys!! And boy do I have a list!!! 🙂 check out my holidays beauty wish list!!
Estée Lauder double wear maximum coverage camouflage
I’ve been dying to get my hands on the maximum coverage double wear foundation! Medium coverage is very good too but this year I want to try something a little more drastic so it seems the ideal option
