Konjac sponge review

Ok, all Asian related beauty products are always high in my shopping list! I have been using Chinese beauty masks over the years and I always find them helpful for my prone skin complexion. So obviously a MEGA beauty trend from Korea could not stay untested!!

The Konjac is a sponge that when dry is hard as rock. Its use is quite simple: you add warm water and your favorite cleanser and you massage your face. I have been using it for few weeks now,preferably in the shower to use the steam from the hot water to open my pores, and I do find it quite good! I find my skin more light,more clean and more vivid! I actually think that I tend to have less blackhead breaks around my nose! 

This is definitely one of the products I’ll keep using! Thanks Sephora for bringing it to Greece!!

AXDWeek : the Fashion Design Project

Well that was a nice surprise!! After the last AXDWEEK the online voting for the Fashion Design Project began. I had never voted for the previous ones but this time I was very curious so I saw all nominations and decided to vote. There were some pretty good designers competing but my eye caught a very feminine yet strong and edgy design. It reminded me of good old Alexander McQueen with a twist of Jason Wu. I had to vote for it!!
2 weeks later I found out that it had won! The design belongs to the talented Valia Kastrouni. Can’t wait to see her designs at the next AXDWEEK!!

6) Come Lace or shine

Lace is an old time classic that obviously is making a comeback the past few years. But from all the runways for 2016 it is obvious that we will be wearing a lot of lace this spring! I love it in pale colors and accessories!

MAC studio fix line review

I’ve been wanting to try MAC’s makeup line for quite some time now. While browsing their website I found that studio fix fluid fond de teint was the makeup that would fit best my criteria.
I began using the makeup and the powder plus foundation in the middle of August. I instantly noticed how easily I could apply it and of course how well it would last for many hours! At first I got the C4,5 which is a bit dark,as my skin was still suntanned! Now I use the C3,5 and usually mixing it a bit with the old one to create a more natural color!
I have to tell you that for me this line can only be compared to the Dermablend line from Vichy! From all the makeups I’ve tried over the years these two are the only ones that provide good coverage but also benefit the skin as they don’t damage it at all!

Lauren Conrad’s first NYFW show

Now that was a surprise!! I’ve been following Lauren’s career since the days of “the Hills”(don’t judge, it was fun to watch and I ways waaayy younger back then!!).

Her first designing attempts were quite good and I always liked her style cause it had a certain vibe,almost like it was from another time.

But this time she outran herself! Her very first NY Fashion Show was to die for! I loved every single look: the color palette,the structures, the lines. I mean,what’s not to love??

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!

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.
