Prigipo : Jewelry for the princess next door..

Greek language is very complicated. We have words that can describe the simplest thing and the most complicated emotions. And when we don’t have a word we can sure invent it!! 

This is exactly what happened with “Prigipo”…

The verb itself does not exist. The noun “Prigipissa” means princess in Greek so the ladies came up with their own verb.The story would have stopped right there but Prigipo turned out to be more than just a brand..

Their jewelry have a classic finesse that is hard to find in most modern jewelry lines. Elegant,simple,classy with a splash of color and playfulness. This brand managed to be loved very quickly and for all the right reasons.

Since 2004 Prigipo has moved a long way, expanding the brand and building a very strong connection with their clients.

You can immediately feel the vibe the moment you enter their showroom in Athens. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and after few minutes there it’s like chatting with a friend rather than a person you just met. Everyone was so helpful and even though we messed up with their displays trying to take photos we didn’t get in trouble! We even got a chance to see their bridal collection, but that’s a story for another post..

Τheir latest collection is called  “Resonance” and it’s a celebration of color and joy. It is consisted of earrings, necklaces and bracelets, all handmade and very unique. Each piece, carefully handcrafted, is telling a story: The story of a woman strong but elegant, that loves to travel but stays grounded.

Of course you can find most of their classic pieces from previous collections, such as their signature Crown rings, in gold,silver and rose gold.

Collection 3 by X Nihilo (a.k.a. my latest obsession)

“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!

Celia Kritharioti @The Ritz, Salon Vendome

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!

Products I’ve tried (and loved) this month

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! 

Kielh’s

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!
