My favorite moments from NYFW

It’s been a long week for New York,long and cold. But despite the weather it’s been a hot fashion week. Amazing first class designers and some first appearances that promise many more great shows to come. Can’t describe how jealous I am that I don’t live in New York.. So what I did was spending hours watching in live streaming the fashion shows from my iPad.
And boy that wasn’t easy! With the time difference sometimes I had to stay up until 2 am! But it’s definitely worth it!
Here are some of my favorite shows from NYFW fall 2014 :

Clinique products for oily skin!!

I first tried the Clinique anti-blemish solution products last summer. On my way to China I stopped by the duty free stores and I bought a Clinique kit. At first I wasn’t sure about the results,(as we all know there are no magic solutions for oily skin) but as the days where passing by I saw a great improvement on my skin.

Of course I’m not talking about miraculous change, but the difference after the third week became quite obvious not just to myself but also to others.
After my return I bought the entire anti-blemish solution series and I’ve been using it ever since! Mostly I enjoy the cleansing foam soap,which I use twice a day.

…Zylo

 

It is amazing how some people are so creative in unique ways. We’ve seen great achievements over the years in many aspects of our lives and especially in technology. So while most of us are trying to come up with a new technological idea, some people go back. They go back in time and find peace with the elements of nature.

Wood is a complex element. It takes time, knowledge, patience and love to create something from it. “Xylo” is the Greek word for wood, an element very difficult to work with, to control and master.

Hair colors for spring

I know I know it’s been a while since I last posted, but in my defense it’s been a busy week: first of all it’s fashion week and although I’m way far away from New York (crying right now) I try to keep an eye on what’s going on!

Also I dyed my hair yesterday! At first I wasn’t pleased with the result, as my hairdresser decided to improvise on my head! But then I checked out the must-try hair colors for 2014 and I realized that he might actually know what he’s doing!! 🙂
This year is mainly all about cold shades of blonde and red. Edgier colors, closer to grey for blondes and bronze for redhaired, longer lengths and more extreme ombrés will definitely play and important role. Darker browns is the safest choice if you don’t want to try something too extreme.

Happy New York Fashion Week!!

It’s official, New York fashion week is only few hours away. Very soon the cold and snowy streets of NY will be filled with designers, fashion editors, models, makeup artists, bloggers and celebrities enjoying the biggest celebration of fashion in the city. Not long after that, Fashion Week will “move” closer to my neighborhood: Paris, Milan and London.

I’m really looking forward today for BCBG Max Azria and Desiqual and
Diane Von Furstenberg and DKNY on Sunday.
Don’t miss Tory Burch on the 11th and Michael Kors on the 12th.

But mainly I’m curious about all the new designers that will participate in fashion week this time! Looking forward seeing really amazing couture this week!!

Despicable Me..

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.
