What a beautiful, warm and sunny day was last Sunday here in Athens - fyi that was 9th November... Every now and then, I have been raving about how lucky I am to be living in one of the most beautiful countries on this planet and I am pretty sure no one can argue that. Since it was such a lovely morning, the Duke and I decided to go for a walk before lunch, at the National Museum, so I put on my brand new white tulle skirt, my heels and my floppy hat.
Many people think that I am only wearing tutus and hats for photoshootings. Sorry to ruin this for you, but I dress like that almost every day! Yes, this is how I feel comfortable, this is how I am myself. Blogging was extremely liberating for me in many aspects of my life and personality and dressing is on top.
Is there something you want to wear but you don't dare because you care too much about what other people my say or think? (haha, that actually rhymed!)

My eyebrows don't look like Cara Delevingne's... On the contrary, they are very blonde, maybe a tone lighter than my hair (!), they are quite thin and almost invisible! When I was 20, a (younger) friend of mine took the initiative to give them a shape, without plucking them too much, and until a year ago I was only brushing them every now and then with a transparent brow gel from Sephora.
Then I met Benefit Cosmetics and that changed everything!!
First, I bought the gel, speed Brow, which I liked better than my previous one, because it lasted longer and my eyebrows stayed in place til the end of the day!
Then, I dared to replace speed Brow with the colored brow gel, gimme BROW, in light/medium. My eyebrows not only stayed in place but also looked shaped!
Finally, I added the instant BROW pencil, also in light, and for almost a year now the last two are on my daily makeup routine! I never go out without wearing them, those two and my mascara!
And because words are not enough when talking about makeup, I wanted to share with you a quick selfie I took today while putting on my makeup. The one on the right is naked... The other on the left is clearly separated from the eye, makes it look bigger and defines the shape of my face better. So now you know exactly what I am talking about!
Have you ever tried Benefit's eyebrow products? Did you like them?

I am attracted by cats, their wild spirit and the need to be free, but at the same time so cute and cuddly and lovable! So, I had no second thoughts how to accessorize my adorable, covered in hearts trench coat; it had to be cats, right?
And they also had to be black cats, because I don't believe in bad omens. I believe in wrong choices and bad timing, but no way a black cat, an innocent creature for Christ's sake, can ruin my day!

Thousands of women are being proposed to marriage every single day. Even now, that times are difficult and money is short, many of us think of our wedding day as a very special and memorable day that we want to look our best. And here I come for the rescue, with the help of ASOS, of course...
Needless to say that these are NOT the typical wedding gowns, with tons of tulle and gemstones or trains of silk and covered in lace, but everyday affordable dresses that you don't need to spend a fortune to look fantabulous that very special day!!
See my picks below and let me now if you need more tips or styles or inspiration, I will be more than happy to help =)
