The Right Heel For You


High heels can make your legs look long, lean and luscious. Unfortunately, they can also be quite uncomfortable if not chosen wisely. To avoid foot problems, you need to strike a balance between looks and comfort

Pretty Little Liars ("A" Theories)

Hello everyone! I guess many of you know my huge love for movies and TV series. Well, Pretty Little Liars is one of my obsessions! Since I started watching PLL , I always tried to read theories about who A is, who killed Alison, whether these two are related or even the same person and whether Alison is still alive. You may not have noticed, but the writers gives us lots of clues in every episode and here are some of them.

Avon Moroccan Argan Oil Review

Hello everyone! For a long time I wanted to buy the Moroccanoil but I thought it was rather expensive. That's why when I saw Avon launching a Moroccan Oil product I thought I should give it a try! The 30 ml bottle cost about 10 euros but when i bought it, it was on discount, so I spent about 6 euros.

What it claims to doNourishing serum suitable for all hair types and for use on wet or dry hair. Instant shine, smooth finish. Wieghtless movement and leaves no residue*. With Argan Oil and vitamin E. 30ml

Create Your Favorite Scented Body Lotion


Hello everyone! So recently  I thought that my body lotion should have the same scent with my perfume so that  my perfume might last longer. I new that a D&G the one body lotion would be pricey so I tried to find an other body lotion that would smell like my perfume, but unfortunately I didn't find any. A few days later I read somewhere that some body lotions are unscented, but again I couldn't find any of these in Greece.Lastly I came up with the idea that if I found a lightly scented body lotion and added some drops of my perfume it would be almost the same.I went to jumbo to buy an empty container and there I also found this Victoria body milk with a light scent of vanilla and guess what, vanilla is one of my perfume's base notes so I thought why not? For this "experiment" I wanted to use a D&G the one dupe which I had bought from a perfumery and not my "expensive D&G the one".

Red hair solution!



It is well known that red dyes have the largest color molecules and wash out quickly  The solution is cranberry juice! Cranberry juice can make red hair look temporarily more vibrant, you just have to pour it onto hair and let sit for five minutes (or longer for a more dramatic effect), then rinse.

Find a nude shade that suits you





Nude nails are a great trend this season! They have a great slimming, elongating effect. The key though is to find a shade that complements your skin tone . There is always a right way to wear nude so that it complements your skin tone right? Firstly take a look at the inside of your wrist to determine your complexion. If you see yellow undertones, try an opaque beige. If the color veers more toward pink, choose a sheer mauve. Another trick is when trying on a polish, look at the skin near the cuticle,If it appears to be reddish or gray the shade you’re wearing may not be the best one for you.

Essence haul

Hello everyone! Hondos in Patra finally brought the brand essence (thank god). I'd read lots of blogpost about essence products and that they had a great quality while they were really affordable. As soon as I found out that I didn't have to travel to Athens to buy them, I went to Hondos to give them a look but what I saw was an almost empty stand :O ! I asked the assistand and she told me that that's what had been happening with essence products ever since they brought them.Well these are the products I bought from the almost empty stand and they costed less than 25 euro...

I'M BACK

Hello bloggers..how you dooooin' (Joey's style)?? Well ,I have to tell you that I'm really sorry that I've been MIA for such a long time but blogging is mostly about being in a good mood. Last spring I wasn't really in a mood for blogging as I was having a really hard time, but thank god all these belong to the past and now I'm perfectly fine!!! After that, came my university exams and I had to study really hard ,so again...noooo time for blogging :/.As soon as my exams ended I went to my village for summer vacations and work...actually mostly work as my parents own a restaurant by the sea and I was working there as a waitress (that's actually what I do the last 7 summers :P) I had a great time there as always but the lack of internet connection didn't help much for blogging. Anyway, I'm back to my daily routine now and in a great mood to start blogging again!! yaaaaay!!!Here are some photos of my summer vacations with my besties...

see you soon...
xoxo
Vicky!

Rimmel London Starry-Eyed Lipstick Review

EN: I resently bought this Rimmel London lipstick and I'm so in love with it! I love dark lipstick but in this one I also liked the texture and the fact that it was long lasting but yet moisturizing! For a day makeup look i tend to apply it with my fingers to get a softer application, but for a night out makeup look, I apply it either with a brush or directly from the tube in order to achieve this deep burgundy color.

ΕΛ: Πρόσφατα αγόρασα αυτό το κραγιόν από τη Rimmel London και το έχω ερωτευτεί! Λατρεύω τα σκούρα κραγιόν αλλά σε αυτό μου άρεσε πάρα πολύ η υφή καθώς και το γεγονός ότι παρ' ότι διαρκούσε πολύ ήταν και ενυδατικό! Για ένα πρωινό μακιγιάζ το απλώνω με τα δάχτυλα μου έτσι ώστε να έχω ένα πιο απαλό αποτέλεσμα και για ένα βραδινό μακιγιάζ το απλώνω είτε με πινελάκι είτε απευθείας από τη συσκευασία, έτσι ώστε να πετύχω αυτό το βαθύ μπορντό χρώμα.

Garnier BB Cream Review





 EN: Hello everyone....well I suppose you've heard a lot about the new cream that Garnier launched a few months ago. So Garnier was kind enough to send me  her new cream in two shades so I could try it and review it to you. Unfortunately the darkest shade was thrown away by my mon together with the box because she thought that the box was empty (if you have a mom that in order to clean up throws away your stuff because she thinks they are useless, then you know what I'm talking about). So let's begin....

ΕΛ: Γεια σε όλους....υποθέτω ότι έχετε ακούσει πολλά για την νέα κρέμα που δημιούργησε η  Garnier πριν λίγους μήνες. Η Garnier λοιπόν ήταν αρκετά ευγενική και μου έστειλε την καινούρια κρέμα της, σε δύο αποχρώσεις, έτσι ώστε να τη δοκιμάσω και να σας πω τη γνώμη μου. Δυστυχώς την πιο σκούρα απόχρωση την πέταξε η μαμά μου μαζί με το κουτί, γιατί νόμιζε ότι το κουτί ήταν άδειο (αν έχετε μια μαμά, η οποία για να καθαρίσει πετάει τα πράγματα σας επειδή πιστεύει ότι είναι άχρηστα, τότε καταλαβαίνετε τι εννοώ). Ας αρχίσουμε λοιπόν...

MUFE Smoky Lash Mascara Review

EN: So I resently bought the Smoky Lash Mascara from MUFE. I wanted to try it for a while so i finally bought it!
What it claims to do: enhances lashes, gives exceptional volume,infinite lenght, ultimalte curl and it provides a long-lasting hold
My opinion: I am absolutely positive with all the above statements apart from the infinite lenght because almost every mascara gives such length to my lashes. What I liked most about it is the long-lasting hold!! Moreover I think that this is the best waterproof mascara i've tried so far because allthough it's waterproof and it doesn't smudge at all , I can easily take it off without having like a bunch of eyelashes pulled off together with the mascara. The only thing I don't like about it is the price, it costs around 20 euro, which is a bit pricey. On the following pictures you can see the brush and the aplication after one and after two coats

ΕΛ: Πρόσφατα αγόρασα την Smoky Lash Mascara από την MUFE. Ήθελα να την αγοράσω εδώ και καιρό και τελικά την πήρα!
Τι υποστηρίζει ότι κάνει: ενισχύει τις βλεφαρίδες, δίνει εξαιρετικό όγκο, άπειρο μήκος,τέλειες καμπύλες και μακρά διάρκεια
H γνώμη μου: Συμφωνώ απόλυτα με τα πιο πάνω εκτός από το ότι δίνει άπειρο μήκος γιατί σχεδόν κάθε μάσκαρα δίνει τέτοιο μήκος στις βλεφαρίδες μου. Αυτό που μου άρεσε περισσότερο σε αυτή τη μάσκαρα είναι η μακρά διάρκεια που προσφέρει!! Επίσης πιστεύω ότι είναι η πιο καλή αδιάβροχη μάσκαρα που έχω δοκιμάσει μέχρι τώρα, διότι παρά το γεγονός ότι είναι αδιάβροχη και δεν μουτζουρώνει καθόλου, μπορώ εύκολα να την αφαιρέσω χωρίς να χρειάζεται να αφαιρέσω μαζί με τη μάσκαρα και μια τούφα από βλεφαρίδες. Το μόνο πράγμα που δεν μου αρέσει και τόσο είναι η τιμή, καθώς κοστίζει γύρω στα 20 ευρώ, το οποίο εγώ τουλάχιστον θεωρώ λίγο ακριβό. Στις επόμενες εικόνες μπορείτε να δείτε το βουρτσάκι της καθώς και την εφαρμογή της ύστερα από μια και από δύο στρώσεις





ΕΝ: After one coat
ΕΛ: Μετά από μία στρώση

EN: After two coats
ΕΛ: Μετά από δύο στρώσεις
