Summer Lookbook 2013

[more…]

Hello my lovely scarlets, how have you been? Did you go on vacation? I did and it was so nice. I spent my summer holidays at Chania, as most summers of my life (I was born there also) and had an a
mazing time. I managed to film a few outfits so I made a video on my youtube channel for you to see. I have a few photos as
well, which I will post here and I’d love it if you would
see the video and tell me what you think about the outfits.

Γειά σας scarlets μου, τι κάνετε; Πήγατε διακοπούλες; Εγώ πήγα και ήταν τόσο ωραία. Έκανα τις διακοπές μου στα Χανια, όπως τα περισσότερα καλοκαίρια της ζωής μου (επίσης έχω γεννηθεί εκεί) και πέρασα εξαιρετικά. Κατάφερα να βιντεοσκοπήσω μερικά outfits και έφτιαξα ένα βίντεο για το κανάλι μου στο youtube. Έχω και μερικές φωτογραφίες, τις οποίες θα ποστάρω εδώ, αλλά θα ήθελα πολύ να δείτε το βίντεο και να μου πείτε τη γνώμη σας για τα outfits.

This is the 4rth look on my lookbook and it’s my favorite. I love this car and I wish it was mine! But remember this: don’t be surprised if someday you see me strolling the streets w
ith a classic beauty like this. It’s my dream to buy a classic vintage car, even older than this one (which is a 1973 Triumph MK3) and I believe I will….someday!
Αυτό είναι το 4ο look στο lookbook μου και είναι το αγαπημένο μου. Λατρεύω αυτό το αυτοκίνητο και θα ήθελα πολύ να είναι δικό μου! Αλλά να θυμάστε αυτό: μην παραξενευτείτε αν κάποια μέρα με δείτε να κυκ
λοφορώ με ένα κλασικό κομμάτι σαν αυτό. Είναι το όνειρό μου να αγοράσω ένα κλασικό vintage αυτοκίν
ητο, ακόμα πιο παλιό από αυτό (το οποίο είναι ένα Triumph MK3 του 1973) και πιστεύω οτι θα το καταφέρω…κάποτε!
For the rest of the outfits, please check out my video:

Lets stretch her legs (my new Canon 40D)

Last week I finally got something that has been on my wish list for quite some time: a DSLR! It’s an older model, so it was used, but in mint condition. I haven’t had the chance to play with it the past few days, but today my brother and I went to Gazi in Athens and gave my new camera a try. I admit that it takes a lot of practicing to get a decent shot and it really helps having someone to show you the tricks.
I also found a manual of the Canon 40D on youtube, which was really helpful.
If you do buy a DSLR and have no idea how to use it, don’t worry, there is a lot of information online. My advice though, is to set it in Manual mode, because the whole point of getting a DSLR is to learn how to take good quality pictures!
(The photos of me were taken by my brother. the rest of the photos and the editing are by me)

(Vest: Bershka, Top: from random shop, Palazzo pants: ProdigyRed, Shoes: Adidas, Bag: Zara, Sunglasses: Rayban, Bracelts: H&M, DIY chain, DIY charm bracelet, Vintage silver bracelets)




Tomorrow it’s the FNO in Athens. Is anyone going? If yes, leave me a comment or email me and maybe we could meet up. 

I think I’ll wear my new ASOS dress and bag with a pair of nude lace up booties (unless I change my mind at the last minute!). What are you planning on wearing (for my Greek friends) or what did you wear at the FNO (for my international friends)?

Mr. Cabdriver!

Today the weather was magnificent, so I set out to go to the city centre for some shopping, visit a few thrift stores etc. I took the train because it’s almost impossible to park near Syntagma square, especially on a Saturday morning. On the way I started to feel a bit lightheaded and dizzy. It got worse and as soon as I left the train station I started feeling like I was about to faint. So I thought I should get back because I was in no condition to walk or do any shopping whatsoever. I got in a cab and told the driver to take me to my destination as soon as possible because I wasn’t feeling well. He said “with a woman like you I would even go to hell”!!! I ignored his remark and said please lets go, I feel very dizzy, but he continued and suggested that we go for a coffee so I will feel better and started asking me what’s my name, what I do for living, where I live etc.
OMG, was that guy for real? There I was, almost about to faint and he was hitting on me!!!
I had no choice but to get out and grab another taxi to take me home. Fortunately the other driver was no casanova!






Trench: Zara
T-shirt: gifted
Leggings: Tally Weijl
Ankle boots: unknown brand
Sunglasses: Rayban


Face: Rainbow matt finish make up, Mac full coverage (as concealer), Elf complexion perfection
Eyes: NYX green eyes palette, Grimas black eyeshadow, Korres black eyeliner, Max Factor masterpiece max mascara in black/brown
Cheeks: Elf contouring blush and bronzing powder
Lips: NYX lipstick in Indian pink

In case you’re wondering I feel better now and I’m guessing my blood pressure dropped and/or my iron levels must be very low again, that’s why I felt so dizzy and weak. So I’ll have to start taking iron supplements all over again!

I know I’ve been bad!

The correct title would be “New in”, but I thought I’d change it a bit since I have been making some purchases lately and I don’t want to use the same title over and over again. My excuse is: I’m a shopaholic (who me? naaa!).
OK, I have a better excuse: early birthday presents…to myself!
So I finally got around to buying a new pair of sunnies. Over the past few years my sunglasses were constantly getting smashed (a total of 3 lovely pairs ruined, and not by me!), which has left me with only one pair, my Rayban aviators that you’ve seen me wearing many times. At last I decided to “cast out the evil” that’s been haunting my poor sunglasses and buy a new pair. I really hope these ones will have a better fate. Knock on wood!
Anyway, I wanted a pair of Wayfarers for a while now and so I got this pair from the “Rare prints” collection, which has a black frame with a super cute button pins print on the inside. I absolutely adore them. I will take some close up photos and post them tomorrow.





Knit sweater/dress: Zara
Socks: Tally Weijl
Ankle boots: Office

Lips: NYX lipstick in Indian pink

I have a crafty/DIY question: these over-the-knee socks are too tight on my legs (the elastic part). Do you think I could cut the elastic band? But then I don’t know what will hold them in place. Have you had this problem with over-the-knee socks?

The piano scarf!

It’s funny how some clothes or accessories have a history of their own. This tartan scarf is almost as old as I am and I can’t even remember if I ever wore it when I was little. The only thing I remember about it is that we used it to cover the piano keys (I used to take piano lessons when I was a kid). I don’t know why the poor scarf had been condemned to such a fate! When we gave the piano away I decided to keep the scarf and have been saving it in my closet ever since. I think it was about time that little old scarf saw the light of day…

Today I was in such a hurry that I didn’t place my tripod correctly, so I cut off a bit of hair here and a bit of shoe there, lol!
