My make-up essentials

Hey friends! So today I wanted to share with you guys my make-up essentials. All of these products have found their way to my make-up bag and most of these I have bought over and over again when they have emptied!

Face : 

Lumene CC foundation; The reason I love it so much is because it's feels so light in your skin but at the same time it gives you the right coverage plus you wont be left with spots and color differences because it will blend with your own skin color! Plus it has SPF 20 :) This is actually my 3rd bottle! :) 

Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation; This is also a light foundation and has SPF 15 in it, which is great! It gives you fresh look and will brighten your face !

Lumene concealer; This is actually the first concealer I have tried and I fell in love with it so much.  I have really dark circles under my eyes and I was positively surprised how well this works! It gives me good coverage and I am actually having my 3rd tube at the moment! The negative thing is that they don't sell this here in Cyprus so I have to wait that my friends and family comes here so they can bring it to me with them!

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder; This is defo the best powder I have tried (with low money). I've been using this powder for years now and I wouldn't change it ! It's only 6euros and will last for a while so yeah, I highly recommend this one!

Nivea soft moisturizing cream;  Again this is one of the products I have been using for years and I wouldn't change this cream because it really softens my skin and moisturizes it!


Yves Saint Laurent Lip gloss in a shade 4 Fuchsia Vermeil ; Best lip gloss I've used. It's so smooth and lasts long time! also gives you a nice shine and it smells delicious! 

Tanya Burr lip gloss, Afrodite ; I usually don't like red lip glosses but this one is an exception! It doesn't give you the bright red effect, it's lighter and this one too, it lasts long and is not sticky! 

Maybelline Baby Lips ; I bet you've all heard about these goodies here! I have all the shades available in Cyprus and Finland plus I got the ones with black tube from Feelunique and once again I got all the shades available! I just love these lip palms they are so moisturizing and the ones with color they actually looks really nice on your lips! Love them!

Bourjois lipstick; I'm not a lipstick girl but I love Bourjois' lipsticks! They last on your lips and they give you a nice moisture at the same time! Highly recommend! 


Maybelline Volume Express mascara; I've been very happy with this mascara and I have been using this for maaany years! It makes my lashes look longer and thicker and it stays all day without making your under eyes look dark! And I have the non waterproof version but I got to say even when it rains this will stay on! So yeah I really recommend this one! And it's lump free :) 

H&M eyebrow liner; This is surprisingly good if you think that it costs less than 2 euros! I have been using this one for years and I am so happy with the way it makes my eyebrows look like! 

So there you go guys, my favorite beauty products that I keep purchasing over and over again! What are your beauty essentials ? :)

How to clean old sneakers & make them look like new again

Okay so it's spring time again and this means putting those winter boots back to your closet and it's time for sneakers! I don't know about you guys, but after a while for using sneakers no matter how careful you try to be they still get dirty :/ 

I recently wanted to restore my old Adidas Superstars (they are work in process at the moment!) because they were so dirty and got yellow, so I searched good ways to make them like new again. I will be posting about them later on IF and WHEN i will get them clean again!! But in the meanwhile, I cleaned my other Adidas sneakers. They are few years old and I haven't been wearing them much lately because they looked so dirty, but now, they look like new again! And while I was cleaning them I thought it would be nice to share my cleaning tip with you guys, I'm sure there's lots of you out there who would appreciate this quick, simple and  inexpensive tip so here we go! :) 

All you need is Miraclean stain remover ( I'm using Vileda ), water and pair of sneakers that you would like to clean! Wet the stain remover and start rubbing your shoes! You will immediately see the difference and it doesn't take longer than few minutes and volá, you have clean sneakers! Easy, 
right? :) 

Vileda's Miraclean Stain remover 


(I had already cleaned the right shoe, left shoe is still dirty! See the difference!!)


Looks much better right? :)

Saturday night @ the beach

Last Saturday night I went for a little car drive with my friends and before heading back to home we decided to go and sit on the beach. It was the warmest evening so far, so it was really nice to just sit and relax and breath the sea air! I just love the scent of the ocean!! 

Sooo because once again had Emily with me I asked her to take some outfit pictures, I know the pictures are not that great since it was night-time but I still liked them, hope you do too :) 

Jeans: Bershka
Sweater: Bershka
Fur vest: Tally Weijl
Shoes: H&M

Ohh btw, I started Atkins diet today (im doing only the first phase which is induction) so I will be posting my results after two weeks when it's over! But if you like I can do a meal posts and process post during the week, just let me know in the comment box !! :)

Hear the sound of the ocean

One thing I really love about living in Cyprus and specially here in Limassol is that sea is surrounding you everywhere. It doesn't matter if you live in a village or in the city you can still see the beautiful Mediterranean almost everywhere. 
Yesterday me and my boyfriend we went to the sea for a little walk. It was warm outside but the wind was pretty strong hence the air was chilly too! But it was still so beautiful; the sun was shining and the ocean was really blue. Me like it!

You can actually see how windy it was from the pictures!But loook at those waves, they look so cool!

It's all or nothing

Hey guys and happy spring time everyone! :) 

It's time for outfit post again! On Saturday I out to eat with my friends and fiiinally got someone with me who knows how to take pictures, so thank you Emily! :)x

It was too cold to pose without my jacket so sorry guys! Underneath my jacket I was wearing a white top with blue stripes and a black cardigan, so yeah my outfit was pretty black! 

As you might know from the previous outfit posts, my favorite jeans are the one from Top Shop. Oh well you never guess what happened to them! Few weeks ago the jeans ripped off from the left knee (and they were my only jeans that were not ripped so I got pretty sad).  That was a good excuse for me to go shopping some new jeans and once again the only jeans that I liked were from Top Shop so I got them! : )

I was also wearing my new jacket from Tally Weijl and my favorite boots that I got from Finland! And of course my new bag from DKNY! :) 

What do you think of my outfit? like it or not? :)
