Merry Christmas!



I hope this Christmas will be the best ever. i will actually spend it with family, which is just HUGE and I won't even have a moment for myself (unless I get "accidentally'' locked into the bedroom, of coarse, oopsy ;] ) Anyway, we'll all going to our holiday house in a random mountain, and cousins, aunts, uncles and my dear grandpa are dropping by, for the festive lunch, which consists of turkey beef and any treats you might think of. I might do a post later about the sweets we make at Christmas , all of them are just AMAZING!


Melomakarona and kourampiedes! lol
(my moms recipe)



Our x-mas tree

I am now going to help mum make chocolate trunk, another famous christmas sweet!
Have a Merry Merry Christmas everyone!
I'll be back with some proper posts, this is after all one of my my New year's resolutions!

I need christmas;)





So due to a flu outbreak in my school (it's crazy- almost 100 people are sick!), im on holiday for a week... I really needed this as I'm a very hard working girl. I can't even remember my life befoe preparation for these exams :( anyway, I only had two lessons today and now I found some time to blog...
So xmas is on the way, but it seems that
winter is not coming in Athens. Today it was 21 degrees and I heard tomorrow the temperature is rising! I mean it's november, come on!


I guess this is how were celebrating christmas
this year!

The problem is it can get quite chilly every night so I think I'm getting a bit under the weather...
i miss summer though... I'm dreaming of beaches and cocktails and ships... After all this effort I've put into my exams I feel deserve a good vacation...not quite there however.

Gina wants... tag

I just saw this lovely tag on marie-loves.blogspot.com and I just had to do it. So what you do is go to google and search for (your name) wants! You just have to post the five first results(if one does not make sense, just move to the next one) So here's mine!
Gina wants:
+to look perfect in the mirror
+to diaper her baby(lol!!!)
+to party like it's 1989 (what???)
+to save money so she can buy a new bike
+her music to offer a message of hope to a generation of youth that are in search of the truth(whatever)

Such a fun tag! I tag anyone who wants to learn a bit more about himself!!!

Sephora



Yesterday, as I was shopping with a girlfriend I realised I was really oily in the face... Seems like my normal foundation(Maybelline silky) is not suitable for the Athenian heat. That same afternoon I decided to head to the closest sephora to find a solution to this problem. And there it was! Special prices(5 to 15 euroes). I went into the shop and I was so surprised. They had finally organised it, as it used to be a mess. Even the girls were more polite than they usually are. I asked a girl there for a heat resistant make up formula and she suggested a tinted moisturizer. And I was so lucky the stila sheer colour was on sale.
It was half off(13,5 euroes from 27-great deal) and I was colormatched(by myself) as light. The saleswoman wanted to give me a slightly darker tone in case I got tanned, but knowing me well, there won't be a prolem. Here's a picture of me wearing it:



So far I really love it. It covers enough, has an spf 15 (not enough for such a pale faced girl as I am, but still ok) and is oil-free. At least it is not shimmery, so it does not make my spots stand out. I hope it will help me this summer!


I also found some nise products! I wanted this sephora vanilla perfumes since I first saw them two years ago. I love vanilla, but I never decided to buy them.



However there was only one box of the 7 travel sized vanillas left in the shop, and they were selling it for 3 euroes! Amazing price! Not much thought for me there. I feel like vanilla is a lovely smell, but not-so-suitable for summer, so I'm saving up on them.



My favourites are: vanilla vanilla(just vanilla), vanilla chocolate(not much for that) and vanilla caramel(they sound yummy).



I also bought the Body Shops new perfume called "White musk, white hot summer" yesterday. I really love that for summer, it's very fresh and fruity! And has the greatest bottle(look at the colours!)
This ummer I'm gonna smell really good, don't you think?

Me

I'm really trying to make a first post here. I hope the ones that are to come will be much more informative though.
Ok so 5 facts about me:
  • I live in sunny Athens(not so sunny now though, I think it's gonna rain)
  • I'm a natural blonde, although I've highlighted my hair(blode too-genious!)
  • I'm addicted to makeup since forever
  • I'm too mody, probably my mood has changed about 6 times since I started this post
  • I'm a chocaholic- no more to this....
