What the sweet dreams are made of

Hello beauties:)

Today I wanted to share with you the favourite part of my house, the part where I spend most hours of my bedroom. Bed is the place to get rid of all negative emotions you might get through the day, to forget, to get rested and imagine that perfect life we dream about. Everybody who has enough and good sleep is much more happier and healthier. So, my bedroom and my bed are very important to me.
I keep my bedroom quite simple, I believe less is more. I prefer light colours for the house in general, my bedroom gets some sunlight, but I wish it was more. The walls are light green, the bed is white and the beddings I have are mostly white or beige. The bedding plays probably the most important role in relaxation process, it must be clean, soft and made out of natural materials. I prefer organic cotton and linen. I recently discovered luxury Parachute bedding (Parachute bedding) which is made from high quality cotton by the best Italian masters. And, of course, the price is very reasonable.

I am a fan of shabby chic, and as I live in the big house outside of the city I think it fits perfectly. The house is quite old and most of the rooms are full of old and sometimes antique things. As you can see I have 2 pictures of roses above the bed which I like very much. My photo frame is also shabby chic and my favourite picture in it.
One of the most  precious and valuable piece is the cover. It's absolutely hand made by my lovely mother. I cannot imagine how patient you must be to create something like that.
I always have candles in the room, scented and simple, bigger and smaller, different coloured ones. I burn them and feel happier:)

Another detail of the room that I absolutely adore is this lamp. I got it from Ikea around a year ago. I believe it fits perfectly into this interior. And of course carpet is something you definitely need for winter. I got this fluffy friend as a present, and now I cannot imagine my room without it.

My wardrobe is really vintage, or at least very old. But I like it. I keep most of my clothes in my bedroom (that I wear at this time of year). Sometimes I think I want to buy new wardrobe that can fit more staff, but after I think I do like this one:)

And also I keep my beauty items in my bedroom. Not all, but many. I have a small white table in the corner and usually I put my favourite make up, skincare and perfume items on it. For me the must is to have at least one flower in the room, at the moment I'm enjoying a red tulip.

I can spend hours checking Pinterest for new interior ideas. Looking at my board you can understand that I'm a big fan of shabby chic, flowers and light coloured rooms.

On a sad day

Hello beauties:)

I hope you are good. I'm a bit of disappointed because of the weather at my place. Is it only here in Northern Greece like this? Where is the warm spring in sunny Greece?
After 3 years living here, this was definitely the coldest winter and now...come on, spring:)

So, on a sad Sunday there is still a need of going out and having fun. On a day like that I decided to wear a blue knitted sweater from Pull&Bear. I feel great wearing this, so pretty and sexy. This grey day will not ruin it.

I wish you all a lot of sun this spring:)

Review: Insta Natural Youth Express Eye Gel

Hello Beauties:)

I wanted to share with you on this sunny day my recent discovery and probably new love from Insta Natural - Youth Express Eye Gel. I didn't purchase this product on my own, I was lucky to get it from the company for what I'm really grateful. But my review and opinion are absolutely honest, I'm not paid for writing good words about this gel on my blog.

The packaging is quite simple. But one of the best features of this product, in my opinion, is that it comes with a pump. I really enjoy using creams with pumps, I hate putting my fingers in the pot every time, thanks for pump Insta Natural!!!

The texture of the product is obviously gel. Usually I don't go for gel products cause they leave that disgusting sticky feeling. But not this one. This gel leaves the smoothing and soothing feeling on my skin.

If to talk about the main purpose of this product - help to reduce wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness - it does its job good. I did noticed my bad dark circles got less visible and in general my eye area looks more rested. I tried to put it all over my face instead of my usual moisturiser and it made the job very good. My skin became smooth, nice and moisturised.

The bottle has 50 ml which is huge for eye product. That's why I will use it as a day cream. I do recommend this product for those who is looking for light weight gel to use all over the face. It's perfect for my combination skin. I'm very careful with new products cause I get break outs very easily, this gel didn't break me out or what so ever. I do appreciate that this product is very natural, has no strong scent and was not animal tested.

Please check it out on Amazon here cause it's very inexpensive alternative for every day skincare.

Honey hair

Hello beauties!

Today I wanted to share with you some of my hair care products that I absolutely love. These are conditioner and spray-conditioner from L'Oreal Elvive Re-Nutrition line.

I want to start with the spray...I use it almost every day and love it. It makes my hair soft, shiny and the most important it helps brushing a lot! I have thin hair which gets hard to brush, this thing after spraying a bit - makes the brushing easy...and of course the scent is incredible. It has royal jelly and the smell I would describe as honey like but not too sweet and annoying,  just as it has to be - a real pleasure to feel it on the hair. It doesn't feel heavy at all, which is usually hard to find among drug store spray-conditioners.

The conditioner is pretty good. Again, it smells amazing in my opinion and does its main purpose - softens and nourishes my hair. The texture is creamy, but quite thick so a little goes a long way.

I recommend to try out this line for everybody, it does good job for its price. I believe this is my favourite Elvive (or Elseve) line. I keep going back to it for many years now. The shampoo is good as well, I was using it a while ago, at the moment I use some other shampoos.

Have you tried this line? What is your opinion?
Thank you for visiting my blog:)

Nails Inc. Worth the price?

Hello my beauties:)

Today I wanted to share with you 2 nail polishes from Nails Inc. This is not my recent purchase, I own them for quite a while as now these polishes come also in different packaging.

I have 2 summery shades - Haymarket (the teal) and Floral street (the white), the colours are absolutely stunning for me. The formula is great, thick, goes smoothly and there is no need for second coat. What I love the most about these nail polishes is the lasting power. It holds up very well for at least one week without top coat.

What I don't like about these polishes is the brush. It's a way too big, so it makes super uncomfortable to apply it. Also I noticed that after some time the bristles of the brush become like even more "fluffy" and harder to control, so I started to apply the polish with a random small brush that I had (maybe I just have too small nails and it's only me who finds it inconvenient to apply). Still I would prefer the brush to be smaller.
And of course the price... I am not the person who spends crazy money on nail polishes, to me 15 euro for a bottle is quite a lot. But as a conclusion I want to say that it's worth it. It's a great nail polish and the bottle will last - it doesn't dry out, and as I mentioned one coat is absolutely enough for a rich colour look. I think it's a good investment.

February favourites

Hello my beauties:) I wish you all to have a wonderful March and spring full of flowers and sunshine!

The shortest month of the year passed really fast, so spring finally... Today I want to share the beauty products I've been reaching and loving mostly through February.

  From make up items I wanted to mention Kiko Velvet Mat Lipstick. Matte lipsticks are ruling now I believe, especially the ones that go smoothly and do not dry the lips. This lipstick is one of them. First thing which took my attention was the packaging, it's very different and beautiful. The shade I have is 613 - pink carnation. The formula and pigmentation is great. My only issue - I would like it to last little bit longer.
  Liquid eyeliner from Body Shop was my every day must last month. It dries instantly, easy to apply and easy to take off.
  Another product from Kiko Cosmetics - Brozer Powder. It looks very natural on the skin, helps to get some warmth to the face at winter time. I have the shade 104 Cinnamon which is great for my quite pale complexion. The range has 6 shades, so everybody can find the most suitable bronzer.

  Perfume of the month for me was Versace Red Jeans. Absolutely love it as an everyday scent. The packaging is so adorable and different. I know that there are many people that don't like this perfume, but I do like the way it feels on me, the way it stays for the whole day or even 2 days. It's a fruity - floral scent with the top notes of peach, apricot and freesia.    
  For the hair care I've been loving The Body Shop Grapeseed Glossing Serum. This is one of the best oils for hair. It does its job as moisturiser and provides hair with beautiful shine. It's a must have for me during the whole year. I usually leave it for some hours and then wash my hair only with shampoo, without any masks or conditioners.
  For the body moisturiser mostly I was using Sephora Coconut body butter. I just love everything coconut related. This body butter is great moisturiser and it smells fantastic. The smell doesn't disappear instantly, so after using it I feel myself a coconut all day or night long:)

Have you tried any of these products? What were your favourites during last month? Please let me know in the comments:)
