Something is really wrong these days ...

... cause I am so tired all day long, I can't sleep well, I'm always thirsty but everytime I drink water it makes me sick! Anyway, on Friday I bought my first liquid eyeliner . I used to use my pencil eyeliner sometimes and it was fine. So, I bought something new, for about $6 (4€). And this is how it looks:

It's a waterproof eyeliner by Beauty Line Cosmetics. I used it last night and I'm pretty satisfied. It stays on for many hours, it's resistant and it's not difficult to remove it even though it's waterproof (i'll test it sometime while crying to see if it's a real bargain!).
You know, I'm 19 years old, but I started to deal with make up only a while ago. Before that, I only wore a make up, mascara, eyeliner and sometimes eyeshadows. But I didn't care about brushes, the different types of shadows, eyeliners, foundations etc, so I'm really excited about the whole make up world! To be honest, some bloggers here and the youtube gurus made me realise that I didn't use the brushes right. Haha, it was weird to see me trying to find out which brushes are suitable for what thing.
Anyway, I also bought some pearl bracelets with charms on them, which I really loved!

And there were three more bracelets without charms on in the package. Bought this at Stradivarius only for 8 € (or $11). 
How are you people?
Did you celebrate Halloween? (it's a pity we don't celebrate it here)
How is your weekend so far?
Have fun

Vuitton and Chanel! Or just Louis and Coco?

So, the other day I was having coffee with my boyfriend, when I started talking about a girl who was carrying the LV bag shown at the photo above (which I love). And he was looking at me without speaking. He knows I have a crush on LV bags, so it was not easy for him to say what he said: "Why is it that special? " -"Why?What is it?" -"Exactly, what is it?"
And I just answered by saying that they are pretty, and come on, they are Louis Vuitton! Ssh, they can hear you!
But after that, he got me thinking. Why are these bags so special? They don't even have something special. Just the brand. They are brown or baige, with monograms or a chessboard all over them. Why do we make such a big deal? There are many other beautiful bags that are really cheap and affordable, coming in huge varieties and for every hour of the day. We die to have a Chanel classic bag, you know, the -usually- black one with the gold chain, when we can find the same bag for $2000 less. The only thing missing is the C-C.
Why do we want these bags and we save money for a year or more to buy one of them, when with the same money we can buy a whole new closet-including the new clothes in it?
Why are we so crazy about them?
Maybe we can think about it in an another way?

Iseree Peeling Gel review and your help -again-!

Good evening (hm, or night, or morning-depends on where you are) lovelies!
How are you? Today I will do a review of my peeling gel by Iseree, which I buy from Lidl. (If you don't know Lidl, you can learn more *here*).
As I have said before, I have a really sensitive and also demanding skin. So, I don't like to change my favourite products. For my face, I use the Iseree peeling gel. It comes in a tube which contains 100mL and it costs no more than 4-5 € (or $5.50-7). 
Just like many Iseree beauty products, it comes with Liftan formula, which I don't know what it is and I can't find further information even on internet, but it is promised to younger,cleaner and smoother face skin. I can't talk about the ingredients, as I am not a chemist, and I can only talk about the Vitamin E and Provitamin B5. The vitamin E is good for your skin and protects your cells, while being a great antiocidant. Provitamin B5 is used a lot as humectant, emollient or moisturizer. Meaning, it can do miracles with your skin, as 'it improves hydration, reduces itching and inflammation of the skin and accelerates and improves healing of epidermall wounds->description provided by wikipedia'.
The gel has white and blue granules, which help you get rid of dead cells and reveal your smooth skin! I use this product many years now and I won't change it soon. Usually, I use it when I have a pimple that won't leave me alone no matter what I do. And when I put my gel on while I have a bath, the pimple clearly starts to disappear.
So, I highly recommend this product to you, too. And even if are not satisfied, you will not cry over your lost money, as it is really cheap!
And for the end, I have one question: What do you think about this watch?

Do you like it?
Would you wear it?
How is your day going so far?
Have fun babies,

NOTD, Gossip Girl and your help!

Salut mon amis, how have you been doing?
I'm currently trying to decide what to do with my nails! Yesterday I created something like this:

I know, they don't seem to be good in this picture, but in reality, they were adorable! I actually had a french manicure but instead of classic white, I used a gray nail polish that had glitter in it (It's supposed to be used for nail painting) and then I created lines with a black polish (again-used for painting nails). I really liked them, but I don't know why, I spoiled them in purpose. I guess this is called OCD? Anyway, now I will try to make them look better!
And you know I'm a HUGE fan of Gossip Girl! I just saw yesterday's episode and I literally couldn't breathe while Chuck and Blair were talking in the end. Not a happy endind yet, but I can say that in the next episode something good is gonna happen!! So, stay tuned!
Oh, almost forgot! I want your opinion on something. My first experience with make up remover lotion was kind of terrifying and awful! Since then, I use wet tissues to remove my make up, and then wash my face, put on cream and so on. But, I'm thinking of trying a lotion sometime and I need your help! Do you use any make up remover lotions? Do you know any good stuff that won't hurt my skin? I have a really, really sensitive skin and almost anything can make me scratch myself, or it makes my body mad and it reacts with pimples! So, if you have in mind any good lotions, let me know!

NOTD and brushes stuff!

Hello lovelies, how are you?
I'm really good as my week has started good too!
I ordered a pair of boots a few weeks ago and they arrived today! Yayy! Unfortunately, because of a problem I will be able to get them tomorrow! I can't wait!
Anyway, on a previous post I told you about a brown nail polish I bought. And yesterday I tried it on and I'm really pleased with it!

It's a cheap polish (I think around 1-2€, or $1-3), so I'm happy to see it is that good! The colour is just like it seems to be in the bottle and it gives it after only one coat (inside light, no flash). I think brown nails are a must for the fall and winter! 
Back to the title, I want to tell you a tip on how to clean and store your make up brushes. I saw it on youtube ( on one of Michelle's Phan video ) and I wanted to share with you guys. 
To begin with, it's very important to clean your brushes, and especially your concealer brushes. Put some dish washing liquid and olive oil in a dish. Take one brush, put it in the dish and do circles in the liquid so it will go all the way through the brush. Then put the brush on your hand and move it back and forth to make sure it will go everywhere. Wash the brush, place it in a glass and wait for it to dry. Make sure you put it there with the brush down, so the water and the dirt won't go upper in the brush to stay on it or destroy the glue of the brush. You can find brushes guard that protect your brushes while they dry and keep their shape. You can find them *here*
When I shared this idea, many people suggested to use baby shampoo instead of dish washing liquid and olive oil.
So, how is your week so far?
How do you clean your brushes?
Do you have any useful tips and tricks?

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian wore this dress at Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research at The Angel Ball 2010 in New York City.
She mixed this black dress with a big turqoise necklace
, turqoise earrings and ring.
To be honest, I hate this look. I don't care about Kim, I just think she knows fashion. But this look... It makes her look shorter and it's too tight in my opinion. Not for me!
What do you think?

Lady Gaga: New look!

What happens when you're angry and close to the shops!

Hello sweeties, what's up?
I'm so so so tired. I went to the uni today because I had a class at the law school, and then I had my regular class on psychology. And as I realised -early enough to have plenty of time until my next class (a couple of hours) and late enough to go back home- the law school had no classes today. And I was something like "Oh not again, damn you bad luck, damn". And I got really angry, so I decided to visit a 1€ shop (everything costs only 1€. Actually, that's a lie, I have only found one shop that literally does that). And this is what I got:

Wet towels for hands

Glamorous Brown Palette

Brown nail polish

The nail polish is darker that it seems. I love brown nails and brown in general. In the first photo you can see that I have on my nails the polish I made myself and told you about on a previous post. I wanted to buy an eye-liner that seemed really nice and a lipstick, but I'm going to the cinema later, so I decided to buy them the next time I'll miss my class! Ha!
But how are you?
What's your favourite nail polish?
Do you have any plans for the weekend?
Lots of kisses and have a nice Friday!

Funny me and created on Polyvore (pt.1)

Hello ladies and gentlemen, how you doin? I'm just fine, trying to stand up and go to my class, Personality Theories II. How exciting? Anyway, I'm in a hurry, so I will just post some funny photos I found on Internet and my favourite look (created on Polyvore).
This is the look:
You can find me on Polyvore: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/home?id=1865878  Actually, I love this look. It's simple and cute, and it reminds us that October is the month against breast cancer! We should all take care of ourselves and visit our doctor every year!

And ok, I laughed my ass off when I saw these pictures! Especially the Brangelina photo is hilarious in my opinion!
Oh, and something more for you to laugh at: A video on youtube showing babies making funny faces when they are eating something they don't like. I couldn't stop laughing when I first saw this! And the babies are funny, but this soundtrack makes you laugh even more!

Enjoy little monsters and always laugh!

My homemade nail polish!

Hello world, how are you?
Once I was in my uni, I saw a girl with gray nails. I was staring at them until I asked her what nail polish it was. As I was expecting, it was Essie. And after googling it, I think this one:

Essie Gray

I tried to buy it, but I went to Hondos Center and couldn't find it. All the similar colours were not affordable (I don't like to pay a lot for a nail polish) and the affordable ones had glitter in it or they were too shiny. So, I decided to create the colour myself. And I loved the result!
All the things I used were already in my house:

  • White nail polish
  • Black nail polish
  • Nail polish remover
  • Empty bottle

First of all, I cleaned a half-empty bottle of nail polish by putting in it the remover and shaking it. I have to admit, it was kind of difficult. After cleaning it, I put inside again remover (just a little) and then added the white and black polishes. I mixed them, trying to create the right colour. And this is what I made:

I really loved it. This is how it looks on the nail after two coats. (inside light without flash)

Now, after two days, it's not that gray, it's a little darker, something between dark blue-green and gray. It's still amazing.
How is your day?
What do you think about it lovelies?
Have you ever mixed nail polishes to create your own colour?
Lots of kisses!

I'm back!

Hello guys!
How've you been these days? I decided once to delete my blog, but I couldn't make it! I'm back, but I've changed! In a good way I hope! I deleted most of my posts and I only have the most important ones, that are related to fashion and beauty. Hm, they are not many, but we can do something about it!
So, soon I will make a poll for you to let me know what you expect from me. What do you want to see here? I'm going to try and post about fashion, beauty tips and maybe some reviews of my favourite products. I'm thinking of posting "Hit or Miss?" things, "Who wore it better?" and so on. I think it's fun and a great way for all of us to become better when it comes to fashion. Would you like to see anything else? Let me know your opinion! In these first days, I will also recreate the appearance of my blog, trying to make it more cozy and cute. Hope you like it!
Oh, and something I haven't said before. English is not my native language, and I'm trying hard to avoid any mistakes. I know I make some, so be patient and just laugh! I make mistakes even when I speak Greek!
So, tell me, how are you? Are you having fun? How's school-university-work going? Have I missed anything HUGE?

H&M scrub quick review-Tottaly satisfied.

I told you the other day about an organic scrub I bought from H&M. And that I was gonna try it and let you know my opinion. Well, my opinion is this: FABULOUS! My skin was so soft and bright. So,let me take it from the start.

The ingredients:
  • Water
  • Apple Juice
  • Cocamidopropyl Betaine
  • Apricot Seed Powder 
  • Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Sodium Chloride
  • Citric Acid
  • Sodium Benzoate
  • Potassium Sorbate
  • Benzoic Acid
  • Fragrance
98,5% from natural origin.
10% from Organic Farming

To be honest, I'm not a chemist and I don't know if all these ingredients have something wrong. In a quick search in Google, I saw that they are safe and good for your skin.

I applied it in the shower and it was so nice. After the shower I put on this:

I know it's after sun lotion, but it is the only one that doesn't harm my skin, which is SO sensitive. I bought it from Oriflame last summer. You realise that the combination of the scrub and the lotion was succesful! I was touching my hands all the time!
Don't forget to vote for my poll on the right sidebar!
