Shop my style



W hen I think of summer ,comfort is the first thing that comes to my mind. The high temperature leaves no room for tight clothing and as much as I would like to wear my favorite fitted dress or lace turtleneck top I siply can't bring myself to do it. My summer shopping list is mostly consisted of light fabrics and easy to wear pieces like this super comfy, red tube top that turned out to be a true favorite of mine for this summer ( also got it in floral ). If I could , I would easily purchase every single color ever existed but for now let's stick with this basic top with the cutest bow straps.

Since I am so obsessed with this type of clothing I looked everywhere for deals in order to get a few more of them while sticking on a budget. Bellow you can find the most affordable tube tops . This light blue bow tube top is by far my top choice for a warm, sunny day of if you are looking for the perfect cover up for your strapless bikini at the beach. Now that I think about it I am pretty surre I had a very similar one back in highschool, when I was really struggling to find my personal style.

While I was perfectly planning my summer holidays , eager to get away from the city and all the constant noise that comes along with, the weather had different plans. The stormy, moody days seems like they will never end . If you someone looks closely he might spot a few rays of sunshine now and then but most of the time it feels like the middle of Autumn.  I keep orginising my suitcase hoping for warmer days now that July is almost here.

The cold weather took such a big toll on my mental health, it's unbelievable. Over the last few weeks I felt extremely unmotivated in pretty much every single aspect of my daily life. I keep pushing myself to be a better , more orginized person but sometimes everything feels like a burden. I want to go out, but I want to stay in. I want to work but I also want to stay in bed doing nothing. I want to make art but nothing seems to turn out the way It was meant to. These thoughts have been taking over my mind for many years and beacause of that I keep finding new ways to battle these emotions and still be able to function daily.

I have a little folder on my phone's notpad with all the tasks than need to be done every single day. It can be as simple as "go for grocery shopping" or important, urgent projects like edit, deliver a project etc. I set a goal of 7 tasks per day and at the end of each day I check and mark the things I managed to do . Each time I try to add one more thing . The feeling of seing my daily accomplishments motivates me for the next one.

I keep a list of all the things I accomplished within a month because most of the times I tend to jump of from goal to goal without taking the time to appreciate how far I have come.

I always take a few minutes out of my day to listen to some of my favorite podcasts. The Pursuit With Purpose by Melyssa Griffin helped me tremendusly not only to overcome many of my daily life struggles but also shown me new ways to deal with stress , anxiety and work overflow.

Hello lovelies! It's been a while since the last time I published a guide but here we are, ready to touch on yet another frequently asked question on my instagram dms. What to wear in Greece during summer is something that many of you seem to wonder for a few weeks now. Maybe you are planning on traveling in Santorini, Athens, Mykonos or simply are curious. Today I am going to answer your questions the best way I can.

I have spend 24 years in Greece and the one thing I can defintely vouch for is the warm (somedays too hot) weather. The temperature will almost never fall under 28 degrees nor will rise above 35 but still, if you are not used to the heat you have to mentally prepare yourself.

1. Go for loose, comfortable trousers .

Cotton, linen, silk and jersey in light, neutral colors don't trap body heat and absorb contrary to other fabrics like wool and polyester. 






2. Choose tops and blouses that don't restrict your movements.

The feeling of being restricted by your own clothes is probably the worst during hot, summer days. I personally spend most of my days in Greece wearing off the shoulder tops, basic v-neck t-shirts and loose button up shirts. Any type of lace will most certainly give you the worst tanning lines due to constant sun exposure .

3. If you plan on visiting a Greek Island, avoid wearing heels.

Let's get one thing straight.It is literally imposible to wear heels all day on a Greek Island. You can always pack your favorite heels in order to wear them for a few hours in the nightclub or at the restaurant. but the streets are definitely not made for that kind of footwear. Sandals and sneakers are  by far the comfiest choices.



4. Never go out under the sun without a hat.

During 1pm-5pm the sun can be a danger to your heath especially if you are not used to it. Pick a basic hat design that will look good with pretty much all your outfits and wear it religiously.

5. Nightout.

Evenings can be a little windy in Greek Islands even during summer. Don't forget to pick up a jacket, blazer or at least a scarf to wear around your shoulders. I wouldn't recommend short, loose dresses or tops especially if you are planning on taking a walk.




6. What's in your beach bag?

The one thing you should never forget to bring with you is your sunscreen. Sunbathing can be extremely damaging to your skin without the proper SPF. (I would recomend a 50+SPF protection). Always wear a pair of high quality sunglasses even if you are sitting under a beach umbrella. Have a bottle of water in your bag at all times in order to avoid dehydration.



A circle depicts that your love is forever, infinite, unending same as a circle which is never ends. And what can be a better material than shiny gold for this endless circle? The subsequent decision is what type of moissanite gold engagement rings you would like, or can pay for, to gift to your woman. Gold comes in various different forms, and selecting the one which fits with your budget and taste can take a little bit of time. Selecting gold rings for girls will take a bit of research; however, once you find the one you're comfortable with that in terms of beauty and quality, the woman will love it too.


Gold Engagement Rings For WomenThere are different kinds of karats linked with gold, and all of them have their own merits. The low karats of gold still are affordable, and beautiful. Higher karats cost more, and maybe they are not be in your budget, but may be achievable with some saving or any layaway plan. This karat system is quiet simple to understand, it only means that purity by mass of gold in ring out of the 24 parts. For instance, 24 karat gold is 24 parts of 24 parts measured; 18 karat of gold means 18 parts of gold to 6 part of other material. So, 10 karat of gold means10 parts of gold to 14 parts of other materials and very beautiful when made in gold rings for women, and generally more affordable than the18 and 24 karats gold. If you truly want high karat gold ring for your love, many brick and mortar and online jewelry companies will offer layaway or some other plans so that you can extend your payments over some months. At the end, it will come down to whatever you can pay for and what you desire to buy for your love!

In spite of its name, "gold" bringing to your mind that characteristic glittery yellow "gold" color. Gold actually can come in lots of different colors, a few of which can be shocking to you! Perhaps gold rings for woman will be conventional gold, but it can be white gold, green, grey, red, blue, purple, and even black colored gold rings! Perhaps, if the woman you're buying ring for loves roses really, you can find a rose color gold which may remind you as well as her of her beloved flower! When selecting gold, you can choose a favorite color which may mean something to you or her or both, and can be described in your rose gold morganite engagement ring's color selection.

You can find lots of options at any jewelry store you browse, whether at physical store or online store, and the main key is to search something significant for both of you. When purchasing gold aquamarine ring for girlsFree Web Content, the purpose should be to make her happy!


Virgin hair bundles usually should be curled but due to all the manufacturing process, curls are lost. In an era of ever-changing hair care tools, a curl without heat becomes an illusion and a difficult thing to do. For many, it is not just an option. Even if they had choices of making the curls, they still prefer the heating system because it is fast and easy to do. With them just thinking is an extension anyway, can easily be replaced and again the heat is faster, easier and super cool. So here is the deal girls, not all super curls come from hot wands. Am going to whisper some real methods you can use to get curls on your virgin Brazilian hair. There are lots of methods which include the straw method, flexi-rod method, olive oil and conditioner method; also the weave method will all get you that curl.

Curl Brazilian body wave hair without heatThe straw method: - here all you need are straws, rubber bands and water. First cut the virgin Brazilian hair in small thin sections and pick them one at a time and work on them. You can either wet the whole hair before starting or wet as you pick. Now use a straw starting from the middle bend, wrap the hair tightly around it. Bend one end to hold the hair and use a rubber band to pin it down. Then roll it properly to your scalp to make sure it is nice and tight and bend the other end of the straw to pin it down. Do this for all the hair and be careful not to over damp virgin hair vendors thus this will mean longer drying time. Sleep in this over-night and if you are doing it during the day make sure it is properly dried. When it is dried, remove the rubber band, loosen the curl and just carefully pull them out. Then separate them using your fingers to make it fluffy and style however you want. This can also be achieved using flexi rods. The difference is that the straw method gives you smaller curls.

Shampooing method: -here you start with applying a mix of conditioner and olive oil. Leave it on for about five to ten minutes and wash out. You will start to notice the curl. Then you apply a very good deep conditioner, roll hair into one big bulb and put a shower cap on for another ten minutes. Then start applying your styling products. Usually, curl activator and curl moisturizing milk. Robbing and allow drying. And you are ready to rock your full hair virgin Brazilian hair curls.

Weave method: - here you just weave your wet hair and allow the hair to dry. Then loosen the hair and apply all the styling products o choice. Massage in properly and bam, that is it.
You just have to make out the time and be a little bit more. These tips should give you the best curls with your virgin hair bundle.

How to find the perfect swimsuit for your body type
"I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living."

     This quote has been on my mind for a few weeks now , so much so that I put it on one of my most recent instagram captions. Over the last few days my body has been getting an enormous amount of vitamine D (or vitamine "sea") and surely I have no complains. Most of the days we had the beach all to ourselves since hardly any tourists are here on May even though the weather is so warm most days. I also had a ( as it turned out ) great idea to use my Stronger Label sports bra as swimwear . I still can't believe how comfy this is.

     I have already shared most of my favorite swimsuit choices on my instagram stories but today I wanted to also upload a quick guide to the most flattering bikinis for every body type rather than another shopping list. 


Hourglass shape body
You are blesed with the perfect proportions and a variety of deferent styles will look great on you and compliment your curves. 

Triangle (pear) shape body
Try adding more volume at the top to create a balance . Chooce a statement bra with ruffles, tassels or prints and a plain bikini bottom (preferably monochrome).





Inverted triangle shape body
Draw the attention and the bottom part of your body. Since you have a larger bust aria avoid straples bikini tops. Try to chooce a monochrome bra and pair it up with a statement bikini bottom.




Rectangle shape body
High waisted bikini bottoms will help you give definition to your waist. It would be better not to mix and match with your body shape.



Since I moved to my current house (almost 4 years ago) decoration has been one of my biggest motivations. Truthfully the more time you spend in a place, the more attached you feel and personally since I am working from home I spend more than enough hours in my living room. If you follow me on instagram you probably know what a decor junkie I really am. Redecorating not only makes me happy but also gives me the motivation I need to spend more time  working in this pleasure environment. There are so many guides on how to properly decorate your house according to your needs. Everything from living room decor for small spaces to clever ideas to make your home look more specious and so much more but the one thing that all of these guides have in common is how
 much , even the simplest change, can have a positive impact on your daily life.

CANDLES

 During this season I am always leaning towards fresh living room decoration since let's face it, we are almost at the heart of summer. Plus during June I find myself looking for decorative canals much more than during any other season. Milk and honey candles are at top on my "favorite candles" list like the Glasshouse Oahu Candle for $27 or the Candle Island $28. 



PILLOWS

Again, if you look at my instagram you will see that both my living room and bedroom is mostly wrapped in neutral colors. My gray sofa is probably my most favorite corner of the house and the easiest part is that I can place any neutral colored pillows , faux fur or add a little texture with a textured pillow case without making my living room space look too busy. Favorite designs at the moment are definitely the Pillow Perfect for $50 and this square throw pillow for $42




COFFEE TABLE

Believe it or not I had the hardest time choosing my coffee table decor. I draw most of my inspiration from pinterest 's easy coffee table decor ideas and finally I am  able to make the most out of it since this particular space has to be both chic and practical. The first thing I added was four gilded coasters (almost the same as Rab Lab 's agate coasters ) from a local, handmade designer to give a boho decor touch and then continued by adding a rose gold vase for only $43.






There is nothing more satisfying than a quick getaway once in a while, especially when the temperature feels just right throughout the day. The sun is definitely here to stay and I couldn't be more happy about it. To be completely honest with you guys it feels more like summer than spring lately. My off shoulder tops and denim shorts are already hanged in my closet and even though evenings are still a little chilly.

The usual style block

Hello lovelies! Please raise your hand if you have been through a style block over the last two weeks. I know most of you (and me of course) have been dealing with a few days of complete lack of inspiration from time to time. I have found myself unable to pick up an outfit so many times in the past , I truly stopped counting. Over the last 3-4 years I found quite a few different ways to overcome this block and spend as little time as possible to pick my daily outfits. Especially if you are like me , the kind of person that changes outfits more than once troughout the day you will surely find the tips bellow extremely useful.

As for me this week has been quite hectic so far. We had to spend quite a few hours in office waiting rooms, signing papers etc. Adult life is surely a blast most of the times ahahha. Anyways, I have also been obsessed with blazers lately, always trying to find new ways to style my small collection of blazers. I am currently thinking of buying a new one ,with a bright , bold statement color this time. As you can probably see on my blog and instagram I am going through a face of constantly wearing sneakers , even with vinyl skirts! Despite the fact that I do have a back disformation which I only found out a year ago after three days of constant, umber able pain and the feeling of loosing the movement in my legs . Turns out after a few x-rays and doctors appointments that I have Spondylolisthesis type 1 since birth and even though this does not effect my everyday life what so ever there might be rare,brief periods of time that I will experience severe pain as I did last year. Enough of the medican stuff!





Outfit Details:





1. Take quick mirror selfies to save your favorite outfits

There are days I feel delighted to try out new outfit combinations. Taking advantage of these hours of endless inspiration try to style as many looks as you can , take a selfie of each one of them and save them on your phone. This way you won't feel pressured to try on so many different looks every day just to find the best one for the occasion. You will already have a few well thought ideas to save you lots of time daily.

2.Follow instagram hashtags like #ootd #outfitpost

Another great way to receive a tone of daily fashion inspiration is to follow popular fashion hashtags of instagram. This way you will not only have everything you need right in your hands but also, you might find some amazing accounts you have never checked before.



3 Browse through leading-fashion sites like Whowhatwear , Lookbook, Blonde Salad, StyleCaster

This is a list of just a few places you can find fashion and beauty inspiration daily. There brief but very reach in details articles can always help you during your "styling block".

 4.Polyvore 's secret usage

I have been using polyvore for a few years now, mainly to organize my daily outfits and store my inspiration for the days I feel unmotivated. I personally use this site a little differently than most people. Instead of taking the role of a styling, I don't choose my favorite pieces and style them to create a beautiful layout. Instead I search for specific pieces that I already own (eg H&M vinyl skirt) and create multiply looks with other designs that are already in my closet. If I am unable to find some of the clothes I own , I place something really similar instead. When I a done, I screen shot the set and save it on my phone for future reference. 


 
5. FB chat stylists m.me/epytom

This is a service I came across very recently. In a few quick words Epytome is an artificial intelligence stylist in Facebook Messenger. All you have to do is answer a few questions that evolve around your style choices, favorite pieces of clothing etc and you will be receiving outfit suggestions according to your needs. You can set the settings to daily, weekly, twice a week etc mode and this chat will do all the work for you during the days you feel uninspired.







Spring Staples // Photographer : Kleiklis

You all know how much I love a new, beautiful bag to start of the new season. Truth is I always find myself eyeing on bags way more than I do on clothes and other accessories. Now that the cold, rainy days are finally over all I wanted from the moment I started adding things to my "Spring wish list" was a neutral tone bag to start this promising season with a boost. A week ago I found the new baby of my bag collection as soon as I got up close and personal with Sienna Jones's Classic Collection. SJ is a British brand focused on designing and creating beautiful Luxurious fine leather bags and accessories in Covent Garden, London.

If you know me you know how much I actually value staple pieces that can elevate even the simplest of outfits daily. As I have talked about on many previous posts here, investing in a few basic fashion items in order to create a "capsule wardrobe" from where you can easily reach easy to style, day to night pieces of clothing on those busy days we all have every week is so crucial. A simple chic leather bag, a black trusted blazer, a pair of white sneakers(..) are things that you are not only reaching out for pretty much daily but can also have the ability to be as versatile as possible for you to create a look from day to night. Investing on a basic piece for your wardrobe can sometimes seem like a pointless think to do "It's just jeans, I will pick up another pair" but I assure you , it's not.

If you stop for a moment and think of all the money we have all spend in purchasing and re purchasing basic pieces just cause we used the to death rather than investing a few extra dollars in one , high quality piece that will last for quite a few season to come is inane!I would be more than happy to know in the comments bellow the results if you consider taking my advice.
