Back and Blogging Again!


I hope you are having an amazing week!

I haven't blogged for almost a month now and I fell sooo bad, because when I started I promised  myself I would blog every day, or at least I would try to blog every day. In February I went to Greece for ten days, and I had a great time, and when I came back to London I was so busy with so many things..

First I came back with two luggage (I traveled with a small one) and I had to open them and tidy everything..I did that after two day!!Then I had to tidy the house a little bit, my wardrobe, the kitchen cabinets and all the stuff I have in my bathroom..they were a mess.
Then, I had to go back to work to update and organize a lot of paperwork and also to complete and send some museum job applications. The good news is that I will start working on Friday at the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising in Notting Hill and I am so happy!

Now that I am back on track, I have a lot of posts to prepare on new skincare and makeup products, recipes and home cleaning products...but first I want to share with you some amazing pictures that I took when I was in Athens. I really hope you like them!

This is the awesome view from my house, the day starts so much better when you wake up and look at this beautiful view..I used to take it for granted when I lived in Athens, but now I enjoy it so much.

The next pictures are of some of the places I like in Athens, but there are sooooo many more...This place is called 'Les petites Maisons' and it opened a few months ago in Glyfada. Its decorations is amazing and it is a very cosy place for coffee, cocktails, lunch and dinner. They make the most incredible slow cooked pork hock and trotter with fresh french fries..I ate this two days in a row, couldn't resist.

Vouliagmeni Nautical Club

Vouliagmeni in Greek means 'sunken' and it is a beautiful seaside town in Athens. In Vouliagmeni Nautical Club there is a uniquely amazing restaurant, a tavern actually, by the sea..the tables are located on the sand and the food is super good and fresh.

Vythos in Greek means 'depth', meaning the sea depth. This is also a new restaurant near my house, and I went there with my mum for lunch. I really liked it, the decoration is awesome and the food super-super fresh. It felt like I was in a Greek island in the summer... 


We had, Sfakiani Pita for dessert, this is a pie filled with soft white cheese from Crete called myzithra, it is then deep fried and topped with honey and  sesame seeds...extremely good. Trust me you have to try this!

Sephora Haul in Greece!


I came to Greece for a few days and I visited a Sephora shop as they had a 30% sale. I really like their products but I cannot find them in London. I havent tried yet all the things I bought, but I will post a review this week.

So here are the amazing products I bought!

The first one is te Gentle Exfoliator Cleansing Cream (6,54€ from 10,90€).
It is a thick cream but not greasy, which smells very nice and it removed all my makeup. You rub it on your skin avoiding the eye area and then rinse with water. I was surprised that it doesn't have any granules to actually scrub, but it left my skin feeling super soft and it didn't cause my any breakouts.

I bought this cute Ultimate Lip Balm with SPF 15 and I use it alllll the time! It makes my lips so soft, it doesnt have any smell or color, but it gives the most amazing shine and natural color to your lips!It is not very sticky, my boyfriend hates when I wear sticky lipgloss : ) the pot is pink, small and adorable!

My favourite smell in the whole world is orange blossom, so I got the Orange Blossom Bubble Bath and Shower Gel, the Moisturizing Body Lotion and the Smoothing Body Scrub.

For the past three days I have been using the Triple Action Cleansing Water and I am really liking it. I find the pump so easy to use, it doesnt iritate my eyes or dries my skin out and it removed all my eye makeup, I didnt wake up with panda eyes!

I havent tried yet the Instant Moisture Mask, but I read so many great reviews that I decided to buy it. I will try it for sure this week, I will do a "spa night" and I'll keep you posted!
The shaker comes with four small sachets with the powder, you add water to the shaker and then the powder, mix it well, apply it to your skin and wash after 10 minutes.

I bought three Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof, in Grey 03, White 01 and Silver 02. They are very soft, pigmented and easy to use.

White 01, Grey 03, Silver 02

Finally, I found the most amazing eye pencil, the Twinkle Light Eye Pencil in Twinkle Gold. It is a soft pink, vey pigmented and shimmery, the texture is very soft and I like using it on the inner corner if my eyes.

Here is Sephora's link if you want to have a look at the products.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this post!

Lots of Love
