Kiss Me 💋 Kiss Me


Skirt // CHICWISH
Shoes // ASOS
Bag // Candy Kisses, same here
Top // Stradivarius, similar here




Although I don't wear it as often as I want to, red color is one of my favorite. So bright and fierce, draws all eyes on you, well, if you want them be drawn...
*TIP: Don't wear red if you want to lay low! 

Now, about that red lipstick... Yes, it's gorgeous, it's ultra feminine BUT it can be very tricky! There are three things you should pay attention, in my opinion:
1. Shape is very important: You need to keep a steady hand to draw the line around your lips. Don't try it if you had too much coffee, haha
2. Clean teeth can be a challenge: Keep your teeth lipstick-free by gently biting a napkin with your lips right after applying and then wiping the inner parts which are always wet and keep amounts of product that stain your perlies. Don't bite too hard because the paper might stuck!
3. Last, but not least, the duration of the color is key for the perfect red lips: After years of experimenting, I realized that if you want your lips to stay red all day (or night) you must use a matte lip product. Glossy or satin reds might look juicier but wear off very quickly. So, first, I apply a matte lip-liner all over my lips and then fill it in with a matte pencil lipstick. And even if I am out for drinks or dinner, the color remains to a 80%. Then, I refill, but not too much.

Do you have any tips for luscious red lips? Let me know in the comments section!

Parisian🗼Street Cafe 🍵🍰


Skirt // CHICWISH
Shoes // thanks to SANTE SHOES
Bag // thanks to Accessorize
Top // thanks to Stradivarius (old), similar here




I really don't know what's gonna happen when I actually go to Paris and post outfits from there. What titles am I going to use since I have almost used everything French I know?? Anyway, I believe that nothing is more permanent than NOW, so I will figure them out when I need them.

The reason I always choose clothes and skirts with bright, happy colors and patterns is because I do believe that your outfit can change your mood, lift it or drop it. Not that a skirt or a pair of shoes can give you happiness, nothing like that, but they definitely help your self-confidence, especially the way you walk and talk. Feeling comfortable and pretty in your outfit can change the course of your day.

Have a Happy & Colorful Weekend!

19th AXDW // Barefoot Duchess @ Topshop by Sotris Catwalk



I did it!! I walked on the 19th Athens Xclusive Designers Week runway with TopShop by Sotris and I loved it. Didn't fall and most importantly didn't panic. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end.

In this post, I am sharing with you my instagram photo diary. It was a unique experience that I never imagined would happen to me.

Thank you all for making my reality so exciting!

Spring ✿ Shopping // Hair Accessories



Long hair is my favorite thing on a person, woman or man. Fortunately, us women can accessorize our locks with flowers, stars, cat ears and other pretty little things. Now that we are in the very heart of Spring I believe it is the best time of the year to lift up an outfit by putting something very pretty on our hair. That said, I did some research and here is what I found for you.

Happy Shopping!

Picnic Ready


Skirt // CHICWISH
Basket // CHICWISH
Shoes // Stradivarius, similar here
Top // ZARA (old), similar here
Hat // ASOS (old), similar here




Now that our clocks are adjusted to the daylight saving time, the mosquitoes and bees are not yet out (at least not all of them...) and the temperature is warm but not hot it is the perfect time to go for a picnic, to grab a snack under the trees or read a book under the sound of the singing birds.

Of course, you can still look girly and stylish. You don't have to wear sweatpants and sneakers.
Put on something comfortable, not too short or too long, so that you can sit on the ground, and for the gods of fashion, wear flats!
