Shopping 101: The 9 Golden Rules

Hello lovely readers,

Hope you're having a happy Sunday!

Yesterday I went shopping and got myself quite a few goodies which I'm really excited to wear and show you in the future. Shopping is such a pleasure for me and doing it with my best friend only enhances the experience. I'm not that big of a spender but this is definitely not because I don't want things, trust me, I do. A lot. It is mostly due to the fact that I try to be wise and selective when I shop because I wanna make the best choices possible. There's nothing that bugs me more than having purchased an item I didn't end up enjoying. It's not so much the amount of money I spent on it but rather the frustration of not finding any good use for it and still feeling too sorry to let it go and admit it was a waste.

So to save you from future faux pas when shopping I will provide you with my holy grail pieces of advice that keep me from over-spending and cramming my closet with unnecessary, pointless items.

Inspired By The Music: The Pierces' 70s Nostalgic Boho Edge

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog,

I am very excited to share with you this piece because it is inspired by one of my favorite music groups ever, the Pierces. For those of you who are not acquainted with these two talented ladies, The Pierces are a psychedelic/ambient indie pop/rock duo that consists of Catherine and Allison Pierce. Their music has this nostalgic yet witchcraft-y vibe to it that is very unique and fresh. They're girl power at its best. Feminine, flirty, sarcastic but also deep and soulful. I'm obsessed with them, I mean, can you tell?

Celebrity Fall Style Inspiration: Steal The Look

Hello my lovely readers,

Today is a national celebration for Greece which means I get the day off. Yay for that. I finally got to sleep in a little and wake up refreshed and energized. I also got time to write a new post on this inconsistently updated blog of mine. 

I figured that I hadn't done any celebrity-related posts in a while and as you know, I love my celebrities. Call me shallow but I can't help it- I'm just fascinated by them. I always was. So, what's on the menu today is six gorgeous affordable fall-ready looks inspired by six much buzzed about style stars. 

You can find all the items used in the icons below each set. (By clicking on the icons you will be redirected to Polyvore - there you will find the link to the online store)

Let's get right to it:

Get The Look: Olivia Palermo

This look combines so many current trends: leather, fur, turtlenecks, long trenches and midi skirts. It's a scene-stealer for sure but subtle enough for daytime.

My Favorite Youtube Beauty Gurus

Hello lovelies!

Today's post is going to be a little bit different than usual. No fashion tips and tricks, outfits or trends for today. 

For the past couple of years I've been OBSESSED with the youtube beauty community. I've always been a girly girl who loved makeup among other things, but fashion was always my top priority. Ever since I started watching youtube beauty videos, tutorials and reviews I found myself being introduced to this whole new world of creativity and expression. I learned so many things and I've grown to love makeup and cosmetics way more than I did before. I now feel much more confidence going into Sephora because now I know what I want and no sales assistant can fool me. Knowledge is power! My friends and family now come to me for makeup advice and guidance. As a result, me and my friend Vasilia even launched a beauty/fashion channel last spring. You can find it here.

The beauty community is like a safe place where we can all chat and share our tips and recommendations and make each other feel beautiful and confident. I love that about it. It's a place where it's all about us women, we do this for each other, we build each other up with no men involved. There's no right and wrong, there's no bashing or shaming or hating. We can just be ourselves and do our thing and support each other for it.

Therefore I felt compelled to share with you my all-time favorite youtube beauty gurus. These are some very talented and exceptional ladies I could easily be friends with. Each one is special in her own way so read on to find out the deets!

8 Reasons Why Fall Is The Best Season

If I haven't made it pretty clear already, Fall is my favorite season. Though I do believe I haven't yet had the full, Fall experience in all its glory because of where I live, I still really enjoy all the small and lovely bits and bobs Fall has to offer.

How To: Coats Of The Season

It's around this time of the year when most women are starting to go on the hunt for the perfect piece of outerwear.

Every season new trends come along, new options appear in the stores, new styles seem more and more appealing, but when it comes to buying a new coat, it's an investment you shouldn't take lightly. A t-shirt or a mini skirt you might give away next season, but a 300$ coat is something that will stick with you for months and months to come.

Top row: Burberry Prorsum / Dolce & Gabbana / Eudon Choi / Gucci
Bottom row: Balenciaga / Thakoon / Saint Laurent / Tibi

Now, a coat doesn't have to be that expensive per se, you can still go out and give a fun, trendy outerwear piece a try that doesn't cost much, just to satisfy your trend hunger (I get it girls, we all succumb to that one from time to time). But make sure that what you're buying is still well crafted and fits you properly. I just can't stand poorly sewn, ill-fitting coat. Your outerwear is what most people see during fall and winter, so choose wisely.

Fall Lookbook (+video!)

Hello beauties,

Our youtube channel has been going strong over the past few days and I'm so excited to see it grow and welcome more viewers and subscribers. We hadn't done fashion on our channel since our first video basically, which was last spring, so we figured it was a great time to bring to you our favorite (early) fall looks.

Some of you might find these outfits too light, as they don't provide much coverage and warmth for those who live in colder countries. The weather in Greece was still quite warm at the time I filmed the video and it was afternoon so don't jump on me for wearing sleeveless tops and spaghetti strap dresses. It's been just a couple of days now that the weather has been leaning more on the chilly, autumnal side. There's a cool breeze in the air that calls for a light cover up.

However for those of you who still wanna draw inspiration from my looks I will give you some tips on how to make them warmer and cozier for those crisp fall days.

Makeup Tutorial: Easy & chic daytime look (+ video!)

Hello my lovely readers,

I haven't done beauty in a while, so I figured it was about damn time. This look I'm gonna share with you today is one I filmed quite some time ago but due to my video editor crashing it had been left half-done. But now that I fixed things and stole some time, I finally uploaded it on the Youtube Channel I share with my lovely friend, Vasilia.
