wine and dine me :)

Charlize Theron, Megan Fox, Ashley Olsen (i think :) ), Vanessa Hudgens, Drew Barrymore, Jessica Alba
Hi my beautiful friends!
More wine please :)  lipstick that is haha I wouldn't mind a nice glass of shiraz though
Anyway,whether they're matte, pearl, shiny, or glossed, I'm so into it.
I like mixing Maybelline's "Red Revolution 630" and "Madison Mauve 465" to get the color that I like... a mix between red and purple.  Next time you're in the drugstore or department store looking for a new lipstick check out the wine section.
Oh and a little tip for swatching lip colors, put the color on the pads of your fingers, the skin is a lot closer to the texture of your lips and the color will be truer :)
Happy color hunting :)

that rolled out of bed look

I'm singing in the rain...what a glorious feeling..na na nana :)
So you guessed it is raining here today...and I usually like to curl up with a good book and snuggle under a very fluffy blanket on these types of days but no such luck...I was out and about, had some things to get done, and then I met up with a friend for a nice hot coffee...mmmmm caffeine :)  Since the weather was a bit off and my hair usually expands 3 feet near any humidity, I decided to go for the "I just rolled out of bed look" which by the way took me a good half hour hahaha  but that's our little secret ;)  Anyways I went with Mary-Kate Olsen's look today...part down the middle, bangs pinned back on each side, and loose curls/waves.  So flattering, it just opens up the face and there's just something really sexy about the messiness of the style...Below are my favorite hair looks, tousled waves, messy braids, soft curls, wild buns... basically anything that looks like you didn't spend time :)  Let me know your "go to" style.
Blake Lively, Lauren Conrad, Keira Knightley, Park Bom, Kristen Stewart, Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen, Mila Kunis, Jessica Szohr
I hope you're having a wonderful day wherever you are!

Hi my beautiful friends!
Ok let me just dive right into this hahaha...yesterday I was flipping through Elle magazine, and I saw the above photo of Jennifer Lopez, I'm not gonna lie, I may have drooled a bit :)  So when I got home I hopped on my laptop and immediately googled it :)  Don't you just love google? Anywhooo I am gaga for this look, but the sad part is??  this Gucci dress would just clean out my bank account, and actually leave me in the minus...So I wanted the Gucci look without going into a coma from the shock of the price tag.  I figured you would agree so I wanted to post this look for less, just in case anyone was interested.  It's amazing what you can do when you take the time to look for key items.  Gucci dress $2480...just the dress, without the belt let me add hahaha, and you can get the complete look for $461.60.  So get out there fashionistas...Look Gucci without breaking the bank!

beauty is all around us

Hey there my lil' sugar plums :)
Such a beautiful day today, the sun was shining, and a lil' fresh air always does the body good.  My cousin and I headed to Veria today, hot chocolate and chit chat at a local cafe :) Afterwards a stroll through the streets and the shopping district.
We stumbled upon this beauty and I just had to take a picture.  It's a free standing wall at the top of Mitropoleos and I've never seen anything like this.  I love the juxtoposition of
the turquoise rocks against the grey slabs of earth.
I hope you all had a wonderful day!

Hello my lovelies!
my favorites

Seriously it feels like a friend is telling you a story and not just some author trying to MAKE a book. Throughout each of her novels you’ll find loads of characters, and there really isn’t ever truly a leading character, everyone has their place and they all play an important part.
Everytime I read her books I just don't want it to end, I feel like I know each character personally...is that weird? I don't know if it is, but it feels right, so whateva :)
It’s interesting to know that in our lives the things we do can affect others without our ever knowing of it, and that’s exactly what Maeve portrays through her writing. Everyone is intertwined somehow.  The Lilac Bus was my first read... and a few hours later I was searchin for another fix....I was hooked haha Maeve Binchy was my reason for going to the book store. Check her out, it's worth a peak, you know, fuel that brain from time to time :) xoxoChiika

long live couture

hey my lil' cherry blossoms :)
What do I have for you today? A 2fer...one post two topics :) I'm goin' wild, I know haha.
Anywhoooo....first I'll start off with my favourite scent. I've been wearing this for over a year now, and I keep going back to it.  Viva La Juicy..mmmmm....works so well with my body scent, and people become close talkers when I wear it...they just can't get enough hahaha.
The fragrance is fresh and sweet without being flowery, more berry sweet.
I would say it has just enough sweetness, making it playful and cheeky.
Viva La Juicy has top notes of wild berries and juicy mandarin gently tempered with honeysuckle, gardenia, and jasmine.
Underlying it all are warm tones of amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood, and praline.
Okay enough about how i smell :)
On to my nails.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "white on", Revlon "silver", NYX "ice glitter"

Start off with your favorite base coat.  Let dry.  You'll need a white and silver polish.  Place a few blobs of both colors on a palette because you'll be needing to work with both at the same time.
Using a toothpick or a dotting tool, place blobs of polish on the tip of the nail in a row as to cover the tip.  First place white, then silver, then white, and silver again.
Then using a toothpick drag the colors together upwards in swirling effects. 
It will look like waves.
Let dry. Place a sparkly silver polish over the swirls, make sure the majority of the sparkles are on the swirls and then just a few sparkles on the clear part of the nail...you want to make a gradient effect.
This look is nice for a night out...or for a lil' somethin' somethin' special.

wild leopard

I feel so funky :) One of my favourite nail designs to wear.  I feel a hint of animal print is always "in".  I used colours that you generally wouldn't acquaint with animal print which I think makes this look really fun and fashion forward.
Start off with a cream polish, use a purple to create a french tip, and let dry.  Working diagonally from right to left make little pink splotches. Then using a toothpick, line the pink with 3 little "c" shapes to make the leopard print.  Finish off with top coat.
O.P.I. "bride's bouquet", Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "purple potion", China Glaze "strawberry fields", Wet 'n' Wild "black creme"

what to eat?

What to eat?
If you're ever in Greece you have to try the pizza (πίτσα) and the bougatsa (μπουγάτσα).
Oh my god!!! The bougaaaaaaatsa, my favourite.  Usually only available in the morning to afternoon, because bougatsa is usually eaten as breakfast. Its a flaky pastry and you can ask for different fillings.
Spinach, which is called spanakopita.
Meat, which is kreatopita.
Feta, which is called tiropita.
And my personal favourite custard, which is called kremopita. Usually this one comes with icing sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on top.
