If you read this post about my love for these lavender shortbread cookies, then you'll be not surprised by my obsession on having my cupboard constantly filled with these little babies. I promised myself I would find a way to bake these at home, not being willing to spend my salary on the ready-made ones, and I think I did it!

Not a long time ago, I accidentally found this sweet little shop full of handmade goodies - among others. Bags, scarves, wallets, jewellery and clothes. I felt like a little girl in the candy store hehe.. I was more than thrilled! Not being sure where to start from, I got me this cheerful pair of earrings (well, the days were still more sunny than they are now). How do you think? Keep your eyes peeled though, as I've made another little investment to upgrade my accessories stash, so...stay tuned for more!

I know, I know, it's not perfectly polished but I think it doesn't really matter since it's, after all, an experiment. I did it in a hurry and I was lucky enough not to destroy it until it dried completely. I have a wedding to attend to this weekend so I believe I'm gonna enjoy this mani! As for the procedure, it's self explanatory, just an off-white nail polish and some glitter on the tips and a bit below. How do you think?
| Ξέρω, ξέρω, ούτε άψογο είναι ούτε και πολύ επαγγελματικό. Αλλά ειλικρινά νομίζω ότι δεν πειράζει, αφού εξάλλου πρόκειται για πειραματισμούς. Το έκανα μάλιστα τόσο βιαστικά που ήμουν πολύ τυχερή που δεν καταστράφηκε εντελώς μέχρι να στεγνώσει. Έχω να πάω σε έναν γάμο το Σαββατοκύριακο και νομίζω ότι θα το χαρώ πολύ το σχεδιάκι αυτό. Όσο για τη διαδικασία, θεωρώ ότι μιλάει από μόνη της, ένα υπόλευκο βερνίκι και λίγο γκλίτερ στις άκρες (κι ελαφρώς πιο κάτω) κι είμαι έτοιμη. Πώς σας φαίνεται;

Yes, I'm back! I'm so glad to be able to write these lines right now, I've missed it. Still recovering, and trying to relax and be more positive and strong. So I took a few days to spend by the sea and enjoy summer. I packed my bag(s), except for my make up bag, which I substituted with a small purse; I just wanted to take essentials with me, no fuss, no mess. And of course it had to be about bright and bold colours, this was my firm decision this summer. Despite trying to keep it simple, you'll find that I still had a lot of bottles and jars to carry around, but you've got to believe me when I say that I tried my best to be and look as carefree as possible (*sigh*). So, skincare: check, haircare: check, make up: check! Let me show you what I mean. (Sunscreens, deodorants, shower gel and shampoo are not mentioned though, so let me know if you're interested in an update).

A few months ago, I was fortunate enough to win a Pai Limited Edition set in a contest held by Beautybay.com. I hadn't had the chance to try any Pai products before and I was more than thrilled to have this opportunity. This set belongs to the "Age Confidence" line of the company, which is a better alternative to the - disappointing at times - term of "Anti-Aging" products. The set comprises of the Echium and Argan Gentle Eye Cream as well as the Echium and Amaranth Age Confidence Oil. It also contains a soft and luxurius Lavender Silk Eye Mask and it comes in this lovely box. Amazing.
