I’m here with the second part of my travel diary from Athens. If you haven’t read the first one, here it is. I’ve already talked you through days 1-3, and here’s day 4, the day after the girls left. We started the day with breakfast/brunch near the area where we were staying. T. and I shared the fried eggs you see in the photo above in a cute little place called Monsieur Barbu. The red refreshment is homemade sour cherry juice. Read the captions under the photos to see what we did next, and watch the vlog at the end of this post, in case you missed it on the previous one.
Heyyy! I was finally able to go though the photos I took while I was in Athens, and I’m here to show you the diary from those days. I’ve already uploaded the vlog I filmed on my channel, but since it’s mostly in Greek, I wanted to make a post here as well. This is only part 1 though, because I had too many photos and I didn’t want the post to be cramped with them. We flew to Athens on Tuesday the 5th of September, with T., and arrived there late in the afternoon, but went straight to dinner with family/friends, so I don’t have photos from that day (you might want to watch the vlog though for some #foodporn). On the next day, my girls from Thessaloniki arrived too. You might already know them from their Youtube channels, on the photo above (left to right) we have Maria of Stylebows, Katerina of Kate Tzoe and Thalia of Miss Thalia. The reason we all went to Athens was because we were invited to attend the press event/launch party for Kat Von D Beauty, which is finally coming to Greece at the end of this month. The girls were too tired to do much, but here’s what we did… Read the captions under the photos for more….
This baby came in the mail about 2 months ago, and from the moment I laid my hands on it I was in love. Honestly, it’s one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried. It does wonders for my lashes which are not too short, but are quite flat. It has a really nice wand (which you can see in the photo below), which does an amazing job of separating my lashes while giving them lots of length and a bit of a volume. I’m not too picky when it comes to mascaras, but I rarely use one I really like, and this is one I love and highly recommend. Being a L’oreal mascara means that it’s quite affordable too. You can find it in other colors as well, but black is all I need.
Promised you I’ll be back with new reviews, and here’s another one. I’ve been using Wycon Cosmetics’ Lift Effect Foundation for a few months now and it’s time to share my opinion about it. It’s a really nice foundation, not too matte, not too dewy, that has SPF15 and it looks very natural on the skin. I went with shade 02 (Beige) which turned out to be darker than I’d like it to be, so that made it difficult for me to wear everyday, but I did wear it plenty of times. It has a nice consistency, not too thick not too thin, which makes it easy to apply it either with a brush or a makeup sponge and it stays put for hours. If I had chosen the proper shade for me I would have worn it much more, so I’m sad that I didn’t. Compared to all the other foundations I’ve tried so far I’d give it an 8/10 because I do like it, but I don’t love it. So my search for the best foundation for my skin continues.
I have reviewed this collection in one of my videos, but I realized, that I haven’t done it on my blog where I also write in English. So let’s review the new Rhythm & Heat collection of CND. I received these nail polishes some time ago, and I tried them on in the next couple of weeks. Starting from left to right, the coral one is #244 Mambo Beat, and it’s the best one among the 3. You only need one coat to have a nice non-sheer color, but you have the perfect coverage with 2 layers. #245, Sugarcane is the next best one. However, you definitely need 2 coats of this for a full coverage, and non-sheer result. Finally, with #249 Shells in the Sand you definitely need 3 coats of nail polish to have the desirable result but the color does look perfect in the end. CND’s Vinylux top coat is a classic you must own. It makes your manicure last longer, makes your nails shinier, and helps your nail polish dry faster. Have you tried any of these? What’s your opinion?
