A few months ago, I made the decision to reveal my name to you. I waited for the perfect chance to do it, and had already decided how to: by playing a little game with you and letting you guess what my real name is. Your participation was overwhelming! At first, I thought that not many will be interested in playing this game, and then I thought that the number will stay somewhere under 20 people. But as the days passed, I realized that the number had gone to 3 digits. Wow! Thank you all so much for participating! It was so much fun reading your guesses and your occasional comments (even though I’d have loved to know what everyone voted, but most of the people didn’t leave any comments, and some didn’t event read the hints I gave). I counted 14 possible names (and 2 “invalid” ones – Emma, and Mat? What???). Below, you’ll find the final results, but I noticed that Maria, Margarita and Magdalini where fighting for the 1st spot till the end.
When I started this blog, I didn’t know where it will lead me, and how many readers it will have, but since it was personal, I knew I didn’t want to reveal my name. Not because I didn’t want my readers to know it, but because I didn’t want it to be out there on the internet. I wanted to create a barrier between my personal life and this blog. None of my friends knew its existence, until I started telling them some time ago. Some people get it, some people don’t and living in a country like Greece, and a rather small town (even city, compared to other big ones), you always get a few weird stares when you’re taking photos of your outfit, or if you generally do something different from the usual. But I’m in a point in my life, where all of my friends know about my blog (my family too), I’ve met with some other bloggers from Thessaloniki with whom I’ve become friends (and of course they already know my name too), so I decided that it was finally time, to cross that barrier I created and share my name with all of you. But before I do that, I decided to play a little game with you to make you more engaging, and make this revelation more fun! I’ll give you a few clues, and I’ll add a poll below, where you can add your own options, and guess my name (if someone else has already written the name you were going to write, just click on that option, and vote for it. If not, you can add your own)! I’ll reveal my name some time during this month. So, let’s see:
A few weeks ago, the Greek Beauty Bloggers’ team posted the interview I gave them some months ago. When someone new joins the community, he is asked if they want to give an interview for their readers, in order to get to know them better. I gave mine around January, but I guess due to the fact that they have many members, and therefore interviews, it got posted at the start of this month…My Greek readers may have already read it (if not, click here to read it in Greek), but I wanted to translate it in order to show it here on the blog as well. Some things have changed since then, but it was my first interview ever, so I want to thank the Greek Beauty Bloggers’ team for giving me the chance to be part of their community. This is gonna be a long post, so I ask you in advance to forgive me for that! 🙂 Hope you like it!
My dear Denise tagged me a long time ago to tell you my beauty sins, but every time I was going to write about them, something kept coming up and I kept postponing it. Seeing now that it has been 5(!) months since she tagged me (can’t believe it took me so long to post about this), I finally said I should stop postponing it. At first I didn’t know how to answer to these questions since I’m far from an expert in the beauty field. I don’t do my make up like a professional (as most girls I see these days do), and I don’t use many products from the mass market, so I don’t know if this has something interesting to say about me. But I was tagged, and it’s time to do it. So here we go:
