The weather has been a bit crazy lately. One day it’s super hot, and the other it’s back to cold again. That day was very sunny, yet windy, so the thick cardigan was definitely needed. The crazy wind made my hair from combed into a mess in nanoseconds. You know how much I love my pencil skirts, and this winter I didn’t get the chance to wear them as much as I wanted to, primarily because of the super cold winter we had. But now it was the perfect chance to wear one of my favorites. Pencil skirts really flatter women who like me have a “pear” shape, but I think they look good on almost every body type. So don’t be afraid to wear them. With heels or sneakers, they can make your outfits more special. See how I paired mine here? With a very simple turtleneck top and a long cardigan and ankle boots. Super simple, yet feminine, and perfect even for work in the morning or late night drinks in this crazy weather we’re having. Now go try it yourself, and let me know what you think.
Σήμερα έχω την χαρά να σας συστήσω μια ελληνική εταιρεία με χρόνια εμπειρίας στον χώρο της plus size μόδας. Αφορμή για αυτό το διαφορετικό για εμένα και το blog μου άρθρο, στάθηκε το γεγονός, ότι πολλά αγαπημένα μου πρόσωπα καθώς και πολλοί από εσάς μου έχετε πει κατά διαστήματα ότι δυστυχώς οι περισσότερες εταιρείες δεν έχουν μεγάλα νούμερα, και έχω παρατηρήσει κι εγώ η ίδια ότι όσο πάνε, αυτές οι εταιρείες, «μικραίνουν» τα νούμερά τους και τα κάνουν πιο στενά. Με ρωτάτε συχνά λοιπόν που μπορείτε να βρείτε όμορφα, θηλυκά και μοντέρνα ρούχα σε μεγάλα μεγέθη, και επιτέλους έχω την απάντηση σε αυτό. Θα τα βρείτε στην εταιρεία Parabita, η οποία συνεργάζεται με κάποια από τα μεγαλύτερα plus size fashion brands της αγοράς, αλλά βγάζει και την δική της ομώνυμη σειρά ρούχων.
I may look sad or angry in most of these photos but I really wasn’t. The thing is, I had a terrible headache which was made worse by the bright sun, and I kind of got tired of trying to find a good spot to photograph this look, because wherever we went, the light was just not right. But we managed to take at least a few good photos of this look, so I can show it to you here today. As I said, it was a really sunny day, but don’t let the sun fool you, it was cold, and quite windy, and that’s why in most of the photos I have my hair all over my face. I actually straightened it before the shoot, but the wind decided it shouldn’t stay nice and ruined it. Oh well! I thought about this outfit when I saw this heart-printed shirt in my closet, and I got inspired by it, to try it with a mini skirt (one I’ve worn only once or twice), and my over the knee boots. See, I don’t own a lot of mini skirts, because they don’t look that good on me, but I really liked this combination, and I think that the outfit looks quite good and decent. haha I topped it off with my cropped jacket because it was still too cold to go outside with just a light shirt. Hope you like this look.
I’ve been using CHI’s silk infusion for months, but it occurred to me that I hadn’t done a review about it here on the blog, and I really should, because it’s an amazing product. It’s like a hair oil, but it’s colorless and more concentrated. It smells heavenly, and leaves your hair with a silky touch and a nice glow, especially if you straighten them. You can use it on wet or dry hair, and since you won’t be needing a lot of product each time, it’s gonna last you for a long time. I definitely recommend it, because I absolutely love it, and I’m sure you’ll love it too!
I rarely do lip product reviews, but since I’ve received many questions about NYX’s Lingerie liquid matte lipsticks, I wanted to write my opinion. Mine is in the shade “Teddy” which is a very rich chocolate brown which I personally love. When you first apply it on your lips it’s very velvety, and easy to use, due to its flat brush. You don’t necessarily need to outline your lips, because you can do a very precise job with its brush. When it dries, it’s completely matte, almost non-transferable and long-lasting. If you have dry lips, you have to properly exfoliate and hydrate them before using it, because it’s gonna make your lips even drier. But if dry lips isn’t your problem, then you’re gonna love it. I personally love it, besides the fact that I have dry lips myself, and I’m actually flirting with a few more shades of the Lingerie line. Have you used this lip product?
