My month in pics

29 January, 2012

One more month is coming to an end, and while writing this post, I noticed that there wasn’t something really special about this month, that I haven’t already showed you! You see, January is one of my least favourite months, because of the dark cold nights (and sometimes days!). So not many outfit pics were taken, because I wasn’t in a mood to wear less than 5 pieces of clothing together without freezing to death, and as a result I looked more like a bear than a “fashion blogger”. Most days I avoided getting out of the house if it wasn’t necessary, I hate the cold. Although, I do have two of them to show you during the next month, when the weather was a bit less than terribly cold.  For now, here’s a sneak peek, of a one-day trip I had, to Kavala, a city in the northeast of Greece.

This is the city of Kavala

Another view of the sea – Beautiful, isn’t it?

As you know by now, this month was my blog’s first anniversary, which I celebrated with my first blog giveaway. I was really excited to announce the 3 lucky winners on my previous post. I hope they’ll enjoy their little gifts.

Those of you, who follow me on Facebook, might have already seen the pics of my manicures this month.  For the rest of you who haven’t seen them, here they are:

Up: GT Cosmetics no. 394, the green is one of the nail polishes I was giving on my giveaway.

Down: Chanel 505 Particuliere.

They both lasted over a week with the help of my Fast Drying nail polish (Mavala’s Mavadry) that I use as a top coat. Never seen Chanel’s nail polish lasting so long. I swear Mavadry is my hero!

This month, I also bought another pair of sunglasses, in case you’re bored of seeing me with the same ones all this time, along with some other cool stuff, I’m going to wear around spring.

I also reviewed Garnier’s BB Cream, and was given some blog awards. To check what else I did during January, you can check here, or on my Facebook page.

Enough about me…How was your January? Tell me all about it on the comments below.

  1. Kavala is so pretty! It looks so nice and warm even in Winter 😉 Are you going to post more pictures? I love your manicures too, the GT colour is not really my thing but the Chanel nail polish is an amazing colour, I want it for fall!

    • Thank you Stephanie! It may looks warm, because it was sunny, but it wasn’t. In fact it was quite cold and windy! But it was one of the good days of January! Now it’s much colder, and the next week they say we’ll have below zero temperatures like -10C…Not good. And the humidity makes it even worse.
      I am going to post a few more pictures when I’ll show you the outfit I wore that day. But it’ll have to wait for a while. Yes the green nail polish is a bit extreme for me too, but I wanted to try it. And I also wanted it to show it because it’s the same I was giving on my giveaway. The Chanel one is one of my favourites. Such a nice color.

  2. So good the server put your blog online again! I was visiting it yesterday many times, and that was not on. But I’m glad it is now!
    First, you’ll never look like a bear, I am veeeeeeeery sure of that! You always look gorgeous! You are the kind of a girl who can wear what we say “even a potato bag” and you’ll look elegant and beautiful!
    Second, the nails are fabulous! I may try the blue one, since I started trying blue, remember? And I liked the result! The other, by Chanel, I have a similar color by OPI, and I think it’ll do. Your manicure is really great, always!
    Well, January must be one of my favorite months… it’s the beginning, beginning of the year and my birthday. We have lots in common, but this time I must say one thing we don’t! I like winter… anyway, it all depends where we are and with whom! I remember going to Athens in January, and it was 16 degrees C, it was OK… but that was long ago (need to change it soon!)
    By the way, what for a great city… the whole Greece is beautiful! The sea, the cities, Kavala seems to be amazing – I want to party there!
    I hope you have a great Sunday and I am looking forward to seeing the outfits you mentioned!
    Filakia polla!!!

    • Yes, I’m so glad too. Unfortunately it took a lot more than I thought for the server to be ok, again. I put the message there, because I didn’t want to lose any comments or emails in the process, so it was easier if the site looked down.
      Thank you so much for your sweet words. Although I doubt that I would look good “even in a potato bag”. I can look bad even when wearing better things. But I try not to look bad when I’m going out. You’ll soon see the outfit pics I took both from Kavala and Thessaloniki the day before, I just have to postpone the posts, to do the Wishlist one. And today I had to do this one. In fact we shoot another one this morning. It was sooo cold, and a bit windy. I hope I won’t get sick. I rarely do though.
      As for the nail polishes, I’m glad you liked them. I’m sure the OPI one would be just perfect. I’ve seen some similar ones of the Particuliere one by this company. Your blue manicure was fantastic.
      I can see why January is one of your favorite months. I’ve noticed that those who were born in winter, usually prefer it. I was born in Spring, so I’m a Spring girl. I can’t stand the cold. There are not enough clothes to make me feel warm in this climate and I’m glad I don’t live northern. Although the temperatures here are really low lately. Nothing like 16 degrees. We have temperatures around zero, with snow on the nearest mountains, and they say that the next week we’re going to have below zero temperatures. Around -10 to -15 degrees. Terrible. I’ve never experienced such low temperatures in Greece so far.
      Kavala is a really nice city, with a harbor and nice beaches, but I love my city so much, and I can’t compare it to anything else. hehe
      Filakia polla Denise mou! I hope you have a fantastic Sunday as well! 🙂

  3. i have the same Chanel nail polish and i think its very cool! luv it! 🙂 check out my new site for some trends, tendencies and inspirations i have spotted on my Milano trip this weekend and much more!
    follow each other? 🙂

  4. Your server is back! Yay!!!
    January is one of my least favorite months too, though I haven’t figure why, since it’s not because of the cold.
    I’ve never been to Kavala, it looks beautiful.
    Have a beautiful week ahead,

    • Yayy, it’s finally up! Hehe! Unfortunately, it took more time than I expected. I put the message of maintenance on cause I didn’t want to lose any comments or emails in the process. In fact you could see the blog the whole time, if I hadn’t! hehe
      Everything is so grey and cold in January. I don’t like it! Kavala is a really nice city, and it’s so close to Thessaloniki. You should visit it if you ever come in northern Greece. 🙂

    caramellitsa recently posted..Puffy Puff New Make Up Stuff!My Profile

    • Σ’ευχαριστώ πολύ caramellitsa! Ναι, είναι πολύ ωραία η Καβάλα. Έχω πάει πολλές φορές. Τα τελευταία χρόνια σπουδάζει εκεί και ο κολλητός μου.
      Το Chanel είναι πιο πολύ προς το γκρι-καφέ, ήτανε πολύ της μόδας πέρσυ. Αλλά μην σε ξεγελάει, δεν έχει καθόλου καλή διάρκεια. Αν δεν είχα βάλει απο πάνω το Mavadry της Mavala, θα κρατούσανε 2-3 μέρες με το ζόρι, όπως μου συνέβαινε παλιά. Νομίζω ότι μόνο σε μένα κρατήσανε τόσο, και είναι και πανάκριβα, 23-25ευρώ το ένα.
      Φιλάκια πολλά και καλή εβδομάδα και σε σένα.

  7. Amazing pictures, loving your nail arts! And it’s so cool that you went on a one-day trip to Greece, I like the pictures! Great post by the way, we follow you on Bloglovin now 🙂

    • Thank you! I live in Greece, anyway, I just went to a city close to mine for one day.
      Thank you so much for following me. I’ll make sure I’ll follow you back when I visit your blog. 🙂

  8. Bellissimo lo smalto marrone 😀 Reb, xoxo.

  9. Όντως ο μήνας που τελειώνει ήταν πολύ κρύος! Πάρα πολύ ωραίες οι φωτό από Καβάλα! Δεν έχω καταφέρει να την επισκευτω ακόμα, αλλά θέλω να πάω πάρα πολύ! Σούπερ και τα 2 διαφορετικά μανικιούρ που έκανες! Το particuliere είναι και για μένα ένα από τα αγαπημένα μου! Θα δοκιμάσω και εγώ το top coat που προτείνεις! Επίσης, ερωτεύτηκα τα νέα σου γυαλιά ηλίου! Είναι τόσο τέλεια και πρακτικά! Btw, ευχαριστώ που έκανες follow με bloglovin!

    • I may be biased cause I live in Greece, but it’s really beautiful here, and you should definitely come. hehe 🙂
      The Chanel nail polish is from last year, but I’m sure you can still find it.

  10. Μετά από λίγο περισσότερο από ένα μήνα, μου φαίνεται θα ξανασυστηθώ!!!:(

    Ελπίζω να είσαι καλά:) Εγώ είμαι μια χαρά! Απλά μέσα στις γιορτές “έμπλεξα” τόσο με φίλους που φιλοξενούσα, που για να είμαι ειλικρινής, το ξέχασα το blog:D
    Είχα και τη μετακόμιση εδώ – Βρυξέλλες – και μόνο με αυτά ασχολήθηκα:):)
    Καλή η πόλη εδώ, αν και δε μου αρέσει το ίδιο με τη Ζυρίχη, στην οποία ελπίζω να μην αργήσω να επιστρέψω:):)
    Έχουμε πολύ κρύο αυτές τις μέρες και γενικά ο καιρός είναι λίγο ολλανδικός, αναφορικά με τις βροχές και τη συννεφιά: ο ήλιος είναι σπάνιος!!:( Γι’ αυτό και δύσκολες οι φωτογραφίες έξω:(

    Θα τα λέμε και πάλι!:)

  12. Just like how January was for you it was the same for me. Even in this part of the world we experience extreme cold in winters and we do not have heaters in place everywhere here. So amid cold winters I had lot of food, filled with calories, so I need to exercise more in the coming month.

  13. i think you saw my recent post of january’s recap? it went well…stayed on top of a few goals! i really like that brown polish…have yet to try chanel’s polishes. are they good?

    • I’m not so satisfied with Chanel nail polishes. They usually last 2-3 days maximum. But using Mavala’s Mavadry as a top coat, made it last over a week on my nails this time.
