Hello everyone. Tonight, I though this month's last blog post should be more personal as I was tagged to do the 13 Personal Questions Tag by Helena.
1. What do you order at Starbucks?
I'm not the biggest Starbucks fan, as I am not a fan of coffee too, but I do like their Chocolate Chunk Cookies. But when it comes to ordering a drink, I think it's a Vanilla Frappuccino without coffee.
2. What's one thing in your closet you can't live without?
Such a hard question... I think it would have to be my faux-leather jacket.
3. What's one thing that most people don't know about you?
When I was 12 I had some sort of heart surgery.
4. What's one thing you want to do before you die?
I would love to travel across Europe and visit countries like Greece, France, Spain, Italy, Russia, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark...and so many more!
5. What's one food you can't live without?
Another hard question, since I love food! But I think it would be Pizza.
6. What's one quote that you live your life by?
You shouldn't do things to other people that you don't want others to do to you. I think that's a quote!
7. What do you like and dislike about the Blogging community?
I love the fact that I can connect with people that have similar interests with me and I also get inspired by some bloggers. Now, something I dislike... Hmm... I'm not sure, maybe I'll say that it's hard to get your blog out there. It's not easy to have a successful blog these days.

Hello everyone. I hope you're having a fantastic day or night! Today, I am going to be sharing with you the video I uploaded on my youtube channel, yesterday. The I Heart Spring Tag has been on my to-do list from the first time I watched Ingrid's video. But my university exams and my new obsession with Doctor Who took over and I am sharing it now, at the end of Spring. Also, I had some computer problems too, and I was unable to render the video. As I say in the video, the tag feels like a favourites video so it feels more organic to post it at the end of this season. I hope you enjoy the video and watch in HD!

Hello everyone. I'm taking a break from my exam studying to do a little review for you. The Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil* from The Body Shop is described to be a luxurious dry shimmering body oil scented with honey and monoi. And that's what it is! Both the lovely smell and thin consistency make this product feel so luxurious when applied. To use you should shake well because the oil tends to sit on the top and then massage well in circular movements over the body. When finished you should wash your hands, because there would be shimmer left on the fingers.
The first layer of this shimmery oil has very minimal colour and golden shimmer (shown on the top pictures above). You should not confuse this product with a self-tanner, it will just add a subtle bronze tint to the skin. It is very moisturising, but it gets absorbed into the skin quickly, so I would recommend it to all skin-types, as it's not heavy. Also, it gives a very nice, healthy glow, but when you look at the skin from a close distance you can definitely see the shimmer. On a normal day, I would use this on my very pale and dry legs, to make them look healthier and prettier.

Hello everyone. Since my previous Instagram blog post was so successful, I thought I would do another one today and share my week with you. Again, I wasn't planning of posting this today, but I needed to catch up with The Vampire Diaries and watched the final three episodes. And Oh My God it was awesome! (I especially loved the Damon & Elena, Klaus & Caroline and Matt/Rebekah moments.) That left me without much daylight to take photos for what I wanted to blog about. Also, I still haven't finished editing the I Heart Spring Tag video. I feel like I have a million things to do, but my uni exams are my priority. I had my third one today, Art History. Three more to go and I will be done next Friday. Oh, I can't wait for that moment of freedom! As you can see, I'm in a very weird mood tonight!
So, this week has been about the weird weather we've had in Cyprus. This month started feeling like July and a couple of days ago, it felt like February. Also, uni assignments have being appearing on my Instagram profile. In addition, I have been doing a lot of unexpected shopping this past week. Carrefour, The Body Shop and M&S. Actually, I went to M&S with my mum today, and I have to admit spending 100 euro was not my plan. As you can see from the picture above, I have an unhealthy obsession with muffins. Should I do a collective haul video? By the way, are you going to watch the Eurovision Song Contest tomorrow night? I am and I'm going to be on twitter talking about everything.

Hi everyone. In case you've read my previous new hair post, you might remember that my mum wasn't really pleased with the way it had turned out then. So after begging me to change my hair for a million times, she took me to the hair salon on Saturday. We both dyed and cut our hair. This was the first time I had my hair dyed by a hairdresser, although I've had highlights done from her three years ago.
I have to admit that my mum was right about my hair, before. It was a mess of different colours that date to two years ago. I had Satin Blonde highlights from two years ago and last June I died my hair Terracotta Red, that after a couple of months turned into a light, warm brown. This January, I decided I wanted to go back to being a blonde, but having my hair dyed by sister and let her pick the shade wasn't the best idea. The result wasn't very flattering. My roots, that hadn't being dyed red were a bright warm, golden blonde, whilst the rest of the hair that had been died previously turned out darker, thus giving my hair a reverse ombre effect. Also, once again the dye wasn't enough and the bottom half of my hair was left au naturel. That resulted in my two year old blonde highlights to show at the ends, since the red had sort of faded. And that is what my mum hated, being her traditional self. At first I didn't mind, but as soon as my natural very dark blonde roots were back and 5 centimetres (2 inches) long, it looked bad.

Hello everyone! Today, I thought I would share some of my recent photos on Instagram.
I filmed the I Heart Spring Tag today and I was hoping to have that as my blog post, but I wasn't able to edit the video in time. Let's not forget that I am studying for my final uni exams.
So, I thought I would give you 6 photos that describe my life at the moment. Basically, spring and exams!
The first one shows some flowers my dad put in the living room, the second one shows the new pair of sandals that I bought and the third one is the view from my backyard. Moving on to the second row. There we have my freshly painted nails with China Glaze's Re-Fresh Mint and a little design with the Gosh Splish Splash. Next to that you can admire my skills as a graphic designer for one of my presentations/exams. Last photo was taken while I was studying for my Art History exam.
Thank you for spending some of your time on my blog and don't forget to check out my instagram profile!

Hello everyone! Today, I will be sharing with you my top three nail lacquers for Spring and Summer. Since it's been getting a lot warmer here (30 °C) I felt the need to paint my nails something bright and fun and as I was thinking of which one to pick I came up with the idea of this blog post.
When I think of summer and spring a few colours pop in my head. A bright orange, a neon pink, a mint and an ocean blue. As you can see I don't have a blue here, because I haven't found one that I like, yet. If you have any recommendations, please comment below and tell me.
My top 3 nail varnishes are Crush on You by Orly, Re-Fresh Mint by China Glaze and last but not least Fancy Fuchsia by Orly. The latter has been featured again on my blog here. Crush on You is a beautiful bright orange, which unfortunately is quite sheer. It certainly looks brighter in the bottle rather than on the nails. You need about three coats to make it look decent, but it's very shiny. This was the colour that was on my nails two weeks ago and I've posted a photo of my nails with it on Instagram.

Hello everyone! Yes, I know today is Sunday and I've stopped blogging on Sundays, but I've decided that I will be throwing some surprise posts here and there. I've noticed that many blogs have their own buttons and some of them swap them with other bloggers and I wanted to be a part of that. So, after 2 days of Photoshop and Illustrator frustration, I came up with something very simple and relevant to my blog as my button. I'm not sure whether I'll like it in a week, but it'll do for now. I have two sizes available. 200x100 and 250x130. Do you like them?
(Btw, Happy Easter to all Christian Orthodoxs!)

Hello everyone! How has May been for you so far?
A couple of minutes ago, I uploaded a video on my youtube account about six spring outfits. Basically they're the outfits I wore this month at university, filmed on different days and weeks. That's why some items are repeated. As you can see my style has some girly, trendy, but also classy elements. I hope you enjoy and like the way I dress! Watch in HD!
What I'm wearing?
