Hello there! I hope you all had a great weekend and a happy Mother’s Day! I don’t get to spend Mother’s Day with my mum every year, since we are based in separate countries, so being home was a real treat this time. We bought some amazing flowers and also met with friends; it was all good fun! As I was celebrating this day in Greece, hubby kindly agreed to help me with a small Chanel haul, since the Cruise Collection has now officially launched in the U.K. Here go some swatches of most products in the Chanel Summer 2017 Cruise Collection and my initial thoughts on my picks!
Hello my lovelies! Hope you all had a great weekend? I certainly did and managed to squeeze in some cooking too, which is nice. I made a yummy greek spinach pie! It’s truly hard to explain how tasty this pie turned out to be… *modesty, Eleni!*. Ok, not praising my cooking skills any longer and moving onto one of the most beautiful new launches this year: the Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss. The series has been revamped and it’s now much more than a simple gloss, as it’s won a place in both my heart and my vanity table *winks*! Seriously, the new Coco Gloss is a delight to use!
Hello everyone! Greetings from Greece! And happy Valentine’s day, to those who celebrate it! Hubby and I celebrated an early Valentine’s Day last weekend in London and, now I find myself back home in Athens. I love coming back home *grins with satisfaction*. I know I’m biased, but for me Greece is one of the most beautiful places! Not only for its natural beauty and deep history, but also for its warm-hearted people. It can be so pure and hospitable a country that it blows my mind. Anyway, no point in praising my own roots any longer, so I will move onto another foundation review! The new Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue foundation is simply… gorgeous!

Hello beautiful people! We are approaching the end of the week! How nice – I am already looking forward to the weekend and although from next week some major changes are in store for me, I have managed to keep my calm so far, which is unusual. But let’s move onto something more pleasant now. I promised I would review the second quad from the Chanel Coco Codes Collection, namely Codes Subtils. If you would like to read my thoughts on Codes Elegants and the line in general please click here.

Hello! I hope you are aaaall having a fantastic week! Who would have guessed that we are approaching the end of January already?! Have you kept up with your New Year’s resolutions? Let’s not speak about mine really *smiles cheekily*! I’m in the process of re-evaluating some of them, as a few might have been too ambitious, but, come February, I will try to stick to my plans more. Time will show if I will manage it though. If you have any tips as to how one can be faithful to their NY resolutions, I’d love to hear them. Anyway, today I am super excited because I am starting the reviews in the blog with a beautiful collection by Chanel. Here are my thoughts on Chanel Coco Codes.
Coco Codes is a collection that features Chanel’s signature colours: golds, browns and beiges. I am over the moon with this collection as I LOVE these colours (You can call me Ms Goldie or Ms Brown if you like. I assure you I will turn to both ;)!) This is a spring collection, despite its more “autumnal” hues, but it’s Chanel, so I would not expect anything less than innovation. Let’s face it, you are talking to a Chanel addict here and although I don’t love all of the line (can’t wait to share my thoughts on the foundation), it’s by far one of my favourite brands for eye and lip colour.
