LUSH Haul!!!

So, I am back with a small LUSH haul!!!First of all I have to say that I didn't buy everything in one go.Also, there are a couple of re-purchases of all time favourite products and a couple of new additions.

So, here is what I got:

Ocean Salt scrub: An all time favourite of mine!!!

It's raining men shower gel: A great nourishing shower gel which smells like the cult LUSH soap "Honey I washed the kids" (enough said...:P )

Tea Tree Water toner: Another all time favourite of mine. It is a great toner if you are in the market for one.

Tea Tree Tablets: These little tablets work amazingly if you want to give yourself a facial. Just throw one in a bowl boiling water and use it to steam your face.

Last but not least the "No drought" dry shampoo. I am new to this product. I am all out of dry shampoo and I wanted to get one with more natural ingredients than the ones I was using before so I went ahead and bought this one. So far I really like it. It smells very fresh and lemony and it works wonders for my oily roots.

Have you tried any of these products? If so, let me know what you think. If not, would you like to try any of them?




I am sorry I have been MIA for the past week or so but several events occurred that , unfortunately, I had no power over. The biggest one was that we almost lost a colleague and friend last week. He is 23 years old and he has a wife and an 8 month old daughter. To be honest the details are not important really but I would like to ask you for some positive thoughts if you can "spare" some and a bit of patience as far as the blog is concerned. I will be back this week...I can promise you that but I apologise for not posting anything last week. I hope you're all well...

My current obsessions(featuring 2 new Shop MAC Cook MAC products)

Hello Hello...

I thought I would do a post on my current obsessions which are peachy/Coral products. I am in love with these colours at the moment and they seem to have dominated my make-up choices.
Four items that I have been absolutely loving are the following...
1. Chanel "June" nail polish...enough said...;)

2. MAC "Watch me Simmer" lipstick...!This is a bright coral colour with an Amplified Creme finish. 3. MAC "Purring" tendertone. This is a cross between a lipbalm and a lipgloss and the colour is a very pretty peach(perfect for summer and spring). Both of these products are from the Shop MAC, Cook MAC collection. I ,also, wanted the peachy cream blush but I couldn't get my hands on it so I asked a friend of mine to pick it up for me.

Last but not least, is "Fresh Honey" mineralized blush from MAC(lots of MAC products I know...)

Those are my current obsessions...I would love to know yours...let me know in the comments below or do a post and leave me the link :) Love ya all... xoxo Athina

NOTD: Dutcha just love OPI

I have a quick NOTD for you today featuring OPI's "Dutcha just love OPI" from their latest "Holland" collection. This is a gorgeous mid-toned purple with very very fine golden shimmers. It is a very unique colour and I have nothing like it in my collection. I have spotted one more colour that I like but I am trying to cut back on spending money so I am not sure whether I will splurge on that.Let me know what you think about this colour and/or whether you'll be picking up any colours from the collection.

What do you think??


February Favourites!!

So, girlies, another month flew by didn't it? How are you all doing? I am back in Moscow for a little while(or, at least, that is how I am looking at it) and work is as hectic as usual.
Now, today I have a post on my February favourites for you. I hope you like them and you find them interesting...:)

Let's break it down shall we??
I am ,still, in love with the Garnier BB as well as the Chanel Bronze Universal...

Also, after I decided I should stop using my NAKED palette for a little while in fear that I might get bored of it, I put together this MAC quad...

The top two colours are "All that glitters" and "Rice paper" and the bottom two are "Haux" and "Signed, Sealed".
Next up are 3 wonderful products...!!1. Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in the colour "black ink" 2.EOS lipbalm(lemon drop) and 3. MAC Speed dial lipstick.

The next two products are the YSL faux cils mascara in the colour "Noir Radical" and the essence angled eyeliner brush(If you haven't picked it up do it NOW...no no...no arguing...right NOW :P).

Last but not least, a nail polish and a nail polish remover (convenient don't you think?). The nail polish is the French manicure by Orly in the shade "Sheer Nude".The remover is OPI expert touch and it is the purple one(I have no idea whether it has a special name or not).

So that is all for now my dears...!What were your favourites this month??

p.s. On my nails I have my favourite polish shade which is Essie's "Sand Tropez"
