Yes, I’m guilty! I have been procrastinating all summer about getting back to this blog! Well summer is almost over and I have finally decided to post. I have to say though, this summer has been quite busy if you consider me working everyday and trying to fit in time for the beach and going out for a few drinks, just so I can say I’ve actually done something exciting this summer, but by the sound of it and me actually reading what I’ve just written, I actually haven’t done anything that exciting! This is proof that as you get older there are more responsibilities and less play! But anyway enough about me procrastinating! I hope you all had a good summer and are ready to get back to the reality of winter. I know I am. Even though I’ve enjoyed the beach, getting a nice tan and taking advantage of the summer style I am ready to start wearing my coats and boots.
With all that said I will share with you my most successful looks for this summer and not only, but some of my favorite things that I’ve done, and these things are, going out with my amazing friends for drinks, going to the beach of course and traveling this wonderful island called Cyprus.
I went to the new marina in Limassol, which they did such a good job. It’s very modern and there are a lot of restaurants and coffee shops there. Perfect for a coffee date or a romantic meal.
The nice turquoise blue waters are in Agia Napa! Yes the famous Agia Napa! The beaches in Agia Napa are my favorite to go to! The cold clear waters and white sand are perfect for a relaxing day at the beach!
The next City I visited was Paphos. There I went to enjoy a nice little break from work and treat my self to a little luxury at the Capital Coast hotel. It was so nice and peaceful, you know the usual lounging round the pool all day getting my tan on and of course eating.
last but not least I spent most of my time in my city Larnaca. We have this place called the Mackenzie strip, it has become very popular over the last few years. It is a strip full of beautiful bars, restaurants and clubs, I would highly recommend for anyone visiting Cyprus.
Oh and the photos of me in that amazing French Connecting dress are me going to a wedding, and weddings in cyprus are a huge party, you might as well be in a club, that’s how crazy they get. But yeah the photos are more or less all about the dress.
Well enough of me blabbing on :p
I hope you guys have had an amazing summer 2014!
(P.S The cute little dog is called Mia!)
So its June and summer has already started in Cyprus! People have started going to the beach and all the beach bars. I haven’t gone to the beach yet but I’m planning to this weekend. So I decided to post about the beach essential that every girl needs. Here you will find the best buys for the best beach experience this summer. I’ve put together this mood board of the obvious things we would need. By looking around on the net, I’ve seen that there are a lot of cool things and I’ve noticed that patterned and set bikinis are in fashion at the moment. But i also like the mixing and matching, I’m that kind of girl.
For me, the obvious things I would wear to the beach is of course a hot bikini, a nice kimono to cover up when I need to, cute flip-flops, a pair of sunnys and my beach bag which would be big enough for my towel, sunscreen and some other little beauty products to protect my self.
So, with all that said, Summer is here enjoy it!!

Sunglasses (Linda Farrow for Philip Lim £251.42)
So now that the sun is always shining, you obviously need a good pair of sunnys! Almost every year the trend changes, so does our taste. But this year the trend continues from last summer. It’s all about the modern sunglasses. The most popular is the mirror lens. The mirror lenses come in all sorts of color combinations. The most popular that I have been spotting are the green, orange and blue. Whats great about them is that they can be unisex so if you and your boyfriend have a pair each, your lucky, you can change it up anytime.
Another type of sunglasses that I think are going to be a hit are the ones with the wooden skeleton. I did a little bit of research to see what styles I can find and I’ve noticed that these type of sunglasses are very similar with RayBans. If your interested in this look then i would suggest to look at these brands, Nordstorm Shwood Proof Woodzee. These websites have other type of sunglasses as well, like the mirror and cat eye styles.
My favorite are the cat eye sunglasses, they are very classic and chic unlike the modern mirror sunglasses.
I’m getting ready to give in my wafer RayBan glasses and shop for a new pair, but I just can’t decided what I want. So this post will help me just as much as anyone else interested.
Do you agree? because I do! Trainers have comeback and its been a while now! Ever since Isabel Marant released the wedge trainer every designer has created their own. This has been a very popular shoe for a number of reasons, they are comfortable, give you some hight and above all they are supper stylish and its easy to pair them with all most anything. It’s not just the wedge trainer that is popular. The flat trainer is just as popular especially the all white ones.
Here are some photos for inspiration on how you can wear your trainers!
Three Floor, a high-end luxury brand that must be acknowledged.
About a month ago I was searing for ‘the’ dress for my cousin’s wedding, and I came across the brand Three Floor. I got so excited because the clothes they have are different, colorful and modern. I didn’t want a dress too over the top and the one I found was just right petite, bright and detailed. it wasn’t as easy making a deception since there was a lot of choices,
This is what I mean, these are my top picks…
This just shows that its a few steps ahead.
Kimonos are big right now! The reason is because the weather right now is a bit up and down, for example it’s very hot during the day but once the sun sets it gets a bit chilly, but that’s when the kimonos come in.I would call them summery coats, if you get what I mean?! Kimonos are light in fabric, colorful and cool, it’s the perfect throw on for the beach bars.
But what do you pair it with??? I would suggest jeans or jeans shorts. only because your kimono will obviously be colorful and awesome and you wouldn’t want to over do it with anything else.
Also if you haven’t noticed at the Coachella festival it was one of the most popular trends a kimono and some jean shorts. Everybody at some point was either wearing a kimono or jeans shorts.
so these are my top picks for kimonos and Denim!

From tight braids, buns, loose plaits, or side fishtails, the braid has returned as the hairstyle of the moment. Add a romantic rock braid to your outfit and your good to go.
A braided up-do is one of my favorite hair styles.
You can have a braided up-do for a casual day look or and formal evening look. It’s so versatile and easy to do it by your self. Also keep in mind that this hairstyle is great for the summer.
