New Year's Eve Makeup

New year's Eve is probably the most glamorous day of the year. For this reason, try to step out of your usual makeup routine! Create a look you have always wanted to go for but wouldn't dare... After all, a little extra shine is allowed -if not needed- during Holidays.
And girls do not forget your favourite red lipstick!!! Trust me every woman looks good in red lipstick, all she needs to do is find just the right tone for her! In the following pictures you will see 5 different tones of red, all of which look amazing. Combine the red lip with a neutral eye, a 50's winged eye or even with a smoky eye look. It all depends on the look you want to achieve.....
I hope you all have the greatest time!
I wish you a Happy New Year!

The Silk blouse

A pretty silk blouse is trully a must have. I am obsessed with this piece of clothing because it can be worn in a multiple number of ways. Wear it with a mini skirt for a sexier look, with a leather pant for a styling look, with a pencil skirt for a business look, with a pair of shorts for an everyday look or even with some jeans for a casual chic look. Do not hesitate to spend more money on such items than you would normally do, because they can be worn with many different outfits.There are so many out there that it is confusing, and after a lot of research I narrowed down my list to the following blouses:

7 for all mankind, silk charmeuse military shirt

Friend of mine kitty shirt

Equipment 2 pockets silk shirt

Chelsey Flower roll up shirt

LA Made Corrina blouse

JOIE eleanor top

Zara silk shirt

My precious rainboots

Just came back home..It was really cold today and the sky had a dark gray color, as if it would rain. I wore my lovely rainboots, they are simple, made of a matte black rubber but they are very stylish. It is so funny, but almost every time I wear them I always receive tons of compliments on them. Nobody believes me when I tell them they were really cheap, probably less than 20 euro ($25). Today, I entered a store with my sister and this girl was tottally staring at my feet. She soon asked me about my rainboots and even proposed to buy them........(!)
Anyway, she inspired me to make today's post. I will share with you some of my favourite rainboots and hope to give you a small help if you are in the process of buying a pair! I believe that rainboots can give the perfect tone to a casual outfit, sometimes smart, others chic and often childish. They can be worn with jeans, shorts, sweat pants or even with cute romantic dresses. It is just a matter of style and mood!
Oh, and one last thing...basically for those living in warmer countries like Greece...Please avoid rainboots when there is no possibility of rain, when the sky is blue and there are no clouds anywhere to be seen. It  looks rediculous plus your feet are very likely to sweat -because of the rubber- under such weather conditions.

Angelina Jolie: In the name of plastic surgery

Nobody can doubt that Angelina Jolie is among the prettiest woman of this planet. One of the best actresses of her generation, god blessed her with a uniquely beautiful face and a great body. Jolie is just another example of a gorgeous woman who underwent a number of plastic surgeries, in an effort to perfect her image. But in her case, I happen to believe that she –unlike the celebrities in my previous posts- knows just exactly where to stop and refuses to go overboard when it comes to interventive procedures. Jolie is famous for her natural luscious lips, which are nowadays framed by an ideal contoured face, an elegant nose and a perfect chin. I believe that her plastic surgeon, is among the most talented doctors, firstly because his procedures are based on minor micro-plastic alterations,  secondly because he/she had the guts to operate on an already perfect canvas, which is always a risk and finally because after having plastic surgeries she still looks like the same person, only prettier and more fresh!

In the following photos, pay special attention to the nose (especially to the tip of the nose), the chin and the apples of her cheeks.

Style with Taylor Momsen

Taylor Momsen is definitely a girl with a sense of style. Some may love it and others hate it, but nevertheless nobody can accuse her of not having a personal fashion identity. To me, she is the amalgam of the cute girl with a baby face and a rock star with punk inspirations. She always “wears” her clothes, and knows just the proper way to support her style with minimal effort. Some of the outfits she chooses are very hard to get away with, in the sense that they could easily make someone look chip and without class. This antithesis is probably the reason why she has become a style icon… she looks so elegant and chic and dresses so provocative, ending up with a well balanced image -which is definitely pleasing to the eye!

Preppy face and shiny hair, a perfect youthful face canvas combined with an overstated smokey eye look….. and there you have if a boarding school girl gets ready to party hard on a Saturday night….
Taylor Momsen has a very lean body with barely any curves, this is how she does not look overwhelmingly sexy with these tiny mini skirts and shorts. There are times, when you can easily wonder about whether she is wearing anything underneath her long t-shirt or silk blouse…..except her garters!

But, who cares? She still manages to pull it off…….

Heidi Montag: In the name of plastic surgery

What can I honestly say about Heidi Montag? A woman who has tottally transformed over the years, and no it is not because she grew up, she wore makeup or changed her hair! It is because she has had a great number of plastic surgeries. I can honestly say that she looks so much prettier nowdays that she used to look. BUT, the problem is one, she is not the same person any longer, she is rather the outcome of multiple and succesful surgeries. It makes me sad to see people who cannot see anything beautiful in such cases, the problem is so much deeper than the physical appearance, this is why even after they surgically change their "insecurities" they do not manage to heal their confidence!

Apparently she has had the plastic sirgeries in two phases. According to experts, in the first phase she had a rhinoplasty and a breast augmentation. And in the second, as she admited in People's magazine, she had 10 plastic surgeries, all at once (brow lift, botox in forehead and frown area, nose job revision, fat injection in apples and lips, chin reduction, neck liposuction, ears, breast augmentation revision, liposuction on thighs etc and buttock augmentation). Wow, how much courage does it take to do that!! The three photos are from the fisrt phase and the rest are from the second.
