Jour 18e.

Hallo!!! I'll get straight to the point, because I must prepare my suitcases!!! My christmas vacations are starting TODAY, since I'm visiting my best friend on Athens!!! I will be staying there until New Year's Eve. Then, when I am back I will do a post, probably on my other blog, Around the World , in which I write about different places and photos of them. If you paid some time to visit it, I would be really glad :) Anyway, today is time for the 18th day of the beauty challenge, and I will make a reference to my favourite beauty expert. Mine is a greek one, Grigoris Pirpilis, the make up artist of Maybelline New York.

I first saw him at Next Top Model, where  he was the main make up artist for the contestants. In each episode he used MNY products on different contastants, in just 3 minutes, creating a great look.

This is the look he suggests for a black tie event, for the christmas and New Year's Eve party etc.

Firstly, he applies color sensational lip line,no.540. Then he applies red lipstick no.527,ideal for very light skins, which gives a rich and creamy result. For a richer and darker result, he applies no.560 from color sensational gloss series, in the centre of her lips.
For rich volume, length and division, he uses Stileto Volume.

This is one look created by Grigoris, that I definitely want to try!

A bientot mes amis, j'espere que vous avez les meilleures vacances de Noel :)

Jour 15e + Jour 16e. + Jour 17e.

I hope you all had great christmas day!!!!

Jour 15, jewelery I Love!! :D

Chanel Earrings.
Gucci Bracelet.

Nina Ricci watch.

Jour 16e, a celebrity, whose style I don't like at all... :/

I chose Fergie, because...I just don't like her, neither as a singer, neither as a fashion icon.. Her clothes are most of the times awful, in my opinion always....

Taylor seems just fine, I really like her. Fergie on the other side seems quite akward...

These clothes are pretty, but don't fit Fergie...Quite bad choice, if u ask me....
Jour 17e, items on my to-buy list :) About 5 hehe, not too many :)

1. a pair of Ugg Boots in dark color

2.  a perfume, probably Daisy by Marc Jacobs, because my John Galliano perfume has almost finished.

3. A montgomery coat, grey color. I already bought black one for the wedding at Salonika, and now I want one again. :)

4. A pair or two, of knitted, knee-high socks.

5.A pair of Rayban Clubmasters.

This was my to-buy list, oh I have something else to add....A new camera!! I hope santa brings it to me for New Year's Eve, cause my old one isn't working properly......

Ok, have a nice evening, and a nice week until New Year!!!!!
Bisous, Helene <3

Jour 14e. + School is over + preparations for many things :)

Bonjour, au jourd'hui les écoles ont fermé, pour les vaccances de Noel! I am so happy, I was waiting for these days a very long time!!!! Oh, today i came home early, so that I could prepare any christmas sweets!!!! :D
I am doing like a really little child, hehe :D I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I made Melomakarona, a greek sweet for christmas, that is the most tasty of all, in my opinion....
I also made sugared buns with my friends, and then the kitchen was in a great mess, sugar was spilled all over the place, hehehehe!!!
Then, I helped my mother with the yule log cake, which is very traditional for christmas here in Greece. However, i don't like it..........:(
Finally, my mother and I cooked Diples, another christmas-only sweet.......

This are some Diples with honey and almonds.

This is the yule log cake. However, ours looked a bit more like this. ------>

And these are Melomakarona, again with honey and almonds.
These are sugared buns,and as you can see, they have A LOT of sugar.

Anyway, It's day 14th of the beauty challenge, and I have to tell you what hairstyle I would like to try.....
I won't say much, 1 image = 1000 words.

Yaaaaay, I already told you I love Agyness and she's very inspirational to me, although i don't wanna dye my hair blonde....... Then, I really like short hair, and actually last year, on 10/2010, I had cut my hair shorter than the second picture.....I am bored of a hairstyle very easily, and because of this, my long hair was all gone, buhuhu!!!!!! *fake crying*

Now, some other haircuts I wanna try.

I really wanna leave my hair to get long again, but I always give in the tempt to cut it..... No words for Lady GaGa's bow hair- it's just awesome!!!! Then, I have only seen me once with curly hair, so it's definitely something I wanna do. In case you haven't noticed, I really love bangs, actually I already have, and in order to maintain them, I cut them on my own!! hehehe :D

Now, on the title I said, Preparations for many things.... Here's a list of preparations I will be doing today and tomorrow...
1. pack my suitcase for my trip to Athens. (oh, I haven't said a word about it, anyway I will say something about it on monday, the day before I leave!)

2. buy presents for all my friends that celebrate their name-day on Sunday, mommy included. (christos, christina, and all the similar names)

3. put all my homework for x-mas in a special envelope for keeping them all together so I don't loseany photocopies, and make sure that I don't forget them home when I leave for Athens.

4. work on my blog doing stuff such as adding songs, or creating my new header picture, searching for my new name, and improving it all the time. I won't say a word about it though, until New year!!!  Fortunately, I came up with a result, after 2-3.30 hours of work.

5. cook sweets

6. tidy my bedroom for my mother's nameday, since some people will be coming over for dinner and for Christmas reveillon, as we call it here in Greece.

That's all!! I have only done 2 or maybe 3 things out of the list!!!!! all the others are left for tomorrow! I got to hurry if I wanna get those jobs done by Sunday, so see you tomorrow!!!! 

Bisous, Hélène!!!!

Jour 13e.

Bonjour, ca va????

Today, I have to do a post with pictures of my fashion icon. Well, I have two fashion icons.

No 1. Lady Gaga


The worst is definitely the one with the meat dress, it's so disgusting!!!!

My favourites are: 1. the one with the red lace dress
                                 2. the black maxi dress
                                 3. the photo with the vintage round glasses and the bow hair
                                 4. the mini black-silver dress
                                 5. the one with the shorts, the black shirt and the lace thing on her face.

No 2. Agyness Deyn

I chose Lady Gaga parce qu' elle a un style trés avant garde! She has a very unique style and she's not exaggerating or using too many colours. Instead, she achieves a perfect result to my eyes.

I chose Agyness Deyn parce qu'elle est trop elegante et je l'aime. Her outfits are sometimes vintage, sometimes rock, sometimes classy and elegant.....I love her and she's very inspirational.

What's your opinion about Agyness and Gaga?? Do you like them or do you think they are fashion-faux?? I got to go, because today it's the last volleyball practise before Christmas! See you! :)
