Dream Sunday

Today my father returned from his trip to Athens, and he brought me my new book, Masquerade!! (Its froma series called Blue bloods, and it is the second book) I missed him, I hadn't seen him since Monday and I am glad he is back. Today we didn't have a volleyball practise because the coach was sick, so I spent some quality time revisioning history for tomorrow's exam. Then I read a bit of my new book.... The day was quite rainy and peaceful, so when my parents decided to go out for lunch I suggested to let me stay at home, so that I could play some piano......The rain is always so inspiring for piano, and so was this sunday... I decided to start  learning La Valse D'Amelie, by Amelie the movie. And my mind travelled to Paris once more....This movie is so niceeeeeeeee. And the music so romantic. And this is how I found what to add to my blog as well. I haven't posted anything about fashion lately, but never mind, because I am in a romantic, peaceful dream atmosphere right now...... And it reminds me totally of Marie Antoinette for some reason. It is a song that leaves you a sweet scent.... Anyway, good night everyone (it is already 22.32 here) and see you soon :)

A tout a l'heure! Bisous, Helene

Little Signs of Early Spring

I know it's a bit too early to talk about spring since it's only january. Today was the best day of January, that's for sure. The weather was just fine, and what can I say?? It wasn't cold at all, actually it was quite hot for winter day, probably because the wind was coming from the south... And souther than Greece is Africa, so yeah, it does make sense....  

Those days are great. Temperature is raising. Winter sales have begun. And speaking of sales, I must say I honored Zara and Bershka those days quite a lot. I bought two other jeans, even if I had bought before one week the blue one, only that this time one is pink and one is grey. I also bought a pair of shorts, a -kind of- blouse, a necklace and a skirt. Yeah that was quite a lot, all in one day.

School is going on very well, I must admit. I am predicting that in the second semester I will maintain my good grades, since exams have started, and I am doing pretty well. Today we got our first mark! Ancient greek- 18.5 out of 20, it is almost the same with first 3-month period, when I got 19. I dont care for half point, the teacher is going to put a very very sweet 19 on my grade card, so everything's fine. And we are writing incredibly many exams these days, at least I am doing well..... You know, we are allowed to write one a day and 3 a week, not more. So this week's program was like : Wed. Biology, Thur. Helen (its actually a literature piece like Oddyssey), Fri. Physics. Next week: Mon. History, Tue. French, Wed, Modern Literature......

This year, I must share my thoughts about it, is going to be great, maybe awesome. I am very optimistic, I mean, I always was, but there was a period, from august to november when all sparkle was away, and nothing kept me going. Yeah, 2012, is definitely going to be my year.  There are moments when you think nothing will change, and then, you see some little ordinary, everyday life things, that shout to you, hey keep going on, if you  give up now, you'll never reach the best times. And for the first time of my life, I understood why we all need goals. I also understood why English people who have retreated want to live their rest of their lives in greek islands, but that's another point..... Greece is an awful (almost) country, but everyone must admit, no other has a sun shining so bright even in the middle of winter. And that's one of the things that keep you in lines.

Anyway, I have a piano lesson, so I will write a bit tomorrow, and post some photos I want!! See you!!!

Cute Blog Award

After being awarded the Kreativ blog award and reaching 50 followers, now I am being awarded the Cute blog award! It was really kind of Emma to pass it on to me!

  1. Link back to the person who gave you this award. La vie, style et beaute.
  2. Answer award questions.
  3. Award as many blogs you think deserve this award.
  4. Make sure you let those you give this award know that you awarded them.
  5. Tell something you have never told before in your blog.

1. What is your go to make up product?
Uhm, I have to say that I don't understand the question, but if this means favourite product, I am saying for sure: MAYBELLINE NEW YORK- FALSIES BLACK DRAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think now you will never forget it, I have said it so many times, that I think I would change favourite product only not to say it once more......

2. What's your favourite fashion trend of 2011?
Uhm, I probably liked the one with blazers, the colorful blazers...Yeah, that was my favourite, although I don't have one.

3.What is your favourite dessert?
I love choclates, macaroons, muffins and cupcakes! And pancakes...

4. Favourite color?
My faourite color, it's really hard to tell. I love vibrant colors this period....Like ocean blue, hot pink and bright colors.I still don't like red, nowhere, from clothes to book covers. Dark reds are nice in nail polishes. Purple is nice in room walls. Green is fine on the pavements.

5. What is your middle name?
Uhm here in Greece, it's not very common to give middle names, so, like most of the people, I only have first and last. However Eleni is called in different ways all over the planet, and since I study english and french, I feel like Helene or Elen or Eline is like my middle name.

6. What was the last song you listened to?
It was Swagger Jagger by Cher Lloyd.

7. Cats or Dogs?
Cats! However my parents won't let me own one...

One thing I have never mentioned in my blog.
Uhm, I am very unlucky and 2011 was the top of all my lack of luck. It seemed like the worst year to me. My friend's mother died, she had cancer and she was 43 years old. Then my best friend died in the summer, and he was 16 years old........

Blogs I am awarding

There are many other blogs I want to award as well, but those are some of my favourites! Thank you for awarding this to me Emma once more! 

Bises, Helene!!

First change for 2012

Today I woke up in a great mood. I was actually going to visit my hairdresser's after a long time! I haven't cut my hair since october.....It is a long time indeed.
I had decided it a week now, I must do a change, and yes, I did! I changed the haircut, and now it is a bit shorter..... But  one picture is equal to 1000 words, so let the speak themselves....

My t-shirt:

T-shirt LOVE SUN & FRUITS- Zara
Scarf- United Colors Of Benetton

By the way, I want to say a huge "THANK YOU" to my 50 followers! :)

A warm day

First outfit post of the year! Yay!

It was really warm the last days, so I took the chance to wear the new clothes I had bought on Saturday. A pair of really bright jeans and a new T-shirt, both from Zara. 10 days of discount was a very good reason to give in the temptation to enter the shops, and once I was in, I wanted quite a lot of things!

When I saw this pair of jeans, I immediately fell in love with it! I mean, I rarely buy jeans, so it really got me excited! Then I couldn't think whether I have a t-shirt to match it, so I ended up waiting at the cashier's with a couple of things. I was a bit bored to take photos, so I created a collage of my look. It's not very good, but it is the first time I use

Outfit Look- School Day
Zara jeans- 20 euros.
Zara tshirt- 10 euros.
Oozoo watch- 30 euros.
Urbanears headphones (plattan)- 75 euros.
the necklace I was wearing is like this one.mine was from Accessorize- 15 euros.
my ballerine shoes, not these- 20 euros.
a Bershka grey blazer- 30 euros.
Jansport backpack- 25 euros.

I wasnt really wearing the very same clothes, my shoes and blazer were different but....About the headphones, I don't have these, I have another model of urbanears (Tanto).

I bought it from Athens...
Now I have to go...Or I will be late to my volleyball practise!

This was my outfit! I hope you are having a good week already, see you!

Jour 30e.

I'm glad the beauty challenge is over! My favourite nail polish: Manhattan colors!

Do you like the colors?? I had made a previous post about Manhattan Cosmetics...Just click here!
Kisses, Elen!

Jour 29e.

Today I have to post about a make up look I wanna try.  I love quite a lot looks, but these days I love the most more dramatic looks that emphasize on eyes. Im a  bit too young to try the looks below, but when I grow older I might do some of them...

The first ones are more avante garde, but I love them! In the past I used to be a great Tokio Hotel fan, and I must admit some of their songs seem nice to me until now.Lady Gaga, well, you already know that I like her fashion. The othe look is sweeter.... 

What do you think of them? Do you like them?? by the way, I have come up with some ideas about blog music....I will probably post a list of the songs on Monday :)

Jour 19e. - Jour 28e.

Uhm, I don't really know how to start this post... Well, There has been a  lot going on, and I barely could find time to open my pc and check my mail, not even trying to write a single post here... I know, I haven't given any signs of life lately, but I am almost drowned in all of my responsibilities. I now start to realize that holidays are over, and I have to study a lot, practise for piano, and similar stuff... I really wanna keep up with the good work at my school, because that's what matters for now, so I guess I must sacrifice some of my free time. It's not a big deal.....

About the Beauty challenge.... It is almost over, and I must admit I am really glad. I really loved this whole thing with the posts, but it started to be really tiring after some time, because I am not capable of being here, at this blog, everyday. As I said at my first post about it, the biggest challenge for would be to write a bit everyday. As it seems, I haven't succeded up to this point.....

DAY 19.
My favourite look from the beauty expert. Actually its the video I posted last time...

Grigoris always makes really good looks, but this one is definitely on my list to try.....

DAY 20.
Being a lover of this beauty expert means I am a lover of Maybelline products. It is a fact that I also love Manhattan products, but when it comes to mascara, Maybelline New York is top.

My latest favourite mascara is M.N.Y Falsies black drama. It gives incredible volume, and it really makes your lashes look like fake.

DAY 21.
My favourite lipstick... It is a bit difficult to choose, since I never wear a lipstick. However, I have a favourite gloss.

Manhattan, Water effect gloss No. 46D

It gives you the same result as a lipstick, only that it is quite more shiny.

DAY 22.
My beauty tips for a big night out??
1. If you are planning to stay a long time outside home, make sure your make up product has a big duration.
2. Better avoid wearing glosses, and prefer lipsticks, because they have bigger duration. Make sure that they are moisturizing. If you want some shine, carry with you a gloss.
3. Personally, I always carry with me an eye pencil and a gloss, just to refresh my look after some time.
4. Carry with you some special tissues to remove make up, in case you have any unpredicted accident.

DAY 23.
Once more, I am going to talk about Maybelline. MY favourite mascara happens to be the make-up item I bought in a great bargain. It costed 15 euros, and I bought it at 10! That's what I call a good bargain :)

DAY 24.
I feel really stupid now. I have to tell you my favourite beauty product, and my newest beauty product. Guess what, my favourite is MNY mascara Falsies Black drama! My newest is a Seventeen nail polish.

It was given to me, as a New Year's present, by my aunt, with some earrings.

DAY 25.
My beauty regime. There are many things I do, every single day. First of all, when I wake up, I wash my face with a special soap the dermatologist gave to me, and it's special for acne and black spots. Then, I apply some NIVEA products, which are : -A stick called bye bye spot, and as you can understand I apply it only on the red spots
- A moisturizing cream from the same series.
At school, during each break I go to the toilets and I apply the NIVEA stick. When I get home, I wash my face with the special soap I mentioned before, and once more I apply NIVEA products.( moisturizing cream and stick). After the afternoon lessons (piano, volleyball and similar stuff), when I get home I wash my face with the soap, then I apply pure alcohol to kill any bacteria left ( I know this seems a bit silly, but it's all advice of the dermatologist). Finally, after the alcohol I apply  some Betadine medicine on my red spots. In case I have used any make up products, I use a special demaquillage lotion, before washing up with the soap.

For the NIVEA products click here: One of my previous posts.

DAY 26.
An item from my wish list. An item from my wish list would be this lcute classic Burberry trench coat.

DAY 27.
My favourite skin care product. That's easy. Well, it is definitely this cute cream, which did a great job to me. However my dermatologist said I didn't have to use it anymore, and now I don't. But it still remains my favourite, and is definitely the most effective.

HYDROVIT- anti acne cream, for oily and mixed skin.

DAY 28.
ARGHHHHH! Third time in the same post, that I say the same thing. MY FAVOURITE EVER BEAUTY PRODUCT IS MNY MASCARA FALSIES BLACK DRAMA!!!!!!! oh.... wait...... I have another favourite product, which is actually the same beloved.... It's MNY mascara  Lash Stiletto! They are both my favourites and I can't choose between them. First one gives incredible volume, and means a lot to me, because it was the first mascara I ever tried, and second gives incredible length and glossy look. When I have to go out for any reason, I might not wear make up, but I always wear some mascara. I love it! And most of the times I randomly choose.

That was all.... It must have been my biggest post until now, and luckily it is over.....Only 2 days are left for the B.C to finish. Feeewww, what a relief.....

By the way, do you have any favourite songs??? I don't know what to put on my blog.....

New Year, New start...

I wish you all had a great New Year's eve!!! Me, I had a great time with friends, and I hope that 2012 will be as good as the first day! Anyway, as the title says, with a new year, there is a new start. And what's better than making a new start with your blog???
So, I decided to change it completely, but still I am not done...I wanna add some music, but I have no idea what it will be...My new name is Living in a fairytale.I know this doesnt remind a lot of Paris, but it's ok! I had alot of trouble with the width and all this stuff, so I finally am able to prsent my blog at...uhm...precisely 00.00 (greek time)!! I managed to fix, although it took me enough time....
My new  blog:
1. is named Living in a Fairytale.
2.has some follow buttons, and if  you are kind enough,you could help me perhaps?
3.needs some music, so any suggestions are acceptable! I would be glad if you had any :)

I am also creating a silly thing, which I call "label collection". It's nothing more than a notebook, full of labels. You know, I've wanted to start something like this for many years, and now I finally started it.I've already filled two pages, with labels. Most of them are from Zare, but it's ok, because they are funny :P I know, I am completely random, but before you had read this, you should firstly read the brief description on the profile.

Anyway, that's all for now, if you have any ideas please comment or email me!
Just a note: I am not posting anything about the beauty challenge these days, but I promise I will tomorrow!
