♡My Favourite Shoes

  Finally a fashion post and it's gonna be a long one!
  First of all let's clear something out, these are not my most worn shoes or the most practical ones.They may hurt me, I may not even be able to walk steady in them, there is even a pair I've only wore once but I love them and I'm glad to have them anyways!!They are my babies!!
  I will start with a classic peep toe pump from Burberry.Now this is a pair that I wore a lot.It may appear classic and conservative but it's very sexy when worn!And that's my favourite style as you will see the classic-sexy-chic.

    The next one is a gold glittery one fron Dolce & Gabbana.They look perfect with a tan.

 Glitter again!!This time from Zara and they come with a 14cm heels!!They're not very steady for walking but they're pretty comfortable when I'm just standing.I call these my Cinderella shoes 'cause they're just so glittery and pretty!

 Next ones are pink suede with some beige and silver details.They're Gianfranco Ferre and they're so cute!

 For the typical summer shoes a.k.a. the espadrilles  I have these.They're not the Alex from Stuart Weitzman  the're just wannabes :) I bought them fron Haralas and the brand is (I think) Ioannis.The're quite comfortable to walk in and they go with anything!!

 Next ones are very sophisticated night-only imo.Rodo is an Italian brand known for their Swarovski crystal details.And it's these crystals that pump up their prices..

                                                                  The Boots.
  They're not sexy,they might not even be chic but they're very comfortable and I love them.First pair are my beloved short Uggs in sand.Not much to say,we all know and most of us love them!

  Second pair are equestrian boots from Tommy Hilfiger.I bought them years ago and I used to wear them all the time.Nowdays I only wear them when I go horseback riding,which is very rare but I still love them!

                              I love the red/bordeaux detail on the top.I didn't want a beige-brown one.

                                                            The most favourite ones.

     These ones are my 2 most favourite pairs and the least worn ones.Funny non??First pair I bought from Carla G and I've only wore once.Yeap, you read right,only once.They hurt from the very first minute I wear them and I had to pay an extortionate price because of the semi precious stones,yet I still love them to pieces.

  Words cannot describe how much I love these shoes!They're my most favourite Christian Louboutins I own.When worn they have the most perfect toe cleavage and they just scream French chic/ Haute Couture shoes.Well at least imo :)

The one thing I don't like though is how the red soles turn after worn a couple of times.

  Last pair is an essential this time of the year.Yes, you guessed right,a pair of flip flops for the beach.
They're D&G beachwear .

 P.S. As you can see I always keep the shoeboxes and dustbags for storage and travel purposes.Plus I stuff the shoes with paper (pink of course!)  in order to keep their shape.

  So what are your favourite shoes?Do you prefer practicality over looks?Do you have shoes that you never wear but love them anyway??

Atelier de Beauté Seminar for MUAs and Bloggers

 Hello Belles! I just wanted to post some new photos from the Atelier De Beaute - Επαγγελματικά Προϊοντα Μακιγιάζ seminar that i attended. We were shown some new techniques and also got to try their proffesional makeup products.Let me just say that I LOVE their foundations!!! I was given to try their High Definition Foundation* that can also be used with an airbrush system and it's nothing I've ever tried(plus Wayne a.k.a. Gossmakeupartist often raves about their products)!! But more on that on another post and video.

These are their pastel products that can be mixed with water for a very intense result.

Some photos of the makeup techiques that we were shown.

This techique was so easy yet very impressive and many girls tried it after the seminar!

The lovely Nasia from Nastiasvanity.Her makeup was done with their pastel products.

                                        and her gorgeous rings that she made and promised to make a how to diy video!!

      and the lovely Tania Tso with the pencil technique on her eyes.I've never heard of the pencil technique before and I was very impressed by the result.

                                  Ευγενία Μπαρμπαγιάννη the President of Atelier de Beaute.

                                                And the oh so beautiful MUA Victoria

And moi!! Victoria used their blue gel eyeliner on me.I really liked the double wing she did.These gel eyeliners are waterproof and boy they really are!I didn't take me makeup off that night (shame on me!) and when I woke up this liner was still in place.
