My review on Kylie Cosmetics

Hello everyone
On 18th December I placed an order on kyliecosmetics.com and it’s been 3-4 weeks since it arrived.I live in Greece and it was also the holiday season so I completely understand that my order was shipped a bit later than expected and arrived a few days later than I expected.

Anyways,now I have my cosmetics and that’s the important thing in this whole situation.When they came they were placed in a cute little black box and when I opened it all my lipkits were there.Like,the order was correct and the right shades were sent to me.

So now it’s time to talk about the actual products.I’m a huge fan of Kylie Jenner and I’ve wanted to order some of her products for a long time,so when my father asked me what I wanted for Christmas this year (don’t forget that I’m still a high school student) the answer was simple;Kylie lipkits.

I ordered Ginger,Kristen,True Brown K,Love Bite,Brown Sugar,Heir and Exposed.The total for these was 144$ but I also ordered a holiday Pompom Keychain (10$) and I was lucky enough to get one holiday lipkit called Merry (30$) for free.Additionally, the international shipping was free (yay).

The truth is that I expected to be a bit disappointed by the lipkits but I was wrong.I tried them and I was so impressed because they were all so pigmented & matte and they smell like vanilla ice cream.However,I was disappointed with  Heir ‘s consistency, as it is kind of patchy and nothing like I thought it would be.Something that also triggered me was that it’s so hard to remove them.Luckily my cousin came to the rescue and she suggested me to use some Vaseline to take them off and she also advised me to always wear a lip conditioner before putting them on my lips.

So in general,I am really happy with my purchase and I’m thinking of buying some more cosmetics from Kylie Jenner ‘s site soon.I believe that my favourite shade of them all is Ginger .

What about you?Have you purchased any products from Kylie Cosmetics yet?If not,would you like to?Send me your answers in the comments below 🙂

My Christmas Diary 2016

Hello everyone

Merry Christmas & a very Happy New Year!I wish you only the best and I hope that 2017 will be much better than 2016.

This Christmas my family and I travelled to London and we stayed with my mum’s cousin in Enfield (it’s about an hour away from the city’s centre using the bus & the metro).So today I’m writing about the 7 days I spent in London.Enjoy!
Friday 23/12

Today is the day.We’re finally leaving and no more school for 15 days.I’ve already packed my stuff for London (3 jumpers,3 pairs of jeans,pjs & of course other necessary things).I can’t wait!I’m so excited!We’re leaving at 10:20 p.m. with Ryanair and we’re landing in Stansted airport.

******************************

We now are in the airport of Thessaloniki.We’ve already checked in for our flight and in one & a half hour we’re flying.Omg we’re so close!Now we’ll grab something to eat from a café.

Today we’re going shopping!We’re visiting a mall.We’ll take the bus 329 to Turnpike Lane and we’ll stop to Wood Green.

******************************

Okay okay…I must admit that I’ve spend a bit too much in Primark.But how is it possible to resist to it’s PYJAMA SECTION?Now we’re heading to Weatherspoon café in Wood Green.I feel like ordering a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows on top.Mmmm…

******************************

My family usually has the Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve so we’re having our Christmas dinner tonight!Yay!

Yummy.Our dinner was really good.We had turkey and mash and of course Christmas pudding!It’s actually the second time I eat Christmas pudding and I can tell that I really like it.

 
Sunday 25/12 (Christmas Day)

A very merry Xmas to you all!Today will be a chill day.We’ll stay in our pjs all day long.But we’re going to eat in a Turkish restaurant in Enfield.I’ve never tried Turkish food before and to be honest I’m not looking forward to trying it.

******************************

Oh my Lord!That was so tasty.I had chicken donner with rice and mushrooms and some Caesar’s salad.And I had some chocolate fudge cake for dessert.So yummy!
Monday 26/12

Today is shopping day No.2!We’re visiting a mall (don’t know the name) which is half an hour far from Enfield.We called an Uber so he must be on his way atm.

******************************

We’ve arrived!Now we’re heading to Victoria’s Secret and I’m definitely going to buy some bits.

So today we visited Covent Garden and it was fantastic.I really liked it and I had the best cookie ever from Ben’s Cookies,a little shop in a Covent Garden’s corner.

******************************

 Then we visited Leicester Square,one of my favourite squares in London and of course we visited the M&M shop which is simply amazing for me.I could literally stay there forever eating M&M.

******************************

Later we had lunch in a pub called Lamb & Flag and I had the best chicken schnitzel ever.

Wednesday 28/12

This day was the best of all!We woke up early in the morning and went to London’s centre.We visited Harrods and then Topshop.

******************************

Later we went for a walk at Hyde Park and we saw so many cute little squirrels and ducks.We also visited the Buckingham Palace and the Big Ben.But we walked so much.I mean neither Hyde Park nor Green Park is small,right?

So today is a lovely day but it’s too cold!Nevermind we’ll be fine.We’re going to Enfield’s mall this time and I can’t wait to do my last shopping in the UK.

Why I love Autumn

​Hello everyone

It’s been a while since my last post (sorry for that) but here I am today,back with another post.

So it’s been a month since Autumn started and I felt the need to share with you why I love it.But in Greece,as it is located in southern Europe,Fall has just begun (properly).Until now the weather was warm and we would go out wearing just a t-shirt,ripped jeans and even sandals.But it’s been a week now that the weather has changed and it is FINALLY cold!

In general,Autumn is #2 of my 2 favourite seasons (#1 is Winter) and here’s why I love it:

(1.) Orange is everywhere
I don’t know about you but orange is my favourite colour since I was five years old.I know that it’s a bright colour and many people don’t like it but I flippin love it!Especially in Autumn orange is literally everywhere!There are orange sweaters & hats in each and every clothing shop and even the streets are orange thanks to the fallen leaves.Everything is more beautiful this way,isn’t it?


(2.) Rainy days

I am a huge fan of rain.I mean this is what I live for.Unfortunately I don’t live in London,a city famous for its rainy days,and I live in a country,where the sun is shining 300 days out of the 365.So when it rains,I’m literally so happy I go out and dance in the rain like a crazy person.For real.

(3.) Autumn candles

Lighting candles is for sure one of my favourite things to do when I am stressed or just wanna chill out.And what would be better than an Autumn candle to keep you company during the cold evenings of November?Nothing.I have many candles and especially Autumn ones and I love them all.I think I just couldn’t leave without having them!

(4.) Hot coffee & books

So I’ve been thinking…which is the best thing you can possibly do in Autumn?Carving pumpkins?Going for long walks in the rain?Eating Halloween candy?None of them.For me the best thing anyone could do in Autumn is reading good books and drinking hot coffee (or tea).This is the best way to unwind and to escape time.
