Photoblog Day 9: A place you visited.

Unfortunately due to a busy schedule I haven't been blogging as much as I would like to, but hopefully that will change. I'm going to jump a bit further down on the Photoblog days and return back to where I was. A place I visited recently that I find beautiful and unique is the Acropolis. It was just after the celebration of one of my best friend's Panos' birthday that we decided to hike up to Athens' most famous monument around 6 am. It was a gorgeous sight to see! I really enjoy walking around Athens' ancient landmarks during the Fall. For me it's the best season. Last night I was at the Galaxy Bar on the roof garden of the Hilton Hotel, gazing on the beautiful view of the Acropolis once again. I should have taken a picture! Next week!

Make Up Removal Trick.

Removing all my make up at the end of a day and having a clean face is really important to me. A clean face helps maintain healthy skin. I often wear a lot of heavy eye make up especially when I'm not wearing false eyelashes, that's when I stack on a lot of mascara. To remove my make up I usually use baby wipes. But wipes alone didn't seem to clean off all my mascara leaving me to wake up with raccoon eyes. So I recently discovered Johnson's baby oil to do the trick and it works like a charm. I just add a few drops to my baby wipe and voila! My heavy eye make up is gone within seconds without straining my skin with a lot of rubbing. I really like the Lavender scented baby oil.

Early Halloween Party.

'Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
~William Shakespeare

When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.
~Author Unknown

Yesterday night I went to an early Halloween party with my best friend Elina and my boyfriend Andreas. We had so much fun, it was clearly the best Halloween party that we have been to. The party was hosted in a house and an entire floor of the house was transformed into a Haunted House. From 3D projections, to smoke and static electricity shocking you, it was an amazing experience. Elina and I got scared many times, we had a blast! I dressed up as Snow White, Elina as a vengeful vampire and Andreas as a mobster. It's really amazing to have one day a year where you can dress up and feel as if you are apart of a fairy tale. Can't wait till next Halloween!

Photoblog, Day 3: Something you bought today

Hey Dolls! Today I had my acting lesson downtown so I took the chance to take a stroll along Ermou Street. I stopped by MAC and saw that practically the whole "Venomous Villains" collection was already sold out and it came out this morning here in Greece! But I was looking at swatches from the collection on blogs the other day and I realized that I had the same colored lipsticks from either the permanent collection or from YSL. So now I'm waiting for the Tartan collection. Anyway back to what I bought today. I went into H&M to take a look and really liked a teal colored nail polish (which I was looking for one) and got it. They had the most gorgeous cobalt blue nail polish which I plan on getting next time. They are really affordable at 4 euros a polish. They apply just fine and have got a lovely finish. The name of the polish I got is "Mambo Jambo".

Of course I just had to stop by froyo to get my favorite frozen yogurt with rainbow sprinkles. This dessert always makes my day :)

That's all for today, tomorrow night I'll be going to an early Halloween party so I'll be sure to post pictures and blog about it. Have a good weekend Dolls :)

Photoblog, Day 2: Someone you adore - 5 reasons why

Day 2 of the Photoblog challenge and I'm really excited about this activity. It's always nice to write down things about yourself helping you discover things you never really thought about before. A person I simply adore is my boyfriend Andreas and here are the 5 reasons why:

1. He always makes me smile and makes me feel better when I'm not.
2. He is 100% percent by my side in my every need and helps me deal with whatever problems life may bring. He is a true partner.
3. He can always make me laugh no matter what mood I'm in.
4. He is always thoughtful with tokens of his love.
5. He loves me 100% for the real me :)

October Photoblog Challenge

Dear Dolls,

I have decided to start the October Photoblog Challenge. It's been going around and about on different blogs on the net and I think that it's such a cute idea. I've been meaning to start it earlier but I've been too busy to blog. So I'll be starting it today on October 6th and will be finishing up one month from today, on November 6th which is actually one day before my birthday. I'll try to double posts and speed it up though! So here we go!

Day 1: Self-portrait, share basics/make an intro.

My name is Gina, I'm 25 years old. I was born in Chicago, lived half my life there and have been living the other half so far in Greece. I've studied nursing and acting. I've acted on a couple of shows here in Greece and hope to do some more. My favorite color is purple and I simply love Hello Kitty. And make up. And fashion Oh the list never ends!
