China Glaze "Aquadelic" Swatches.

China Glaze's "Aquadelic" is a gorgeous vibrant mint shade. This is my first time using China Glaze polishes and I must say that I'm freakin' IMPRESSED!

These polishes kick ass, they glide on smoothly and you don't have to wait hours for them to dry. They are enriched with hardeners giving off a solid finish. Will definitely keep adding these to my collection!

To give my nails a special kick I used H&M's new polish "Sparkling Rainbow" on my ring finger.

Bambi Princess Mimi Sesame Grey Lenses Review.

Hey Dolls! Some time ago Shoppingholics sent me these gorgeous grey lenses to try out. I've been wanting to try out gyaru type lenses for a long time so this was the perfect chance!

I had never tried on lenses before so this definitely was an experience. Circle lenses have a bigger diameter in order to give a doe-eyed look so putting them on can be a bit tricky the first time. Then it's just a matter of practice.

Some basic info on theses lenses:

Brand: GEO
Origin: South Korea

Water content: 38% - 42%

Diameter: 15.0 mm
Base Curve: 8.7
Duration: 1 year disposable 

These lenses cost only $24 and for their 1 year duration it's an amazing price. I find them really comfortable to wear and a great way to alter my look whenever I want. I really can't wait to try more colors!

Have you tried circle lenses? Would you? Would love to hear your thoughts!

My Ombre Hair Transformation.

Hey Dolls! As you all know I recently changed my hair color and went for an ombre look. I have never ventured into doing anything bold to my hair and always kept it a classic jet black and always swore by it too. But I always admired ombre hair and thought to myself if I was going to try something I would like to try that. So I went for it!

I'm going to explain all the stages I went through to achieve my final look.

At first I went to a hair salon and they did a horrible job. They had absolutely no idea what the hell ombre is (even the famed Nicolas salons didn't know when I called them). I went equip with photos and all I got was my hair 1 hour in bleach 40% peroxide. As time went by and I felt my hair go on fire I ended up with something no way near to what I wanted: half of my hair turned FUCKING ORANGE.

DAFUQ? This was NOT what I had in mind.

So I then went to a hairstylist friend of mine who fixed the problem and did an amazing job. I get countless comments on my ombre hair he is so damn talented!

First he bleached my hair with 20% peroxide to remove all the orange from my hair. Then another bleach again with 20% peroxide. If you have black hair and go right away to a 40% bleach your hair turns orange like what happened to me. You have to go gradually with a 20% bleach.

Of course with all the bleaching process my ends got burned and had to chop off some of my hair. My hair had gotten super long (waist/butt length) and I hadn't cut in almost a year so I didn't mind.

To finish off the whole process my hairdresser put a reflet dye to even out the ombre ends and to soften up my black hair from all the blue black dye.

And Voila! Ombre hair fixed and accomplished!

Shitty orange ends!
Almost there...

Sweet Strawberry Milk Snack.

Hey Dolls! Now that it's Spring and we are full of fresh strawberries I wanted to share a recipe of a favorite snack of mine. The recipe is Japanese, I don't remember what it is called but it's simply delish and very easy to make.

You will need:

- Strawberries
- Milk
- Sugar

Wash strawberries and remove stem. Place them in a bowl.
Add sugar (as much as to your liking). I use raw cane brown sugar for dietary reasons.

Add milk.

Mash up all your ingredients with a fork. You can add more milk if you want to, I always do.  Enjoy!

Mini Vacation: Andros

Hey Dolls! This week I went on a mini vaca to the island of Andros. It was only for 2 days but just to have the opportunity to soak up such beauty, it was just great! The weather was fantastic and gorgeous views of the sea was breathtaking. Thought I'd share some pictures I took :)

The view from the house I was staying at, amaze!

This was a sign outside of the cinema at Andros, totally cracked me up. For my non-greek readers it says: "Don't pee here cause now I can make you lick it". LOL.

The hora of Andros.

Gold Sand Beach.

Gold Sand Beach.
I had my first swim of the Summer at this amazing beach. Crystal clear waters and truly, golden sand! The water though was freakin' freezing, it's too early for the waters to be warmer. It took me 15 minutes to get in until my waist. Then I kinda wet my arms like an old lady and was like: "Fuck this shit I'm outta here" and spent the rest of the time sunbathing in the sun where it was WARM :P 

The lovely view from my bedroom.
