I am pretty sure by now you know ALL about this collection. It's been a must-see/must-have ever since it was announced and every self respected fashionista has at least one item of the collection in her wishlist. It was one of the MOST expected H&M collaborations and possibly the only chance for us mortals to get our hands on a Balmain designed item. Like a self respected fashionista myself, I couldn't miss the press event that H&M organised in Athens. So I got up, chose my H&M outfit, got my hair done with sapphire by Irresistible Me and here is what happened. I hope I stressed how fabulous the H&M events are on my previous post. Do I need to do it again or can I start with the collection? For those of you who live under a rock (cause that's the only way you've missed the massive hype for this) here are the items. I was at the party and I had a chance to buy the collection! Well, I didn't. For starters it was gone in minutes and I couldn't justify to myself such a buy. Ok, I love almost everything. I can easily see myself wearing them but that'd only be for my blog. Case of "all dressed up and nowhere to go". I don't think that qualifies as a smart buy for my wallet even though the quality is very very good..I did get a complimentary super cool beanie I absolutely love! But, of course I couldn't leave H&M without buying something (I might have an addiction to that brand...).  Ok I certainly have an addiction to that brand, I am typing while wearing my H&M PJs (so fab) and on top of those my H&M dressing gown because I am cold. My slippers are H&M too. Yup, addicted person here. I REGRET NOTHING! This was a long post sorry (not). Now let me make it longer by showing you da photos and video!

What is better than an exclusive party with lovely drinks and tasty finger food? Discounts on the most fab pieces of today's fashion. And as a bonus Kristina Bazan from Kayture was there too! Such a sweet girl and inspiring blogger. All in all, I think H&M got the perfect party idea!(Guys at H&M central take notes and give this team a raise!) Seriously, this was hands down the best H&M event and the store is superb.  It's so big that it's quite easy to get lost in there (I did,). If you go with friends, make sure you keep tabs on one another, I lost mine several times. That of course was mostly my fault because CLOTHES! Oh come on who can resist a good discount and sarcastic tees or comfy sweaters?I can't, I stopped at every corner to stare at an item and don't let me start on their beauty department...You have got to see it. With Tamta opening the night music-wise and DJ Kas and DJ Young closing the night with more dancing music it was a gorgeous night. I'll give you an idea of what went down with photos. Did I mention there were gift bags as well? ;)

My outfit for the night? Well you can find it at H&M of course (all but the shoes)

October is Breast Cancer awareness month and I used the most popular Mean Girls line to get your attention.. Because apparently we have yet to learn to educate ourselves and our kids to go to the doctor’s for checkups. We need a whole month of pink ribbons everywhere to honour those who have lost the fight because they didn’t check themselves, those who have lost the fight because the regular checkups didn’t caught it, those who have lost the fight because they had no money to afford the treatments. We need a month of pink to honour those who have survived. We need a month of pink to remember that we are not invulnerable, we are fragile. We really need to start taking better care of ourselves. 

Breasts, boobs, boobies, tatas, melons, the girls, bazookas, call them whatever they need attention.


It was a challenge for me to take up this sponsored opportunity by Glamulet while they are generously donating 50% of this month’s earning from pink charms to charities that support breast cancer awareness. Not because I have my own story to tell and it's sentimental, mostly because I don’t. Truth is, I haven’t lost anyone really close to me. I haven’t seen anyone wither at the hands of this disease and turn around victorious. I was lucky to be raised in times when it is expected of me to go to the doctor for a yearly checkup. My school organized a seminar once, thanks to one of our teachers’ initiative and I learned a lot of things besides the basics that my parents taught me. Like how to properly self-exam my breasts. I am lucky to have health insurance that allows me to do checkups and consult with doctors if anything happens. I know that, not all of us have those privileges. Some of us don’t have time. I know, it’s a lame excuse when you face something so serious, but let’s face it, it’s not easy running a family and working! We postpone it, until it’s too late or until something happens. PLEASE DON’T. Go check yourselves, go to the doctors. I’m not going to bore you with stats, by now you know that, when caught early you have more chances!




What to do for yourself:

Besides regular mammograms? Easy! Ladies, you know your bodies better than anyone. While mammograms are more probable to detect anything before you can feel a lump, it is a good practice to give yourselves self-exams and get used to how your body feels and looks. That way you will be more alert and will notice any changes should they occur. Here are the instructions for a self-exam. Educate yourselves on the matter. The internet nowadays has every information you might need, however, it is better if you talk with a doctor. They will hear your questions and will be able to help you, guide you and ease your fears better than the random internet stranger (yes, including me, I know nothing).

What to do for others:

Do you know anyone who has cancer? Be with them, don't let them give up. Ask doctors, nurses, anyone who might know, how to help them. They need one hell of a moral support. Have you thought about donating money or time? You could volunteer for one or more of this month’s events, they happen in most countries and big cities so if you have time, go for it. You can volunteer time on Breast Cancer Charities all year long. If you are busy and have no time you can also donate money to your local charities, research centers etc, and you can also buy a Glamulet charm. They donate 50% to charities and you get a lovely charm to show your support as well! These are my favourites from their collection:

Happy October aaaand... I CUT MY HAIR! And yes it's a huge deal for me because I have issues with my hair (I mean, look at my blog's title, that says it all). But between work and other obligations I didn't find the time to post my last two photoshoots with long hair. And it's a shame really because I look awesome. Yes, I look awesome and I am shameless about saying so. And so should you! When you feel like you look awesome you flaunt yourself! Walk with confidence ladies! I took a chance with this skirt and it weirdly worked out well. I actually didn't think it'd look good on me. But it does! And it makes look like a have small waist and bigger chest, because of the way the straps hug my body. When I searched for ideas on how to style this skirt from CHOIES everyone wearing it was skinny or was wearing it with black opac tights. Yeae boost for confidence! What else is going on in this post? Oh yes!The sunglasses. They are so light I always forget them. Sili sunglasses so far have endured my mess of a handbag and a fall. I am clumsy I know.... they come in a beautiful hard case and a pouch to protect them from scratches if the case doesn't fit your bag. Ordering is easy and I love that I get to design my own unique sunglasses. Even if I went for matte black, you can go for hot pink, white, blue etc and combine frames, lenses and arms. I suggest you take a look at both sites and see for yourselves!
