My favorite face sunscreen

Daily skincare routine! Let’s see…removing my makeup, check! Washing my face, check! Applying moisturizer, check! Ok, I am ready now! Am I?… Of course I am not!

One thing I can not live without is sunscreen! But is it so important? As we all know, the ozone layer is depleting and the harmful rays of the sun can cause cancer and make the skin look discolored, dry, blotched and prematurely aged. So this is why the use of sunscreen is necessary every day!

The one I am using at the moment for my face is by Frezyderm and it is truly incredible! The texture is so velvety and matifying, that you can’t even feel it in your skin. It has SPF 30, which offers high protection, it is water resistant, paraben free and the packaging is very useful and chic, if you compare it with other sunscreens. The only thing I don’t like so much is the scent, which is not so overpowering, so I can handle it!

I think that this particular sunscreen is amazing, but honestly no matter which suncream you’ll choose, remember to protect your skin from the sun and show the love it deserves!

The Carvela Kurt Geiger Ankle Boots

Black ankle boots: definitely a must have fashion piece for all the ladies out there. And why ANKLE boots? Well, let’s be honest… it’s not always so comfortable to wear a huge pair of boots all day long! Sometimes I feel like my feet are imprisoned! So I was desperately searching for a nice pair of ankle boots and…I found the perfect one in Topshop, when I visited London!

I am talking about the Carvela Kurt Geiger black leather ankle boots that I fell in love with! They have the perfect heel (not too high) which make them super comfortable, they suit with every single one of my outfits, they are waterproof and really stylish! I highly recommend them!

Current makeup favorites

So, let me tell you what I am loving at the moment…
1. Golden and black soft eyeliner pencil from Korres ( I love using the gold one in the inner corners!)
2. The body shop bronzer ( I like the fact that it is matte)
3. White musk perfume oil from The Body Shop ( best scent EVER!!!)
4. A random but really cute baby blue eyelash curler from Tiger
5. Heat protective cream from Kerastase ( the scent is amazing and I always find that a cream works better than a spray)
6. Maybelline the rocket mascara ( not the best mascara I’ve tried, but it stays all day without smudging!)

So dear friends, these are some of the things I really like and enjoy using almost every day! I would be really happy to know about your favorites!
Have fun and remember to smile!

Goodbye Robin Williams…

Today, i woke up and checked my Twitter just to find out that Robin Williams was found dead…

Words cannot describe how i felt…devastated… One of the greatest actors of all time, one of my favorites is lost. I am not here to find out the reasons, but to remember his excellent work, his unique performances that made all of us laugh and cry, too.

Robin McLaurin Williams was born in Chicago, Illinois, on July 21, 1951. Despite the fact that he was a quiet and shy kid, he attained a scholarship to Juilliard and graduated in 1976.

He started his career as a stand-up comedian, beginning his comedy tours in the early 1970s. Later on, as his audience became bigger, he participated in many television shows such as ”The Richard Pryor Show” on NBC, ”Mork & Mindy” and ”Friends”. He appeared at Lincoln Center with Steve Martin and headlined a one-man show in Broadway (Robin Williams: Live on Broadway). Of course, we cant’ forget that this man is also a big part of our childhood memories, as he gave his voice to Genie in the animated Disney film ”Alladin” and inducted as a Disney Legend. Except of all that, Robin Williams is mostly known from his films, and the variety of the roles he personated, both comedic and dramatic. He was Popeye, a Soviet Russian circus musician in Moscow on the Hudson, he was our captain and taught us the idea of carpe diem in Dead Poets Society. We flew with him when he played Peter Pan, we laughed with him when he became the lovely Mr. Doubtfire, we lived an adventure in Jumanji and we cried in Good Will Hunting….

In other words this one of a kind actor, this lovely, intelligent human, with his outstanding performances and the truly unique personality filled our heart with emotions! We will always remember him as one of the greatest actors of all time!

Rest in Peace Robin
