AtHeNs BaSiCs HauL: Blanco, Bershka, etc

For some reason i felt the urge to buy cardigans in every color i could find! I think this will be my signature look for winter.. black skinny jeans, white shirt, a cardigan and a scarf.... Boring... i know but simple enough to keep me comfortable throughout the long working days..

12.95 euros from Blanco.

14.95 euros each from Blanco.

9.95 euros from Bershka.

9.95 euros from Bershka.

Sorry for the poor quality. The photos really don't do any justice to the clothes!

AtHeNs HnM HauL

I tried to pick out a few "classic" pieces that i could wear for a couple of years and not just one season as I usually do. So only time will tell ...

I think this dress at only 29.95 euros was a great deal. The quality is great and i think it looks a lot more expensive.

24.95 euros. I bought this to wear with my high waisted black harem pants. Or a black mini skirt with black tights.

24.95 euros. I will probably wear this to work with black skinny jeans, ballerina flats and a black belt.

24.95 euros. I've already worn this out to a work dinner with my dark blue skinny STAFF jeans, my beige platform wedges and my pearl hoop earrings.

14.95 euros. I'll probably wear this with leggings,black boots or black ballerina flats and a black belt above the waist.

9.95 euros. This shirt is 100% organic cotton. I'll only probably wear it on weekends with a pair of jeggings. It looks so comfortable. It reminds me of something Alexa Chung would wear.

14.95 euros. The picture does not do this dress/top any justice. It is so cute. I will wear it with black leggings, the brown boots i bought and with a skinny brown belt above the waist.

9.95 euros. I will also wear this with a skinny brown belt above the waist. a white top underneath and my black skinny jeans.

14.95  euros. I will probably wear this  over my sleeveless dresses when I go clubbing in the winter.

9.95 euros. Black jeggings!

9.95 euros.

3.95 euros. 100% organic.

49.95 euros. I love this coat!

The only thing that is left now is for Fall/Winter to finally get here!!!

AtHeNs ShOe & aCCeSoRiEs HauL: HnM. Accesorize. Chinese Wholesale Shop. etc

From HnM: Hello Kitty hair brush, Hello Kitty nail files and Betty Boop Pomgranate Berries Body Splash.
Each 2.95 euros.

From HnM: Black belt (9.95eur). Flower (2.95eur). Pink and black berets (2.95 eur each).
Silver hoops (1.95eur). Black, Gold and Pearl hoops (5.95eur).

I was looking for a little wallet like this for the longest time. My brown leather Guess wallet just weighed down my bag for no reason. I can fit my ID in this, my debit card, some cash and change. All i need! It was 12.50 euros from ACCESORIZE. 

I fell in love with this sleep mask as soon as I saw it in ACCESORIZE. It reminds me of the sleep mask Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's! I'm such a fan of that movie so i had to have it! It was 8.90 euros.

I bought all these pieces from a Chinese wholesale shop. In total i spent 28 euros! The pieces are gorgeous but you can't tell from my crappy camera. I have the same exact hoop-diamond earrings. I bought mine for 25 euros and these were only 4 euros! So i bought another pair just in case! The pink, silver, and black rings were only 3 euros each. I know for sure that they sell them at least for 20 euros. I love pearl bracelets but i don't wear pear necklaces so i don't know why i bought two of them! The turquoise earrings are not something i would wear every day but i thought that they looked so cute.

I also got this 10 euro earring stand at the Chinese Wholesale Shop. It's already full of earrings. 

Black boots 30 euro. Brown over the knee boots 40 euro.

10 euro dark greyish ballarinas bought in a Monastiraki shop.

AtHeNs CoSmEtiCs HauL: Korres. Apitiva. L'Oreal

I repurchased 2 tubes of my favourite mascara (that definitely deserves the hype) L'oreal Voluminous because they don't sell it where i live. Plus it was only 10 euros each (3 euros cheaper than the Athens Duty Free).

I found a great offer in Athens Duty Free...4 full size KORRES products for 60% off. I only spent 23 euros! The package included: Multivitamin Compact Powder Lightweight Matte Finish (shade: MVP2), Ginger & Vitamins Lightweight Foundation SPF10 (shade: LF3), Wild Rose Concealer (shade: WRC3) and Mango Butter Lipstick SPF10 (shade: 12 Frost Pink).

The shop assistant there was kind enough to give me a couple of samples because i told her i wanted to try the KORRES brand for a while now. The samples i got: White Tea Facial Fluid Gel cleanser, Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Antiwrinkle Night Cream and Acacia Milk Conditioner for dry hair.

At the drugstore next to our hotel i bought 3 KORRES 10 ml packs for only 4 euros! i got Pomegranate Facial Scrub and Mask for oily/combination skin and Yogurt Mask for normal/combination skin.

At the drugstore for only 6 euros i also got 4  8ml packets of APIVITA "express beauty deep cleansing mask with green clay"  and 2  10ml packets of APIVITA "anti-oxidant face mask with tomato". If you are not familiar with the APIVITA brand they are also a greek brand like KORRES that believe in natural, pure products. The masks i bought are paraben,silicone, propylene glycol free.

At some point (after i use up all the products i have in my skincare drawer) i only want to use healthy, natural products because my skin is so sensitive and irritated all the time and i hope that will be the answer to all my skin problems. Plus i prefer supporting companies that don't shove a bunch of chemicals, that will eventually harm you, into their products.

If you are interested i will be happy to review any of these products. Have you tried the KORRES or APIVITA brands? What are your thoughts on "natural" cosmetics?
