The history of make-up


Hello everyone!

Did you know that make-up has been around for at least 6,000 years?  Throughout history women, and men, have put their health at risk with many homemade cosmetics.  In some cultures, for example, women used arsenic, lead, mercury, and even leeches to look "beautiful".  Thankfully, we've come a long way!  Check out the infographic below to find out where make-up started, and how it got to where it is today.

Overnight hair treatments

Hello everyone!

When your hair need some extra TLC, (especially if you heat style a lot) there's nothing better than overnight deep conditioning!

Once or twice a month I apply an  overnight treatment.  If you follow this blog you know that I love coconut oil and my hair loves it too, but I also enjoy trying out new products.  I thought it would be good to share some overnight hair treatments with those of you who are looking for intense repair

'Anassa Boutique - Silver Swarovski Heart Review + OOTD

Hello everyone!

Today I'm reviewing a beautiful jewellery piece.   Ioanna, from 'Anassa Boutique was so kind to send me a product of my choice from her online store for review purposes.  

The company  'Anassa  was created in 2003 by Ioanna Formozi, with the sole purpose to give a unique and different style to women.  

'Anassa provides a variety of unique women's fashion creations including;  skirts, dresses, leather backpacks and necklaces entirely handmade and created in Greece.  I chose to review the Silver Swarovski Heart Necklace.
This gorgeous necklace is one of their bestsellers!  It's a unique handmade short necklace (26 cm) made of  silver coloured beads and pearls, featuring an original Swarovski crystal heart.  I love this necklace because not only is it a very good quality piece; it is also quite versatile.  You can pair it with a t-shirt/blouse and jeans/trousers, and you can also dress it up with a dress and heels.

Today I wore my Swarovski heart 'Anassa necklace with a black lace top, berry coloured skinny jeans, and black biker boots.  With such an eye-catching jewellery piece, I did not feel the need to wear any other jewellery pieces. 

Another way I love to wear my  'Anassa necklace is paired with this black and white dress.  You could also wear it over colour, but I prefer to wear it with a black top or dress.
