We are in the heart of summer! Everyone needs holidays, a short or a long break, away from the city. I am lucky enough to live in a place where the beach is just a few minutes away and every day could be like holiday. I had a serious cold the last three weeks but now I feel much better and so, it’s to time to enjoy the sea, go out with long time no see friends, read more books, take care of my body and face and in general, do things that I love. Let’s see July’s edition loving lately!
Little did I know of Asian culture and of course I didn’t know anything about rich Asians, be it Chinese, Singaporean, or Japanese! The first book of the trilogy and author’s debut novel it’s all about the life, scandals, wealth and drama of Nick’s family and of other Asian rich families. Nick, one of Asia’s most eligible bachelors invites his girlfriend Rachel, a professor of economics in NY, to go with him to Singapore. Rachel doesn’t know how rich Nick is (and he is crazy, crazy rich) and her dreamy trip won’t be so fun and relaxed as she thought it would be! She has to deal with Nick’s family, mean girls-rivals, hot gossips and plenty of drama. But the book is funny, entertaining and easy to read, just like watching a TV series, perfect for the lazy evenings by the beach.
I love Chloé’s perfumes and I own already a few pieces but never tried any shower gel or body lotion before. Last month I won a giveaway on twitter, and thank’s to Dave I had the chance to try my first Chloé perfumed shower gel, the Roses de Chloé. Although I tend to have one or two quick showers during the summer days, there are some days also that I love to stay longer in my bathroom and pamper my self. In days like these my new favorite shower gel is, of course, the Roses de Chloé. From the packaging, very chic and modern as Dave noted, to the perfume notes to the longevity of it, I love everything about it. The scent of roses, like a spring bouquet, the white amber along with bergamot and damascena, make this perfume feminine, delicate and romantic.
I like multi-purpose products and what’s better during summer than a 2-in-1 exfoliator and mask which just in a few minutes gives you the best results. If I apply a thin layer, massage my skin and then rinse, it works perfectly as a scrub and offers me a clean, bright and smooth skin. When I apply a thick layer, I live it on for 5-10 minutes. The mask absorbs and dry quickly and then I rinse the thin layer that has remained on my face. My face looks fresh and nourished, my skin tone is brighter without any dryness. The mask contains Jojoba Beads which exfoliate effectively without aggravating the skin and Shea butter in order to hydrate and smooth even the sensitive skin types.
Handmade bracelet-Eros by Afroditi**
One of my favorite jewelry pieces I like wearing during summer are beaded bracelets and bracelets in general. A couple of weeks ago I have kindly gifted some beautiful handmade pieces from Afroditi, the founder, owner and creator at Eros by Afroditi. I love how precious and unique every piece is, and yes indeed, every piece is unique as you will never find two similar pieces. Besides the jewelry she creates, (necklaces, rings, etc.) Afroditi can also embellish almost everything, such as t-shirts, bags and clutches, shoes, and many more. Currently shipping is available only in Greece and here is her Instagram profile.
The first bracelet is made by a technique called macrame and it’s embellished with hematite stones. It’s a pretty and symmetrical bracelet which needs time and dedication to create it. The next three pieces are made with hematite stones and a few other different materials as corals, crystals or jade. All the bracelets have adjustable closure so it’s easy to tighten them around my wrist just by myself. These pieces are dainty and charming and of course, I can wear and combined them with any casual or elegant outfit.
