Thinspiration…

I know many women (me too) are trying to lose weight. During this process there are many precautions someone must take and some decisions one must make.

First of all, you can lose weight in a healthy or unhealthy way. There are many healthy diets you can find and follow, one that will fit your metabolism because not all the diets are appropriate for everyone. This healthy eating style if is paired with some regular exercise can bring long-termed results and you can finally lose that extra weight you’ve always wanted. But, you must understand that this will take time and constant effort is needed in order to be rewarded with the body of you dreams. Now, the unhealthy way of losing weight consists of eating disorders, diet pills, over-exercising and so much more. Please, if you care about yourself, stay away from this way of achieving a thin body.

Secondly, you must understand how much weight you can lose and still have a fully functional body. Simple put, not all of us have the possibility to be really, really thin. Some of us have curves and places in our body that no matter how thin we become, they will still exist. I, for instance, have an apple-shaped body which means that I gain and maintain weight on the upper portion of my body. Even when I was 29 kg with a 160 cm height, I still had tummy and boobies visible. Even then. (I never had eating disorders, I just didn’t like eating since I was 2 years old. I gained weight when I was 16 years old and now I am 60 kg fat. lol)

Lastly, I know we all try our best to create and maintain a beautiful and healthy body, so here some thinspirational photos for you my friends…

And God knows how much I adore cosplaying!

So, keep up you efforts and don’t give up! 

Stay strong, stay healthy, become thin!

GYAROU AMOUR #2

Hellooooo, 

How are you? It’s been a while, no? Well, I think it’s high time to finish my gyaru post and move on to my next subject ;).

Spring is a wonderful season but, when being out of the sun I still chilly, so a jean jacket and knee-high socks will keep you warm. Awww, this outfit is just so sweet! And remember when pairing a jean jacket (which is a very structured piece of clothing) you want to have at the bottom something with movement like this floral skirt.

Here we have a cowboy-ish look. Brown fits very well with pink. And again you can see here the jean jacket paired with the summer dress.

Those fluffy boots were worn a lot this winter. With some adjustments like these here, you can wear them also during the chilly spring days…

This is definitely a great spring look! And so girlie!

Brown & white & blue. A classic combination that offers many possibilities…

Anyone who knows me, remembers my obsession with crazy hats (like the one in the picture) and the jumpsuits. Well, this is a divine look for me with so much pink in it!

An outfit that reminds me of school uniforms… With a twist of course…

A look more date appropriate. If you want to make him drool that is… 😉

Pink, violet and ribbons? Want them all!!

Plaided skirts were on fashion this winter and I can’t see any reason why not wear them during the spring time too…

If you are a fan of animal print and you want to look more girly than wild, this look is for you!

Cute summer dresses can be worn during the springtime also, paired with jackets and warm high socks.

Another example of a summer dress… With one shoulder this time.

This is a different look that remain girlie as ever…

A look perfect for a date or a walk with friends. 😀

I’ve always wanted a floral backpack, now I know with what it can be paired too…

Gyaru amour.

Hello again! I know it’s been a while since my last outfit inspiration blog entry but I will make it up for it with a huge post. Those of you (and I know that there are a lot) that adore girly outfits, brace yourselves for an overdose is coming!

Long wavy hair, cowboy or safari mood and of course clothes that match this. The animal print details on the shorts are very nice and easy to DIY on your old jeans. Brown shoes, bag, hat and accessories. Sweet. Also, the white tunic with the brown details makes this outfit both sexy and comfortable. Perfect spring outfit. ❤

Feeling like wearing lace and pastel? Just look at the outfit above.Pink, cream, baby blue and the hat… Ahhhh! It makes my girlie heart beat a lot faster. Perfect look for a date or for the times you want to feel both comfortable and girlie.

Wanna live like a girl in a cowboy movie? Blue shirt, brown color and yeah, a cowboy hat! So sweet!!! ❤

You don’t know what to wear at your uni in springtime? Jean shorts, and a beautiful shirt with a thin green jacket with a big jean bag ideal to carry all those notebooks and books.  And high heels with a more fat (is that how is called?) heel ideal to walk in all day.

Flower, flower and some more flower! Spring is all about the earth begining again and everywhere you look there are flowers! So, a spring outfit inspired by this beautiful sight is only natural. This one is for the more cool days when you need something to provide you warmth and still allow you to feel girlie and cute. Pink works very well with brown to create a cute but not over the top look. And I ADORE over the knee socks! ❤

Springtime is not always about sunny weather… Rainy days are here too.Long jeans together with apink corset and pink pumps and a matching umbrella. Could this be any cuter? Now who is gonna be grumpy on rainy days? Not me!

This reminds me of the few weeks I spent working as a secratary… As you already guessed I adore pink color and this skirt is so cute! Matched with the shirt and the sweater the outfit is toned down and looks appropriate for work while still keeping the girlie tone.

Pink polka dot dress with matching shoe and accessories. ❤ Ideal for going out for a coffe or for a walk at the park.

Baby blue is another color I adore. Here a blue ruffled shirt is matched with a brown skirt with blue and brown accessories. I would wear something like that at my work or when going out for a coffe/movie.

A more eccentric yet cute outfit. ❤

Another eye-catching outfit. This one can be turned from day to night outwear. 

An outfit that looks like it is from another decade. The high heels can be changed and the outfit be worn with flats for those of us that walk everyday many miles.

Can say much about this one. I just want to buy everything and wear those clothes all week!

That’s all for now (I have to help my sister organize her birthday party) so, Part #2 of Gyaru amour will be up in the coming days. 

Until then, take care and enjoy yourselves!

 

 

You can call me V.

Hello my macarrons! 

I’m currently watching V for Vendetta, a film I’ve never watched and seems to influence a lot the political resistance these days. Wish I heve seen it earlier because I like to see, understand and then form an opinion about a subject. And since it is talked a lot lately, I decided to give it a try. I mean why not? I’ve watched many crappy movies and this doesn’t look crappy at all.

So far so good. I love Natalie Portman‘s acting. I think she is dedicated and she really makes the character come to life. LOooove. And Hugo Weaving? He played at the Lord of the Rings (<3) and the Matrix. Got to love that man. Not to talk about his sexy voice that comes alive in this movie since you cannot see his face. 

So, I will watch this movie till its very end and then share my views. 🙂 Goodbye for now sweeties.:)

UPDATE:

Well, I guess some of you are wondering whether I liked the movie or not. Others couldn’t care less.

I will talk to those you do not care firstly so since you are the most difficult group. 😛 It is a quite interesting movie and it gives you a boost to think. I mean it is said 2 or 3 times throughout the movie that art is ooften lying to reveal  the truth. So, what if the movie is a metaphor about how our lives are controlled by the others? And what about the power of the words? The power of the ideas? Since someone managed to convince many people that if we all jump at the same time, the earth will change her course, isn’t posible to guide the masses without them noticing? For the better or for the worse. And even those words, better, worse, good, bad are vey subjective. Anyway, I suggest this movie to you if you want to watch an action movie or to you that you want to see below the surface and think some new things. (Of course this movie is not the most thought provoking one but still it is a quite good one)

For those of you that care whether I liked this movie or not, yes I did enjoy it and please read those written above for my fully review. Thank you very much!

Shirt inspiration…

Hello again! I don’t know about you but I’ve always adored the overshized shirts and the baby blue color. So I thought… Why not put them together? And here it is! For your eyes only!

A look perfect for going for shopping/ hang out for a coffee/ going to the university or going for a movie. Love it because is very versatile without being boring.

Going for vacation? Pack those lovely clothes and you have many looks. Just the shirt, a bathing suit, the had and the bag and you’re ready to go to the beach! Add the red dress and you’re ready for the beach bar!

That’s what i was talking about! Seee??

Another look perfect for the beach or for the summer generally… 😀

Do you want to go to work? Baby blue shirt is here for you!

Or maybe you want to go for a date at summer? Here is the look for you!!!

P.S. I know summer is still far away but, come on!, watching these outfits didn’t brighten your day??

Who let the dogs out?

Hello guys!!!

Meet Artsi, he is our 6-years old miniature pinscher (you can read info about his breed if you click on its name) and well, he is the man of my life. I adore him although sometimes he makes me mad…

So, I thought Hey, I am having a dog (and managing to keep him alive) for 6 whole years! I must share what I’ve learnt throughout this journey!

TIPS for all the wannabe dog keepers.

1) Make sure all the family members/people you live with want the puppy/dog
I can not stress enough about how important this is. When we first got our dog, my father didn’t want him. He didn’t want a dog in our house because he didn’t want to be emotionally attached to a pet and then lose it. But after a period with long fights and lots of beggings, finally the dog was mine. [It wasn’t Artsi, our first dog was Brain who died shortly after we took him because of an illness he caught 😥 ] But my father was a little bit concerned and didn’t spend much time with the dog, something that the dog noticed and made him sad… So,, make sure everybody want the dog you are getting and everybody is willing to love and take care of him. [Thankfully my dad changed his mind shortly after and now they are inseperable]

2) Make sure you share the same ideas about how the dog should be trained/behave
Again, my dad is in favour of a more hyper dog, a dog that is always alert and wary of the strangers whereas I love the more docile, cute, lethargic type of dog. Thanks to me being a middle school student when we got him, guess who won. And what type of dog we have.
Yeah, yeah, Artsi is far from docile… He likes hugs of course but only for a short period, he is always alert and jumps around all the time. Not to mention that he doesn’t want anyone new in our house. Sigh… Sometimes this really piss me off but then again, I love with too much ❤

3)  Make sure you will be able to take care of your puppy.
 I know right now the idea of keeping a puppy sounds so wonderful, but are you willing to take care of him for 10-15 years? Because dogs live that much. And dogs need attention and you must share a considerable amount of your time training them, playing with them, loving them. This thing will never end. Don’t forget alo that keeping a dog is quite expensive. You need to pay for its food/visits to the vet/toys/doggy treas/dog house and so many other stuff… Moreover, dogs, especially puppies can be really destuctive as they like to chew and bite everything they found along their road…

[ We were moving out of our house that day that’s why he is on leash and all his stuff are taken away]

4) Make sure you choose the right breed for you.
Not every dog breed is for you. Some are more hyper, some more calm, there are big ones, small ones, medium size ones. You must choose acoording to your character, for instance if you are an athletic person a hyper dog that can accompany you to your walks is prefect whereas if you are a more lay back type you need a calmer one. Of course, every breed’s characteristics are generic and there are expeptions but usually they are just about right. Also, if you have a frined/someone you know and has a dog ask him for advices and if you like his/her dog why not get one of the same breed for yourself? It will be much easier since someone experienced on that breed will be able to help you.

That’s all for now… 

In my next doggy post I will talk about how to train and take care of your puppy.

P.S. I am not a professional trainer, I am far from that, I just share what I’ve learnt throughout the years…

Bambi outfit inspiration

Bambi was one of the movies that made me as a child cry as hard as I could… I mean bambi lost its mother! So, since it is one of the most memorable cartoons I watched as a little one, it deserves an outfit inspiration, no?

Bambi, the hero of the movie, such a sweet little fellow.  ❤ Love.

Another everyday outfit perfect for the university and the for every time you need something casual yet unique to wear.

Two outfits inspired by Bambi, it has its brown color palette and of course details with deer like the necklace, the earrings and the bracelets. 

Another outfit inspired by Bambi and Faline. So cuteee both of them! Again here we have the same color palette (brown) and this look is much more formal than the previous ones.

Another outfit inspired by Faline. Here there are more pastel, girlie tones and of course the deer details in the earrings and the ring.

Bambi’s friend, Flower. Adorable! Here it is a very unique dress in black and white, perfect for a more formal event.

Thumber, the bunny, the dress is grey just like its fur and the shoes an off-white color to match its paws. I think I would wear something like that on a date or something. 🙂

Lastly, my favorite quote from Bambi. 

Love is a song that never ends. ❤ ❤

 

Y u no work?

Hello guys! (and sorry for the big delay.)

My laptop decided to break down while I was writing a new post (thank you a lot laptop from hell!) Anyway, yesterday I got it fixed temporarely and here I am! I will upload today not only a post about outfit inspiration (I know you missed that!) but also, I will tell you what I was doing this whole time I spent away from you…

So, first things first, HAVE A NICE MONTH! ’cause March is here people! 

Friday night, I went out to see the first and last appearance of Panos Kiamos ( a Greek singer) whom I didn’t know because Greek songs is not my cup of taste. I only knew 2 or 3 of his songs and that was thanks to my friend Antonela who always listen to this kind of crap (sorry girl, just my opinion). Anyway, if you want to listen to a song of his the link is here. So, I’ve been in this night club with Antonela, Stelios (one of our classmates and friend) and 3 of his friends. But the night wasn’t going to be anything near fun. Stelios got drunk by drinking alone a whole whiskey bottle. And man, I’ve seen many people getting drunk but this? This could be a picture to scare all the children around the world! He cries when drunk and he is fuc***ing ugly. Not moderately ugly, awfully ugly, I haven’t seen anyone crying so ungly in my life. After I got home and fell asleep I saw nightmares because of this. Imagine, just imagine!! Generally, the night was a disaster. But, I have to admit, Panos Kiamos did the best that he could. Nice program, and he sang relatively well. 

On Saturday it was Dora’s name day and she celebrated at Antonela’s place since Dora lives with her parents. It was a quiet, fun night with us dancing songs we used to listen during our childhood. I stayed at Antonella’s and her (soon to be boyfriend) came by at to greet us. Nice guy and he triens to find me a boyfriend since he believes “I am getting eaten by my solitude” (greek expression, don’t ask). I always find it funny how hard he tries and the guys that he finds… oh my God! He suggested 3 of them and just by watching their pictures was enough for me and Antonela to have nightmares for weeks. Haven’t seen more ugly guys (not to mention that ine of them is confirmed to be a drug addict…)

Lastly, on Sunday I went to my grandma where my aunt and my cousin Dora celebarated theis name day and birthday. Looooved it! 

That’s about all. How about you?

Dear self,

Hello!

Today I won’t upload a post about outfit inspiration (but wait for it, it will be out soon as well as the update, with pictures of my new hair 😉 ). Today this post is all about letting go and finding happiness…

Well, as I wrote before, 2011 was the toughest year of my life so far. My best friend died suddenly, I had a relationship with a guy I adores and he broke up with me after his birthday party while I was giving him his present (and no, I didn’t ak to give me back his present, why would I?), my mother was sick and almost died during a sergery so yeah… you see it wasn’t the happiest days of my life.

But (here comes the important lesson) no matter how many hardships we faced, we must learn to let them go. I know it is hard to embrace all the bad things happening to you. I know it is almost impossible to move on and live on while thinking of the friend you lost, or of the love you lost, but still… life is moving ahead and so should you. I am talking to myself too, don’t think I am a master of  strenght and power ’cause I am not. 

But we have to move ahead. Fear is not a good companion for your future, so let him be. Fear is often greater than the danger itself therefore you don’t need someone to make you see things more difficult and scary than they really are. Don’t be reserved even though you were hurt in the past. The past exists so that you’ll learn from it and you won’t repeat the same mistakes. It works as future’s guidelines not as a weight that slows you down and makes you go further away from your goals. Don’t be afraid to face it and deal with it. It is a painful experience, of course, but you will earn much more than you will lose. 

Don’t punish yourself by taking away from him what makes you happy. Try to stay true to him by doing what you know it is right. Deep inside us we know when we are doing something bad…. Imagine that yourself is a small, fragile baby. Will you let someone do to the baby what you do to yourself? If the answer is “no” then stop it. Not tomorrow, now. Your body, your heart and your soul are the only possessions you will have your whole life. Treasure them and they will compensate you. 

Lastly, remember that life may not give you what you want, but gives you what you need. What you need to become better, more clever, stronger. Life teaches you lessons. If you don’t learn them, they will repeat. So, have your eyes open, learn from what you do, what others do and what happen around you, so that you will upgrade. 

Make sure you will find happiness….
