Image source (pic edited by me)

Hey my beautiful people! Did you have a good month of October? My October was pretty good, I used up a few things, which is an accomplishment for me, especially when you have a lot of stuff, and I also discovered quite a lot of new products, which is awesome. Let me show you! :) If I've swatched/reviewed any of the products, I will link the relevant post to each product.


Priorities Buttermilk Cream Bath in Sweet Yogurt (the more I use it the more I love it!)
Sanoflore Nourishing Petal Body Cream (smells lovely!)
Bioten Cellufight Exfoliating Shower Cream (I use it before shaving)
Apivita Propoline Shampoo for Frequent Use with Chamomile & Honey (good stuff!)
Korres Organic Jojoba Oil (I use it some times at night instead of moisturizer)
Phyto Phyto 7 Daily Hydrating Botanical Cream (it hydrates the hair, without weighing it down)
La Roche Posay HydraphaseIntense Serum (great now that weather is a bit cold)
Schwarzkopf Gliss Total Repair Weightless Conditioner/Mask (it does what it says and it smells lovely)

Nail Stuff

Sephora Express Nail Polish Remover (I love it so much!!)
Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish in 126 Date in the moonlight (gorgeous dark blue with blue shimmer)
Seche Vite Base Coat (I bought it by accident lol, but I actually like it a lot)
Mavala Mavadry (it dries fast and it's really shiny!)
Lovie Nail Hardener (extremely cheap, yet it works great)

Fashion Stuff 

Dark brown handbag from Fullah Sugah by Skondras (old collection)
Silver Smiley Face Necklace from Silver Union

I'm obsessed with the new Essence nail polishes, I got 13-14 of them, because they came out with new colors in case you didn't know and I also love the Sephora Express Nail Polish Remover! Why can't they create something like that for toenails? lol It would be super handy! As for the silver smiley face necklace I won it in a facebook giveaway hosted by Silver Union a few months back and I wore it so much last month. It's so unique and it makes me smile! :) So, which products did you enjoy the most during the month of October? Do we have any in common? Let me know in the comments below! ;)

  5. Need to try out this Sephora nail polish remover. Heard many good things about it. First I need to use up my Inglot remover which is my greatest love so far.

  6. Ωραία τα αγαπημένα σου!!! Τις φωτο τις έχεις τραβήξει σε lightBox?? To αποτέλεσμα είναι πολύ καλό αλλά είναι δύσκολη η εστίαση??? ;o))XXX

  7. πολύ ωραία πραγματάκια! το αδυνατιστικό της bioten το έχω κι εγώ! αν θέλεις κάνε και μια βόλτα στο δικό μου blog. -BeautyStars

  8. Haven't try Priorities yet...does this one smell good?
    I may catch one


  9. @Eyh σ'ευχαριστώ πολύ! Ναι βοηθάει, οπότε χαίρομαι που το κράτησα τελικά :)

    @Lydia σ'ευχαριστώ!! Donna Valente έχει στα Hondos, εγώ το βρήκα στα Hondos στην Ερμού, δεν ξέρω αν έχει σε όλα!

    @fashion written with a lipstick thank you my dear! The Priorities line is amazing indeed, so luxurious!

    @Cel έχω δοκιμάσει και ένα σαμπουάν από Apivita που δε με τρέλανε, ένα για λιπαρές ρίζες και ξηρές άκρες, αλλά εντάξει δεν ήταν και χάλια! Αυτό για συχνό λούσιμο όμως, καθώς και αυτό για λιπαρά μαλλιά είναι πολύ καλά! Ναι το έχω βολευτεί αυτό απ'τα Sephora, βέβαια ναι αν ήταν λίγο πιο κοντό θα ήταν καλύτερο, αλλά δε με ενοχλεί και έτσι όπως είναι :)

    @Ladymoonlight you have to try it, it removes nail polish so quickly and so easily! The inglot remover is that good? Hm... how much does it cost?

    @elena♥elenas finds♥ σ'ευχαριστώ πολύ! Ναι οι φωτογραφίες τον τελευταίο καιρό είναι τραβηγμένες με lightbox και τις κάνω και λίγο πιο φωτεινές μετά με πρόγραμμα επεξεργασίας φωτογραφιών. Δε θα το έλεγα ότι είναι δύσκολη η εστίαση με το lightbox, βέβαια ίσως εξαρτάται και απ'την εκάστοτε κάμερα.

    @Όλγα Κόνιαρη δεν είναι πάρα πολύ καλό για απολέπιση; :)

  10. @Blushingloves Irene Greece you have to!! This one smells like a mix of vanilla and yogurt, it's kinda sweet, but not heavy and overwhelming! They also have one that smells like cookies! ;)

  11. Λατρεύω τη νέα μορφή του blog σου!!! Και επιτέλους αφήνω πιο εύκολα σχόλιο! :Ρ

  12. Καταρχάς, πολύ καλύτερη η εμφάνιση του blog σου και πλεόν είναι πιο εύκολο και πιο λειτουργικό και με τα σχόλια! Ωραία αγαπημένα! Κάποια απ' αυτά τα χρησιμοποιώ κι εγώ! Ξεχώρισα την τσάντα, ως τρελή με τις τσάντες! :D

  20. Inglot remover is sort of oily but it removes nail polish really well and also moisturises cuticles. It's not dirt cheap but definitely cheaper than Sephora products. These come in small, almost sample size bottles and the regular ones, getting a small one is a good way of chechikg whether you like it or not.

  21. To conditioner tis Schwarzkopf pos einai ???
    Exo polla k makria mallia, einai elafria 'h ta varainei?
    Leo na tin paro
