I CHANGED MY HABITS

Swimsuit  Geometry and Chroma  | Necklaces Your lovely Breeze and Created4youdesigns | Sunglasses Chain and Hat AliExpress

Hello people.... how is everything?
I am back here, because I want to share with you what is happening lately with me.

Since last year I have been changing lots of things in my life... One of the biggest one was to stop to eat meat and fish... it's been one year and I am so glad that I did it... I feel totally ok.

Everytime I see videos and articles talking about misstreating animals it makes me angry and sad... Unfornetly not all of us does something to change that.... still lot of people that loves to enjoy the rides on the horses, on the camels, or the shows that includes wild animals... many of them do everything just for the perfect shot.

Another thing that I change was the way that I shop and aswell the quantity that I shop....I prefer 100 times to by on local shops... from Cyprus or Portugal... instead of going to Zara, H&M, Bershka...
Support your local shops instead of the big fast fashion brands...I go a few times to local charity shops too... It's one of my favourite thing to do... you always find unique pieces that noone else will have it ... the clothes are super affordable and plus you help a chairity.

I have been changing my cosmetic products and make up, for natural products and animal cruelty free products... you can find already a big variety in Cyprus.. and in last case, online there is always lots of options.

Reducing the plastic has another huge thing that I change... I bought metal straws, I recycle all the plastic and paper that we used at home... In Limassol its quiet easy because once per week they collect the rubbish that you want to recycle and I dont take any plastic bags when I go to any kind of shop... yes in Cyprus is quiet a challenge... everybody wants to give you plastic bags...
Another day we had a barbeque and  brought my reusable cup... small things make the difference.

I believe that I can still do much more to help our planet...this is just the beggining.
I hope that I can inspire anothe people to do the same.


Now about this photos
This swimsuit is designed buy a shop in Nicosia callled Geometry and Chroma and I got for half of the price... yes I love bargains but I didnt go to SALES this year... because I only buy what I really need or something that I don't  have it yet on my wardrobe.

While I was oprganising my swimwear drawer, I realised that I had a lot of them from the previous year, so I said to myself that I would buy only one piece and yes this was the one..I hope that I did a good choice..


TIP: I used that hairband to secure the hat... because it is quiet big and it really worked.
All my necklaces are waterproof ... bought in Portugal.

TRAVELLING AROUND CYPRUS WITH MY FAMILY

27.4.19


Hello people, after another day I was looking at my old posts, I decided to post something again here, even if is just once per month. It's so good to look back at them, so I want to keep doing it.

My family came last weekend to pass the Easter in Cyprus.
My parents have been already twice here, but my brother was the first time.
The first day I took them to the village called Voumi, was the first time that I have been there as well and is such a nice place.
If you are looking for a traditional and quiet village, you definitely should go there. It takes around 40 minutes from Limassol.

 My initial idea was to go to Kakopetria and Kalopanayiotis, but the journey there was longer and it was already quiet late, both of them are really pretty villages.

This photo was taken near to Pano Platres.

The second day we went for brunch to Kikas garden, a place near to Paphos with homemade food.
They make their own bread and jam and everything was so delicious and the place is incredible nice, the owners are so friendly.
And then we stop in Argaka. I love the pier there.


After we end up to Pomos Village, was the first time that I drove up after Argaka. The coast line it's so nice and quiet, definitely I want to go there once to make beach and probably I will take lana too, because I don't believe that It would be crowded.


And later we went to Paphos, to show the harbour to my brother and eat the best ice cream in Paphos from E Cosi Gelateria.


The third day we went to the oldest village from Cyprus, Choirokitia, located near to Larnaka.
This village was occupied from the 7th to the 5th millennium before Christ. It's one of the most important prehistoric sites from Eastern Mediterranean.
The entrance cost 2.5euros.


After I drove to Protaras to go to Fig Tree bay. I love to walk in that area, they have a very long path were you can walk near to the beach, but that day the weather wasn't the best, super windy, cold and full of waves, never saw Protaras like that. 

Later I showed the Cave Greko and after the Sea Caves, was the first time that I visited the sea caves in Ayia Napa, and fnally found the hole where everybody is taking the picture.


Of course I couldn't leave Ayia Napa without stopping in Nissi beach. It's super beautiful beach and the water is so warm all the time, but I prefer to go to Protaras and Paralimni, because they are not so crowded.


The last stop was Larnaka, and after the Salt Lake.
I had very beautiful photos there long time ago, so I decided to go there again and show to my family this exotic spot.


 I love to go to new places all the time, so if you have any suggestions of new spots please let me know in the comments.
I hope that you enjoy this little tour around Cyprus.

LIPS N' MELON

27.1.19

 Skirt and Dress Lips N' Melon | Bag La Petite Sardine | Earrings Konstantia Kalli

 Hello everybody I hope that you are having a great weekend... I came back here to share two outfits from a shop in Limassol called Lips N' Melon.
I fell in love for both pieces, the white skirt and the dress... both of them are perfect to wear for a special occasion.
I decided to combine the skirt with a really simple jumper to make the outfit more casual, and to direct all the attention to the main piece ..the skirt.
The second outfit is a gorgeous dress that is on sale at the moment... I loved so much all the details and glitter, plus that is backless. I am obsessed for backless dresses, it's so feminine and sexy at the same time.
I decided to add some socks to the look, just to give a different vibe, and show to you that sometimes we can make something different and still looking good.

VINTAGE SHIRT

26.11.18


Shirt Lefties |  Necklaces C4Y designs and YourlovelyBreeze |
Skirt Stradivarius | Boots Public Desire | Net Bag Ebay 

Hello people... how are you doing?? I finally had time to shoot this weekend. Is not that I am busy, but now with the days getting dark at 17 is impossible to take photos during the week.
It's being very trendy the crazy patterns, so when I saw this shirt in Lefties in Portugal I fell in love for it, because it's different from everything that I saw already. Is not Leopard or snake print like everybody is wearing but stills a nice pattern.
All my necklaces are from Portugal, as they are more cheaper then here, and I knew that I was going to Portugal soon, I order them before and when I arrived home I had them already. 
They make all simple outfits look a bit more expensive

LUNA PARK

30.10.18

 Trousers Rosegal | Sweater Rosegal | Shoes Stradivarius | Earrings Ali Express

Hello babes... I received this trousers last week from Rosegal... they cost me almost nothing because I used the points that I have there and as well I took advantage of the free shipping that they had that day.
The fabric is really good and I am very into high waist pants now.
As I am quiet tall I love high waist things.
I combine with my old sweater from there but it was so hot that day... it's still impossible to wear autumns clothes here even if you want.

This place is in Paphos and is called Luna Park.
