The beautiful budget of 20

So since I'm a college student and as any college student my budget is restricted I thought I would do a monthly "beautiful budget of 20" post in which I will suggest 10 products under 20 euros and I will feature products that I've used and liked.

  • For this week I've been loving my care hair mask for all hair types and it's actually about 3 euros ( unfortunately I haven't kept the receipt ) and it has been keeping my hair healthy and shiny for pretty long so it worked great for me. To it's disadvantage I think you can only get it in Greece.

  • Next comes a skin care product which I have been using for at least 5 months and it is my beloved fissan facial soap with 30% hydrating cream. Fissan products are actually for babes mostly but this soap is for adults and is great for any type of skin especially the sensitive one.

  •  My skincare has been actually consisting out of two main steps one is cleansing (for which I have been using the fissan facial soap and the other one is hydrating for which I have been using my shisara hydrating creme (shisara feuchtigkeitscreme hydro komplex ). I think the price for this creme is about 3 or 5 euros and it's only disadvantage is that you can get it only at Germany Netto Supermarkets. 

  • For lips I never really had any problem with chapped lips until last September when I started getting acne treatment in drugs which was pretty heavy and made my lips chip like crazy and at that time the only product that was able to save me was the cold creme stick from avene.

  • For body products I couldn't leave out my favourite cocoa buter cream body wash from the body shop and this body sh may be a little pricy (about 10 euros) for it's amazing for dry skin and before shaving your legs.
  • From the body shop I have been also loving the green apple body wash from the "originals" range which is 3,90euros and smells amazing.

  • My favourite black eye-liner (which is also from the body shop) costs about 10,50 euros and is super pigmented with the easiest application brush I've ever seen.

  • Another make'-up item that I really liked and axpected to be worse but worked great was the essence longlasting eye pencil in black fever. The thing that I never expected from this eye pencil is that it would be long lasting and smooth but it was both and I thing it costed about 3 euros.

  • The next make-up item comes from bourjois and is the ombre stretch eyeshadow and it is a perfect color with a great pigmantation in 03 or extensible for 3.99 euros in sephora. 

  • Last but not least comes the dove daily exfoliating shower scrub for 3 euros in super markets and it does a great job.
              I'll be posting soon :)

Disclaimer :The essence eye pencil was a gift, everything else was purchased by myself with my own money. All of my thoughts are my honest opinions.

The math dance study and a cup of coffee

I've been wanting to blog post for a while but, I've been on this study for my Math & Arts class, which had to do with mathematics on dance and although a very stressful and time consuming experience, I really enjoyed it.
Here's some of the pictures I've used : 

These particular pictures I've used on the part of the project that was named "Symmetry and Dance". It's been hard for me to get enough information on this study due to the lack of official reference material on Internet and the total lack of books available but I finally finished it last week so now I can devote myself to my exams.

Oh and today we enjoyed ourselves -me and Mike- watching the Yip Man movie and the 8th and 9th episode of House season 1since I really enjoy the series and I had missed the first episodes. But the Yip Man was pretty good. Oh, did I mention we had hot drinks and cookies from the coffeeway? I took the gingerbread-cinnamon cappuccino (favourite) and Mike had a simple hot chocolate. Here's some pictures :

I've been also reading the Silmarillion from J.R.R.Tolkien and I've loving it so far. But I'll let you know what I think as soon as I finish it.
Kisses :)

Saturday summary

Today it was a wonderful day in Corfu, so me and Mike went on a stroll for coffee from the Coffeeway and photographs.
He took the simple milk hot chocolate (right) and I took the delightful cream & cookies cappuccino (left), which was great but not as great as my favourite gingerbread & cinnammon cappuccino. We also got the Droste Holland pastilles chocolates in milk/white.

On my face : 
  • Seventeen powder
  • Glamour blush
  • Bourjois eyeshadow 
  • Glamour eyeshadow

  • Terranova jean
  • Eastapack bag
  • Small bracellets one in red and the other in brown (gift)
  • Cool way boots

We also took some pictures at the beautiful old fortress :

Last but not least we decided to make ragu (an Italian recipe for spaghetti) and I photographed the whole process

I'll be in touch :)

A glass of wine in the bookstore

We went to Plus today. Me and Mike. The wine was delightfull.

The Plus is a bookstore that is also a cafe and a bar. The atmoshere was great in there. All vintage and old looking. The wine was homebrew, delicious and really inexcensive. The service was amazing and all in all I really enjoyed the calm, relaxing atmosphere of that place, small and cozy. Perfect for winter.
I'll be in touch :)

Yeah it's me in Haagen Dazs. Again.I know,it's becoming classic.

So, me and my boyfriend went over to the Haagen Dazs once more longing for something nice and sweet, and as we were both kind of still reeling from the previous illness, we decided that nothing would be better than some hot chocolate. Mike (my boyfriend, that is) had the Layered Hot Chocolate, which is actually one ball of ice cream ( Belgian Chocolate) and a crunchy cookie called Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cookie and a pot full of hot chocolate in which another ball of Belgian Chocolate ice cream so he could pour it slowly in the glass. I, on the other hand, got the Coconut Truffle Hot Chocolate with a ball of coconut truffle ice cream and another of Belgian Chocolate. They are as delicious as they sound and appear.

We also went out with the girls tonight and I had the best mojito ever but due to lack of photos I won't talk about that any further.( Just imagime... lime, mint, havana vodka and chunks of sugar in each sip) Heavenly!!!

Last but not least I've been  obsessed with rose gold this Juicy Couture watch. But it is an investment I'm not sure if I'm ready for.
Isn't it lovely? Be seeing you!!!
