Hey everyone time for May favourites! In this post you will find all the things fashion, beauty and random I loved this month!! So let’s start.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Multi Purpose Palette
I ❤ this palette. It is gorgeous!! There is a highlighter, a blush, and a bronzer. My fave is the highlighter. It is worth the splurge girls. For a full review press here.
TooFaced Cocoa Contour
I have been non-touring for a while now (cause I didn’t know how to contour, not cause I am a trend setter :P), but I bought and have been using the Cocoa Contour palette and I think I am getting quite good at it. I like it. In Greece it retails for 36 euro.
Sephora Kabouki Brush
I got the Pro Contour Kabuki Brush 82 which is dummy proof (newbie) and it sits right where you want it to when contouring. Retails for 25 euros ( I know…..).
Clinique Chubby Stick for eyes
If you have difficulties seeing (like me), you should give eye shadow pencils/ sticks a shot cause you can ‘feel’ where you are applying the shadow. You have more control of your eyeshadow when it is a stick. I saw that Clinique had a shadow tint for the eyes (in the Chubby stick line) and bought the stick in the number 04 ample amber. I love it!! I am going to get a few more colours cause they are so easy to use and more on the buttery feel side. It is also inexpensive! In Greece it costs 16 euro ( we always have sales as I have said a zillion times).
Random beauty tip: If you wear glasses like me, and you want your eyes to ‘pop’ you should apply in the middle of your lid a champagne-y shadow.
My Kurt Geiger Bag
I have been wearing it quite a lot the past month. I really like it. For a full review press here.
I got this from Mark and Spencer’s. You can wear it day and night. Dress up and down. I love the sleeves with the ladder- like cut outs.
I have loads of earrings and this month I added a few to my collection. The ones on the left are from Claire’s and on the right from Anna Mazaraki.
I got this cardigan from Zara and I have been loving it. It is soft and warm enough for a chilly summer night.
It’s summer time in Greece and time for my fave coffee, frappe. Forget about what you knew, we are talking about the real thing. Greek Frappe! I will tell you how we make it . So, you need instant coffee (spray-dried). I use Nescafe. You need sugar and milk (if you take sugar and milk in your coffee. So, I use a spoonful of Nescafe, a spoonful of sugar, water and then use the coffee whisk mixer to mix them and create froth. You then add water and ice and…. enjoy your frappe!
My town in May
I live in Chania, Crete. If you are looking to book summer holidays, check out my town (I do not work for the ministry of tourism, I promise).
So, that’s all for now.

Beautiful pictures! Even though you do not work in tourism, you have motivated me to travel to this beautiful place. Thanks for sharing.

Your town definitely looks like a nice place to take a holiday! Love the new earrings!
Thank you!! You should visit now that schools are going to close 🙂
That contouring brush seems like it would work perfect! I also love the looks of that contouring palette. Beautiful shades!
Oh!! You need to check out the TooFaced palette. It’s really good. I haven’t regretted getting that or the brush!!!
That bag is beautiful! I love the clean simple look, yet classy and looks sturdy!
It is! It is!! I ❤ it!!!
I love the chubby sticks from Clinique and that bag is so pretty! I have a similar Kabuki Brush and it makes all the difference. Looking up your town right now, we are still pondering over where to go this summer and Greece sounds perfect.
Any suggestions on which colour I should get? You should visit Chania! It is beautiful and the island is so big that you can do loads here!!!
Everything about this post is beautiful; the pictures and all the products. I have a tan cardigan like that and love it! I’ve had it for years! I’ve also been swooning over the Clinique Chubby Stick eyeshadows. I’m not a fan of creamy shadows though because I feel like they don’t last. I may have to try one of them, still.
You have lovely favorites, I absolutely adore these! I don’t have any Kurt bags, but yours looks lovely! xx adaatude.com
Ooh both of those palettes look lovely! I absolutely can’t believe it’s already (almost) June.
Those ocean views are gorgeous! Looks like a great place to be come summertime!
I absolutely LOVE that Estee Lauder palette! It is beautiful!
You live in a beautiful town! I will definitely have to try out the Clinique chubby sticks for eyes as I wear glasses too!
I had not seen that Estee Lauder palette! It is to dye for! I had my eyes on the new Hourglass one but was put off by it being cream. I think I may need to get this one instead.
Oh!!! It is lovely!!! You should check it out!!!
Anything by Too Faced is amazing! Great roundups!
