Sun of a Beach…

Summer is finally here and, as expected, I have started obsessing over getting ‘beach ready’. From the perfect suntan lotion, to a brand new beach bag, to a flattering swimsuit & a soft, luxurious beach towel – I want it all! It was in this exact spirit that I was browsing the internet last night, when I bumped into ‘Sun of a Beach’. Our very own Melina Pispa and Ellie Rountou have joined forces to create the plushest, most design oriented beach towels. Using the very best materials (exceptional quality 100% egyptian cotton towel and cotton fabric) and paying special attention to detail, these ladies have managed to amass a range of designs you’ll most certainly lust after. All towels are double sided, come in two lengths (100×140 and – the extra spacious – 100×180) & are presented in a cool burlap bag – which can be used as a stylish beach bag. Prices are rather steep, but I have the sneaking suspicion that will not stop me from purchasing one of my favorites (pictured …

Fashion Obsession of the Day

This is one of those posts that don’t really need too many words to put their point across… It’s quite simple really: I am in love with this gorgeous, jersey biker jacket from Next (doesn’t it have a very Chanel- esque vibe to it?) and absolutely need to make it mine. Only problem is, I can’t really decide between the Grey/Ecru and the Ochre version…   I’m thinking, with Spring already in the air & this being a seasonal piece an’all, I should go for the latter. At the same time, I’m wondering whether I’d be better off opting for the timeless elegance that black and white exudes. After all, I am (and probably forever will be) a monochromatic lover, at heart… What do you think? [All Images: © 2014 Next Retail Ltd.]

Fashion Obsession of the Day

If you follow this blog regularly, you may have noticed my slight obsession with statement necklaces. This last year has made me quite the happy camper, with a vast array of amazing designs available for all budgets – and my latest find is the Topshop Hexagon Collar pictured above. I find it extremely chic, yet somehow edgy (a.k.a. exactly up my alley) and will be putting in an order for it as soon as I finish typing this ASAP. What do you think? Love it or hate it?

Fashion Obsession of the Day

I just discovered Cadenzza, an amazing online jewellery store. Along with it I also discovered, among many others, Mr. Anton Heunis & his timelessly elegant range of handmade jewellery. His stunning pieces include “drop earrings, pendants, cluster necklaces and rings – all plated in gold, silver, rhodium or gunmetal and set with Swarovski crystals or resin and glass stones“. Technical details aside all of his designs are simply jaw- dropping and, if I have to be honest, I think you owe it to yourself to visit Cadenzza & order something! Darn, that’s exactly what I would have done, if only online orders could be shipped to Greece (instead, I’m just dying a bit inside…). Off to look into whether I can get these elsewhere. If you happen to have any idea, do leave a comment below. [Image: © Cadenzza/ Anton Heunis]
