Hey guys! What’s up? I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’m blogging from the boat as we speak. I’m going to Paros! For those of you who don’t know it, Paros is a beautiful Greek island in the Aegean. I’ve been visiting this island since I was 1. The emotional bond is stronger than I can describe, and truly I don’t know if I’m more attached to the actual natural beauty of the place or the endless memories that it has given me over the years. I’m going to see some family members who live there and hopefully catch up with some old friends. But, most importantly, relax, swim, sunbathe, and get filled with energy. My vacation is starting right now, literally, since I had intensive work to do up until today morning. It makes me kinda sad the fact that I didn’t have the time to focus more on my body.

I’ve been an athlete my entire life, but obligations kept me from exercising this year as much as I used to. All that stress and the hard work don’t leave you with much energy to do, practically anything. And thinking that next year will be even worse…No ugly thoughts for now! Only happy ones!

As I was saying, we all love to be fit and slim during summer. All year long, ideally, but especially during these months were revealing more than you are comfortable with is inevitable. Bikinis, shorts, cropped tops, minis yada yada yada. I’m satisfied with my body, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I wish, I’m sure we all do, that I looked like the VS models. I’m a couple of centimeters away, and hours of working out. 

It’s well known that Victoria’s Secret models have it all when it comes to looks. Perfect height, weight, hair…All the things we secretly (or not so much) envy and wish we had at least one of them. It’s really not good for you to look at conventional models and try to be like them. It can drive you crazy. By conventional, I mean the girls that look all alike, have -5% fat on their bodies etc.

But VS models could be a good motivation. Embracing the feminine figure, the healthy nutrition and the physical exercise, it’s exactly what a woman needs. Every body is beautiful and need its owner’s love. Don’t try to change who you are. Nature’s way is the one we should stick with, most of the times. Don’t push your body to the edge. Don’t starve yourself. Don’t try to look like the models. Eat healthy. Exercise regularly. Embrace your curves.

After all, if we all looked like models, all picture perfect and flawless, wouldn’t that be boring? A woman’s nature and beauty lies in what we call “feminine body”, right?

I just felt I had to make this post today for so many reasons. To motivate you and show you the beautiful girls, to try and convince you that you are gorgeous the way you are and you don’t need to look like anybody else. You should follow a healthy lifestyle, not just to look good, but primary, to be and feel good! Feeling good in your skin, this is the most important.

BAGS UNDER 100€ by ell0oukaa on
-use the arrows to change-
I've been using Polyvore for many years and I've gathered a great amount of stuff that I've liked. Some of them I've used, but no matter how many sets I make, and I make a lot, there will be items that you simply don't use. So, I decided to do some cleaning and make a list with bags under 100€ that are perfect for summer(not only!). You'll notice that some of them are designer, or resemble designer pieces. I know there are probably tons of other options if you go at Zara, H&M, Forever21 etc. but I didn't want to have a huge list that nobody would see till the end. I also know that there are a lot of pouches here. A product that you use most of the times to put stuff inside your actual bag. But pouches are a MUST this season and they are absolutely fun and easy to wear. It's summer, time to leave your huge tote in the closet and stop searching for hours to find your cell phone. Neons, pastels, florals, stripes, leather,'s all here. Crazy or classic, I believe there's a bag here for any taste, waiting for you to love it and make it your summer favorite! 
I know we see way too many stuff that don't seem to worth the money, I mean a Fendi bag/key charm is worth 800$, that's outrageous considering that it has absolutely no use! It's Fendi though, you may say. Well here in this list, I've got Michael Kors, Kenzo, Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, Diane Von Furstenberg, J.Crew, Lulu Guinness, BCBG and much more. As I've said before, you don't need to be rich to be stylish and you can see that there are also some affordable designer choices. I won't stop until I convince all of you that you CAN'T buy your style. I believe that most of these bags here don't look under 100€ and will look great with any summer look you put together.
After that it's up to you! Chose your next love and enjoy^*

I love love love mood boards! It's so fun to express yourself with pictures and colors instead of words. I don't mind writing, since it's one of my favorite things to do, but I know it can get boring for the others. Plus, since a picture is worth a 1.000 words, you would need hours to read this. So, instead, I found some of my favorite photos that remind me of summer. Colors, flowers, sea, sun, cold drinks and much more. Enjoy!

Skinny Bikini
Have a nice month everyone! I can't believe how fast may has gone. I can't believe it's June already. I envy those of you who are going on vacation this soon, since I need to stay here due to some obligations. But, as I've said before, there is no need to get depressed if you have to stay in the city and work. You can always find some time to do the things you want and, if you are lucky enough to have the beach close to you, then I'm sure you'll have the chance to get that tan before you hit the beach. Especially if you leave somewhere warm, or overwhelming hot during summer, you need this. If you have your own pool, then I officially don't like you-just kidding.

But no matter where and when you'll go swimming, there is one thing you will most certainly need. Your bikini! I am a fan of one-pieces but they are simply not for everyday if you want a proper tan. I hope you didn't misunderstand the title. I obviously don't mean that you have to be skinny to wear a bikini! Just that I like the "skinny bikinis", with the thin straps etc.
Skinny Bikini vol.3
What post would be more appropriate for the first day of June, than one about bikinis? I wanted to have variety, so I chose a bunch of different stuff. Triangle, bandeau, ruffle, monochrome, tribal, floral... I wanted to add the ones from Triangl, but since I've talked about these before I thought that there's no need to. I know I went a little crazy with the Mara Hoffman ones, but can you blame me? They are so adorable and so perfect for summer! I like all these options so much and I can't chose my favorite. I want them all and they are truly a great motivation to keep working on that body and keep eating healthy!
Do you guys like these bikinis? Which ones are your favorites? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!
