Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.




Hello everyone. 


No girl can say no to a pair of comfortable spring/ summer shoes 
and i am not the exception. I also cannot say no to a lovely red lipstick 
and some lace in my body.


I was lucky the past October to win a give away from this lady and her gorgeous blog 
and here you can see what i won! In the current post i used the 
Calvin Klein Delicious Luxury Creme Lipsticks - Sinful 
and the hand made gorgeous burlesque tassel earrings!! 


And here, two books i bought during X-mas holidays! 


Both books about the Hellenic people in Minor Asia
during the wars and before the big catastrophe / genocide in 1922. 

The first one is a gorgeous, breathtaking, heartbreaking real story of the writer
[ Elias Venezis ] and the second, six stories from the lost homelands,
by simple people, delivered from mouth to mouth all in one book full with old photographs!


A family portrait with my grand-grandparents 
( from Smyrna ) and my awesome little grandma in the middle. 


When it comes to old things i can become a weirdo
I adore anything old, from a photograph to a book, from a chair to a candle holder. 
Everything i believe has it's own history. 
And i believe every object contains every person's touch.

  2. Oh the earrings look so beautiful on you! I only made two sets of them, so you have one and I have the other! :D You look totally gorgeous in these pictures, I just love your eyebrows, they are perfectly arched! ♥

    Those books look awesome, I love books full of antique photographs too! I totally agree with you about object holding some kind of record of previous lives, that's one reason why I love old things! Some people say hauntings are just memories of instances recorded inside the walls of buildings that play out over and over again throughout history. ♥

    1. Thank you deary, they are so elegant, i loved them and some jealous friends too :P My eyebrows are a big pain but i manage to make them what i want!!! They will not win :P
      I love those books too!! And i agree with you! I believe that energy still exists, within the walls of a building, in a photo, in a old piece of clothing. That record is our treasure!! Thank you for your comment :)

    1. Hello!! Aww and thank you for the compliment :$ Make up does miracles!:P I dont believe there is an english translation of those two books and it was very hard even for me to write a description! Maybe if you click Elias Venezis in google to find works of him. He was a great writer and most of his works are similar!! Hope to find something ^^

    1. Thank you for stopping by to read and comment <3 Her work was loved by some girls, asking me where did i get them!! Yes, they are so valuable, not by money, more sentimental! I do not have much, i always ask my grandparents if they remembered any "new-old" photo! :P
