Brows by nature

by Niki Kefala

There is one trend that is seen all over and that is the natural brow look. You see it thicker and sometimes thinner, not really brushed and without any brow lining happening to fill out the empty spots. The best part is that most have some form of grooming to the natural aspect of it, leaving them looking clean but not always full, and especially not thin. Thick and possibly well-groomed is pretty much how we are describing the natural brows these days, though Louis Vuitton has everything of the former trait and very little of the latter. Natural is better than fake but the choice is yours!

Pomegranates for a Colourful Winter

by Niki Kefala

Pomegranates are among the healthiest and beautifully strange fruits on earth. This red, round fruit, has many benefits for our body health and skin. Its jewel-like seeds (called arils) have been used for medicinal purposes for thousands years now, and there are many reasons for that.

Pomegranates vs Green Tea & Red Wine

Pomegranate is full of antioxidants, and has been found to have three times the antioxidant activity of red wine and green tea. It’s also an excellent source of the Vitamin C. Only one pomegranate, can provide you with folic acid and vitamins A, C, and E, and also with minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, iron, niacin, thiamin, folates and riboflavin. Not bad at all! So, by putting this incredible fruit in your diet, you can help prevent heart disease, cancer (like prostate and breast cancer), type 2 diabetes, and obesity.

Healthy bones

The antioxidants in pomegranates may also help to reduce inflammation that contributes to the destruction of cartilage in your joints, a key reason for the pain and stiffness felt by many osteoarthritis sufferers.

Clear memory

This red delicacy has also anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, which may be useful against common diseases of the gums. Moreover, there is some evidence that pomegranate can improve memory, and help you in a life without Alzheimer’s disease.

Pretty young thing

The best of all, is that eating pomegranates, keeps you young. Vitamin C, that already mentioned, plays a key role in the formation of collagen and the crushed seeds of pomegranate, act as an excellent way for exfoliating the dead cells in the skin.

To be honest, I like eating the seeds, but I would not recommend doing so for those who suffer from constipation. Overall, pomegranate is a superfood and no one can deny this!

Blair Witch (2016)

by Niki Kefala

Another disappointingly lazy horror film that lacks scares, imagination and cleverness. “Blair Witch” follows the original movie so precisely that at times it seems the film is more eager to elicit memories of its predecessor than to stand on its own at all. Depends too much on cheap jump-scares and perhaps for someone who never saw “The Blair Witch Project”, this might represent a good scary movie. But the truth is that this movie is not convincing at all, doesn’t bring anything new and can be dull at times. Such a bad sequel and unfortunately, this one loses its power as soon as you leave the theater, and it poses no threat of haunting your dreams.

Μια ακόμη απογοητευτική ταινία τρόμου που στερείται φαντασία και εξυπνάδα. Το “Blair Witch” ακολουθεί την αρχική ταινία με τόση ακρίβεια που δεν έχει λόγο ύπαρξης. Ίσως για κάποιον που ποτέ δεν είδε το “The Blair Witch Project”, θα μπορούσε να αποτελέσει μια καλή τρομακτική ταινία. Αλλά η αλήθεια είναι ότι αυτή η ταινία δεν πείθει καθόλου, δεν φέρνει κάτι νέο και μπορεί να είναι βαρετή μερικές φορές. Μια τόσο κακή συνέχεια που δεν υπάρχει καμία απειλή να στοιχειώσει τα όνειρά σας.

Shades of grey

by Niki Kefala

Ok, I know, grey is the new black. But grey is more than that. Is the color that you choose when you like to be chic, and at the same time, casual. When your mood is not black and white, not even… blue. And because grey, reminds you of Autumn that is already here!

Εντάξει, το ξέρω, το γκρι είναι το νέο μαύρο. Ωστόσο το γκρι, είναι κάτι παραπάνω από αυτό. Είναι το χρώμα που διαλέγεις όταν θέλεις να είσαι σικ, και την ίδια στιγμή, να νιώθεις άνετη. Όταν η διάθεσή σου δεν είναι είναι ούτε μαύρη, ούτε άσπρη. Και επειδή το γκρι, σου θυμίζει το φθινόπωρο που ήδη έχει έρθει!

Argan Oil: A Miracle from Morocco

by Niki Kefala

I discovered Argan oil few months ago and it is amazing! I use it for better looking hair but this treatment from Morocco is also very beneficial for our health.

A Moroccan Wonder

For generations, native women of the Argan Forest in Morocco have pressed the nut to extract this precious oil, to use as a dietary supplement, for wound healing, and to nourish skin and hair. One of the main reasons that Argan oil is so healing, is that it is rich with vitamins A and E. However, Argan oil is also packed with antioxidants, Omega-6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid.

Healthy Skin and Luscious Hair

The antioxidants in Argan oil are generally beneficial for healing skin which is irritated, cracked, damaged or even burned. After cleansing your skin apply the oil to your face and neck and you will see a miracle.

The vitamins A and E can help to reduce fine wrinkles and keep your skin moisturised and also say goodbye to acne. Moreover, Argan oil is an effective treatment to soothe and heal for men after shaving, as well as women for their legs and bikini line. And if you complexion is very dry, then this oil from heaven will save you. Believe me…

As I already mentioned, Argan oil it is also great for hair because helps to tame frizz and make strands look shiny. As for your lips and nails? Argan oil it makes for a wonderful lip treatment. This will not only heal any cracked lips or bad nails, but also keep them soft, smooth and conditioned.

Pregnant and Glowing

Stretch marks are an issue for many pregnant women, but don’t worry as the Argan oil is the ideal protection against stretch marks after birth, because increases the elasticity of skin due to its vitamin E content. I don’t think that you need more reasons to try this amazing oil.

Bridget Jones Baby (2016)

Renée Zellweger and a delightful cast, especially Emma Thompson, add some weight to the light simplistic plot of this movie. Dempsey and Firth contrast beautifully, and each has a different kind of chemistry with Zellweger. It’s funny and engaging and the lead character, it feels current because they’ve allowed it to grow. But there isn’t much that feels fresh in movie. The one exception is Emma Thompson. In spite of the mess, Zellweger remains winsome and charming as Bridget, enough so that one wishes the movie had done better by her. In short, Bridget Jones’s Baby is not a great Bridget Jones movie, but it is a Bridget Jones movie, and maybe that’s all people need.

Η Renée Zellweger και ένα απολαυστικό καστ, ειδικά η Emma Thompson, προσθέτουν λίγο βάρος στην απλοϊκή πλοκή αυτής της ταινίας. Οι Dempsey και Firth “συγκρούονται” όμορφα, και ο καθένας έχει ένα διαφορετικό είδος χημείας με την Zellweger. Ωστόσο η ταινία δεν έχει να προσφέρει κάτι καινούριο. Η μόνη εξαίρεση είναι η Emma Thompson. Παρά το χάος, η Zellweger παραμένει γοητευτική ως Bridget και εν ολίγοις, το μωρό της Μπρίτζετ Τζόουνς δεν είναι μια τέλεια ταινία Μπρίτζετ Τζόουνς, αλλά είναι μια ταινία Μπρίτζετ Τζόουνς, και ίσως αυτό είναι που το κοινό θέλει!

Clutch bags for nights out

by Niki Kefala

Every girl needs to hold a clutch bag in a night out. Even if they are tiny, and you can’t put even your lipstick in them, they are glamorous, mysterious and so feminine. Choose your favorite!

Κάθε κορίτσι χρειάζεται να κρατήσει ένα clutch bag, σε μια βραδινή έξοδο. Ακόμα και αν είναι τόσο μικρό, που δεν χωράει ούτε το κραγιόν σας μέσα, προσδίδει λάμψη, θηλυκότητα και πολύ… μυστήριο. Διαλέξτε το αγαπημένο σας!

Sully (2016)

by Niki Kefala

Tom Hanks stars in this portrait of heroic airline pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, re-enacting his incredible successful emergency landing of an Airbus A320 full of passengers on the Hudson River. I love Clint Eastwood’s direction and this movie is not an exception. He created a film that is vital, intense, thoughtful and emotional. Hanks does an admirable job of showing Sully’s humiliating stress while his reputation was being challenged, with the first-rate support of a cast that includes Laura Linney as his wife, and Aaron Eckhart, Jamey Sheridan and Anna Gunn. “Sully” it is an admiring recreation of the quietly powerful true story that happened in Hudson and an inspiring film that touches your heart.

Ο Τομ Χανκς πρωταγωνιστεί σε αυτό το πορτρέτο του ηρωικού πιλότου Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, στην πραγματοποίηση της απίστευτα επιτυχημένης προσγείωσης του Α320 Airbus γεμάτο επιβάτες στον ποταμό Hudson. Λατρεύω την σκηνοθεσία του Κλιντ Ίστγουντ και αυτή η ταινία δεν αποτελεί εξαίρεση. Δημιούργησε ένα φιλμ που είναι ζωτικής σημασίας, έντονο, στοχαστικό και συναισθηματικό. Ο Χανκς κάνει μια αξιοθαύμαστη δουλειά, δείχνοντας το στρες του Sully, ενώ η φήμη του ήταν υπό αμφισβήτηση, με την υποστήριξη πρώτης τάξεως καστ που περιλαμβάνει την Laura Linney ως σύζυγό του, και τους Aaron  Eckhart, Jamey Sheridan και  Άννα Gunn.  To “Sully” είναι μια θαυμάσια αναπαράσταση της  αληθινής ιστορίας που συνέβη στον Hudson και μια εμπνευσμένη ταινία που αγγίζει την καρδιά μας.

Raise your glass!

by Niki Kefala

The sunglasses is one of the few things in life that never goes out of fashion. It is the most trendy accessory and sets a new look every year. Actually, it is the same looks that comes and goes every year. The basic looks in glasses, that every woman and man, must have – at least one of them – are:

Aviator 

Classic aviators have a dark metal frame and reflective lenses. The large lenses were designed to block the sun from all angles, which is why they were worn by pilots back in the day. In the early 1930’s the Army Air Corps helped to create specialized sunglasses that would cut back on the glare that pilots experienced at high altitude, and aviator glasses were born.

Jackie O

Large black frames and lenses, is that style of glasses that Jackie O used to wear and nothing is more chic than this.

John Lennon

John Lennon comes always to mind with this iconic style. While the lenses are always round, the frames can be small or large, skinny or thick, and metal or plastic.

Bad sleeping? Hangover? Boring to do your make up? Mask style glasses, are here to save you.

Sport

For the adventure-seekers out there, sport sunglasses are characterized by thin, sleek lenses and are ideal even for climbing – in style – mount Everest. Ok, there is a chance to die up there if you are not fully prepared…

Σου βάζω τα γυαλιά

Με την πάροδο των χρόνων, φαίνεται πως τα γυαλιά είναι το πιο trendy αξεσουάρ και αυτό που καθορίζει ένα look κάθε χρόνο. Στην πραγματικότητα ωστόσο, είναι τα ίδια στυλ που απλά εναλλάσονται μεταξύ τους. Αν θέλετε να είστε πάντα στην μόδα, είναι κάποια βασικά στυλ που πηγαινοέρχονται στον χρόνο. Τα γυαλιά των πιλότων (aviator), τα μεγάλα μαύρα τύπου Τζάκι Ωνάση, οι μάσκες, τα κοκκάλινα γυαλιά σε διάφορα χρώματα, τα σπορ γυαλιά και τα μικρα στρόγγυλα τύπου Τζον Λένον.

Αν έχετε κάποιο πρόβλημα όρασης, βρείτε έναν σκελετό που να ταιριάζει στο πρόσωπο σας, ώστε να γίνει το σήμα-κατατεθέν σας.1
