Luxuria on Mykonos

 

Mykonos is an island on Greece that in the spring, winter and autumn months turns into this beautiful haven. I have always been an island girl and I still believe deep down that I belong on one. This is one of my favorite places ever. We visited in the springtime and the weather was just amazing. The white stone houses scattered through this little island with its windmills, white sand beaches and beautiful warm people. I would definitely recommend this trip! Here are the compilation of some of my outfits, looks and island adventures. Check out the blog for some weekly posts: http://www.LuxuriaBeauty.wordpress.com

Tell me your stories of Grecian islands, I’d love to hear them x

Mediterranean Sunshine…

The Mediterranean is as beautiful as it’s made out to be. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to visit Greece a couple of weeks ago and now I would love to show you some pictures of the beaches and my beach look, of course.

IMG_2411

These pictures really did not need editing for it to look like an actual dream or that I jumped right into a postcard. Be sure to put Greece on your top places you want to visit. You won’t regret it! It was not quite the warmest time of year but it was a nice warm 20 degrees and under the sun, it felt much warmer than that.

IMG_5777

The pink of my dress really pops when I’m against the beautiful blue seas. I did not know how much I just loved this dress until this trip. I’m wearing a maxi dress from Boohoo.com, my necklace from Mint Berry and it is super dainty and perfect for this weather and sunnies from H&M. As you can probably tell already, I really only wear gold.

My lipstick is Red Alert by Luxuria Cosmetics which you can see goes perfectly with the pink outfit too! Versatility is our speciality.

Can’t wait to share the rest with you guys! If you want a travel post on Greece, make sure to let me know!

Love,

Love is a Verb

Love is a Verb,

Happy Valentine’s! Everyday should be Valentine’s not just ONE day. We should always appreciate our loved ones, if it is our boyfriends/ girlfriends, hubbys/ wifeys, friends, family or even strangers. Of course, it sounds weird to say strangers in this context but we urge you to get out of the notions and stereotypes of this holiday and actually appreciate the ones we are with. Whether at work or at a coffeeshop, be kind, be open and let people into your lives. You might just be surprised with what you encounter. This is why it does not matter whether you have a ‘Valentine’ because your Valentine can be anyone in your life or someone you just met. Think about it. It’s actually pretty simple. Why make ourselves unhappy and miserable? If we step out of our comfort zones, we will be amazed of what it may lead us to. Love is all around and we need to start spreading love. The world needs love more than ever now, we have so many things going on 24/7- we need to start owning love and showing people that love is all we need. We need to take action and make things happen for ourselves, we cannot just expect things to fall into place. Without action and dedication, long lasting love and happiness is a far fetched dream. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there, to let down your guard and experience new emotions.

We cannot forget that it is also Chinese New Year- Happy Chinese New Year to everyone! Whether or not you are celebrating, we should rejoice in the celebrations. The year of the Sheep, a festival for families to come together and celebrate a new year. If you do not know much about the Lunar New Year festivities, I strongly recommend looking within your city or township and joining in the festivities or visiting friends who are celebrating. It is an amazing experience to be part of the dragon dances, the drums, the lights and the colours of this festival.

Some Relationship Rules that we try to live by:

#1 Love honestly and openly

#2 Never go to bed mad

#3 Give everything you got- 100%

#4 Drop the barrier and let your loved ones in

#5 Be understanding- Forgive!
