Backstage: “Makeupartistas feat. Chaperdonna” shoot

Backstage make up photo

{Make up stop}

I have always been a big fan of backstage photos and sneak peeks I feel that knowing what is happening behind the camera, is like discovering a new world; and since this is one of my favourite parts of a shoot I thought that I should give you all a small backstage taste of what took place back in August.

Location: Milies, Pelion, Greece.

Eίμαι λάτρης του παρασκηνίου, πάντα ήθελα να ξέρω τι γίνεται πίσω από τα φώτα! Νομίζω ότι γνωρίζοντας τι γίνεται πίσω από τις κάμερες ανακαλύπτω ένα νέο κόσμο. Και μιας και αυτό ειναι ένα από τα αγαπημένα μου κομμάτια μιας φωτογράφισης σας χαρίζω μια μικρή γεύση από την πολύ όμορφη μέρα που περάσαμε τον Aύγουστο.

Μέρος: Μηλιές Πηλίου, Ελλάδα.

Makeupartistas feat. Chaperdonna

IMG_train tracks_text

This beautiful journey of blogging is a road that you really don’t know where it will take you. So far It has brought me in touch with some very talented people and I feel so lucky when collaborations like this one happen. This time I had the privilege to work with Nikos Pal putting together a lovely photo shoot for the Star Shining Collection 2013 of Chaperdonna , a lovely new hand-made clothes brand designed with love and respect for fashion and the female silhouette.

So on a summer day my good friend and photographer Nikos Pal who I have previously collaborated with here, and here brought his creative head, Ilenia Douladiri aka Chaperdonna brought her amazing designs and I followed on with my make up case to create for you this dreamy shoot celebrating femininity in a unique way.

Aυτό το ταξίδι ομορφιάς που έχει ξεκινήσει είναι ένας δρόμος που ακόμα δε ξέρω που θα βγάλει. Για την ώρα είναι το όχημα που με έχει φέρει σε επαφή με ταλαντούχους ανθρώπους και νιώθω πολύ τυχερή για κάθε συνεργασία. Αυτή τη φορά είχα τη τύχη να συνεργαστώ με τον Nikos Pal για τη φωτογραφιση της Star Shining Collection 2013 της Chaperdonna, μια νέα μάρκα χειροποίητων ρούχων σχεδιασμένα με αγάπη και σεβασμό προς τη γυναικεία σιλουέτα.

‘Ετσι μια μέρα του καλοκαιριού ο καλός μου φίλος και φωτογράφος Nikos Pal όπου έχουμε ξανασυνεργαστεί στο παρελθόν εδώ και εδώ, έστησε τις μηχανες του, η Ιλένια Δουλαδίρη aka Chaperdonna έφερε τις δημιουργίες της κι εγώ συνέβαλα με το βαλιτσάκι του μακιγιάζ και όλοι μαζί δημιουργήσαμε αυτό το ονερικό αποτέλεσμα γιορτάζοντας τη θυληκότητα της κάθε γυναίκας με ένα μοναδικό τρόπο.

Autumn look

What an irony, I am supposed to be writing about Autumn looks and outside the weather has fast forwarded to winter! It is freezing cold, raining and so grey! ppff! Thank God I managed to take these photos last week so I can share at least an autumn look with you.

The way this weather is turning out to be, it will be winter looks that I will be only sharing! I am missing the sun so much!

The only great think in all this greyness is that our new camera is doing wonders and has really made my boyfriend to work his artistic ways! He is truly enjoying photography and I am benefiting along with all of you of the great results! I hope you enjoy this fresh look on my blog!

Restless summer feet

Gosh! First post in the last 3 weeks!

It feels great to be back on my cute laptop typing away but I have to say that it feels very strange for my little restless feet that have been used to wearing my nice black flip flops walking up and down the white painted small roads of the Cyclades and feeling the sand and sea tickling them away!

Oh! The holidays blues have really hit home! Too grey to be thinking of summer and too warm to be thinking of white Christmas (my other favourite time of year). Stuck in the middle and what’s left to do is to think back to my summer painted toes and plan ahead.

Autumn thoughts

The past few weeks the weather in Dublin has surely taken a turn making us all think that autumn is just around the corner. And although I am on a vey summer mood as my holiday time is only at its very start, I feel that at least a small preview of what we are going to be experiencing in the next few months is a must. So my busy blogger hat is on and even while on holidays and with a full moon waiting for me outsitde, I am working away on my e-moodboards to share with you; and when September kicks in you will be feeling the autmun love!
