L's Outfit: Back to Black

Hey all,

I'm here with a brand new outfit post.

 "Back to Black" is not about the song but about the feeling. 
Black is classic and strong, dark and intense, safe and scary, dangerous and remarkable. Black is feeling!

 Every outfit post has a story...here is the story about the Back to Black outfit, or a part of the story...
I bought this dress a few months ago. I was really happy with my purchase. When I first saw this black dress I imagined myself in it paired with a classic pair of pumps, in a fabulous party or for a nice date, wearing it exactly like I did for this post. 
As for my shoes, I was looking for a classic, black suède pair of pumps for almost three months. I finally found my (Cinderella) shoe in my two days trip to Patra and I was excited. 
I wore this outfit for the first time for this post...

 It's a classic outfit, you can wear it for a birthday party or any party, in a date, a wedding and for many other ceremonies and events.

  Είμαι και πάλι εδώ με ένα νέο outfit post.

 "Back to Black" δεν είναι μόνο τραγούδι αλλά και συναίσθημα.
Το μαύρο είναι κλασικό και δυνατό, σκοτεινό και έντονο, ασφαλές και τρομακτικό, επικίνδυνο και αξιοπρόσεκτο. Το μαύρο είναι συναίσθημα!

 Κάθε outfit έχει και μία ιστορία...αυτή είναι λοιπόν και η ιστορία για το "Back to Black", ή καλύτερα ένα μέρος της ιστορίας...
Αγόρασα αυτό το φόρεμα μερικούς μήνες πριν και ήμουν πολύ χαρούμενη με τη αγορά μου. Μόλις το πρώτο-αντίκρισα με φαντάστηκα μέσα σε αυτό, συνδυασμένο με κλασικές μαύρες γόβες σε ένα party ή σε ένα ραντεβού, φορώντας το ακριβώς όπως σε αυτήν την ανάρτηση.
Όσον αφορά τα παπούτσια, έψαχνα για ένα ζευγάρι κλασικές μαύρες σουέτ γόβες περίπου τρεις μήνες. Τελικά βρήκα το πολυπόθητο ζευγάρι σε μία διήμερη απόδραση στην Πάτρα και ήμουν ενθουσιασμένη.

 Είναι μία κλασική εμφάνιση, ιδανική για ένα πάρτι γενεθλίων ή οποιοδήποτε πάρτι, για ένα ραντεβού, για ένα γάμο, για όποια τελετή και εκδήλωση μπορεί να είστε προσκεκλημένες.

Thanks for reading,
love, L.

Once again I want to thank  Foteini Z. for her patience and time.You are the best!

Grammy Awards 2015 "Red Carpet Gossipology"

Hey people,

 I know I owe you this post, so here it is! I made this "better late than never" post because I don't want  it be missing from the Red Carpet Gossipology post list.

 The 57th Grammy Awards were held on February 8, 2015 (I know it's a long time ago). Like every year, famous music artists and other celebs  appeared on the Red Carpet. This year I found more interesting appearances than 2014 and the black colour was starring.

 Check out the 10 looks list including the 3 best dressed of the music night. At the end you will find and the 3 worst looks.

Top 3 best dressed...

1. Taylor Swift - Elie Saab gown. Lorraine Schwaratz earrings and Giuseppe Zanotti wedge sandals. I love the color combo of the teal dress and the (perfect) magenta sandals. Besides I don't like the stiff fabric of that dress, I have to admit that this appearance totally got me. (Fashion Gossipology: Last year Taylor Swift took the 2nd place in the Top 3 Grammy Awards 2014).

2. Jessie J - Ralph & Russo Fall/Winter 2014-15 Couture gown. Jessie J made an amazing appearance in this dramatic, sexy dress. It fits perfect on her.

3. Gwen Stefani - Atelier Versace Spring/Summer 2015 jumpsuit. Christian Louboutin pumps. I totally loved this look! A fashionable jumpsuit in classic black colour, paired with also classic black pumps!  Amazing hair styling, make up and the red nails touch!!

 ...and some more...

Iggy Azalea - Giorgio Armani gown. Lovely colour, the dress fits perfect on her and excellent makeup. Elegant!

Rihanna - Giambattista Valli Couture dress. A controversial appearance. You may love it or you may hate it but you would never ignore it. I think I like Riri in this cotton-candy dress, she tried for something different and she successfully made it! (Gossipology: Rihanna won the "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration" award).

Beyonce Knowles - Proenz Schouler dress. Nice and sexy of course. (Gossipology: Beyonce won the "Best R&B Performance" and "Best R&B Song" awards for the "Drunk in Love").
(Source: exploregram.com)

Anna Kendrick - Band of Outsiders suit. A black, classic, sexy suit. Less is more! I like the simplicity.

Ariana Grande - Versace Spring/Summer 2014 gown. Fresh!

Sia & Madie Ziegler - Armani Prive customs. Sia wore Christian Louboutin pumps. Love these "twins" and the classic black suits are the warranty from a good vote from me. Also, I found clever the wig choice for Sia who is agoraphobic.

Katy Perry - Zuhair Murad Spring/Summer 2015 dress. Sophia Webster tri-strap sandals. Sexy and dazzling look. (Fashion Gossipology: At Grammy Awards 2014 "Red Carpet Gossipology" Katy took the 3rd place in the Top 3).

 Το ξέρω πάει καιρός που σας χρωστάω αυτή την ανάρτηση, οπότε εδώ είναι. Έφτιαξα αυτήν την "Κάλλιο αργά παρά ποτέ" ανάρτηση γιατί δε θα ήθελα να λείπει από τη Red Carpet Gossipology συλλογή.
 Η 57η απονομή βραβείων Grammy έγινε στις 8 Φεβρουαρίου 2015. Όπως κάθε χρόνο διάσημοι καλλιτέχνες της μουσικής σκηνής και άλλοι αστέρες εμφανίστηκαν στο κόκκινο χαλί. Φέτος ευτυχώς βρήκα μερικές πιο ενδιαφέρουσες εμφανίσεις από ότι το 2014 και το μαύρο χρώμα πρωταγωνιστούσε.
 Παραπάνω θα βρεις μία λίστα με 10 εμφανίσεις, τις 3 καλύτερες αλλά και μια ματιά στις 3 χειρότερες.

One of my favourite songs was one of the best performances that night!!

Thanks for reading,
love L.

This post is dedicated to all of you, who repeatedly asking me to write a new post. Thank you for your love and the motivation.

#SmearForSmear Campaign

 The Smear for Smear campaign has been organised by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust to mark the Cervical Cancer prevention. Jo's Cervical Cancer center is ensuring women will be reminded to get their annual Pap smear (The test was invented by and named after the prominent Greek doctor Georgios Papanikolaou).

(Source: www.medicaldaily.com)

What can we do to reduce our risk of the cervical cancer?
 A well-proven way to prevent cervix cancer is to have testing (screening) to find pre-cancers before they can turn into invasive cancer. The Pap test (or Pap smear) and the human papillomavirus (HPV) test are used for this. If a pre-cancer is found it can be treated, stopping cervical cancer before it really starts. Most invasive cervical cancers are found in women who have not had regular Pap tests. (Source: www.cancer.org)

Don't neglect Pap smear, may save your life!

 Το #SmearForSmear είναι μία καμπάνια που δημιουργήθηκε με σκοπό να σηματοδοτήσει την πρόληψη του καρκίνου του τραχήλου της μήτρας και να διασφαλίσει την ύπαρξη μιας υπενθύμισης προς όλες τις γυναίκες για το ετήσιο τεστ Παπ (Η εξέταση ανακαλύφθηκε και πήρε το όνομα της από τον Έλληνα γιατρό Γεώργιο Παπανικολάου).

 Τι μπορούμε να κάνουμε για να μειώσουμε τον κίνδυνο εμφάνισης του καρκίνου του τραχήλου της μήτρας;
 Ένας πολύ καλά αποδεδειγμένος τρόπος πρόληψης του συγκεκριμένου καρκίνου είναι ο έλεγχος για προκαρκινικά κύτταρα πριν αυτά εξελιχθούν σε καρκίνο του τραχήλου. Αυτό επιτυγχάνεται με την εξέταση Παπανικολάου (τεστ Παπ). Αν εντοπιστούν προκαρκινικά κύτταρα εγκαίρως μπορούν να αφαιρεθούν και να σταματήσουν τον καρκίνο πριν καν εμφανιστεί πραγματικά. Ο κίνδυνος εμφάνισης του καρκίνου του τραχήλου της μήτρας (σύμφωνα με το: www.glaxosmithkline.gr) είναι 5 φορές μεγαλύτερος σε γυναίκες που δεν ελέγχονται τακτικά. 

Μην αμελείτε το Τεστ Παπ, μπορεί να σας σώσει τη ζωή!

Thanks for reading,
love, L.

 I admit that I'm not the usual follower of this type of social media campaigns, because I believe that in most cases they don't really contribute to the main cause. But in this case I think that this campaign can be a good reminder for prevention.

 I wanna thank my friend Vassia for the insta-nomination. 

 I nominate Foteini Z.  and Anastasia from The howse project

5. Felicity Jones - Christian Dior custom gown. Van Cleef and Arpel vintage jewelry was the perfect touch. This appearance is the definition of the "red carpet look". Felicity stood out in this classic, teal blue gown. Excellent hairstyle and smokey eye make up.
