Beauty 101 from women around the world

There's something we can learn from women around the world, and the older I get, the more I care about delaying the ageing process, or simply ageing well and elegantly.  Youth is wasted on the young! I am a big advocate for less is more, in every aspect of life, and that includes going under the knife. While I am not against it, and I believe it's every woman right to do whatever makes her feel food, we should also place greater emphasis, from a younger age about what we put into our bodies and onto our skin. You cannot keep a fruit's skin looking tight and beautiful for very long if it has started rotting from the pip. Here...

Change in policy

Hey lovers You know I keep an open dialogue between us, and try my best to keep you all informed of how I work and why I work that way. I am an independent designer, which means I do everything myself. My products are all handcrafted locally by Cypriot artisans, with leathers I source from Greece and Italy.  I do not keep any stock, as all my products are made-to-order. You make your selection, I order it from my workshop (which consists of 4 people, 2 of which are pensioners), I collect and send it by post to you. That is the full circle. Due to the nature of  my products, I've rightfully been advised that LFC should not have a...

How to change your lifestyle in just one month

Hey lovers I have recently came across an article by blogger Svetlana Pokrevskaya who makes a bold promise to all those who carry out her plan: in just one month's time, you can change your lifestyle. The advise seems basic enough, and nothing you haven't heard before. The challenge is to actually DO the list, and stick with a new routine. They say any habit can be broken or formed in 21 days. That's 21 consistent days lovers.... As she explains, "Recently I received a letter from one of my readers. 'Hi, Svetlana! I want to change my life based on your lifestyle!' Wow. I began to wonder — do I actually have a specific "lifestyle"? Well, it seems I have! And straight away I wanted to...

Lucky little red seeds

Customs and traditions around the New Year’s Eve and January the 1st symbolize the eternal longing of humankind for joy and good fortune, and Greece has its own unique traditions pledged around these two days, aiming to cast away evil spirits and bring lots of good fortune and blessings into the lives of the people. An ancient symbol of fertility, regeneration and prosperity, Greek housewives hang the pomegranate on or above their doors throughout the 12 days of Christmas. Right before midnight comes on New Year’s Eve, all family members get out of the house and the lights are shut down to let go of the old year. Once the clock strikes twelve, someone considered to be lucky and happy...

I am enough

Good morning lovers I saw an amazing talk on youtube by Marisa Peer (for Mind Valley) titled The Biggest Disease Affecting Humanity: 'I am not enough'. Low self esteem is not something we are born with. It is something we are taught, beit by our parents, our peers, the media etc. By this concept, it also means you can learn to be confident.  Peer suggests writing 'I am enough' on your mirror in lipstick or marker. Everytime you look at yourself read it out loud. Say it until every cell in your body believes it. I've being doing this for about a month and can honestly say it's a great way to start and end the day, with a positive...

1 Teaspoon of Turmeric every day

Hey lovers I'm sharing with you this great article by Amy Goodrich about the benefits of drinking tumeric daily. You all know I'm a big fan of the spice as I've shared some recipes in previous newsletters, but this will help you understand the real benefits of just one teaspoon a day. A teaspoon of turmeric a day keeps inflammation, toxins, pain, and cancers at bay. In India, turmeric has been used and crowned the “Queen of all Spices” for over 2500 years. Although it was first used as a dye, over the centuries its true healing powers slowly came to light. Long known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and detoxing properties, recent studies reveal how this natural wonder can treat diseases...

In the name of breasts: Check your melons

One in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and 90 percent of breast cancer can be fully cured if it's caught early enough. With this in mind, and for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, coffee brand Carte Noire joined forces with BETC and the Pink Ribbon Foundation to produce a super-cheeky ad encouraging women to get screened regularly. Under the banner #AuNomDesSeins ("In the name of breasts"), the ad features a slew of famous (and nearly topless) French personalities, including underwear designer Chantal Thomass, singer Micky Green, and musician Yelle (who appears in the first shot and also sings the background music). Each poses with objects that represent their "favorite" nicknames for their own boobs. The ad could...

When love is not enough...

Hey lovers... Today I'm going to write about something that is very personal, and also very common. As you all know, I was married in September of 2014, which I shared with all of you on my social media accounts. It was, at the time, a very happy day for me, albeit stressful leading up to the wedding day. I had just turned 30, and was marrying a man who I loved very much. We'd been together 4 years prior and it seemed the natural next step in our relationship. It was also something that was 'expected' from our families (mine mostly, being the only daughter of a traditional Greek family). I stood by my husband through many ups and...
