Hello ladies (or gentlemen, although I sorta doubt that), happy Valentine's day to those of you that celebrate it, happy chinese New Year's and καλό καρναβαλικό ξεφάντωμα για όσους θα ντυθείτε!
This is going to be a totally un-festive post: a tag I should have done ages ago (I 'm beyond late at these kind of posts, we all know that, I 'm getting there guys...)!
The beautiful and lovely Michelle @Mup North tagged me for the "8 Most Worn Things" tag and I must say it was really fun taking pictures of something other than makeup for a change! :)
Off we go:
1. Most Worn hair product(s):
Frederic Fekkai Straight Away straightening balm. I never consider straightening my hair after I 've washed it without this product. I have naturally curly/messy/frizzy hair and I think this is the main product that I use, which actually keeps the ends fairly straight even after a few hours of going out in the extremely humid outdoor air (I honestly live inside a cloud some days). Definitely going to repurchase.
2. Most Worn lipstick/lipgloss:
MAC Myth. No surprise here. Great nude for my naturally pigmented lips, and I can use it with a light hand even during winter, when I 'm at my palest and can still get away with it. I love it's finish (satin), and I don't find it really drying (although I use lip balms religiously).
3. Most Worn earrings:
These super simple crystal studs from Accessorize. They 're quite large (about 1cm in diameter) and go with everything, so no styling effort needed!
4. Most Worn shirt/top:
It would have to be this black & white light knit sweater top. I 'm shamefully going to admit that I started looking for one after watching the first GG episode for the millionth time - Serena is to blame! But it's been a lifesaver since, perfect for spring or fall and super easy to wear (with leather jackets, denim waistcoat, scarves, trench coats, etc)!
5. Most Worn nail polish:
Impossible to pick just one. So, for the fingers it's Chanel Lotus Rouge and the infamous Metro Chic and for the toes a mini Shu Uemura, labeled "Beige Gold", and Essie Great Expectations, which surprisingly enough is hideous on my fingers, but amazing on my toes! Go figure!
6. Most Worn shoes:
Ok, so, since I wasn't sure if my silver Chuck Taylor ones would fit in this category, I 'm going to show you my second most worn pairs. The brown flat ankle boots I got this fall and I immediately loved the stud detailing (from Bershka), not to mention they 're super sturdy and can survive a bit (or a lot) of rain. The black suede ones are from Replay, a couple of years back, and I like to refer to them as my "slouchy pirate boots". I love them with skinny jeans (which is what I wear most of the time anyways).
7. Most Worn pefume:
Britney Spears Believe. It's category is floral/oriental, but if you expect me to accurately describe you what it smells like, you 've come to the wrong place. What I can say about it though, is that it's a warm, moderately spicy perfume, that's not very heavy or headache -inducing. I easily wear it from day (with a light spritz) to night, and I think it's ideal in this colder weather!
8. Most Worn handbag/purse:
Huge and expandable (I simply can't do small or medium sized handbags except for night-time), black patent leather that's durable in the rain or for travel, I wear this handbag almost every day. It's really simple in it's design - probably not the bag that you 'd eye on another woman, but it's perfect for me!
And there you have it, those were my 8 most worn things!
I understand that this is quite an old tag, so I 'm not really sure who has done this already.
But, if you haven't and would like to do it, consider yourself tagged! After all, it's really fun learning about non-makeup most-worn items! ;)
Make sure to let me know if you do this in the comment section below, I will definitely check it out (I 'm nosey like that)! :)
