LOVE this Girl's Style!
Australian model Bambi blew me away the first time I saw her at a casting. There's no comparison to any other model, and at only 173cm tall she is taking over the fashion world!


This month's cover of Australian Harper's Bazaar!
Love seeing models get the cover!




Some earlier pics. which were styled by my friend Ivana Martyn-Zyznikow had me hooked right from the beginning:

And a magical post by ZANITA which included the latest Stylestalker lookbook has me awestruck!
Check out ZANITA's desert fox post to see more pics here. Gosh I love the stylestalker clothes too!
Off the topic of fashion-


'Bluefin tuna stocks in the eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean have dropped 60 per cent from 1997 to 2007, and the current Mediterranean fishing quota is 13,500 metric tons a year.
Some conservationists want quotas slashed at the international meeting, while others want fishing suspended entirely, saying that illegal fishing is rampant in the Mediterranean. The conservation group WWF says the species is on the brink of extinction.'


'In March, Japan and other Asian nations blocked efforts at the United Nations to declare the fish an endangered species. Japan consumes about 80 per cent of the world's Atlantic bluefin tuna.' (http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/8143699/fishing-nations-force-eu-retreat-on-tuna)


I have officially decided to boycott all tuna products, in hope that this wonderful fish will still be around in years to come -no doubt a lot of other marine life too, since I'm sure the food chain in our waterways will be severely effected with the disappearance of tuna.

Diana Sar -Update




Diana is currently encountering her first week in Tokyo! Generally the idea of a 15 year old modeling bothers me -believing it to be such a tender age to have to deal with the things that girls in our industry do -constantly being judged by our physical appearance, measured each time we join a new agency or even at some specific castings. It can be a lot to face sometimes. Even at 17 I don't think I would have been able to comprehend or have even wanted to know about the notion of having your hips measured each time you sign a contract! Although, being headstrong and having a love for fitness and healthy foods, this girl is definitely no average 15 year old.


With vivid colours being her favourite, in particular green, orange, red, blue and yellow; and also being adventurous with her will to try different and new things, I can't wait to see how the path for Diana gets paved in the modeling world. Am keeping an eye out for her next steps!

Manufactured Beauty is Getting the BOOT! (and good riddance!!!)

With the struggle of keeping up to date with mass-production and media's perception of feminine ideals; understanding and appreciating beauty as a whole, including unique features of elements of one's character has never been more difficult. 

I have had the wonderful pleasure of being introduced to and included in a project that I am sure will become a phenomenon in the fashion industry

i'm-perfection is a concept and project that is for the first time making women feel comfortable, and even proud of their self-acclaimed flaws. It's purpose is to show that imperfections are misinterpreted elements of unique beauty. Seeing yourself and various physical features is always very different to how someone else sees you (as a whole) -read my previous post 'A Word of Advice'. 

Thanks to Stratis Kastrisianakis and Vassilis Kykrilis this wonderful project is underway! It's time to realise that everyone is beautiful in their own unique way and that fabricated beauty is a thing of the past!

'In my family, we have what we call the “Christy Ears”...[w]hen I was younger, I HATED them....I was the new “elf” of the school....I have been told numerous times, [b]y numerous people, I should have surgery and have my “problem” fixed, including people who have had a major influence on my career. I never did it, and I will never regret it. In the past few years, I have decided my ears are what makes me unique. Though many may call them an imperfection or a flaw, I embrace them for what they are…me' (http://im-perfection.com/)

'I have had freckles for all of my life, I had never really given a second thought to them until I reached about the age of 10. To me they were always just me. As a young girl I lived in the Middle East, where my freckles were considered freakish, local Arab people would stop and point at me and ask why I had spots on my face. I became resentful towards the spots on me when I started modeling at 18....[b]ut the bad also came with the good, there were people who loved my freckles, I always considered them as brave and forward thinking....I have one incredibly clear memory....[m]y mum also has freckles....but she considers clear fresh skin beautiful. We were driving home one afternoon when she asked me tentatively if I would consider fading them....I was so hurt that day that I became determined to love my freckles, just because so many people did not, it was almost like a small rebellion. So the choice was clear to me that I had to tell people how powerful body image can be and how it can hurt a person. My freckles are an obvious feature of me and I’ve learned to love them because I refuse to change who I am for someone else. This project has strengthened my belief that you are who you are, and to try and fight that fact, is possibly one of the biggest wastes of time there is'

Can't wait to see what Feeling Human are getting up to next with their new campaign against eating disorders!



'Feeling Human is a charity team that was made in the summer of 2009 by two young girls with the experience in social work and in the fashion industry. Founders of the non-profit organization, Heather Nomi Tshuma and Yvonne Ivana Bosnjak decided to help raise awareness through creative events on critical issues of our time which are not foreign in this era, such as eating disorders, discriminations, depression and use of substances.'

Just for you WONDERFUL yet BAZAAR Grecos
(I'm half that so absolute no offence intended;))

I placed my recycling in the large blue recycling bin like always yesterday and was so shocked to see it packed full, with things like plastic bags with orange skins, an old metal stand, and many other odd bits and pieces -food included!

Pass the message on to older relatives that may not really understand what is recycable! Paper, plastic, aluminium (soft drink cans, tins etc.), glass NOT FOOD -get a compost bin for that, not only is it great for your garden but it's amazing how much smaller your weekly garbage amount becomes. (Also I am quite sure that plastic bags are not supposed to be placed in those specific bins as they get jammed in the machinery. Re-use your plastic bags or recycle them in specific plastic bag recycling bins. If anyone in Athens knows where one is situated please share!)
