Customized wooden shades by Angelos

The next best thing… in the eyewear world

anjo eyewear

 

For sure the “wooden effect” is a trend that has conquered the world of accessories. We all loved the wooden sunglasses the minute we saw them in the optical store or when our favorite fashion icon wore them. Even though the wooden eyewear is a unique piece that we all dream to own, fasionistas couldn’t find the right pair that matched perfectly with their colours and their face shape.

The answer to those, comes from the gifted Angelos, who is a new talented designer, borned in Cyprus and studied in Greece. A creative designer that got inspired with the “Anjo wooden sunglasses”, during the last year of his studies. Angelo always had a love for wood, since he was born in an environment that everything was “soaked” from the scent of wood and that is because his father is a carpenter. The moment the idea hit him, he started to inquire and set his path to make his dreams come true. The “Anjo eyewear” effect is this years most promising choice in the eyewear world. The different and interesting part of these shades is that you can customize your own frame and lence (12 italian lences). The final touch that makes you rock, is that you can co-design them (in a way), since you can add your name, a special phrase or date, on the side of the frame. In this way you can have a unique and personalized classic piece that has your personal signature.

Angelo wanted to create personalized eyewear, with impressive details, strong personality, high quality and warmness…and he did it! You will be amused as soon as you wear them, since every piece seems to be made just for you. The layering of the colours of the wood and the final touches are so properly combined that you just gotta have a pair of the Anjo wooden sunglasses. 

Where can you find them? 

As everything that is unique and special you can find them in specific optical stores in Limassol (Cyprus) and in Karditsa (Greece). The easiest way is to like them in their facebook page, make your choice and send them your message.

maltesers cake

 

I know it is Summer time and we can’t even drean to taste it, but why not? For those who know how to leave and appreciate a good chocolate cake, check this recipe.

You will need:
– 3 eggs, lightly whisked;
– 1 tbs milk, extra/;
– 50g (1/2 cup) cocoa powder;
– 75g (1/2 cup) plain flour;
– 95g (3/4 cup) malted milk powder;
– 115g (3/4 cup) self-raising flour;
– 125g butter, chopped;
– 185ml (3/4 cup) milk;
– 185g butter, extra, at room temperature;
– 200g (1 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar;
– 345g (2 1/4 cups) icing sugar mixture;
– 465g Maltesers.
For the Ganache:
– 300g dark cooking chocolate, finely chopped;
– 125ml (1/2 cup) thickened cream;
– 30g butter.

Directions: Take a round cake pan and grease it with butter, then take the baking paper and line it’s base and side. Preheat the oven at 160 C. Place together in a bowl the brown sugar, butter and milk, and melt all stirring continuously until the mixture is smooth. Put in the cocoa powder and the flower and whisk everything in, add the egg and whisk again. Pour mixture into the round pan and bake for about 55 minutes. To check if it is done, insert a skewer into the middle of it, if it comes out clean then it is done. Take the pan outside the oven and leet it to cool completely. Moving to the ganache, take the cream, butter and chocolate and melt them stirring continuously until the mixture becomes smooth. Take the extra butter and beat it with an electric beater until creamy and pale, put in the malted milk powder, the icing sugar and extra milk and continue beating until fluffy. Finally, add 1 ½ tbs ganache and beat. Set aside the rest of the ganache until it gets thick, spreadable and glossy. Cut the cake in four layers horizontally using a serrated knife, set the base of the cake on a platter and spread over it ⅓ of the icing. Continue with the next layer of cake and the icing two more times and stop with the last layer of cake. Now put the cake in the fridge for cooling for about 1 and a half hours. Take the cake out and spread the ganache over it and decorate with Maltesers, or any other chocolate candies you like.

Culottes are here to stay

The ultimate chic but stressful trend 

I must admit that i love this fashion piece, but to say the truth outloud, this piece doesn’t favor all the time the women who don’t have a certain hight, or the self esteeem to pull the style right.The best way to wear the culotte? Go glam! The trend is a great alternative to a flowing summer frock or jumpsuit, but can still look just as appropriate and chic. I suggest rocking a tailored, high-waisted pair and sporting it with a heel — nothing too clunky, though!

Tip: For me the best way to style them is a crop top, that is not over-revealing. You have to give edge to your look, and that is why you have to wear them with your sandals if you go for the sexy look, with your wedges if you go for the day to night lool and with your superstar adidas white shoes, when you want to keep it casual. Feel free to mix and match and create a blast. Say yes to a total white look and to your favorite chunk heels that are so hot at the moment.

The Four Seasons of Siradekian

The lovely tassel- tail shoes 

When Alexander Siradekian designs his shoes, he strives to emphasize the beauty of the female foot and adorn it with graceful lines, but at the same time not forgetting about comfort and convenience. For his S/S 2015 collection Siradekian took inspiration fromVivaldi’s four violin concertos Four Seasons. The colors of the shoes remind us  fresh green leaves, lilacs, rhododendron and other flowers, and they are all adorned with Siradekian’s signature tassel-tail, which gives for sure a greek touch in the unique designs.

“Mesh” it up

The black mesh effect 

Either it is white or black the “eye let” trend, seems to gain even more followers as the summer comes closer. Worn all-over or a as a single piece, mesh is this season’s answer to graphic sportswear. Banded across the chest on a top or a dress, the sheer fabric gives a suggestive allure, partly revealing and partly concealing what lies beneath. From swimwear to haute couture.
