Blog Lovin' - My Most Influential Bloggers

Hello fellow bloggers,

being a true gypsy means to be a bit unconventional at times. I knew it would be like this when I started my blog cause there is an unpredictable side to my life. Events evolve right in front of my eyes and I need to go with them as they come, that's just the road a gypsy's gotta go...
I deeply apologize for my relatively absence all this while. I know that I am still new to the blogging world and I should've been able to speak to you more frequently but my life turned out to be more than hectic and this won't change too soon. Many of you lovelies make up the reasons why I still try to write as often as possible, so I'd like to dedicate this post to you guys.

Tali was the first blogger that I got to know through the world wide web. Her ongoing love for make-up and all things beautiful made me get in touch with this community. When I first started out she recommended my blog to her followers which made my heart melt!

Supergirl is a true super girl! Her comments brighten up my days and on her blog she has very innovative ideas. She always takes the time to write her posts bilingual, that is so great!
Roshas is a very beautiful and cute person! I love her personality and her weight loss tips helped me out big time. I'm gonna write a post on my eating regime and how important optimism is in order to change bad habits. That is totally inspired by her suggestions!

is such a doll! She has an absolutely adorable style and works out every day by herself to keep fit and healthy. I think she's gonna be a total role model for a lot of young women. Keep on going, hon!

Miranda is a supermodel with a twist: she is very modest and believes that everybody is beautiful and precious. She knows no exception from this rule and speaks openly to anyone. Her health blog is an example of how many great people share their wisdoms with others.

Replica is a wonderful blogger! I love her preference for brands that are not commonly known but of very high-quality such as RBR or Snowberry. She always takes pictures of the ingredients list, I could hug her for doing that :) She is the first person I ever talked to on a blog and asked for advice (just before Tali)!
Tina is a very mature young woman from Greece. I adore her for always finding the right words and I can tell that she is a 100% honest in every word she says. She deserves all the attention that she is getting!

Mushine has a wonderful innovative blog. She crafts so many things that it is delightful to see what she comes up with. She is beautiful inside and out and this shows in everything she does!
Modesty Brown is a chemist and along with her scientific background she is very kind to everyone who comments or poses questions to her. You can really rely on her which is great!

Grace has a lovely blog and her flawless skin has been praised by famous people like Edward Bess! I like to read through her posts, old and new!
"Fantastic" :) I hardly ever seen a beautiful woman such as this one and her blog is a retreat! She is a model and knows to have little time on her hands but when she does post it's delightful!

.... the list goes on!

These wonderful girls are just a few!! I met many more since I started 6 months ago and I only made the most positive experiences! I thank you all for the warm words and attention that I have received!

I have new ideas for upcoming posts, mostly on health and exercise rather than make-up as my life is changing substantially at the moment. I am also gonna have a blog sale coming up, too.
So, please bear with me to make this a fun place to hang out! Without you, guys, this is just another page in the endless www. universe. Let's fill this place with light and laughter :-)

So long,
ur gypsy Sam xx

Benefit - Bathina Gettin' Steamy Shower Gel & Touch Me Then Try To Leave... Cream

Happy New Year 2011 to all of you!!

I wish you the best for the new year and I am looking forward to getting to know you further! I am so sorry for not writing posts as often as I would like but I am in an extremely busy and challenging phase of my life. I have a couple of exams to go before I'm fully finished with university. What AM I gonna be once I'm not a student anymore?! This thought makes me go nuts...

I was with my family on Christmas and I cooked and baked a lot in my family's kitchen and I was staying in my old rooms (I had 2). Gee, it's been so long since I have moved out - 7 years!! This year's gonna be a new turning point in my life!

When I opened some shelves of my old cupboards I found wonderful long forgotten Benefit items - the Bathina Gettin' Steamy shower gel and the Touch Me Then Try To Leave... body cream. Both smell divine, they're a very sensual experience, wow!! I must've placed them there at some point when I paid my family a visit. What a great gift to myself this turned out to be :)
My skin felt very soft and had an awesome scent both after the shower and after applying the lotion. Putting on either one of them is enough, actually. No other fragrance needed! I love the retro pin-up design, too! The shower gel is also ideal to wash your lingerie with :-) Your delicate clothes will soak in the soft scent... I highly recommed the entire Bathina collection! I have more, take a look at my previous post here.

I also show you the bread I was baking at home... yumm*

How do you like the Bathina collection by Benefit? What are your plans for the new year? Are you hitting a milestone, too?!

All my love,
ur Sam xx
