Weekly Update #5

Happy Monday lovelies! I hope this post finds you still on vacation. I think it’s safe to say that mine slowly begin now! Due to the fact that the tourist season is coming to an end soon, things at work are quiet and I have much more time for myself, for blogging and for doing all things I love. I even went to the beach and will go again this week. So here is another weekly update.

Weekly Update 5 | Stella Asteria - Fashion & Lifestyle Blog


I am still catching up with my favorite books from F. Neitzsche and also read “Mother Is Wrong” by Michel Bussi, the author of “After The Crush”. Loved both books and highly recommend them. Although to be honest lately I am all into a whole new book genre and I can’t wait to tell you about it.


On another note on this weekly update, I am surprised to find myself listening to “Wild Thoughts” (Rihanna & Bryson Tyler) at least twice a day. It’s totally not my type of music in general, but I love it.


A lot of people have been raving about OINTB (Orange Is The New Black) lately. I succumbed to the recommendations, and started watching it and I am totally obsessed with it from episode one. However, as I have a highly addictive behavior when it comes to Netflix and series, I try to keep it in moderation and watch only 1-2 episodes before sleep. My no-screen-time-before-sleep resolution for this year has already gone down the toilet!


The best primer in the history of primers, the Benefit Porefessional and I absolutely love it. You should definitely try it. Tip: In case you try this or any other primer and it gets flakey, it has to do with the moisturizer you use before applying the primer. Make sure to moisturize at least 20 minutes before you prime, or try a different combo of moisturizer and primer.


I seriously can’t wait for Paris & Fashion week next month. In between I will make a quick stop in my hometown Thessaloniki to see some friends and family.

Things I’m grateful for

My sister and mother-in-law came last night to visit and I am thrilled to see them again after three months! They will stay for the week so we’ll get to celebrate Eleanna’s (my sister-in-law) birthday on Wednesday. We were seriously counting the days for the past month, and hours yesterday, until we finally meet again. On their arrival, I surprised them with my special welcome treats, accompanied by fine champagne and some of the most amazing news they have ever got! J I really wish for everyone in-laws like mine. No mother-in-law jokes and clichés here.

        I’m fine and well and happy. Busy though. I’m writing letters to friends. Old fashioned letters with pen, black ink and nice paper. You have probably guessed that I love words and writing. xo

    I can’t wait to hear your exciting news and the new book genre. I have a feeling I know what it is. I also can’t wait to see your reports from Paris Fashion Week! It is right when my son goes back to school, so I’ll have to live vicariously through you! Lots of love to you, gorgeous Stella. xx

      My dear Lisa. I have a feeling you have the right feeling haha! One thing I tell you, when I saw Alexander eating carrots on anchovy sauce with sliced grapefruit the other day, along with your comment, made me have big regrets for having a ton of Pringles the previous night haha!! <3 I promise to share as much as possible from PFW. Sending love your way and a big hug! <3
