Spring is coming, flowers are blooming and nature becomes more & more colorful!
What I really love in this season of the year is that there are colors everywhere, which lifts my mood and affects the color choices of my outfits too!
Did you know that our surroundings may be influencing our emotions & state of mind? Did you ever notice that certain places irritate you? Or that certain places are especially relaxing and calming? Colors in those spaces are playing an important role.
In art therapy, color is often associated with a person’s emotions. I personally believe that colors & scents are the primary source of energy and inspiration in our life. Even the colors that we choose for our everyday outfits reflect the mood we are in.
But, do we really know what our favorite color or colors we choose to wear in our everyday life (clothes, cosmetics etc.) really mean about us? Check the color list and find out the meanings & causes of basic color shades or just get inspired!
Live a colorful life!
You are my bestie!

Face masks are an easy and inexpensive way to treat your skin gently and pamper yourself! Choosing the right face mask for your skin to accomplish many different benefits is the one big part but applying it correctly on your skin is also important.
You may now be wondering....
What should we keep in mind when we offer ourselves a facial mask treatment? How can we have a healthy glowing skin with just a little effort and time?
TIMING: The best time to apply your mask is after a shower or bath. Alternatively, warm up the pores by doing a quick 5 minute steam facial. Pour boiling water into a bowl and lean over the bowl while keeping your head and bowl covered with a towel to trap the steam. Another way is to take a warm-hot face cloth and apply to face pressing in.
FACE MASK APPLY: Pop your mask into a bowl. You may apply the mask with either your fingers or a face mask brush. There are different brushes depending on whether you are applying a clay mask, cream mask or a gel mask.
TIP: If you have some cucumber slices chill with a couple of slices on your eyes. Cucumbers are soothing and cooling and will add hydration whilst reducing any puffiness around the eye.
FACE MASK REMOVAL: You can use a face cloth, face sponge or your fingers and remove by making circular sweeping movements over the face and neck. Finish with the splash of warm water and then cold.

I was really excited and frightened when I received a body oil. You know how difficult it is to handle body oils. I am telling you that ,because most of them stain the clothes or leave you with an oily sense for ages.
Thankfully I can assure you that this specific product only took 3-6 minutes in order to dry and then left my skin really soft! I was able to get dressed and leave the house. Plus it left my skin so moisturized.
TIP : You can also apply it as a make up remover! It is easily absorbed so you wont have a problem with that. (If you have an oily skintype I dont suggest you doing that)

Bloomey …. a journey into scents and colors!
How this journey started....
Colors, scents and essential oils are the primary source of energy and inspiration in our life. Even the colors that we choose for our everyday outfits reflect the mood we are in.
Approximately two years ago, while being trapped in my thoughts and a little bit unsatisfied with my professional career, I started attending training courses on Aromatherapy and how-to-make your own natural skin care products, as I strongly believe in the power of nature and I am a vegan products lover. I started experimenting on and making my first handmade hand creams and body butters with different scents for me and my friends.
Being excited with my new -until then- hobby, I started spending more and more of my free time on this and showing my products to people who were really impressed by the texture and smell of my handcrafted vegan products! Among them, there was also a fashion designer, I had recently met, getting prepared for an upcoming fashion show. She asked me if I also make soaps, as she was thinking about giving her guests a soap containing fabrics from her promoting collection as a gift. I said “I haven’t dealt much with it but I can look into it.”
As I love fashion & trends observing, that was my big chance and the BIG BEGINNING for me….
I started working on this project and experimenting on handmade soap production in general. After many trials-and also failures-during the production process I managed to make my first soap collection that consisted of 250 pieces of transparent cranberry scented soaps containing fabrics from the designer’s spring collection. The success and positive feedback of my first soap collection made me realize how much the whole creative process of natural soap-making with scents and essential oils had enchanted me, all of them having different beneficial properties for skin, body and mind. So, I continued learning more about it to get improved.
Now I have my own soap collections and nbeauty products with my own brand, Bloomey Handmade that was founded in 2016 and is based in Athens, Greece.
“Bloomey” means …a journey into scents and colors. Bloomey= bloom + journey!
Bloomey natural soaps and beauty products take you to places full of intense colors and scents. Bloomey is not just beauty products but a whole experience that lifts your mood up, makes you feel fresh and in fashion. An experience you want to live again and again.
All product ingredients are carefully selected so as to provide high-quality skin-loving natural products that moisturize and treat your skin gently, lift your mood up and make you feel fresh. Soaps and other bath and body products are designed by blending different colors and scents or essential oil combinations in order to make products that awaken the senses and revitalize your body and mind. I manage small batches to control the quality and freshness of products. Especially when it comes to soaps, due to their handmade and hand-cut nature, slight differences between items may occur, which makes each soap bar unique
Colors and scents -like beauty- stems from inside us.
Let yourself get carried away and travel into a world of beauty and fragrance.
