The narcissists and how to spot them in your life

I can only imagine that you came across this article to see if someone close to you who significantly affects you is a narcissist or has elements of narcissistic behavior.
And I don't mean by the innocent myth of the beautiful Narcissus who fell in love with his image in the reflection of the water but in the very negative sense of the effect of narcissistic behavior possessed by toxicity in the words and actions, something we read and see lately almost everywhere.

Face creams I used this month

So today I will talk to you about the beauty combination of a Korres serum with both Vichy Liftactiv Supreme day and night creams.
Maybe - I say maybe - Vichy Liftactiv Supreme creams by themselves wouldn't have excited me so much as a result, if I hadn't used along them with the serum Black Pine by the Greek company Korres with which I have to admit I'm thrilled.
But why the Anti-Wrinkle Firming & Face Lifting 3D Serum 3D BLACK PINE Contour Correction by KORRES made me feel that way?

Do the pilots forget how to fly?

In Greece we are saying that thing about riding bikes “just like riding a bicycle” that includes other things too, that once you’ve learned doing them, you never forget how to do them again, no matter how much time has passed by. Like that We Don't Ever Forget How to Ride a Bike we could suppose that flying a plane would be exactly the same. But what’s the truth here? Can pilots get rusty and forget how to fly?

Greece in Lonely Planet's tribute

According to the Lonely’s Planet tribute Greece may not be known worldwide for implementing formal initiatives surrounding sustainable practices, but informally, Greeks have been green for centuries.
The age-old habit of growing vegetables, harvesting olives and preparing silky oil and cooking up a storm with tomatoes, fresh fish and wild greens is the norm for most folk whether they live on an island or the mainland. If a village doesn’t whip up a unique dish using a wild herb or vegetable prolific to their area, you can be sure they’ll have their own take on a more traditional, national dish...
