Hestia might be a minor goddess for the Greeks, but she became incredibly important for the Romans, who knew her as Vesta. She is the deity of the virgins, of chastity and a worshiper of the deities herself. If you are too worried about religion, whatever your religion may be and even make some sacrifices to honor your god (or gods) then you are most likely a Hestia kind of girl. The Greeks told the myth in which Hestia gave her position as one of the twelve Olympians to Dionysus. Any picture of your deity to decorate your home would do to show your resemblance with Hestia.
The Demeter myth tells us the story of a very caring, loving mother. She had a daughter with Zeus, who she named Persephone. However, Hades, king of the underworld, fell in love with her and kidnapped her. Demeter became extremely sad so she stopped nurturing the seeds and flowers of the world. She came to an arrangement with Hades, he´d let Persephone go for 8 months but he´d keep her for 4, and so the cropping season and the agriculture cycles began. So if you can´t do anything until your sons and daughters are with you, then you are a Demeter kind of woman. Her symbol is the lotus staff, so wear something with a lotus flower on it.
Athena, do you know how she was born? Zeus was quite the husband, always chasing after girls. A goddess, Metis, fancied his eyes and so, he finally managed to sleep with her. However, and oracle told Zeus that Metis´s second child would be a boy who would rip him of his throne. To avoid this, he ate her in one big chump. Nine months later, a terrible headache was driving Zeus crazy, so, with an axe, the god of fire opened his head and thus, Athena was born with sword, shield and helmet, fully grown and ready for battle. She is the wisest of the gods and a formidable warrior, always thinking about justice. If Athena describes you best, then you can wear olive green [&hellip

And, to combine it with a bit of fashion, we will also suggest something you can wear to let people know (or at least yourself) which mighty goddess is winning the battle going on in your head and in your heart!
It can be quite hard to find original, previously unseen accessories. Of course some of the most popular ones are necklaces, but it would seem like there are not a whole lot of possibilities when it comes to creating new models. However, we will let you in what´s new and hot in the fashion world: real insect jewelry. We can assure you that you would rarely find someone else with a necklace just like yours if you find one like this: Doesn´t it look like a real sapphire? Well, it is not, it is actually a beetle. There are some other simpler ones like this:
Let´s face it, it is almost impossible to reproduce the shape of a butterfly´s wing with metal or any other sort of material. The reason is that their wings are extremely complex, full of colors and a very complex irrigating system which cannot be copied. That is why some clever jewelry makers decided to stop trying to copy mother nature´s most abundant and resistant creatures (insects of course) and decided to make jewelry pieces right out of them! For example, take a look at this weird yet strangely attractive cicada wing earrings. Try to get those colors from metal!

I imagine the creation of the high heeled sneakers going on something like this: the high heel industry wanted to get to those women who avoid them, mainly those who always wear sneakers or tennis, but they really didn´t know who to get them to wear heels. And so, in a brilliant second, they must have thought of merging them together and so the high heeled sneakers were born. We can´t say we will get used to them shortly, but they are certainly quite original, so we offer you some examples and will let you decide for yourself whether they might be right for you or not.
Sometimes, the fashion world goes simply way too far. One of those cases are with the invention of some of the world´s highest, most uncomfortable heels every to be created!

However, if you do like this kind of fashion, here we show you some of the highest, most fashionable heels we would find. And if you think that´s too much, wait till you see these:
Have you ever wondered why the stilettos have such shape and where the name comes from? If you are thinking they were used in order to inflict a lot of pain into someone, you are absolutely right. Even when you might think the word might come from “styling”, it does not. Stilettos were a very fine, concealed dagger used in many cases for assassination. It is no wonder why your beloved stilettos are so painful now, isn´t it? The very word suggests something quite unpleasant, and now you know it for sure. Stilettos are, like its cousins the daggers, lovely but deadly.
