About Me + Disclaimer

BREAKEVEN is an Athens-based blog written and edited by Fani Mari, beauty, lifestyle and fashion journalist.

With a masters degree in Fashion Journalism from Central Saint Martins and various contributions to publications such as Coveteur, HuffPost US, Cosmopolitan UK + US, The Independent, Glamour UK, Byrdie, MINE Magazine, Citizen Femme, Global Blue, 1Granary, Design Scene, D’Scene Magazine, Drapers and others. This blog is a personal diary, a compilation of product reviews, travelling, outfit shots, inspiration, general thoughts and everything in between. This blog is mainly about beauty and skincare as well as fashion.

Fani has seen the catastrophic effects of fast fashion over the years of working in the industry and has always favoured up and coming designers, high quality materials that last the test of time, hence she’s involved in a peer-to-peer rental platform By Rotation, to add to the circular economy movement and focusing on sharing rather than owning.

Some products may have been sent to me by brands, but this doesn’t contribute to my opinion in any way. Although I am grateful for being sent things I will always give my personal honest opinion about them. Any PR samples products are marked with an asterisk (*).

I do also use affiliate links within my posts, whereby I receive a small amount if someone on my site decides to buy something from the link I’ve provided. These are not paid for links but generated by me using pre-approved affiliate schemes (like Skimlinks, ShopStyle Collective and RewardStyle).

If you decide to purchase something via my links, this isn’t at any extra cost to you and it’s very much appreciated as it helps me continue producing content. If you’d rather not generate any commission, you can find a link yourself and not use the links I’ve provided.

I never post pre-written posts, and for any sponsored posts the fee changes depending on the type of post and work required.

If you have any questions regarding this please don’t hesitate to contact me.
