Travel Greece: Monemvasia and Kythira

Monemvasia, Kythira, Greece - Μονεμβασιά, Κύθηρα, Ελλάδα

For those who want to go on vacation but have not decided yet, I have to suggest a fascinating combination. Monemvasia and Kythira. I made this trip with Dimitris before Melina was born and when we just got our first car. And we decided to write as many kilometers as we could that summer. Monemvasia offers tranquility and a trip back in time and Kithira beautiful beaches. That’s a two-to-one trip. Romance and relaxation! Read More

Summer Thoughts

Summer thoughts - Σκέψεις για το καλοκαίρι

Summer officially begins for me today. It is the first morning of my vacations. No, I have not gone anywhere, I am on my balcony and enjoy a few moments of loneliness. It is the first morning after a full year that I can drink my coffee loosely on the balcony and not stand up in the kitchen rushed. And when I say “year”, I mean academic. For me, the year is always changing in June rather than on New Year’s Eve. Every June, I make my review, set new goals and reassemble myself to start again from September. Those who are involved in education in any way may better understand what I am saying. Read More

Favorite Outfits: Summer Formal Outfit

Summer formal outfit - Καλοκαιρινό επίσημο στυλ ντυσίματος

Along with the summer, the invitations for weddings and christenings arrived. The basic question is always “What will I wear now?”. Because I used to dress up very casually, I always have a problem when it is to buy an outfit a little more formal. This year, however, I thought so thoroughly, because there is no time for wasting money. Read More

Easy Meals

Homemade Frozen Yogurt

Homemade frozen yogurt

My favorite dessert for summer (and not only) is frozen yogurt. Because it’s a bit difficult to find tasty frozen yogurt and if you find it is usually quite expensive, I started looking for recipes. I was looking for something easy (of course) and healthy (as much as possible, otherwise I would eat carrots, not ice cream). And I found in pandespani.gr (very interesting cooking blog) this recipe that I will show you below. Easy, delicious and healthy! Read More

Books we love: Goodnight stories for rebel girls

Goodnight stories for rebel girls

A few days ago I bought this particular book for Melina and, although it differs greatly from the rest of her books, she often asks to read the book about important women as she says. I discovered it accidentally a few months ago when I saw a video on Facebook “The ugly truth of children’s book”, which is worth seeing (https://www.facebook.com/rebelgirls/videos/1596694693691853/?pnref=story). It is a video made by the two writers of the book and is about how women’s characters are presented in children’s books. Read More

Pancakes with Nutella, Peanut Butter and Fresh Red Berries

Pancakes

Hello! I intended to write a special pancakes recipe. Something like oats-pancakes, maybe with banana, or filled with Nutella. (I have tried all of these!). But when I realized that most of my friends have not even made the simple, plain pancakes, I just thought I had to convince them to try them! Pancakes are our favorite breakfast (only on weekends of course!). They are easy, delicious and you can serve them either sweet or salty! Read More

Diy Yarn Wall Hanging

DIY Yarn Wall Hanging - DIY Απλό Μακραμέ για τον Τοίχο

Yarn wall hangings are really widespread! I see them everywhere, especially on American blogs and of course in Pinterest‘s décor ideas. I love this type of decoration which gives a warmth to your place. It can make your home a little bit more bohemian and cozy. I promised myself I would buy one too, but then I thought that I ‘d better make one on my own. Read More

My small Balcony Before and After

Balcony Before and After - Μπαλκόνι Πριν και Μετά

A balcony as small as it may be, it doesn’t cease to be a balcony. Especially during spring and summer, it gives us the sense of coolness we seek (of course most of the times it’s a fictitious sense – we live in Greece – ha-ha), it addresses our need to escape from the 4 walls of our house, even for a while. Personally, in the summer, I find an evening on the balcony very refreshing, especially when we are stuck in the city because of work. Read More

Review: The Ritual of Ayurveda – Balancing collection

Rituals of Ayurveda

For some time now I want to talk to you about Rituals. It is a company specializing mainly in body care products, perfumes, and home fragrances. For the first time, I tried them when I received a gift set from the Netherlands (where they are very widespread) from a very good friend of mine. Needless to tell you I was delighted! The Ayurveda collection that I will review in this post was a gift from my sister. Read More
