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

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

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

DIY Jewelry Stands!

DIY jewelry stands - DIY θήκες κοσμημάτων

I love crafts and I love Pinterest.com that always gives me nice ideas! And since it came up, follow us on Pinterest to see both our own ideas and the ideas that inspire us. I close the brackets and continue … In search of a solution for jewelry storage, as I have my own tangled in little boxes in a drawer, I came across this interesting idea with the cube. Read More

We love movies: True Stories!

Movies based on true stories - Ταινίες βασισμένες σε αληθινές ιστορίες

I’ve always liked movies based on true stories. I admit that I am unable to make an objective assessment of these movies. I liked almost every movie based on a true story I’ve seen. I always judge a movie by the general feeling that it leaves to me. Besides, my view about art is very specific: Over-analysis destroys art’s magic! In movies based on true stories I am intrigued by the story and I don’t pay attention to anything else. But how can a person’s life be indifferent? Read More

Breakfast Picnic!

Breakfast Picnic - Πρωινό Πικνίκ

Who doesn’t like the idea of a picnic in the countryside! But usually, we never make it real. Because we haven’t got an appropriate park nearby because we don’t want to put ourselves out because we always have an excuse… But it is a nice chance to get away a little bit out of the ordinary and enjoy nature. Children are always excited about that sort of things! Read More

Red Easter Eggs

Red Easter Eggs - Κόκκινα Πασχαλινά Αβγά

This is the blogger’s curse! We cannot wait until Holy Thursday to dye Easter eggs but we should paint them earlier and photograph them to show them to you! I was not satisfied with having only the black and white painted eggs, so I decided that rain or shine I will also paint red eggs as tradition states. According to orthodox Christian tradition, eggs are dyed red to symbolize the blood of Christ. I do not obey tradition so much, but we could definitely not crack black eggs on Easter! Read More

Black and White Easter Eggs!

Black and White Easter Eggs - Ασπρόμαυρα Πασχαλινά Αβγά

This Easter I decorated my home with Black and White Eggs! I do observe traditions, but I also like to make different and new things. Especially things that my mom would never do! In Greece, we all paint red eggs, but as anyone does it, I wanted to show you something more modern and interesting. The black and white eggs I made are beautiful and perfect for decoration not only for Easter but throughout the year! Read More
