ATHENS EXCLUSIVE DESIGNERS WEEK #DAY1

Yes I went. Again. Yes you probably know since I've been continuingly spamming you on instagram. But, if a picture is worth a thousand words, what can anyone say about a video? I made another one, just for you. I didn't go to the first show and the last one was Topshop. The truth is it wasn't all that good. Some pieces were really nice, but I was expecting more. But that's not the reason I didn't include it in the video. You see, something went wrong with the lighting during the show-just like in Marks and Spencer-and also my battery died. I'm sorry for that. I promise next season I'll have a lot more to show you.
For now, enjoy this quick video and imagine you were there with me. That day was seriously so good. We had a lot of fun and met with many other bloggers and people from the industry. Music, fashion, friends and delicious hibiscus juice from Starbucks inside the show. Soooo good! I wish I could go the rest of the week too, but time to do things I like is one of the many things that were taken away from me this year. Anyways, enjoy*in HD*♥

MY GREEK LITTLE PARADISE: BEACH BY THE CITY

Hello guys! How are you all? I hope your weekend went well. Mine was great because I had the chance to relax for a while and unwind, which we all know is hard to find. 
On Saturday morning I went at the beach with my bestie. Of course we didn't swim, with 15⁰C and less outside, but we had so much fun just hanging by the sea and feeling the sun on our skins. I know most people wouldn't call this an "adventure" but for us it was, especially when you're used to being inside everyday studying or walking in the city. 
Anyways, I decided to film some moments and I think they make a cute video. After all this blog is also about travelling!
I hope that you guys like what I did. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below♥

MY GREEK LITTLE PARADISE: ATHENS NATIONAL GARDEN

Happy Sunday everyone! Let's go back a few sundays, the day I visited the National Garden. I was born and raised in Athens and so did my parents and grandparents. I love Greece so much, for the natural beauty, the history, the sea and the sky. Sometimes it gets a little or a lot overwhelming in the big city. It feels like you need a getaway from the cars and the stress. So, you can imagine what a delight it is to be able to do that, without having to leave the city. The National Garden, used to be the Royal Garden, right next to the old palace that is now the parliament. So if you thought that this beautiful place is like in the suburbs or anything, you may want to rethink. It is right in the city center, I mean you can go there with any public transportation. It's peaceful, full of trees and flowers, and I'm sure that if I had more time, I would have seen more. One of the best parts is that everyone seems to be respecting the peacefulness of the place, because even though there were many people there, everyone was quiet and devoted to something. Jogging, reading, drinking a beverage, having a picnic or just enjoying some alone time in this beautiful place. You can also find a cafe inside it, and lakes and many more. I just love how the sun rays pass through the leaves creating a beautiful abstract pattern and how you can look up and see the tall palm trees and clear blue sky. Kinda reminds me of some scenes from old movies in the countryside of England(not the palm trees!), but with slightly more light! It's absurd to think that this huge place once belonged to only one person. But now it's free for everyone and I highly recommend you visit it. I promise you won't regret it! 
Do you guys like this "little" paradise? Have you ever visited Athens? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!

PLANET FASHION TV

I'm so excited to reveal my collaboration with a new digital lifestyle magazine, Global Trend News! I will be writing articles for Planet Fashion Tv section and you can find them here together with other great topics every week. So far, there is only one article of mine but there is more to come. You can check it out here and tell me what you think. 
I'm just so happy that I am able to write about what I love and share my passion with others. Which also was the initial purpose when I started my blog. I love writing about all the things that intrigue my imagination and also writing my own stories and poems. I don't ever let anybody read them, but that's just me being shy.
This photo above, is from Fashion Week last season. I can't believe it's only one day away! All this time I've been waiting and struggling with real life. And I've been jealous of all the lucky ones who got to go to Fashion Week in Paris, Milan, NY... Let's pray that it will be worth the waiting(fingers crossed)! Those of you who live in Greece, are you planning to go? 
If you want, please check out my article on Global Trend News, and leave a comment to let me know what you think.
One last thing. I just want to say that I am grateful for all the things that are happening in my life. I hope that they will keep coming and that all the bad ones will eventually go away. I wish you all an amazing weekend-and Friday night^*

NEON RAUM

0b0cc4ef43d9d775e5f421bd03e6427a593ca0a3c676f56653
Saturday, today, and I decided to take a "little" walk around town. Just some shopping(for exciting upcoming projects!) and goofing around with my bff. Searching, also, for people with interesting style in order to upload, at some point, a couple of photos at the Street Style section. It's not easy to find many, and some of them don't want to be photographed. This is why I'm still gathering material and when I have what I need I will show it to you. Let's hope that it won't take too long...
Anyway, after hours of searching for the right pieces to buy, the right people to photograph and the right place to eat, we ended up at NEON RAUM. A creative space, used as photo studio and showroom. There, you can find displayed amazing pieces of Greek designers, in a place that kinda reminds you of a loft. Interesting and unexpected stuff combined with the artistic vibe of the owners/designers, make truly the perfect match! Colorful and inspiring pieces together with smiling faces. 
Who needs anything else?

SUNNY & FLUFFY

I know I should have made this post earlier this week, but I've been super busy with a symposium the past few days and I didn't get the chance to upload this. Anyway, here it is now. As I mentioned at my previous post, these photos are taken by my dear friend Dimitra, you can check out her work here: http://instagram.com/dtziv http://dtwinter12.tumblr.com/ she is amazing! 
The other day, while strolling around, we found this gorgeous little place with great light and we knew we had to take some photos. I love posing but I also love being behind the camera so all the photos we took were so beautiful!
This fluffy sweater is so comfy and pretty but it was a huge mistake since that day the weather was really warm. It adds some extra volume at the upper body but I love the way it feels. But that's just me...It was great working with Dimitra and I look forward to the next time! Enjoy the weather in these photos!

MY GREEK LITTLE PARADISE-ATHENS

Are you ready for a trip to Ancient Greece? Back when art, science, philosophy and democracy created the perfect combination... These photos are from the actual ruins in the center of Athens. The old market, the temples and the houses, all still there taking us ages ago. It is truly amazing the feeling you get when you visit places like that, even if you've been there many times before. You just feel connected with the glory of the past, with the great philosophers and politicians. You can also see some Christian monuments being there in such harmony with the environment. It's really surprising for many people to discover that right in the center of the big city full of traffic and modern problems, still lays this peaceful, monumental place. How can someone not love their city when it consists of  so many hidden treasures? 
I chose to display at the end, a photo of my awesome friend(and photographer!) who helped me make some amazing shots that I'm going to show you on my next post. Don't you just love her Toms?
Have you ever been in Athens? If yes what did you think of it?
