MY GREEK LITTLE PARADISE-NAFPLIO

Those of you who follow me on Instagram probably know that I went on a small trip to Nafplio last week. Just a small getaway to let off steam and have fun with friends. It was amazing! Nafplio was actually the first capital of Greece and, since it is so close to Athens, I've been there many times. But I love this place so much, I never get bored of it. It's a city near the sea, with cute little alleys and important history. Most of these photos were taken from the castle Palamidi, which has an amazing view of the entire city and the sea. As I've said before, I am deeply in love with the sea. I truly believe that us Greeks can't live away from the blue. It's in the sky, in the sea, in our flag, inside every single one of us. Did you know it's believed that the colors of the greek flag come from the blue of the sky and the sea and the white of the waves? I don't know if everyone here loves the sea as much as I do, but I know that if I never saw it again I would be miserable. I consider myself blessed I have the chance to live in such a wonderful country and visit all these amazing beautiful places. I may be a big-city girl to the bone, but I have our blue waters deep inside my heart. Enough with that, I'll just let you enjoy the beautiful city of Nafplio, hoping that one day you'll go visit it, if you haven't already.
What do you think of these photos? Have you ever been to Nafplio? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think.

GREY CLOUDS

Grey days, grey ways, grey clothes... Sometimes it feels like everything is so depressing and blue (well...grey...) and that there is nothing you can do about it. But it's not true! You may have to wear tons of clothes that add an extra 5kg, but it doesn't mean that you can't be fashionable. Turtlenecks can be tricky so you have to make sure that it will be cold all day long, otherwise you'll end up sweating really bad and no one wants that. With such a thick sweater it's not always easy to wear a necklace. This is one of the reasons why I am a huge lover of bracelets, especially during winter. Add some sparckle at a total black oufit by stacking your bracelets and bangles and make some fun combinations. 
I know it's not the best confidence boost to walk around dressed in color while it's dark and cloudy outside. I, myself adore black and grey outfits so much. But this whole weather might turn your mood grey too. If you prefer to go for safe looks it's ok! Why not lighten up your entire outfit with a big bright smile instead? It's raining and you can't go out, do what you want, and your plans for the day are cancelled? That's fine! You can always use this day to relax a little bit. Stay inside, read a good book, listen to your favorite songs, watch your favorite series, take a fluffy blanket and stay warm on the couch, drink loads of tea and hot cocoa, call your friends, paint, be creative!
