Jiggling around town

 I've noticed that this year Christmas has been a numb period....
However, i do find it useful to always chase the fun bits in every season.
There will always be some kind of recession but we cant waste our lives waiting for better days.....
The best days are the ones we live right this moment.
My eyes caught a bit of this....

Forget everything else and keep the whimsy part, the lovey part and the sweetness of loved ones around the fireplace. 
Jesus came in a stable and animals kept him central heating, nothing extravagant.....and that's was He expects from us....just us!

p.s. a bit of chocolate and marshmallows could help but lets focus on whats real.

Sleepover party/Lounging around

Now the fall is finally here it;s time for some sleepovers/lounging around the house.
Lounging around is all about being comfortable....
In my list its all about loose tops, cute leggings, silly tops to compliment the main thingy, soft socks and cool accessories.

The T-shirt project

First of all let me get this straight...........i have no idea how to all!
This doesn't mean i can't cut....right?Right!
Well....this summer i bought this cute polka dot t-shirt from zara that had a veeeeery low cut at the back....
i loved  it so i bought it but when i got home, i realised it was semi transparent. Somebody else may not even had noticed this but i always look at the was determined i would find a way that would not hide the beautiful back of the t-shirt but that would remove this semi-transparency thingy.
The issue was resolved in 4 easy steps.
First of all i had to look  in my closet for a t-shirt i did not mind altering - Done - With a nude tank top i've had for ages. I loved it (hence the ownership of 3 different colors) but it was old and i always used it to compliment another top.
Then I used this yellow chalk my youngest sister has to draw the part that had to be cut.

Then i used pins to secure the two tops together.

Drum roll please....
Mission accomplished!

It was so easy that i've since then repeated this procedure on the black one as well. I bought this cute see-through cardigan from Zara with a really beautiful cut at the back, in the shape of a cry, and i couldn't waste it by wearing a normal t-shirt inside.

Bottom line? Easy peasy.......if i could do it...anyone can!

You are driving me nuts........with your spices

Some people have the strength and courage to go on pension and suddenly leave their town house and go build a house on the countryside....
I don't think i'll  ever be like that unless there's internet and everything in the "civilization pack"....hahaha....
I do admire "those" people though for their courage and willingness to get out of their comfort zone!
Their reward for this? Growing their own vegetable, fruits, nuts and spices and enjoying living in the countryside! Not bad ha?
Well, my mom's brother and his wife are of "those" people. 
The other day my parents had visited them and they came home with these babies.
Pistachios are my favorite nuts...i like them salted and i like them in sweets!
I am not very familiar with the spice pictured above but it look soooo good i couldn't ignore it. My mom has put it on a napkin with sea salt flakes waiting for it to dry.
I'm curious how these nuts and spices are going to look like when they are ready to be used....

The last divided capital

I live in the last divided capital
The other day we went for a walk on "the other side"...
I enjoyed all the different images and cultures all within a few minutes of walking distance...Take a look!

We went to this place called "Hani tou Pantziarou" which used to be an Inn where travelers could stay for the night and they could leave their horses in the courtyard to eat, drink water and get some rest. The image below is from outside the rooms.
We also wen to Agia Sofia, it used to be a temple but now they've turned it into a mosque. It really is a pity because it's a great building to ruin it. But i found interesting the place people wash  their feet before they go in. Notice the tap and marble?
On our way back i noticed this cart.  Somebody must have been selling this fruit. I don't know the name in English but if you eat it after 2 - 3 hours in the fridge it's soooo refreshing and tasty!!!
Oh the spices!
We sat in the courtyard of the Inn and ate lahmatzun, pourekia and kattimeri. I am not sure about their origin but i think they are originally from Armenia but we also make them. 
Lahmatzun is made of minced meat. Pourekkia are made of minced meat or hallumi cheese if you prefer them salty or of cream or anari if you prefer them sweet.
Kattimeri (the one on the right side) is sweet with cinamon and honey.
Green soap bars.

That's all folks!

Long time no see!

It's been a while since i was last here so i thought i'd just share a few of the things that have made me happy lately:
  • Enjoying the sunset with loved ones
  • Relaxing by the pool
  • Seeing the beauty in driving to work on a fogy morning
  • Going to the Starbucks for a delicious frapuccino
  • Seeing all these tropical fruits
  • Going to a beach party that was surprisingly accompanied by other peoples fireworks!!!

(p.s. i'm not pictured above but i just loved these pictures!)

Lets talk jewellery for a minute.
I like unique, tiny pieces that compliment my style.
Here are the things you will usually see me wearing:

1. Pearl earrings I made using some pearls our parents gave us* recently.
2. Ring by an artist called Kalliroi - her workshop is located in the old town - Love it!
3. Just to give you an idea about sizes.
4. I made this ring to resemble a pricey one I can't afford. It's nowhere close to it (a Tiffany & Co ring) but it's satisfactory for me :)
5. 2 of my sisters and me bought this from Kalliroi and we have our name engraved.

Today I'm introducing a new column called Junkie!
Junkie is about all the little taste mishaps that are necessary to be sane.
So....I usually work long hours and by the time i'm home evem the last bird is back to its nest.
However, something unusual happened on Wednesday.
I came home super early and had the chance to just be by my self and treat me the way i liked.
All i remember was preparing this:
Then I felt guilty....

Oh well......

Fashionably late

Today I'm introducing a new column called fashionably late.
This is the column that will document all my current obsessions.

For the last 3 months I'm obsessed with this pair of sandals from Zara

I just love the feeling of rock n' roll combined with a relaxed flat shoe!
And this combination is explosive in this color.....i just love natural tones with a pop of red nail polish as it is my signature :)

Have a fun Sunday!
