Valentine’s day again! A day so small for such a complex feeling. I ‘ve never thought much of that day! I think it was because all my friends didn’t approve it. It was too “pop and mainstream” for us. However, we all felt kind of a heartbeat down inside and maybe prayed for a gift. My friends and I always got secretly prepared that day for any “occasion”! We’d buy some kind of present for our boyfriend, just in case he’d show up with a flower or something!!! It was so funny! Back then, we all wore black All stars or Doc Martins, Perfecto style leather jackets or flyight jackets. But deep down inside, a part of us was PINK! Leaving behind those old memories, landing to today, I have to confess! I still remember the first ever Valentine gift. Still have it somewhere! It was a compilation LP with…

To be honest, I think I ‘m a sane “beauty addict”. I love everything that involves feeling and looking good. It’s a bit annoying though when everything revolves around beaut, fashion and the ways things and people look. I’m in that “healthy stage” to have 2-3 beauty items that I truly love. I don’t mind knowing all the choices that exist out there. I ‘m more than ok with those few “product-friends”. Today, I’m happy to share those “friends” of mine with you! I don’t really follow beauty trends, but I try to keep up with basic new information. I have my eyes and ears open for any new suggestions or reviews. I’m mainly interested in products that combine high efficiency with “humane” prices. Who isn’t by the way? In my 40’s “turbo jet” products and technics are very welcome. If you have any suggestions, please let me know in…

Reading time 8 min Imagine this! It’s 20th of December, you’re running like a lunatic to get everything ready for Christmas in time! You come back from work sometime in the evening and you sit next to kitchen table. It’s time to brainstorm with ideas of christmas presents for your dearest people around you and …for your boss!!!! Guess what! No ideas! “…sorry, no results found!” You look straight ahead on the blank wall and think: “Ah! I’m probably very tired. I’ ll take a shower, relax a bit and I’ ll think of everything then!Easy peasy!” You have no more than 2 days to buy all you need. There is no time for such an “inconvenience”! No ideas? None? What the f@…! You take your shower, come back to the kitchen and there it is! The blank little paper with the blue…

You’re in the couch, scrolling down the feed of “a perfect body” ! You stop on a picture with “the body” getting ready to devour an instagramable dish, with rainbow colors, which is usually equivalent to packed nutrients. At the same time, you can see “the body’s” abs even under the sweatshirt!!! You’re wondering: “But how can this be? What about me! Maybe I was born without no abs?” 7 min read My darlings, don’t get upset! Υou have blood pressure, remember? See? There is something you have and “the body”doesn’t!!!!! Ok, bad joke? Maybe. But you get my point! That was a scene that many of us have experienced even if some of us don’t really care about the looks.

This is a recipe I love! It has made my life easy and my family very happy! I will share with you the quickest recipe ever, so that you can have the tastiest bread in 90 minutes! Reading time: 6 min I grew up with two mothers from Epirus, the little known paradise of NW Greece. There is a “King” of eating habits up there called pies! So, mastering the “dough” is vital. I could talk for hours and hours, naming feelings of my childhood when I was covered in flour while baking delicious pies with my aunt Mahi! Feelings of joy, creativity, love, easiness…!I was a very lucky girl to have tasted such delicious pies in my life! I came to adore any kind of dough, bread included! Everyday life though,leaves me no time for handmade bread. My kids are eating bread from the bakery store.…

Only by reading the title of this post you must be wondering: “What’s wrong with this woman!?” September…optimistic….REALLY? September is when “unfortunate” things occur, like the following: Vacations are over …for good! For the next 9 months or so, we parents, will be trying to make our children study and “grow up”. Teenagers can sometimes be very hard to deal with. That’s not something new, I know! But September seems to underline this! Summer is still here, especially in the mediterranean countries, like Greece where I live! The weather is still great but at the same time “next summer” is almost 10 months away! Psycho??? Expenses are huge every beginning of the school year! Taxes payments are also choking every middle family! We spend more time in the house and so…soccer is always on TV. I don’t know about you but I have three of them (males) in…

Great results! Let’s get into it! I entered Instagram world for the needs of this blog. Before this, I was never really interested in social media.

I prefer to get in touch with people by getting out of my house to connect or by picking up a phone and make a call.…

It’s the 2nd of February today and Christianity celebrates Candlemas! But my world, celebrates Suzette, the most perfect orange crepe ! You are probably wondering what came to me and suddenly Christianity is a subject for today’s post, but whoever knows me already sees behind the lines! I know very little about Christian habits and celebrations (I prefer astrophysics). Moreover, some of you already know how ridiculous I believe is the fact that every day of the year is dedicated to something, anything! Important Notice! Nothing ridiculous about the days that serve social and health purposes in order to support people in need! But, let’s avoid being extremely serious and come back to the main subject here – The Crepe!!! Today not only Christianity but the whole world should be celebrating the one and only French Crepe! Yeah! Clap your hands in the air!! But how on earth…
