Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Mykonos is the perfect spot to feel the wind in your hair , while you are watching the one of a kind Greek Sunset.
No matter where you turn to, you will always have your perfect picture from any angle.

I simply adore the colors of the Greek sky and everything that wind will bring and usually it's the pure sense of the Mediterranean… lavender , olives, sea and the nature surrounded .

Visit Mykonos, to paint with the colors of the wind ! 🍁🍃🎋

Hand made heaven in Mykonos

Hand made work is what I admire the most. The dedication, creation and the patience to make a certain design is something that is worth paying for. 
Boho style will never fade away, it will be popular especially when it comes to a beach wear , casual days and unique vibes. 
Walking in Mykonos around, I found this unique shop around the corner of Little Venice named “Sagar” where this young designer Bankovic Ivana created her hand made heaven. 
Here you’ll find a different kinds of clothes, accessorize, shoes and you’ll be amazed of the creativity of this young woman. 
She is warm, kind and has a great knowledge in fashion and style. 

If you visit Mykonos, “Sagar” handmade accessorize store is where you should go and you’ll love it! 

 

There is no “WE” in chocolate …

Chocolate… no matter which shape or flavor, in my World, you are welcomed anytime! 

Chocolate makes us happy, fat but yet attractive . I can fall in love easily with a chocolate, and I know it won’t break my heart. 

Chocolate is good and available at anytime. It will always pick up the phone and it won’t cheat with other sweets :)) ! It will bring you peace and happiness in your soul, and it will be faithful until the end of time. 

Greek people are the masters when it comes to sweets. Baklava of any kind , cookies and sweets from any flavors ,  and no matter which one you are going to choose, you won’t make a mistake. 

A bakery chain named “Terkenlis” from Thessaloniki is a great choice for a quick sweet stop. You’ll find different kinds of sweets and they all taste great. Prices are affordable, and it’s great quality. ✌🏽


Enjoy in the magic of chocolate: https://youtu.be/RDoGT5nflI4

My messenger for the Summer

“After women, flowers are the most divine creations” – said once Christian Dior …

Women… we should celebrate our strenght and wisdom daily… Sometimes we behave naughty , and cross the lines, but we are the restless soliders for our family and loved ones… From all of those details for attention, we admire flowers the most ! Cuz it’s sincere, colorful and vintage.

Summer is here, and holidays are on our agenda! Ah, swimsuits, salt and waves, cocktails and beach volleyball! Can you already smell the spray tan that screams: AHOY SUMMER?!

My first messenger for this Summer is my new flower printed dress by Stradivarius , Inditex. As a former crew over there, I must say from year to year, your collections has been inspiring and original in every meaning of the word. 

Wear flowers, feel romantic and it doesn’t matter if you are single or crazy in love, Summer is here to keep us warm and pretty! 

Greece is my priority on Summer’s agenda, where are you heading next?

You wanna one of a kind Summer? Try Greece and have a Summer that you would love to revive until the end of your life. This is the Halkidiki chapter!

Greece in the world is known by many things, from history to the amazing landscapes and sunsets that only this country will offer you. For two years in a row I have been working there, meeting and hangin’ around with my greek crew and having a blast. You see, Greece is not all about Olympics and Goddess or olive oils. It’s so much more than that. Drinking coffee in Greece is a way of culture. Greek people love to spend their free time with family and friends in tavernas out, with a seaview. Beside the great cuisine that is a mix of olive oil and spices, you can’t get enough of the beautiful people around you, the great frappe and tasty greek salad, urban music, clean beaches and all those landscapes that only God and Zeus can create in their secret project ” Greece, the middle name of heaven”. From what I have seen and discovered , I’m sharing with you my impression and warm recommendations of what is the best places for going out, on which beach to lay and relax, where are the best crepes around,coffee bars etc.

Thessaloniki
The town that never sleeps,and it’s a great city offering you great things to do. For a coffee break try the Boston and Friends on the Aristotelis Square or if you wanna great food and glass of wine visit the “Kitchen Bar” or “Brothers in Law” . Feta cheese with almonds and honey or Santorini salad … Are you ready to get drown in the sea of tastes? Believe me, it’s worth dying for. And no one needs to save you.These are the IT places where you will see great people, feel positive vibes and drink great coffee with a sea view. A coffee with a cookie served it is a must.

For the nightlife, try the famous Valaoritou street, where are many good bars offering you cool electro vibes, good service and promising you great night. Personally, my warm recommendation is the bar “The Real Rockenrolla” where you will have a blast, I promise you. Usually you will see around the DJ many guys or girls, but don’t wonder, they just enjoy in the music art and are the current support.

Halkidiki – the first finger

From Afytos , then Kalithea to Hanioti all these small villages have to offer you great beaches and clean sea, Sunsets that are worth seeing, beach bars and parties that you won’t find anywhere else near. Chalkidiki is the place where many Greeks from Thessaloniki or as they call Salonica come to enjoy in their weekend into their holiday houses. Here you will see the typical Mediterranean architecture with stones , white walls and blue windows. Yes, sounds like the true Greek style. In Afytos you can eat great cuisine and get amazed about the mix of Italian and Greek culture. From the great stone balcony, you can catch the one of a kind sunset.
Kalithea is known for the best night life and summer clubs. Pearl and Angels are must see! With a such a beautiful people, great service indoor and outdoor Pearl is known as the “fancy club” while Angles as the “after party club”. Both of them are worth visiting. Great music vibes by the famous greek DJ Kanakis and people dancing until the sun comes up.
Hanioti is the last village for my warm recommendation where you will eat the best crepes at Platia, attend the best beach bar parties at the Molos Beach and eat in great tavernas such as To Elenikon, and have the best coffee and view at the Paralio Bar, where the owner and his amazing family will make you feel like home, and you will want to come back again every year.

On Molos Beach you will have to reserve a sun bed, cuz usually it’s crowded. But don’t worry this is because it is one of the best beach bars, where you will be satisfied from the service and what Molos have to offer you. You can’t get bored with Molos. Greek hot guys and girls ,tattooed handsome bodies covered with oil and Caroten, white smile and great style. Can you handle it? Book your tickets asap, and have a great Summer.

My next destination is : Mykonos.

Traveling around- Be you in a thousand pieces made up of collage of the multicultural pallete.

Traveling around the globe, has taught me so much lessons about myself first on how much is affecting me every new destination and taste from the brand new cuisine that has been just discovered. Greek , English , Macedonian, Serbian, Spanish or American sky they are all different for me, but under every sky I feel like part of that culture. You see, this piece of planet in the never ending Universe, is such a great road that you need to walk in your shoes and capture all the landscapes, smiles and faces with your eyes. Since a kid I have been amazed by the airports and every time I was saying to myself : ,,How lucky are the people in the plane right now “.

Traveling is like the last drop of a water in Sahara for me. That’s how much is worth in my head. Don’t you get excited about every new word that you will learn on the new foreign language? I just love it.

In Italy be Italian, in Greece smile and speak loud as Greek, in Macedonia eat and enjoy in the great cuisine like the Macedonians do, in London try to speak the English like they do, in Paris be fashionable and romantic, but in the bottom of your heart, be you in a thousand pieces of collage of the multicultural pallete. And at the end, paint with all of the colors of the wind, you will get amazed of the portrait of your life that you will paint.
