Le Coin d’ Alsace

4 Αυγ.

It is time to start sharing with you my experiences from my last trip. Today I want to show you a little place called «Le Coin d’ Alsace» in Strasbourg that is the cutest, most wonderful and adorable small store you should visit. It is housed inside a building that characterises the main architecture in the city, a black and white timber-framed house! YES! I don’t know about you, but I love these houses. Inside the house there is the ground floor and on your right there are stairs that get you to two more floors! Apart from the tourist stuff you will find in any other place, here you are most likely to buy things for your living room, like cushions, for your kitchen, like oven mittens and decorative stuff for your own bedroom. Take a look at a few of the great items that can be purchased here…

So, I got some things for myself. My favourite is the owl! I almost adore it! It will be perfect for winter nights with candles…

 

 

 

 

Gossip Girl: Fashion Recap 1×17

2 Αυγ.

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned here that we have a new kitchen installed in our house. And I couldn’t be more excited about it! I spent about an hour today looking for delicious and easy-to-make recipes to try. I’ve bookmarked recipes mostly about cookies, muffins and brownies, some about melted cheese and a few including eggs. Tomorrow though I am trying my old-fashioned oatmeal, just to see how it goes.

While it is still summer, a few reruns of Gossip Girl won’t do anybody any harm. There are still two more episodes from season one. I am a bit disappointed that there are not so many great outfits from both.  But Blair manages to make up for the lack of outfits by wearing a very gorgeous dress at the end of both episodes.

Back to Basics

29 Ιολ.

Heeeeeeey, you guys! I am back from holidays! I feel sleepy and dizzy from the trip back home and have so many memories with me. Milan, Paris and Strasbourg were amazing… only for the part where rain was involved. Especially when I was in Paris, it was a bit devastating, but still Paris looked as magical as I had left it. Milan was very much the fashionable city everyone’s been saying and Strasbourg…was incredible, magnificent and so many more adjectives. But whole posts about them will come soon! Now, I am back to Athens getting ready for a new adventure, one that will last a little more than 12 weeks.

Anyways, August is almost here, the last month of summer, and autumn seems closer. There are a lot of lovely new collections that are coming our way. But still there is the smell of summer in the air and in a country like Greece you can’t help but to love summer in all its beauty. So when I saw these inspiring photos from Free People taken in Venice I was inspired and had to share them with you!

Au revoir mes amis!

The day has almost come! Tomorrow I will be traveling towards Italy and closer to my dream destination. It is Paris of course and I really hope that this time I will discover different things. It is difficult to explore all of Paris just once. You have to go again and see things you’ve missed the previous time.

There are a few things someone can enjoy in Paris. Culture, food, shopping and beautiful buildings! I can’t wait to take photos of gorgeous sightings and buildings and taste mouthwatering tarts and croissants! So, I leave you with a few photos that describe what Paris is all about!

Gossip Girl: Fashion Recap 1×16

14 Ιολ.

Hello dear readers! This will may be my last post until I go off  on holidays this Sunday. I am so excited because I am going via interail to Milan, Paris and Strasbourg! Travel is my life, I cannot bear to ever stop going to places, seeing new things and tasting different cuisines. Using trains in Europe is so much fun and I’ve had my fair share of experiences. Once in Switzerland I lost a train due to bad timing… I was almost a minute late and it had already gone! I have stepped into amazing trains (from Barcelona to Madrid) and to terrible trains. But however good or bad the train was, the experience is something everyone has to try. Especially until they turn 26, when the free entrances on museums, the lower prices and all the other good stuff stop!

Two episodes to go for season one. I can’t wait to explore season two again, for in season two the fashion style of the characters improves and Blair’s hair is at its best! Moving on to this episode, we have the usual leather jackets by Serena and the navy style by Blair! Love both! Συνέχεια

My new pair of oxfords

9 Ιολ.

Good morning everyone! Recently I’ve bought a new pair of flat tan oxfords and I am so excited! Honestly, I had been after this pair for two months and waited for sales to come just to get it! It’s not like it costed hundreds of euros, but still it was worth the wait! Oxfords are the kind of shoes that can go with everything and are so in right now. Of course, I own a pair of heeled leather brown oxfords for 3 years now, but never had a pair of flats. A lot of celebrities are wearing them these days, but who better to wear British shoes than a British? I am talking about Sienna Miller of course…

Inspired by Sienna I have put together four looks that I think would look great this summer!

Look one: Combine a bright colored dress with your oxfords. Because of their color (tan) they look great with any other color. But even if yours aren’t tan, it’s still a good idea to pair them with a fun dress.

Look two: A pair of jeans is always a safe  choice. Just add a bit of color to that!

Look three: During summer everyone’s putting on a pair of shorts. Why not wear them with your oxfords? This is a great look for summer.

Zara shorts, Massimo Dutti t-shirt, shoes, Bag from personal collection

Look four: The final and more girly look is this one with a high-waisted skirt and a nice golden purse. Perfect for going out!

Gossip Girl: Fashion Recap 1×15

6 Ιολ.

You know you’ve had enough of Gossip Girl when you dream you are mates with Serena and Blair and live in New York City. Yeah, you’ve guessed correctly. I had a dream last night where I was living with these two amazing gals and having so much fun. Then I woke up feeling happy and a bit like an Upper East Sider. But what can I do? I love the girls and the series and will mourn when all of it is over.

This Fashion Recap wasn’t so much interesting in the fashion department, but a new member was added into the Upper East Side fashionistas, Georgina Sparks. She is an interesting character, not so likable, with beautiful hair! I love brunettes (since I am not one) when they have light red highlighted hair and gorgeous light skin complexion. Συνέχεια
