Alemagou, Mykonos!

When I told you to go to Greece, there was a reason, Greece is stunning and has some pretty amazing places. One of these is the beautiful Mykonos. Who hasn't heard of this incredible island? Mykonos has it all, beaches, fun, quiet, bars, restaurants, something for everyone. Alemagou is one of these great places, a bar/restaurant next to the beach where to enjoy a lay down day on the sand and under the most gorgeous sun.

I'm Back

I am finally back, and I couldn't be happier! I have never left the blog unattended so long but then again it was the first time I felt as I did. I had a bit of an accident last week and needed a bit of time to recover. Thank you so much for your well wishes and for checking on me! There is no Sunday Outfit this week as I don't look as I would like (bruises on my face are not the best look!). Also a big thanks to N who took care of me these days, to my Mom and Dad and my lovely family, and friends. I am lucky to be surrounded by good people. Thanks to the people who helped on the street, kind people still exist. And to cheer up this rather heavy post here are some gorgeous flowers from my friends.

Wedding Wednesday: Sparkles

I was thinking what would be a great way to cheer the newlyweds during their first dance, and sparklers came to mind! Since I was a little kid I loved sparklers and how they cheered up everyone pretty much immediately and they seem to have the same effect at wedding these days. It seems they are a big trend to send off the couple in style and I love it, so cute and definitely a fun way to get your guests involved! I still love the idea of cheering them up during the first dance! Saving for when our moment comes.

Good Bones, Good Pieces

Suzanne and Lauren McGrath are a mother-daughter duo who design and decorate incredible interiors. I'm sure you have all seen Lauren's apartment in New York. I blogged about it ages ages ago. They started a blog, where they share their thifting adventures,decorating tips and everything in between, their book, also called Good Bones, Great Pieces is as fresh as their personalities and a definite must if you like classic sophisticated decoration.


The book is divided in 7 chapters, and each explores the 7 essentials that will last you a lifetime. You wonder what these pieces are? The Love seat, the demilune table, the bench, the dresser, the slipper chair, the side table and the occasional chair. All the photos are  by Lucas Allen and are utterly gorgeous  perfectly showcasing all the details this duo can create beautifully.  I took some pics off the book but I highly recommend you go ahead and get the book, it's full of inspiration and I'm sure you will really enjoy it.

Sunday Outfit

Oh London you are so pretty when you are sunny! What a cliche but oh so true, and it seems that London is ready to give the Olympics its best face ever, a big smiley sun! We don't have any Olympics tickets, and that's ok. While I think it's a fabulous event I'm ok enjoying the fun outside the Olympic Park. I had a blast in Athens in 2004 and so I can tick that of my bucket list. What about you? Have you been to any Olympics? Are you coming to London?
PS: I'm going to live, LIVE, in this skirt!!

Villa Cecilia in Corfu

Corfu is a beautiful island in Greece, and has some amazing homes too, some are inhabited all year round and rented out in the summer, other are holiday villas, there is something for everyone.Villa Cecilia is in the west part of the island, near some gorgeous beaches. The owners are a Dutch couple who left their native Holland and moved to Corfu where they built this beauty from scratch. Everything has a meaning, the kitchen, bathroom and hall tiles are neo-classical tiles collected from Athens reclamation yards. The interiors is a mixed of antiques and pieces the owners have collected, have a look and tell me it is not a stunning property. The house can be rented in the summer when the family goes away and is also available for small wedding and parties. I LOVE!

Wedding Wednesday: class and elegance

Over the weekend this first image popped up on my Pinterest, breathtaking. The chandeliers, the drapes, the flowers, the lovely vintage table. I had to find the whole wedding. Shot by Turtle Pond in Pelican Hill in Newport Beach it's the epitome of chic and elegant.

There are lots of more photos here and here but I here are some of my fave shoots, what a  bash!

C25K update and Zaggora HotPants!

So how is all this C25K running thing going? Going it is, and I won't lie, it's tiring and though. Tomorrow I will start week 5 (repeated week 4 for 2 weeks to get on with the 5 minutes intervals) and while I'm happy to keep going I dread it mildly. Still HERE I AM, and I'm going to finish it as promised to myself!
And to motivate myself last week I bought a pair of Zaggora HotPants. Zaggora pants help burn fat 4x times faster and maximise your daily workout and with my holiday around the corner I'm all for that. Has any of you tried them? Would be great to hear your thoughts and if they have worked for you!

Sunday Outfit

When the weather gives you a happy nod you take it and fully embrace it. What am I talking about? It has been raining NON stop in London for days and days but some hours yesterday so off I went and wore my new pointelle dress, I think it will be a staple in my holiday wardrobe (in 3 weeks time, let the countdown begin!) SO this is a random questions for all of you out there who have, had babies, for the last 12 months we can hear a baby crying for long periods of time, it breaks my heart but also annoys me as I can't see how a baby can cry non stop every single night for almost a year. Is it normal?

Happy weekend and the recipe I'm making!

I love love rice and prawns (shrimp for you Americans) so when I saw this yummy looking dish popping up on my Facebook feed I got all hungry! It's Cajun shrimp with rice and has butter, garlic, scallions and tomatoes amongst other delicious ingredients. Looks very comforting yet light enough for a rainy summer evening don't you think? Recipe here. Have  a great weekend lovelies!

Wedding Wednesday: Dance

My idea of a successful wedding party involves a lot of dancing, the bride and groom dancing, the guest having fun and lots of laughing! Dance and laughs go together! The right music has to be chosen to keep everyone entertained for hours and to make them say “What a wedding!”. Do tell, if you are married, what did you dance and if not married, what do you want to dance? Not only your first dance but party dance!
