Monday Smiles, bookcases


It’s no secret I’m a bookworm. I was having coffee at home with a friend of mine the other day and as “normal” women do we were chatting (not gossiping) about the new girlfriend of a friend of ours. The chat came to the point where we were both wondering how the shiny 30-year blonde had managed to own a good amount of jewellery (real ones) when with our salary, which is no less than hers, we could barely make the month without an empty bank account wallet. And then my friend looked around my living room, stared at my bookcase bookcases and in the most naive way said, “Well, if you add up the money you have spent on all (a couple of hundreds) books you owe, you would have probably been able to afford diamonds too.” Continue reading…

Ralph Lauren Fall 2015

Ralph Lauren Fall 2015 collection

I’m not a Ralph Lauren girl woman. I tried to be one when a teenager but after endless attempts to get freckles, juicy-pink lips and sunkissed hair like the girls that were staring back at me on my teen-bible Seventeen Magazine decided it was so not me and turned to more mediterranean icons like  Monica Bellucci and Cindy Crawford. However, I just lay my eyes on the Ralph Lauren Fall 2015 runway and couldn’t help but awe at what was parading right in front of my screen.

adidas originals 3Ωραία τα περάσαμε στις γιορτές. Φαγητό, ύπνος, ζεστές σοκολάτες, βόλτες, συναντήσεις με φίλους, φαγητό,  πάρτυ, ξενύχτια, ποτά, φαγητό και αν η λέξη φαγητό εμφανίζετε πολλές φορές σε αυτή την πρόταση που να δείτε το νούμερο στην ζυγαριά που όσο να’ναι λίγο θα έχει ανέβει δεν μπορεί.
Εχθές Δευτέρα που το πρόγραμμα διατροφής Χριστούγεννα τελείωσε, σκέφτηκα αντί να ανέβω στην ζυγαριά και να τρομάξουμε και αυτή και εγώ, να πάω για ψώνια! Και μη σκεφτείς αγαπητή prettynyummy πως αγόρασα ρούχα ένα νούμερο μεγαλύτερο! Αποφάσισα απλά πως το 2015 θα περάσω από το πρόγραμμα γυμναστικής καναπές/ψυγείο στο πρόγραμμα περπάτημα/jogging/ποδήλατο μέχρι να μην φοβάμαι να ανέβω στην ζυγαριά.

adidas originals 1Η σωστή η fashionista όμως δεν φοράει ότι κι ότι ακόμα και όταν ιδρώνει πλάι στο Καλατράβα, σωστά?
Το νέο adidas store στο Ελληνικό (Λ. Βουλιαγμένης 47 & Λ. Χατζηευαγγέλου 14-17) λοιπόν, ήταν ο απόλυτος προορισμός! Θέλεις τα Stan Smith των ονείρων σου, τα sport-chic συνολάκια της Stella McCartney, τα μπουφανάκια και τα φούτερ που φοράει η Carrie όταν τρέχει στο Central Park? Εδώ θα τα βρεις όλα! Τα ομορφότερα ρούχα για γυμναστική και όχι μόνο αφού σίγουρα τα περισσότερα από όσα θα αγοράσεις θα τα φορέσεις και στις βόλτες με τους φίλους!

bedroom gadgets the geek cat needs

bedroom gadgets

With the weather getting colder and colder all I can think of is my bedroom and lying and stretching like a cat under  fluffy warm coverings. No wonder why my mum (it’s her again) calls me a cat. Truth is I sometimes feel I was born on the wrong continent and always wished I lived where it’s always summer or  could at least find a way to move where spring and summer go when they leave my country every six months. As a real geek cat I compiled a list today of the most wanted bedroom gadgets to make winter cuddling better until warmer weather settles back in. Bedroom gadgets that will make a geek cat’s life in bed easier! bedroom gadgets Basics include (1.) soft cuddly fabrics to purrrr on for as long as I need [ZARA Home fur blanket], (2.) stacks of books and of course (3.) a laptop stand so that I can browse the web in the most comfy way. When in bed, I love making plans and (4.) a globe is just perfect to plan my next trip to a (hopefully) warmer place [Levitron Anti-Gravity globe]. bedroom gadgetsA geek cat’s bedroom is not cold and full of metal tech devices only. It’s also a welcome place for the cat itself and a no-entrance space for intruders who might ruin her day so a (1). Door hanger to keep away the unwanted ones is a must-have [I found mine on Etsy] (2.) a luminous Pillow Teddy Bear to add some warmth (buy it here) (3.) The perfect DIY sidetable for my stack of books and notebooks (see how you can make yours here), (4.) a  sorry we are closed, sleeping mask in case anyone manages to enter my room (buy it here) and (5.) a Galaxy Night light to transform my bedroom into space itself (get it here).
